Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Interdisciplinary Network
Second Graduate Symposium
New York University | May 17, 2018
MARGIN reads Messy Bodies
Last year, in our end-of-the-year symposium focusing on the afterlife of Ovid in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, we found ourselves confronting surprisingly queer, surprisingly metamorphosed, messy bodies, bodies that frequently demanded decidedly messy methodological engagements, between disciplinary categories or at their margins. With all this in mind, we continue our group exploration of the body with this year’s symposium.
