Early Modern Satire: Themes Re-Evaluations and Practices, University of Gothenburg, 2-4th November 2017

early-modern-satire

This was a three-day conference on Early Modern Satire at the University of Gothenburg. My talk addressed inter-mediality in graphic satire and took as an example a series of prints published in London in the late 1730s. Some of these attacked Walpole’s government, others defended it but all of them used animals.  The paper explored the relationship between animality and nationality in prints with political subjects, showing how these satirical characterizations exploited ideas of character and status that were derived from aesopian fables. See Early Modern Satire for the programme.
