From medieval Western Europe to the early modern Spanish Americas and Asia, scholarship dealing with foodways and foodstuffs has considerably evolved in the last decades.

Going beyond the essential character of drinks and foodstuffs for the survival of the human body, food consumption is...

Appel à publication : « Becoming a Witch. Women and Magic in Medieval Europe (ca. 500-1400) », date limite le 31 mars 2021

Becoming a Witch. Women and Magic in Medieval Europe (ca. 500-1400) Edited by Andrea Maraschi (University of Bari) In the fifteenth century, through the treatises by Jean Gerson, Johannes Nider, Alphonso de Spina, Heinrich Kramer and others, a new conceptualization of women’s involvement in magic took shape, which led to crafting an idea of the “witch”. The aim of this volume is to publish original research exploring the slow and complex path leading to such...

Appel à contribution : « What does Animation mean in the Middle Ages? Theoretical and Historical Approaches », Bialystok, The A. Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art, 19-21 septembre 2021, date limite le 1er avril 2021

This conference is concerned with the agency and life of material objects and evolves around the investigation of two interlaced objectives. First, the project will shed light on understudied aspects of medieval visual culture, focusing in particular on the agency of images and material objects. Second, it will provide new cutting-edge theoretical reflections and methodologies concerning the study of material agency and “living images” today. We argue that the cultural use of and interaction with...

Appel à contribution : « Fortifications savantes, fortifications de savants », Bellecroix, 22-24 octobre 2021, date limite le 1er mai 2021

Quoi de commun entre une fortification classique telle que Neuf-Brisach, un château Renaissance comme Maulnes, une tour maîtresse romane telle que Châtillon-Coligny ? Toutes trois sont l’expression d’un tracé savant, dont la conception exige une conceptualisation dépassant l’utilisation des stéréotypes que sont le quadrangle ou le cercle. Quelles logiques, quels référentiels de doctrine ont présidé à la mise au point de ces tracés extraordinaires de l’Antiquité à l’époque moderne ? Faut-il y voir la volonté de maîtres...

Parution : Emmanuelle Mercier, et al., « Flesh, Gold and Wood. The Saint-Denis altarpiece in Liège and the question of partial paint practices in the 16th Century », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

The impressive altarpiece in the church of Saint-Denis in Liège is one of the most prestigious but also one of the most enigmatic witnesses to the rich Brabantine altarpiece production at the end of the Middle Ages. The interdisciplinary study carried out during its restoration at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) in Brussels between 2012 and 2014 allowed to resolve some of the questions involved and to propose new refreshing hypotheses. The attribution...

Parution : Nicolas Bock, Michele Tomasi (dir.), « Art et économie en France et en Italie au XIVe siècle. Prix, valeurs, carrières », Lausanne, Université de Lausanne, 2020

Ce volume invite à se jouer des frontières disciplinaires et à s’aventurer sur un terrain encore trop peu exploré pour le XIVe siècle, l’un des plus grands siècles de l’art européen. Les contributions réunies ici éclairent les rapports entre art, économie et société à l’aide de quelques études de cas, en adoptant différentes démarches: de la microanalyse de la production d’un seul artiste à la réflexion sur l’organisation de toute la chaîne de valeur, de la fabrication...
