About this product
- DescriptionThis work explores the institutional contexts in which the language was adopted and transmitted as well as the privilege it came to confer on those that studied it. Waquet demonstrates how Latin became a symbol of status and ultimately shows that rather than disappearing this has given way to a stalgic exoticism such that water companies and car-models w use Latin names.
- Author BiographyFrancoise Waquet is a director of research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris. Among her books are Latin, and in French, Les fetes royales sous la Restauration ou l'Ancien Regime retrouve and La Republique des Lettres (with Hans Bots).
