Call for Papers: Renaissance Royal Weddings and Cultural Production

The conference ‘Renaissance Royal Weddings & Cultural Production’ seeks to reconsider cultural output for/about royal weddings which took place between c.1400 and c. 1600, as an important source for contemporary thought about monarchy and ruling families/dynasties. It will study the royal wedding as a nexus of ideas, texts, objects and performances about the Crown. It will ask how the Renaissance itself affected the culture of royal weddings, with its classicising, Italianate focus. The conference welcomes papers from scholars working in Renaissance and neo-Latin literature, art history, court studies, intellectual and political history. Papers on cultural production for royal weddings outside Latin Europe are also warmly welcomed.

Please submit 200-500 word abstracts of paper proposals to by 1st October, 2017. The Jagiellonians Project is able to cover reasonable travel and accommodation costs for all participants presenting a paper.

The conference is being organised under the auspices of the European Research Council funded project Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory & Identity led by Dr Natalia Nowakowska.
