DECOLONIZING THE PAST: RENAISSANCE HUMANISM BEYOND WESTERN EUROPE
This panel calls for a reevaluation of Renaissance humanism, long considered
a hallmark of Western social and intellectual development. Searching the
interstices of Renaissance humanism suggests its complicity with Western
European colonization, not only of physical spaces but also of cultural and
linguistic domains. An example of humanism's continuing colonizations is
the definition of what constitutes the center of Europe and what is
considered its margins. The consequences of this definition include our
perception of a Europe split on an East/West axis, and the fact that what we

Proposed Panel: The Social Work of Same-Sex Alliances
in the Early Modern Period

Alan Bray’s _The Friend_ has sparked a great deal of
discussion about the ways in which same-sex alliances

or cultural formations. For a proposed panel at RSA
2006, in San Francisco, we invite papers that consider
same-sex associations and representations under the

marriage, to patron, to genre, to nation, or to
politics, to name only a few possibilities.

Labor and Early Modern English Literature
The canon of early English literature is full of professional playwrights and
gentlemen who wrote in their spare time. The history of English literature,
however, also includes artisans-writers and performers. Indeed, some of the
earliest English drama was performed (and perhaps written in part by) members
of the various Guilds that made up the laboring class of English society. This
panel will focus on the voices of such writers in their own words or as those
voices are registered in the drama, poetry, and prose of the period.

CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies (RSA, San Francisco, 23-25
March 2006)

For the past five years, the RSA program has featured a number of
sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is
being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. At the
2006 RSA meeting (San Francisco, March 23-25), several sessions will
continue to follow this interest across several key projects, through a
number of thematic touchstones, and in several emerging areas.

For these sessions, we seek proposals in the following general areas,
and beyond:
