Title: "What lay beneath their names: Social Death, The Afterlife of Property, and Pilate's Insistence of Black Being in Song of Solomon

Moderator: Marquis Bey

Copies of the paper will be available in the EDR mailbox in the English Department mailroom (GS 250, on the far right of the wall of English grad student boxes) and on the EDR Blackboard site.

Refreshments will be served.

The English Department Roundtable is a forum for graduate students in the English Department to share ideas across a wide variety of fields, time periods, and methodologies.  Open to students at all stages of the program, the EDR gives us an opportunity to discuss our work in an informal setting with a group of our peers, to give and receive feedback about current projects, and to learn about the work being done by our colleagues. At a time in which the tremendous diversity of literary study has made it increasingly difficult to grasp the discipline as a whole, the purpose of the EDR is to foster a greater sense of intellectual community and cohesion within Cornell’s English Department, and to strengthen our work through increased collaboration with our peers.

Sponsored by the Class of 1916 Chair.
