Thanks to the work of scholars of civil and canon law, we now have a fairly nuanced understanding of the complexities of the legal codes governing sexual behaviour in early modern Italy. This interdisciplinary conference will explore the integration of sexualities with other aspects of early modern life and the role of writing, art and music in fashioning, circulating and even policing early modern Italian sexualities. The conference will be held at University College Cork, Ireland from 18-19 May 2007.
I seek proposals for 20-minute papers on early modern Italian sexualities, especially in relation to literature and art, and particularly for papers relating to female-female erotic practices and/or that deal with the 'erotic inheritance' from previous centuries.
Please send abstracts via email (either in the body of an email or as an attachment) to Melanie Marshall, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 7 February 2007.
