We are currently soliciting essays for I Tatti Studies in the Italian Renaissance for a forthcoming cluster called "Renaissance Modernities." We welcome submissions in Italian or English of 6,000-10,000 words (including notes) that address the reappearance, reconfiguration, appropriation or translation of Renaissance Italian art, literature, philosophy, music, religious practice, and intellectual life in the modern or post-modern era. Essays focusing on historiography and modern or contemporary (re)interpretations of the Renaissance are also eligible.
The artwork’s aura wasn’t the only thing complicated by the age of mechanical reproduction. The creative development of artists themselves was increasingly shaped and sustained indirectly, in the duplication and transmission of artistic images, methods, and motivations across vast distances, cultural divides, and languages. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw both a concentration of cultural power in a few key locations (Paris and New York primarily) and an acceleration of exchange and distribution of material to and from these sites.
