    The archaeological work in the Greek settlements of the Black Sea and their environs during the last decade

    Black Sea archaeology has always captivated the interest of scholars, because of its unique topography and diachronically multi-ethnic historical landscape.The previous decade was a particularly challenging period for archaeological research worldwide due to the new realities imposed by the pandemic, the extraordinary political and socio-economic factors, and the long-lasting crisis in the Humanities and Arts. In spite of all this, excavations, systematic surveys, remote sensing and geophysical prospections, were undertaken in numerous coastal and inland sites along the Euxine, while equally productive were research projects on specific monuments or aspects of the material culture. Aiming to bring forth the latest advances accomplished in the field, the Department of Black Sea Studies at the Democritus University of Thrace in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, are organizing an International Conference on The Archaeological Work in the Greek Settlements of the BlackSea and their Environs during the Last Decade.

    Energy transitions and economic thinking in German-speaking territories, 1800-2000

    ETRANHET explores how economic ideas on energy have developed in various market-economy contexts around the world, since the first waves of industrialization at the turn of the 19th century. It particularly addresses three key questions: (1) How did past economists (broadly defined) conceive the connection between energy, growth, and development? (2) How did they consider innovation and technological change in energy affairs? (3) How did economic discourse on energy influence policymaking, and vice versa? Areas covered by the project include Continental Europe, the British Isles, North and Latin America, South-East Asia, and some areas under colonial control. This workshop will be an opportunity to look more closely at German-speaking territories within Continental Europe.

    Performing Media Histories

    Arts & Media Archaeology summer school 2024

    In a world where media are omnipresent, this summer school offers a unique opportunity to explore histories of media performance. The programme will focus on the interplay between media developments and performative culture from the late eighteenth century to the present day, focusing on how cultural change, new forms of knowledge, and visual culture were turned into modern spectacles and experiences. From early modern optical tools in Wunderkammers, devices of wonder and philosophical toys to contemporary interactive digital media and VR, we will explore the world of performative media that has fascinated, informed, and shaped our perceptions.

    Writing the Desert

    Directions, sources & perspectives

    How can we write the history of deserts? As "Desert Studies" are only beginning to attract the attention of scholarly communities across the English-speaking world, this conference examines the crucial issue of sources, and its articulation with key research questions relating to arid spaces around the world, with a particular interest in, but not limited to, the Sahara. Research engaging with the history of the Sahara Desert has taken new directions in recent years, notably around previously neglected issues such as mobility, networks, the emergence of new identities in Saharan countries following decolonization, or as part of new explorations of the relationships between colonised and colonisers. Drawing upon this growing historiography, ‘Writing the Desert’ aims to create a space for reflection around the fundamental material of all academic research: on the one hand, the archives which inform the work of the researcher, and on the other the questions around which their investigation is structured.

    Subversive Intrusions: Redefining the Museum Through Activist Interventions

    The editors are looking for original chapters and shorter contributions (interviews, manifestoes, dialogues, etc.) for an interdisciplinary edited volume exploring the phenomenon of artistic and activist-lead intrusive performances in large European and American museums. By interrogating cases of gendered objectification, cultural appropriation, and hierarchical monopolization of vision within Western museums, the contributions to this book explore how these performances (and the actors behind them) contribute to the redefinition of the modern conception of the Western museum.

    Narratives and the Social Sciences

    Interdisciplinary Perspectives

    Storytelling is a human practice that characterizes existence as a whole, responding to educational, social and cultural needs: from memory-making to establishing of relationships, from sharing experiences to forming a self-image, from learning to entertaining. If culture is our toolbox, then storytelling characterizes our way of using these tools to give shape and meaning to the disorder of experiences, and to present our actions as individual and social actors. In everyday life, we are all storytellers and make use of implicit narratives in one way or another. The perspective adopted for this International  conference aims to highlight every possible side of this topic. Anthropologists, sociologists, literary and film critics, semiologists, linguists, economists, aesthetics and image scholars, cultural studies experts and geographers are invited to present their work.

    Local powers toward central authorities: Decision-making process in medieval urban societies

    2nd Lectures on social contract

     The scientific summit is dedicated to bringing together different specialists who analyse the discursivities of decision-making developed in medieval towns and other local instances of political governance. The goal of this seminar is centred in exploring the dynamics between the local and the central spheres of power, following an understanding on how those dynamics build their communication strategies from communal institutions side to interact with —or, even though, resist to— their so-called sovereign authorities. These communication channels often operated networks of semantic change between the local spheres, where political decisions were performed, and the higher spheres with jurisdictional power over them.

    Intersectionality: Challenges and Opportunities for European History?

    Summer School in History

    This online summer school explores the potentials and pitfalls of the application of an intersectional lens to the study of early modern and modern European history in a global context, including its colonial aspects. It does so by asking: How can the focus on experiences that have long been marginalized help us to diversify and rethink our understanding of European history?

    Other Voices. Resilience, Identities and Politicization of Local Agents and the unfolding of the Modern State (17th-19th Centuries)

    This international conference wants to reflect on the interaction between local agents and the institutional State Building policies between the 17th and the 19th Centuries. The construction of the Modern State, far from being a top-down vertical process, has consisted of a debate, often tense - if not adverse - between the interests of local communities and the State apparatus or raison d'état. In this way, the aim is to achieve a much more complete knowledge of the construction of the Modern State based on the study of the local sphere. The conference presented here is undoubtedly boldly conceived: to bring together marginal orisolated aspects and intertwine them to revisit specific historiographical hypotheses.

    Urban societies in medieval Europe

    IX International Conference on the Middle Ages

    The study of medieval urban societies continues to be important and necessary to understand their composition, inequalities and complexity, as well as their role in the construction and experience of urban space. It also makes it possible to observe the different stages of life (childhood, youth, maturity and old age) of its inhabitants, their emotions and the relationships they established between themselves and with the outside world, and therefore the management and resolution of conflicts. These elements fuelled representations of urban society, both in discourses and practices and in material testimonies, which it is important to continue to understand and deepen. With a focus on Christian, Islamic and Jewish Europe, researchers from any scientific discipline (History, Archaeology, History of the Art, Literature, among others) are invited to present proposals for sessions and/or individual presentations.

    Seeking Refuge beyond Europe. New perspectives on European Refugees, Migrants and Exiles in the Middle East and North Africa, 19th-20th centuries

    Special issue of “Diasporas”

    This special issue of Diasporas. Circulations, Migrations, Histoire explores the arrival, transit, and settlement of refugees from Europe, their interaction with civil societies and state institutions, and the evolution of various refugee regimes in the the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) in the 19th and 20th centuries. The role of the imperial, national, and colonial governments will be of particular interest in order to understand the different political factors at stake for the interactions between refugees and the local societies. The issue seeks to contribute to and facilitate the discussion between different fields of research, such as the historiography on expatriate communities, humanitarian organizations, forced migration in MENA, and (post)colonial history. Integrating the experiences of displacement from Europe into the larger question of the transformation of refugee/migration policies in MENA and beyond, the issue’s ambition is to offers new insights into European and Middle Eastern history.

    Remembering Communism in South and Central-Eastern Europe

    Politics and Cultures of Memory After 1989

    Examining both the countries of the former Soviet bloc ‒ Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, the former Czechoslovakia, the German Democratic Republic ‒ and the area of the former Yugoslavia and Albania, where communist regimes but not aligned with the USSR were established, the monographic issue of Qualestoria aims to investigate how, in the course of the now thirty-five years that have passed since 1989, the cultures of memory and the official memory policies promoted by the institutions have changed, questioning also the public use of the history of communism. The issue invites potential contributors to submit essay proposals that develop both analyses of individual country cases and comparative approaches.
