The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual papers and complete sessions for its annual conference, to be held at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel, Fort Worth, Texas, Oct 27-30, 2011. This hotel (awarded four diamonds by AAA) is in the center of Fort Worth on historic Sundance Square, and is moments away from the museum district, which includes the Kimall Art Museum, the Museum of American Art, and the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth.
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 papers and sessions may be submitted online at: http://www.sixteenthcentury.org/conf_proposals.shtml
If you experience any difficulty with our online submission process or have questions about how to submit a proposal please send an email message to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submissions is 1 April 2011. Within four weeks after the deadline, the Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals.
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 $155 per delegate registration fee ($93 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.
