Appel à contribution : « Le Mal » – 14e symposium annuel de la La Société internationale des médiévistes

Lieu : Paris

Dates : 29 juin-1er juillet 2017


Extrait : Pour son 14ème congrès annuel, l’International medieval Society-Paris lance un appel à communication sur le thème du Mal au Moyen Âge. La notion de « mal », et les tensions qu’elle révèle dans la relation intérieur/extérieur, s’inscrit dans les tendances actuelles de la recherche concernant le corps, la limite, l’altérité, etc. Le corps au Moyen Âge présente souvent les indices d’une perméabilité entre une conception morale du Mal et d’autres acceptions du terme. Une apparence monstrueuse est ainsi perçue comme l’indice de dispositions internes, et la maladie peut être vue comme le reflet de la nature maléfique de la personne souffrante. De façon générale, le Mal peut être envisagé pour lui-même, en tant qu’idéologie spécifique, et au travers d’actions, de comportements ou d’êtres particuliers. Le Mal fait son apparition dans le monde à travers des actes intentionnels et des accidents, à travers l’intervention démoniaque et dans la faiblesse et le péché de l’homme. Il prend racine dans la colère, s’exprime dans la violence, s’empare de l’ignorance, jaillit de la nature aussi bien que de l’humanité.

Appel à contribution : Communities, Imaginations and Emotions in the Medieval Mediterranean

The fifth biennial conference of the Society for the Medieval Mediterranean will take place at Ghent University from Monday 10th July to Wednesday 12th July 2017.

The theme of the conference is “Communities, Imaginations and Emotions in the Medieval Mediterranean”. We welcome papers from all disciplines that study emotions, imaginations and communities in, of and across the Medieval Mediterranean. This theme invites a variety of lines of inquiry, a number of which are suggested below. How were emotions produced, expressed and communicated? To what end were imaginations used and abused? In what ways were communities perceived and understood? What communalities and particularities are there? Which challenges do the literary, historical, archaeological and other sources pose in this respect?

Contrat : two doctoral positions within the ERC Starting Grant Project “STATE – Lordship and the Rise of the State in Western Europe, 1300-1600”

Date limite de candidature : 15 novembre 2016


Two doctoral positions (PhD studentships) are available starting 1 September 2017 on an ERC-funded research project that pursues a new interpretation of state formation in Western Europe between 1300 and 1600. Jointly-supervised at the Universities of Ghent (by prof. dr. Frederik Buylaert) and St Andrews (by dr. Justine Firnhaber-Baker), the two doctoral researchers will explore secular lordship in the fifteenth and the first half of the sixteenth century. One will focus on the French province of Normandy, and the other on Languedoc. The heuristic aim is to develop a snapshot survey of seigneuries and their owners of a part of each province, using sources preserved in the Archives nationales/Bibliothèque nationale in Paris, as well as in regional archives (travel expenses are borne by the ERC-project). The interpretative aim is to use these case studies to engage with current theories on state formation and elite formation in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe.
