Connecting with the ancients: Philological reception in the Renaissance

Posted By Caroline G. Stark, Friday, July 13, 2018

As an Associate Organization of the Renaissance Society of America, the Society for Early Modern Classical Reception (SEMCR) invites proposals for papers on classical philology in the Renaissance to be delivered at the 2019 meeting of the Renaissance Society of America in Toronto.


Renaissance engagement with the linguistic and literary culture of antiquity - whether in the form of language study, textual transmission, or translation - constitutes a relatively coherent body of evidence through which to understand the processes of and motivations for ‘receiving’ the classics. Renaissance appropriations of Greek and Latin philology become vehicles of cross-cultural communication in an increasingly divided early modern Europe.  We welcome proposals that highlight the mutual benefits arising from closer engagement between classicists and early modernists on the topic of classical philology in the Renaissance.


The Society is committed to creating a congenial and collaborative forum for the infusion of new ideas into classics and early modern studies, and hence welcomes abstracts that are exploratory in nature as well as abstracts of latter-stage research.


Abstracts of no more than 150 words and a short CV of no more than 300 words should be sent as separate email attachments to caroline.stark@howard.edu (see the RSA's abstract guidelines and CV guidelines and models).  The abstracts will be judged anonymously: please do not identify yourself in any way on the abstract page.  Proposals must be received by August 10, 2018.


Please include in the body of the email:


• your name, affiliation, email address

• your paper title (15-word maximum)

• relevant keywords

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.

Filling In and Filling Out the Past: New Contributions to Classic Texts in Renaissance Literature

Posted By Gordon M. Braden, Friday, June 29, 2018

Filling In and Filling Out the Past: New Contributions to Classic Texts in Renaissance Literature

 

Paper proposals are invited on any instance or aspect of the Renaissance habit of writing continuations, completions, amplifications, condensations, corrections, or revisions of canonical literary works (including translations with added passages). In most cases the original works are classical Greek or Latin (William Mure’s recasting of books 1 and 4 of the Aeneid as a complete poem, with new material; William Gager’s composition of new scenes for Seneca’s Phaedra), though the topic also extends to vernacular works that acquire their own canonical status and receive similar treatment from subsequent writers (Ralph Knevet’s three new books for Edmund Spenser’s Faerie Queene). All local matters of method and motive are relevant, as are the larger statements being made, openly or implicitly, about the nature of canonicity and authorship and the relation of the literary present to the literary past. Examples that have not previously attracted attention are especially welcome.

 

This is a guaranteed session.

 

Send questions and abstracts (200 words or less), with a brief c.v., to Gordon Braden (Area Representative for the Classical Tradition), gmb5s@virginia.edu, by 1 August 2018.
