    Schengen: people, borders and mobility

    In the era of globalization, which benefits the implementation of policies of both stimulus or repression for the movement of people, academics have been fostering discussion around topics and concepts related with migration, borders and mobility. This epistemological basis enables us to apprehend the complexity of the European area and invites us to examine the boundaries or lack of it that separate territories. The conference also seeks to analyze the changes in the concepts of border and border control; to understand how residents in the Schengen Area – “native” or immigrants – build their national and transnational identity; to assess the evolution of mobility within the Schengen Area, which in turn allows us to perceive the relations between regions, states and individuals and to explain the various impacts of the Schengen agreements in the territories, people and societies and their border experiences.

    Medicine Anthropology Theory

    MAT – first issue online

    MAT seeks to rethink medicine, medicines, and medical systems in local and global contexts, within the broad fields of medical anthropology, science and technology studies (STS), and global health. In line with our commitment to open access, accepted articles (up to 10,000 words) will be written in clear language that makes insights available to a wide readership. The editors seek to publish work that innovates both theoretically and methodologically, or that revisits classical anthropological theory in thinking through contemporary problems. We also seek work from ‘applied’ anthropologists and activists working in sites outside of academia. Submissions undergo a double-blind peer-review process.

    Knowledge Transfer and Cultural Exchanges

    Censorship in the dynamics of cultural exchanges in early modern times

    This panel is about a technology in the early modern ideological and textual control. It debates upon the censorship corrective procedures. In the framework of reception studies and communication theories, censorship as a whole is both a medium and a source of noise and perturbation of the message. It is considered as an obstacle and a positive element to its development. The phenomena about negotiation between intellectual and material producers of knowledge (works of Raz-Krakotzkin, Jostock) lead to reflect on the interactions between the actors of politics of control. These often vary due to local, chronological, political and religious circumstances. But censorship studies tend to localize the fields of investigation.

    Memoria scientiae 2015: Feeding animals/Eating animals

    Theories, attitudes and cultural representations of nutrition in ancient and medieval world

    According to ancient biological theories, nutrition is, along with reproduction, one of the functions of the soul shared by men, animals and plants. At the same time, however, eating habits are among the starting points on which differences between humans, animals and plants are culturally built. This means that a transversal biological praxis can be used as an anthropological device, in order to to fix and identify specific boundaries and thresholds, either symbolic or theoretical, between both animality and vegetality on the one hand, and zoosphere and  anthroposphere on the other hand.

    Brevity is the soul of wit

    Angles, French Perspectives on the Anglophone World

    For its inaugural issue, Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World welcomes original proposals inspired by the celebrated aphorism: ‘Brevity is the soul of wit’. Often used to describe a literary and social form (humor or sarcasm) or to illustrate commonplaces, the dictum encapsulates beliefs about the relationship between ‘brevity’ and ‘wit’ which have numerous implications in different disciplines and forms of expression. The aphorism not only suggests that brevity is a gateway to revelatory truths, it also implies that true ‘wit’ exists only in shortened form, paradoxically positing depth of meaning (‘soul’) in brevity of form, and also hinting that humor loses its essence when explicated. Additional contradictions emerge when one recalls the context in which the line appears in Hamlet, when Polonius tires the audience by giving some words of wisdom to his departing son.

    Shaping the Brain

    In the Late Middle Ages and Early Modern Period

    The brain has, throughout history, been considered an important achievement in the creation of man, although often secondary to the soul and the heart. Our knowledge about how the brain has been conceived in the past is, however, very fractional, especially for the late Medieval and early modern periods. This conference looks to re-situate the question of knowing the brain anew in a dialogue between medicine (anatomy, physiology and pathology) and natural philosophy (inter alia physics, biology and psychology).

    Montagnes et conflictualité : le conflit, facteur d’adaptations et d’innovations territoriales

    L’objet de ce numéro thématique de la revue Journal of Alpine Research | Revue de Géographie Alpine est d’aborder la montagne sous l’angle de la conflictualité, plus particulièrement dans la relation entre conflit et territoire. Le conflit est envisagé ici dans un sens large, d’opposition et de lutte, armée ou non, qui couvre les aspects politiques, mais aussi les aspects militaires, sociaux et culturels, recoupant les notions de résistances ou de réactions, dans leur capacité à générer de l’innovation. Le contexte montagnard invite à examiner les dimensions territoriales du conflit : que produit cette situation aux échelles locales ? Et en quoi fait-elle intervenir des spécificités morphologiques, des valeurs ou des identités montagnardes ?

    Etty Hillesum. Un siècle après (1914-2014)

    Colloque international

    Les écrits d’Esther (Etty) Hillesum sont pour nous un recueil precieux, constituant une documentation historique très saillante. Ils représentent un reportage au sujet du mal extrême, tel que la persécution raciale et les lagers, ainsi qu’une puissante réflexion philosophique autour de la valeur et du sens de la vie, de l'amour et de la mort. Le Colloque international « Etty hillesum. Cento anni dopo (1914-2014) » (9 et 10 décembre 2014, Université Ca' Foscari de Venise, Italie) veut tracer un bilan de l'œuvre de cet important témoin du XXe siècle.

    Borders Past and Present. Materiality, Practices and Concepts

    In recent years, the study of borders and boundaries has attracted the curiosity of scholars from different disciplines and informed a rich and diverse literature. With notable exceptions, most publications on the subject relate however strictly to their sub-field and discipline, paying only fleeting attention to the work produced in neighbouring disciplines. The aim of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from the European University Institute and other European universities and research institutions who study borders and border-related phenomena from different perspectives.
