This conference aims to showcase current scholarly engagement with Renaissance literature, particularly as regards the reconfiguration of lived experience into texts and the assembly of aesthetic clues into readerly experience. The organisers are seeking proposals for 20-minute papers engaging with any topic falling within the thematic and chronological remit suggested by the conference title. Papers may address any textual genre (from life-writing to sermons, from poetry to drama) and draw on various methodologies (such as cultural history and theory, stylistics, empirical aesthetics/neuro-cognitive perspectives).


Please submit a 200-word abstract accompanied by a short bio to patrick.gill@uni-mainz.de by 15 March 2018.
