Appel à candidature : « The Classical Word in Context: Persia », bourses en résidence de la Villa Getty (Los Angeles, 2017-2018)

gri_logoThe Getty Villa theme, THE CLASSICAL WORLD IN CONTEXT: PERSIA, investigates the political, intellectual, religious, and artistic relations between Persia, Greece, and Rome from the ninth century BC to AD 651. Reaching from the borders of Greece to India, the Persian Empire was viewed by the Greeks as a vastly wealthy and powerful rival and often as an existential threat. The rise of the Roman Empire as a world power quickly brought it, too, into conflict with Persia, despite the common trade that flowed through their territories.

The 2017/2018 scholar year is the first of two terms that will be devoted to this theme. Priority will be given to research projects that . . . → En lire plus

L’Iconoclasme transforme et créé entièrement de nouveaux objets ou de nouvelles significations à travers l’altération des oeuvres d’art. Ces objets ou significations, symboliquement investis, témoignent d’une histoire de la réception en offrant des clés sur la vie et le destin d’un objet. Tout changement radical dans la production culturelle peut, dans une certaine mesure, être considéré comme iconoclaste.
