    Summer School - Representation

    Islamic heritage in Europe

    Over the past decades, there has been a growing interest among scholars in analysing how the Islamic heritage in Europe has been perceived, described, preserved, erased, negotiated or transformed in different areas of Europe, from medieval to modern times. However, those debates seldom crossed the borders of regional approaches. The aim of this training school is to discuss those issues from different and complementary perspectives, including art history, but also philosophy, history of science or anthropology, and to question the traditional regional narrative through a comparative examination of Islamic monuments in a wider Mediterranean perspective.

    Pathos. Forms and fortunes of literary emotions

    The goal of this summer school is to explore the role of emotions in literature, namely with respect to the excess of pathos in different forms and times. Pathos has been a fundamental aspect of literature in every epoch. Great poetry has always foregrounded its ability to represent feelings, evoke intense and vivid moods, and elicit readers’ emotions and empathy. On the other hand, the novel – the genre dominating literary modernity – has been o!en accused of indulging in sentimental excess, giving too much space to melodramatic expression. Indeed, in Western cultures, there is a widespread suspicion towards pathos, which has o!en been identified as a shortcoming of literature. Great books – according to a common implicit assumption – can prompt reflection and laughter, but not tears: pathos only concerns lowbrow production. The summer school is an opportunity to engage in a reflection on issues related to pathos in literature in the last few centuries. Different perspectives will be taken into account: specific literary works, reader response theory, cognitive narratology, transmedia adaptation, and publishing history.

    Les noces de Cadmos et Harmonie. La Renaissance européenne et sa réception

    La rencontre a pour but un questionnement sur les liens entre problématiques politiques et religieuses d'un côté, et la production littéraire et artistique de l'autre, dans l'Europe de la Renaissance, avec une attention particulière pour notamment l‘Italie, la France et l’Espagne. La réception de ces notions dans l'historiographie et la critique littéraire, ainsi que dans l'imaginaire de la modernité sera au centre de la réflexion. Un volet important de cette manifestation consistera en un dialogue ouvert sur la formation des élites dirigeantes européennes au début de la modernité et le rôle, dans ce cadre, des noblesses et des cours.

    Perceptions and representations of borders and border spaces from the Middle Ages to the modern age (9th-18th centuries)

    L'université d'été internationale « Perception et représentation des frontières et des espaces frontaliers au Moyen Âge et à l’époque moderne (IXe-XVIIIe siècle) » s'inscrit dans les renouvellements actuels de la recherche sur les espaces et les examine sous deux angles. D’une part, il s’agit de mettre en lumière les représentations des frontières dans les sources. D’autre part, l’atelier vise à contextualiser les zones frontalières dans leurs interdépendances régionales respectives. Ainsi, on pourra dépasser une approche essentialiste des espaces et prendre en compte leurs caractéristiques propres ainsi que les dynamiques qui les traversent.

    The Economy in writing: Medieval and Modern Economic records and their use

    7th summer school of economic history

    La septième école d’été d’histoire économique, qui se réunira à Suse (Piémont, Italie) les 27, 28 et 29 août 2018, aura comme thème « Les écritures de l’économie aux époques médiévale et moderne : de l’enregistrement de l’activité à l’usage des documents ». La vie économique implique le recours à l’écriture et la maîtrise de compétences multiples, qui vont de la mise par écrit des titres de propriété aux différentes techniques permettant de mesurer la circulation des flux d’objets produits ou d’argent entre les parties. Les organisateurs, reprenant des thèmes désormais familiers aussi bien aux médiévistes qu’aux modernistes, désirent travailler sur la question des rationalités pratiques telles qu’elles se dévoilent à travers les opérations qui peuvent être énoncées à l’aide des verbes, écrire, compter, mesurer.

    Memory and the making of knowledge in the Early Modern world

    While memory is an established sub-field within these disciplines, its themes and sources have led to an over-representation of the ancient and modern worlds, meaning that the early modern era has been comparatively neglected. The School seeks not merely to redress this imbalance, but also to explore how studies of memory and early modernity might shape one another in the future. Participants in the Summer School, which will take place between 18 and 22 September 2017, will have the opportunity to discuss the most recent research presented by leading scholars in the field, to learn or refine skills in workshops that focus on the media and techniques of memory, and to present their own work to a uniquely qualified and supportive international peer group.

    Digital History Summer School

    Today, historians are increasingly confronted with questions about the use of primary sources. How does one deal with historical primary sources in the Digital Age? What peculiarities present sources, which have been digitized, or which originated in digital form–so-called “born-digital” sources? How do we read them? How do we interpret them? How can they be used in order to construct a historical narrative? 

    This four-day Summer School offers historians (PhD-candidates, graduates students, established historians) the opportunity to acquire the basic principles of data usage in the historical sciences, and benefit from insights gained in other humanities and social sciences disciplines.

    Work organization in Medieval and Modern periods

    6th summer school of economic history

    The topic of the the sixth economic history summer school will enable us to continue and deepen the themes developed over the past few years (the value of things, poverty, common goods, means of payment and quality). While work involves acting on material things, its organization implies a reflection on the property of things, the relationships with time, discipline, control and know-how. On the part of governments, it also requires information that makes it possible to reflect on the state of economic life as well as on all the conflicts endemic to society, to be able to work out legal and practical devices that are necessary for the constitution of a particular knowledge. It also finally questions issues around technical training and the command of various forms of know-how, in contexts that sometimes place some rival systems in a competing situation.

    The social history of religious belonging

    An interdisciplinary approach. From the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean. 15th-20th century

    L’histoire religieuse a longtemps constitué un chapitre à part dans l’historiographie des sociétés modernes et contemporaines, souvent réservé aux spécialistes du fait religieux, des croyances ou des pratiques, et des institutions. La question des appartenances religieuses demeure pourtant un élément déterminant en histoire sociale et politique, qu’il convient de reconsidérer à la lumière des déplacements historiographiques les plus récents. L’objectif de cet atelier sera ainsi de réfléchir à la façon dont les sciences sociales permettent de penser les appartenances religieuses, de la fin du Moyen Age à nos jours, en comparant des espaces géographiques parfois très éloignés.

    D’une durée de cinq jours, cette dixième session de l’Atelier doctoral d’Arezzo aura pour thème « Apprentissages et transmission des savoir-faire en Europe, XIIIe-XVIIIie siècle ». À partir de ce titre volontairement large, on s’interrogera plus particulièrement sur les formes, les modes d’organisation liés à la formation des travailleurs et à la transmission des connaissances pratiques dans différents secteurs de l’économie en Europe (y compris le milieu de la production artistique) au bas Moyen Âge et à l’époque moderne. On abordera aussi le rôle du réseau familial et des relations sociales et la place des femmes dans la transmission des savoirs pratiques et d’une manière plus générale, les multiples relations liant apprentissage, talent et création.
