Illustrated Album Amicorum

Posted By Margaret F. Rosenthal, Tuesday, July 24, 2018

 

CALL for PAPERS: This panel is proposed for the annual Renaissance Conference of Southern California (March 10, 2019) at the Huntington Library.

Illustrated Alba Amicorum

The illustrated album amicorum (album of friends) is a singular visual example of early-modern travelers’ fascination with swiftly-changing fashions, regional customs, family lineage, and manuscript decoration. It preserves depictions of dress, local scenes of work and entertainment, modes of transportation, festivals, games, and civic rituals, and reveals major changes in fashionable and luxurious clothing and accessories. Uniting the printed book and the illustrated manuscript to transmit knowledge and thinking across early-modern Europe, it was often a luxury object in and of itself, thereby materializing within its pages an expanding world economy. Other important uses of the album amicorum were as modes of philosophical thought;  testaments to friendship; a locus where university students could freely use and manipulate the visual to reflect on serious philosophical questions outside of the classroom setting; and a vehicle for provoking laughter and pleasure. A fluid genre allowing for the coexistence of different visual genres (prints, emblems, frontispieces, fashion and costume plates) within its pages, this panel invites papers that will broaden our understanding further about its multiple uses during the early-modern period.

As per RSA guidelines, paper proposals should include the following: paper title (15-word maximum), abstract (150-word maximum), a few keywords, and a very brief curriculum vitae (300-word maximum). Please send to session organizer Margaret (Tita) Rosenthal (mrosenth@usc.edu) by August 5, 2018.
