On Thursday April 24 Kathleen Biddick will be coming to GW as part of our Medieval and Early Modern Studies Seminar. She will be speaking on “THE POLITICAL THEOLOGY OF THE ARCHIVE: REFLECTIONS ON A PROJECT.” All are welcome.
A professor of history at Temple University, Kathleen Biddick is the pathbreaking author of The Shock of Medievalism and The Typological Imaginary: Circumcision, History, Technology as well as numerous essays and articles. Her work matches a sophisticated use of theory to a probing analysis of the postcolonial Middle Ages.
Her talk will take place at 4 PM in Rome 771.
