About the CSRL network

This database and related publications form a pilot study for the Code-switching in Roman Literature network (CSRL) set up by Alex Mullen in 2015. The database gives readers of Elder, O. and Mullen, A. (2019) The Language of Roman Letters: Bilingual Epistolography from Cicero to Fronto (Cambridge University Press) access to the data which forms the empirical basis of that analysis.

Currently the network consists of those who have been involved in the preliminary study, but we hope the network will expand to welcome further collaborators and, it is hoped, additional texts and authors will be added to the dataset.

Research into code-switching is currently being undertaken in several departments of modern linguistics and literature, medieval and classical studies, amongst others, and we hope this network will serve to consolidate, amplify and publicize this work.
