Call for Papers in Jesuit Studies: Sixteenth Century Society & Conference, (St. Louis, Missouri)


The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) invites proposals for individual presentation submissions and complete panels for its 2019 annual conference. The SCSC was founded to promote academic scholarship on the early modern era (c. 1450 – c. 1660).

The Journal of Jesuit Studies sponsors panels related to early modern global Jesuit studies: history, theology, art, architecture, music, and literature.  Because the JJS has a global focus, it is emphasized that they have an interest in scholarship which covers the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Oceania, as well as Europe. Proposals for individual papers, poster sessions, workshops, or panels are accepted.
