Occitan Cultural Initiatives

Dr. Rai d’HonorĂ© was most recently on the faculty of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program at East Carolina University where she lectured on the troubadour tradition at the Fletcher School of Music and gave performances at colleges, such as Duke and Dartmouth, and at festivals and salons.  Composer of the CD Pretz e Paratge about the Occitan culture in prose and song, she has just returned from France recording the French version with the group La Rosa Trobadoresca, and being filmed by France Television for an upcoming program.

Rai teaches about the land and history of Occitania (southern France), a vibrant blossoming society that, during the twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, offered a more tolerant, educated, and creative culture than many societies of the twenty-first century.
