    Au commencement était un récit… dénouements possibles pour une histoire tue

    Francophonies itinérantes – Colloque international 2022

    Maïssa Bey a toujours conçu son activité comme un labeur pour faire sortir du silence les voix des victimes oubliées, tout comme de leurs bourreaux, de l’histoire de l’Algérie. Nous souhaitons organiser un moment de rencontre, de réflexion et d’échange autour de l’œuvre de Maïssa Bey, aussi dans une perspective de comparaison avec d'autres écrivain·e·s, en posant une simple question : comment arrive-t-elle à écrire les blancs de l’histoire de l’Algérie ? Notre but est de faire dialoguer des chercheurs et chercheuses qui s’inscrivent dans une pluralité d’approches en sciences humaines et sociales (historiens, littéraires, sociologues, anthropologues, psychanalystes, etc.).

    Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico

    V edizione

    Following the successful results of last year's series of seminars, the PhD students belonging to the Anthropology of the Ancient World curriculum of the PhD course in Classics and Archeology would like to promote a fifth cycle of seminars of the series Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico. The series is characterised by a particular interest in the different methodologies and research perspectives which represent the main fields of enquiry of anthropology of the ancient world since its first development (with the works of Gernet, Vernant and Detienne), but it also focuses on how different inter-discipliary approaches can contribute to its constant innovation. In addition, one of the main goals of this year's edition is to create a meeting point for scholarship on antiquity and contemporary debate on its reception in modern societies, underlining the cultural, social and ideological aspects which spark from the interection between present and past.

    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.

    Between ethics and semiotics. Signs and nature in the Anthropocene era

    “Filosofi(e)Semiotiche” journal (Il Sileno Edizioni), volume 9, n. 1, 2022

    The Anthropocene, unlike other previous eras, is commonly recognized as the era in which the impact of human beings is most incisive in determining the dynamics of the climate and the planet in which we live. With this Call we intend, therefore, to highlight some aspects of the Anthropocene in order to suggest a rethinking of the relationship between human nature and the surrounding environment ; this will allow us to specify how ethics and semiotics can be used in a rethinking of these two categories, and, in general, of the link between language and nature, which inevitably involves the need to review our ways of “making world”.

    Principles and actions for second language training, in migratory and pandemic contexts

    This call for papers follows on the colloquium held in Metz in September 2018 and is based on the various measures put in place to welcome migrants through language training. As the context in which we work has evolved, our thinking and actions now take into account the health crisis, which has multiplied the fragilities and vulnerabilities that had increased by the turn of the century with globalization, and even more so, the migration flow, which involved and still involve the responsibility of host societies. As for the new fragilities and vulnerabilities that have emerged in the pandemic context, they concern in particular the freedom of mobility, access to online courses, and the impacts of social distancing.

    The Antiquity and its receptions

    The Summerschool “The Antiquity and its receptions” is  open to doctoral and advanced MA students, specializing in history, art history, archaeology, philology, or any other discipline linked with the theme of the reception of Antiquity. It is international in nature and aims to establish a multilingual dialogue (French, Italian and English) between the different methodologies in use in Europe, North America and elsewhere, and thus to promote interdisciplinarity. At the same time, it plans to test these methodologies in the field, in collaboration with heritage institutions such as museums, archaeological sites, archives and libraries in Rome and Tivoli.

    Transcrire l’oralité politique dans l’Italie communale (XIIe-début du XVe siècle)

    La prise de parole en assemblée caractérise la vie politique et institutionnelle de l’Italie communale. Pour autant, notamment en raison du manque de discours conservés, les travaux consacrés à la transcription de l’oralité politique et à la diversité de ses expressions (au-delà de l’assemblée) sont encore rares. Cette journée d’étude, qui se tiendra à Rome le 28 avril 2022, est envisagée comme un atelier d’échange permettant la mise en commun de travaux réalisés ou en cours sur cette thématique. Elle a pour but d’engager des chercheurs et chercheuses aux approches méthodologiques distinctes dans une lecture collective de la spécificité des sources écrites transmettant une oralité politisée. L’objectif est de dégager des grilles d’analyse conjointes, des problématisations transversales et de nourrir une réflexion commune sur les apports et les limites d’une histoire du monde communal fondée sur ces documents.

    À l’occasion du sept centième anniversaire de la mort de Dante (14 septembre 2021), l’académie française de l’eau, l’institut culturel italien et l’Ambassade d’Italie proposent un après-midi d’échanges franco-italiens consacré à la représentation que Dante fait des fleuves et de l’eau dans toute ses formes, symboles et significations. Une nouvelle lecture « éco-critique » de la littérature dantesque est aujourd’hui possible, afin de restituer la richesse des métaphores aquatiques dans leurs rapports avec l’environnement.

    The question of the emancipation of women in Italy (1815-1930)

    Le colloque sera centré sur les discours produits au XIXe siècle et au début du XXe siècle sur l’émancipation des femmes en Italie dans toute leur variété et leur complexité, y compris les discours opposés à l’indépendance féminine. On prêtera une attention précise aux multiples déclinaisons du féminisme en Italie (les revendications des écrivaines, des « émancipationnistes »-emancipatrici, ainsi que des défenseurs des droits des femmes) au-delà de la tendance hagiographique qui a consisté à présenter des biographies élogieuses et idéalisées des femmes d’action du Risorgimento, ainsi que des interprétations historiographiques qui ont souvent réduit les positions féministes aux revendications suffragistes. Les récentes recherches en histoire culturelle, qui ont considérablement élargi l’approche de l’histoire des femmes au cours de la période de la construction de la nation italienne, seront ici mobilisées pour faire émerger des lectures originales et présenter des pensées méconnues.

    Incontri su Dante

    Argomento dell'incontro è il linguaggio che risuona nella terza cantica: tema 'doppio', da intendersi sia nel senso delle peculiari modalità espressive cui fa ricorso il poeta, giunto alla fase conclusiva della sua fatica, sia nel senso delle forme con cui è la dimensione paradisiaca stessa a 'parlare', non solo per verba, ma anche e soprattutto tramite coreografie di luce, preghiere equivalenti a musica, stupende visioni.

    “Celui qui parle, c’est aussi important !” Forms and variations of author-function in linguistics, philology, and literature

    Since the 1960s there has been much critical reflection on the figure of the author, and this has been analysed from several angles in linguistic and literary studies as well as more recent forms of web writing in the wake of the digital revolution. First, structuralism and Saussurian theory laid the groundwork for the renewal of Literary theory. The “death of the author” propounded by Barthes (1961) offered the chance to redefine the essence, the role and the status of the author. The first person to accept this challenge was Michel Foucault, during his lecture Qu’est-ce qu’un auteur? at Collège de France, on 22 February 1969. Beyond the limits of historical and ideologically connoted analysis, debate on the matter is far from settled. On the contrary, the authorial question offers food for thought in different fields of linguistics, philology and literature. If the modern concept of author called for reflection on Beckett’s provocative “qu’importe qui parle?”, even today the number of issues that can be investigated in relation to the author prove how important this is for all three aforementioned disciplines.

    Science and madness, extravagance, exception

    Alchemists, magicians, outlaw scientists in italian culture

    This volume aims at exploring the ways of science as excess and madness (see Zangrandi 2011, 2017; Garlaschelli and Carrer 2017) or, in less tragic forms, as an opportunity to explore new paths of knowledge. Another goal is to shed light on the character’s evolution, tracing the roots of a literary and cultural trope that, since the 20th century, takes on multiple configurations and plays manifold functions. Looking back to the past, this theme can be traced in the Romanticism’s rejection of the exact science and in the particular declination proposed by Leopardi in his Operette morali, or even in the disquieting image of the alchemist of the Renaissance, whose superior knowledge of natural phenomena turns into the extreme and a punishable hybris.

    Intersections. New perspectives for public humanities

    HFC-INT 2020

    The international network Humanities for Change, in accordance with the interdisciplinary spirit and the contaminatory approach that characterize its activities, intends to organize a day of study on the theme of public humanities. The meeting aims to stimulate some reflections coming from different fields of knowledge and to encourage the dialogue between researchers on the possibilities of the humanities to escape from academic circles. In this sense, the main object of study is the analysis of methodologies and tools related to knowledge dissemination practices for historical, artistic and philological-literary disciplines. Particular attention will also be given to new professional figures connected to the degree courses of the humanities faculties (such as the 'public historian') and to the interactions of these professional figures with the new media of communication and mass dissemination.
