    Abraham Ibn Ezra, un savant à la croisée des cultures arabe, hébraïque et latine du XIIe siècle

    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.

    Life between construction and destruction: Forms, rules and norms

    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 .

    Significant Figures in the Formation of Transcultural Psychiatry

    This workshop endeavours to comparatively evaluate the ideas and practices of some of the major contributors to the formation of the international discipline of transcultural psychiatry in the mid-twentieth century, a time that saw the transition from the colonial to post-colonial periods in many parts of the world, which had a direct effect on how mental illnesses were conceived of by psychiatrists sensitive to cultural differences.

    History of Science, History of Text (2011-2016)

    In 2015-2016, the seminar "History of Science, History of Text" will keep exploring textual problems related to the ERC Project SAW (“Mathematical Sciences in the Ancient World”) As in previous years, the seminar will address the following issues regarding scientific sources: how textual sources bear witness to the social groups that produced them; how textual sources testify to knowledge; history of compilations; how actors structure their texts and knowledge into parts; how textual sources reflect the material environment in which they were produced In line with the beginning of phase 3 of the project SAW, devoted to facets of the history of the historiography of ancient mathematics, the seminar will pay special attention to the sources attesting to work in the history of mathematics.

    Shaping the Brain

    In the Late Middle Ages and Early Modern Period

    The brain has, throughout history, been considered an important achievement in the creation of man, although often secondary to the soul and the heart. Our knowledge about how the brain has been conceived in the past is, however, very fractional, especially for the late Medieval and early modern periods. This conference looks to re-situate the question of knowing the brain anew in a dialogue between medicine (anatomy, physiology and pathology) and natural philosophy (inter alia physics, biology and psychology).

    Electricity and Imagination

    Seminar Machines and Imagination, 2012-2013

    Throughout the nineteenth century the astonishing technical success of electricity had a great impact on the contemporary imagination. The Volta’s battery which impressed Napoleon, the telegraph system that linked Europe and United States and later the electric light and the x-rays fascinated not only physicists but also artists, men of letters and eclectic intellectuals. The lightning  that gives life to the doctor Frankenstein’s creature in the Mary Shelley novel is the most known case. But also the photographs representing Duchenne de Boulogne’s studies of human facial expressions produced via electrical stimulation and the ‘futuristic’ arc lamp painted by Giacomo Balla are emblematic examples of reactions and interactions between technical development and artistic creativity. The aim of the seminar is to explore how, in a period that was later defined the age of electricity, both science and arts contribute to the representation of electrical technologies.

    La médecine de cour : personnel de santé et politiques sanitaires en Europe, XVe-XVIIIe siècle

    Court medical practitioners changed in numbers, occupations and functions during the Renaissance and early modern period (15c-18c) practitioners focused on different specialities within body-care, and took on different roles in the government of Europe’s states. Building on recent work that has concentrated on the history of body care at courts, this workshop will explores changes in court medical politics, practices and practitioners and the consequences they had for, firstly, medical thought, regulation and practice and, secondly, the activities, management and evolution of early modern states.

    Pour une histoire comparative de la régulation des risques industriels, XVIIIe-XIXe siècles

    If comparison between national or regional contexts has been a driving force for the historiography of the « industrial revolution », and if environmental history has been immediately written on a global scale, the evolution of environmental and risk regulation is often studied according to the national, regional or local scales of the institutions producing the regulations. The aim of this workshop is to invite historians to consider how comparison could advance our understanding of the different ways of regulating risk and environment.

    Puericulture, Biotypology and "Latin" Eugenics in Comparative Context

    This One-day Workshop is organised by the History of Race and Eugenics (HRE) Research Group Oxford Brookes University. The study of eugenics and race is currently undergoing a remarkable transformation - one defined by society's need to engage with scientific advances and the ethical dilemmas they raise on the one hand, and the investigation of hitherto neglected case studies on the other. The inclusion and juxtaposition of national and international histories of race and eugenics lies at the heart of this international collaboration that strives to not only yield original and timely research on these neglected national case studies, but to redefine and diversify the overarching debates on these particularly turbulent periods of modern history.

    Low-Tech / High-Tech

    We intend in this workshop to reconsider how new technologies flow and circulate around the globe. One cannot ignore the obvious fact that we are seeing the emergence of new technological and industrial centres which accompany the rapid redistribution of economic power around the world; but one should also take into account the fact that technology is – and has always been – flowing and circulating in much more unexpected ways than predicted by the old-fashioned diffusionist models which are still prevalent, even in these times of globalisation. By privileging in this workshop (and in our collective project) a comparative approach between three very different geographical regions – South Asia, the Middle East and Europe – we hope to be able to propose an approach to technological flow, which will be sufficiently global and comparative, for going beyond the specificities of any particular culture or society, and which may really better help us understand the dynamics of technological circulations and the processes by which technologies are reinvented in different locations.

    Histoire et sociologie de la santé publique vétérinaire

    Le 1er décembre 2009, l'unité RiTME de l'INRA organise une journée d'étude consacrée à l'histoire et à la sociologie de la santé publique vétérinaire. Cette journée d'études sera l'occasion d'interroger ce qui constitue la « santé publique vétérinaire » en articulant trois types d’approches : celles qui s’attachent aux sciences vétérinaires, à la fois comme savoir scientifique fondé sur des concepts et des principes universels, et sur un ensemble spécifique de pratiques et de faire ; celles qui s’intéressent aux acteurs porteurs de ce savoir, à leur art (tour de main, pratiques, techniques) et à leur organisation en profession reconnue ; celles enfin, qui s’interrogent sur les instruments, les dispositifs et les programmes publics qui gouvernement les domaines d’intervention vétérinaires.

    Les frontières du vivant ; biologie, agriculture et médecine depuis 1945

    L'embryon et la circulation des savoirs, des normes et des outils à la frontière humain - animal

    Recent developments in biology have resulted in the emergence of practices (xenografts, cloning …) and entities (stem-cells, “humanized” animal models, human-animal chimeras, …) that challenge and question the human – animal boundary. This workshop aims at analyzing how the human – animal boundary is performed and (re)defined by suchpractices, but also by the sets of rules (from laws to “best” or local practices) that govern their use.

    Histoires de l'économie / Economic History and History of Economics Workshop

    H2S Workshop Series

    Cet atelier vise à offrir un espace de dialogue entre historiens des « faits » et de la « pensée » économiques – pour reprendre des catégories bien ancrées mais trop exclusives – et entre historiens et économistes (et sociologues, politistes...) intéressés par ces questions. L'édition 2009 propose deux thèmes propres à permettre ces discussions : l'histoire des faillites et celle des statistiques économiques.
