Violence and Trauma in the Early Modern World

Posted By Colin S. Rose, Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Call for Papers for RSA 2019: Violence and Trauma in the Early Modern World

 

Recent historiography has stressed the centrality of violence to early modern history. Interpersonal violence, state violence and military violence have all come under scrutiny for the ways that violence shaped lived experiences and disrupted civil society. This panel seeks to expand on this growing school of thought by asking: how did the trauma wrought by violence and crisis change people’s perspectives on the world around them? Were people inured to its impact, were they fascinated by the danger in their streets, were they deeply troubled by the instability of the world around them? This is an interdisciplinary call for proposals for papers for RSA 2019 Toronto dealing with any aspect of violence and trauma in the early modern world. Papers may address history, literature, art, philosophy or any combination of disciplines present at the RSA in order to build a productive interdisciplinary conversation.

 

Please send:

  • paper title (15-word maximum)
  • abstract (150-word maximum)
  • curriculum vitae (.pdf or .doc upload)
  • PhD completion date (past or expected)
  • full name, current affiliation, and email address

Printing, Reception, Editing, and Teaching Thomas More and Early Humanists

Posted By Emily A. Ransom, Tuesday, July 24, 2018

The Amici Thomae Mori is excited to welcome proposals for papers on Thomas More studies to coincide with the publication of the new Essential Works of Thomas More (Yale University Press, 2019).  This single-volume, accessible, readable edition will be the third major collection of More’s works in nearly five hundred years, after the 1557 Workes published by More’s nephew William Rastell and the Yale Complete Works in fifteen volumes completed in 1997. Though papers on all areas of Thomas More studies will be considered, the Amici is especially interested in topics that will complement this important publication, such as print history of humanist texts, reception history of Thomas More and early humanists, editing humanist texts, and teaching humanist texts in the modern classroom.

 

To submit a paper, please send your title (15-word max), abstract (150-word max), a few keywords, CV, PhD completion date (past or expected), and affiliation to Emily Ransom (ransome@uwgb.edu) by August 10, 2018.

Defining Space: Walls and Cities in the Early Modern World

Posted By Luis J. Gordo Pelaez, Thursday, July 19, 2018

Walls have been an omnipresent feature of human settlements since ancient times. Even today they continue to be apart of our daily life and discourse, whether for politically driven purposes (i.e. US border “security”) or satyr (i.e. the now defunk website, Bricking it for Canada). Whether ancient or contemporary, walls have contributed to defining and redefining spaces, creating a sense of place and identity, demarcating physical boundaries, and imposing socio-economic hierarchies of inclusion and exclusion. In the context of early modern cities, walls experienced a resurgence as a consequence, among others, of expanding empires and colonizing efforts, the development of warfare technology and new systems of fortification, and the implementation of directives regarding the distribution and use of urban space. Whether materialized or not (Richard Kagan has examined their absence in inland colonial Spanish America), walls were a common occurrence in the schemes of early modern urban theorists and planners, and a frequent instrument of discussion in the political and socio-economic plans of absolute regimes, particularly in foreign dominions. For better or worse, walls have maintained their relevance. Framed by contemporary understandings of walls, this session aims to examine the relationship between cities and walls during the early modern era from a global comparative perspective. Papers that interrogate this interplay in any of its manifestations (conceptualization and building, notions of agency and perception associated with these infrastructures, the dichotomy inside/outside, narrative and graphic representation, and materiality) during the period 1300-1700 are particularly welcome to this comparative panel. 

 

Please send paper titles (15-word max.); abstracts (150-word max.); brief CVs; PhD competition date (past or expected); full name, current affiliation, and e-mail address to organizers (Cody Barteet, cbarteet@uwo.ca; and Luis Gordo-Peláez, luisgordopelaez@csufresno.edu) by August 8, 2018. Submission guidelines are available at https://www.rsa.org/page/2019SubmissionsGuide .

The Society for the Study of Early Modern Women (http://ssemw.org) will sponsor up to four panels at the 2019 annual conference of the Renaissance Society of America (RSA), to be held in Toronto, 17-19 March 2019. I am soliciting proposals for pre-formed panels in any discipline that explore women and their contributions to the cultural, political, economic, or social spheres of the early modern period. Proposals that include young/emerging scholars are especially welcome. 

 

Sponsorship of a panel by the SSEMW signifies that the panel is pre-approved and automatically accepted for presentation at the RSA annual meeting.

 

Proposals for a pre-formed panel (or linked panels) should be sent to Molly Bourne (mhbourne@syr.edu), SSEMW associate organization representative for RSA, by no later than Wednesday 1 August 2018 with the following materials, assembled into a single Word document (no PDFs please):

 

-        Abstract (max 150 words) describing the panel

 

-        Names of Panel Organizer(s), Chair, Speakers & any respondent(s), including institutional affiliations + email address for each participant

 

-        One-page CV for Organizer(s) & Speakers only; max 300 words each (not in prose) 

 

-        For each paper: title (max 15 words), abstract (max 150 words) & keywords (up to 4)

 

-        Specification of any audio/visual needs

 

Decisions regarding SSEMW panel sponsorship will be sent out at least seven days prior to the regular RSA submission deadline (15 August 2018) for submission of panel or paper proposals.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
