Chercheur de l’École française de Rome

Palazzo-Farnese

FELLOWSHIP: Appel à candidature pour un séjour comme chercheur résident auprès de l’École française de Rome, 2015.

Les Écoles françaises à l’étranger ont mis en place depuis la rentrée 2012 le statut de chercheurs résidents dans leurs établissements. À l’École française de Rome (EFR), ce titre est accordé à des enseignants-chercheurs, des chercheurs statutaires ou des post-doctorants sous contrat qui sont accueillis pour une durée de six mois renouvelable, pour contribuer à la réalisation d’un programme scientifique en collaboration avec l’EFR1. L’accueil est réglé par convention entre l’EFR et l’organisme de rattachement de ces chercheurs. L’École met à leur disposition tous ses moyens matériels et scientifiques pour faciliter la réalisation de leur programme.

Une aide pour favoriser leur séjour hors de leur résidence peut en outre être proposée par l’EFR lorsque le programme ne bénéficie pas de financements extérieurs propres :
- pour ceux qui se logent par eux-mêmes dans Rome, une aide de 2000€ mensuels est octroyée ;
- pour ceux qui sont logés dans l’immeuble de la Piazza Navona, l’aide mensuelle est de 1200€ sur lesquels est effectué un prélèvement de 600€ pour le loyer du studio (chambre-cuisinesalle d’eau) ;
- pour tous, remboursement d’un voyage par semestre vers leur résidence principale, sur la base du tarif économique.

L’EFR propose pour 2015, sans préjuger d’autres demandes susceptibles d’être prises en compte sans aide financière, un total de 30 mois d’aide à la mobilité. Une attention particulière sera portée aux dossiers s’inscrivant dans les champs disciplinaires relevant des Sciences Sociales.

Les dossiers, comportant un bref CV avec bibliographie sélective, une lettre de motivation précisant la période de séjour sollicitée, une copie du contrat ou de l’arrêté de nomination dans l’institution d’appartenance ainsi qu’une autorisation de séjour à Rome émanant de cette même institution, peuvent être envoyés, par mail, au secrétariat du directeur des études concerné par le programme de recherches dans lequel s’insère la mobilité, dans les délais suivants :
- au plus tard le 4 novembre 2014 pour les dossiers sollicitant une aide financière ;
- au fil de l’eau pour les autres dossiers.

Les chercheurs sollicitant une aide à la mobilité seront informés de l’issue de leur demande au plus tard le 25 novembre 2014.

Space, Place and Ornament in MSS Illumination

BOOK: Margaret Goehring, Space, Place and Ornament: the Function of Landscape in Medieval Manuscript Illumination, Turnhout (Belgium) 2013 (Brepols), 214 p., 85 b/w ill. + 16 colour ill., hardback cover, € 105,00.

This book proposes a new methodological framework for the study of medieval landscape imagery by analyzing the functions of landscape within Northern European manuscript illumination.

This study explores landscape imagery within a broad range of specific manuscript contexts, taking into account the ideological and the economic milieus in which they were produced. Organized into four sections, this study looks at how landscape functions as rhetorical device, ornament, didactic tool (Space) and political tool (Place). The first section explores the rhetorical function of landscape as encomium and amplificatio.

The second section looks at the role that landscape imagery had in the hierarchy of book decoration, and how it responded to late medieval mnemonic systems and devotional practices. It also addresses the emergence of landscape as a form of ornamental elaboration, sometimes as a means to appeal to specific aesthetic criteria, or as a way to create extra-textual associations to augment the message of the text.

The third section is concerned with landscape within encyclopedic and allegorical manuscripts, analyzing how artists constructed space to frame knowledge. Finally, the visualization of the political and economic landscape of late medieval Europe is explored, particularly focusing on how landscape was structured around issues of status, power and identity not only in works created for the landed nobility but within manuscripts made for urban patrons as well.

Concentrating on manuscripts from Paris, Northern France and Flanders from the late thirteenth to the early sixteenth centuries, this book offers new insights as it contextualizes the emergence of landscape painting in the late Middle Ages.

Columbia University’s MA now Accepted

NEWS: Columbia University’s MA in Medieval and Rennaissance Studies.

Applications are now being accepted for Columbia University’s MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Applications are accepted for both Spring and Fall admission.

The MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies provides the opportunity to undertake graduate level work in any relevant field of interest. Students have the flexibility to take a variety of courses in art history, religion, history, philosophy, literature or other relevant fields offered by departments in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

This flexibility offers the opportunity to concentrate in one area while also exploring other aspects of the life, thought, and culture of the Middle Ages and/or the Renaissance. Through this unique interdisciplinary and cross-period approach, students gain a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the medieval period and the Renaissance.

The program is appropriate for students who will go on to apply to PhD programs as well as for those who wish to complete a terminal MA. In addition to choosing from a wide range of courses, students develop their skills in relevant languages, and are introduced to the study of manuscripts and early printed books. The MA culminates in a final thesis in which students develop an original research project. Students have the option to pursue the degree full time or part-time.

Deadlines are 1 November 2014 for Spring admission; and 15 March 2015 for Fall admission.

CARMEN The Worldwide Medieval Network

WEBSITE: CARMEN The Worldwide Medieval Network.

CARMEN is a worldwide network of medievalists, its name being an acronym for the “Co-operative for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network”. It links a number of research institutions, universities, interest groups and individuals with common scholarly interest in the study of the Middle Ages. While based in Europe, it reaches out to all continents to create an open and truly international platform of co-operation in the field of medieval research and teaching.

CARMEN brings together scholars from universities and academic organisations who are actively involved in research on the Middle Ages (c. 400-1500 AD/CE). It accesses half of the global body of about 20,000 researchers, with important contributions from Europe, North America, East Asia, Australasia and Latin America.

CARMEN successfully promotes the construction of major scholarly collaborative projects. Its Executive Group directs strategies, disseminates information, reports to national associations and major conferences, and organises an annual meeting. It assists nascent projects to reach critical mass and tries to pro-actively shape research agendas.

CARMEN helps in identifying sources of large-scale international research funds and grants, and helps research groups apply for such money. CARMEN can help instigate and co-ordinate the international network behind such projects and facilitate communication during the application process.

CARMEN recognises that large-scale projects have often gestated over a long time, and helps foster such initiatives as they grow from an initial idea to the level of maturity desired by the participants.

CARMEN helps shape the research environment for medievalists, by brokering funding opportunities with national and international agencies, and identifying relevant research trends. CARMEN envisages the next phase of development for the scholarly field.
