The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual presentation proposals and complete panels for its 2014 annual conference, to be held 22-25 October 2015 at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The deadline for proposals is April 15, 2015. Within four weeks after the deadline, the Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals. The conference will once again host poster sessions. Poster presenters must request a poster session code prior to submission from: firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to standard panels, the organizing committee will be accepting proposals for four types of alternate panels: Workshop Option A: Discussion of pre-circulated papers in a workshop format (limit of 4 participants).
Workshop Option B: Analysis of thorny translation/paleography questions; pre-circulation not required (limit of 3 participants).
Workshop Option C: Examination of a big issue or question with brief comments from presenters and lively audience participation (similar to roundtables with more audience participation; limit of 4 participants).
Questions about formats should be directed to: email@example.com
The SCSC, founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (ca. 1450 – ca. 1660), actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. We also welcome proposals for roundtables sponsored by scholarly societies that are affiliated with the SCSC.
Abstracts (up to 250 words in length) for individual presentations and complete panels may be submitted online at: www.sixteenthcentury.org/conference
The SCSC, a not-for-profit scholarly organization, receives no governmental or institutional funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institution/organization will need to fund their own travel and lodging expenses in addition to a $170 per delegate registration fee ($100 student fee). The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal.
