The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual papers and complete sessions for its annual conference, to be held at the Hilton Bonaventure in Montreal, Canada, 14-17 October 2010. The SCSC, founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (ca. 1450  ca. 1660), actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. We also welcome proposals for roundtables sponsored by scholarly societies that are affiliated with the SCSC.

In honor of our bilingual host city, proposals are encouraged in either English or French. 
Abstracts (up to 250 words in length) for papers and sessions may be submitted online at:<>

NB: The SCSC, a not-for-profit scholarly organization, receives no governmental or institutional funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institution/organization will need to fund their own travel and lodging expenses in addition to a $155 per delegate registration fee ($93 student fee). The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal.
