Call for Papers

The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society invites submissions for its
2003 meeting.  The theme of this year's gathering is community, with
reference both to early modern communities of many types and the
interpretive communities today that study them and their output. Plenary
speakers include Paul Stevens (Queens U) and Mark Vessey (U British
Columbia).  We invite proposals for individual papers as well as
member-organised panels and seminar-workshops that address the
conference theme or report on new and ongoing work in Renaissance
studies.  To submit a proposal, please follow this link:
http://web.mala.bc.ca/siemensr/PNRS2003/PNRS-Proposal.asp. The deadline
for proposals is 31 January 2003.

About the PNRS and Malaspina U-C

The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society is an academic organization
that promotes scholarship in Early Modern Studies by hosting an annual
conference. The conference is held alternately in the United States and
Canada and is open to all scholars and graduate students from North
America. Traditionally the conference features two plenary speakers
(speakers in the past have included Stephen Greenblatt, Barbara
Lewalski, and Alexander Leggatt), up to twenty sessions of three to four
papers each, a formal dinner and a business lunch.  The PNRS is an
affiliate of both the Renaissance Society of America and the Canadian
Society for Renaissance Studies.  The PNRS maintains both a website, at
http://www.sfu.ca/english/pnrs.htm, and an e-mail list, at
PNRS-LIST@SFU.CA; to join this list, please send a message to
