The Department of English is excited to host professor Dan Brayton, Professor of English and American Literatures and a member of the Environmental Studies Program at Middlebury College in Vermont, for our second research forum of the academic year.
He teaches courses on the literature of the sea, environmental literature, early modern drama (including Shakespeare), utopias and dystopias, regional literature, and world literature. His monograph, Shakespeare's Ocean: An Ecocritical Exploration (University of Virginia Press 2012) won the Northeast Modern Language Association Book Award, and his co-edited volume Ecocritical Shakespeare (with Lynne Dickson Bruckner) was published in 2011.
All are welcome to join us on Friday, October 29th from 2:30-4:00pm on Zoom for an engaging discussion on Professor Brayton’s 'Shakespeare's Fishponds: Matter, Metaphor, Markets'. Join us as we take a deep dive into "blue cultural studies"!
