Date: Sunday 20 November 2016 – Tuesday 22 November 2016

In collaboration with Gerhard Lutz and Forum Medieval Art from Germany, the ICMA is co-sponsoring study days in New York and Baltimore in connection with these two exhibitions:

Jerusalem 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven

A Sense of Beauty: Medieval Art and the Five Senses
Baltimore: The Walters Art Museum

Each visit will consist of a guided tour to the exhibition with the curator(s) highlighting questions of concept and presentation, and particular objects. The second part will be a tour among ourselves with collaborative discussion of specific highlighted objects and questions.

We expect a great demand for this; only a maximum number of 35 participants can be accommodated.  Although a participation in only one of the two days will be possible, preference will be given to those who would like to attend on both days.

Please see below for the full program. All expenses are to be covered by the individual participant.

Heraldry Study Day at Ely Cathedral Education and Conference Centre (10 September 2016)

issue_13_2007_pom3Heraldry Study Day
‘Mitres, Martlets and Mantling’: a heraldry study day organized by the Stained Glass Museum with Chloë Cockerill will take place on Saturday 10 September, 10.30am 4pm, at the Ely Cathedral Education and Conference Centre.

Heraldry is all around us – in both ecclesiastical and secular buildings – and can often provide vital information about the history of a building and the people associated with a place. This study day is intended as a basic introduction to the language and art of heraldry in all its various forms. Open to all, it will help you to recognize, interpret and accurately describe a variety of heraldic emblems. The day will be in split into two halves: a morning session of two informal introductory lectures – the first on how to identify and describe shields, colours, furs and the royal arms, and the second on how to understand arms that demonstrate peerage, and family pedigree. In the afternoon there will be a heraldic tour of Ely Cathedral to look at ecclesiastical arms and many other examples of heraldry in situ, before a visit to the Stained Glass Museum to see some fine examples of heraldic stained glass in both the museum’s main gallery and reserve collection.

Chloë Cockerill is a former Regional Development Manager for the Churches Conservation Trust. She is a popular lecturer for NADFAS, the National Trust, and many historical associations throughout Britain, with a special interest in heraldry and fabulous beasts. She has written articles and guide books on churches and heraldry and is an Ely Cathedral guide and Friend of The Stained Glass Museum.

Tickets: £40 (£30 for Friends of the Museum). Prices include lunch (all dietary requirements catered for). Please bring your Friends membership card or cathedral pass with you. You can book online, by telephone, or by post. Please make cheques payable to the Stained Glass Museum.

Study Days: “Merveilleux, marges et marginalité dans la littérature et l’enluminure profanes en France et dans les régions septentrionales (XIIe-XVe siècles)” (Lille, October 2014 ; Rennes, November 2014)

Study Days:
Merveilleux, marges et marginalité dans la littérature et l’enluminure profanes en France et dans les régions septentrionales (XIIe-XVe siècles)
Lille, Université de Lille 3, 16 October 2014
Rennes, Université de Rennes, 27 November 2014

calogrenant-verse-leau1
La représentation du merveilleux est peu étudiée car les travaux portant sur ce sujet émanent principalement de chercheurs en littérature. Pourtant, celui-ci étant par essence indicible et fondamentalement lié à la vue, une approche iconographique s’avère nécessaire : dans quelle mesure et par quels moyens figuratifs et conceptuels le merveilleux est-il représentable ?
L’objectif des journées est, d’une part, d’étudier la figuration des lieux, des personnages et des objets merveilleux dans les miniatures et initiales enluminées, et la façon dont leur caractère marginal est signifié dans l’image. D’autre part, nous nous intéresserons au développement de thèmes et motifs merveilleux dans les marges des manuscrits profanes, les recherches s’étant concentrées jusqu’à présent sur les manuscrits sacrés. Il semble également important d’étudier conjointement les évolutions de la représentation du merveilleux dans la littérature et dans l’iconographie ainsi que l’influence de l’histoire des mentalités sur le travail des enlumineurs et les auteurs. Ces journées d’études entrent dans une démarche interdisciplinaire, réunissant autour d’un axe de recherche commun littéraires, historiens et historiens de l’art.

BRITISH ARCHAEOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION 
Lincoln Cathedral Study Day ‘making and remaking’
Monday 6th October 2014, 10.15 – 16.30
Registration open until 19th September 2014 (limited spaces)

LINCOLN CATHEDRAL has for forty years had a full team of craftsmen, and has contributed to the training of workers at other cathedrals around the country. The ongoing programme of ‘making and remaking’ at Lincoln serves to inform our understanding not only of this particular building but also medieval architecture more widely.
Lincoln_Cathedral_(7435757570)Organised and led by cathedral archaeologist Professor Philip Dixon, this day school is an opportunity to visit the works department and talk to the masons, glaziers and carpenters of the works team, and see their daily work on the cathedral. In the afternoon Professor Dixon will lead a tour of the cathedral to look in detail at areas where the craftsmen’s work can be seen in situ alongside historic material.

The BAA is most grateful to Carol Heidschuster, manager of the works department, for generously hosting this study day. The cost of the day will be £20 for members. The event is free for students.

The cathedral is approx. 3/4 mile walk from Lincoln rail station; alternatively there is a taxi rank at the station. Coffee and biscuits will be provided on arrival at the cathedral works department, but participants will need to make their own arrangements for lunch. The cathedral refectory will be open and serving hot and cold refreshments.

Please note: the afternoon session may involve stairs, heights, confined spaces and other potential hazards. Participants must take responsibility for their own safety at all times.

Places are limited to 20, of which 10 are reserved for students. To apply please e-mail Helen Lunnon – h.lunnon@uea.ac.uk by Friday 19th September, stating if you are a student. In the case of a greater number of applications being received than places available a ballot will be used. Successful candidates will be contacted by email on Monday 22nd September, with a request for payment.
