Hyatt Regency - Grand Suite 5

Session Information

Description: McColley, Walker, and Lewalski were pioneers who brought important and neglected questions of gender to Milton studies. Panelists assess the legacy of these scholars and the impact of their contributions and consider the generational change in Milton studies toward approaches that build on their foundations: ecocriticism, queer theory, and reception study.
