    Proust and screens

    Le colloque Proust et les écrans souhaite interroger l’image d’un Proust de plus en plus « mondialisé », « numérisé » et hyper-contemporain que renvoient tous les écrans connectés de notre époque, autant de projections et de diffractions dont l’inventaire n’a pas encore été entrepris par la critique proustienne.

    University Museums and their Publics

    University museums are still mainly visited by an insufficiently diverse audience limited to researchers/students/professors and a few families or informed amateurs. During this colloquium, we will address the reasons for this conjuncture and ask the nowadays practices of our university institutions: elitist speech? Dusty scenography? Not adapted communication means? University showcase? Too little known or heterogeneous collections? This colloquium aims in inviting university authorities and collection managers to engage a global thinking on their audience approach policy.

    Integrating Gender in the History of Humanitarian aid: Europe (20th –21st century)

    À l’heure des élections européennes, un colloque international se tient à Angers sur un sujet qui porte sur l’histoire de l’action humanitaire à l’échelle de l’Europe, à partir de la première guerre mondiale jusqu’à aujourd’hui avec l’investissement de l’Union européenne dans l’aide humanitaire. Le colloque pluridisciplinaire, Intégrer le genre à l’histoire de l’aide humanitaire, interroge l’action humanitaire au prisme des questions du genre. Il s’agit de comprendre en quoi le genre a pu avoir un impact sur le travail humanitaire et en quoi l’absence de prise en compte du genre a pu se répercuter sur les actions de terrain.

    The Legacies of Ursula K. Le Guin: Science, Fiction and Ethics for the Anthropocene

    Planetary ethics and aesthetics, interspecies communities, post-gender and anarchist societies, indigenous knowledge, vegetal sentience... The paths Ursula K. Le Guin has opened for our imagination to travel are numerous, subtle itineraries through which we might find ways to better inhabit the 21st century. The international bilingual conference “Le Guin's Legacies” will engage with her work from a multiplicity of perspectives, tracing its literary, ecological, philosophical, socio-economical and anthropological ramifications: its potential for re-engineering the world we live in.

    Conference, symposium - Economy

    Predatory state

    This symposium is part of a recent and very dynamic renewal of research on the State in economics involving a critical examination of two dominant postulates of the discipline: 1) the assumption of an apolitical State or a benevolent dictatorship which pursues no private interest maximizing the general interest. 2) The assumption of “soft trade”, i.e. the exclusion of social conflicts, inter-state and intra-state wars in the presence of markets. Our discussions aim to explore how the sovereign, prudential, and providential dimensions of the state can be interpreted if these two assumptions are dropped. What is the place of conflictual power in the genesis and evolution of the rules governing the distribution of wealth and economic, social, and ecological development?

    Biographies, Mobilities, and the Politics of Migration

    Midterm conference of the Research Network “Sociology of Migration” of the European Sociological Association

    Current political and media discourses on the questions of “integration”, “belonging” and “borders” are dominated by the perspectives of Western nation states. The objective of this midterm conference of the Research Network 35 “Sociology of Migration” of the European Sociological Association (ESA) is to shift the focus to the perspectives of those who are labeled and talked about in these debates and who become the target of ever-more complex and differentiated border and mobility regimes. This conference will, in other words, interrogate the way belongings and borders are presently challenged and reshaped on different levels (local, national, international) and how biographical perspectives in migration research can shed new light on these processes.

    Different Metals, Different Needs?

    Coinage in Western and Mediterranean Europe (5th–8th centuries)

    This Study Day is focused to show the coin repertoire of the Early Middle Ages in several metals and in the different areas of Europe, and trying to establish a nexus between them up to the first decades of the eight century which leads to important changes, that will be notably accentuated with the sudden Umayyad conquest of the Iberian Peninsula and the rise of the Carolingian Empire.

    Minorities between globalization and areal approaches

    Ninth Annual Symposium of the Consortium for Asian and African Studies (CAAS)

    The theme of this year’s conference is a critical questioning about the evolving concept and the diverse and complex realities of “Minorities” in Asia and Africa as well as among migrants from these areas all over the world. The construction of the concept of “Minority" fits different definitions in terms of international law and it occasionally varied according to places and periods. Minorities arise in Asia and in Africa? What situations does the recognition of identity pluralism conduce to? Can any “areal” specificity be distinguished on this point? How does the “Minority Law” has evolved, within the framework of the willingness of the international organizations since 1947 to ensure and to protect it? The issue of Minorities in the context of immigration and the creation of Diaspora groups will be also explored.

    Textiles and Gender: Production to wardrobe from the Orient to the Mediterranean in Antiquity

    Textiles and gender intertwine on many levels, from the transformation of raw materials into fabric at one end, to dress and garments, and the construction of identity at the other. The conference will examine the gender division of work in the production of textiles, as well as attitudes to dress and gender across the Near East and Mediterranean culture in antiquity (c. 3000 BCE-300CE), tracing both cross-cultural and culturally specific associations.

    Thinking Latin-American Right-Wings in the XXth Century

    This conference is the continuation of two previous conferences held in France (2014) and Argentina (2016) which saw the gradual emergence of a community of researchers working on the questions of identities, ideas, practices and discourses of actors and movements from Latin American rightwing. It is difficult to establish the precise conceptual limits of the rightwing because of the heterogeneity and plurality of the groups and movements that have historically been part of this family and which are thus characterized by the presence of diverse political traditions. It is therefore essential to imagine flexible boundaries when considering rightwing history and taking into account the changes it experienced over time. Our purpose is not to establish canonical definitions, but rather to contribute to set general frameworks for this field of study whose historical relevance and actuality are no longer to be demonstrated, but whose limits and fundamental characteristics are still debated.

    Letters between women, exchanges and epistolary mediations

    Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, 8th-15th century

    Première rencontre de MISSIVA (Lettres de femmes dans l’Europe médiévale, Espagne, France, Italie, Portugal, VIIIe-XVe s.) dans le cadre des programmes pluriannuels de l’École des hautes études hispaniques et ibériques, ce colloque international propose une réflexion sur l’intérêt de l’épistolaire pour appréhender l’histoire des femmes. Il est consacré en particulier à la correspondance entre femmes et à l’émergence de ce que l’on pourrait considérer comme de véritables chaînes de médiation, ainsi qu’aux enjeux de ce type de sources. Dans quels contextes les femmes s’écrivent-elles et à quel propos ? Ces documents ont-ils une spécificité formelle et discursive ? Que révèlent les lettres de femmes des liens qu’elles entretiennent avec leurs correspondants ? Que nous apprennent-elles du champ d’action et d’influence de ces femmes ? Telles sont les questions qui seront abordées au cours de la manifestation scientifique.

    Rostros judíos del Occidente medieval

    45 semana internacional de estudios medievales de Estella

    The International Week of Medieval Studies of Estella tackles for the first time Jewish communities in the Western Middle Ages.

This edition puts the focus on the profiles, the light and shade, the countenances of these communities. Starting with the history of the Jewish culture, its physical and mental integration into the medieval worlds, its presence in the lifestyle of the period and the images that were produced and still remain in the collective cultural heritage. An exercise of history and memory on the narrative of the Sephardic exile will open the sessions consecrated to the forms of integration and of exclusion of these communities and their material and cultural manifestations.

    War as Contact Zone in the Nineteenth Century

    The workshop seeks to encourage further debate on the mechanics of encounter and transfer processes in war during the "long nineteenth century" (1789-1914). It wiil also explore how historians working on this subject can use new digital methods and impact case studies to make their findings accessible to the public. The choice of period is informed by this era’s manifold innovations in such fields as communication, mass transport, weaponry, international law and the conduct of war, which have generated fruitful dialogue on the question whether the nineteenth century set the path for a totalitarianisation of warfare or should instead be evaluated on their own terms.

    Emergence of Mind

    One of the impressive new areas of scientific interest is the science of the brain. New tools and new theoretical approaches have resulted in new insights into how humans get around in the world and understand themselves. But this new science has its roots in broadly philosophical investigations of the mind going back to the classic thinkers from the beginning of modernity. In this conference, we will juxtapose contemporary scientists working on the brain with historians of philosophy and science working on classic figures like Descartes, Hobbes, Locke and Cudworth, among others, to see how the new can illuminate the old, and the old the new.
