    Call for papers - Middle Ages

    La valeur des vivants dans l’Occident médiéval (Ve-XVe siècle)

    In the framework of a study day, we propose to reflect on the values accorded to living beings (humans and animals) in the medieval West from the 5th to the 15th century. They are characterised by their market, utilitarian and symbolic value. In addition to this, there are the considerations and knowledge that medieval people had of their fellow human beings and their environment (fauna and trees). Finally, the event proposes to look at these questions in the context of reflections on medievalism. As the issues are diverse, we are making the whole range of humanities and social sciences disciplines.

    Extreme bodies

    « Perspective » n° 2024-2

    The journal Perspective : actualité en histoire de l'art will explore, in its 2024 – 2 issue, the thematic “extreme bodies”. Our aim is to shed light on the ways images participate in the creation of the body, the spread of a standard and the constraints applied to that body in order to achieve the standard, but also the ways images sometimes serve to subvert them. It is thus in terms of the standardised body, considered more as a model or goal to be attained than as the aurea mediocritas (Horace, Odes, II, X, 5), the incarnation of the middle ground remote from excesses, that we would like to address questions related to extreme bodies.

    In the name of nature: Activists, experts, and the law

    Civilisations journal (vol.73, 2024)

    In recent decades, debates over the protection of animals and nature have become more prominent worldwide and are increasingly having an impact on legal proceedings. This special issue will approach these disputes from an anthropological perspective by considering the relevant debates and court decisions, and by examining the role of scientific expertise and the interplay between local situations and the global discourse. The aim of this issue is to explore how activists, scientists, and the legal community approach the environmental damage caused by human activity and the threats it poses to different animal species. In particular, this issue considers how any potential tensions or conflicts arising from these threats end up being arbitrated by courts.

    In the notebooks of a scholar travelling in Ethiopia

    Transcribing and editing the notebooks of Antoine d’Abbadie (mid-19th century)

    During the decade of 1840, a French scientist, Antoine d'Abbadie, traveled to the Horn of Africa. Self-funded, he made numerous scientific observations that he recorded in some twenty notebooks. The MSS-Abbadie project, part of the BnF's four-year research program (2020-23), has been working to make this profusion of notes accessible by digitizing the originals, depositing them on Gallica, describing the manuscripts, and offering them for collaborative transcription on the Transcrire platform. This call for participation invites the contributors who took part in this crowdsourcing adventure to return some of the knowledge acquired during this transcription work, as well as to testify about it and the working methods that were experienced. It remains wide open to researchers from outside the project who can provide a fresh look at both the historical context and the new approaches currently being applied to this type of corpus and situations.

    Conversation rediscovered. Conversational variations from the XVIth to the XXIst century in the western world

    This edition of Savoirs en Prisme review proposes some reflexions on how their manner of conversing defines human societies. Nowadays the word conversation can refer to interactions without voice or body using predictive text and artificial intelligence. Can this type of communication meet the needs of human beings? Is not face-to-face conversation a necessity, almost an urgency at the moment? Literature and all forms of representations have bequeathed to us this principle present at the very core of societies.

    Participation: trick of neo-liberal capitalism or true perspective for the social sciences ?

    Journal des anthropologues n°178-179

    Anthropology, like the social sciences as a whole and a good number of academic disciplines, seems to be experiencing a “participatory turn”. How can we analyse the injunction to radically transform our ways of doing not only in the field but also outside it? Can applied anthropology, as it has been developing for many years in Quebec and in the Anglo-Saxon world, inform us about the real consequences of this evolution? These are some of the questions we wish to address in this issue. Simultaneously with the constitution of this file, we will open a research notebook that we hope will constitute the basis of a collaborative platform that will allow us to preserve the international contacts established during its production.

    Contestation sociale et ses futurs

    Social protest and its futures

    What are the future temporalities of contemporary mobilizations ? In social protests, the hopeful future and the conviction that a better future is within reach have long marked revolutionary rhetoric and progressive political fervor. However, is this enthusiastic “jusqu’auboutisme” a temporality that still belongs to contemporary imaginaries of struggle ?

    Migration in Belgium: Epistemological issues, History, Public action and Mobilisations

    This study day aims to bring together researchers from different social science disciplines (anthropology, law, economics, geography, history, philosophy, psychology, political science, sociology, etc.) working on migration issues in Belgium. In a context where migration phenomena are regularly at the forefront of political and media news (“reception crisis”, border management and control, citizen mobilisations, etc.), the aim of this study day is, on the one hand, to review the progress of research in the various social science disciplines in this field, and, on the other hand, to refine academic analyses through a multidisciplinary dialogue. This meeting thus intends to contribute to a better understanding of the migration phenomenon in Belgium.

    Health, gender and sustainable development in schools and universities

    This Conference on “Health, gender and sustainable development in schools and universities” questions the school and university environment as a space for learning, training, socialisation and production of the elite, and also appears to be the theatre par excellence for the expression of various types of social problems. Faced with this social reality, it is essential for researchers in Africa and the world to reflect on this issue in order to propose sustainable solutions.

    Le retour des choses : objets, archives et création en temps de restitution

    This workshops in Cameroon propose to approach restitution through the prism of returns, i.e. to decentralize: from the countries where the objects were held to the countries and communities of origin; from Western viewpoints to African opinions; from the “works” exhibited in European museums to the resocialization of the returned “things”, recharged with multiple meanings; from the materiality of the objects to archival images and to contemporary creations. How is the possible return of objects perceived? What imaginations and expectations does it awaken? What would be the values of the returned things?

    Hemingway et l’Amérique du Sud

    La fabrique transculturelle du vivant

    The study of transculturality in Hemingway’s work, as proposed in this international conference, has a triple dimension: experiential, transtextual and intersubjective. Hemingway’s practice of transculturality was inspired by his passion for nature and the unconstrained possibilities of receiving and transmitting knowledge that the focus on nature as a universal good makes possible.

    Les pèlerinages sur le front occidental de la première guerre mondiale

    De la fin de la guerre aux pratiques contemporaines

    Dès la guerre, des dizaines de milliers d’anciens combattants, de familles de défunts et de délégations officielles ont entrepris des pèlerinages sur les champs de bataille à la recherche de proches disparus dans un vaste mouvement d’hommage collectif ou individuel sans précédent dans l’histoire. Les pèlerinages, dans leurs spécificités, se poursuivent aujourd’hui vers des sites faisant l’objet d’aménagements renouvelés depuis les commémorations du centenaire, tels que les vestiges des champs de bataille, les ruines, les cimetières, les mémoriaux. Les nouveaux pèlerins (re)découvrent les paysages, l’histoire de ces sites et les multiples conséquences de la guerre, pour les territoires comme leurs habitants.
