We like to draw your attention to:

The Hurt(ful) Body Before Diderot, Pain and Suffering in Early Modern Performance and the Visual Arts (c. 1600 – 1790).

Brussels, 21-22 November 2013
Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts

The disjunctive image of pain and suffering is
today too often regarded as simply ‘emotive’, an expression like any other. The Hurt(ful) Body examines early modern and eighteenth-century visual culture at large, addressing key manifestations of the hurt and hurt-causing body and setting up a dialogue between various academic disciplines.

Keynote speakers are Jonathan Sawday (Saint Louis University) and Christian Biet (Université de Paris Ouest Nanterre – La Défense)
