Colloque : Frances A. Yates: Work and Legacy, Londres, The Warburg Institute, le 30 et 31 mai 2019

Frances A. Yates was one of the most original, influential and controversial Warburg scholars of the twentieth century. This conference brings together former students and colleagues of Yates with scholars who work in the many fields to which she made her distinguished contributions.

This conference will explore the academic and intellectual legacy of Dame Frances A. Yates in the diverse areas of scholarship and contemporary culture – from esotericism to architecture – which have been influenced, stimulated and transformed by her work. The two-day colloquium will  bring together academics who knew and worked with Yates, as well as scholars who work in fields to which she made her important contributions, ranging from Renaissance art history and festivals, Shakespeare studies and Giordano Bruno to the history of science, Hermeticism and the “Art of Memory”.  Drawing on the current state of research, the presentations will offer reappraisals of the various influential theses of Frances Yates and their methodological and interdisciplinary innovations, while also charting new venues of academic inquiry into the construction and transmission of knowledge.

Speakers: Sydney Anglo, Lina Bolzoni, Peter Burke, Mary Carruthers, Stephen Clucas, Wouter Hanegraaff, Deborah Harkness, James Knowles, Dilwyn Knox, Ewa Kociszewska, Margaret McGowan, Elizabeth McGrath, Sophie Page, Margaret Shewring, Charlotte Skene Catling, György Szönyi and Bill Sherman.
