    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.

    What do we see, what do we hear in Ken Loach's Kes (1969)?

    The conference on Kes is, to begin with, an opportunity to look at and listen to what is registered in this remarkable film by Ken Loach, made fifty years ago. To the question “What do we see, what do we hear in Kes?”, the answers should not be anachronistic. The intention is to take in, from a variety of angles and approaches, what is shown and made audible here: a community of women, men, children, their lives woven into, both propped up and confined by, the institutional nexus of component places, home, workplace, school, public house, and component times, early morning, Friday night. What animates Ken Loach’s picture of a mining community are the tensions evident in the sights and sounds through which the modest story of Billy Casper is conveyed, a story affording access to the lives of people as they play out, in occasional and sometimes irreversible conflict with other lives.

    Sociable Spaces in the Long Eighteenth Century from Present-Day Perspectives: Europe and its Imperial Worlds

    Approches historiques et perspectives actuelles

    Ce colloque international et transdisciplinaire est sponsorisé par l’Union européenne dans le cadre du projet DIGITENS H2020 (H2020-MSCA-RISE 2018) et a pour objectif de s’interroger sur l’évolution des espaces de sociabilité du long dix-huitième siècle et sur leur persistance à travers les époques. L’analyse de l’interaction entre la sociabilité et l’espace ainsi que des modes de construction des espaces de sociabilité de l’époque moderne à l’époque contemporaine/actuelle permettra une relecture de l’histoire des sociétés européennes et impériales. Cette approche fournira un prisme original et diachronique, permettant une meilleure compréhension de leur héritage, dans la mesure où la sociabilité a contribué à donner un cadre aux interactions sociales des temps modernes et à redéfinir l’organisation spatiale des siècles à venir.

    “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere!”

    Féminisme, multiculturalisme et luttes contre les intégrismes religieux

    Si l’origine exacte de l’expression « good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere! » est incertaine, tantôt attribuée à l’actrice et scénariste américaine Mae West tantôt à la rédactrice en chef du magazine Cosmopolitan, Helen Gurvey Brown, elle a été reprise comme slogan par les féministes qui dénoncent la double norme sexuelle imposée aux femmes par les religions. Aujourd’hui quels que soient les intégrismes religieux (catholique, protestant, islamique, juif, hindouiste, bouddhiste, orthodoxe, etc.) ils partagent tous la volonté de maîtriser le corps et la sexualité des femmes dont l’existence aurait, selon eux, pour but unique la maternité.

    Importance of Minority Issues and Construction of Identity in the UK

    Socio-Political Discourses in Art as a Tool and Framework for Institutions

    Les présentations des participants inviteront à réfléchir à l’intersection entre l’intégration des minorités au sein de la société britannique sous le prisme de l’art, qu’ils soient populaires ou impulsés par les pouvoirs publics et à nous interroger sur l’analyse filmique des minorités en compagnie de spécialistes tels que Rosalind Galt et Karl Schoonover. Nous nous efforcerons de comprendre dans quelle mesure la culture et les arts peuvent servir un processus social d’intégration et d’inclusion des minorités, ou au contraire essentialisent les différences de l’autre. Les propositions pourront éventuellement s’intéresser aux dimensions culturelles, socio-économiques et politiques de cette intersection complexe.

    Medieval Conceptions and Practices of Space

    Revue « Études Médiévales Anglaises »

    Though space is by no means a medieval concept (in 14th century use, the word referred primarily to time, or to an interval between two objects, rather than to the abstract idea of an extended area that can be filled or crossed), the concept in its complexity has over the last decades gained considerable critical importance in medieval studies. Medievalists have always paid attention to spatial questions, namely in the shape of inquiries into the location of national or religious communities, into medieval practices of pilgrimages, processions and travels, or into the symbolic associations of various places (the forest, the garden, the castle…).
