Muslims and Islam in the early modern Italian and Mediterranean Worlds
I Tatti Studies in the Italian Renaissance is pleased to announce a call for articles that explore the presence of "Muslims and Islam in the early modern Italian and Mediterranean Worlds." Articles should address the transmission and circulation of ideas, objects, and people during the Renaissance, into and beyond the Italian peninsula. We are especially interested in essays that challenge current disciplinary boundaries while providing new interpretations of and evidence for cross-cultural interactions between Muslims and other religious and ethnic groups. Essays should be between 7000-9000 words, including footnotes. The deadline for submission is January 31, 2014; selected essays will appear in the May 2015 issue of I Tatti Studies.
The journal will continue to consider and encourage submissions of individual essays exploring any aspect of the Italian Renaissance. I Tatti Studies maintains a double-blind review process and commits to reviewing essays within six months. For author information and for online submission, please click here. For other inquiries, please email Prof. Jane Tylus at jane.tylus[at]nyu.edu.
Volume 16 (2013) of I Tatti Studies will appear this November, and all individual members of the Renaissance Society of America will recieve free online access. It opens with four "state of the field" essays by senior scholars in theatre, women's studies, art history, and social history, and features clusters on the experience of the Renaissance street, Latinity and the vernacular, and the material culture of the Italian signori.
