Professor Kenneth Graham, of UWaterloo’s English Department, has announced an exciting new initiative, which includes presentations by two UWaterloo alumni, Dr. Danila Sokolov (a PhD graduate and Banting Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of English, Brock University) and Dr. Emily Anglin (who holds an undergraduate degree from UWaterloo, and is now a Fellow at Victoria College’s Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies). As he writes:
“I’m happy to announce a new forum for the presentation and discussion of research on early modern English literature and culture. The Waterloo Renaissance Workshop will offer opportunities for students, faculty, and independent scholars to share their work with other specialists in a more relaxed setting than conferences and formal lectures normally provide.
The format will vary, but meetings will usually begin with a 20-30 minute presentation, followed by discussion for the rest of the hour. Conversations may continue beyond this, aided by refreshments. For the Fall 2014 semester, the meetings will be held Thursdays from 4-5 p.m. in Hagey Hall 232.
October 9: Toby Malone (Postdoctoral Fellow, Drama, University of Waterloo)
November 13: Walter Lim (Associate Professor, English, National University of Singapore)
The presenters in the Winter 2015 semester will be Danila Sokolov and Emily Anglin (dates and times TBA). More information about the presenters and their topics will follow as the presentations draw closer.”
