Renaissance Legacies: Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference
Saskatoon, May 1999
CALL FOR PAPERS Renaissance Legacies: Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference May 13-15, 1999 University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society and the Humanities Research Unit at the University of Saskatchewan invite submissions for a conference on the theme of "Renaissance Legacies." We invite contributors to imagine the conference theme broadly. We welcome papers which explore the specifics of early modern inheritance practices, literary and artistic representations of inheritance, and of the relations between individuals, families and land, and questions of cultural and historical inheritance. What does early modern culture "inherit" from the past and what is its "legacy" to the modern world? What are the ideological implications of terms like "inheritance" and "generation" in discussions of historical and cultural continuity and change. The PNRC is an interdisciplinary conference. We actively solicit papers from historians, art historians, music scholars, and scholars of the full range of early-modern languages and literatures. Located in the heart of the Canadian prairies, Saskatoon is a vibrant city of close to 200,000 people. The University of Saskatchewan campus overlooks the steep tree-lined banks of the South Saskatchewan River, which divides this "city of bridges" in two. The Saskatoon International Airport, only ten minutes from the city centre, is served by three major international airlines with connections to all major Canadian and U.S. cities.
