Abstract

Ce volume est divisé en deux grandes parties, regroupant sept études approfondies en sciences humaines et sociales. Les auteurs, jeunes chercheurs de haut niveau, ont mené leurs enquêtes de Londres aux pays Baltes, de la Polynésie française au Congo et au Panama, en questionnant les archives et leurs multiples usages, les processus d’exposition et de réception dans les domaines des arts plastiques, du cinéma et du théâtre. Dans le questionnement des dispositifs d’exposition et de leurs versants discursifs, à travers quelques exemples relevant de champs différents (histoire de l’art, histoire du cinéma, histoire sociale), une importance centrale est accordée aux sources et à leurs utilisations. Comment articuler concrètement l’analyse d’une image ou d’une œuvre avec l’examen de la manière dont les acteurs sociaux façonnent le regard pour les futurs spectateurs ? À l’encontre d'une idée reçue qui voudrait que le patrimoine constitue un ensemble donné de biens qu’il s’agirait d’entretenir (ou non), les sujets abordés dans ce volume mettent au contraire en évidence la dimension vivante, active, mouvante des patrimoines concernés – tout en rappelant que cette dimension mouvante n’est ni univoque, ni positive. L’intérêt porté aux processus de fabrication et d’emploi de différents types de patrimoine permettra de mettre en lumière les dynamiques internes à ces ensembles.

Abstract

On November 11 and 12, 2011, a symposium held at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill honored John M. Headley, Emeritus Professor of History. The organizers, Professor MelissaBullard—Headley’s colleague in the department of history at that university—along with ProfessorsPaul Grendler (University of Toronto) and James Weiss (Boston College), as well as Nancy GraySchoonmaker, coordinator of the Program in Medieval and Early Modern Studies—assembled presenters, respondents, and dozens of other participants from Western Europe and North America to celebrate the career of their prolific, versatile, and influential colleague whose publications challenged and often changed the ways scholars think about Martin Luther, Thomas More, the Habsburg empire,early modern Catholicism, globalization, and multiculturalism.This special issue contains the major papers delivered at the symposium, revised to take account of colleagues’ suggestions at the conference and thereafter. John O’Malley studies the censorship ofsacred art with special reference to Michelangelo’s famed “Last Judgment” and the Council of Trent.John Martin sifts Montaigne’s skepticism about contemporaneous strategies for self-disclosure andself-discipline. Stressing the significance of grammar, Constantin Fasolt helps us recapture theRenaissance’s and the early modern religious reformations’ disagreements with antiquity. RonaldWitt’s reappraisal of humanist historiography probes Petrarch’s perspectives on ancient Rome. JohnMcManamon includes tales of theft and market manipulation in his study of the early moderncollection and circulation of books and manuscripts, the commodification of study. To “nuance” John Headley’s conclusions about “the Europeanization of the world,” Jerry Bentley repossesses the influence of other than European societies on several European theorists of human rights. Kate Lowe’s remarks on the reconstruction of race in the Renaissance explores the effects of a critical mistranslation on what being black was taken to mean by Europeans. David Gilmartin introduces readers to the shape of democracy in nineteenth- and twentieth-century India, as well as to the understandings of popular sovereignty that affected elections, suggesting strides that scholars might take “toward a worldwide history of voting”.The remarkable range of these contributions comes close to reflecting the range of ProfessorHeadley’s interests and achievements, which James M. Weiss maps in his tribute, identifying“unifying themes” in Headley’s work.
