Christine de Pizan and the Five Senses (Listed under “Sessions of Papers”)

Throughout Christine’s corpus, all five senses play strategically into the expression of her message. From the scent of spring flowers in lyric poetry, to the sounds of battle in her works on war, to detailed and even striking visual imagery, the experiences she depicts are often powerfully enhanced by sensorial elements. This topic builds upon current interest in the material culture surrounding Christine’s oeuvre and lends itself to interdisciplinary approaches.

Digital Humanities, Lyric Poetry, Textual Studies in Christine de Pizan: A Roundtable Festschrift in Honor of James Laidlaw (Listed under “Roundtables”)

James Laidlaw is one of the world’s most preeminent scholars of Christine de Pizan. He has published numerous seminal studies on the manuscript tradition and other aspects of Christine’s works, and is director of the far-reaching, innovative, and invaluable project, Christine de Pizan: The Making of the Queen’s Manuscript. This session will honor Professor Laidlaw with papers inspired by his extraordinary contribution to Christine studies.
