Call for Proposals, Sixteenth Century Studies Conference (October 26-27, 2017, in Milwaukee, WI)


The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual presentation submissions and complete panels for its 2017 annual conference. In this year, celebrating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's "Ninety-Five Theses," the SCSC will meet in Milwaukee, a city with a proud German and Lutheran heritage.  As always, we will accept papers on any topic within the "long sixteenth century," not just those on Germany, or Lutheran subjects.
