Todd Butler will lead a masterclass for postgraduate students and early career researchers on the following material.
After the session, we will be joining Todd for dinner at Zizzi’s. All parties who wish to attend should RSVP to Toria Johnson (email@example.com) and attend at their own expense.
Todd Butler is Associate Professor and Chair at the Faculty of English, Washington State University.
His main area of publication and research involves early modern literature, religion, and political theory, but he maintains an active interest in early modern crime and law, and how classical rhetoric in particular can help us understand—if not challenge—processes of judicial decision-making. His publications include Imagination and Politics in Seventeenth Century England (Ashgate, 2008) and ‘Swearing Justice in Henry Goodcole and the Witch of Edmonton‘ (Studies in English Literature 50:1, 2010).
