Transitions 1500-1750 aims to explore a wide range of transitions from a variety of critical and historical perspectives. We are particularly interested in papers that reflect on the impact that such transitions had on early modern subjects, institutions, material culture, habits of thought as well as literary, social and cultural practices. Different disciplinary perspectives are especially encouraged.
Possible topics of study include:
- Transitional years (eg, 1534, 1558, 1603, 1660, 1707)
- Celebrating/marking/remembering transition
- Succession literature
- From stage to page
- From manuscript to print (and vice versa)
- Generic shifts
- Shifting author-patron, author-readership relations
- Historical/literary historical constructions of transition
- The intersection of the residual and the emergent
Please send proposals for papers (20mins) and any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 March 2013.
