Early European Puppetry Studies Conference

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:25pm
Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2023

From moving statues to artificial animals to marionette performances, puppetry seems to have appeared in every sector of medieval and early modern European society. Jointed religious figures illustrated the liturgy, while dragon effigies processed through cities on feast days, and popular and courtly audiences enjoyed puppet shows of legendary and historical events. Despite the ubiquity of medieval and early modern puppets in Europe, scholarly consideration of these performing objects is often limited to case studies. Consideration of “puppetry” as a particular form with its own norms and commonalities is also uncommon, due in part to the marginal position of puppetry in Western culture.

Designing Urban Universities

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin

Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 June 2023

There is a growing dissonance between the urban university as often perceived—its physical, architectural, and emblematic form, its legacy structures and spaces, its time-honoured functions and traditions—and the university as a knowledge factory within the city, subject to political, commercial, and environmental pressures. But this is not a new dissonance. Architectural and design histories can uncover how, across diverse cases, it has often shaped the urban university internally and in its relationship with the city.
