Résumé

The Summer School "Crossing the past" aims for a discussion about different (national art historical narratives of a specific late medieval corpus in Moravia. It provides the opportunity for young international scholars to meet the material reality of one of the most important medieval centers of the transalpine Europe, often marginalized in research, not only due to the linguistic barrier. The goal of the school is a close and direct examination of the on-site monuments and art objects, and secondly, a critical reflection about the diverse narratives and meta-narratives existing about these monuments.

Argument

The Summer School “Crossing the past” aims for a discussion about different (national art historical narratives of a specific late medieval corpus in Moravia. It provides the opportunity for young international scholars to meet the material reality of one of the most important medieval centers of the transalpine Europe, often marginalized in research, not only due to the linguistic barrier. The goal of the school is a close and direct examination of the on-site monuments and art objects, and secondly, a critical reflection about the diverse narratives and meta-narratives existing about these monuments. The Summer School will be therefore composed of two main parts. During the first one, held in situ, groups composed of two scholars with various backgrounds and linguistic competences will be invited to present key monuments and objects of the two cities. In a second part, the same group will present the monuments again, focusing on the purely historiographical dimension, highlighting different “mono-cultural” positions. Every candidate will be invited to present a monument or certain urban, architectural or art historical aspect of one of the two chosen cities, from the list below. For the application it will be necessary to prove a primary knowledge and understanding of the subject, as well as a particular attention to its historiographical dimension. The aim is to create a space of exchange and of a new dialogue, based precisely on the different positions.
