    Student movements and (post-)colonial emancipations

    Transnational itineraries, dialogues and programmes

    This one-day conference investigates the role of student movements in individual and collective emancipations, from the struggle for colonial liberation to the challenges posed by contemporary globalisation. This conference seeks to bring these various approaches together, in order to discuss the transnational and connected history of student engagements in colonial liberations and the critical reflection on the multilateral management of conflicts in the postcolonial period. It will investigate internal and external tensions, and the reorganisation of these movements in relation to pacifism, revolutionary struggle, conflict prevention and peace making.

    ERASMUS+ Jean Monnet Action

    The Resources on the European socio-economic model (RESuME) project, co-funded by the Erasmus+Jean Monnet Action for Institutions and the University of Luxembourg, aims to contribute to the study of the European socio-economic model, its origins, current characteristics and future development. The project focuses on the interaction between society, economic players and public authorities, through the prism of the notion of European competitiveness. It draws on the disciplines of contemporary history, law, economics, political science, political philosophy and sociology. To shed further light on this subject, the RESuME project is creating an innovative new series of scholarly contributions: the ‘State, Society, Market and Europe’ Research Papers (RESuME Papers).

    Traces and Memories of Slavery in the Atlantic World

    Dans Cultural Trauma: Slavery and the Formation of African American Identity (2001), Ron Eyerman explore la formation de l'identité africaine-américaine à travers le traumatisme culturel de l'esclavage. Au-delà de son impact direct sur celles et ceux qui ont subi l'esclavage, Eyerman considère qu'en tant que processus culturel, le traumatisme est « transmis par l'intermédiaire de diverses formes de représentation et associé à la formation d'une identité et à la construction d'une mémoire collectives ». Cette conférence internationale cherche à examiner les fondements, les mécanismes et l'étendue de ces processus mémoriels.

    The geometry of medieval images

    On le sait (le sait-on ?), une image, au Moyen-Âge, n’est pas composée selon les règles de la perspective. C’est à la compréhension d’un autre modèle géométrique, sur lequel s’appuyèrent les images médiévales, et qui disparut au cours du XVIe siècle, que ce colloque sera consacré. Pour quelles raisons ? Les images médiévales ont-elles quelque rapport avec la géométrie ? N’est-ce pas la plus mauvaise manière de parler d’elles, qui s’entêtent à ne pas respecter des règles simples de proportion, qui sont parfois incapables de tracer deux lignes parallèles, et qui souvent n’essaient même pas d’esquisser un paysage un tant soi peu cohérent ? Plutôt que de penser les termes « géométrie » et « espace » d’une manière toujours défaillante par rapport aux images médiévales, nous voudrions les maintenir, quitte à redéfinir ce qu’on appelle, au Moyen Age, une géométrie, un espace ; et une image ?

    Urban cosmopolitanisms: Methodological and theoretical issues

    This worshop seeks to investigate cosmopolitanism through an urban lens. It aims to provide a situated approach to cosmopolitanism, using the analytical framework of urban and social theory alongside social geography and building upon empirical research. Our purpose is to frame a grounded theory of urban cosmopolitanism that would take the paradigms and empirical findings of various social sciences into account. Our interest lies in a cosmopolitanism of encounters incarnated in contacts, mobilities and cultural consumption and the spatial dimension of the social and power relations that are at stake in cosmopolitan encounters. We shall focus on cities as sites, but also actors in processes of cosmopolitanisation.

    Trajectories of October 1917: Origins, reverberations and models of revolution

    Around the overarching theme of October 1917, we are seeking to foster dialogue between historians of 1917 who can make new contributions to the interpretation and analysis of that revolutionary movement in the Russian Empire, and scholars working on other areas and on later periods who also deal with 1917 in their analysis and interpretation of revolutionary movements. To bring all of this research together, we are holding a conference, from 19 to 21 October 2017, in which scholars from various disciplines and specialists of different areas are invited to participate.

    Beyond the Periphery: Unpacking African Agency in Global Politics

    Au-delà de la Périphérie – l’Afrique dans les Relations Globales : actions, influence(s) et défis

    Organisé en partenariat avec l'Université du Cap (Afrique su Sud) et le Département des relations internationales de la London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), ce colloque international vise à explorer comment les acteurs étatiques, sub-étatiques et non-étatiques africains s'adaptent au changement du/dans le système international. Favorisant largement des perspectives africaines, l'objectif est d’interroger, d’analyser et d'évaluer les capacités et les répertoires d’action individuels et collectifs de même que les modes opératoires de ces acteurs à des niveaux et échelles multiples afin d'aller au-delà des idées pré-conçues sur le manque de capacités d'action et de passivité des acteurs africains dans les relations internationales. À travers le concept « d’agence » (agency), ce colloque analysera comment les acteurs africains s'approprient et participent à produire le « global » et à mieux s'insérer dans l’espace mondial. Ce colloque est également motivé par un besoin de partager les recherches en cours sur l’Afrique dans les relations internationales et de favoriser les échanges entre universitaires et institutions africains et non-africains.

    Le 'Regole' di Fortunio a cinquecento anni dalla prima stampa

    Le cinq-centenaire de la publication des Regole grammaticali della volgar lingua de Giovanni Francesco Fortunio (1516) est l’occasion de revenir sur la première grammaire imprimée de l’italien, antérieure même aux Prose della volgar lingua de Pietro Bembo (1525). Un colloque international, qui sera organisé à l’université de Liège le 2 décembre 2016, réunira les meilleurs spécialistes de l’histoire de la grammaire et de la langue italiennes. Le but poursuivi est celui d’une réflexion commune sur le processus qui conduisit, au Cinquecento, à la constitution d’une norme grammaticale, lentement mais progressivement acceptée par tous les écrivains de la péninsule.

    Walruses, Whales and Narwhals

    Maritime Ivories in Western Europe, 900-1500

    In the history of carved ivories, maritime mammals have often been eclipsed by the elephant, considered as a nobler ivory to which walrus or whale ivory would only be a poor man's substitute. But this historiographical view is not without its shortcomings, as not only did walrus hunting play a significant role in the first European explorations toward the west, but the trade for those ivories went as far as the Islamic world and even the Far East. This session at the 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies, sponsored by the National Museum of Scotland, aims to address the variety of questions posed by the maritime ivories: how the raw material was collected, how it was traded, the workshops that carved them and their specific symbolic value in medieval treasuries

    Economic challenge and new maritime risks management: what blue growth?

    5th International Human Sea - Marisk Symposium

    New energies to forage at sea, deeper drillings further and further from the coast, increasingly bigger ships, these are the challenges that man must overcome to accomplish “blue growth”. There are economic opportunities to grab, but also new risks concerning safety and security, and marine environmental protection. These new challenges will be at the heart of the 5th edition of the Human Sea – Marisk symposium, a major event bringing together the best international experts and taking into account the latest scientific and technological advances in the maritime and port sector.

    Challenges of Cultural Diversity in Europe and the Arab World

    The era of globalization arises numerous challenges to accept plurality, differences and management of cultural diversity, especially, with the return of the ingredient of culture to the field of political action in a context in which culture has a central role in the post Cold War world. Globalization has tried to widespread certain values, practices and cultural expressions, whereas in numerous Arab and Western countries, refuge has been sought in cultural singularity and identity. Therefore, cultural factors have had their impact in the design of national, regional and international policies.

    Music, Cultural Heritage And Law

    Special Issue

    Music is a space of possibilities, a realm of cross-cultural events where interpretation is deeply rooted in history and societal evolution. The main complexity is to analyze the coded meaning and view how the same signs, notions and concepts are appropriated, translated, rehistorized and read anew in songs, be they pop songs or national anthems.

    Decolonizing Americas

    Radical Americas Symposium 2016

    The theme of this year’s Radical Americas symposium is “Decolonizing Americas”, acknowledging the long arc of struggle for freedom since the period of European colonization of the Western Hemisphere in the 15th century. Our collaborative effort will be to consider how histories within the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean converge and depart in relation to the experience of anti-colonial and decolonizing social movements, many of which continue today. We will also consider the ways that cultural efforts, collectives, art, and intellectual projects shape radical imaginaries of freedom.

    Who is in - who is out? The categories of tourism and migration and the dynamics of socio-political inclusion and exclusion

    The main theme of this meeting will be to place anthropology front and center in the face of emergent contemporary conflicts, dilemmas, and possibilities. And our panel will explore the following questions: How do politically and socially constructed categories such as migration and tourism affect the mobility of people and what strategies are employed by persons to deal with, and challenge, these competing definitions of travel? How does the nation-state interfere with peoples’ habits of travel? What are the experiences of persons with travel categories and how is the interplay with other categories such as nationality, gender, ethnicity, age, or sexuality?
