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.

Middleton’s Afterlives in the 21st Century (Session A: Scholarship & Performance):

What is the legacy of the Oxford Middleton (2007) and the Oxford Handbook of Middleton (2010)? How have these texts shaped critical engagement with and performances of Middleton’s works? And what futures might we imagine for Middleton criticism? This series of linked sessions welcomes papers that address any aspect of his prolific career. Topics might include:

·      Genres

·      Comedy and the grotesque

·      Performances

·      Affect

·      Editing

 

Middleton’s Afterlives in the 21st Century (Session B: Pedagogy)

How does Middleton enter our classrooms? What are some strategies for teaching his work at the undergraduate and graduate levels? How can we make a case for teaching Middleton alongside single-author courses in, for instance, Shakespeare and Jonson? Topics might include:

·      Race and ethnicity

·      Gender and sexuality

·      Disability

·      Digital humanities

·      Middleton in survey courses

·      Assignments and courses on Middleton in conversation with other authors

Concrete practices for a variety of institutional contexts are most welcome.

 

All proposals must include:

·      Paper title (15-word maximum)

·      Abstract (150-word maximum)

·      Keywords

·      AV requirements
