CALL FOR PAPERS:
MID-ATLANTIC RENAISSANCE AND REFORMATION SEMINAR
CHRISTOPHER NEWPORT UNIVERSITY, FEB 14-15, 2014
The Mid-Atlantic Renaissance and Reformation Seminar (MARRS) is a colloquium held annually at participating colleges and universities in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. Its aspiration is to host a collegial forum where Renaissance and Reformation scholars from many disciplines can share their works-in-progress. This year, the conference features four “anchor” sessions, led by: Allison Bigelow – Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture (Environmental Studies), Genelle Gertz – Washington and Lee (Gender and Heresy), Amanda Herbert – Christopher Newport University (Social Networks), Lu Ann Homza – William and Mary (Legal History). We welcome submissions on these, and any other topics related to the Renaissance and Reformation world.
MARRS is proud to feature keynote speaker Dr. Karl Appuhn, Associate Professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University, and author of the award-winning work of environmental history, A Forest on the Sea (2009).
Established scholars and graduate students are encouraged to participate, and those interested in applying may submit either individual papers or panel proposals. MARRS scholars come from a range of disciplines, including Art History, Comparative Literature, Environmental Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, History, Legal Studies, Linguistics, Literature, and Philosophy. Individual paper proposals should be a maximum of 250 words. Panel proposals should be no more than 500 words. Please email submissions as Word (.doc or .docx) attachments to Dr. Rob Pierce, Department of History, Christopher Newport University, at: firstname.lastname@example.org This year we also hope to hold a forum for advanced undergraduate students to make short (5-minute) presentations on original research which they have undertaken as part of a thesis or senior seminar project. Interested students should apply directly to Rob Pierce.
Abstract submission deadline: January 10, 2014.
This conference is sponsored by Christopher Newport University’s Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program, the College of Arts and Humanities, and the Mariner’s Museum.
Conference date and place: Feb 14-15 2014, the Mariner’s Museum and Christopher Newport University, both in Newport News VA.
