Iberian Pornographies, 1300-1650

Posted By Chad Leahy, Sunday, April 30, 2017
Updated: Sunday, April 30, 2017

We invite papers that broadly interrogate ‘pornography’ and ‘the pornographic’ in the context of Early Modern Iberia and its global colonial kingdoms. We encourage innovative responses to questions that include, but are not limited to: What new critical and theoretical tools can be brought to bear in putting the post-Enlightenment category of the ‘pornographic’ in dialogue with Early Modern texts and practices? What constitutes ‘pornography’ and where do we locate it in Imperial Spain and Portugal? What social, political, economic work does ‘pornography’ do in this context? How is ‘pornography’ regulated or resisted by institutions or individuals (i.e.  confessors, moralists, theologians, the Inquisition)? How is it circulated and consumed? In what media (manuscript or print; painting, sculpture, tapestry; poetry, prose, theater; music) is it transmitted? How do the particular material or structural constraints of a given medium affect representation, circulation, or consumption? How might the ‘pornographic’ manifest itself in unexpected places (i.e. religious art or treatises)? How might a ‘pornographic’ lens help shed new light on early modern Iberian artistic, literary, and historiographic canons? 


Please send paper titles, abstracts (150 words max.), and keywords to nick.jones@bucknell.edu and chad.leahy@du.edu by Wednesday, May 24.
