Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

Please consider applying to the forthcoming National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers on continuity and change in the production, dissemination, and reading of Western European books during the 200 years following the advent of printing with movable type. The seminar will pose the governing question of whether the advent of printing was a necessary precondition for the Protestant Reformation. Participants will consider ways in which elements such as book layout, typography, illustration, and paratext (e.g., prefaces, glosses, and commentaries) shaped the responses of readers.

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort.    E B White

Literature always gives joy, comfort, and solace to everyone who is in search of it. The poems inspire and kindle our thoughts, the novels drive us to have patience and look for new paths, the drama reflects lives in miniature form, the essays make us ponder on the subtle observation of life, autobiographies motivate and lead us to the path of glory….there is no end to describe what literature is and how it shapes our lives. We at times advertently/ inadvertently drink, consume and digest literature. The famous English essayist Francis Bacon aptly puts, “Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.”

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.
