Boccaccio at 700: The 2013 CEMERS Conference
In honor of the 700th anniversary of Boccaccio’s birth, the 2013 CEMERS conference will provide an interdisciplinary forum in which to rethink all aspects of this last (but not necessarily least) of Italy’s three crowning writers, in order to re-contextualize and revitalize his place in history, as well as in the literary pantheon.
