Mencía de Mendoza presents a roster of speakers whose fields of expertise span the breadth of the humanities including history, art history, and literature. Papers will address topics ranging from female models of collecting to the Mendozas as patrons and Bosch's work in Mencía de Mendoza's collection to the patron's humanist university project for the city of Valencia.
In addition to providing a forum for intellectual discussion and debate, the conference will also celebrate the artistic richness of Renaissance and contemporary art in Valencia, Spain. Spain's third largest city, Valencia is located on the Mediterranean coast, just a few hours from Barcelona, Madrid and the Balearic Islands. Valencia is home to one of Europe's largest fruit, vegetable and fish markets. Major cultural institutions there are IVAM, the center for contemporary art, and Santiago Calatrava's City of Arts and Sciences.
