    Obama’s Legacy

    Tensions and Reconfigurations After the Presidential Elections

    S’inscrivant dans le sillage de la présidentielle de novembre 2016, ce colloque international, rassemblant historiens, politistes et sociologues, réunira sur trois jours des chercheurs français, européens et américains pour leur donner l’occasion de réfléchir ensemble à la présidence Obama. L’objectif premier de ce colloque international sera de tenter un premier bilan de la présidence Obama, notamment en la replaçant dans une perspective historique plus large incluant les grandes vagues de réformes qui l’ont précédée. Il s’agira donc de mettre à profit le caractère pluridisciplinaire pour mener un questionnement plus global sur la place de la présidence Obama dans l’histoire politique longue.

    The Price of Peace: Modernising the Ancien Régime?

    Europe 1815-1848

    In many historiographic traditions, the so-called "Restoration" has been depicted as an awkward interval between the Napoleonic Wars and the age of nationalism. This international conference has the ambition of breaking down old myths and stereotypes about the ‘Restoration’ in order to think more broadly and openly about the key transitions and issues. The conference will revolve around the provocative historiographical issue of whether the post-Napoleonic order represented an attempt to reconcile the heritage of the Ancien Régime with a deeply transformed world. Topics explored by panels of invited experts from across Europe will include Rethinking the "Restoration", New departures in international relations, Constitutions vs. Charters, Rebirth of composite monarchies, Before and Beyond the Nation, Historicising the Ancien Régime?, New borders and old identities.

    The Institutions of the Habsburg Low Countries (XVI-XVIII c.)

    IX Conference of Spanish, Belgian and Dutch historians. In honour of Professor Hugo de Schepper

    This conference intends to continue the tradition of the Hispanic-Dutch-Belgian meetings and will bring together a number of established and early-career researchers working in the field of the institutional history of the Habsburg Low Countries from the 16th to the 18th centuries. It aims to draw attention to a broad range of political, cultural, religious, legal, and military institutions by focusing on the enriching approaches that have shaped historical research on institutional history in the past few decades. At the same time, it hopes to bring into the limelight some exciting new (and often interdisciplinary) perspectives that characterize current research in the field.

    Secrets of State - information analysis in France (17th-21st centuries) - recent research and new perspectives

    Recherches récentes et nouvelles perspectives

    Lors d’une exposition tenue à Paris, les Archives nationales ont présenté au public un ensemble considérable de pièces d’archives (textes réglementaires, dépêches secrètes, relevés de surveillance, lettres d’espions, messages codés, transcriptions d'écoutes, organigrammes de services, etc.), de machines de chiffrage ou d’instruments d’espionnage qui ont révélé l’action secrète de l’État depuis la fin de l’Ancien Régime. Ce colloque s’attache, quant à lui, à faire le bilan d’une décennie d’avancées historiographiques de la recherche française. Comment faire l’histoire d’une activité protégée par le secret ? Quelles voies et quelles méthodes les historiens ont- ils empruntées ? Des administrations du secret aux missions de renseignement et de guerre clandestine, quels nouveaux contours tracent les études françaises sur le renseignement, du XVIIe au XXe siècle ? Dans une perspective comparative, quelles innovations apportent les études françaises face aux Intelligence Studies ?

    Order in War. Gendarmeries and Police facing WWI

    During the First World War, as peacetime economies were transformed into war-focused production systems, European law- enforcement agencies had to adapt to new conditions. The wartime reorganizations of police forces need to be understood comparatively. The First World War set a series of similar requirements in all European countries at war and, to some extent, in some neutral countries also. This conference aims to open new perspectives rather than bringing full and final responses. This is a particularly broad, complex and new historiographic field: the history of law enforcement institutions in Europe in a specific context - specifically total war, the kind of conflict that significantly fostered forms of disorder. We will focus particularly on the diversity of forces, from military to civil police, posted or not on the front line, in belligerent or neutral countries, in metropoles or empires.

    Theological Foundations of Modern Constitutional Theory: 16th-17th Centuries

    Fondements théologiques de la théorie constitutionnelle moderne : XVIe-XVIIe siècles

    This conference aims to assemble different studies laying bridges between modern constitutional theories and theology from the perspective of intellectual history. Though modernity of law and politics has been usually accounted in the context of Reformation, the paper-givers’ approaches to the question will not be restricted in any confessional perspective, Protestant or Catholic. For, whatever the word ‘theology’ may have connoted in the time of religious confrontations, theoretical attempts to legitimize human rights and political authority at those days can be regarded as part of the general current of philosophical investigations, in a new manner and with different foci than ever, into the concept of justice with reference to that of God.
