Reading Against Distraction in Early Medieval England
Junior Faculty Book Manuscript Workshop
This session with Assistant Professor Erica Weaver (English) explores intersections of attention, obedience, and performance in 10th- and 11th-c. Benedictine monasticism as she examines these issues in her book Reading Against Distraction in Early Medieval England. Reviewers are Bruce Holsinger (University of Virginia) and Katherine O’Brien O’Keeffe (UC Berkeley).
These workshops aim to provide quality feedback on a first full draft of a pre-tenure book manuscript in preparation for publication. Workshop participants are faculty members and doctoral graduate students selected by the book manuscript’s author.
This is a continuing series and inquiries by junior faculty wishing to benefit are welcome. Please contact the Director, Zrinka Stahuljak.
Funding for the workshops is provided by CMRS-CEGS, the Dean of Humanities, and the academic department of the junior faculty member.
