CALL FOR PAPERS Image and words in exile

CALL FOR PAPERS
International Conference
Images and words in exile
Avignon and Italy in the first half of the 14th century
(1310-1352)
Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut
Florence – Avignon, Thursday 7 – Monday 11 april 2011
Scientific Coordination: Elisa Brilli, Laura Fenelli, Gerhard Wolf
Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz ? Max-Planck-Institut
At the start of the fourteenth century, far-reaching political events rapidly changed the set-up of the Mediterranean basin and together distorted the Ordo universalis through which the material and symbolic space of Christianitas had, for centuries, been understood.
While the topos of the Avignon papacy, or ?Babylonian Captivity?, progressively took hold and Rome was increasingly portrayed as the new abandoned Jerusalem, the court of Avignon offered the opportunity for a political, cultural and artistic experimentation. The increasing use of the political tool of banishment, the proliferation of accusations of heresy, the bitterly contested quaestio de paupertate and, from a mystic-theological perspective, the quaestio de visione beatifica, are ones of the ways in which the new Christianity attempted, on different scales, to redefine its identity though exclusion practices.
On a different level, self-exclusion, pursued or accepted, is a rediscovered path for self-affirmation. We need only think about, to give two examples, the new forms of eremitism and Dante’s Commedia, according to some the first modern work of the Exilliteratur for the role accorded to the state of exile in constructing the figure of its author.
Exile, a mental image that has always been linked to the period of Avignon papacy, is the lens through which this interdisciplinary Conference aims to interpret the first half of the 14th century, from Henry VII’s imperial expedition which came to an unexpected end with his death at the gate of Siena, the moment when the irreversible nature of the Papal Curia’s transfer to France (1309-1313) became clear, up until the end of the papacy of Clement VI (1352).
Among the desired research axes are:
An analysis of the literary and artistic representations and practices of judicial-political exile; the “ban” and relative rituals; defamatory painting, etc; literary and artistic representations and practices and exile understood as expulsion from Christian society (excommunication, censorship, inquisition, changes in the treatment of magical objects). An analysis of the ways and of the artistic representation of forms of self-exile and self-exclusion from society: quaestio de paupertate, mysticism, monasticism and new forms of hermetism, semi-heretical trends. An analysis of changes in the representation of exile as a worldly “pilgrimage” and the relationship between the worldly life as a place of exile and the hereafter: funerary art and liturgy, representation of the hereafter, quaestio de visione beatifica. The semantic history of the term exile in Latin and in the Romance languages between the 13th and 14th centuries. Mythography of the Avignon exile and, likewise, Roman mythography in fourteenth-century texts and images. An analysis of changes in the cultural customs and representations of mobility, both of objects, artistic products and streams of thought as well as individuals and social and ethnic groups. Theoretical reflections on the paradox of representations of the state of exile as a place/non-place.
Preference will be given to proposals that, for each problematic axis mentioned or others that are put forward, examine the specificity of the historical phase taken into consideration. We shall also welcome papers enlivened by a two-fold examination, both inside and out, of the Avignon context.
The conference will take place in two distinct locations, in Florence and in Avignon. The organization will take care of the transfer from one location to another. When presenting their applications, candidates are kindly asked to state their availability to participate in both parts of the conference.
Proposals (max 2500 characters) together with a CV (max 3 pages), should be sent by the 10th of November 2010 to the following email addresses:

N’hésitez donc pas à proposer vos textes à la revue. Aquitania s’engage en effet à publier rapidement vos travaux, après leur acceptation par un comité de lecture. Ceci sous-entend un respect strict des délais. Deux comités de lecture se réuniront chaque année, l’un à la fin du mois de février, le second à la mi-juin. Afin de permettre au comité de se prononcer, vos travaux, en deux exemplaires, devront parvenir au secrétariat d’Aquitania au plus tard le 31 janvier pour un examen au comité de lecture de février et au plus tard le 15 mai pour un examen au comité de lecture de la mi-juin.

Religion and the Body

Religion and the Body
12th International Spring School on Ancient Religions – 27-31 Mars 2011
Appel à contributions
Date limite : 30 novembre 2010
 
Universität Erfurt
Kolleg-Forschergruppe ?Religiöse Individualisierung in historischer Perspektive“

Charlotte Fonrobert (Stanford) ? Richard Gordon ? Annette Hupfloher (Erfurt) ?
Eric Rebillard (Cornell/Erfurt) ? Jörg Rüpke (Erfurt) ?

Religious practice is deeply involved with the body. Frequently, religious gestures and rituals use body language and intensify bodily experiences. Amulets are carried on the skin, making divine protection bodily perceptible. Sacrifices are concluded by banquets, bringing media of religious communication into one’s own body. Gods, too, have bodies, which might be touched, fed, anointed. The seminar will touch upon such general features. Furthermore, it will concentrate on forms of intensification: the permanent use of the body as a medium of communication with the divine in the form of askesis; the construction (and deconstruction) of the body and its qualities ? gender, youth ? in specific rituals, the interpretation of bodies as media of divine messages. Concepts of purity might transform everyday behaviour and can help to draw boundary lines between ethnic and religious groups. Finally, the body itself, its health, is a specific concern of religious practices, in daily life as in specific cults and trans-regional healing sanctuaries.

 The seminar will offer an overview over such phenomena, paying special attention to the development of specific Jewish or Christian forms. It will analyze archaeological as well as textual sources from Classical Greece into late antique Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism. Lectures and seminars will help to clarify ancient and modern concepts as to critically discuss importance evidence and long-term developments. The work will include the discussion of papers and texts (distributed in advance). We will also be analyzing sources in small groups.
M.A., Ph.D. and post-doctoral students from the disciplines of Classics (including its various sub-disciplines), Religious Studies, Ancient Judaism, and Theology are invited to participate. The maximum number of participants is 25. The course will be conducted in English; the knowledge of Latin and Greek is desirable. Participants can present their own research projects, if related to the general topic. Please, add a short summary of your topic to your application.

Please apply via email by 30th November, 2010, supplying also a brief CV with your application. Confirmation will be sent by mid-December, to be followed by a reader including primary texts and some secondary literature by the end of January. There will be a participation fee of 50 EURO covering the costs of the reader, coffee breaks etc. Inexpensive accommodation is available, and can be booked by the organizers, if required.
