    The Franciscans in Mexico

    Five Centuries of Cultural Influence

    Generations of scholars have studied the multi-faceted experiences of the Franciscans in Mexico and the ways in which the Franciscan order shaped New Spain and the early Mexican republic. This conference examines the range of Franciscan influence and analyzes new scholarship that focuses on the multiple discourses with which friars engaged native peoples, creole populations, the vice-regal authorities, and other actors throughout the Spanish empire.  The conference brings together junior and senior scholars to study the long Franciscan experience in Mexico on the eve of the commemoration of the quincentenary of the Spanish — and thus the Franciscan— presence in Mexico.

    Futurs planétaires

    In the face of the current ecological crisis, how shall we rethink concepts and practices of environment, ecology, difference, and technology to envision and create a more just, sustainable, and diverse planet? The combined histories of colonialism, extraction industries, energy, as well as innovation in design, architecture, literature and technology offer a lens by which to examine how contemporary techno-scientific societies envision planetary futures. Site visits exploring resource extraction, colonialism in urban policy and planning, and speculative architectural design will be accompanied by an analysis of science fiction, science technology, speculative design and ethnography, as well as life and earth sciences.

    Utopia in a Post-secular Society: at the Cross-sections of Literature and Philosophy

    48th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

    An element that seems to characterize the 20th century reflection on utopia is its secular nature. Through a re-thinking of the place and roles of religion in society, the post-secular turn we are witnessing in recent theory (Habermas, Taylor, Asad, Mahmood) may provide a critical point of departure for questioning this specific aspect of utopian tradition. In this panel, we invite papers that reflect on the relationship between utopia and religion, as it is worked out in 20th century literature and philosophy: How does the place of the utopian tradition change in the context of the “return of the religion” in a post-secular society?

    Alexandre Koyré: Transatlantic perspectives

    This symposium commemorates the 50th anniversary of Koyré's death by focusing on his legacy in the United States. In the 1950s and 1960s, pioneers of the history of science such as Thomas S. Kuhn, I. B. Cohen, Marshall Clagett, Gérald Holton or Charles Gillispie have all admitted his influence on the discipline. The participants will discuss Koyré's impact on the American intellectual landscape and the reception of his ideas among the historians and philosophers who sought to professionalize the teaching of the history of science in the United States.

    1st International Symposium: Hope, Betrayal and Trust

    Part of the Research Program on: Lost Virtues, Found Vices

    This trans-disciplinary research project is interested in exploring the complex and fluid relationships between hope and trust, and how might betrayal play a productive role in this bond. As concepts, ideas or simple notions, hope and trust seem to have simultaneously lost contemporary currency while being ever more necessary in our every day lives. We seem resigned to a kind of hopelessness, seem unwilling to trust others and are ready and willing to betray whomever we might need to in order to advance our own careers or personal agendas. Yet new technologies require us to place personal information online, to communicate with strangers, and to hold onto the promise of happiness. How are our maintenance of hope, our need to trust and our willingness to betray intertwined? How are these concepts evolving?

    [S’]Approprier la ville. Du patrimoine urbain aux paysages culturels

    Une ville peut-elle encore être plus scandinave, plus française, plus espagnole? Ou plus montréalaise, plus londonienne, plus parisienne ? Ce colloque international, [S’]Approprier la ville. Du patrimoine urbain aux paysages culturels, invite à discuter des instruments de la planification urbaine, des outils de la patrimonialisation et des autres moyens mis en œuvre afin de, par delà les faiseurs d’image, penser comment s’aménage le vivre et le devenir-ensemble dans un milieu de vie suffisamment intégrateur et représentatif pour susciter l’attachement et l’appropriation de ses citoyens d’aujourd’hui et de demain. Il s’agit, en d’autres mots, de réfléchir de concert au devenir-ensemble et à l’avenir du génie du lieu. On invite les chercheurs, les décideurs et les praticiens à soumettre une proposition de communication avant le 20 octobre 2011 à : colloqueville@uqam.ca.

    The Western Society for French History

Its international membership includes university faculty and graduate students, independent scholars and amateur historians in the general public from across the United States and Canada, as well as from France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan and many other countries. Drawing inspiration from the frontier spirit of the North American West, it brings together specialists in the study of France and French culture from a wide variety of interdisciplinary backgrounds, beginning with history, but also embracing literary studies, art and music history, as well as political theory, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology. Since its formation, it has encouraged the exploration of French history through an openness to new methods of research, while also continuing to support more traditional fields of interest. Finally, the Society takes pride in its support of graduate education through its scholarship program.
