Publications in Preparation

1 / Emmanuel-Philibert de Pingon (1525-1582): A Biography and a Critical Edition

This is a monograph (in two volumes) inspired by the doctoral thesis. The first volume comprises the study of the life of Emmanuel-Philibert de Pingon, and the second volume comprises the critical editions of a selection of his works.


These works include:


1) Pingon's autobiography, Hic Vita Mea (1567), in French and in Latin


2) An epithalamium on the marriage of the Duchess Marguerite de France to the Duke of Savoy, comprised of four poems in celebration of the key political figures present at the marriage: Marguerite de France, Duke Emmanuel Philibert, King Henri II and Philip II of Spain.


3) Thirteen encomiastic odes in celebration of the birth of Duke Charles-Emmanuel I.

4) An elegy on the death of Marguerite de France.


Publication is envisioned by spring of 2024.

2 / Emmanuel-Philibert de Pingon (1525-1582) et son temps

This is a collection of articles inspired by the proceedings of the conference Emmanuel-Philibert de Pingon (1525-1582) et son temps, held at the Trinity Long Room Hub, 15-17 September 2022. Publication is envisioned by autumn of 2024.

3 / Article: 'Renaissance Self-Fashioning in Pingon's Hic Vita Mea (1567)'

I am currently working on an article that considers Pingon's autobiography, Hic Vita Mea (1567), through the lens of Stephen Greenblatt's theory of 'Renaissance self-fashioning'.
