    Dialogues in Antiquity: Archetypes for a Contemporary World

    Xth Conference on Classical Philology in honorem Giselle von der Walde

    The expressive wealth of dialogue presents itself in numerous artistic and intellectual ways. The encounters between emotional and aesthetic resources, pedagogical and didactic purposes, as well as between claims of objectivity and scientific rigor, are fertile ground for the transdisciplinary inquiry characteristic of classical studies. This invites a diversity and multiplicity of perspectives for contributions in relation to ancient authors and their works. Investigating the history of dialogue since Antiquity also allows us to consider it as an archetype for the exchange of opinions and ideas. This is suitable for dealing with current problems that increasingly require the willingness to negotiate and rethink ideas and convictions, empathize with the feelings of others, and build agreements based on the examination of opposing arguments and points of view.

    Tolkien and Antiquity

    Antiquities of Middle-earth

    This workshop, which will take place on June 4, 2022 in Paris, aims to study the notion of Antiquity(ies) in the work of J. R. R. Tolkien. The event is open to specialists in literature, antiquity or reception of antiquity, insofar as the aim is to reflect on the existence of ancient periods in Tolkien's legends which could present points of convergence with Greco-Roman antiquity in the broad sense, as the author could conceive it in particular.

    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 ?

    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.

    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.

    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.).

    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?

    Ex marmore antiquo sculpsit

    Engravings and the distribution of ancient reliefs in the modern era

    Œuvres sur papier multiples, reproductibles, facilement transportables et relativement peu onéreuses, les gravures constituent dès la Renaissance un vecteur privilégié de diffusion des savoirs antiquaires. De manière très précoce, dès le dernier quart du XVe siècle en Italie, les graveurs s’emparent des modèles sculptés antiques, et tout particulièrement des reliefs (Le Triomphe de Bacchus et Ariane, burin florentin, British Museum, v. 1480-1490). Les interprétations de sarcophages, de décors monumentaux ou de stèles continuent à être particulièrement prisées durant toute l’époque moderne et font l’objet de publications ponctuelles ou plus systématiques, sous la forme de gravures isolées, de recueils ou d’ouvrages scientifiques illustrés. L’objet de cette journée d’étude sera d’étudier comment l’estampe a permis de faire circuler dans toute l’Europe des images de reliefs uniques ou typiques.
