    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.

    À la recherche d’une identité européenne ?

    Mécanismes, concepts et transferts d’un héritage en adaptation

    Le but de cette journée doctorale est d’interroger le concept d’identité européenne depuis le mouvement des Lumières jusqu’à la construction de l’Union Européenne et l’époque contemporaine. Poursuivant une approche à la fois synchronique et diachronique, l’analyse de ce concept littéraire, politique, social, et historique ermettra de révéler des mécanismes de transfert d’une notion en adaptation permanente selon le contexte historique, géographique et culturel. Confronté à la diversité des connotations du concept identité européenne, les contributions présentées et les échanges qui auront lieu lors de cette manifestation transdisciplinaire permettront une compréhension plus nuancée du processus de transfert d’un héritage en adaptation permanente. En conséquence, cette journée d’étude doctorale sera l’occasion d’un dialogue entre des champs disciplinaires variés, en réunissant des intervenants de domaines comme l’histoire, les lettres modernes, l’histoire de l’art, la traductologie, la linguistique, l’anthropologie, la géographie, la philosophie, la sociologie ou les sciences politiques.

    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.

    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.

    Rythme, corps, narration : études croisées en littérature, danse et musique

    Une « musique dansante » comme un « poème » : c’est en ces termes que Noverre expose dans ses Lettres sur la dance ses idées nouvelles sur la composition du ballet. Du texte à la corporéité, de la partition musicale à la diction, de la voix au mouvement, comment ces disciplines artistiques cohabitent-elles et s’entremêlent- elles dans les pratiques des artistes qui s’y engagent ? Si les cas de figure dans lesquels une danse puise son inspiration au sein d’une textualité (livret, poème , etc.) et s’appuie sur une composition musicale préalable sont désormais largement identifiés, d’autres rencontres artistiques paraissent encore peu documentées : comment, par exemple, des figures kinésiques ou chorégraphiques peuvent-elles susciter des formes musicales ou nourrir une narration littéraire ? Comment une harmonie mélodique peut-elle s’écrire ou se gestualiser ? Ces pratiques transversales et les analyses qu’elles suscitent ouvrent à de nouvelles perspectives.

    The Art Museum in the Digital Age

    The Belvedere Research Center is continuing its conference series on the digital transformation of art museums with its fourth event on the topic. During the COVID-19-lockdowns, the digital presence of museums was no longer merely one possible extension of exhibition spaces, but rather the only way to reach the public. While our conference in 2021 focused on the crisis-related (re)turn to one’s own collections, this time it shifts to questions beyond binary concepts, such as media specificity, hybridity, and mixed reality. In five thematic blocks, the lectures deal with how the digital and the analog can be productively, conceptually, and aesthetically interwoven in a museum setting.

    Plaisir ou subsistance ? Identités et pratiques alimentaires hier et aujourd’hui

    Plaisir ou subsistance. Ces deux notions paraissent souvent diamétralement opposées, mais sont néanmoins amenées à se rencontrer dans une multitude de contextes. Par des sujets tels que l’ascèse, les troubles alimentaires ou même les tabous religieux, cette opposition vise à jeter un nouveau regard sur les pratiques alimentaires et les identités qu’elles traduisent, tout en essayant de redonner à la notion du « plaisir » toute sa légitimité scientifique. Cette journée d’étude s’inscrit dans la tradition interdisciplinaire et transnationale des ateliers organisés par le Groupe interdisciplinaire de recherche Allemagne-France (GIRAF-IFFD), association franco-allemande de jeunes chercheurs. Les contributions, en allemand ou en français, pourront être aussi bien issues de l’histoire ou de l’archéologie, de la sociologie, de l’anthropologie, de la géographie ou encore de la psychologie, sans exclure la littérature et les arts.

    Learning assessment in relation to both national and foreign languages and culture

    Electronic journal “Verbum et Lingua” of the University of Guadalajara

    Verbum et Lingua: Didáctica, Lengua y Cultura welcomes submissions for its special July 2022 issue on learning assessment in relation to both national and foreign languages and cultures. This complex area of knowledge, characterized by a plurality of approaches, tries to respond to different contexts, needs and realities. With the publication of language reference frameworks for the teaching, learning and assessment of languages and cultures, such as the European Common Framework (CEFR) and American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), a new vision of assessment following strictly defined guidelines has been enacted. At present, research in this field has been carried out within institutional frameworks. However, reconceptualization in the assessment of language learning positions it in much more complex contexts as it takes into account technological distance and hybrid teaching tools.

    Islam in popular culture: reconfigurations and new visibilities

    13th Franco-Romanists conference

    Les formes et les dynamiques de la perception et de la représentation de l’islam en France ont fait l’objet d’un intérêt scientifique accru depuis le début des années 1990. L’analyse des pratiques de contrôle et de marginalisation de la religiosité musulmane, ainsi que ses généalogies coloniales, se sont imposées comme un champ de recherche vivant et prolifique dans les études françaises. En revanche, beaucoup moins d’attention a été accordée au phénomène parallèle d’un islam qui trouve progressivement sa place dans la culture populaire. Dans le cadre du treizième congrès des francoromanistes de Vienne, une réflexion conjointe sera structurée autour des représentations populaires de l’islam en France et dans le monde francophone, des nouvelles formes d’expressions de l’islam dans la culture populaire, des espaces virtuels de religiosité musulmane, des discours anti-hégémoniques sur le genre et des discours récents sur le voile et le dévoilement.

    The multilingual city, c. 1250 – c. 1800

    Historical approaches

    Cities are multilingual, but histories of the premodern city too rarely think in detail about the workings of language in urban communities and environments. At the same time, the social history of language has rarely taken into account the spatial dimension of multilingualism in the past. As a centre of political, cultural, and intellectual life, as well as a site of cultural exchange, the city has long been a place of linguistic encounter and of language change, as historical sociolinguists have shown. This workshop will bring historians together to consider multilingualism as a social fact, and to explore the relationship between multilingualism and the development of the premodern city.

    Mass and individual in capital modernity

    The notion of the “mass” is back on the agenda. Recent large-scale popular protests, the extraordinary importance acquired by social networks, the current appeal of conspiracy theories, as well as so-called “populist” phenomena, have triggered a renewed discussion around this concept. Since its emergence at the beginning of capitalist modernity, the idea of the 'mass' has implied a certain reactionary conception of collective action, according to which the individual's judgment capacity is eclipsed by irrational behavior. The First World War and the rise of fascism apparently brought to reality this representation: the individual, weakened by social atomization, succumbed to a tyrannized mass.

    Knowledge - Power - Action

    Congress of the Swiss Philosophical Society

    The relationship between “knowledge”, “power” and “action” affects many areas of social life and individual existence. Let us think, for example, of politics, health care or education: What kind of knowledge is at the service of power? How “having to let know” and “not wanting to know” intersect in clinical practice? How to teach and to learn “to act” and “to be able to act”? In all these areas, philosophy can accompany a careful reflection on the three concepts with the aim of learning more: about “knowledge” in its various forms (theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge, universal knowledge and singular knowledge, rational knowledge and sensitive knowledge); about “power” as the ability to act and produce effects or also as authority and domination; about “action” in its manifold implications, especially about the responsibility towards others that is always inherent in it.
