    From risk to resilience, from past to present: critical perspectives and comparative approaches

    2016 Summer School of the Cluster of Excellence Territorial and Spatial Dynamics (LabEx DynamiTe)

    This Summer School will give precedence to exploratory work that does not take the concept of resilience for granted but rather examines the social and historical conditions of its use by the scientific community. Thus, a constant dialogue between past and present case studies shall be offered, involving geographers, sociologists, historians and archeologists. By comparing sites distant in both time and space, common mechanisms that lead to system resilience or on the contrary to major qualitative system reorganizations can be identified.

    A condição humana e o entendimento global: crises, diálogos e diásporas

    VI Curso internacional de Verão da Escola de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Évora

    Num tempo que perdeu o sentido construtivo das utopias, colocar lado a lado “condição humana” e “entendimento global” corre o risco de ser confundido com uma contradição em termos, como se a condição humana fosse inconciliável com a ideia de diálogo, de partilha, de entendimento global. E todavia, nunca como hoje foi tão premente e vital a redescoberta de caminhos que nos levem a um entendimento global. Mas tal urgência obriga ao redespertar da criação de utopias, ao seu reconhecimento como grandes vias que nos podem resgatar à depressão e ao caos da “sociedade líquida”. A sociedade líquida é a sociedade prisioneira de um tempo só, o do instante, o do imediato. E como nele não há espaço nem para o passado nem para o futuro, nele também não cabem nem memória, nem missão. A sociedade líquida é assim também como um mar de pequenos peixes ciclídeos, prisioneiros da sua incapacidade de reter o erro ou de projectar utopias, tristemente felizes na ilusão de que tudo sabem e de que tudo criam pela primeira vez.

    Islamism and contemporary worlds - an interdisciplinary approach to complex issues

    Le Centre interdisciplinaire d’études de l’islam dans le monde contemporain (CISMOC) de l’université catholique de Louvain organise du 22 au 27 août 2016 une école d'été « Islams et mondes contemporains : une approche interdisciplinaire d’enjeux complexes ». Cette Summer School offre une introduction interdisciplinaire aux multiples facettes des islams contemporains par le biais des sciences politiques, sociologie, anthropologie, histoire et islamologie. Elle vise à comprendre la complexité des enjeux, aussi bien au niveau de la pensée que des pratiques, auxquels se confrontent les musulmans et les sociétés d’ici et d’ailleurs. Elle est avant tout soucieuse d’un ancrage en relation aux réalités européennes (et belges) de l’islam et des musulmans  tout en soulignant les liens qui s’établissent avec d’autres régions du monde musulman dans le paysage global de l’islam.

    The "Face" of First World War Battlefields and Battles

    The centenary in 2016 of the two iconic battles of the First World War – Verdun and the Somme – leads us to reconsider battles and battlefields in the historiography of the First World War. Since John Keegan’s pioneering Face of Battle (1976), generations of historians have expanded our understanding of the experience of combat, as well as our knowledge of the literary and artistic representations of the battlefield. The way we think about the legacy of battles in the memory of the First World War around the world, too, has changed. Our week in Verdun and Péronne will not only give us time to reflect on the current state of research on the battles of the First World War and discover the most recent advancements in battlefield archeology and environmental history of warfare, but also confront these readings with on-the-ground visits to the sites studied.
