Group for Early Modern Cultural Studies: HISTORY, AUTHORITY, PERFORMANCE

The 11th Annual Conference for the Group for Early Modern Cultural
Studies (GEMCS)

Hosted by the UC Irvine Drama Department at the Newport Beach Marriott
Hotel and Resort

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA, OCTOBER 23-26, 2003

Held at the beautiful Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Resort
(overlooking the Pacific Ocean and next to "Fashion Island," Orange
County's nexus for shopping, fine dining, and barhopping), this year's
GEMCS conference will be lavish as well as stimulating. With an
extraordinary conference discount for rooms, $99 for singles and
doubles, the wonders of Southern California are rarely more affordable.

The conference topic, broadly conceived, is designed to include all work
(by graduate students, professors, and independent scholars) about human
life between, roughly, 1500 and 1800, and in any way related to history,
authority, and/or performance. In other words, we invite presentations
of scholarship dealing with the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries and about
and/or practicing materialism, historiography, literary-cultural-social
history and criticism, sexual-gender issues, hermeneutics, authorship,
aesthetics, representation, theatre, and/or sociocultural action, power,
discourse, politics, ideology, and so on.

GEMCS's annual conference, averaging 400 participants, provides a lively
forum for innovative, experimental, and alternative inquiries into all
aspects of pre-modern and early modern culture and society. We solicit
abstracts for papers, panels, discussion groups or workshops that engage
either specific or a variety of disciplines, approaches, and formats. We
encourage atypical formats such as workshops and discussion groups. To
promote intense discussion, it has been a tradition of GEMCS that
presentations be limited to 10 minutes. We ask that you try to maintain
this tradition.

Abstracts (maximum 250 words) for individual papers,
workshops/discussions (any number of participants over eight), and paper
sessions (between three and six participants), must be submitted by:
MAY 1, 2003.

Please send abstracts and inquiries to:
