    In/visible: representation, discourse, practices, “dispositifs”

    Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

    How is the materiality of the visible world inscribed in its cultural representations? What are the more or less visible actors and mechanisms in the genesis of a cultural artefact? Should the visible / invisible binomial be considered as an anthropological constant or as the effect of a certain epistemological constellation? To what extent does visibility coincide with power and, therefore, how should one represent the in/visible? These are just some of the questions that cultural studies, in their innate interdisciplinarity and methodological heterogeneity can formulate with respect to the issue.

    Officers and public issue in and around Anjou (13th-15th centuries). Towards a cultural politics?

    Au sein de l'ensemble des territoires contrôlés par les dynasties angevines, nous proposons d'examiner le personnel chargé des services centraux, la chancellerie, les cours de justice, les chambre des comptes et archives, ou encore le conseil royal ou l'hôtel, tout comme les officiers des cours locales. On s'interrogera sur l'origine, la formation, les réseaux et les carrières de ce personnel, ainsi que sur la genèse institutionnelle de ses offices et charges.

    Thinking the fabric of the city in times of crisis

    Le colloque franco-italien intitulé « Penser la fabrique de la ville en temps de crises » initié par l’UMR CITERES, s’inscrit dans la continuité d’une série de manifestations scientifiques annuelles, regroupant depuis 2008 des chercheurs italiens et français qui confrontent leurs regards autour des débats scientifiques dans le champ de la géographie sociale. La thématique proposée pour l’édition 2014 est issue des questionnements de chercheurs du laboratoire et de leurs partenaires italiens sur la fabrique de la ville dans un contexte où la question de la crise paraît omniprésente dans les discours dominants. Ces journées permettront de saisir comment en Italie et en France les géographes travaillant sur la production et sur les pratiques des espaces urbains intègrent la notion de crise dans leurs travaux. Notre objectif sera donc de mettre en discussion les effets de l’interprétation des contextes et des devenirs des villes en termes de crise urbaine, environnementale, politique ou économique.
