Playing Baboon

On Thursday October 11, the Department of English and Comparative
Literature's Early Modern Seminar is delighted to welcome

HOLLY DUGAN (George Washington University)

for a talk entitled

"To Bark With Judgement: Playing Baboon in Early Modern London"

Holly Dugan’s research and teaching interests explore relationships
between history, literature, and material culture. Her scholarship
focuses on questions of gender, sexuality, and the boundaries of the
body in late medieval and early modern England. She is the author of
/The Ephemeral History of Perfume: Scent and Sense in Early Modern
England/ (Johns Hopkins UP, 2011), and is currently working on a
book-length project, co-authored with Scott Maisano, that examines the
pre-modern history of primatology through the lens of Shakespeare.

6:00 PM
612 Philosophy Hall (6th floor seminar room)

All welcome!
