The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual papers and complete sessions for its annual conference, to be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Geneva (Switzerland) from 28-30 May 2009. The SCSC is an interdisciplinary scholarly society that is interested in the early modern era (ca. 1450-1660), and its geographical scope is broadly defined. We also welcome roundtable proposals sponsored by scholarly societies that are affiliated with the SCSC.
The 2009 SCSC conference is timed to coincide with the 500th Anniversary of John Calvin's birthday and marks a departure from the Society’s usual conference timetable. Although the SCSC prefers papers in English, proposals for presentations in French, German, or Italian will also be considered. Proposals will be accepted until 7 November 2008. The program committee plans on notifying potential participants within two weeks of the proposal deadline.
The conference will take place immediately following the conference “Calvin and his Influence, 1509-2009” sponsored by University of Geneva’s Institut d'histoire de la Réformation and the Faculté autonome de théologie protestante, enabling those who wish to attend both events to do so with a single voyage.
Beginning August 1, 2008 proposals with abstracts (up to 200 words in length) for papers and complete sessions for the SCSC meeting should be submitted on-line at:
