    Global Ethics of Compromise

    What are the normative assumptions and solutions proposed to develop morally right or wrong compromise typologies? Can we develop a universal ethics of compromise or does compromise vary depending on the socio-cultural history of a country? To what extent is culture relevant in shaping types and norms of compromise? The conference aims, firstly, to understand how to distinguish a compromise from a compromise of principles; what constitutes an ethical or fair compromise? Second, it will analyze if practices of compromise vary from one country to another. To do so, different types of compromise will be explored through geopolitical, philosophical, historical approaches, with a particular focus on Japan and Taiwan. This symposium will examine theoretical issues and practices associated with compromise, by adopting a global perspective. It will bring together contributions from European, American and Asian researchers.

    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.

    Sinophone musical worlds and their publics

    China Perspectives / Perspectives Chinoises

    Recent success of Chinese reality television singing competitions broadcasted on national television or streamed directly on the internet, has shown the extent of musical genres represented in the Chinese world, from pop to folk via hip-hop or rock ’n’ roll. The popularity of new musical styles up to then considered as deviant as well as the recent attempts of the State to intervene directly on musical contents, tend to blur the distinctions between “mainstream” (流行) music, “popular” (民间) music as non-official, “underground” (地下) music or even “alternative” (另类) music. This call for papers aims at promoting a better understanding of the transformations of Chinese “musical worlds”, in the sense that Becker gave to “art worlds”, which stresses the role of cooperation and interactions between the different actors of the artistic sphere.

    Feeding death - funerary rituals and alimentary practices in the Alpes and Himalayas

    Les pratiques et les gestes funéraires constituent une prérogative uniquement humaine depuis au moins 100.000, datation attribuée par les archéologues aux sépultures de Skhül (Mugharet es-Skhül), en Moyen Orient, les plus anciens exemples de sépulture volontaire de l’espèce des Homo Sapiens. Les récentes découvertes archéologiques des équipes dirigées par Aldenderfer et Eng (2016) dans le Upper Mustang (Népal) ont mis en évidence des aperçus inédits de l’histoire des populations himalayennes de haute altitude et de leurs rituels de la mort. Ce colloque permettra aussi d’aborder des aspects secondaires inhérents les rituels funéraires tels que certaines pratiques alimentaires spécifiques, appelées à jouer un rôle précis sur le plan social et symbolique.

    An historical panorama of nuclear dissuasion from 1945 to the present day

    Dans un monde dont une partie importante renforce la place dévolue à l’arme nucléaire (en Russie ou en Asie par exemple), et où par ailleurs l’Europe a largement perdu sa grammaire dans ce domaine, il est utile de jeter un regard historique sur un certain nombre de débats et d’événements à caractère nucléaire de l’époque contemporaine, et d’éclairer ainsi sous cet angle les questions de politique internationale et de sécurité actuelles. L’objectif de ce séminaire est d’aborder l’histoire de la dissuasion nucléaire dans ses dimensions stratégiques, militaires, politiques et administratives, et d’offrir un panorama général de l’histoire de la dissuasion nucléaire, de 1945 à nos jours.

    A global history of free ports

    Capitalism, commerce and geopolotics (1600-1900)

    Exactly how free ports arose in early-modern Europe is still subject to debate. Livorno, Genoa and other Italian cities became famous as major examples of a particular way of attracting trade. Between the late eighteenth and the nineteenth century the existence of free ports – as specific fiscal, cultural, political and economic entities with different local functions and characteristics – developed from an Italian and European into a global phenomenon. While a general history of free ports – from their first emergence to the present-day special economic zones – has never been written, this research network aims to pave the way for such an enterprise. The history of free ports research network is organising a number of conferences in the next years, in order to work towards a standard publication and interactive research platform for the history of free ports from the XVIth to the early XXth century.

    Rejuvenating politics? Student politics and the history of youth’s political selves in South Asia

    UW Madison conference (October 2018)

    By drawing attention to the historical formation of both master narratives and counter claims developed by educated youth in the postcolonial period, the panel explores the relevance of campus spaces in the fashioning of political selves. After partition, many scholars regretted that students’ ‘movement’ had given way to sporadic, dispersed ‘agitations’, focused primarily on campus issues. Instead of dismissing group-based demands as ‘parochial’, or looking at students’ dispersion as a problem, this panel proposes to explore the myriad ways in which student politics supported, challenged or re-interpreted mainstream understandings of South Asian societies.
