The Place of Latin in Renaissance Studies

Posted By Susanna de Beer, Thursday, April 20, 2017

As the discipline representative for Neo-Latin Literature I welcome individual papers or panels that consider the place of Latin in Renaissance Studies. Although Latin has of course always been an important aspect of Renaissance Studies, the last decades have seen an increase in studies that position itself explicitly in the field of Neo-Latin. How can we explain this shift? What does this mean for research and teaching in the field of (Neo-)Latin, which is often part of Classics?

Both general considerations and specific case-studies are welcome. Papers that consider the place of Latin in interdisciplinary Renaissance contexts (such as the relation between art and literature, or vernacular and Latin), and those that consider the place of Latin in Renaissance studies in University curricula would be especially interesting.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or suggestions.

Please submit your paper proposal by 20 May to Susanna de Beer ( Proposals must include the following:

  • your name, affiliation, email address
  • a paper title (15-word maximum)
  • abstract (150-word maximum) abstract guidelines
  • keywords
  • a very brief curriculum vitae (300-word maximum). Prose bios will not be accepted. CV guidelines and models
