Cary Howie, “On Transfiguration”
November 9, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Professor Howie thinks about how contemporary American poets re-imagine early Christianity, using transfiguration to talk about the persistence of figures as they become transformed, and how poetic and theological concerns speak to gender and sexuality. His books include Claustrophilia: The Erotics of Enclosure in Medieval Literature (Palgrave, 2007) and the co-authored Sanctity and Pornography in Medieval Culture: On the Verge (Manchester, 2010).
Cary Howie is Associate Professor of Romance Studies at Cornell University.
This colloquium is presented by the Center for Cultural Studies, with staff support provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
