My Aretino and Titian’s Aretino
Los Angeles , CA 90095 United States + Google Map
A talk by Raymond Waddington, emeritus professor at UC Davis: How an English professor can become an Aretino authority. Why Titian and Aretino are inseparable. And why contexts are essential.
Professor Waddington has published five books, over seventy articles, and co-edited three books. Aretino’s Satyr (2004) received the MLA’s Scaglione Prize for Italian Studies, and was translated into Italian (2009). It was followed by Pietro Aretino: Subverting the System in Renaissance Italy (2013), and Titian’s Aretino (2018). He has received awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
