Three exciting researcher positions to be available in the Knowledge Complexity project
DARIAH partners Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) and Trinity College Dublin (TCD), as well as the Free University of Berlin (FUB) are pleased to announce their recruitment of three linked 12-month researcher positions.
The European Network for the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (ENPOSS) invites contributions to its 6th Conference to be held in Krakow in September of 2017 and organized by the Department of Philosophy of the Cracow University of Economics and the Copernicus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies. Contributions from all areas within the philosophy of the social sciences are encouraged. Moreover, contributions from both philosophers and social scientists are welcome.
Ce colloque se propose de tenter une théorisation de la notion de spirituel afin d'en faire une catégorie scientifique utilisable dans le champ des sciences humaines. Depuis le poststructuralisme, la théorie, notamment littéraire, est devenue experte en matière d'analyse et de remise en question du soubassement idéologique de tout discours. Toutefois, cette « herméneutique du soupçon » (Ricoeur, 1975) se trouve démunie lorsqu'il s'agit d'élaborer une herméneutique « instauratrice de sens » (Ricoeur, 1965) permettant de penser l'humain au-delà de sa matérialité.
Autour d’Octobre 1917, nous proposons de faire dialoguer les historiens de 1917, à même d’apporter des éléments nouveaux d’interprétation et d’analyse de ce mouvement révolutionnaire dans l’Empire russe, avec des chercheurs travaillant sur d’autres aires et des périodes ultérieures, confrontés eux aussi à la question de 1917 dans l’analyse et l’interprétation de mouvements révolutionnaires. Pour mener à bien cette entreprise de croisement des recherches, nous organisons un colloque du 19 au 21 octobre 2017, auquel seront invités des chercheurs de différentes disciplines et spécialistes de divers espaces.
The European Network for the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (ENPOSS) invites contributions to its 5th Conference to be held in Helsinki in August of 2016. Contributions from all areas within the Philosophy of the Social Sciences are encouraged. Moreover, contributions from both philosophers and social scientists are welcome.
In philosophy and history of science, the readings investigating the complexity of the abandonment of “scientific objects” are rather rare in comparison with those focusing on the “inventions”, the ‘constructions’ or the “genealogies”. During our meeting, we will specifically draw attention to the process of the “disappearance” of “scientific objects” (in both natural and social sciences).
Mapping.Crit.Arch: Architectural criticism XXth and XXst centuries, a cartography
This first workshop will focus on the relationship of architectural criticism with "public opinion" and on the opposite side, its relations to architecture as an "autonomous" discipline. The various nature and degree of such an autonomy will be examined in different historical, institutional and cultural contexts: to what extent is architectural criticism autonomous from social uses of architecture, from the architectural design and its economic production?
The conference aims to advance our understanding of the relevance of pragmatism to contemporary debates in philosophy, the humanities, the social and the natural sciences as well as in communities of practice. Pragmatism is here broadly considered as a tradition of thought stemming from philosophy but now clearly present in a number of academic fields such as sociology, law, politics, art, physics, mathematics, anthropology, history, and literature.
The journal Études Phénoménologiques / Phenomenological Studies is seeking submissions in English and French for its 2016 issue on the topic “La phénoménologie et les défis de la Philosophy of Mind / Phenomenology and the Challenges of the Philosophy of Mind.”
The digital revolution is resulting in social, economic and political transformations. These changes are often conceptualized using the term "digital ecosystem" – understood/conceived as infosphere enriched by social and economic values. We propose the notion of "digital ecosystem" as the starting point of analysis for new interdisciplinary approaches, both theoretical and applied. Are the contemporary environments of work, economy, science, culture, politics and information becoming digital ecosystems?
20 years of SPIRAL Research Centre
New developments, such as, for example, new genetic testing, digitized work environments, biobanks, 3D printed tissues or high-level radioactive waste, create promises and expectations, but also entail great uncertainty with regard to societal and political impacts. In this respect, we observe the development of imaginative and interdisciplinary dialogues pursuing multiple dimensions of possible outcomes and normatively evaluating such outcomes. In order to question and elaborate on the "trading zones" where such dialogues take place, we encourage submissions to present papers and/or posters on one of the three following subthemes: genomics and public health, safety and nuclear energy, and governance of the knowledge societies.
Florence | Fiesole
The International Federation for Public History (IFPH-FIHP), together with the American NCPH and other associations and cultural institutions, are participating to an important workshop on Public History organised by the History and Civilisation Department,European University Institute together with the EUI Max Weber Academic Careers Observatory Programand the Historical Archives of the European Union, in Florence-Fiesole, Italy, 11th, 12th and 13th February 2015.
Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies
The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies – a collaboration between the Bauhaus- Universität Weimar (Internationales Kolleg fürKulturtechnikforschung und Medienphilosophie, IKKM) and Princeton University (German Department) – returns to Weimar in 2015 for its fifth installment. The topic will be “Archive Futures: Operations, Time Objects, Collectives”.
Between art history and visual culture
This issue of Art History Supplement seeks contributions discussing the work and the life of the artist through the perspective of art histories and visual studies. Taking Dominikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco) as a case study, or a paradigm, for the manifold uses and values of images of his life and work.
The conference brings together scholars from various regions and disciplines (including Arabic, Turkish, Hebrew, Sanskrit, as well as European languages) to explore the personal (and especially self-reflective) dimensions of academic knowledge production by studying scholars (i.e., producers) and their contexts (i.e., institutions and societies) in relation to their objects of study. The conference outlines an avenue of research dedicated to the study of tensions, antagonisms and polemics - as well as fascination, cooperation, appropriation and friendship - that transpired as a consequence of the meetings of different scholars and their dissimilar modes of textual scholarship, made possible through international cooperation in the form of conferences, journals, academic associations and student exchange.
Bilan et perspectives
In 1980, François Furet established the first visiting chair in North American studies at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in partnership with the French-American Foundation. Yet, it was not until 1984 and the election of Jean Heffer as permanent full professor that the Center for North American Studies (CENA) came into being. Despite pioneering efforts in some English departments and the creation of the first university chair in North American history at the Sorbonne in 1967, there was significant disparity between the importance of the USA in the contemporary world and the weakness of North American studies in France. Over the last thirty years and under the supervision of Jean Heffer and François Weil, the CENA has become one of the leading institutions for North American scholarship in France and Europe.
Art History Supplement, September 2014
This issue of Art History Supplement seeks to address issues regarding the work of French philosopher and art historian Louis Marin (1931 – 1992) and the material shift in art history. What do we actually mean by the study of material culture in history of art? One may support that the artefacts that are not considered art are part of the material culture. However, do we subsequently, if not intentionally, tend to separate the notions of art and material? Whilst, despite art being “mirror” or representation, it is primarily of a material nature.
CFP INSEP2013 - Special Session
This session is part of the INSEP2013 Conference – The Value(s) of Sexual Diversity. The conference focuses on the legal, political and ethical boundaries of diverse sexualities, “troubling” current assumptions, dispositions and claims for the boundaries between legitimacy and illegitimacy in diverse sexual identities, sub‐cultures and practices in both national and international contexts. We welcome paper proposals reflecting on the ethical and methodological criticalities associated with doing empirical research on sexual diversities and (in) sexual (sub)cultures.
The Square : a Central Object for Thought
The square of opposition is a very famous theme coming from Aristotelian logic dealing with the notions of opposition, negation, quantification and proposition. It has been continuously studied by people interested in logic, philosophy and Aristotle during two thousand years. Even Frege, one of the main founders of modern mathematical logic, used it. This congress is an interdisciplinary event gathering logicians, philosophers, mathematicians, semioticians, artists, cognitivists, and computer scientists.
Because Globalization has become a conceptual problem and the source of epistemological discussions in almost all social sciences and humanities, this international workshop aims at questioning the changes (in scales, temporality) of historical research (or research on history) from different disciplinary viewpoints: sociology, history, anthropology and so on. The final purpose of this workshop is to offer a polylogical arena for researchers and Ph-D candidates on topical theme - globalization.
