and A Poet

Professor Elaine Treharne, who spoke on “The Future History of the Book” at the Libraries’ annual donor event on October 30, writes about a late sixteenth-century manuscript of George Cavendish’s Life and Death of Cardinal Wolsey in Stanford’s Special Collections. Her essay first appeared in Vivarium, the blog of the Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS). The playwright in the title is none other than William Shakespeare, who within the realm of possibility might have used this very manuscript in the writing of Henry VIII.

SUL partnered with the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department to take part in the Ninth Biennial Feminisms and Rhetorics conference. The 425 attendees came to Stanford to hear papers on global feminist rhetoric and keynote speakers such as Dorothy Allison, Lynda Barry, and Lisa Ede. Part of their time was also spent viewing a selection of Special Collections materials focused on feminism.
