Workshop: La imagen de las reinas portuguesas y españolas

Los retratos de las reinas portuguesas o de las reinas españolas representaban las sutilezas de su estado a través de su vestimenta, joyas, etc… así como de motios más amplios relacionados con la representación de circunstancias específicas como son las del ceremonial de cada corte. Consecuentemente, las reinas de las diferentes dinastías se representaban de modo correlativamente diferente. Un estudio comparativo diacrónico permite observar la evolución de invariantes y variaciones de la representación, lo que aporta materiales significativos para la comprensión sistemática del sentido y el valor histórico cultural de la retratística real ibérica en el marco más general del estudio de las formas de la reprsentción occidental. Dentro del Programa MOSTRA ESPANHA 2019 y en colaboración con el Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, se presenta, bajo el comité científico formado por Annemarie Jordan y Mercedes LLorente, un simposio hispanoluso de historia del arte que a partir de diferentes estudios sobre los retratos de las reinas españoles y portuguesas discute y analiza la construcción y evolución de
la representación real del siglo XVI a la primera mitad del siglo XVII mediante la participación de expertos en la materia.

Call for Book Proposals

CALL FOR BOOK PROPOSALS: New Series – Vernon Press Series in Classical Studies

Vernon Press invites proposals on the history, literature, art, philosophy, political or social structures, religion, languages, or archaeology of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations for its new Series in Classical Studies.

The classics are the earliest branch of the humanities, with a long history of scholarly value, but the field continues to evolve. The past two decades have seen exciting developments in key research areas, especially material culture, reception studies and gender studies. The books in this series will examine such growth areas, while also being open to more traditional approaches.

Comprising edited volumes, co-authored books and single-author monographs, the series will be useful for senior researchers, scholars and practitioners with an interest in this field of study, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students.

To receive more information about submitting a proposal or to discuss your idea, please contact James McGovern: james.mcgovern@vernonpress.com
