Conférence : Stephen G. Perkinson, « Memento mori. Imagery and the Limits of the Self in Late Medieval Europe », Londres, The Courtauld Institute et en ligne, 26 mai 2022, 17h30

Objects bearing memento mori themes were abundant in Europe in the decades immediately around the year 1500. The material properties of these objects – the matter from which they were formed, the apparent care or negligence with which they were fashioned, and the ways their physical condition betrays signs of heavy use or careful conservation – can point us toward a better understanding of the diversity of interests that inspired their creation and use. These motivations range...

Appel à contribution : « Fragmented Illuminations », Victoria and Albert Museum, juillet 2022, date limite le 6 mars 2022

With over 2,000 manuscript cuttings, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London holds one of the largest collections of this kind in the world.

They vary in size, from small border snippets and initials to full leaves and, though they have come largely from choirbooks, other types...

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 communication : « Framing the multimodality of early modern images : agency, performance and medialogy to study artefacts », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 27 juillet 2021

Understanding paintings and sculptures as a « dispositif » (De Certeau, Agamben) has become a new research approach in the Humanities in recent years. Visual anthropology  and cognition are nowadays commonly used to explore how early modern images work within a process of production, mediation and reception (Freedberg & Gallese ; Belting). However, Visual semiology, Information and Communication Sciences are yet to be invested in a fruitful medialogy that could provide a bridge between disciplines. Studying interpersonal and...

Colloque : « Giocare tra medioevo ed età moderna. Modelli etici ed estetici per l’Europa », Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, Trévise, 17 et 18 novembre 2017

Des études récentes sur l’histoire de la « ludicità » dans l’espace européen ont montré dans quelle mesure ‘le jouer’ en tant qu’acte de parole et d’image représente un observatoire privilégiée permettant de s’interroger sur des questions primordiales dont la portée intellectuelle, politique et sociale a été largement sous-estimée par les historiens. Cette rencontre, organisée par la Fondazione Benetton Studi e Ricerche, le Centre de recherche historique (CRH, EHESS) et l’University College Dublin se propose de fournir...

Gender and Emotion  Gender and Medieval Studies Conference 2016  The University of Hull  6–8 January, 2016 The grief-stricken faces at Edward’s deathbed in the Bayeux Tapestry; the ambiguous ‘ofermod’ in The Battle of Maldon; the body-crumpling anguish of the Virgin witnessing the Man of Sorrows; the mirth of the Green Knight; the apoplectic anger of the mystery plays’ Herod and the visceral visionary experiences of Margery of Kempe all testify to the ways in which the medieval world sought...
