Hurford Humanities Center's Mellon Fellow's Symposium for 2008
Shakespeare and the Blending Mind: April 18 - 19
This interdisciplinary symposium will consider Shakespeare’s poetic and dramatic artistry from the perspective of "conceptual blending," the mind’s ability to create things by combination; metaphor is one form of blending we’ll consider, and theatrical illusion is another.
The symposium has been organized by Michael Booth, Mellon Post-doctoral Fellow, Haverford College and sponsored by the John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center at Haverford College.
This event is free and open to the public and the program includes refreshments and lunch.
