The Society for Reformation Research (SRR: website at http://www.reformationresearch.org/ ), a North American scholarly
organization and partner group to the Verein für Reformationgeschichte,
is concerned with furthering scholarly research on the Protestant and Catholic Reformations and all other aspects of religious life in the early modern era. Following our mandate, we will sponsor a variety of sessions at the 2006 annual meeting of the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah (USA), from October 26-29.
We will accept papers and sessions on any theme related to Reformation research, but are particularly interested in sponsoring a series of sessions this year on the theme of "Media and Reformation in the Long Sixteenth Century (1450-1700)." Papers could treat any number of themes dealing with the content and praxis of mediating and transmitting the Reformation, including preaching, singing, printing, architecture, reading, prayer, schooling, popular piety and practice, and so on, in any context or period affected by the Reformation.
Additionally, we would like to sponsor a limited number of sessions on approaches to teaching the Reformation.
We encourage proposals both for individual papers as well as full sessions; we particularly welcome panels that offer closely focused comparisons across national borders or those that include scholars and scholarly approaches from different continents. Papers should not have been previously presented at any other scholarly meeting nor have been published. The deadline for submitting paper proposals (by mail, email, or fax) is March 15th.
If you would like to present a paper under the auspices of the Society
for Reformation Research, or for more information about our programs,
