    Gesture and Belief: routes, transfers and intermediality

    In the last decades, the body’s role and its agency have gained new centrality in the analysis of the religious experience. Through its connection with materiality, the religious expression surpasses the spiritual to be understood as a chain of relationships and encounters between bodies, objects and sensory stimuli. Accordingly, under the premise of “routes, transfers and intermediality”, this event seeks innovative readings on subjects that discuss, question and rethink dynamics of circulation, transmission and alterity, through an exchange of ideas and objects of study, which crosses borders and disciplines.

    Représentation du désir féminin : entre texte et image

    Numéro 10 de la revue électronique Litter@ Incognita

    La revue en ligne Litter@ Incognita, pour son dixième numéro, invite les chercheur·se·s et jeunes chercheur·se·s de toute discipline à interroger la relations entre l’articulation texte/image et le désir féminin. Elle propose aux contributeur·rice·s de se pencher sur des productions culturelles, notamment intermédiales et transmédiales, qui déjouent les représentations textuelles, visuelles ou psychiques conventionnelles pour mieux interroger les modalités complexes de représentation du désir sexuel féminin, et d'étudier ce que l’articulation entre le texte (écrit ou oral) et l’image (visuelle ou mentale) permet aux femmes dans la représentation et l’expression de leurs désirs sexuels.

    Transnational dimensions of dealing with the past in ‘Third Wave’ democracies

    Southern Europe, Central Eastern Europe, and the Former Soviet Union in Global Perspective

    This conference aims to fill the gap by looking at how post-dictatorial justice and memory experiences in Southern Europe, Central Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union after the “third wave of democratization” have reciprocally affected each other. It also seeks to unpack how memorialization practices in these regions were shaped by and influenced in turn criminalization discourses in other geographical contexts (Latin America, Asia, Africa). The conference focuses on transnational activism, transfers of knowledge, and expertise at bilateral, regional or international levels, the impact of legal and mnemonic narratives outside their countries of origin, and the role of international organizations and NGO's in dealing with mass violence. The conference aims thus to trace the mutlidirectional circulation of ideas, norms and models of reckoning with authoritarian regimes both within these regions, and between them and other areas of the world.

    Beyond the “White Man’s Burden”?

    Representations of the “Far East” in the English-Speaking World since World War II

    This one-day workshop seeks to examine the shifting image of the “Far East” in the English-speaking world, including - but not limited to - news, film, museums, exhibitions, travel literature and television. In part, it seeks to complement the study of media representations with a tentative assessment of their reception, and by examining the overlapping areas between media representations and historical events. The period since the Second World War has seen profound changes in the “Far East”, notably because of decolonization, the creation of independent nation-states and the increasing power of China, Japan and India. This workshop will examine the persistence (or not) of the “white man’s burden” in a post-imperial age.

    Freedom, Equality… for Everyone? Women Fighting for Social Advancement 1700-1918

    The Historical Institute of the University of Wroclaw, together with the Institutes of English Studies and Romance Studies invite all interested in the subject to participate in the forthcoming conference. The first words of the topic invoke the slogan of the French Revolution which aimed at democratizing society and, consequently, changing the old-world order. These postulates would seem to remain valid today, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, which contributed significantly to the progressive implementation of Enlightenment ideas, the enshrinement of the right to vote for women, and the establishment of gender equality in the majority of European countries. Although attempts to improve women’s position in society can be observed throughout history, we would like to concentrate our discussion on “the long 18th and 19th centuries”, as that era’s political, economic, and – most importantly – mental transformations set the stage for 20th-century breakthroughs.

    Postes de doctorant·e·s pour le projet de recherche “Gangs, Gangsters, and Ganglands: Towards a Global Comparative Ethnography” (GANGS)

    The project “Gangs, Gangsters, and Ganglands: Towards a Global Comparative Ethnography” (GANGS) aims to develop a systematic comparative investigation of global gang dynamics, to better understand why they emerge, how they evolve over time, whether they are associated with particular urban configurations, how and why individuals join gangs, and what impact this has on their potential futures. It draws on ethnographic research carried out in Nicaragua, South Africa, and France, adopting an explicitly tripartite focus on “Gangs”, “Gangsters”, and “Ganglands” in order to better explore the interplay between group, individual, and contextual factors. The first will consider the organisational dynamics of gangs, the second will focus on individual gang members and their trajectories before, during, and after their involvement in a gang, while the third will reflect on the contexts within which gangs emerge and evolve.

    Frictions and friendships

    Cultural encounters in the nineteenth century

    The exhibition The Dutch in Paris, which was on show in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam and in the Petit Palais, Paris during the fall of 2017 and spring of 2018 respectively, aimed to visualize the artistic exchange between Dutch and French artists between 1789 and 1914. As part of a larger research project, set up by the RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History, the exhibition generated so much response that ESNA, in collaboration with the RKD and NWO, decided to organize an international conference on the subject, focusing specifically on international as well as national and local points of encounter and how they facilitated artistic exchange.

    The epoch of space. State and new perspectives

    For centuries, the study of time was one of the main academic interests in the field of Humanities. However, in the second half of the 20th century, most scholars and philosophers shifted their focus to the question of space. The interest in studying this in the field of the arts has increased significantly in recent years, and is especially noticeable in the case of literary creations.The growing influence of Ecocriticism and Geocriticism is especially noticeable in digital humanities. The bridges recently built between these fields are already proving to be productive, as they have led to the development of new tools, approaches, and methodologies, such as deep mapping techniques and the spatial humanities. How have the disciplines evolved in recent years? Do we need to redefine the key concepts regarding space and place? Has our relationship with territory changed? Have we produced new ways of inhabiting space?

    Global Ethics of Compromise

    What are the normative assumptions and solutions proposed to develop morally right or wrong compromise typologies? Can we develop a universal ethics of compromise or does compromise vary depending on the socio-cultural history of a country? To what extent is culture relevant in shaping types and norms of compromise? The conference aims, firstly, to understand how to distinguish a compromise from a compromise of principles; what constitutes an ethical or fair compromise? Second, it will analyze if practices of compromise vary from one country to another. To do so, different types of compromise will be explored through geopolitical, philosophical, historical approaches, with a particular focus on Japan and Taiwan. This symposium will examine theoretical issues and practices associated with compromise, by adopting a global perspective. It will bring together contributions from European, American and Asian researchers.
