    Violent Turns: Sources, Interpretations, Responses

    The aim of this international conference is to provide researchers with an interdisciplinary platform to investigate and debate the question of contemporary irruptions of political violence and to inquire into the different responses intended to counteract violence. When and why do individuals, groups, and societies come to believe that peaceful means and legal avenues of redress, including non-violent civil disobedience, are insufficient or improper to achieve a social or political goal and to view violent action as morally legitimate and necessary for change? Can one identify trends shaping recourse to violence by parts of the populace? What role does state violence play in the dialectic? When, if ever, is political violence legitimate? How can violence be averted?

    Politeness, impoliteness and interpersonal communication

    Revue Verbum et Lingua

    Verbum et Lingua invites submissions for its special 22nd issue on politeness, impoliteness and interpersonal communication. Papers may cover any aspect of these social practices and possible topics may include, but not exclusively, rapport management, mitigation, gossip and small talk. A focus on Spanish-language politeness practices would be of particular interest. Proposals relating politeness and impoliteness to foreign language teaching would also be especially welcome.

    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.

    Magnats, entremetteurs et contrebandiers : les distributeurs de films et leurs réseaux au XXe siècle

    Moguls, Go-betweens and Smugglers: Film Distributors and their Networks in the Twentieth Century

    This workshop aims at revisiting the history of film importers/exporters and distributors throughout the 20th century by examining the social inscription of their trade. Moguls, go-betweens and/or smugglers, film traders were main actors in determining the value of films, building film markets, bringing out audiences by giving them (or not) access to the films. Yet, the history of cinema has long ignored the figure of the distributor, too bland to obscure the ethereal figure of the author, too close to the limelight to interest those, less numerous, researching “those wonderful people out there in the dark,” the audience. This workshop seeks to reconstruct the diversity of networks these businessmen/women used to maintain, how they positioned themselves in relation to their peers, remembering that many distributors also acted as exhibitors and producers.

    After Nature

    Aesthetics & Critique, V

    For centuries, artists have been keen to paint from nature. What remains of this aesthetic project in a world where nature is revealed as already fully “anthropized”? What is left of nature, when it has lost the status of the Great Outdoors? Faced with climate emergency, other politics – but also: aesthetics – of nature become urgent. How to conceive a nature that is no longer located beyond us, but that permeates us? How to think, in return, a nature already marked by recursive processes, in short: by technique ? Perhaps nature after nature never was but that: a nature that discovers itself as having always been second nature. A nature as art.

    The Phonology-Lexicology interface

    In many studies in lexicology, the description of the lexicon of a given language is traditionally considered from two complementary points of view: the level of form, which concerns lexical morphology, and the level of meaning, which is partly dealt with by lexical semantics. Thus, from a Saussurean perspective, a lexical unit is a two-sided entity, combining a signifier (form) and a signified (meaning). However, it is clear that lexicology and phonology are intertwined, to the point that, if lexicology is to truly deal with all the aspects of lexical units (form, meaning and use), it cannot do so without phonology. This issue of Lexis, co-edited by Christophe Coupé, Quentin Dabouis, Olivier Glain and Vincent Hugou, aims to explore the strong, even consubstantial, link between lexicology and phonology.

    Conflictualité chileno-mapuche entre deux siècles

    Desde una perspectiva de largo plazo, las relaciones entre el pueblo mapuche y la sociedad chilena evidencian frecuentemente tintes de conflictividad. Ya sea desde un punto de vista político, territorial o económico, a menudo estallan crisis que tensionan, cuando no oponen, a ambas identidades tanto discursiva como factualmente. Este seminario recorre dos de esos momentos críticos: por un lado la Guerra de Pacificación (1862-1883), que consagra la anexión del país mapuche por parte del Estado chileno, y por otro, la emergencia del discurso plurinacional durante el presente año 2022 que desemboca en el rechazo de la llamada constitución indigenista.

    Corporeal Conversations

    Works of art call out to each other, engaging in conversations that span borders and epochs. From the circulation of written works within salon culture to the power of images to capture a movement, how might we understand our interactions with media and each other as conversations centered around and facilitated by bodies? Papers may address the following topics: the construction of a corpus, the relationship between text and criticism, issues of voice, how bodies speak for themselves, the legibility of a body as racialized, gendered, and/or disabled, the afterlife of a work of art, the legacy of creative traditions, the construction of archives, and texts as living documents. Finally, how might our own interventions be understood as corporeal conversations in their own right?

    ¿Quién hace tanta bulla? Actualité de Trilce de César Vallejo

    Más que un simple homenaje o una merecida celebración, el coloquio internacional ¿Quién hace tanta bulla? Actualité de Trilce tiene como objetivo pensar dicho poemario, en el centenario de su publicación, como una de las expresiones más extremas de la modernidad poética, en el marco de la revolución verbal y artistica provocada por las primeras vanguardias. El propósito de esta manifestación científica es también y sobre todo explorar las vidas y prolongaciones ulteriores de este libro a través de las diversas obras poéticas, artisticas, críticas, e incluso filosóficas, que desde 1922 hasta hoy dialogan con él.

    Rhythm and Art

    Rhythm is a central element in the creation of meaning in art, and its configuration is such that it requires a multi, inter and transdisciplinary approach. The difference of materials, procedures and events masks the resemblance of rhythmic phenomena that are similar in different arts and hides their identity or their homology. In the work of some scholars, the concepts do not seem to belong to a particular artistic discipline, being rather characteristic of the rhythmic phenomenon. The objective of this conference is to provide an instance for exchanging knowledge, concerns and aspirations for those who have been devoting themselves to the study of rhythm and artistic creation on the subject.

    Matter Materiality

    Materiality, resulting from the effect produced by the properties of matter, is grasped within environments and contexts of reception that are also changing and have nothing fixed or definitive. These properties are manifested through the effects of textures, surfaces, weight, extension in space, format, gestural traces, and material effects... The concept of materiality therefore refers to the fact that the artifacts are composed of materials and, at a theoretical level, to all the processes — technical, cultural and social — that undergird the realization and the material perception of works of art. It is in this spirit that the theme chosen for the 36th CIHA congress is intended. This theme thus provides an opportunity for fruitful intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue on questions that promote a transversal perspective at the intersection of approaches and methodologies.

    Beyond Early Cinema: Persistence of Travelling Cinema Throughout the Twentieth Century

    This workshop will explore travelling cinema practises on a global scale in their historical, material and cultural diversity and will look at the ways in which they interfere with the communal identities of audiences. How communities – understood as porous, linguistic, ethnic, religious groups, crossed by various social and cultural dynamics – structured travelling cinema audiences and, conversely, how travelling cinema screening venues created, reinforced or perturbed community identities? The time span adopted goes from the 1920s to the end of the 20th century, up to the moment when television got rooted in the daily spectatorial practices and the VCR player developed (a point in time that differs according to local media histories).

    Le panhispanisme : tensions, écarts, rencontres

    Société des hispanistes français

    Le mot panhispanisme a toujours fait référence, surtout, à la langue en ce qu’elle constitue le dénominateur commun d’un ensemble de territoires dans lesquels on utilise l’espagnol de façon plus ou moins prépondérante. Le but du prochain colloque international de la Société des hispanistes français (SHF) est de s’interroger, de débattre et d’échanger, depuis des approches et des perspectives variées, sur la notion et la réalité du panhispanisme. L’hispanisme, le lusitanisme, le galéguisme, le catalanisme et l’américanisme sont concernés par cette thématique qui se déclinera en plusieurs disciplines : lexicographie, dialectologie, traductologie, didactique de la langue, analyse du discours, glottopolitique, sociolinguistique, civilisation, études culturelles, études postcoloniales, études cinématographiques et histoire en général.

    “Translang”: Moving beyond languages

    Translang is a journal of translation and languages founded in 2002 at the University of Oran. The published works in the journal were more directed to German with a clear orientation towards translation. From 2010 onwards, Translang becomes multidisciplinary and more languages a represent : English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Russian and the work between translation and languages is balanced. The themes addressed today are particularly related to the reflection on translation as a process, especially the translation of specialised texts (technical, literary, artistic), on the interpreting process (simultaneous,consecutive, community), on the cognitive aspects of translation, history of translation, didactics and pedagogy, translatology, terminology, etc.
