    Programme Séminaire doctorale interdisciplinaire Inside the Nunnery. Ob   Inside the Nunnery Objects, Practices and Spaces of Female Spirituality in the Medieval and Early Modern Periods Call for papers Interdisciplinary Workshop MMSH, Aix-en-Provence May 31 - June 1  The field of Religious History of the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period has been recently stimulated by two epistemological shifts. The first one is the Spatial turn, which has allowed us to explore the potentialities that notions like "Landscape" or "Space" can display. These two concepts, combined with other significant aspects such as experience, usage, perception, practics, or gesture, provide us with a wider perspective that goes beyond the notion of physical space. The Spatial turn has already been extremely fruitful for the study of monasticism, spirituality, religious identity, and religious urban geography. On the one hand, it procured a new viewpoint to analyze the multiple usages of space, either physical or abstract, in the study of religious communities. On the other hand, it has contributed to examine the multiplicity of appropriations and perceptions of the space, an aspect that has made us reconsider our approaches to gender studies. Another methodological shift that has recently stroke the Religious Studies is the Liturgical turn, a mouvement srcinally born in the field of Art History. This innovative approach has also allowed us to amplify the perspectives from which the space has been studied, focusing on liturgical and paraliturgical practices revealed in material production, art and crafts, dramatic performances, or architecture. This workshop intends to question these new interdisciplinary approaches within the study of the inner topography of women religious communities from the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period. Favoring case studies, the aim of this workshop is to provide a place of discussion for the numerous regards that ongoing researches are developing in this field. Indeed, "Inside the Nunnery" we may find landscapes that are not only determined by their architecture, but also by the materiality that inhabits them, and by the performatif, ritual, and productive usages of the space.    Aims and Organization This doctoral workshop intends to gather together students and researchers specialized in the Medieval and Early Modern periods in order to put into perspective some of the methodological challenges posed by the spatial and liturgical turns concerning the study of social and cultural phenomena linked to the women religious life. Topographical and planimetrical surveys will be combined with the historical study of ritual, symbolic, devotional, and performative practices. The purpose is to provide a working space for PhD students from different disciplines (History, Archeology, Art History, Literature, Musicology, among others) that share a common historical perspective. Also, thanks to the presentation of specific studies, this event attempts to draw up a critical current state of the already stated methodological approaches concerning the study of late-medieval spiritual female life and practices.The workshop will offer three different interlinked activities: lectures, reading workshops, and presentations of ongoing researches. The lectures will introduce current projects that bring questions and answers to the topic. The reading workshops will enable the participants to discuss two recent articles linked to the subject with the presence of their authors. The presentation of the ongoing researches will allow the students to show and confront their work, their sources, and their methods with the rest of the partakers. This event will be coordinated by Sergi Sancho Fibla and organized by Labexmed, Spiritual Landscapes (a research project from Universitat de Barcelona), TELEMMe, and ArAr.  Applications The workshop is open to all researchers from any discipline concerned by the topic. Applicants must send an abstract of their ongoing research (300 words) and a short bio before April 20th to the following email address: ssfibla@gmail.com. PhD students who do not have a financial aid by their institutions may be granted of a travel bursary. The registration fee will be of 50 ! . French and English will be used for this workshop. At least a passive knowledge of both languages will be required.
