A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
英國約克大學人文研究中心將於2016年三月1819日舉辦《書信文化:近代早期的信件及書寫》研討會。近年來,近代早期歐洲的書信研究已有相當程度的發展。研究範圍包括了對於文藝復興人文主義影響甚深的西塞羅所寫下的私人信件,商人、收藏家及科學家之間知識網路的建構,以及女人在文學界的角色。此外,研究範圍也涵蓋了近代早期書信的主要編輯計畫:如哈特利布、康米紐斯,史蓋利哲、卡索邦、布朗、葛瑞威爾以及EMLO與知識文化等計畫。本次研討會期望探討十六至十七世紀中,近代早期書信各種不同的面貌,範圍包含了書信的知識地理、拉丁與各地方言的書信連結、文類議題、書信的寫作修辭及風格、亦包含了政治、宗教、及科學界對於書信的使用與往來。
 
[Original CFP]
From the place of Cicero’s intimate letters in the development of Renaissance humanism, to the knowledge networks of merchants, collectors and scientists, to the role of women in the republic of letters, recent years have seen a flowering of studies on the practice of letter-writing in Early Modern Europe, as well as major editing projects of early modern letters – Hartlib, Comenius, Scaliger, Casaubon, Browne, Greville, and the EMLO and Cultures of Knowledge projects. This conference will explore the manifold aspects of early modern letter-writing in the sixteenth and seventeenth century in its Latin and vernacular forms. It will consider topics such as the intellectual geographies of letter-writing, the connections between vernacular and Latin letter cultures, questions of genre, rhetoric and style, as well as the political, religious, and scientific uses of letters.
