    Cultural networks in the Renaissance: methodological challenges

    This session of the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference 2016 (Bruges, Belgium – 18-20 August 2016) focuses on the study of cultural networks in the Renaissance and the methodological issues that accompany it. Rather than only focusing on the outcome of research on cultural networks in the Renaissance, this session aims (also) to address explicitly the methodological issues that historians deal with while conducting this type of research.

    All the Beauty of the World. The European Market for non-European Artefacts (18th-20th century)

    In the wake of the Western expansion, a fast growing number of non-European artefacts entered the European market. They initially made their way into princely cabinets of curiosities. Enabled by the forced opening and exploitation of more and more parts of the world and pushed by social and technological changes of the time, the 18th century brought a boom of the market of non-European artefacts in Europe. This came along with the emergence of a broader collecting culture and the development of a rich museumscape. This market and its development in terms of methods and places of exchange and monetary and ideological value of the objects are in the focus of an international symposium that will take place in October 2016 in Berlin.

    The Smaller European Powers and China in the Cold War, 1949-1989

    This international conference aims to examine the policies of the smaller European powers towards China – and vice versa – during the Cold War. Thereby it focuses, on the European side, on both Western and Eastern Europe – regardless of whether a country was part of the NATO or the Warsaw Pact. Meanwhile, on the Chinese side, the conference proposes to include both Chinas, namely the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (RoC). While this should allow for the analysis of different relational constellations, the chronological framework – that ranges from the Communist victory in China in 1949 to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Tiananmen Square uprising in 1989 – should enable us to identify policy shifts and patterns.

    Censorship: Creative contemporary constraints and dynamics in the representation of the British and American nations

    This 2016 workshop on contemporary US-UK photography will take on the notion of censorship. With photography as its starting point, this edition aims to extend the debate to include the contemporary image on the whole. It is interested in the intermedial forays of other artistic forms in the practice of photographers (art installations, video and/or audio productions, performance, urban art practices, text/image interactions). How does the very artistic form/medium become in itself a means of expression and commitment when confronted with censorship, a means to create unity against censorship, a tool for identity expression of a group or of a minority, to circumvent constraints, or thrive upon these limits and generate creative impetus from them?

    Conflict management in modern diplomacy (1500-1914)

    The conference, which is organised by the research group “Diplomacy in Conflict”, focuses on conflict management as the constant processes of mediation and negotiation, which included efforts but also resistance, success but also failure. Diplomatic contacts were not only destined to resolve political or military conflicts, but could also be highly conflictual themselves, due to cultural differences, such as incompatible codes or stereotypes. Diplomatic strategies comprised the avoidance and resolution of conflicts as well as their deliberate escalation or provocation. Furthermore, since the end of the 18th century, cultural conflicts became increasingly charged with national connotations.

    The international recognition of States

    From Antiquity to Modern Times

    International recognition creates legitimacy for the independent existence of new, sovereign political units. On the one hand, it is a re-ordering process; on the other, it functions as a conflict-resolution mechanism within the framework of the international coping practice of crises. As a legal, political and territorial reorganization, it calls into question the various social actors and makes it necessary to mobilize scientific, technical, intellectual and / or symbolic means. The creation of a new, sovereign unity also forces the redistribution of political power and social authority. It can be the trigger of an inter-state war or a civil war, lead to territorial fragmentation, the appearance of an independent nation on the world stage, or the beginning of a long period of peace. This international colloquium seeks to explore the figure of recognition in all its historical complexity and from various points of view.

    South Asian Diasporic Cinema: Encounters

    The fourth issue of /DESI/ will focus on the question of encounters in diasporic South Asian cinema: Afghanistan, India, Maldives, Pakistan, Bangladesh Nepal and Sri Lanka. The transformation of this contemporary human condition into filmic material coincides with a turn in the scientific study of diasporas. Forced migrations, which generate a movement of displacement and settlement in home territories, movements of arrivals, caught in a logic of deterritorialization, diasporas – and more particularly South Asian diasporas – are all relocated in transnational and transcultural spaces. Cinema holds a mirror to this experience of movement through this new “ethnoscape” (Appadurai) made up of shifts and disjunctures, free flows and political hurdles, border-crossings and assignment of identity.

    4th annual conference of the International Federation for Public History (IFPH-FIHP)

    The First Conference of the Italian Public History Association in Ravenna will bring together Public Historians from all regions in the Italian Peninsula who will discuss the reasons for a national route to the discipline. Awareness of the importance of Public History practices in Italy has become widespread only a few years ago. Italy felt the need to enhance a reflection and a dialogue among scholars and practitioners in order to define the scientific status of public historians. The Ravenna conference hopes to favour this process by comparing different experiences and disciplinary approaches and to inquire about the state of the discipline at national and international level.

    The imagined woman in Medieval and Early Modern Europe

    Interdisciplinary perspectives

    With a decidedly interdisciplinary agenda, and focusing on Medieval and Early Modern Europe, this conference investigates the image and imagery of women, as well as the concepts attached to both. In suggesting an approach capable of integrating diverse aspects, its aim is to complement the research so far, which has tended to focus either on historical studies concerning influential female individuals and writers, or on works scrutinizing the literary imagery relating to women.

    (De)constructing Digital History

    dhnord 2017

    The rise of digital history is in general perceived as the phase defined by the democratization of the personal computer technology, network applications and the development of open-source software. However, specific disciplinary objects, sources and approaches continue to be present within the connected use of methods and tools that takes place under the digital humanities big tent. A typology of digital history projects identifies three main fields: academic research, public history, and pedagogy projects, of which the last two categories are considered particularly specific to historians within the digital humanities field. We therefore propose to address digital history through this triple spectrum: academic research, public history, and pedagogy, in order to trace continuities and transformations in history as a discipline; and contribute to explore the broader digital humanities field through this case study.
