modern English culture.  Essays might address (but are not limited to):

it; the display of "others" or of "foreigness" itself, or of foreign
objects; interactions with the Ottomans, with the Levant, the Mediterranean
etc.; mercantile and trade patterns and their importance; "foreign"
characters or locations in literature and art; the representation or
assimilation of "foreign" religions or philosophies.

The symposium is held in conjunction with the annual James Edwin Savage
Lecture in the Renaissance; this year's lecture will be delivered by
Lawrence Danson of Princeton University on the evening of April 15.
Symposium participants are encouraged to attend the lecture.
