    Seeking the conquest of ruins - the first reconstruction, 1918-1920

    La première reconstruction 1918-1920

    Dans une région profondément bouleversée par la Grande Guerre, où le retour à une vie normale s'est fait en surmontant d'innombrables difficultés, la Société historique de Soissons organise un colloque consacré à l'étude de cette reconstruction. L'étude ne se limite pas strictement au département de l'Aisne, mais s'étend aux départements limitrophes. Ce sujet comprend notamment le rôle de l'État, les initiatives privées, notamment l'action des coopératives de reconstruction. Parmi les nombreux angles d'étude possibles, on peut citer les aspects humains, sociaux, économiques, financiers, architecturaux et patrimoniaux. Les questions démographiques, la santé et l'hygiène seront aussi au coeur du colloque.

    The unusual nature of defence and security finances, today and yesterday

    Les finances de la défense ont longtemps été considérées comme en marge des finances publiques. Leur étude offre cependant un point de vue décalé, éclairant et instructif sur l’ensemble du système financier. Le thème de ce colloque propose d’analyser ce qui constitue, en droit et en pratique, cette spécificité financière. Il se veut volontairement interdisciplinaire, proposant des sessions à chaque fois composées d’historiens et de juristes. Il souhaite également replacer dans une perspective historique nombre de sujets juridiques d’actualité. La défense est entendue au sens large, comprenant ainsi, par exemple, les industries d’armement ; la sécurité quant à elle inclut ici les missions de la gendarmerie, de la police nationale mais aussi des douanes.

    Rethinking the Technical and the Human in Global Connectivity

    We invite contributions for our Workshop “Rethinking the Technical and the Human in Global Connectivity”, happening at Humboldt University Berlin, 24-25 May 2019. The materiality of technologies and infrastructures is significant; however, we think their impact on and interaction with societies has to be analysed in a global dimension as well. We hope to establish this approach for the broader field of African History, reacting and bringing attention to a growing interest in these questions indicated in a number of recently developed research projects and publications.

    Craftsmen and metalworking in medieval cities: 35 years later

    In honour of Professor Paul Benoit

    The symposium addresses themetallurgies of iron, copper, tin, lead and precious metals, which produced a wide variety of objects necessary for urban life at the end of the Middle Ages. The nature, volume and possible standardization of production may be studied, as well as the needs of the city, the practices and techniques of craftsmen, their knowledge and know-how. The relationships between the crafts and between the craftsmen themselves might be examined, including dependency links, pluriactivity, networks of sociability or local relationships in urban areas. The identity and regulation of these crafts, their integration into urban society, their relationship with the surrounding rural areas and with other cities may also be revisited. The symposium will be interdisciplinary in nature, promoting dialogue between historians, archaeologists and archaeometry, without excluding anthropological approaches to learning and knowledge

    International migrations and labour from the 70s to the present

    Since the 70s the presence of migrants in Europe, and especially in Italy, has become a structural issue and has been at the center of the public and political debate. The progressive demolition of welfare systems, the job precariousness, and new consumer lifestyles have generated different responses in terms of regulation of the admissions of foreign citizens in search of a job and their management (housing issues, access to health care, etc.). Both with regard to organization of forms of protection of immigrants in the exercise of theirs fundamental rights, especially in cases of serious discrimination and exploitation (immigrant associations, trade union action, etc.).

    Fiscality and inequalities

    « L’expérience montre que toute personne qui s’intéresse aux impôts, finit par poser les mêmes questions. Elle s’interroge sur l’équité fiscale, compare sa charge fiscale avec celle d’autres contribuables et réclame des droits identiques pour tous ». Cette observation datant des années 1960 nous amène au premier axe de questionnement de la journée : celui lié à la conception de la justice fiscale comme figurant au coeur du contrat social. Cette interprétation bourgeoise issue des Lumières domine la compréhension de la justice fiscale depuis la fin du 18e siècle et c’est elle que l’on retrouve dans les constitutions cantonales dès les années 1830. À l’époque prémoderne, le poids inégal de la dîme, des impôts et des taxes en tout genre a bien souvent joué le rôle de déclencheur dans des mouvements de protestation et de révolte, renvoyant ainsi l’imposition à son caractère extractif, à son potentiel d’instrument de pouvoir. Quels intérêts sociaux, économiques et politiques ont été défendus lors des discussions sur l’impôt « juste » ? Quelle place ont occupé les inégalités en terme d’origine sociale, de genre, de forme du ménage, de statut économique ou d’appartenance territoriale ? ...
