Sideian Poetics: Making Sense (51st Annual Congress on Medieval Studies: May 12-15, 2016)

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 - 11:22am
International Sidney Society

Sponsored by the International Sidney society, "Sidneian Poetics: Making Sense" invites attention to the role of bodies and bodily sensation in Sidneian poetics, ethics, and epistemologies. How do Philip and Mary Sidney and/or their literary admirers and imitators imagine the pleasures, problems, and possibilities of embodiment: literal and metaphorical, individual and corporate? How reliably do bodies function in their works as instruments of knowledge; and by extension, as instantiations and/or interrogations of political, religious, and intellectual authority? Do some bodies matter more than others? If so, how and why?

Sidneian Networks: Medieval to Post-Modern (51st Annual Congress on Medieval Studies: May 12-15, 2016)

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 - 11:14am
International Sidney Society

Sponsored by the International Sidney Society, this conference session seeks to expand the traditional circumference of the "Sidney Circle" centered on the literary legacies of Philip and Mary Sidney. Work in the digital humanities, recent studies of manuscript circulation, revised understandings of authorship, and the ongoing work of recovering women's writing all contribute to current work re-imagining literary networks. We invite proposals that consider literary networks, from the vantages of recent digital work, editorial practice, the circulation of texts, patronage, and authorship.
