1. Riley, Alexander. "Notes on Images and the Social Imaginary in the Construction of Narratives about Flight 93" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p174614_index.html>

Abstract: The site in Shanksville, PA of the crash of United Flight 93 has received considerably less scholarly and mainstream attention than Ground Zero in New York, but the cultural symbolism and narrative-making being generated there is no less fascinating. From the war on terror catch phrase “Let’s Roll!” to the conflict over the initial design of the permanent memorial, the site has been and is the focus of much construction and contestation of symbolic meaning.
In this essay, I examine some of the visual evidence of this cultural work and suggest some ways we might attempt to understand how those images are mobilized culturally and how they are made elements in particular narratives about the flight and its ultimate meaning/s. The several images to be looked at here include some from the aftermath of the crash, some from the temporary memorial erected afterward and other commemorative sites in the area (e.g., the Flight 93 Chapel located about three miles from the crash site), and some from the design for the permanent memorial. This is a first and relatively brief sketch of a larger and more systematic study, hence the term “notes” in the title of this article.

2. Maríñez, Sophie. "What's in a Home? Exile, Architecture, and Self-Construction in the Works of Mlle de Montpensier (1627–93)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p526698_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In 1652, a carriage arrived at the abandoned fortress of Saint-Fargeau. Its occupant, Anne-Marie-Louise d’Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier, first cousin to Louis XIV, had just been exiled by her cousin for having participated in the Fronde. At the sight of the fortress, Montpensier broke into tears. The sight reflected the social death that exile represented for members of the nobility. Undaunted, Montpensier began reconstruction of both the castle and herself. As she hired an architect to transform the medieval structure into a courtly palace, she began rebuilding her sense of selfhood. Through exile she became an advocate of a woman's right to remain celibate or to choose her husband. Not only did she write memoirs, novels, and letters illustrating her beliefs, she also built castles in which she enacted them. Here, I examine the role her chateaux of Saint-Fargeau, Eu (Normandy), and Choisy-le-Roy (Paris region) had in her self-construction project.

3. O'Leary, Jessica. "Hypergamous Marriage and Princely Rule: Dynastic Networks and Political Negotiation in the Letters of Eleonora d’Aragona and Ercole d’Este (1477–93)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, New York, NY, Hilton New York, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p677845_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The political instability and limited influence of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Northern Italian princely states often permitted consorts to govern in their absent husbands’ stead. There is a burgeoning field of historical inquiry that sheds new light on this deputizing role of princely consorts and how they mediated their position in relation to their husbands. Until recently, historians have underestimated the influence of inherited traditions of female rulership on the role of consort. Eleonora d’Aragona (1450–93) is an excellent example of this influence in action. Eleonora inherited the Aragonese tradition of the Queens-Lieutenant and used it to interpret her role as occasional de facto ruler and wife of Ercole d’Este, Duke of Ferrara. This paper will use the letters exchanged between spouses, and their familial and courtly networks, to demonstrate how the epistolary medium could establish a co-rulership agreement in Ferrara based on the diplomatic power and political acumen Eleonora’s heritage represented.

4. Gargioni, Stefania. "Depicting a “Protestant Hero”: The Representation of Henry of Navarre in English News (1570–93)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p750014_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This proposal focuses on the figure of Henry of Navarre as "Protestant Hero" represented in the news texts published in England during the French Civil Wars and in particular between 1570 and 1593. Prior to Henri’s conversion in 1593, the English readership had followed Henry’s career as Protestant prince-hero through news. Given the many positive and widely circulating representations of Henry in the news texts, for a brief moment prior to his conversion, the Frenchman became the most famous and non-beloved non-English person at that time. The violence with which they distanced themselves from him after 1593 reveals just how much the English had come to identify with him. The analysis of Henry of Navarre’s as “Protestant hero” in late Elizabethan England could explore the ways in which the figure of a Protestant prince was highly canonized as a hero thought the dissemination of news pamphlets.
