MLA, January 2018, New York: Seeking proposals to a non-guaranteed session about kinship terminology or terms of endearment used for friends and foes.

What do these epithets say about the cultural boundaries between friends and enemies in medieval and renaissance literature? Please send 500 word proposal and CV by 20 March 2017 to Pamela Kirkpatrick (kirkpatp@uark.edu ). Also, please email questions or comments. If proposal is accepted, attendant must be an MLA member by 7 April 2017, per MLA guidelines.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Performing The Early Modern English Woman (1500-1710): Seeing and Being Seen on the Domestic, Civic, and Dramatic Stage.

PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

For Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.

Edited by Lisa Hopkins and Aidan Norrie
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

The editors invite chapters of c. 7000 words for an edited collection called Women on the Edge in Early Modern Europe. We are interested primarily in historical rather than fictional women, but also welcome discussion of the treatment of historical women in early modern writing and drama. Topics might include (but are not limited to) women whose geographical location is in some way marginal; women in liminal positions and situations; women whose marital status was uncertain or ambiguous; women with mental health issues; women waiting to see if they would or might inherit land or titles; divorced women; women whose status shifted throughout their lives; or women who were neither maid, widow, nor wife.
