    Conference, symposium - Early modern

    Art and friendship in the 17th and 18th centuries in Europe

    International symposium of GRHAM

    À la suite de la pandémie qui nous a chacun isolés, des revues telles que le Courrier international et Philosophie magazine consacraient leur numéro de cet été à l’amitié. Nous souhaitons, à travers cette journée d’étude, interroger cette notion d’actualité au prisme d’une histoire sociale et culturelle de l’art. Comment les artistes des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles vivaient-ils et concevaient-ils l’amitié ?

    Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries

    As part of its research programme “Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The court was a microcosm of society under the Ancien Régime. The royal family and the great noblemen were not only in each other’s company, but they also rubbed shoulders with a whole crowd of office-holders of greater or lesser importance, who ensured the smooth running of this mechanism.

    The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles

    As part of its research programme “The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Five themes will contribute to the ideas about ways in which these galleries can be made more accessible to the public. Indeed, in spite of its gaps, this collection offers strong evidence of a specific view of the history of France that the Museum of the Palace of Versailles should analyse and question today.

    Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)

    As part of its research programme “Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Research will be organised along five different lines, through which the idea of the “perfect court”, such as we find at Versailles, can be defined: organisational model, public and private areas in the residence, reigning and governing in Europe, palace and democracy, State and palace rituals.

    The edges of species

    Frontière·s. Revue d’archéologie, histoire et histoire de l’art

    Greek and Roman mythologies are populated by hybrid creatures borrowing physical characteristics from both humans and animals, as illustrated by the well-known examples of the Sphinx, the Faun, or the Minotaur. These imaginary hybridisations cross the permeable boundary that separates humans from animals. The affirmation of human exceptionality progressively allowed Greek philosophy to raise and isolate Man within the animal kingdom. Nevertheless, ancient and medieval literature, ethnography and zoology continued to question the interspecific boundaries not as a radical dissociation but as a porous limit, a grey zone with multiple gradients of humanity and animality, of which mythological hybridity is only one manifestation. For this eighth issue, the authors are invited to question the boun- daries between non-human animal species, but also between the animal and human species.

    Post-doctorate on history of syphilis and neverending infectious diseases

    The objective of this project is to identify and investigate the variety of factors that explain the paradox of the non-eradication of some infectious diseases. The post-doctoral researcher will contribute to a history of medical collections, materiality and remediation of artefacts related to the history of syphilis and neverending infectious diseases. He/she will work directly with the inventory and valorisation of the histo-pathological material archives at the historical Institut d’Anatomie Pathologique de Strasbourg and with the 3D-digitalisation of wax moulages in Geneva.

    What future for Theater in the Arab World?

    Practices, movements and perspectives in the perpetuation of Theater production in the Arab World

    The ephemeral dimension of Theater is often considered as an obstacle for a pertinent account of past representations, hence the difficulty of writing the history of a practice when we cannot consider every moment of its creative process. We cannot also apprehend clearly its future. However, even if it does not pretend to predict the future, this call for papers wishes to question the long-term effects and the procedures that contribute to the perpetuation of Theatrical currents and productions in the Arab World.

    Pierre Jeanneret, l’architecte et le constructeur - doctorats en architecture ou en histoire de l’architecture

    Sont recherché·e·s deux deux doctorant·e·s dans le cadre du projet de recherche « Pierre Jeanneret, l'architecte et le constructeur ». Le projet de recherche vise à produire une connaissance nouvelle et originale sur la production et l’œuvre de l’architecte Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967). Remarquable tant par la cohérence de sa démarche, que par l’intelligence des stratégies de matérialisation déployées, l’œuvre de Pierre Jeanneret présente une envergure exceptionnelle, portée par un engagement social sans faille toute échelle confondue, du mobilier à la ville. Les outils de l’histoire matérielle et de l’histoire culturelle seront convoqués pour éclairer la complexité de l’œuvre de Pierre Jeanneret et en reveler la richesse. À ce jour, elle n’a pas fait l’objet d’une investigation exhaustive.

    Nordic minimalism (architecture, art, design and literature)

    « Nordiques », n° 44, 2022

    The interdisciplinary journal Nordiques is issuing a call for papers on the notion of minimalism as an aesthetic often associated with Northern Europe. Proposals are expected to study this notion in its various meanings, in its transmedial and transnational specificities, or in its aesthetic, historical and sociocultural anchorage, in the light of a Nordic delimitation.

    Poetics of the fictional place in the novel of the Arab peninsula

    Revue « Littérature et culture arabes contemporaines » (LiCArC), N°11

    The next issue of the magazine will focus on the poetics of the place in the novel produced in the Arab peninsula. Since the 1990s, with the appearance of the “spatial turn”, many theoretical studies have renewed ways of analyzing the construction of places in the novelistic text, giving them a new status within the narrative. This issue aims to analyse space in the novel from a particular point of view, that of place, a concept on which theoretical approaches agree, not space because of its multiple definitions and metaphorical uses.

    Museum Storytelling: Collectiong Sotries, Inventing Narratives

    Museography or expography are increasingly thought of in terms of narrative, storytelling, and even self-narrative. While exhibitions and museums seem to want to address the affect and the senses as much as the intellect of the visitors, to whom they wish to not only transmit knowledge as well as propose a visit experience, the stories proposed and the spaces where they are inscribed are changing under the influence of the “narrative turn” as observed since the 1990s, as well the “visual turn” and the “affective turn,” which for the last two decades have been jointly influencing the humanities. In keeping with Leslie Bedford’s assertion in The Curator. The Museum Journal that “telling stories” is “the real work of museums” (2001), this international symposium proposes to map the new expositional practices of museums — collecting, archiving, scenography, website, communication on social media, production of texts — and the types of narratives that they revive, reinvent, or bring out.

    How Environmentalist Mobilizations Shape Buildings, Cities and Landscapes

    Continuing on the set of concerns explored in issue number 11, “Thinking about Architecture through its Resources,” this issue of Cahiers de la recherche architecturale, urbaine et paysagère (CRAUP) also addresses the ways in which ecological questions affect the design of inhabited spaces, however, it seeks contributions that focus more specifically on the interactions between architectural, urban and landscape professions and citizen-led environmental mobilizations.

    The virtues masks of propaganda

    Since the armed invasion of Ukraine, we see on the screens once again the tragedy of humans struggling to survive a war. At the same time, various speeches and sites justify or invalidate this murderous action. With the help of virtuous statements, propaganda takes its place to lead us to no longer distinguish between what is said and what is done, between what is true and what is false and lying. Virtues are displayed as being at the base of these actions, as supreme values which oblige us to go “towards the good, towards one’s duty, to conform to a moral, religious ideal [...] despite the obstacles” encountered that must be destroyed at all costs. In this way, a doctrine is put forward as an “honourable” logic. This “mass communication strategy [is] aimed at influencing the opinion and actions of individuals or groups through biased information” (Augé, 2007, p. 12) and partial truths. It eliminates in advance all debate and historical contextualization. This simulacrum of information proceeds by omission of certain data and misinformation being often rooted or developed in political correctness.

    The art press today, towards a reconfiguration of a media genre ?

    La presse culturelle actuelle recouvre des formats extrêmement divers : elle peut être une revue de critique d’art ou d’histoire de l’art, une revue généraliste ou plus pointue, un guide culturel ou un magazine qui traite de l’actualité par le prisme de l’art ou encore une revue consacrée à un art en particulier. Tout ceci sans compter l’incroyable variété de la presse culturelle en ligne, rassemblant des blogs amateurs, des podcasts mais aussi des revues numériques. Ce colloque international a pour ambition d’embrasser cette diversité et entend mettre en évidence la manière dont les médias – traditionnels et en ligne – portent un regard sur les arts plastiques, les arts vivants, l’architecture, le design graphique, le cinéma, la littérature, la musique ou encore le patrimoine.

    Perspective : actualité en histoire de l’art, n° 2023-2

    The journal Perspective : actualité en histoire de l'art will explore, in its 2022 – 2 issue, the history and historiography of Fashion(s). Two complementary definitions of fashion emerge and these underlie the two approaches that this issue of Perspective seeks to develop: the first aims to determine formal changes in dress and variations in the laws of appearances, while the second conceives of a single, cyclical renewal of taste that inspires customs and thus goes far beyond items of clothing and their accessories.

    Persistence of Travelling Cinema Throughout the Twentieth Century

    This workshop will explore travelling cinema practises on a global scale in their historical, material and cultural diversity and will look at the ways in which they interfere with the communal identities of audiences. How communities – understood as porous, linguistic, ethnic, religious groups, crossed by various social and cultural dynamics – structured travelling cinema audiences and, conversely, how travelling cinema screening venues created, reinforced or perturbed community identities? The time span adopted goes from the 1920s to the end of the 20th century, up to the moment when television got rooted in the daily spectatorial practices and the VCR player developed (a point in time that differs according to local media histories).
