    Les réseaux des académies d’art au siècle des Lumières : enjeux et dynamiques d'échanges

    This colloquium invites the rethinking of the role of provincial academies in the administration of the arts in the 18th century and in the formulation of ideas about them. Its ambition is to study this aspect of the history of the French regions in the context of a wider history of France and Europe and to do so by harnessing micro-historical and macro-historical methods. To what extent did artistic careers depend on academies for skills and/or reputation? What did art as an epistemological field gain in practice and thought in these places? What role did these institutions hold outside or in close association with academies in capital cities, given their institutional organisations, forms of sociability, and role as conduits for theoretical and practical knowledge? How did they interact with each other and with other geographical areas and other social circles (literary salons, freemason gatherings, and agricultural societies)?

    Black presence in Early Modern France

    Lumières is a journal published by the Presses Universitaires de Bordeaux for the University Bordeaux Montaigne. Its 34th issue, scheduled for June 2020, will focus on Black minorities in France during the Early Modern period. Black studies are far from being a novelty in France, with several in-depth studies already published over the past ten years. Nevertheless, these researches tend to focus always on the same period (the pre-revolutionary years)and the same cities (Paris or Bordeaux). The 34th issue of the Lumières journal aims to provide other points of view and open up research opportunities: therefore, it will put forward new studies in order to show how diverse the experiences of Black people living in France during the Early Modern period were.

    Dying as a revolutionary (18th-20th century)

    Ce projet de colloque international entend étudier l'importance du thème de la mort des révolutionnaires et de ses représentations dans les mythologies révolutionnaires du XVIIIe siècle à nos jours, bien sûr par-delà les frontières nationales. Les approches seront donc volontairement comparatistes et internationales, faisant la part belle aux divers processus d'héroïsation et à la transmission de toute une culture révolutionnaire, dans les récits, les mémoires, les images, etc.
