Neo-Latin in a Global Context: Current Approaches

Sponsored by the American Association for Neo-Latin Studies (AANLS)

Organized by Quinn Griffin, Grand Valley State University

The AANLS invites proposals for a panel of papers on current research in Neo-Latin texts from around the world to be held at the annual meeting of the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) in San Diego in early January 2019. Our intent is to illustrate the diversity and richness of Neo-Latin Studies; to underscore the importance of contemporary research in the complex, international phenomenon of Neo-Latin literature; and to give scholars an opportunity to share the results of their research and their methodologies 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). We also welcome papers dealing with more recent Neo-Latin works.

Abstracts should be sent (and arrive no later than midnight EST on Saturday, February 24, 2018) to Professor Quinn Griffin at 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 2019.
