    1917-2017: Comparative Looks on the Soviet Artistic Avant-Gardes

    The Soviet artistic avant-gardes have been raising a specific interest for a long time. For instance, their multiple practices, their theoretical apparatus, their opuses as well as the influences they exerted have been largely surveyed by the academic world. Ever since the 1990’s a reappraisal of the multiple reuses and reinterpretations of those “avant-gardes” have been carried out. Our international symposium aims to question and put into context that reappraisal and the renewal it induces in the field of scholarly research. The year 2017 as an historical landmark, the centenary of the Russian revolutions, offers a conducive environment for such reflections and thoughts. While evocating various and contradictory narratives, this centenary leads to rethink the vast array of meanings embodied by the revolutionary events as well as to shed a new light on the opuses they produced or lived through.

    The peripheries of the European revolutionary process(es) 1917–1923

    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.

    History, Memory and Reshaping Identity in Post-Communist Literatures

    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.

    Benelux: Europe and the Cold War

    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.

    Trajectories of October 1917: Origins, reverberations and models of revolution

    Around the overarching theme of October 1917, we are seeking to foster dialogue between historians of 1917 who can make new contributions to the interpretation and analysis of that revolutionary movement in the Russian Empire, and scholars working on other areas and on later periods who also deal with 1917 in their analysis and interpretation of revolutionary movements. To bring all of this research together, we are holding a conference, from 19 to 21 October 2017, in which scholars from various disciplines and specialists of different areas are invited to participate.

    Post-soviet dis-integration and dis-connections (1991-2016)

    25 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, this conference aims at investigating its transversal consequences from two original standpoints: patterns of integration/disintegration combined to logics of connection / disconnection. These issues have various expressions in societal, normative, linguistic, regional or international fields. The conference will hence tackle a general question: how do political choices, economic contingencies or social phenomena foster or disrupt all kinds of links throughout the post-soviet area?

    International Reordering and Societal Change (1975-1990)

    Ever since its signing 40 years ago, the Helsinki Final Act has been at the heart of political and historical controversies. While at the time some saw it as an instrument designed to preserve the European status quo, today it is widely perceived as a major contribution to the end of the Cold War and the disappearance of the Soviet bloc. Twenty five years after the end of the Cold War, this conference will seek to evaluate the reality of this interaction between diplomacies and societies during and after the Helsinki conference.

    The scapegoat in Russian culture and history (18th-20th centuries)

    In Memoriam: René Girard (1923-2015)

    La notion de bouc émissaire est dynamique. De manière synchronique, le pouvoir russe a pu instrumentaliser l’opinion publique dans sa quête de boucs émissaires, comme avec les Cent-Noirs, organisation antisémite soutenue secrètement par Nicolas II. À l’inverse, l’opinion a pu influencer la position du pouvoir, comme pour les « oligarques » dans les années 1990, accusés d’avoir pillé les ressources russes, qui aident d’abord Eltsine avant que celui-ci ne prenne ses distances, en partie sous la pression de l’opinion. De manière diachronique, les boucs émissaires participent à la formation d’une mémoire collective et d’une histoire nationale russes, non sans la caution, parfois, d’historiens occidentaux.
