    Stages of Utopia and Dissent

    50 years on…

    15th May 1968: the Odeon theatre in Paris is occupied by students and becomes the insurgent headquarters where every night militants recount the days' action in occupied factories to an audience of people camping in the auditorium. Youth rebellion was never as mythologised as that of the French students’ fight against institutional oppression. The effects were felt across the Channel, too – but the nature of those effects was, and remains, disputed. 50 years on… where are we? What remains of autogestion and emancipatory education? What remains of theatre inventiveness and sedition? What remains of a need for participatory audiences? What remains of utopia and dissent?

    La guerre comme espace de contact au XIXe siècle

    Cette journée d'étude se propose de réunir des chercheurs autour de la thématique des guerres comme lieux de rencontre et d'échanges pendant un « long dix-neuvième siècle » (1789-1914). Située dans le champ de l'histoire culturelle de la guerre, elle vise à interroger les catégories d'analyse traditionnellement utilisées par les historiens - notamment celle de la totalisation - pour en questionner la pertinence dès lors que l'attention se concentre sur les conflits militaires du XIXe siècle, principalement en Europe.

    Biocosmos - Our sense of place, our sense of life in the universe

    Planet scientists and exoplanet astronomers are re-shaping our understanding of the universe, presenting a fascinating cosmos filled with places and destinations, not an empty void. At the same time, Earth physicists and biologists design models of self-sustainable ecosystems such as Biosphere 2 and the Mars/Lunar Greenhouse, with the goal of engineering bio-regenerative mini-worlds that can function on their own. As these scientific revolutions unfold, with distant spaces and global life systems as objects of “field work”, what counts as the “human environment”? How do we, as individuals and societies, relate to spaces, things, and processes we do not or cannot experience directly and which we see as “extreme” or “beyond” human?

    Inequality and uncertainty: current challenges for cities

    III Mid-Term Conference Of The Urban Sociology Research Network 37 Of European Sociological Association In Madrid (Spain), Uned

    It is not possible to ignore the fact that cities are not only moving, vibrant and flourishing spaces, promising hope for better quality of life, but also accumulate and reflect significant problems. We need to recognise the complexity of economic, political, social, cultural and environmental mechanisms, which strengthen existing inequalities and add a great deal of uncertainty to life in cities and urban spaces of the globalised world. We want to gain a better understanding of the impact and consequences of inequality and uncertainty on the urban arena as much as the responses to current challenges in terms of  both informal and institutional practices.

    Home as a place for anti-Jewish persecution in European cities, 1933-1945

    Anti-Jewish persecution didn’t only happen in specifically designed or transformed spaces such as camps and ghettos. It invaded spaces of everyday life in European cities: public spaces, work places and private spaces such as homes. In this landscape not only Jews and agents of persecution appear but also their immediate residential environment: concierges, neighbors, nannies, landlords, property managers, sub-tenants, local administrations, etc. These figures have an essential place in the memories of Jewish survivors. Though, so far, scholars have hardly addressed their role. The spatial turn that occurred during the last fifteen years in Anglophone Holocaust studies focused on the symbolic places of genocide. It mostly neglected apartment blocks and ordinary cities as spaces of persecution. This conference thus intends to focus on urban housing as a place for anti-Jewish persecution.

The aim of this conference is to question the film genre of the Western as being essentially American by focusing on the transnational dimension of Western narratives and images, as well as the circulation, reception, and production of Westerns outside the United States.

    Modernism, modernisation and the rural landscape

    MODSCAPES_conference2018

    The impact of the Modern Movement and modernisation processes on rural landscapes in Europe and beyond is a widespread but little known, recognised or understood phenomenon which still exerts effects today. Within the third joint research programme of HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) dedicated to “The uses of the past” which started in 2016, this subject is now being studied through several lenses within the MODSCAPES project. MODSCAPES welcomes proposals (full sessions, papers, trainnig/workshop) to its mid-event event, an international conference dedicated to Modernism, modernisation and the rural landscape.

    Women’s spring: feminism, nationalism and civil disobedience

    The aim of this conference is to explore the ways in which female activists and artists responded the resurgence of the far-right nationalism and the twin evil of religious fundamentalism. We want to take a closer look at grassroots emancipatory movements, women-led voluntary associations, as well as cultural texts by women – performances, installations, artworks, films and novels – in which authors take a stance against religious bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, racism and misogyny. But we also invite contributions that focus on women’s endorsement of and participation in ultra-conservative national and orthodox religious campaigns.

    Geomedia and the City

    Geomedia is an emerging concept that has been deployed to capture a particular technological condition, associated with recent rapid developments in digital technology. As such, it signals to the dialectics of locative media and the mediations of localities. However, the concept of geomedia carries deeper/wider ontological and epistemological registers that transcend the simple twining of geography and media. In this wider sense, geomedia gestures to the expanding interdisciplinary terrain at the crossroads of media studies and geography, where various ontologies and epistemologies of space/time, flows/mobilities and mediation/ mediatization come together. The aim of this special issue is to explore the urban as a key terrain where these ontologies and epistemologies are articulated.

    Counter-revolution and the making of conservatism(s)

    Transnationalism and the circulation of conservative ideas from the mid-17th century to the First World War

    With the rise to prominence of conservative ideologies across the Western World, studying the genesis of “anti-modern” European traditions has gained new urgency. The conference aims to sketch of a typology of modern conservative thinking based on the notions of dialogue and circulation between European intellectual centres and their peripheries, Enlightenment philosophy and conservative thinkers, and the various actors involved in the process. It will further discuss the long-term transformation of conservative ideas and rhetoric through the lense of transnational connections, against nation-centric studies of conservatism in which supra-national exchanges are often hidden by structural discourses.

    Marx, Semiotics and Political Praxis

    This special issue of Open Cultural Studies will return to the work of Karl Marx to reflect on and engage with his coherent articulation of words and their use, of words and actions, and of the intellectual and the political. The coherence of his discourse and praxis offers tools to think through, if not seek to transform, the alienated semiotic landscape of our times as described by the Frankfurt school philosopheers, Jean Baudrillard, Frederic Jameson, Sloterdijk and Slavoj Žižek. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Marx's birth, in this special issue we want to honour his 11th Thesis on Feuerbach: "philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point, however, is to change it."

    The Production of Imperial Space. Empire and Circulations (XVIIIth-XXth centuries)

    The colloquium “The production of imperial space. Empire and Circulations (18th-20th centuries)” aims at bringing together different fields of recent historical investigation into the construction of imperial space. It proposes to use the concept of “circulation” as an entry point to study the imbrication of spaces, of space-producing activities, and of actors, in an imperial context. A “spatial practice” par excellence, circulation produces spaces of its own, both at its most local and at its most global scale. The workshop proposes to study the way circulation – of people, commodities, practices, knowledge and symbols – produces a multiplicity of spaces, interlocked within and between Empires.
