*Call for Abstracts & Articles: APPOSITIONS: Studies in Renaissance /
Early Modern Literature and Culture, http://appositions.blogspot.com/,
seeks new work addressing the theme of dialogues & exchanges
(writers/readers/texts/fields). How and why do literary texts emerge and
change within and against fields of cultural production? Or, alternately:
how and why do social forces or technologies shape distinctive modes and
forms of literary art? Or, antithetically: how and why do literary works
celebrate or challenge cultural narratives? Beyond such chiastic
formulations, what other factors (e.g. audience, gender, identity,
occasion, politics) also contribute to the dialogues & exchanges that
literary texts invite and receive? Comparative, interdisciplinary, and
trans-historical approaches are encouraged. APPOSITIONS is an electronic,
peer-reviewed, international, annual conference and consequent digital
journal for studies in Renaissance/early modern literature and culture.
APPOSITIONS is an open-access, independently managed conference and
journal. ISSN forthcoming.
