    Performance of Medieval Monophony (12th-16th centuries)

    The journal Textus & Musica seeks contributions for a conference and a special issue of the journal, which will address the performance of medieval monophonic or monodic song (liturgical, sacred, or secular). We welcome proposals that treat a wide variety of written and visual representations, from all of Europe and beyond, in the High and Late Middle Ages focussing less on the notated chant itself than on technical, pedagogical, poetic, literary, or artistic descriptions and/or representations of the practice and performance of song for one voice. Visual sources might be artistic, representational, or iconographic, but also architectural or archaeological. Written sources might include musical or textual sources in the official languages of the practiced religions or also in vernacular languages. The multiple disciplinary perspectives should each ground interpretation in concrete historical examples and case studies.

    Competing?!

    While the Paris Olympic and Paralympic games are set to begin in 2024, this international conference wishes to interrogate the history and practice of dance competitions, in connection to competitive sports events. If much has been written on competing, especially in an Olympic setting, dance has received less critical attention when it comes to its physical, artistic and social dimensions.

    Narrating the North in Contemporary Cultures

    Telling stories is inherent to the human beings, they are homo narrans (Fisher, 1984), and thus the storytelling activity participates in the structuring of his imagination. The act of telling therefore makes the apprehension of the surrounding world and of the unknown phenomena possible. While the North often represents an idealized space, it is also a geographical, cultural and historical reality where various influences converge, articulated within narrative practices. The question we wish to address during this conference is that of the specific narrative characteristics of the Nordic space in the modern and contemporary periods, vectors of a multiplication of media supports and discourses. That is to say, the reciprocal influence of a narrative genre or a medium and the images of Nordic places.

    Dining at the Castle in Europe, from Past to Present

    Beyond a better understanding of what made the refinement and the magnificence of the royal and princely tables in Europe in the past, we will examine the question of the safeguard, the transmission and the promotion of the European cultural heritage of dinner at the castle. It is both the heritage of a social practice featuring the economic or political power of European elites as well as a ritual and a ceremonial of a bygone era. Dining at the castle also corresponds to a contemporary diplomatic practice (such as the State dinners at the Château de Versailles), to a cultural and festive gastronomic experience associated with tourist practices, or even to a literary theme or an artistic and cinematographic motif which builds its imagination in European culture.

    The court escapes the city.The countryside as political asset from the Middle Ages to the early modern period

    The idea of heading off to the countryside is associated nowadays with a wish to get away from a stressful, noisy, and at times oppressive and foul-smelling urban environment, to rest in peace and quiet, in healthy surroundings, in close contact with the bounties of the natural world and animals in their “natural” habitat. Far from any anachronistic intent, applying this expression to court studies is a call to scholars to adopt interdisciplinary approaches to examine the many ways in which aristocratic circles related to and interacted with their rural environment.

    Around the Archive: Productions, Itineraries, and Social Practices

    7th Graduate Student Workshop of Center for Turkish, Ottoman, Balkan, and Central Asian Studies (CETOBaC)

    This day will focus on the issues of production, use, and circulation of primary sources in our research areas. It will allow each participant to present their work, reflect collectively, discuss how we collect, produce, and classify our archives, and deal with their interpretation. It will also question the processes of archiving and the dynamics of conservation, patrimonialization, and destruction of archives as sociopolitical issues. Finally, by taking advantage of the diversity of the cultural areas studied, we will reflect on the transmission and circulation of sources in their temporal and spatial backgrounds.

    Max Liebermann and Italy in the context of German-Italian artistic exchange from the 1860s to the 1930s

    Although Liebermann often travelled to the Netherlands and considered it his “adopted homeland”, Italy also played an important role in his artistic development. Between 1878 and 1913 the painter made at least six journeys there, established contacts with Italian artists and critics and took part in international art exhibitions. His works also found their way into Italian collections. This conference seeks to investigate German-Italian artistic exchange more broadly between the 1860s and the 1930s. and aims to highlight German-Italian cultural exchange by looking at other contemporary personalities.

    Miraculous Images in Global Perspectives

    Images are ubiquitous in the world’s religious traditions – even in those traditions in which their creation and veneration have been highly circumscribed or entirely banned. They can serve as objects or expressions of devotion, as pedagogical instruments, as markers of class or status, and as aesthetic productions in their own right. But not all images are held to be equal. In “Miraculous Images in Global Perspective”, we seek to examine in cross-cultural perspective the phenomenon of images that possess supramundane powers or abilities: to perform miracles, emit light, sweat, bleed, move about, heal, protect and at times even to destroy.

    Physical and sports activities and populism

    Interactions between two contemporary social phenomena

    L’objet de cette journée d’étude est de dresser un premier état des lieux entre activités physiques (sports, éducation physique, etc.) et populisme, à travers des exemples particulièrement significatifs (Jeux olympiques, sport de compétition, formation, etc.), de la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle jusqu’à aujourd’hui, à travers différents pays et, en particulier, l’Amérique du sud, berceau de cette « idéologie » avec la Russie. Le sport sous toutes ses formes d’expression (Jeux olympiques, sport « bourgeois », sport ouvrier, etc.) sera envisagé ainsi que certaines figures révélatrices de cette orientation (Mussolini, Poutine, Orban, etc.).

    Engraving dance, music, science and geography

    Crafts, trades and the dissemination of knowledge in the 18th century

    The expression “danse gravée” has long designated 18th-century dance notation practices, since the diffusion of the Feuillet notation from 1700 onwards. The repertoire of engraved contredanses, published and distributed in the form of collections of small notebooks or booklets, notably from the 1760s and the Répertoire des bals de La Cuisse, is relatively well known. The place of women engravers, editors and booksellers will be widely discussed during these days. The aim is to understand how 18th century choreographic practices fit into a network of printmaking know-how, from technical engraving to semi-fine printmaking.

    Intersecting Perspectives: Iconography, Archaeological Remains and Sociocultural Practices of the Ancient Human Societies

    This internationally oriented symposium offers the opportunity to focus on ancient societies for which textual sources are limited and for which iconography can play a major role in their understanding. The aim of this meeting is to highlight the possibilities and perspectives that the iconographic approach can provide but also to consider its limits in order to establish how and to what extent it is possible to use iconography, alone or related to archaeological remains, to clarify the understanding of sociocultural practices.

    Metamorphoses and uses of the same past and formation of identities in Europe from the 14th century to the 1980s

    Shared, in competition, or antagonistic memories

    The ERC research program AGRELITA (The Reception of Ancient Greece in pre-modern French Literature and Illustrations of Manuscripts and Printed Books (1320-1550): How invented memories shaped the identity of European communities) is a transdisciplinary research program. This September 14-15, 2023, Lille conference’s ambition is to broaden the reflection on these issues of the uses of the same recomposed/reinvented past to form political and cultural identities at several levels, by opening it to other pasts (ancient, medieval, or modern ones) and to a wider period of reception and exploitation of these pasts, from the 14th Century to the 1980s, and throughout Europe.

    Media and Cultural Life in German-Occupied Western Europe (1940-1945)

    Though research on the cultural, political, social, and economic dimensions of propaganda in Nazi-occupied territories has a rich academic tradition, it is far from exhausted. There is still much research to be done in local, national, and especially transnational perspectives. There is also still significant potential for interdisciplinary investigation. This symposium will contribute to the development of new interdisciplinary and transnational research on media and cultural life in German-occupied Europe. Specific attention will be paid to the opportunities and challenges offered by the digitisation of archival collections, printed newspapers and audio-visual sources.
