    Voices of the South (Guyanas, Latin America, Caribbean, West Africa)

    When speech becomes authoritative and oral serves as a writing of history

    This issue aims to curate articles dedicated to exploring the voices that resonate from these regions. Central to our inquiry is the exploration of memory – individual or collective recollections of lived experiences, orally transmitted across generations, and culturally embedded within communities. This memory is particularly important in oral tradition societies, in West Africa for example, as well as in the societies and cultures of the Americas (including Guiana and the Caribbean). As a resolutely multidisciplinary dossier, it will welcome texts focusing on the words of the “people of the South,” as witness-spectators or witness-actors, and on the uses to which these words are put in research in the humanities and social sciences.

    Partout et en tous temps ? Les lieux propices au harcèlement sexuel avant #metoo

    Le projet AVISA, démarré en 2020, a pour objet d’écrire l’histoire du harcèlement sexuel en Occident sur la longue période. Ses membres se sont, dans un premier temps, interrogé sur les termes utilisés pour rendre compte de cet impensé du droit jusque dans les années 1980. Après l’interrogation de la figure du harceleur au début de l’année 2024, et donc du « qui » harcèle, ce colloque se posera donc la question du « où » et du « quand ». Poursuivant les travaux précédents, les communications sont invitées à envisager l’ensemble des lieux propices à ce type de comportements et à en dresser une cartographie sur la base de dénonciations et témoignages privés (archives, correspondances…) et publics (livres de conduite, presse) mais également à travers l’analyse d’œuvres littéraires, artistiques et médiatiques.

    The Migration and Climate Nexus

    The aim of this conference is to promote cross-disciplinary conversations around the climate and migration. This includes the complex issue of the role played by climate variation, through environment upheavals, in driving population movements. This issue is commonly referred to as “climate migration”. This conference is also an opportunity to encourage greater interaction between the climate sciences on the one hand, and the humanities and social sciences on the other; such interaction is critical for working on this cross-disciplinary subject.

    Political Speeches in Film

    In 1970, Michel Foucault highlighted the links between discourse and power in his inaugural lecture at the Collège de France. This issue is also found in films. Even though Costa-Gavras has stated that “cinema is not a political discourse but a spectacle”, it seems that political discourse and movies are closely linked. This is demonstrated by the many films in which characters speak out in public to defend a cause, exploring the very nature of politics as the art of representation. This transdisciplinary conference aims to bring together scholars from all horizons to explore, in the words of Hannah Arendt, politics as “a space between people”, and its two-way relationship with movies through speeches.

    The Functions of Surrealism

    As part of the celebrations for the centenary of Breton’s first Manifesto of Surrealism (1924), the Conference will explore the functions of Surrealism in aesthetic, poetic, ethical, and political terms, examining the Movement’s impact on several fields of knowledge. Going beyond the divisive approach either praising or criticising the Movement, the conference intends to explore Surrealism with a pragmatic approach, focussing on the variety of its effects. The focus will thus be on Surrealism as a cultural object, in the perspective of tracing a history of the narratives of the Movement with the aim less of assessing their “truth” but rather of understanding their scopes and assumptions. The approach will allow to reconsider the several forms of reception of Surrealism with a novel and interdisciplinary methodology, thus suggesting new reconsideration of the legacy of the Movement.

    Fantasy flora

    “Fantasy Art and Studies” Journal

    Branchiflora, athelas, feainnewedd or rougeoyeur: these are the names of some of the imaginary plants that grow in fantasy worlds. Whether marvellous or not, invented from scratch or borrowed from our reality, flora plays a part in the world-building process. As a constituent element of the xeno-encyclopaedia of a work, it enriches a fictional world, giving it depth and enabling readers to better imagine the space in which they are immersed. The 17th issue of Fantasy Art and Studies aims to explore the flora in fantasy works.

    Project manager for the project "The reception of ancient Greece in pre-modern French literature and illustrations of manuscripts and printed books (1320-1550): how invented memories shaped the identity of European communities"

    ERC Advanced Grant 2020 AGRELITA

    Les études des premiers siècles de la réception de l’Antiquité grecque en Europe occidentale pré-moderne ont porté jusqu’ici quasi exclusivement sur la transmission des textes grecs antiques aux XVe et XVIe siècles, le renouveau de l’enseignement du grec, les éditions des textes grecs et les travaux latins des humanistes hellénistes. Néanmoins dans les siècles qui précèdent, malgré la perte quasi générale de la maîtrise du grec et de la majorité des œuvres grecques, la Grèce ancienne n’était pas méconnue ni ignorée. Des traductions arabo-latines de textes grecs ont vu le jour, mais aussi, pour des publics plus larges et à partir de sources diverses, de nombreuses œuvres vernaculaires ont élaboré de riches représentations de la Grèce ancienne. Or leur étude n’a jamais été menée. Se situant aux frontières des études littéraires, de l’histoire du livre et de l’histoire de l’art, l’ambition d’AGRELITA est ainsi d’étudier les appropriations littéraires et artistiques de la Grèce ancienne par des auteurs qui, des années 1320 à 1550, n’ont pas été en contact direct avec les œuvres grecques. Le project manager vient en appui au porteur du projet pour l’accompagner dans la mise en œuvre de celui-ci.

    Considering the language(s) : power and limitations

    GRAPHÉ, our junior research laboratory, will hold its first symposium. This symposium is open to junior as well as experienced researchers and mainly aims at understanding and analysing the ways in which language can be manipulated in contexts of power. It welcomes researchers from various disciplines and fields of study wishing to work on vastly different eras and places, so that the approaches may be diverse and echo one another in a fruitful discussion. As the laboratory also engages in an epistemological approach, the symposium will enable the participants to take part in a questioning of the means and methods available to researchers in order to perceive the tangibility of actions through language.

    Rebuilding a History: Indigenous books and print material in Québec

    Mémoires du livre/Studies in Book Culture, vol. 16-no. 1 / Spring 2025

    Shedding light on the stakes involved in Indigenous print material and books from the perspective of a history of the book captures the colonial dynamics at work in this literary milieu while highlighting the decolonization movements also taking place there. Despite significant increases in facilities and events dedicated to Indigenous books and print material, up until now few academic works have addressed the historic and contemporary dynamics around the field of Indigenous books in Québec. It is these dynamics that the present issue of Mémoires du livre / Studies in Book Culture aims to address.

    In Relation to Life

    Biological Relationality in Contemporary Science, Theory, and Politics

    La relationalité, en tant que concept et cadre théorique, est devenue une composante essentielle dans les sciences, théories et politiques contemporaines. Son importance transversale se manifeste dans sa description comme un changement de paradigme dans les sciences, un tournant relationnel dans la philosophie et la théorie, et une nouvelle finalité de la politique. Ce colloque vise à établir des liens entre les sciences, théories et politiques contemporaines en se concentrant sur les différentes façons dont ces dernières abordent et intègrent la relationalité biologique, comprise comme l'enchevêtrement des entités vivantes entre elles à différentes échelles (cellulaire, physiologique, multi-espèces, écosystémique, planétaire, etc.) et avec des entités non vivantes (polluants, machines, matière elle-même, etc.).

    Artist's tales

    “Trans-. Revue de littérature générale et comparée”, n. 31

    The next issue of the journal TRANS- aims to explore the possible narrative declinations of the artist’s representations in its theoretical, aesthetic and narratological implications, expanding the discourse beyond the novel, by also including the study of the role of artist’s secondary characters in plots, and by considering a timeframe ranging from ultra-contemporary to the use of anecdote and narration in premodern artistic writing.

    European ecofeminism(s)

    Depuis près de dix ans, des chercheuses de l’ILLE s’intéressent à l’écriture du Féminin à travers des sujets comme l’apprentissage du devenir féminin, le crime et son interrogation selon son genre, son origine, son parcours de vie. Les profonds changements dans la conception du monde et de l’environnement bouleversent ce thème, le prolongent et le font évoluer. Les structures asymétriques du pouvoir restent : les femmes dont la vie et l’action sont encore, malgré les progrès sociaux, souvent assimilés à une mise sous tutelle ou une mise hors champ, sont encore aujourd’hui dans la lutte contre le patriarcat et la domination masculine. Mais quel est l’apport de la perspective écologique dans ce domaine ? Depuis plus de trente ans, de nombreuses études internationales montrent un parallèle entre le traitement du féminin et de l’écologie, la pensée de la nature et du féminin connaissant le même combat dans l’écoféminisme.
