The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) invites proposals for individual presentation submissions and complete panels for its 2019 annual conference. Under the presidency of Walter Melion (Emory), the conference will take place from 17–20 October 2019 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch Hotel in St Louis, Missouri.

 

The SCSC was founded to promote academic scholarship on the early modern era (c. 1450 – c. 1660).  The Journal of Jesuit Studies sponsors panels related to early modern global Jesuit studies: history, theology, art, architecture, music, and literature.  We accept proposals for individual papers, poster sessions, workshops, or panels.

 

Because the JJS has a global focus, we emphasize that we have an interest in scholarship which covers the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Oceania, as well as Europe.  Please note that, with the exception of small stipends available for graduate students, the SCSC can offer no travel support.

 

Please submit abstracts (up to 250 words in the length), along with a brief CV, to Kathleen Comerford at kcomerfo@georgiasouthern.edu, by April 1, 2019.

 

More information is available at www.sixteenthcentury.org, but please note that the website is currently being redesigned to improve the submission process.
