We invite abstracts for a Special Issue of Arts, titled “Flemish Art: Past and Present.” The title of this issue is intentionally broad.

Quand nous contemplons le visage d’une personne, un paysage d’émotions s’offre à nous : nous entrons spontanément en résonance avec autrui. L’empathie est cette résonance qui se situe sur le plan émotionnel, mais aussi cognitif : à la fois psychique et biologique, ce phénomène qui nous relie les uns aux autres a joué un rôle majeur dans l’histoire de l’évolution. Dans son ouvrage L’âge de l’empathie, Frans de Waal souligne combien la survie de nombreuses espèces d’animaux...

Appel à publication : « Art and Death in the Netherlands », Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art, vol 72, 2021, date limite le 15 avril

In premodern times, death was a more visible phenomenon than now, due to high mortality rates, but also to the fact that dying and death and the subsequent phases of deposition, bereavement and remembrance – more so than today – were collectively experienced, publicly performed, and commemorated in enduring monuments. Remembrance was held to extend into perpetuity, on personal grounds of love and affection, and for political and religious reasons, the latter normatively being related...

This conference is concerned with the agency and life of material objects and evolves around the investigation of two interlaced objectives. First, the project will shed light on understudied aspects of medieval visual culture, focusing in particular on the agency of images and material objects. Second, it will provide new cutting-edge theoretical reflections and methodologies concerning the study of material agency and “living images” today. We argue that the cultural use of and interaction with...
