>
>Proposed Panel: The Social Work of Same-Sex Alliances
>in the Early Modern Period
>
>Alan Brays _The Friend_ has sparked a great deal of
>discussion about the ways in which same-sex alliances
>fit within, and signify to, larger social, political,
>or cultural formations.  For a proposed panel at RSA
>2006, in San Francisco, we invite papers that consider
>same-sex associations and representations under the
>shelter of, or in tension with, other allegiances: to
>marriage, to patron, to genre, to nation, or to
>politics, to name only a few possibilities.
>
>In particular, how do representations  literary,
>visual, historical, or otherwise  of same-sex
>associations, in their varied forms, reshape our sense
>of early modern ethical or political obligation? How
>do same-sex alliances fit with, or conflict with,
>other forms of affiliation and obligation? Do such
>alignments reconfigure social, literary, political, or
>performative worlds, or reinforce their gender
>hierarchies? How do these interconnections shape our
>sense of same-sex acts and identities in the early
>modern period? What difference does gender make to
>these questions?
>
>Papers that explore other aspects of same-sex
>eroticism or affiliation are also welcome, and
>comparative or cross-cultural approaches are
>particularly encouraged.
>
>By 15 May 2005, please email abstracts (250 words
>maximum) with a brief CV, as MSWord attachment or in
>the body of an email, to panel organizers Penelope
>Anderson, [log in to unmask], and Catherine
>Burriss, [log in to unmask]
>
>Participants must be RSA members or pay membership at
>time of submitting.
