“Confraternities, Prayer, Good Works, and Society”

Posted By Konrad Eisenbichler, Friday, May 20, 2016

“Confraternities, Prayer, Good Works, and Society”

The Society for Confraternity Studies will sponsor a number of sessions at the 2017 meetings of the Renaissance Society of America  (30 March-2 April 2017) in Chicago, USA. 

It thus invites proposals for papers that examine late medieval and early modern confraternities under one of the following three topics: the devotional practices of confraternities, their involvement in charitable activities, or their participation in society and social structures. We are interested both in specific case studies of individual confraternities and in more extensive overviews of confraternal devotion, activities, and social engagement.

Proposals should include the presenter’s name, academic affiliation, postal address, email, telephone, the paper title (no longer than 15 words), the abstract of the paper (no longer than 150 words), a brief academic C.V. (not longer than 300 words), and a series of key-words that suit the presentation. Please be sure all nine (9) categories of information are clearly provided.

Please submit your proposal to Prof. Konrad Eisenbichler at:

Deadline: Wednesday, 1 June 2016.

PLEASE NOTE: the deadline is only days away!

Prof. Konrad Eisenbichler
