Description

This event, to take place on a Wednesday afternoon, 2-7 p.m., in the autumn semester 2020, will focus on the topic of 'Imitating Authors'. The invited guest, Prof. Colin Burrow (All Souls College, Oxford), is an expert on this topic and has devoted a major recent monograph to it, published by Oxford UP. The event will consist of a one-hour lecture by Prof. Burrow, followed by a lengthy question time, in the course of which the PhD students will be asked to engage with issues addressed during the lecture (2 hours); and an interactive workshop, led by Prof. Burrow. The lecture and the workshop will explore the theory and practice of imitatio (the imitation of one author by another) in authors from Plato to Milton and beyond.
