    Memory and the making of knowledge in the Early Modern world

    While memory is an established sub-field within these disciplines, its themes and sources have led to an over-representation of the ancient and modern worlds, meaning that the early modern era has been comparatively neglected. The School seeks not merely to redress this imbalance, but also to explore how studies of memory and early modernity might shape one another in the future. Participants in the Summer School, which will take place between 18 and 22 September 2017, will have the opportunity to discuss the most recent research presented by leading scholars in the field, to learn or refine skills in workshops that focus on the media and techniques of memory, and to present their own work to a uniquely qualified and supportive international peer group.

Ces recherches portent sur des domaines aussi variés que le sport, le droit, le féminisme, la littérature… Sur tous ces sujets sont mises en évidence des discriminations, systémiques ou non, qui parfois sont cumulées (sexisme, homophobie, racisme, etc.).

    L’histoire, les histoires : mises en récit et mises en scène

    Université d'été ED 483 et 3LA

    Au moment où les sciences humaines et sociales s’interrogent sur leur rôle dans l’espace culturel et politique et sur les modes de communication de leurs savoirs, il est important de regarder aux manières anciennes et nouvelles de tisser le récit historique, de restituer la trame des événements ainsi que des problèmes des mondes passés et présents. Les sciences cognitives nous permettent aujourd’hui de mieux saisir les manières dont les types de récit et de supports sur lesquels ils sont livrés affectent les destinataires. De même, la réflexion des historiens et des littéraires sur les styles de l’histoire nous interroge sur nos pratiques et sur l’avenir de nos disciplines. De plus, l’usage désormais habituel des supports audio-visuels et du web pour faire de l’histoire et proposer des formes nouvelles de narration, ajoute des éléments de réflexion qui nous semblent fondamentaux sur les effets de ces mises en récit pour les destinataires, qui influencent aussi la manière de faire de l’histoire.

    Summer School - Language

    École d’été internationale en linguistique légale

    La pénalisation d’actes de langage – délit d’outrage, diffamation, injure, provocation à la haine, la discrimination ou la violence – va croissant depuis une décennie; par ailleurs, de nombreux besoins légaux ou judiciaires surgissent : traduction de témoignages de locuteurs non francophones, authentification de documents oraux ou écrits, détection du plagiat, des mensonges; enfin, l’enregistrement de plus en plus systématique des interactions entre un plaignant et les autorités policières sur support audio ou vidéo, qui donne la possibilité de les revoir ou réentendre autant de fois que nécessaire, change considérablement notre rapport aux données disponibles pour l’enquête et ouvre de nouvelles voies d’analyse. Dans un tel contexte, il est étonnant que l’expertise des linguistes francophones soit encore si rarement sollicitée à propos des faits de langue incriminés. Car c’est bien de langue ou plutôt de discours qu’il s’agit et les linguistes en sont les spécialistes. Pourtant, si la forensic linguistics a plus de 40 ans d’existence dans de nombreux pays (Pays-Bas, Royaume-Uni, États-Unis, Corée...), elle reste encore méconnue dans la francophonie, tant des personnels de la magistrature et des services policiers que des linguistes eux-mêmes.

    Summer School - Epistemology and methodology

    Early printed books: from the Gutenberg invention to the digital revolution

    Published before 1501, the first printed editions, known as incunabula, first captured the interest of booklovers, researchers, and librarians three centuries ago. Today, knowledge of the output from these first fifty years is more widespread as a result of national and international bibliographical research. An inventory of some 30,000 incunabular books has been compiled, representing around fifty million copies that circulated over a period of roughly fifty years. This summer school aims to increase the participants' awareness of the issues surrounding the description, cataloguing and digitisation of incunabula. It is intended to highlight the interest of a scientific approach, for example by focussing on the conditions in which they were produced and on their content, as well as by reconstructing their journey to the present day through the study of their bindings and marks of origin.

    Planetary Futures

    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.
