This workshop is co-organised by European Research Project RELMIN, Regional Programme STARACO "STatus, RAce et COuleurs dans l'Atlantique de l'Antiquité à nos jours" and the University of Nantes. It will explore the visual distinctions (clothes, haircuts, etc.) used to mark the difference between legally separate groups and communities.
This workshop will be held on June 5 and 6 in Nantes.
The first workshop, on June 5 at the Castle, will address the question of the body as a marker of difference (social, ethnic, religious…). The second and third workshops will be held at La Cité and are part of the Journées Scientifiques de l'Université de Nantes (mandatory registration). They will explore in particular the sumptuary law, i.e. the legal frame surrounding the dress codes meant to mark religious and social distinctions. Workshop 2 will study this issue from the Mediterranean medieval perspective and Workshop 3 will examine Europe and its Empires from the 13th to the 18th century.
