CALL FOR PAPERS
*** DEADLINE EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 5, 2016 ***
Following the theme of this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, this panel seeks to explore what the forthcoming years of scholarship might hold for early modern studies. The two papers in this panel examine topics of renewed interest that promise to have a renaissance of their own in future years. Grace Ioppolo’s forthcoming collected works of Thomas Heywood promises to usher in a renewed interest in the playwright, and the Map of Early Modern London project’s goal to produce the first complete anthology of the mayoral shows will make these texts accessible to scholars and students in an open access digital format.

Dr. Frida Beckman, Stockholm University Dr. Marcel O’Gorman, University of Waterloo
The time is coming when it will hardly be possible to write a book of philosophy as it has been done for so long: 'Ah! the old style...'. The search for new means of philosophical expression was begun by Nietzsche and must be pursued today in relation to the renewal of certain other arts, such as the theatre or the cinema.
