CFP: How to do things w/ early modern words: Interdisciplinary opportunities, dialogues, & method...

July 30, 2019

2020 will see the publication of the first two volumes of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Aphra

Behn. Editing Aphra Behn’s remarkable oeuvre has involved an international and interdisciplinary

team of scholars, drawing on expertise from across the humanities. ‘How to do things with early

modern words’, a three-day conference to mark the 350th anniversary of the start of Behn’s public

career, aims to celebrate and develop interdisciplinary approaches to early modern studies. Bringing

together researchers working in all fields represented within the edition, including literature, history,

theatre history, language, and digital humanities, between 1500 and 1750, the conference will

explore cutting-edge themes, perspectives and approaches in scholarship on the early modern

world.

 

Keynote speakers:

 

Professor Terttu Nevalainen

University of Helsinki

 

Professor Martin Dzelzainis

University of Leicester

 

Dr Ruth Ahnert

Queen Mary University of London

 

Professor Tim Harris

Brown University

 

We invite papers which explore and/or critique interdisciplinary approaches to early modern

scholarship, alongside discussions of digital technology, conceptual advances, or new archival

discoveries within or across disciplines. Please submit abstracts (300 words) for 20-minute papers,

complete panels (comprising 3 or 4 papers), workshops, or 10-minute Pecha Kucha presentations

to EMWords2020@gmail.com by Monday, 23 September 2019.
