Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The general aims of the Projet Volterra (named, in association with the École Française de Rome, in honour of Edoardo Volterra (1904-1987), the distinguished scholar of Roman Law) are to promote the study of Roman legislation in its full social, political and legal context, and its continuing tradition. The area of Roman imperial legal pronouncements was identified as one in which current scholarship was less than adequately served in terms of Regesten, repertoria and bibliographical aids.

Analysing the Mitchell and Kenyon Collection in relation to regional and non-fiction films 1900-1911

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The Mitchell and Kenyon collection has substantially challenged the traditional view of early cinema in that it has shifted the emphasis to exhibition and audience response away from film production and technique. The Collection has provided empirical evidence that the spread and exploitation of cinema in the first decade of the twentieth century outside the South East basis was primarily undertaken by itinerant showmen.

The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland (CRSBI) is an evolving electronic archive of British and Irish Romanesque stone sculpture.

ROMANESQUE SCULPTURE

Romanesque sculpture marks a high point of artistic production in Britain and Ireland, corresponding to the boom in high-quality building that followed the Norman Conquest in 1066, and reflecting a new set of links with mainland Europe.
