Subject: Early Modern Culture: Debate on Materialism in Literary Theory
The new issue of Early Modern Culture (<http://emc.eserver.org>) contains a lively discussion of an article by David Hawkes entitled “Against Materialism in Literary Theory.” (This article appeared last year in a collection entitled The Return of Theory in Early Modern English Studies, eds. Paul Cefalu and Bryan Reynolds, as is reprinted in EMC with permission of the publishers.) Participants include Michael Booth, Adam Bryx & Bryan Reynolds, William Flesch, Christopher Kendrick, and John Sutton & Evelyn B. Tribble. There is also a response by Hawkes and there are counter-responses by several of the participants.
Early Modern Culture is edited by Crystal Bartolovich and David Siar and is published by the English Server at Iowa State University.
