  6. Micheal Hetherington (Cambridge) opened the first session with ‘C​onformatio animi’: the logic of matter and form in early modern poetics. He explored the processes of information and conformation posited by works of English and continental theory in the sixteenth century, and their implications for the different kinds of matter that receive this form - first, the poets themselves, then the words and ideas which they shape.
