Casting the Real - Reproduction, Translation and Interpretation in Petrach's Time

Casting the Real

Thursday 4 May 2017, 5.30PM to 5 May 2017

In keeping with Dominic Olariu’s La genèse de la représentation ressemblante de l’homme. Reconsidérations du portrait à partir du XIIIe siècle (Bern 2014), this international workshop looks at the the ways fourteenth-century poets, intellectuals, doctors, and artists engaged with issues of translation, casting, embalming, and quantification. It explores the contaminations between ideas of measuring, judging, and representation while considering the similarities between concepts of truth, virtue, and likeness.

Programme and booking information available.

Location: K/159, King's Manor, University of York
