The Greek word for a fault or error is hamartia; this same word, when it appears in Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament, is commonly rendered as “sin.” If there were no word like sin or péché or Sünde or peccato in modern languages, with the religious connotation these terms have acquired, could we identify a special sense of hamartia (or the Latin peccatum) in the Bible on the basis of context alone? This colloquium will address the question of when and how error and wrongdoing acquired the specific sense of sin commonly associated with the Judaeo-Christian tradition – if indeed there was a change. Under examination will be attitudes toward wrongdoing in ancient cults, ideas of pollution, conceptions of God or gods, and more.

International Study Group on New Forms of Public Agency - PubliCdemoS
Public space is the place for assembly, the hub of democracy as well as the manifestation of power and (dis)empowerment of persons. PubliCdemoS Project explores the ways in which new forms of public agency extend politics to everyday life experiences by avenues of artistic expressions and aesthetic forms. The core aim of this project is to understand new politics of performative citizenship and public (un)making in multicultural settings.
Studying labour inside logistical worlds
During the last 30 years, the logistics sector has become a key function of the global economy. Nevertheless, social sciences have only recently taken into account the importance of this transformation, trying to depict its impact on the economic systems as well as on working conditions. This conference aims at fostering a dialogue between different researches that, on an international scale, address logistics as an object, a perspective, or even as an analytical concept.
Mutations, Conversions and Representations
The chosen perspective for this one-day conference is an inter- and pluri-disciplinary one and it is therefore articulated around a variety of approaches such as cultural geography, cultural history, art history, media studies, urban studies, heritage studies, architecture, etc.
The kick-off for Norwegian University of Science and Technology's initiative in DARIAH-EU is scheduled for Wednesday 18th January 2017, 0830-1200 in Trondheim, Norway. If you have an interest in Digital Humanities, please save the date.
Les profils élaborés et les différentes traces laissées sur Internet dessinent les contours des identités numériques. Du vivant de l’internaute, la gestion de ses identités lui revient, et elle bénéficie de l’encadrement juridique relatif aux données personnelles. Généralement, les droits de la personne s’éteignent avec la mort de celle-ci. Cette journée d'étude internationale, organisée dans le cadre du projet de recherche ENEID, rassemble des chercheurs et chercheuses des sciences de l'information et de la communication, des juristes, ainsi que des experts travaillant en tant que Correspondants informatique et libertés ou dans des autorités nationales de protection des données, pour réfléchir ensemble au sort de ces données personnelles après la mort.
Transnational itineraries, dialogues and programmes
This one-day conference investigates the role of student movements in individual and collective emancipations, from the struggle for colonial liberation to the challenges posed by contemporary globalisation. This conference seeks to bring these various approaches together, in order to discuss the transnational and connected history of student engagements in colonial liberations and the critical reflection on the multilateral management of conflicts in the postcolonial period. It will investigate internal and external tensions, and the reorganisation of these movements in relation to pacifism, revolutionary struggle, conflict prevention and peace making.
The aim of this workshop is to contribute to the discussion about the complex and multi-faceted interactions engendered in the translation of knowledge between cultures across space and time, as well as the aspects inevitably involved in the process of both its transmission and reception. The contributions address the translation of concepts, also examining the lexical changes initiated by the influx of new or foreign knowledge, and that of practices, i.e. concrete examples to be found in the process of translating knowledge, which in turn entails its interpretation and adaptation.
University Shanghai Fudan-Paris IAS workshop
Over the last decades, China has become a major player in the world trade and the European Union's second largest trade partner after the United States. Economic relations between the European Union and China now take up a variety of forms, including technological collaboration in new high tech ventures.
This worshop seeks to investigate cosmopolitanism through an urban lens. It aims to provide a situated approach to cosmopolitanism, using the analytical framework of urban and social theory alongside social geography and building upon empirical research. Our purpose is to frame a grounded theory of urban cosmopolitanism that would take the paradigms and empirical findings of various social sciences into account. Our interest lies in a cosmopolitanism of encounters incarnated in contacts, mobilities and cultural consumption and the spatial dimension of the social and power relations that are at stake in cosmopolitan encounters. We shall focus on cities as sites, but also actors in processes of cosmopolitanisation.
Architectural Criticism 20th and 21st Centuries, a Cartography
This second international workshop takes into consideration the actors and the vehicles of criticism: with these terms it refers to both the agents of criticism (critics, architects, historians, publishers, photographers, institutions, etc.) and the media through which criticism is disseminated (press, photography, exhibitions, etc.). The workshop aims to expand the knowledge about the specific functions of these actors and their networks and to outline their mutual relationships. The four sessions investigate the links between the actors, the media of criticism, and the historical contexts within which they materialize, as well as the cultural, intellectual, and institutional milieus from which they originate.
The aim of this meeting is to work about sacrament and oath in the Middle Age. This event will allow to researchers of different relevances (litterature, philosophy, history, philology) to cross their studies.
First edition – Utopia and the project for the city and territory
For today and in the future Bernardo Secchi’s work and intuitions nourish the reflections and debate on city, architecture and society. The Study Day sponsored by the Doctorate School in Architecture, City and Design and of the Università IUAV of Venice is dedicated to Bernardo Secchi, in the school where he taught for many years becoming a reference for many student generations. The aim is not only to remember his work, but also to deepen and to elaborate, case by case, his hypothesis, themes and questions by constructing new occasions for debate and intellectual expansion.
In the current debates concerning refugees, we observe, in some European countries, at least three ways in which history tends to “disappear”: the past is either absent because it is unknown (it thus looks as if we have never dealt with refugees before...); actual developments are put in a quasi-historical perspective, by claiming that certain countries have always known certain types of policies, resulting in a rather static and a-historical picture as well; migrants are urged to leave their histories home. This seminar will look into ways to do “justice” to history, both in the political debate and in scholarly work.
In the middle of the eighth century, with the completion of the Islamic conquest of the eastern, northern and part of the western shores of the Mediterranean, Jews managed to successfully integrate into the ruling society without losing their religious and national identity. They willingly adopted the Arabic language, spoke Arabic fluently, wrote Arabic in Hebrew letters (Judeo-Arabic), and employed Arabic in the composition of their literary works. The twelfth century witnessed a cultural phenomenon that saw Jewish scholars gradually abandon the Arabic language and adopt Hebrew, previously used almost exclusively for religious and liturgical purposes, for the first time as a vehicle for the expression of secular and scientific ideas.

Aside from the biological processes to which it is subjected from birth to death, human existence is characterized by the permanent effort all individuals and groups make to influence and control these processes, in order to live together. Whether occurring during a rite of passage or whether part of the interactions of everyday life, this construction invites us to question the various manners forms are made – be them “Life Forms” or “Forms of Life” – by carefully looking at the diversity of processes through which norms and rules become established .
Practices, Politics, and Policy in Premodern Societies (6th-17th Centuries)
Money is at once elusive and concrete. As a mode of economic exchange it exists within a relatively fixed playing field, with clearly delineated boundaries of benefits and costs. However, poor handling, bad advice, or even a bad turn at a game of chance can swallow money up in one fell swoop. The workshop will investigate this wide array of pre-capitalist, western and non-western contexts from the English Isles, Flanders, France, Germany, Italy, and China between the Middle Ages and Early Modern times.
