CALL FOR PAPERS
For the 2011 meeting of the Renaissance Society of America in Montreal, Canada (March 24-26, 2011), I am seeking to put together one or more panels on
“Cultural Histories of the German Reformations.”
Studies of the Reformation in the German-speaking lands have only begun to take up the productive challenges offered by cultural studies. This is all the more regrettable since culture as a category has provided a welcome forum to forge new links between different disciplines engaged in many areas of historical research. The panel(s) seek(s) to encourage thoughts on the current state of research on the “cultural Reformation,” the title of a landmark volume of 1999, and offer presentations on the manifold transformations of the time period between 1400 and 1600 through the lens of culture.
Whether you are a historian, art historian, literary critic, or musicologist, please, send titles and abstracts (150 words in length) on topics such as:
- Historiographical considerations on what it means to practice a cultural history of the German Reformation.
- Case studies of locales, social groups, events, religious practices, etc., from a cultural viewpoint.
- Studies on Reformation visuality, textuality, spatiality, or mediality in general or specific aspects thereof.
Please, send your ideas to Helmut Puff (University of Michigan) at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15.
