    Writing the Self and the Other: Identity and Societal Issues in Post-Migration Literatures of Muslim Descent in French, German and Italian

    Il s'agit de mener une recherche doctorale financée par l’action de recherche concertée NarraMus, financé par l’université catholique de Louvain. Le projet NarraMus étudie une sélection de textes narratifs d’autrices et d’auteurs de diverses origines ethno-nationales dans des contextes européens de postmigration. Dans une variété de formes narratives allant de la nouvelle au roman en passant par la chanson pop ou rap, les autrices et auteurs illustrent et/ou abordent les « nœuds identitaires », les enjeux, les opportunités et les difficultés d’appartenance ou de référence à des milieux culturels différents.

    Max Liebermann and Italy in the context of German-Italian artistic exchange from the 1860s to the 1930s

    Although Liebermann often travelled to the Netherlands and considered it his “adopted homeland”, Italy also played an important role in his artistic development. Between 1878 and 1913 the painter made at least six journeys there, established contacts with Italian artists and critics and took part in international art exhibitions. His works also found their way into Italian collections. This conference seeks to investigate German-Italian artistic exchange more broadly between the 1860s and the 1930s. and aims to highlight German-Italian cultural exchange by looking at other contemporary personalities.

    Miraculous Images in Global Perspectives

    Images are ubiquitous in the world’s religious traditions – even in those traditions in which their creation and veneration have been highly circumscribed or entirely banned. They can serve as objects or expressions of devotion, as pedagogical instruments, as markers of class or status, and as aesthetic productions in their own right. But not all images are held to be equal. In “Miraculous Images in Global Perspective”, we seek to examine in cross-cultural perspective the phenomenon of images that possess supramundane powers or abilities: to perform miracles, emit light, sweat, bleed, move about, heal, protect and at times even to destroy.

    L’authenticité

    Le terme authenticité recouvre plusieurs définitions selon l’angle considéré : juridique, philosophique, moral, ou dans la vie quotidienne. En didactique des langues, tous ces aspects peuvent être envisagés. Là, le mot « authentique » fait immédiatement penser au « document authentique ». Cependant, l’authenticité en classe de langue s’est étendue à d’autres facettes de l’enseignement : le plagiat, qui, grâce au Web, est devenu la source de documentation principale pour beaucoup d'étudiants français, et la consultation de documents dits authentiques, face à l’essor de la désinformation et de l’infox et de la vulgarisation par rapport aux sources originales. On peut s'intergrer également sur l’authenticité de la communication, écrite ou orale, dans la classe.

    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.

    Engraving dance, music, science and geography

    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.

    Lives of the Dead in Asia

    « Extrême-Orient, Extrême-Occident »

    The dead inhabit the world in their own particular ways. In Asia, where life presupposes that physical substance, spirits and the flow of vital energy are united and held together, the moment of death is one of disjunction, even of dispersion. Faced with this phenomenon, numerous techniques as well as objects of various kinds allow the living to cultivate a relationship with the dead. Both anthropologists and historians have described and emphasised how vividly the dead are present among the living. This topic has seen new developments since the beginning of the century. Faced with the profusion of objects and techniques that allow the dead to evolve in the world of the living, this issue of “Lives of the Dead in Asia” intends to reflect on the ways the different vehicles of existence of the dead are produced and used.

    The web: source and archive

    This international conference proposes to question the place of sources from the web in the scientific field and to situate web archiving practices in plural scientific approaches and questions. The project “Réseau de partenaires pour l'analyse et l'exploration de données numériques” (ResPaDon) brings libraries and research teams together to think, experiment and share practices related to web archives. The main goal is to bring the producers and the users of the web archive collection closer together, with the help and the mediation of academic libraries. In this perspective, the international symposium wishes to develop exchanges of knowledge between STI professionals and scientific teams by engaging the international academic community to participate in its work.

    From the disconnected letters to the science of letters: a meeting of knowledges in the Middle East

    In order to interpret the disconnected letters of the Qur’an (ḥurūf muqaṭṭa‘a), Muslim thinkers have based their work on esoteric concepts, sometimes handed down from Antiquity, which have flourished in Islamic lands under the name of the science of letters (‘ilm al-ḥurūf). This international symposium aims to study the various representations of the mysterious letters within the wider framework of the science of letters, and to put them in perspective against similar readings from languages and cultures close to Arabic. Part of the symposium will be held in the historic citadel of Erbil in the heart of ancient Mesopotamia, “the land of the two rivers”, the cradle of early writing.

    Digital Arts and Humanities in ethnomusicology

    During the Covid pandemic, the academic world turned towards technology, digital tools and alternative media forms not only to support the transmission of ideas, research and teaching, but also to continue carrying out fieldwork. Musicians also adapted their use of these tools by producing sound and music online, which in turn enabled them to explore new opportunities and to engage in innovative collaborations, opening doors to new audiences that had been hitherto inaccessible. Alongside the rise of digital tools, contemporary ethnomusicology is faced with many questions, some of which emerge directly from our experiences over the last two years.

    Intersecting Perspectives: Iconography, Archaeological Remains and Sociocultural Practices of the Ancient Human Societies

    This internationally oriented symposium offers the opportunity to focus on ancient societies for which textual sources are limited and for which iconography can play a major role in their understanding. The aim of this meeting is to highlight the possibilities and perspectives that the iconographic approach can provide but also to consider its limits in order to establish how and to what extent it is possible to use iconography, alone or related to archaeological remains, to clarify the understanding of sociocultural practices.

Il invite littéraires et philosophes, dix-huitiémistes et derridiens à penser la question de ce double rapport, jusqu’à présent rarement appréhendé comme tel : celui qu’entretenait hier la pensée derridienne avec le corpus dix-huitiémiste, et celui qu’entretiennent aujourd’hui les recherches dix-huitiémistes avec la pensée derridienne.

    Epistemology, methodology and reflexivity in geography

    Diversifying and renewing views to embrace the practices

    Subject to the dominant logic of academic productivity, today’s geographers pressured by the lack of time to think about their research and not only about its outputs. Through this first edition “Epistemology, methodology and reflexivity in geography: diversifying and renewing the views to embrace the practices” of the study days of the J.I Geo network, the ambition is to take a step back and reflect on young researchers (postgraduate students and recent PhD graduates), including non-geographers, who use a geographical approach in their work, whether human, physical or geomatic, are invited to contribute to this reflection. We make the assumption conferences tends to standardize the content by formalizing a way of producing thought. This is why these panels will allow longer and freer interventions (video, dialogue, gesticulated conference, participative theater, sound immersion, etc.).

    Training a Language Professional in Morocco in the 21st Century

    What Skills? What Knowledge? What Materials?

    The 2015-2030 strategic vision considers teacher training as one of the main drivers for re-founding the school. Standardized tests from both national and international assessments continue to underline the fact that the results are far from reaching the expected objectives, despite all the efforts made. This low level of our students’ achievements calls into question several variables that interact in any educational situation. In this collective book, we have chosen to approach the parameter in close relation with the “teacher effect”.

    Cordel Literature: new perspectives, new approaches

    Jangada Journal #20

    Due to its thematic, poetic, and expressive diversity, the cordel witnessed, narrated, and recorded several national history moments. Even though only men mastered the art of composing and singing in verse initially, little by little, women also took the stage. Nowadays, poets adjust national and international interest themes to their meter, rhyme, and clause. They denounce the system’s falsities and contradictions; they question decisions and mock hypocrisy without, however, losing that aura of playfulness and wonder that has consecrated the cordel among us. Originally handwritten and later in printed versions, cordel has maintained a strong connection with the voice and culture of fairs and squares, the fey and laughter of rogue heroes, and the feeling of indignation of the less favored and the exaltation of legendary braves since the end of the 19th century. More recent researchers drew attention to the relationship between cordel and its singers’ orality and body performance while singing poetry and African griots. In this thematic issue, we propose to host papers concerning the most varied studies on cordel literature and its cultural practices.
