BOOK PRESENTATION: "La loi de la chair. Le droit au corps du conjoint dans l'oeuvre des canonistes XIIe-XVe siècle" by Marta Madero (Paris, February 11 2016)


WHAT La loi de la chair. Le droit au corps du conjoint dans l'oeuvre des canonistes XIIe-XVe siècle, book presentation and debate with the Author, Marta Madero

WHEN February 11 2016, 15:00/17:00

WHERE salle 1, EHESS, 105 bd. Raspail




En montrant que le droit au corps de l'autre est aussi, à partir du XIIe siècle, au coeur de l’institution du mariage, Marta Madero éclaire d’une manière nouvelle une histoire – celle des relations charnelles et des liens matrimoniaux – qui a fait pourtant l’objet de nombreux travaux ces dernières décennies. Elle a découvert en effet que les canonistes du XIIe au XVe siècle construisent un régime juridique des rapports de chair avec les règles que le droit romain appliquait aux rapports de possession et de propriété des hommes sur les choses et même à la subordination des choses entre elles. L’objet du consentement est bien, dès le XIIe siècle – on a eu tendance à l’oublier –, le droit au corps du conjoint. Mais est-ce que ce droit s’exerce sur une chose qui serait le corps, ou sur une partie du corps ? Ou bien s’agit-il d’une servitude réelle que ce corps porte comme l’on dit qu’un champ est grevé d’une servitude de passage attachée aux champs voisins ? Quels sont les actes qui font naître ou cesser ce droit au corps du conjoint ? Peut-il renaître, et comment ? Invoquer le droit au corps de l’autre, c’est aussi, on le comprend alors, une autre façon de purifier les liens de la chair comme les alchimistes éliminent les scories de la matière. Et l’œuvre au noir des canonistes et des juges ouvre ainsi le vaste espace d’une casuistique dont l’étude nous prépare à mieux comprendre sans doute les méthodes et l’historicité du droit contemporain, mais aussi peut-être la préhistoire de nos sexualités

En présence de l'Autrice, qui est aussi professeure invitée à l'école, en discuteront:

COLLOQUIUM: ""Circulations juridiques et pratiques culturelles en Europe au Moyen Âge (XIIIe – XVe siècle) - Medieval Europe in Motion 3" (Lisbon, February 25-27 2016)


WHAT Circulations juridiques et pratiques culturelles en Europe au Moyen Âge (XIIIe – XVe siècle) - Medieval Europe in Motion 3

WHEN February 25-27 2016

WHERE Lisbon, Portugal

Le colloque international Medieval Europe in Motion 3 poursuit la série de rencontres scientifiques inaugurée en 2013 par l’Institut d’Études Médiévales (IEM) de l’Université Nouvelle de Lisbonne sur la thématique des mobilités artistiques et culturelles en Europe au Moyen Âge.
L’objectif principal de ce nouveau colloque, en continuité thématique avec les deux éditions précédentes, est d’analyser les phénomènes de circulation et de mobilité des élites lettrées (clercs, universitaires, praticiens), des enlumineurs, des manuscrits, des textes, des modèles artistiques et des idées liés à la pratique du droit dans le territoire européen avec une attention particulière pour les contrées méridionales (péninsule Ibérique, France du Midi et Italie). La recherche qui soutien l’idée de ce colloque dérive du projet de post-doctorat de Maria Alessandra Bilotta, qui vise à mettre en évidence les liens artistiques et culturels entre le Portugal et le reste de l’Europe, avec un accent particulier sur les manuscrits des régions du sud (de la péninsule ibérique, sud de la France et de la péninsule italienne).

Diversité des appartenances  au regard du Pacte social

Dominique Schnapper (Sociologue, directrice d’études à l’EHESS) et Paul Zawadzki (Maître de conférences en sciences politiques à l’Université de Paris 1 (GSRL))

A suivre Isaiah Berlin, J. G. Herder (1774-1803)  « est vraiment le premier à insister sur le besoin d’appartenance à une communauté en tant que besoin fondamental, aussi nécessaire que la nourriture, la boisson, la chaleur, la sécurité… ».  Au cœur de bien des polémiques, à commencer dès le XVIIIe s. par la critique de Kant, la pensée de Herder et sa réhabilitation du préjugé inaugure selon certains la réaction « anti Lumières », réactivée plus tard par la culture fasciste.  Pour d’autres, sa philosophie de l'histoire marque bien d’avantage, sur certains points, un approfondissement des Lumières. Pour certains, il est l'un des pères du nationalisme allemand, voir le grand-père du nazisme. Pour d'autres, sa vision du génie propre et incomparable de chaque peuple est en affinité avec la critique de l'ethnocentrisme. J’aimerais dans cette brève communication revenir sur deux ou trois dilemmes ainsi ouverts dans la modernité autour de la question de l’appartenance à partir de ces discussions avec (ou contre) Herder.
Ce questionnement est toujours vivace aujourd'hui. Il apparaît que l'on n’appartient pas à une culture ou un groupe social qui existeraient indépendamment de l’activité des hommes, alors qu’ils en sont le produit. Il s’agit plutôt d’identification des individus aux divers groupes ou collectivités historiques dont ils sont issus, réellement ou mythiquement. La société moderne se définit précisément par la possibilité de transcender par la citoyenneté les « appartenances » à des groupes particuliers. Les sociétés démocratiques sont formées d’individus dont les rôles et les références sont multiples. Suivant les situations sociales et les circonstances historiques, ils choisissent constamment et remettent en question diverses formes de références et d’identifications.


Nationalité et citoyenneté : diversité des formes juridiques d’appartenance(s)

10 H 15 – 11 H - Nécessité et contingence de la nationalité, Etienne Patault (Professeur de droit à l’Université de Paris 1)
Juridiquement, la distinction entre citoyenneté et nationalité est l'une des plus fuyante qui soit. Il y a une raison à cela : l’idée que l’Etat est la source naturelle du droit et que ce droit est d’abord et avant tout conçu pour les nationaux. Cette identification du droit et de l’Etat, d’un côté, et des destinataires de ce droit avec les nationaux, de l’autre, est pourtant aujourd’hui très profondément remise en cause. Cette remise en cause aboutit notamment à la renaissance en Europe d'un concept juridiquement opératoire de citoyenneté. Mais l'histoire, et notamment l'histoire coloniale, montre que ce qui émerge en Europe est un avatar de questions juridiques déjà anciennes.

EVENT: Symposium on Anglicization of Law and through Law (8 April 2016)

Symposium on Comparative Early Modern Legal History:

Anglicization of Law and through Law:
Early Modern British North America, India, and Ireland Compared


Date: Friday, April 8, 2016
Location: Newberry Library, Chicago
Organized by: Jane Ohlmeyer (Trinity College, Dublin), Richard Ross (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), and Philip Stern (Duke University)

            Scholars have long asked whether and how English settlements in North America, India, and Ireland converged towards metropolitan models, or anglicized, over the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.  This question has commonly been asked about each region separately.  Our conference poses the question comparatively—and from the perspective of legal history.  We want to study the comparative anglicization of law and the anglicization of society through law in different portions of the English empire.  To this end, we are interested in the following sorts of questions: To what extent does the notion of “anglicization” make sense in the dissimilar contexts of early modern North America, Ireland, and India?  What value does the concept have as English law adapted to and conformed with extant legal systems from Belfast to Boston to Bombay?  How did local material, demographic, and ideological environments shape the meaning of anglicization?  How did imperial officials, settlers, merchants, and indigenous leaders, from their distinct perspectives, treat anglicization as a goal to be advanced, reworked, or resisted?  In what ways did each region serve as a laboratory for ideas and policies about anglicization that were later exported to other regions, and there reshaped?  The conference will bring together law professors, historians, and social scientists to think about a comparative legal and social history of anglicization across the dispersed early modern English empire.

Jane Ohlmeyer (Trinity College, Dublin), Richard Ross (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), and Philip Stern (Duke University) organized “Anglicization of Law and through Law: Early Modern British North America, India, and Ireland Compared.”  The conference is an offering of the Symposium on Comparative Early Modern Legal History, which gathers every other year at the Newberry Library in Chicago in order to explore a particular topic in the comparative legal history of the Atlantic world in the period c.1492-1815.  Funding has been provided by the University of Illinois College of Law. 

            Attendance at the Symposium is free and open to the public.  Those who wish to attend should preregister by sending an email to Richard Ross at Rjross@illinois.edu.  Papers will be circulated electronically to all registrants several weeks before the conference.

For information about the conference, please consult our website at http://www.law.illinois.edu/symposium-comparative-early-modern-legal-history or contact Prof. Richard Ross at Rjross@illinois.edu or at 217-244-7890.
