OVI Video Conference Seminar - Pär Larson

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

March 7, 2018

Pär Larson: “Ancora sul Frammento piacentino: nuove letture e interpretazioni” (More on the Frammento piacentino: New Readings and Interpretations)

 

L’antico testo poetico italiano convenzionalmente noto come “Frammento piacentino”, fatto conoscere da Claudio Vela durante un memorabile seminario di studi nel 2004, non ha ricevuto le attenzioni da parte degli studiosi che ci si sarebbe potuto aspettare, trattandosi di una composizione del secolo XIII trasmessa insieme alla sua musica (cosa rara, in Italia). Si propone una nuova analisi del ms. con alcune modifiche della ‘vulgata’ e una lettura complessiva, con proposte interpretative nuove.…

Giotto’s Jubilee: Rome 1300 in Technicolor - Henrike Christiane Lange

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

March 15, 2018

What if the lost architectural substance of medieval Rome, the city in which Giotto served as a painter to the Pope, can be partially recovered with the help of modern scientific, archaeological, and digital tools? What can we learn about the medieval forum during the First Jubilee in the year 1300, where the Papal procession featured ancient monuments in the frame of their Christian medieval context? How can archaeological findings about colours change our understanding of Giotto’s eye-deceiving murals in his most famous chapel, decorated soon after the Jubilee in the city of Padua? The lecture offers a new reading of the Arena Chapel / Scrovegni Chapel in relation to the vanished Palazzo Scrovegni and of the Roman monuments in relation to the vanished Palazzo Frangipani on the ancient-medieval, Christianized Forum Romanum. Questions of polychromy become questions of medium, iconography, iconology, critical historiography, and intellectual modernity of the chapel’s design.

OVI Video Conference Seminar - Giuseppe Marrani

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

April 4, 2018

Giuseppe Marrani: “Oltre la parodia. Commentare i sonetti di Cecco Angiolieri” (Beyond Parody. A New Comment on Cecco Angiolieri’s Sonnets)

I sonetti ad oggi riconosciuti come angioliereschi possiedono una notevole varietà di espressione e una vivace pluralità di ispirazione finora mai messe in luce. L’originalità della poesia comica dell’Angiolieri, volentieri aperta allo scherno giullaresco e non appiattita sull’autoritratto di meschino e frustrato gaudente resta tuttora da scoprire, in particolar modo per quel che riguarda le rime d’amore, spesso lontane dall’appiattimento parodico e piuttosto animate dalla rappresentazione di una scellerata e pur fervida voluttà.…

Book Launch: "Roman Sources for the History of American Catholicism, 1763–1939"

Location: Rome Global Gateway

This event will celebrate the publication project of Cushwa's inaugural Rome fellow, Matteo Binasco: "Roman Sources for the History of American Catholicism, 1763–1939," (UND Press, spring 2018; edited by Kathleen Sprows Cummings). Binasco wrote this guide to over 50 Roman archives during his three years as a Cushwa Center postdoctoral fellow based at the Rome Global Gateway (2014–2017). The volume profiles research repositories throughout the city of Rome to assist researchers in seeking archival sources relevant to the history of American Catholicism. Invitees will include Cushwa's newly-constituted Rome Advisory Committee, chaired by Luca Codignola. Codignola and Matteo Sanfilippo authored the volume's introduction, which reviews the intricate web of relations linking the Holy See and the American Catholic Church since the Treaty of Paris of 1763.

Conference: The Political Logic of Mediterranean Landscapes: Insights from NEH-sponsored Archaeological Research in Southern Calabria

Location: Rome Global Gateway

June 28 - 30, 2018

This international conference emerges from twenty years of research by the Bova Marina Archaeological Project in southern Calabria, and specifically from our current Collaborative NEH Grant (co-PIs Chesson, Robb). We seek an arena for scholars from Europe and North America working in the Mediterranean to compare BMAPs research with their own research, to foster multi-disciplinary dialogue, and collectively to construct holistic and diachronic explanations of how people have inhabited Mediterranean landscapes throughout 8000 years of settlement. This conference will include scholars from archaeology, ethnography, history, economics, and geography to explore these two questions: (1) how have humans defined and inhabited a social landscape since establishing the first farming communities around 6000 BCE until now?
 and (2) what is the logic underlying this changing use? How are human landscapes generated not only by geography, ecological conditions and macro-politics (as theorists have argued) but also local, bottom-up forms of practical political logic?

Transpositions: Translation, Migration, Music - An academic conference

Location: Rome Global Gateway

June 28 - 30, 2018

This conference, subtitled "Toward New Euro-Mediterranean Francophonies," will bring together scholars from Europe and the United States who are members of an international research group devoted to new forms of expression in French, from written works to musical compositions. The literary critics and musicologists who make up this group will share their work a special symposium at the University of Notre Dame Global Gateway in Rome in June 2018 to examine how elements from other cultures, from languages to soundscapes, are transposed into French, and are effectively transposing French, in the present, thanks to migration.

Why Frankenstein Matters at 200: Rethinking the Human with the Arts and Sciences

Location: Rome Global Gateway

July 3 - 5, 2018

This interdisciplinary conference will mark the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein by bringing together leading biologists, anthropologists, theologians, and lawyers along with some of the world’s experts on Frankenstein in literature, theater, film, and political theory. It will enable multiple dialogues (secular and religious) on profound questions concerning the ethics and politics of the artificial creation of (human) life. The conference will present two new adaptations of Frankenstein to film and stage as points of departure for discussion of the enduring meanings of Shelley’s myth for modern science, religion, and politics. The conference will answer its guiding question—Why does Frankenstein Matter at 200?—by showing how Shelley’s story not only lives on in new artistic forms, but also in new interpretations of its relevance to twenty-first century issues ranging from the ethics and politics of genetic engineering and artificial intelligence, to the scope and content of human rights.
