MEMORI’s final two research papers this semester focus on Shakespearean drama and their interrelation with the intellectual and cultural medieval habitus. On April 14, Prof. Elizabeth Archibald (University of Durham) examines Shakespeare’s indebtedness to and reinscription of medieval analogues in All’s Well that Ends Well. And on April 28, Prof. Jürgen Pieters travels from Ghent University to deliver a paper on his ongoing research into early modern drama and consolation – ‘”Words, Words, Words”: Hamlet and Consolation’.
Both events take place in room 2.47 of the John Percival Building, starting at 5.15. As ever, the papers will conclude with a wine reception and a meal.
