Tiffany Werth, "Sexing the Stone: The Non/human Erotic in the Renaissance Imagination"
Department: Comparative LiteratureDate and Time: November 4, 2016 | 12:00 PM-2:00 PM
Event Location: HG 1002
Tiffany Jo Werth is Associate Professor of English at Simon Fraser University. She is the author of The Fabulous Dark Cloister: Romance in England after the Reformation (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2011), and her current book project, entitled The English Lithic Imagination from More to Milton, challenges an entrenched scholarly narrative that equates the Renaissance with human preeminence by tracing the reciprocal relationships of the human and the stony. This project reflects her broader research into Renaissance ecologies of the nonhuman, theories of taxonomy, and ecocriticism.
