Publication – Life Inside the Cloister Understanding Monastic Architecture: Tradition, Reformation, Adaptive Reuse

Thomas Coomans, Life Inside the Cloister. Understanding Monastic Architecture: Tradition, Reformation, Adaptive Reuse, Leuven, Leuven University Press, 2018.

ISBN: 9789462701434

Date de publication: mai 2018


Sacred architecture as reality and metaphor in secularised Western society
Christian monasteries and convents, built throughout Europe for the best part of 1,500 years, are now at a crossroads. This study attempts to understand the sacred architecture of monasteries as a process of the tangible and symbolic organisation of space and time for religious communities. Despite the weight of seemingly immutable monastic tradition, architecture has contributed to developing specific religious identities and played a fundamental part in the reformation of different forms of religious life according to the changing needs of society. The cloister is the focal point of this book because it is both architecture, a physically built reality, and a metaphor for the religious life that takes place within it. Life Inside the Cloister also addresses the afterlife and heritagisation of monastic architecture in secularised Western society.

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.

CFP – Migration and Gender : relationships, economic resources and institutions in historical perspective (15th-20th centuries)

Appel à contribution pour un atelier organisé par l’Université de Cambridge

Titre:  Migration and Gender : relationships, economic resources and institutions in historical perspective (15th-20th centuries)

Date de l’événement: 8-10 novembre 2018

Date limite de l’appel: 15 juillet 2018

Lieu: University of Cambridge (UK)

Appel détaillé:

Migration and mobility were common experiences among individuals of the past. If for a long while the young male has epitomised “the migrant”, since the 1980s, a new wave of studies pointed out the relevance of women. In addition, the notion of gender has called into question traditional female and male roles. Nevertheless, many key issues of the history of migration have not been considered according to a gendered perspective, and in turn, many crucial topics for gender history have been overlooked when studying migrants and mobile people.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers working on migration according to a gendered perspective and to a micro-historical perspective from the late Middle Ages to the early twenty century. Its purpose is to encourage a more incisive dialogue between migration studies and gender studies, taking into account the fact that female and male roles were, and are, the result of social, cultural and economic construction. Together with gender, proposals might consider how marital status, age and ethnicity shaped
migration and settlement patterns in specific economic, cultural and political contexts.

In this workshop, migration is not exclusively understood as a lineal process, but also as result of multiple intermediary steps. At the same time, the achievement of permanent settlement was not necessarily the (first) aim of the movement. For all these historiographical questions, a gendered approach has not yet been sufficiently developed: we invite therefore papers taking into account all kinds of mobility and migration, i.e. temporary or seasonal mobility, economic, political or religious migration,domestic/international migration and mobility between the town and its outskirts.

A first group of questions concerns the material and economic resources mobilised by migrants. Proposals might investigate what means women and men used to move and settle down or might study how they manage to maintain – or abandon – assets and/or relationships in their birth community. From another point of view we need to know more about places where newcomers met other people and/or were able to find useful information (i.e. inns, taverns, lodging in private houses etc.).

A second bundle of questions concerns the nature and the extension of social resources newcomers were able to mobilise, to build and to use in migration and/or settlement paths or, at least, during their temporarily stay in the town. Research might investigate how these ties – made up by professional intermediaries, individuals or institutions – influenced, successfully or not, the daily life, the research for a job or a house, the access to credit networks, to poor relief or to other urban resources etc…

A third bundle of questions concerns laws and customs, and more generally authorities and institutions (guilds, charity institutions, citizenship etc…) monitoring and regulating the presence of newcomers. Proposals might consider whether these norms existed, whether they had a gendered impact on the behaviour of migrants, and what where the factors at stake (marital status, age, specific economic sectors etc…).
Please submit an abstract in English (500 words maximum) to
by 15th July 2018 with MIGRATION AND GENDER WORKSHOP 2018 in the subject line.

The selected authors will be required to present their research in a 20 minutes presentation. The language of  the workshop is English.
After the workshop a selection of papers will be considered for publication. Some funds will be available for the translation in English of the selected articles.
Accommodation in Cambridge, a dinner and refreshments will be provided by the organisation. Limited funds for travel will be available.
This workshop benefits of funds from the Horizon European Union’s research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement N. 703737.

Journée d’étude – La vraisemblance

Journée d’étude du GEMCA

Titre: La vraisemblance

Date: 12 juin 2018

Lieu : Louvain-la-Neuve, Collège Erasme, Salle du Conseil FIAL


La journée du GEMCA est traditionnellement l’occasion de donner la parole à nos membres autour d’un thème transversal. Cette année, le choix s’est porté sur la notion de vraisemblance qui prend une importance capitale dans la théorie littéraire (mais aussi artistique) moderne à partir de la redécouverte de la Poétique d’Aristote. La vraisemblance implique l’adhésion mentale du lecteur/spectateur aux faits ou objets, même irréels et même impossibles, qui lui sont présentés dans le cadre de la fiction. Le paragone des arts, la définition et la codification des genres littéraires, les débats sur le style et les figures ou encore le souci de plaire au public ont tous partie liée avec le vraisemblable. Cette notion entre aussi en dialogue avec d’autres notions relevant au premier chef de la philosophie, comme la probabilité en morale, ou encore les êtres de raison en métaphysique.
