This course examines Renaissance notions of woman in the context of new ideas about Renaissance man and gender relations in Renaissance Italy. On the basis of works written by modern historians as well as reading primary sources, students will explore such issues as whether women had a Renaissance; how women, men, and gender relations were affected by new theories and practices of marriage, by new conceptions of science and sexuality, by the development of premodern capitalism, and by the emergence of new forms of learning and artistic expression.
