Proposed Panel: The Social Work of Same-Sex Alliances
in the Early Modern Period
Alan Brayâ€™s _The Friend_ has sparked a great deal of
discussion about the ways in which same-sex alliances
fit within, and signify to, larger social, political,
or cultural formations. For a proposed panel at RSA
2006, in San Francisco, we invite papers that consider
same-sex associations and representations under the
shelter of, or in tension with, other allegiances: to
marriage, to patron, to genre, to nation, or to
politics, to name only a few possibilities.

Labor and Early Modern English Literature
The canon of early English literature is full of professional playwrights and
gentlemen who wrote in their spare time. The history of English literature,
however, also includes artisans-writers and performers. Indeed, some of the
earliest English drama was performed (and perhaps written in part by) members
of the various Guilds that made up the laboring class of English society. This
panel will focus on the voices of such writers in their own words or as those
voices are registered in the drama, poetry, and prose of the period.
Up to five complete essays are currently sought by the editor of *Macbeth: New
Critical Essays,* an essay collection that is now under contract as a
forthcoming installment in Routledge's widely distributed Shakespeare Criticism
Series. Only previously unpublished essays are eligible for inclusion.
(However, essays that are included will be available for later republication.)
CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies (RSA, San Francisco, 23-25
For the past five years, the RSA program has featured a number of
sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is

continue to follow this interest across several key projects, through a
number of thematic touchstones, and in several emerging areas.

Representing Reading in Early Modern England
Proposals are invited for a panel at RSA 2006 in San Francisco (23-25 March)
exploring the representation of reading and readers in Early Modern England.
Although there has been an increasing amount of work dedicated to material
reading practices, little attempt has been made to understand the complex and,
at times, even contradictory ways in which these practices were being
reproduced in the written and visual arts. How did reading signify in Early
