    On Matter

    Venice Issues

    Matter is said in many ways. From its constant presence along the history of philosophy, through the emergence of contemporary theoretical attempts to redefine it, to its central role in political and pedagogical debates, the concept of matter resists any fixed and unambiguous characterization. The main objective of this conference is to open up a debate, encouraging different disciplinary approaches, on the subject of matter. For this very reason, the structure of the conference has been articulated into four different panels which not only are aimed at fostering reflections on the conference topic, but also to represent a real ground for disciplinary exchange and dialogue. To this regard, we propose to explore the semantic constellation of matter in the fields of History of Philosophy and Science, in contemporary philosophical debates both theoretical and practico-political and, finally, from the perspective of Education Sciences.

    Collaborative practices: rethinking narratives and musealization processes

    “Práticas da História. Journal on Theory, Historiography, and Uses of the Past”

    Since the 1960s, different scientific fields have brought the collective construction of science to the center of their debates. In this context, the importance of different narratives, actors, and worldviews for scientific construction gains special attention. Public history, community archeology, and collaborative museology are some of the fields born out of this movement, and its scientific practices have intertwined in projects focused on political demands and social transformations. Aligned with the field of history, this dossier intends to question the intrinsic links between the constitution of hegemonic historical narratives, the construction of homeland histories in the emergence and consolidation of National States, and the emergence of museological institutions as places of construction and consolidation of the Authorized Discourses of Heritage.

    From Biopolitics to Ecoaesthetics

    Legacies of Encroachment(s) in French and Francophone literatures, arts, and medias

    The reality of globalization, and its inherent movements and interactions of bodies, challenges the radical frame and geographies of the aforementioned concepts. The inevitability of the relation, in its materialisations as contact, conflict, and integration, highlights the thin lines between acknowledging, understanding, and trespassing boundaries in human relations to each other and to the systems that govern their lives. The idea of encroachment in thinking of the experiences of boundaries in human relations captures the inevitable obsession for trespassing. Regardless of its motivation, trespassing has an impact on the body that is transformative. Therefore, the effects of encroachment pervade the body in its relation to itself and its environment(s). In thinking about legacies of encroachments in French and Francophone literatures, we think of the legacies of this concept in literary practices, in thematic choices across geographies, and its transmedial expressions within and beyond the literary canon(s).

  • Conference, symposium - Language

    Empathy and the Aesthetics of Language

    For three decades, the question of the role played by empathy in the aesthetic apprehension of language, and notably in the experience of literature, has been the topic of a growing number of studies. A joint project of the University of Parma, Aix-Marseille University and the University of Texas at Austin, this two-day webinar brings together thirteen experts – philosophers, literary theorists, neuroscientists, psychologists, historians – whose contributions will be published in two special issues of Texas Studies for Literature and Language (TSLL). Taken together, the talks proposed aim at offering an updated and encompassing discussion of recent, but also older research in the field. The webinar intends to address the question of empathy and the aesthetics of language from a cross-disciplinary and cross-methodological perspective, by giving room to both theoretical and empirical approaches and tackling the concept of empathy in all its semantic diversity.

    Political Economy of Human Rights Regulation in Latin American Business Activities

    HOMA Publica Journal

    The special issue aims to gather contributions from various stakeholders in the field of Human Rights and Business, with a particular emphasis on the Political Economy of human rights regulation in Latin American business activities. The interest of this special edition of Homa Publica in examining regulation within the deeper framework of political economy guiding the region in the second decade of the 21st century. This period begins with windows of opportunity for Latin American reformism while immersed in a turbulent international environment and crises that have particularly inhumane effects on our territories (mass exoduses, climate crisis, colonial, racist, and patriarchal inequalities).

    Immobilizing the Gaze: the Visual Fabrication of Events in the Early Modern Period

    The aim of this conference is to build a transdisciplinary dialogue to explore how certain perceptions create certain images, convey information and its interpretation(s) around the “event”, broadly understood here as an occurrence perceived as significant, whether it is singular or part of a sequence or even a series of sequences (assassination, conclave, embassy, battle, jubilee, canonization...). The focus is placed on the early modern period because the increase of writing and the greater circulation of images and information “fixed” events on an unprecedented scale; often, these new ways of viewing events were forged thousands of kilometers away from the place where the event occurred. Rome and the Italian peninsula in the sixteenth century will be at the heart of our interrogations both as represented space(s) and as place(s) of projections onto the world.

    Objects of Law in the Medieval and Early Modern Worlds

    Materials and texts function in a variety of ways in legal contexts, they forge diplomatic ties, grant gifts of land, levy taxes, regulate markets, etc. The connection between the materiality of artefacts and the law are multiple, their very nature conveyed information, performed authority, and communicated authenticity. The conference Objects of Law proposes thinking more deeply about the artistic practices that shaped the materiality, iconography, and texts of legal objects in the medieval and early modern period. Objects of Law seeks dialogue between scholars working in art history, history, archaeology, legal history, and related disciplines that deal with legal objects.

    Romance Languages in Medieval Latin Documentation

    Following recent discussions on the presence of Romance elements in medieval Latin documents, we propose this meeting, which aims at offering a new opportunity to reflect on all forms of manifestation of Romance languages in the mentioned texts, as well as to present the latest scientific advances made in their study in the wider European context. Thus, issues related to how, both morphologically and syntactically, the diplomas show the transition from Latin to Romance languages, the mechanisms for Latinizing Romance elements, or the presence of borrowings from other languages that were assumed by Romance languages, may be subject to analysis. Similarly, contributions will be welcome regarding the role that medieval Latin lexicography plays in relation to Romance language and how dictionaries and lexical databases contribute to their study.

    A Different Perspective for the Atlantic Routes

    Impressions and Exchanges in Transoceanic Journeys from the 16th to the 19th Century

    After more than two years of a preparation that have been careful and laborious, but slowed down and hindered several times by the difficulties that have arisen due to the global pandemic, this project finally gets underway. It intends to go back once more to questioning issues that already count important in-depth studies, like the transoceanic relations between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, but also has the ambition of wanting to integrate the results already obtained with new reflections and achievements, and above all with a different point of view.

    Migration and the construction of social stratifications

    A Bourdieusian approach on migrants’ positionalities in European societies

    This call aims to gather papers that investigate migrants’ insertion into European societies drawing inspiration from Bourdieu’s analysis. The 21st IMISCOE (International Migration Research Network) conference has reflexivity as its theme. It is arguable that few other sociological thinkers put the issue of epistemological reflexivity at the centre of their theoretical framework than Bourdieu. This entailed a reflexivity of both the position of the theorist, and connected with this, the concepts that they were using in order to understand and explain the social world. Such a reflexivity would of course also extend to the concepts used by migration scholars.

    A Space for ‘Place’ in Social Sciences

    Young Scholars workshop in Paris

    Territoriality or ‘place’ is a ubiquitous condition of human life. Yet, political, economic and sociological studies of place are rarely labeled as such and the field of study is fragmented across the social sciences. This two-day workshop provides young scholars the space to present and exchange their research on the role of ‘place’ in social sciences. We aim at kickstarting a transdisciplinary discussion by bringing together various perspectives of place-sensitive research. In doing so we help early career researchers to gather experience, inspire each other and build transdisciplinary networks. Additional funding from the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI) would increase the inclusivity of the workshop and enrich the collective discussion. Specifically, it would enable us to offer travel scholarships to students from disadvantaged universities, fields, and backgrounds, or with limited funding.
