I am soliciting papers for a proposed panel on early
modern literature and economic criticism for the GEMCS  (Group for
Early Modern Cultural Studies) Conference to be held in
Newport, CA,  October 23-26, 2003.
Approaches to the topic may include such things as

    money, gender and sexuality in literature
    the early modern commodity and commodification
    restricted and general economy in early modern literature
    the definition, limits, possibilities of economic criticism
    class and symbolic economies
    "the market" as an enabling/disabling critical category
     post-structuralism, post-Marxism, post-humanism and economic criticism.

Ideal participants will combine literary investigation with
an interest in method and theory.
Please e-mail your abstract of 250 words to me at by 4/15/03.
