    2020 world conference of public history

    Since 2011, International Federation for Public History (IFP)H has been dedicated to building an international and multi-lingual community of public historians working both outside and inside academia. The main role of the Federation is to foster the development of Public History worldwide, creating and coordinating networks and national associations for public history, promoting teaching, research, theoretical inquiry, and other activities that engage the public with the past, history and individual and collective memories. Berlin, which has been called the “Rome of contemporary history,” is an ideal location for a major meeting of public historians from across the globe. Like few other places in the world it offers many different layers of history, that not only still matter and are controversial locally or regionally, but nationally and even internationally.

How isintersectionality defined and operationalized in such research? What language is being developed to articulate intersectionality? What discourses are being constructed regarding intersectionality in current social movements? How is intersectionality defined by current social movements? What are the convergences and differences between the academic debate and the frameworks used by social movements? Authors are encouraged to include an historical and transnational dimension in their research, analyzing discourses on intersectionality in different national contexts, and among diverse social movements.

    Conference, symposium - History

    W. E. B. Du Bois, Scholar, Activist and Passeur between America, Europe and Africa

    Foundations, Circulations and Legacies

    Trained in Classical languages (Latin and Greek), Philosophy, Sociology and History, both in the US and Europe, W. E. B. Du Bois’s intellectual inquiry into the nature of Blackness covers a wide range of disciplines, from History to Political Philosophy, from Sociology to Literature and Poetry, from Art Criticism to Musicology. The colloquium will embrace this multiplicity of approaches which characterizes Du Bois’s work and, at the same time, capture the profound unity of his thought which can be found in the analysis of the “concept of race.” Special attention will also be given to the determinant role played by W. E. B. Du Bois in the transatlantic circulation of knowledge and intellectual commerce between the US, Europe and Africa.

     

    Each of the seven sessions of the colloquium will be dedicated to the study of one dimension of the “concept of race” in Du Bois’s prolific and protean body of work:

     

    Session 1 W. E. B. Du Bois and the Struggle for Justice: Anticolonialism - Pan-Africanism – Civil Rights

    Session 2 “The Color Line” and Visual Arts

    Session 3 “The Concept of Race” in Philosophy and Literature

    Session 4 Sociology and the Questioning of Race

    Session 5 Anthropology, Philosophy and the Questioning of Race

    Session 6 Black History/ Histories

    Session 7 Jazz and “Double Consciousness”

    Session 8 W. E. B. Du Bois in the 21st Century (Panel discussion 1: Blacks in France and the US: A Comparative Perspective; Panel discussion 2: In and Out: Music between Worlds)

    Ancient religion in rural settlements

    XVIII International ARYS Conference

    This conference aims to deconstruct the ideas of rural religion as mechanically reproducing urban rituals and religious hierarchies and of the rural world as a space of cultural and religious resilience against urbanity. Rural areas represented an arena for very situational processes of negotiation between, on the one hand, administrative patterns and related social configurations, and, on the other hand, processes of social conformance to the very characteristics of a local specific rural environment, of adaptation to its peculiar habitus and religious customs, possibly involving gods whose competences directly mirrored a geophysical environment made of mountains, rivers, woods, etc.

    Collective Memory-Work

    From the outset Collective Memory-Work was intended to be an emancipatory method with a consciously open form. Over three decades the method has been successfully used in academic research in a variety of fields. It has been adapted and adjusted according to purposes of the applications, institutional frameworks, organisational necessities and methodological considerations, leading to further developments of the method. Narrative transformation, collective autoethnographic memory-work, mind-scripting, collective biography are some of the terms that reflect these developments. The symposium is meant to: foster an exchange about the use of CMW (its timeliness, its variations, the potential fields of application, its value in teaching, learning, research, social activism); create an opportunity to build networks for cooperation and knowledge exchange across geographical and disciplinary boundaries ; build bridges for an increased transfer of CMW into non-academic areas.

    European and global responses to the concept of “literary engagement” between 1945 and 1968

    ACLA 2020 panel

    The question of “engagement” (or commitment) became one of the defining elements of post-WWII literature and was, for a long period, at the center of the discussions about the relationship between aesthetics and politics in several European countries. Commonly associated with the name of Jean-Paul Sartre, the success of the notion of “committed literature,” however, went well beyond the French national space. This panel focuses on the transnational circulation of the concept of “committed literature” and, more broadly, on the circulation of related notions, such as writers’ “responsibility,” as well as on any type of counter-discourse or counter-theory targeting “committed literature.”  We would like to explore the different degrees of transnational propagation and dissemination of these debates both in regions that absorbed the intellectual debates taking place in France and in the case of countries which remained more impermeable to them.

    3rd Urban Audiovisual Festival

    Scientific audio-visual production, not very considered by many disciplines, finds in the UAF a privileged scenario, both for the presentation of works and for the evaluation of the audio-visual methods applied to the study of the urban. Likewise, the UAF invites its screens to unconventional productions, made with mobile devices or exploring other forms of production of moving images. The use of new techniques is another of the main objectives of the UAF, as it aims to make known the innovations made and their multiple applications to the study of contemporary cities. The UAF is an invitation to watch the cities. To join to a debate far beyond the screens.

    Halal as a Way of Life

    Circulation and Transformation of Islamic Noramtivity in Muslim and Non-Muslim World

    Nowadays, the Islamic market is prospering on the global scale, in particular, in Asia where the hub of its dynamism takes place in the South East-Asian countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, or Singapore. As the term Halal means originally what is “permitted” or “licit” according to the Islamic prescriptions, this notion penetrates in the consumers’ daily life, and we have observed the emergence of a wide range of the the Shariah-compliant products and services,such as food, finance, tourism, transportation, fashion, cosmetics, sport, well-being, education and so on. Halal, to be understood as one of today’s most significant Islamic normativity, orients consumers’ interpretation on “Islamic way oflife.” It has also come to shape the Islamic market as the notion circulates in the globalized public sphere.

    Quantum Social Theory: The Future of Sociology?

    In sociology, without explicit basis on quantum theory, numerous streams established strong similarities with it, setting at the forefront of their paradigm: the subjectivity of the observer, the continuous adjustment between the object and the observer, the impossibility to be fully deterministic or discussions about an objective reality. In this session, we invite panellists to discuss the links that can be drawn between quantum theory and sociology. We welcome both empirical (qualitative or quantitative) as well as theoretical papers. Depending on the variety and the quality of the papers, a publication will be considered to set the basis of this emerging theoretical stream.

    Merleau-Ponty and Technology

    “Chiasmi International” n° 22, 2020

    The question of technology is not often directly addressed by Merleau-Ponty and is rarelythematized as such. The philosopher does not explicitly elaborate what today we would define as aphilosophy of technology or a theory of techniques. And yet, this issue often appears in thebackground of his analysis and sometimes it even constitutes the pivot of his questioning of themutual implication of the sense and the sensible, nature and culture.

    Reflexes, reflections

    “Chiasmi International” n° 22, 2020

    The same etymological root gives us, surprisingly enough, two very different concepts, those of reflex and of reflection, that is the most immediate performance of a living being, and the very figure of mediation, the figure within which our link to the most intimate tends to fall in an endless labyrinth, to lose the way in an infinite game of mirrors. The same happens with the ancient and persisting image of the mirror itself, which suggests an immediate proximity, a form of knowledge which is absolutely close, and at the same time a fundamental distance which involves the whole variety of enigmas, illusions, suggestions, tricks, traps, metaphores, and inventions.
