The Arrival, Form and Meaning of the Early Modern Grotesque in England
When Tuesday 24 May, 5 - 6.30pm
Where Cinema 327, Robert Webster Building, UNSW Kensington
This seminar is based on Professor Semler's introduction to his book manuscript, 'The Early Modern Grotesque: English Sources and Documents, 1500-1700'-a collection of 287 sources and documents from English Renaissance texts that discuss or refer to the grotesque.
An aim of the collection is to help widen the scholarly discussion of the early modern English grotesque beyond the usual parameters which tend to prioritise the theories of Wolfgang Kayser and Mikhail Bakhtin. It is hoped that a richer sense of the specifically English grotesque from 1500-1700 will emerge from this analysis of the textual archive.
Liam Semler is Professor of Early Modern Literature at the University of Sydney. His main research interests are: Shakespeare, literary studies and modern pedagogical systems; early modern literature and the visual arts; the classical inheritance in the Renaissance; and women's writing from 1500-1700.
