    Home Away From Home

    Seminar HOME II

    Après avoir exploré la relation du sujet aux lieux d’origine dans les narrations contemporaines au cours d’un premier cycle de conférences Home: Heaven and Hell, HOME pousse cette fois l’enquête du côté de la reconstruction d’un imaginaire domestique. Quel est ce nouveau foyer qui suit l’errance, l’exil ou la migration ? Portant cette fois le titre Home Away From Home, ce deuxième cycle de séminaires souhaite interroger les représentations littéraires et artistiques contemporaines des espaces adoptés afin de comprendre comment ceux-ci se construisent en interaction avec un sujet qui voit aboutir sa quête d’un territoire.

    Colloque - Histoire

    The British, American and French Photobook: Commitment, Memory, Materiality and the Art Market (1900-2019)

    Three-day international conference on the Photobook

    This conference is on the social history of the photobook, whether photographer-driven, writer-driven, editor-driven, or publisher-driven. Papers will address: commitment or explicit political engagement; memory, commemoration and the writing of history; materiality (whether real or virtual), and how material form affects circulation, handling, critical responses and the social life of the photobook. Contributors will analyse these topics with respect to the growth of the market for the photobook as a commodity and an object of bibliophilic attention.

    Maternal Sacrifice in Jewish Culture

    Rethinking Sacrifice from a Maternal Perspective in Religion, Art, and Culture

    The phrase “maternal sacrifice” combines two complex terms entangled in an even more complex dynamic. First of all, “sacrifice”, a word whose definitions have been considered inadequate to describe the multiformity of practices and meanings it evokes as a ritual, as a narrative, and as a metaphor. James Watts distinguishes between “narrative traditions about killing people”, oriented towards an evaluation of killing and murder, and “the ritual killing of animals”, focused on the social functions of ritual and religion (Watts 2011, 8). To those categories a third level can be added that is related to the metaphorical use of the notion of sacrifice as the act of giving up something in order to attain a higher goal.

    Dissent Versus Conformism in the Nordic, Baltic and Black Sea Areas

    The tenth annual international conference on Nordic and Baltic Studies in Romania

    In the meanwhile, conformism seems to have pervaded larger categories of public in East-Central Europe and beyond and new “illiberal democracies” evolved. A composite of authoritarian leader and godfather have taken the reins of power in the area. Populist parties and movements are on the rise. Resurgent nationalisms are again offered as a substitute to solutions. The refugee crisis lingers on and no common decisions have been adopted within the EU to solve it on the basis of the European values. The EU institutions are in need of reform and decisions on the course of the organization and its future enlargement process are still pending. The conference aims at analyzing two often interrelated phenomena: dissent and conformism.
