CALL FOR PAPERS
TRADING PLACES: Male Portraiture and Performances of Identity in Early Modern Italy
Proposals for a special session at the annual conference of the Renaissance Society of America to be held in Tempe, Arizona, April 11-13, 2002. Abstracts sought for a panel on male portraiture in early modern Italy. Desirable submissions will re-read ‘Renaissance Man’ as an unstable and anxious socio-cultural construct and will address the performance of gender, class, and/or race. 20-minute papers might focus on issues such as ambiguous identities, blurred boundaries or failed masquerade within a variety of portrait types (self, individual, family or group portraits, donor portraits within religious narratives, political portraits, allegories and personifications). Interdisciplinary approaches and new methodologies are encouraged.
Please send 150-word abstract and 1-page c.v. by April 15th, 2001 to Allison Levy, Center for Research on Women, Newcomb College, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA 70118; firstname.lastname@example.org; 504-865-5238 (office); 504-862-8948 (fax).
