This seminar explores how Europeans constructed the identities of non-European and non-Christian peoples in the Atlantic and Mediterranean worlds. We invite papers that examine how Europeans racialized, sexualized, or in any way “othered” either Jews or Muslims in Southern Europe, the indigenous peoples of the Americas, or the peoples of North/West Africa that they encountered in Africa in addition to those encountered as slaves when traveling to the Caribbean and Central America. Renaissance and early modern European views of different peoples was closely connected to, and constructed by, prevailing ideas about gender and sexuality as well as notions of civilization and nature.

I am in the process of compiling an anthology of writing from expatriate Americans. There has already been some interest from a university press, and a number of contributors are already attached to the project. Depending on the type and number of submissions I receive, I may do this as two books: one volume as academic research and the other as creative nonfiction/ memoir.

Here’s a bit of background on the book:

Travel in English Literature (RSA Toronto, March 17-19, 2019)

Renaissance Society of America
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 5, 2018

This is a guaranteed session that considers representations of travel in English Renaissance literature. Given the regular movement of persons and merchandise between England and Continental Europe and the incipient development of English interests in the New World, travel is central to the evolution of an English national identity. At the same time, an idea of travel profoundly subtends humanist models of education, which generally present their material as objects of translatio across time and place. This panel aims to explore how early modern writers conceptualize travel, and how they respond to travel’s capacity to register both physical and imaginative experiences.
