Date and Time: 
Tuesday, May 15, 2018. 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Humanities Center Boardroom
Workshop: 
Workshop in Poetics
Meeting Description: 

Clare Lees (English, King's College London) will present her paper titled “‘Medieval, Somehow:’ Post-War British Poetry and Early Medieval Culture in Britain and Ireland.” Jesse Nathan (English, Stanford) will serve as respondent. Followed by an open discussion. Please see a short abstract below and contact melihle@stanford.edu for the paper.

The paper (an extract from a longer piece of writing) reflects on how early medieval culture has been used as a resource for post-War British poetry. Bringing together early medieval studies and modern British studies, the paper is framed as a critical conversation based in part on the anthology of poetry that I am currently editing for Bloodaxe Books.  This work is one dimension of my research as a Major Research Fellow of the Leverhulme Trust (2016-18).
