Subject:        CFP: Early Modern Lacan (5/01/05; RSA, 3/23/06-3/25/06)

In conjunction with the theme of a future issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook, "Shakespeare and Theory Re-thought," the journal will sponsor
a session at the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of
America (San Francisco, March 23-25, 2006.)

Jacques Lacan often turned to literature written in the early modern
period to articulate his thoughts on a wide range of psychoanalytic
issues.  During the roughly two decades of Post-structuralism's
prominence, a number of scholars of early modern literature turned to
Lacan to articulate a range of literary and cultural issues.  Some
twenty years after Lacan's death it seems worth revisiting the relevance
of his work to the study and interpretation of early modern literature.

Proposed papers may address a number of topics including, Lacan's notion
of the early modern, his reading of specific early modern works,
revisiting ground-breaking critical efforts to apply Lacanian theory to
early modern literature, potential links between Lacanian thought and
current scholarly trends such as historicism, materialism, book history,
gender/queer studies, as well as Lacanian readings of individual
literary works.

I am particularly interested in encouraging and promoting the work of
junior scholars.

Please submit title and 100 - word abstract of proposed paper along with
a brief scholarly bio by May 1 to Douglas A. Brooks (
