About

Renaissance literary studies and particularly English Renaissance literary studies have long been the place where new theoretical developments have been most vocally championed and debated.  As literary critics challenge and move beyond the cultural studies paradigm dominant in the late twentieth century, early modern studies are leading the way herunterladen. From the “New Formalism,” which argues that inventions in literary form and genre are just as powerful cultural forces as are politics and economics; to a new focus on that great early modern invention, the printed book, as an agent of social as well as literary change; to a new focus on women as writers, readers, and patrons of the literary arts – these and other developments are changing the field in exciting, but as yet undefined, ways itunes. Undefined, because many of the scholars at the forefront of these new developments are relatively early in their careers.

“The Next English Renaissance: New Directions in Early Modern Literary Criticism” is a one-day symposium bringing five exciting mid-career scholars to CU-Boulder.  Heidi Brayman Hackel (UC Riverside), Andrew Escobedo (Ohio University), Heather James (USC), Henry S elster formular 2017. Turner (Rutgers), and Julian Yates (University of Delaware) will join us to discuss where the study of early modern English literature is going next, and how we will get there.  In the morning, they will present from their current work in progress and will situate their current research projects in relation to contemporary developments in the field.   In the afternoon, they will join CU faculty and graduate students, as well as early modernists from other Front Range universities, in a seminar on Shakespeare’s Hamlet and on key works of recent criticism nabu app.
