Brian Richardson (University of Leeds): Presentation of the book Women and the circulation of texts in the Renaissance (2020) The Book and Print Initiative was founded in 2017 to bring together scholars of books, printed material, and printing, at all career stages, across the School of Advanced Study (SAS).

Appel à contribution : « Figures of Widows », Paris, INHA, 15 juin 2021, date limite le 15 mars 2021

Woman and widow under the Ancien Régime? The images defining a woman abound, should they describe a seductive woman, an influential or a common one. However, the images that could characterize the widow remain vague. As a matter of fact, the widow is defined essentially in negative terms; a widow is ‘the one who has lost her husband’ [1]. The social status imposed by widowhood is considered less favorable than that of a married woman,...

Appel à communication : Women and Agency: Transnational Perspectives, c.1450–1790, Virtual Symposium, University of Oxford, 24–25 June 2021, date limite le 28 février 2021

This two-day interdisciplinary symposium invites scholars to examine early modern women’s agency from a transnational perspective. Conversations about women’s agency continue to ripple across the world, from new, passionate campaigns in Mexico and Poland that have fought to address feminicide and sexual violence, to the Women’s Marches, which have annually inspired global response. Now, we turn with fresh urgency to early modern women’s participation in intellectual and literary cultures that bridged regional, national, and transnational...

Appel à communication : « The Virgin as Auctoritas : The Authority of the Virgin Mary and female moral–doctrinal authority in the Middle Ages », Association for Art History Annual Conference, Birmingham, date limite le 19 octobre 2020

Annual Association for Art History Conference, Birmingham 14 – 17 April 2021 Deadline 19 October 2020 This session aims at exploring a fundamental issue: female authority through the lens of visual/material culture. It involves prominently the Virgin Mary – as well as figures of female authority in the medieval world – because in the late decades of the 20th century, feminist thinkers pointed at the ‘negative model’ offered by the Virgin Mary since for centuries...

Appel à contribution : « Femme et folie sous l’Ancien Régime », Paris, 26-27 mars 2021, date limite le 1er septembre 2020

Dans son Histoire de la folie à l’âge classique (1961) Michel Foucault ne fait nulle part mention d’une différence entre les sexes, tant dans la classification que dans le traitement de la folie. Faut-il en conclure que le lien privilégié construit par la culture occidentale entre femme et folie ne prendrait son véritable essor qu’au XIXe siècle, le célèbre tableau Une leçon clinique à la Salpétrière (1887) jouant le rôle d’image archétypale ? C’est peu probable....

Appel à contribution : « Early Modern Women and Epidemics », Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal, n° 16.1 (Fall 2021), date limite 1er septembre 2020

Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal Volume 16.1 (Fall 2021) will feature a forum on “Early Modern Women and Epidemics” As Covid-19 has swept the world, early modern scholars have become acutely aware of the ways that its manifestations and the public’s reactions to them have resonated with outbreaks of disease in the premodern world. Social boundaries change and class mobility is brought into sharp focus—who can stay home; who must work, who can escape “hot...

Appel à communication : « Seduction and Courtship Rituals in Renaissance Italy », RSA 2021, Dublin, date limite le 10 août 2020

Session du Congrès de la Renaissance Society of America – Dublin, 2021 Temptation and seduction are somewhat gendered words. In the context of the premodern courtship ritual, the more passive temptation part, allowing oneself to be looked at, is mostly played by women, whereas the seduction part, actively doing something to seduce the other, such as following them around or serenading them, is mostly played by men.This is, however, not exclusively the case. Sometimes women use...

Appel à communication : « Genders », Second Seminar of the Venetian Art History Group, University of Warwick, date limite le 31 mai 2020

The question of genders in Venetian art is of particular significance and perennial interest. The artistic culture of Venice may have given special emphasis to the ‘feminine’, whether this is understood in terms of the depiction of the body, or as more widely reflected in its concern with lavish surfaces and rich materials. The art of Venice could even be understood as offering a kind of ‘feminine’ alternative to the more male-orientated artistic cultures of Florence...

Parution : Sharon T. Strocchia, Forgotten Healers Women and the Pursuit of Health in Late Renaissance Italy, Harvard University Press, 2020

A new history uncovers the crucial role women played in the great transformations of medical science and health care that accompanied the Italian Renaissance. In Renaissance Italy women played a more central role in providing health care than historians have thus far acknowledged. Women from all walks of life—from household caregivers and nurses to nuns working as apothecaries—drove the Italian medical economy. In convent pharmacies, pox hospitals, girls’ shelters, and homes, women were practitioners and...
