CFP: Renaissance Medals

 

Proposals are invited for a proposed session (or sessions) dedicated to Renaissance medals to be held at the annual Renaissance Society of America meeting in Toronto, 17-19 March 2019. 

 

As small-scale sculpted objects often allied with but distinct from coins, Renaissance medals circulated widely during the early modern period. In addition to the portraits that traditionally appeared on the obverse of the objects, medals bore a wide range of texts and imagery including original inventions as well as those drawn from allegory, heraldry, or narrative. 

 

All proposals are welcome, but papers which deal with imagery on medals, and the political and social aspects of the creation, collection, and exchange of these objects are particularly encouraged. 

 

Please submit proposals to Arne Flaten [arflaten@bsu.edu] and/or Tanja Jones [tljones@as.ua.edu] by 31 July 2018.
