    Prensa, democracia e integración europea, 1975-1996

    L’objectif de ce colloque international est d’aborder le processus d’intégration européenne et de consolidation de la démocratie en Espagne à partir de la presse, en comprenant ces deux processus comme des réalités qui présentent un profil singulier dans leur dimension de « constructions médiatiques ». Seront acceptées les propositions qui analysent les changements matériels qui ont lieu dans la structure de la presse espagnole (économique ou politique) en relation avec les processus de démocratisation et d’intégration européenne ; les recherches qui analysent le contenu publié dans la presse sur la manière dont l’idée européenne est présentée aux Espagnols ; ainsi que les travaux qui étudient les profils individuels ou collectifs des personnes ou des groupes impliqués dans ces processus.

    Correspondance de femmes surréalistes

    Où en sommes-nous près de 100 ans après la publication du Premier manifeste du surréalisme par André Breton dans notre compréhension de ce que Georgiana Colvile et Kate Conley, dans La femme s’entête (1998), ont appelé « la part du féminin » de la troisième avant-garde historique ? Est-il encore nécessaire en 2023 d’ajouter un point d’interrogation, comme les commissaires l’ont fait dans le cas de l’exposition Surréalisme au féminin ? à l’été 2023 au Musée de Montmartre ? Dans le cadre du centenaire du surréalisme en 2024, nous proposons d’organiser un colloque sur un point aveugle des études menées jusqu’à présent : la correspondance des femmes écrivains et artistes associées au mouvement d’André Breton.

    Thinking, practicing and living plurilingualism

    Third edition

    Reflecting the broad themes of this third conference, the three interconnected and complementary verbs of the title reflect an expanded sphere of investigation into language didactics and the construction of plurilingual identities, mostly linked to institutionalized places of learning such as schools or universities but also to other fields and approaches, to other professions and profiles involved in the exercise of interculturality and in the planning or management of plurilingual spaces. This international conference will bring together contributions from specialists in language didactics, didactics of plurilingualism, and language policies, grouped into three main sections for the purposes of fruitful exchange.

    Writing a Decentred and Entangled History of Cinema-Going

    Epistemological and Methodological Issues

    The aim of this conference is to shift the focus of the study of cinema, which is largely centred on Western Europe and the United States. It will bring to a close the 'Faire communauté(s) face à l'écran' research project (Université Paris Lumières, École universitaire de recherche ArTeC), which for three years has been examining the identities of cinema audiences and intermediaries involved in the exploitation and distribution of cinematographic entertainment in the twentieth century from a transnational and comparative perspective.

    Merleau-Ponty’s materialisms

    Journal “Chiasmi International”

    Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology spontaneously evolves in the direction of an ontology, and on several occasions this ontology takes the form of a materialism. Many impulses exert their pressure on the trajectory of Merleau-Ponty’s thought. The Marxism with which he is confronted in the 1950s, the philosophies of nature that converge in his last courses, the great Husserlian theme of the body that explodes in The Visible and the Invisible in an ontology of the flesh. The spectrum of Merleauponty’s materialisms is thus irreducible to any preconceived paradigm and is always intimately embedded in the singular elaborations in which Merleau-Ponty is engaged.

    Visual Dramaturgies (1500-1800)

    Scenography, Costumes and Movement on Early Modern Stages

    The interest of researchers in the visual – and material – aspects of Early modern theatre has increased in the last decade. In addition to the rather developed histories of scenography and dance, an increasing number of publications on the topic of costume, lighting and historical acting have appeared, including more technical studies interested in their production and re- production (see bibliography below). The conference aims to support this trend from a transdisciplinary point of view and to reunite researchers and practitioners interested in Western performing arts (music theatre, dance, drama) of the period between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century in order to share the latest research, compare practices in various periods, countries and theatrical forms, search for convergences and perhaps even debunk some misconceptions about these aspects of theatre.

    Confluences des inégalités sociales dans les littératures et médias francophones

    L’intersectionnalité du point de vue des études littéraires

    Le concept d’intersectionnalité est particulièrement propice à une réévaluation de l’imbrication des rapports de pouvoir entre le passé et le présent. Né à partir du constat de l’existence de discriminations multiples dans la société, ses origines remontent au Black Feminism des années 1970 qui prend en compte les interdépendances entre racisme et sexisme dans la société. Ce terme, qui a été forgé par Kimberlé Crenshaw (1989), s’inspire à la métaphore visuelle du croisement des rues. Depuis lors, la notion d’intersectionnalité décrit différentes formes de discrimination multiple dans la société. Outre les catégories de race, de classe et de genre, d’autres critères de différence et de diversité sociales, comme l’âge, la religion ou la disabilité, sont venus s’y ajouter.

    Social Scientist Approaches To Catholicism in Africa

    There is abundance of literature on African Catholicism but it is unvenly distributed across disciplines in humanity and social sciences. Theology takes the lion's share followed by historical sciences. Overall, Catholicism in Africa has been neglected in the social sciences first in favour of African Independant Churches and, more recently, of Pentecostalism. This volume is interested in contributions which take a social scientist approach (based on empirical data) to any aspect of African Catholicism.

    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.

    Immobilizing the Gaze: the Visual Fabrication of Events in the Early Modern Period

    The aim of this conference is to build a transdisciplinary dialogue to explore how certain perceptions create certain images, convey information and its interpretation(s) around the “event”, broadly understood here as an occurrence perceived as significant, whether it is singular or part of a sequence or even a series of sequences (assassination, conclave, embassy, battle, jubilee, canonization...). The focus is placed on the early modern period because the increase of writing and the greater circulation of images and information “fixed” events on an unprecedented scale; often, these new ways of viewing events were forged thousands of kilometers away from the place where the event occurred. Rome and the Italian peninsula in the sixteenth century will be at the heart of our interrogations both as represented space(s) and as place(s) of projections onto the world.

    Colonialismes et colonialités : théories et circulations en portugais et français

    “Colonialismos” e “colonialidades” são termos empregues no século XX para fazer referência à dinâmica que fundou o sistema-mundo capitalista a partir das colonizações europeias em todos os continentes, perpetuando na contemporaneidade práticas de subalternidades nascidas daquele contexto. Partindo destes dois termos, o colóquio apropria-se de um vocabulário comum: aquele em que a língua portuguesa e a língua francesa se difundiram pelo mundo. Este encontro apresenta os resultados de pesquisa do projeto Circulações da literatura pós-colonial em francês e em português (CILIPO-FP). O desafio de pensar as circulações entre dois sistemas linguísticos complexos e que implicam contextos e historicidades globais, foi lançado a catorze investigadoras e investigadores em 12 universidades, do Brasil, de Portugal e de França.
