    Etty Hillesum. Un siècle après (1914-2014)

    Colloque international

    Les écrits d’Esther (Etty) Hillesum sont pour nous un recueil precieux, constituant une documentation historique très saillante. Ils représentent un reportage au sujet du mal extrême, tel que la persécution raciale et les lagers, ainsi qu’une puissante réflexion philosophique autour de la valeur et du sens de la vie, de l'amour et de la mort. Le Colloque international « Etty hillesum. Cento anni dopo (1914-2014) » (9 et 10 décembre 2014, Université Ca' Foscari de Venise, Italie) veut tracer un bilan de l'œuvre de cet important témoin du XXe siècle.

    Colloque - Religions

    La religion dans les territoires mouvants

    Le colloque de 2014 s’inscrit dans la suite de celui de 2012 qui portait sur religion et territoire. Actuellement, l’Europe fait l’expérience d’une diversité religieuse croissante ainsi qu’un changement important dans la place et le rôle occupés par les religions. De plus, les dynamiques de sécularisation, d’immigration et de croissance de certains groupes religieux, se combinent pour créer une situation nouvelle. Celle-ci suscite des défis sociaux et institutionnels importants, auxquels les réponses apportées diffèrent sensiblement selon les pays et les niveaux d’intervention. Les nations deviennent également des références changeantes, suscitant diverses modalités d’appartenance. Ainsi, le concept de  « territoire »  semble être un angle d’approche fertile pour bien des questions rencontrées lorsque l’on traite de religions.

    Le pur et l’impur

    Hamsa. Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies, nº 2

    Pur et impur constituent des catégories structurantes dans l’islam et le judaïsme, concernant des vecteurs aussi différents que le corps, l’alimentation, le vêtement ou l’espace lui-même. Le deuxième numéro de la revue Hamsa sera consacré à cette vaste thématique, avec la volonté d’aborder des perspectives historiques diachroniques. En ce sens, du reste, on prétend analyser les relations interconfessionnelles dans les aspects où pureté et impureté se manifestent dans le contact avec l’Autre. Cela ne concerne pas seulement les minorités elles-mêmes, mais se reflète également dans la Christianitas, du fait de l’intériorisation de ces concepts et de leur application aux communautés minoritaires, comme c’est le cas par exemple avec la « pureté de sang ».

    Architecture and liturgy: design autonomy and standards

    The second International Seminar offers a new stage of critical reflection on the relationship between the liturgical and ecclesiastical guidelines offered by the Second Vatican Council and church architecture, and propose a reflection on what the terms of dialogue and the interdependence between architecture and liturgy are. The dogmatic constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium is a fundamentally important document in the Church's struggle for renewal with immediate and obvious repercussions on the architectural questions concerning the construction and organization of the celebratory space. Therefore, this Seminar is intended as an occasion to compare and propose various ways of seeing and experiencing the relationship between autonomy and the standard applied to the architectural design, in reference to conciliar liturgical instances.

    European Muslim's Participation in (New) Media

    The increasing growth of the Internet is reshaping Islamic communities worldwide. Non-conventional media and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming more popular among the Muslim youth as among all parts of the society. The new channels of information and news attract new Muslim publics in Europe. The profile of the people using these networks range from college students to Islamic intellectual authorities. Such an easy and speedy way of connecting to millions of people across the globe also attracts the attention of social movements, which utilize these networks to spread their message to a wider public. Many Muslim networks and social movements, political leaders, Islamic institutions and authorities use these new media spaces to address wider Muslim and also non-Muslim communities, it is not uncommon that they also address and reach certain so-called radical groups.

    Emerging Moral Economies in Southeast Asia. Exploring the Symbolic & Material Dimensions of “New Economies”

    Like other regions of the world, South-East Asia has, since the mid-1980s, seen the rise of a new “spirit of capitalism”, linked to the growth of a middle class. Various religious mass-organizations have developed new discourses on wealth and innovative techniques of financing. At their helm, we often find charismatic figures who are responding to the demands of those in search of meaning in an increasingly de-structured modern urban life setting. In doing so, these actors operate on a “spiritual marketplace” characterized by great fluidity and competition. This conference is to look at the different ways through which tensions between religious ethics and economic rationalization are negotiated, both ideologically and institutionally.

    Islam and Regional Cultures in Pakistan

    Journée du CEIAS

    With the hope of throwing new light on the transformations of Pakistani society, this one-day conference intends to move the focus away from two dominant discourses on Pakistan : that is, on the one hand, the security discourse of political and media circles that reduces Pakistan to a state on the fringe of failure, trying to cope with radical Islam and terrorism; and, on the other hand, Pakistan’s official nationalism, which rests on a unitary conception of the nation that disregards the cultural and religious diversity of the country, stressing instead Islam and Urdu as national unifiers while relegating regional cultures to folklore. This conference hopes to partly fill this gap by inviting participants to illustrate the complex, lived experience of Islam in Pakistan, the identity component of religious practices that do not fit in the dominant norm, and their inscription in local political and ethnic relations. Papers would ideally use first-hand observation and/or analyses of cultural productions to examine circumscribed case studies.

    Symbols and Models of the Mediterranean

    The Mediterranean Sea is a milieu in which it is possible to observe, through an interdisciplinary lens, the undertaking of elements defining an idea which conflicts with its immediate sensitive aspect; an idea that arises from life situations and the imaginary world of every man. Nevertheless, it remains a context in which is possible to observe the presence and the constant use of historical symbols, patterns and models of those people inhabiting its shores, as embedded in both the artistic and material production, as well as in the literary one.

    Reforming and Redeeming the World and the Metropolis

    This one-day conference wishes to explore those concurring and complementing aspects and the evolutions that philanthropy underwent between 1750 and 1914 in the British Empire and the metropolis. PhD and postgrad students whose researches focus on philanthropic endeavours and societies, missionary organizations and/or philanthropic literature from the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century are more than welcome to speak on this occasion. Speakers are also invited to reflect on the historiographical perspectives of those issues and discuss their representations and treatment in school curricula, commemoration events and ceremonies, such as the 2007 Bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade in the UK.

    Relations sociales entre les religions

    Numéro thématique de Hungarian Historical Review 2014/4

    The social interactions of individuals and groups belonging to different denominations was and is one of the everyday experiences of social manifestations of otherness. Ever since the Middle Ages, Central Europe has been home to various and varying religious and ethnic groups who have lived side by side. The region has been a meeting point for the Latin, Orthodox, Islamic, Christian, and Jewish worlds, and the Reformation made it even more religiously diverse. We encourage the submission of papers that examine the phenomena of religious and cultural diversity in the region from the perspectives of political history and the history of ideas, and we are particularly interested in submissions that address the social, economic, and cultural aspects of religiously and denominationally diverse coexistence.
