Old and New Humanism(s): Studies in Medieval and Early Modern Culture

Humanism—the renowned contribution of the Renaissance to academic inquiry and creative endeavors—began as a movement to recover the classical past and to explore what it means to be human. However, as a way of living, humanism did not always align with contemporary views on politics, education, religion, and culture. Thus, humanism has been a subject of debate since its origins. These conflicts still reverberate in our own discussions with regard to the pertinence and role of the humanities today.

Medieval drama taught its audiences not only about virtuous living but, more importantly, a good death and a joyful afterlife. Miracle plays re-played the most significant and most spectacular deaths known from the Gospels, while morality plays, such as Everyman, imagined the act of dying and the prospects for posthumous happiness of their main characters.

The resurgence of formalist interests in recent years has sparked new discussions of the conception, role, and significance of form in literary and cultural studies as well as pedagogies. In her 2007 PMLA essay "What Is New Formalism," Marjorie Levinson lays out several strains of new formalism emerging in the American academy, which simultaneously embrace a renewal of attention to aesthetic form and express divergent emphases and agendas.
