Call for Papers:
2018 CSA North American Conference
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
September 27-29, 2018

In 2018, the Cervantes Society of America will host a North American Conference, to be held at the University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, from Sept. 27-29. As its intention is to bring together scholars from across the continent, this conference will replace the regional symposia that year (usually held in California, Florida, Texas, and the Northeast). The invited plenary speaker is Dr. Mary Elizabeth Perry, author of Crime and Society in Early Modern Seville (University Press of New England, 1980), Gender and Disorder in Early Modern Seville (Princeton University Press, 1990), and The Handless Maiden: Moriscos and the Politics of Religion (Princeton University Press, 2005). There will also be a professional performance of newly-discovered 16th-century Italian musical settings for Garcilaso de la Vega’s poetry, as well as a trip to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. Proposals for conference papers are invited in all subjects related to Cervantes. There will be at least one panel dedicated to Cervantes and religion, as well as Cervantes and the ancient world.

The deadline for submitting proposed papers is January 15, 2018. Click here to download a copy of the First Call For Papers.
