    Global Labor Histories in the Francophone World

    Since the turn of new millennium, a new global history of labor has emerged that focuses on the relationship between structures and practices of labor from at least medieval times to the present day. However, most French historians of labor continue to focus on the Hexagon and to underestimate wider European and global connections and comparisons. Similarly, specialists of slavery and post-slavery in the French colonies rarely extend their analyses to other empires or to labor history in France. This special issue seeks to bridge these gaps by inviting submissions relating labor in mainland France to labor in its colonies and/or other areas, from the early modern to the present day.

    Black Lives Matter: a transnational movement

    Revue « Esclavages et post-esclavages / Slaveries and post-slaveries »

    The aim of this special number is therefore to bring together articles analysing the growth of Black Lives Matter (BLM) to a transnational movement. Contributions should show awareness of the concrete modes of circulation and appropriation, and to the repercussions of campaigns linked to BLM, but also of the historical and political ruptures and continuities implied and explained by them. Contributions bearing on the role of new information and communications technologies (NITC) and social networks, especially in the spreading of images (videos of police violence, artworks etc), and their role in the transnational development of the movement will be given close attention.

    Seminar - Middle Ages

    Sounds and voices in the Middle Ages

    L’oralité, la performance, l’émotion, le paysage sonore, la vocalité permettent d’aborder l’homme d’une autre façon, peut-être plus anthropologique et plus sensorielle. Depuis quelques années, les travaux se multiplient pour toutes les époques mais l’époque médiévale n’est pas en reste et les projets de reconstitution sonore émergent pour Amiens, Avignon, Constantinople, Beowulf… La voix est centrale dans les sociétés médiévales où l’oralité permet aussi bien l’expression de soi, le négoce, le plaidoyer que le spectacle. D’une façon plus globale, tous les sons, quels qu’ils soient, construisent le paysage sonore de chaque société, à chaque instant. Cependant, leur caractère individuel, sensoriel et éphémère et l’absence d’enregistrement ont largement retardé leur étude.

    Childhood(s) in Latin America: diversities in tension

    Thematic Dossier vol. XIII, n. 2, 2021

    Water Medicine

    Medical uses of mineral waters (1300-1850)

    The journal Histoire, médecine et santé is launching a call for proposals for a thematic issue devoted to the ‘water medicine’ before the rise of 19th century hydrotherapy. We would like to solicit original research focusing on the therapeutic uses of mineral waters in a transhistorical perspective. Proposals can be sent, for example, on the administrative management of mineral waters and their therapeutics, on the geographical issues related to water medicine, their localisation and their hierarchy. The place of mineral waters in a medical market could also be studied as well as their integration to economies of knowledge. Finally, mineral waters are a formidable starting point to think about environmental medicine. The calendar of this call aims at allowing the integration of emerging projects and the dialogue between the contributors. Proposals must be sent by May 21, 2021. Papers will be submitted in January 2022.

    Voces. Latin Middle Ages through Key Words

    Feast, Holiday, Celebration

    The conference cycle Voces. Latin Middle Ages through Key Words aims to take a closer look at Latin words that have played an important role in the medieval culture. Every two year we propose to focus on a different major medieval concept and its linguistic expressions. This year’s edition will focus on the concepts of Feast, Celebration And Holiday and their vocabulary. The feasts deeply structured social and private life of medieval people. The recurring religious holidays reminded believers of their relationship to the Absolute and gave meaning to the medieval sense of time. Private celebrations, limited to friends and family, were used to underlinethe events of people’s lives. Public holidays, on the other hand, created and sustained social coherence, by highlighting common values and cultural norms that are usually implicit.

    Poetics, Politics and the Ruin in Cinema and Theatre since 1945

    References to Greco-Roman antiquity in Europe between the two World Wars were abundant: first the 'Classical'served the idea of 'a return to order' considered by some as necessary after the heresies of the pre-War avant-garde; it then went on to be manipulated by both Fascist and Nazi ideologies. This conference explores how, by reinventing antiquity through working with ruins both politically and poetically, artistic processes as well as works of theatre and cinema record the historical and artistic consequences of this trauma in Europe.

    Asylum as Protection

    “Diasporas” Journal

    The right to asylum is now defined as legal protection offered to exiles who request it. This notion of protection is part of a long history of asylum. Principalities and cities of refuge used this word as early as the end of the 17th century, when waves of religious migration (Sephardic Jews, Bohemian Lutherans, Huguenots...) multiplied. By offering land and houses, the edicts, such as the Potsdam edict of 1685 reserved for French exiles, first proposed a material shelter as the very etymology of the word “protection”, protectio deriving from the Latin protectum, “roof, roofing” implies. Shelter from persecution was accompanied by specific civil rights, the rights of conscience and the right to property. The edict necessarily involves an oath of obedience and a voluntary submission to the prince.

    Baby sapiens, a tangle of crises

    These meetings will  articulate the question of the baby, terra always incognita, to that of the crises it goes through or causes. Indeed, what is happening to him and in him? From the individual to the family and the institutions, through the sciences that study it and the professionals who take care of it, it is a source, on multiple scales, of questions and even upheavals. The speakers will freely and reflexively debate the reproductive, developmental, institutional, civic, epistemological and health crises emerging around the baby. Even more than a knowledge transfer device, this event wishes to offer a time to suspend our certainties, since we postulate that in baby matters as in others, the more we know, the better we measure the extent of what remains to be discovered.

    The Berlin Academy in the Enlightenment

    L’Académie royale des sciences de Prusse à Berlin a-t-elle marqué de manière décisive l’histoire de la philosophie allemande ? Il est d’usage d’y voir un rassemblement d’esprits médiocres, qui auraient certes favorisé l’éclosion de grands textes en formulant quelques questions de concours demeurées célèbres, mais qui n’auraient pas eux-mêmes produit d’œuvre de quelque importance. La numérisation récente de nouvelles sources, dont la totalité des mémoires académiques, permet de rectifier quelque peu cette image convenue. Cette journée d’étude vise à étudier les évolutions et activités philosophiques et scientifiques de l’Académie royale des sciences de Prusse à Berlin au sein des Lumières allemandes, françaises et européennes.
