CMRS Lecture

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.

Funding for this event is provided by the Armand Hammer Endowment for the UCLA Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies.
