    The Black Metropolis, between past and future

    Race, urban planning and African-American culture in Chicago

    The colloquium will celebrate the centenary of the “Great Migration” and explore the social and cultural life of Chicago South Side and West Side from the end of the Thirties, which were marked by the cultural zenith of Bronzeville neighborhood and a series of measures for the Black community inspired by the New Deal, to the present, which is characterized by numerous private and public initiatives in favor of an urban renewal. This international and multidisciplinary colloquium seeks to reevaluate the contribution of the South Side and the West Side to the definition and evolution of the African-American identity from the beginning of the XXth Century until the contemporary moment.

    Art History for Artists: Interactions Between Scholarly Discourse and Artistic Practice in the 19th Century

    The development of art history as a discipline during the 19th century has been variously associated with the politics of national identity, the needs of a growing bourgeois public in search of cultural capital, or of an expanding art market. However, the role of art training, and art practitioners themselves in the shaping of the discipline remains unexamined. Courses in art history had been systematically introduced in the curricula of art and architecture academies since the late 18th century, and spaces of art education count among the first institutional homes of the discipline, well before the establishment of autonomous university chairs. This conference aims to explore the interactions and productive tensions between art practice and art scholarship in the 19th century.

    Art history for artists: interactions between scholarly discourse and artistic practice in the 19th century

    The conference seeks to examine the shaping of art history as a discipline during the 19th century in relation to artistic training and exchanges between artists and scholars. The development of art history has been associated with an array of socio-political and economic factors such as the formation of a bourgeois public, the politics of national identity and state legitimacy or the needs of an expanding art market. This conference aspires to explore yet another, less studied dimension: the extent to which the historical study of art was also rooted in an intention to inform contemporary artistic production.

    Historians and the Margins: from North America to Former Empires

    En s’intéressant aux « marges », les organisateurs engagent les participants à s’interroger sur les discussions actuelles à propos de l’écriture de l’histoire et ses représentations fictionnelles ou artistiques comme sur les rapports complexes entre histoire professionnelle et mémoires, entre histoire critique et mises en scène muséographiques et commémorations.

    North American Studies in France and Europe

    State of the Art and Future Prospects

    In 1980, François Furet established the first visiting chair in North American studies at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in partnership with the French-American Foundation. Yet, it was not until 1984 and the election of Jean Heffer as permanent full professor that the Center for North American Studies (CENA) came into being. Despite pioneering efforts in some English departments and the creation of the first university chair in North American history at the Sorbonne in 1967, there was significant disparity between the importance of the USA in the contemporary world and the weakness of North American studies in France. Over the last thirty years and under the supervision of Jean Heffer and François Weil, the CENA has become one of the leading institutions for North American scholarship in France and Europe.

    How to make the peripheral "mainstream"

    Recent develpments in the historiography of science

    Ces dernières années, le développement des études sur l’histoire des sciences dans les régions du monde dont on a longtemps considéré qu’elles n’avaient pas contribué de manière significative au développement historique des sciences s’est accompagné d’une réflexion historiographique approfondie. Ce colloque vise à formuler et discuter des propositions pour placer ces travaux et problématiques de recherche vus comme périphériques au centre de l'histoire des sciences.

    Histories of Forgetting in the French- and English-speaking Worlds, 19th-21st centuries

    Ce colloque propose d'examiner le rapport paradoxal entre l’histoire et l'oubli pour explorer, dans une perspective civilisationniste et comparatiste, les lacunes dans la mémoire collective et les épisodes occultés, perdus ou écartés du récit historique : ces « histoires oubliées » susceptibles de définir la communauté nationale, locale ou diasporique tout autant que l'histoire officielle ou les hauts lieux de mémoire. Comment rendre compte de la persistance de certains souvenirs collectifs et des silences qui entourent d'autres ? L’objectif est d’analyser les processus et mécanismes qui conduisent vers la perte du passé, la non-inscription ou transmission de la mémoire communicative, voire sa suppression, et d'étudier les formes de l'oubli afin de sonder leurs enjeux historiographiques et politiques.
