Thomas More in history, literature, and theology

Posted By Emily A. Ransom, Wednesday, May 17, 2017

On the heels of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the International Association for Thomas More Studies is continuing to garner enthusiasm for Thomas More studies among both rising and established scholars at the Renaissance Society of America annual meeting (New Orleans, March 22–24).  Any research relating to Thomas More is invited, including:

  • Utopia (and utopias, law, transatlantic studies, travel literature, satire, etc.)
  • Richard III (and historiography, tyranny, drama, influence on Shakespeare, etc.)
  • The epigrams (and translation, poetic theory, polemics, proverbs, jestbooks, afterlife, etc.)
  • Reformation controversy (and law, ecclesiology, consensus, polemics, rhetoric, biblical translation, Luther, Tyndale, Henry VIII, etc.)
  • Martyrdom (and consolation, devotion, historiography, afterlife, competing literary legacies, Shakespeare’s Book of Thomas More, etc.)

To submit a proposal, please send a 150-word abstract and current CV to Emily Ransom ( by June 1.  Proposals will be considered as they come with a fast turn-around time.  Scholars at any stage of their careers are warmly welcome.
