    Conference, symposium - History

    Religions and Politics in Europe's Orients (14th-20th c.)

    The goal of this conference is to explore a number of aspects of the relationship between the religious phenomenon and politics through the historical framework of political developments in what progressively will become, through interaction, the Orients of Europe, i.e. Eastern and Southeastern Europe as well as the Eastern Mediterranean, an area so unorthodox and difficult to examine in terms of essentialist definitions. It is no accident that Samuel Huntington believed that what we call the ‘Orthodox East’ does not form a part of the West, but rather a sui generis encounter between Christianity and Islam at the borders of Europe. This theoretical scheme is not overturned by drawing the borders of Europe a little further to the East, as many believe, but by historicizing the issue of the relationship between religion and politics in the given geographical region through the comparative prism of what was occurring during the same period in Western Europe.

    Conference, symposium - Modern

    Theatre after 1989 in East Central Europe

    L’année 1989 a marqué un tournant dans l’histoire de l’Europe médiane. Vingt années après la chute du mur de Berlin, le Centre d’études tchèques de l’ULB a choisi de s’interroger sur l’après 1989 et de focaliser sa réflexion sur les arts de la scène. La visée de ce colloque est de désarticuler l’année 1989 pour mettre en exergue les points de convergence et de divergence du théâtre centre européen contemporain toutes générations confondues, et de tenter de cerner les nouveaux traits par lesquels il se définit. Les intervenants sont tant des historiens et des théâtrologues que des artistes de la scène.

    Conference, symposium - History

    L'Europe centrale au seuil de la modernité. Mutations sociales, religieuses et culturelles

    Autriche, Bohème, Hongrie et Pologne, fin du XIVe siècle – milieu du XVIe siècle

    Ce colloque réunissant des chercheurs français et surtout étrangers s'efforce d'éclairer le moment décisif dans l'histoire de l'Europe centrale et orientale que constitue la fin du Moyen Âge et le début de l'époque moderne. Alors qu' elle semblait sur le point de « rattraper » ses modèles, elle se singularisa par des choix qui contribuèrent à la maintenir en marge de l'Europe pendant des siècles. Ce colloque s'intéresse exclusivement aux aspects sociaux, religieux et culturels. Les faits politiques et diplomatiques pourront faire l'objet d'un second colloque s'inscrivant dans le même cadre chronologique et géographique.
