Crossing the Line Between Public and Private in Early Modern England. I am inviting papers for a panel on issues of privacy in Early Modern England for the Cultural Studies Conference at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS March 9-11, 2006. The topic is broad and may include (but is not limited to) issues such as: the private/public nature of coterie literature, government surveillance and the limits of personal privacy, public performances of private concerns, the inversion of private and public in royal spectacle, and private writing in a public setting. E-mail a 200-word abstract and a brief bio by October 24 to Kimball Smith, Department of English, Kansas State University at dksmith_at_ksu.edu
