    Democracy and Technology. Europe in Tension from the 19th to the 21st century

    Public debate, social media demonstrations, participative assessment, technocracy and transparency: these are just some of the issues on the growing list of multiple and evolving interactions between technology and democracy in Europe since the middle of the 19th Century. The sixth Tensions of Europe conference aims historicizing and exploring these complicated links in long-term perspective. It will address key contemporary issues such as the democratization of technology and the vulnerabilities of technological democracies. The conference will close the ANR funded project « Large technical networks and democracy: innovations, practices and interested parties in long-term perspective, from 1880 to the present day ». The conference will also feature the official presentation of the Making Europe book series, more than 40 panels, and of course the traditional untraditional Tensions events – this time in Parisian style!

    The Grenada war in its European context

    La guerre de Grenade, qui conduit à la reddition de la capitale nasride en janvier 1492, constitue l’un des épisodes les plus importants de la confrontation entre chrétienté et islam à la fin du Moyen Âge. Une bibliographie très abondante lui a donc été consacrée mais l’intérêt pour le conflit s’est surtout manifesté parmi les chercheurs espagnols et portugais. En conséquence, l’approche dominante de la guerre de Grenade est de type horizontal : elle est étudiée comme la dernière étape d’une longue confrontation que certains se refusent désormais à appeler Reconquête. La rencontre qui se tiendra à Grenade les 9 et 10 mai 2013 visera à promouvoir une lecture verticale – c’est-à-dire synchronique – de l’événement.
