    Cultural encounters in the nineteenth century

    The exhibition The Dutch in Paris, which was on show in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam and in the Petit Palais, Paris during the fall of 2017 and spring of 2018 respectively, aimed to visualize the artistic exchange between Dutch and French artists between 1789 and 1914. As part of a larger research project, set up by the RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History, the exhibition generated so much response that ESNA, in collaboration with the RKD and NWO, decided to organize an international conference on the subject, focusing specifically on international as well as national and local points of encounter and how they facilitated artistic exchange.

    The Many Lives of Europe's Audiovisual Heritage Online

    During the past decade, a massive body of European audiovisual heritage has become accessible online: on video sharing sites and websites of archives, or through initiatives such as EUscreen.eu and Europeana.eu. Once online, audiovisual heritage circulates in diverse ways: users watch, share, like, or dislike it; they comment, appropriate, and download videos for remix and recirculation. It thus becomes part of the popular consumption of history, potentially creating new interpretations of heritage materials, challenging authorised perspectives. Heritage institutions perceive the consequences of the recent technological transformations of the sector as a major challenge and opportunity.

    Counter-revolution and the making of conservatism(s)

    Transnationalism and the circulation of conservative ideas from the mid-17th century to the First World War

    With the rise to prominence of conservative ideologies across the Western World, studying the genesis of “anti-modern” European traditions has gained new urgency. The conference aims to sketch of a typology of modern conservative thinking based on the notions of dialogue and circulation between European intellectual centres and their peripheries, Enlightenment philosophy and conservative thinkers, and the various actors involved in the process. It will further discuss the long-term transformation of conservative ideas and rhetoric through the lense of transnational connections, against nation-centric studies of conservatism in which supra-national exchanges are often hidden by structural discourses.

    Post-doctorate researcher in Coinage in Ancient Greece

    Anchoring Work Package 4

    The use of minted coins was one of the major innovations in the ancient world of the first millennium BCE. Invented in Lydia in the seventh century, coinage spread rapidly throughout the Greek world, first in the Greek cities in Asia Minor, next to Aegina and Athens and soon to the other cities across the Aegean and Mediterranean area. Before the introduction of minted coins, exchange was largely based on weights of precious metals, in smaller amounts weighed on scales, a practice to which striking fixed weights of metal seems just a small and logical step. Yet the swift success of coinage, evidenced by rapidly increasing number of Greek poleis adopting the new medium, shows that the potential of coins to surpass weighed bullion in practical use for all kinds of transactions was recognised early on.

    Post-doctorate researcher in "Roman women: legal changes and finances"

    Anchoring Work Package 4

    The transition from republican to imperial rule is one of the main turning points in the history of the ancient world, which had profound consequences for the lives of Roman men and women. As the first emperor, Augustus anchored his multiple political innovations by presenting them as the restoration of the Roman Republic. As part of this restoration programme he posed as the restorer of traditional Roman moral values, issuing legislation to stimulate marriages within the elite and to curb adultery (the Leges Juliae de maritandis ordinibus and de adulteriis coercendis). The ius trium liberorum, which was part of this legislation, gave women sui iuris with three or more children full legal capacity over their property, thus paving the way for women’s civic engagement and public visibility, for instance as benefactresses in numerous cities of Italy and the provinces.

    Government by Expertise: Technocrats and Technocracy in Western Europe, 1914-1973

    Technocracy is the political swearword of our times. From the multiple crises of the European Union to the recent elections in the United States, the role of experts in public governance is often invoked as one of the main sources for the political ills of contemporary society, responsible for the exacerbation of social inequalities, the decline in the acceptance of political institutions, and the rise of populist movements. This conference will look at the genealogy of technocracy and the trajectories of various groups of “experts” in western Europe’s mid-20th century.

    The Institutions of the Habsburg Low Countries (XVI-XVIII c.)

    IX Conference of Spanish, Belgian and Dutch historians. In honour of Professor Hugo de Schepper

    This conference intends to continue the tradition of the Hispanic-Dutch-Belgian meetings and will bring together a number of established and early-career researchers working in the field of the institutional history of the Habsburg Low Countries from the 16th to the 18th centuries. It aims to draw attention to a broad range of political, cultural, religious, legal, and military institutions by focusing on the enriching approaches that have shaped historical research on institutional history in the past few decades. At the same time, it hopes to bring into the limelight some exciting new (and often interdisciplinary) perspectives that characterize current research in the field.

    Representing the Urban Underbelly in the Nineteenth Century

    In conjunction with the exhibitions Easy Virtue: Prostitution in French Art, 1850-1910 (Van Gogh Museum) and Breitner: Girl in Kimono (Rijksmuseum), ESNA (European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art) organizes its annual two-day international conference around the topic of the “urban underbelly” and its depiction in nineteenth-century art. Both exhibitions explore the depiction of women in the margins of urban life – the prostitute, the model, working (class) women, and the women of the entertainment industry.

    Moving borders: exploring Francophone originality in practices, theories and languages of public organisation

    Francophone seminar of the Groupe européen d'administration publique (GEAP)

    The French-Speaking Seminar (F2S) provides a unique opportunity for debates in French within European Group of Public Administration’s annual congress. While open to English contributions, it confirms our wider community’s interest for a linguistic space that provides alternative vocabulary, patterns of thought, scientific approaches and norms, and political-administrative cultures. As a group, the seminar listens closely to the issues and needs of the practitioners of public management, and is dedicated to its scientific mission of knowledge renewal and enhancement. Hence, we invite researchers and confirmed practitioners to dialogue across scientific sessions, round tables, and a variety of professional accounts from the field.

    Denim on stage

    University meets industry at Denim City in Amsterdam

    The aim of this one-day conference is to explore the evolution of denim from its origins in the French town of Nîmes, through the American invention of the modern blue jeans, to the contemporary global manufacturing and marketing of denim and jeans. Blue denim jeans are the most worn garments in the world. Even though denim is often perceived as a symbol of American culture, the denim fabric originated in Europe and has a long history. Yet it was only when denim trousers were riveted that the first modern pair of jeans were created in the late XIXth century. Since this invention, jeans have made grand transformations from a worker’s garment, through a uniform of non-conformity and youth protest, to an item of fashion design. Recently, the Netherlands has become an international marketing cluster for the global denim industry.

    Friend or Foe: Art and the Market in the Nineteenth Century

    The attitudes towards art dealers in the nineteenth century are rather diverse. The aim of this conference is to bring together case studies from a wide variety of (inter)national, chronological and artistic contexts which critically examine both the (alleged) impact of nineteenth-century art dealers on the art world and the sites of resistance towards this impact.

    Towards a New History of World War II?

    The history of WWII has been being written for the last 70 years. Witnesses, historians, actors, writers and many others have constructed our representation of the event. How will the WWII historiography evolve in Belgium and the Netherlands? How should historians interact with memorial politics and new media? Is it still relevant to consider WWII as a separate topic for research? How do digital humanities play a role? The latter are but a small number among the many questions that will be discussed at this international congress.

    Économie(s) de la collection naturaliste au XVIIIe siècle

    XIVe congrès international d’étude du XVIIIe siècle (ISECS), Section 7 / panel 4

    Au cours du XVIIIe siècle, l’étude de l’histoire naturelle connaît un essor considérable et devient une mode sociale et culturelle, dont la collection de spécimens des trois règnes se fait l’indispensable corollaire. Véritable dispositif de savoir, le cabinet se présente comme un espace de reproduction mimétique du monde naturel, dont il donne à voir et à lire, sur le mode de l’abrégé, la complexité de l’ordre naturel ainsi que ses beautés. Mais l’engouement concerne également des dispositifs de collection plus spécifiques, et de taille plus modeste comme, par exemple, l’herbier. Notre séance se propose de questionner les différentes formes de l’économie de la collection naturaliste au XVIIIe siècle. Il sera donc question d’interroger la circulation, l’échange et de la consommation d’objets d’histoire naturelle dans une perspective intellectuelle, sociale, monétaire et symbolique.

    Crisis, Idea and Policy Transformation

    Experts and Expertise in European International Organizations, 1973-1987

    Crisis and crisis experience were central to Western European history between the first oil crisis of 1973 and the creation of the Single European Act. European international organizations (IOs) such as the OECD or the EC played a crucial role in debating and addressing manifold dimensions of crisis, shifting discourses and transforming policies at national and European level. These IOs drew heavily on experts and their expertise in debating and managing crisis and seeking solutions for structural problems. Organized jointly by the University of Portsmouth and Maastricht University on 30-31 January 2014, the workshop will investigate who were the experts active within IOs and what type or form of expertise they had and draw upon in agenda-setting, policy deliberation and decision-making. It will also discuss the role of experts in policy-making in the respective IOs and their influence on the development of the policy area concerned.
