Kathleen Comerford Discussion

CFP: Jesuit Studies panels at the Sixteenth Century Society & Conference, 26-29 October 2023 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.

The 2022 annual meeting will be held in person. A submission at this stage assumes a commitment to attending an in-person conference.

The SCSC is a conference focused on global early modern (c.1450-c.1650) scholarship in a variety of fields (Art & Architectural History, Digital Humanities, English Literature, French Literature, German Studies, History, History of Science & Medicine, Interdisciplinary Studies, Italian Studies, Pedagogy and Professionalization, Spanish and Latin American Studies, and Religion and Theology). Members present papers or posters, or engage in round-table discussions. For more information, see

The Journal of Jesuit Studies sponsors panels and round tables at SCSC. Please submit abstracts on topics related to Jesuits on the subjects above, focusing on Jesuits around the world in the early modern period, of no more than 250 words, along with a short list of keywords, and a BRIEF CV (no more than 300 words, including affiliation, rank and one or two important publications or other evidence of scholarship) to Kathleen Comerford, kcomerfo@georgiasouthern.eduno later than April 10, 2023. Please follow instructions carefully, as the submissions module does not allow flexibility of interpretation.

The SCSC encourages the participation of international scholars and warmly welcomes early career researchers and postgraduates to the academic community. The SCSC is a not-for-profit scholarly organization and therefore receives no governmental or institutional funding. The Journal of Jesuit Studies is also unable to offer funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institutions or organizations will need to fund travel and lodging expenses in addition to a $250 per delegate registration fee ($125 for registered students). Advance registration online is recommended. For an additional administrative charge, registration may also be completed at the meeting. Please note that conference registration fees are non-refundable. The fee supports conference facilities, general events at the conference, membership to the SCSC, and one year’s subscription to the Sixteenth Century Journal.
