    Conflict management in modern diplomacy (1500-1914)

    The conference, which is organised by the research group “Diplomacy in Conflict”, focuses on conflict management as the constant processes of mediation and negotiation, which included efforts but also resistance, success but also failure. Diplomatic contacts were not only destined to resolve political or military conflicts, but could also be highly conflictual themselves, due to cultural differences, such as incompatible codes or stereotypes. Diplomatic strategies comprised the avoidance and resolution of conflicts as well as their deliberate escalation or provocation. Furthermore, since the end of the 18th century, cultural conflicts became increasingly charged with national connotations.

    Cultural transmission and mentors in sport

    The spread of sport throughout Europe - origins and perspectives

    Si les pratiques physiques donnent l’impression d’une relative homogénéité et d’une stabilité, lorsqu’on les observe de manière diachronique ou sur un temps court, elles sont, aussi, le fruit d’hybridations progressives, de métissages, ou le résultat de la juxtaposition d’éléments venus d’ailleurs. Les sports sont traversés par des formes culturelles plurielles et des influences « étrangères » multiples. Combinés aux invariants contenus dans les techniques du corps, ces apports en forgent l’identité. L’ambition de ce colloque sera de révéler et d’analyser les mécanismes par lesquels les sports et les sociétés se sont mutuellement nourris, principalement dans leur dimension culturelle.

    Architectural, urban and territorial innovation

    City and agriculture seminar

    Le rapprochement des deux champs — ville et agriculture — peut être considéré comme une facette du regard porté sur la relation historique ville/campagne. L’expansion urbaine a largement consommé les espaces agricoles. L’introduction de l’architecture et de l’urbanisme dans ce couple conduit à une première observation. Soit l’architecture se verdit et laisse entendre qu’elle joue la partition de la ville-nature (toits plantés, culture hors-sol, tour verte), qui peut se composer autrement que par la mobilisation du champ de l’agriculture, soit elle contribue par les objets qu’elle génère à rendre très concrètement possible cette agriculture urbaine (par ex. ferme verticale). Il y a là sans doute une première source de questionnement permettant la prise en compte du quatrième terme de l’équation proposée : l’innovation.

    The international recognition of States

    From Antiquity to Modern Times

    International recognition creates legitimacy for the independent existence of new, sovereign political units. On the one hand, it is a re-ordering process; on the other, it functions as a conflict-resolution mechanism within the framework of the international coping practice of crises. As a legal, political and territorial reorganization, it calls into question the various social actors and makes it necessary to mobilize scientific, technical, intellectual and / or symbolic means. The creation of a new, sovereign unity also forces the redistribution of political power and social authority. It can be the trigger of an inter-state war or a civil war, lead to territorial fragmentation, the appearance of an independent nation on the world stage, or the beginning of a long period of peace. This international colloquium seeks to explore the figure of recognition in all its historical complexity and from various points of view.

    Memories and histories of the present in Spain and Latin America (2016-2017)

    Institut d'histoire du temps présent /CNRS/université Paris 8/EHESS seminar

    Nous centrerons notre réflexion sur le « retour de l’événement » tel qu’il apparaît  à travers certaines commémorations (comme les bicentenaires des révolutions d’Indépendance de l’Amérique latine) ou au détour de certains faits marquants de ces dernières décennies. Les populismes, nationalismes et autres mouvements d’idées et pratiques politiques seront abordés à travers le prisme des reconfigurations historiographiques de type académique, mais également des résurgences de l’histoire officielle et des révisionnismes. Les multiples formes du conflit politique, des mouvements sociaux du XXe siècle aux répercussions des grands événements mondiaux seront analysées à l’aune des imaginaires sociaux.

    South Asian Diasporic Cinema: Encounters

    The fourth issue of /DESI/ will focus on the question of encounters in diasporic South Asian cinema: Afghanistan, India, Maldives, Pakistan, Bangladesh Nepal and Sri Lanka. The transformation of this contemporary human condition into filmic material coincides with a turn in the scientific study of diasporas. Forced migrations, which generate a movement of displacement and settlement in home territories, movements of arrivals, caught in a logic of deterritorialization, diasporas – and more particularly South Asian diasporas – are all relocated in transnational and transcultural spaces. Cinema holds a mirror to this experience of movement through this new “ethnoscape” (Appadurai) made up of shifts and disjunctures, free flows and political hurdles, border-crossings and assignment of identity.

    Social Classes in Contemporary Societies

    Issues and Challenges

    This conference, organized by the Center for Studies in Social Change (OSC), calls into question the current concept of “class” in the contemporary social sciences. It will bring together specialists from a wide range of thematics, theoretical and methodological backgrounds. With a broad international lens, the conference will draw on the comparison of various national contexts.We will examine the explanatory power of the different existing theoretical models and their renewal, in several different contexts. The conference will focus specifically on the relationships between changes in the wealth distribution (the soar in high-income, the increased importance of heritage) and contemporary transformations of class boundaries and class relations.

    Conference, symposium - History

    4th annual conference of the International Federation for Public History (IFPH-FIHP)

    The First Conference of the Italian Public History Association in Ravenna will bring together Public Historians from all regions in the Italian Peninsula who will discuss the reasons for a national route to the discipline. Awareness of the importance of Public History practices in Italy has become widespread only a few years ago. Italy felt the need to enhance a reflection and a dialogue among scholars and practitioners in order to define the scientific status of public historians. The Ravenna conference hopes to favour this process by comparing different experiences and disciplinary approaches and to inquire about the state of the discipline at national and international level.

    GREPs second study day

    Si les enquêtes menées par l’industrie du cinéma auprès de ses publics sont des pratiques anciennes et représentent des enjeux de recherche majeurs, elles sont demeurées assez peu investies par le monde universitaire. Cette journée d’étude, qui tâche de tisser un lien entre professionnels et chercheurs, propose de mettre ces sources à l’honneur en questionnant les multiples façons dont l’industrie du cinéma cherche à connaître et comprendre ses publics.
