CALL FOR PAPERS
49th ANNUAL PACIFIC NORTHWEST RENAISSANCE SOCIETY CONFERENCE
IN CONJUNCTION WITH
THE RENAISSANCE SOCIETY OF AMERICA
March 23-25, 2006
San Francisco, California

This year's Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference (http://www.pnrs.org)
will be held as part of the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of
America (http://www.rsa.org).

PNRS Plenary Speaker: Edward Pechter, University of Victoria / Concordia
University author of numerous books and articles including ""Othello" and
Interpretive Traditions" and editor of W.W. Norton & Company's ""Othello:" A
Critical Edition."
As a multi-disciplinary body, the PNRS invites papers on the fine arts, the
humanities, and the social sciences. Proposals, including a short bio and an
abstract of 300-500 words, are to be submitted (preferably by e-mail, NOT as
an attachment) to the address below, no later than December 1st, 2005. Each
abstract must include the title of the paper, the author's name and complete
mailing address (including e-mail), any need for audio-visual equipment, and
must make clear the paper's thesis, methodology and conclusion.

Completed papers are limited to twenty minutes presentation time, including
slides, films, or other audio-visual support. To facilitate discussion,
session chairs will hold papers strictly to this limit. All papers are to be
essentially new and never before presented in public. In keeping with PNRS
tradition, the conference committee prefers to structure all panels. In the
case where a panel is proposed, the submission should include abstracts and
short bios for all presenters.

Send inquiries and proposals to the program chair:
