CALL FOR PAPERS:

A session at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America,
11-13 April 2002 in Tempe, Arizona

Proposals are invited for presentations on early modern rogue books,
cony-catching pamphlets, trickster tales, and other texts in which
vagrants are central. The very real presence of rogues, vagabonds, and
'sturdy beggars' in early modern Europe had a profound cultural impact.
Fictional and non-fictional representations of these marginal figures
show that they provided a focal point for important questions about
social hierarchy and the construction and basis of social position.

Proposals are requested on the theoretical significance of what William
Carroll calls the "discourse of poverty," both in literary and in
historical texts (court cases, prose pamphlets on vagrancy and
prostitution, legislation for the poor). Work on vagrancy and gender and
interdisciplinary approaches are especially welcome.

Please e-mail an abstract and a brief curriculum vitae to Martine van
Elk at
