    Mines: the issues of ecological transition

    Activité fondatrice des civilisations humaines, l’extraction de minerais et de métaux connait en ce XXIe siècle un nouvel élan à l’aune de la transition écologique. La relance des fronts miniers des rives de l’Arctique russe aux confins des montagnes andines traduit des besoins toujours croissants alors que la lutte pour le changement climatique, la préservation de la biodiversité et le maintien des communautés humaines conditionnent entre autres la soutenabilité des activités extractives. De même, l’usage massif et complexifié de ces matières premières souligne une dépendance toujours plus grande de nos sociétés. De nombreux travaux questionnent la compatibilité de telles activités aux engagements d’un modèle socio-écologique durable. Ce colloque aspire à un dialogue interdisciplinaire pour discerner les nœuds critiques et l’évolution des approches paradigmatiques, et engager une discussion sur les innovations méthodologiques possibles.

    On Hinterlands and Homelands

    “Have not all races had their first unity from a mythology that marries them to rock and hill?” Yeats wonders rhetorically. The idea of the homeland is organically enmeshed in notions of territoriality and geography. The hinterland is most often seen as its configuration as well as figuration in literature. It is so because it represents an ideal sense of national identity, unity, and even “purity” in extreme nationalist ideologies. It is considered an ideal space insofar as it is imagined as a utopian place, a locus amoenus, where an unsullied form of national character is preserved in its local traditions, dialects, myths and legends. The city is often portrayed as a fallen space, a wound, a disease corrupting the national body. We seek to rethink all these rigid dichotomies. “On Hinterlands and Homelands” Conference invites multidisciplinary papers on these themes.
