Parution : Vanina Kopp, Elizabeth Lapina (dir.), « Games and Visual Culture in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

The volume contributes to reconstruction of medieval and early modern gaming culture through analysis of visual and material evidence. During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, games were not an idle pastime, but were in fact important tools for exploring, transmitting, enhancing, subverting, and challenging social practices and their rules. Their study, through both visual and material sources, offers a unique insight into medieval and early modern gaming culture, shedding light not only on why,...

Appel à contribution : « Imago, Actus et Verbum. Challenges and Questions in Medieval Studies », en ligne, date limite le 15 octobre 2021

On the outset of the 21st century, cross-disciplinary studies on the Middle Ages seem to be in need of a careful reconsideration of their nature, scope and aims. This is specially so after the series of « turns » undergone by historiography in the last four decades. Despite their differences, philosophy, history, philology , literary studies and art are also bound through their work on texts; and all are currently faced with both methodological and substantive issues...

Appel à communication : « New Approaches to the Art and Architecture of Angevin and Aragonese Naples (1265-1458) », 57th ICMS, date limite le 15 septembre 2021

The city and kingdom of Naples occupied a central place in late-medieval Mediterranean life: it was a powerful kingdom with deep connections to the French throne; it controlled vast territories throughout Italy in service to the papacy; and its many ports welcomed goods arriving from the Levant, north Africa, and western Europe. Despite this importance during the medieval period the city has been, generally, overshadowed by other cities such as Rome, Florence, and Venice in...

Parution : Olivier Simonin, Caroline de Barrau (dir.), « La Formule au Moyen Âge III », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Les modes de pensée et de représentation médiévaux sont profondément marqués par l’usage de reprises et de régularités attendus et reconnaissables, qui sont sources de tensions productives entre expression individuelle et normes collectives, changement et continuité, création et convention. De façon très générale, toute formule se caractérise par un figement ou une régularité plus ou moins marquée laissant la place, en creux, à l’innovation. La définition de la formule se décline différemment en fonction de...

Appel à articles : « Mary-Anne : Iconographies and Layers of Meaning », date limite le 10 octobre 2021

The proposed volume concentrates on representations of the Virgin Mary and Saint Anne in the Middle Ages by bringing into discussion new approaches on their iconographies. In certain instances, Mary’s life incorporates episodes of Saint Anne’s allowing, thus, multiple readings and multiple layers of meaning in the very same (visual) representation. The volume is dedicated to the iconography of the Virgin Mary and Saint Anne, generally speaking, from any geographic area. This implies that any...

Appel à contribution : « The Virgin and the City. Urban Marian Spaces in Late Medieval Europe », en ligne, 9-14 mai 2022, date limite le 1er septembre 2021

The session wishes to analyze the Marian presence in Late Medieval European cities. The scholarly importance of the session lies in understanding how the Virgin became a part of urban landscapes and how the political and civic powers enhanced religious place‐making practices. How was the Mother of God accommodated and exhibited in civic space? What does Marian images’ location reveal about the relationship between devotion and public places? Why did the Virgin become the guarantor...

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...

Appel à communication : « Framing the multimodality of early modern images : agency, performance and medialogy to study artefacts », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 27 juillet 2021

Understanding paintings and sculptures as a « dispositif » (De Certeau, Agamben) has become a new research approach in the Humanities in recent years. Visual anthropology  and cognition are nowadays commonly used to explore how early modern images work within a process of production, mediation and reception (Freedberg & Gallese ; Belting). However, Visual semiology, Information and Communication Sciences are yet to be invested in a fruitful medialogy that could provide a bridge between disciplines. Studying interpersonal and...
