Northern Renaissance Seminar: 'Everyday Life'

Date: 10 November 2007 Time: 10 a.m. - 5.00 p.m.

The importance of the everyday for understanding early modern culture and society took its main impetus from the Annales school of historiography in the 1960s and 70s, and it has long since become a main theme of new historicist and related schools of early modern cultural studies since the 1980s. In fact, the everyday has become so common a concern of Renaissance studies that we may well be taking it for granted. What is 'the everyday' in the context of early modern Europe? What is its relation to the exceptional event, the ritual moment, the conduct of political life, or the production of literature and art? How was the everyday vertically and horizontally integrated, or non-integrated, in view of regional affiliations and class and status divisions? How did artists and writers represent it - or for that matter, fail to represent it? We welcome proposals for twenty-minute papers on these and related questions. Please send proposals of c.200 words to Liz Oakley-Brown by 15 October 2007 (revised deadline)
