Appel à communication : Animaux aquatiques et monstres des mers septentrionales / Aquatic Animals and Monsters of the Northern Seas

Lieu : Cerisy-la-Salle, 31 mai-3 juin 2017

Date limite de l’appel à communication : 31 mai 2016

Site web du colloque : http://ichtya2017.sciencesconf.org/

Dans la suite des travaux fondateurs d’Aristote et de Pline l’Ancien sur l’ichtyologie, leurs continuateurs ont privilégié l’étude de la faune aquatique des zones connues par ces auteurs, de l’Atlantique au Gange et du Nil au Rhin. En s’efforçant d’intégrer progressivement les animaux de leurs propres habitats, situés dans des zones plus septentrionales, les savants du Moyen Âge témoignent de l’importance des animaux aquatiques dans leur quotidien et de leur volonté de décrire les espèces qu’ils connaissent par l’observation et l’expérience ; ils ouvrent ainsi un nouveau champ d’étude à l’ichtyologie. Le présent colloque s’intéressera à cette évolution et sera dédié aux animaux et monstres des mers boréales.

Appel à communication. L’invention de la Tapisserie de Bayeux : naissance, composition et style d’un chef-d’œuvre médiéval

22 au 25 septembre 2016

Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux (14)

Directions de recherche
Le 950e anniversaire de la bataille de Hastings est une excellente occasion pour reconsidérer la lecture de la Tapisserie de Bayeux, non d’un point de vue historique, domaine dans lequel il n’y a sans doute pas beaucoup de nouveauté à attendre, mais d’un point de vue artistique, domaine loin d’avoir été totalement exploré.

Le colloque s’adressera à un public mixte d’universitaires et de simples curieux ou amoureux de la Tapisserie. Les communications d’une durée de 40 min chacune seront données en français .

The Viking World – Diversity and Change

We are pleased to announce this major international conference, to take place at the University of Nottingham 27 June – 2 July 2016.

http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/csva/news-events/the-viking-world-2016.aspx

2016 sees a range of significant anniversaries: not only the millennium of Knut’s accession to the English throne, but also the 950th anniversary of the Norman Conquest, arguably the end of the Viking Age in England, not to mention possibly the 900th anniversary of the martyrdom of St Magnus of Orkney. These are end points of a period of major transformations – from the voyages and settlements of Scandinavians across the North Sea, the Atlantic and the Baltic, to the conversion of the homelands and the rise of medieval kingship. The Centre for the study of the Viking Age will host this conference which aims to capture the diversity of and change in the Viking Age and its aftermath.

Les transferts culturels dans les mondes normands médiévaux – 1 Des mots pour le dire ? / Cultural transfers in Norman Medieval Worlds 1 Which words to say?

English version

Les transferts culturels dans les mondes normands médiévaux –  1 Des mots pour le dire ?

 Journée d’étude, Caen, 20 novembre 2015

(resp. P. Bauduin, Centre Michel de Boüard-CRAHAM)

L’étude des transferts culturels se heurte à des questions de terminologie qui ne relèvent pas uniquement de la sémantique, mais soulèvent des interrogations quant au contenu et à la délimitation du champ d’étude. Un bon exemple est l’usage du concept d’ « acculturation », dont les oscillations autorisent une acception large, donnée par les anthropologues, et d’autres plus étroitement connotées en termes de domination, que celle-ci soit clairement exprimée ou qu’elle prenne les formes, en apparence moins violentes, d’un soft power1 : la nécessité d’ « apprivoiser en histoire la notion d’acculturation » a été rappelée pour étudier la situation des Grecs d’Italie méridionale sous la domination normande2. La diffusion du terme « diaspora » a été maintes fois soulignée, au point de susciter une histoire du mot3. Pour les phénomènes de migration dans le monde grec antique, le mot a pu être préféré à « colonisation », jugé trop connoté ou réducteur, tandis qu’il est entré depuis peu, mais de manière insistante, dans le champ des études vikings4 ou concernant l’expansion normande des XIe-XIIe siècles.

History Books in the Anglo-Norman World Conference

22-23 May 2015
Trinity College Dublin

Call for Papers

Amongst the key sources for medieval history are the manuscripts in which medieval writers recorded their views of the past. These documents provide historians with more information than simply their textual content. The layout, decoration, script and annotations often provide insights into why a work was copied and how it was used. The twelfth century saw a boom in historical writing dealing with the recent past and stretching back to the biblical narrative. New chronicles and annals were produced, together with accounts of the histories of particular peoples, nations and places. This two-day conference will bring together scholars working on Anglo-Norman history books from a range of disciplinary perspectives to discuss the many ways in which these books can be read. The focus will be on works produced in areas controlled by the king of England between c.1066 and c.1300.

Topics covered might include, but are not limited to:

– The creation, circulation and reception of manuscripts containing material about history
– The organisation, layout and combination of texts within manuscripts dealing with history
– The use of decoration in historical manuscripts
– The contexts in which historical manuscripts were used and preserved
– The role of manuscripts in determining historical records and shaping attitudes to the past

Abstracts of no more that 300 words for papers of 20 minutes should be sent to Laura Cleaver at cleaverl@tcd.ie by the 12th September 2014.
This conference is organised as part of the ‘History Books in the Anglo-Norman World’ research project, which is funded by a Marie Curie Actions Grant (2011-15).

Écrire à l’ombre des cathédrales

Écrire à l’ombre des cathédrales

Pratiques de l’écrit en milieu cathédral (espace anglo-normand et France de l’Ouest – XIe-XIIIe siècle)

Colloque international Cerisy-la-Salle (Manche), 8-12 juin 2016

Responsables : Grégory Combalbert et Chantal Senséby

Ces trente dernières années, les pratiques de l’écrit ont été au cœur des préoccupations des chercheurs. De multiples rencontres scientifiques et de nombreuses publications leur ont été consacrées. L’écrit, particulièrement les actes de la pratique, leur processus de production et de transcription, ont bénéficié d’approches variées, souvent novatrices, toujours stimulantes. Il s’agissait tantôt de mieux cerner un « objet diplomatique » (cartulaire, pancarte, actes pontificaux…), tantôt de déterminer la pluralité de ses fonctions (« actes comme expression du pouvoir », comme instrument d’une construction mémorielle…) ; il s’agissait aussi de comprendre les processus d’élaboration des écrits, le recours à des formulaires, la mise en œuvre de procédés tels que le remploi, l’emprunt… Le propos était encore de saisir la constitution et le fonctionnement des lieux où s’élaborent ces productions (scriptoria d’église cathédrale, de chapitre régulier ou d’abbaye, chancelleries princières ou pontificales), d’observer les professionnels de l’écrit au travail (scribes, notaires…). À côté de l’écrit monastique, qui a fait ces dernières années l’objet de travaux importants et fera très prochainement celui de plusieurs colloques, des études ont été dédiées à l’écrit cathédral, surtout épiscopal, particulièrement dans le Nord de la France actuelle (Arras, Thérouanne, Cambrai). Plusieurs recueils d’actes épiscopaux, plus rarement canoniaux, ont été publiés ou sont sur le point de l’être, tant pour les espaces orientaux (Metz) que septentrionaux (Laon, Arras, Reims, Noyon-Tournai) et occidentaux (Bretagne).

Yeast for Change. Vikings and their impact on Medieval Europe, Conference 21-22 May 2015, Wrocław, Poland

Yeast for Change. Vikings and their impact on Medieval Europe

Conference 21-22 May 2015, Wrocław, Poland

In European historiography it is customary to see beginning of the Viking Age in the year 793, when a group of Norwegians came on their drakkar and plundered holy monastery on the island of Lindisfarne. Two years later similar event happened once more, this time on more grandious scale: Norwegian ships attacked several insular monasteries repeating previous success and opening the gate for the future similar activities in whole Europe.

Year 2015 will be 1219 years since these events happened, so even if it is not round number it is a good occasion for gathering on the conference about Scandinavians which were moving around making not only usual Viking stuff – plundering and killing – but, as we can see it now more clearly, introducing changes into societies they were encountering. In the conference we would like to summarise decades of research and try to give an answer to the question:
