Faculty Author Series Returns

February 1, 2017

 Katherine Steele BrokawSpring semester is ramping up and the UC Merced Library's Faculty Author Series is back in session.

The next installment, happening Feb. 22, features English Professor Katherine Steele Brokaw, with the School of Socials Sciences, Humanities and Arts, who will discuss her book ”Staging Harmony.”

In “Staging Harmony” (Cornell University Press, 2016), Brokaw reveals how the relationship between drama, music and religious change across England during the 16th century moved religious discourse to more moderate positions. By bringing medieval and early Tudor drama into conversation with Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, Brokaw uncovers connections and continuities across diverse dramatic forms and demonstrates the staying power of musical performance traditions.

The event is from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Room 260 of the Leo and Dottie Kolligian Library.
