Institute of Medieval & Early Modern Studies: Bob Mills (UCL) 'The 'Anthropological Machine' in Medieval Art: Cows, Martyrs & Other Animals'

17th May 2017, 17:00, A56, Elvet Riverside I, Durham University

Please see attached for details of a talk by Bob Mills (UCL) to be given 17 May, 5pm. The talk is entitled: "The 'Anthropological Machine' in Medieval Art: Cows, Martyrs & Other Animals". Bob is one of the most innovative scholars working on medieval visual culture, and his talk should have wide appeal to members of the School - he will in particular be engaging with the ideas of Giorgio Agamben about animality.

Just to let you know that the French Seminar Series workshop led by Bob Mills (UCL) involves a pre-circulated paper. Bob is one of the most interesting scholars working on medieval visual culture, and as you can see from the description below, the paper engages with animal studies and Agamben, so should be of wide interest to members of the School.
