This section will focus on the representations of urban spaces and urban lives in the Americas, with special regard to the languages and the social practices that convey – or that have conveyed in the past – the idea of “making the city”. We are especially interested both in grassroots movements of urban resistance and in counter-hegemonic representations of the urban space. We welcome contributions on practices of re-appropriation of the city, on the strategies of resistance to the processes of gentrification, on the relationship between urban space and subaltern groups (minorities and/or subcultures) and on the ways in which the urban space has been represented, reimagined or invented in literature, cinema, comics, music, photography, television, visual arts.
Panel at the European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC)
This panel aims to study settlement patterns of migrants, according to a gendered approach. It aims to bring together scholars working on migration and settlement dynamics, by focusing on the extension and quality of relationships that newcomers could develop in the new environment and by highlighting differences between men and women. In addition it aims to investigate how these ties influenced, successfully or not, their settlement process: the daily life, the research of a job or a house, the access to credit networks, to poor relief or to other urban resources etc...
A Nordic networks for comics research (NNCORE) conference
“Comics and memory” is an international Nordic networks for comics research (NNCORE) conference organized at the University of Ghent from April 19-21, 2017, in collaboration with the KU Leuven, UCLouvain (GRIT), and the ACME comics research group (University of Liège). This three-day conference examines the complex relationships between comics and memory through the prisms of personal, collective, and medial forms as well as practices of remembering.
A biopolitics perspective
Migrant children are often at the crossroads of conflicting priorities related to local and global issues (conflict, displacement, poverty, (under)development). Throughout history, states, organisations, institutions, and communities have tried to manage and control migrants and migratory processes. While the latter topic has been the subject of extensive research, the study of child migration lags behind. This workshop aims to address this gap by adopting Foucault’s theoretical framework of biopolitics – a control apparatus exerted over a population – to the case of children.
The Department of Gender Studies and Islamic Studies of the University of Zurich is organizing the first workshop of the Gender in University and Society (GENiUS) network on “Concepts that Matter! Terminologies of Women and Gender in Transnational Perspective”. GENiUS is an informal Swiss-Arab Network of academics specialized in the field of Gender Studies in and on the Arab region that aims at fostering scientific exchange on the levels of research, teaching and institution building.
Now more than ever, gender as an analytical concept is being heavily contested from diverse quarters inside as well as outside academia. The panel discussion addresses key questions of how to teach gender as critical theory in the light of current societal and political tensions on the one hand and institutional constraints inside the university on the other hand. How can we teach “critique”? What does teaching gender mean in terms of methods and topics? And how can we engage in critical research and teaching while responding to societal expectations as to relevant output and knowledge transfer?
International Study Group on Norm Conflicts and Art Forms in (Un)Making of Publics
Public space is the place for assembly of people, empowerment of persons. It is the hub of democracy as well as the manifestation of state power. PubliCdemoS Project explores the ways in which new forms of public agency extends politics to everyday life experiences, opening up avenues of artistic expressions and aesthetic forms. The core aim of this project is to renew democratic agendas by politics of performative citizenship and public making in multicultural settings.

Nº 4 (2017)
The editors of Hamsa: Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies are very pleased to announce the journal is now accepting proposals for its 4th volume.
A number of publications have addressed the question of the coexistence of Buddhism and violence, ultimately concluding that there is no paradox between the two. In various cultural and historical contexts in Asia, the presence of Buddhism as the state religion has often involved the recourse to violence and the maintenance of an army as a necessity of government. Likewise, the policies of Buddhist rulers have repeatedly invoked religious reasons to justify military activities aimed at defending the Dharma. We invite research contributions based on primary sources illustrating the role of the Tibetan Army vis-à-vis different aspects of the Buddhist religion during the historical period of the Ganden Phodrang.

Doctrines, Agents, Pathways (19th-20th Centuries)
An interdisciplinary conference organised by the IHC-FCSH/NOVA (Instituto de História Contemporânea da Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade NOVA de Lisboa), intending to approach the distinct dimensions of Southern Europe's case as peripheral economies and their integration in diplomatic relationships.
L'objectif de cette conférence internationale est d'engager une réflexion multi- et interdisciplinaire, associant les différentes parties prenantes, sur la question de l'utilisation et de l'utilité des résultats de recherches en sciences humaines et sociales (SHS) par et pour les professionnels de la santé au sens large. À partir d’exemples de recherches réalisées ou en cours de réalisation, nous explorerons la question de la « translation » ou « implémentation » des résultats de recherches en SHS au champ de la médecine et de la santé, en d'autre termes, comment et sous quelles conditions, des « résultats » de travaux en SHS sont mobilisés et utilisés par différents acteurs dans le champ de la médecine et de la santé. L’objectif est de mieux comprendre les processus de communication et de diffusion des connaissances en SHS ainsi que les conditions, formes et modalités de leur utilisation.
The ends of World War I and their legacies
The Max Weber Foundation, the German Historical Institute (GHI) in Washington DC, the American Historical Association (AHA) with the National History Center (NHC), and the German Historical Association propose to convene a conference that takes a fresh look at the end of World War I, the events of 1917–1923, at the immediate post-Versailles period and at the cultural, social, and political ripples that the postwar settlements sent across the globe in subsequent decades. The conference takes place from March 22-24, 2018 in Washington, DC, at the German Historical Institute.
“Africa e Mediterraneo” Journal
The debate on asylum and migration is bringing to light the theme of return; not that of an old migrant returning to his country of origin after a lifetime of work, but that of the younger generations who still find themselves in the midst of an existential and professional journey. There are more and more questions on the phenomenon of asylum seekers forced to deal with this step due to their asylum request being denied or their integration into society failing, as well as on the cases in which migrants return home deliberately out of choice with an enterprise project possibly favored by national and international policies.
Diffusion and reception from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern Period
The saints of Rome have always been among the most venerated and the most popular heavenly patrons in Christendom, grafting the noble air of universality and integration onto emerging Christian cultures. From the apostles and Early Christian martyrs through the Early Modern period and beyond, the textual and material dissemination of Roman saints made a significant impact on the rise of the cult of the saints. Post-Tridentine Roman cults spread by the Society of Jesus and the revival of catacomb cults brought a new wave in the world-wide cult of the saints of Rome in the early modern period.
Hegemonic neo-liberal discourse assumes that free competition on all levels sparks a virtuous cycle of economic growth, which eventually trickles down to poor populations. Over the past three decades, the idea that restrictive labour laws hamper such competition has justified the deregulation of labour in the North and the un-regulation of labour in the South, notably in South Asia, where labour relations had already mainly been informal. Various sociologists have noted that intensified economic interactions and the rise of competition have made individuals more likely to activate their social networks to protect their individual interests. In this respect, to what extent do social networks shape relations in the diverse South Asian labour markets? How do new forms of social groupings reconfigure competition and solidarity relations? What forms of social interactions prevail, emerge and weaken in the market: chosen solidarity and inherited solidarity; inter-caste and intra-caste solidarity; class solidarity; corporate solidarity etc.?
This meeting aims to analyze the relationship of the Atlantic, with particular emphasis on the Azores, the complex logistical support to the belligerents, regardless of the stage of war being European or colonial, and the multiple dynamics involved, whether political, economic, ideological or geographical. Likewise, it seeks to value and dignify not only the memory of those who act as, but the material and immaterial heritage, in the year in which the bombing of the main Azorean city and the creation of a foreign naval base in its territory is evoked.
