What is modernity? Where are modernity's points of origin? Where are its boundaries? And what lies beyond those boundaries? Professors Ellen Rentz, John Farrell, and Seth Lobis of the CMC Literature Department will join Jason Crawford of Union University and author of "Allegory and Enchantment: An Early Modern Poetics" (Oxford) and Blanford Parker, author of "The Triumph of Augustan Poetics" (Cambridge) for a lively discussion of how early modern English authors envisioned themselves breaking from the medieval.
The discussion is sponsored by the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies.
