Journal of the Northern Renaissance

... www.northernrenaissance.org is a new peer-reviewed, open-access online journal dedicated to the study of early modern Northern European cultural production. The journal will be alert to the full variety of early modern cultural practice, publishing articles on literature, the visual arts, philosophy, theology, political theory and the scientific technologies of the Northern Renaissance. It places a special emphasis upon interrogating the Southern European derivation of our inherited paradigms and delineating the significance of alternative cultural geographies. Although it is anticipated that attention will converge upon the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the journal is particularly open to attempts both to challenge existing periodizations of the Renaissance in the North and to establish continuities with earlier and later epochs.

Issue 1 contents:

Andrew Hadfield (Sussex) on Olaus Magnus and The Idea of the North

Jeffrey Chipps Smith (Texas) on Durer, Nuremberg and the Topographies of Expectation

Jane O. Newman (California) on Walter Benjamin Between Renaissance and Baroque

Jane Stevenson and Peter Davidson (Aberdeen) on Ficino in Aberdeen and the Continuing Problem of the Scottish Renaissance

Adrian Streete (Queens University, Belfast) on Francis Quarles and the Discourses of Jacobean Spenserianism

Kathryn Murphy (Jesus College, Oxford) on Robert Burton's Response to the Gunpowder Plot

R. W. Maslen (Glasgow) on Dreams, Freedom of Speech and the Demonic Affiliations of Robin Goodfellow

Issue 1 also features reviews from Willy Maley, Shona McIntosh and Andreas Dahlem. JNR will publish book, performance and exhibition reviews on a rolling basis, so make sure to check back regularly.

Amity in Early Modern Literature and Culture


We are pleased to announce that the third Annual English Literature Symposium at the University of Portsmouth will be on Amity in Early Modern Literature and Culture and will take place on September 17th 2009. We are delighted that Professor Lorna Hutson will be the plenary speaker at this event.

In recent years, discussions about early modern human relationships have been dominated by the topic of sexuality and eroticism, with the result that non-erotic relationships have been reductively misunderstood within this theoretical approach. This has meant that the complexity, diversity and importance of non-erotic relationships have not been given due scholarly attention; and this neglect has limited our understanding of the connection between such relationships and other important cultural phenomena in this period such as selfhood, individuality and freedom, virtue, formality, intimacy and privacy.

The term 'amity' provides a more specifically Renaissance definition of affectionate relationships, incorporating a wider range of types of relationship than just friendship, including loving-friendship, benevolence, affection and relationships connected by the soul. This will become a means of examining Early Modern, intimate, non-sexual relationships in a more sophisticated way.

To that end, the symposium organisers would welcome papers that include,
but are not limited to, the following themes: the literary representations of amity, the relationship between amity and self-fashioning, amity within literary communities or coteries, the relationship between amity and reading, and the influence of classical philosophy, renaissance humanism or Christian theology on the conceptualization of amity.

Papers should be no longer than 20 minutes in length. If you are interested
in presenting a paper, please submit a 100 word abstract to Dr Bronwen Price (bronwen.price@port.ac.uk) and Dr. Paraic Finnerty (paraic.finnerty@port.ac.uk) before June 20th 2009.

Shakespeare, Oaths and Vows

Professor John Kerrigan
University of Cambridge

Thursday, 23 April 2009
5.30pm - 6.30pm, followed by a drinks reception
The British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace,
London, SW1Y 5AH

Free Admittance

The language-world of early modern England was thick with oaths and vows, ranging from casual profanity in taverns to the solemn undertakings of those marrying or accepting public office. Moralists urged the seriousness of oaths; casuists advised on how to undo them. There were religious, legal and philosophical debates about what it meant to swear and how firmly one should keep a promise. The literature of the time reflects the prevalence of oaths and vows and the arguments about their status. But Shakespeare was exceptional in the density, depth and subtlety with which he explored these issues. His plays and poems are full of oaths and vows doing structural, psychological and verbally minute, inventive work. This lecture will seek to rectify scholarly neglect of the topic, highlighting Shakespeare's awareness of the paradoxes of oath-taking and vowing and their potency in performance. The aim is not just to elucidate a key element of his artistry but to understand more fully his general construction of human experience.

About the speaker
John Kerrigan is University Professor of English 2000 in the University of Cambridge, a Fellow of St John ’s College, and one of the leading critics of English literature. In 1998 he won the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism for: Revenge Tragedy: Aeschylus to Armageddon, an ambitious study in comparative literature. His research covers Shakespeare, early modern literature, and modern British and Irish poetry. His latest book is Archipelagic English: Literature, History, and Politics 1603–1707 (2008).

Shakespeare Lecture
In 1910, Mrs Frida Mond requested that an annual lecture be delivered ‘on or about 23 April on some Shakespearean subject, philosophical, historical, or philological, or some problem in English dramatic literature or histrionic art, or some study in literature of the age of Shakespeare’.

copy of The Posies. This session is being repeated from the 2007 seminar
as it was so popular.

Anyone interested in applying for a Society for Renaissance Studies
bursary should email the organiser, Gillian Austen, in the first
instance, outlining what aspect of Gascoigne's work you would like to

Doctoral Studentships (17th-Century Intellectual and Literary History)


Two Doctoral Studentships are advertised by the Humanities Division of the

University of Oxford, both to be held for the three consecutive academic years 2009-

12. They are fully funded, covering all college and university fees and providing a

maintenance grant at current AHRC rates (£12,940 per year at 2008/09 rates). These

studentships are a part of the ‘Cultures of Knowledge’ project, funded by the Andrew

Mellon Foundation, which has been established to explore the history of seventeenthcentury

intellectual life through the study of correspondence networks in the British

Isles and northern/central Europe. Drawing on the unrivalled collections of Oxford’s

museums and libraries, the project will bring these resources to scholars throughout

the world, variously through the construction of catalogues, editions, and the

establishment of modern international collaborations.

The first studentship will be attached to a subdivision of the ‘Cultures of Knowledge’

concerned with editing in printed form the correspondence of the antiquary and

natural philosopher John Aubrey. The second studentship will be attached to a

complementary subdivision of the project, producing a calendar of the correspondence

of Aubrey’s contemporary, the physician and naturalist Martin Lister. In Oxford,

these two subdivisions are both directed by Dr. Rhodri Lewis (St. Hugh’s College)

and Dr. William Poole (New College).

Applicants are welcome from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, including – but in

no sense limited to – literature, history and history of science. Experience in working

with early modern manuscripts is essential. Further, the successful candidates will

have attained BA and Master’s degrees, and will have proposed thesis topics that

relate directly to the concerns of the ‘Cultures of Knowledge’ project.

The individuals will be supervised in their doctoral research by a member (or

members) of the ‘Cultures of Knowledge’ team, who – in addition to Lewis and Poole

– include Prof. Pietro Corsi, Prof. Howard Hotson, Prof. Peter Harrison, Dr Jim

Bennett and Dr Noel Malcolm. The Aubrey studentship will be held within the

English Faculty; the Lister studentship will be held within the English or the History

Faculty, depending on the student’s own disciplinary background, needs and

intentions. Successful candidates will be expected to dedicate one day per week to

assisting in the construction of the aforementioned edition and calendar. Office space

and IT equipment will be provided for this work.

For further information about either the positions or the “Cultures of Knowledge”

project, contact Dr Rhodri Lewis (rhodri.lewis@ell.ox.ac.uk) or Dr William Poole

An interdisciplinary postgraduate conference
University of Stirling, Scotland.
Friday 8 May – Saturday 9 May 2009

Plenary speakers:
Professor Catherine Belsey
Professor Christopher Norris
Dr John Lavagnino

‘All revolutions, whether in the sciences or of world history, occur merely because spirit has changed its categories in order to understand and examine what belongs to it, in order to possess and grasp itself in a truer, deeper, more intimate and unified manner’
G.W.F. Hegel

Hegel’s belief in the redemptive power of revolution – that revolution is part of an essentially benign process of history – is at odds with Friedrich Nietzsche’s position that revolution is a ‘source of energy in mankind grown feeble but never a regulator, architect, artist, [or] perfector of human nature’. This tension over the nature of revolution constitutes our point of departure in an interdisciplinary forum that seeks to explore ‘revolutions’ and the language of revolution, with the aim of fostering discussion and understanding of both bloody and bloodless revolutions throughout the history of the arts. How will the revolution in digital media affect the future of the book? Has Marxism been swept aside by the competing claims of racial, ethnic and gender groups? How is language itself overturned in the pursuit of revolutionary aims? Has ‘the subject’ really been liberated by postmodernity and poststructuralist theory?

While the overall focus of the conference is textual, the organisers welcome papers from a breadth of research areas, which may include, but are not limited to:

Book History and Textual Culture
Modern Languages and Translation
Publishing Studies
Film and Media Studies
Religious Studies
Medieval Studies
The Gothic
Queer and Feminist Studies
Popular Culture
Postcolonial Studies

Papers that present problems and questions rather than absolute conclusions are particularly welcome. The organisers are looking for contributions from fellow postgraduate students and early-career academics. Please send abstracts of 300 words for a 20-minute presentation plus brief biographical details to Gary Cape and Steven Craig at textual.revolution@stir.ac.uk by Friday 20 March 2009. (Please note the singular form of ‘revolution’ given in the conference email address)

Shakespeare and 1590s drama

CFP for a panel at the Renaissance Society of America, Venice, 2010

This is a call for papers that consider Shakespeare's plays in relation to other drama staged in 1590s England. One way of approaching this topic might be through examining the influence of dramatists such as Marlowe or the early Jonson or Chapman on Shakespeare (or vice versa), but other possibilities might be:
- the place of Shakespeare's plays in the repertory of the Lord Chamberlain's Men
- the ongoing influence of earlier plays such as _The Spanish Tragedy_ that maintained a place in 1590s repertories
- different ways of conceiving the relationship between Shakespeare's output and other companies' repertories: competition? partnership? derivativeness? political/religious debate?

Please email an abstract (200 words max.), details of any audio-visual requirements, and a brief CV including contact details to Dr Tom Rutter of Sheffield Hallam University by 1 May 2009.
