We are seeking papers on innocence in the Renaissance. Images and symbols of innocence, such as
animals, flowers and children abound in Renaissance literature. What other images and symbols of
innocence does one encounter? To what purpose is innocence used? Do the images of innocence
support or illustrate an ideology? Do they have a rhetorical purpose? For example, might they
vehicle a nostalgia for a mythical Golden Age? Or perhaps help to imagine a utopian future? Are
the images of innocence ever used to describe contemporary realities? Your paper could explore
these topics, or suggest your own perspective on the subject. Send your abstract of 300 words by

The Terrain of Spectacle and Affect

geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of
individuals." As a way of negotiating the way place affects psyche, psychogeography holds
particular resonance in the contemporary socio-political context. For example, globalization has
widened the geographical environment, while in recent years there has been an increased
