The Romance of Sidney and Spenser

This seminar explores how Sidney and Spenser engage with and develop the romance framework alongside and against their contemporaries. How do these poets revise, contest, or maintain conventions of romance in their own works? How do they represent and reconcile the genre's tendency toward contradiction, conflation, and multiplicity? How do they influence later authors and contribute to the evolution of the genre and its concerns in the English tradition?

Feminist critics argue that when Robert Boyle proposed his ideal scientific spectator, the 'modest witness,' he set an exclusionary standard, barring women from scientific production. This panel explores femininity and the female body in the making of scientific knowledge from the Scientific Revolution to the early 1800s. Did women employ discrete processes or ideologies, devise experiments, and construct evidence in ways that were fundamentally distinct from the masculine university model? Broadly, how did gender affect their scientific acts?
