'I take thee at thy word': Trust in Renaissance Literature

What qualities compose trust and confidence in the Renaissance? What signs call it into question? This seminar seeks to identify points of congruence and contention in sixteenth and seventeenth century notions of trust and how they might be betrayed. From the stage Machiavel who discloses his plans to the audience to the kinsman who pledges his fealty, or the lover who exchanges his faithful vow, how did trust differ across such different domains as religious and political life or familial relations? It is hoped that papers will cross a range of genres including early modern poetry, prose, and drama, as well as major and minor authors. The intended outcome will be to publish suitable papers in a special issue of Textual Practice.

Early Modern Censorship and Libel

updated: 
Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 1:52am
full name / name of organization: 
UCR (dis)junctions

The relationship between censorship and slander, libel, obscenity and copyright - particularly as these legal doctrines existed in the early modern period, along with the institutions that enforce them - is a concept that has received critical attention in the academy; however little attention has been paid to how these relationships have evolved from the early modern to the post-modern period. The central question of this project is how these methods of censorship have changed and how those changes can be defined and explained. This paper will consist of an examination of the interaction of libel, slander and obscenity as forms of censorship in the 16th, 17th and 18th century in relationship to the Stationers' Guild and its licensing schemes.

BEYOND AUTHORSHIP
24-27 June 2014
University of Newcastle Australia

This symposium seeks to move beyond authorship as the primary focus of corpus-based studies in early modern literature, to consider broader questions of language and style, genre and form, influence and adaptation; to interrogate the new literary histories enabled by electronic text corpora, and the new methods of analysis they make possible.

Confirmed speakers include Douglas Bruster, Gabriel Egan, Jonathan Hope, MacDonald P. Jackson, Lynne Magnusson, and Michael Witmore.

New Directions Graduate Student Conference
"[Dis]Embodied Disciplines: Blurring Boundaries in the Academy"
Conference Dates: April 11-12, 2014, The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
Deadline for Abstract Submission: January 20, 2014

The body is a site where regimes of discourse and power inscribe themselves, a nodal point or nexus for relations of juridical and productive power. And, yet, to speak in this way invariably suggests that there is a body that is in some sense there, pregiven, existentially available to become the site of its own ostensible construction.
– Judith Butler

INVESTIGATING INEQUALITIES: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY ACADEMIC CONFERENCE

updated: 
Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - 12:38pm
full name / name of organization: 
Fordham University Graduate Student Association
contact email: 

Inequality has marked human existence and its effects have been felt worldwide. Academics and public intellectuals have pursued the causes and effects of inequalities through academia and the public sphere. The concepts and realities of inequality have been much examined through the lenses of literature, philosophy, theology, sociology, political science, economics, and psychology. From the ancient to modern analyses of the subject, the interpretation of equality and inequality has evolved, but inequality has always been a central theme of academic discourse. This conference will explore inequality as it impels us forward in our pursuit of an end that may ultimately be unattainable.
