Abstract [en]

Intermediality and the Medieval Ballad

In 2005 a manuscript find containing more than 1,000 documents on the subject of folklore such as ballads, tunes, fairy tales, rhymes and jingles was uncovered at Växjö City Library in Sweden. Out of these, approximately 400 were ballads. The collection has been attributed to George Stephens (1813–1995, British linguist, archaeologist and collector) and Gunnar Hyltén-Cavallius (1818–1889, librarian, theatre manager and collector of folkloristic material). A year after the discovery of the manuscripts, the research programme Intermediality and the Medieval Ballad was launched at Växjö University. In this programme scholars from the fields of musicology, ethnomusicology, literary science, and linguistic methods and theories collaborate. The programme has by now become one of the most vivid research environments for the study of medieval ballads in Scandinavia and involves at present ten scholars in the various fields of research. In January 2008 the first results were presented in the volume En värld för sig själv: Nya studier i medeltida ballader [A world of its own: New studies in medieval ballads], G. Byrman (ed.), Växjö: Växjö University Press.

In my contribution I will summarize the main results that have been presented so far in the programme. I will also describe the infrastructural project Digitising and publishing of medieval ballads on the web that was started as a project within Intermediality and the Medieval Ballad in January 2008 with funding from the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation. The project aims in the long run to develop a web portal that presents sources of the Scandinavian medieval ballads in a form that will be useful to both scholars and musicians.
