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.

Devotional Materiality in Early Modern England

Posted By Jantina Ellens, Saturday, June 30, 2018

Seeking papers to complete a panel on material manifestations of Protestant faith in early modern England to be presented at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Toronto, March 17-19, 2019.


This panel considers how Protestant worship practices are tied to the material world. How do the physical qualities of worship influence the stereotypically “cerebral” qualities of the Protestant faith? How is the divide between public and private worship complicated by the physicality of devotion? Panelists might approach these questions by considering how Protestant devotional practices involve the body or what role texts play balancing the spiritual and the physical in Protestant devotion? They might also consider:

  • Descriptions of protestant devotional practices

  • The physicality of liturgies and/or devotional texts

  • Calvinist materiality

  • The gendering of devotional practices


Please email paper proposals, including a title and abstract of 100-150 words, as well as a one page CV (300 words) to Jantina Ellens (ellensjc@mcmaster.ca) by Sunday, July 8, 2018.

New Approaches to Catholic Reform

Posted By Marie Louise Lillywhite, Monday, June 4, 2018

Recently, scholars have approached Catholic Reform in new ways, by looking beyond Tridentine frameworks, extending beyond European borders, and challenging traditional arguments and understandings of this critical period in the history of the Church. Rather than focusing purely on a top-down enforcement of reform, or failed attempts to combat Protestantism, scholars of history, history of art, music, and literature have used new and varied approaches to understand the impact of religious reform in the early modern period and the ways in which people negotiated it.

The organizers of this panel would like to invite papers that consider Catholic Reform from across the disciplines, with the aim of contributing to a broader and more holistic understanding of the process, bringing together research from different fields and varied geographic locations. Papers might directly address new methods and approaches, or might demonstrate them through specific research, but all will contribute to a growing conversation on the nature and significance of Catholic Reform.

Potential topics could include:

-       Approaches to Catholic Reform broadly or within specific field/subfields

-       Reinterpretations of older arguments and narratives about Catholic Reform

-       The influence of Catholic Reform on music, literature, culture, politics, etc.

-       The influence of Catholic Reform on art and architecture (patronage, examples of censorship, debates concerning the nature of the sacred image)

-       Limitations of Reform

-       Reform in a global context

-       Reactions of the laity to Catholic Reform

Proposals should include the presenter’s name, academic affiliation (if applicable), email address, paper title (15 words maximum), abstract (150 words maximum) and brief academic CV (300 words maximum). Please submit proposals by July 20 to Marie-Louise Lillywhite (marie-louise.lillywhite@history.ox.ac.uk) and Celeste McNamara (c.mcnamara@warwick.ac.uk). Presenters will need to be members of the RSA by the time of the conference. The RSA offers a limited number of travel grants; see their website for more information.
