Now inviting paper abstracts for a proposed panel on Relics in Early Modern England (or Early Modern Europe) for the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference in New Orleans, October 16-19, 2014. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) reliquaries as art objects, forms of relic devotion, anti-relic polemic, relics in drama or literature. Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio (or cv) to Holly Pickett, email@example.com by March 17, 2014. We can then collaborate on a panel proposal due to SCSC by April 1, 2014.
Through a geocritical focus, the goal of this panel is to explore the significance of spatial identity. Building on the "Familiar Spirits" theme of the conference, this panel will focus on the spirit and identity of an area and its people. Topics can vary from an ecocritical approach to a tribal community's relationship with the spirit of land, to the spatial identity of post 9/11 urban landscapes, or anywhere in between.
Please submit all proposals through the conference website: www.pamla.org
If you have any questions, please to not hesitate to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
