    Conference, symposium - Early modern

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Research libraries in Rome (1860-1930): the origins of an exceptional documentary collection

    Comment se sont constituées les collections documentaires exceptionnelles à l’étranger ? Quelle place cette histoire reflète-t-elle de la recherche en histoire, art et histoire de l’art dans l’histoire intellectuelle et culturelle de chacun des pays représentés, entre 1860 et 1930 ? Cette journée d’étude permet de poser le contexte des bibliothèques de recherche installées sur un territoire étranger et de s’intéresser en particulier aux premières décennies de leur fonctionnement, dans un arc chronologique assez large, des années 1830 aux lendemains de la Première Guerre mondiale.

    Au cœur des années 1970 italiennes : le tournant de 1973-1974

    Ce colloque propose, cinquante ans après les événements, une réflexion historique et historiographique sur les caractéristiques du biennio 1973-74 en Italie. Ces deux années représentent un passage décisif. Elles sont marquées, à l’échelle mondiale, par une série d’événements périodisants (coups d’État en Uruguay et au Chili, choc pétrolier, crise économique, fin des dictatures méditerranéennes...) dont il s’agira d’examiner les répercussions sur le contexte italien. Sur le plan national, ce biennio se situe à l’apogée de la modernisation politique et sociale du pays, confirmant le double visage d’une décennie pleine de contradictions (crise du centre gauche et premières hypothèses du compromis historique, paroxysme de la conflictualité ouvrière et passage à la lutte armée…). Nous nous proposons donc d’examiner les effets et enjeux du biennio 1973-74 sur le pays afin d’identifier plus précisément les spécificités du cas italien.

    Living through the Revolution

    Housing, property and citizenship (18th-21th centuries)

    L’objectif de ces journées est d’étudier la citadinité révolutionnaire, afin de nourrir la réflexion sur une série de notions connexes : habitat / logement / propriété. Chacune de ces notions renvoie à des rapports sociaux structurés par une série d’oppositions (sédentaires et nomades, propriétaires et locataires, résidence recensée et logement clandestin, logés et mal-logés) et à un spectre large de pratiques plus ou moins normées ou alternatives. Intégrer ces différents termes, étudier leurs variations, permettra non seulement de revenir sur les apports de différentes disciplines des sciences sociales, mais aussi d’être attentif aux variations des sources en fonction des contextes révolutionnaires.

    Eden Project

    “Vesper”. Journal of Architecture, Arts & Theory

    Eden Project aims to give space and visual representation to goals. It seeks to explore the ‘essence’ of pursued destinies, the tangible ‘collapse’ of imagined goals, and the tools employed in the realms of work, life, and thought to achieve them. Karl Kraus once argued: ‘Origin is the goal’. Eden represents the origin, eternally lost and only attainable as a goal. Eden, the garden of delights, in its innumerable interpretations and representations, is an enclosed place (indeed the original meaning of ‘paradise’ is ‘enclosed space’). It exists separately from the prevailing logic of the surrounding territory, exclusive in nature, safeguarding its unique contents: a realm brimming with water and diverse forms of life. Vesper invites a wide spectrum of narratives on that can contribute to the reflection of this matter, welcoming different writings and styles, privileging the visual intelligence of design, of graphic expression, of images and contaminations between different languages.

    Medioevo e femminismi

    In the wake of Madeline Caviness's seminal article, what assessment can be made of the fertile links between the Middle Ages and feminism? In its wake, the next issue of Perspectives médiévales invites us to take a fresh look at the reciprocal contributions of medievalism and feminism, as part of an epistemological and historical reflection on the Middle Ages and the present. The aim of this issue is to explore contemporary feminisms by exploring the Middle Ages and their representations. In other words, in what way is the Middle Ages an object of investigation both for feminist thought and by feminist thought?

    Da San Genuario all'Europa. Monasteri e acqua, monasteri in terre d'Acqua

    From San Genuario to Europe : monasteries and water, monasteries in wetlands

    The conference will examine the central role of water in the life of cenobitic centres, through general overviews across vast areas of the Continent and individual case studies, in a discourse on the longue durée, which, from the most ancient Early Medieval experiences to the development of the monastic Orders, testifies to the many and complex facets of the relationship between monasteries and water still present in the European landscape.

    Cantieri dell’Agiografia, 7th edition Rome

    The Cantieri dell’Agiografia (Hagiography Workshops) aim both at encouraging networking among scholars and at bringing out the most innovative research and methodologies in the field of hagiographical studies. This workshop provides a context in which the participants’ research can be showcased in diachronic and multidisciplinary forms. Participants are encouraged to discuss methodological tools, historical paths, and social and cultural interactions that, over the centuries and up to the present day, have sustained the process of recognition of sanctity, such as cultic practices, places of devotion, and forms of hagiographical communication.

    Actors, practices and the circulation of scientific knowledge in Colonial Italy

    Farestoria. Società e storia pubblica. Istituto storico della Resistenza e dell’età contemporanea di Pistoia

    Over the past forty years, the relationship between science and colonial empires has been increasingly debated in the historical field. Following the perspectives opened up by international historiography, this issue of Farestoria aims to reflect on the processes of construction of scientific practices in the context of Italian colonial expansion. It intends to examine the construction of medical and scientific knowledge within a widened landscape, that of the circulation and reformulation of conceptions, practices and scientific objects between colonial and metropolitan spaces and across imperial borders. The issue will also give priority to reflection that considers longer-term perspectives, paying attention to the processes of formation and structuring of knowledge, practices and devices across liberal, fascist and post-war republican Italy.

    Lectures méditerranéennes

    S’il est généralement reconnu que l’Empire ottoman fut, du moins au XVIe siècle, une puissance méditerranéenne et participa de ce fait à la construction de l’Europe, le grand récit occidental a eu tendance à le considérer comme un intrus, dont la perception variait de la marginalisation politique à l’exclusion culturelle. C’est sur ce dernier point que portera ce cycle de conférences, non pour tenter de renverser l’argument de l’exclusion, mais pour proposer un examen critique de la nature et des limites des connexions entre l’Empire ottoman et certains aspects de l’héritage et du patrimoine méditerranéens.

    The European space. Geo-economic balances and State powers in the long run

    In the construction of the European space(s) a crucial role has been played by economic actors and relations, which often overpass national borders and intertwin with the nature and roles of political powers and national States. Even well before the last globalization (or re-globalization), traditional government systems were pressed by the internationalization of economies: by centrifugal pushes, the need for external resources, or the emergence of new actors on the international stage in economic, technical, and social fields, that have increasingly influenced both the private and the public life. In more recent times, then, a new institutional framework developed at the supranational, European, level getting new functions and involving actors, such as trade unions, charities, business interests, scientific institutions, and churches, reinforcing the dynamics of cooperation, integration, and convergence beyond national borders.

    Legitimate consumption in medieval cities (12th-16th centuries)

    Ce colloque a pour but d’interroger la notion de consommation légitime dans les cités médiévales entre le XIIe et le XVIe siècle. Qu’est-ce que la, ou plutôt les bonnes consommations ? Qui est légitime à dire la frontière entre l’indispensable et le superflu ? Pourquoi cette capacité à dire la norme devient-elle de plus en plus cruciale dans des mondes urbains en mutation rapide ? Le colloque sera particulièrement attentif à mener une approche comparatiste entre les différents espaces de l’Occident médiéval (Italie, péninsule ibérique, France, Angleterre, Pays-Bas, Empire...).

    Joan of Arc’s tears

    Des lettres gigantesques, lumineuses, hypnotisantes : Jeanne d’Arc. Filmées d’en bas, pour leur conférer encore plus de poids, elles apparaisent sur l’écran en diagonale, comme si elles se projetaient ailleurs. Un autre écrit lumineux, vertical, au second plan, précise le lieu où nous sommes : ciné. C’est clairement une invitation à entrer dans la salle obscure. Le film projeté est La passion de Jeanne d’Arc de Dreyer (1928). Mais maintenant il est dans un autre film. Nous accompagnons en effet dans cette salle de cinéma une autre bouleversante, fragile, superbe fille, la Nana / Anna Karina de Godard (Vivre sa vie, 1962). Une communauté de destin se dessine entre les deux personnages. Le numéro de K. Revue trans-européenne de philosophie et arts consacré à Jeanne d’Arc voudrait sonder cette transformation de l’expression d’une douleur intime en une émotion collective, et, peut-être, en une politique de l’émancipation.

    Les États de Savoie et la mer

    Approche juridique et institutionnelle - XIVe-XIXe siècles

    Entre l’acquisition de Nice en 1388 et celle de la Ligurie en 1815, l’histoire des États de Savoie est marquée par une succession de tentatives pour accéder à la mer et devenir progressivement une puissance méditerranéenne. Nice, Oneille, la Sicile, la Sardaigne, Loano, Menton-Roquebrune, et enfin la Ligurie sont autant d’étapes de cette surprenante vocation méditerranéenne que la dynastie alpine s’attribue et qu’elle finit par concrétiser. Étrange destinée en effet que celle de cette monarchie dont le berceau ducal est Savoyard et la couronne royale Sarde, pour des souverains qui sont par ailleurs « rois de Chypre et de Jérusalem ».
