BeschreibungCALL FOR PAPERS:
Frühe Neuzeit Interdisziplinär at Sixteenth-Century Studies Conference (St. Louis, Missouri (U.S.A.), October 23-26, 2008).

Each year, Frühe Neuzeit Interdisziplinär (FNI), the society for early modern German studies, sponsors a set of sessions at the Sixteenth-Century Studies Conference, which will convene in St. Louis, 23-26 October 2008. [Please note that sponsorship does not include financial support.] FNI welcomes abstracts of 300-500 words for individual papers or sessions in all fields of early modern German studies (including history of art and music, literature, history of science, and all subfields of religious and social history) for the period 1450-1660. To encourage comparative perspectives, panels may include one member whose research is based outside the German lands.

While all topics are considered, papers and panels on the following themes are especially encouraged:

As a complement to this year’s FNI conference theme of “Loss”, what did it mean to “win” in the early modern period? How was success produced and defined? How was it perceived and celebrated? What kinds of “winners” existed and what influence did their gender, social, political, religious, and economic position have in creating and defining them? Topics covered may include: studies of particular cases of victory or accomplishment; triumphal celebrations; weddings and baptisms; artistic and musical portrayals of victory; literary works on success (secular or religious); honor and success; the social benefits and costs of winning.

With the development of scholarship on masculinity as well as the continuing strength of women’s history, gender (as experience, system, and concept) has become key to understanding historical, literary, and artistic developments. Panels and papers might examine (or re-examine) the usefulness of gendered language and ideas; relate gender to other systems of power and privilege; compare male and female experiences; or explore men and/or women as representations or as social beings.

Abstracts should be sent to Christine Johnson, Department of History, Washington University in St. Louis, Campus Box 1062, One Brookings Drive, St. Louis MO 63130, U.S.A. Submissions may be made either in electronic or hard copy form, and must be received by March 15. Individual papers not selected for FNI panels will be forwarded (if desired) to the appropriate thematic divisions of the SCSC program committee. Panels may be submitted for FNI sponsorship independently or in conjunction with submission through regular SCSC procedures.
