    What Latin America says to Europe: circulations, imaginaries, viewpoints (and fantasies)

    We often tend to think of Latin America as a periphery of the global space. The very idea of globalization is frequently equated with that of cultural “Americanization”. Understood as a “United States of America-nization”, it is generally considered only as a circulation of ideas, models, knowledge, techniques or cultural objects from the North or the West to the South. However, working on Latin America frequently leads us to encounter traces of it or to identify its influence in Europe. Politics, culture or knowledge: the objective of this conference is to study some of the diverse forms of Latin American presence in Europe and/or in the European gaze. The works discussed here will take these circulations as an object, analyzing their processes, forms and impact. But they can also take a more reflexive form, by questioning the status of European-based researchers interested in Latin America.

    Caring for Urban Nature

    Revue « Espaces et Sociétés »

    This issue of the journal Espaces et Sociétés is focued on the contributions of city-dwellers to the care of greenery in the city, with particular emphasis on two key perspectives. In the first, we look solely at practices that emerge in the public space, whether spontaneous and developed outside organised structures, or encouraged by institutional entities established by the public authorities. In the second perspective, the aim is to look critically at the urban nature activities undertaken by individuals, i.e. outside the collective practices traditionally pursued in shared gardens or big urban projects by public authorities, cooperatives or civil society organisations. International comparisons or case studies from outside France are welcome. Papers are expected in French, English and Spanish.

    Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries

    As part of its research programme “Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The court was a microcosm of society under the Ancien Régime. The royal family and the great noblemen were not only in each other’s company, but they also rubbed shoulders with a whole crowd of office-holders of greater or lesser importance, who ensured the smooth running of this mechanism.

    Transformer et s’approprier l’espace dans les empires ibériques du XVe au XVIIe siècle

    Du XVIe au XIXe siècles, de nombreux territoires à travers le globe sont transformés par l’impérialisme des couronnes espagnole et portugaise. L’appropriation et la transformation des territoires et des paysages jouent un rôle central dans les processus coloniaux des empires ibériques. En interrogeant la transformation et reconstruction spatiale à l’époque coloniale, cette journée d’étude doctorale entend questionner la spécificité des outils et pratiques mis en place dans les empires ibériques pour maîtriser l’espace et exploiter les ressources des différents territoires qui les composent entre le XVe et XVIIe siècle.

    The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles

    As part of its research programme “The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Five themes will contribute to the ideas about ways in which these galleries can be made more accessible to the public. Indeed, in spite of its gaps, this collection offers strong evidence of a specific view of the history of France that the Museum of the Palace of Versailles should analyse and question today.

    Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)

    As part of its research programme “Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Research will be organised along five different lines, through which the idea of the “perfect court”, such as we find at Versailles, can be defined: organisational model, public and private areas in the residence, reigning and governing in Europe, palace and democracy, State and palace rituals.

    L’Amérique latine dans la presse du franquisme, 1966-1975

    L’ampleur transnationale du moment ’68 et ses manifestations particulièrement importantes en Amérique latine se présentent comme une source significative afin d’analyser la présence de l’Amérique latine dans la presse de la fin du franquisme, le suivi des conflits socio-politiques du continent ou les lectures internes faites par les médias espagnols des expériences latino-américaines. Cette journée d’étude aura pour objectif de s’interroger sur les conditions de production de l’information en Espagne à partir de 1966 en relation avec l’Amérique latine.

    Emerging Terminologies and Specialised Translation

    Issue 1/2024 of the journal Studia Universitatis Babe ş-Bolyai, series Philologia will be focused on interdisciplinary approaches to emerging terminologies and the problems of specialised translation in these thematic and textual contexts. This issue aims to deepen the analysis of and expand debates in the new fields of terminological investigation of lesser-researched specialised domains of the contemporary world, as well as in already existing specialised domains which are enriched by emergent concepts, based on their corresponding neological needs.

    Histoires familiales, histoire nationale : effets de miroir sur les scènes hispaniques contemporaines

    La prégnance du motif familial, dans les représentations dramatiques dès l’Antiquité, s’est cristallisée depuis le tournant contemporain autour du jeu d’échelle entre famille et nation, offrant un champ de recherches particulièrement riche. C’est pourquoi ce colloque choisit d’examiner, dans le théâtre espagnol et latino-américain aux XXe et XXIe siècles, les rapports étroits entre la représentation des crises familiales et la mise en scène des conflits nationaux.

    L’objectif de ce colloque est de chercher à mieux comprendre la représentation du phénomène du favori royal dans l’opinion publique européenne entre le XVIe et le XVIIIe siècle et, tout particulièrement, les liens existants entre les critiques et les images déformées de cette pratique dans l’ensemble des monarchies concernées.

    Myth: Theories of a Controversial Concept

    The bibliography on modern reworkings of mythical narratives is immense: Greco-Latin myths in novels and adventure films, adaptations of Celtic, Norse, or Slavic myths in cinema, TV series and comics, the relationships between Eastern and Western myths… The list is endless and somehow overabundant compared to the smaller (though still huge) bibliography of theories of myth. Different key factors of our contemporary society (the phenomenon of globalisation, the dogmas of relativism, the logics of immanence) make the definition of myth even more difficult for the non-specialized public and for academic researchers alike. These questions, among others, are those that the 7th International Conference on Myth Criticism aims to answer.

    Crise des réfugiés ukrainiens versus méditerranéens

    Des politiques en crise ou des promesses dans la question migratoire ?

    The war in Ukraine has provoked an unprecedented humanitarian surge. The various actors: governments, NGOs, associations, civil societies are organizing themselves to offer assistance to Ukrainian refugees. The European Union is applying a 2001 directive, which allows for the granting of temporary protection status in order to guarantee rapid access to rights: right of residence, access to work, to healthcare, to housing, education... to a stay in decent and safe conditions. These exceptional conditions granted to refugees contrast with the conditions of Mediterranean refugees. It is in this context that the United Nations human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, welcomes this humanitarian solidarity but also recalls that other migrants and refugees are often faced with refoulement and criminalization at the EU's borders and beyond.

    The Figure of the Multilingual Child in Literature

    Call fot an edited volume

    This edited volume aims to extend the findings of the conference "The Figure of the Multilingual Child in Literature". This edited volume aims at analysing child narrators and/or figures evolving in and between several languages – either because they speak at least two languages, or because their family, school or country is made up of a web of languages.  These child figures can be autobiographical or autofictional shadows of the author. They can also be pure beings of paper. In all these cases, their identity is made of a fabric woven of all their languages, whether they are acquired simultaneously or successively, within the otherness of their monolingual fellow creatures.

    Féminisme(s) en mouvement dans l’aire artistique hispanophone (des années 2010 à nos jours)

    Lors de cette journée d’étude, nous nous proposons d’explorer la polysémie du vocable « mouvement » qui ouvre, à notre sens, un large éventail épistémologique et disciplinaire lié aux féminisme(s) dans l’aire hispanophone (Amérique latine, Espagne et Guinée Équatoriale). Nous recueillerons donc des propositions de communication qui se centreront sur les productions artistiques « en mouvement ». Nous faisons ainsi appel aux chercheur·es spécialisé·es dans les études de genre, les études culturelles, les études hispaniques et hispano-américaines, l’histoire de l’art, les arts plastiques, les sciences politiques, la sociologie ou encore l’anthropologie.

    Analysis of relics, hagiographic legends and Carolingian memories

    Around the body of the Apostle James the Greater in Toulouse

    Since the 14th century, the Basilica of Saint-Sernin in Toulouse has been proud to possess the entire body of James the Greater. After a first preparatory seminar on 11 March 2019 in Toulouse (Vraies et fausses reliques: un vrai faux problème), a workshop was held on 10 December 2021 (Les reliques toulousaines de Jacques le Majeur), focusing on the material aspects (examination of bones, reliquaries, and authentic items). In a final stage, the results of these analyses should be put into perspective during a meeting which would lead to the writing of a monograph bringing together all the studies carried out on the relics of Saint James in Toulouse.

    Spectres précoloniaux et résurgences autochtones dans les arts et la littérature : regards croisés Canaries / Caraïbes

    Ce colloque international vise à interroger les résurgences, dans la littérature et les arts, des mythes et figures des peuples précoloniaux de l’archipel canarien (benahoaritas, bimbaches, canari, gomeritas, guanches, mahos, etc.) et de l’archipel caribéen (arawaks, kalinagos, karibs, taïnos, etc.), depuis le XIXe siècle jusqu’à nos jours. Il s’agit notamment de comprendre dans quelle mesure l’hantologie, « une ontologie assiégée par des fantômes » (Derrida, 2012 : 24), et la spectralité peuvent devenir des prismes pour penser la présence du précolonial dans les arts et la littérature des Canaries et des Caraïbes.

    Decentering the analysis of Africa-China relations

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°251 (2023-1)

    The question put forward by the vast majority of works studying the relations between Africa and China is “What is China doing in Africa? What are the Chinese doing in Africa?”, thus often overlooking the anthropological dimension of social, economic, and political change in which African actors can reclaim their place, in other words an approach that would decenter China and the Chinese in order to shed light on the microfoundations of the macroprocesses of development by examining Africa and Africans. Agency – or agentivité as it is now commonly called in French – is defined here as the ability to effect or introduce socio-economic and political changes in the arena in which the actors are involved. By addressing the question of African agentive practices and norms in Afro-Chinese relations, this call for papers therefore leads to decentering China to focus on Africa.

    AntiAtlas of Epistemicide

    AntiAtlas of Epistemicide is a collaborative artistic and scientific project that brings together notices and synthetic articles on epistemicides, past or present, anywhere on the planet. The articles collected in this book will be accompanied by a map designed specifically for each example of an epistemicide. The question being as singular as it is unfathomable, this project does not have an encyclopedic aim, but to the contrary, to establish a non-exhaustive and subjective atlas, assumed to be both a scientific work and an artistic catalogue. As all disciplinary fields are concerned by this question, antiAtlas of Epistemicide is opening its call for contributions to a authors of all disciplinary affiliations.

    Socio-poétiques urbaines : construire le discours social de la ville dans la littérature

    Atlante, Revue d’études romanes numéro 17 (automne 2022)

    Depuis que Roland Barthes a proposé, dans son article célèbre « Sémiologie et Urbanisme » (1967), de mener l’analyse de la ville du point de vue sémiologique, les écoles critiques ont été nombreuses à se livrer à cette tâche tout en poursuivant, de façon privilégiée, la tradition des études de poétique de l’imaginaire. Malgré une telle richesse, les études se font moins nombreuses quand il s’agit de parler de la construction significative de la ville d’un point de vue social, voire sociopolitique, à partir de ses représentations littéraires. En raison de ce que représentent les villes pour la philologie romane, et en raison des facteurs linguistiques et géographiques qui motivent leurs origines et leurs figurations littéraires différentes tout en préservant des points de convergence, nous croyons que le domaine roman constitue l’espace idéal pour délimiter la portée de ce volume.

    Learning from territories / Teaching territories

    In German (lehren / lernen) as in Arabic (تعليم / تعلم), a single letter distinguishes the concept of teaching from the concept of learning. Whether defined as a theoretical object of scientific knowledge that can be taught or as a body of practices that can be passed on, there is no escaping the need to address the issue of the relationship between the apparent universality of the concept of territory, on the one hand, and the variety of uses to which the term is put and the range of practices associated with it, on the other. The sixth CIST conference will focus on two questions: how to teach about territories (academic knowledge, empirical methods, disciplinary approaches, etc.) and how to learn from territories (observing, exploring, describing, experiencing, etc.).
