In/Attention: Classroom Distraction and Early English Drama

January 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

CMRS Roundtable Standard histories of drama understand the emergence of liturgical performance—as recorded in Æthelwold of Winchester’s late tenth-century monastic customary, the Regularis Concordia—in isolation. In this talk, Erica Weaver (English, UCLA) situates it alongside contemporaneous school texts to establish that it is actually part of a wider performative mode that promoted heightened concentration as the ultimate goal of monastic life.

English Bibles and their Paratexts, 1525-1611

January 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

CMRS Roundtable The King James version, as we all know, has no illustrations, no glosses, no indices, no chronologies, and, basically, no nuttin except for a rather long and dull preface by Miles Smith, the soon-to-be Bishop of Gloucester. Earlier English bibles are much more interesting. They have multi-page charts that look like amusement park rides; woodcuts of the Annunciation with a star-faced Moses perched on the windowsill of Mary’s bedroom; patristic encomia on church music, celebrating its power to…

January 29 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The hybrid Jew will be discussed from the theoretical perspective of postcolonial studies, feminism and queer studies, post-structural French philosophy and traditional Jewish sources. The films that will be discussed are mixtures of Jewish characters and themes with genres that usually do not include Jews (for example the…
