    Ethnic and Religious Minorities and their Media in the English-speaking world

    This one-day conference, organized by GRER-ICT Les Europes dans le monde (UR 337, Université Paris Cité) and IHRIM (Université Clermont Auvergne) is dedicated to illuminating a crucial yet underexplored area: the media (written press, radio, television, internet, etc.) of ethnic and/or religious minorities in Great Britain, the United States, South Africa, and other English-speaking countries. These minority media, operating on the fringes of the dominant mainstream media, are not just a significant platform, but also an essential lifeline for the ethnic and/or religious minorities they represent.

    Discourses, Realities and Representations of Defiance

    Literatures, Cultures and Civilisations of the Anglo-Saxon World, Commonwealth and BRICS countries

    The conference theme, understanding defiance in the Anglo-Saxon world, Commonwealth, and BRICS countries, is of significant importance in the field of humanities and social sciences. We aim to identify, at various points in their histories, how defiance is constructed and understood in the sense of 'challenge' that the French word défiance shares with the English noun defiance - which appeared in the early 14th century under the influence of the French word desfiance. Your research and insights will contribute to our collective understanding of this crucial aspect.  This conference is part of the debate opened up by Nancy Nyquist Potter (2016) in her introduction to her eulogy of defiance.

    What Matters in Contemporary Anglophone Cultures

    “What Matters” is an invitation to rethink the weight of habits, established structures and validated categories. Arguing that someone/something counts goes against economic/budgetary/financial accounting, which is typically the work of a dominant power that keeps precise accounts, compiling or capitalising, trying to contain or control. What matters” is an invitation to give an account of what does not seem to count, what is unthought of or invisible. What matters” is a response to what is challenging research, and a direct appeal to its agency to redefine the common space and what would be a (co-)habitable world. It invites us to grasp how research can make people act and react, and provoke awakening. We are looking for papers in linguistic, literary, dramatic, historical, sociological, political, film and serial studies and, more broadly, cultural studies.

    Polarisation of British and American societies

    Causes, consequences, perspectives

    The growing polarisation within American and British societies raises profound questions about the mechanisms by which public opinion is influenced and the political and social transformations that ensue. This polarisation expresses itself at several levels, notably between different age groups, between levels of education, and between urban and rural areas. We assume here that the apparent polarisation of US and UK societies has increased in recent years, not least due to the rise to power and tenure of Donald J. Trump in the US and the vote in favour of Brexit in the UK. The aim will be to understand how these two events have acted as catalysts reinforcing divisions already present and creating new forms of divisions.

    Samurai and Knights, Medieval and Early Modern Worlds East and West in Texts and Films: Inter-Cultural Echoes and Historical, Mythological and Aesthetic Perspectives

    This international conference will explore the cultural differences, similarities and potential bridges between the eastern and western worlds as envisaged during the medieval and early modern periods, including their represention in art, texts and legends, poetry, and pictorial and cinematographic productions. Since the areas of investigation are expansive, Japan is granted a primary place as the pivotal axis for the eastern world. This does exclude Persia, India or China. The northern, English and Mediterranean European areas will primarily represent the occidental world.

    Reflections on 25 years of Devolution: Comparisons, Interactions and Cross-Influences

    As part of the research programme of the “WISE Connections (Wales-Ireland-Scotland-England)” network which brings together researchers concerned with the study of the relationship between the British and Irish Isles in a horizontal manner rather than through a centre-periphery perspective, a study day entitled “Reflections on 25 years of Devolution: Comparisons, Interactions and Cross-Influences” will take place at Toulouse-Jean Jaurès University on 4 October 2024. This study day will initiate a process of reflection that will culminate in the publication of a book. It will aim at taking stock of a quarter of a century of existence of devolution: not only of the way in which devolution has evolved by territory, but also and above all of the cooperation and mutual influences between Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish institutions, as well as of the relations between these institutions and the central institutions in London.

    Consent, Refuse, Surrender: Shadows of Conquest during the English Restoration 1660-1714

    This conference opens a conversation between literary, cultural, historical, philosophical, legal, medical, and artistic perspectives to analyse and historicise the mechanisms that structure the notions of consent, refusal and surrender, and to study their evolutions across the breadth of the period. The goal of this conference is both to analyse the specific expression of these notions during the Restoration period, and to see how they enable us to rethink it. Finally, this project is launched with the aim of establishing an interdisciplinary research group on the Restoration.

    Sex (Mis)Education in the English-Speaking World

    Historical, Literary and Socio-political Perspectives

    This call for papers seeks contributions that will engage with the competing forms of formal and informal sex education as they pertain to the English-speaking world with a special focus on English speaking societies from the Indian ocean. Our aim is to propose varied, innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to the broad question of sex education, welcoming papers from historians, linguists, literary critics, sociologists, specialists in gender studies and others. Keeping in mind Foucault’s notion that sex is both hyper visible and taboo, we aim at providing in-depth discussions which will help better understand both formal and informal sex education taking into account the fact that sex education is fraught with cultural tensions and political feuds.

    Un musicien et pianiste européen

    Amédée Méreaux, son œuvre et son temps

    Qui se souvient aujourd’hui d’Amédée Méreaux ? L’homme et le musicien n’ont certes pas totalement disparu de la mémoire de Rouen, où une petite rue éloignée du centre-ville porte encore aujourd’hui son nom. Néanmoins, cet artiste n’évoque aujourd’hui plus grand chose, même aux spécialistes de la période romantique. Pourtant, Amédée Méreaux (1802-1874) est une personnalité importante du monde musical à l’époque de Berlioz. Le colloque s’inscrit dans le cadre du 150e anniversaire de la disparition d’Amédée Méreaux. Il sera l’occasion d’étudier son parcours pluridisciplinaire, à la fois pour mesurer l’ampleur des tâches accomplies par le musicien que pour évaluer la cohérence globale d’une pensée artistique ayant le clavier, la classe et la plume pour véhicule. Quel regard porte Amédée Méreaux sur son temps ? Et quel impact ses recherches historiques ont pu avoir sur ses contemporains ?

    1715-1716: The Apex of Jacobitism?

    Origins, Representations, and Legacies: Essays in Honour of Daniel Szechi

    This collection of essays, entitled ’1715-16 : The Apex of Jacobitism ? Origins, Representations and Legacies’, in honour of the life work of Professor Daniel Szechi aims to re-evaluate the 1715 rising in its broader international context and within the heritage of the long eighteenth century. Contributors who have encountered the Jacobite rising in their respective fields, for example, while studying its industrial, intellectual, and scholarly impact from the Treaty of Union to the present, are invited to propose their contributions. As Jacobitism was a ubiquitous landmark of the eighteenth century, researchers are invited to question the military, political, literary, and/or cultural significance of the rising. The editors are particularly interested in consequential research on the rising through a comparative perspective in the interdisciplinary fields of literature, material culture, and travel or media studies.

    Fantasies of France: Exploring Transatlantic Misunderstandings from the 18th Century to the Present Days

    This one-day symposium for PhD students and early-career researchers aims to reflect on the French fantasies of North American authors and, conversely, on the North American fantasies of their French receptors and intermediaries. Participants are encouraged to think about the ways in which misunderstandings shaped the transatlantic literary relations which developed between North America and France from the 18th century up to the present days. The symposium hopes to foster discussions about these misunderstandings along three lines of investigation : that of literary criticism, with a focus on the emergence of a ‘fantasy of France’ in the works of North American authors (and on the disenchantments and surprises that go hand in hand with fantasies) ; that of the French reception of these same writers ; and, finally, that of translation.
