    Merleau-Ponty and Technology

    “Chiasmi International” n° 22, 2020

    The question of technology is not often directly addressed by Merleau-Ponty and is rarelythematized as such. The philosopher does not explicitly elaborate what today we would define as aphilosophy of technology or a theory of techniques. And yet, this issue often appears in thebackground of his analysis and sometimes it even constitutes the pivot of his questioning of themutual implication of the sense and the sensible, nature and culture.

    Regions and Regionalism in Canada: constructing and managing political, social and cultural territory

    In a contemporary age in which “think globally, act locally” has become a slogan, has the propensity to favour local initiatives resulted in shifting loyalties, has it modified the level at which citizens feel their strongest sense of belonging? Has it altered conceptions of citizenship? Has it had any impact on the locus of power? Which conceptual tools are most pertinent when trying to apprehend the social, cultural and political dimensions of regions and regionalism in Canada? How has the territorial notion of “region”, which comes out of the European tradition, been articulated to adapt to the Canadian context, especially with regard to the question of belonging (communities, nations, etc)?

    When real work is taboo

    Revue Laboreal journal: July 2020

    Les chercheurs et intervenants qui placent l’activité réelle de travail au cœur de leurs analyses et projets d’intervention sont parfois confrontés à de nombreuses difficultés dans la conduite de leurs projets. Car l’écart entre le travail prescrit et le travail réel ne fait pas toujours partie des évidences de leurs interlocuteurs. Pourtant, toute activité humaine est inanticipable totalement, et les règles qui tentent de la normaliser sont inévitablement redéfinies dans l’exercice de l’activité elle-même. Mais cette approche de l’activité a des exigences méthodologiques : il s’agit d’ancrer les démarches dans ce qui constitue le réel des situations de travail ; et la connaissance de celui-ci exige de le mettre en débat avec celles et ceux qui, à plusieurs égards, s’y engagent. L’objectif de ce dossier est de porter dans le champ d’une réflexion collective les difficultés qui jalonnent les projets pour lesquels le travail réel ne peut être un sujet tabou.

    New shape of sharing: networks, expertise, information

    A forum on current issues in European librarianship

    The New Shape of Sharing: Networks, Expertise, Information continues conversations begun at the New Directions Symposium held in Frankfurt in 2017. This multi-day forum of panel presentations, a poster session, and interactive breakout sessions on key issues facing Western European collections and public services will encourage both structured and unstructured debate. We will advance our understanding of the challenges and initiate action in three areas: design new models for collaborative collection development and services; explore a growing range of content and format types and what they mean for libraries and researchers, and highlight the evolving role of libraries and librarians in the research process.

    The interiors of Art nouveau period : analyse, restore, make accessible

    The Réseau Art Nouveau Network, a European network for the study, protection and enhancement of the Art Nouveau heritage, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Urban.brussels, founding member of RANN, is hosting an international symposium in Brussels, co- organised by RANN and urban.brussels in partnership with the Horta Museum and CIVA. If Art Nouveau is accessible to everyone in the street itself and while the Art Nouveau facades are the ornament of many European cities, the interiors arouse both from the academic world as from the general public many questions related to their accessibility, to their knowledge, to the refined restorations that they require.The aim of this symposium is to bring about a confrontation on research practices, understanding, conservation and enhancement of Art Nouveau interiors, in order to identify new research perspectives.

    Materialities and devotion (5th-15th centuries)

    V Medieval Europe in motion

    The last decades have witnessed the development of studies on material culture, favouring an inter- and multidisciplinary approach. This has enabled a more cohesive reading of the way in which the medieval Man related to his material environment, manipulating, adapting and transforming it, of the uses given to the objects he produced, the meanings attributed, how he interacted with them in cognitive and affective terms.

    Culinary Translation

    Translation and the culinary arts are universal human activities. Both have been practised since time immemorial. They are also eminently cultural. When Larbaud says “you are who you translate” (“Dis moi qui tu traduis, je te dirai qui tu es” – 1946: 95), he is obviously thinking of Brillat-Savarin’s aphorism, “you are what you eat” (“Dis moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai qui tu es” – [1825] 2017, Aphorisme IV, p. 19). Each has long been an object of investigation in the humanities and beyond, and the recent growth of research in the field of Translation Studies has been mirrored in the field of Food Studies. It seems curious that the complementary areas of investigation have not been combined more often. We have therefore decided to marry these two ingredients at an international conference to be held at the University of Lille, France, from 18 to 20 March 2020.

    Pop Culture in the Arabian Peninsula

    Arabian Humanities No. 14 (Spring 2020)

    The literature on pop culture in the Arabian Peninsula is particularly thin. While a rich scholarship has analyzed oral culture and vernacular poetry, less ink was spilled on those forms of culture that use new media, from tape recording to mobile phone aps and from TV production to YouTube. This issue of Arabian Humanities seeks to fill that gap and to analyze pop culture in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait.
