    L'anachronisme à la Renaissance

    L’anachronisme se définit comme un écart temporel : un événement est antidaté, placé plus tôt qu’il n’a eu lieu. L’anachronisme renvoie donc à un décalage perçu entre le temps de l’énonciation et les réalités qui sont décrites dans les textes. Si cette notion a bénéficié de solides travaux en particulier en histoire ou en histoire de l’art, il nous semble pertinent de chercher son application dans le champ de la littérature du XVIe siècle, même si le terme n’apparaît qu’au XVIIe siècle.

    Margins (XIth-XVIIth Century)

    5th International Postgraduate Symposium of Transitions

    From History to Philology, to Art History, to Codicology, and Linguistics, the notion of margin is omnipresent. This meaningful concept, both in its literal and figurative acceptions, has remained at the heart of critical thought for a long time, as scholars have sought to reflect on its particular potentialities whilst attempting to renew approaches to their own subjects of study. Participants, starting from their specific subjects and disciplines, are invited to reflect on the notion of margin, on the similar notions of limit and border, and on the place they hold in their own research.

    L’exil au Moyen Âge, entre tourment et plénitude

    Exile in the Middle Ages: from Torment to Plenitude

    The colloquium aims to delineate the multifaceted aspects of the concept of exile in the Middle Ages - real or metaphorical exile - through the prisms of law, history, literature, and linguistics. This colloquium will offer a preliminary paradigmatic approach to a relatively unexplored territory, at least in the sphere of medieval studies. Various lines of research are therefore possible. Proposals in the following areas (and/or in interdisciplinary perspectives) are welcome: English and French literature, comparative literature, narratology, linguistics, translation, cultural studies, history, religion, and philosophy. The proposed papers may be of a theoretical, descriptive or empirical nature (essays, syntheses, case studies, comparative studies).

    Innovation and medieval communities in north west Europe (1200-1500)

    En quoi l’innovation participe-t-elle de la redéfinition des groupes sociaux entre le XIIIe et le XVIe siècle ? Inscrit dans un vaste programme de recherche, dédié à l’étude de l’innovation en contexte à la fin du Moyen Âge, l’objectif de ce premier colloque, dont le but est d’amorcer une collaboration suivie autour de ce thème de recherche, sera donc triple : Observer l’accueil de l’innovation en fonction des communautés étudiées ; repérer des stratégies de diffusion ou de refus, toujours en fonction des différentes communautés retenues ; comprendre le complexe régime de novation et de transformation dans ces sociétés pré-modernes qui, d’un côté réprouvent « la novelleté », et de l’autre répondent à des impératifs de changement.

    The Prince and the Church in Renaissance Europe

    Princely Acts as Sources for Ecclesiastical History

    Religious history of the Renaissance has, without a doubt, been one of the fields of predilection of historians in recent decades. Various sources have been used to develop the field (registers/proceedings of ecclesiastical institutions, of tribunals and of urban institutions; notarial registers; correspondences of princes and of their representatives, those of cities, of bourgeois and of theologians, diaries and memoirs of contemporaries; theological treaties; etc.).

    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.

    Music and Late Medieval European Court Cultures

    Late medieval European court cultures have traditionally been studied from a mono-disciplinary and national(ist) perspective. This has obscured much of the interplay of cultural performances that informed “courtly life”. Recent work by medievalists has routinely challenged this, but disciplinary boundaries remain strong. The MALMECC project therefore has been exploring late medieval court cultures and the role of sounds and music in courtly life across Europe in a transdisciplinary, team-based approach that brings together art history, general history, literary history, and music history. Team members explore the potential of transdisciplinary work by focusing on discrete subprojects within the chronological boundaries 1280-1450 linked to each other through shared research axes, e.g., the social condition of ecclesiastic(s at) courts, the transgenerational and transdynastic networks generated by genetic lineage and marriage, the performativity of courtly artefacts and physical as well as social spaces, and the social, linguistic and geographic mobility of court(ier)s.

    Transformation, renovation, continuity

    Medieval culture and war conference

    It is an undeniable fact of human history that war has been on many occasions and in many different historical contexts a powerful stimulus for innovations and change in culture, politicals, and thought. During periods of transition warfare had a crucial role in medieval societies. Following previous meetings in Leeds (2016), Lisbon (2017) and Brussels (2018) the 2019 Medieval Culture and War Conference will be held in Athens in the Faculty of History and Archaeology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA). The conference will focus on ‘Transformation, Renovation, and Continuity’.

    Truth and falsehood during the Renaissance

    Thanks to the coming of an information society and the rise of new media capable of spreading knowledge, our time is often described as a “post-truth” era. Could have any similar ambiguity been present in early modern Europe? Following the political and religious turmoil which marked the Renaissance period, together with the renewal of theorical and technical knowledges, a whole new range of relations between truth and falsehood was established, thus producing a crisis of the current “regimes of truth” which this PhD conference aims to investigate. This two-day long PhD conference aims to encourage new, reflections, debates and to raise new questions about the ever-complex relation of Truth / Falsehood in the Renaissance period, while focusing on their epistemological context.

    Making Sense of Latin Classics in the Middle Ages

    12th Celtic Conference in Classics (panel 11)

    The aim of this panel is to explore how medieval authors have dealt with the Classical heritage within their own cultural context. This enquiry could illustrate different degrees of exploitation of classical texts: from systematic excerption to scattered quotations naturalized in different frameworks, from the reshaping of biographies, political and philosophical treatises to the reuse of poetical patterns in order to convey new values. Making sense always implies a multiple perspective. The goal of this panel is to encourage the interaction between different points of view – historical, philological, literary, philosophical, scientific – in order to get a better understanding of the cultural background through which the Classics had to pass before reaching us.

    The paths of humanism: professional mobility and cultural expansion during the Renaissance

    Diasporas. Circulations, migrations, histoire

    The history of humanism during the Renaissance is one of an international cultural circulation which saw the rise of “humanities studies”, born in north-central Italy at the turn of the fifteenth century, and which came to dominate other models for a large part of the Western élite during the next two centuries. If the exchange of letters and books was surely an important vector in the development of this movement, it is also important to consider this phenomenon in light of mobility, particularly the professional mobility of the learned adherents of these scholarly practices, by creating a dialogue between intellectual and social history.

    The archaeology of viniculture - methods and structues of pressing

    Les fouilles du site du jardin du presbytère à Châtenois en Alsace en révèlent, depuis 2008, de nombreux aspects à travers les découvertes mobilières et immobilières datées de la fin du Moyen Âge : sous-sol dédiés au stockage de tonneaux, bâtiment de production, matériel d’entretien et de récolte, et même une cave dîmière qui ferme le site sur son côté sud. Dans cet ensemble de structures, les vestiges d’un pressoir à balancier, découvert dans un bâtiment localisé à l’est du site fouillé, renseignent de manière très précise le processus mis en œuvre pour la production des jus. Le colloque invite les participants à échanger autour de l'archéologie récente des méthodes de pressurage, depuis la Protohistoire jusqu'à l'époque moderne, et dans un espace géographique élargi à l'Europe du Nord-Ouest.

    Re-thinking the Aristocracy in Capetian France, 987-1328

    L’aristocratie a longtemps été la pierre angulaire de nombreuses études de la médiévistique française. Les sessions tenues en 2018 à l’International Medieval Congress de Leeds et à la conférence internationale de la Haskins Society ont présenté des recherches sur l’aristocratie française dans la longue durée du royaume capétien, en mettant l’accent sur une analyse nuancée et totale, en contraste avec des discours plus anciens, fragmentées ou simplistes.

    Legal Diffusion in the Late Medieval Church

    Local Ecclesiastical Legislation, 1215-1500

    The aim of this conference is to study the diffusion, exchange, creation, transformation, and resilience of ecclesiastical norms in medieval France and its neighbors from 1215-1500, in particular across diocesan and provincial jurisdictional boundaries. The underlying research project focuses on medieval France and nearby territories (modern France, Flanders, Switzerland, northern Italy), but the concluding gathering offers an opportunity to open up the geographical field to all of Catholic Europe, in a comparative perspective.

    Construction Techniques and Writings on Architecture in Renaissance and Early Modern Europe

    Thematic issue of the journal Opus Incertum (Florence University Press)

    The 2020 issue of the open access journal Opus Incertum (Florence University Press) aims to examine, through selected case studies, the complex relationship between construction practices and architectural writings in Renaissance and early modern Europe. Situated at the crossroads of several disciplines (architectural history, history of science and technology, history of literature), the subject can be approached from different perspectives. To begin with, confrontations of texts on construction techniques with the material realities of extant buildings may reveal, for specific contexts, to what extent these texts operated as vehicles for the transmission of technical know-how, and how much weight they gave to topoi borrowed from ancient authors.

    Craftsmen and metalworking in medieval cities: 35 years later

    In honour of Professor Paul Benoit

    The symposium addresses themetallurgies of iron, copper, tin, lead and precious metals, which produced a wide variety of objects necessary for urban life at the end of the Middle Ages. The nature, volume and possible standardization of production may be studied, as well as the needs of the city, the practices and techniques of craftsmen, their knowledge and know-how. The relationships between the crafts and between the craftsmen themselves might be examined, including dependency links, pluriactivity, networks of sociability or local relationships in urban areas. The identity and regulation of these crafts, their integration into urban society, their relationship with the surrounding rural areas and with other cities may also be revisited. The symposium will be interdisciplinary in nature, promoting dialogue between historians, archaeologists and archaeometry, without excluding anthropological approaches to learning and knowledge
