Old Language(s), New Technologies: Corpus Linguistics and European Languages in the Renaissance, 1400s-1600s

The Renaissance is universally acknowledged to be a crucial moment in Europe for the development of vernacular national languages which begin to establish their prestige alongside Latin. Historical linguists have focused on the many interesting peculiarities of the European vernaculars in this period, such as the high degree of spelling fluctuation, (non-)lexicalisation of words, phonological and morphological adjustments, semantic shifts, etc. When it comes to diachronic approaches to corpus linguistics, however, scholars are sometimes sceptic about the possibilities offered by machine-readable samples of both literary and non-literary texts belonging to the Renaissance.

17th International Connotations Symposium: “And this gives life to thee” - Textual Reasons for Canonicity

updated: 
Monday, October 24, 2022 - 1:11am
Connotations: Society for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Recent debates on canonicity have focused on how canons are a product of social and historical conditions as well as of reception. Texts become canonical when they are felt to embody the spirit of an age or to voice concerns considered universal at a particular moment. But what about the texts themselves? Can any text become canonical in any way? Or are there any specific textual reasons for such an elevated status? This latter question is what our symposium wishes to address.

In Nicomachean Ethics and Politics, Aristotle conceived ethics and politics to be both interrelated and exclusively male endeavors. This notion continued to be influential in the early modern period (c. 1500 – 1800). Yet in recent decades, feminist scholarship has showed that throughout the early modern world numerous women nonetheless discussed, developed, and challenged politics and ethics in profound and often surprising ways.

Mixed Race Shakespeares

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Pursuing new directions in the subject of Shakespeare and race and addressing some of the gaps in current conversations about representation, casting, performance, diversity and inclusion, Mixed Race Shakespeares explores the ways in which Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) might offer alternative readings of the plays and complicate certain trajectories and terminologies. More specifically, this collection aims to challenge hypodescent and monoracial norms, destabilize official racial categories/designations and advance the study of topics such as racial mixing, racial passing, interraciality, biracialism, multiracialism, transracialism and ethnoracialism.

Jean-Louis Claret "Rubriques" Aix-Marseille University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The new journal Rubriques is preparing a special issue dedicated to Shakespearean drama.  It proposes to shed light on the various zones where the theatrical text and its illustrations dovetail or face each other from a safe distance. It will discuss the capacity of images to show what the text says or keeps unsaid and analyze the many ways in which images can appropriate and digest theatrical space. Among the contributions to this volume, we expect some to compare the different visual representations of the same scene or to analyse synthetically the productions of one theatrical tradition or of specific trends (for ex, Pre-Raphaelism) or to shed light on the treatment of one specific genre (comedies, tragedies, history plays, romances).

On the website of The Folger Shakespeare Library readers are invited to “learn more about Shakespeare’s language, life, and the world he knew,” suggesting that we might be able to unlock, or at least better understand, Shakespeare’s works by studying what he and his contemporaries not only read but also saw or heard.

The Many Fortunes of the Courtier: The Resilience of Castiglione’s Cortegiano

NEMLA 2023a
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Learning of Castiglione’s death in 1529, Charles V declared “one of the finest gentlemen in the world has just died.”
The Spanish emperor’s praise is evidence of the depth and scope of the influence of Il Cortegiano during the
sixteenth century, appearing in Spanish translation by Juan Boscán in 1534 and in an Elizabethan translation by
Thomas Hoby in 1561. Yet Castiglione’s Courtier—read at times as a book of manners, and other times as
representative of Renaissance ideals—continued to influence writers, poets, and literary critics well into the
seventeenth century and for long after. Whether interested in sprezzatura, the art of conversation, the persistence of
