New Politics in Early Modern English Literature

Friday, September 9, 2016 - 1:25pm
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Since the advent of new historicism and the later development of cultural materialism, politics have been a topic of interest in early modern literature, and recent studies have asked us to conceive of them in new and broader ways, whether they be environmental, ecological, or cognitive, and to focus on different and overlooked outlets, such as pamphlets, free speech, or emotions.

This panel defines politics as an implementation or projection of governance—by a monarch in a kingdom, the head of a household in a domicile, etc.—and aims to assess early modern literature’s ability to present a wide scope of competing politics or political relations by offering the interpretation and/or voicing of plural or alternate realities.

Florence, 7 April 2017

The 2017 IASEMS Graduate Conference at The British Institute of Florence is a one-day interdisciplinary forum open to PhD students and researchers who have obtained their doctorates within the past 5 years.

Dissimulation is but a faint kind of policy, or wisdom; for it asketh a strong wit, and a strong heart, to know when to tell truth, and to do it. Therefore it is the weaker sort of politics, that are the great dissemblers! (Francis Bacon, “Of Dissimulation”)

Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date.  From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.
