CfP: Neo-Latin and the State

Chicago, 04/01/2024 – 07/01/2024

Update: The deadline has been extended to March 17, 2023.

The American Association for Neo-Latin Studies invites proposals for a panel of papers on Neo-Latin and the State to be held at the meeting of the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) to be held Jan 4–7, 2024 in Chicago, IL.

Our intent is to illustrate the diversity and richness of Neo-Latin literature as it pertains to statecraft, diplomacy, legislature, administration, political satire, political science, and the reception of ancient political philosophy. The AANLS aims 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 abstracts for 20-minute presentations dealing with topics or works loosely related to the theme of statecraft written in Latin (or Greek) from the Renaissance or after, especially those of historical, scholarly, legal, scientific, or technical significance.

Please send abstracts that follow the guidelines for individual abstracts (see the SCS Guidelines for Authors of Abstracts) by email to Patrick M. Owens, President of the American Association of Neo-Latin Studies, at by February 24, 2023. Please ensure that the abstracts are anonymous.

The organizers will review all submissions anonymously, and their decision will be communicated to the authors by April 28, which will allow for those whose abstracts are not chosen to participate in the individual abstract submission process.
