The Renaissances Graduate Research Series: "Conversions, Trans*versions, & Metamorphoses"

Mon May 14th 2018, 6:00 - 8:00pm

Speakers): Marjorie Rubright & Dan Kim

Dear members of the Renaissances community,
Please join us next Monday (May 14) at 6pm for our event “Conversions, Trans*versions, & Metamorphoses,” a conversation between Dan Kim (English, Stanford) and Marjorie Rubright (English, UMass, Amherst), 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, Dan Kim, a Ph.D. candidate in English, will present a chapter of his dissertation, titled “These Natures Have Strange Outsides”: Tragicomedy and Metanoia in The Island Princess and The Renegado." He will be joined by Marjorie Rubright, associate Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is the author of Doppelgänger Dilemmas: Anglo-Dutch Relations in Early Modern English Literature and Culture (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2014).
Attached are both pre-circulated readings for the event, as well as a reader’s guide  for each essay. During the event the authors will present their respective essays and set up points of intersection between the two projects. We will then open the floor to discussion and questions.
