Medieval and Early Modern Everything and Speculative Realism
Good news: Eileen Joy is going to steer work in speculative realism with reference to what she charmingly calls “this side of the so-called ‘Enlightenment’ divide.”
I came of scholarly age studying under the aegis of New Historicism and because of that, medievalists and early modern scholars in history and literature were my close colleagues at Oxford.
Recently I decided to give so-called “scholasticism” a go, because I think that label is part of a long history that sets up the correlationist moment circa 1800+.
So, good times!
