    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.

    Derrida and the 18th century

    Le colloque international « Derrida et le XVIIIe siècle », organisé à l’école nationale supérieure (ENS) de Lyon en mai 2023 avec le soutien de l’Institut d’histoire des représentations et des idées dans les modernités (IHRIM), se veut un événement transdisciplinaire. 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.

    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.

    Man, space and development in Sub-Saharan Africa

    Collections in honour of Professor Kengne Fodouop

    Tout au long de sa carrière d’enseignant-chercheur, le professeur Kengne Fodouop, s’est investi sur la question des rapports entre l’homme, l’espace et le développement, à l’échelle de l’Afrique subsaharienne. L’utilisation que l’homme y fait de l’espace dans l’optique d’améliorer ses conditions de vie ou d’assouvir sa volonté de puissance, ainsi que les impacts négatifs qui en résultent, ont été au cœur de ses préoccupations de recherche et ont inspiré ses multiples publications scientifiques. À tout bien considérer, les travaux de recherche à l’actif de cette figure emblématique de la science géographique africaine, se rapportent à quatre champs thématiques majeurs : s’accommoder de la ville, les réalités des campagnes, les dynamiques entrepreneuriales et l’équation géopolitique en Afrique subsaharienne. Les mélanges à lui dédiés se proposent de mener les réflexions scientifiques y afférentes.

    Making with the milieu


    Art, design and the mediality of landscape

    This call for paper deals with the ways of making the landscape in art and design and in the media. A symbolic revolution is currently at work, and we would like to report on it and anticipate its possibilities. The Anthropocene paradigm calls for a new conception of the notion of project, understood as the conduct of valuation in relation to the living. More broadly, it is a question of measuring and thinking about the stakes of the present situation by revising the "project values", that is, the relations between situations, means and ends from an ethical, political and aesthetic point of view.

    How Environmentalist Mobilizations Shape Buildings, Cities and Landscapes

    Continuing on the set of concerns explored in issue number 11, “Thinking about Architecture through its Resources,” this issue of Cahiers de la recherche architecturale, urbaine et paysagère (CRAUP) also addresses the ways in which ecological questions affect the design of inhabited spaces, however, it seeks contributions that focus more specifically on the interactions between architectural, urban and landscape professions and citizen-led environmental mobilizations.

    The art press today, towards a reconfiguration of a media genre ?

    La presse culturelle actuelle recouvre des formats extrêmement divers : elle peut être une revue de critique d’art ou d’histoire de l’art, une revue généraliste ou plus pointue, un guide culturel ou un magazine qui traite de l’actualité par le prisme de l’art ou encore une revue consacrée à un art en particulier. Tout ceci sans compter l’incroyable variété de la presse culturelle en ligne, rassemblant des blogs amateurs, des podcasts mais aussi des revues numériques. Ce colloque international a pour ambition d’embrasser cette diversité et entend mettre en évidence la manière dont les médias – traditionnels et en ligne – portent un regard sur les arts plastiques, les arts vivants, l’architecture, le design graphique, le cinéma, la littérature, la musique ou encore le patrimoine.

    The Roving Comic Book: Exchanges, Transfers, Circulation

    « Mémoires du livre / “Studies in Book Culture” » - volume 14, Number 1, Fall 2022

    After their emergence in the nineteenth century, comic books quickly became an important vehicle for transnational exchanges. This issue of Mémoires du livre / Studies in Book Culture proposes a multi-disciplinary study of the cross-cultural transfer and circulation of comics. The notion of “transfer” is understood here in a broad sense, as a process in which objects, ideas and practices are transferred across two or several cultures.

    Chile 1970-1973 in a transnational key. From the “Chilean road to socialism” to the military dictatorship

    Este coloquio busca analizar con una perspectiva transnacional el ciclo clave de la historia de Chile que se extiende desde los primeros días de la Unidad Popular (UP) en hasta el desmantelamiento de la «vía chilena al socialismo» (1970-1973). Nos interrogaremos sobre el impacto y la influencia internacional que la posibilidad de construir el socialismo por vías institucionales ejerció en las diversas fuerzas de izquierda más allá de las fronteras del país. Veremos también cómo el ascenso de Allende activó redes transnacionales de derecha y demócrata-cristianas, organizando transnacionalmente la oposición a la UP. El influjo ideológico del Golpe de Estado de 1973 también será evaluado.

    Rethinking Institutions and Deinstitutionalisation from a Disability Perspective

    2022 ALTER Conference

    On July 7 and 8, 2022, the Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles  will host the ALTER 2022 Conference, on the theme of “Rethinking the Institution and Deinstitutionalisation from the Perspective of Disability”. This conference aims to unfold the notion of institution under all its aspects and in various contexts, from the perspective of different fields and from occasionally distinct positions depending on the country or the disability considered. It also aims to examine the history, the stakes, and the experiences of the various forms of deinstitutionalisation, to trace the possible contours of an inclusive society respectful of the choices of people with disabilities.

    The Aristotelian “Mirabilia”

    This International Conference is entirely devoted to the Mirabilia, a collection attributed to Aristotle since Antiquity, which has probably be composed in the intellectual environment of the Peripatos. Our aim is to provide new insights into this little-known work, which is still historically the first example of what has been called Paradoxography. More precisely, the discussions will deal with the structure of the collection and its epistemology, with its relation to contemporary knowledge – from History to Literary Criticism –, and with its connection with the research led by Aristotle and his pupil Theophrastus.

    Speaking and Writing

    Complementarity, Competition and Hybridization of the Spoken and the Written Word (16th and 17th century Europe)

    The workshop will explore the complex relations between the spoken and the written word in 16th and 17th century Europe. Both modes of expression have been studied in a new light during the last years. But research on the interactions between the spoken and the written word is still at the beginning. It is a promising domain, linked to important questions about Early Modern history and its sources. How did the transitions between orality and writing (in both ways) work out in different situations? When the two modes were in competition, how were choices made and justified? When and where did the spoken word duplicate, complete, moderate, contradict or undermine the written word? When there was complementarity between the modes of expression, what mutual influences can be observed, mainly (but not only) from a formal point of view?

    The Learner at the Heart of Educational and University System

    The third edition of the International Citizen Education Forum focuses the attention of scientific contributors, experts, and citizen actors on The learner at the heart of the education and university system. It offers a moment of pause and reflection to fully grasp the complexity, the paradoxes and the challenges posed by the state of education and the pitfalls that weigh on the basic mission of the school (training, socialization, qualification ) and the university (training, research, services to the community). The dynamic that will be injected by this approach assumes that we are not content to simply grasp the inventory; on the contrary, it calls for projecting multiple and diversified development prospects.
