CFP: SCSC: Queens’ Speech Crossing Borders (4/10/18)

by Jessica C. Murphy

From Karen Nelson:
“We seek a third paper to support a panel at SCSC: Queens’ Speech Crossing Borders
Panel Organizers: Carrie Klaus, DePauw University, cklaus@depauw.edu, and Karen Nelson, University of Maryland, knelson@umd.edu
How and why did early modern authors report or invent queens’ speech within their own discourses? We seek a paper or papers to complete a panel on the ways that politicians, propagandists, polemicists, and other writers in the sixteenth and seventeenth century used queens’ voices, both real and imagined, to further their own ends. We are especially interested in the ways these voices circulate between and among England, Scotland, Ireland, and the Continent.
Send a proposal of no more than 250 words, including a sentence that highlights your research question, by 10 April to knelson@umd.edu and cklaus@depauw.edu. Include a 300-word cv and specification of a/v needs.”
