I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 1, 2022

English Literary Renaissance invites article submissions of 8000 to 12000 words on race in non-dramatic Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century literature in English. We especially encourage submissions that forgo analysis of canonical work by Shakespeare and Spenser, and instead showcase other literary texts and authors of the period, along with new archival materials. While we have plans for a special issue that focuses on Sixteenth-Century literature to be published in 2024, we hope to add more than a single issue’s worth of material to our publication pipeline. We welcome a range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The deadline for authors who wish to be considered for the 2024 special issue is 1 August 2022.

Early modern writings frequently resist neat or easy generic categorisation. Subject to interpretation, pastiche and modification, generic categories offer flexible guidelines rather than a strict set of rules. This one-day conference aims to look at generic experimentation, hybridity and innovation in early modern writing as a way to better understand the period’s multiple and evolving conceptions of genre.

The College English Association’s 52nd national conference, from March 31-April 2, 2022, will focus on the theme of justice, and will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, where the freedom ensured by civil rights has been contested by the government in both the past and present. Birmingham’s notoriety as a focal point of the Civil Rights Movement, including the Birmingham Campaign, the imprisonment of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the writing of his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” is matched by the city’s renown for forging steel, founding Veteran’s Day, and hosting the USA’s second-oldest drag queen pageant.

Creative Authorship(s): Looking for Partners in Devising a Collaborative Funding Application

Ben Jonson frequently referred to his literary works as his ‘mind children’ in the paratext accompanying his printed plays, and he movingly reversed the analogy in his commemorative poem “On My First Sonne”: rendering tribute to the deceased child by styling him his father’s “best piece of poetry”. Jonson is associated with a bold renegotiation of authorship in the early modern period, but he was far from alone in turning to procreational metaphors in descriptions of his literary practice. Metaphors of this kind were useful to writers in suggesting a close relationship between author and text and to grapple with the notion of creative innovation vis-à-vis tradition.

NeMLA Panel: Resonating Voices from the French Early Modern Period

When reading a text, the reader is often confronted with the issue of voice. Who is speaking? Is it an affirmed voice or, on the contrary, a discreet voice? Is it a single or a collective voice? Voice is polymorphous and can take several aspects in the text: speech, shout, whispering, song. The reader must constantly keep in mind these interactions between voice, writing, and silence. In the Early Modern Period, voice can took many forms; In Montaigne’s Essais, we find occurrences of the term “voice” to designate both “word” and “speaking.” In La Rhétorique Française, Fouquelin refers to voice to talk about pronunciation.
