Early Modern Historicism Event at CUNY Grad Center

Anyone interested early modern literature should head over to the CUNY Grad Center this Friday to hear a trio of brilliant early modernists talk about the current status of “historicism” in early modern literary studies.  I know these are great folks because I was in grad school with all three of them!  Here’s the announcement —
