CFP: Cultures of Power in the Late Medieval & Early Modern Mediterranean (RSA: Chicago, 2017)

The Mediterranean Seminar is seeking proposals for a panel, “Cultures of Power in the Late Medieval & Early Modern Mediterranean”  to be proposed for the meeting of the Renaissance Society of America to be held 30 March - 1 April 2017 in Chicago IL.

The sixteenth-century saw the transformation of the political culture and institutions of the West with the emergence of large dynastic empires, including those of the Hapsburgs, Bourbons, Ottomans, and Safavids, as well as the persistence of smaller powers, such as the Saadis, Venice, Genoa, and the Knights of St. John.

We seek papers focusing on how this manifested in the broader Mediterranean region, whether in terms of trade, the development of institutions, representations of power, developments in intellectual and popular art, literature and culture, and religious culture, doctrine and practice. Papers that combine disciplinary approaches, that are framed regionally or comparatively, that utilize innovative methodologies, or that are revisionist in nature are particularly welcome.

Please submit by June 6: a proposal including a title, 200-word abstract, CV (max. 2pp), and indicate whether you will need audiovisual support.
