"Who Has an 'I'?: Testimony in Medieval England," Patricia Dailey and Paul Strohm

"Who Has an 'I'?: Testimony in Medieval England," Patricia Dailey and Paul Strohm

Event Category: 
Talks

Nov 3 - The Medieval Colloquium invites you to a conversation between Professor Patricia Dailey (Columbia University) and Professor Paul Strohm (NYU, Emeritus Columbia University). The speakers will give short presentations, followed by general discussion. Paul Strohm will offer brief observations on typical features of medieval legal testimony, and will then move to some more specific suggestions (drawn from the documents of the Gunpowder Plot) about the emergence within legal discourse of what he calls the "Testimonial 'I.'" Patricia Dailey will explore some of the complexities of the testimonial “I” in the Old English “Swerian” — oath taking, looking at the relation between the individual and the community, the role of formulaic language, and the role of the body in the absence of the “I.”
