Therese Banks will deliver the first lecture in our Annual Department Lecture Series. Titled "Traces of the Crusade Throughout the Wars of Religion: Pierre de Ronsard's Discours des misères de ce temps (1562) and Agrippa d'Aubigné's Les Tragiques (1616)," the talk will take place in 207 DeBartolo Hall on Friday, October 28, at 4 pm.
Therese Banks is a Ph.D. Candidate in French in the Department of Romance Languages & Literatures at Harvard University. Her research broadly focuses on representations of religious violence in medieval and early modern French literature. Her dissertation, “(Hi)story-telling and Holy War: Narrating the Crusades from Medieval to Early Modern France,” investigates the relationship between the rhetoric of crusade and the formation of “France” as a body politic and as a nation-state.
