Early in October, we’ll be pleased to welcome Brooke Conti to our campus. Professor Conti is Associate Professor of English at Cleveland State University. Her book, Confessions of Faith in Early Modern England, was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2014; it explores the paradoxical relationship between autobiography and polemic in an age of religious conflict. She has also published articles on Shakespeare, Milton, Donne, and Thomas Browne in venues such as Modern Philology, Milton Studies, and several edited collections. Her current projects include a second monograph, Religious Nostalgia from Shakespeare to Milton, and a scholarly edition of Thomas Browne’s Religio Medici, which she is co-editing with Reid Barbour for Oxford University Press as part of OUP’s Complete Works of Thomas Browne. Professor Conti will visit two English Department classes, and also participate in a paper-in-progress workshop with our MARS faculty, at 4pm on Monday 10/2, in 4188 JFSB.
