CALL FOR PAPERS
SIXTEENTH CENTURY STUDIES CONFERENCE
DENVER, COLORADO
25-28 OCTOBER 2001

Special Session: "Rabelaisian Satire"

We would like to invite proposals for original papers that explore the
relationship between the problematic genre of satire and the texts of
François Rabelais and/or his imitators and successors.  Historical,
epistemological, comparative, and theological as well as other critical
approaches are welcome to shed light on this intricate configuration.
Topics include but are not limited to: (re)theorizing the framework of
satire in terms of rhetoric and poetics, the question of genre; the epic
or anti-epic; the parameters of comedy, characterization, parody;
intertext(s) and classical models. Please send your paper title, an
abstract of up to 200 words and a one-page curriculum vitae by April 5,
2001 to Bernd Renner, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures,
201 East Pyne Bldg., Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544
(renner@princeton.edu).
