    Summer School - Europe

    2025 Summer Institute for the Study of East Central and Southeastern Europe

    The Summer Institute for the Study of East Central and Southeastern Europe (SISECSE) is a two-week residential workshop, that provides scholars of Eastern Europe time and space to dedicate to their own research and writing in a collaborative and interdisciplinary setting. In addition to conducting their own research, scholars will also have the opportunity to participate in a series of immersive discussions on a broad topic of shared academic interest. In 2025, discussions will explore “Epistemic Mistrust: Authorship, Credibility, and Knowledge Production.” Whether in times of crisis and war, or times of peace and stability, who do we trust to tell the truth? Whose stories do we listen to? With a growing lack of trust in traditional sources of knowledge—including suspicion of academic institutions—public confidence in the value of research is eroding. Nevertheless, humanistic approaches are essential for fostering critical thinking and promoting interdisciplinary dialogue.

    English for Specific Purposes in Action: Bridging the Gap between University and the Socio-economic Sector

    English is the most widely used language for international communication, known as the "lingua franca par excellence". It is in high demand in education, business, and tourism, leading countries like Algeria to adopt it. English for Specific Purposes (ESP) tailors content to specific fields, equipping learners with necessary language skills. Algeria is integrating English into education, especially higher education, but lacks uniformity in ESP across disciplines. The absence of ESP teacher training programs in Algeria complicates the issue. Efforts are needed to improve ESP teaching and learning. The government has implemented an English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) policy in higher education to increase global reach and produce qualified professionals. Success depends on qualified ESP practitioners and research for high-quality courses. This international event promotes collaboration to enhance ESP teaching practices and meet international standards.

    The Press and the Holocaust

    Public opinion and the press (taken in a broad sense to include newspapers, radio broadcasts, pamphlets, leaflets, etc.) became major actors of the world since WWI. Their significance can hardly be underestimated. After the first British and American research on the subject, in the late 1960s, and a couple of other scattered case studies that were published from the 1980s on, it was only recently (2023) that a Guide to Holocaust sources finally included a chapter on “Contemporary Newspapers as Sources for Approaching Holocaust Study.”This conference aims to contribute to a more comprehensive and all-encompassing understanding of the Holocaust by discussing how the European press covered nazi anti-Semitism and the Holocaust from a comparative historical perspective.

    The Worlds of Pre-Modern Neutrality (ca. 1400-1800): Norms, Institutions and Practices

    This symposium aims to contribute new insights to the long-term history of neutrality, focusing on its "pre modern" dimension broadly understood (ca. 1400-1800). Indeed, the law of neutrality started to emerge in the Early Modern Age through the practices and beliefs of the European state system, but also from its interactions with non-European normative and cultural systems. Different but complementary angles of approach can be used to understand this phenomenon: e.g. diplomatic history, IR history, political history, economic history and legal history. Throughout history, polities as well as private actors have interpreted neutrality in flexible and divergent ways, e.g. proposing a proactive-assertive approach or a more passive and inward looking one. Benefiting from multiple disciplinary perspectives, the symposium takes into consideration both the theory and the practice of neutrality, advancing our knowledge of the often-contested conceptualisation of legal regimes at sea as well as on land. Such a conceptualisation depended on the interaction between situations of peace and diverged across different temporal and spatial coordinates.

    Generations and Generational Time in the United States During the Long Nineteenth Century

    This conference will take place at Lille University, June 12-13, 2025, and will explore generations, generational thinking, and generational time in the United States during the long nineteenth century. In the wake of the Revolution the very idea of generations meant freedom from the parent country, and the possibility of taking turns to shape the nation. But generationality also implies a linear experience of time and logics of transmission which are not available to many oppressed groups, in the context of slavery in particular. Our goal is to provide an opportunity to investigate modes of relationality, kinship, or fellow-feeling throughout the nineteenth century while questioning and complicating the "generational model." We welcome contributions on the literature, the culture and the history of the United States in the long nineteenth century.

    Food, power and the African diaspora: Exploring intersections

    Issue of Civilisations journal vol.74, 2025

    Over the last decade the concept of decolonisation has circulated not just in academic circles but also in the political arena and activism in the global North-West. To what extent do decolonisation efforts carry the potential for food justice and in what ways are African diasporas concerned about the decolonisation of food systems and engaged in efforts to make their foods more accessible? We seek contributions that engage with the experiences of diasporic communities and their aspirations, struggles and actions to reshape African food systems. This issue seeks to explore socio-cultural, economic and political aspects of the foodways of the African diasporas. The focus is the dynamics and interplays of power shaping current African food systems and how African diasporas relate to and engage with their food traditions.

    “Vesper”. Rivista di architettura, arti e teoria | Journal of architecture, arts & theory

    The Sun, “mother” star of the solar system around which various bodies, including the Earth, revolve, whose fusion core produces energy and releases electromagnetic radiation, a flow of particles and neutrinos. In 2024, a surge of this radiation caused a storm capable of disrupting electrical grid transmissions on Earth. Located in the Orion Arm, the Sun not only significantly influences the climate on Earth, but is also the protagonist of recurring cosmogonic visions – from the ancient Egyptians, to pre-Columbian civilizations, to Tommaso Campanella’s City of the Sun – that place it at the center of religious and political systems as a source of irradiation and emanation (of life, power, knowledge). Studied and venerated, it has inspired various architectural works and projects that dedicate spaces and territories to it, such as the megalithic monuments built with consideration to its position during the summer solstice, or the Temple of Kukulkan in Mexico, designed to project snake-shaped shadows during the equinoxes.

    Going global? Chinese popular culture(s) and cultural platforms’ international contraflows

    Journal “Global Media and China (GMAC)”

    The main ambition of this call is to examine the strategies mobilized by Chinese cultural actors and to question the role of digital platforms in the attempt to create a cultural contraflow that could gain worldwide recognition. What are the specificities of the Chinese cultural industries and to what extent can they provide an alternative to the contemporary globalized cultural landscape? How do musicians, directors, content producers or game developers navigate their commodified and supervised environment domestically and strengthen their chances of success abroad? To what extent do Chinese cultural platforms take part in the broadcast and the recognition of Chinese popular culture(s) beyond the country’s borders, be it in the West or in other nations of the Global South?

    Conference, symposium - Prehistory and Antiquity

    European Roundtable on Southeast Asian Archaeology

    Current Research and Perspectives

    Europe-based researchers have a long tradition of Southeast Asian archaeological scholarship. A great deal has changed since our community last met in 2017 at EurASEAA in Poznan, Poland—both in Europe and in Southeast Asia, in academic and political spheres, and with global cultural shifts. We believe that it is essential that our community continues to meet to promote scientific exchanges and discuss thematic developments and prospects for the discipline and students. The 8th and morning of the 9th will be devoted to presentations of current research projects.

    Bringing Art Nouveau heritage back to life: theory and practice in restoration

    From the Venice Charter to the Turin Declaration

    The Réseau Art Nouveau Network is an European network for the study, protection and promotion of Art Nouveau heritage. 2024 also mark the 30th anniversary of the publication of the UNESCO Declaration of Turin, which established the guidelines for the practice and theory of restoring this heritage, infull respect of its material specificities. The punctuality of the analysis underpinning this declaration has not preserved it from oblivion. Having recalled the main assumptions of the Venice Charter, we would like to understand why 30 years after its publication the need was felt to draw up a code of intervention specifically dedicated to Art Nouveau. We would also like the conference to be an opportunity to clarify, through concrete examples, the critical fortune of the two UNESCO documents, aware that their implementation in Europe is not always systematic.

    Renewing the Social Contract

    The Challenge of Inclusivity and Democratic Government in Social Contract Theory

    The conference will explore how the idea of a social contract should be adapted or reconsidered to address these challenges by focusing on its relationship to democracy, and in particular to democratic government. How should social contracts be amended in the context of contemporary transformations of popular government, administrative power and regulatory frameworks? What is the role of law and legal institutions in these transformations? Are there alternative models that may keep social contracts open to contestation while establishing a legitimate foundation for governance? How are social contracts renewed or made resilient?
