Presentation

Is the “Middle Ages” that American, Chinese and African societies reimagine today the same? Does medievalism only value the European societies of the 5th-15th centuries or is the notion also relevant for other regions of the world, other period of history, qualified as “Middle Ages”? Do the various forms of appropriation of the Middle Ages today (artistic creation, leisure economy, cultural mediation) contribute to the global domination of Anglo-Saxon culture, or are they vectors of valorization for local cultural identities? 

The summer school “Medievalisms form around the world” will question the issues of the reception of the Middle Ages in the age of globalisation. The working week will alternate théoretical reflexions (conferences, round tables) and practical work (experimental workshop) in English and French. 

Summer school dates: Lausanne 11-15 september 2023
