The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual papers and complete panels for its 2013 annual conference, to be held October 24-27, 2013 at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 1508, Ponce de Leon established the original settlement that would, in 1521, become the city of San Juan. It is the oldest city in United States territory. Old San Juan is a designated World Heritage Site. The SCSC actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. We also welcome proposals for roundtables sponsored by scholarly societies that are affiliated with the SCSC.
The deadline for proposals is March 15, 2013. Approximately four weeks after the submission deadline, the Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals of its decision.
Abstracts (up to 250 words in length) for papers and/or complete panels may be submitted at: http://www.sixteenthcentury.org/conference/
The SCSC, a not-for-profit scholarly organization, receives no governmental or institutional funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institution/organization will need to fund their own travel and lodging expenses in addition to a $170 per delegate registration fee ($100 student fee). The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal.
