WRITING LIVES IN EUROPE, 1500-1700University College Dublin, 6-8 September 2018 Call for Papers This conference on life writing/self writing will address questions related to life writing across Europe between1500-1700, in particular the influence of different religious, social, cultural and national perspectives on theemergence of various forms of self-writing. We are particularly interested in relationships, connections, textualtraffic and circulation across Europe through networks such as intellectual circles/coteries, religious orders, andthe experience of exiled communities. Life writing has long historical roots, but such writings are arguably thefirst examples of demotic, vernacular writing in the period.

MARGIN reads Messy Bodies
Last year, in our end-of-the-year symposium focusing on the afterlife of Ovid in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, we found ourselves confronting surprisingly queer, surprisingly metamorphosed, messy bodies, bodies that frequently demanded decidedly messy methodological engagements, between disciplinary categories or at their margins. With all this in mind, we continue our group exploration of the body with this year’s symposium.

Of bodies changed to other forms I tell;
You Gods, who have yourselves wrought every change,
Inspire my enterprise and lead my lay
In one continuous song from nature’s first
Remote beginnings to our modern times.
- Ovid, Metamorphoses, Book I
