    Des femmes militantes (Italie, 1820-1922)

    Attivismo femminile (Italia, 1820-1922)

    Ce colloque entend explorer les différentes activités militantes par lesquelles les femmes ont participé à la vie politique du début du XIXe siècle à la « première vague féministe » (1865-1920), dans cette période de transformation de la péninsule italienne et de naissance d’un nouvel État national, qualifiée aujourd’hui de « long Risorgimento ». Il entend réfléchir au thème du militantisme féminin pendant cette période non seulement en termes de genre, mais aussi de choix, c’est-à-dire à la participation au sens large, à la fois aux batailles et sur les barricades, aux luttes armées, mais aussi aux idées et aux débats politiques qui ont accompagné la naissance de l’Italie contemporaine. L’intention est de privilégier l’analyse des réseaux, en suivant non seulement des itinéraires individuels, mais aussi des exemples de militantisme collectif, qui émergent à travers l’analyse des espaces et des formes de relations dans la sphère publique.

    Antimilitarisme et société en Italie (1970-2020)

    Depuis la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale, les USA sont présents militairement en Italie, notamment en Sardaigne et en Sicile qui, en raison de leur position stratégique dans la Méditerranée, sont des lieux centraux de décisions, d’opérations et d’exercices militaires, en lien avec les conflits internationaux (au Moyen-Orient, en Afrique du Nord, ou encore au Yemen pour le conflit russo-ukrainien). Cette journée d’étude et de débats vise à comprendre comment ces mouvements et collectifs travaillent à la transmission de leurs luttes et à leur réactualisation dans le panorama militant du pays.

    Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico

    V edizione

    Following the successful results of last year's series of seminars, the PhD students belonging to the Anthropology of the Ancient World curriculum of the PhD course in Classics and Archeology would like to promote a fifth cycle of seminars of the series Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico. The series is characterised by a particular interest in the different methodologies and research perspectives which represent the main fields of enquiry of anthropology of the ancient world since its first development (with the works of Gernet, Vernant and Detienne), but it also focuses on how different inter-discipliary approaches can contribute to its constant innovation. In addition, one of the main goals of this year's edition is to create a meeting point for scholarship on antiquity and contemporary debate on its reception in modern societies, underlining the cultural, social and ideological aspects which spark from the interection between present and past.

    Claude Lefort entre insurgence et institution

    Premier colloque consacré à Claude Lefort en Italie, « Claude Lefort fra insorgenza e istituzione » entend questionner la pensée de Lefort en se concentrant sur les instruments qu’elle nous fournit pour comprendre les sociétés démocratiques de notre époque. Au cours des deux jours de travaux, il sera question de revenir aux racines phénoménologiques de la philosophie de Lefort ainsi que à sa relation avec le marxisme pour saisir les tensions qui travaillent son idée d’institution politique du social et ses conceptions du pouvoir et du conflit. Dans le même esprit, d’autres sessions seront consacrées à la spécificité de la pensée lefortienne à travers des comparaisons avec des philosophes contemporains comme Arendt, Rancière et Gauchet, et à travers la lecture de penseurs du passé comme La Boétie et Tocqueville.

    Crise des réfugiés ukrainiens versus méditerranéens

    Des politiques en crise ou des promesses dans la question migratoire ?

    The war in Ukraine has provoked an unprecedented humanitarian surge. The various actors: governments, NGOs, associations, civil societies are organizing themselves to offer assistance to Ukrainian refugees. The European Union is applying a 2001 directive, which allows for the granting of temporary protection status in order to guarantee rapid access to rights: right of residence, access to work, to healthcare, to housing, education... to a stay in decent and safe conditions. These exceptional conditions granted to refugees contrast with the conditions of Mediterranean refugees. It is in this context that the United Nations human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, welcomes this humanitarian solidarity but also recalls that other migrants and refugees are often faced with refoulement and criminalization at the EU's borders and beyond.

    Summer School - Early modern

    Les pierres de Venise

    XXVe séminaire d’histoire de l’art Vénitien (2022)

    Née modestement de la rencontre du sable et de l’eau, Venise a crû, en un miracle, jusqu’à devenir au fil du temps « le plus prodigieux événement urbanistique existant sur terre » (Le Corbusier). Cet essaim d’édifices posés en îlots compose aussi un mirage de pierre tant la cité de bâtisseurs s’est heurtée à l’éloignement de toute bonne carrière de pierre, obligeant à recourir à la pierre plutôt en parement sur des structures de briques, et à se tourner naturellement vers le remploi de pierres d’anciens monuments. Étudier les Pierres de Venise (1851), c’est donc revenir sur l’histoire d’un défi constructif et architectural, depuis la quête et l’acheminement des matériaux, des ruines d’Altino aux carrières d’Istrie, et l’organisation des métiers lapidaires (tagiapiera, scultori, terrazzieri), jusqu’à la réalisation des façades, ponts, puits, margelles, escaliers…

    Architectural Design Competitions in Europe from the 15th to 21st centuries –an Overview

    While not entirely ignored, the question of architectural design competitions seems to have been largely underestimated by contemporary historiography, although these competitions have marked the history of western architecture since, basically, the famous competition of 1418 in view of the construction of the cupola of the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral in Florence – this is only to mention the modern era.

    Leçons pour penser et concevoir un monde plus habitable

    Ces journées d’étude organisées par l’École nationale supérieure d'architecture de Lyon ont une double ambition : offrir un nouvel éclairage sur les apports théoriques de cette figure féminine majeure de l’architecture du XXe siècle ; explorer les résonances de son œuvre éditoriale, dessinée et construite avec des préoccupations contemporaines qui touchent au rapport au paysage et au vivant, à l’habitabilité du monde, et au retour à une pratique de l’architecture plus proche des savoirs artisanaux.

    Between ethics and semiotics. Signs and nature in the Anthropocene era

    “Filosofi(e)Semiotiche” journal (Il Sileno Edizioni), volume 9, n. 1, 2022

    The Anthropocene, unlike other previous eras, is commonly recognized as the era in which the impact of human beings is most incisive in determining the dynamics of the climate and the planet in which we live. With this Call we intend, therefore, to highlight some aspects of the Anthropocene in order to suggest a rethinking of the relationship between human nature and the surrounding environment ; this will allow us to specify how ethics and semiotics can be used in a rethinking of these two categories, and, in general, of the link between language and nature, which inevitably involves the need to review our ways of “making world”.

    The environment of history

    Diacronie. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea

    The environment of history is a space in the journal “Diacronie. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea” intended to reflect in a historical perspective on one of the most characterizing themes of recent years, the environmental issue. In this space we wish to host contributions that approach environmental history from a wide spectrum of interpretations. We welcome approaches based on its most classical meaning, as a historical discipline that investigates the relationship between humans and the environment and combines different disciplinary fields, and approaches that foreground new themes, scales of analysis and methodologies.

    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.

    Assist and Unify? Nation Building and Welfare in the Upper Adriatic and Eastern Baltic Sea Region in the 20th Century

    Monographic issue of «Qualestoria. Rivista di storia contemporanea»

    Questioning the primacy of the nation-state, a special issue of Qualestoria to be published in December 2022 aims to analyze how different welfare practices have represented a tool of nation-building in territories contested by various national groups or states. To what extent have different political contexts affected the use of welfare for nation-building purposes? What role have welfare practices played in strengthening the position of the titular nation or in attempting to integrate/assimilate minorities? What outcomes have “bottom-up” initiatives propelled? The special issue will try answer these questions with a focus on the eastern Baltic Sea region and the Upper Adriatic. Contributions related to other east central European areas will also be considered.
