Conférence : Urte Krass, « The Big Empty. A New Interpretation of Velazquez’s So-Called La Mulata », en ligne, 29 janvier 2021

Velázquez’s painting featuring a black kitchen maid standing among pots, plates, and pitchers is famously infused with ambiguity. The figure and her surroundings, which include an image-in-the-image of the Supper at Emmaus, visually and thematically interweave with one another in multiple ways that set up a series of subtle and elusive pictorial dialogues. The bodegón curiously appears to turn the Emmaus scene inside-out, emptying the biblical table in a contemporary setting. This paper interrogates these...

Parution : Thomas Troy, « Poussin’s Women : Sex and Gender in the Artist’s Works », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Poussin’s Women: Sex and Gender in the Artist’s Works examines the paintings and drawings of the well-known seventeenth-century French painter Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) from a gender studies perspective, focusing on a critical analysis of his representations of women. The book’s thematic chapters investigate Poussin’s women in their roles as predators, as lustful or the objects of lust, as lovers, killers, victims, heroines, or models of virtue. Poussin’s paintings reflect issues of gender within his social...

Appel à contribution : « The Space Between Non-Arts and Fine Arts: Confronting Gender and the Decorative Arts, 1500–1800 », Birmingham, 14-17 avril 2021, date limite le 19 octobre 2020

The decorative arts are not easily defined and have long occupied the shifting space between the non-arts and the fine arts. During the early modern period, prominent women, such as Catherine de’ Medici and Amalia van Solms-Braunfels, were at the forefront of amassing impressive collections of decorative objects. Limoges enamel pieces created by Susanne de Court and embroideries fabricated by Katharina Rozee were highly sought after by collectors throughout Europe. Recent exhibitions and publications highlight...

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 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 : « Strong Women in Early Modern Iberian Art », RSA 2021, Dublin, date limite le 1er août 2020

Session du Congrès de la Renaissance Society of America – Dublin, 7-10 avril 2021 Thanks to recent exhibitions, publications, and museum acquisitions, women have come roaring back into view in the history of early modern art.

Parution : Sara Ritchey et Sharon Strocchia (dir.), Gender, Health, and Healing, 1250-1550, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

This path-breaking collection offers an integrative model for understanding health and healing in Europe and the Mediterranean from 1250-1550. By foregrounding gender as an organizing principle of healthcare, the contributors challenge traditional binaries that ahistorically separate care from cure, medicine from religion, and domestic healing from fee-for-service medical exchanges. The essays collected here illuminate previously hidden and undervalued forms of healthcare and varieties of body knowledge produced and transmitted outside the traditional settings of university,...
