    Colloque - Histoire

    Religions et politique dans les Orients d'Europe (XIVe-XXe siècle)

    The goal of this conference is to explore a number of aspects of the relationship between the religious phenomenon and politics through the historical framework of political developments in what progressively will become, through interaction, the Orients of Europe, i.e. Eastern and Southeastern Europe as well as the Eastern Mediterranean, an area so unorthodox and difficult to examine in terms of essentialist definitions. It is no accident that Samuel Huntington believed that what we call the ‘Orthodox East’ does not form a part of the West, but rather a sui generis encounter between Christianity and Islam at the borders of Europe. This theoretical scheme is not overturned by drawing the borders of Europe a little further to the East, as many believe, but by historicizing the issue of the relationship between religion and politics in the given geographical region through the comparative prism of what was occurring during the same period in Western Europe.

    Séminaire - Histoire

    Ottoman Urban Studies Seminar (2009-2010)

    Post-Ottoman Cities

    What is the historical experience of cities in the former territories of the Ottoman Empire - in the Balkans, Anatolia, the Middle East, and North Africa - in dealing with the impact of global changes and the transformation from Empire to nation States? How did people of different cultural, social and religious backgrounds live together? How are such examples of conviviality, conflict, migration, and urban regimes of governance and stratification conceptualized? And how have urban traditions been reinterpreted, and what bearing does this have on modern conceptions of civil society, multicultural societies, migration, or cosmopolitanism. These and other questions will be addressed in this year’s Seminar in Ottoman Urban Studies. Séminaire organisé par Ulrike Freitag et Nora Lafi.

    Colloque - Époque contemporaine

    Société et politique dans le Sud-Est européen au XIXe siècle

    There has always been a negative image attached to South-Eastern European politics and polities and rarely has it been widely acknowledged (Mazower) that the process of state formation in the region was not just a pale and gruesome caricature of Western European models but rather a complicated affair involving juggling with various institutional models (local as well as imported ones), coping with societies of a sometimes inextricable ethnoreligious diversity and varying degrees of political allegiance to central power, dealing with foreign interference and tampering. 19th century visitors of the region contributed a lot to this negative image which still clings to the region (Todorova) and culturalists still like to refer back to the 19th c. as the genealogical matrix of all the region’s evils.

    Appel à contribution - Histoire

    Communautés migrantes et espace urbain dans les ports de la Méditerranée, XVIIe-XIXe siècle

    Dixième conférence internationale d'histoire urbaine, Gand, 1er-4 septembre 2010

    Recent research on migrant communities has witnessed a clear shift towards a more sophisticated understanding of the variety of bonds that link minority groups to the society they live in, as well as to their places of origins. Yet, when it comes to the understanding of past migrations, historical discourse still depends in many ways on traditional categories of analysis, that often poorly reflect the profound originality of the situations under study. This session is an attempt to challenge traditional and “ready-to-go” views on the organization of community life among migrants who lived in the Mediterranean port-cities during the late modern period (17th to 19th centuries).

    Les murs en relations internationales - Fences and Walls in International Relations

    Depuis la Grande muraille de Chine, le mur d’Antonin ou celui d’Hadrien réalisé par les Romains, le Genkobori construit par les Japonais sur l’île de Kyushu, ou encore le Mur de Berlin durant la période contemporaine, le « mur » est une des clés constantes – en Orient comme en Occident - de la protection d’une entité constituée et souveraine. Plus récemment, avec la construction des murs en Palestine, à Chypre, autour de Ceuta et Melilla, au Sahara occidental, à la frontière mexicano-américaine, au Cachemire, à la frontière du Botswana, ces fortifications demeurent un symbole de sécurité dans les relations internationales. Pour séparer ou pour protéger, la version contemporaine du mur pourrait correspondre à la (re)polarisation du monde à la suite des attentats du 11 septembre et constitue le révélateur d’une nouvelle ère des relations internationales, fondée sur la « perception » de l’ennemi.

    Daily Life in Ottoman Towns

    What is the historical experience of cities in the former territories of the Ottoman Empire - in the Balkans, Anatolia, the Middle East, and North Africa - in dealing with the impact of global changes and the transformation from Empire to nation States? How did people of different cultural, social and religious backgrounds live together? How are such examples of conviviality, conflict, migration, and urban regimes of governance and stratification conceptualized? And how have urban traditions been reinterpreted, and what bearing does this have on modern conceptions of civil society, multicultural societies, migration, or cosmopolitanism. These and other questions will be addressed in this year’s Seminar in Ottoman Urban Studies, with a specific focus on daily life issues. This seminar is supported by the research program ‘Europe in the Middle East – The Middle East in Europe’ EUME with funds of the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung.
