We are currently accepting submissions for the Renaissance (Excluding Drama) Panel of the South Central Modern Language Association conference, October 29th through the 31st in Baton Rouge, LA.

We welcome papers that explore "Renaissance Sexualities" in early modern nondramatic literature. We invite contributors to consider images of gender, sex, and the body that relate to competing (or complementary) ideas of the sacred and the profane in the period's literature.

Please send abstracts of 200-250 words to by Friday, March 27th for full consideration.
