The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) will hold its 2016 annual conference in Bruges, Belgium from August 18th to 20th, 2016.
The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) promotes scholarship on the early modern era, broadly defined (ca. 1450 – ca. 1660). Providing opportunities for intellectual exchange among scholars of the period, the Society also actively encourages the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. The geographical scope of the organization is as international as its membership. The SCSC welcomes scholars from all disciplines in early modern studies including history, art history, religion, history of science, musicology, digital humanities, Ottoman studies, and literary and cultural studies in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. The Society holds one annual meeting in a different city each year, usually during the month of October, with an average of more than 800 participants.
The conference will be held at the Provinciaal Hof, the Crowne Plaza, and the Martins Hotel. The Submission website is now open. The proposal deadline is February 15, 2016.
