Allegory: States of the Art

This panel will explore approaches, old and new, to early modern allegory, welcoming a wide range of national, historical, and aesthetic instances. Potential topics might include (among others): allegory and the making of states (Venetian or otherwise); allegory and the idea of the human (or non-human); time, space, and allegory; allegory and the baroque; allegory: postmodern and/or early modern; allegory and economy; religious allegory.

Abstracts and a brief bio/cv due by May 10. A longer initial abstract will work but final abstracts accepted for the panel must be 150 words.
