Dr Susan Anderson, Representing Early Modern Disability, January 16, Birkbeck, room 101, 30 Russell Square, 6.30 pm
Members free (membership £7), non-members £4
Susan Anderson is Senior Lecturer in English at Leeds Trinity University. Her research concentrates on interdisciplinary approaches to performance in early modern drama and spectacle. She has published widely on a range of early modern performance genres. In 2012, she was one of the organisers of a 3-day international conference on “Disability and the Victorians: Challenging Legacies”, and later that summer, she organised a day conference on “Disability and the Renaissance”. Her talk for the Early Modern Society emerges from her project, Disability and Shakespeare, which focuses on theatrical drama in order to examine the intersections between early modern literature and disability.
We look forward to welcoming you on Friday 16 January and to all our other events of the year (details here).
