    Collaborative practices: rethinking narratives and musealization processes

    “Práticas da História. Journal on Theory, Historiography, and Uses of the Past”

    Since the 1960s, different scientific fields have brought the collective construction of science to the center of their debates. In this context, the importance of different narratives, actors, and worldviews for scientific construction gains special attention. Public history, community archeology, and collaborative museology are some of the fields born out of this movement, and its scientific practices have intertwined in projects focused on political demands and social transformations. Aligned with the field of history, this dossier intends to question the intrinsic links between the constitution of hegemonic historical narratives, the construction of homeland histories in the emergence and consolidation of National States, and the emergence of museological institutions as places of construction and consolidation of the Authorized Discourses of Heritage.

    Immobilizing the Gaze: the Visual Fabrication of Events in the Early Modern Period

    The aim of this conference is to build a transdisciplinary dialogue to explore how certain perceptions create certain images, convey information and its interpretation(s) around the “event”, broadly understood here as an occurrence perceived as significant, whether it is singular or part of a sequence or even a series of sequences (assassination, conclave, embassy, battle, jubilee, canonization...). The focus is placed on the early modern period because the increase of writing and the greater circulation of images and information “fixed” events on an unprecedented scale; often, these new ways of viewing events were forged thousands of kilometers away from the place where the event occurred. Rome and the Italian peninsula in the sixteenth century will be at the heart of our interrogations both as represented space(s) and as place(s) of projections onto the world.

    Objects of Law in the Medieval and Early Modern Worlds

    Materials and texts function in a variety of ways in legal contexts, they forge diplomatic ties, grant gifts of land, levy taxes, regulate markets, etc. The connection between the materiality of artefacts and the law are multiple, their very nature conveyed information, performed authority, and communicated authenticity. The conference Objects of Law proposes thinking more deeply about the artistic practices that shaped the materiality, iconography, and texts of legal objects in the medieval and early modern period. Objects of Law seeks dialogue between scholars working in art history, history, archaeology, legal history, and related disciplines that deal with legal objects.

    A Different Perspective for the Atlantic Routes

    Impressions and Exchanges in Transoceanic Journeys from the 16th to the 19th Century

    After more than two years of a preparation that have been careful and laborious, but slowed down and hindered several times by the difficulties that have arisen due to the global pandemic, this project finally gets underway. It intends to go back once more to questioning issues that already count important in-depth studies, like the transoceanic relations between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, but also has the ambition of wanting to integrate the results already obtained with new reflections and achievements, and above all with a different point of view.

    Migration and the construction of social stratifications

    A Bourdieusian approach on migrants’ positionalities in European societies

    This call aims to gather papers that investigate migrants’ insertion into European societies drawing inspiration from Bourdieu’s analysis. The 21st IMISCOE (International Migration Research Network) conference has reflexivity as its theme. It is arguable that few other sociological thinkers put the issue of epistemological reflexivity at the centre of their theoretical framework than Bourdieu. This entailed a reflexivity of both the position of the theorist, and connected with this, the concepts that they were using in order to understand and explain the social world. Such a reflexivity would of course also extend to the concepts used by migration scholars.

    Some Case Studies from the Roman and Late Antique Periods

    The collection of case studies which were presented in 2018 and 2020 as part of the DANUBIUS project gave rise to a whole series of new historical questions and unexpected results. Some of the main elements of the dossier will be published in a supplement to the Frontière·s journal. The aim of this call for papers is to complete this dossier with some new cases studies, mainly for the regions that were not represented or less represented during the 2018 and 2020 workshops: Britain, Gaul, Germany, Caucasus, North-Eastern Anatolia, the Middle East and Egypt.

    A Space for ‘Place’ in Social Sciences

    Young Scholars workshop in Paris

    Territoriality or ‘place’ is a ubiquitous condition of human life. Yet, political, economic and sociological studies of place are rarely labeled as such and the field of study is fragmented across the social sciences. This two-day workshop provides young scholars the space to present and exchange their research on the role of ‘place’ in social sciences. We aim at kickstarting a transdisciplinary discussion by bringing together various perspectives of place-sensitive research. In doing so we help early career researchers to gather experience, inspire each other and build transdisciplinary networks. Additional funding from the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI) would increase the inclusivity of the workshop and enrich the collective discussion. Specifically, it would enable us to offer travel scholarships to students from disadvantaged universities, fields, and backgrounds, or with limited funding.

    1715-1716: The Apex of Jacobitism?

    Origins, Representations, and Legacies: Essays in Honour of Daniel Szechi

    This collection of essays, entitled ’1715-16 : The Apex of Jacobitism ? Origins, Representations and Legacies’, in honour of the life work of Professor Daniel Szechi aims to re-evaluate the 1715 rising in its broader international context and within the heritage of the long eighteenth century. Contributors who have encountered the Jacobite rising in their respective fields, for example, while studying its industrial, intellectual, and scholarly impact from the Treaty of Union to the present, are invited to propose their contributions. As Jacobitism was a ubiquitous landmark of the eighteenth century, researchers are invited to question the military, political, literary, and/or cultural significance of the rising. The editors are particularly interested in consequential research on the rising through a comparative perspective in the interdisciplinary fields of literature, material culture, and travel or media studies.

    The Thinking of the Image

    Interdisciplinary approaches to imagery and imagination

    What shall we call an “image”? Is it that from which knowledge proceeds or that which anticipates knowledge? Is image something only able to be recognised as object of thinking or it shows per se, in its polysemy and equivocal constitution, a deep, still unexplored generative form of thinking? From the point of view of the understanding of the digital age, where we entered in, to a strong consideration of the new frontiers of science, knowledge, and philosophy and from here up to societal and cultural dimensions, the thinking of the image still remain an enigma.The aim of the international conference is, perhaps for the first time, to study and to explore in a genuine interdisciplinary approach the multiversal horizon of human imagery and, in particular its constructive, generative capacity of building a world-meaning.

    Computing The Human

    The aim of this conference is to open a discussion on the topic of “computing the human.” It is intended as a “melting pot” for interdisciplinary debate reflecting the complexity of the issues : cultural history of computing, human-computer interaction (HCI), and emotion programming, all framed by the ethos of diversity and inclusion in computing and artificial intelligence. Contributions are welcomed that focus on the ideas, analyses, and technologies that materialize the visions in various time-spaces, including laboratories, artistic performances and exhibitions, archives, digital spaces, the imagination of more-than-human worlds, artificial bodies and computed emotions, ethical dilemmas and statements, and regulations. The discussion will be fed with concrete research cases, fieldwork, projects, and analyses.

    Beyond Digital Humanities

    How computational methods are reshaping scholarly research

    In the last decade the Digital Humanities (DH) movement has swept the academic landscape in the United States, Europe and China, DH has become a new mantra. However, we argue that the real transformative power transcends the broad DH label, rooted in the depth and specificity of computational methodologies. By critically examining examples drawn from disciplines like history, literature, and sociology, we highlight how computational methods offer both macroscopic and microscopic insights, reshaping the very essence of research.
