Medieval and Early Modern Literature and Culture
Graduate Studies in English at Northeastern University
Our faculty in Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Northeastern offer a diverse and complementary array of courses from medieval romance to Shakespeare to 17th-Century poetry to popular prose genres. Critical approaches include ecocriticism & animal studies, gender studies, history of the book, material studies, and digital humanities. Our social/intellectual club “Kankedorts and Cockatrices,” meets regularly to discuss criticism, share work, & attend local theater productions. We are active in the Boston early modern scholarly community with events like Professor Leslie’s “Women and Culture in the Early Modern World” seminar at Harvard’s Mahindra Humanities Center.

Please RSVP to Hannah Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, January 25th. Participants are asked to prepare for the discussion by reading the “Feminist Snap” chapter of Sara Ahmed’s Living a Feminist Life and a pamphlet on Annis Dell. Contact Hannah for materials.
