Sexualities, Textualities, Art and Music in Early Modern Italy

University College Cork, Ireland, May 18-19, 2007

Keynote Speaker: Suzanne Cusick

Thanks to the work of scholars of civil and canon law, we now have a
fairly nuanced understanding of the complexities of the legal codes
governing sexual behaviour in early modern Italy. This interdisciplinary
conference will explore the integration of sexualities with other aspects
of early modern life and the role of writing, art and music in fashioning,
circulating and even policing early modern Italian sexualities.

Participants include Bonnie Blackburn, Donna Cardamone, Linda Carroll,
Suzanne Cusick, Laura Giannetti, Julia Hairston, Leofranc
Holford-Strevens, Katherine McIver, Guido Ruggiero, and Laurie Stras.
Deborah Roberts (of Musica Secreta and the Tallis Scholars) will perform a
concert of music by 17th-century Italian courtesans and nuns.
