Bizzell Memorial Library: Seminar Room 339

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Space is limited. Last day for registration is Monday, November 6.

For OU faculty, staff, & graduate students

Assigned texts to be read in advance of the seminar will be sent to all enrolled participants. A light lunch will be served.

Dr. David Anderson’s focus is on Shakespeare’s last tragedy, Coriolanus. He will argue that Coriolanus depicts a world where sovereignty — personal and political, conceptual and material — is regarded as the highest good and where social bonds are conceived of purely in terms of power. His seminar presentation forms part of his current book project on Shakespeare’s Greco-Roman plays, and a related journal article on the common ground between Coriolanus and Satan from John Milton’s Paradise Lost.

The OU Humanities Forum is supported by the Senior Vice President & Provost, the Vice President for Research, the Office of the President, and the OU Libraries.
