    Litany in the Arts and Culture

    The litany derives from ancient religious rites. Throughout the ages, however, it spread across many countries and became much more than a mere form of prayer. As has been demonstrated by our recent studies on the litanic forms in European poetry it is possible to reconstruct a cultural and literary map of European regions that traces the level of their participation in and contribution to the litanic tradition. The litanic verse is marked by religious semantics, but it also bears the mark of inter-European divisions, such as those experienced between and within various denominations, countries and nations, as well as the original folk cultures. Therefore, the litany may be of interest to scholars specializing in areas such the emergence of national identities and religious minorities, the crossover between art and religion as well as between music and poetry, the history of liturgy and spiritual life, the cultural exchanges between various nations.

    Modernist Objects

    Third International Conference of the French Society for Modernist Studies (SEM)

    Modernist art and literature focused on the mundane, as emblematized by the everyday object, which now crystallized our changing relation to the world. Papers could examine the claim that the poetry and prose, the visual and performing arts, and the music of the Modernist era accounted for a shift in object relations with an intensity of observation in proportion with the changes which so profoundly affected the experience of living in industrial times.

    Broadcasting health and disease

    Bodies, markets and television, 1950s-1980s

    The three-day conference aims to investigate how television programmes in their multiplicity approached issues like medical progress and its limits, healthy behaviour or new forms of exercise by adapting them to TV formats and programming...The conference seeks to analyse how television and its evolving formats expressed and staged bodies, health and fitness from local, regional, national and international perspectives. How spectators were invited not only to be TV consuming audiences, but how shows and TV set-ups integrated and sometimes pretended to transform the viewer into a participant of the show. TV programmes spread the conviction that subjects had the ability to shape their own body.

    Modernisme et Ruralité : un point sur l'état des recherches (EAHN 2018 - Tallin)

    5eme rencontre international du Réseau Européen d'Histoire de l'Architecture, à Tallinn, juin 2018

    This session aims to address, from a historical perspective, the relation between, on one side, architecture and the related disciplines, and on the other side, agriculture and rurality at large. We welcome proposals specifically mapping case studies concerned with large-scale agricultural development and/or colonization schemes conceived and (but not necessarily) implemented in Europe and beyond during modern times (late 18th-20th century), strongly connected to nation- and State-building processes, and to the modernization of the countryside. We are particularly interested in those examples which aimed to “make the difference” in both scale and numbers, entailing radical reshaping of previously uninhabited or sparsely populated areas into new, planned, “total” rural landscapes.

    Cinéma diasporique sud-asiatique : Rencontres

    The fourth issue of /DESI/ will focus on the question of encounters in diasporic South Asian cinema: Afghanistan, India, Maldives, Pakistan, Bangladesh Nepal and Sri Lanka. The transformation of this contemporary human condition into filmic material coincides with a turn in the scientific study of diasporas. Forced migrations, which generate a movement of displacement and settlement in home territories, movements of arrivals, caught in a logic of deterritorialization, diasporas – and more particularly South Asian diasporas – are all relocated in transnational and transcultural spaces. Cinema holds a mirror to this experience of movement through this new “ethnoscape” (Appadurai) made up of shifts and disjunctures, free flows and political hurdles, border-crossings and assignment of identity.

    Food, glorious food

    European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art Conference

    This year’s two-day international ESNA conference intends to study the various and complex relations between food, the experience of eating, and nineteenth-century art. Although food has always been a subject in the arts, the modes of production, distribution and consumption of nourishment changed radically during the course of the nineteenth century. Food decisively entered the public sphere and consciousness in cities where new sites of consumption in the form of mouth-watering food shops and restaurants emerged. At the same time food became a marker of national identity, of gender identity, of “taste”, of affluence, and of social and economic status.

    Autoportraits en costumes : jeux d’identifications multiples

    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).

    Colloque - Europe

    State-Rooms of Royal and Princely Palaces in Europe (14th-16th c.)

    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.

    Visual and filmic sociology: The (Un)Making of Europe - Capitalism, Solidarity and Subjectivity

    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.

    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.
