Event description: 

Thinking Environment in Early Modernity is a speaker series focused on intermedial problems of conceptualizing and representing the environment, both in the Early Modern period and in transhistorical contexts. To start off the series, Joseph Campana (Rice University) will deliver a talk entitled, “Thinking with Bees” on Thursday, February 16th at 4:30pm in PH 207 (Phelps Hall) and on Zoom (see below).

Joseph Campana is a poet, arts writer, and scholar of the literature and culture of Early Modern England. His books include The Pain of Reformation: Spenser, Vulnerability, and the Ethics of Masculinity and Renaissance Posthumanism (co-edited with Scott Maisano). “Thinking with Bees” will incorporate materials from Campana’s upcoming two-volume Lesser Living Creatures of the Renaissance (co-edited with Keith Botelho).

In April, the series will continue with a talk on Munbangdo by Eleanor Soo-ah Hyun (Associate Curator for Korean Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art).
