The LLC Occitan forum seeks to promote scholarly activity regarding the language, literature, and culture of Occitania, those regions where langue d’oc (sometimes called Provençal, after one specific area, Provence) is and has been spoken. This language flourished in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, notably in the hands of the vernacular poets known as troubadours and trobaraitz. Though its survival is threatened, various dialects continue to exist in southern France, Catalonia, and Italy.

The current executive committee includes Michelle Bolduc, Sarah-Grace Heller, Court Wells, Sarah Kay, and Jesús Rodríguez-Velasco.

    Dear all,

    Happy new year! As you probably know, the MLA has asked all of the executive committees to solicit nominations from all members for their next executive committee member. If you would like to nominate someone to serve on the Occitan EC, or if you would like to nominate yourself, please reply here or write to me at Thanks!
