Updated Call for Papers: Renaissance In-Betweenness

Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society
Annual Conference
Vancouver, BC
3-5 April 2008

The Annual Conference of the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society 
(PNRS) will be held from April 3-5, 2008 in downtown Vancouver at the 
Hyatt Regency (room rates: $141.00 per night, single or double). The 
theme for this year's conference is "Renaissance In-Betweenness," and 
our plenary speakers will be Fran Dolan (University of California, 
Davis) and Elizabeth Harvey (University of Toronto).

We invite papers, panels, discussion groups, and workshops that examine 
Renaissance engagements with various transitional figures and cultural 
artifacts. The PNRS program coincides with the annual convention of the 
Medieval Academy at the Hyatt Regency, and both organizations hope that 
conference participants will engage in fruitful conversation across a 
range of historical fields and disciplines.

We invite proposals in the following areas for the 2008 conference:

Liminal Spaces and Borderlands: urban liberties, walls, doors, 
thresholds, docks, rivers and hedges.

Figures of the In-Between: stage devils, panders, bawds, pages, 
hermaphrodites, messengers, angels, scribes, the noble savage, 
typesetters, publishers, usurers, translators, and children.

Religious via media

Generic Conventions and Hybrid Genres: in medias res, interludes, scene 
changes (jigs and dumbshows) and tragicomedy

Species Boundaries: integuments (skin, bark, pelt) and hybrid creatures

Mixed governments and interregna

Arcane Knowledge: zodiacal cusps, equinoxes, and alchemy

Suspended States: sleep, trances and exorcisms

Objects of Exchange: letters, coins, gifts, rings, jewelry, potions, 
clothes, and fabric

Places of Exchange: The Royal Exchange and pawnshops

Periodization and Historiography

Update: Please email individual abstracts (250-words) or panel / 
workshop proposals to Tiffany Alkan (
