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...

Appel à contribution : Representing Islands and Water in Early Modern Cartography, RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 13 août 2021

The Mediterranean islands have occupied, at least since antiquity, a central position within the political and economic imperatives of numerous civilizations. These military powers will establish various forms of maritime control over the Mediterranean space. From the Minoans to the Genoese and Venetian Thalassocracies, as well as the Ottoman Empire, the Mediterranean Sea became the scene of countless battles for control of its islands and surrounding waters (even still today). When thought as a separate...

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...

Parution : Daniel Maira (dir.), « Mollesses renaissantes. Défaillances et assouplissement du masculin », Paris, Droz, 2021

Dans Il Libro del Cortegiano de Baldassare Castiglione, le personnage du comte Louis de Canossa s’en prend aux courtisans mous et efféminés qui se crêpent les cheveux, s’épilent les sourcils et se fardent comme les femmes les plus lascives. Tout risque d’avilissement d’une plénitude virile est ainsi à exécrer. La virilité réclame au XVIe siècle une posture éthique, physique et rhétorique à laquelle tous les hommes sont appelés à se conformer. Cette injonction à un...

Exposition : Lust, Love, and Loss in Renaissance Europe, Chicago, Smart Museum of Art, jusqu’au 13 juin 2021

Passion, violence, and virtue emerge in this exhibition as fundamental, intertwined elements in the artworks of Renaissance Europe. The objects on view—created for private homes and personal consumption—offer glimpses into the lives of artists and their audiences. Painters, printmakers, and craftsmen, inspired by popular literary sources including Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Boccaccio’s Decameron, and the Bible, interpreted their stories for everyday settings. Domestic objects such as painted panels and ceramics celebrated momentous life events, including marriage and childbirth, yet...

Colloque international : « Looking Back to Look Forward: Reshaping Ancient Figures in European Art, c. 1350-1650 », en ligne, 24-25 Juin 2021

The study of Antiquity rarely constitutes mere contemplation of things long gone. For centuries, ancient myth and historical figures have been sources of authority, prestige, and moral exemplarity, lenses through which to think about, and to some extent act upon, the present. This two-day conference aims to investigate notable examples of appropriation and reinvention, and to consider new interpretations of famous figures from ancient Greece, Rome, and the Old Testament, as found in c. 1350...
