Craig Dionne (Eastern Michigan University) will present a workshop for graduate students.

For this workshop, Dionne would like to frame Renaissance rhetorical theory in broader history of evolutionary psychology and ethology. More specifically, in terms of reading early modern English literature, how does Renaissance humanism’s rote literacies--the notebook method, the use of double-translation, the range of practices associated with this institutionalized learning theater—figure in this story of human cognition and adaptation? That is, how might we
read Tudor humanism in the context of co-evolved cognition? How might these training exercises form a kind of selection pressure that taps into the distinguishing feature of the homo adapted brain, the way we can memorize habituated routines within an unseen storehouse that allows for the brain to work offline?
