Call for Papers 2016-17

The Renaissance Workshop invites proposals for the 2016-17 academic year. The workshop brings together those interested in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies to discuss the work of graduate students and faculty. Joshua Scodel from the Department of English and the Department of Comparative Literature and Timothy Harrison from the Department of English are its faculty sponsors, and students and faculty attend from departments throughout the University, including but not limited to Art History, Classics, Comparative Literature, English Literature, Germanic Studies, History, and Romance Languages. This year we continue to encourage presentations from across the humanities and aim to foster an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. In the past, scholars have circulated work on topics such as early modern poetry, prose, and drama; the intersection of epic and lyric; the depiction of women in portrait books; attention and theological practice; and ecological catastrophe in the early modern world. Papers submitted for presentation may be in the category of a range of academic genres, i.e., a dissertation chapter, article draft, or conference presentation.

If you have a work in progress that you would like to present for discussion and feedback at this year’s workshop, please submit a proposal to Beatrice Bradley (bbradley@uchicago.edu) or Jo Nixon (ejnixon@uchicago.edu) by September 1st. We ask that proposals be no more than 250 words. The Renaissance Workshop meets on alternating Mondays from 5 to 6:30 pm in Rosenwald 405. Please join us for our first meeting of the 2016-17 academic year on October 3rd.
