    Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries

    As part of its research programme “Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The court was a microcosm of society under the Ancien Régime. The royal family and the great noblemen were not only in each other’s company, but they also rubbed shoulders with a whole crowd of office-holders of greater or lesser importance, who ensured the smooth running of this mechanism.

    Transformer et s’approprier l’espace dans les empires ibériques du XVe au XVIIe siècle

    Du XVIe au XIXe siècles, de nombreux territoires à travers le globe sont transformés par l’impérialisme des couronnes espagnole et portugaise. L’appropriation et la transformation des territoires et des paysages jouent un rôle central dans les processus coloniaux des empires ibériques. En interrogeant la transformation et reconstruction spatiale à l’époque coloniale, cette journée d’étude doctorale entend questionner la spécificité des outils et pratiques mis en place dans les empires ibériques pour maîtriser l’espace et exploiter les ressources des différents territoires qui les composent entre le XVe et XVIIe siècle.

    The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles

    As part of its research programme “The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Five themes will contribute to the ideas about ways in which these galleries can be made more accessible to the public. Indeed, in spite of its gaps, this collection offers strong evidence of a specific view of the history of France that the Museum of the Palace of Versailles should analyse and question today.

    Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)

    As part of its research programme “Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Research will be organised along five different lines, through which the idea of the “perfect court”, such as we find at Versailles, can be defined: organisational model, public and private areas in the residence, reigning and governing in Europe, palace and democracy, State and palace rituals.

    Analysis of relics, hagiographic legends and Carolingian memories

    Around the body of the Apostle James the Greater in Toulouse

    Since the 14th century, the Basilica of Saint-Sernin in Toulouse has been proud to possess the entire body of James the Greater. After a first preparatory seminar on 11 March 2019 in Toulouse (Vraies et fausses reliques: un vrai faux problème), a workshop was held on 10 December 2021 (Les reliques toulousaines de Jacques le Majeur), focusing on the material aspects (examination of bones, reliquaries, and authentic items). In a final stage, the results of these analyses should be put into perspective during a meeting which would lead to the writing of a monograph bringing together all the studies carried out on the relics of Saint James in Toulouse.

    AntiAtlas of Epistemicide

    AntiAtlas of Epistemicide is a collaborative artistic and scientific project that brings together notices and synthetic articles on epistemicides, past or present, anywhere on the planet. The articles collected in this book will be accompanied by a map designed specifically for each example of an epistemicide. The question being as singular as it is unfathomable, this project does not have an encyclopedic aim, but to the contrary, to establish a non-exhaustive and subjective atlas, assumed to be both a scientific work and an artistic catalogue. As all disciplinary fields are concerned by this question, antiAtlas of Epistemicide is opening its call for contributions to a authors of all disciplinary affiliations.

    Socio-poétiques urbaines : construire le discours social de la ville dans la littérature

    Atlante, Revue d’études romanes numéro 17 (automne 2022)

    Depuis que Roland Barthes a proposé, dans son article célèbre « Sémiologie et Urbanisme » (1967), de mener l’analyse de la ville du point de vue sémiologique, les écoles critiques ont été nombreuses à se livrer à cette tâche tout en poursuivant, de façon privilégiée, la tradition des études de poétique de l’imaginaire. Malgré une telle richesse, les études se font moins nombreuses quand il s’agit de parler de la construction significative de la ville d’un point de vue social, voire sociopolitique, à partir de ses représentations littéraires. En raison de ce que représentent les villes pour la philologie romane, et en raison des facteurs linguistiques et géographiques qui motivent leurs origines et leurs figurations littéraires différentes tout en préservant des points de convergence, nous croyons que le domaine roman constitue l’espace idéal pour délimiter la portée de ce volume.

    Learning from territories / Teaching territories

    In German (lehren / lernen) as in Arabic (تعليم / تعلم), a single letter distinguishes the concept of teaching from the concept of learning. Whether defined as a theoretical object of scientific knowledge that can be taught or as a body of practices that can be passed on, there is no escaping the need to address the issue of the relationship between the apparent universality of the concept of territory, on the one hand, and the variety of uses to which the term is put and the range of practices associated with it, on the other. The sixth CIST conference will focus on two questions: how to teach about territories (academic knowledge, empirical methods, disciplinary approaches, etc.) and how to learn from territories (observing, exploring, describing, experiencing, etc.).

    Transforming and appropriating space in the Iberian empires of the 15th to 17th centuries

    Journée doctorale Campus Condorcet

    The Myth of Versailles and European Courts, 17th and 20th centuries

    Ce colloque est organisé dans le cadre du programme « Identités curiales et le mythe de Versailles en Europe : perceptions, adhésions et rejets (XVIIIe-XIXe siècle) » mené par le centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Il a pour objectif d’analyser le modus operandi du mythe de Versailles dans l’Europe monarchique des XVIIIe, XIXe et XXe siècles, en prenant en compte les deux éléments contradictoires mais complémentaires qui caractérisent cette notion : le réel et la reconstruction du réel. L’enjeu sera donc double : cerner comment les différents aspects propres à l’identité de Versailles ont pu nourrir un imaginaire, mais aussi saisir la manière dont cet imaginaire a pu susciter d’autres réalisations – architecturales, rituelles, politiques.

    La place des femmes dans l’hispanisme : les pionnières

    Comme dans bien d’autres domaines des sciences et des lettres, l’hispanisme est, à ses débuts, une affaire d’hommes. Il faut attendre la première guerre mondiale pour voir apparaître les premières femmes lauréates de l’agrégation d’espagnol, créée en 1899. Ce colloque vise à interroger les carrières de ces premières hispanistes en les comparant avec celles de leurs homologues masculins. Loin de se limiter aux hispanistes françaises, ce colloque entend récupérer la mémoire d’hispanistes de tous horizons, ayant développé leur activité en lien avec l’Espagne ou l’Amérique latine.

    Récit et mise en scène de soi : formes, enjeux et problématiques

    Réfléchir au récit de soi nous invite à penser à la manière dont se construit la subjectivité. Selon Isabelle Galichon, « le récit de soi est à la fois un « texte en devenir » inscrit dans le cadre d’une pratique et un « texte de devenir » puisqu’il porte en lui une potentialité de résistance. La journée d’étude s’intéressera aussi aux fonctions du récit de soi : on pourra réfléchir au récit en tant qu’interrogation sur le sens d’une vie, témoignage, révélateur des diverses significations que l’on attribue à un parcours personnel, mais aussi au récit de soi comme thérapie, catharsis ou dépassement d’un trauma.

    Music and (re)transmission of memories of slave trades and slaveries

    The aim of this special issue is to pursue the reflection initiated by the journal Esclavages & post~esclavages/Slaveries & Post~Slaveries on the work of artists and their re-actualization through sensitive forms of the history and memories of the slave trades and slaveries, this time with a focus on the question of music. This dossier will attempt to unfold the complex ways in which music has become a source and a resource for memories, from the time of the slave trades and slaveries to the present day.

    The legacy of the arts: ideas and representations

    The transmission of knowledge through tradition, orality and Academia

    The second edition of the conference on doctoral studies in art and musicology aims to focus on research on the transmission of knowledge through the arts as a means and source of knowledge in the art world. The images and musical documents that have been preserved from ancient times to the present day - throughout the world - have made it possible to understand aspects of the social, cultural and religious life of many civilizations and also to be the same reflection of these. In this way, Art and Music, as resources, have been one of the key elements to be able to understand a culture since it has been the mechanism through which humans have been able to capture and transmit ideas and knowledge.

    The politics and poetics of down-and-outs

    Rogues and picaros in medieval and renaissance Spain and England

    Within Western literature, the picaresque was quickly perceived as a “historically and geographically delimited tradition” specific to Spain during the Golden Age, a genre apart from the rest, almost without precedent. Going against this common misconception, recent studies have reminded us of the importance of the Apuleian and Lucian origins of this ‘new’ narrative formula. The wily beggar thus seems the prodigal son of the Ancients. Shouldn't we therefore extend the reflection and, at the very least, reconsider the scientific cliché that sees in this character the perfect (dissident) example of the Renaissance hero? Didn't the Middle Ages also contribute to the creation of the cunning rogue?
