Description

This book launch and roundtable celebrates the release of the landmark collection Queer Milton, an overdue intervention in the field of Milton criticism. A glittering assemblage of the volume’s contributors will discuss their essays, with topics ranging over gender and sexuality, ecocriticism, and biopolitics. They will also point to paths not yet taken, to queer Miltons waiting to be explored. Mario DiGangi will situate panelists’ remarks in the larger landscape of queer early modern studies. Co-sponsored with Renaissance Studies Certificate Program and The Joseph A. Wittreich Lectures in Milton Studies
