Launch of the Research Institute for Literature and Cultural History
The Research Institute is looking forward to its launch event at Tate Liverpool on 20th September 2019. It is particularly excited to welcome as its guest, Professor Steven Mentz, whose keynote lecture will be on ‘Acting Human in the Anthropocene: A Shakespearean Immersion’.
Steven Mentz is Professor of English at St. John’s University in New York City. He is both a Shakespearean scholar and and a leading figure in the development of blue (or oceanic) humanities, an exciting new area of research which brings together environmental, historiographical and literary studies.
