    Conference, symposium - Middle Ages

    « Vies parallèles » des Classiques et des Pères latins au Moyen Âge – 2

    Le colloque « Vies parallèles » des Classiques et des Pères latins au Moyen Âge, dont le premier volet a eu lieu en début d'année 2024 au Campus Condorcet, se poursuivra avec une seconde rencontre à Milan du mercredi 19 au vendredi 21 juin 2024. Son objectif est de faire dialoguer entre eux deux domaines d’étude qui, quoique très proches, ont tendance à être traités séparément et hermétiquement dans la bibliographie : la transmission et la réception des textes classiques et celles des textes patristiques.

    Cicero’s Epistulae ad Brutum between politics, rhetoric and philosophy

    Lecturae Ciceronis 2025

    Consacré au corpus épistolaire Ad Brutum, ce colloque s’inscrit dans la nouvelle série de conférences lancée en 2024 par la Société internationale des amis de Cicéron (SIAC) : les Lecturae Ciceronis. L’objectif de ces Lecturae est de rassembler des chercheuses et des chercheurs non sur un thème cicéronien mais sur une œuvre cicéronienne pour en proposer la lecture la plus approfondie possible, en croisant des approches et des méthodes diverses : histoire du texte, étude des sources, étude du contexte, lecture analytique au plus près du texte, analyses lexicales ou synthèses théoriques. L’enjeu premier des Lecturae est d’offrir pour l’œuvre considérée à la fois un état de l’art et des pistes permettant une approche renouvelée, dégagée des a priori et redonnant aux textes ses différents niveaux de sens.

    The World of Silk Between France and Italy, 16th-19th Century

    This workshop aims to consider Franco-Italian relations concerning silk from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century by fostering dialogue between research that has hitherto been separated by historiographical tradition, particularly combining history and art history. This interdisciplinary approach is all the more essential as it seeks to scrutinize through the same set of inquiries the entire silk production chain (from mulberry cultivation to fabric consumption, including thread manufacturing and preparation, pattern creation, and weaving). By revealing the importance of interdependencies among the various stages of the production and consumption process and the different actors within this industry, this approach leads to new considerations of the connections between the social worlds and the territories that silk interlinked.

    The Functions of Surrealism

    As part of the celebrations for the centenary of Breton’s first Manifesto of Surrealism (1924), the Conference will explore the functions of Surrealism in aesthetic, poetic, ethical, and political terms, examining the Movement’s impact on several fields of knowledge. Going beyond the divisive approach either praising or criticising the Movement, the conference intends to explore Surrealism with a pragmatic approach, focussing on the variety of its effects. The focus will thus be on Surrealism as a cultural object, in the perspective of tracing a history of the narratives of the Movement with the aim less of assessing their “truth” but rather of understanding their scopes and assumptions. The approach will allow to reconsider the several forms of reception of Surrealism with a novel and interdisciplinary methodology, thus suggesting new reconsideration of the legacy of the Movement.

    Pastoral Academies. A global Phenomenon?

    At the intersection between literature and socio-cultural history, but also between methods, the comparative and the historical-philological approach, this conference offers an opportunity for the study traditions of several countries, including France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Poland, to come together around a relatively new research subject: the pastoral academy. Between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, throughout Europe and even in Latin America, writers, poets and scholars, men and women, took on the names of shepherds in pastoral literary academies. While some of these academies are well known (the Accademia dell'Arcadia in Rome, the Pegnesische Blumenorden in Nuremberg), the phenomenon was on an unsuspected scale and deserves to be explored in its global dimension.

    Venise et le collectionnisme

    XXVIIe Séminaire d'histoire de l'art vénitien 

    Venise occupe une place singulière dans l’histoire du collectionnisme : elle vit s’épanouir la démarche humaniste des cardinaux Grimani, rendue publique ensuite par un legs à la Sérénissime, celle dynastique des familles patriciennes souvent ruinées au fil du temps, mais aussi la passion des diplomates (Joseph Smith) et des voyageurs (Giovanni Miani, Enrico di Borbone) avides de réunir des souvenirs artistiques de la cité ou de leurs expéditions lointaines, ou bien le goût des nouvelles fortunes industrielles (Cini, Ligabue) ou internationales (Pinault) et des artistes même (Fortuny, Vedova, Kapoor). Comment interagissent ces collectionneurs avec les marchands, antiquaires, agents, érudits ou experts, conseillers dans cette quête ? comment se forme leur goût et quels choix les guident dans la constitution des ensembles ? quelles émulations ou concurrences se jouent ? Outre ces questionnements, le séminaire abordera les grandes mutations à l’œuvre dans le temps. En quoi la collection dresse un portrait de son auteur et comment les collections forgent à leur tour une image de la Cité ?

    Women missionaries in Islamic lands: roots, limits, changes (early 19th century - early 21st century)

    Despite their numerical preponderance among the missionary workforce exercising a Christian apotolate at the end of the Ottoman Empire, women have long attracted less work than men. A rebalancing is in progress, spurred on by the gender studies and extended to the whole Muslim world. We will focus on real encounter and conflict situations, avoiding an essentialist approach to Islam and considering the extreme diversity of the field strategies and practices. This approach will be carried out in equal parts, in a decentering and critical way, far from denominational approaches.

    Apocalypse and dystopia in Italian and French literature, 1945 to the present

    « Cahiers d’études italiennes, Novecento… e dintorni », n° 42, printemps 2026

    Les intrigues dystopiques et apocalyptiques sont fréquentes dans la littérature récente et contemporaine. Pour en saisir toute la portée, il faut néanmoins les replacer dans le contexte historique constitué par la révolution scientifique (théorisée par Francis Bacon), la transformation capitaliste de l’économie, la philosophie de l’histoire (née dans la seconde moitié du XVIIIe siècle) ainsi que par les courants « messianiques » modernes auxquels ces intrigues apocalyptiques s'opposent...

    Land Use and Consumption in a Historical Perspective

    Definitions, Concepts, and Methods

    The relationship between societies and soil is intrinsic to human history. Nowadays, this relationship is strongly defined by land use and consumption practices that, at different scales, increasingly threaten the common good and the biodiversity conservation. Urban planning interventions and intensive forms of production lead to the fragmentation, erosion, and ultimately, transformation of soil into a commodity, a freely usable “raw material,” rather than recognizing it as a non-reproducible good. In such a context, a revision of the evolution of concepts of use, consumption, and artificialization of the soil can contribute to a better understanding of the perspectives and rhetoric developed over time and in relation to contemporary challenges.

    “Imago Mundi”. An Overview of Metaphor: Creativity, Phraseology and Discourse

    The guiding question of the conference will therefore be to try to specify the linguistic and conceptual functioning of the metaphor. More generally, the conference will welcome any contribution aimed at bringing out the relationships between metaphor and the three concepts in question: creativity, lexicalization and discourse. The analysis of metaphor can proceed from both a diachronic and synchronic perspective and address different types of corpora and texts. The conference will pay particular attention to the analysis of different types of discourse, in particular scientific, technological, media, tourism, advertising, political, legal, philosophical, historical, literary, artistic and educational/didactic discourse.

    Journal “InterArtes”

    Depuis le développement des études sur la bande dessinée dans le monde occidental, à savoir dès les années soixante, on a observé une croissance imposante, dans différents domaines disciplinaires, de contributions scientifiques portant sur son langage et ses auteurs. Des reconstructions historiques, des études sociologiques, des interprétations culturelles, des analyses sémiotiques et linguistiques, des comparaisons intermédiales ont offert au cours de ces décennies un cadre historique, théorique et méthodologique permettant de définir le langage de la bande dessinée, ses formes, ses genres et ses évolutions, son dialogue avec les autres arts, sa valeur esthétique ainsi que son impact idéologique et culturel. Cependant, nous estimons qu'il reste encore beaucoup à explorer et à définir, notamment dans la relation – objet de nombreux débats récemment – entre la bande dessinée et la littérature.

    Digital democracy: promises and illusions

    Internet neutrality, access to information, democracy formats

    A stable and peaceful society is based on a solid and strong democracy. The democratic model is the future of any society that respects human rights.New information and communication technologies and the still poorly regulated advances in Artificial Intelligence have impacted not only all human activity, but have also contributed to reshaping the relationship with politics, citizen participation, political communication and politics, national and international. The purpose of this international conference is to question the phenomenon of electronic democracy not only from an instrumental point of view (e-voting tool), but to question the conditions of possibility and possible limits.

    Gaetano Salvemini (1873-1957) and France

    The conference intends to propose an overall re-examination of Salvemini's relations with France, starting with those matured with some historians during the drafting phase of his volume on the French Revolution (1905, subsequently reissued several times with variants), passing through his relations with some important intellectuals and those gravitating around the figure of his second wife Fernande Dauriac, arriving at those with the world of Italian and European antifascist exile. Vast and significant, even if not always marked by sympathy and harmony of ideas, appear, moreover, the relations with exponents of the labor movement and with various personalities of the French socialist world. A separate chapter is, finally, represented by relations with the Giustizia e Libertà movement.
