        CALL FOR PAPERS

        Fruehe Neuzeit Interdisziplinaer, an international
        and interdisciplinary conference and research
        group concentrating on German-speaking Europe
        during the early modern era, announces its:

        2005 Regular Conference
        Duke University
        April 7-10, 2005

        The conference brings together approximately 80
        scholars from all fields of investigation, most
        of whom present papers or participate in panels
        in various formats. Extensive time for discussion
        and personal contact is also one of our central
        goals.

        Scholars interested in contributing papers on the
        theme described below should contact Randolph C.
        Head (contact information below). We will also
        consider complete panels that are proposed,
        especially if they bring together contributions
        that are interdisciplinary in both approach and
        personnel. Send abstracts and short curricula
        vitae along with any other relevant information.
        (Those who have already made proposals are
        already in consideration, but are welcome to make
        revisions).

        The theme of the 2005 conference will be:

        ORTHODOXIES AND DIVERSITIES IN EARLY MODERN GERMAN-SPEAKING EUROPE.

        Early modern European culture was rich in
        tensions, both fruitful and destructive, between
        efforts to construct or transform normative
        systems of order on the one hand, and a growing
        diversity of practices on the other. In
        German-speaking Europe, growing formalism in
        state, church and cultural institutions
        confronted the vibrant diversity of political
        forms, religious expression and cultural
        practices that characterized the region. New
        demands for public conformity confronted new
        forms of secret knowledge and hidden practice.
        Ideals of order were subject to both contention
        among experts and confrontation with realities
        from other, increasingly interconnected spheres.
        Classificatory systems that sought to organize
        nature, human sexuality, gender, and social
        norms; reformulations of artistic canons in
        response to novel stimuli and changes in artists'
        circumstances; villages that reacted with equal
        vehemence to local dissent and outside pressure
        for conformity: these and many other situations
        reveal the terrifying as well as exhilarating
        predicaments that the people of the Holy Roman
        Empire faced.

        For its Spring 2005 conference, FNI solicits
        contributions that address normative processes
        and their contexts in literature, the arts,
        science, religion, politics or society in the
        diverse lands of Germanic Central Europe. A
        generation of research on dissent, heterodoxy and
        difference have opened the door for new critical
        approaches to the production and reproduction of
        structure, canons, and orthodoxy, as well as to
        the ways various disciplines have discussed these
        phenomena. We especially encourage papers or
        whole panels that employ theoretical and
        substantive interdisciplinary methods to address
        themes such as:

        I. (Not) Keeping Secrets: Concealment, power, dissent
        II. Canons and disciplines
        III. Representing orthodoxies, reproducing norms
        IV. Uncontainable practices: humanity, sexuality, violence


        E-mail submissions are preferred (PDF, Word, or
        RTF files).  Send all proposals and
        correspondence to:

        Randolph C. Head
        [log in to unmask]

        Surface mail:
        79 Ross Hall Blvd S
        Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA
