Помогите спасти Снетогорские фрески, г. Псков
Собор Рождества Богородицы Снетогорского женского монастыря с уникальным комплексом фресок начала XIV века лишен музейного статуса и передается РПЦ.

17 июля 2012 г. Юрий Киселев, директор Псковского государственного музея-заповедника, в чьем ведении находился Рождественский собор Снетогорского монастыря, подписал соглашение с главой территориального управления Росимущества в Псковской области Александром Сребролюбовым о расторжении "охранного договора на безвозмездное пользование памятником истории и культуры", заключенного в 2001 году. Таким образом, собор утратил музейный статус и, согласно Федеральному закону "О передаче религиозным организациям имущества религиозного назначения" 2010 года, должен поступить в распоряжение Псковской епархии РПЦ. Процедура оказалась столь несложной, поскольку "памятник истории и культуры" не находился в оперативном управлении у музея-заповедника, и ни собор, ни его фрески не были включены в состав музейного фонда РФ. Хранительнице монументальной живописи Псковского музея-заповедника Таисии Кругловой предписывалось отдать ключи от собора чиновникам Росимущества, которые, в свою очередь, должны передать их представителям Псковской епархии, однако она отказалась это сделать и сообщила о своем отказе "Псковской ленте новостей".

Рождественский собор Снетогорского монастыря, построенный в 1311 году и расписанный фресками в 1313-м, является единственным сохранившимся памятником псковской монументальной живописи XIV века. Реставрационные работы в нем не завершены. По мнению реставраторов, хозяйственное использование монастырской территории пагубно сказывается на состоянии храма, а проведение в нем богослужений в скором времени уничтожит древние фрески. Между тем статус настенной живописи Рождественского собора неясен: паспорт на объект культурного наследия не составлен, предмет охраны и балансовая стоимость не определены. Пока сотрудники музея готовили служебные записки областным чиновникам, где обосновывали необходимость музейного режима охраны Рождественского собора, директор, не поставив их в известность, одним росчерком пера расторг охранный договор. Никаких закрепленных на бумаге охранных обязательств в отношении памятника со стороны Росимущества и РПЦ хранителям предъявлено не было.

ОБРАЩЕНИЕ
Мы, представители культурной и научной общественности России, крайне обеспокоены критической ситуацией, сложившейся вокруг уникального памятника архитектуры и монументальной живописи собора Рождества Богородицы Снетогорского монастыря (1311-1313 гг.) в Пскове.
Единственный в своем роде памятник культуры федерального значения передается местной религиозной организации для использования в уставных (богослужебных) целях.
Мы, нижеподписавшиеся, выражаем свое несогласие с фактом расторжения 17.07.2012 г. Территориальным управлением «Росимущества» в Псковской области охранного договора на безвозмездное пользование памятником истории и культуры «Собор Рождества Богородицы Снетогорского монастыря» с Псковским государственным объединенным историко-художественным и архитектурным музеем-заповедником, как гарантом сохранности.
Мы не согласны с передачей памятника истории и культуры с уникальными псковскими фресками XIV века для использования в религиозных целях местной религиозной организации «Рождества Богородицы Снетогорский женский монастырь» Псковской Епархии Русской Православной Церкви и считаем это решение угрожающим для сохранения фресок.
Мы протестуем против келейного решения этого вопроса представителями государственных органов и учреждений, которое произошло без общественного обсуждения, без учета мнения специалистов и ценности фресковых росписей, не имеющих аналогов в мире.

Глубокоуважаемый Владимир Владимирович!

Убедительно просим Вас отменить ошибочное решение и вернуть собор Рождества Богородицы Снетогорского монастыря в пользование Псковскому государственному объединенному историко-художественному и архитектурному музею-заповеднику, а так же содействовать в полном финансировании исследовательских и реставрационных работ в этом храме и в дальнейшей защите уникального памятника истории и культуры.
  ================================
  Ninth biennial conference of the
Chicago Area Ancient Philosophy Consortium in Ancient Greek
and Roman Philosophy:

Animality: Greco-Roman Conceptions of the Human Being

The conference will take place on October 12 & 13 on the
Northwestern and University of Chicago campuses.

The speakers are:

* Rachana Kamtekar (Arizona)
* David O'Connor (Notre Dame)
* Eric Brown (Washington University in St. Louis)
* Hendrik Lorenz (Princeton)
* Tamar Gendler (Yale)
* Brooke Holmes (Princeton)
* Ursula Coope (Oxford)

You can find more information, including paper titles, hotel
information, and a full schedule, at our website:
http://groups.philosophy.northwestern.edu/greek-roman/cacap9/index.html

The conference will focus on the following questions:
How are humans different from other animals? And how should our
being animals matter to us? We are interested both in how our
distinctive human features affect or transform the faculties we share
with other animals, and in how our animality affects our cognition
and our good. Is part of us a beast and if so must we fight it or tame it?
Should we instead embrace it? Ancient philosophers' answers to these
questions deeply influenced their accounts of perception, pleasure,
emotion, desire, locomotion, cognition and the good life. Our conference
will explore their answers, put them in their historical context and see
how they relate to today's philosophical concerns.

Hope to see you there!

Theme: Death
Subtitle: The Cultural Meaning of the End of Life
Type: Graduate Conference 2013
Institution: Centre for the Arts in Society (LUCAS), Leiden University
Location: Leiden (Netherlands)
Date: 24.–25.1.2013
Deadline: 15.11.2012Death is a defining factor in the explorations of our subjectivity,
art, history,politics, and many other aspects of our social
interactions and perceptions of the world. In the modern age,
conceptions of death have continued to shift and evolve, yet our
perceptions are still fueled by an instinctive fear of the end of
life.

In recent decades, we have rebelled against the threat of death by
inventing new technologies and medicines that have drastically
increased our life expectancy – diseases and disabilities are
gradually disappearing. Some believe that one day we will completely
conquer the aging process, and ultimately death. Life can now be seen
as a new form of commodity, a material object that we can trade,
sell, or buy.

Despite our attempts to shut-out death or overcome its inevitability,
the end of life has remained a visible and unavoidable aspect of our
society. From antiquity to the present day, perceptions of death have
been represented through various different mediums: visual culture,
art, literature, music, historical writing, cinema,religious symbols,
national anniversaries, and public expressions of mourning.

This conference aims to explore how death has been represented and
conceptualized, from classical antiquity to the modern age, and the
extent to which our perceptions and understandings of death have
changed (or remained the same) over time. The wide scope of this
theme reflects the historical range of LUCAS's (previously called
LUICD) three research programs (Classics and Classical Civilization,
Medieval and Early Modern Studies and Modern and Contemporary
Studies), as well as the intercontinental and interdisciplinary focus
of many of the institute's research projects.

Proposals

The LUCAS Graduate Conference welcomes papers from all disciplines
within the humanities. The topic of your proposal may address the
concept of death from a cultural, historical, classical, artistic,
literary, cinematic, political, economic, or social viewpoint.

Questions that might be raised include:
How have different cultures imagined the end of life? What is the
role of art (literature, or cinema) in cultural conceptions of death?
How might historical or contemporary conceptualizations of death be
related to the construction of our subjectivity and cultural
identity? What is the cultural meaning(s) of death? To what extent
has modern warfare changed our perceptions of death? How is death
presented in the media and how has this changed? In what ways has
religion influenced our reflections on death and the afterlife?

Please send your proposal (max. 300 words) to present a 20-minute
paper to <
lucasconference2013@gmail.com>. The deadline for proposals
is 15 November, 2012. You will be notified whether or not your paper
has been selected by 1 December, 2012.

As with the previous LUCAS Graduate Conference (2011), a selection of
papers will be published in the conference proceedings. For those who
attend the conference, there will be a registration fee of EU 45 to
cover the cost of lunches, coffee breaks, and other conference
materials. Unfortunately we cannot offer financial support at this
time.

If you have any questions regarding the conference and/or the
proposals, please do not hesitate to contact the organizing committee
at:
lucasconference2013@gmail.com. Further details will be available
online in the Fall.

Keynote Speakers:
Professor Joanna Woodall, Courtauld Institute of Art, United Kingdom

Lord Plant appointed to 415-Year-Old Divinity Professorship



Gresham College, London’s oldest Higher Education Institution, is
delighted to announce the appointment of Professor the Lord (Raymond)
Plant of Highfield, Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy at
King’s College London, as Gresham Professor of Divinity.

________

In his role as Professor of Divinity at Gresham College, Lord Plant will
continue the 415-year-old tradition of delivering free public lectures
aimed at the intelligent and interested public within the City of London
and beyond.

The series of free public lectures to be delivered during 2012-13 will be
on Religion and Values in a Liberal State: The Morals of Markets. The
hour-long free public lectures will take place at the Museum of London,
EC2:

Moral Values and Limits of Markets – Tuesday 9th October 2012, 1pm

Markets, Freedom and Choice – Tuesday 27th November 2012, 1pm

Just Markets – Tuesday 29th January 2013, 1pm

Selling Yourself Short: The Body, Property and Markets – Tuesday 26th
February 2013, 1pm

What’s It Worth: Values, Choice and Commodification – Tuesday 9th April
2013, 1pm

Trust in Markets? – Tuesday 14th May 2013, 1pm

These lectures will focus on some of the central ideas and principles that
make up a liberal democratic society and its associated market economy,
looking in detail at what a theological understanding can add to these
questions. Freedom, justice, rights, community, civic virtue, property and
charity – all of these are vitally important ideas and values in
understanding modern society and there is a rich tradition of thought,
including theological thought, about what they mean and how these meanings
should be reflected in institutions. Thinking further on these values will
lead to a better understanding of social justice and injustice, poverty
and freedom, community and individuality, and rights and obligations in
the context of a liberal capitalist society.

[Full lecture descriptions are available from the Gresham College website:
www.gresham.ac.uk]

________

Lord Plant has been Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy at
the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London since 2002. Prior to
that, Lord Plant was Master of St. Catherine’s College Oxford from 1994 to
2000, and Professor of European Political Thought at the University of
Southampton. He is also currently honorary professor in the Department of
Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Winchester. His
academic interests focus on political, social and legal philosophy,
particularly conceptual issues to do with welfare, particularly ideas such
as needs, rights, obligations and community. He has published and lectured
widely on the role of religion in the context of a modern state, society
and economy. Since 1992 Lord Plant has been a Member of the House of
Lords, where he is currently on the Delegated Legislation Scrutiny
Committee. Previously he has been Opposition Spokesperson for Home Affairs
and the Chair of the Labour Party Commission on Electoral Systems, as well
as being a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights and of the Law
and Institutions Committee of the Committee on the European Communities.

________

The Divinity chair dates back to the College’s founding in 1597. Gresham
College was the first higher education institution in England besides the
Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and it was created with the guiding
principle of providing free education for all. Gresham College has seen
the Royal Society formed within the College, and past luminaries including
Sir Christopher Wren, Robert Hooke, the Lord Bishop Richard Chartres,
Richard Holloway, and Lord (Richard) Harries. The College continues to
fill lecture halls for its four or so free public lectures every week. All
Gresham lectures are made available on the internet after the event, where
they join the online archive of over 1,200 lectures.

Workshop theme and questions

Identity, Religion and Ethnicity are three terms interrelated and
become all important issues in the European Union and its
neighbourhood. The socio-economic transformations of societies
resulting from immigration and emigration of people, mindsets,
symbols are forcing the change on identity and citizenship relations.
Today, a high degree of human mobility, telecommunications have
contributed to the new understanding of citizenship as a mode of
identity in relation to national identity, ethnicity, religion and
social movements. Belonging to an ethnic-religious group and
consequent features are increasingly either blurred or strengthened
in the new national and international contexts. The motivations and
modes of belonging and identifying are much more diverse. It is
therefore useful to explore relatively new patterns of the
interactions between religion, identity and ethnicity issues. As
noted "ethnicity, and nationality" are not only concepts in the world
but they are ways of perception of that world. They are ways of
understanding and identifying oneself, making sense of one's problems
and predicaments, identifying one's interests, and orienting one's
actions. They are also ways of recognizing, identifying, and
classifying other people, of construing sameness and difference, and
of "coding" and making sense of their actions" (Brubaker, Loveman,
and Stamatov 2004). The workshop proposes to analyse the relation
between these three notions interconnected in different political,
cultural and economic cases to understand also some challenges and
pitfalls in a pluralalistic societies.

Workshop issues

What are the relationships between identity, ethnicity and
citizenship in a global world? What are the new patterns of ethnic
identities in pluralistic societies? Can globalization de-ethnicize
religion? How are ethnic and religious identities changed when faced
with social and economic transitions? What are the roles of social
movements in these undergoing changes? What are the challenges for
the classic ethno-religious identity? Can 'nation state models'
influence the plurality of religious and ethnic groups? How does EU
reconcile with ethnic pluralism and diversity?

Participants in the workshop about Identity, Religion and Ethnicity
will explore possible answers to these questions. The workshop will
analyse the interaction and the interpenetration of nationality,
ethnicity and identity through the problematic of transnationalism,
globalization and nation-state perspectives. The workshop will be
supplemented by practical visits to local communities. Participants
are invited to consider the theoretical debates and issues in
differing local areas with a variety of social practitioners and
representatives to gain further insights of demographic, economic,
philosophic, legal and socio-anthropological approaches. This
workshop looks at identity, citizenship and ethnicity issues across
Belgium as well as in Turkey, focused primarily on Belgium-EU cases.

Topics of Workshops

The workshop will be organized around three central themes.

Authors are invited to send abstracts (maximum 500 words) of their
papers on themes of their own choosing, which may include (by way of
example only):

1. Ethnicity and ethno-nationalism
- Multiple language policies and education
- Racism and nationalism
- Immigration, assimilation and national history

2. Religion and ethnic identities

Call for Papers:
48th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, MI (May
9-12, 2013)

Time and the Medieval Object
Sponsor: The Material Collective
Organizers: Gerry Guest, John Carroll University, and Maggie Williams,
William Paterson University.

This session will consider the complex relationship between art objects
and time in the Middle Ages and beyond.  It proceeds from the notion
that medieval things refuse to remain fixed in single temporal moments.
 Instead, they reach back into the past and also anticipate their
future lives through a variety of strategies, both materialist and
idealist.

Medieval objects are regularly marked by a temporal instability.
Ancient and foreign spolia were integrated into fine golden church
furnishings and reliquaries. Composite objects made connections across
time through stylistic affiliations and iconographic citations, and
they were regularly altered through the addition of new components and
the removal of old. They were also subject to wear and tear through
ongoing use and occasional repurposing. Gifting and other changes of
setting created complex genealogies mapped out over time.  Medieval
objects continued to exist beyond the Middle Ages, and their impact on
subsequent moments in time could also be a focus for proposed papers.
Speakers should feel free to draw on theoretical developments in areas
such as object-oriented philosophy, thing theory, and other realms of
thought.

Please send brief abstracts (no more than 500 words) by August 30, 2012
to Gerry Guest (
gguest@jcu.edu) and/or Maggie Williams

Deadline: 16.9.2012

__________________________________________________


In submitted papers we will be looking for constructive thinking
which will be focused on the relationship to and the construction of
the others in any level of humanistic thought.

The goal is to point out and inquire about the concept of the other
or others in relationship to our own existence.

Questions like these come to mind: Who or what is the other? How does
the other appear? What is the role and position of the other in the
process of formation and establishing and keeping our own identity?
Why having others? Why the need for being different and not diverse?
What kind of interactions appear between us and others? How it feels
when we become the other? Is this classification apparent in today's
social climate? Can we learn something about people and their society
from the way they accept others? How are others articulated and what
kind of discourse appears in connection to them? Where are the
differences most apparent and why in those areas? How important is
differentiation and where it leads? What is natural in
differentiation, if anything at all? Is differentiation good or
should it be avoided?

We are interested in the others in relationship with gender,
religion, continent, country (nationality), culture (subculture and
contra culture), ethnicity, sexual orientation, world view (values),
family, individual, and also others; others in media, school, work
place, everyday life, social difference, literature, history, etc.

Who is being addressed with the term other; society or nature,
foreigner or enemy, us or them?

Call for Papers: Gender and Medieval Studies Conference 2013 - Call For
Papers
Gender in Material Culture

Corsham Court, Bath Spa University
4th-6th January 2013

Keynote Speakers:
Prof. Catherine Karkov, University of Leeds
Dr Simon Yarrow, University of Birmingham

From saintly relics to grave goods, and from domestic furnishings to the
built environment, medieval people inhabited a material world saturated
with symbolism. Gender had a profound influence on production and
consumption in this material culture. Birth charms and objects of Marian
devotion were crafted most often with women in mind, whilst gender shaped
the internal spaces of male and female religious houses. The material
environment could evoke intense emotions from onlookers, whether fostering
reverence in religious rituals, or inspiring awe during royal processions.
How did gender influence encounters with these objects and the built
environment? Seldom purely functional, these items could incorporate
complex meanings, enabling acts of display at every level of society, in
fashionable circles at European courts or amongst civic guilds sponsoring
lavish pageants. Did gender influence aesthetic choices, and how did
status shape the way that people engaged with their physical surroundings?
In literary texts and in art, the depiction of clothing and objects can be
used to negotiate symbolic space as well as class, gender, sexuality and
ethnicity. Texts and images also circulated as material objects
themselves, with patterns of transmission across the British Isles, the
Anglo-Norman world, and between East and West. The exchange of such
objects both accompanied and enacted cross-fertilisation in linguistic,
political and cultural spheres.

The Conference will consider the gendered nature of social, religious and
economic uses of 'things', exploring the way that objects and material
culture were produced, consumed and displayed. Papers will address
questions of gender from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives,
embracing literature, history, art history, and archaeology.

Themes will include:

 *   adornment, clothing and self-fashioning
 *   the material culture of devotion
 *   objects and materialism
 *   the material culture of children and adolescents
 *   the material culture of life cycle
 *   emotion, intimacy and love-gifts
 *   entertainment and games
 *   memory and commemoration
 *   pleasure, pain, and bodily discipline
 *   production and consumption
 *   monastic material culture
 *   material culture in literary texts

Please e-mail proposals of approximately 300 words for 20 minute papers to
the GMS committee<mailto:
gms.bathspa.2013@gmail.com> by 14 September 2012.
Please also include your name, research area, institution and level of
study in your abstract"Post-Atheism":
Religion, Society, and Culture in Post-Communist
Eastern Europe and Eurasia

The Melikian Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies at
Arizona State University is pleased to announce an international
symposium on "Post-Atheism" in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, to be held
on the ASU campus in Tempe, Arizona, February 7-9, 2013. The symposium
will feature presentations by international visiting scholars from
Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Russia, and elsewhere from the
region. Professor Jose Casanova (Georgetown University), author of
Public Religions in the Modern World, will keynote the symposium on
Thursday, February 7.

The symposium is designed to address one of the most fascinating and
controversial issues of the post-communist world—namely, the new
public role of religion in East European and Eurasian society. Is
there separation of church and state in today's Eastern Europe, Russia
or Eurasia? Are Iranian-like theocracies a possibility in some
regions? Is the forceful entry of religion into the public sphere a
fleeting fashion or a deeper phenomenon of lasting importance? How
does this recovery of religious identity intersect with prevailing
theory on secularization? How has religion been reintroduced into the
Academy and public education? How are the relationships between
dominant religious faith traditions and minority confessions (often
stigmatized as "destructive sects") affected in the region?

The conference is intended to generate sustained debate and discussion
on a variety of perspectives relating to all the major faith
traditions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism) of the region,
from Central and Southeastern Europe to Russia, Ukraine,
Transcaucasia, Central Asia, and Mongolia. We will also welcome
panels/roundtables/individual presentations dealing with
non-traditional religious movements and transnational religious
currents. Conference lodging will be provided, and limited funding
will be available to support international travel.

While we are open to other topics, we specifically invite individual
and panel proposals on the following themes:

· Religion, National Identity and Conflict: The Role of Religious
Actors in Framing Ideologies of Nationalism and Transnational
Globalization; Ethno-religious Conflict and Peacemaking.
· Religion and Policymaking: Clerics and Religious Institutions in the
Public Arena.
· Religion and Education: Theology vs. Religious Studies in the
Academy; Religion in Public Education.
· Religion, Sexuality, and Gender: Patriarchy, Gender Equality, and
LGBT Issues in Modern Religious Culture.
· Religion and Culture: Popular Culture, Literature, TV/Film, Folklore.

Please send us a brief (250-word limit) abstract of your individual
paper/panel proposal and a one-page bio or CV.

Deadline for Proposal Submission: August 1, 2012

Subject: CFP: Death: the Cultural Meaning of the End of Life (Leiden,
24-25 Jan 13)

Leiden University, Netherlands, January 24 - 25, 2013
Deadline: Nov 15, 2012

Leiden University Graduate Conference

"Death: the Cultural Meaning of the End of Life"

Death is a defining factor in the explorations of our subjectivity,
art, history, politics, and many other aspects of our social
interactions and perceptions of the world. In the modern age,
conceptions of death have continued to shift and evolve, yet our
perceptions are still fueled by an instinctive fear of the end of life.

Despite our attempts to shut-out death or overcome its inevitability,
the end of life has remained a visible and unavoidable aspect of our
society. From antiquity to the present day, perceptions of death have
been represented through various different mediums: visual culture,
art, literature, music, historical writing, cinema, religious symbols,
national anniversaries, and public expressions of mourning.

This conference aims to explore how death has been represented and
conceptualized, from classical antiquity to the modern age, and the
extent to which our perceptions and understandings of death have
changed (or remained the same) over time. The wide scope of this theme
reflects the historical range of LUCAS's (previously called LUICD)
three research programs (Classics and Classical Civilization, Medieval
and Early Modern Studies and Modern and Contemporary Studies), as well
as the intercontinental and interdisciplinary focus of many of the
institute's research projects.

PROPOSALS:
The LUCAS Graduate Conference welcomes papers from all disciplines
within the humanities. The topic of your proposal may address the
concept of death from a cultural, historical, classical, artistic,
literary, cinematic, political, economic, or social viewpoint.

Questions that might be raised include: How have different cultures
imagined the end of life? What is the role of art (literature, or
cinema) in cultural conceptions of death? How might historical or
contemporary conceptualizations of death be related to the construction
of our subjectivity and cultural identity? What is the cultural
meaning(s) of death? To what extent has modern warfare changed our
perceptions of death? How is death presented in the media and how has
this changed? In what ways has religion influenced our reflections on
death and the afterlife?

Please send your proposal (max. 300 words) to present a 20-minute paper
to
lucasconference2013@gmail.com. The deadline for proposals is 15
November, 2012. You will be notified whether or not your paper has been
selected by 1 December, 2012.

As with the previous LUCAS Graduate Conference (2011), a selection of
papers will be published in the conference proceedings. For those who
attend the conference, there will be a registration fee of €45 to cover
the cost of lunches, coffee breaks, and other conference materials.
Unfortunately we cannot offer financial support at this time.

If you have any questions regarding the conference and/or the
proposals, please do not hesitate to contact the organizing committee
at:
lucasconference2013@gmail.com. Further details will be available
online in the Fall.
