2010 Conference - Geneva, 30 June - 2 July 2010

Medieval and Early Modern Authorship

Authorship has come to the forefront of medieval and early modern English studies in recent years, as is shown by the wealth of important publications in this area. The objective of this conference is to take stock of a duly socialized form of authorship, which recognizes that while authors have agency, that agency is circumscribed by the multi-faceted social, legal, institutional, and intertextual pressures within which authorship takes place.

Confirmed plenary speakers include Colin Burrow (Oxford); Patrick Cheney (Penn State); Helen Cooper (Cambridge); Rita Copeland (Pennsylvania); Robert Edwards (Penn State); Alastair Minnis (Yale).
