Antiquity and the Visual Arts in Renaissance Italy

Posted By Robert G. Glass, Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Updated: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

The reception of antiquity has been fundamental to understandings of Italian Renaissance art since the period itself, and with every generation, scholars have rethought the relationship. These sessions aim to consider the topic in light of current trends in the field. Papers are invited that examine the reception of antiquity in Italian Renaissance art from perspectives such as:

  • Identity: antiquity in the fashioning of the identities of patrons, artists, institutions, or places
  • Globalism and/or alterity: the reception of non-Roman antiquities; antiquity as Other
  • Temporality: typological, anachronic, or other responses to antiquity that depart from or challenge linear conceptions of time
  • Marginality: antiquity in centers vs. peripheries/margins—geographic, pictorial, or other

Please send proposals to Robert Glass ( by Tuesday, May 31, 2016.

As per RSA guidelines, proposals should include the following: paper title (15-word maximum), abstract (150-word maximum), keywords, and a very brief curriculum vitae (300-word maximum)
