Robert Southwell (1561-1595) has garnered increasing attention from Early Modern scholars during the past two decades, including five books and numerous articles. Still he would seem to hold on precariously to his status as a minor literary figure in the canon of English literature. This session invites papers that evaluate and comment upon any portion of Southwell's poetry or prose, and/or his influence upon other writers. Especially welcome are papers that speak to the reception of particular works by Southwell during the previous four centuries, or the role of particular works in shaping Southwell's reputation today. Send your name and affiliation, a paper title (15-word maximum), an abstract (150-word maximum),
A good abstract will state the topic and argument and will inform specialists in the field of what is new about the research. Generalities known to everyone, or research that a scholar intends to do but has not yet begun, are not appropriate. Relevant information, e.g., the presentation of a newly discovered manuscript or work of art, should be included. Regular sessions do not submit a separate session abstract, but only the abstracts of each paper. Individuals and session organizers are asked to edit abstracts as they'd like them to appear in the online program and conference app. Abstracts will not appear in the printed program, but will appear in the online and app programs. RSA will edit paper titles and session titles for correctness and consistency.
