I am including the CFP for the 2013 RSA in San Diego. As a Discipline Representative for History, I am responsible for submitting several sessions and I have the right of approval. If you wish to submit a paper or a session, please contact me by June 4, 2013 and I will submit it to RSA. All topics in Renaissance studies are welcome; to get your creative juices flowing, I suggest the following:
century or half-century commemorations: 1313, 1363, 1413, 1463, 1513, 1563, 1613
current hot topics: currency issues; class warfare; bank defaults; the role of universities in society
or any subject you are interested in
I plan to present on my current work; at the moment, it looks like I will be discussing the development of "reason of state" politics in the Medici Granduchy.
Please contact me with any questions or possible submissions.
Thank you, and happy Memorial Day.
We are pleased to announce the call for papers for our 59th annual meeting, to take place in San Diego, 4–6 April 2013.
The Program Committee welcomes submissions for individual papers or panels on any aspect of Renaissance studies, or the era ca. 1300–1650. Proposals will be evaluated by the Program Committee for their original scholarly contribution to an aspect of the field.
Members are invited to submit proposals for individual papers or full sessions to the Program Committee for review.
If you wish to organize a session and invite others to participate, you may post your own calls for papers on blogs set up for this purpose (http://www.rsa.org/blogpost/844524/CFPs-San-Diego-History). You must sign in as a member to post. There are four blogs: one for art history, one for history, one for literature, and one for interdisciplinary and other CFPs. You may cross-post to as many blogs as you wish. They are available on our San Diego page (http://www.rsa.org/?page=2013SanDiego, midway down the page), or via our site's main menu. Please remember that these blogs are set up to help you organize a session; neither a blog post nor a reply to a post constitutes a submission. All submissions—papers or sessions, whether organized by Discipline or Association Representatives or by individuals—must be submitted via our online submissions system in order to be considered for the program. Sessions organizers are responsible for submitting all the materials for that session, including individual abstracts and supporting information.
The online submission system is not yet open. The link will be posted on the San Diego page when it becomes available. You need not be a member of RSA to submit a proposal for a session or a paper, but all presenters whose proposals are accepted must be(come) members.
