Appel à contribution : « The Virgin and the City. Urban Marian Spaces in Late Medieval Europe », en ligne, 9-14 mai 2022, date limite le 1er septembre 2021

The session wishes to analyze the Marian presence in Late Medieval European cities. The scholarly importance of the session lies in understanding how the Virgin became a part of urban landscapes and how the political and civic powers enhanced religious place‐making practices. How was the Mother of God accommodated and exhibited in civic space? What does Marian images’ location reveal about the relationship between devotion and public places? Why did the Virgin become the guarantor...

Appel à communication : « Revisiting Collecting Antiquities », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 6 août 2021

The significance of owning and displaying antiquities for the Renaissance collector has never been doubted and the importance of surviving antique works of art for both collectors and artists is well understood. Recent research has shown that the meaning of these works for collectors, that underpinned their acquisition and display, is more nuanced than previously thought, often reflecting market forces as much as the reputation or scholarship of the individual owner. In light of the...

Parution : Rinaldo F. Canalis, Massimo Ciavolella (dir.), « Disease and Disability in Medieval and Early Modern Art and Literature », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Humanity has always shown a keen interest in the pathological, ranging from a morbid fascination with ‘monsters’ and deformities to a genuine compassion for the ill and suffering. Medieval and early modern people were no exception, expressing their emotional response to disease in both literary works and, to a somewhat lesser extent, in the plastic arts. Consequently, it becomes necessary to ask what motivated writers and artists to choose an illness or a disability and...

Appel à contribution : Representing Islands and Water in Early Modern Cartography, RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 13 août 2021

The Mediterranean islands have occupied, at least since antiquity, a central position within the political and economic imperatives of numerous civilizations. These military powers will establish various forms of maritime control over the Mediterranean space. From the Minoans to the Genoese and Venetian Thalassocracies, as well as the Ottoman Empire, the Mediterranean Sea became the scene of countless battles for control of its islands and surrounding waters (even still today). When thought as a separate...

Appel à communication : « Facciati Dipinti e Parlante: New Investigations of the Frescoed Façade in Italy », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 1er août 2021

Though its remains are vanishing rapidly, the frescoed façade tradition of the Italian peninsula has enjoyed a recent resurgence in interest among scholars for the variety and ingenuity these painted faces revealed. From desires to root structures in antiquity to simply dressing one’s dwelling to make a humble space more imposing or on trend, these facades tell their own stories of artistic innovation, symbolic meaning, and visual presence among the bustling streets of many Italian...

Appel à contribution : Dark Jokes and Laughing Artists: Early Modern Art and Humor, RSA, Dublin, date limite le 4 août 2021

This panel focuses on humor and art in the years 1450-1670. Humor relies on dialogue: born from the collision and unexpected juxtaposition of people or ideas. For art historians, the question of humour is thus a conundrum. With context obscured by historical distance, how exactly do we recover and understand a humorous tone? Such questions are especially pertinent for objects with darker subjects, where violence coexists alongside potential laughter. How does the ambiguity of humor...
