    Policing port cities during the colonial era : Tianjin and Shanghai interaction between Western and Oriental police forces, 1860-1945

    Limits of the western police model in China

    In the past 20 years, the Research Center on Shanghai History (ECNU) and the Lyon Institute of East Asian Studies (IAO) have established close cooperative relations : joint projects, joint publications, joints conferences, as well as the co-training of graduate students have become significant and regular markers of increasingly close relationships. On this basis we hope to further co-promote Shanghai and Tianjin as centers of new urban history and social order. This project will avail new archival materials (municipalities archives), memoirs of policemen, photography, illustrated journals, correspondances, police reports etc…

    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.

    History of Science, History of Text (2011-2016)

    In 2015-2016, the seminar "History of Science, History of Text" will keep exploring textual problems related to the ERC Project SAW (“Mathematical Sciences in the Ancient World”) As in previous years, the seminar will address the following issues regarding scientific sources: how textual sources bear witness to the social groups that produced them; how textual sources testify to knowledge; history of compilations; how actors structure their texts and knowledge into parts; how textual sources reflect the material environment in which they were produced In line with the beginning of phase 3 of the project SAW, devoted to facets of the history of the historiography of ancient mathematics, the seminar will pay special attention to the sources attesting to work in the history of mathematics.

    Causes and Connections. On Divination and other Inquiries into Nature and Humans

    International Colloquium in Honor of Professor Geoffrey E. R. Lloyd

    Dans le cadre du PRI « Pratiquer le comparatisme : terrains, textes, artefacts », ce colloque international réunit ethnologues, philologues et philosophes autour des travaux de Geoffrey Lloyd et de leur apport à la pratique du comparatisme. En prenant appui notamment sur son ouvrage Cognitive Variations (2007), nous souhaitons interroger le problème de la coexistence de causalités autour d’un même événement, en mettant en perspective des pratiques rituelles saisies en contexte divinatoire et des savoirs prédictifs constitués en corpus de connaissances.

    Translation History Matters

    1st East and West Conference on Translation Studies

    This conference aims to provide a biannual forum for East and West dialogue on Translation Studies.  This inaugural edition will be dedicated to “Translation History Matters” and welcomes contributions addressing issues related (though not circumscribed) to translation history, historiography and metahistoriography. Centred on translation understood as an intentional phenomenon of human and mostly intercultural communication, this conference aims to focus on the role played by translation in Eastern and Western cultural practices and encounters through history as well as on the role of history to understand both translation and translation studies.  By bringing together Eastern and Western views on a multitude of translation history matters, this conference aims to stress why, how and for which purposes translation history matters.

    Individual itineraries and the circulation of scientific and technical knowledge in East Asia (16th-20th centuries)

    How did individuals' geographical mobility contributed the circutation of  knowledge in East Asia (16th-20th centuries)? In China, Korea and Vietnam, the bureaucratic systems dictated a specific mode of mobility of the elites. But the ways in which individual itineraries shaped the circulation of knowledge need to be studied not only for civil servants, but also for various socio-professional groups, such as the scholars privately employed by high officials, craftsmen, medical doctors, traders, Buddhist monks, and emperors themselves. To these groups should be added the actors of the globalisation of knowledge during this period.

    Seminar - Asia

    History of science, technology and medicine in East Asia

    Ce séminaire se veut un lieu de présentation de leurs travaux en cours par des chercheurs travaillant sur l’histoire des sciences, des techniques et de la médecine en Asie orientale, région où le chinois classique a longtemps été le principal véhicule des savoirs d’élite. Il s’adresse aux chercheurs et étudiants spécialistes de l’Asie ou historiens des sciences, des techniques et de la médecine. Nous nous y intéresserons autant aux savoirs « traditionnels » de la Chine impériale et de ses voisins qu’aux périodes moderne et contemporaine.
