CFP: [Bibliography] (Collection) Resurrecting the "First Five Hundred": The Church Fathers in Early Modern England

updated: 
Saturday, June 14, 2008 - 9:31pm
Mitchell M. Harris

In his "Challenge Sermon" delivered at St. Paul’s Cross on November 26, 1559, Bishop John Jewel
argued that the Church Fathers were the true architects of the Christian religion and that the
English people would no longer be subjected to the sort of medieval tampering that had led the
one true Church astray. "The first five hundred years of the church," he would argue, "are worth
more than the whole thousand that followed afterward." For this collection, we are seeking
essays that address the topic of the Church Fathers in early modern English culture. Topics
addressed may include (but will not be limited to) the rhetorical, political, ethical, and material

The University of Florida's graduate student group, the Digital Assembly

incorporating research and original works from various fields including English, Art and Art
History, and Visual Anthropology to name a few. We are particularly interested in discursive
practices and the role and implication of media conventions in the above fields especially given
the rising importance of materiality in criticism and analysis.

Sunday, March 9, 2008 - 5:18am
Anne E. B. Coldiron

This interdisciplinary session planned for Renaissance Society of America
2009 invites papers that link visual and verbal elements in specific
texts to broader concerns in 16th-century print culture. In 16th-century
literary texts in England and on the continent, how do visual and verbal
elements work together in the new medium to create new aesthetics and
modes of meaning? How do printers, artists, authors, and translators
collaborate to deploy the new technology in visual and verbal forms? How
does a new means of production reshape the interaction of the visual and
verbal? We welcome other such questions and the treatment of specific
subjects (e.g. the use of woodcuts, engravings, printers’ devices,

CFP: [Bibliography] MLA 2008 Special Session: Transatlantic Sensations

updated: 
Tuesday, February 12, 2008 - 4:44pm
John Cyril Barton

In recent years, nineteenth-century sensationalism has attracted much
attention among scholars of both American and British literature and
culture. Sensation literature, however, has yet to be examined in a
transatlantic context, despite the fact that the genre emerged within a
transnational publication system that shaped its development from the
early 1800s to the end of the century. This proposed MLA special session
seeks not only to map the development of the “sensation novel”â€"the
nineteenth century’s best-selling genre on both sides of the Atlanticâ€"but
also to account for the emergence of a new kind of writing that informed
