    Radical Americas Symposium 2015

    The aim of the event is to bring a range of disciplinary and geographical perspectives to bear on radicalism throughout the Americas. Our definition of radicalism is a broad one, encompassing both political radicalism as an object of study, and radical analytical approaches to the societies and cultures of the Americas. We welcome proposals that deal with any aspect of radicalism, from the democratic and republican radicalisms of the nineteenth century; to the socialist, anarchist, communist, and populist radicalisms of the twentieth century; as well as contemporary identity politics, social movements, and twenty-first century radicalisms.

    Ambiances & Atmospheres in Translation

    Many authors, from the second half of the nineteenth century onwards, have struggled to implement a sensitive approach to urban modernity. How to be attentive to changes in the urban world and the minute variations of the ordinary? From the aesthetic thought of Simmel to Goffman’s ecological approach, the philosophies of everydayness in anthropology, from Laplantine to Kracauer and White, to Wittgenstein, Bégout, and Rancière, work has described, translated and called into question the role of ambiance and atmosphere in the construction of urban life. Coalescing around notions of ambiance or atmosphere, notable research trajectories have interlaced disciplinary concerns within urban studies, cultural geography, sociology and architecture, especially in relation to interconnected concepts such as affect, place, aura, and ecology. Rarely, however, have these trajectories actually met or collided.

    Ambiance and Atmosphere in Translation

    After "Ambience and Urban Practices", and "Ambience and Criticism", this third meeting of the Agence Nationale de la Recherche funded project "Enigmas of contemporary urban mobility”, organized within the framework of the International Ambiances Network, will develop a conversation between ambiance, atmosphere and translation. But how to translate? If translation is understood as a practice of "linguistic hospitality", as an experience of transition and mediation, what form might translation take? How might, in other words, the transition occur between the "daily" word and the word of the "expert", between that of the "living" and that of the "foreign"? How to make shareable experiences beyond the singularity expressed in different languages and cultures? What media or combination of media could help us achieve this?

    Rails and urban development. A Comparative Approach between France and the United Kingdom

    In many countries, the challenges of sustainable urban development along with preoccupations about energy costs, are leading developers and urban planners to place rail transport at the centre of their concerns. During 2012 members of the French and British Planning Studies Group based at the University of Liverpool and University of Paris 1-Sorbonne have been collaborating on hosting two seminars dedicated to the theme of rail transport and urban development. The intention has been to bring together academics with practitioners and also incorporate visits to view rail investments ‘on the ground’. The first event took place in Paris in May 2012 and addressed light rail development in Europe with a particular focus on the situation in the UK and France. The second seminar will take place in Liverpool on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 November 2012 and consider heavy rail as a means of serving urban development in metropolitan areas.

    Public Disorder: Post-World War II European Art and Its Publics

    AAH 2009 : Intersections (April 2-4, 2009)

    Following the end of WWII, artists across Europe, both east and west, sought to re-imagine the identity of the public. The internationalist utopia of the historical avant-garde had not come to pass, the populism of the national socialist model had been discredited by Fascism and Nazism, and it was yet unclear what shape the burgeoning commercial public would take in either soviet block or western nations.
