Door Bolts, Thresholds, and Peep-Holes: Liminality and Domestic Spaces in Early Modern England An Edited Volume

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Domestic spaces lay at the centre of the lives of early modern English men and women.  Yet their liminality has often been under-investigated, if not underestimated, by scholars.  On the one hand, households served as a hubbub of familial and filial activity (housewarmings, births, conventicles, fast/feast days and reading groups), on the other hand as sites of the foreign and fatal (burglaries, squatting, murders, possessions, and devastating fires).  The house was as permeable as it was penetrable.  This despite attempts to ward off or perturb would be intruders: via witches’ marks, locks, bars, fences, guard dogs, community patrols and the ‘watch’.

Shakespeare’s Migrants and Exiles – Shakespeare Across Borders

updated: 
Wednesday, October 4, 2017 - 12:46pm
Shakespeare Seminar 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

In Shakespeare’s works characters are frequently banished from court, from the city or their country. Some move voluntary and many make their first appearance with a history of migration. Some yearn for their home, some are glad to escape persecution. Some bemoan the loss of their identity, some embrace a new identity abroad. People are exiled for various reasons, banished from another’s present, from a place, or from memory. Exile may mean a new chance or certain death. Migrants are greeted with hope, with fear, with fierce rejection. In a more abstract sense, Shakespeare’s plays and poems themselves became migrant texts as they were performed by travelling players or otherwise transmitted across time and space.

Anemoi: Undergraduate Journal of Premodern Studies

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 8:38am
Anemoi, New College of Florida Journal of Premodern Studies

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Anemoi is a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal of pre-modern studies being published by students at New College of Florida in Sarasota. We are looking for submissions and team members. We aim to provide a voice and CV opportunities to undergraduates.

Submissions must handle a 'pre-modern' topic, which may range broadly from classics to early modern studies, and should be directed towards an audience not necessarily bringing with them a background in the field. Papers should explain particular terminology and essential background. We encourage papers under a range of interdisciplinary topics within these fields, including but not limited to music, history, theology, literature, drama, philosophy, art, language, and economics.

New Directions for Rhetorical Studies in Early Modern Literature

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 1:02pm
Mark Kaethler and Anton Bergstrom / Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

Rhetoric and literature obviously have an intricate shared history in early modern studies evidenced by the likes of George Puttenham’s Art of English Poesie (1579) among other manuals and treatises, but studies continue to demonstrate that there is more to be examined at this scholarly intersection. By applying research in cognitive studies, for instance, Raphael Lyne offers a new perspective on Shakespeare’s use of rhetoric, and in a forthcoming piece Michael Ullyot and Adam Bradley employ digital technologies in order to study the applications of rhetorical tropes like gradatio in early modern drama more broadly. This panel seeks to discuss what other innovations or findings are possible with or without novel applications.

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.
