    The medieval horse

    International medieval congress 2018

    Palfreys and rounceys, hackneys and packhorses, warhorses and coursers, not to mention the mysterious “dung mare” – they were all part of everyday life in the Middle Ages. Every cleric and monk, no matter how immersed in his devotional routine and books he would be, every nun, no matter how reclusive her life, every peasant, no matter how poor his household, would have some experience of horses. To the medieval people, horses were as habitual as cars in the modern times. Besides, there was the daily co-existence with horses to which many representatives of the gentry and nobility – both male and female – were exposed, which far exceeds the experience of most amateur riders today.

    Art, aesthetics, psychoanalysis

    Artefilosofia Journal

    The first question that comes to mind when addressing the relationship between art and psychoanalysis is the following: By what right and on what grounds, or yet what entitles psychoanalysis to take upon itself to issue judgment upon art and/or upon artists? This first question immediately unfolds into many. To what extent can a theory of the psychological unconscious extrapolate its primary field of application to head down to theaters, museums, concert rooms, canvases, sculptures, installations and so forth? Being an eminently clinical discipline, do we run the risk of transforming psychoanalysis into a worldview? Into a totalitarian system capable of deciphering the meaning of everything that presents itself upon the suspicious gaze and attentive ears of the psychoanalyst?

    European Space Agency's Space History Conference

    There is more to space than rocket science. Historians, diplomats, economists, law students, political scientists and sociologists have all contributed to our understanding of the space age and its impact on our societies over the past decades. Sixty years on from the placing of the first human-made object in orbit around Earth, space is now an integral part of our daily lives. Space science and technology are projects for the whole of humankind, reaching not only outside Earth’s atmosphere, but also beyond our Solar System. While the technological and scientific challenges of working, living and travelling in space motivate students to pursue such studies, the impact of space activities on our lives on Earth, on relations between nations and organisations, and our collective recent history, provides fertile ground for students and scholars in the humanities to take up space-related subjects.

    Social psychological perspectives on the gift, donation and giving

    Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology

Paying particular attention to the social, ideological and cultural meanings that develop around such practices, it aims to consider the ethical, legal and also practical implications surrounding them, as experienced by different social actors with varying, and often competing, interests.

    The Franciscans in Mexico

    Five Centuries of Cultural Influence

    Generations of scholars have studied the multi-faceted experiences of the Franciscans in Mexico and the ways in which the Franciscan order shaped New Spain and the early Mexican republic. This conference examines the range of Franciscan influence and analyzes new scholarship that focuses on the multiple discourses with which friars engaged native peoples, creole populations, the vice-regal authorities, and other actors throughout the Spanish empire.  The conference brings together junior and senior scholars to study the long Franciscan experience in Mexico on the eve of the commemoration of the quincentenary of the Spanish — and thus the Franciscan— presence in Mexico.

    Cameroon and its former tutors

    Researches in international relations show various results on the domination nature of relations between the tutelary power of a country and its socio-economic fate. Under the prism of these dominant-dominated relations, it seemed judicious and timely to analyze the nature of the multiform relationships between Cameroon and its former tutelary powers, as well as the dynamics recorded in bilateral relations in a context of globalization. The purpose of these analyzes is to understand better the processes that have structured these captive relationships and to explore its patterns of deconstruction of dependence.

    The Roll in Western Europe in the Late Middle Ages

    Rolls were used in all aspects of medieval society. Key areas in which rolls were utilized include administration, genealogies, poetry, liturgy and heraldry. Despite the significance of the roll as a form for medieval writing culture, it has not received as much attention in respect to its significance. The international conference The Roll in Western Europe in the Late Middle Ages focuses on the materiality and the praxeology of late medieval rolls (1200 – 1500), particularly in England and France. The presentations deal with questions regarding the purpose and function of the rolls, the advantages and disadvantages of the roll form and why it was preferred for certain texts over other forms, such as the codex.

    What is Border Studies?

    2nd World Conference of the Association for Borderlands Studies - Panel

    The societal events of the last decade have challenged Border Studies more than ever before. This can be seen not only in the field’s growing institutionalisation but also in its developments in research: these include the relativization of geopolitical perspectives by cultural studies approaches, the spatialisation of the border concept (e.g. zone, third space, exter/internalisation etc.), the decentralisation of the border in favour of processes (e.g. b/ordering, othering etc.), the pluralisation of the border concept (e.g. walls, differences, (dis)continuities, demarcations) or the complexification of the border (e.g. scapes, textures). The panel is treating these developments and other turns as an opportunity for a long-overdue self-examination, which in the light of the resurgence of borders seems necessary from both a societal and scientific perspective.

    Border Textures: Interwoven Practices and Discursive Fabrics of Borders

    2nd World Conference of the Association for Borderlands Studies - Panel

    In view of the current political developments in Europe, the scientific study of borders has increasingly gained importance. Cultural Studies has reacted to these developments by generating complex and more and more detailed theories and tools for describing and analyzing border phenomena. Cultural border studies champion approaches which do not examine spatial, material, temporal or cultural aspects in isolation but investigate their intersectional and performative interactions. This panel provides a space for explorative investigation of potential approaches for cultural border studies, focusing on interactions between material and immaterial manifestations of the border.

    Peacemaking and the Restraint of Violence in Medieval Europe (1100-1300)

    Practices, Actors and Behaviour

    In high medieval Europe, conflict took a number of different forms, from large-scale battles, such as disputes over crowns, power and lands, to more local disputes over inheritance and property. In the absence of well-developed administrative structures which could limit conflict, cultural conventions, rituals and behavioural norms evolved to moderate violence within the elite community.

    Sustainable cities

    First international network of Michelin cities

    The development of green, ecological city or Eco-city has been introduced as a mean to support sustainable urban development within a social, economic, environmental and demographic con-text (Tsolakis, Anthopoulos, 2015). The Eco-city concept was introduced by Urban Ecology, a non profit organization that was founded in 1975 by Richard Register (Roseland, 1997). An Eco-city ensures the well-being of its citizens via a holistic urban planning and management approach with the aim of eliminating waste and emissions (Register, 1987). From a systemic point of view, an eco-city can be described like a set of different complex sub-system that need to be associated or reconnected in order to deli-ver the desired outcomes (Diemer, Morales, 2016).

    Government by Expertise: Technocrats and Technocracy in Western Europe, 1914-1973

    Technocracy is the political swearword of our times. From the multiple crises of the European Union to the recent elections in the United States, the role of experts in public governance is often invoked as one of the main sources for the political ills of contemporary society, responsible for the exacerbation of social inequalities, the decline in the acceptance of political institutions, and the rise of populist movements. This conference will look at the genealogy of technocracy and the trajectories of various groups of “experts” in western Europe’s mid-20th century.

    Objects of Exchange. Art and Economic Encounters

    Exchange is classically described by economists as a phenomenon of equalization of values within a given system. When heterogeneous orders of economic rationalities meet, material objects and practices come to embody the paradoxes of dissonant exchange. This symposium aims to explore how artifacts and artistic practices have materialized ruptures within, and encounters between, economic systems in the modern and contemporary period.

    Le patrimoine culturel immatériel dans la nature

    Espaces, ressources et pratiques - Atelier international de recherche en droit comparé

    Le patrimoine culturel immatériel est créé par les communautés notamment en réponse à leur environnement et à leur interaction avec la nature. Les pratiques agricoles, pastorales, de pêche, de chasse et de cueillette sont en effet associées à des ressources et des espaces naturels. Sauvegarder ces éléments du patrimoine culturel immatériel implique, non seulement la reconnaissance du droit d’une communauté à accéder à ces écosystèmes, mais aussi celui d’utiliser leurs ressources. Les États peuvent octroyer aux communautés des droits de chasses, de pêche ou de cueillette pour préserver leur mode de vie traditionnel et le patrimoine culturel immatériel qui lui est lié. Ces droits doivent néanmoins être exercés d’une façon écologiquement viable pour modérer l’impact que ces pratiques peuvent avoir sur l’environnement. À l’opposé, certaines connaissances et pratiques concernant la nature et l’univers peuvent être considérées comme des systèmes de gestion des ressources ou comme des savoirs traditionnels écologiques. Dans ce cas, la sauvegarde du patrimoine culturel immatériel contribue directement à la préservation de l’environnement et à la conservation de la biodiversité.
