Description

A trend in Christine de Pizan scholarship has been to emphasize her status as a writer of social commentary and as a moralist; this trend tends to deemphasize the importance Christine attributes to art, beauty, and artistic creation. This session of papers will offer a corrective by taking a broad approach to Christine de Pizan’s appreciation of the arts and to the principles of aesthetics, explicit or implicit, that emerge from her works, including her poetics, her views on the visual and performing arts, and her aesthetics.
