    Turpin and the Carolingian epic: the intersection between cultures

    Le colloque s’articulera autour de deux axes : la question de l’intertextualité, particulièrement accentuée dans la tradition de l’Historia Turpini, et l’imbrication des cultures, qui voit dans la tradition carolingienne un terrain privilégié de confrontation. À côté de problèmes d’ordre ecdotique, la réflexion touchera aux thèmes suivants : la contamination des traditions littéraires et des cultures, les personnages et les lieux, l’iconographie, les croisements entre l’épopée carolingienne et les pélerinages, les manières dont la matière a été remaniée au fil du temps.

    The Fear of Shrinking Numbers

    Democracy, Demography and the East-West Divide in Europe

    Electing a government is what people do in a democracy, but governments also tend to choose the people who will elect them. They do it by designing citizenship laws and electoral laws, by crafting immigration regimes and by employing practices like gerrymandering and voters’ suppression. This four lectures series discusses the ways in which the shrinking ethnocultural majorities in the European Union (EU) member states try to preserve their power and identity in the face of population decline and increasing migration.

    Cultural and market mediations: dangerous digital liaisons?

    The continuous diffusion of digital technology leads to new cultural and market mediations through new media to capture and enhance the attention of the public (Citton, 2014). In the perspective of exploratory conventions, and innovations, the axes developed here intend to think about the novel forms, which guide the concordances as oppositions between the designers, the actors and the receivers of these digital projections. This call for paper is dedicated to understanding and developing interdisciplinary cultural and market mediations approaches. It aims at understanding their dangerous digital liaisons through online advertising and ethics, through the prism of communication and marketing dangerous digital creation, and dangerous digital staging of the territory.

    Imaginary places, real territories

    Territorial imagery and the creation of Dutch identities (1579-1702)

    From the creation of a federal State in 1579 to the temporary disappearance of the Stadholderate in 1702, what role did the visual culture play in the political assertion of a national territory? How does the artist’s gaze on the territory, local or foreign, real or imagined, allows us to understand this rhetoric? How exactly are fantasized or real elements of foreign places integrated in a local visual discourse? What do these images reveal of the public who commissions, buys and looks at them? Within the process of national and territorial construction, how are these territorial perspectives integrated and part of the enrichment of the Dutch identity narrative? Considering the variety of these issues, this symposium aims to shed light on the ways in which Dutch depictions of national and transnational territories participated in the formulation of a shared identity.

    Between Angels and Demons: supernatural beings in the Middle Ages and the early modern period

Les représentations des acolytes de la divinité et des compagnons du diable au sein de la philosophie, de la théologie, de la littérature, des arts, de l’histoire et de la musique nous éclairent aussi sur les échanges interculturels médiévaux. Les pistes d’investigation sont envisageables selon différentes perspectives méthodologiques, et visent à nourrir l'interdisciplinarité de ces journées d’étude.

    Napoleon’s Legacy in Culture, Art, and Heritage, 1821–2021

    Napoleon Bonaparte died exactly two hundred years ago on a small island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. He had spent the last six years of his life in exile on St Helena, removed from political and military power, in the unusual situation of being able to try to shape and preserve his own posthumous legacy. He was, in a way, phenomenally successful. Napoleon is an instantly recognisable name to this day, and despite growing efforts in recent years to critically revise his reputation and highlight his role in issues such as the reinstatement of slavery, he has largely managed to escape the same level of historical censure as other infamous military dictators. This is perhaps partly because his name has become such an adaptable brand, standing for an entire era of people, places, and events, as well as a full two centuries’ worth of art, craft, and consumer commodities. While other events marking the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death have weighed his contributions to legislative, political, and military reform, less work has been done to confront his vast material, visual, and cultural legacy. This workshop therefore brings together researchers and museum and heritage professionals to reflect on the enduring material and visual legacy of Napoleon, what our interpretation and use of it means for the future, as well as how it affects our understanding of the past.

    New Worlds, Old Worlds, Lost Worlds

    Picturing Prehistory in American Art and Visual Culture

    Atlantis, pre-Columbian “Mound Builders,” cave men locked in combat with T. Rex — visions of ancient, ruined, or “lost” worlds on a spectrum between fact and fantasy have long fascinated American artists and producers of visual culture. How have U.S. artists and image makers depicted prehistory, and to what ends? How have visualizations of prehistory from the eighteenth century to 1980 contributed to new conceptualizations of culture, time, and space? For this two-day conference, we invite papers examining images of prehistory, in different media and in both artistic and nonartistic contexts.
