3.2. Upcoming events

 

  • 20th September 2014, École normale supérieure, 45 rue d'Ulm, Paris: L’unité ecclésiologique : héritages, traités et questions disputées (XVe-XVIIe s.) journée d’études dans le programme « Schisme et frontières d’Églises (XVIe-XVIIIe siècle) », organisée par Frédéric Gabriel et Benoît Schmitz Tous les travaux qui ont pu faire de l’institution leur objet s’accordent au moins sur un point : l’institution est intimement liée à la catégorie de l’unité, que celle-ci soit juridique, personnelle, géographique, ou même symbolique. Dès lors, que fait l’unité à l’institution ? Comment cette abstraction opère-t-elle au sein de la réflexion théorique, de la normativité, ou du discours partisan ? Est-elle seulement autoréférentielle ou se manifeste-t-elle pleinement comme fait social et politique ? Qu’est-ce que l’institution dit d’elle-même – et comment – en se posant comme référence de l’unité ? Loin d’être univoque, l’unité institutionnelle sera étudiée dans la sémantique sous-jacente des problèmes discutés, entre intégration et exclusivité. D’où le choix évident d’une institution qui se réclame par excellence de l’unité, qui en fait sa première marque, et la théorise : l’Église. C’est en son sein que le problème est pensé, édifié et continuellement discuté et mis en danger. En effet, l’unité, en tant que première des « notes » de l’Église est l’un des sujets les plus importants des controverses de l’âge moderne. Elle définit non seulement un état typique de cette institution, mais elle relie aussi les diverses dimensions (doctrinale, conciliaire, théologico-politique, controversiale, apologétique, liturgique, etc.) des débats théologiques.

  

  • 16-19th October 2014, New Orleans, EMoDiR-Panel at the Sixteenth Century Society Conference: Sex, Food, Religious Identity: Defining Social Boundaries in Early Modern Europe with the participation of Bernard Cooperman, Federico Barbierato, Tamar Herzig, Philip Soergel.

The conference examines the wealth and variety of written materials, both in print and from archival sources, related to the experience of dissent across a wide spectrum of genres: from surviving gathered-church records and church books in Old and New England to letters and correspondence, poetry, and dissenting activities in the book trade. This is the second in a series of three annual events exploring the collective experience of the dissenting churches in the period 1600-1800. Speakers are: Margaret Bendroth, Francis F. Bremer, James F. Cooper, Joel Halcomb, Nicholas McDowell, Jason McElligott, Johanna Harris, George Southcombe, Bob Wordsworth. More information: http://dissent.hypotheses.org

You might want to check also the following link: Dissenting Experience. This scholarly blog offers resources and commentaries for all those sharing a research interest in the history, literature and culture of early-modern British dissent (1500-1800). It was set up in 2013 as an accompanying blog to a series of conferences on gathered Churches held at Dr Williams's Library (London) and is currently co-written by Anne Dunan-Page (Aix Marseille University), Michael Davies (Liverpool) and Joel Halcomb (UEA).

 

--------------------------------------

 

EMoDiR (Early Modern religious Dissents and Radicalism) is an international research network devoted to understanding religious dissent in Europe.  It is committed to gathering together a variety of research projects on early modern religious culture which, given its multifaceted nature, is conceived as a dynamic system. Based on a detailed investigation that transcends traditional historiographical boundaries (notably national and/or confessional), we wish to examine the discursive constructions and the socio-cultural practices of religious dissent.  The declared aims of EMoDiR are the promotion of national and international research projects; organising seminars, meetings, conferences and workshops; publication of its own activities; supporting interdisciplinary and international collaboration; disseminating research carried out by the group; establishing research networks and scientific exchanges.

We send a monthly newsletter with information on research activities, conference participation, workshops, recent publications on the subject of early modern religious dissents and radicalism. Even if we privilege activities organised by the members of the network themselves we also try to include other relevant notices. Please do not hesitate to let us know if there are any activities you organise or you come to know about that you wish to circulate among the members of EMoDiR and others who might be interested.

Members of the Scientific Advisory Board: Alessandro Arcangeli, Federico Barbierato (coordinator of Executive Committee), Emese Balint, Daniela Solfaroli Camillocci, Jean-Pierre Cavaillé, Bernard Cooperman, Pierre-Antoine Fabre, Nicolas Fornerod, Ariel Hessayon, Sophie Houdard, Mario Infelise, Adelisa Malena (secretary), Anne Page, Chiara Petrolini, Philip Soergel, Xenia von Tippelskirch (chair of Scientific Advisory Board), Anne-Charlott Trepp, Stefano Villani.
