    Syncope in Performing and Visual Arts

    Presence and absence being at the core of the state of syncope, it is not surprising to see the neo-platonician philosopher Marsilio Ficino including it among the seven states of vacatio in Book XIII of the Theologia Platonica along with sleep, melancholia, temperance, solitude, stupor and even chastity, among the seven possibilities for the soul to escape the materiality of the body. This book project is precisely the third part of the vacatio series in the collection Via Artis after two books on sleep in visual arts. Ficino’s categories are used as impulses and here what we are particularly interested in is not the spiritual aspect of syncope but precisely its materiality, how does syncope manifest or does not manifest itself in performing and visual arts? What is the intention of the artist when representing the syncope? Is it to show who experiences it or what is seen when there is figuration? Or is it above all, to make those who do not experience it feel what is experienced in a state of syncope?

    Colloque - Économie

    Droits fondamentaux, éthique relationnelle et contraintes financières

    The Conference "Basic rights, relational ethics and financial constraints" will explore, from a philosophical perspective, the various ways in which basic rights, interpersonal, professional and institutional relations, and financial constraints interact. Given the gap between the generality of basic ethical principles and the norms of practice in various areas of social life, there is usually no direct or obvious way from principles to detailed and effective regulation.

    Second International Conference on Uyghur Studies

    2e colloque international sur les études Ouïghoures

    The Uyghurs are one of the ten most populous stateless nations in the world. While they have a long history of cultural accomplishments and political influences, they have remained marginal in international scholarship given their ambiguous position both in regional studies and in geopolitics. This conference is the second attempt to bring together a broad spectrum of the international community of scholars whose research is focused on the Uyghur people’s history, culture, society.

    Old Time Accomplices: Mentors and Mentees

    Mentoring in the arts, humanities, social sciences and the professional world

    Despite living in societies increasingly marked by individualism and selfishness, in the modern world we see an increase in mentoring programs. Mentoring is grounded on a mutual commitment towards professional and intellectual development and forges a bond between mentor and mentee. This pattern exists in the academic, professional and private sectors, where coaches of all kinds multiply. We wish to explore the mentor-mentee relationship in an interdisciplinary context. We invite papers which explore the theme and the practice of mentoring in literature, history, art, performing arts, social sciences, and in the professional world.

    Total Mobilization: Web and Social Reality

    What is the web doing? What is the web? What does the web want?

    The web is mobilizing human beings in impressive and unprecedented ways. In order to understand this phenomenon, we should wonder what kind of entity the web is, how it relates to and bears upon human society and culture. The conference aims at doing so by involving scholars who, in their researches, are addressing these issues from different perspectives. e.g. philosophy, cognitive sciences, anthropology, social sciences.

    Beyond the acacia tree: nature, landscape and ecology in Africa

    Africa e Mediterraneo Issue 83/2015

    The empty and uncontaminated landscapes of Africa – that the oriental perspective has idealized with the strong support of the tourism industry, and that have been pictured in stereotypical images (like covers and posters portraying the common acacia tree during the sunset) as opposed to the alienating anthropization of the first world – are nowadays put at risk by a growing and hazardous pollution, as denounced by many.

Pragmatism is here broadly considered as a tradition of thought stemming from philosophy but now clearly present in a number of academic fields such as sociology, law, politics, art, physics, mathematics, anthropology, history, and literature.

    Rewriting: logic of repetition?

    III International Conference in Narratives

    The third International Conference in Narratives, organized by Universidad EAFIT (Medellín, Colombia) and Università degli Studi di Padova, proposes rewriting as an object of reflection from the arts, humanities, social sciences and communication sciences. To interrogate the gesture of writing a text again, it involves accounting for an operation that, in its apparent simplicity, shows the experience of time and repetition, the recording of memory, the tension between imitation and difference, and the means of reproduction and creation. Along its relationships, objects and notions that it implies, the gesture of rewriting is exemplary and heuristic; it has become a model for understanding various phenomena and cultural practices.

    Workplace democracy: arguments, policies, practices

    While democracy is usually taken for granted within the political sphere, it usually draws less attention in the economic realm and our societies tolerate highly undemocratic forms of economic organizations, which prompts many questions: How is it possible to question this asymmetry?  Does justice require democracy in the workplace? How can we make sense of democratic ideals within economic organizations? Is it possible to draw an analogy between states and business firms? Which institutional forms can workplace democracy take? What are the best theoretical frameworks to articulate the ideals of workplace democracy?  This international conference aims to bring together experts in political philosophy, business ethics, sociology, history, political science, economy and management around these issues.

    Theory in Love

    International Comparative Literature Association XXIst Congress - session 17327

    In The Politics of Friendship Derrida reflects on the question of the indecidable possibility, the “peut-être,” of love, of friendship, and of desire: “‘Je t'aime entends- tu?’; cette déclaration d'aimance hyperbolique ne pourrait donner sa chance à une politique de l'amitié que soumise à l'épreuve du peut-être, de l'indécidable” How then can we express a refusal, a no, without listening, without hearing? How can one express the divergent and differential possibilities opened by this phrase? And yet Derrida already has, in Envois, where he explores, theorizes and dramatizes a love affair, tracing the course of its refusal in the various postcards and letters which remain unsent, forever awaiting their destination. This panel concerns theory speaking in terms of love, seeking to establish the relationship between “ l’âmour” and theory.

    Rethinking Academic Paradigms

    Human knowledge ranges from pure science to pure myth. In between lies a broad gamut of conceptually different cognitive experiences and patterns of perception which represent the world in visions and theories. The authority to produce and authenticate/validate knowledge, that which allows for theoretically informed descriptions and explanations of the nature of any given social, cultural or linguistic phenomenon, however, has for years been a contested privilege among academics and field practitioners from myriad disciplines. Over-specialization, a by-product of the proliferation of fields of expertise in academia, presented itself for most of the second half of the twentieth century as a legitimate substitute for holistic knowing and thinking. This reductionist, atomistic doctrine yielded countless fields of study which acted as self-sufficient repositories of knowledge, outmoding Western philosophical, anthropological, linguistic and sociological traditions.

    New Perspectives on Censorship in Early Modern England

    Literature, Politics and Religion

    Placed under the aegis of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), this international conference will reassess the notion and the hermeneutics of censorship in early modern England. How was censorship organized? Did it prevent or promote creativity? Why and when did writers decide to enter "the safe territory of the oblique" (Annabel Patterson)? Participants are invited to provide a variety of interpretative answers and to develop a new understanding of how censorship refashioned the social, political and artistic life of Shakespeare's contemporaries.
