Representing the Sack of Rome, RSA 2011, Montreal, March 24-26 (deadline extension)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 5:07pm
Jessica Goethals, New York University; Aimee Ng, Columbia University

André Chastel famously argued that Italian artists greeted the 1527 Sack of Rome with silence and self-censorship. And yet in other arenas we find a chorus of voices attempting to define, decipher, register, and comprehend the fall of Rome and its individual and collective impact. This session will examine representations of the Sack and its aftermath in all historical and cultural mediums and from all national origins. Projects that examine predictions of the Sack are also welcome. This session will attempt to challenge the idea that the Sack was the end of the Renaissance by looking at the event as a stimulus for new and often self-aware cultural production or revitalization.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief cv by May 18th.
