    En el laberinto cortesano

    Poder, arte e identidad en tiempos del duque de Lerma

    En 2025 tendrá lugar el cuarto centenario del fallecimiento de Francisco Gómez de Sandoval y Rojas, I duque de Lerma, constituyendo esta efeméride una oportunidad para re­flexionar sobre su figura y su tiempo. Lerma es, sin duda, una de las personalidades más fascinantes del rico y sugestivo panorama del Siglo de Oro español, tan compleja como controvertida y cuya lectura exige una perspectiva multifocal que permita acercarnos a su poliédrica personalidad.

    Alternative Mediatization of Politics: Self-Media, Web TV, and Opinion Channels

    Altermédiatisation du politique : self-médias, Web TV et chaînes d’opinion

    The forthcoming issue of the Cahiers Protagoras invites authors to delve into the mechanisms by which the (ideological) monopoly of information is circumvented and challenged. Another objective is to comprehend the mediagenic strategies deployed by political actors — mediagénie, defining their inclination to “achieve their full potential by choosing the media partner that suits them best” (Marion, 1997). Evaluating the mediativity [médiativité] of these new political communication mechanisms (each medium possessing a 'specific imaginary') is another potential area for analysis. Finally, an examination of moderation and regulation practices specific to these emerging media spaces is anticipated.

    Summer School - History

    Summer University dedicated to Food and Drink Studies

    Since 2003, our summer university has positionned itself as a leading platform for reflection on new research in Food Studies. After several thematic editions, this 2024 edition will continue its ambition to provide a resolutely broad overview of these fields of research from a multidisciplinary perspective. Over the last twenty years or so, new themes have emerged and given new impetus to research in food studies. How do they fit together within the various disciplines of humanities and social sciences, from anthropology and history to sociology and literary studies ? How can young researchers position themsleves in relation to the wide-ranging possibilities offered by this field of research ? Leading specialists from different disciplinary backgrounds will address these questions through the prism of their own research.

    Activists in Exile. Gender, Political Commitment and Migration in the Twentieth Century

    The aim of the symposium is to highlight recent developments in research on migrant activists, exploring the interactions between gender, political commitment and migration in the twentieth century. Proposals may focus on women's engagement, masculinities or gender relations in militant contexts. How does gender influence militancy in migration? And how do political commitment and migration influence gender relations and the construction of femininity and masculinity?

    Seminar - History

    Political, cultural and intellectual South-North circulations in the post-Bandung era: towards a connected history of the Commonwealth

    By choosing to focus on South-North circulations, this seminar is dedicated to the deconstruction of the “British Empire” as a homogeneous category to write and think about the intellectual, artistic, and political histories of the people who circulate and inhabit this polity known as the Commonwealth of Nations in the post-Bandung era. Working from the assumption that committed artists, intellectuals and political activists from the Global South have networked and connected within this space, we seek to interrogate the counter-hegemonic nature of the knowledge, theories and artistic practices produced during the post-Bandung era. We thus call for the study of the circulation and transfers of political and cultural ideas but also the intellectual trajectories of individuals, collectives and institutions.

    La néo-réaction

    Extrême droite et mouvements antidémocratiques en Amérique latine au XXIe siècle, dans le contexte numérique

    Cette journée d'étude a pour objectif d'aborder des mouvements néo-réactionnaires de caractéristiques et d’ampleur diverses que se sont consolidés dans le contexte latino américain ces dernières années et qui représentent un risque non seulement pour la démocratie, mais aussi pour l’idée même de politique. Ces phénomènes correspondent au spectre que constitue l’extrême droite, et auxquels on fait référence aujourd'hui avec les notions de « néo-fascismes », « post-fascismes » ou de « néoconservateurs ». On parle même de « populismes de droite » ou « fascisme démocratique » et certains proposent l’idée d’une nouvelle « extrême droite 2.0 ». Par ailleurs, dans le contexte de l’Amérique Latine,  il existe un assemblage de plus en plus consolidé entre ces mouvements et les groupes de pouvoir traditionnels. Cela a recueilli un soutien grandissant parmi des secteurs plus larges de la population, en corrélation avec des conditions de vie marquées par la précarité et un cadre institutionnel qui ne s’est jamais affermi, entraînant un mécontentement généralisé.

    La première république en images. Génèse, circulation et postérité d’une imagerie politique

    Proclamée le 11 février 1873, la Première République espagnole représente, en un sens, la culmination du processus révolutionnaire inauguré par La Gloriosa quatre années auparavant. Cependant, en raison sans doute de son caractère éphémère, son histoire est généralement englobée dans des études plus larges sur la période révolutionnaire ou sur le républicanisme en tant que pensée politique. Il en va de même de l’ensemble des images politiques élaborées durant la Première République et qui sont rarement analysées en tant que corpus plastique à part entière. À l’occasion des 150 ans de sa proclamation, ce colloque entend examiner cet épisode historique qu’est la Première République espagnole à l’aune de l’iconographie politique à laquelle il a donné lieu, afin de récupérer et d’historiciser les images de/sur cette période tout en leur rendant leur identité et leur(s) significations(s), aussi bien dans l’Espagne péninsulaire et insulaire qu’à l’étranger.

    Some Case Studies from the Roman and Late Antique Periods

    The collection of case studies which were presented in 2018 and 2020 as part of the DANUBIUS project gave rise to a whole series of new historical questions and unexpected results. Some of the main elements of the dossier will be published in a supplement to the Frontière·s journal. The aim of this call for papers is to complete this dossier with some new cases studies, mainly for the regions that were not represented or less represented during the 2018 and 2020 workshops: Britain, Gaul, Germany, Caucasus, North-Eastern Anatolia, the Middle East and Egypt.

    Interdisciplinary Franco-Latin-American perspectives on challenges related to the environment

    Since the 1970s, environmental issues have continued to grow. Indeed, we have moved from a localized perception of environmental damage to a global understanding of the risks associated with climate change and their impacts on socio-ecosystems. In order to better respond to the challenges and stakes of the environmental crisis that is impacting us, it seems appropriate to share and make known the experiences and theories developed from different continents, cultures and geographies in order to enrich our object of study. In this regard, this Congress, which will be held from October 23 to 27, 2023 in Costa Rica, proposes to offer perspectives on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies on environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity, resilience, global health, payments for environmental services, etc.

    Democratic Representation in and by International Organizations

    International organizations (IOs) play a central role in contemporary international law-making: they institutionalize many of the processes through which international law is adopted today, be it through international law-making conferences, international courts or as IO secondary law. Yet, the question of democratic representation in IOs, but also by IOs when they become members of other IOs or intervene as participants in other international law-making processes remains difficult, to say the least.

    Armenian Diaspora(s) in Motion: Places, Stakeholders and Practices in the 21st Century

    Since diaspora studies emerged in the 1980s, the Armenian dispersion has played a prominent role in the scholarly literature seeking to understand and classify the nature, forms, and effects of diasporas as social formations. However, 40 years after the rise of diaspora studies, one has to admit that far from offering a stable paradigm, the Armenian diaspora (an expression that should be used in the plural) has undergone numerous transformations. The objective of this 2-day conference will be to reflect on these contemporary reshapings of the Armenian diaspora(s), revealing their diversity and the new dynamics at work.
