CFP: Science and Literature at the RSA, 2006

We welcome papers for a session on "Literature and Early Modern Science"
to be presented at the annual conference of the Renaissance Society of
America in 2006 (San Francisco, 23-25 March). Topics could range across
the broad set of early modern disciplines which are now labeled under
the rubric of 'science' (natural philosophy, astronomy, alchemy,
medicine, etc.), and their intersection with written methods of
transmission, both self-consciously 'literary' and those associated with
the wider history of the book. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relation between rhetoric,
poetics and scientific analogy; literary and bookish methods of
knowledge making.

Please send abstracts and brief CV's to Piers Brown
( and Jacqueline Wernimont
( by May 10th.

Participants must join as members of RSA. For information about RSA, the
conference, and membership, please consult the RSA website at
