Chicago, 21/03/2024 – 23/03/2024
International Association for Neo-Latin Studies
Call for Paper and Panel Proposals
Renaissance Society of America Annual Meeting
Proposals are sought both for individual papers and for entire sessions (normally three papers), on any topic concerning Latin in the Renaissance, to be sponsored by the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies at next year’s Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, to be held in Chicago, 21 to 23 March 2024. As a large Associate Organization of the RSA, the IANLS will be allotted up to four panels. Sponsorship of a panel by the IANLS normally means that the panel will be accepted by the Program Committee for presentation at the RSA Annual Meeting without further vetting, provided the panels comply with the RSA guidelines. Please keep in mind that, if you send an individual proposal that is not part of a pre-formed panel, the IANLS cannot guarantee that the proposal will automatically fit into one of the four allotted panels.
Proposals should include all the information listed in the Submission Guidelines on the RSA website under ‘What’s in a proposal?’.
Please pay careful attention to the restricted word count, as the RSA’s submission system will not accept entries that exceed maximum limits. Incomplete proposals will not be considered. Everyone who presents at the Annual Meeting must be a member of RSA at the time of the meeting; for details see the Submission Guidelines on the RSA website under ‘RSA Membership and Eligibility’.
Applicants for inclusion into one of the IANLS panels will normally be expected to be paid-up members of the IANLS (or will be expected to join the Association).
Please do not submit a proposal unless you are confident that you will have the time and the funds to attend the meeting. Each year we see a certain number of people dropping out well past the deadline. Unexpected problems can obviously arise, but every withdrawn paper means an opportunity lost to, and a place taken from, another IANLS member, who wanted to participate.
Proposals should be sent to Marc Laureys, who is the IANLS representative with the RSA, at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than 10 July 2023. Proposals will be refereed, and everyone will be notified in due course about whether or not the proposal has been accepted by the IANLS for inclusion into one of the four panels. Anyone whose proposal is not accepted for the IANLS panels will be informed in time in order to be able to submit as an individual; please note, though, that in that case the submission will be evaluated by the Program Committee of the RSA.
