Call for Papers

Date: February 15, 2020

The representation of nakedness, total or partial, in the picaresque and celestinesque literature and its sequels, as well as in paintings, movies, etc. In a period in which the "savage" was described as naked, being naked in Spain may have had complex meanings beyond those of class and gender (poverty, eroticism, innocence, etc.).

This panel will occur at the inaugural meeting of CELPYC: Círculo de Estudios de la Literatura Picaresca y Celestinesca, taking palce at the City College University of New York, New York, 3-5 June 2020.
