Sponsored by the International Sidney Society, "New Circles, New Voices" invites dialogue between established and emerging Sidneian scholars. Sidney at Kalamazoo has long been our Society's primary venue for mentoring young scholars and introducing new projects. For this session, we particularly invite papers from graduate students and junior faculty.

The International Sidney Society is a non-profit, academic organization that fosters and promotes scholarship and teaching on the lives, works, and cultural contexts of Sir Philip Sidney (1554-1586) and of writers and thinkers closely associated with his extended family's familiar circle. Unique among literary organizations for its focus on this literary, cultural, and political group centered on a prominent family, the Society includes members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. The society sponsors sessions at several academic conferences, publishes the Sidney Journal, and promotes teaching and research related to the Sidney Circle.

Please submit abstracts of 250 words along with a participant information form required by the Congress.

Deadline: September 23, 2016
