Early Modern Exclusions, 14 Sept. 2010 (Deadline CFP: 14 May)
full name / name of organization:
Centre for Studies in Literature & Centre European and International Studies Research, University of Portsmouth
The Centre for Studies in Literature (CSL) and the Centre European and International Studies Research (CEISR) at the University of Portsmouth are pleased to announce a one-day, multi-disciplinary conference on "Early Modern Exclusions" to be held on September 14, 2010.
This one-day conference develops out of, and responds to, research into the history and representation of the kinship, amity and community during the Early Modern Period that has been accumulating steadily over recent decades. We hope to promote a reassessment of this body of work and to develop new lines of enquiry into the implied exclusions that result from or engender social organisation. The conference also encourages analysis of the representational value of the excluded figure and of acts of exclusion, and investigation into the proliferation of both community-making and marginalisation as signifiers of a broader cultural anxiety about exclusion.
We invite proposals for papers (of 20 minutes duration), or panel sessions, dealing with any aspect of exclusion in the 16th-18th centuries, and would welcome interdisciplinary proposals. Topics for papers or panels might include, but are not limited to:
The deadline for proposals is Friday 14 May, 2010. These should take the form of:
