    Beyond games: Tinkering and creative appropriation of video games

    Fifth edition of the Game History Annual Symposium

    The symposium focuses on the personal and oral histories of fandom and hobbyist designers, their preoccupations, practices, and political economies. We are not only interested in the manifestations and history of these scenes, but also in how fandom themselves participate in the creation and distribution of historical discourse about the objects of their affection. Thus, we invite members of collecting and creating communities to participate with scholars in two days of conversation and events.

    Cultural policies. What's new?

    ICCA International Symposium

    The question of cultural policies and of their convergence towards a single model - or on the contrary of their divergences - arises in a context of globalization. Indeed, many factors encourage convergence: the industrialization of a wide part of cultural activities; the polarization between structures that are both agile and open to digital technologies and more traditional structures; the global market power of GAFAM on three complementary fields : access to culture via search engines, distribution of cultural goods via e-commerce, digitization of cultural goods and services; the importance given to copyright enforcement; the role of the international art market and positioning of museums facing the evolution of this market (especially competition and rise in prices); public / private rebalancing, even in countries where public intervention is predominant.

    Regions and Regionalism in Canada: constructing and managing political, social and cultural territory

    In a contemporary age in which “think globally, act locally” has become a slogan, has the propensity to favour local initiatives resulted in shifting loyalties, has it modified the level at which citizens feel their strongest sense of belonging? Has it altered conceptions of citizenship? Has it had any impact on the locus of power? Which conceptual tools are most pertinent when trying to apprehend the social, cultural and political dimensions of regions and regionalism in Canada? How has the territorial notion of “region”, which comes out of the European tradition, been articulated to adapt to the Canadian context, especially with regard to the question of belonging (communities, nations, etc)?

    Risk, Violence, and Collective Agency

    This colloquium will assemble a multidisciplinary group of literary scholars, philosophers, sociologists and historians to explore the interrelation of concepts of risk, violence, and collective agency. Participants will do so in a number of literary, historical and geographical contexts, such as Rimbaud’s or Zola’s Paris, Dostoevsky’s or Mandelstam’s Russia, or the 16th century French religious wars and the Armenian genocide. Conversations will engage the critical and philosophical work of Hobbes, Goethe, Arendt, Berlin, Derrida or Balibar. What is at stake is how theories of risk and collective agency might reveal new ways of understanding not only acts of violence or massacre, nihilism and collective political affect, collective will and democracy, or totalitarianism and genocide, but also the complexities of their aesthetic, literary, historiographical or sociological representations.

    How sustainable are India’s Smart Cities?

    Critically assessing the projects and politics underpinning the Smart City Mission

    Faisant suite à une première réunion consacrée à la Smart City Mission en Inde en septembre 2018, l'objectif spécifique de cet atelier international est de se concentrer sur les questions de durabilité sociale et environnementale. Sur la base d'enquêtes sur le terrain, les intervenants évalueront de manière critique les expériences de villes intelligentes au fur et à mesure de leur déroulement. Parmi les questions à discuter figurent les suivantes : Comment l'engagement de l'Inde à l'égard des villes intelligentes se compare-t-il à d'autres cas internationaux ? Dans quelle mesure les projets en Inde s'appuient-ils sur des technologies de pointe ? Comment pouvons-nous caractériser la gouvernance et la politique de l'engagement de l'Inde dans l'urbanisme intelligent ?

    Economics, security and politics

    The Chair of Defense Economics and the Institute for Strategic Research (IRSEM, Paris) organize a workshop on the theme “Economics, Security and Politics”. Throughout this day, we will explore the links between democracy, its construction, public opinions and military actions or conflicts. We will mostly focus on the relationships between citizenship and military actions. The term “citizenship” embraces here elements related to public opinion and the rise of nationalism or populism in modern societies.

    Identities and Identifications: Politicized Uses of Collective Identities (8th Edition)

    Identity is one of the crown jewelries in the kingdom of ‘contested concepts’. Few concepts are so integral to social assumptions, beliefs and claims of belonging while simultaneously escaping a clear definition or even a minimal consensus. The idea of identity is conceived to provide some unity and recognition while it also exists by separation and differentiation. From personal to group and collective identities, multiple layers of identifications juxtapose conflict or exclude. Few concepts were used as much as identity for contradictory purposes. From the fragile individual identities as self-solidifying frameworks, to layered in-group identifications in families, orders, organizations, religions, ethnic groups, regions, nation-states, supra-national entities or any other social entities, the idea of identity always shows up in the core of debates and makes everything either too dangerously simple or too complicated. Constructivist and de-constructivist strategies have led to the same result: the eternal return of the topic. Some say we should drop the concept, some say we should keep it and refine it, some say we should look at it in a dynamic fashion while some say it’s the reason for resistance to change. In the meantime, identities are programmatically asserted and promoted to generate cohesion and demand recognition while the process of identification excludes and creates boundaries and alterity making practices.

    Competition Law and Sustainability - Addressing the Broken Links

    In the context of a global system of production that is increasingly interconnected and exponentially exercising pressure on the planet and people’s lives, this conference is inspired by the desire to imagine a system of competition law (or beyond competition law) that is fully embedded in the double limit of the planetary boundaries and of social considerations. To achieve this goal, the organizing partners aim to bring together young academics (master’s, PhD, up to four years into tenure track) challenging the status quo with more experienced experts in the areas of competition law and sustainability to rethink competition law and discuss new ways of regulation, interactions between markets, regulators and society and legal enforcement that take into account social and environmental externalities.

    Predatory state

    This symposium is part of a recent and very dynamic renewal of research on the State in economics involving a critical examination of two dominant postulates of the discipline: 1) the assumption of an apolitical State or a benevolent dictatorship which pursues no private interest maximizing the general interest. 2) The assumption of “soft trade”, i.e. the exclusion of social conflicts, inter-state and intra-state wars in the presence of markets. Our discussions aim to explore how the sovereign, prudential, and providential dimensions of the state can be interpreted if these two assumptions are dropped. What is the place of conflictual power in the genesis and evolution of the rules governing the distribution of wealth and economic, social, and ecological development?

    Solidarity at Work

    The term “solidarity” seems to have fallen out of theoretical fashion despite the fact that it has a long history of describing the shared struggles of those oppressed by economic or political power structures. This conference aims to explore the past, present and future of “solidarity at work” on both the conceptual and empirical level. Its focus is on the world of work, which it wants to investigate from a transnational perspective. How have the concepts, conceptions and categories of solidarity shaped labor and the labor movements of different countries? What about the divergent conceptual meanings and practices in these assorted contexts? How have power relations as well as people’s everyday life been changed by the various practices related to solidarity? How do technological and managerial changes help to shift ideas and practices of solidarity? Do we see new forms emerging? Who are the agents of “solidarity at work” and what are the concrete mechanisms involved? More broadly, what are the levers and brakes of solidarity in the workplace today?

    Producing concerts, working in live music

    Live music has long been neglected by music scholars; however it is now subject to renewed interest. Recently, researchers have focused on the economics of live music  and the work of musicians. However, the "support personnel" (Becker, 2010) needed in order to produce concerts is still not frequently studied. Little is known about the different occupations (technicians, bookers, programmers) and organizations (festivals, ticket retailers, public funders) required to produce concerts, but also to market live music, and to exploit it in other formats (e.g. live broadcasting, recording). In order to address this gap, this workshop proposes to explore three areas of investigation.
