    Post-soviet diaspora(s) in Western Europe (1991-2017)

    Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, millions of former soviet citizens crossed the national borders in search of better lives in new countries, in what was the biggest migration tide since the end of World War II. These Post-Soviet migrants were diverse in origins, strategies and expectations. They often represented a challenge to the orthodox views of migration processes, since in most cases these flows could not be easily described and analysed following commonly accepted theoretical frameworks. Everybody seemed to be on the move: labour migrants, political refugees, cross-border traders, “tourists” planning to forget their return... and in a short period, they spread all over Western Europe.

    Second World Urbanity: Between Capitalist and Communist Utopias

    Second World Urbanity: Between Capitalist and Communist Utopias seeks to investigate the history of the radical reshaping of the Soviet World (in our words - the Second World), that Ada Louise Huxtable reported on in the late 1960s. This project aims to bring together scholarly contributions on the various endeavors in the Second World to conceive, build, and inhabit a socialist cityscape that was an alternative to the segregated spaces of capitalist cities and the atomized world of suburbia. Imagining and designing urban space were undeniably powerful instruments of forging socialist modernity. Second World Urbanity pays close attention to the tensions between global challenges and locally driven agendas that made architects, planners, and ordinary dwellers alter socialist modernity according to more particular interests.

    Beyond French New Languages for African Diasporic Literature

    In recent years, Africans from former French colonies in both the Maghreb and Sub-Saharan regions have been settling in countries other than France and writing in languages other than French. This break with the colonial and postcolonial habits of la Françafrique – the familiar bind of metropole and colony – has been going on for years and is now ripe for analysis. Writing in German, Italian, Dutch, Catalan, Spanish, English, and other languages, these authors suggest new patterns of diasporic belonging and raise new questions about the postcolonial world. Issues of immigration, language choice, cosmopolitanism, global citizenship, and world literature will be addressed.

    The Caucasus and Central Asia, twenty years after independences: Questioning the notion of “South countries”

    Ce colloque clôture un projet ANR mené au Centre d'études des mondes russe, caucasien et centre européen (CERCEC, CNRS/EHESS), intitulé « Caucase et Asie Centrale : un autre Sud ? ». Il rassemblera à Almaty, outre les membres de l'équipe du projet, une cinquantaine de participants venus d'Asie Centrale, du Caucase, de Russie, d'Europe des Etats Unis et du Japon. Pluridisciplianire, ce colloque a pour ambition d’interroger la pertinence des outils heuristiques élaborés à partir de terrains situés au « Sud », mais aussi de la notion même de « Sud(s) » pour appréhender les périphéries méridionales de l’espace post-soviétique. Il entend réunir des chercheurs de toutes les disciplines des sciences sociales (sociologie, histoire, sciences politiques, géographie, anthropologie, démographie, économie). Colloque organisé avec le soutien de l'Agence Nationale pour la Recherche (programme ANR « Les Suds »). Final English version attached below / Русская версия в аттачменте ниже.

    Music and counterculture(s). Rock'n'Roll, the Sixties, the U.S. and beyond

    Ce numéro de Volume ! La revue des musiques populaires s’intéressera, par le détour de la musique, aux contre-cultures des années 1960 et au-dela – à ce mouvement hétérogène, son identité éclatée, sa circulation planétaire, ses origines, son influence et ses héritages. Nous invitons ainsi les chercheurs à étudier le phénomène de « la contre-culture » musicale mais aussi à en interroger la définition esthétique, culturelle, politique, historique et chronologique : que fut la contre-culture, et comment la musique l’a cimentée ? qu’est-ce qui l’identifie non seulement spécifiquement dans les années 1960-1970, mais aussi plus généralement au-delà : ses caractéristiques « formelles » (caractéristiques musicales, styles), son idéologie (militantisme, modes de vie) ou ce à quoi elle s’oppose (le système, les « valeurs américaines traditionnelles », la guerre, le capitalisme) ?

    In the Name of Art

    Investigation on the ambiguous status of generic artistic names from 1945 to now

    Ce colloque souhaite se pencher sur le statut ambigu des appellations artistiques depuis 1945 jusqu'à nos jours. Il questionnera aussi bien les étiquettes comme « Pop Art », « Art conceptuel » ou « Esthétique relationnelle », qui sont souvent présentées comme des « mouvements », que les diverses configurations (groupes, collectifs, entreprises...) comme Fluxus, Présence Panchounette ou Société Réaliste. Il s'agira de s'interroger sur les rapports compliqués qu'entretiennent les artistes avec les notions de communauté et de style, autrefois intrinsèquement liées dans le projet des avant-gardes historiques

    Workshop on Palestinian Refugee Camps in Jordan

    A Lasting Temporariness: Population, Space and Social Practices, 1990-2010

    This one day workshop will focus on the social and spatial organization of the camps, the social practices of their inhabitants, and the influences, interpretations and effects of what we call a lasting temporariness on the Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. Due to their significance and status, the camps represent key social spaces for exploring patterns of interaction between different religious groups and national minorities, for examining governance, for studying development and planning issues (infrastructure and services), for mapping the constitution of territories and identities, and for analyzing the development of an intricate network of economic and political connections inside and outside of their spaces.
