John Donne & Nicholas of Cusa

Posted By David C. Albertson, Monday, May 15, 2017

The American Cusanus Society and the John Donne Society are co-sponsoring panels on the theme: Nicholas of Cusa and John Donne: Dialogues of Possibility. We invite proposals that relate the life, work, and reception of Cusanus and Donne as they intersect in various ways. The following are meant only as illustrative themes; other suggestions are most welcome:

·      The reception of Nicholas of Cusa’s work in early modern England, through translations or mediated through other authors

·      Metaphysical poetry as a coincidentia oppositorum

·      Intersections between visionary and artistic expression (especially De visione dei)

·      Speculations on infinity

·      Early modern star-gazing

·      The theology and poetry of the Microcosm

·      The poetry of geometrical forms

·      Dialogues of the soul or about the soul

To propose a paper, submit a paper title, paper abstract (150 words), and CV to David Albertson ( by Monday, May 29th. Papers will be limited to 20 minutes in length and should be delivered in English.
