Summary

The theme of the next Leeds International Medieval Congress in 2014  is “Empire". The Art-Hist project would like to explore topics dealing with “Imperial images and shapes: historical and historiographical approaches” and try to answer some questions: Does an imperial art exist during Carolingian or Ottonian Empire? How can it be defined? What can recall or evoke, in medieval works of art, the idea or concept of Empire? How does this principle of evocation work in artistic creation? How did emperors use these forms or images to build their own power and history?

Announcement

Call for contribution – IMC Leeds 2014

The Art-Hist project will organize in July 2014 two sessions during the next International Medieval Congress in Leeds (UK). The platform ART-HIST is designed as a structure of "virtual symposium" in which an original paper is proposed as support of discussions and exchanges between the members of a community of researchers invited to exchange on artistic creation from Antiquity to Modern times. A moderator assures the flow of exchanges between the participants to the virtual symposium, leads the debate and writes the synthesis of discussions. As a conclusion, the diptych article-synthesis is published on-line and becomes accessible to Internet users.

The theme of the next IMC is “Empire”; that’s why the Art-Hist project would like to explore topics dealing with “Imperial images and shapes: historical and historiographical approaches” and try to answer some questions: Does an imperial art exist during Carolingian or Ottonian Empire? How can it be defined? What can recall or evoke, in medieval works of art, the idea or concept of Empire? How does this principle of evocation work in artistic creation? How did emperors use these forms or images to build their own power and history?
