Participación de Grégory Reimond en el 24th Annual Meeting EAA – Barcelona
Grégory Reimond, doctorando de la Universidad de Touluse e investigador predoctoral en la Casa de Velázquez, así como miembro de nuestro proyecto de investigación, ha participado en el 24th Annual Meeting EAA, que tuvo lugar en Barcelona entre los días 5 y 8 de septiembre de 2018. G. Reimond presentó una ponencia titulada «Teaching Archaeology and Art History in the 19th century: the case of Pierre Paris in Bordeaux (1885-1913)» cuyo resumen añadimos a continuación:
Pierre Paris was a famous scholar, known for his work on Iberian Culture (in 1897, he bought the bust of the Dama de Elche for the Louvre) and for the organisation of French investigation in Spain through the creation of the École des Hautes Études Hispaniques (1909) and the Casa de Velázquez (1920). But between 1885 and 1913, he was also a Professor of Archaeology and Art History; this is a forgotten point of his work. Paris received training in archaeology in the French School at Athens between 1882 and 1885. When he came back to France, the support of the French School director, Paul Foucart, allowed him to obtain a post in the University of Bordeaux. Archaeology was then a young academic discipline. The first chair in France was created in Paris in 1876 for Georges Perrot. Between 1876 and 1883, Maxime Collignon taught Greek archaeology in Bordeaux. But his departure to the Sorbonne University prevented him from perpetuating this teaching. For the young Pierre Paris, everything was still to be done. He was the one who actually organized this teaching in Bordeaux by adapting the German university model with the creation of seminars, the foundation of a museum that collected together plaster-cast copies of Greek and Roman statues and architectural sculptures, the redaction of the museum’s catalogue with his students, etc. Using unpublished archives, our contribution aims to study his action as a teacher in Bordeaux in a key moment, when the French University was being reformed under the 3rd Republic.
