We are now inviting contributions for volume 4 of the Journal of Early Modern Studies, to be released online in March 2015. Jointly edited by William C. Carroll (Boston University) and Jeanne Clegg (Università Ca' Foscari, Venice), JEMS 4, entitled Service and Servants in Early Modern Culture, 1500-1750, aims to bring together scholars from across a wide disciplinary spectrum to inquire into differences and similarities, continuities and changes in the ethics, representation and practice of service and servitude in different countries and contexts. The issue will be open to contributions on oral and visual forms of cultural expression as well as textual, and we invite studies of emerging voices and works intended for and by, as well as about, servants and service. Contributions addressing issues of class, gender, and ethnic/national representations are particularly encouraged.
