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.

The question and experience of reading becomes more and more urgent as we rethink modes and practices of reading.  How do our current practices dissolve, shift, or reinforce master narratives of disciplinary reading? How does the text resist imposition of borders, methods, and normalization?

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.

The Nineteenth Annual Conference of the Marxist Reading GroupGenre and the Crisis of NarrativeKeynote Speakers: Peter Hitchcock, Mathias Nilges, Nnedi Okorafor23-25 March 2017University of Florida, Gainesville, FL As a cultural dominant, neoliberalism inhibits our ability to think the future. Following Mathias Nilges, neoliberalism can be understood as a dialectic of fiction and reality, and its temporal crisis can be said to be accompanied by crises of narrative in contemporary cultural forms. As the enabling fictions of neoliberalism increasingly become reality, what narrative forms can help us to once again imagine the future as difference?
