The Society for Reformation Research (SRR: website at ), a North American scholarly
organization and partner group to the Verein für Reformationgeschichte,
is concerned with furthering scholarly research on the Protestant and
Catholic Reformations and all other aspects of religious life in the
early modern era. Following our mandate, we will sponsor a variety of
sessions at the 2006 annual meeting of the Sixteenth Century Studies
Conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah (USA), from October 26-29.

We will accept papers and sessions on any theme related to Reformation
research, but are particularly interested in sponsoring a series of
sessions this year on the theme of "Media and Reformation in the Long
Sixteenth Century (1450-1700)." Papers could treat any number of themes
dealing with the content and praxis of mediating and transmitting the
Reformation, including preaching, singing, printing, architecture,
literature, reading, prayer, schooling, popular piety and practice, and so
on, in any context or period affected by the Reformation.

Additionally, we would like to sponsor a limited number of sessions on
approaches to teaching the Reformation in any discipline.

We encourage proposals both for individual papers as well as full sessions;
we particularly welcome panels that offer closely focused comparisons across
national borders or those that include scholars and scholarly approaches
from different continents. Papers should not have been previously presented
at any other scholarly meeting nor have been published. The deadline for
submitting paper proposals (by mail, email, or fax) is March 15th.

If you would like to present a paper under the auspices of the Society
for Reformation Research, or for more information about our programs,
