    Catholicism and Anticommunism – The height of Pius XII’s pontificate

    Series of conferences and seminars 2023-2024, Fribourg-Rome-Paris

    From the first condemnation of communism in the Encyclical Qui Pluribus (1846) to the excommunication decrees of 1949, 1950 and 1959, anticommunism seems to be a fundamental reflex of the Catholic Church. Its manifestations range from theology to devotional practices, through the commitments of Christian parties and trade unions. Catholic anticommunism needs to be looked at with a fresh look after the opening of the archives of the pontificate of Pius XII (1939-1958). this series of colloquia and seminars aims to stimulate research in these newly available archives.

    Magnats, entremetteurs et contrebandiers : les distributeurs de films et leurs réseaux au XXe siècle

    Moguls, Go-betweens and Smugglers: Film Distributors and their Networks in the Twentieth Century

    This workshop aims at revisiting the history of film importers/exporters and distributors throughout the 20th century by examining the social inscription of their trade. Moguls, go-betweens and/or smugglers, film traders were main actors in determining the value of films, building film markets, bringing out audiences by giving them (or not) access to the films. Yet, the history of cinema has long ignored the figure of the distributor, too bland to obscure the ethereal figure of the author, too close to the limelight to interest those, less numerous, researching “those wonderful people out there in the dark,” the audience. This workshop seeks to reconstruct the diversity of networks these businessmen/women used to maintain, how they positioned themselves in relation to their peers, remembering that many distributors also acted as exhibitors and producers.

    Matter Materiality

    Materiality, resulting from the effect produced by the properties of matter, is grasped within environments and contexts of reception that are also changing and have nothing fixed or definitive. These properties are manifested through the effects of textures, surfaces, weight, extension in space, format, gestural traces, and material effects... The concept of materiality therefore refers to the fact that the artifacts are composed of materials and, at a theoretical level, to all the processes — technical, cultural and social — that undergird the realization and the material perception of works of art. It is in this spirit that the theme chosen for the 36th CIHA congress is intended. This theme thus provides an opportunity for fruitful intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue on questions that promote a transversal perspective at the intersection of approaches and methodologies.

    Beyond Early Cinema: Persistence of Travelling Cinema Throughout the Twentieth Century

    This workshop will explore travelling cinema practises on a global scale in their historical, material and cultural diversity and will look at the ways in which they interfere with the communal identities of audiences. How communities – understood as porous, linguistic, ethnic, religious groups, crossed by various social and cultural dynamics – structured travelling cinema audiences and, conversely, how travelling cinema screening venues created, reinforced or perturbed community identities? The time span adopted goes from the 1920s to the end of the 20th century, up to the moment when television got rooted in the daily spectatorial practices and the VCR player developed (a point in time that differs according to local media histories).

    Le panhispanisme : tensions, écarts, rencontres

    Société des hispanistes français

    Le mot panhispanisme a toujours fait référence, surtout, à la langue en ce qu’elle constitue le dénominateur commun d’un ensemble de territoires dans lesquels on utilise l’espagnol de façon plus ou moins prépondérante. Le but du prochain colloque international de la Société des hispanistes français (SHF) est de s’interroger, de débattre et d’échanger, depuis des approches et des perspectives variées, sur la notion et la réalité du panhispanisme. L’hispanisme, le lusitanisme, le galéguisme, le catalanisme et l’américanisme sont concernés par cette thématique qui se déclinera en plusieurs disciplines : lexicographie, dialectologie, traductologie, didactique de la langue, analyse du discours, glottopolitique, sociolinguistique, civilisation, études culturelles, études postcoloniales, études cinématographiques et histoire en général.

    The Book in Its Time: Places, Materials, Forms and Techniques

    « Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal », Number 20

    The Book is a phenomenon that combines the fascination of its manifestations of yesteryear to the current debates and practices that announce future paths and dilemmas. We propose in this call an exercise that recovers the procedures and techniques that gained body to welcome another invention, that of writing, which inscribes the history of copyists, printing typographers who moved between cities and countries in search of business, that of their emergence in monasteries, courts, universities, binder workshops and typographies, that of street vendors and that of the production and marketing circuits.

    Languages in European University Alliances: challenges and issues

    Strategic partnerships across the EU between higher education institutions encouraged the emergence of European Universities, a key driver for improving the quality of Higher Education and strengthening links with the European research and innovation landscape, but also with society and the economy. Which will be the role of languages in University Alliances’ strategies for interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches, maintaining different contextual linguistic, rhetorical, and disciplinary traditions? Will multilingualism be enhanced, and with what perspectives? The CEL/ELC (European Language Council) Forum intends to bring together contributions, experiences, and reflections on the role of languages in HELP (Language Policy in Higher Education), on strategies for their valorisation, on intercomprehension practices, on methodologies and actions to promote plurilingualism.

    A Transatlantic Mediterranean?

    Circulations, influences and civilian and military cooperation between the United States and Southern European and Turkish spaces (1945-1980's)

    The objective of this meeting is to contribute to a transnational and decompartmentalized history of the circulations between Mediterranean Europe and the United States between 1945 and the 1980s, which will make it possible to apprehend these relations from a global point of view and to analyze the way in which these links were able to generate circulations of influence between Mediterranean countries. The aim is to combine diplomatic approaches with the socio-history of these actors and with the analysis of the circulation of knowledge and modes of governmentality, by placing Atlantic military issues and policies in the wider context of intellectual mobility and cross-practices. The European and Turkish Mediterranean is understood here in a broad and political sense, from Portugal to the confines of the Anatolian peninsula. Similarly, the ambition is to see how these relations between Mediterranean Europe and the Atlantic space may have had effects on the Southern and Eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, whether during or after the period of colonial domination.

    Conference, symposium - Ethnology, anthropology

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity


    The conference aims to study the hungarian folk movement called “táncházmozgalom” (“dance house movement”). In 2022, this movement celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the first “táncház” (“dance house”, type of traditional dance ball), held in Budapest on the 6th of May 1972. The process of “learning by doing” is a central dynamic to the personal investment of the youngsters in this movement, during the music and dance lessons as well as during the táncházak (dance houses), koncertek (concerts) and táborok (camps). The dance house movement is also very much marked by hungarian ethnography of the XXth century. The practices of dancing and music are anchored in the consulting of numerous works and archives of ethnographic collections from the last century. As such, the “táncházmozgalom” is often called “revival movement” since it brings melodies and steps of rural folk music back up to date in the modern and urban context of Budapest.

    The Middle Ages High and Low: intersections, interactions, debates between academic knowledge and pop culture

    Medieval studies and medievalism both focus on the same object, the Middle Ages. Yet their approaches are different. Long separated, medieval studies and medievalism are now challenged to rethink their links in research, teaching and social dissemination of knowledge. The summer school aims to help young researchers to strengthen their understanding of these scientific developments, to position their research effectively, and to develop networks with international researchers. The school, in French and English, proposes lectures by world-renowned specialists, debates, meetings with professionals and practical workshops.

    Big Tech, Raiders or Gatekeepers of Democratic Interplay?

    This new issue of the Cahiers Protagoras will be dedicated to the discretionary context in which political actors are confronted to new censorship rationales. Contributors are invited to study the relationship of dependency of a political communication increasingly vested into social media, confronted to the opacity of moderation policies and the risk of permanent ban from related platforms. Equally, we encourage researchers to explore how this “politically motivated censorship” enforced by Big Tech catalyses the fragmentation of online public debates and the emergence of dissenting echo chambers.

    History of prehistory in Palestine – Israel

    International workshop

    Our workshop aims to shed light on the various actors and institutions who shaped the field of prehistory from the 19th century until our days. They will allow us to grasp the establishment and development of prehistoric international and local networks on the longue durée. We encourage participants to address the socio-political and cultural contexts in which prehistory was practiced and knowledge produced. Many answers to the above questions and topics of research may be uncovered in personal, institutional, and administrative archives, while others are revealed in excavation reports. This brings us to the last section of our workshop: what sources for the history of Prehistory and how can they be used? Has the writing of a renewed history of the discipline affected today’s research and how?

    Sortir de l’enclos : jardins et politique(s). Histoires, expériences et perspectives franco-allemandes

    Le colloque entend aborder la question des liens entre jardins et politique(s) sous un angle spécifiquement franco-allemand. Il s’agira d’évoquer le rôle des jardins comme symboles du pouvoir politique pour leurs créateurs, mais aussi la manière dont des jardins historiques ont pu être instrumentalisés ultérieurement à des fins politiques. Il sera également question des conséquences des tracés de frontières sur les jardins historiques – de leur destruction à leur reconstruction, sans oublier les opportunités de création de parcs transfrontaliers fonctionnant comme des « ponts culturels ». L’examen de l’importance des vertus pédagogiques et éducatives du jardin permettra l’évocation de problématiques contemporaines, tout comme l’attention accordée à son potentiel sociétal comme lieu d’intégration et d’engagement citoyen.
