    Illness as Metaphor in the Latin Middle Ages

    Leeds International Medieval Congress 2021

    The session seeks to provide a forum for scholars to reflect on the variation and functions of metaphors of illness in the Latin writing of the Middle Ages. We encourage papers that investigate how the imagery of morbus, pestilentia, gangraena etc. structured individual experience and how it shaped self-knowledge and practices of communities. We invite original contributions that critically examine the role that Latin metaphors of illness played in medieval discourse as a tool of explaining reality and as a rhetorical device used to impose specific world views.

    Around the Classics: Paratextual Frame of Latin Classics in the Middle Ages

    13th Celtic Conference in Classics

    In medieval manuscripts, a classical text is rarely copied alone. It is most often accompanied by paratextual elements that have been intentionally added to the text. Such elements come in a wide variety of formats: explanatory or complementary texts (accessus, prologues, vitae, commentaries, glosses, glossaries, etc.) images (illumination, diagrams, drawings, etc.), or elements structuring the manuscript, the text or the page (index, table of chapters, titles, division into books, chapters or paragraphs, sections, etc.). They can be transcribed at the beginning, the end, or next to the classical text, within its writing frame or in its margins.

    "Fake news". Art and information

    Inventing reality - between artistic production and historical enquiry

    Il tema delle fake news è di grande attualità e rilevanza per i mezzi e i fini con cui queste vengono messe in circolazione: esse hanno il potere di alterare la realtà e di far circolare notizie prive di fondamento.Durante la giornata di studi si indagherà la modalità in cui l’alterazione del messaggio è stata assunta come verità nella storia dell’arte, ripercorrendo l’iter del processo artistico e la conseguente creazione delle fake news.

    Materialities and devotion (5th-15th centuries)

    V Medieval Europe in motion

    The last decades have witnessed the development of studies on material culture, favouring an inter- and multidisciplinary approach. This has enabled a more cohesive reading of the way in which the medieval Man related to his material environment, manipulating, adapting and transforming it, of the uses given to the objects he produced, the meanings attributed, how he interacted with them in cognitive and affective terms.

    Different Metals, Different Needs?

    Coinage in Western and Mediterranean Europe (5th–8th centuries)

    This Study Day is focused to show the coin repertoire of the Early Middle Ages in several metals and in the different areas of Europe, and trying to establish a nexus between them up to the first decades of the eight century which leads to important changes, that will be notably accentuated with the sudden Umayyad conquest of the Iberian Peninsula and the rise of the Carolingian Empire.

    Time in the Middle Ages

    16th annual symposium of the International Medieval Society – Paris

    For its 16th annual symposium, the International Medieval Society Paris invites scholarly papers on any aspect of time in the Middle Ages. Papers may deal with the experience or exploitation of time, its reckoning or measuring, its inscription, its theorization, or the question of how or why or whether we should demarcate the “Middle Ages.” Papers focusing on historical or cultural material from medieval France or post-Roman Gaul, or on texts written in medieval French or Occitan, are particularly encouraged, but compelling papers on other material will also be considered.

    Rostros judíos del Occidente medieval

    45 semana internacional de estudios medievales de Estella

    The International Week of Medieval Studies of Estella tackles for the first time Jewish communities in the Western Middle Ages. Studies on this issue has generated a large historiographical output relating to social, cultural, economic and political life across Europe. This edition puts the focus on the profiles, the light and shade, the countenances of these communities. Starting with the history of the Jewish culture, its physical and mental integration into the medieval worlds, its presence in the lifestyle of the period and the images that were produced and still remain in the collective cultural heritage. An exercise of history and memory on the narrative of the Sephardic exile will open the sessions consecrated to the forms of integration and of exclusion of these communities and their material and cultural manifestations.

    Categorising the Church (II)

    Clerical and monastic communities in the Carolingian World (8th-10th)

    The Carolingian era has seen by many as a time when the Church became increasingly institutionalised. One of the main aspects of this development, exemplified by the series of councils held between 816 and 819, was a (re)definition of the canonical and monastic orders and the requirement for each community in the realm to comply either with the institutiones canonicorum and sanctimonialium or with the Rule of Benedict. Despite the influential works of J. Semmler or R. Schieffer, however, the real impact of these proposed reforms is still an open question, and from this perspective, the very notion of institutionalisation can also be questioned.

    Peacemaking and the Restraint of Violence in Medieval Europe (1100-1300)

    Practices, Actors and Behaviour

    In high medieval Europe, conflict took a number of different forms, from large-scale battles, such as disputes over crowns, power and lands, to more local disputes over inheritance and property. In the absence of well-developed administrative structures which could limit conflict, cultural conventions, rituals and behavioural norms evolved to moderate violence within the elite community.

    Urban monasticism: 300-1300

    Christianity emerged as an urban phenomenon, yet monasticism is more often than not presented as an escape from the sinful town into the wilderness, and as more concerned with the soul than with the body. Ascetics, however, have always had a vested interest in the city, and not only symbolically. Monasticism has been an important urban presence since Late Antiquity up to the Late Middle Ages, even if they were sometimes in competition with newer religious orders.

    Food-related professions in the Western Mediterranean

    Culinary practices and food traditions (Antiquity and the Modern Age)

    L’alimentation occupe une place majeure dans les activités des communautés, qu’elles soient l’œuvre de professionnels ou qu’elles s’insèrent dans le cadre domestique. Cette importance se traduit par la multiplicité et la diversité des processus et des savoir-faire de production, de transformation et de commercialisation des aliments. Les variations spatiales ou temporelles, séparant la production de la consommation, conduisent à interroger les modalités de ravitaillement et de commercialisation des denrées, ainsi que la saisonnalité des produits.
