Mark Rainey & Theo Reeves-Evison (eds) Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths

Suggested themes: Aesthetics of Repair, Technologies of Repair, Post-Colonial Reparations, Reparative Justice

The following is an indication of the conceptual range of 'the repair' which we intend to explore in this edited collection. Submissions may address the following themes, although they are not limited to them:

The Ironies of Alchemy in Early Modern English Literature

Chaucer's "Canon's Yeoman's Tale" is the first great satire of alchemy in English literature, but in its final lines it nevertheless suggests that the Philosopher's Stone is a genuine secret deeply hidden in the knowledge of Christ. As Stanton Linden observes, Chaucer's sustained ridicule of alchemy is thus accompanied by the suggestion that the opus alchymicum is not entirely a fool's errand.
