CFP: I International Congress of the CELPYC (3rd-5th of June 2020, The City College University of New York)

In March 2019 I announced the establishment of a new professional association of celestinesque interest, the Círculo de Estudios de la Literatura Picaresca y Celestinesca (CELPYC).

Now it is organising its first international congress for June 2020, at the City College University of New York, and has published a call for papers open to everyone interested in Celestina and the picaresque. Proposals for individual papers, panels and roundtables can be sent via the on-line form until the 1st of March 2020.

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!
