Boccaccio and Women
We invite proposals for articles about Boccaccio and Women. Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.
It is not only about medieval gender studies, but in a broad perspective about debating the role of women in the work of Giovanni Boccaccio:
- e.g. the female members of the Brigata and the female characters in the Decameron,
- the biographies of famous women in De mulieribus claris,
- women or subjects like Fiammetta/Maria d’Aquino,
- misogyny/love discourse in Corbaccio,
- Biancifiore in Filocolo,
- Emilia in Teseida or
- Cressida in Filostrato,
- the nymphs in La caccia di Diana and Ninfale fiesolano,
- love poetry in the Rime etc.
The texts will be published as a special journal issue of Romanische Studien, a new German reviewed Online-Journal of Romance Studies. Articles may be published in English, German, Italian and any other of the Romance languages.
