Louis Althusser’s thought is receiving renewed attention in the humanities and social sciences. This session seeks to bring together scholars of various disciplines and specializations to explore the potential of a return to Althusser in the particular context of Renaissance/early modern studies. Contributions may reflect on Althusser’s writings on early modern figures, make use of Althusserian concepts to produce new readings of early modern texts, or engage relevant theoretical questions.

MMLA 2020 (Milwaukee, WI, Nov. 5-8)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

In keeping with this year’s MMLA conference theme of “Cultures of Collectivity”, this panel solicits propositions that reflect on the many ways in which the individual and the collective were conceived in pre-revolutionary society. Rather than viewing the individual and the collective as being separate facets of social existence, papers that look at the liminal movement between subjective experience and the larger political body will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

The Wooden O Symposium invites panel and paper proposals on any topics related to the text and performance of Shakespeare’s plays.

Topics could range from the art and power of story-telling, legends and tales, or the drive to adapt stories. Papers may also cover the topics of playmaking in times of war, plague, and other hardships, digital or virtual playmaking, and the importance of theatre during these times. We welcome unique interpretations of these themes.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

We have been closely monitoring the situation in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact upon the ‘Adaptation in the Humanities’ conference in early October 2020.

Based on current Australian Government advice, we have decided to postpone the conference until 2021.

We are mindful of uncertainty prompted by the outbreak and cannot predict what impact it will have in the coming weeks and months.

Our primary concern is the health and safety of all involved in the conference, and we are aware of the need to ensure the conference is as safe an environment as possible for all.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

On April 30th, 2020, protesters flocked into Lansing, MI, to contest stay-at-home orders that slowed the spread of Covid-19. A number of the crowd carried assault rifles, Confederate flags, swastikas and nooses. Such displays of racism and violence prompt a questioning of the “right to protest” and “allowed” voice, especially when such displays harm people.

Essays can deal with any of the Nordic countries and focus on translation, performance and/or aspects of influence on particular Nordic authors.

Relgion and the Marketplace
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

We are seeking one or two chapters to fill out our edited collection Religion and the Medieval and Early Modern Global Marketplace (already under contract with Routledge). Ideally the chapter(s) would provide a case study that addresses some intersection of economy (market, exchange) and religion (faith, sprituality) in medieval and/or early modern Africa. How did matters of faith enter the marketplace in a specific region of Africa? How did religion facilitate or provide resistance to the growing slave trade? How did religions adapt to changing markets?

Renaissance Drama: The Politics of Protest

Thursday, April 30, 2020

Political protest has long been central to literary and cinematic histories from ideological and artistic manifestos to political pamphlets to satirical novels and realist cinema. They remain powerful vehicles for stimulating public debate, issuing calls to action, speaking truth to power, and heightening awareness of social ills.  Despite censorship, marketplace economics, and national politics, literature, film, and numerous other modes of cultural / aesthetic production continue to play an important role not only as agents of social critique but also as agents of social change.
