    Study days - History

    Predication and society in the British Isles in the 14th and 15th centuries

    Preaching tools and reception

    Cette journée d’étude internationale se concentrera sur les outils de la prédication, à savoir les manuscrits et leurs contenus. Entre autres choses, nous aborderons la question des publics auxquels ils étaient destinés : nous nous intéresserons aux notions de variation et d’adaptation textuelles, puis nous verrons ce que les approches linguistiques et codicologiques peuvent nous révéler sur la prédication à cette époque. Enfin, nous nous pencherons sur les aspects sociétaux et culturels de ce genre littéraire.

    British Philanthropies 1750-1914

    Reforming and Redeeming the World and the Metropolis

    This one-day conference wishes to explore those concurring and complementing aspects and the evolutions that philanthropy underwent between 1750 and 1914 in the British Empire and the metropolis. PhD and postgrad students whose researches focus on philanthropic endeavours and societies, missionary organizations and/or philanthropic literature from the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century are more than welcome to speak on this occasion. Speakers are also invited to reflect on the historiographical perspectives of those issues and discuss their representations and treatment in school curricula, commemoration events and ceremonies, such as the 2007 Bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade in the UK.
