Early Modern Literature Graduate Seminar, Michaelmas Term 2009

Early Modern Literature Graduate Seminar

Presenting part of his current project on early modern literary patronage, Richard McCabe (Merton College) explored the dazzling complexities of persona in Spenser and his contemporaries. Paul Yachnin (McGill University) spoke on the garden scene in Shakespeare’s Richard II in a paper which emerged from a large-scale interdisciplinary project at McGill University, ‘Making Publics’ (http://makingpublics.mcgill.ca). Peter Davidson (University of Aberdeen) offered a particularly rich interdisciplinary perspective in a paper on what he terms the ‘Universal Baroque’, ranging from neo-Latin poetry to cultural hybridity in early modern Mexico and China. For an explanation of the picture below you will need to turn to his book The Universal Baroque (Manchester University Press, 2008).
