Call for Papers, Renaissance Society of America Conference, Dublin, Ireland, March 30-April 2, 2022


The Renaissance Society of America (RSA) is has announced that it will accept proposals for individual presentation proposals and complete panels for its 2021 annual conference, to be held March 30-April 2, 2022, in Dublin, Ireland.  The Journal of Jesuit Studies regularly sponsors up to five panels at this conference.  We are looking to organize panels in any aspect of Jesuit studies in any region, up to the year 1700.  (Please note: Sponsorship by the JJS does not guarantee acceptance to the program, as we are not an affiliated society.)


Please submit abstracts on topics related to global Jesuit studies on the subjects of: history, literature and theater, art/architectural history, music history, ethnography, religious studies, or related topics, of no more than 150 words, along with a short list of keywords, and a BRIEF CV (no more than 300 words, including affiliation, PhD completion date, rank, discipline, and one or two important publications or other evidence of scholarship) to Kathleen Comerford, kcomerfo@georgiasouthern.eduno later than August 1, 2020.  We will consider panels, individual papers, and roundtables for sponsorship by the Journal of Jesuit Studies.
