Scholarship Highlight: April 15, 2014

Have you ever wondered how scholars of literature locate questions of humanness in texts? This month, Performing Humanity will feature the work of one such scholar — and we invite you, the readers, to chime in with your thoughts.

What links exist between scholarship and activism?

How do novels depict historical or theoretical moments that blur lines of humanness?

What other pieces of literature or art can help us to continue this consideration?


For those over-achievers who want to read ahead, the editor recommends Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness.

We look forward to sharing more on April 15!
