Last July Vox.com picked up my blog post from In The Middle critiquing Greenblatt’s Swerve and published as an article in slightly revised form:
“Stephen Greenblatt’s The Swerve racked up prizes – and completely misled you about the Middle Ages.” Vox.com, 20 July 2016.
I am delighted to get a broader audience for this important argument.
In December I published a blog article in Norwegian, titled “Hvorfor ‘kvinnelige forfattere’? (Why ‘women writers’?) on the national Norwegian research site forskning.no. I wrote it originally in Norwegian, so I don’t have an English translation to hand, but google translate will probably handle my basic language pretty well 🙂
For the last two years I have been a part of an international network of researchers on ‘Women’s Literary Culture and the Medieval Canon‘, led by Diane Watt and funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Last summer we had a first workshop with just the 8 network partners at Chawton House in England, this summer we have our second workshop in Boston in July, and next summer we will organize a larger conference here at the University of Bergen. I am excited to host.
Here is the official Call for Papers. Bergen, Norway, is an amazing place to visit, and this conference will be a very worthwhile intellectual experience. Consider submitting an abstract!
