Meeting Description:

In September 2011, the Early Modern Research Group (EMRG) at the University of Agder, Norway, will host an interdisciplinary conference in Early Modern studies. The goal of EMRG is to act as a collective hub for Early Modern researchers in various disciplines throughout Norway and the Nordic countries, and this conference aims at uniting linguists, art historians, musicologists, historians, literary scholars, philologists and others in presenting, sharing and developing their work, perspectives, insights and ideas in an idyllic setting at the University of Agder.

The conference will consist of four sections, Art History, History, Literature and Linguistics.

Keynote Speakers:

William E. Wallace, Washington University in St. Louis (art history)
John Henderson, Birkbeck College (history)
Terttu Nevalainen, University of Helsinki (linguistics)
Catherine Belsey, Swansea University (literature)

Call for Papers:

Aiming at inclusive multidisciplinarity, the present conference seeks to establish a productive exchange between scholars from different subfields in Early Modern research. The organizing committee invites contributions reporting concluded or ongoing original research dealing with literature, language, art, philosophy, history, music and architecture in the Early Modern period situated mainly within the context of Western European language and cultural tradition.

Abstracts should not exceed 250 words (excluding references) and are to be submitted electronically via the conference website by May 15, 2011.

Selected papers will be published in EMRG's peer reviewed open access journal Early Modern Culture Online.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
