    Clothing the soul

    Dress metaphors of the body in Antiquity

    Il s’agira de s’intéresser aux métaphores vestimentaires antiques en s’interrogeant à la fois sur les motivations de cet emploi métaphorique et sur les manières dont la métaphore est employée. Dans la lignée des travaux métaphorologiques, ouverts par H. Blumenberg, on pourra se demander si cette métaphore vestimentaire pour parler du corps dans ses rapports à l’âme est toujours la même, ou s’il convient au contraire d’en étudier l’historicité. On s’interrogera ainsi sur ce que dit la métaphore vestimentaire de la conceptualisation du rapport entre le corps et l’âme à chaque fois qu’elle est employée. Quelle est la fonction didactique ou heuristique de cette métaphore ? Comment cette métaphore évolue-t-elle et prend-t-elle un sens différent dans des contextes philosophiques et littéraires variés d’Homère à Augustin d’Hippone ?

    Ancient forms of grouped habitat in mountain zones: the case of the Gauls and peripheral regions

    Cette rencontre interrogera, entre autre, l’organisation spatiale des territoires de moyenne montagne et de leur structuration par les agglomérations (interfaces entre plaines et montagnes) durant l’Antiquité. Bien évidemment, une telle approche territoriale ne devra pas oublier que les agglomérations ne sont pas les seules formes d’habitat dans les montagnes et leur relation avec les sanctuaires et les habitats ruraux devront aussi être pris en compte.

    Villages and Hamlets in Gaul and neighbouring areas between the La Tène period and the end of the Roman period (3rd century BC - 6th century AD)

    Current research on archaeology and history of rural Roman Gaul

    Le XVe colloque consacré aux actualités de la recherche sur l’archéologie et l’histoire rurales de la Gaule romaine (AGER) permettra d’aborder un thème de recherche encore peu traité pour la période romaine en Gaule : les formes de l’habitat rural gallo-romain. Ce colloque a pour but de poser les premiers jalons de l’étude des villages et hameaux en Gaule. De nombreuses questions se posent sur ce type d’habitat qui doit entrer en considération dans l’approche du paysage rural antique. Il s’agit aussi de compléter le panorama diversifié des formes d’habitat et de comprendre davantage la diversité des systèmes de peuplement et de production.

    In-betweenness: in search of intermediaries

    After more than a century of research, the humanities have developed increasingly refined concepts and tools to identify the characteristics of cultural exchange. Since the creation of the diffusionist paradigm, which often tried to study the circulation of cultural objects without specifically identifying the actors, numerous works have made it possible to dissect the transfer processes and the individuals involved. Concepts and tools inherited from anthropology and ethnology such as acculturation, cultural transfers, métissage, middle ground or hybridization have attempted to account for the phenomena resulting from intercultural exchanges. However, only more recently has attention been paid to intermediaries and their role in the various processes.

    Nero and Hadrian

    The arts in power

    Nero and Hadrian: two emperors united by a passion for the arts; both reformers in the artistic and also, in particular, in the architectural and administrative spheres. Two characters, the first much discussed, the second much less. Recent critics have portrayed them in an innovative and pioneering light, at least from a purely cultural point of view.

    Untranslatables of Antiquity: from Philosophy to Historical Anthropology

    Translating is an act of opening oneself, mutual exploration and intercommunication between two cultures, allowing for the transfer of a semantic concept from a language to another. Moreover, this process has to meet several needs and practices, both different and contradictory. Thus, whatever it is the principle applied in the process, resulting in a translation either very close to its original source [Berman 1984] or adjusted to the rules of the target language [Eco 2007], translating demands to adapt and transform the semantic core. Once a word, or a category of words, is transferred from a linguistic system to another, this process brings about a semantic shift which makes the word itself an “untranslatable”. These “untranslatable” words can be provided by different sources, such as manuscript transmission, epigraphy, numismatic and modern literatures.

    The archaeology of buildings

    Fifth scientific technical and scientific seminar at the National Institute for Preventative Archaeological Research (Inrap)

    Le souhait de l’Inrap est de promouvoir, par ce séminaire, la méthode et d’affirmer qu’elle a toute sa place dans le dispositif de l’archéologie préventive. Il s’agit également de mettre en lumière les compétences des archéologues du préventif et de leur permettre de réfléchir, collégialement, sur l’évolution des protocoles de terrain, les actions de sensibilisation ou de formation à entreprendre et la nécessité de diffuser les résultats. Enfin, ces rencontres seront l’occasion d’aborder la multiplicité des approches méthodologiques : études du lapidaire, des matériaux de constructions et de l’architecture antique, méthodes de relevés et de datations, photogrammétrie, etc.

    Civil vulnerabilities: care of the city through the prism of the body

    Cet événement se propose d’apprécier l’évolution de la Cité et des cités de la Méditerranée antique sur une période longue (VIIIe siècle av. n. è. – VIe siècle n. è.) dans leur rapport aux arts de la santé, entendus dans une acception extensive. Pareille manifestation est tout à la fois inscrite dans l’actualité de la recherche en histoire antique et aussi bien limitée qu’encouragée par l’actualité elle-même.

    Revivals of ancient transgression

    Modern and contemporary times

    During the first three workshops organised by the junior research team TAntALE, the study of transgression took place within the chronological boundaries of Antiquity: definition of the concept of transgression, analysis of the transgressive figures of Antiquity and how they put the norms of the city to the test, individually or collectively. In this logic, the international conference of November 2020 focused on the place of transgression in the construction of political power. For the fourth and final workshop, we will go beyond these chronological limits and study the phenomena of transgression in the relationship that authors, artists and later societies have with Antiquity. The proposals will have to fall within the period between the mid-14th and 21st centuries.

    Classicamente. Dialoghi Senesi sul Mondo Antico

    The junior researchers and PhD students from the Anthropology of the ancient world curriculum of the PhD course in Classics and Archeology are promoting the fourth edition of the seminar cycle Classicamente. Dialoghi Senesi sul Mondo Antico. This year's edition will focus on the varied methodologies and hermeneutical perspectives which represent the scientific guidelines followed by scholars in anthropology of the ancient world ever since its development. It will also focus on those approaches that today contribute to a constant enrichment and renovation of this field of study. Our goal is to offer to all those who take part the chance to present their work, be it the result of long research or elements of a work in progress, in an enviroment open to discussion between different perspectives (anthropological, philological, historical, archeological, semiotic etc.).

    Death and the Societes of Late Antiquity

    New methods, new questions ?

    Late Antiquity is marked by its political, social, economic, and cultural evolutions. This period of major societal changes initially saw the coexistence of Roman institutions and new social structures, especially those emerging from the early Christian religion. The societies of Late Antiquity are therefore characterized by a mosaic of political, social, and cultural entities, both in the heart of the Empire's provinces and on their borders.

    Transmission of knowledge on fish and aquatic animals, texts and images

    Antiquity, Middle Ages, 16th century

    The conference Transmission of knowledge on fish and aquatic animals, texts and images (Antiquity, Middle Ages, 16th century) will be the closing event of GDRI Zoomathia, which ends at the end of 2021.

    Denunciation or dissimulation? Medical error in Antiquity and the Middle Ages

    Greece, Rome, Egypt, Near-East

    Mediator, Depakine, Thalidomides, contaminated blood, breast implants... health scandals over the past fifty years have regularly focused general attention on the problem of medical risk. They have raised many questions, abundantly relayed by the different media, showing us how crucial and complex the question of medical error is: where did the error come from? But before becoming a scandal, medical error has also been an inherent risk in the practice of medicine, since its very beginning. A mistake in diagnosis, prognosis or therapy, no matter how small, can have disastrous consequences for the doctor and the patient if not detected and corrected. Far from the huge media coverage of current health scandals, what is the status of medical error in ancient medicines and what are its issues?
