Appel à contribution : « The Materiality of Sacred Textiles in Europe », Padoue, Università degli Studi di Padova, 21-22 novembre 2024, date limite le 27 juillet 2024

Since Antiquity, textiles have played a key role in the religious sphere. They formed part of ritual trappings and were used in funerary ceremonials as garments for the deceased or furnishings within churches and shrines, serving the twofold purpose of wrapping bodies and articulating, dividing, and concealing/revealing spaces and objects. Additionally, they were offered as gifts to the divinities or were employed to dress religious images, thus becoming connectors between the sacred and the profane,...

Appel à contribution : « Catholicism in Transit », en ligne, 20 septembre 2024, date limite le 31 juillet 2024

This workshop aims to generate discussion on how Catholicism moved in the early modern world. The social, cultural, religious, and intellectual transformations of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries changed the ways that Catholicism was lived and experienced. Developments in communication transformed practices of idea circulation and exchange, the redrawing of national and confessional lines influenced the movement of Catholic people across them, and missionary efforts transformed Catholicism into the first global religion. We understand mobility...

Appel à contribution : « Textile Ecologies », en ligne, 5-7 février 2025, date limite le 15 juillet 2024

Among the artifacts crafted by humankind, textiles have always held a uniquely interdependent relationship with the environment. Textiles derive from vegetal (hemp, raffia, ramie, cotton, or bark cloth), animal (wool, silk) and even mineral origins (as in the case of asbestos fibers). The production of textiles has depended upon access to and the processing of raw materials, while cloth manufacturing has reshaped entire landscapes from the transplantation of mulberry trees for sericulture to the mounds...

Appel à contribution : « Baroque Times: The Table’s Scenography », Vila Nova de Foz Côa, 14-16 novembre 2024, date limite le 15 juillet 2024

When discussing the table or the act of being at the table, our immediate thoughts go to the act of eating, the company present, and the food to be shared. However, the table transcends its practical function to become a richly layered symbol, both materially and conceptually, embodying sociability in myriad ways throughout history. During the modern era (17th-18th centuries), the table’s significance unfolded across diverse contexts and environments, from the opulent settings of palaces...

Appel à contribution : « Exchanges, Mobility and Collaborations », Besançon, Université de Franche-Comté, 22 novembre 2024, date limite le 30 juin 2024

Silk has been approached in recent historiography as a material whose production and consumption played a crucial role in the formation of the modern world, notably due to the multiplicity and complexity of the exchanges this precious fibre gave rise to. The topic of Franco-Italian relations around silk brings us to explore the multi-faceted issues — socio-economic, political, environmental, artistic and cultural — that underlie these exchanges. These relations between two neighbouring spaces, among the...
