    Controversies over Methods in European Union law

    This series of seminars aims at providing an overview of different methods in European Union law, both old and new, both mainstream and not, by putting them in perspective with each other and by questioning their underlying assumptions. In order to do so, participants are expected to engage in a reflexive exercise that will make their methods and their position in the controversy explicit: What methods do they use and what do these methods imply? With whom and against whom do they think European Union law? Do they find it useful to exhume an author that in their view has been unduly neglected or, on the contrary, to call for new approaches to understand EU law?

    Conference, symposium - History

    The Myth of Versailles and European Courts, 17th and 20th centuries

    Ce colloque est organisé dans le cadre du programme « Identités curiales et le mythe de Versailles en Europe : perceptions, adhésions et rejets (XVIIIe-XIXe siècle) » mené par le centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Il a pour objectif d’analyser le modus operandi du mythe de Versailles dans l’Europe monarchique des XVIIIe, XIXe et XXe siècles, en prenant en compte les deux éléments contradictoires mais complémentaires qui caractérisent cette notion : le réel et la reconstruction du réel. L’enjeu sera donc double : cerner comment les différents aspects propres à l’identité de Versailles ont pu nourrir un imaginaire, mais aussi saisir la manière dont cet imaginaire a pu susciter d’autres réalisations – architecturales, rituelles, politiques.

    Concevoir la ville de demain

    The way we live in the 21st century and recent health events have changed the traditional organisation of public space in the city. The social and cultural dimension has been particularly affected. Population flows and their circulation, the organisation of individual and common spaces must be rethought in order to find harmony for everyone. Faced with new ecological, health, social and economic developments, we ask an essential question: What is the city of today made of? How can we build the city of tomorrow?

    La cour se met au vert. Mises en valeur et usages politiques des campagnes entre Moyen Âge et pré-modernité

    The Court escapes from Town. The countryside as political asset from the Middle Ages to the early Modern Period

    The idea of heading off to the countryside is associated nowadays with a wish to get away from a stressful, noisy, and at times oppressive and foul-smelling urban environment, to rest in peace and quiet, in healthy surroundings, in close contact with the bounties of the natural world and animals in their “natural” habitat. Far from any anachronistic intent, applying this expression to court studies is a call to scholars to adopt interdisciplinary approaches to examine the many ways in which aristocratic circles related to and interacted with their rural environment.

    L’esclavage en Afrique : savoirs et décloisonnements

    Slavery in Africa: Knowledge and Openings

    Research on slavery in Africa has benefited from a clear dynamism in recent years, supported, partly, by international research programmes as well as by the publication of many works of reference. The international conference to which our institutions invite researchers and teachers is intended to contribute to this assessment of knowledge about slavery in Africa and to take stock of the most recent significant scientific advances. With an approach promoting interdisciplinary scientific dialogue (history, anthropology, sociology, museology) and dialogue with civil society (through the attendance of anti-slavery associations), the ambition here is to continue efforts to break down barriers between the various regions of the African continent, their historiographies and their stakeholders.

    From Liège to Strasbourg. New Research on the German-French Border Region During the High and Late Middle Ages (11th–16th Century)

    In the High and Late Middle Ages, the border region between the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire was a dynamic space not only in terms of territorial politics, but also in economic, religious, social and cultural terms, which always requires cross-border work in historical research. Despite this elementary precondition, there is currently a lack of cross-national and cross-language exchange, especially for young academics. In order to meet this need, we would like to invite MA graduates and young researchers to present their current research projects to a professional audience and to discuss them within the setting of a young researchers’ conference.

    Call for papers - Geography

    Territories and politics of animalities

    Critical animal geographies between domination and resistance

    Animal geographies are part of the social sciences research that question the relationship between humans and other animals. Often qualified as the study of "Human/Animal" relations, these scientific productions have been the object of cleavages since the emergence of theories-practices critical of both the speciesism of these scientific designations, and of a detachment of researchers from social struggles. Within a total liberation framework, Critical Animal Studies integrate animal exploitation with other forms of domination, demonstrating their consubstantiality and interdependence. This call for papers aims to enrich the reflections about and also the gestures carried in the antispeciesist geographies.

    Objectivity in social sciences, a regulating ideal?

    The goal of this issue of the C@hiers du CRHiDI is to invite young researchers to interrogate the notion of objectivity in respect to their personal research and field of study. Moreover, it will tend to create, thanks to practical applications, a panel of different approaches used in the social and human sciences regarding objectivity.

    Psychanalyse et histoire culturelle

    Échanges et confrontation

    Ce dossier de la Revue d’histoire culturelle (XVIIIe-XXIe siècles) intitulé « Psychanalyse et histoire culturelle : échanges et confrontation » présente de la façon la plus explicite et la plus concrète possible les traverses entre sciences humaines et sociales, histoire culturelle et psychanalyse. Il comprend un préalable : le recours à l’hypothèse de l’inconscient ne consiste pas à psychologiser les faits sociaux et culturels mais à dégager l’envers inconscient du fait collectif. Au-delà, il y a là un véritable enjeu pour les sciences humaines et sociales autour des liens entre sujet, symboles et représentations.

    Issue 26.1

    Le Bulletin du Centre d’études médiévales d’Auxerre (BUCEMA) est une revue scientifique à comité de lecture consacrée aux études sur le Moyen Âge. Fidèle à son principe de diffusion de la recherche en train de se faire et librement accessible, le BUCEMA continue à mettre l’accent sur l’interdisciplinarité ‐ sciences humaines et sociales, sciences de la nature et mathématiques ‐ comme le meilleur moyen d’inventer une nouvelle médiévistique. Il est particulièrement intéressé par les contributions proposant des nouvelles méthodes, faisant état d’expériences dans le domaine des humanités numériques (digital humanities) et des nouvelles technologies, s’interrogeant sur les implications épistémologiques et conceptuelles des recherches sur le Moyen Âge.

    Port governance: power, interests, representations

    Scientific interest in the theme of port governance has arisen with a renewed political interest in the maritime area (but also river) in France in recent years. It follows in particular the tabling of a Bill on the governance and performance of French seaports and its adoption at first reading by the senatorial assembly on December 8, 2020, as well as the presentation of the “Strategy national port ” to the Interministerial Committee for the Sea (CImer) on January 22, 2021 by the French government.

    The Antiquity and its receptions

    The Summerschool “The Antiquity and its receptions” is  open to doctoral and advanced MA students, specializing in history, art history, archaeology, philology, or any other discipline linked with the theme of the reception of Antiquity. It is international in nature and aims to establish a multilingual dialogue (French, Italian and English) between the different methodologies in use in Europe, North America and elsewhere, and thus to promote interdisciplinarity. At the same time, it plans to test these methodologies in the field, in collaboration with heritage institutions such as museums, archaeological sites, archives and libraries in Rome and Tivoli.
