          NOVEMBER 16-19, 2000
           "IT'S ABOUT TIME"

The Group for Early Modern Cultural Studies invites
submissions for its eighth annual conference.

GEMCS is an organization formed for the study of
culture from the Renaissance to the mid-nineteenth
century. We are composed of people working in a wide
range of disciplines, including but not limited to
literature, history, art history, music, and film, and we
welcome a wide variety of disciplinary approaches.

This year's theme is "It's About Time," and we seek
proposals dealing with social, economic, aesthetic, sexual,
artistic, political, racial, and philosophical manifestations
of time. We are particularly interested in work that
shows not only the existence of such manifestations, but
how they expressed themselves culturally, and what sorts
of provisional answers emerged historically.

As always, however, GEMCS is interested in all aspects
of early modern culture.

Some suggestions for topics:

*Intimate spaces                     *Work Time/Leisure Time
*Georgraphy                          *Circadian & other Rhythms
*Bad timing                          *Being and Time
*Time Pieces, Pieces of Time         *Nations in Time
*Industrial Time                     *Bodies over Time
*Aesthetic Movements                 *Philosophical Time
*Colonial Time                       *Generations
*Technology and Time                 *Musical Beat
*Aging                               *Theories of Development
*Literary and Artistic Eras          *Disability and Time

In order to allow the greatest possible amount of discussion,
presenters will be limited to ten minutes. GEMCS actively seeks
alternative format panels; workshops and seminars on innovative
pedagogy are especially invited, and we will gladly link
information pertinent to your proposals from our website.

One-page abstracts for individual papers must include presenter's
name, complete mailing address, institutional affiliation, and
email address; proposals for panels must include one-paragraph
abstracts for each presenter, as well as his or her name, complete
mailing address, institutional affiliation, and email address.
Panels of four to six participants will be given preference.

Address all submissions by April 15th, 2000 to:

Professor Rajani Sudan
Department of English
University of Texas at Arlington
Arlington, TX 76019

Please submit either postal or email proposals (not both).
