Call for Panelist: Panel on The Body in Early Modern England for PCCBS

Hello,

We are looking for a third paper for a panel on the physical and/or political body in early modern England for the PCCBS (Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies), which will take place at the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA from April 1-3, 2016. 

We currently have papers on the corporeality of women’s madness as well as dress and the body politic during the Stuart era. However, we are interested in proposals that examine any facet of “the body” (widely interpreted) from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries.
