Slavery in Early-Modern Italian Literature, Visual Arts, and Music

Posted By Armando Maggi, Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Updated: Friday, June 22, 2018
In recent years, a few art-historians and historians have dedicated fascinating studies to the concept of slavery in early-modern Italian culture, but much more work needs to be done in this area. It is worth considering that we speak of 'slaves' in Italian culture we should bear in mind that, in numerous literary texts, slaves were not only individuals marked as 'others' because coming from 'savage' countries, but Italians themselves could become slaves. The concept of 'slavery' in Italian culture is multi-layered. A comprehensive approach to all aspects of early-modern Italian culture (visual arts, operas, narratives) will shed light on a still poorly-known, albeit crucial, aspect of the Italian canon. 
Anyone interested in submitting a proposal for this session must send a 150-word abstract and a CV to Armando Maggi (amaggi@uchicago.edu) by August 1th 2018 (10 am CT).

New Aspects of Renaissance Love Philosophy

Posted By Armando Maggi, Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Updated: Friday, June 22, 2018
Italian Renaissance love Neoplatonic philosophy produced innumerable and diverse treatises, which still await to be read and examined. It is worth bearing in mind that we still miss a comprehensive history of this immensely popular literary and philosophical genre. Important academic works usually address the best-known examples (Castiglione, Bembo, Bruno, etc.) but show almost no interest in investigating the extremely inventive forms that this genre took during the sixteenth century. This session welcomes papers that address unknown or poorly-known tracts and show their cultural relevance. Anyone interested in submitting a proposal for this session must send a 150-word abstract and a CV to Armando Maggi (amaggi@uchicago.edu) by August 1st 2018 (10 am CT).

Tasso After La Gerusalemme Liberata

Posted By Armando Maggi, Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Updated: Friday, June 22, 2018

In recent years Torquato Tasso's 'late' works, which usually means all the texts in prose and verses he composed after his masterpiece, have received a renewed critical attention, primarily limited to the "Gerusalemme conquistata" and to the critical edition of key texts such as his philosophical dialogues and a "Il mondo creato." However, Tasso's fame is still exclusively linked to his epic poem. His philosophical texts, his poetic self-commentary (the two volumes of "Rime"), his numerous religious poems, and his masterpiece "Il mondo creato" deserve to be examined much more closely. Tasso is the greatest Italian early-modern religious poet, and no later author compares to him. This session welcomes papers that addresses Tasso's late works from original and thought-provoking standpoints. 

Anyone interested in submitting a proposal for this session must send a 150-word abstract and a CV to Armando Maggi (amaggi@uchicago.edu) by August 1th 2018 (10 am CT).
