Renaissance Itineraries: Tracing Spaces and Places in the Early Modern World

 

Call for papers here (submission until 15 January 2020, to Gottskálk Jensson, gthj@hi.is).

 

Renaissance Itineraries is the fifth conference of the Nordic Network for Renaissance Studies. Being itself a nexus of interconnected scholars circumscribed by geographical space, the network has chosen as a focus for its next conference the theme of itineraries, as explored through early modern art, music, literature, architecture and science. An itinerary involves movement from one place to another (or several others), and we use the term here to refer both to literal travel in the world and to more imaginative and imaginary journeys. The great minds of the Renaissance were deeply engaged in preparing itineraries, visiting the destinations included in them and reflecting on the experiences they gave rise to: contemporary scholars continue in their footsteps. We hope to receive proposals for papers which show how Renaissance itineraries have taken material form, imprinted themselves on memory, appealed to the senses, moved the emotions, triggered inventions and inspired ideas.
