CFP: MLA 2011 -- "Emotion at the Renaissance Court"

The following CFP information has been making its way around the blogosphere and has already been posted on the UPenn site, but I wanted to do my part to support a colleague's work. The session organizer, Brad Irish, is a UT Austin doctoral student specializing in Tudor literature and history. He also just successfully delivered a paper at the 2009 MLA conference. The title of this proposed session keys directly into his own dissertation research on "powerful feelings" at the Tudor Court.

Emotion at the Renaissance Court, MLA 2011

Proposed special session seeks papers considering emotion and affect in the early modern courtly sphere. The emotional life of a courtier, emotional displays at court, emotion in courtly literature, etc. Abstracts by Mar. 2 to Bradley J. Irish (
