The SRS Conference is an interdisciplinary event for scholars working on the period c. 1400-1700. Areas of study represented at previous conferences include archeaology, architecture, history of art, history, history of science and medicine, literature, music and philosophy.
The conference committee encourages proposals for panels (90 minutes, including discussion) as well as individual proposals (20 minutes); we particularly welcome panels which are interdisciplinary in scope.
Panels and papers should enage with one of the following themes:The natural world Frontiers, identity, exchange Power, protest and resistance Knowledge, truth and expertise Civil and uncivil discourse Ornament and display, performance and perception
The conference will also feature an open strand for papers which engage with themes other than those suggested.
