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...

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,...

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. Des criminelles aux saintes, la rupture avec la cellule familiale catalyse bien souvent une vie singulière, et le lien que la femme entretient avec son propre corps en est modifié. 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...
