Summary

Réunir, autour d’une thématique suffisamment large, les jeunes dix-neuviémistes (doctorants et jeunes docteurs), par-delà les frontières des écoles doctorales et des champs historiographiques : voilà ce à quoi aspirent les Rencontres du XIXe siècle, organisées par un comité issu de plus d’une dizaine d’institutions différentes. Avec justement, pour cette première édition, une réflexion autour de la rencontre, tant dans ses dimensions les plus concrètes que dans les sens métaphoriques qu’elle a pu revêtir au cours du XIXe siècle.

Argument

Aim of the Rencontres du XIXe siècle is to gather young researchers (phD and postdoc) around a wide range of topics and beyond specific historiographic approaches. The symposium is organized by young researchers belonging to more than 10 different labs. This is why we chose the general theme of “encounters” to explore, with this first meeting, various dimensions of XIX century.  

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

How encounters happen:

  • Random or organized, direct and indirect, with or without follow-up, individual or collective, private or public, official and non-official encounters.
  • Means and technologies of encounters: correspondences, translations, duels, debates, transportation, transfers.

Where and when encounters happen:

  • Far-reaching encounters: travels, exiles, diplomatic, ethnographic, religious missions, wars and battlefields, discoveries and explorations.
  • Encounters and everyday life: family, urban and rural networks, neighborhoods, clubs, associations, shops, salons, universal expositions, business encounters.

Who encounters who?

  • Ideological and professional encounters, commercial and scientific meetings: transmission, sharing or confrontation of knowledge, expertise, and ideas.
  • Political encounters with the State and institutions (administration, elections, military, diplomatic and colonial encounters); political encounters against the State (collective mobilization, militancy, propaganda, non-conventional or illegal protests, slave trade, piracy, trials and legal encounters.
