“Drama, Demons, and Knowledge” with Katherine Walker

Join us for “Drama, Demons, and Knowledge," a talk by Katherine Walker, Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of English, Mount Holyoke College. 

Walker researches early modern drama, science, and magic. Her current book, Instinct, Science, and Knowledge on the Early Modern Stage, looks at how the concept of instinctive knowledge informed Renaissance understandings of making knowledge through the body. Walker is particularly interested in how marginalized figures adopt or advance methods of reading the environment on the stage. Walker's work appears in the journals Prose Studies, Comitatus, Early Modern Literary Studies, Studies in Philology, Preternature: Critical and Historical Studies on the Preternatural, and is forthcoming in English Literary History.
