Why the hell would an English Ph.D. spend two days researching eels?

“Why the hell would an English Ph.D. spend two days researching eels?” Tangential approaches to seventeenth-century drama What happens when one research project is delayed and another happens almost by accident? What do you do when you’ve spent three precious days in an archive and the rare book you’ve read seems to be useless, even irrelevant? Why would an English Ph.D. spend two days researching eels? This seminar provides a ground-level view of research methods in early modern drama, with an eye to the quirky ways that research actually happens. Professor Denman will show what original copies of early plays actually look like. He will also discuss the difficulties of constructing literary genealogies and explore the unpredictable ways that plays are connected across the gap in the middle of the seventeenth century--the English Civil Wars that closed the theatres from 1642-1660. About Nexus Nexus is a seminar series presented by the faculty at Utica College in which they discuss their research interests and scholarly pursuits.
