Submissions are now being accepted for the SCSC 2014 New Orleans conference.
The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is now accepting proposals for individual papers and complete panels for its 2014 annual conference, to be held October 16-19, 2014 at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana. The deadline for proposals is April 1, 2014. Within four weeks after the deadline, the Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals.
The SCSC, founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (ca. 1450 – ca. 1660), actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. We also welcome proposals for roundtables sponsored by scholarly societies that are affiliated with the SCSC.
Abstracts (up to 250 words in length) for papers and complete panels may be submitted online by following the appropriate links below.
The SCSC, a not-for-profit scholarly organization, receives no governmental or institutional funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institution/organization will need to fund their own travel and lodging expenses in addition to a $170 per delegate registration fee ($100 student fee). The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal.
