Two months after a wonderful conference in Rome we are delighted to announce that the first reports have now started to circulate:
Last week saw the publication of Tara Auty’s (University of Western Australia) report that appeared as part of ‘Cerae. An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies’. You can read Tara’s account here: https://ceraejournal.com/2016/07/04/economics-of-poetry-conference-rome-april-28-30-2016/
This Tuesday another report in German, authored by Christan Peters (University of Münster), was sent around on HSozKult, the largest German newsletter in the humanities:
The organizers of ‘Economics of Poetry’ would like to thank Tara and Christian for their efforts and their contribution to promote the results of the conference to a wide audience.
In this regard we are also happy that the first papers for the conference’s proceedings are currently reaching the editors. For the book a contract has been signed with Peter Lang at Oxford, where it will appear as part of the “Court Cultures of the Middle Ages and Renaissance” series. We are confident to have the book out within a year’s time after the conference and will keep you posted on the progress.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank once more all the speakers and guests who contributed in making ‘Economics of Poetry’ an inspiring event for all of us.
