    Controversies over Methods in European Union law

    This series of seminars aims at providing an overview of different methods in European Union law, both old and new, both mainstream and not, by putting them in perspective with each other and by questioning their underlying assumptions. In order to do so, participants are expected to engage in a reflexive exercise that will make their methods and their position in the controversy explicit: What methods do they use and what do these methods imply? With whom and against whom do they think European Union law? Do they find it useful to exhume an author that in their view has been unduly neglected or, on the contrary, to call for new approaches to understand EU law?

    Advances in Social Network Analysis in the French-speaking world

    Sunbelt 2022

    Cette session vise à offrir un espace aux chercheurs francophones, issus de différents domaines mais partageant un intérêt commun pour l’analyse de réseaux sociaux, où pourront être présentés des projets en cours ou de récents résultats de recherche. Nous espérons, de cette manière, témoigner du dynamisme actuel de l'analyse des réseaux sociaux dans le monde francophone. Dans cette session interdisciplinaire, tant méthodologique qu’empirique, nous accueillerons des chercheurs qui, soit, appliquent les méthodes des réseaux sociaux, soit s’intéressent au réseau social en tant qu'objet fondamental de recherche.

    Displaying the social history of migrants: content, scenography, public engagement

    This conference addresses issues of display and reception, in a museum context, of social history in general and the social history of migrations in particular. The objective is to identify and discuss practices that can best carry across historical contents and reach a broad audience. What are the most suitable approaches to make visitors understand, feel, and project themselves into, the social life of working-class and migrant families of the past? What are the risks associated with the conception and mediation of migration history contents? How should that history be told in order to convey the diversity and inclusivity of historiographical narratives? In what way can people from working-class and migrant backgrounds be included in the exhibition process itself?

    Maternités et figures maternelles dans les traditions religieuses de l’Asie du sud

    Motherhood and Maternal Figures in the Religious Traditions of South Asia

    This symposium aims at shedding light on the theme of motherhood in the context of South Asian religious traditions, by examining historical and contemporary figures, texts, beliefs, and practices. The proposed contributions will analyze the ways in which motherhood, in its gendered aspects, constitutes a site of negotiation of the relationship with the religious in different traditions, by encouraging a comparative perspective on the relationship between motherhood and religion as well as by considering together a variety of case studies with different disciplinary and methodological approaches.

    Tolkien and Antiquity

    Antiquities of Middle-earth

    This workshop, which will take place on June 4, 2022 in Paris, aims to study the notion of Antiquity(ies) in the work of J. R. R. Tolkien. The event is open to specialists in literature, antiquity or reception of antiquity, insofar as the aim is to reflect on the existence of ancient periods in Tolkien's legends which could present points of convergence with Greco-Roman antiquity in the broad sense, as the author could conceive it in particular.

    Conference, symposium - History

    The Myth of Versailles and European Courts, 17th and 20th centuries

    Ce colloque est organisé dans le cadre du programme « Identités curiales et le mythe de Versailles en Europe : perceptions, adhésions et rejets (XVIIIe-XIXe siècle) » mené par le centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Il a pour objectif d’analyser le modus operandi du mythe de Versailles dans l’Europe monarchique des XVIIIe, XIXe et XXe siècles, en prenant en compte les deux éléments contradictoires mais complémentaires qui caractérisent cette notion : le réel et la reconstruction du réel. L’enjeu sera donc double : cerner comment les différents aspects propres à l’identité de Versailles ont pu nourrir un imaginaire, mais aussi saisir la manière dont cet imaginaire a pu susciter d’autres réalisations – architecturales, rituelles, politiques.

    La cour se met au vert. Mises en valeur et usages politiques des campagnes entre Moyen Âge et pré-modernité

    The Court escapes from Town. The countryside as political asset from the Middle Ages to the early Modern Period

    The idea of heading off to the countryside is associated nowadays with a wish to get away from a stressful, noisy, and at times oppressive and foul-smelling urban environment, to rest in peace and quiet, in healthy surroundings, in close contact with the bounties of the natural world and animals in their “natural” habitat. Far from any anachronistic intent, applying this expression to court studies is a call to scholars to adopt interdisciplinary approaches to examine the many ways in which aristocratic circles related to and interacted with their rural environment.

    Territories and politics of animalities

    Critical animal geographies between domination and resistance

    Animal geographies are part of the social sciences research that question the relationship between humans and other animals. Often qualified as the study of "Human/Animal" relations, these scientific productions have been the object of cleavages since the emergence of theories-practices critical of both the speciesism of these scientific designations, and of a detachment of researchers from social struggles. Within a total liberation framework, Critical Animal Studies integrate animal exploitation with other forms of domination, demonstrating their consubstantiality and interdependence. This call for papers aims to enrich the reflections about and also the gestures carried in the antispeciesist geographies.

    Port governance: power, interests, representations

    Scientific interest in the theme of port governance has arisen with a renewed political interest in the maritime area (but also river) in France in recent years.

    Derrida 2021: Biopolitics and deconstruction

    Derrida propose une lecture-écriture d’Agamben lisant Foucault. La machine textuelle du séminaire est ici complexifiée par ce double mouvement de lecture-commentaire qui nous fait lire Foucault avec les interprétations que son œuvre aura permises. D’une part la réflexion sur la biopolitique comme marque distinctive de l’exercice et des systèmes politiques contemporains ne fait jamais, chez Foucault, référence à Heidegger, d’où elle provient pourtant. D’autre part et surtout, l’annonce apocalyptique de l’avènement du biopolitique n’est pas partagée par Derrida, comme si elle faisait pendant à l’évangile de la fin de l’histoire par Fukuyama, qu’il avait dénoncé à juste titre dans Spectres de Marx. Vingt ans plus tard, alors qu’une pandémie frappe aujourd’hui mondialement les corps, que l’urgence climatique menace la survie des espèces, que les frontières s’ouvrent et se ferment au gré de conjonctures de plus en plus fluctuantes, le moment est venu de rouvrir le débat biopolitique.
