>The 14th Annual Conference for the Group for Early Modern Cultural
>Studies (GEMCS) will be held from February 22-25, 2007, in Chicago at
>the Palmer House Hilton (hotel rates: $115.00 per night, single or
>double.) The theme for this year's conference is Reconstructing
>Histories, 1550-1850 and is intended to foster discussions about the
>ways in which perceptions of literary, cultural, social, and economic
>history have changed during the last decades.  We invite papers,
>panels, discussion groups, and workshops that examine both early
>modern engagements with the making and unmaking of these histories
>and those that explore our contemporary understandings of our
>disciplinary narratives.  In defining these historical and
>metacritical questions broadly, GEMCS provides a forum for innovative
>inquiries into all aspects of early modern culture and we encourage
>proposals on all aspects of early modern cultural studies.
>
>GEMCS grew out of a need for a truly interdisciplinary organization
>that spans the early modern period and provides a forum for scholars
>to explore how our understandings of class race, gender, the body,
>sexuality, science, trade, colonialism, and nationalism continue to
>be reshaped by ongoing work in critical and cultural theory. The
>rubric "cultural studies" encompasses a variety of disciplinary
>fields--among them literature, history, art history, political
>science, anthropology, sociology, science and technology studies, and
>philosophy--and it allows for a variety of approaches: feminist,
>materialist, multiculturalist, gay, lesbian, and queer.  GEMCS
>defines the early modern period broadly to include the Renaissance,
>the eighteenth century, and the early nineteenth century, and we
>remain committed to fostering critical dialogues across traditional
>boundaries of historical specialization and sociopolitical
>geography.  We are particularly interested in expanding dialogues
>about the relationships between European national and linguistic
>cultures and their counterparts in Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
>
>We invite proposals in the following areas for the 2007 conference,
>but, as always, encourage papers, panels, and discussions on other
>topics dealing with the period between roughly 1550 and 1850:
>
>* Rethinking the Public and Private Spheres
>* Nation and National Identity
>* Transcultural Exchanges within Europe and Beyond
>* Comparative Imperialisms
>* Locke and Materialism
>* European Sciences and Indigenous Forms of Knowledge
>* Trade, Colonialism, and Gender
>* Women Writers and the Problem of Genre
>* Beyond the "New Formalism"
>* Manuscript and Print in the Early Modern Period
>* Multidisciplinary Approaches to Early Modern Studies
>* Biocultures
>* Technology and the Body
>* The Problems of Periodicity: Rethinking the "Early Modern"
>* Rethinking Character, Rethinking Genre
>* Teaching Early Modern Cultural Studies
>* The Nature of the Object
>* Animals and their Companion Species
>* Transatlantic Exchanges
>* Things and their Destinies
>
>Panel organizers should reserve half an hour to forty-five minutes
>for discussions so please ask each speaker to limit his or her
>presentation to no more than fifteen minutes. Please send abstracts
>for complete panels (approx. 500 words) or individual papers (approx.
>250 words) to [log in to unmask] using the subject line "Group for Early
>Modern Cultural Studies." Abstracts should include academic addresses
>for all panel participants and their e-mail addresses.  The deadline
>for abstracts for individual papers, roundtables (six to eight
>participants), and paper sessions (three to five participants) has
>been extended to October 10, 2006.  We have begun this year a policy
>of rolling acceptances, so you will hear within three weeks whether
>your proposal has been accepted.  Scholars participating in this
>year's conference include Kim Hall, Maureen Quilligan, Bryan
>Reynolds, Bruce Boehrer, Laura Brown, Robert Markley, Thomas DiPiero,
>James Thompson, Donna Landry, Lennard Davis, Devoney Looser, Tita
>Chico, Rajani Sudan, Helen Thompson, Wolfram Schmidgen, and Lisa
>Freeman, among many others.
>
>
>Updates and hotel information are being posted on the GEMCS website:
>http://english.fsu.edu/gemcs. The registration fee for the annual
>conference includes membership in the Group for Early Modern Cultural
>Studies and a year's subscription to the Journal for Early Modern
>Cultural Studies published by Indiana University Press. For
>information about the journal, see http://iupjournals.org/jemcs.
