Appel à articles : “Settling Sophonisba Rediscovering a lost figure in the early modern European imagination”, Nordic Journal of Renaissance Studies, date limite le 1er novembre 2021

Résumé Early modern European dramatists, poets, and painters took a striking interest in the Carthaginian noblewoman Sophonisba (c.235-203 BC) who chose to poison herself to avoid the humiliation of becoming a Roman captive. A minor character in Roman and Greek historical sources such as Livy’s Ab urbe condita, Plutarch’s Life of Scipio, and Appian’s Punic Wars, Sophonisba became a popular heroic figure in early modern Europe across national and confessional borders. Why did a seemingly...

Appel à contribution : « (Ab)jurer sa parole. Promettre la guerre et s’engager pour la paix pendant les crises de l’époque moderne (XVIe-XVIIe siècle) », Genève, Université de Genève, 17-18 février 2022, date limite le 15 octobre 2021

A une époque qui voit l’information se multiplier tout en changeant de forme, il est nécessaire de s’interroger sur la question de la parole, depuis sa genèse moderne à sa profusion contemporaine, mais également à son impact. Le projet Anthropologie politique et religieuse de la parole (XVIe-XVIIIe siècle) vise à mettre en lumière l’importance de la problématique de la gestion de la parole dans les sociétés modernes. Dans un paradoxe tout à fait fascinant, la...

Parution : Rinaldo F. Canalis, Massimo Ciavolella (dir.), « Disease and Disability in Medieval and Early Modern Art and Literature », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Humanity has always shown a keen interest in the pathological, ranging from a morbid fascination with ‘monsters’ and deformities to a genuine compassion for the ill and suffering. Medieval and early modern people were no exception, expressing their emotional response to disease in both literary works and, to a somewhat lesser extent, in the plastic arts. Consequently, it becomes necessary to ask what motivated writers and artists to choose an illness or a disability and...

Parution : Piers Baker-Bates, Irene Brooke (dir.), « Portrait Cultures of the Early Modern Cardinal », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

The visual legacy of early modern cardinals constitutes a vast and extremely rich body of artworks, many of superb quality, in a variety of media, often by well-known artists and skilled craftsmen. Yet cardinal portraits have primarily been analysed within biographical studies of the represented individual, in relation to the artists who created them, or within the broader genre of portraiture. No more profound investigation of these as a specific category of object has ever...

Parution : Susanna Burghartz et al. (dir.), « Materialized Identities in Early Modern Culture, 1450-1750. Objects, Affects, Effects », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

This collection embraces the increasing interest in the material world of the Renaissance and the early modern period, which has both fascinated contemporaries and initiated in recent years a distinguished historiography. The scholarship within is distinctive for engaging with the agentive qualities of matter, showing how affective dimensions in history connect with material history, and exploring the religious and cultural identity dimensions of the use of materials and artefacts. It thus aims to refocus our...

Parution : Heather Madar (dir.), « Prints as Agents of Global Exchange. 1500-1800 », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

The significance of the media and communications revolution occasioned by printmaking was profound. Less a part of the standard narrative of printmaking’s significance is recognition of the frequency with which the widespread dissemination of printed works also occurred beyond the borders of Europe and consideration of the impact of this broader movement of printed objects. Within a decade of the invention of the printing press, European prints began to move globally. Over the course of...

Appel à contribution : « Fashion and Function. Exploring the Protective Uses of Dress in Times of Crisis », en ligne, 24 septembre 2021, date limite le 10 juillet 2021

Friday, 24 September 2021, Supported by King’s College London, Online 11.00am GMT. Fashion in the early modern period was both creative and innovative, changing as people responded to the world around them. In times of crisis the functionality of dress as a way of providing protection became a practical concern for people, whatever their social status or financial means. From their materiality to their perceived protection, dress was adapted to serve a specific purpose. Whether...
