*Call for Abstracts & Articles: APPOSITIONS: Studies in Renaissance / Early
Modern Literature and Culture, http://appositions.blogspot.com/, seeks new work
addressing the theme of dialogues & exchanges (writers/readers/texts/fields).
How and why do literary texts emerge and change within and against fields of
cultural production? Or, alternately: how and why do social forces or
technologies shape distinctive modes and forms of literary art? Or,
antithetically: how and why do literary works celebrate or challenge cultural
narratives? Beyond such chiastic formulations, what other factors (e.g.
audience, gender, identity, occasion, politics) also contribute to the dialogues
& exchanges that literary texts invite and receive? Comparative,
interdisciplinary, and trans-historical approaches are encouraged. APPOSITIONS
is an electronic, peer-reviewed, international, annual conference and consequent
digital journal for studies in Renaissance/early modern literature and culture.
APPOSITIONS is an open-access, independently managed conference and journal.
