    Contestations, exiles, transfers, bicephaly...capital cities

    The conference, organized by Centre d’histoire du XIXe siècle and Centre André Chastel, scheduled on June 16th, 17th and 18th 2016 and will be devoted to examining the fate of those capitals that have been temporarily or permanently stripped of their status, alternative or provisional capitals and mobile forms of sovereignty, as well as the endurance of "capitalness", from a historical and history of art point of view. How does a city survive this political and administrative downgrading? What is the cultural impact of the loss of political "capitalness"? What role do historical capitals play in relation to capitals that boast their modernity? How are the transfers structured? How does the diplomatic community follow these changes? How does international recognition influence the persistency, or lack thereof, of "capitalness"?
