    Colombian history congress

    Le congrès de Cúcuta de 1821 approuva une constitution dont le principal objectif était la création de la République de Colombie, plus connue sous le nom de Grande Colombie. Issue des mouvements révolutionnaires et militaires qui aboutirent à la formation de gouvernements indépendants et des régimes politiques modernes sur des territoires qui jusqu’alors avaient appartenu aux possessions d’outre-mer des empires de l’Espagne et du Portugal, la Colombie se composait de l’union des actuels États de Colombie, du Venezuela, d'Équateur et du Panama. Le congrès d’histoire à la Villa du Rosaire, tout en profitant de l’actuelle conjoncture commemorative, offre une occasion de réflexion unique sur les indépendances et sur l’histoire contemporaine colombienne en général.

    Delinquency, crimes and repression in History

    The question of delinquency, in the most general sense of the term, is particularly complex because criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, doctors, lawyers, and historians who have studied this subject extensively have often expressed very different and even contradictory opinions. Difficulties arise as soon as the phenomenon is to be defined. In French law, the word “delinquency” designates all types of offenses. These fall into three categories: transgressions; which constitute very light offenses, crimes which are at an intermediate level, and crimes among including murders, non-premeditated voluntary homicides, and the assassinations, premeditated voluntary homicides. In recent years, in many countries, rape has entered this category of crimes. The Arabic language differentiates between delinquency (“inhiraf”) which designates minor crimes and the crime (“jarima”) which applies to the most serious crimes and offenses.

    Commemorating in a global world

    "L’Espace Politique" journal, no.42 (2020-3)

    Ce numéro spécial de la revue L'Espace Politique questionne la commémoration sous l'angle géographique et géopolitique. Alors que s’achève le centenaire de la première guerre mondiale, nous souhaitons interroger à nouveaux frais le phénomène commémoratif et les politiques mémorielles, dont l’étude connait un certain renouvellement (Garcia, 2001, Kesteloot C., Van Ypersele L., 2016). La commémoration recouvre une grande diversité de pratiques loin de se restreindre à la mémoire des guerres (Ashplant, 2000, West, 2016) ou des grandes figures nationales (par exemple incarnées par les panthéonisations en France). Ce numéro pourra ainsi s’ouvrir à une approche élargie du phénomène commémoratif.

    Clausewitz as a practical philosopher

    Special Issue of the Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence

    Clausewitz, still perhaps the most important and referenced theorist of war, was deeply influenced by the thought and philosophy of his own time. Although Clausewitz rejected an abstract philosophy of war, he highlighted that his approach was a philosophical attempt to understand war. His “wondrous trinity,” as well as his dialectics of defense and offense are essentially hybrid conceptualizations. By elaborating the philosophical foundations of Clausewitz’s theory, this special issue aims to contribute to a better understanding of the ongoing transformation of war and violent action in a globalized world.

    Religions and nationalisms

    Au cœur de la vague mondiale et contemporaine des nationalismes, les religions apparaissent comme une ressource idéologique et mobilisatrice. Face à ce phénomène, l’objet du colloque est de se demander comment l’articulation entre nationalismes et religions est approchée principalement du point de vue théologique dans les différentes religions (christianisme, islam, hindouisme, etc.). Peut-on mettre en lumière des méthodologies ou des épistémologies communes qui justifient les idéologies nationalistes (lecture littéraliste des textes sacrés, eschatologie, thème de l’élection, etc.) ? Peut-on penser une théologie du nationalisme qui reste ouverte à l’autre (l'étranger, le non-national) ? Il s'agira ainsi d'étudier le phénomène dans son expression sociologique et politique en son lien avec les discours théologiques.

    The impact of terrorism

    Violence: An international journal

    Terrorism has an impact on the societies that it affects or targets. While this impact can be one-off or limited, nowadays—with the terrorism of radical Islamic groups such as al-Qaeda and, more recently, ISIS—it tends to be heavy and long lasting, even if it does change over time. Its political implications relate first and foremost to democracy and the separation of powers, and can lead to the unraveling and abuse of existing structures, in ways that work to the government’s advantage. If the impact of terrorism is lasting, it becomes cultural: individuals change their habits and behaviors, learning for example not to be passive in the event of a terrorist attack, and going about their daily lives keeping in the back of their minds the possibility that a terrorist attack could take place. Terrorism changes people’s understanding of reality. Terrorism also gives rise to policies that are repressive, but also preventive, or those aimed at exiting violence, using deradicalization programs for example.

    The politics and geopolitics of translation

    The multilingual circulation of knowledge and transnational histories of geography

    In the last fifty years, the field of the history of geography has moved from an approach dominated by National Schools to an attention to the circulation of knowledge in its multiple scales. The history of science and of geography have in the last decades incorporated concepts such as transit, networks, mobilities, the transnational, circulation, centre of calculation, spaces of knowledge, geographies of science, spatial mobility of knowledge, geographies of reading and geographies of the book. More recently, a turn has emerged towards considering the dynamics and necessities of decolonizing the history of geography. This work is turning the field of the history of geography into one of the most dynamic areas of the discipline. Yet we suggest that questions of language and translation have remained under-determined in this new field. Translation and writing have not received the same attention as, for instance, departmental histories, sites of museums, laboratories, botanic gardens, and scientific societies, for example. We suggest, therefore, that new perspectives opened up by translation studies can open new windows on the history of geography.

    Religion and transnational migrations (19th-20th centuries)

    Study day of the French Association for Contemporary Religious History

    Depuis vingt-cinq ans, la question migratoire est prégnante dans le discours politique et médiatique, suscitant débat, interrogation, mais aussi travaux scientifiques. Si les chercheurs ont investi ce champ d’étude, l’analyse des interactions du phénomène avec le religieux est plus récente, mais souligne la place centrale qu’a pu occuper la religion dans les processus migratoires – aux origines de la migration, comme support de celle-ci, comme ressource à la fois spirituelle et sociale pour les déplacés –, et les transformations du religieux qu’ils induisent. La réflexion historique sur les articulations entre religion et migration dans le cadre transnational est à même de compléter ces travaux des sociologues, anthropologues, géographes et théologiens. On considèrera les grands mouvements de population à l’époque contemporaine (XIXe - XXe s.), forcés ou volontaires, sans exclure l’exil ni les migrations plus ponctuelles.

    Documents and documentation: retro-prospective approach

    L'objectif du colloque « Documents et documentation, approche rétro-prospective » est d'interroger le paradigme documentaire dans la première partie du XXe siècle et ses résurgences dans la période contemporaine, sous la forme proclamée ici ou là du « retour au document ». À travers une approche pluridisciplinaire (sciences de l'information et de la communication, histoire, arts, documentation), trois axes de recherche nous permettront de répondre aux enjeux spécifiques liés à ce concept de paradigme documentaire : les formes et matérialités qui résultent des innovations techniques et industrielles ; le renouvellement des modalités de visualisation de la connaissance, entendue comme nouveau langage et enfin l’articulation entre lieux de savoirs et lieux de pouvoirs.

    Democracy and populism: dangerous liaisons?

    Cette journée d’étude à deux objectifs : discuter la pertinence même de la notion de populisme et étudier les modalités de son application dans différents contextes nationaux (France, Italie, Hongrie). Devant la variété des formes de populisme et la banalisation du terme dans le champ médiatique, la notion a été critiquée, affinée voire affirmée. Que faire alors de cette catégorie d’analyse ? Faut-il l’abandonner dès lors qu’elle sert à qualifier des partis aussi divers que le Rassemblement national, la France insoumise, le Mouvement 5 étoiles, la Ligue du Nord ou le Fidesz-Union civique hongroise ? Doit-on y voir avant tout un style politique ? Que nous apportent la science politique, l’histoire et les sciences de l’information et de la communication pour appréhender ces phénomènes ?

    ReThinking Europe in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region

    The 11th annual international conference on Nordic and Baltic Studies

    Brexit has just happened and its consequences are not yet fully comprehended. Would the outcome be a return to a status quo ante the Brentry of 1 January 1973 in British-EU relations? Would Britain become a sort of bigger Norway tightly connected to the EU, but yet not fully a member of the united organization? Would Britain really continue to exist as such? Would Scotland, not to mention other territories, emulate London and decide on their own Brexit, this time from the United Kingdom, in order to rejoin the EU? Would actually Brexit become a pathway for other skeptical EU nations? Would Brexit rocket exclusive forms of nationalisms? Would the whole of united Europe collapse, on the long run, as a result of Brexit as the League of Nations had become toothless after the US Senate had vetoed the Pact of League of Nations? But what effect is going to have Brexit on Scandinavian countries which historically have been closely connected to Britain? How is it reflected in Scandinavian intellectual milieus, in mass-media, in public discourses? What about the Baltic states which received a strong support from Britain in key moments of their history, for instance when Royal Navy came at the rescue of Estonian and Latvian independence following World War I or in the process of re-enactment of Baltic sovereignty after the collapse of the Soviet Union?
