CFP: [18th] "Alan Bray's Friendship" (ASECS, 3/26-29 2009)
The Gay and Lesbian Caucus invites 5-10 minute roundtable discussion topics on the work of Alan
Bray for the 2009 ASECS conference (March 26-29). His two main works, Homosexuality in
Renaissance England (1982/1995) and The Friend (2003), span twenty years of academic
achievement in the study of homosexuality, family, and friendship. We are looking for ideas and
thoughts on the development of his theses or more specifically on his self-proclaimed "puzzling"
notions of homosocial and public friendship as they concern eighteenth-century scholarship.
Please send your proposals to both chairs: Michael Taylor -mttaylor_at_ucalgary.ca- and Kristi
