Klekar & Nagle onstage at ASECS
Colleagues Cynthia Klekar and Christopher Nagle recently returned from the annual meeting of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, held this year in Portland, OR.
Cynthia chaired a panel, “Reconsidering the English Stage 1660-1730,” and served as a conference mentor to a graduate student from Rutgers. Chris participated in a roundtable session on “Judith Butler in the Long 18th Century”—discussing the relevance of Butler’s recent work on ethics and alterity for current critical debate in the field—and joined both the Gay and Lesbian Caucus and Irish Studies Caucus in planning for next year’s conference sessions in Richmond.
