Description

This conference session invites attention to the role of bodies and bodily sensation in Sidneian poetics, ethics, and epistemologies. How do Philip and Mary Sidney and/or their literary admirers and imitators imagine the pleasures, problems, and possibilities of embodiment: literal and metaphorical, individual and corporate? How reliably do bodies function in their works as instruments of knowledge; and by extension, as instantiations and/or interrogations of political, religious, and intellectual authority? Do some bodies matter more than others? If so, how and why? This session is designed foster conversation on these questions from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including (but not limited to) studies of gender, sexuality, book history, race, religion, and the history of science.
