    Intermediality in Architecture. Representation and the Aesthetics of Reflexivity

    “Clara. Architecture/Recherche” - Volume 9, 2023

    The journal Clara invites proposals for its next issue on the contemporary intermedial condition of architecture. The issue aims to study how architectural design, as a projective and representational practice, unfolds through a series of media that continually refer to one another.

    Comparing Rivers: Aquacritical Perspectives across History and Literature

    This call for paper is a special issue journal proposal. We look for new eco-orientated interpretations of rivers in different cultural sources and for other people and their river-related studies. We expect the potential authors to investigate new or revisit well-known sources, both elite and popular, within what we call the aquacritical perspective of river-centred analysis. This river-centric approach may involve sources across genres and periods to show how they contribute to unexplored river people adaptation cultures, e.g. how such people coped with the elemental nature of rivers, negotiated their space in the riparian landscape, and encoded ecological knowledge that survived in the memory of culture.

    Memory and Identity in North Africa

    This conference aims to reflect on a rich array of memory-focused topics, including performance rituals, celebrations, festivals, objects, places, literature, artifacts, and specific historical moments using the interdisciplinary methodologies honed in Memory Studies. We seek papers that draw on Memory Studies to reflect on issues related to identity, history, historiography, commemoration, remembrance, and changing conceptions of the self and the collective in North Africa. Thus, we ask how much memory is present in the North African spheres? How have memories of the past in North Africa been promoted and appropriated for the sake of a more flexible public sphere? Who are the memory stakeholders? How do they mobilize memory? What place do minority memories occupy in the grand narratives of different states? Can ‘subaltern’ memories exist and be performed in public?

    The “Map of the Absentees”: Cartography, Memory, History of post-revolutionary Iran

    Maps are like icons showing, on a small scale, how space is organized and shared inside the urban frame. If they are always involved in the processes of power, and they are the tool of the dominant group and symbolically strengthens its authority, they are also the tool of representation of space. They provide a visual material base to the narratives and to the discourses related to the space. Therefore maps allow artists to intervene, which means, to investigate differently on space, to represent and to bear witness to the unseen which can then get a precarious visibility.

    Relational chains

    Theme issue for the ARCS journal - analysing networks for the social sciences

    In social network analysis, a distinction is made between approaches based on personal networks and those based on complete networks. While they allow for the precise documentation of network structures, these approaches have difficulty in capturing one-off situations of activation of “weak” ties. The aim of this issue is to present work on the study of relational chains in the various fields of social science.

    Naturalism in Painting 1870–1905

    Conference of the Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest

    Perceived as the dominant artistic trend of the last third of the 19th century, yet, still difficult to delineate, Naturalism raises a number of conceptual issues. Naturalism, perhaps the most significant trend in European painting in the 1880s and 1890s, was present simultaneously in other European countries only a few years after its emergence in France, and appeared in equal quality from Scotland to Russia and Spain to Hungary. In order to better understand the current of Naturalism, the research group “Realism and Naturalism in Hungary and in Europe based at the Hungarian National Gallery is organizing a 2-day international conference.

    Re-Thinking Photobooks: Media constellations in Media Constellations

    In the workshop and in the edited volume set to ensue, we invite participants to explore how both canonical and/or understudied examples have contributed to the structure and history of the “photobook format” as it relates to other forms and genres. We aim to carve out how the photobook crafts a – dynamic – medial identity of its own in this intermedial network. By addressing the photobook as a media constellation in media constellations, the workshop and the ensuing publication suggest that what distinguishes the photobook as an object of photo-historical inquiry is its very intermedial history.

    Montesquieu, A Philosopher for the Early American Republic?

    The conference will focus on showing how the Founding fathers used Montesquieu’s theories. Obviously, the Founders of the American Republic were not scholars, but first and foremost, political actors of their time. They did not read Montesquieu for the sole pleasure of it, but above all to find answers to some pressing and daunting issues: Was it possible to adopt a republican government for a territory so extended? Was the representative government the good remedy to such a problem? How to distribute power in order for despotism to be avoided? Was federalism the unique way to preserve a republican form of government in modern times? Those difficulties would appear as pertaining per se to the realm of political philosophy. Nevertheless, what may be unique in the case of the early American Republic, is the fact that solving those issues was a matter of life and death for the young body politic.

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity

    FolkFocus

    The conference aims to study the hungarian folk movement called “táncházmozgalom” (“dance house movement”). In 2022, this movement celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the first “táncház” (“dance house”, type of traditional dance ball), held in Budapest on the 6th of May 1972. The process of “learning by doing” is a central dynamic to the personal investment of the youngsters in this movement, during the music and dance lessons as well as during the táncházak (dance houses), koncertek (concerts) and táborok (camps). The dance house movement is also very much marked by hungarian ethnography of the XXth century. The practices of dancing and music are anchored in the consulting of numerous works and archives of ethnographic collections from the last century. As such, the “táncházmozgalom” is often called “revival movement” since it brings melodies and steps of rural folk music back up to date in the modern and urban context of Budapest.

    Photography of Persecution. Pictures of the Holocaust

    Rather than treating photographic images taken under Nazi rule as self-explanatory, immediate, and self-contained, this conference invites interested scholars to approach photographs as they would other documents – by treating photographs as objects of historical inquiry and interrogating the political interests authorizing their creation, the material conditions under which they were produced, the editing process out of which they emerged and were displayed, and the uses to which they were put. The conference will focus on the photographic record of the persecution of Jews in Nazi-dominated Europe, including its overseas possessions from 1933 to 1945.

    Lessons of the Cold War?

    Visegrad Scholarship at the Open Society Archives

    We invite historians, researchers, political scientists, sociologists, and socially engaged artists to reflect on the Lessons from the Cold War by taking cues from the Blinken Open Society Archives (OSA) collections. The applicants are encouraged to reflect on the connections as well as on the differences between current times and the past by following some recommended sub-topics. The current call is part of a reflexive-research program at OSA interested in connecting past issues related to oppressive regimes, censorship, violence and information manipulation to current phenomena. We would like to assess the potential of a genealogical project linking the contemporary epistemic and political crisis of democracy to past modes of inquiry and activism.

    International Symposium on Comparative Didactics (ISCOD)

    The symposium provides a unique opportunity for researchers in the emerging field of comparative didactics to meet across national, cultural, and disciplinary borders, and to initiate collective and individual projects. Whether conceptual or empirical, research in comparative didactics relates teaching and learning to curricular documents and to various societal and cultural matters. While subject didactics has several active networks, there are few meeting points for scholars in comparative didactics. Featuring state of the art keynotes, the suggested conference is designed to become a starting point for the development of a comprehensive communication infrastructure for European researchers in comparative didactics.
