Mapping Architectural Criticism Third International Symposium
Ce colloque international s’inscrit dans le Programme ANR Mapping Architectural Criticism (2015-2017), dont l’objectif est de développer un champ de recherche sur la critique architecturale des dernières décennies du XIXe siècle à aujourd’hui. Il débattra deux questions clé, relatives aux « géographies » de la critique d’architecture : ses frontières disciplinaires et ses territoires partagés, notamment avec la critique d’autres disciplines, depuis les dernières décennies du XIXe siècle.
L’autoportrait déguisé, à la frontière de la satire et du carnavalesque, peut masquer ou camoufler le sujet pour diverses raisons ; il peut poser la question de l’intégrité du corps, de l’individualité et de l’authenticité, notamment quand l’artiste s’engage dans un travail sériel. En modifiant son identité ou son sexe l’artiste explore les normes de la société dans laquelle il vit et se fait porte-parole, ou porte-corps. On propose d’étudier plus en détail ces diverses stratégies de déguisement qui sont particulièrement nombreuses dans la création contemporaine. La réflexivité et l’auto-référentialité postmodernes, mais aussi les évolutions technologiques facilitant la manipulation des images ont rendu ces pratiques aisées – comme en témoignent les selfies dans l’art, ou l’avatar (si tant est qu’il est un autoportrait déguisé).
Czech and Slovak Journal of Humanities, special musicological issue
For the upcoming issue of the peer-reviewed journal Czech and Slovak Journal of Humanities (August 2017) we are looking for studies focused on various aspects related to the phenomena of “music” and “popularity”. We invite articles anchored in classical music as well as popular music. Papers which directly or indirectly problematize the traditional polarisation of the aforementioned musical spheres are especially welcome. The issue provides space for specific historical investigations and case studies, but also for wider theoretical considerations which would reflect the construction of the phenomena of the so-called classical and popular music from social, political / ideological, economic, philosophical and other perspectives. In this respect, approaches of ethnomusicology and cultural geography, which would touch on the topic with regard to the specifics of particular localities, regions, nations and ethnic groups, are most desirable.
This workshop is organized by Felicia McCarren (Paris IAS fellow / Tulane University), Elizabeth Claire (CNRS) and Silvia Sebastiani (EHESS), with the support of the Paris IAS, CRH, CRAL, Centre Alexandre Koyré, EHESS and CNRS.
This conference is an international symposium that proposes to study the entire range of exchanges and relations established between these two areas during the Early Modern Times (1500-1820). Its main objective is to think about diplomatic, economic, religious and cultural links between Europe and the Middle East by calling upon over twenty researchers with specializations in the Arab, Persian and Muslim world. In addition, this conference will provide a comprehensive overview to date of the Arabian Gulf at a time of major political change, including the successive arrival of the European “trading empires”. It will focus on some of the methodological challenges raised by a global, connected and cross-cultural thinking approach to the History of the Middle East and Europe”.
The Institute of Historiography “Julio Caro Baroja”, at the University of Carlos III of Madrid, is organizing an international conference titled, “Sensorium: Sensory Perceptions in the Roman Religion”. Researchers of ancient history, religious history, archeology, anthropology, classical literature, and other related disciplines, are invited to present their research relating to the poly-sensorial practice of religion in the Roman world.

Spaces, images, rituals
From the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, European monarchies saw a gradual centralisation of power. This was accompanied by the dissemination of political ideas that contributed to the making of a new image of the prince, which relied on visual instruments to assert and construct the prince’s sovereign power. Royal and princely residences with their designated state-rooms were at the centre of this phenomenon. Their decors, particularly during ceremonies, reflected political interests and ambitions that were essential to the image of the prince. By placing a particular emphasis on the decor of those state-rooms, this workshop aims to increase our insights into the relations between the architecture, decoration, and rituals of monarchical power in state-rooms from the late middle ages to the beginning of the early modern period.
Mutations, Conversions and Representations
The chosen perspective for this one-day conference is an inter- and pluri-disciplinary one and it is therefore articulated around a variety of approaches such as cultural geography, cultural history, art history, media studies, urban studies, heritage studies, architecture, etc.
Funerary sculpture: from creation to Musealization
The Instituto de Estudos Medievais (IEM) and the Instituto de História da Arte (IHA) of the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCSH/NOVA), along with the Centro de Investigação e Estudos em Belas Artes (CIEBA) of the Faculdade de Belas Artes of the Universidade de Lisboa, and in collaboration with the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga in Lisbon, are organizing the International Congress “Souls of Stone. Funerary Sculpture: from the Creation to the Musealization”. Historians, museologists, restorers and all the researchers in general working on the topic are invited to submit proposals
As a follow-up to the realizations from a previous scientific symposium on the “Old Book — Cultural-Historical and Scientific Source” (Osijek, October 25 and 26, 2013) and the second interdisciplinary scientific symposium with international participation titled “Literary Heritage Nowadays” (Osijek, November 6 and 7, 2015), by virtue of this conference the organizers would like to facilitate their in-depth analysis and upgrade while especially providing their contribution to a continued study of the opus of the Franciscan esthetician, philosophical-theological writer, Latinist, historian and translator Emerik (Mirko) Pavić (1716 – 1780), whose selected works were dispatched to be digitized within the aforementioned project, on the occasion of his 300th birth anniversary.
CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture Journal, special issue, December 2017
This volume is intended for both scholars and a general readership interested in contemporary aspects of post-communist literatures from East-Central Europe which witness a special relation between History, Memory and reshaped identity (be it personal or collective). Papers are invited to analyze strategies of remembering communism in different types of discourse, from autobiographical recollections to collective representations which re-define the post-traumatic status of the Eastern intellectuals in relation to the "rediscovered" West and their transition dilemmas.
For a century and more musicians have sought to relate their practices to the values of democracy. But political theory teaches that democracy is a highly contested category. This symposium aims to interrogate claims for the “democratic” nature of music.
L'individu au croisement du civil et du militaire
Le thème des journées d’étude est davantage une ligne conductrice, une piste de réflexion qu’un sujet délimité. Il nous amène à nous questionner sur la manière dont l’individu, soldat, civil de l’arrière ou occupé, intègre et concilie la dimension militaire d’un côté, qu’il s’agisse de son expérience au front ou de la présence de soldats allemands dans les rues de son village, et la dimension civile de l’autre. Au-delà donc d’une rencontre entre le « monde » civil et le « monde » militaire, qui seraient deux sphères séparées, il convient de penser l’individu comme étant au croisement des deux dimensions, qui le construiraient de manière conjointe.
13th Conference of the European Sociological Association, ESA 2017
The “Visual and Filmic Sociology” Research Stream seeks to observe and analyse a Europe undergoing major transformation by means of photographs and videos produced by sociologists themselves. Europe is both an abstraction and a daily reality. It is a major long-term project that brings people together while also regulating and structuring their activities. These regulations pertain to policy areas ranging from agricultural production to industrial standards, competition law and the free movement of people. At the same time, Europe disorganises production (through tax competition and social dumping, out-of-control financialisation, etc.) while exacerbating conflicts between people around problems like unemployment and social inequality. Hence the growing polarisation between the agricultural, urban, industrial and other spaces where people live.
International Conference on the values of tangible heritage
Tangible heritage is the support of some of the most relevant and perennial values of Mankind. It connects us with History, projects us to past environments and to lost cultural contexts, includes landmarks of our identity and constitutes a relevant economic asset. Therefore tangible heritage has intangible aspects inextricably associated to it and when tangible heritage is addressed, intangibility matters. Conservation of tangible heritage is a cultural act with the value approach as a leading concept. The protection statutes, the arguments used to sustain the protection policies, the management options and definition of priorities, the allocation of resources and the uses of heritage assets are intimately connected and dependent on values, bringing to focus the intangible side of their nature.
The kick-off for Norwegian University of Science and Technology's initiative in DARIAH-EU is scheduled for Wednesday 18th January 2017, 0830-1200 in Trondheim, Norway. If you have an interest in Digital Humanities, please save the date.
Aniki: Portuguese Journal of the Moving Image, thematic section of issue 4.2
This specific thematic dossier of Aniki aims to explore the notion of long duration in audiovisual media by focusing not only on the actual length of works and the time required to produce these works, but also the extent to which conditions and spaces of reception will determine and structure specific spectatorial modes and practices, and the wider aesthetic, cultural and political implications of such modes and practices when long duration is at stake.
This three-day international workshop provides an opportunity for an in-depth examination of contemporary developments in the genre of landscape and its photographic representation, and the ways in which that genre brings into focus some of the most pressing issues facing our society today.
