DEADLINE, May 31, 2014

The Society for Emblem Studies is in the enviable position of having two venues through which to present the scholarly research of its members at the RSA. One venue is through its emblem studies representative (currently Mara Wade), and the other is through the SES representative to the RSA (currently Tamara Goeglein). Additionally, art historians Juliette Roding (Leiden University) and Tamar Cholcman (Tel Aviv University) are organizing papers on the Emblematic Fn.” Topics are welcome in all area of emblem studies, while the organizers suggest the ones below.


IN HONOR OF THE BRANDENBURG GATE: EMBLEMATIC GATES
To honor the Brandenburg Gate as a landmark of Berlin, this session invites papers that explore emblematic gates and gatekeeping. Gates are points of entry and exit. They control individuals, space, and water. They signal closed space, urban space, and sacred space. They imprison and they secure. They not only regulate flooding, as in a watergate, but they also resonate with political scandal, as in Nixon’s Watergate affair. They decorate, ameliorate, and even exaggerate. They shape the natural world and tame its animals. In short, they are richly emblematic. Papers need not focus exclusively on early modern emblems. Abstracts to Tamara Goeglein, tamara.goeglein@fandm.edu.


CONDUCTING RESEARCH WITH EMBLEMATICA ONLINE: CASE STUDIES
This panel will showcase new research made possible through Emblematica Online, as it continues the expansion of the digital emblem corpus with more books from the University of Illinois and Herzog August Bibliothek, Glasgow University, Utrecht University, and the Getty Research Library and Duke University Library. Most importantly for Renaissance scholars, data for individual emblems from the projects at Utrecht and Glasgow is also becoming searchable in the portal, increasing dramatically the scale of the digital corpus. Case studies highlighting the scholarly use of the portal are welcome. Abstracts to Mara Wade, mwade@illinois.edu.


EMBLEMS IN THE GERMAN-SPEAKING WORLD
This panel examines the history of emblematics in the German context. Panels may focus on book or applied emblems. The emblems studied need not be in the German language. The intellectual focus is on emblematic practices in the German-speaking world. Abstracts to Mara Wade, mwade@illinois.edu.

THE RECEPTION OF GERMAN EMBLEM BOOKS OUTSIDE OF GERMANY
German emblem books were read, translated, and otherwise received throughout Europe. Examples of the reception elsewhere in Europe of emblem books printed in German-speaking lands in any language (German, Latin, etc.) contributes to the scholarship of the geographical dissemination of early modern print culture. Abstracts to Mara Wade, mwade@illinois.edu.

ROUND TABLE: EMBLEM BOOK COLLECTIONS IN GERMAN-SPEAKING LANDS, SCANDINAVIA, THE NETHERLANDS, AND CENTRAL EUROPE
Members of SES are frequently well informed about emblem book collections in Europe that are not well known to others scholars. The Berlin conference offers the opportunity to highlight these collections. This roundtable focuses on important collections in Central Europe that should become better known. Abstracts to Mara Wade, mwade@illinois.edu.


EMBLEMFN: EMBLEMS AS FOOTNOTES IN VISUAL CONTEXT

At the turn of the 17th century, the textual paradigms of the traditional commentary evolved into the more modern and academic concept of the "Footnote." Such, for example, are Richard White's eleven books on the history of Britain, written between 1597 and 1607. The books contain a text with actual endnotes, added in order to acknowledge the diversity of the sources used, to quote them for the reader’s benefit, and to refute critics.
We invite papers that aim to explore the use of emblems, or of emblematic images, within a broader visual context, as a kind of “footnote”, being used in accordance with the modern concept of the “footnote”, as defined by a dictionary as “an explanatory or documenting note or comment at the bottom of a page, referring to a specific part of the text on the page.” For example, when used at the foot of a triumphal ephemeral arch in Triumphal Entries, emblems were meant not only to address the learned, but also to refer to the designer’s true views, explanations, and clarifications, that he could not include in the ‘body’ of the monument.
Like the textual footnote, a reference to an emblem, or to an emblematic figure within broader visual contexts, addressed only the learned viewers, inviting them to decipher another layer of meaning concealed from the laymen. Such emblems could have been understood by those familiar with emblematic tradition, who could have inferred to the origin of the Emblem and its meaning, thus transforming the emblem into a factual “footnote”, denoting it a tool of the professional educated learned, or in other words - the academician.
