New Research in Italian Quattrocento Sculpture

Posted By Elizabeth Petersen, Thursday, May 11, 2017

CFP: New Research in Italian Quattrocento Sculpture”

RSA 2018 New Orleans

Quattrocento sculpture in central Italy has been fundamental to the study and understanding of the Italian RenaissanceThe glow of fifteenth century sculpture has faded somewhat in recent decades, however, because of anunderstandable desire to expand knowledge about and appreciation for works outside of such long privileged areas.  A revival of interest seems to be underway, however, with the appearance of a  few recent books such as Amy Bloch’s Lorenzo Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise and some eye-opening exhibitions, such as “’Fece di scoltura di legname e colorì’. La scultura del Quattrocento in legnodipinto a Firenze.We seek proposals that continue to consider sculpture in fifteenth century Italy, but from more up-to-date points of view.  Research that encompasses new approaches to the material, such as digital and technical analysis or interdisciplinary studies, will be especially welcome.


Please email proposals to both Elizabeth Petersen ( and Martha Dunkelman ( by Thursday, 1 June 2017. Proposals should adhere to RSA guidelines and include a paper title (15-word maximum), an abstract (150-word maximum), keywords, and a very brief curriculum vitae (300-word maximum).
