    Principles and actions for second language training, in migratory and pandemic contexts

    This call for papers follows on the colloquium held in Metz in September 2018 and is based on the various measures put in place to welcome migrants through language training. As the context in which we work has evolved, our thinking and actions now take into account the health crisis, which has multiplied the fragilities and vulnerabilities that had increased by the turn of the century with globalization, and even more so, the migration flow, which involved and still involve the responsibility of host societies. As for the new fragilities and vulnerabilities that have emerged in the pandemic context, they concern in particular the freedom of mobility, access to online courses, and the impacts of social distancing.

    Seminar - Prehistory and Antiquity

    Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico

    Diritto e Ritualità

    The full online seminar “Diritto e Ritualità” 10-11 November 2021 will focus on questions of Greek law and ritual forms in the ancient world, investigated through the lens of anthropology. We will explore the relationship between rhetoric and law, the evidence of judicial practices in literary sources and some issues related to the analysis of specific epigraphic sources (defixiones and prayers for justice). In the second day, we will try to put some ritual forms of the ancient world into context. In particular, we will investigate the function of knucklebones in Greek sanctuaries and the relationship between the ludic dimension and the ritual one. Late antique adoratio will also be discussed in light of the most recent theories developed by Anthropology and Ritual Studies.

    Transcrire l’oralité politique dans l’Italie communale (XIIe-début du XVe siècle)

    La prise de parole en assemblée caractérise la vie politique et institutionnelle de l’Italie communale. Pour autant, notamment en raison du manque de discours conservés, les travaux consacrés à la transcription de l’oralité politique et à la diversité de ses expressions (au-delà de l’assemblée) sont encore rares. Cette journée d’étude, qui se tiendra à Rome le 28 avril 2022, est envisagée comme un atelier d’échange permettant la mise en commun de travaux réalisés ou en cours sur cette thématique. Elle a pour but d’engager des chercheurs et chercheuses aux approches méthodologiques distinctes dans une lecture collective de la spécificité des sources écrites transmettant une oralité politisée. L’objectif est de dégager des grilles d’analyse conjointes, des problématisations transversales et de nourrir une réflexion commune sur les apports et les limites d’une histoire du monde communal fondée sur ces documents.

    Conference, symposium - Representation

    History, architecture and heritage: building the architectural identity. Milan, Europe (1796-1848)

    Ce colloque international propose une réflexion collective et transdisciplinaire sur les multiples significations du concept de patrimoine architectural, artistique et culturel dans la période comprise entre la fin du XVIIIe et la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Le champ géographique d’investigation s’ouvre aux principales villes italiennes et européennes qui ont été touchées par le phénomène de redécouverte mais aussi de réutilisation - parfois abusive - de leur patrimoine architectural et culturel au cours de cette période. Le colloque propose ainsi de réfléchir sur le concept de « patrimoine » entre 1796 et 1848 en Europe, son évolution et ses interprétations en rapport avec l’histoire de l'architecture et de la ville.

    Tradition, Persistence, and Innovation in Artistic Craftsmanship and in Building and Architectural Production between the Napoleonic Era and the Restoration

    Milan in a European Context

    With Milan proclaimed first the capital of the Cisalpine Republic in 1797 (from 1802, Italian Republic) and then in 1805 the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, the city was challenged to reconsider and rebuild its image and its urban spaces in order to adapt them to its new role. Part of a network of capitals responding to a single central power, both political and cultural, Milan experienced a period that featured significant incentives for public and private architectural building works and for the transformation of urban spaces. These conditions make the Lombard capital a privileged context in which to investigate the multiple forms of organization of artisanal and artistic work, as well as the circulation of people and materials. The seminar aims to reflect on the dialectic between the new status quo and the centuries-old stratified traditions inherent to the Milanese territory, also taking into consideration the Restoration period, when, in the new political-administrative structure of the Lombard-Veneto Kingdom, Milan, while remaining the capital, found itself in a new context that established a variety of artistic geographies.

    Knowledge - Power - Action

    Congress of the Swiss Philosophical Society

    The relationship between “knowledge”, “power” and “action” affects many areas of social life and individual existence. Let us think, for example, of politics, health care or education: What kind of knowledge is at the service of power? How “having to let know” and “not wanting to know” intersect in clinical practice? How to teach and to learn “to act” and “to be able to act”? In all these areas, philosophy can accompany a careful reflection on the three concepts with the aim of learning more: about “knowledge” in its various forms (theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge, universal knowledge and singular knowledge, rational knowledge and sensitive knowledge); about “power” as the ability to act and produce effects or also as authority and domination; about “action” in its manifold implications, especially about the responsibility towards others that is always inherent in it.

    (Re)reading travellers to the East

    Shaping identities and building the nation in post-unification Italy

    The conference (Re)reading Travellers to the East, shaping identities and nation-building in post-unification Italy approaches early modern travel literature (15th-18th centuries) from an innovative historiographical perspective. Rather than to discuss the documentary value of these sources for the times and spaces in which they were produced, the aim is to focus on the re-readings and re-editions to which they have been subjected, in order to highlight how travel literature has been (re)used for political and ideological purposes. The conference examines the way in which these early modern documents have been mobilised, since the 19th century and up to the present day, in the context of the formation of collective identities and nation-building. The conference focuses on the relations between the Italian peninsula and the countries which, in modern times, were referred to as the Orient, the Indies or the Levant.

    Conference, symposium - History

    The question of the emancipation of women in Italy (1815-1930)

    Le colloque sera centré sur les discours produits au XIXe siècle et au début du XXe siècle sur l’émancipation des femmes en Italie dans toute leur variété et leur complexité, y compris les discours opposés à l’indépendance féminine. On prêtera une attention précise aux multiples déclinaisons du féminisme en Italie (les revendications des écrivaines, des « émancipationnistes »-emancipatrici, ainsi que des défenseurs des droits des femmes) au-delà de la tendance hagiographique qui a consisté à présenter des biographies élogieuses et idéalisées des femmes d’action du Risorgimento, ainsi que des interprétations historiographiques qui ont souvent réduit les positions féministes aux revendications suffragistes. Les récentes recherches en histoire culturelle, qui ont considérablement élargi l’approche de l’histoire des femmes au cours de la période de la construction de la nation italienne, seront ici mobilisées pour faire émerger des lectures originales et présenter des pensées méconnues.

    Incontri su Dante

    Argomento dell'incontro è il linguaggio che risuona nella terza cantica: tema 'doppio', da intendersi sia nel senso delle peculiari modalità espressive cui fa ricorso il poeta, giunto alla fase conclusiva della sua fatica, sia nel senso delle forme con cui è la dimensione paradisiaca stessa a 'parlare', non solo per verba, ma anche e soprattutto tramite coreografie di luce, preghiere equivalenti a musica, stupende visioni.

    Trade and exchange in Venice through the prism of artistic production (12th-18th century)

    25 century of Venitian art history

    L’histoire de la République de Venise s’écrit en suivant le cours de ses échanges avec les cités ou empires voisins et concurrents. Le séminaire s’attachera aux témoignages matériels qui proviennent directement ou non de ces intenses échanges, en faisant une place initiale aux récits visuels de ce contexte maritime, tant commercial que militaire, et aux représentations de leurs manifestations festives et ambassades. Il évoquera l’histoire des lieux qui accueillirent ce commerce, leur chantier de construction et les réaménagements urbains dont ils firent l’objet, mais aussi les palais, églises, retables et décors qui manifestèrent la fortune des négociants vénitiens, la puissance de leurs corporations et la place des communautés étrangères.

    The social dimensions of cognitive cartography

    Cartotête fourth study day

    Cognitive representations of geographical space are often studied in order to better understand how individuals perceive and deal with everyday spatial problems (Down and Stea, 1977), including orientation, trip planning or navigation. Since these works focus particularly on the functional dimension of such spatial representations, maps are read in a literal, rather than metaphorical perspective. In addition, individual geographical experiences, both direct (trips and visited places) or indirect (spatial information) is considered as the main factor contributing to their construction. Therefore, this “cognitive tool” is essentially considered as an individual and personal construction.
