John Skelton was the preeminent English poet of the early sixteenth century. Since his death, however, readers have often seen him merely as a literary example of the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. This panel seeks to challenge the idea of Skelton as a ítransitionalí figure. Topics may include (but are not limited to) Skeltonís formal innovations, his view of the politics of the 1520s, his depictions of power, as well as his reception history. Send 250- to 300-word abstracts to Tristan Samuk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: September 30, 2012

The 2013 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location. The 44th annual event will be held in historic Boston, Massachusetts, a city known for its national and maritime history, academic facilities and collections, vibrant art, theatre, and food scenes, and blend of architecture. The Convention, located centrally near Boston Commons and the Theatre District at the Hyatt Regency, will include keynote and guest speakers, literary readings, film screenings, tours and workshops.
Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
