    Transnational Networks and the British Empire (Ca. 18-20th centuries)

    This workshop intends to bring together research scholars of history and affiliated fields working on transnational networks fostered through the British Empire. We wish to focus on how certain forms of the “empire”, the “colony”, and the “outside” mutually constituted each other. Such an approach, we believe, could illumine the dense transnational convergences that shape the political, the economic, the social, and the cultural in various locations simultaneously.

    Power and social exclusion

    Insights looking at language

    Ce numéro thématique de Language, Discourse & Society se focalise sur les exclusions sociales et les enjeux de pouvoir associés. L'exclusion sociale peut être appréhendée comme un ensemble d'actions plus ou moins concertées, situées dans le temps et dans l'espace, et exécutées par une personne vis-à-vis d'un tiers. Une attention particulière est accordée au langage en tant qu'outil de l'exclusion sociale, mais aussi de résistance à une telle discrimination et oppression.

    Comparing property markets on an international scale

    While many scholars compare property markets from the same urban area or compare the way these markets distinguish urban areas within a given country, very few propose an international comparison. And yet, this is a main scientific issue. Such comparisons would provide a new angle for studying metropolitan development as well as its internal trends relating to inequality and gentrification.

    Digital History: a Challenge of “Doing History”

    In 1973 Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie wrote that in history, as elsewhere, what counts is not the machine, but the problem. According to him, the machine is only a useful tool as it allows to tackle new questions and use original methods (“L’historien et l’ordinateur” in Le territoire de l’historien, Paris, 1973, pp. 11-14). The rise of digital technologies is changing the ways historians practice their craft. In the last twenty years, the practice of historians has changed rapidly. In the age of big data historians collect, disseminate, and store information in a different way. New digital tools in the field of history have transformed how historian can disseminate knowledge. A wide range of historians have also been brought together to focus on how digital history relate to area of traditional historical scholarships.

    Capitalist Aesthetics

    Open Cultural Studies Journal (De Gruyter)

    Open Cultural Studies, an OA peer-reviewed Journal (De Gruyter) invites submissions to a special issue on  Capitalist Aesthetics edited by Dr Pansy Duncan & Dr Nicholas Holm (Massey University The issue will explore the aesthetic configurations—from the cute to the comfortable, from the no-brow to the fringe—through which the economic logics of late capitalism come to crystallize today. It invites work that treats the stylistic and formal dimension of cultural objects, and the verdictive and affective dimensions of cultural discourse/experience, as valuable “cryptograms” of contemporary ideological formations and the economic relations they sustain.

    Queering Friendship | citizenship, care and choice

    Intimate Final Conference

    Contrary to individualization theories that suggest the impoverishment of human relationships, theories of relationality recognize the increasing centrality of informal networks of solidarity and care. In this debate, friendship plays a fundamental role. The mutual implications of intimacy and citizenship need to be addressed, exploring the extent to which issues of LGBTQ friendship matter (or not) in being recognized as citizens. The centrality of friendship is even more striking when considering personal lives of trans and non-binary people, but also lesbian women, gay men and bisexual people, LGBTQ migrants and other intersecting, vulnerable groups. In particular, the way transgender people actively provide and receive different care between friends offers invaluable contributions to political debates and conceptual discussions around friendship and care as a key aspect of LGBTQ everyday life. Unveiling the richness of the blurred spaces of intimacy, the ways in which LGBTQ people produce alternatives to family-based forms of cohabitation are also of critical importance. LGBTQ lived experiences further contribute to destabilizing the family/friends and public/private binaries, whilst challenging heterocisnormative expectations about who legitimately belongs to the intimate sphere and who remains excluded and/or invisible.

    Les effets de la première guerre mondiale sur les églises chrétiennes

    11 November 1918 saw the end of the First World War, known at the time as the “Great War” (1914-1918) for its global scale, extreme destructivity and unseen casualty rates. On the one hand, wars evoke heroism and patriotism and bring people and groups to alter their mental boundaries and abilities. On the other hand, wars also elicit hatred, envy and violent behaviour, the settling of hidden accounts, the abandonment of ethical standards, and deep divisions and confrontations between families and societies. Since effects of the first world conflict were enormous and the shock waves were felt for years and generations to come, the question arises about the impact of the Great War on religion and the established churches.

    Multi-ethnic cities in the Mediterranean world

    History, culture, heritage

    This meeting aims to foster a discussion about the continuities and disruptions which have conditioned the multi-ethnic dimension of Mediterranean cities. We would like to focus on the specificities of places and time in our millennial history that have produced both tangible and intangible cultural heritage. We would like to broaden the traditional horizons of our disciplines under the issues of our times, questioning the role of historical research and the forms of scientific communication nowadays, when old practices seem more challenged than ever by the overwhelming expansion of new technologies.

    Interrogating the “Trente glorieuses”

    Models of Statehood in Postwar Europe

    Understanding the Trente glorieuses not as a political-economic realitybut as a specific model of statehood with specific ideologicalunderpinnings opens a new way of looking at this period. At thisconference we want to reevaluate the political and intellectualpreconceptions on which the post-war decades are based and investigatetheir diffusion and circulation in democratic and non-democraticEuropean contexts. Focusing on the whole of Europe and not merely on astylized Western European model will allow us to broaden ourunderstanding of this time period and highlight concrete understandingsof statehood, the economy and democratic government. Examining thestatus, the adaptations and variations of the trente glorieuses modeland its synonyms across different political and social contexts inEurope after 1945 will allow us to reflect on the construction of thistime period in historical, political and economic thought.

    No country for anthropologists?

    Contemporary ethnographic research in the Middle East

    Many parts of the contemporary Middle East are confronted with war, sectarianism, transnational interferences, uprisings, and a comeback of authoritarian regimes. This brings about various difficulties for ethnographic research as a practice of knowledge production based on the immersion of researchers in given social contexts and the subsequent writing up and publishing of texts. The international conference No country for anthropologists? Contemporary ethnographic research in the Middle East explores the obstacles to do ethnography in the Middle East and take them as the starting point for reflection upon the role of anthropology with a view to the Middle East of today.
