Sustainable Conversations on 16th c. Lit and Culture / SAMLA 86, Nov. 7-9, 2014, Atlanta / Abstracts Due June 6th
What aspects of sixteenth-century literature and culture continue to fascinate to this day?
Over the last roughly 500 years, Renaissance poets, playwrights, philosophers, and myriad other figures have continued to provide fertile ground for sustained conversation and debate within academia and beyond. For the study of the Renaissance to remain relevant, scholars must decide which conversations are worth sustaining. "Sustainable conversations" are those that invite debate, that challenge existing paradigms, that adapt to the shifting landscape of contemporary scholarship and culture at large.
This SAMLA 86 panel welcomes papers about any aspect of Renaissance / Early Modern Literature and Culture, circa 1450-1642.
By June 6th, please submit a 300 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V requirements to Donna Wroble, Georgia State University, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
