‘Early Modern Women and Poetry’

Colloquium 2009
Call For Papers From Early Career Researchers.

In celebration of the launch of Paul Salzman’s on-line edition of Mary Wroth’s poetry we will be holding a colloquium on ‘Early Modern Women and Poetry’ at Birkbeck College, London, on 17 and 18 July 2009. The aim of the colloquium is to both showcase and further current research, on gender and poetry 1500-1700.

We are envisaging that we will probably have three main strands of papers – one on Wroth, one on Editing, and one on Women and Poetry. However, we are keen to represent and respond to current research, and so these categories may change in response to proposals. We very much hope to be able to accept some papers from early career researchers (doctoral students and researchers up to three years into post-doctoral study).

Therefore, if you think you might be able to participate, we would like to invite you to send a short abstract (200 words) of your proposed contribution to by 2 March 2009. The proposal should outline your argument, detail your primary material and briefly situate your argument in relation to what you regard as some of the key developments in the field of early modern women’s writing.

At present, unfortunately, the conference does not have funding for travel or other expenses.

The colloquium is a dual venture between the Australian early modern women’s writing research cluster and the London Renaissance Seminar.

On behalf of the organising committee: Patricia Pender, Paul Salzman, Ros Smith, Sue Wiseman.
