    Getting the Houses in Order: agenda-setting, policy-making, and legislating in the House of Lords

    Twenty years after the 1999 Reform Act was passed, this one-day conference will study the evolutions and transformations of the legislative and political abilities of the House of Lords in the British parliamentary system.

    OK Computer, twenty years on

    Radiohead’s musical, cultural, and political legacies

    Following a symposium held at Rennes 2 University last may, further contributions (in English or French) are now sought in order to publish a wide-ranging, peer-reviewed collection of articles appraising OK Computer’s musical, cultural and political legacy twenty years after its release. The aim of this publication is to bring together contributions from scholars who wish to confront Radiohead’s work with their own disciplinary methodologies, including (but not limited to) musicology, sociology, art history, political science, literature, cultural studies or even economics.

    "OK Computer", twenty years on: Radiohead’s musical, cultural, and political legacies

    As a band who has garnered critical and commercial success without forsaking their taste for musical experimentation and subversive, yet poetic, lyrics, Radiohead offer multiple facets to their listeners and to popular music scholars alike. Nevertheless, only a handful of academic studies have, to this day, been devoted their work, including The Music and Art of Radiohead (Tate, 2005).

    Study days - Europe

    Governance and Public Policies in the Contemporary United Kigdom

    Cette journée d’études se propose d’explorer la notion de gouvernance dans un ancrage spatio-temporel précis : le Royaume-Uni de 1997 à 2014. Il s’agira de s’interroger sur l’évolution de la gouvernance dans les politiques publiques britanniques. Nous souhaitons ainsi repenser les transformations de l’action publique et de l’État, notamment dans les secteurs qui ont connu des réformes (santé, logement, éducation, énergie et politique de la ville), face aux impératifs tels que la « dévolution », la pression des dynamiques commerciales internationales, ou encore l’influence croissante de l’Union européenne et d’agences intergouvernementales. La perspective des élections législatives à venir nous invite à dresser un bilan des recherches portant sur la gestion des politiques publiques en civilisation britannique.

    Governance and Public Policies in the Contemporary United Kingdom

    The purpose of this conference is to study the notion of governance in a specific time and space context: the United Kingdom from 1997 to 2014. The evolution of governance in British public policies will be questioned. Participants will be invited to rethink the transformations of public and State action, especially in the sectors that have been reformed (health, housing, education, energy and urban policy), faced with the imperatives of “devolution”, pressure from international trade dynamics, and the growing influence of the European Union and intergovernmental agencies. The forthcoming general elections provide an opportunity to take stock of the research on public policy management in the field of British studies.
