CFP: New Perspectives on Italian Art, Italian Art Society sponsored session, Renaissance Society of America 67th Annual Meeting, deadline 13 July 2020

This is a sponsored session by the Italian Art Society for the Renaissance Society of America 67th Annual Meeting in Dublin, Ireland on 7–10 April 2021.

This session aims to create a space for emerging scholars (recent Ph.D.s or Ph.D. candidates) of Italian art to present their work. Proposals on any area of Italian early modern art (1300-1600) are welcome. We are particularly interested in scholars working in new methodologies, new areas of study, or innovative approaches to more traditional areas of Renaissance studies. The intention is to provide new scholars a forum to present their ideas and methods and an opportunity to receive constructive feedback from senior scholars who will serve as respondents.
