Parution : Karl A.E. Enenkel, Anita Traninger, « The Figure of the Nymph in Early Modern Culture », Brill, mars 2018.

  Throughout the early modern period, the nymph remained a powerful figure that inspired and informed the cultural imagination in many different ways. Far from being merely a symbol of the classical legacy, the nymph was invested with a surprisingly broad range of meanings. Working on the basis of these assumptions, and thus challenging Aby Warburg’s famous reflections on the nympha that both portrayed her as cultural archetype and reduced her to a marginal figure,...

Appel à publication : « Emotions, Art, and Religion in Europe, Africa, and the Americas, c. 1400–1800 », date limite le 30 mars 2018

The “emotional turn” has prompted numerous studies on the history of emotions in the medieval and early modern periods.
