The Milton Society of America has been granted Associate Organization status with the Renaissance Society of America. This means that the MSA may henceforth submit up to five panels at the annual meeting of the RSA, beginning with the 2015 meeting in Berlin. We will also hold a seat on the RSA Council, allowing us to participate in its deliberations.

Thus we are writing to call for panels and papers seeking inclusion in the program of the 61st annual meeting of the RSA, to be held in Berlin on 26-28 March 2015 (more information on the Berlin conference is available on the RSA website). Proposals covering any aspect of Milton studies will be given full consideration, but especially desirable are those falling under the following themes:

-Cultural exchange, including but not limited to the Continent
-Periodization (Renaissance, Early Modern, Long Restoration)
-Poetics of materialism

Panels must be organized by a current member of the Milton Society of America. Required are a 1-2 page description of the panel and a 1-2 page abstract for each of its papers. The panel organizer and each presenter must also submit curricula vitae of two pages. Please send all materials by May 31 to Ken Hiltner (

Papers may be submitted by anyone. Please submit an abstract of 1-2 pages and a curriculum vitae of two pages by May 31 to Ken Hiltner (

Please be advised that all participants in the Berlin conference must be members of the Renaissance Society of America.
