The shadow of Geoffrey Chaucer loomed large over the century after his death.  Later poets such as John Lydgate used words coined by him, explicitly referenced Chaucer’s mastery of poetry, and mentioned their relationship with him in the development of their poetic personae and the writing of their poetic works.  These connections, in turn, have left a tradition of scholarship that takes such conceits at face value and maligns the poetry of the fifteenth century for allegedly not being the equal of Chaucer’s.

Whether it is tweeting Lydgate’s Fall of Princes, making witnesses of his poems both in and out of the codex available to scholars worldwide, or engaging in digital prosopography, the “Digital Turn” in recent literary scholarship provides heretofore unavailable opportunities for engagement with the poetry of John Lydgate.  However, this is not the first time the introduction of new technology has effected reception, understanding, and interpretation of the poet.  The shift from manuscript to print spread Lydgate’s poems in numbers that were not possible before, while modern editorial practices developed during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have created a set of “standard” editions of the poet’s works, for good and ill.

Medieval studies has made serious inroads into inquiries surrounding the relationship between objects and environments, between objects and their spiritual power, as well as between descriptions of objects and their literal presence. These issues also pertain to Lydgate studies, as his relationship with matter is complex. As Lisa H.

Life writing is a genre and a practice of criticism (Marlene Kadar, 1992) that refers to history, literature, and documentary and includes the sub-genres of memoirs, biography, oral testimonies, diaries, epistolary works and personal narratives. The genre writing has been a favorite one for research in the humanities serving to explore identity formation and inner dialogue with the self as well as with critical transitions, such as cultural adaptation, diaspora, migration, and other traumatic experiences. Life writings are an important resource to understand individuals, communities and the cultural impacts of historical periods. The immediate effects of personal letters and journals disclose the past of individuals and collectives.

‘For they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time’: Negotiating Shakespearean Characters in Performance from Past to Present

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

Rethinking Early Modern Subjectivity (NeMLA 2017)

Friday, September 30, 2016

Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.
