ALL IN THE FAMILY: EARLY MODERN INCEST NARRATIVES

Papers are sought for a proposed session on the representation of incest during
the early modern period for the 1988 Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society
of America to be held in College Park, Maryland, March 26 through March 29,
1988.

Interdisciplinary focus welcomed, including (but not limited to) literary,
historical, psychoanalytic, anthropological, legal, medical, theological, and
sociological readings of early modern incest.  Possible topics might include an
examination of the discursive practices by which early modern incest narratives
are constituted; incest as a means of negotiating sexual subjectivity; incest
as a transgression and/or perpetuation of prevailing kinship structures.

Please send 2-page abstracts or completed papers by March 7, 1997, to:

Theresa D. Kemp
University of Alabama at Birmingham
English Department
900 South 13th Street
Birmingham, AL  35294-1260
