The Renaissance and Contemporary Critical Theory

This session asks the question, can the present responsibly inform the
past ? Renaissance studies have, in general, long resisted the desire to
invoke such important twentieth-century theorists as Derrida, Lacan and
Deleuze (just to name a few), in their discussion of the fifteenth and
sixteenth centuries. This tendency is perhaps most pronounced in the
field of art history, where social history, in general, and issues of
patronage, in particular, has informed much of the scholarship in the
field. Granted, early investigations such as Freud’s study of Leonardo
da Vinci and his analysis of Michelangelo’s Moses gave later historians
good reason to question “modern” methodology as it applied to the past.
Is it now time, however, to re-examine the role of post-Renaissance
paradigms in the study of the Renaissance itself ? This session welcomes
papers that address (in either a theoretical or applied manner) the
incorporation of contemporary thought into their early modern
enquiries. Papers from the field of art history are particularly
relevant, but presentations from other fields will also be most

Please send a 150 word abstract and a copy of your CV to Paula Carabell.
