We encourage scholars of all disciplines to submit papers related to the period inclusive of the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries, and we especially welcome papers with an interdisciplinary methodology.

Possible topics for papers include, but are not limited to:

 

Emotional lives

Lies of the body

'Literature and the City' is a conference organized and sponsored by the
English Student Association at CUNY Graduate Center. This conference
seeks to bring together graduate students from a wide variety of
political, critical, and aesthetic perspectives to explore how cities
function in literature as both subject and setting. We invite papers
that examine the multitudinous ways in which cities have captured the
literary imagination and that scrutinize the complex relationships
between language, art, and metropolis.

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
