    Controlled Languages for Musical Heritage: State of the Art, Tools, Perspectives

    The objective of this conference is to establish the state of the research around controlled languages in Documentation and Musicology, i.e., documentary languages based on tools such as lemmatizers, controlled vocabularies, taxonomies, thesauri, classifications, etc. By presenting ongoing or completed research in the field of digital musicology, its aim is to bring to light both best practices and problematic aspects, in order to identify effective and shareable working methodologies.

    Land Use and Consumption in a Historical Perspective

    Definitions, Concepts, and Methods

    The relationship between societies and soil is intrinsic to human history. Nowadays, this relationship is strongly defined by land use and consumption practices that, at different scales, increasingly threaten the common good and the biodiversity conservation. Urban planning interventions and intensive forms of production lead to the fragmentation, erosion, and ultimately, transformation of soil into a commodity, a freely usable “raw material,” rather than recognizing it as a non-reproducible good. In such a context, a revision of the evolution of concepts of use, consumption, and artificialization of the soil can contribute to a better understanding of the perspectives and rhetoric developed over time and in relation to contemporary challenges.

    “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.

    Journal “InterArtes”

    Depuis le développement des études sur la bande dessinée dans le monde occidental, à savoir dès les années soixante, on a observé une croissance imposante, dans différents domaines disciplinaires, de contributions scientifiques portant sur son langage et ses auteurs. Des reconstructions historiques, des études sociologiques, des interprétations culturelles, des analyses sémiotiques et linguistiques, des comparaisons intermédiales ont offert au cours de ces décennies un cadre historique, théorique et méthodologique permettant de définir le langage de la bande dessinée, ses formes, ses genres et ses évolutions, son dialogue avec les autres arts, sa valeur esthétique ainsi que son impact idéologique et culturel. Cependant, nous estimons qu'il reste encore beaucoup à explorer et à définir, notamment dans la relation – objet de nombreux débats récemment – entre la bande dessinée et la littérature.

    Digital democracy: promises and illusions

    Internet neutrality, access to information, democracy formats

    A stable and peaceful society is based on a solid and strong democracy. The democratic model is the future of any society that respects human rights.New information and communication technologies and the still poorly regulated advances in Artificial Intelligence have impacted not only all human activity, but have also contributed to reshaping the relationship with politics, citizen participation, political communication and politics, national and international. The purpose of this international conference is to question the phenomenon of electronic democracy not only from an instrumental point of view (e-voting tool), but to question the conditions of possibility and possible limits.

    Gaetano Salvemini (1873-1957) and France

    The conference intends to propose an overall re-examination of Salvemini's relations with France, starting with those matured with some historians during the drafting phase of his volume on the French Revolution (1905, subsequently reissued several times with variants), passing through his relations with some important intellectuals and those gravitating around the figure of his second wife Fernande Dauriac, arriving at those with the world of Italian and European antifascist exile. Vast and significant, even if not always marked by sympathy and harmony of ideas, appear, moreover, the relations with exponents of the labor movement and with various personalities of the French socialist world. A separate chapter is, finally, represented by relations with the Giustizia e Libertà movement.

    The Americans in the western Mediterranean (1942-1945)

    Landings, liberation and the "pax americana"

    The objective of this meeting is to refocus the history of landings and subsequent military liberation operations in the Western Mediterranean, between 1942 and 1945, from an American perspective. Indeed, from Operation Torch in North Africa to the landing in Provence in August 1944 and the final battles in Italy in the spring of 1945, the United States asserted their decisions over the British within the coalition. Furthermore, the arrival of thousands of American soldiers, coupled with the installation of dozens of military bases in North Africa, Italy, Southern France, and Corsica, was accompanied by the establishment of various administrative structures by the United States to ensure a return to order and to set up a kind of "Pax Americana" according to their own interests. The interactions of these soldiers with the local populations sometimes lead to tensions. The aim, from a comparative perspective, is to go beyond the simple military dimension and broaden the study of this theater of operations to include political, economic, social, and cultural fields.

    Thinking, practicing and living plurilingualism

    Third edition

    Reflecting the broad themes of this third conference, the three interconnected and complementary verbs of the title reflect an expanded sphere of investigation into language didactics and the construction of plurilingual identities, mostly linked to institutionalized places of learning such as schools or universities but also to other fields and approaches, to other professions and profiles involved in the exercise of interculturality and in the planning or management of plurilingual spaces. This international conference will bring together contributions from specialists in language didactics, didactics of plurilingualism, and language policies, grouped into three main sections for the purposes of fruitful exchange.

    Research libraries in Rome (1860-1930): the origins of an exceptional documentary collection

    Comment se sont constituées les collections documentaires exceptionnelles à l’étranger ? Quelle place cette histoire reflète-t-elle de la recherche en histoire, art et histoire de l’art dans l’histoire intellectuelle et culturelle de chacun des pays représentés, entre 1860 et 1930 ? Cette journée d’étude permet de poser le contexte des bibliothèques de recherche installées sur un territoire étranger et de s’intéresser en particulier aux premières décennies de leur fonctionnement, dans un arc chronologique assez large, des années 1830 aux lendemains de la Première Guerre mondiale.

    Merleau-Ponty’s materialisms

    Journal “Chiasmi International”

    Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology spontaneously evolves in the direction of an ontology, and on several occasions this ontology takes the form of a materialism. Many impulses exert their pressure on the trajectory of Merleau-Ponty’s thought. The Marxism with which he is confronted in the 1950s, the philosophies of nature that converge in his last courses, the great Husserlian theme of the body that explodes in The Visible and the Invisible in an ontology of the flesh. The spectrum of Merleauponty’s materialisms is thus irreducible to any preconceived paradigm and is always intimately embedded in the singular elaborations in which Merleau-Ponty is engaged.

    Au cœur des années 1970 italiennes : le tournant de 1973-1974

    Ce colloque propose, cinquante ans après les événements, une réflexion historique et historiographique sur les caractéristiques du biennio 1973-74 en Italie. Ces deux années représentent un passage décisif. Elles sont marquées, à l’échelle mondiale, par une série d’événements périodisants (coups d’État en Uruguay et au Chili, choc pétrolier, crise économique, fin des dictatures méditerranéennes...) dont il s’agira d’examiner les répercussions sur le contexte italien. Sur le plan national, ce biennio se situe à l’apogée de la modernisation politique et sociale du pays, confirmant le double visage d’une décennie pleine de contradictions (crise du centre gauche et premières hypothèses du compromis historique, paroxysme de la conflictualité ouvrière et passage à la lutte armée…). Nous nous proposons donc d’examiner les effets et enjeux du biennio 1973-74 sur le pays afin d’identifier plus précisément les spécificités du cas italien.

    Living through the Revolution

    Housing, property and citizenship (18th-21th centuries)

    L’objectif de ces journées est d’étudier la citadinité révolutionnaire, afin de nourrir la réflexion sur une série de notions connexes : habitat / logement / propriété. Chacune de ces notions renvoie à des rapports sociaux structurés par une série d’oppositions (sédentaires et nomades, propriétaires et locataires, résidence recensée et logement clandestin, logés et mal-logés) et à un spectre large de pratiques plus ou moins normées ou alternatives. Intégrer ces différents termes, étudier leurs variations, permettra non seulement de revenir sur les apports de différentes disciplines des sciences sociales, mais aussi d’être attentif aux variations des sources en fonction des contextes révolutionnaires.

    France – Italie. Allers / retours

    Luttes et revendications

    La France et l’Italie, comme formant un écosystème juridique intégré, suscitent le plus grand intérêt de la part des historiens du droit. L’analyse des dynamiques qui ont conduit à l’agencement actuel des systèmes juridiques contemporains ne peut faire l’économie de la prise en compte de ce contexte. Outre cet aspect général, le thème spécifique choisi pour cette troisième édition de « France-Italie allers/retours » est un thème spécifiquement lié au contexte italo-français. Le thème de luttes et revendications, qu’elles soient militaires, juridiques, syndicales ou même intellectuelles, a impliqué l’espace italo-français avec une grande homogénéité de questions, d’actions de la part des populations et de réponses de la part du droit. C’est pourquoi l’étude de ces dynamiques et tensions nécessite une étude intégrée des tendances pulsionnelles, culturelles et politiques, mais aussi des courants intellectuels qui, traversant la France et l’Italie, ont façonné nos sociétés.

    Eden Project

    “Vesper”. Journal of Architecture, Arts & Theory

    Eden Project aims to give space and visual representation to goals. It seeks to explore the ‘essence’ of pursued destinies, the tangible ‘collapse’ of imagined goals, and the tools employed in the realms of work, life, and thought to achieve them. Karl Kraus once argued: ‘Origin is the goal’. Eden represents the origin, eternally lost and only attainable as a goal. Eden, the garden of delights, in its innumerable interpretations and representations, is an enclosed place (indeed the original meaning of ‘paradise’ is ‘enclosed space’). It exists separately from the prevailing logic of the surrounding territory, exclusive in nature, safeguarding its unique contents: a realm brimming with water and diverse forms of life. Vesper invites a wide spectrum of narratives on that can contribute to the reflection of this matter, welcoming different writings and styles, privileging the visual intelligence of design, of graphic expression, of images and contaminations between different languages.

    Medioevo e femminismi

    In the wake of Madeline Caviness's seminal article, what assessment can be made of the fertile links between the Middle Ages and feminism? In its wake, the next issue of Perspectives médiévales invites us to take a fresh look at the reciprocal contributions of medievalism and feminism, as part of an epistemological and historical reflection on the Middle Ages and the present. The aim of this issue is to explore contemporary feminisms by exploring the Middle Ages and their representations. In other words, in what way is the Middle Ages an object of investigation both for feminist thought and by feminist thought?
