    Poder, arte e identidad en tiempos del duque de Lerma

    En 2025 tendrá lugar el cuarto centenario del fallecimiento de Francisco Gómez de Sandoval y Rojas, I duque de Lerma, constituyendo esta efeméride una oportunidad para re­flexionar sobre su figura y su tiempo. Lerma es, sin duda, una de las personalidades más fascinantes del rico y sugestivo panorama del Siglo de Oro español, tan compleja como controvertida y cuya lectura exige una perspectiva multifocal que permita acercarnos a su poliédrica personalidad.

    Interférences entre l’écrit et la praxis dans l’œuvre de l’artiste plasticien Nja Mahdaoui

    Dans son ouvrage « Entre l’écrit et le visuel », l’artiste théoricien Samir Triki parle des « voies de circulation entre la matière littéraire et la matière artistique, ainsi que les éléments spécifiques et endogènes qui caractérisent l’une ou l’autre ». Seules ces chaînes sont capables de renseigner sur la mesure, dans laquelle l’artiste s’attache à faire correspondre son écriture à sa pratique. C’est dans ce contexte que se déroulera cette journée d’étude, mettant en lumière l’expérience de l’un des artistes les plus célèbres, dont les œuvres sont les plus diverses et les plus ouvertes sur son être-créateur, sur l’héritage et sur l’Autre, avec toutes les contradictions, bifurcations et intersections que portent ces univers. Nous voulons parler de l’expérience de l’artiste Nja Mahdaoui, considérée comme l’une des expériences artistiques arabes et africaines les plus importantes, la plus connue et reconnue par les pays du « centre » occidental, ainsi que par les pays du Moyen-Orient.

    Alternative Mediatization of Politics: Self-Media, Web TV, and Opinion Channels

    Altermédiatisation du politique : self-médias, Web TV et chaînes d’opinion

    The forthcoming issue of the Cahiers Protagoras invites authors to delve into the mechanisms by which the (ideological) monopoly of information is circumvented and challenged. Another objective is to comprehend the mediagenic strategies deployed by political actors — mediagénie, defining their inclination to “achieve their full potential by choosing the media partner that suits them best” (Marion, 1997). Evaluating the mediativity [médiativité] of these new political communication mechanisms (each medium possessing a 'specific imaginary') is another potential area for analysis. Finally, an examination of moderation and regulation practices specific to these emerging media spaces is anticipated.

    Création artistique à l’ère de l’intelligence artificielle

    الابداع زمن الذكاء الاصطناعي

    Cette journée d’étude a pour objectif de mettre en lumière la relation entre la créativité et l’intelligence artificielle dans le monde, et en Tunisie, et amener à la table, des cours, des discussions et des expériences qui éclairent de nouveaux aspects de la vie académique et scientifique. On tend aussi à appréhender des traitements à dimensions contemporaines, présentés par des chercheurs, dont les échos ne nous sont pas parvenus jusqu’alors. Peut-être aspirons-nous à présenter de nouvelles approches nées du sein de toutes ces fertilisations croisées.

    Trans, queer and “third gender” people in Muslim countries

    Journal “Anthropology of the Middle East” (AME) – Issue 20.1 (Summer 2025)

    Today, despite some prohibitions, more and more trans and queer people are asserting their gender identity in Muslim societies. Over and above the importance of gender binarity and spatial separation in Muslim countries, there are many historical figures of "third gender", to use the concept introduced by the anthropologist Gilbert Herdt. In the Muslim world, the term "third gender" generally refers to the eunuch of Ottoman harems, but there are many other figures in the Islamic context, varying from countries (Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Mauritania, Egypt, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Albania...) and times. As the vocabulary and realities are plural, depending on the country and the period, the specificities of these figures and their names will be analyzed, as well as the ways in which these groups or individuals designate themselves. This issue will examine these figures collectively as a group (hijra, trans, queer...), and their role and social status, but will also look at them as individuals.

    Summer School - History

    Summer University dedicated to Food and Drink Studies

    Since 2003, our summer university has positionned itself as a leading platform for reflection on new research in Food Studies. After several thematic editions, this 2024 edition will continue its ambition to provide a resolutely broad overview of these fields of research from a multidisciplinary perspective. Over the last twenty years or so, new themes have emerged and given new impetus to research in food studies. How do they fit together within the various disciplines of humanities and social sciences, from anthropology and history to sociology and literary studies ? How can young researchers position themsleves in relation to the wide-ranging possibilities offered by this field of research ? Leading specialists from different disciplinary backgrounds will address these questions through the prism of their own research.

    The Role of Women in Decorative Arts and Design in France (1850 to the Present)

    Women played an important role in the history of decorative arts and design. Recent exhibitions (Here We Are! Women in Design 1900 – Today at the Vitra Museum in 2021 and Parall(elles): A History of Women in Design at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2023) displayed an overall approach of the question. But in some countries as France, what is the state of the issues and how is the contribution of women to be placed in this general context? This conference aims to discuss and to provide a state of research on the question but also to shed light on an aspect of artistic creation. It aims also to give an overview of the evolution and role of women in the decorative arts and design in France since the mid-19th century, in order to complete a current knowledge related to an ongoing field of research in the history of art and creative industries.

    “Imago Mundi”. An Overview of Metaphor: Creativity, Phraseology and Discourse

    The guiding question of the conference will therefore be to try to specify the linguistic and conceptual functioning of the metaphor. More generally, the conference will welcome any contribution aimed at bringing out the relationships between metaphor and the three concepts in question: creativity, lexicalization and discourse. The analysis of metaphor can proceed from both a diachronic and synchronic perspective and address different types of corpora and texts. The conference will pay particular attention to the analysis of different types of discourse, in particular scientific, technological, media, tourism, advertising, political, legal, philosophical, historical, literary, artistic and educational/didactic discourse.

    Contemporary Societies Facing Risks

    Contexts, actors, experiences, and response stakes

    By the midst of the the twentieth century, the world had become the scene of profound social and historical transformations sustained technological and ecological developments. Such transformations often testify to the transition from the first modernity of an industrial aspect to the second modernity, usually characterized by “cosmic risks”. Consistent with these transitions, the concept of risk has witnessed remarkable developments, evolving into an integrated approach adopted in the analysis of the profound changes in industrial society whereby the unforeseen consequences of human actions have become more frequent, intense, and influential, posing a threat to human existence altogether. Diverse scientific studies addressing the issue of risk(s) across different fields point to the structural and complex crisis accompanying the “second modernity”.

    Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW)

    The first-ever International Conference on Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW), held in Abu Dhabi in 2019, organized to spark off a series of conferences on the subject. Four years later, and following a global epidemic, it is time to reassemble for exploring and move ahead with the practises, experiences, and challenges of digital archiving in the Arab World. The inaugural colloquium/conference examined the issues of data preservation in the Arab world and eventually resulted in a publication release that continues to serve as a reference for researching the subject today (Bayoumi & Oliveau, 2020). At DAAW|2024, we aspire to address it through the more focused standpoint of the digital management and preservation of data and documents, without foregoing a broader reflection, concerning both historical and future documents and data in danger whether physical or natively digital.

    Political, cultural and intellectual South-North circulations in the post-Bandung era: towards a connected history of the Commonwealth

    By choosing to focus on South-North circulations, this seminar is dedicated to the deconstruction of the “British Empire” as a homogeneous category to write and think about the intellectual, artistic, and political histories of the people who circulate and inhabit this polity known as the Commonwealth of Nations in the post-Bandung era. Working from the assumption that committed artists, intellectuals and political activists from the Global South have networked and connected within this space, we seek to interrogate the counter-hegemonic nature of the knowledge, theories and artistic practices produced during the post-Bandung era. We thus call for the study of the circulation and transfers of political and cultural ideas but also the intellectual trajectories of individuals, collectives and institutions.

    La néo-réaction

    Extrême droite et mouvements antidémocratiques en Amérique latine au XXIe siècle, dans le contexte numérique

    Cette journée d'étude a pour objectif d'aborder des mouvements néo-réactionnaires de caractéristiques et d’ampleur diverses que se sont consolidés dans le contexte latino américain ces dernières années et qui représentent un risque non seulement pour la démocratie, mais aussi pour l’idée même de politique. Ces phénomènes correspondent au spectre que constitue l’extrême droite, et auxquels on fait référence aujourd'hui avec les notions de « néo-fascismes », « post-fascismes » ou de « néoconservateurs ». On parle même de « populismes de droite » ou « fascisme démocratique » et certains proposent l’idée d’une nouvelle « extrême droite 2.0 ». Par ailleurs, dans le contexte de l’Amérique Latine,  il existe un assemblage de plus en plus consolidé entre ces mouvements et les groupes de pouvoir traditionnels. Cela a recueilli un soutien grandissant parmi des secteurs plus larges de la population, en corrélation avec des conditions de vie marquées par la précarité et un cadre institutionnel qui ne s’est jamais affermi, entraînant un mécontentement généralisé.

    The Tangier Zone Statute Centenary

    Bringing together scholars from both sides of the Mediterranean, this conference aims to renew interest in the International Zone of Tangier (1925–56). It will take place 100 years to the day after France, Spain, and the United Kingdom signed the Zone’s constitutive treaty, known as the “Tangier Zone Statute”. The agreement, which was later joined by Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Italy, subjected Tangier to a special regime: although nominally an integral part of Morocco, the city and its surroundings were to a large extent subject to the joint administration of Western powers.

    Prensa, democracia e integración europea, 1975-1996

    L’objectif de ce colloque international est d’aborder le processus d’intégration européenne et de consolidation de la démocratie en Espagne à partir de la presse, en comprenant ces deux processus comme des réalités qui présentent un profil singulier dans leur dimension de « constructions médiatiques ». Seront acceptées les propositions qui analysent les changements matériels qui ont lieu dans la structure de la presse espagnole (économique ou politique) en relation avec les processus de démocratisation et d’intégration européenne ; les recherches qui analysent le contenu publié dans la presse sur la manière dont l’idée européenne est présentée aux Espagnols ; ainsi que les travaux qui étudient les profils individuels ou collectifs des personnes ou des groupes impliqués dans ces processus.
