    WeChat Ethnography: New Practices and Limits of an Emerging Research Methods

    As more and more social practices take place online, scholars have also changed their ways to conduct research, disrupting the traditional methods of social sciences. This workshop encourages researchers in social sciences and Chinese studies to share their “Wechatethnography” experiences and to open discussion related to online research methods, grasping the new opportunities as well as the limits and difficulties it provokes, bearing in mind that doing good ethnographic research consists of “finding practical anddefensible balancing points between opposing tensions”, and making accounts that are “properly responsible and accountable to their audience and their informants”.

    Public Policy in Africa

    A Political Economy Perspective

    African scholars’ contributions to public policy theoretical debates and research have remained little or quasi-invisible, especially at the global level of international journals’ databases. There is also little evidence of African terrain. This panel would like to contribute to filling this gap, thereby asking why such gaps, and looking at policy implications. The panel seeks to systematically question, understand and explain the economic divides in producing public policy research and publications at the international level. This panel is an interdisciplinary venue. It is open to contributions from different political and social sciences fields using public policy as an area of research in Africa: economics, anthropology, political sociology, public administration, political economy, international relations, etc.

    The Art Museum in the Digital Age

    The Belvedere Research Center is continuing its conference series on the digital transformation of art museums with its fifth event on the topic. While the 2022 conference challenged binary concepts such as analog/ digital, this year’s event critically examines the imagined cultural metaverse. In four thematic online sessions and an on-site workshop, the lectures deal with the immersive experiences of virtuality and reality, cultural heritage data, value discourse surrounding the metaverse and NFTs, and self-perception and the social role of museums.

    Reading reuse. Image recycling in Egypt and beyond

    The Institut français d’archéologie orientale (Cairo) is organizing a workshop on the concept of reuse of decorated artifacts (entire monuments or wall reliefs, pieces of furniture, statues, figurines, painted or incised pots, items of personal or mobiliary adornment, etc.) in archaeological or architectural settings. It is in the academic interest to bring together scholars from various areas and periods, through a comparative approach, which is not limited to the study of past societies but also benefits from the insights of cultural anthropology.

    Limits of Europeanness? Contested Notions of Difference and Belonging (16th-21st Centuries)

    Fourteenth Annual Conference of the Research Network on the History of the Idea of Europe

    A basic tension inherent in any idea of Europe is that it links some set of “cultural values” to a geographical space on the western fringe of the Asian landmass, but at the same time allows for a significant degree of internal diversity, the boundaries of which are constantly shifting and disputed. There is ample evidence for the continuing force of visions of centre and periphery in this context, both on the territorial and metaphorical level. The variety of ways in which such topographies of cultural values have served to underpin notions of difference and belonging in the light of Europeanness are at the core of this conference. In exploring this multi-faceted field of research, we aim to bring together several disciplines ranging from history, intellectual history and art history over cultural and literary studies to musicology and anthropology.

    Beyond Russia’s Two Capitals: Regional Art Exhibitions in the Russian Empire

    Art life in the regions of the Russian Empire has often been sidelined in the larger picture of art history, and this conference aims to bring this vital material to wider attention and stimulate discussion. If the 1905 relaxing of censorship vastly increased the number of exhibitions, local societies and individuals had already established regular and highly significant exhibitions all over the Empire. We invite colleagues to illuminate and discuss exhibitions that were held in the different regions, to consider their specific features and become part of this huge — and inevitably collaborative — project. We particularly welcome papers that address exhibitions before 1905.

    Kinship, Neighborhoods and Communities in The Maghreb: Or How to Rethink the Bond between the Local and the Global?

    Nowadays, it seems somewhat anachronistic to speak of bonds of kinship or neighborly relationships, networks of solidarity, mutual aid and support that they can entail in a (post)modernity that is increasingly characterized by the shift and transfer of the social and economic functions once attributed to the family, to public authorities. While matters of belonging and identities seem to be increasingly affected by quite virtual and proximate factors whereby spheres would be considered as being increasingly more seamless and permeable. Nonetheless, recent socio-anthropological studies have perversely revealed that patterns of kinship, family bonds, community or neighborhood ties seem to remain a remarkably significant part of the lived experiences of humans, albeit continuing to control the relationships among people and between people and their environment. The main goal of this symposium is to raise questions about the relevance of kinship, neighborhood and community as a source of meaning, identity and socio-economic solidarity.

    The First National Conference on Language, Literature, and Culture (NCLLC)

    Todd (1987) defined literature as "language at full stretch". Stretch, here, refers to all the different practices of language by its users, and the common or even rare stylistic features of those users. Thus, a deep understanding of literature, especially the specific usages by writers and poets requires the mastery of the sentence’s internal mechanisms and beyond.

    Catholicism and Anticommunism – The height of Pius XII’s pontificate

    Series of conferences and seminars 2023-2024, Fribourg-Rome-Paris

    From the first condemnation of communism in the Encyclical Qui Pluribus (1846) to the excommunication decrees of 1949, 1950 and 1959, anticommunism seems to be a fundamental reflex of the Catholic Church. Its manifestations range from theology to devotional practices, through the commitments of Christian parties and trade unions. Catholic anticommunism needs to be looked at with a fresh look after the opening of the archives of the pontificate of Pius XII (1939-1958). this series of colloquia and seminars aims to stimulate research in these newly available archives.

    Polarized Societies? Challenges for Sociology

    XII Portuguese Congress of Sociology

    The challenges that polarization brings to sociology now extend to crucial domains of social processes and action, reaching, among others, the arenas of consumption, religions, identities, sexuality, childhood, culture, and science. In this context, the digitization of society and the economy creates and emphasizes dynamics of polarization, while simultaneously opening up new possibilities. Beyond the general impact on social interactions and practices, to what extent are the new social media a factor that promotes expressions of polarization?

    Seminar - Sociology

    Toward an integrative cognitive science of social inequalities

    The goal of this seminar series is to discuss research coming out of the fields of cognitive science and sociology, with the hope of articulating the social and cognitive dimensions of inequalities. Are there bridges between these two fields? What are the challenges for interdisciplinary research? Although the differences between the fields of cognitive science and sociology cannot be denied, the goal of this seminar is to facilitate scientific exchange among communities of researchers interested in questions that relate to social inequality.
