Ferrara Cultural Change from Boiardo to Tasso In the context of the centenary anniversaries of the deaths of Boiardo (d. 1494) and Tasso (d. 1595), this conference will consider the evolution of Ferrarese culture in the dramatic period between the late 15th and end of the 16th centuries. During this period of extraordinary ferment in Italy and in Europe, generally, Ferrara represents one of the most interesting cases of cultural accomplishment . Literature (both romance epic and lyric poetry), musical composition , court society, military technology, religious dissent, gender identity, and artistic patronage are among the domains in which significant cultural transformation is taking place. Funds are available to subsidize travel expenses for members of the Center for Renaissance Studies consortium.

Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies and University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee The Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies, Northwestern University, and the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee present Mémoires secrets de Bachaumont February 10-11, 1995. This conference will explore connections between high and low culture by focusing on a celebrated example, the Mémoires secrets de Bachaumont. This series of gossipy newsletters, published in 36 volumes , is an essential source for the history of the French Enlightenment and the last decades of the Old Regime. It is also a crucial text for the development of a journalism interested not only in the great events of public life but in the details of private life. As such, it contributes to the emergence of modern notions of scandal and celebrity, and to a new definition of public and private spheres. 116 Funds are available to subsidize travel expenses for members of the Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium.
