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
Modern England?

By 5 May 2005, please email abstracts (150 words max) to panel organizer, Kevin
Curran (

Participants must be RSA members or pay membership at time of submitting.
