    Transformations rurales au Maghreb : pratiques, acteurs et enjeux

    Les transformations des campagnes au cours de l’histoire maghrébine ont représenté l’un des sujets- objets de recherche les plus importants dans le débat scientifique de ces dernières décennies et ce, dans diverses disciplines telles que l’histoire, la géographie, la sociologie, la psychologie sociale, l’économie, l’anthropologie, les sciences agricoles, l’urbanisme, les sciences de l’énergie, etc. Mais malgré cet intérêt multidisciplinaire, tout chercheur traitant le monde rural est confronté au problème de sa définition conceptuelle, problème qui reste encore entier.

    Conference, symposium - Ethnology, anthropology

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity


    The conference aims to study the hungarian folk movement called “táncházmozgalom” (“dance house movement”). In 2022, this movement celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the first “táncház” (“dance house”, type of traditional dance ball), held in Budapest on the 6th of May 1972. The process of “learning by doing” is a central dynamic to the personal investment of the youngsters in this movement, during the music and dance lessons as well as during the táncházak (dance houses), koncertek (concerts) and táborok (camps). The dance house movement is also very much marked by hungarian ethnography of the XXth century. The practices of dancing and music are anchored in the consulting of numerous works and archives of ethnographic collections from the last century. As such, the “táncházmozgalom” is often called “revival movement” since it brings melodies and steps of rural folk music back up to date in the modern and urban context of Budapest.

    The Becoming of the Congo: Collaborating, Imagining, Changing

    This new edition of the Congo Research Network (CRN) international and transdisciplinar Congress focuses on the concept of becoming: the becoming of research on/around the Congo (new paths and new links between knowledge andepistemologies, new means of communication (ICTs, new media, videos) and agents - academics,artists, writers, cultural actors, journalists and bloggers, activists and others); the becoming of Congolese culture (new places of creation and exhibition, new ways ofsharing/transmitting knowledge and cultural practices); the becoming of the country and the dynamics of mobility and stability not only in Congo, but also in Africa and the world (anthropological, climatic, epistemic, social, health and economic changes); the becoming of politics, between trauma, memory and resilience.

    Summer School - Middle Ages

    The Middle Ages High and Low: intersections, interactions, debates between academic knowledge and pop culture

    Medieval studies and medievalism both focus on the same object, the Middle Ages. Yet their approaches are different. Long separated, medieval studies and medievalism are now challenged to rethink their links in research, teaching and social dissemination of knowledge. The summer school aims to help young researchers to strengthen their understanding of these scientific developments, to position their research effectively, and to develop networks with international researchers. The school, in French and English, proposes lectures by world-renowned specialists, debates, meetings with professionals and practical workshops.

    Pierre Bourdieu and History

    Influences, inspirations, interactions

    The French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu died in 2002. His work continues to be highly influential, as evidenced by an ongoing editorial activity and the international dissemination of his writings. While Bourdieu left his mark on many intellectual areas through the breadth of his theories, he established a privileged dialogue with history as a discipline. Twenty years later, this conference aims to shed further light on the links between history, historians, and Bourdieu’s scientific legacy.

    Gaits, dis-continuities, scansions. Forms of life in a situation of chronic illness/disability

    La place que prennent la maladie chronique ou certaines situations de handicap dans la vie quotidienne et la manière dont elles semblent s’entrelacer avec l’existence, dans ses dimensions biologique, sociale et existentielle ont conduit certains chercheurs en sciences humaines et sociales à parler de « vécu chronique » ou encore « chronic living » pour tenter de saisir dans leur spécificité la vie et le vécu des personnes atteintes d’une ou plusieurs maladies de longue durée et non guérissables ou dans certaines situations de handicap.Ce colloque vise à discuter l’apport de la réflexion en termes de formes de vie, et à comprendre dans quelle mesure elles constituent des cadres conceptuels et normatifs appropriés pour comprendre la condition chronique et l'aspiration à une « vie normale », une « vie comme avant », une « vie ordinaire » parfois exprimée dans ce contexte.

    Return to animality: theoretical perspectives, cultural approaches and artistic manifestations

    In the context of ontological uncertainty, but also of the tragic collapse of biodiversity and the environment, in which preoccupations for the future of man and his relationship with other species increase, how shall one preserve a definition of human being? It is thus pressing to reflect on the future of humanity from new perspectives that might assume a return to a certain animality or even to a reanimalization of man. The aim of this colloquium is to create a plural and interdisciplinary space for reflection on these issues, calling for a dialogue between different perspectives and disciplines.

    Diplomatic Gifts and Counter-Gifts (16th-early 20th c)

    Understandings and Misunderstandings between Britain and the Muslim East, 16th to Early 20th Century

    As symbolic commodities circulating within and across cultures, gifts offer rich and multiple perspectives on the conduct of international diplomacy and its corollary cross-cultural transactions. Taking as our focus diplomatic relations between Britain and the three Muslim systems of the Ottomans, Persians, and Mughals over a period ranging from early contacts in the 16th century to the high age of the British empire, we wish to map out the shifts of paradigms and the redefinitions of circuits of allegiance and power through objects over the longue durée.

    Towards a good life society: when interdependencies confront atomism

    In 2018, the Forum's scientific symposium dealt with the collective definition of the well-living (or the good life, among other terms), the methods and uses of good life indicators, along with citizen participation and the contribution of research to the good life. Building on these achievements, the second edition of the scientific symposium aims to go a step further towards exploring how a paradigm shift in favor of the good life might be supported, by emphasizing the topic of interdependencies.

    Voyageurs réels et imaginaires latino-américains en Algérie et le monde arabe (XIXe et XXe siècles)

    Les études sur la culture du monde arabe et ses rapports avec la civilisation, l’histoire, et les arts latino-américains à partir du XIXe siècle, sont très peu nombreuses. La constatation est flagrante si l’on considère les travaux sur l’Algérie des XIXe et XXe siècles. En particulier, il existe peu de publications relatives l’Algérie hormis différentes archives privées et publiques présentes aussi bien en Argentine, au Chili que dans d’autres régions du monde. Ce premier séminaire international devra permettre d’ouvrir un nouveau terrain de recherches et d’offrir une première vision globale sur l’Algérie et les pays arabes au cours des XIXe et XXe siècles, ainsi qu’investiguer les rapports des liens culturels avec l’Amérique latine.

    Political Mobilization in the US: New Stakes and Evolutions

    Les dernières élections présidentielles ont démontré la forte capacité de mobilisation de blocs d’électeurs bien connus depuis le début des années 1980 tels que les chrétiens évangéliques, toujours fidèles au parti républicain, mais aussi d’électeurs dont la volatilité est plus grande, sans oublier la portée de la mobilité démographique. Alors que l’État fédéral continue de se désengager du contrôle des lois et procédures électorales (à la suite de l’arrêt Shelby County v. Holder de 2013), des initiatives sont prises dans ce domaine par les citoyens (comme en Floride avec l’Amendement 4 destiné à réintégrer sur les listes électorales les anciens détenus), mais aussi par les gouverneurs comme les législateurs de certains États pour encadrer ces procédures ainsi que l’accès aux urnes. Dans ce contexte, le record de participation de 2020 et la contestation violente du verdict des urnes marquent un probable tournant pour la démocratie états-unienne. Les trois intervenants de cette journée d’étude, spécialistes de l’intersection entre politique, religion et droits des femmes et des personnes LGBT+, tireront des leçons de cette mobilisation inégalée.
