    Between Art and Life: the Gargantuan World of Medieval Laughter

    For this special issue of Vox medii aevi, dedicated to the modern interpretations of medieval humour, comedy, and laughter, we invite original research addressing the subjects of perception and appropriateness of laughter in the eyes of the church and lay authors and authorities; laughter as a form of mystical experience; ritualized laughter; laughter as a didactic weapon; laughter as an instrument of social control; and gendered experiences of laughter.

    1917-2017: Comparative Looks on the Soviet Artistic Avant-Gardes

    The Soviet artistic avant-gardes have been raising a specific interest for a long time. For instance, their multiple practices, their theoretical apparatus, their opuses as well as the influences they exerted have been largely surveyed by the academic world. Ever since the 1990’s a reappraisal of the multiple reuses and reinterpretations of those “avant-gardes” have been carried out. Our international symposium aims to question and put into context that reappraisal and the renewal it induces in the field of scholarly research. The year 2017 as an historical landmark, the centenary of the Russian revolutions, offers a conducive environment for such reflections and thoughts. While evocating various and contradictory narratives, this centenary leads to rethink the vast array of meanings embodied by the revolutionary events as well as to shed a new light on the opuses they produced or lived through.

    From Bordeaux to Saint Petersburg, Marius Petipa (1818-1910) and the "Russian" Ballet

    The great academic ballet, known as « Russian ballet », is the product of a historical process initiated in 18th century in Russia and completed in the second part of 19th century by Victor-Marius-Alphonse Petipa (1818-1910), principal ballet master of the Saint Petersburg Imperial Theatres from 1869 to his death. The Bordeaux symposium will launch a wide range of events which will culminate in 2018 in Marseilles, Marius Petipa‘s hometown, where the bicentenary of his birth will be celebrated.

    Passé, présent, avenir de l'Islam en Russie : entre la recherche et le discours public

    La situation politique, économique et sociale de la Russie a été marquée depuis le milieu des années 2000 par une remontée de la xénophobie, dans son expression islamophobe en particulier, dont maints observateurs donnent pour raison l’intensification récente des migrations de travail en provenance du Caucase (Nord et Sud) et de l’Asie Centrale anciennement soviétiques. Ces trois dernières années, en outre, les lendemains de “printemps arabes” créaient dans l’opinion russe l’impression, entretenue par le pouvoir politique et les média, d’une coalition d’intérêts antirusses au Proche-Orient alliant puissances occidentales et pays de la péninsule Arabique soutenant l’aile la plus religieuse des mouvements révolutionnaires sunnites actuels.
