    • Diana Taylor – Reparative Memory: Trauma, Memory, Accountability, and Repair
      • Thursday, October 21 st at 5:30pm
      • What can we do when it seems that nothing can be done and doing nothing is not an option? How do communities hardest hit by COVID-19 transform the traumatic memories of loss into practices of repair? This talk will explore some of the theoretical and practical implications of these questions.

    • Amanda Henrichs – Embroidered Tails: Remediating Mary Wroth
      • Wednesday, October 27 at 5pm
      • Mary Wroth (neé Sidney), a prominent 17th-century women writer, is known to modern scholars as highly allusive, and the same scholars have documented many moments of intertextuality between her work and that of her father, Robert Sidney, and her uncle, Philip Sidney. Further, the whole family was close-knit, and Wroth and her aunt, Lady Mary Pembroke, in particular are known to have had a warm relationship. Yet there have not yet been documented intertextual moments between Wroth and Pembroke. Given everything we know about the Sidney family, this should not be true.
      • Exploring this intertextual gap, this talk asks: can computers identify the marked language that close readers would call allusions? Can computers find additional moments of intertextuality? How does a computational shift in method change our understanding of historical intertext? One can push even further on such questions of method by incorporating feminist and critical making practices, including those in fiber arts. In particular, I suggest that textual remediation calls for participatory criticism, whether remediation happens through complex computational processes or via needle and thread.
