BeschreibungCall for German Panels and Papers at the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC).

Fort Worth, Texas, 27-30 October 2011

Conference website:

This interdisciplinary conference is a preeminent venue for interdisciplinary explorations of early modern culture and closely tied to the Sixteenth Century Journal. We invite a *wide* range of submissions from historians of culture--be it artistic culture, devotional culture, elite, intellectual, literary, material, musical, popular, print, travel, visual, religious, or otherwise.

Despite the conference's sixteenth-century moniker, we encourage submissions with an expansive concept of the early modern period. Interdisciplinary panel submissions are especially welcome, and the program directors will make every effort to match all submitted panels with chairs and moderators. Individual papers are also welcome.

All submissions must be made via the SCSC website. Questions may be directed to the German program director, Bethany Wiggin (University of Pennsylvania), at

General Call for Papers

The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual papers and complete panels for its annual conference, to be held at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel, Fort Worth, Texas, Oct 27-30, 2011. This hotel (awarded four diamonds by AAA) is in the center of Fort Worth on historic Sundance Square, and is moments away from the museum district, which includes the Kimbell Art Museum, the Museum of American Art, and the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth.

The SCSC, founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (ca. 1450 – ca. 1660), 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.

Abstracts (up to 250 words in length) for papers and sessions may be submitted online at:

If you experience any difficulty with our online submission process or have questions about how to submit a proposal please send an email message to:

The deadline for submissions is 1 April 2011. Within four weeks after the deadline, the Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals.

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 $155 per delegate registration fee ($93 student fee). The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the conference fee, delegates become members in the SCSC.
