    Communisms and political dissent

    The idea of communism and the great hope brought by the Russian revolution of 1917 marked, as a utopia and as political praxis, the contemporary social thought and the International Workers' Movement, between heated quarrels and endless controversies, sowing dissensions, verbal wars, profound sectarianisms and irreconcilable divergencies. Distinct societal models, organisational conceptions and political cultures have developed like different branches of a common trunk, becoming autonomous and crystallising.

    IdeAs journal n°14

    Issue no. 14 of IdeAs. Idées d’Amériques (September-October 2019) will focus on “Populisms in the Americas”. This issue’s main purpose is to help identify the criteria according to which populism can be defined, through examples from North and South America, at a time when populism has become a key notion when analyzing political and social evolutions of most American and European countries. We receive article proposals about all North and Latin American countries, written in French, English,  Spanish or Portuguese.

    Power and media, media power Insights on the Americas

    Insights on the Americas

    For its 11th issue, RITA proposes to interrogate the links between power and media in the Americas. Several areas of debate can be suggested, although they should not be considered as exclusive. Articles making a critical analysis of official media as well as opposition media, in varied historical and geographical contexts, will of course be welcome. Other articles may deal with the treatment of popular movements by the media. Critical reflections on the relationship between media and economic power are also encouraged. The Thema section can also include analysis of the current diversification of information media by focusing, for instance, on the emergence of “alternative” media on the Internet, or on the power of fake news over the construction of collective representations.

    Refolution: old and new paradigms

    Highlighting the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation allows us to recollect a cultural, intellectual and political revolution that sprang from it. It is indisputable that the Reform gave rise to one of the most decisive events in European history and the world at large, having thoroughly influenced the theological, historical, mental and political perceptions of western culture.

    Europe and the Cold War – Changes and Disruptions

    5th Annual Meeting “Europe and the World”

    Au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, l’Europe est en pleine décadence. Au cours de cette période difficile, la confrontation entre les deux Europes ne cesse de s’accroître. Face à l’expansionnisme soviétique, les pays d’Europe occidentale se tournent vers les États-Unis qui leurs octroient de l’aide économique et de la protection militaire. La reconstruction de l’Europe fait alors l’objet de débats houleux. Sous la pression des mouvements européanistes, les débats prennent de l’élan surtout à partir de 1948 dans le but de rebâtir l’Europe et la paix en Europe. L’atmosphère de « Guerre froide » est très présente depuis 1946.

    Identity, memory and history

    The concepts of identity and memory have achieved great relevance in the current historiographical debate. The contemporary societies are in constant self-reflection, debating the process of its own constitution based upon the identification of its elements of unity or of differentiation. History has played an important role in this process, between the recognition of their complexity and the will to establish individual and identifiable groups.

    Les droites latino-américaines pendant la guerre froide (1959–1989) : l’autre révolution ?

    Les Cahiers des Amériques latines

    Les Cahiers des Amériques latines, journal ot the Institut des hautes études sur l’Amérique latine (université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3) invites social scientists to deepen this exploration of the Latin American Right Wings during the Cold War (1959-1989). Assuming that we can not understand them without inscribing their temporality and historicity in the Cold War, we will ask us if there is a new political generation emerging in the 60’s and if this generation is connected to the neo-conservative revolution of Ronald Reagan and Margareth Thatcher in the 80’s. This issue, to be published in the fall of 2015, will focuse on the circulation of ideas and theories, actors and practices, symbols and subjectivities of political parties and political leaders, but also of social, economic and cultural actors. It will favor empirically based articles with a comparative reading of Latin American Rights or with a connected history approach within the Euro-American space.

    Knowledges, Sciences, Techniques and State building in Iberian America, 1790-1870

    Over the last few decades the renewal of the history of the sciences has been marked by an opening towards non-European spaces, especially the Iberian Americas, and by the study of the relations between knowledges and power. We now have at our disposal a growing body of work on the imperial sciences, the contribution of the colonies to the advancement of knowledge, more particularly the natural sciences, and on the Enlightenment and the links between sciences, revolutions and independence in the colonial territories. However it is the opposite hypothesis that we seek to explore, highlighting both the modalities by which the legacy of the imperial, colonial Enlightenment was passed on and transformed, and the processes which meant that late 19th century Ibero-American societies, including Brazil and the Spanish colonies in the Caribbean, were ready to take full advantage of the new scientistic paradigm with a rapidity that ought to strike us as surprising.

    Thinking rights in Latin America in the 20th century

    This conference purports to think about the right-wing in twentieth-century Latin America. We shall seek to discover whether the current Latin American right-wing movements are merely the prolongation of XIXth century conservatism, or if a series of events might explain the emergence of new actors in the XXth century. This will enable us to enquire into which geographical scale - national or continental - is relevant when examining this concept. We expect papers from scholars in various social sciences, based on monographic and comparative historical examples. Our purpose is to historicize the concept and the object.
