Fall 2015 Workshop schedule coming soon

Fall 2015 Speaker Series

Monday October 5:
Susan Crane, Sarah Kay, Eleanor Johnson, Joe Johnson, and Karl Steel
“Animal Studies and Environmental Studies”

This panel of NYC medievalists will introduce graduate students to the diverse ways in which animal and environmental approaches are changing medieval studies. Each of us will begin with a compact statement of just what these approaches are and what they offer, together with a concise example from our current research and writing, as a preface to discussion among those present. If GSAC provides some financial support, the conversation will continue over dinner at a local restaurant.

(Place TBD, late afternoon time TBD)
Monday November 9:
Christopher Cannon and Paul Strohm
“The Ad Hoc Schoolroom”

Professor Cannon has accepted our invitation to discuss Latinate education and poetic composition in later medieval England, serving as a curtain-raiser to his forthcoming Oxford University Press volume, From Literacy to Literature.  The session will begin with a conversation with Paul Strohm about the announced topic and about the contours of the book to which it will belong, then moving to further discussion among those present.  Relevant extracts from the book will be made available to participants, via email attachment, prior to the session.

(Place TBD, late afternoon time TBD)
