How Gardens Feel: The Natural History of Sensation in Spenser and Milton

Michael Schoenfeldt, University of Michigan

Wednesday 18 April 2018
3.30 -5.00pm, drinks afterwards
Location: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Main Building
Room: 13A33

Abstract
In this talk, Michael Schoenfeldt explores the relation between the environment and the sensation of pleasure in Spenser and Milton – the two greatest epic poets of early modern England. Spenser and Milton are fascinating because they repeatedly focus on the scrupulous calibration of physical sensation with the environmental network. Schoenfeldt’s focus is on pleasure, and, to a lesser degree, pain – sensations that are invariably the product of particular kinds of osmotic interaction between the individual and the environment. Schoenfeldt argues that Spenser is primarily concerned with how environments can pollute individuals. Milton by contrast, is more concerned with how individuals pollute environments. His great epic depicts, among many other things, the first example of human-induced climate change.

Michael Schoenfeldt is John R. Knott, Jr. Collegiate Professor of English at the University of Michigan. He is the author of Bodies and Selves in Early Modern England: Physiology and Inwardness in Spenser, Shakespeare, Herbert, and Milton (1999) and The Cambridge Introduction to Shakespeare’s Poetry (2010). He is currently researching a book-length study of pain and pleasure in early modern England.

Odorama: Scent and Scentsuality

With Lauryn Mannigel, Astrid Groot, Klara Ravat, Roald de Boer, Ibo Bakker

29 November, Mediamatic Biotoop, Amsterdam

Why are we attracted to some people and not to others? Many answers that try to explain sexual attraction point towards pheromones as a biological explanation for strong bodily desire. Scent is often seen as the lowest amongst the senses. It is the one that makes no sense, but that often causes the most immediate bodily response. Before you know it, you are drawn to somebody. During this edition of Odorama, we explore the scentsual aspect of scent.

ACCESS/Graduate Lecture by Ulinka Rublack

How can we research the emotional qualities of objects? How were emotions and material culture interlinked in the early modern period and beyond? A noted historian of dress in the period, Ulinka Rublack will focus on the new role of feathers in head-wear to stimulate emotions in surprising ways, which intertwined with new forms of global exchange and understandings of masculinity.

The paper draws on fresh research, related to Professor Rublack research project on Materialized Identities: https://www.materializedidentities.com/
