7-10 May 2009 St. John's University in Manhattan, NY. 2009 American Association of Italian Studies (AAIS) Conference.
This session invites papers revisiting the Italian Renaissance. Participants may discuss (among other topics) the (dialectical) relationship between imitation and innovation or tradition and creativity in Italian Renaissance Literature. Questions of authorship, textuality, literary borrowings, and influence can be examined along with the issue of genre as a narrative form. Papers focusing on chivalric romances, genre debates,
"contamination" of genres, and the work of Ariosto are particularly welcome.
