Colloque – Lost in Renaissance

Colloque organisé par Renaud ADAM (LE STUDIUM/CESR/ULiège/Transitions) et Chiara LASTRAIOLI (CESR)

Titre: Lost in Renaissance

Dates:  20 au 21 septembre 2018

Lieu: Tours, Centre d’Études Supérieures de la Renaissance


The debate about the concept of Renaissance is certainly old, but has met for some years now a certain revival with questions relating to its temporality, particularly in France, following questions from Patrick Boucheron on the duration of a « short long medieval period » beginning in the 12th-13th centuries and ending in the 16th century. One can also point to Jacques Le Goff’s essay entitled Faut-il vraiment découper l’histoire en tranches? (Paris, Seuil, 2014) who defended the thesis that the Renaissance would not represent a particular period, but that it would be the last rebirth of a long medieval period that would end in the mid-18th century. Regardless of whether or not one adheres to this demonstration, the great medievalist nevertheless has the merit of questioning the relevance of the concept of periodization of history and, more specifically, that of the Renaissance chrononym.

With the Lost in Renaissance symposium, we would like to explore this period by reversing the paradigm that defines it. Indeed, if the scientific community agrees to characterize the Renaissance as the time of rediscovery of Antiquity, we would like to explore it through the prism of disappearance. The aim is not to draw up a list of the different points of rupture with previous times, but rather to concentrate on the losses encountered by Europe’s intellectual, literary, artistic and material heritage during the 15th-17th centuries as a result of the great religious, political, cultural and technical upheavals that affected this territory. The angle of approach chosen for this colloquium is that of the book, considered in its materiality or for its content as a witness, victim or vector of the offenses made against the heritage during the Renaissance.

The Bruegel Success StoryCreative Process, Imitation, Emulation, Workshop Organization and Business Strategies

The Bruegel dynasty, defined here as Pieter Bruegel the Elder and his artistic progeny, traded on its success for more than a century. Recent new hypotheses on the creative process and the chronology of the output of the family’s founder as well as an increasing interest in the careers and artistic production of the members of the second and third generations encourage further inquiry and reassessment.

Within the same family, creative genius inspired emulation, imitation and repetition. The careers led by the different members of the Bruegel dynasty, their working methods, the transmission of skills, the passing-down of models, workshop organization and in certain cases, large-scale production, collaboration within and outside the workshop, the role of patrons and the art market are among the many fascinating themes that are open for investigation.

Although priority will be given to technical studies, new biographical data, especially on lesser-known members of the family, will also be highly welcomed. Other proposals will be considered if they offer new insights into the interpretation and reception of works by members of the Bruegel dynasty. These could include studies on sixteenth and seventeenth-century artists influenced by the Bruegel tradition.

The language of the symposium is English.

CFP – Central Governments and the Resolution of Maritime Conflicts, 1200–1600

Appel à contributions pour un colloque organisé par l’ Instituto de Estudos Medievais (IEM) de la FCSH-Nova University of Lisbon, dans le cadre du projet de recherche international “Maritime Conflict Management in Atlantic Europe, 1200-1600” (NWO, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, U. Leiden).

Titre: Central Governments and the Resolution of Maritime Conflicts, 1200–1600

Dates de l’événement: 25-26 octobre 2018

Date limite de l’appel: 15 juin 2018

Lieu: Portugal, Lisbonne


In the Middle Ages, maritime conflict has developed hand in hand with international trade. Over time, specific institutions were established to address disputes arising from violence or mishap at sea and in coastal areas. Recent historiography emphasises that late-medieval merchants, together with consuetudinary law and common legal practices, relied on the legal autonomy of municipal governments to resolve maritime and commercial conflicts. For highly urbanised areas like the Low Countries, it has been argued that urban legal autonomy played a decisive role in inter-urban competition to attract foreign merchants, thus stimulating economic growth in the most successful cities.

However, in other regions of Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula and in England for instance, the situation was different. Certain cities – like Lisbon and London – rose to dominance without facing competition from other cities. Some of these cities were highly dependent, from a judicial standpoint, from the crown’s intricate bureaucracy. So, how were maritime conflicts resolved in port cities under the authority and control of central governments or the crown? And how to explain that places not involved in urban competition, which sometimes lacked autonomy in judicial matters, could economically expand? In addition, the role of central governments in highly urbanised regions, including the Italian city states and the Low Countries, will also be discussed from the perspective of maritime conflict management. This seminar on Central Governments and the Resolution of Maritime Conflicts, 1200–1600 aims at exploring these questions in a broad, comparative perspective, by looking at how disputes were managed and settled both in Atlantic Europe, more specifically in the Iberian Peninsula, and around the Mediterranean in the later Middle Ages. The seminar will include invited keynote presentations by European scholars. The full programme will soon be published online.
