Show and Tell: Evidence, Erotics, and Embodiment in the Premodern World
February 3, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Lunchtime Roundtable Discussion with:
Tina Chronopoulos, SUNY-Binghamton, Classics/IRH
Ari Friedlander, University of Mississippi, English
Dana Oswald, UW-Parkside, English/IRH
Jennifer Row, Boston University, French/IRH
When researching the history of sexuality, or thinking about past desires, erotics, and intimacies, what counts as evidence? What methods are crucial for some fields, and forgotten by others? Four scholars share their thoughts on their own unique approaches to interweave erotics, intimacies, and intensities from the past, cobbling together fragments, tracing sensations in literature, unearthing unexpected archives. The roundtable explores how sexualities in the past can be both incomprehensibly foreign and strangely familiar.
A light lunch/refreshments will be served; RSVP and questions may be directed to Jennifer Row (firstname.lastname@example.org)
