Deadline Extended: The Psalms and English Renaissance Lyric

Posted By Thomas Fulton, Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Recent scholarship has highlighted the importance of the psalms in translation as early modern England’s most popular poetic collection. But how different is the psalter from other collections of lyric poetry usually considered secular? Despite the period’s many calls to separate “godly psalms” from “lewd lays,” did readers actually make this distinction and where did they draw the line? What role did the psalms play for private readers, singers, and scholars outside of the church and what role did other forms of poetry play within it?  Is it possible to distinguish the psalms’ aspect as liturgical texts from their aspect as lyric poetry?

The Rutgers Medieval-Renaissance Colloquium invites papers on any aspect of the psalms in early modern England. Work on the interchange between the psalms and lyric poetry often thought of as secular is especially welcome. Topics might include (but are not limited to):

·       The psalms and other poetic collections, such as sonnet sequences and miscellanies, and more.

·       The psalms and their literary translators: Wyatt, Philip and Mary Sidney, Milton, and others.

·       The psalms and “secular” poetry

·       The psalms and the history of reading

·       Print culture and psalmody

·       Biblical hermeneutics and literature

·       Liturgy and lyric

Please send a paper title, 150-word abstracts, and a CV to Jeremy Specland (jeremy.specland@rutgers.edu) and Thomas Fulton (thomas.fulton@rutgers.edu) by 5 PM Wednesday, August 14th.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Sainthood and the Limits of Exemplarity

Posted By Hannah J. Friedman, Tuesday, August 13, 2019
Updated: Tuesday, August 13, 2019

The deeds, lives, bodies, and words of the saints prompted standard responses that could vary in quality and tone but were all organized around a principle of exemplarity. Did this exemplarity have limits, exceptions, or fractures? In the often explicit exhortations to emulate the actions of the saints, were reservations or misgivings expressed either in practice or in theory? Where did the concerns about discernment expressed in confessor’s manuals and theological treatises intersect with the presentation and depiction of the visionary and miraculous in the lives of both recent and ancient saints? Were the less-than-exemplary episodes in many saints’ biographies always in an unproblematic contrast with a dramatic repentance and redemption? Where did anxieties about Reformation critiques come into Catholic discourse on the exemplarity of the saints? How did the limits of exemplarity play out in the Protestant context? For this panel, we invite papers from across disciplines that explore the limits of exemplarity in early modern sainthood.

 

Please email submissions (15-word max. paper title, 150-word max. abstract, short CV, subject area, and keywords) to hf2377@columbia.edu by 10:00 am on Thursday, 14 August.

The Reception of Byzantine Texts and Objects in the Renaissance, 1453-1700

Posted By Santiago F. Pena, Sunday, August 11, 2019
Updated: Sunday, August 11, 2019

The recuperation of Greek tradition, one of the most significant cultural events in the Renaissance, has been studied accordingly. However, the reputation of the actual Medieval Greek civilization during that period has received less attention. To focus on the reception of the Greek world retracing the afterlives of classical authors could lead to overlook the widespread fascination with Byzantine texts and objects in Renaissance Europe. The writings of Nilus Kabasilas, for instance, shaped discussions about church union from the Council of Florence to that of Trent, while Michael Psellos' demonology had a lasting impact on early modern conceptions of witchcraft. The present panel will explore the reception of Byzantine texts and objects in the Latin and Greek worlds from 1453 to 1700 with the aim of bringing these stories to wider scholarly attention.

 

 Topics may address, but are not limited to:


- The collection, copying and printing of Byzantine literature
- The interpretation of Byzantine texts in the Latin west and Ottoman Empire
- The collection and interpretation of Byzantine objects, whether secular or religious
- The role of the Greek church in confessional polemic
- The legacy of Byzantium in political thought

Please send 150-word abstracts with a two-page CV that includes PhD completion date to Sam Kennerley (sjk76@cam.ac.uk) or Santiago Francisco Peña (santiagofpenagmail.com).

"Every Line Conceals a Secret". The Drawing-Book, The ‘Written’ Language of Artists

Posted By Francesco Moschini, Saturday, August 10, 2019
Updated: Saturday, August 10, 2019

Every Line Conceals a Secret

The Drawing-Book, The ‘Written’ Language of Artists

In light of the fact that artists from the Renaissance to the present day have used piccoli libretti for sketching and libri disegnati to explore and develop ideas (the definitions are, respectively, those used by Leonardo Da Vinci and by Giorgio Vasari), a new way of looking at drawing and a new historical/critical approach are needed. The drawings and other signs, lines, marks made in a book in fact form a graphic continuum made up of cross references, interweavings, intersections, series, sequences, progressions and regressions. Every page on which a drawing is made and each drawing (whether considered in isolation or in relation to the pages that precede or follow it) form part of a broader graphic ‘discourse’ which the book, as an indivisible whole, records – if not always in linear order. The artist’s ideas (figures, imaginings, concepts and designs) flow freely – as we learn from Vasari’s anecdote regarding Leonardo and the Last Supper – but page after page they become clearer, above all to the artist himself, rendered intelligible via a singular form of ‘written’ language: the drawing. As full pages alternate with blank pages, a complex and stratified relationship with time emerges in this continuous/discontinuous language of notes, comments, recollections, quotations, ideas, notions, concepts, projects, pauses, silences and indecision.

Topics:

The artist, the creative process and drawing-books from the Renaissance to the twentieth century

Drawing as the ‘written’ language of artists

A comparative history of drawing in the context of sketchbooks, notebooks, workshop books or copy books of painters, sculptors, architects and designers

Theory, history, interpretation and case studies of drawing-book as a continuum or as a ‘discourse’

Materials, contents, languages and aesthetics of the drawing-book

Taxonomy, validity and value of the accumulations of multiform drawings, signs, marks, lines on the pages of drawing-books: preparatory drawings, sketches, rough drafts, projects, diagrams, doodles, experiments, notes, numbers, crossings out, etc.

Proposals should be submitted by August 15th, 2019 until 15.00 pm (Europe) in the form of a title (maximum 15 words), an abstract (maximum 150 words) and a short CV (including full name, current affiliation and email address), to be sent to comunicazione@accademiasanluca.it and to vita.segreto@gmail.com for the attention of Vita Segreto and Francesco Moschini.

Organizers: Francesco Moschini, Secretary General and Professor of Art and Architecture History, Accademia Nazionale di San Luca, Rome; Vita Segreto, Professor of Early Modern Art History, Accademia di Belle Arti, Rome.

Babel: Multilingual Poetry in the Colonial Americas

Posted By Caroline Egan, Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Babel: Multilingual Poetry in the Colonial Americas

In the colonial Americas, a specifically multilingual poetry was created and recreated as Amerindian, Classical, and European traditions met in the aftermath of 1492. Early historians preserved and translated indigenous lyric in their works, while missionaries attempted to reconcile the poetic traditions and languages of Old and New Worlds, often for the purpose of proselytization. At the same time, poets memorialized the Americas in the style—and sometimes even the language—of the Greco-Roman classics. How do these multilingual poetic traditions grapple with epistemic, figural, metric, and performative differences? How do processes of translation, adaptation, and recreation coincide in the production of multilingual poetry in this context? What are some of the differences among multilingual poetic traditions in different regions and periods of the early Americas, and what are some of their common characteristics?

Please send:

  • paper title (15-word maximum)
  • abstract (150-word maximum)
  • curriculum vitae (5-page maximum)
  • PhD completion date (past or expected)
  • and full name, current affiliation, and email address

to Caroline Egan (cre36@cam.ac.uk) and Nicole Legnani (nlegnani@princeton.edu) by 12 August 2019.

Ten Years After – The Impact of the Sacco di Roma on Art and Architecture 1527–1537

Posted By Johannes Röll, Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Ten Years After – The Impact of the Sacco di Roma on Art and Architecture 1527–1537

The "Sacco di Roma", the plundering of the city of Rome by the troops of the German Emperor Charles V in May 1527, was regarded by many contemporary witnesses as a terrible disaster. The Florentine Francesco Guicciardini called the Sack of Rome "la più mesta, la più spaventevole, e la più vituperosa tragedia" in his “Storia d’Italia” (written 1537–1540, published 1561), and Sebastiano del Piombo stated in 1531: "Ancora non mi par essere quel Bastiano che io era inanti el sacco". Palaces were burned down and their inhabitants held to ransom, blackmailed or killed. The lansquenets pillaged churches and monasteries, robbed their treasures and relics and destroyed many archives and libraries. Pope Clement VII and his entourage had to spend seven months in Castel Sant'Angelo. During the Sacco and the following plague the population of Rome was cut almost in half. Many artists fled the city, but some were directly involved, such as Benvenuto Cellini, who led the papal artillery, while Maturino, Polidoro da Caravaggio’s co-worker, as well as the engraver Marco Dente died during the Sacco or in its immediate aftermath.

Notwithstanding, less than three years later, on February 24, 1530, Charles V was on his 30th birthday crowned by Pope Clement VII in Bologna. After the victorious battle in Tunis in the summer of 1535, Clement’s successor Paul III even granted the emperor and his army in 1536 a solemn entry into the city using the antique Via Triumphalis. Substantial urban transformations were carried out on this occasion. These political events fell into a period of new prosperity and growth - Rome was thriving again. Ten years later, it seems that hardly any traces of the catastrophic event could be seen in the city. Destroyed or badly damaged buildings such as the Palazzo Massimi alle Colonne had been rebuilt, and other projects were underway, such as the Palace of Paul III on the Capitoline Arx or the reopening of the building site of Saint Peter’s. As early as 1536, the lawyer Johann Fichard from Frankfurt in his travelogue "Italia" praised the Roman palaces in detail for their splendor and beauty.

This session focuses on the decade between 1527 and 1537. Our goal is to evaluate and discuss the actual impact of the Sacco di Roma on art and architecture in Rome. It has been a commonplace that nothing remained in Rome as it was after 1527, especially in the field of the arts. But was this really the case? Or did artistic activity merely come to a halt for a short period, to be taken up again all the more intensely? Was there any continuity? Are there any other circumstances leading to a significant change in the artistic approach in the eternal city between the pre- and post-sack era?

We invite papers addressing architecture, painting, sculpture, the applied arts as well as the graphic arts, but also topographical subjects, individual artists, workshops and their organization, specific commissions, contemporary perception and debates, discussing the impact of the Sacco, or lack thereof, in the ten years following the event.

As required by RSA, proposals should include a paper title (15-word maximum), an abstract (150-word maximum), keywords, and a very brief curriculum vitae.

All presenters must become members of the Renaissance Society of America, be committed to attending the conference in Philadelphia, and make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

Deadline: 13 August 2019

Please send your proposals to Johannes Röll (Roell@biblhertz.it).

*Deadline Extended: Aug 12* Ill-Behaved Women in the Italian Renaissance

Posted By Victoria G. Fanti, Monday, August 5, 2019
*Deadline extended to Aug 12* 

 

"Well-behaved women seldom make history:" so goes the popular saying, first penned by the historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich in the 1970s. Although Ulrich has more recently argued that well-behaved women should make history, rule-breaking women retain a powerful allure in history and modernity alike.
 
This panel proposes an exploration of ill-behaved women in the Italian Renaissance, crossing disciplines like literature, art, the history of medicine and science, law, and beyond. Potential avenues of inquiry might include (but are not limited to): 
- How did rule-breaking women present themselves (or, self-fashion) through literature, art, etc.? 
- How were representations of such women--historical or fictional--crafted, and how were they received? 
- What conditions fostered praise or condemnation? 
- What justifications were provided for their rule-breaking?  
- How did medicine, science, and legal processes discuss women's deviant behavior? 
- How did depictions of women's bad behavior intersect with factors like nationality, race, rank, or age?
 
Please submit (1) a 150-word abstract with a paper title (15 words max.), (2) up to 4 possible key words, and (3) a CV with Ph.D. completion date to vgfanti@gmail.com by August 12, 2019.

Whose Body Politic? Negotiating Political Agency in Early Modern Europe

Posted By Monica Azzolini, Friday, August 2, 2019

Since the appearance of Ernst H. Kantorowicz’s The King’s Two Bodies, the metaphor of the body politic has become common currency. Yet, in most circumstances, this has been applied to royalty or elite bodies. What would it be like to apply it to the collective bodies of the underclasses and the marginalized in society, of workmen and women, of migrants and ethnic minorities? Were these people passive actors in a history of submission and prevarication, or could they collectively negotiate spaces, rights, better living and working conditions? Are there individual or collective success stories that demonstrate the power of those with less against those with more? How did these people exert their political power and negotiated individual and/or collective rights? 

 

A set of three panels wishes to explore this theme according to a variety of approaches and methodologies. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

 

--colonial bodies and political agency

--workers, skills and technology

--gendered bodies and the politics of reproduction

--disabled, sick and monstrous bodies

--sick bodies: health regulation and segregation/quarantining

--professional bodies and corporations

--criminal bodies and political executions

--mystics, heretics, and religious minorities

 

This set of panels is sponsored by the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. The papers / already formed panels selected for this call will be automatically accepted and be part of the programme at the RSA in Philadelphia. Panelists will have to be members of the RSA at the time of the final submission. If you wish to submit a proposal/panel for consideration, please send:

 

·      paper title (15-word maximum)

·      abstract (150-word maximum)

·      curriculum vitae (.pdf or .doc upload, no longer than 5 pages)

·      PhD completion date (past or expected)

·      full name, current affiliation, and email address

·       

 to Monica Azzolini (University of Bologna) at the following address: monica.azzolini@unibo.itwith the subject “RSA Body Politics Paper” by 8 August 2019.

Equity in Early Modern Literature

Posted By Deni Kasa, Wednesday, July 31, 2019
Updated: Wednesday, July 31, 2019

This panel will explore how early modern literature addressed the legal and philosophical concept of equity. A notoriously hybrid concept, equity could be understood in this period in a variety of ways: as a flexible rule of justice that corrects rigid legalism, as a humanist interpretive principle, as part of the sovereign prerogative, as a counterpart to religious mercy, as the legal system practiced in English courts of equity, or as a loosely defined sense of fair-dealing—to name only some possibilities. Because of its wide-ranging implications and hybrid intellectual roots, equity was a fertile ground for literary exploration. We invite papers that explore equity in any genre of Early Modern literature. More specific areas for consideration might include equity and theology, equity and politics, equity and the reception of classical thought, or equity and gender. 

Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words to Deni Kasa at deni.kasa@gmail.com by August 11

Water

Posted By Letha Ch'ien, Tuesday, July 30, 2019
Updated: Thursday, August 8, 2019

Water as both substance and concept is bound inextricably to human civilization. Politics of water extend past the practicalities of sustenance to the arenas of representation and symbolism. It brings together humans and nonhuman agents; water both creates and overflows boundaries, and alternatively provides (irrigation, transportation, sustenance) or overwhelms (flood, invasion, corrosion). Water marks time and yet appears eternal, inspiring aesthetic contemplation or rapture. Water supplies metaphors and symbols. The possibilities of water studies, broadly conceived, are imbuing approaches to early modern history and culture with new inflections and directions. This panel is a moment to note past progress and future possibilities in water studies in its many manifestations including historical, cultural, formal, and ecocritical. In what ways can study of water help us collectively ask questions about the interconnected and distinct lives of people and cultural productions across times and places? Papers from a variety of disciplines and geographical focuses welcomed. 

 

Please send a 150-word abstract, a curriculum vitae no longer than 5 pages, and anticipated PhD completion date if relevant to Letha Ch’ien chienl@sonoma.edu by August 13, 2019.

CFP: Copying prints in the Early modern period: production, use and semantic approach

Posted By Soersha J. Dyon, Tuesday, July 30, 2019
Updated: Thursday, August 1, 2019

Session Title: Copying prints in the Early modern period: production, use and semantic approach.

The practice of copying print to print was a common phenomenon during the Early Modern period, one that has recently seen an increase in study. However, much remains to be done on the context of such a practice: when copying made up a major part of the print business, how was a publisher able to compete with his main competitors who circulated identical patterns? How did close social ties between printers and engravers aid or hindered the practice? How were printed copies used in a workshop (goldsmiths, embroiderers, binders etc.)? In the case of ornamental prints, how did the gradual anonymization of patterns affect their copying and their use?

This panel seeks to contextualize the framework for the production and use of the printed copy in the early modern period. To shed light on the questions above, we welcome specific methodological examples on the studies of printed copies. How can archival material help understand the daily practices and use of the copy?  What type of sources can be mobilized to study the phenomenon? Can specific contemporary collections give insight into the reception of copies? How was copying perceived by printmakers and their audience? Is the word ‘copy’ relevant to describe this phenomenon, or should a new linguistic model be used?

This panel is sponsored by the Association of Print Scholars. Short proposals (150 words maximum) and a CV should be sent to Blanche Llaurens (blanche.llaurens@gmail.com) and Soersha Dyon (soersha.dyon@gmail.com) by August 10th 2019.

CfP: Reframing Mary: Cult Images in the Early Modern Period

Posted By Kirstin J. Noreen, Monday, July 29, 2019

Session title: Reframing Mary: Cult Images in the Early Modern Period

Session abstract: During the early modern period in Italy, images of the Virgin Mary were frequently the focus of newly designed altars, shrines or chapels.  Often associated with divine origins or miraculous events, these representations played an important role in contemporary visual culture; the reframing, copying, crowning and transfer of these images developed new layers of meaning and restructured the original liturgical, political or social function of the works.  Various groups – such as the established Church hierarchy, confraternities, local lay communities, and political groups – could be responsible for the oversight, decoration, and display of these Marian images.  This session seeks papers that will explore the role of specific images of the Virgin or Virgin and Child in Italy during the early modern period.  The focus of the papers may be on the creation of new imagery in this period, or the repositioning of older images, especially in light of new concerns regarding liturgy or devotional practice.

Please send the following to Alison Fleming (flemingal@wssu.edu) and Kirstin Noreen (knoreen@lmu.edu) by August 5, 2019:

  • paper title (15-word maximum)
  • abstract (150-word maximum) abstract guidelines
  • curriculum vitae (.pdf or .doc upload, no longer than 5 pages)
  • PhD completion date (past or expected)

Posted By Marina Bezzi, Monday, July 29, 2019

Teaching and learning the Renaissance and the Early Modern period from the Global South and North

Organisers: Marina Bezzi and Joseph da Costa (King’s College London)

 

Experiences of teaching and learning the Renaissance and Early Modern periods encounters distinct challenges around the globe. In recent decades, a diverse set of regional, national and international scholarships from beyond the Global North has contributed to a wider and more plural understanding of what constituted the Renaissance and the Early Modern period. These changes posed new challenges to the public history and public engagement, as well as to the teaching of the period in primary, secondary and higher education.
 
The focus of this panel is to discuss the experiences and arising challenges of composing a relevant corpus and methodology for teaching and learning about the period in primary, secondary and higher education in different institutional and national contexts around the world.
 
We invite papers about educational, public history, digital history, and public engagement projects from around the world relating to the teaching and learning of Renaissance and the Early Modern period. Submissions from all disciplines are welcome.
 
Please submit your paper proposal by 10 August 2019 to Marina Bezzi (marina.bezzi.14@ucl.ac.uk) and Joseph da Costa (joseph.da_costa@kcl.ac.uk). Each proposal must include the following:
  • paper title (15-word maximum)
  • abstract (150-word maximum)
  • curriculum vitae (no longer than 5 pages)
  • PhD completion date (past or expected)
  • full name, current affiliation, and email address
