    Conference, symposium - Political studies

    From Antiquity to politicaly modernism - what mediations?

    Le rôle fondamental des références antiques dans la pensée politique moderne, du XVIe au XVIIIe siècle, est largement reconnu. Ce colloque entend l'aborder non comme un acquis, mais comme une construction élaborée à travers de multiples filtres dont la place reste bien souvent à déterminer. L'usage politique de l'Antiquité connaît des variations considérables selon le type de sources envisagées (textuelles, visuelles, matérielles) et l'optique dans laquelle elles sont abordées. Nous tenterons d'éclairer le rôle capital que jouent les différentes médiations possibles, techniques et culturelles, qu'il s'agisse des éditions, des traductions, des citations, des emprunts explicites ou non, par lesquelles la politique de l'âge classique prend connaissance de l'histoire et de la pensée antiques.

    Conference, symposium - Early modern

    Sedition and revolt in modern european political thought

    We wish to bring together international contributors once more in a discussion of the political thought brought about by various uprisings between the end of the Middle Ages and the modern era, whether it be reflections over a particular event, or more general considerations over the causes of sedition and protest movements, the means to prevent or suppress new episodes, and their adverse – or regenerative – effects. This analysis will focus on political writings composed for government use or for a wider audience – memoirs and reports, as well as treatises on the statecraft that proliferated throughout Europe in the modern era and saw wide acceptance. There is a tendency in the current literature to make use of historical examples that are distant in time and place, and a need to consider the possible repercussions of theoretical reflection from experience drawn from recent or contemporary revolts.
