HAGIOGRAPHY SOCIETY

Call for Paper, Panel, and Roundtable Proposals

Renaissance Society of America Annual Meeting

Toronto 17-19 March 2019

DEADLINE EXTENDED!!!

The HAGIOGRAPHY SOCIETY invites proposals from all academic disciplines for the Toronto 2019 meeting of the Renaissance Society of America. We welcome individual papers, full panels (normally three papers, with a session chair and an optional respondent), and roundtable discussions (normally five-eight presenters).

Any topic that intersects with “sanctity in the Renaissance” is welcome: shrines, liturgies, relics, processions, miracles, laude, legendae, vitae and re-writings, sculptural and frescoed vitae. We welcome innovative approaches to the varied types of sanctity: political saints, family saints, aspiring saints, heretical saints, child saints, pilgrim saints, healing saints, warrior saints. We especially invite papers that examine saints beyond Europe, that explore holy gender beyond the binary, and that take up “Renaissance medievalism” as expressed in hagiographic revisions.

As an Associate Organization of the RSA, HS may field as many as four panels. Sponsorship of a panel by the AAR-SOF normally means that the panel will be accepted by the RSA Program Committee without further vetting, provided the panels comply with the RSA guidelines.

Proposals should include all the information listed in the RSA Submission Guidelines here: http://www.rsa.org/page/2019SubmissionsGuide#proposalcomponents .

Note the restricted length of proposals. Incomplete proposals will not be considered.

Everyone who presents at the annual meeting must be a member of RSA at the time of the meeting: http://www.rsa.org/page/2019SubmissionsGuide#membership .

Proposals should be sent to Alison Frazier (akfrazier@austin.utexas.edu) and Barbara Zimbalist  (bezimbalist@utep.edu) by 5 August 2018.

Anyone whose proposal is not accepted for the HS-RSA panels will be informed in time to submit as an individual. Please note, though, that those submissions will be evaluated by the Program Committee of the RSA.

CfP: Beyond the Microcosm: The Impact of Confraternities on the Civic Sphere

Posted By Samantha J. Hughes-Johnson, Tuesday, May 8, 2018

CALL FOR PAPERS

(Deadline: 1 August 2018)

 

The Society for Confraternity Studies will sponsor a number of sessions at the 65th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America (17 - 19 March 2019) in Toronto, Canada. Accordingly, it invites proposals for papers on the following theme:

 

Beyond the Microcosm: The Impact of Confraternities on the Civic Sphere.

 

Since the formation of the Society for Confraternity Studies, which celebrates it 30th anniversary in 2019, the subject of Confraternity Studies has moved on from what Konrad Eisenbichler once described as an “invisible history” to become an authoritative sub-field of late medieval and early modern scholarship. Accordingly, in order to encourage a discourse that places confraternities at the center of essential historical developments rather than at their periphery, we invite proposals for papers that explore the amplitude and impact of lay sodalities in Europe, the Americas, the East and Asia in relation to the activities of wider late medieval and early modern society. Papers might focus on, but are not limited to the following topics:

·     The reach and range of lesser traversed sodalities. For example, slave confraternities.

·     The relationships between lay companies and non members. For instance, confraternal liaisons with artisans, food merchants or second-hand clothes sellers.

·     Confratelli and consorelle entrusted with public service, healthcare and the custody of people or objects.

·     The influence of confraternal ritual and recreation on urban spaces.

·     Individual and familial investment in lay companies in order to garner social influence or to gain political power.

·     Associations between the devotional lives of non-clerics and the ordained: how these affinities played out in rituals, drama and music.

·     The impact of art, architecture and ephemera commissioned by confraternities on public spaces and/or the popular conscience.

Papers should concentrate on confraternal activities between 1300 and 1700. We are however, also particularly interested in proposals that discuss retrospectively, the value of studies that have emerged since the conference in 1989 and consider how Confraternity Studies will advance into the twenty-first century.

Proposals should include the presenter’s name, academic affiliation, email, 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 (7) categories of information are clearly provided. 

Please submit your proposal to Dr Samantha J.C. Hughes-Johnson at samanthajanecaroline@yahoo.co.ukby 1 August 2018.
