Work in Progress

Professor Klestinec is currently working on two projects. The first is a study of Lucrezia Marinella’s On the Nobility and Excellence of Women and the Defects and Vices of Men (1600, 1601) and her use of prudence, the practical intellect, and Aristotle’s Ethics (book 6) to imagine a new, public woman in the Renaissance. The second is a project on the culture of reprint for sixteenth-century surgery texts that examines the intersection of surgery texts, print circulation, and the history of the book. In conjunction with this, Professor Klestinec is currently an Altman fellow at the Humanities Center at Miami.
