520    "Renaissance Futurities considers the intersections 
       between artistic rebirth, the new science, and European 
       imperialism in the global early modern world. Charlene 
       Villaseñor Black and Mari-Tere lvarez take as inspiration 
       the work of Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci (1452-
       1519), prolific artist and inventor, and other polymaths 
       such as philosopher Giulio "Delminio" Camillo (1480-1544),
       physician and naturalist Francisco Hernández de Toledo 
       (1514-1587), and writer Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616). 
       This concern with futurity is inspired by the Renaissance 
       itself, a period defined by visions of the future, as well
       as by recent theorizing of temporality in Renaissance and 
       Queer Studies. This transdisciplinary volume is at the 
       cutting edge of the humanities, medical humanities, 
       scientific discovery, and avant-garde artistic expression"
