 As Helen Vendler has written, the function of a lyric poem is to offer 'aesthetically convincing representations of feelings felt and thoughts thought.' In ways unavailable to other genres, the Renaissance lyric provides insights into the epistemological shifts and changing patterns of thought in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. This session will explore the way the Renaissance Lyric both reflected and inflected contemporary ways of thinking about issues of politics, nationalism, religion, sovereignty, and subjectivity in Early Modern England. For the Renaissance Literature and Culture panel at the Midwest Modern Language Association Conference in Chicago, November 9-12, 2006.

We welcome submissions for a volume of essays that addresses issues
discussed in the two-part panel sessions called Crossing Borders: Learned
Women and Communities of Letters presented at the Sixteenth-Century Studies
Conference in 2005.

The goals of this volume are to examine ways in which women participated in
communities of letters, to explore how cultural, national, political, and/or
religious "borders" were crossed in such communities, and to consider ways
in which gender influenced the kinds of participation that occurred in such
communities.
