Padua 2010-04-07: The university in the Ren.

Received via the STUDIUM email distribution list:
On 2010-04-07 Padua will see the conference The University in the Renaissance.
Here is some information (and the programme):
This one-day conference intends to investigate the status of universities in early modern Europe, with particular
references to Italian universities and their international relations. A Studium such as Padua was to all intents and
purposes a universitas scholarium, a legal corporation of scholars with its own statutes, which for a long time enjoyed a
degree of autonomy even in complex and mutable circumstances. It traditionally welcomed foreign students, and the
various nations enjoyed an independent status and could have representatives in the University’s executive council. The
conference explores the status of the institution and its bearing on the circulation of ideas and books. Anglo-Italian
relations are highlighted in the various papers, which discuss itinerant scholars, the statutes and rituals of Italian
universities, and the role of the universities in contemporary politics.
