    Writing the city [into the urban]

    In the aftermath of the May 1968 uprising in Paris, Henri Lefebvre published in 1970 his classic treatise La Révolution Urbaine where he pointedly placed the urban in the centre of this revolution, identifying a theoretical need for the concept of the urban as a planetary possibility, one he considered more appropriate than a redundant notion of the city as a social scientific object. This workshop is a step in this direction where, coming 50 years after the backlash of ’68, this event aims to establish a conversation between the city and the urban by drawing on the notion of "ethnographic theorisation" where the theoretical potential of the urban can be harnessed from ethnographic insights of the city. It explores contingent ways in which the city can be written into the urban through manoeuvres that engage with the process of writing the city across disciplines from literary cultures to urban studies

    Communautés cléricales et communautés monastiques dans le monde carolingien (VIIIe-Xe siècle)

    Ce colloque entend appréhender les évolutions des communautés cléricales et monastiques d’époque carolingienne afin d’interroger les effets concrets de la réforme de 816-819 et la notion même d’institutionnalisation de l’Église, dont on fait souvent un des traits caractéristiques de la période. Il s’agira d’observer de quelle manière étaient organisées ces institutions, entre le VIIIe et la fin du Xe siècle, sans préjuger d’une rupture en un temps donné, afin de mieux mesurer ce qui caractérisait les différents types de communautés (monastiques et canoniques / canoniales) et à quel point l'effort réformateur mené à l’initiative de la cour constitue ou non une inflexion majeure dans l’histoire de l’organisation de l’Église et des communautés ecclésiastiques.

    Stages of Utopia and Dissent, 50 years on...

    15 May 1968: the Odeon theatre in Paris is occupied by students and becomes the insurgent headquarters where every night militants recount the days' action in occupied factories to an audience of people camping in the auditorium. Youth rebellion was never as mythologised as that of the French students’ fight against institutional oppression. The effects were felt across the Channel, too – but the nature of those effects was, and remains, disputed. 50 years on… where are we? What remains of autogestion and emancipatory education? What remains of theatre inventiveness and sedition? What remains of a need for participatory audiences? What remains of utopia and dissent?

    Pervasive powers

    Corporate authority in the shaping of public policy

    The power of corporate business has been a subject of intense debate and many social science studies since the 19th century. This conference is based on the idea that, not only has this power varied among industries, countries and different periods, but also that the way in which it is wielded has evolved over time. By bringing together scholars from various backgrounds within the fields of history, sociology, and political science, we intend to provide new insights on the multiplicity, depth and limits of the forms of influence that corporations, or the organizations furthering their interests – business associations, think tanks, communication or public relations agencies, foundations, etc. –, have on public policy.

    Dis/Orienting Identity

    This half-day symposium will examine how visual and material culture is used to manipulate or mediate identity. The event will take a critical look at the effects of mass media on self- perception and consider how marginalized groups—whether non-Western or over the age of 65—are taking charge of their own cultural representation through fashion, performance, and discourse.

    Champs, mondes et réseaux de la bande dessinée : le cas de Glénat

    Distinct à la fois des maisons plus traditionnelles comme Dupuis ou Dargaud et des institutions alternatives plus récentes comme L’Association ou Frémok, Glénat est un éditeur original, qui offre des prises diverses et solides permettant de rendre compte de ses rouages et logiques. Fondée en 1969 à Grenoble par le bédéphile amateur jacques Glénat, la maison voit le jour la même année que le fanzine Schtroumpf qui deviendra les fameux cahiers de la bande dessinée (1969-1990), dirigés par Thierry Groensteen à partir de 1984 et qui constituent une clé pour saisir l’émergence d’un discours critique sur la bande dessinée. Glénat investit dans les styles et genres très divers (fantastique, humour, aventure, histoire…) avec dans chaque domaine des succès retentissants comme Les Passagers du vent de François Bourgeon (1980-87) jusqu’à Il était une fois en France (2007-2012).

    Sharing meals. Social aspects of eating and cooking together

    Eating involves many other dimensions than just ingesting food. It is especially a social act, as it involves the social position and relationships of the individual in all of the included practices: supplying, cooking, dressing, ordering, ingesting, clearing, washing-up, managing left-overs, etc.  This symposium offers to explore, with a social science approach, the different dimensions associated with sharing meals (non exhaustive): Cultural differences in the manners of sharing meals; Specificity of the sharing of cooking times regarding the sharing of meal times; Use of commensality as a social action mean; Symbolic representation of the benefits of sharing meals (psychological, physiological, social); Comparison of meals regarding other eating times (snacking); Political/Diplomatic use of meals; Organization, perception and role of meals in institutions (school canteens, hospital, nursing homes, prisons…).

    Fake News in Library and Information Science

    "Open Information Science" Topical Issue

    Recent developments in the information sphere have created an environment of distrust and have emphasized the need for increased information/media/digital literacy. In this information environment, the notion of a universal truth is virtually non-existent and individuals seemingly choose their own truth. Also problematic is the general idea that any information with which one disagrees can be labeled “fake.” While information professionals have always advocated for the critical evaluation of information and sources, there has not been a connection made between Library and Information Science as a discipline and what the U.S. has been experiencing with regards to fake news, the weaponization of information, or the need for information literacy. This gap is reflective of the longstanding disconnect between the public and Library and Information Science.

    Insularities and enclaves in colonial and post-colonial circumstances

    Crossings, conflicts and identitarian constructions (15th - 21st centuries)

    Historically, archipelagos were considered as rehearsal spaces for new social constructions. Since colonization and, afterwards, colonialism and imperialism, many of them evolved in association with the strengthening of international networks, while others did not escape isolation and forced unequal integration in different spaces. On the other hand, enclaves were the outcome of historical circumstances, often externally decided, which prompted some degree of insularity regarding the immediate geographical surroundings. When those territories did not become independent, there were demands for autonomy or, at least, some underlying emancipatory and anti-colonialist feelings. Even when these feelings did not mobilize relevant segments of the population, they disclose the alterity – above all cultural – in regard to sovereignty.

    Gendering Humanitarian Knowledge

    Global Histories of Compassion from the Mid-Nineteenth Century to the Present

    The conference invites scholars to think about the notion of "humanitarian knowledge" in a multidisciplinary way, by combining perspectives such as gender history, the histories ofemotions and the body, literary and visual culture studies, global health history, as well as the history of institutions and their agents. All of them are useful to explore the transnational networks through which humanitarian practices and ideas have been promoted, disseminated and standardised.The conference brings together scholars interested in working on the history of humanitarian knowledge from a gender perspective. The interventions deal with stories of flesh and blood, which put women’s and men’s humanitarian experiences at their centre, in order to inscribe their local practices within a global history of compassion from the mid-nineteenth century to the present.

    The Many Lives of Europe's Audiovisual Heritage Online

    During the past decade, a massive body of European audiovisual heritage has become accessible online: on video sharing sites and websites of archives, or through initiatives such as and Once online, audiovisual heritage circulates in diverse ways: users watch, share, like, or dislike it; they comment, appropriate, and download videos for remix and recirculation. It thus becomes part of the popular consumption of history, potentially creating new interpretations of heritage materials, challenging authorised perspectives. Heritage institutions perceive the consequences of the recent technological transformations of the sector as a major challenge and opportunity.

    The New Metaphysics: Analytic/Continental Crossovers

    Topical Issue of "Open Philosophy" Review

    The aim of this issue is to explicate and further develop recent work bridging traditional divisions between analytic and continental philosophy. Since the waning days of logical positivism, analytic philosophers have tended to understand philosophy as having a “core” of metaphysics construed broadly enough to include work in epistemology, logic, and the philosophy of mind. Continental philosophers, on the other hand, have traditionally viewed either phenomenology or value theory as most central to the philosophical enterprise. Despite pursuing common problems and sharing much common heritage, analytic and continental philosophy have remained methodologically and sociologically divided.

    Minimising Risks, Selling Promises?

    Reproductive Health, Techno-Scientific Innovations and the Production of Ignorance

    Over the last decades, medical techno-scientific innovations have radically transformed reproductive processes at every level by putting the reproductive body under strict biomedical surveillance and submitting it to significant technological manipulation. Most of these innovations, often promoted as miracles and even revolutions, were generalised very rapidly thanks to ever-growing national and global markets. Their side effects on health were, however, insufficiently studied, or even ignored, until scandals (diethylstilbestrol, thalidomide, primodos, Dalkon Shield) or controversies (contraceptive pill, hormonal replacement therapy) unavoidably made them public. At the crossroads of STS, sociology of risk, medical anthropology, gender studies and ignorance studies, the aim of this international conference is to analyse the dynamics of ignorance production prior to, during but also after the rapid expansion of reproductive technologies, innovations and products.

    Innovative mobility and urban design. Mirroring contemporary metropolises

    The symposium is an invitation addressed to both new and established researchers, as well as experts from both the private or public spheres, who seek to rethink - or even revolutionize - mobility as a societal problem and/or practice, as well as its relation to metropolitan territories and places, through fields of knowledge and action as varied as architecture, engineering, geography, new technologies, and others. The underlying premise of this event is that a new inter-disciplinary, inter-cultural and inter-stakeholder dialogue is necessary in order to respond effectively to the urban mobility issues put forward by the three pillars (social, political and cultural) of sustainable development. How to combine the growing necessity and desire for speed in travel, with the imperative of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases? At the same time, how to achieve better quality public space dedicated to or crossed by mobility? How to ensure that the mobility of people, whether undergone or chosen, is part of a municipal and societal project that is acceptable and sustainable?
