Please join us Monday, March 11 at 6pm in Building 260, Room 252 for our event “Vnfortunate Termes: Thomas Nashe and the Early Modern Literary Marketplace,” a conversation between Juan Lamata (English, Stanford) and Alan Stewart (English & Comparative Literature, Columbia University), part of the Renaissances Graduate Research Series, which stages conversations between advanced Ph.D. students at Stanford and interlocutors of their work.
For our winter event, Juan Lamata, a Ph.D. candidate in English, will present a chapter of his dissertation, titled “Masterless I: Form and Commodity in The Unfortunate Traveler." He will be joined by Alan Stewart, Professor and Chair of the English & Comparative Literature Department at Columbia University, who will present his essay, “‘Tois For Private Gentleman?’: Thomas Nashe’s Letter to William Cotton.” Alan Stewart is most recently the author of the volume on early modern life writing for The Oxford History of Life-Writing (2019) and Shakespeare’s Letters (OUP, 2008).
Both authors will present their respective essays, which may be obtained from the chair of the Renaissances group, Michael Menna. These presentations will set up points of intersection between the two projects, and we will then open the floor to discussion and questions. Dinner will be served.
