Categories: Events

In November 2021 CEMS ANU members, including two HDR candidates, spoke to their most recent research in progress. Chaired by Senior Lecturer Kate Flaherty, the first panellists spoke on ‘Double-take: Revisionary Readings of Early Modern Texts.’ Centre Director Ros Smith chaired the second panel themed ‘Unusual Agency: Faith, Reform, and Mobility.’

Papers ranged from an investigation of the racialized-feminine in Hildegard von Bingen’s Scivias 12th century manuscript (Dr karo Moret-Miranda) to the intersection of science, religion and political philosophy with practical and popular politics during the Age of Revolution, up to the early 19th century (Dr Alex Cook). For details of the other papers on staging witchcraft in Shakespeare, women and monastic reform in the Medieval West, the political interventions of touring actresses, and published Mother’s legacies in seventeenth century England see the abstracts and full program here.
