The Queen’s Two Bodies: Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I from Schiller to Jelinek
This Seminar takes its departure from E. Kantorowicz’s thesis of the “King’s Two Bodies” (1957), which recent research has questioned with regard to queens. In Schiller’s famous historical drama Maria Stuart (1801) the two bodies are distributed onto two queens, Mary Stuart (“body natural”) and Elizabeth I (“body politic”). Is this always the case in literary and cinematic renderings of the Mary Stuart / Elizabeth I complex? Seminar participants will have the unique opportunity to explore this research question by dealing with dramatic, narrative, and cinematic renderings by authors such as Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, Stefan Zweig or Elfriede Jelinek. The seminar will take place in the “Festsaal” of the historic Goethe National Museum, from June 17-22, 2018.
This seminar is funded by “Klassik-Stiftung Weimar” and open to graduate students enrolled in the Faculty of Arts at UBC.
Graduate students from other Canadian institutions may be eligible under the Western Dean’s Agreement.
Advanced reading knowledge of German is required.
