Three Angelo State University students, pictured here left to right, Alexandra Hopkins, Cayla Clinkenbeard, and Amanda Fowler, presented at the Sam Houston State International Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Thought on April 4-6, 2013.

Clinkenbeard, a graduate student in the MA program in English presented her paper, titled “The Noblest Roman’s Death: Brutus’s Justification for Suicide,” which argues for a correction of the critical assumption that Brutus should be read as an emblem of Stoic philosophy, favoring instead a more flexible Platonic model; Hopkins, also a graduate student in the MA program, read from her paper, titled “Romeo and Juliet’s Quarto One and Implications of Suicide in III,iii,” a consideration of the textual ambiguity of the two texts of Shakespeare’s classic love tragedy that argues for a recuperation of the “bad quarto” of the play; lastly, Fowler, a senior English major graduating this spring, presented her paper, titled ‘“Soul Exhaled’: Anxiety of the Soul in John Donne’s Valedictions,” part of a larger research project that argues for the further study of the role of the body and soul in Donne’s poetry, specifically as the body appears at once a vital component of spiritual progression and a potential threat to that progress.
