Call for Abstracts 2020 AANLS Panel Washington, DC, January 9-12, 2020
Neo-Latin in the Old and New Worlds: Current Scholarship
Organized by Frederick J. Booth, Seton Hall University
The AANLS invites proposals for a panel of papers on current research on Neo-Latin texts from around the world to be held at the annual meeting of the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) in Washington, DC in early January 2020. We seek to highlight the variety and depth of Neo-Latin Studies; to underscore the importance of contemporary scholarship in the complex, global field of Neo-Latin literature; and to give scholars an opportunity to share the results of their research with colleagues in the many disciplines that comprise Neo-Latin studies. We welcome papers on all aspects of the study of literary, historical, scholarly, legal, scientific, and technical works written in Latin in the Renaissance and early Modern Period (to about 1800), as well as papers dealing with more recent Neo-Latin works.
Abstracts should be sent (and arrive no later than midnight EST on Saturday, February 23, 2019) to Dr. Frederick J. Booth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts should be a maximum of 650 words (not including a brief bibliography). In accordance with SCS regulations, all abstracts for papers will be read anonymously by three referees. Please follow the instructions for the format of individual abstracts that appear on the SCS web site. In your cover letter or e-mail, please confirm that you are an SCS or AIA member in good standing (and please note your membership number), with dues paid through 2020.
