The Andrew Marvell Society will be hosting sessions on a variety of topics concerning Marvell’s poetry and prose. Proposals for papers or for sessions are now invited.

Proposals are especially welcomed on the following topics:

  • Marvell and Modern Poetry
  • Marvell and Translation
  • Explorations of “Eyes and Tears”

Abstracts only (400-500 words; a shorter 100-word abstract for inclusion in the program) should be submitted online no later than December 15, 2013 via the SCRC website's abstract submission form.

Sessions should be proposed no later than October 31, 2013.

For further information, consult Joan Faust.


We also encourage participants to apply for the John M. Wallace award for the best paper on Andrew Marvell by an early career scholar presented at the conference. The award recognizes the signal contribution to Marvell studies of John M. Wallace (1928-93), Professor of English at the University of Chicago and author of the ground-breaking interdisciplinary work, Destiny his Choice: The Loyalism of Andrew Marvell (1968). The award is open to graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty below the rank of associate professor (US, Canada), or equivalent (i.e. within the first five years of a permanent teaching appointment). Applicants should submit full papers to the Executive Secretary of the Andrew Marvell Society by 1 March 2014. Applicants should be ready to read their papers at SCRC, Exploring the Renaissance, 2014, where the award will be presented by the President of SCRC at the closing luncheon.

Program participants are required to join SCRC and are encouraged to submit publication-length versions of their papers to the SCRC journal, Explorations in Renaissance Culture. Shorter papers (up to 3,000 words) are invited for submission to the SCRC newsletter, Discoveries.

For more information, please consult Executive Secretary Joan Faust and Emma Annette Wilson at the Andrew Marvell Society.
