    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.

    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.

    Conference, symposium - Ethnology, anthropology

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity


    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.

    Thinking Europe Visually

    L'Europe par l'image et en images

    "If I had to do it again, I would start with culture": this statement often erroneously attributed to Jean Monnet suggests that in the absence of a shared culture, Europe as a political and economic construct remains nothing but a hollow shell. This conference aims to question the disillusioned position which holds that there is no meaningful common European culture, and to do so through images. One way to visualize the potential existence and limits of a European cultural base is indeed to trace the circulation of images – be they works of art, press images, posters, photographs, or even motifs and patterns – in the region, from antiquity through to the present day. What are the images that have circulated most widely in Europe? Are they specific to Europe or are they already globalized? What was their visual and symbolic impact? Is there a "visual culture" specific to Europe and, if so, what might be its distinctive "patterns"?

    Olive4All: The actors of the olive tree heritage and their commitment

    The first conference organised in the framework of the JPI-CH Olive4All project will take place in Kalamata from 28 May to 1 June 2022. It is part of the first workpackage of the project dedicated to the inventory of the olive tree heritage and to the identification of the actors who own it in the three regions of the programme (Provence in France, Messinia in Greece, Tras o Montes, Alto Douro and Alentejo in Portugal). Based on the joint surveys carried out, we will look at the actors linked to the olive tree heritage, the motivations for their commitment to its preservation and the forms of this commitment.

    The Becoming of the Congo: Collaborating, Imagining, Changing

    This new edition of the Congo Research Network (CRN) international and transdisciplinar Congress focuses on the concept of becoming: the becoming of research on/around the Congo (new paths and new links between knowledge andepistemologies, new means of communication (ICTs, new media, videos) and agents - academics,artists, writers, cultural actors, journalists and bloggers, activists and others); the becoming of Congolese culture (new places of creation and exhibition, new ways ofsharing/transmitting knowledge and cultural practices); the becoming of the country and the dynamics of mobility and stability not only in Congo, but also in Africa and the world (anthropological, climatic, epistemic, social, health and economic changes); the becoming of politics, between trauma, memory and resilience.

    Summer School - Middle Ages

    The Middle Ages High and Low: intersections, interactions, debates between academic knowledge and pop culture

    Medieval studies and medievalism both focus on the same object, the Middle Ages. Yet their approaches are different. Long separated, medieval studies and medievalism are now challenged to rethink their links in research, teaching and social dissemination of knowledge. The summer school aims to help young researchers to strengthen their understanding of these scientific developments, to position their research effectively, and to develop networks with international researchers. The school, in French and English, proposes lectures by world-renowned specialists, debates, meetings with professionals and practical workshops.

    Transmediatization and transwriting

    During the last decades, new concepts revolving around mediality and intermediality entered the arena of theoretical debates concerning the links between cinema and the established arts. Our conference aims to reassess two of these terms, namely transmédiagénie (transmediatization) and transécriture (transwriting). André Gaudreault and Philippe Marion’s concept of transécriture distances itself from the old paradigm of “fidelity” toward the original text and rethinks adaptations in accordance with the specific semiotical reconfigurations of the target medium. Transmédiagénie, on the other hand, is a wider notion defined by Philippe Marion as “a narrative’s capacity for star-like expansion, circulation and transmedial propagation.”

    Emerging Terminologies and Specialised Translation

    Issue 1/2024 of the journal Studia Universitatis Babe ş-Bolyai, series Philologia will be focused on interdisciplinary approaches to emerging terminologies and the problems of specialised translation in these thematic and textual contexts. This issue aims to deepen the analysis of and expand debates in the new fields of terminological investigation of lesser-researched specialised domains of the contemporary world, as well as in already existing specialised domains which are enriched by emergent concepts, based on their corresponding neological needs.

    Conference, symposium - Law

    The Idea of Economic Constitution in Europe: Genealogy and Overview

    The notion of “Economic Constitution” has now become a key concept not only in law, but also in other social sciences (economics, political philosophy, etc.). The 7th Journées internationales David-Constant therefore propose to retrace the somewhat turbulent history of the concept and to study its current relevance within the various (state and supranational) legal orders in Europe. Coinciding with the launch (in Open Access) of the edited volume The Idea of Economic Constitution in Europe. Genealogy and Overview (Brill), this interdisciplinary symposium (held in English and French with simultaneous translation) will gather the nearly thirty contributors to the volume, in order to extend the discussions covered in the latter. Beyond the global overview of the issues in positive and comparative law, the speakers will also question the theoretical and conceptual frameworks that structure the current debates in and across law, economy and politics.

    History of prehistory in Palestine – Israel

    International workshop

    Our workshop aims to shed light on the various actors and institutions who shaped the field of prehistory from the 19th century until our days. They will allow us to grasp the establishment and development of prehistoric international and local networks on the longue durée. We encourage participants to address the socio-political and cultural contexts in which prehistory was practiced and knowledge produced. Many answers to the above questions and topics of research may be uncovered in personal, institutional, and administrative archives, while others are revealed in excavation reports. This brings us to the last section of our workshop: what sources for the history of Prehistory and how can they be used? Has the writing of a renewed history of the discipline affected today’s research and how?

    Hybridity: Text, Translation, Teaching

    In our globalized world, life in or with several languages has become a socially accepted fact and is continuously gaining momentum, ranging from simple code switching to such complex and systematic phenomena as diglossia, multilingualism and hybrid teaching formats. This year's symposium will discuss the topic of hybridity from a research and methodological perspective in an effort to raise interest and concern for its complexity and prospects in a research and teaching environment. The discussion of the many facets of multilingualism in its translatory and methodological dimensions will hopefully contribute to greater knowledge and acceptance of this global phenomenon in our everyday lives.

    De Liège à Strasbourg. Recherches récentes sur la région frontalière franco-allemande au Moyen Âge central et à la fin du Moyen Âge (XIe-XVIe siècle)

    La région frontalière entre le royaume de France et le Saint Empire représentait au Moyen Âge central et à la fin du Moyen Âge un espace dynamique, aussi bien sur le plan de la politique territoriale, que d’un point de vue économique, religieux, social et culturel. Les recherches en histoire sur cet espace requièrent donc toujours un travail transfrontalier. Le but du colloque est de fournir à de jeunes médiévistes en début de carrière une plateforme où présenter leurs projets de recherche actuels devant un public intéressé avec lequel ils et elles pourront discuter. Il s’agit également de nouer de nouveaux contacts à travers un échange dépassant les frontières et les barrières linguistiques. Le colloque destiné aux jeunes chercheur·euses se tiendra à l’université de Trèves, située au cœur de la « Grande Région ».

    Pierre Bourdieu and History

    Influences, inspirations, interactions

    The French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu died in 2002. His work continues to be highly influential, as evidenced by an ongoing editorial activity and the international dissemination of his writings. While Bourdieu left his mark on many intellectual areas through the breadth of his theories, he established a privileged dialogue with history as a discipline. Twenty years later, this conference aims to shed further light on the links between history, historians, and Bourdieu’s scientific legacy.

    “Rhythm” in the Concepts of Audio and Visual Arts

    This call is meant to establish communication and interaction between different cultures and to form a scientific community that includes researchers from the ocean to the Gulf, in addition to addressing common civilizational problems. This International Scientific Conference is dedicated to “Rhythm”. Rhythm regulates the durations of sounds in music, supporting its process and layers of its hierarchy to deliver an expressive discourse based on harmony and dissonance, on stillness and sound. Even in the freest melodies (Adlib), the rhythm does not disappear, but rather its presence takes a random, regular shape. Cinema does not differ in the interactions of the image and music, but also indulges in the manifestations of rhythm to imbue the viewer with sensory interactions that oscillate between tension and calm.
