Renaissance Legacies: Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference

May 13-15, 1999

University of Saskatchewan,
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society and the Humanities Research
Unit at the University of Saskatchewan  invite submissions for a
conference on the theme of "Renaissance Legacies."

We invite contributors to imagine the conference theme broadly. We
welcome papers which explore the specifics of early modern inheritance
practices, literary and artistic representations of inheritance, and of
the relations between individuals, families and land, and questions of
cultural and historical inheritance. What does early modern culture
"inherit" from the past and what is its "legacy" to the modern world?
What are the ideological implications of terms like "inheritance" and
"generation" in discussions of historical and cultural continuity and
change.  The PNRC is an interdisciplinary conference.  We actively
solicit papers from historians, art historians, music scholars, and
scholars of the full range of early-modern languages and literatures.

Located in the heart of the Canadian prairies, Saskatoon is a vibrant
city of close to 200,000 people.  The University of Saskatchewan campus
overlooks the steep tree-lined banks of the South Saskatchewan River,
which divides this "city of bridges" in two.  The Saskatoon
International Airport, only ten minutes from the city centre, is served
by three major international airlines with connections to all major
Canadian and U.S. cities.

Please submit a one-page abstract of your paper by January 22, 1999, to:

Ron Cooley
Department of English
University of Saskatchewan,
9 Campus Drive,
Saskatoon SK.  S7N 5A5
fax: (306) 966-5951

well as the addresses and e-mails of all participants.

Selection notification will be sent by March 1, 1999.
