    Summer School - Modern

    Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Climate and Biodiversity Crises

    Historical evolutions, current realities, and future pathways for socio-ecological transformation

    Over the past centuries, the industrialisation of Western societies gradually impacted nature, and environmental problems increased with globalisation during the last decades. As a consequence, we are now experiencing major crises which are linked with each other: biodiversity is disappearing faster and faster, and global warming is escalating, not only causing unprecedented damage to the Earth, but also unequally and unfairly affecting different parts of the world. In this context, our summer school proposes to bring together an interdisciplinary range of researchers interested in the various implications and interconnections of the climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis.

    Polarized Societies? Challenges for Sociology

    XII Portuguese Congress of Sociology

    The challenges that polarization brings to sociology now extend to crucial domains of social processes and action, reaching, among others, the arenas of consumption, religions, identities, sexuality, childhood, culture, and science. In this context, the digitization of society and the economy creates and emphasizes dynamics of polarization, while simultaneously opening up new possibilities. Beyond the general impact on social interactions and practices, to what extent are the new social media a factor that promotes expressions of polarization?

    European Energy Shortages during the Short Coal Age (1860-1960)

    The winter of 2022-2023 in Europe may become the harshest since 1944 due to fuel and electricity scarcity. This is an obvious moment for revisiting historical energy shortages. The proposed workshop will target the period of repeated fuel shortages in Europe from roughly 1860 to 1960 – the century during which coal supplied more than 50 % of all energy in Europe.

    A game of states? Sport and international politics

    Eracle Call for Papers Vol. 6 (2023)

    In recent years, the increasing fragmentation of the international system, linked to rising China-US tensions, the emergence of populist movements, the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, casts further complexity and uncertainty on international sport, calling for renewed scholarly attention and inquiry. Against this backdrop, we invite scholars of sport as a social phenomenon and institution – historians, sociologists, political scientists, International Relations and Media and Communications scholars – to submit proposals addressing the multifaceted nexus between sport and international politics.

    Standards: shared rules or tools of power? Technical standardization and the evolution of business and economy in the contemporary age

    “RiSES. Ricerche di Storia Economica e Sociale” Journal – volume 2023, IX, 1

    Over time, the formalization of knowledge and practices through standards, protocols, certifications, auditing systems, has become universal and standardization has become a big business. How did this process develop, what was the reasons, and which its effects? Historiography seems still lacking for the contemporary age (19th-20th centuries) with regard to the agri-food sectors, the manufacturing industry, or the intensive and science-based sectors, where a culture of standards early emerged as a priority task of technicians and specialists.

    New Perspectives on Researching the Military

    Often called out for its lack of inclusion and diversity, it is not only the military institution that needs to change, but also the way it is studied. Now more than ever, marginalized voices and perspectives need to be seen and heard as they can provide insights into key challenges the military institution currently faces. This two-day event – which will encompass a conference and a workshop – aims to bring together members from the defence community to exchange ideas and bring new perspectives on the future of research on the military.

    Housing co-creation for tomorrow’s cities

    RE-DWELL Conference 2022

    Responses to different crises allow us to rethink housing conceptions and identify initiatives, policies and patterns that can make a difference for the future. Recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has revealed critical failures of current housing systems and the changing nature of our understanding of housing challenges. Initiatives and collaborations with a transformative potential have emerged or have been reinforced in that context. Moreover, transformations of conceptions, of policy agendas and of professional practices have been steered since a longer time by the recognition of the affordability crisis and of climate change as major challenges for the housing sector. The conference will focus on present or past collaborative initiatives that bring together local actors, from institutions to the third and private sector, regional and central governments, technicians, residents and sometimes academia. We will discuss the potential of such multi-actor processes and of co-creation to adapt the ways we conceive, build and manage housing to present and future challenges that cities face.

    How platforms change food value chains?

    The aim of this seminar is to explore to what extent the development of marketing platforms modifies the interactions between the actors of the agricultural sector. The scientists' view will be confronted with that of Mr. Christophe Alliot, expert at the BASIC office. In a recent report, he emphasized the inevitability and necessity of digital development, but also demonstrated that this dynamic is not without consequences for consumers' eating habits and farmers' production practices. Mixing his expertise with that of researchers and professionals will allow a comprehensive view of the impacts the development of platforms has on the scale of the value chain actors, but also on the scale of the agricultural sector as a whole.

    The Idea of Economic Constitution in Europe: Genealogy and Overview

    The notion of “Economic Constitution” has now become a key concept not only in law, but also in other social sciences (economics, political philosophy, etc.). The 7th Journées internationales David-Constant therefore propose to retrace the somewhat turbulent history of the concept and to study its current relevance within the various (state and supranational) legal orders in Europe. Coinciding with the launch (in Open Access) of the edited volume The Idea of Economic Constitution in Europe. Genealogy and Overview (Brill), this interdisciplinary symposium (held in English and French with simultaneous translation) will gather the nearly thirty contributors to the volume, in order to extend the discussions covered in the latter. Beyond the global overview of the issues in positive and comparative law, the speakers will also question the theoretical and conceptual frameworks that structure the current debates in and across law, economy and politics.
