Jun 8. “Endymion and Selene: on the archaeology of female necrophilia in male-centred discourse” Anna Chiara Corradino (Universita de Bologna)

Dear EMMW community,

We sincerely hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.

As promised, we have scheduled another virtual workshop. This time, we welcome Anna Chiara Corradino, who will be presenting the paper “Endymion and Selene: on the archaeology of female necrophilia in male-centred discourse”. Anna, a doctoral candidate in the Univ of Bologna, was working at UChicago under the supervision of prof. Armando Maggi. We are very excited about making this happen remotely.

In preparation for our workshop, please listen to Anna talking about her project and discussing it with us, your workshop coordinators. You can watch the video of our discussion here. Anna’s paper is available here.

Click here to join our Zoom discussion on Monday June 8th at 5pm CST.



Daniela and Brendan.

Sheltered-in-Place Spring + Early Modern Lockdown Library

Dear EMMW community,

We hope you and your close ones are all safe and well during these unprecedented times. In an effort to keep the community alive and together, we will adapt to our current circumstances and continue to have some online activities. While we will not be able to replicate our previous schedule, we hope this format will foster the rich discussions that characterize our group. Having some degree of normalcy and contact will surely help us navigate isolation.
The Early Modern Lockdown Library
Our workshop will replicate an excellent initiative of the RLL department to help colleagues locate digital resources. If you are struggling to find any materials necessary for your research or teaching, reach out to us. We will compile a list of requests and forward to our community. In turn, if you have a digital copy of any of the sources in the list, or any hint as to where to look, please e-mail us so we can share them. As Early Modern scholars, our work intersects in many ways.
