    Traces, narratives and representations of cannibalism in Oceania

    Où en sont les connaissances scientifiques à propos des pratiques anthropophages en Océanie, auxquelles il est encore souvent fait référence de nos jours ? Le colloque qui se tiendra à l’université de la Nouvelle-Calédonie propose d’interroger les sources historiques, archéologiques, littéraires, orales, juridiques ou judiciaires qui évoquent le cannibalisme. Nous invitons les chercheur-ses des différentes sciences sociales et humaines à apporter leur contribution à cet « état de l’art », vingt ans après la grande exposition « Kannibals et Vahinés ». La réflexion pourra s'appuyer sur des études de cas, sur une analyse épistémologique ou méthodologique, l’objectif n'étant pas de prouver ou d'infirmer les pratiques cannibales, mais bien d'en interroger les sources, les stratégies d'appropriation et d'en déconstruire les discours.

    Call for papers - Early modern

    Categories, Boundaries, Horizons

    Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies Conference (ANZAMEMS 2019)

    Categories and boundaries help us to define our fields of knowledge and subjects of inquiry, but can also contain and limit our perspectives. The concept of category emerges etymologically from the experience of speaking in an assembly, a dialogic forum in which new ways of explaining can emerge. Boundaries and horizons are intertwined in their meanings, pointing to the limits of subjectivity, and inviting investigation beyond current understanding into new ways of connecting experience and knowledge.
