Michael Ursell:“Surviving Humanism: Petrarchan Autobiography and Ecology”
May 30, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
While critics have dismissed an image of the Renaissance humanist Petrarch as a nature-lover, this talk reconsiders a poetics of the living in his work. Professor Ursell looks at how Petrarch’s “life writing” and “life reading” have been understood in relation to global ecology and world literature.
