The Renaissances Graduate Research Series: "Table Talk: Eating and Ethics in Early Modern England"
Speakers): David Goldstein & Hannah Smith Drelich
Please join us Monday, April 29 at 6pm in Building 260, Room 252 for a conversation between Hannah Smith-Drelich (English, Stanford) and David Goldstein (English, York 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 spring event, Hannah Smith-Drelich, a Ph.D. candidate in English, will present a chapter of her dissertation, titled “‘Anger’s my meat’: Extreme Appetite in Shakespeare’s Coriolanus." She will be joined by David Goldstein, Professor of English at York University, who will present his essay, “‘I preserved all’: Hannah Woolley and the Community of Collapse.” David Goldstein is the author of Eating and Ethics in Shakespeare’s England (Cambridge University Press, 2013), co-winner of the Shakespeare’s Globe Book Award.
Both authors will present their respective essays, which may be obtained from the chair of the Renaissances group, mlmenna [at] stanford.edu (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.
Please RSVP to: mlmenna [at] stanford.edu.
