    “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.

    Cultiver dans l’Antiquité

    Édition numérique et approche pluridisciplinaire d’un corpus agronomique gréco-romain

    Cette journée d’étude permettra à l’équipe pluridisciplinaire de philologues, botanistes, historiens, archéologues et archéobotanistes du projet « Discours agronomique et pratiques agricoles dans l’Antiquité méditerranéenne : la culture des céréales et des légumineuses » (AgroCCol) de présenter le fruit de ses travaux à l’occasion de la publication officielle du site internet « Cultiver dans l’Antiquité : les céréales et les légumineuses ». Celui-ci propose l’édition numérique d’un corpus grec et latin sur les cultures de plein champ. Nous nous interrogerons sur les enjeux méthodologiques et les apports scientifiques de l’édition numérique de ce corpus technique, et sur les perspectives qu’elle offre notamment en matière d’identification des plantes cultivées dans l’Antiquité, d’ethnobotanique et d’éco-critique.

    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.

    Refocusing on Roman provincial society

    Forms of coexistence and distinction in Rome's western provinces

    L’Association pour l’archéologie romaine en Suisse (ARS) organise un colloque intitulé « La société provinciale romaine en question - Formes de coexistence et de distinction dans les provinces occidentales de Rome ». Sur ce thème longtemps réservé aux historiens et aux épigraphistes, l’archéologie pose un regard nouveau : quels indices matériels permettent l’identification de l’ordre social, tant à l’échelle du territoire, du site, que de l’individu ? C’est à ces questionnements essentiels que cette rencontre scientifique propose de répondre - ou du moins d’apporter quelques pistes de réflexion. 25 chercheuses et chercheurs originaires de Suisse, d’Allemagne, d’Autriche, de France, d’Espagne, du Royaume-Uni et des États-Unis sont attendus pour ces deux journées qui s’annoncent fructueuses.

    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...).

    “InterArtes”, 2023 - Number 3

    Today, technological advances seem to point towards the artificial creation of complex singularities. The process of artistic creation is clearly at the heart of this paradigm shift whose implications are as much aesthetic and scientific as they are ethical, political, and then legal, economic, social, environmental... The third issue of InterArtes will be devoted to critically questioning the relationship between “Artistic Creativity and Automation”, both with theoretical contributions and with essays of a historical and empirical nature.

    Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico

    V edizione

    Following the successful results of last year's series of seminars, the PhD students belonging to the Anthropology of the Ancient World curriculum of the PhD course in Classics and Archeology would like to promote a fifth cycle of seminars of the series Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico. The series is characterised by a particular interest in the different methodologies and research perspectives which represent the main fields of enquiry of anthropology of the ancient world since its first development (with the works of Gernet, Vernant and Detienne), but it also focuses on how different inter-discipliary approaches can contribute to its constant innovation. In addition, one of the main goals of this year's edition is to create a meeting point for scholarship on antiquity and contemporary debate on its reception in modern societies, underlining the cultural, social and ideological aspects which spark from the interection between present and past.

    The Antiquity and its receptions

    The Summerschool “The Antiquity and its receptions” is  open to doctoral and advanced MA students, specializing in history, art history, archaeology, philology, or any other discipline linked with the theme of the reception of Antiquity. It is international in nature and aims to establish a multilingual dialogue (French, Italian and English) between the different methodologies in use in Europe, North America and elsewhere, and thus to promote interdisciplinarity. At the same time, it plans to test these methodologies in the field, in collaboration with heritage institutions such as museums, archaeological sites, archives and libraries in Rome and Tivoli.

    Diritto e Ritualità

    The full online seminar “Diritto e Ritualità” 10-11 November 2021 will focus on questions of Greek law and ritual forms in the ancient world, investigated through the lens of anthropology. We will explore the relationship between rhetoric and law, the evidence of judicial practices in literary sources and some issues related to the analysis of specific epigraphic sources (defixiones and prayers for justice). In the second day, we will try to put some ritual forms of the ancient world into context. In particular, we will investigate the function of knucklebones in Greek sanctuaries and the relationship between the ludic dimension and the ritual one. Late antique adoratio will also be discussed in light of the most recent theories developed by Anthropology and Ritual Studies.

    Climate change and digital sound and audiovisual preservation

    IV International Congress of Digital Archives

    El cambio climático es el proceso que pone en riesgo la vida, la salud y el desarrollo de las naciones. De acuerdo con la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, en muchos países las temperaturas han presentado niveles máximos sin precedentes, los niveles de gases de efecto invernadero están aumentando, el nivel del mar está subiendo y los desastres naturales se agravan. Las soluciones encaminadas a crear economías verdes y sustentables van acompañadas de cambios en diferentes aspectos de la actividad humana. La investigación científica ocupa un espacio relevante y necesario para formular aportaciones que minimicen el impacto del cambio climático en la sociedad. Uno de los ámbitos poco estudiados, con incidencia en el cambio climático, es el relativo a los archivos digitales sonoros y audiovisuales. No obstante que la preservación digital de archivos sonoros y audiovisuales genera de forma constante basura tecnológica y requiere del uso continuo de energía.

    Tradition, Persistence, and Innovation in Artistic Craftsmanship and in Building and Architectural Production between the Napoleonic Era and the Restoration

    Milan in a European Context

    With Milan proclaimed first the capital of the Cisalpine Republic in 1797 (from 1802, Italian Republic) and then in 1805 the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, the city was challenged to reconsider and rebuild its image and its urban spaces in order to adapt them to its new role. Part of a network of capitals responding to a single central power, both political and cultural, Milan experienced a period that featured significant incentives for public and private architectural building works and for the transformation of urban spaces. These conditions make the Lombard capital a privileged context in which to investigate the multiple forms of organization of artisanal and artistic work, as well as the circulation of people and materials. The seminar aims to reflect on the dialectic between the new status quo and the centuries-old stratified traditions inherent to the Milanese territory, also taking into consideration the Restoration period, when, in the new political-administrative structure of the Lombard-Veneto Kingdom, Milan, while remaining the capital, found itself in a new context that established a variety of artistic geographies.

    Doing with Delphy

    Nouvelles questions féministes journal, special issue

    Pionnière et inspiratrice d’un féminisme matérialiste toujours vivant parce qu’en débats, Christine Delphy continue d’y occuper une place prépondérante à de multiples égards. En tant que théoricienne dont les idées restent incisives et indispensables pour qui veut penser le monde en féministe. Mais aussi, et autant, en tant que militante ayant engagé une lutte radicale contre le patriarcat. Ce numéro hors-série de Nouvelles questions féministes (NQF) cherche à relayer la vitalité et l’actualité de l’œuvre de Christine Delphy. Cela, en invitant des auteur·e·s et militant·e·s féministes à présenter des textes illustrant comment elles et ils s’approprient ou se sont appropriés ses travaux. Dans une perspective radicale, chère à Delphy, notre appel ne se limite pas à l’influence de son œuvre dans le champ académique : il vise à recueillir des contributions portant sur la manière dont les textes ou les interventions de Delphy enrichissent et questionnent de nos jours la réflexion scientifique comme l’action militante, mais aussi les postures personnelles.
