EXTENDED CALL FOR PAPERS to 12/31/2018
ENTANGLEMENTS IN THE EARLY MODERN MEDITERRANEAN
at the 7th Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies
Saint Louis University, Saint Louis, MO, USA, 17-19 June, 2019
Our present society is tightly connected: people, goods, information, and technology traverse the global community at remarkable speed, creating a complex web of relationships, or "entanglements," that cross political, social, cultural, and economic boundaries. Over the last few decades, historians have increasingly focused upon these intersections, highlighting the complexity of life both "in" and "of" the Mediterranean.
We are organizing panels that accentuate complexities or "entanglements" in the early modern Mediterranean. We are especially interested in paper and panel proposals that focus on science/medicine, economy, and religion, not only the historical intricacies but also the interaction of these topics methodologically. Additional ideas are welcome for consideration.
Please send title (15 word maximum), abstract (150 word maximum), three keywords, and a one-page CV to panel organizers Beth Petitjean and Dru Swadener at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by DECEMBER 31, 2018.
