Proposals are sought for a session examining the movement of Counter-Reformation orthodoxy and ideologies throughout Europe and the Colonial World, to be held at the 2015 meeting of the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC), October 22-25, in Vancouver B.C. Possible topics might include the migration of Counter-Reformation spirituality and thought throughout a changing socio-political world, the production, translation, and dissemination of religious texts, policies of censorship and expurgation, and examinations of the diverse cultural and political circumstances that shaped the reception and interpretation of Counter-Reformation orthodoxy and ideology. Papers should relate to the period covered by SCSC, defined roughly as 1450-1660. This session is sponsored by the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing (SHARP). Proposers need not be members of SHARP to submit, but panelists must be members of both SCSC and SHARP in order to present.
