REVISITING THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE: CASE STUDIES
This session invites papers revisiting the Italian Renaissance.
Participants may discuss (among other topics) the (dialectical)
relationship between imitation and innovation or tradition and creativity
in Italian Renaissance Literature. Questions of authorship, textuality,
literary borrowings, and influence can be examined along with the issue
of genre as a narrative form. Papers focusing on chivalric romances,
genre debates, "contamination" of genres, and the work of Ariosto are
particularly welcome.

Please send a 200 words abstract by Jan. 2, 2009.

Organizer: Slavica Grujicic, University of Toronto
