    En el laberinto cortesano

    Poder, arte e identidad en tiempos del duque de Lerma

    En 2025 tendrá lugar el cuarto centenario del fallecimiento de Francisco Gómez de Sandoval y Rojas, I duque de Lerma, constituyendo esta efeméride una oportunidad para re­flexionar sobre su figura y su tiempo. Lerma es, sin duda, una de las personalidades más fascinantes del rico y sugestivo panorama del Siglo de Oro español, tan compleja como controvertida y cuya lectura exige una perspectiva multifocal que permita acercarnos a su poliédrica personalidad.

    Le Siècle d’or espagnol et ses usages publicitaires

    Esta jornada de estudios, respaldada por el Centre de Recherche sur les Littératures et la Sociopoétique (CELIS) de la Université Clermont Auvergne, tiene como meta el análisis de una relación que aún no se ha explorado a fondo, la que se teje entre la publicidad y el Siglo de Oro español (entendido en sus límites cronológicos más amplios).

    Climate Change and Human-Environment Interaction in the Caucasus

    Geo-bio-archeological and literary perspectives

    Joining forces between scientists of different disciplines and countries in order to register the various data about the human interaction with the environment in moments of crisis throughout history, should help us to prepare solutions for this near future. For a proper estimation of the whole chain of (probably catastrophic) events which could affect a country like Georgia, land of the Golden Fleece, we need to consider the whole circuit of the peak water, from the melting glaciers to the high mountain lakes, the river basins, their deltas and the sea. The climatic, geomorphologic, ecologic modellings must be related with ideas from arts and humanities as well as social sciences, in the longue durée, in order to anticipate the societal changes of the next generation. Based on our previous research on the geohistory and geobio-archaeology of the Black Sea, the Colchis lowlands, on rivers – including the mythical Phasis – and lakes, this meeting is intended as a kick-off for future international and interdisciplinary collaborations.

    Visual Dramaturgies (1500-1800)

    Scenography, Costumes and Movement on Early Modern Stages

    The interest of researchers in the visual – and material – aspects of Early modern theatre has increased in the last decade. In addition to the rather developed histories of scenography and dance, an increasing number of publications on the topic of costume, lighting and historical acting have appeared, including more technical studies interested in their production and re- production (see bibliography below). The conference aims to support this trend from a transdisciplinary point of view and to reunite researchers and practitioners interested in Western performing arts (music theatre, dance, drama) of the period between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century in order to share the latest research, compare practices in various periods, countries and theatrical forms, search for convergences and perhaps even debunk some misconceptions about these aspects of theatre.

    Folger Institute Fellowships

    Long-term, short-term and artistic Fellowships (2024-2025)

    Each year the Folger Institute awards research fellowships to create a high-powered, multidisciplinary community of inquiry. This community of researchers may come from different fields, and their projects may find different kinds of expression. But our researchers share cognate interests in the history and literature, art and performance, philosophy, religion, and politics of the early modern world. The Folger Institute at the Folger Shakespeare Library offers long-term fellowships for scholarly research and short-term fellowships for both scholarly and artistic research. For the 2024-25 year, applicants may request virtual, onsite, or hybrid residencies.

    Forests in transitions

    Concepts, methods, assessments and prospective

    The symposium will address a highly topical issue: forests, in all their diversity (planted or spontaneous; urban or rural ; temperate, tropical, boreal...). They appear to be in “crisis” at a time of climate change (fires, diebacks, etc.), and their management is raising concerns (some criticize clear-cutting and the “industrialization” of forests, which is symbolized by monospecific plantations, etc.).

    Immobilizing the Gaze: the Visual Fabrication of Events in the Early Modern Period

    The aim of this conference is to build a transdisciplinary dialogue to explore how certain perceptions create certain images, convey information and its interpretation(s) around the “event”, broadly understood here as an occurrence perceived as significant, whether it is singular or part of a sequence or even a series of sequences (assassination, conclave, embassy, battle, jubilee, canonization...). The focus is placed on the early modern period because the increase of writing and the greater circulation of images and information “fixed” events on an unprecedented scale; often, these new ways of viewing events were forged thousands of kilometers away from the place where the event occurred. Rome and the Italian peninsula in the sixteenth century will be at the heart of our interrogations both as represented space(s) and as place(s) of projections onto the world.

    The public use of subordinate writings in the early modern and modern periods

    We invite contributions dedicated to the dynamics of the re-signification of subaltern writings in public space in the early modern and modern period. Ordinary writings produced by subaltern actors (popular classes, men and women, childhood) in the transition from the private to the public sphere should therefore be investigated with particular attention to the spaces used, the practices adopted, the strategies of visibility (or obscuration) chosen, the appropriations by civil society, the policies of preservation of popular memory and the pedagogical- didactic use of writings.

    Women on stage: From the backstage to the to limelight

    Women in theatre until the 19th century

    Since its origin, the History of Theatre has been built by male names. However, it is unthinkable that women have not also had an important role in this construction. Besides existing as characters, their contributions as performers, playwrights, composers, entrepreneurs, patrons, scenographers or costume designers, among a broad range of other functions, were fundamental to the development of the theatrical practice. This conference aims to recover the place of women in theatre since its origin until the 19th century, covering a wide variety of topics, which have women at their centre, either as the focus of a show or as marginal, as star or tertiary figure, as part of the audience or as producer of the cultural object. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive and transdisciplinary debate in order to rediscover the place of women in theatre in a global and historical approach.

    Translation in Early Modern Diplomacies: Between Tradition and Innovation

    The early modern period was a time of burgeoning diplomatic activity on the European continent characterized by the spread of resident diplomacy and the appearance of peace congresses. Linguistic practices were changing dramatically as well, including Latin, German and Italian progressively overshadowed by French as a pan-European medium of diplomacy. All these developments had a considerable impact on translation in diplomacy, affecting its functioning and role in various ways. We would like to adopt a transnational and interdisciplinary viewpoint and consider the subject on the basis of new primary sources in the broad context of the development of translation and the evolution of diplomacy in the early modern period.

    The musicians’ activity - work, training and health

    “Laboreal” Journal

    The characteristics of the activities that fall under the economic sector of music show a huge variety of places, schedules and work conditions, in addition to the informality of work contracts for a vast majority of musicians. Obviously, these factors interfere with the activity of preparation for music performance, with study habits, and most likely with public performance. In spite of that, the attention given to research and intervention regarding this category of workers is clearly scarce and there is not enough research to investigate the various aspects linked to performing music activities -- training, teaching and study practices, professional performance. Laboreal makes room for papers interested in the musicians’ activity, and invites researchers involved in these issues to contribute to the publication of this number.

    Matter Materiality

    Materiality, resulting from the effect produced by the properties of matter, is grasped within environments and contexts of reception that are also changing and have nothing fixed or definitive. These properties are manifested through the effects of textures, surfaces, weight, extension in space, format, gestural traces, and material effects... The concept of materiality therefore refers to the fact that the artifacts are composed of materials and, at a theoretical level, to all the processes — technical, cultural and social — that undergird the realization and the material perception of works of art. It is in this spirit that the theme chosen for the 36th CIHA congress is intended. This theme thus provides an opportunity for fruitful intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue on questions that promote a transversal perspective at the intersection of approaches and methodologies.

    The Book in Its Time: Places, Materials, Forms and Techniques

    « Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal », Number 20

    The Book is a phenomenon that combines the fascination of its manifestations of yesteryear to the current debates and practices that announce future paths and dilemmas. We propose in this call an exercise that recovers the procedures and techniques that gained body to welcome another invention, that of writing, which inscribes the history of copyists, printing typographers who moved between cities and countries in search of business, that of their emergence in monasteries, courts, universities, binder workshops and typographies, that of street vendors and that of the production and marketing circuits.

    Conviviality and Sociability in the Long Eighteenth Century: Restoration to Romanticism

    Christoph Heyl (Univ. Duisburg-Essen) and Rémy Duthille (Univ. Bordeaux-Montaigne) are continuing the long tradition of the Landau-Paris Symposia on the Eighteenth Century, welcoming both established scholars of the field and early career researchers. The symposium focuses on the literature and culture of the British Isles of the period, but it is also open to topics relating to the British colonies, France, Germany, and further afield. The conference will include a panel of emerging scholars who are working on their PhD projects or are planning to begin a PhD project in the near future.

    Sortir de l’enclos : jardins et politique(s). Histoires, expériences et perspectives franco-allemandes

    Le colloque entend aborder la question des liens entre jardins et politique(s) sous un angle spécifiquement franco-allemand. Il s’agira d’évoquer le rôle des jardins comme symboles du pouvoir politique pour leurs créateurs, mais aussi la manière dont des jardins historiques ont pu être instrumentalisés ultérieurement à des fins politiques. Il sera également question des conséquences des tracés de frontières sur les jardins historiques – de leur destruction à leur reconstruction, sans oublier les opportunités de création de parcs transfrontaliers fonctionnant comme des « ponts culturels ». L’examen de l’importance des vertus pédagogiques et éducatives du jardin permettra l’évocation de problématiques contemporaines, tout comme l’attention accordée à son potentiel sociétal comme lieu d’intégration et d’engagement citoyen.

    Diplomatic Gifts and Counter-Gifts (16th-early 20th c)

    Understandings and Misunderstandings between Britain and the Muslim East, 16th to Early 20th Century

    As symbolic commodities circulating within and across cultures, gifts offer rich and multiple perspectives on the conduct of international diplomacy and its corollary cross-cultural transactions. Taking as our focus diplomatic relations between Britain and the three Muslim systems of the Ottomans, Persians, and Mughals over a period ranging from early contacts in the 16th century to the high age of the British empire, we wish to map out the shifts of paradigms and the redefinitions of circuits of allegiance and power through objects over the longue durée.
