    The Roll in Western Europe in the Late Middle Ages

    Rolls were used in all aspects of medieval society. Key areas in which rolls were utilized include administration, genealogies, poetry, liturgy and heraldry. Despite the significance of the roll as a form for medieval writing culture, it has not received as much attention in respect to its significance. The international conference The Roll in Western Europe in the Late Middle Ages focuses on the materiality and the praxeology of late medieval rolls (1200 – 1500), particularly in England and France. The presentations deal with questions regarding the purpose and function of the rolls, the advantages and disadvantages of the roll form and why it was preferred for certain texts over other forms, such as the codex.

    Peacemaking and the Restraint of Violence in Medieval Europe (1100-1300)

    Practices, Actors and Behaviour

    In high medieval Europe, conflict took a number of different forms, from large-scale battles, such as disputes over crowns, power and lands, to more local disputes over inheritance and property. In the absence of well-developed administrative structures which could limit conflict, cultural conventions, rituals and behavioural norms evolved to moderate violence within the elite community.

    Citizenship and freedom in the English-speaking world from the 17th century to the early 19th century

    La « citoyenneté », la participation aux affaires de la communauté, qu’elle soit formelle ou informelle, s’est manifestée à travers divers modes, mais aussi à travers l’usage de différents termes identifiant les « citoyens ». Nous examinerons les divers modes d’exercice de la citoyenneté dans une perspective interdisciplinaire et comparatiste, qu’elle soit juridique, socio-politique ou anthropologique, et nous amorcerons une réflexion autour de la qualité de « citoyen » pendant ces périodes : qui était considéré comme citoyen et qui ne l’était pas ? Comment la dialectique « inclusion-exclusion » des groupes minorisés dans la communauté politique, comme les femmes, les Amérindiens, les travailleurs sous contrat, les Africains-Américains, les esclaves ou nouveaux libres, et les catholiques, s’est-elle construite, et comment fut-elle transférée d’une aire géographique à l’autre ?

    Energy from tides past, present and future

    Pourquoi un pays sujet aux marées devrait-il choisir entre énergie potentielle et cinétique ? La présence des deux au sein d'un mix énergétique ne serait-elle pas préférable ? Aménagements particuliers, traitement de l'interface terre-mer à travers des enjeux liés à l'architecture, au paysage, à l'aménagement ou aux usages sur les littoraux, approches historiques, archéologiques, patrimoniales, géographiques, environnementales, juridiques, prospectives ou encore technologiques seront les axes développés au sein du colloque.

    Women in the public space, 1800-1939

    Great Britain, Ireland, Empire and Commonwealth

    “The Angel in the House” is the image most commonly retained of British women in the nineteenth century. This reductive and repressive ideal, emerging from values propagated by the literary, religious, medical political discourses of the time, still persists today in the collective unconscious. Although this model has increasingly been questioned by researchers in the humanities, the focus has tended to be on the beginning of the 20th century. This one-day conference aims to pursue this still neglected area, bringing the Victorian and Edwardian woman further out of her “cloister” or “sphere”, and exploring the destinies of those women who occupied the public space in Great Britain, Ireland and, by extension, the Empire: activists, explorers, artists, writers and sportswomen to name but a few.

    Epistemological Issues of Research on Medieval Britain and Brittany in History, Language and Literature

    Depuis une cinquantaine d’années, le champ d’étude des Bretagnes médiévales a suscité des approches et des questionnements à la fois divergents et renouvelés. Ces changements aboutissent aujourd’hui à une situation contrastée, où de nombreux domaines du savoir paraissent en chantier, pour ne pas dire comme un champ de bataille où il semble difficile de réconcilier les résultats apparemment opposés obtenus suivant des démarches différentes. Dans quelle mesure et de quelle manière la culture populaire et l’oralité ont-elles par exemple été traitées et intégrées à ce champ de recherche ? Comment s’est-on interrogé, peut-on encore s’interroger, avec quels présupposés et dans quelle perspective, sur les origines de la légende arthurienne ou des vies de saints ? La sociolinguistique peut-elle contribuer à renouveler l’approche des langues médiévales ? Dans le domaine de l’archéologie, comment les résultats des fouilles ont-ils été analysés et interprétés et quel usage en est il fait aujourd’hui ?

    Comparative histories - France and Great Britain in the 18th century

    New historiographical approaches

    Cette journée d'étude portera sur l’histoire transnationale des relations et échanges franco-britanniques au XVIIIe siècle. Nous aborderons les thèmes des échanges culturels, intellectuels, politiques et économiques entre la France et la Grande-Bretagne, dans le but de dresser un bilan des nouvelles approches historiographiques, tout en tentant de contribuer à l’élargissement de ce champ florissant de recherches. L’atelier sera transnational en pratique aussi : il réunira en effet des spécialistes d’Amérique du Nord et de la Grande Bretagne, ainsi que des historiens français.

    Changing the world - urban experimentation in the United Kingdom (19th-21st centuries)

    Le Royaume-Uni offre depuis longtemps un terreau fertile pour les utopies et expérimentations urbaines. De Utopia de Thomas More en 1516 aux New Towns des années 1950 et 1960 en passant par News from Nowhere de William Morris en 1890, la société britannique a fourni l’inspiration à nombre de visionnaires critiques de la société contemporaine afin de formuler des projets sociétaux autres. Cette journée d'études s’intéressera aux projets mis en œuvre en milieu urbain depuis le XIXe siècle pour transformer celui-ci et parfois, au-delà, la société britannique dans son ensemble.

    Genealogical rationality and social status in the Enlightenment

    La généalogie est un puissant idiome de hiérarchisation sociale dans l'Europe d'Ancien Régime et garde son efficace bien au delà des transformations sociales portées par l'âge des Lumières. On s'interrogera dès lors sur les transformations qu'a subies, dans l’espace temporel qui va de Fénelon à Kant, cette forme particulière de connaissance qu’est la raison généalogique, ainsi que les usages qu’en faisaient les différents acteurs sociaux.

    Society, culture, community in the United Kingdom (1970-79)

    This two-day conference focusing on British society of the 1970s seeks to enlarge and to alter perspectives on the period. The intention is to examine the dynamic of contradiction, inventiveness and tensions that is at work. The intention of the conference-organizers is to circumvent and thus question any “teleological” or linear reading of the period in terms of the necessary “coming of Thatcherism” in the United Kingdom, where the politics and culture of the period are read as so many symptoms or omens of the 1979 election result. The aim is to focus on the plurality of conflicting possibilities evident in the period, and therefore on the contingency of outcomes.

    Art and the Environment in Britain 1700-today

    Whether one thinks of environment as context, setting, climate change, green spaces or sounds, today’s epistemology invites us to rethink man’s relation to the external world to the extent that the “inside” and “outside” coalesce, nature and culture merge, man and animal are reconfigured. How have British artists responded to these shifting perceptions of the world around them, of this great swirling circle of life and non life in which they found – or imagined – themselves diversely positioned, for a long time at the centre, then in a more undefined place – at the margin even? How has art itself positioned itself in this newly defined environment?

    Copyright and the Circulation of Knowledge

    Industry Practices and Public Interests in Great Britain from the 18th Century to the Present

    New combinations of technology, culture, and business practice are transforming relationships among authors, publishers, and audiences in many fields of knowledge, including journalism, science research, and academia. Self-publishing, open-access, open source, creative commons, crowd sourcing and copy left: these are a few of the key words associated with recent changes in how knowledge is produced and circulated. While being celebrated for their potential to democratize knowledge, many of these changes have been accompanied by heated debates on such questions as the appropriate role of experts and ‘gatekeepers’; how to ensure that such projects are both trustworthy and economically viable; and how best to balance the interests of authors, publishers, and the general public. Copyright is often at the centre of these discussions.

Ce sont en effet leurs troupes qui s’affrontent principalement le 1er juillet 1916, véritable point de bascule de la guerre pour la Grande-Bretagne et son empire.

    Mother Figures and Representations of Motherhood in English-speaking Societies

    This conference aims to question the various ways in which motherhood is judged, how political choices are translated into cultural representations of mothers as either icons or scapegoats, and how these representations are received and challenged in a quest for either conformity or agency.

    Irland and France in the age of the "Atlantic Republic"

    As Ireland commemorates the Centenary of the 1916 Rising and the Proclamation of the Irish Republic (Easter Monday, 24 April 1916), and as this defining landmark event comes more than 15 years after the Bicentenary of the 1798 Rebellion, it is both relevant and necessary to interrogate anew the defining links between Revolutionary France and Ireland forged during the pivotal decade of the 1790s. This re-appraisal is all the more timely given the new research perspectives which have emerged in the three decades since the publication of Marianne Elliot's seminal Partners in Revolution (1982) and the Bicentenary of the French Revolution.
