Classification Seminar with Danielle Allor (English) and Preetha Mani (AMESALL)

Wednesday, November 28, 2018 1:10-4:10pm
Academic Building West 6051
15 Seminary Place, New Brunswick, NJ

Danielle Allor is a PhD candidate in English at Rutgers University. She will present work from her dissertation, “Trees of Thought: Arboreal Matter and Metaphor in Late Medieval England,” which examines trees as material and figural classification systems in the work of William Langland, Geoffrey Chaucer, John Lydgate, and John Skelton.

Preetha Mani is Assistant Professor of South Asian Literatures at Rutgers University. Her piece, “Citations of Sympathy, Craftwork of Form: How the Hindi and Tamil Short Story Gained Preeminence, ” asks, what unique truth did the short story offer readers of Hindi and Tamil literature in late colonial India? Operating through emotional insight—rather than novelistic didacticism or poetic ecstasy—this paper shows how the genre unmoored portrayals of the Indian woman from existing gender norms, prompting a shift from social realism to modernism in these two major Indian literary spheres.
