Gal Ventura

In Maternal Breast-Feeding and Its Substitutes in Nineteenth-Century French Art, Gal Ventura investigates the ideological concepts behind the endorsement of maternal breast-feeding in modern Western society. Using diverse visual and textual sources and surveying hundreds of artworks produced from the time of the French Revolution to the beginning of the twentieth century, Ventura reveals the historical, political, religious, and economic factors that shaped the representations of breast-feeding and its substitutes in French art. She thus sheds lights on the changing attitudes toward maternal breast-feeding in nineteenth-century France, which have had a considerable impact on the glorification of breast-feeding in the Western world to this very day.

Making Copies in European Art 1400-1600 

Shifting Tastes, Modes of Transmission, and Changing Contexts 

In Making Copies in European Art 1400-1600, Maddalena Bellavitis collects 16 essays by significant scholars, who have explored in their research diverse aspects of the artistic process and the motivations behind the creation of copies after important Renaissance works of art. The essays underline the binds and exchanges between different contexts or artistic techniques that copies can establish. They concern principal artists of different artistic environments, and analyze which were the characteristics, iconographies and elements that copyists, collectors and donors focused on, and the several ways chosen to reproduce them. Still unpublished or unstudied paintings and documentation, intriguing iconographies and reconstructions of lost itineraries covered by works and their copies, augment this volume’s public and institutional appeal.

The Orientalist Karl Süssheim Meets the Young Turk Officer İsma’il Hakkı Bey

Two Unexplored Sources from the Last Decade in the Reign of the Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II

Jan Schmidt

The book consists of transcriptions and summary translations of two texts in, mostly, Ottoman Turkish, the first of which is the recently discovered second volume of the diary of the German orientalist Karl Süssheim, covering the years 1903-08 which he mostly spent in Istanbul. The second text is a printed memoir of a Young Turk officer called İsma’il Hakkı, in which the latter discusses his life, political engagement and the resulting problems. Süssheim met İsma’il Hakkı in Cairo in 1908 and kept in contact with him later. The texts offer a lively picture of Istanbul and Cairo in the early years of the 20th century, the repressive regime of Sultan Abdulhamid II and the heady days of the Young Turk revolution of July 1908.

How High the Sky?

The Definition and Delimitation of Outer Space and Territorial Airspace in International Law

Series:

Thomas Gangale

In How High the Sky?, jurist Thomas Gangale explores the oldest and most important controversy in space law: how far up does national airspace go, and where does the international environment of outer space begin? Even though nations did not object to the first satellites flying over their sovereign territory, after more than six decades there is still no international agreement on how low the right of space object overflight extends, nor are there agreed legal definitions of “space object” and “space activity.” Dr. Gangale brings his background as an aerospace engineer to bear in exploding long-held beliefs of the legal community, and he offers a draft international convention to settle the oldest and most intractable problems in space law.

The Materiality of Texts from Ancient Egypt

New Approaches to the Study of Textual Material from the Early Pharaonic to the Late Antique Period

The volume The Materiality of Texts from Ancient Egypt contains nine contributions from well-known papyrologists, Egyptologists, archaeologists and technical specialists. They discuss the materiality of ancient writing and writing supports in various ways through methodological considerations and through practical case studies from the early Pharaonic to the Late Antique periods in Egypt, including Greek and Egyptian papyri and ostraca, inscriptions and graffiti.
The articles in this volume present new approaches to the study of textual material and scribal practice, especially in the light of the ongoing development of digital techniques that uncover new information from ancient writing materials. The aim of the book is to encourage researchers of ancient texts to consider the benefits of using these new methods and technological resources.

Intertextualité surréaliste dans la poésie de René Char

Apparitions et réapparitions de l’image d’Artine

Julie S. Kleiva

Dans Intertextualité surréaliste dans la poésie de René Char, Julie S. Kleiva montre comment la figure d’Artine, initialement une représentante du surréalisme charienne, se transforme en une image complexe, polymorphe et considérablement présente à travers l’œuvre de René Char (1907-1988). En adoptant une approche intertextuelle, Kleiva soutient que la figure d’Artine représente la force déroutante au cœur de l’imagination poétique charienne. L’image revenante d’Artine favorise l’idée d’une continuité dans l’œuvre poétique de Char malgré la rupture articulée au milieu des années 30.


In Intertextualité surréaliste dans la poésie de René Char, Julie S. Kleiva demonstrates how the initially surrealist figure of Artine becomes a complex, polymorphus and, most importantly, significally present image throughout the work of the French poet René Char (1907-1988). By adopting an intertextual approach, Kleiva argues that the figure of Artine is a disturbing and confusing creative agency that corresponds to the core of Char’s poetry. The reappearing image of Artine serves to demonstrate that Char’s poetic rupture of the years from 1935-1937 has been exaggerated, and must be viewed as a development rather than a clean break.

The Major Works of John Cotta

The Short Discovery (1612) and The Trial of Witchcraft (1616)

Todd H.J. Pettigrew, Stephanie M. Pettigrew and Jacques A. Bailly

This volume presents, for the first, time, a critical edition of the works of the early modern English physician John Cotta. No mere country doctor, Cotta spoke out eloquently and courageously against what he saw as abuses in medicine and injustices in the prosecution of witchcraft. Read by important thinkers like Robert Burton in England, and by colonial administrators in New England, Cotta helped shape two of the most important debates of his time. Included are the full texts of Cotta’s Short Discovery and Trial of Witchcraft, both books painstakingly edited and annotated. Also included is a detailed introduction dealing with Cotta’s medical and religious contexts, his extensive learning and much more.

Jennifer Nevile

Footprints of the Dance — An Early Seventeenth-Century Dance Master’s Notebook by Jennifer Nevile provides new, fascinating and detailed information on the life of an early-seventeenth-century dance master in Brussels. The dance master’s handwritten notebook contains unique material: a canon of dance figures and instructions for an exhibition with a pike; as well as signatures and general descriptions of his students, ballet plots and music associated with dancing. Reproduced for the first time are facsimile images of all the dance-related material, with transcriptions and translations of the ballet plots and instructions for the pike exhibition. The dance master is revealed as an active choreographer and performer, with strong ties to the French court musical establishment, and interested in fireworks and alchemy.
