    Jewish Perceptions of the Revolutionary Transition (1789-1814)

    World Congress of Jewish Studies

    We are putting together a proposal for one session at the World Congress of Jewish Studies focused on Jewish perceptions of the revolutionary period in Europe (1789-1814). Our goal is to generate a discussion about Jewish responses to the French revolutionary transition and emancipatory paradigm in the European broader context, as we believe that Jewish sympathies and resistances should be reconsidered from a multidisciplinary perspective involving political as well as cultural, religious, social and economic issues.

    New contribution to Geoarchaeology

    Word archaeological congress 8

    Geoarchaeology, defined as the application of geosciences and geographical methods to prehistory, archaeology, and history, is now widely applied to study key subjects such as occupation patterns, territory and site exploitation, palaeoclimatic, palaeoenvironemental, and palaeogeographical changes, as well as anthropogenic impacts and system responses. The multidisciplinary and multiscalar dimensions of geoarchaeological approaches have encouraged continuous development and innovation of methods and approaches that have opened new possibilities for explorations in geographical sectors previously inaccessible, the development of large-scale data acquisitions and treatment, and also the development of microscopic scale analysis precision. This session will highlight global research in geoarchaeology with particular emphasis on innovative methods or cutting edge research using established approaches.

    New Academic and Scientific Migrations in the South

    The aim of the conference is to explore new international academic patterns. During the last two decades, countries in the South (Asia and the MENA region) have developed their higher education systems and scientific capacity and have become attractors for students and scientists from both the North and the South, presenting a challenge to the traditional "brain drain". In order to better understand those new phenomena, we are looking for contributions exploring empirical case studies about those new migrations.

    Tourism, heritage and globalization

    International Geographical Congress 2016

    The relationship between heritage and tourism has essentially been analyzed as a “defensive” one. Even if the economic contribution of tourism is considered necessary to insure the conservation of heritage sites and objects, tourism is at the same time suspected to be invasive, destructive and dangerous for the sites’ “authenticity”. This session aims at understanding the processes through which tourism (seen as a system of places, stakeholders/actors, public, practices and imaginaries) becomes a major “heritage producing machine” and identifying what these new production are.

    Can regions understand each other?

    Europe and Asia: challenges and crisis-management

    Further to the first Europe-Asia conferences exploring regional regime dynamics (France, 2004), policies of regional cooperation (Korea, 2005), interregional competition (France, 2012) and the limits of regional constructions (Kazakhstan, 2014), this 2016 edition will look at the reciprocal understanding of regions and how that is conducive to their capacity (or lack thereof) to monitor crises they undergo, both specific crises and interregional ones. Papers must address original research, in regional dynamics of Asia and Europe, since the end of the cold war and focus on one area among.
