Classicism, Humanism, and Modernity: Poggio Bracciolini’s Legacy in Florence and Beyond

The Italian Studies Department at Bryn Mawr College (in collaboration with David Cast, History of Art, and Eric Pumroy, Head of Special Collections) presents a two-day symposium designed to foster interdisciplinary dialogue around the legacy of Italian Humanist Poggio Bracciolini, who is important both for his rediscovery of classical texts and his design of a new script, later the model for the first printed books. This conference, in memory of Phyllis Goodhart Gordan, a BMC alumna of 1935, will be concerned with all of Poggio Bracciolini’s activities and will bring to campus distinguished scholars in different fields (Italian Literature, Comparative Literature, Philology, Paleography, Latin and Greek Literature, History, and Intellectual History).
