Two early modernists are seeking a third panelist for a proposed session at the Atlanta/2007 AHA annual meeting on "Presenting the Self in Early Modern Europe." We're looking for someone working on some aspect of early modern self-fashioning or identity creation.
One proposed paper would discuss early modern conceptions of the self, person, soul and human nature through an examination of the author of a 17th-century German text of judicial skepticism about witchcraft and witchcraft persecutions.
The second paper would examine the self-presentation of the authors of 17th-century French and English world atlases -- that is, how they constructed (visual and textual) authoritative identities through their atlases.
Please contact me if you are working on a related topic and would like to discuss creating a panel proposal (proposal deadline is Feb 15). Thanks!
