The deadline for interdisciplinary workshop proposals for "Attending to Early Modern Women--and Men" has been extended to October 6, 2005. We hope you are drafting a proposal!

While the keynote address and plenary speakers will concentrate on what
scholars of early modern women can learn from considering men and
masculinity, workshops may consider masculinity or CONTINUE PAST CONVERSATIONS ABOUT WOMEN AND GENDER. Workshops should, however, focus
on one of the plenary topics themselves: theorizing gender, childhood,
violence, and pedagogies.

Proposals should be postmarked OCTOBER 6, 2005. The conference convenes in College Park, MD, November 9-11, 2006.

Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one
another.

This year, I am accepting paper proposals for several panels on early modern literature to be delivered at the Thirty-Seventh Annual CEA Conference on Reading the Regions / Writing the Regions / Teaching the Regions to be held from 6-8 April 2006.
 
Papers are especially welcome that deal with ways in which early modern writers dismantled, elaborated, heightened, or constructed ideas of regional identity. Topics that are particularly welcome might address:
intersections between gendered self-fashioning and regional identity
imagined regions (utopias, fantasies, romances)
liminal regions
ecocritical perspectives on place and region
geography and identity
domestic "regions"

A session to be held at "Space, Haunting, Discourse," an interdisciplinary conference sponsored by the
Department of English at Karlstad University, Sweden, June 15-18, 2006.

Session Description:

Shakespeare's plays have been a near constant reference for definitions of modernity. They are also crucial to
conceptions of haunting. How can we articulate these two strands?

performance: performance-related woodcuts or drawings; stillness and
stasis in theatrical performance or film ("frozen" moments;
tableaux); the photographic still in theatre or film.

Proposed Panel: Renaissance Girls
Renaissance Society of America Conference
San Francisco, March 23-26, 2006

We are looking for one paper that addresses the topic of Renaissance
girls for a proposed panel at the 2006 Renaissance Society of America
Conference. Proposals are welcome from all disciplines and need not be
limited to England.

The panel aims to bring together the emerging field of Girls Studies with
the burgeoning scholary interest in Renaissance childhood. What was the
place of female children in Renaissance culture and society? How were
they represented in literature, drama, and art? And how did girlhood
compare to boyhood?

Call for Paper Proposals for Proposed Panel "Gender, Sexuality and Time in
Renaissance England" at the Renaissance Society of America's 2006 meeting in
San Francisco
Recently, feminist and queer theorists have attempted to reconsider the
politics of time. Most of these critical interventions, however, have been based
in 19th and 20th-century understandings of time. This panel will consider
intersections of gender, sexuality and time in 16th and 17th-century England
in an effort to add an early modern perspective to some of these discussions.
Papers on particular texts, authors and genres, as well as broader
explorations of temporal and historical thinking and practices are all welcome.

For the Renaissance Society of America Conference in San Francisco (March 23-25, 2006).

This panel seeks to re-examine literary representations of revenge in early
modern culture. Papers are welcomed from across genres, countries, languages,
and disciplinary/theoretical approaches.

Much scholarly attention has been given to the mimetic function of revenge and
the authorizing narratives used to justify (or proscribe) vengeance.
Reevaluation of these issues is certainly welcomed. However, this panel seeks
to open the field of inquiry even further.

Topics for consideration may include, for example, the following:
