    Knowledge productions and their diffusion in Protohistoric societies: comparative and multidisciplinary approaches

    This international symposium brings together transdisciplinary researchers in order to renew the outlook on European Protohistory. Protohistoric societies having left few texts, can sites or artefacts tell us about the immaterial production of knowledge? Recent researches on comparatism, in archaeoastronomy, ethnomathematics, paleopathology or bioarchaeology, show that these societies produced knowledge and transmitted it, raising the question of the exchange of this knowledge and technologies. The texts produced by the contemporaries of the Celts show a complex and codified culture, corroborated by the found artefacts. Our gaze must therefore depart from a disciplinary compartmentalization, researches combining archaeology, astronomy, artificial intelligence, mathematics, provide interesting answers on this question.

    Meeting of Young Researchers on Heritage and Territory studies

    EJI-PATER III (2022)

    The aim of this meeting is to restore the opportunity to share  scientific perceptions, projects, and research recently developed, or currently under development; counteracting the drop in output motivated by the pandemic and the impact of war in Ukraine. Centred on a unifying, convergent, and urgent line, the main theme for this meeting – Circular Ciência em Património e Território – results from its two core themes, that promote interdisciplinary discussion, involvement, and interdependence between different scientific areas, through the emerging and vital vision of circularity.

    Artificial intelligence and social equity conference

    Le développement de l’intelligence artificielle (IA) a ouvert les champs du possible. En effet, l’IA joue un rôle de plus en plus important dans nos sociétés. Nos vies sont régies de manière croissante par la diversité des applications techniques associées à l’IA. C’est pour cela qu’il est important que le développement de l’IA se fasse conformément à des valeurs centrées sur l’humain, telles que les libertés fondamentales, l’égalité, l’équité, etc. Ce colloque se fixe pour objectif de générer une convergence des savoirs par une approche interdisciplinaire sur les implications de ce développement technologique sur l’équité sociale.

    Ecological histories of photography. Science, politics, philosophy, materiality

    Revue « Transbordeur. Photographie, histoire, société »

    Using a long-term historical perspective, this issue of Transbordeur will examine the relationship between photography and ecology as understood in multiple ways: 1) ecology as an interdisciplinary science that emerged in the nineteenth century, 2) the specific political agenda of different movements defending environmental causes as public concern for them increased significantly in the second half of the twentieth-century 3) ecology as the object of social and philosophical movements which have brought into question the binary opposition of nature and culture in Western society, and finally 4) the ecological impact of the photographic industry in its dependence on extraction, petrochemical derivatives, and more recently digital technologies.

    New Perspectives on the Impact of Avicenna upon Sciences and Philosophy in Europe

    L’objectif du colloque est de faire le point et de définir les grandes lignes de la recherche future sur l’Avicenne latin, compris de façon globale, et sur l’influence de ces textes dans le contexte européen. Comment définir la nature et l’étendue de l’impact du corpus avicennien sur la pensée et la science en Europe ? Quelle est la spécificité de l’Avicenne latin par rapport à l’Avicenne tel qu’il est connu dans son environnement d’origine, dans la compréhension de son système comme dans la place de celui-ci dans les développements ultérieurs ?

    Images of Body, Travel, Science and Empires (XVIIIth-XXth Centuries)

    Au moment où l’anthropologie s’institutionnalise en tant que discipline, la plupart des anthropologues étudie les populations extra-occidentales depuis les métropoles, sur la base de corpus visuels et matériels collectés in situ par des voyageurs. Avant l’événement de la photographie et du cinéma, cette pratique se fonde d’abord sur les dessins et ses avatars (aquarelles, peintures) ainsi que sur les moulages des corps réalisés d’après nature. Ce workshop se propose d’engager une réflexion sur ces représentations corporelles réalisées par des voyageurs, terme commun qui regroupe des aventuriers, ethnographes, anthropologues, géographes, marchands, militaires, missionnaires, ou encore naturalistes.

    Crafts, trades and the dissemination of knowledge in the 18th century

    The expression “danse gravée” has long designated 18th-century dance notation practices, since the diffusion of the Feuillet notation from 1700 onwards. The repertoire of engraved contredanses, published and distributed in the form of collections of small notebooks or booklets, notably from the 1760s and the Répertoire des bals de La Cuisse, is relatively well known. The place of women engravers, editors and booksellers will be widely discussed during these days. The aim is to understand how 18th century choreographic practices fit into a network of printmaking know-how, from technical engraving to semi-fine printmaking.

    Changement climatique et santé en Afrique : état de connaissances et mesures d’adaptations

    Climate Change and Health in Africa: State of Knowledge and Adaptation Measures

    Le climat de la planète change rapidement et va continuer à long terme à cause des activités humaines. Ce changement climatique caractérisé par la hausse des températures, l’élévation du niveau de la mer, la répartition des précipitations et la fréquence ainsi que l’intensité des événements météorologiques extrêmes constitue un risque certain pour la santé humaine. L’objectif de cette journée d’étude pluridisciplinaire est de rassembler des travaux récents sur les liens entre les changements climatiques et la santé en Afrique, pour montrer les enjeux liés aux effets présents et futurs du changement climatique sur la santé humaine d’une part et d’autre part, de réfléchir sur les stratégies d’adaptation et des mesures de résilience qui protègent et favorisent une bonne santé et un bien-être des populations, particulièrement les plus vulnérables.

    What Latin America says to Europe: circulations, imaginaries, viewpoints (and fantasies)

    We often tend to think of Latin America as a periphery of the global space. The very idea of globalization is frequently equated with that of cultural “Americanization”. Understood as a “United States of America-nization”, it is generally considered only as a circulation of ideas, models, knowledge, techniques or cultural objects from the North or the West to the South. However, working on Latin America frequently leads us to encounter traces of it or to identify its influence in Europe. Politics, culture or knowledge: the objective of this conference is to study some of the diverse forms of Latin American presence in Europe and/or in the European gaze. The works discussed here will take these circulations as an object, analyzing their processes, forms and impact. But they can also take a more reflexive form, by questioning the status of European-based researchers interested in Latin America.

    The Aristotelian “Mirabilia”

    This International Conference is entirely devoted to the Mirabilia, a collection attributed to Aristotle since Antiquity, which has probably be composed in the intellectual environment of the Peripatos. Our aim is to provide new insights into this little-known work, which is still historically the first example of what has been called Paradoxography. More precisely, the discussions will deal with the structure of the collection and its epistemology, with its relation to contemporary knowledge – from History to Literary Criticism –, and with its connection with the research led by Aristotle and his pupil Theophrastus.
