The Society for Reformation Research (SRR: 
website at ), 
a North American scholarly organization and 
partner group to the Verein für 
Reformationgeschichte, is concerned with 
furthering scholarly research on the Protestant 
and Catholic Reformations and all other aspects 
of religious life in the early modern era. 
Following our mandate, we will sponsor a variety 
of sessions at the 2007 annual meeting of the 
Sixteenth Century Studies Conference held in 
Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA), from October 24-28 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

We will accept papers and sessions on any theme 
related to Reformation research, but are 
particularly interested in sponsoring a series of 
sessions this year on the theme of "Reformation 
Encounters with the Other." Papers could treat 
any number of themes involving encounters between 
differing groups in the area of theology, 
religion, social and political relationships and 
arrangements, travel narratives and literature, 
and so on, in any context or period affected by 
the Reformation or the long sixteenth century (c. 1450-1650).

We also seek papers for a series of panels 
entitled "Religion on the Brink of Reformation," 
intended to bring medievalists and early 
modernists together for comparative and epoch-bridging discussion.

Finally, as always, we would like to sponsor a 
limited number of sessions on approaches to teaching the Reformation.

We encourage proposals both for individual papers 
as well as full sessions; we particularly welcome 
panels that offer closely focused comparisons 
across national borders or those that include 
scholars and scholarly approaches from different 
continents. Papers should not have been 
previously presented at any other scholarly 
meeting nor have been published. The deadline for 
submitting paper proposals (by mail or email) is March 15th.

If you would like to present a paper under the 
auspices of the Society for Reformation Research, 
or for more information about our programs,
