Plenary Title: "Sovereignty, Crisis, and the Literary Imagination"
Donald Pease, professor of English, The Ted and Helen Geisel Third Century Professor in the Humanities, Chair of the Dartmouth Liberal Studies Program and winner of the 1981 Distinguished Teaching Award at Dartmouth, is an authority on nineteenth and twentieth-century American literature and literary theory.
He is the author of Visionary Compacts: American Renaissance Writings in Cultural Context (which won the Mark Ingraham Prize for the best new book in the Humanities in 1987), The New American Exceptionalism (2009), and Theodor Seuss Geisel (2010).
Dr. Eliane Glaser is a writer, radio producer, and an honorary research fellow at Birkbeck, University of London. She is particularly interested in ideology, politics, cultural theory, British tolerance, and religious identities. Her most recent book, Get Real: How to Tell it Like it is in a World of Illusions (March 2012) addresses the delusions we live under – from "revolutionary" plus-size models to "world-saving" organic vegetables; from heavily scripted and edited "reality" TV to "life-changing" iPhone apps. Dr Glaser has also published Judaism without Jews: Philosemitism and Christian Polemic in Early Modern England (2007), and she is currently editing a collection of essays, provisionally entitled Religious Tolerance in Early Modern England: Historical and Contemporary Reflections (2013).
