APPOSITIONS: Studies in Renaissance / Early Modern Literature and Culture

E-Conference: February, 2008

Genres and Cultures

In this archive, you’ll find notes on the first-ever, fully electronic conference in the field of Renaissance & early modern literary and cultural studies.

That event took place in February, 2008. During that month alone, the Appositions site received over 4,000 hits, and 27 comments were posted in reply to the papers and special events.

Selected essays from the conference have been reviewed once more by the Editorial Board, revised and/or edited again by their authors, and then collected into Volume One (2008) of the e-journal, Appositions: Studies in Renaissance / Early Modern Literature & Culture, which you may find above on this site,

Here, in the conference archive, you’ll find the names of our presenters, the titles of their works, and the comments posted. The conference included:

* 17 Papers
* 3 Special Events

Our authors represented 6 countries (Australia, Canada, Cyprus, England, Ireland, & the United States) and, within the US, 7 states (CA, CO, IL, NJ, NM, TX, & WI).

Given the nature of our medium and our plans to link that conference to the journal, the essays that were presented were hybrids: partly for the ears, partly for the eyes; moving toward publication. All of those papers were reviewed by the Editors (and/or by other external readers) and underwent at least one round of revision and editing prior to their appearances at the conference.

If our electronic platform may seem relatively modest (considering what might be possible these days in the digital realm), our content, we hope, will strike you as first-rate material. In our opinion, we have assembled a robust gathering of articles in Volume One of Appositions that all strike a vital balance between traditional and innovative concerns in the field. The content speaks/reads for itself, but, of course, we also need and want your participation.

Here, in the conference archive, as in the journal, you may post your questions and comments via the “Post a Comment” link at the bottom of each document page.

We hope you enjoy your visit, and that you’ll share Appositions with your colleagues, friends, and students.
