Ce séminaire se propose d’interroger la contemporanéité des problématiques soulevées par les avant-gardes, et ce dans tout l’espace post-communiste et dans tous les domaines artistiques.
International conference to be held in Florence, Italy, in October 2017 on the impact of the Russian Revolution on non-conventional, non-Social Democratic groups (anarchists, nationalists, feminists, republicans, etc.) that were also shaken by the events of 1917 and often played an important role in the birth of the international communist movement, but which have tended to fall out of the purview of the historiography, which has traditionally focused on the splits in the big socialist parties and on the German, Austrian, and Hungarian revolutions.
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.

Peut-on écrire une histoire française du patrimoine soviétique ?
Ce colloque se propose, à l’occasion du centenaire de la révolution d’Octobre 1917, de penser cet événement au regard des productions monumentales dont il a été à l’origine, et de mener une réflexion sur les enjeux multiples que soulèvent les traces encore présentes de l’Union soviétique dans tout son espace d’expansion et jusqu’en Île-de-France.
The Power of non-powers and perspectives on the economic, social and political aspects of European Security Strategy in the early Cold War
What are the historical roots of views of European defense and Europe's role in Western defence? How did the early European Integration movement perceive American involvement in the development of a common security strategy? This conference will investigate these and other related questions by re-examining the early cold war US/European relationship and the role that early Cold War period developments played in the European Integration Movement. In so doing, this conference will also showcase findings which can contribute to the unification of Cold War and European Integration historiographies.
