    Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries

    As part of its research programme “Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The court was a microcosm of society under the Ancien Régime. The royal family and the great noblemen were not only in each other’s company, but they also rubbed shoulders with a whole crowd of office-holders of greater or lesser importance, who ensured the smooth running of this mechanism.

    The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles

    As part of its research programme “The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Five themes will contribute to the ideas about ways in which these galleries can be made more accessible to the public. Indeed, in spite of its gaps, this collection offers strong evidence of a specific view of the history of France that the Museum of the Palace of Versailles should analyse and question today.

    Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)

    As part of its research programme “Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Research will be organised along five different lines, through which the idea of the “perfect court”, such as we find at Versailles, can be defined: organisational model, public and private areas in the residence, reigning and governing in Europe, palace and democracy, State and palace rituals.

    The edges of species

    Frontière·s. Revue d’archéologie, histoire et histoire de l’art

    Greek and Roman mythologies are populated by hybrid creatures borrowing physical characteristics from both humans and animals, as illustrated by the well-known examples of the Sphinx, the Faun, or the Minotaur. These imaginary hybridisations cross the permeable boundary that separates humans from animals. The affirmation of human exceptionality progressively allowed Greek philosophy to raise and isolate Man within the animal kingdom. Nevertheless, ancient and medieval literature, ethnography and zoology continued to question the interspecific boundaries not as a radical dissociation but as a porous limit, a grey zone with multiple gradients of humanity and animality, of which mythological hybridity is only one manifestation. For this eighth issue, the authors are invited to question the boun- daries between non-human animal species, but also between the animal and human species.

    Respire

    Esthétique de la respiration et culture de la qualité de l’air

    In the vast atmosphere, I breathe the air inside my house, the air in my garden, on my street, in my city. What air does each of us breathe? The whole environment we inhabit: from our objects and our spaces to the products of human activity. Air quality relies on the material reality of our environments. It speaks to the senses, echoes in the development of our perception and requires the ability to acknowledge it. The “Respire” (Breathe) conference aims at exploring new ways of knowing the air we breathe and developing a sensitive culture of various qualities of air; presenting projects which explore ways to reconnect with a sensory perception of the air. Structured around three axes, the conference will question the relation between measuring tools and sensory perception, somatic and artistic research on breathing, research on “breathing” materials, and design and atmospheric architecture projects.

    Pierre Jeanneret, l’architecte et le constructeur - doctorats en architecture ou en histoire de l’architecture

    Sont recherché·e·s deux deux doctorant·e·s dans le cadre du projet de recherche « Pierre Jeanneret, l'architecte et le constructeur ». Le projet de recherche vise à produire une connaissance nouvelle et originale sur la production et l’œuvre de l’architecte Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967). Remarquable tant par la cohérence de sa démarche, que par l’intelligence des stratégies de matérialisation déployées, l’œuvre de Pierre Jeanneret présente une envergure exceptionnelle, portée par un engagement social sans faille toute échelle confondue, du mobilier à la ville. Les outils de l’histoire matérielle et de l’histoire culturelle seront convoqués pour éclairer la complexité de l’œuvre de Pierre Jeanneret et en reveler la richesse. À ce jour, elle n’a pas fait l’objet d’une investigation exhaustive.

    Making with the milieu


    Art, design and the mediality of landscape

    This call for paper deals with the ways of making the landscape in art and design and in the media. A symbolic revolution is currently at work, and we would like to report on it and anticipate its possibilities. The Anthropocene paradigm calls for a new conception of the notion of project, understood as the conduct of valuation in relation to the living. More broadly, it is a question of measuring and thinking about the stakes of the present situation by revising the "project values", that is, the relations between situations, means and ends from an ethical, political and aesthetic point of view.

    Portrait lessons

    « Journal des anthropologues »

    This dossier is an invitation to gather, sometimes twist and distend a series of portraits, of people or things, known or unknown, ordinary or prestigious, and make them speak as much of themselves as beyond themselves, expressing the weight of the social world they carry, of the sorrows and happinesses they have torn away or arranged. Its aim is  both  thinking complexity through looking through the keyhole and revealing an illusion, a lack of, a futility.

    Museum Storytelling: Collectiong Sotries, Inventing Narratives

    Museography or expography are increasingly thought of in terms of narrative, storytelling, and even self-narrative. While exhibitions and museums seem to want to address the affect and the senses as much as the intellect of the visitors, to whom they wish to not only transmit knowledge as well as propose a visit experience, the stories proposed and the spaces where they are inscribed are changing under the influence of the “narrative turn” as observed since the 1990s, as well the “visual turn” and the “affective turn,” which for the last two decades have been jointly influencing the humanities. In keeping with Leslie Bedford’s assertion in The Curator. The Museum Journal that “telling stories” is “the real work of museums” (2001), this international symposium proposes to map the new expositional practices of museums — collecting, archiving, scenography, website, communication on social media, production of texts — and the types of narratives that they revive, reinvent, or bring out.

    How Environmentalist Mobilizations Shape Buildings, Cities and Landscapes

    Continuing on the set of concerns explored in issue number 11, “Thinking about Architecture through its Resources,” this issue of Cahiers de la recherche architecturale, urbaine et paysagère (CRAUP) also addresses the ways in which ecological questions affect the design of inhabited spaces, however, it seeks contributions that focus more specifically on the interactions between architectural, urban and landscape professions and citizen-led environmental mobilizations.
