This research area has coalesced around the idea of “acts” defined as operations that involve the human body with a precise purpose and often requiring an apprenticeship. Archaeologists, historians and literary scholars come together around this idea for one and the same reason: to rediscover the social dynamics that lie behind the written or material records through three themes. First, the reconstruction of acts of craftsmanship looks into the processes involved in a string of operations from preparation of a material to its manufacture into an object or monument. The diversity of research at the Ausonius Institute makes it possible to address all aspects of acts of craftsmanship by favouring two scales, that of the place of production and that of the finished product, object or monument. In addition, we are interested in ritual acts, envisaged in a broad manner, in that that they touch on the representation of a social group and contribute to its identity, its memory and the introduction of social norms. The sources addressed here are rich and varied: funerary archaeology, images, written sources, etc. All these acts are part of the study of social practices, considered here in diachronic and interdisciplinary terms.
