    Food and Health

    Revue « Soin, sens et santé. An International Journal of the Health Humanities »

    This issue is devoted to the relationship between food and care from the perspective of the humanities, social sciences (history, anthropology, sociology, political science), art, and literature. The notion of care is to be considered here in its broadest sense, ranging from "paying attention" to a strictly sanitary perspective, from the physiological to the social and political.

    The Sound of Amateur Cinema

    Ce colloque porte sur les pratiques sonores liées au cinéma amateur. Celui-ci est généralement considéré comme muet jusqu'à l’apparition de caméras sonores accessibles aux amateurs. Pourtant, de nombreuses sources attestent, dès les années 1930, d’une pratique de l’enregistrement sonore à des fins de sonorisation, et des enregistrements existent. L’arrivée du magnétophone à bande a contribué à diffuser plus largement l’usage du son enregistré dans le cinéma amateur. Le son associé au cinéma amateur reste toutefois très peu étudié, autant à l’université que dans les cinémathèques et centres d'archives. Ce colloque fait le point sur le sujet, en conciliant les approches techniques, culturelles et archivistiques, afin de faire se rencontrer universitaires, archivistes, techniciens, et cinéastes amateurs.

    Crafting Fashion and Dress in the « Longue Durée »

    Si la mode, comme phénomène, est intrinsèquement liée au temps, au changement et à la notion d’éphémère, la temporalité des savoir-faire sur lesquels elle repose est bien moins fréquemment analysée. Comment peut-on ainsi considérer les liens entre le temps et le faire ? Les savoir-faire, les gestes et les savoir-incarnés dont dépend le renouvellement des formes ne s’inscrivent-ils pas dans une temporalité spécifique, un temps long du faire qu’il convient de questionner ? Qu’apporte à notre compréhension de la mode et du vêtement cette vision dans le temps des savoir-faire sur lesquels ils reposent ? Le colloque invite des contributions d’archéologues, d’historiens, d’historiens de l’art, d’anthropologues ou de spécialistes de la conservation-préventive, ou d’archivistes.

    Religious Conversions. Believing and Doing on the Move in the Mediterranean Area

    This issue looks at religion in terms of its ability to mobilise institutions, groups and individuals around plural dynamics that contribute to the redefinition of the religious field itself. It looks at religious conversion through the prism of multidirectional and communicating trajectories, ’bifurcations’ in which movements of diversions, decentering and return to the self come together. Religious conversion is understood here beyond the dualistic categorisation of rupture and continuity. This leads us to think of it not simply as an opaque process of religious disaffiliation and affiliation, but as a movement from self to self, involving a constant tension of negotiation between reconfiguration of the ways in which people believe and do religion, and the significance of the identities and sensibilities of individuals in a given social environment.

    List, compile, assemble: small forms and the power of collecting

    Workshop of the research training group “The literary and epistemic history of small forms”

    Unraveling the various asymmetries inherent in collecting requires shifting our focus from collections themselves to how collections come into being. This entails viewing collections as both purposeful and contingent results of scientific or cultural practice. Drawing on the history of collecting and the history of paperwork, this interdisciplinary workshop aims to enhance our understanding of the collecting processes involving written testimonies, inscriptions, and texts. With a focus on contexts such as artistic-literary primitivism or colonial encounters, the workshop proposes a comparative examination of the asymmetries associated with collecting via three main axes: actor-networks involved in the production of collections, the role of collecting in the management of life, and how collections emerge from asymmetrical media practices.

    Resonance: The Creative Thrust of “Deep Zouk”

    Si le premier colloque international sur le Zouk, en 2019, a traité des trajectoires, des imaginaires et perspectives suivant le concept lacanien d’« hainamoration », ce deuxième colloque s’articule autour du concept chamoisélien de « résonance » pour tenter d'expliciter le processus de création de la musique zouk depuis ses fonts baptismaux. Qu'est-ce qui conditionne l’imaginaire créatif de nos démiurges du zouk et leur permet d’appréhender le monde ? Ce questionnement se justifie par le fait que beaucoup de musiciens et artistes-chanteurs-interprètes de nos régions, s’ils suivent des formations musicales conventionnelles, il n’en demeure pas moins que pour créer dans la Caraïbe, leurs lignes créatrices s'ancrent authentiquement dans le principe de la « résonance » (conte-danse-rythme), les sources vives des énergies cosmiques, de la vibration du tambour. Ce colloque permettra d’entrer dans les arcanes de la création, de pister et de suivre la trace de certains artistes rompus à l’exercice pour tenter de définir des traits définitoires de ce processus de création du « Deep zouk ».

    When the archaeological object is a historical subject

    Perception, function and reception of artefacts

    In the wake of the material turn and following the example of the television programme Faire l'histoire presented by Patrick Boucheron on Arte, the aim of this event is to reflect on the definition, role and understanding of artefacts. Encompassing a wide historical period and geographical area, our aim is to examine both the history of the archaeological object itself and the archaeological object in history. This interdisciplinary approach will allow us to compare points of view on a subject at the heart of current issues.

    Circus arts without borders

    For a world history of the circus from Antiquity to the present day

    The aim of this conference is to decompartmentalise these historiographies by inviting researchers in history and, more broadly, in the arts and the social sciences (performing arts, art history, sociology, anthropology, etc.), as well as those involved in the artistic and cultural world, to combine their approaches. This conference sees itself as a first step towards a world history of the circus, while being aware of the limits of such an undertaking. The historiography of the circus is recent, and many aspects remain unexplored. There is a lack of works that build bridges between different national histories. Moreover, some of them have not yet been written. The history of the circus in certain regions of the world and at certain periods remains largely unknown. Consequently, papers taking a local approach may be proposed if they draw attention to these areas where the history of the circus has yet to be written. However, the emphasis will be on comparative or connected, global or even worldwide approaches. The aim will be to highlight intercultural dynamics rather than local particularities.

    Seminar - Ethnology, anthropology

    From tubers to rice, from barley to wheat. Cultural and Food Transitions

    Séminaire d’anthropologie diachronique

    Le thème « Des tubercules au riz, de l’orge au blé... Transitions culturales et alimentaires », est abordé dans une double approche ethnologique/anthropologique et archéologique et dans une dimension diachronique et comparative, c’est-à-dire à la fois spatiale et temporelle. À partir d’exemples ethnographiques, historiques et archéologiques, on tentera de cerner contextes et raisons du changement cultural survenu dans des aires culturelles et/ou historiques marquées jadis par la chasse-collecte ou l’horticulture délaissées au profit de l’agriculture et de l’élevage et surtout, dans des régions et sociétés longtemps caractérisées par la mise en culture et la consommation d’un tubercule ou d’une céréale particulière dominante, les raisons de l’abandon de celui-ci ou de celle-ci au profit d’une plante importée.

    Cultural and Creative Industries in Africa and the Arab World

    The main objective of this first edition of the International Conference on Cultural Engineering and Heritage Development is to approach the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) in African and Arab contexts and their evolution in the era of postmodernism; era that is characterized by focus on knowledge, intangibility and digitalization. While the core of CCIs remains in works of art, artistic expressions, cultural heritage, and traditional know-how, the production and reproduction models of art and culture have continued to reinvent themselves, as is the case with those of creation. Thus, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the main themes of this conference focus on the complexity of CCIs in Africa and the Arab world, their specificities, and the issues their development generates.

    Circulations of pedagogies: craft teaching in a colonial and post-colonial context

    Ce colloque propose de se pencher sur la circulation de la transmission du geste et des techniques en contexte colonial et post-colonial, du XIXe au XXIe siècle. L’historienne de l’art Victoria L. Rovine rappelle que comme ses équivalents classificatoires « art » et « artefact », l’artisanat est un concept occidental, appliqué à des objets d’autres cultures dans le but de les absorber dans des pratiques de collection et d’exposition. C’est la circulation des savoirs, des gestes, techniques et motifs ainsi que les forces de résistance ou de coopération avec les structures et les patrimoines (pré)-existants qui nous intéressent ici. On considérera le contexte colonial comme celui d’une colonisation occidentale en Afrique, Asie, Amérique latine et Océanie, mais aussi celui d’une colonisation désormais considérée comme interne, comme aux États-Unis ou en Australie.

    Voices of the South (Guyanas, Latin America, Caribbean, West Africa)

    When speech becomes authoritative and oral serves as a writing of history

    This issue aims to curate articles dedicated to exploring the voices that resonate from these regions. Central to our inquiry is the exploration of memory – individual or collective recollections of lived experiences, orally transmitted across generations, and culturally embedded within communities. This memory is particularly important in oral tradition societies, in West Africa for example, as well as in the societies and cultures of the Americas (including Guiana and the Caribbean). As a resolutely multidisciplinary dossier, it will welcome texts focusing on the words of the “people of the South,” as witness-spectators or witness-actors, and on the uses to which these words are put in research in the humanities and social sciences.

    The Migration and Climate Nexus

    The aim of this conference is to promote cross-disciplinary conversations around the climate and migration. This includes the complex issue of the role played by climate variation, through environment upheavals, in driving population movements. This issue is commonly referred to as “climate migration”. This conference is also an opportunity to encourage greater interaction between the climate sciences on the one hand, and the humanities and social sciences on the other; such interaction is critical for working on this cross-disciplinary subject.

    Otherness in Focus: The Conceptualisation of the Other in Contemporary Thought (Orient/Occident)

    Set within an interdisciplinary perspective, this conference raises questions around otherness and its representations in contemporary thought between the Orient and the Occident. Studies devoted to the question of otherness and its corollaries – alienation, discrimination, inclusion and exclusion – are considerably important and their potential has nourished scientific reflexion and drawn extensive attention on the part of authors, sociologists, journalists, political scientists and ethnologists. Such representations of the image of the Other are shaped by imaginaries that feed partly upon the perceptions of the historical past, that of colonialism and imperialism, and partly from newly-born representations with the advent of this third millennium.
