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,...

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...

Séminaire : « Corps féminin : actualité de la recherche », Paris, Maison de la recherche de la Sorbonne, 2019-2020

Séminaire de Questes Le modèle traditionnel insistant sur l’oppression du corps féminin a été largement enrichi par les recherches récentes. Des cas d’étude ont en effet montré que le corps de la femme médiévale se pense désormais de manière plurielle.

Ainsi, les recherches actuelles sur...

Appel à communication : « The (in)human self across early modern genres: textual strategies. 1550-1700 », Galway, date limite : 28 février 2016

The (in)human self across early modern genres: textual strategies (1550-1700) Galway, Nui Galway University 22-26 août 2016 Recent studies on early modern constructions and representations of the self, the body and the human suggest a reappraisal of the notion of selfhood in terms of an unbounded – for example with respect to animals, or the in-human space of technology – and vulnerable form. As Cynthia Marshall noted: ‘Even as significant discourses were effecting the emergence of...

Appel à communication : « Gender and Emotion », Hull (Yorkshire), date limite : 7 septembre 2015

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...
