Appel à communications : Les premiers imprimés français et la littérature de Bourgogne (1470-1550)

Lieu : Université du Littoral – Côte d’Opale, Dunkerque

Dates : 22 et 23 octobre 2015

Date limite de réponse à l’appel : 10 septembre 2014


Conçues dans une perspective interdisciplinaire, aux confins de la littérature, de la philologie et de l’histoire du livre, ces rencontres internationales se voudraient un espace de réflexion sur la place occupée par la littérature française de Bourgogne dans l’activité éditoriale des premiers imprimeurs (1470-1550). Elles viseront tout à la fois à appréhender le rôle joué par l’imprimerie dans le rayonnement de la vaste production littéraire élaborée sous l’impulsion des Grands Ducs de Bourgogne et à apprécier dans quelle mesure les libraires-éditeurs des grandes villes du Nord contribuèrent, au tournant du Moyen Âge et de la Renaissance, à la connaissance, à la diffusion et à la transmission de la culture française. Cette problématique, à laquelle aucun colloque scientifique n’a été consacré jusqu’à ce jour, devrait permettre de la sorte de mettre en lumière l’influence décisive que les pays du Nord exercèrent sur cette véritable révolution technologique et culturelle que constitue la naissance de l’imprimerie.
