MadLibs: Overly-Specific H-Net CFPs Edition!

Do you ever find yourself mystified by the simultaneously vague but overly-specific calls for papers on H-Net? If so, this game’s for you! Here’s how to play. First, go have a look at H-Announce for inspiration. Perhaps you’d like to fly or take a train to the Netherlands and read a paper for a 20-minute talk on the topic of “style as assemblage” for the “Sensing Style: Subcultural Movements in the 21st century” symposium. Maybe you have a paper to contribute on the topic of “Provocative Parables at the Intersection of the Secular and the Supernatural.” If so, great! If not, that’s also OK. Either way, you can still play along as we make up our own vague-but-specific humanities CFPs!

Use entries from the table below to fill in the blanks. Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to make up your own 🙂
