We are looking for a panelist to join our session on ‘Subversive subjects and social criticism in seventeenth-century Western European literature’ at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America (30 March – 1 April). Johanna Ferket (University of Antwerp) will be giving a paper on the representation of prostitutes in theater plays in the Low Countries and Sven Molenaar (University of Antwerp) will give a paper on dialogue songs in the Southern Low Countries in which women discuss their sexual desires and experiences. We are looking for a speaker who has received a PhD degree, since all sessions must include at least one speaker with a PhD or other terminal degree according to the RSA guidelines, and we are both predoctoral researchers. Although both our papers approach women’s sexuality in one way or another, anyone working on subversive subjects or social criticism in Western European literature is welcome to send a proposal (see details below) to Sven.Molenaar@uantwerpen.be.
Proposal must include:
- One-page CV (max 300 words, NOT in prose)
- For each paper: title (max 15 words) + draft abstract (max 150 words) + keywords (max 4)
- Specification of any audio/visual needs
