CFP: THE HUMOROUS RENAISSANCE

1997 MLA Convention
December 27 - 30, 1997
Toronto, Canada
A. S. Weber
Abstracts Due: March 1, 1997

Dear Colleagues:

I am organizing a session for the 1997 MLA Convention in Toronto, Canada on the
literary and scientific discourses of humor pathology from the late Middle Ages
to the early modern period (circa 1400 - 1750).   Suggested topics of enquiry
may include: the language of specific texts such as Jonson's humor plays or
Burton's ANATOMY,  humoralism in literature, anti-humoral discourses
(Paracelsianism), the diffusion of the Hippocratic and Galenic textual
tradition and its cultural impact, the cross-cultural textual transmission of
medical knowledge, astrological medicine, rhetorical aspects of humor pathology
texts, etc.

Please send 500 word abstract and description of research interests via regular
mail or email (

 ) by March 1, 1997 to:

Binghamton, NY  13902.

Ficino members may also be interested in three panels of related interest at
this year's MLA convention: RHETORICS OF DISSECTION IN EARLY MODERN ENGLAND
(Session 491, John G. Norman Chair), EARLY MODERN SCIENTIFIC DISCOURSES
(Session 664, A.S. Weber Chair), and THE RHETORICS OF SCIENCE (Session 105,
Alan Rauch Chair).

Best Regards,
