We invite proposals for panels and/or papers on any topic relating to the
17th and 18th centuries.  Of particular interest is the theme of

        Reconfiguring the "Baroque," the "Enlightenment," and
        "Neo-classicism" in the context of world cultures and global
        exchanges in the Early Modern Era

We encourage interdisciplinary approaches and hope to set up some panels
consisting of scholars from different disciplines.  Submissions by
graduate students are also encouraged.  Also planned is a round-table
discussion on interdisciplinary teaching of early modern topics.

Send panel proposals by 15 December 1996 and paper proposals by

The above is a copy of the call for papers being distributed on the
internet.  We are following Gordon Sayre's suggestion and putting out a
preliminary request for panel proposals (due 12/15), which we wanted to
keep as open as possible.  After we receive any additional proposals, we
will send out another call after 12/15, listing all of the panels
submitted in addition to the ones suggested during our last meeting.

The Website is in progress.
