    Mobilizing Voters in the United States and the United Kingdom: political strategies from parties and grassroots organizations (1867 – 2017)

    Following two different and yet complementary approaches (one from the top down with parties and the other from the bottom up with grassroots organizations), we propose to compare how potential voters have been appealed to, through the use of different strategies and tools of communication”. Whether it be organizations or parties, it will be interesting to analyze how these groups either (re)connect citizens with politics or give birth to social movements which durably occupy the political landscape of the United States and the United Kingdom. Common features may be observed along with distinct approaches particularly adapted to the specificity of each country concerned.

    (Re)Mobilizing voters

    Electoral strategies and practices in the English-speaking world (1867-2017)

    Cette journée d’étude, qui s’inscrit dans le cadre du projet transversal « Politique, discours et innovation » de l'Institut des langues et cultures d'Europe, Amériques, Afrique, Asie et Australie (ILCEA4), sera le premier volet d’une réflexion visant à confronter les stratégies et pratiques électorales dans le cadre d’une mobilisation initiale ou d’une remobilisation d’électorats dans une perspective tout d’abord « descendante », qui s’attachera aux efforts des partis politiques pour conquérir de nouveaux électeurs ou reconquérir des électeurs démobilisés ou perdus à d’autres partis, puis « ascendante » - impliquant cette fois la base, les mouvements populaires sur le terrain, du type grassroots en anglais.

    Christianity, language contact, language change

    The present workshop addresses questions of language contact and language change, as well as language standardization in the Christian context both in Europe and in the New World (Americas, Africa) through a study of diachronic and synchronic corpora. Special attention is paid, on the one hand, to the role of translation as a sight of language contact, and on the other hand, to register variation as an indicator of differential propagation of innovations appeared in Christian context.

    Conference, symposium - Early modern

    Race and Class in Britain and America, 17th-19th centuries

    This conference will question how developing discourses of race came to structure the societies of Britain and America in the early modern period. It hopes to explore the way discourses of race and class interacted with each other, and how the vocabulary of social strata overlapped with the language of race. How were the bodies and minds of the upper ranks considered to differ from those of other people during these periods? How important indeed was the idea of the physical body in rank distinction, and how did this square with the notions of pure blood that underpinned both “race” and hereditary privilege? In what ways were some groups “naturally” privileged or “naturally” excluded? Were social minorities like indigents or women marginalized or stigmatized similarly to Africans or Native Americans?

    Abortion in the British Isles, France and North America (Canada, USA), 19th-21st centuries

    L’année 2018 marque le cinquantenaire de l’entrée en vigueur en Grande-Bretagne de la Loi relative à l’interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG) le 27 avril 1968 (adoptée en 1967), l’anniversaire des 45 ans, aux États-Unis, de l’arrêt de la Cour suprême Roe vs. Wade du 22 janvier 1973, ainsi que le 25e anniversaire de l’arrêt de la Cour suprême du Canada mettant fin à des conditions très restrictives d’IVG (R. v. Morgentaler). Un référendum sur l’abrogation de l’Article 8 de la Constitution de la République d’Irlande sera également organisé en 2018 et pourrait mener à une dépénalisation de l’avortement en Irlande. Par ailleurs, le parlement britannique a décidé en juillet 2017 d’autoriser les femmes en Irlande du Nord (où la Loi relative à l’IVG britannique ne s’applique pas) à procéder à une IVG sur le sol de la Grande-Bretagne et à faire prendre en charge leurs frais médicaux (ce qui n’était pas le cas jusque-là). Un état des lieux sera donc le bienvenu afin d’apprécier en France et à l’échelle internationale (Royaume-Uni, Irlande, Amérique du Nord) l’histoire et l’évolution de l’IVG.

    Dissonance, eclecticism and the fusion of genres in modern and contemporary English-speaking culture

    L’objet de cette journée d’études est d’interroger les possibilités ouvertes par la sociologie culturelle - notamment les concepts d'omnivorisme, d'éclectisme, de dissonance - aux autres disciplines, notamment celles (civilisation, littérature, histoire) traditionnellement attachées à des aires culturelles (anglophone notamment) et plus ouvertes au syncrétisme théorique que la sociologie. La problématique du mélange des genres constitue-elle une approche permettant d’appréhender la culture dans son ensemble ? C’est ce que nous nous proposons de déplier pendant cette journée d’études, en s’attachant à la fois au point de vue des consommateurs, des créateurs et des créations culturelles.

    Race and class in Great Britain and America (17th-19th centuries)

    Les nouvelles populations rencontrées en Afrique et en Amérique suite aux premières découvertes à l’époque moderne, captèrent l’intérêt des naturalistes européens qui cherchèrent à catégoriser l’espèce humaine en différents sous-groupes raciaux ayant des traits biologiques et moraux communs. De cette classification émergea l’idée de supériorité « naturelle » d’un groupe par rapports aux autres, celui de l’élite blanche européenne. Ainsi, les taxonomies raciales qui se développèrent aux XVIIe, XVIIIe et XIXe siècles en Grande-Bretagne et en Amérique étaient et continuent d’être inséparables des questions de classe et de hiérarchisation sociale.

    Citizenship and freedom in the English-speaking world from the 17th century to the early 19th century

    La « citoyenneté », la participation aux affaires de la communauté, qu’elle soit formelle ou informelle, s’est manifestée à travers divers modes, mais aussi à travers l’usage de différents termes identifiant les « citoyens ». Nous examinerons les divers modes d’exercice de la citoyenneté dans une perspective interdisciplinaire et comparatiste, qu’elle soit juridique, socio-politique ou anthropologique, et nous amorcerons une réflexion autour de la qualité de « citoyen » pendant ces périodes : qui était considéré comme citoyen et qui ne l’était pas ? Comment la dialectique « inclusion-exclusion » des groupes minorisés dans la communauté politique, comme les femmes, les Amérindiens, les travailleurs sous contrat, les Africains-Américains, les esclaves ou nouveaux libres, et les catholiques, s’est-elle construite, et comment fut-elle transférée d’une aire géographique à l’autre ?

    “Literary Offenses” and Other Contentious Matter

    This one-day conference will address the subject of controversial or polemical texts such as reviews, essays, letters, prefaces and/or postfaces published between 1800 and 1900 in Britain and the United States. It seeks to open fresh approaches to controversies or polemics by focusing on literature and the literary aspects of these questions. Indeed, if controversy can be defined as a debate between two or more parties with different viewpoints before an audience, studies have mainly come from the fields of social sciences and science studies, with some interest in rhetoric and/or argumentation. However, literary controversies are as important as scientific ones for the constitution of the public, democratic debate as it was shaped in Britain and in the U.S. in the nineteenth century. Controversies and polemics contributed to legitimizing some literary genres; they gave publicity to new or avant-garde authors; they redefined the content and contours of the public debate.

    Music criticism in the Anglophone world

    What are the forms, genres, and styles of music criticism? Who writes music criticism? What role have musicians and composers played (and continue to play) in music criticism? And what is the role of non-musician writers? And how do cultural institutions, such as universities, newspapers, specialized or non-specialized magazines, figure in music criticism, as opposed to non-institutional channels? What does “classical” music criticism and popular music criticism have in common? How, conversely, do they differ? These are some of the questions that will be debated in this international conference, the last in a series of colloquiums that were initiated in 2013 on various aspects of music criticism. Twelve papers—seven in English, five in French—will be presented in the three sessions of this conference, with participants from Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, and the United States.

    Mother Figures and Representations of Motherhood in English-speaking Societies

    This conference aims to question the various ways in which motherhood is judged, how political choices are translated into cultural representations of mothers as either icons or scapegoats, and how these representations are received and challenged in a quest for either conformity or agency.

    Irland and France in the age of the "Atlantic Republic"

    As Ireland commemorates the Centenary of the 1916 Rising and the Proclamation of the Irish Republic (Easter Monday, 24 April 1916), and as this defining landmark event comes more than 15 years after the Bicentenary of the 1798 Rebellion, it is both relevant and necessary to interrogate anew the defining links between Revolutionary France and Ireland forged during the pivotal decade of the 1790s. This re-appraisal is all the more timely given the new research perspectives which have emerged in the three decades since the publication of Marianne Elliot's seminal Partners in Revolution (1982) and the Bicentenary of the French Revolution.
