>One of the distinctive aspects of the Early Modern Period in Western =
>Europe is the organisational improvement as well as the increase of =
>traffic and transportation. Not only were contacts established with =
>'new' countries and continents, but at the same time an intensification =
>of contacts occurred between the various countries of Western Europe and =
>between the cities within these countries. This expansion and increase =
>of contacts were a result of and gave rise to new developments in =
>knowledge, technology, and patterns of consumption of food, luxury =
>articles and services (such as travelling).
>
>Essay topics might include:
>*   The development of new means of=20
>transportation: by what necessity
>were they created, what were their consequences in the short and in the =
>longer term, and what new needs and knowledge did they generate? *
>   How far did the cultural, political and social consequences of the =
>increasing mobility reach? Did it lead to the opening up of new areas or =
>rather to the improvement and expansion of existing routes to known =
>places? Did it lead to new contacts and connections, or only to a more =
>intensive use of already existing routes? Was there an increase in =
>travelling, or did people just travel faster and more conveniently? *  =
>Who used the new means of transportation, and who profited most from =
>them? Did they give rise to new social classes or different social
>relationships? *   What were the consequences of=20
>the increasing
>mobility on intellectual fields? Was there a concomitant increase in =
>mail and correspondence, and consequently a faster and wider exchange
>of news, information, ideas and concepts? *   How=20
>were the new
>developments of traffic and transportation represented and assessed in =
>the arts and literature? Did they give rise to new ideas and genres, =
>such as landscape painting, travel literature and utopian themes? * Did =
>the new means of transportation and the increasing mobility have =
>consequences for the infrastructure of Western Europe? Did they affect =
>city planning and the design of buildings, for instance due to the need =
>for parking space for new and bigger vehicles?

>Proposals are invited for contributions discussing these and other =

>Call for Papers --- Intersections vol. 9:

>Spirits Unseen: The Representation of Subtle Bodies in Early Modern =
>European Culture
>
>
>Spirits - gaseous, vaporous, volatile "subtle bodies" (corpora subtilia) =
>- occupied a prominent place in early modern thought. The terms =
>"spiritus" or "corpora subtilia" may refer to angels, demons and souls =
>as well as those immaterial or corpuscular energies, virtues and small =
>atomic particles that regulated natural phenomena and =
>psycho-physiological functions, in fact the whole universe and its laws. =
>Early modern notions of spirits and subtle bodies often combined
>observation, empirical evidence and religious doctrine.
>
>Despite increasing interest in early modern cosmologies, little =
>attention has been paid to problems of the representation of spirits. =
>For this reason, volume 9 of Intersections seeks to initiate a =
>discussion on the ways in which ethereal or subtle bodies were imagined, =
>described and represented in early modern philosophical, scientific, =
>religious, moral and artistic discourse. What qualities were associated =
>with energies and subtle substances in early modernliterary, poetic and =
>scientific texts? How were spirits and invisible bodies depicted in the =
>visual arts or staged in the theatre? In which
>respects do representational codes and conventions change over time and =
>differ according to social and cultural contexts and conditions?
>
>In particular, contributions are encouraged that discuss descriptions, =
>depictions and meanings of spirits across various=20
>disciplines and cultural practices, or that consider competing =
>representations indifferent visual and textual media over a broader =
>period of time. Papers may focus on such aspects of early modern natural =
>philosophy, medicine and magic as the origin of fossils, crystals and =
>rocks; the phenomena of light, heat, gravity and electromagnetism; the =
>propertiesof the air; the substance dreams were made of; the effects of =
>music on
>the animal spirits of the body. Contributions on experiments, projects =
>and executed works that (re)define models of vision and sensory =
>perception are also welcome. Early modern optics offers a particularly =
>rich field for further research: the fascination with catoptrical =
>machines and other devices of visual deception; the uses and functions =
>of mirrors and magnifying lenses in science, warfare and religious =
>practice.
>
>As unseen and invisible bodies spirits aroused artistic fantasy and =
>imagination. Possible topics include the iconography of sounds and =
>sights (in painting, the emblem literature and other literary and =
>pictorial genres) and the role of spirits and ghosts as literary motifs =
>and personae. The religious disputes of the sixteenth century led to =
>conflicting views in Protestant and Catholic culture concerning ghosts =
>and other apparitions as well as the physics of the transubstantiation. =
>Liturgical and devotional practices provide another fruitful area of =
>research: the construction of monstrances and other receptacles for the =
