CfP: Understanding diversity in the 15th and 16th centuries

20-21 April 2023.  Edinburgh What did ‘diversity’ mean five or six hundred years ago? How did 15 th  and 16 th  century societies across the world deal with difference? What were the attitudes and beliefs that determined inclusion or non-inclusion? What were the factors that offered or withheld choices to groups and individuals? How did diversity coexist with established power bases or exist within hierarchies? Scholars in a wide range of fields are engaged in the study of historical diversity. It is hoped that this conference will bring together specialists from a correspondingly wide range of disciplines, whose interests may traditionally be seen as separate, with the intention of exploring both the differences and the similarities between them and illuminating new lines of approach. We invite papers that address aspects of diversity in the 15 th  and 16 th  centuries in relation to, for example, participation, representation, privilege, discrimination and prejudice. We hope that spe

CfP: Processing the Pandemic III: Hope —Interdisciplinary Approaches to Emotions in the Wake of COVID19

The  Centre for the Study of the Renaissance  at the University of Warwick, along with the  Center for Renaissance Studies  and the  D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies  at the Newberry Library are pleased to announce that abstracts are now being accepted for the  final phase of  Processing the Pandemic:  a multi-year series of seminars and symposia that explore how the experiences of the past may guide society’s emotional and social responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. How can we—as an open community of scholars, teachers, archivists, social workers, and practitioners—learn from these experiences and from each other in transformative, inspiring, transdisciplinary ways? How can such dialogues reframe existing discussions around the history of emotions, our responses to trauma, and how we navigate from loss to hope? Moreover, how can the study of peoples’ responses to traumatic events in the past and present help guide our own experience of the pandemic and

The aim of the workshop is to explore the wider context and foster collaborations around emerging research questions.     The 2-day workshop will treat gravitation as a case study in a wider context of interpretational moves at the turn of the 19th to 20th century from the local to the universal that took place through:    measurement circulation practices     ideas about the role of laws     translation    Each theme will start with an invited speaker who
