This event is open to specialists in Golden Age drama and performing arts specialists that would like to read a 20-minute paper on any of the following characters: Celestina, don Quijote, don Juan, Segismundo, Laurencia y Pedro Crespo. Celestina being one of them, we thaought this call for papers might be of interest for our fellow celestinistas.
In it, celestinesque scholars will find information on the known editions of the Italian translation of Celestina by Alphonso Hordognez, with or without known surviving copies, and on their current location. This catalogue identifies ghost editions and potentially lost editions, and provides extensive bibliographical information on the editorial history of Celestina in Italian as well.
This research dates from 2012 and my ideas on the topic might have changed since then, but it should still be up-to-date regarding the number of known copies and their location, although some of the links might be outdated. I aim to complete this catalogue some time with a preliminary study on the editorial history of Celestina in Italy and more detailed informations on the particular editions, however, I felt that it was a shame to keep this useful research tool to myself for so long. Luckily, CORE offers the opportunity to share unpublished work in a quotable way. So, please, take this as a late-Christmas present and feel free to use my catalogue for your research.
Comments Off on My resources: Revised catalogue of the editions of the Italian translation of Celestina
With a special dossier on the configuration and dissemination of the Segunda Celestina by Feliciano de Silva, coordinated by Juan Pablo Mauricio García Álvarez (Universidad de Guadalajara). And articles on some of the most recurring celestinesque research topics: authorship, eroticism, and editorial history of Celestina, among others.
The provisional programme of the 19th WISPS Annual Conference “From Celestina to Celestina’s House: Archetypes Old and New in Hispanic and Luso-Afro-Brazilian Cultures” (2nd-3rd November 2018, University of London) is now available at the registration website.
On Monday, an updated version will be uploaded, but this first one creates enough anticipation on its own.
Unexpectedly, there only is one session exclusively devoted to Celestina, but, it couldn’t be any other way, the keynote lecture by Dorothy Severin deals with Celestina as well. The other sessions are devoted to male and female literary archetypes, of all times and the whole Luso-Hispanic world, but I am particularly curious about the paper by Lesley Twomey “Joanna of Castile’s Prayer Book: Books of Hours and the Fashioning of Temporal Power”.
If you are in London at the beginning of November, and you are interested in Celestina, you cannot miss this conference!

It is conference time and I am happy to announce that the VII Congreso Internacional de la SEMYR (4th-6th September 2018, Salamanca) will be hosting a whole session on Celestina, scheduled for the 5th September, at 16:00. The relevant papers are:
Ottavio Di Camillo, “De genealogia Celestinae o Celestina antes de la Celestina“
Álvaro Piquero, “Imágenes del onanismo en la literatura hispánica medieval: de la lírica popular a La Celestina“
Amaranta Saguar García, “Para el estudio de las ediciones ilustradas de Celestina: herramientas y estándares digitales para la recopilación, la ordenación, la clasificación, la historia y el tratamiento de las xilografías de las ediciones antiguas de Celestina. Un acercamiento”
In a different session (6th September, 09:00), Laura Mier will be talking about “La representación del amor: de La Celestina a Don Perlimplín“, which also is of celestinesque interest.
Moreover, this year’s WISPS Annual Conference (2nd-3rd November 2018, University of London) celebrates its twentieth anniversary with a homage to the renowned celestinista Dorothy Severin. The special topic of the conference is “From Celestina to Celestina’s House: Archetypes Old and New in Hispanic and Luso-Afro-Brazilian Cultures”, so that there will be a lot of papers on Celestina. I cannot wait to see the programme!
