Greetings! Thanks for reading The Scrivener, this week coming to you all the way from India! Some great calls for papers and manuscripts have come across my desk this week, so let’s get to it!
This Rough Magic
This Rough Magic is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to teaching the art of teaching Medieval and Renaissance literature. The editors seek articles and short-essays on a variety of topics, including:
- Genre Issues
- Narrative Structure
- Philosophy and Rhetoric
New College Conference
The twentieth biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies seeks submissions for panels and individual papers.
Abstracts are particularly solicited for a thread of special sessions reflecting the conference’s traditional interdisciplinary focus: that is, papers that blur methodological, chronological, and geographical boundaries, or that combine subjects and/or approaches in unexpected ways. Further anniversary events will include a retrospective panel on the conference’s forty-year history and a Saturday evening banquet. In addition, the second Snyder Prize (named in honor of the conference’s founder Lee Snyder, who died in 2012), will be given to the best paper presented at the conference by a junior scholar.
The organizers of a panel on “More Matter, Less Art” at the 87th annual South Atlantic Modern Language Association conference seeks participants. Per the announcement:
How did poetry, theater, music, visual art, dance, architecture, and other forms of art coexist in the English-speaking world during the Early Modern period? This panel invites papers concerning the intersections of literature and the other arts during the 16th and early 17th centuries. Suggested topics include but are not limited to: the influence of religion on artistic production, the use of music in the public theater and beyond, representations of courtly masques, the musicality of verse, representations of architecture in literature, etc.
Thanks for The Scrivener! We are a mostly volunteer troupe here at TSS and would love to have you join our band of brothers. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
