The 11th century trobadors and trobairitz of Occitania, a region encompassing parts of southern France, Italy's Occitan Valleys, Monaco, and Catalonia's Val d'Aran, have long inspired American poetsmost notably Ezra Pound, with their lyrical, secular, and often subversive verse-commentary on the culture, politics, and love affairs of their time. Mythologized as wandering mystics, these professional poets set the stage for everything from forms like the cantata and sestina to Top 40 love songs. The Trobadors symposium celebrates the riches of Occitan poetry and culture, from the Middle Ages to today - with Jakes Aymonino, Pierre Joris, Deborah Kapchan, Sarah Kay, Domenja Lekuona, Nicole Peyrafitte, Richard Sieburth, Alem Surre-Garcia, and Joan Francés Tisnèr
