Subject:        Call for Papers

[Editor's Note: The CFP appeared on FINCIO.  HMC]

CALL FOR PAPERS (abstracts due 26 April).

Seeking 20-minute papers for a panel to be submitted to the organizers
of this year's Sixteenth Century Studies Conference (in Toronto, 22-25
October 1998). The topic will be:

"Freed from Foucault: The Prison in Reality and Representation,
1450-1650"

Papers should address experiences of incarceration, or the significance
of representations of bondage and confinement (real or imaginary), in
Europe or its periphery during the early modern period.

The aim of the panel is to contribute to a renewed and re-historicized
discussion of carceral practices as well as tropes of confinement in the
period. As the title implies, submissions should be free of narrowly
Foucauldian assumptions, since so far as early modern Europe is
concerned, Foucault's work on the subject is not reliable. (Whatever may
still be said for Foucault's account of the post-Enlightenment prison as
a quintessentially "modern" institution - as an emblem of the emergence
of "modern" individual subjectivity, self-policing and surveillance,
etc. - yet the current consensus of specialists is that Foucault's
account of earlier prisons needs serious revision, if not outright
rejection in favor of new narratives.)

Historical submissions should be conceived, at least in part, as
speculative and theoretically informed contributions to cultural
studies, and not be limited solely to the reporting of archival
discoveries (though original research is of course highly welcome).

The panel will be interdisciplinary if possible; historians, literary
historians and critics, specialists in cultural studies, historians of
religion, legal historians, anthropologists with a historical focus, and
art historians and musicologists, etc. are all invited to submit.

Please direct abstracts to N. R. Moschovakis via either the e-mail

 ) or the snail mail address below. Submission
deadline for abstracts is April 26th.

(Note: The organizers of the Sixteenth-Century Studies Conference have
extended the deadline for panel submissions to May 15th.)

Subject:        "King Lear" Site for Students

I've put up a page on "King Lear" at

http://worldmall.com/erf/kinglear.htm

If anybody can point me towards links I've missed, I'd be most grateful.

The page is controversial.

Thanks.

Subject:        Humanities Computing Position

Hi.  We are going to have a position in Humanities Computing.  The
position will be classified as an academic professional- tenure &
sabbaticals but no teaching responsibilities.  We want to find someone
who knows text analysis programs and can support faculty research and
teaching in literature and linguistics.

Can you tell me how to get this information out to members of the Assoc
Humanities Computing, ALLC: Assoc Language and Literary Computing, etc.
