    La dynamique de l’identité basque : polyphonie sociale, réalignement politique et recréation artistique (2009-2020)

    « Atlante : revue d’études romanes » numéro 19 (Automne 2023)

    Atlante : revue d’études romanes, publiée par l’université de Lille, lance un appel à contribution pour un numéro consacré au changement des représentations de l’identité basque dans les productions culturelles contemporaines. Il s’agira d’interroger l’impact que la nouvelle période politique, ouverte avec la dissolution de l’ETA et l’entrée du parti EH Bildu au Congrès, a sur les créations littéraires, audiovisuelles et artistiques. L’évolution des sensibilités de la population, en particulier à partir de la tension entre les sentiments basquistes et/ou espagnolistes, émerge dans des romans, séries ou spectacles actuels, nourrissant ainsi la construction d’un discours polyphonique sur l’histoire récente.

    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.

    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.

    Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries

    As part of its research programme “Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The court was a microcosm of society under the Ancien Régime. The royal family and the great noblemen were not only in each other’s company, but they also rubbed shoulders with a whole crowd of office-holders of greater or lesser importance, who ensured the smooth running of this mechanism.

    Transformer et s’approprier l’espace dans les empires ibériques du XVe au XVIIe siècle

    Du XVIe au XIXe siècles, de nombreux territoires à travers le globe sont transformés par l’impérialisme des couronnes espagnole et portugaise. L’appropriation et la transformation des territoires et des paysages jouent un rôle central dans les processus coloniaux des empires ibériques. En interrogeant la transformation et reconstruction spatiale à l’époque coloniale, cette journée d’étude doctorale entend questionner la spécificité des outils et pratiques mis en place dans les empires ibériques pour maîtriser l’espace et exploiter les ressources des différents territoires qui les composent entre le XVe et XVIIe siècle.

    As part of its research programme “The representation of history in the collections of the Museum of the Palace of Versailles” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Five themes will contribute to the ideas about ways in which these galleries can be made more accessible to the public. Indeed, in spite of its gaps, this collection offers strong evidence of a specific view of the history of France that the Museum of the Palace of Versailles should analyse and question today.

    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.

    Histoires familiales, histoire nationale : effets de miroir sur les scènes hispaniques contemporaines

    La prégnance du motif familial, dans les représentations dramatiques dès l’Antiquité, s’est cristallisée depuis le tournant contemporain autour du jeu d’échelle entre famille et nation, offrant un champ de recherches particulièrement riche. C’est pourquoi ce colloque choisit d’examiner, dans le théâtre espagnol et latino-américain aux XXe et XXIe siècles, les rapports étroits entre la représentation des crises familiales et la mise en scène des conflits nationaux.

    Myth: Theories of a Controversial Concept

    The bibliography on modern reworkings of mythical narratives is immense: Greco-Latin myths in novels and adventure films, adaptations of Celtic, Norse, or Slavic myths in cinema, TV series and comics, the relationships between Eastern and Western myths… The list is endless and somehow overabundant compared to the smaller (though still huge) bibliography of theories of myth. Different key factors of our contemporary society (the phenomenon of globalisation, the dogmas of relativism, the logics of immanence) make the definition of myth even more difficult for the non-specialized public and for academic researchers alike. These questions, among others, are those that the 7th International Conference on Myth Criticism aims to answer.

    The Figure of the Multilingual Child in Literature

    Call fot an edited volume

    This edited volume aims to extend the findings of the conference "The Figure of the Multilingual Child in Literature". This edited volume aims at analysing child narrators and/or figures evolving in and between several languages – either because they speak at least two languages, or because their family, school or country is made up of a web of languages.  These child figures can be autobiographical or autofictional shadows of the author. They can also be pure beings of paper. In all these cases, their identity is made of a fabric woven of all their languages, whether they are acquired simultaneously or successively, within the otherness of their monolingual fellow creatures.

    Féminisme(s) en mouvement dans l’aire artistique hispanophone (des années 2010 à nos jours)

    Lors de cette journée d’étude, nous nous proposons d’explorer la polysémie du vocable « mouvement » qui ouvre, à notre sens, un large éventail épistémologique et disciplinaire lié aux féminisme(s) dans l’aire hispanophone (Amérique latine, Espagne et Guinée Équatoriale). Nous recueillerons donc des propositions de communication qui se centreront sur les productions artistiques « en mouvement ». Nous faisons ainsi appel aux chercheur·es spécialisé·es dans les études de genre, les études culturelles, les études hispaniques et hispano-américaines, l’histoire de l’art, les arts plastiques, les sciences politiques, la sociologie ou encore l’anthropologie.

    Analysis of relics, hagiographic legends and Carolingian memories

    Around the body of the Apostle James the Greater in Toulouse

    Since the 14th century, the Basilica of Saint-Sernin in Toulouse has been proud to possess the entire body of James the Greater. After a first preparatory seminar on 11 March 2019 in Toulouse (Vraies et fausses reliques: un vrai faux problème), a workshop was held on 10 December 2021 (Les reliques toulousaines de Jacques le Majeur), focusing on the material aspects (examination of bones, reliquaries, and authentic items). In a final stage, the results of these analyses should be put into perspective during a meeting which would lead to the writing of a monograph bringing together all the studies carried out on the relics of Saint James in Toulouse.

    Spectres précoloniaux et résurgences autochtones dans les arts et la littérature : regards croisés Canaries / Caraïbes

    Ce colloque international vise à interroger les résurgences, dans la littérature et les arts, des mythes et figures des peuples précoloniaux de l’archipel canarien (benahoaritas, bimbaches, canari, gomeritas, guanches, mahos, etc.) et de l’archipel caribéen (arawaks, kalinagos, karibs, taïnos, etc.), depuis le XIXe siècle jusqu’à nos jours. Il s’agit notamment de comprendre dans quelle mesure l’hantologie, « une ontologie assiégée par des fantômes » (Derrida, 2012 : 24), et la spectralité peuvent devenir des prismes pour penser la présence du précolonial dans les arts et la littérature des Canaries et des Caraïbes.
