The Reading Early Modern Conference continues to establish itself as the place where early modernists meet each July for stimulation, conversation and debate. As in previous years,proposals of individual papers and panels are invited on research in any aspect of early modern studies relating to Britain, Europe and the wider world.
We would welcome proposals for individual papers and panels on any aspect of early modern literature, history, art, music and culture. Panels have been proposed on the
following themes and further panels or individual papers are also invited on these topics or any other aspect of early modern studies:
• plague and disease in early modern Europe
• crime, punishment and the law
• the Dutch Golden Age and Anglo-Dutch relations
• varieties of protestantism
• memory and history
• beyond republicanism: paradigms and traditions in early modern political thought
• literature and sociability
• Drama and theatre culture: spectacle, performance spaces and practices
• making and using books
Proposals for panels should consist of a minimum of two and a maximum of four papers. Each panel proposal should contain the names of the session chair, the names and affiliations of the speakers and short abstracts (200 word abstracts) of the papers together with email contacts for all participants. A proposal for an individual paper should consist of a 200 word abstract of the paper with brief details of affiliation and career.
Proposals for either papers or panels should be sent by email to the chair of the Conference Committee, Dr. Rachel Foxley, by 7 January 2013, firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome proposals from postgraduates, and the conference hopes to make some money available for postgraduate bursaries. Anyone for whom some financial assistance is a prerequisite for their attendance should mention this when submitting their proposal.
