The Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (University of Kent) and
the Centre for Editing Lives and Letters (QMUL) are pleased to co-sponsor a
3-day conference to be held at the University of Kent on 17-19th September
2008. We invite speakers from across the disciplines to consider early
modern agency and the transfer of knowledge between states, agents,
travellers and spies in the period 1500-1700. Whilst recent scholarship in
this area has focussed on early modern interactions and questions of
policy, polity and politics, the negotiations and encounters of
intelligencers, diplomats and spies remain relatively unexplored.
Considering the relationship between agents and information we seek to

Where the Streets Are Re-named…(dis)junctions 2008
Abstract deadline: 2/15/08

In recent years, critical theory has worked hard to challenge the
cartography of scholarly inquiry. As a result, distinguishable borders
between previously exclusive disciplines, critical approaches,
and “schools of thought” have been increasingly punctured, washed out,
and otherwise blurred. We can no longer read or write from a “sedentary
point of view,” but must instead negotiate an ever-shifting landscape
that requires new maps.
