Appel à communication : « L’Europe par l’image et en images », Paris, 9-10 juin 2022, date limite le 15 mars 2022

Thinking Europe Visually / L’Europe par l’image et en images. ENS-PSL, 45 rue d’Ulm, 75005 Paris, France, Jun 9–10, 2022. Deadline: Mar 15, 2022. On attribue à tort à Jean Monnet cette phrase qu’il n’a jamais prononcée, au sujet de la construction européenne: “si c’était à refaire, je commencerais par la culture”. L’Europe politique et économique ne serait qu’une coquille vide, à qui il manquerait une âme. L’ambition de ce colloque est d’interroger ce présupposé désabusé...

Conférence : Adriana Concin, « Florence and the Holy Roman Empire in the Sixteenth Century : Material Culture and Artistic Exchange », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 17 janvier 2022, 17h-18h30

During the second half of the sixteenth century, Florentine artistic production and access to it became increasingly sought after across the Holy Roman Empire. An important dynastic connection between the Austrian Habsburg dynasty and the Medici family in 1565 was the marriage of Archduchess Johanna of Austria (1547–1578) to Francesco I de’ Medici (1541–1587). This was a catalytic event that brought the German-speaking dominions of Central Europe into close contact with Florence, its court and...

Parution : J. Fitzmaurice, N. Miller, S. Steen, « Authorizing Early Modern European Women », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

The essays in this volume analyze strategies adopted by contemporary novelists, playwrights, screenwriters, and biographers interested in bringing the stories of early modern women to modern audiences. It also pays attention to the historical women creators themselves, who, be they saints or midwives, visual artists or poets and playwrights, stand out for their roles as active practitioners of their own arts and for their accomplishments as creators. Whether they delivered infants or governed as monarchs,...

Parution : E. Straussman-Pflanzer, O. Tostmann, « By Her Hand. Artemisia Gentileschi and Women Artists in Italy, 1500-1800 », Yale University Press, 2021

A brand new look at the extraordinary accomplishments of early modern Italian women artists. This generously illustrated volume surveys a sweeping range of early modern Italian women artists, exploring their practice and paths to success within the male-dominated art world of the period. New attention to archival documents and detailed technical analyses of the beautiful paintings featured here—ranging from historical subjects to portraits and still lifes—offer new insight into the ways these women worked and...

Parution : Elizabeth Merrill, « Creating Place in Early Modern European Architecture », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

The importance of place—as a unique spatial identity—has been recognized since antiquity. Ancient references to the ‘genius loci’, or spirit of place, evoked not only the location of a distinct atmosphere or environment, but also the protection of this location, and implicitly, its making and construction. This volume examines the concept of place as it relates to architectural production and building knowledge in early modern Europe (1400-1800). The places explored in the book’s ten essays...

Parution : S. Ryan, S.L. Smith, L.K. Skinnebach, « Material Cultures of Devotion in the Age of Reformations », Leuven-Walpole, Peeters Publishers, 2021

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Northern Europe were characterized by enormous religious change. During this period new religious ideas and ideals gradually took shape and materialized in all aspect of religious life, both on a private level as well as in public and liturgical space. The fundamental question of how God could be experienced as present in the world, became – again – the center of lively debate. Lutheran, Calvinist, Roman Catholic and Anglican reformations – to mention...

Parution : K. Botke, H. T. van Veen, « A Cultural Symbiosis. Patrician Art Patronage and Medicean Cultural Politics in Florence (1530-1610) », Leuven University Press, 2021

The prolonged influence of patricians on the cultural and artistic life in Florence. Contrary to general belief, the history of the Florentine patriciate did not end with the establishment of the State of Tuscany under de’ Medici in 1532. Proud and self-confident patricians did not become subservient courtiers overnight, but remained significantly influential for a long period. They retained their urban identity and longstanding family traditions, while acquiring noble titles, estates, and villas at the...

Appel à contribution : « Imago, ius, religio. Religious Iconographies in Illustrated Legal Manuscripts & Printed Books (9th -20th Centuries) », Eikón Imago Journal 2023, date limite le 1 février 2022

It is not unusual to come across religious iconographies in miniatures as well as borders and based-page scenes in illustrated legal manuscripts and printed books (9th-20th centuries) containing canon, civil or local law texts, like the Livres juratoires or municipal and professional statutes. Some of these iconographies, for instance those in the Decretum Gratiani or the Liber Extra, Gregory IX’s decretals, have been accurately examined. However, a comprehensive survey providing a global and chronological investigation...

Parution : M. Damen, K. Overlaet, « Constructing and Representing Territory in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

In recent political and constitutional history, scholars seldom specify how and why they use the concept of territory. In research on state formation processes and nation building, for instance, the term mostly designates an enclosed geographical area ruled by a central government. Inspired by ideas from political geographers, this book explores the layered and constantly changing meanings of territory in late medieval and early modern Europe before cartography and state formation turned boundaries and territories...

Appel à contribution : « Pas de Deux : Couples and Collaboration in Modern Italian Art », Sharon Hecker, Teresa Kittler, date limite le 1er janvier 2022

Pas de Deux: Couples and Collaboration in Modern Italian Art. Edited volume by Sharon Hecker and Teresa Kittler. We welcome proposals from scholars in all fields that explore productive exchanges and reciprocal ways of working by couples in the arts. We seek to analyze the ways in which such emphasis on partnership and dialogue transforms, reconfigures, or allows us to think differently about artistic practice. As a counter to the narrative of the lone male...
