Surprise! Today has been an exciting day, mostly because of some great news I received: I will be presenting at University of California, Irvine’s Center for Early Cultures 2020 Graduate Student Conference, “Historical Corporealities” on January 30. I’ll be talking about autofiction in Margaret Cavendish’s The Blazing World and biofiction in Danielle Dutton’s Margaret the First. Although that’s an honor in and of itself, I am even more excited for the keynote speaker: Valerie Traub. She’s one of the foremost scholars in queer theory and queer historicism, and I cannot wait to hear her speak.
