The periodical writer often depended upon establishing a distinguishable identity to achieve his/her popularity. Yet some of the most successful examples were pseudonymous figures like Charles Lamb's Elia and James Hogg's Ettrick Shepherd. Such figures often played fast and loose with notions of stable identity, altering and contradicting their fictional backstories with each month's contribution. Operating through such mercurial personas, these writers utilized the market's potential for fluctuating identity described by Lynch.

This NeMLA seminar (March 15-18, 2012 in Rochester, NY) will examine Renaissance drama and poetry via the history of the lower sensorium—the senses of smell, taste, and touch. Though the lower senses were often relegated to a secondary position in medical and philosophical texts, they defined every moment of a subject's daily movements through his or her world. From the taste of the bread and beer that comprised most meals to the overwhelming range of smells that filled every crevice of the early modern city, men and women understood and maneuvered their bodies, encounters, desires, and labor through the three senses comprising the lower sensorium.
