Representing Space in the Renaissance
A one-day postgraduate conference at the University of Warwick (UK)
28th July 2005
Drawing on and partaking of the recent ‘spatial turn’ in the humanities and social sciences, this interdisciplinary conference addresses the uses and meanings of space in a variety of renaissance texts. Graduate speakers from the universities of Delaware, London, Paris, Sydney, Warwick, York and Zagreb will explore the ways in which a range of early modern literary and visual media incorporate space into their representational strategies and, in turn, what their mobilisation of spatial motifs reveals about broader cultural configurations and concerns.
The conference forms part of the Warburg Institute – University of Warwick Research Training Programme: Resources and Techniques for the Study of Renaissance and Early Modern Culture, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Registration is free.
