Seminars : Resident Fellows Seminar

Caroline Jewers' Humanities Fellowship will be devoted to a book project analyzing the performance of emotion in medieval French literature of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries as it is expressed in a variety of genres (principally romance, feudal epic and lyric poetry). She aims to contextualize the literary encoding of emotion by looking at contemporary medical, philosophical and theological discourses, blending literary analysis with sources from interdisciplinary fields including history, history of medicine, classical studies, philosophy and theology, history of art, music, gender studies and cultural/performance studies.

Lunch will be provided to those who request it by Thursday, October 2. RSVP to hallcenter@ku.edu or (785) 864-4798.
