    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.

    The Fantastic from screen to books, from books to screen: adaptations, reworkings, translations, mentions

    Revue « Caderno de Letras », #43 (2022)

    Since its origins, Cinema has made evident the existence of an open dialogue with other forms of art, either by having incorporated them into its own language – given its hybrid particularity, being simultaneously narrative, performative, visual and voiced –, or by having used existing productions as inspiration and having created, from them, new forms of art. Literature has proven to be a fertile ground for inspiration. Not by chance, great works that mark the beginning of the cinematographic trajectory were adaptations of novelistic or theatrical literary works. We propose for the issue 43 of Journal Caderno de Letras a dossier on all the potentialities of such dialogue involving Fantastic literary and audiovisual productions, whether based on adaptations (in both directions) or on the direct or indirect presence of Literature in audiovisual media or of audiovisual productions in literary texts.

    Petropolitics in the Countries of the South

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°250 (2022-3)

    For this special issue, we consider a broad approach to the world of hydrocarbons, ranging from economics to cultural issues, and including history, politics, demography, sociology, and anthropology. Our aim is to go beyond a conception that reduces oil-producing countries to black boxes with outgoing flows of oil and gas and incoming financial flows, thus boiling everything down to this single (economic, political, and geopolitical) issue. Before causing global warming, oil had an in situ impact on territories, human communities, and ecosystems. This approach calls for a critical rereading of the abundant literature on the oil-producing countries of the South, in order to tackle oil-related phenomena differently, to identify new connections between them, and to examine those which are only little or not studied.

    Old age: experience and representations

    Pour sa onzième édition, la journée des doctorant·e·s du laboratoire AMERIBER (EA 3656) vise à explorer le concept de vieillesse – processus physiologique inévitable mais aussi construction sociale dont les caractéristiques varient selon les époques – dans les champs des sciences humaines, des arts et de la littérature. Les onze interventions de cette journée permettront d'explorer ses différentes représentations mais aussi les enjeux socio-culturels, artistiques, institutionnels, littéraires et politiques qui en découlent.

    Festivals and trans (national) cinematographic dynamics : forms of production, circulation and representation

    This international conference will take place at the University of Toulouse 2, simultaneously to the international film festival Cinelatino - Rencontres de Toulouse in March 2022. The objective is to go beyond a binary national / transnational approach to cinema in order to understand the articulation between practices, mediations, rhetorics and representations that form this contemporary cinematographic spatiality. It aims at promoting a collective and internationally open dialogue around the strong relations between festivals, production support systems, residencies and the circulation of professionals. If the starting point was the cinemas of Latin America, it is now our intention to develop a more comparative approach with other regions of the world which also participate in these international dynamics - such as Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Near and Middle East....

    Imagining the “musical memorial”

    Music and (re)transmission of memories of slave trades and slaveries

    The aim of this special issue is to pursue the reflection initiated by the journal Esclavages & post~esclavages/Slaveries & Post~Slaveries on the work of artists and their re-actualization through sensitive forms of the history and memories of the slave trades and slaveries, this time with a focus on the question of music. This dossier will attempt to unfold the complex ways in which music has become a source and a resource for memories, from the time of the slave trades and slaveries to the present day.

    The Americas, lands of books

    RITA N°15

    In 2020, a project to introduce a tax on books in Brazil—the sector had so far enjoyed a tax-exempt status—, promoted by the Ministry of Economy, clashed with the country's publishing community and was finally buried by pressure from Evangelical circles, eternal supporters of the Bolsonaro government. In a country where the Bible is still the most widely read book, and where sales records are held by religious publishing houses, it is obvious that this could only represent an object of conflict. Beyond its anecdotal dimension, this fact raises questions about the book itself as an object. As trivial and mundane as it may seem, the book is still a strategic object, which can be apprehended in its materiality, as Roger Chartier does—by observing its circulation, its storage, its sales and purchases, whether official or underground—but also in its content.

    The automatised transcription of manuscript sources with eScriptorium

    Cette formation a pour objet la transcription automatisée de sources manuscrites, en anglais HTR (Handwritten Text Recognition), via l’outil eScriptorium, une alternative libre à Transkribus, développée à l’université PSL en partenariat avec INRIA, qui s’appuie sur l’outil de transcription automatisée Kraken et qui montre ses fruits en termes d’efficacité et de disponibilité du code source. Cette formation sera centrée sur une écriture répandue en Péninsule Ibérique entre le XIIIe et le XVe siècle, représentée par un manuscrit du scriptorium du roi Alphonse X, le Sage (1221-1284), autour duquel tournera la formation, et à partir duquel sera produit un modèle de reconnaissance automatique qui sera publié par la suite. Il s’agira ici de faire dialoguer philologie et humanités numériques.

    Translating experience

    Writing extreme violence after 1945

    La parole est impossible mais l’oubli est intolérable, écrit Nicole Lapierre dans Le silence de la mémoire. C’est dans cette tension que se joue le témoignage d’une expérience particulière, celle de la violence extrême. Portant son regard sur les récits des victimes de violence extrême (génocides, massacres de masse, guerres civiles, domination coloniale…), ce colloque s’intéresse « au témoin qui écrit », que celui-ci ait écrit pour survivre ou que l’écriture fasse elle-même partie d’un projet global de vie. Il aborde à la fois les écrits autobiographiques et fictionnels (romans, poésie, contes, récits de voyage, scénarios…) et invite à explorer la façon dont ces différentes corporalités textuelles expriment leur matérialité selon leurs particularités esthétiques, temporelles et contextuelles.

    The politics and poetics of down-and-outs

    Rogues and picaros in medieval and renaissance Spain and England

    Within Western literature, the picaresque was quickly perceived as a “historically and geographically delimited tradition” specific to Spain during the Golden Age, a genre apart from the rest, almost without precedent. Going against this common misconception, recent studies have reminded us of the importance of the Apuleian and Lucian origins of this ‘new’ narrative formula. The wily beggar thus seems the prodigal son of the Ancients. Shouldn't we therefore extend the reflection and, at the very least, reconsider the scientific cliché that sees in this character the perfect (dissident) example of the Renaissance hero? Didn't the Middle Ages also contribute to the creation of the cunning rogue?
