Three hundred years ago the Dutch microscopist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek died. He had been corresponding with the Royal Society for fifty years. Leeuwenhoek, born in Delft in the Netherlands in 1632, developed himself into one of the most prolific early microscopists. He made his own lenses and small hand-held microscopes which were more versatile than most other devices at the time. With these instruments and his outstanding preparation and observation techniques, he was the first to see and describe red blood cells, bacteria and many other things. [more]

Rome 10th Century

The conference aims to draw the attention of the scientific community to the history and history of art in Rome during the 10th century, to fill the many existing historiographical and methodological gaps. [more]
The conference will explore the many ways the concept of the Renaissance has been viewed over the centuries, with a focus on the key figures, artistic practices and paradigms that have helped keep it alive for five hundred years. [more]

Immortal Egypt. The Afterlife of Egypt in Early Modern Visual Arts

These study days will question the complex interaction between continuity, discontinuity, survival and rebirth by employing the epistemological tools of art history, visual anthropology and the history of ideas in order to reflect on the heritage, as well as on the creative processes that have ensured the posterity of a strange, complex, changing, close and distant Antiquity. [more]
Images of old age and aging determine how we handle demographic change. This conference will explore how the stages of the life cycle have been construed throughout history in order to consciously recognize the stereotypes that emanate from these age categories. [more]
Wastework is an international, interdisciplinary conference on the materiality, spatiality, and processing of waste in the early modern workshop. It proposes to examine acts of disposal, displacement, removal, and abeyance – in short, the getting rid of unwanted things – and the consequences these carry for the study of early modern material culture.

Digital Publishing for the Humanities – New Technologies and Ideas

Digital Publishing for the Humanities
In recent years, digital publishing has increasingly acquired relevance in the Humanities. This is particularly the case for critical editions, which, notably when compared to print editions, can now profit from the flexibility of XML with TEI tag suite, full-text or faceted search functionalities, semantic annotations, named entity recognition and continuous improvement. [more]
Images and Institutions brings together an international team of historians of art and science for a three-day symposium in Rome to gain a larger picture of the relationships between visual culture and the developing practices of collaborative science. [more]
How were tombs conceived, narrated and represented in writings in medieval and early modern times? What was the contribution of writing in the actions that immediately followed the death? What rules determined the shape and the position of tombs? [more]
Mendicants, Humanists and the Aesthetics of the civitas. Debates and political culture in the 14th and 15th centuries and their impact on art, architecture and urban space. [more]

This conference is dedicated to the art, architecture and material culture of female monasteries patronized by the ruling dynasties in medieval Europe between the 11th and the 14th centuries. Within the late-medieval monastic universe, royal foundations share characteristics identifiable across their specific political contexts and beyond the space-time mapping of artistic and architectural phenomena.

Conference: Diagrams in Science, Science in Diagrams

Diagrammatic forms of visualization are ubiquitous in scientific publications, as well as in popular mediations of scientific contents. Every computer interface relies on diagrammatic forms, combining textual and graphical elements. Diagrams abstract and encode information. They are indispensable in many scientific contexts, and, together with charts and graphs, also in the daily media, reaching a wide audience of experts and non-experts. [more]

The City: Traces of Urban Memories

Cities, like any other forms of human settlements and like works of art, are in constant flux, a process of shaping and reshaping, of being erased, demolished, newly designed, renovated, and preserved. Like a canvas on which marks of artistic activities—lines, scratches, stains of colors, and spots—are visually documented, the urban landscapes accumulate and display through their particular structures, planning, architecture, parks, and public monuments histories of urban creativity and imagined landscapes of inhabitants. Thus could be read both the plethora of built substances that turns a space into a place and the markers of remembering and forgetting. Sites epitomize durations and changes and embody a sense of time. [more]
