    Histories of Photography from the Struggles for Independence: practices, circulations and aesthetics

    It's a well-known fact that the history of photography as a discipline has for the most part been constructed as that of "Western" photography, more specifically that of Europe and the United States. Between the introduction of so-called "extra-Western" photographers on the contemporary art market since the 1990s and the numerous works on the history of the medium during colonial periods, there is still a lack of information on the history of photography from the liberation and independence struggles onwards, from a global and transnational perspective, across all geographical zones. The aim of this colloquium is to highlight the histories of photography generated during the processes of decolonization, while rethinking methodological and aesthetic approaches to the medium that are still too Western-centric.

    Architecture of the Past: inspiration for the Future

    Architecture, in response to universal needs, has developed in various forms, in diverse environments, and consequently offers a multiplicity of solutions. This diversity of construction types is of interest to numerous disciplines that do not often have the opportunity to exchange ideas. The aim of this interdisciplinary event is to bring together archaeologists, historians, architects, artisans, conservators, restorers, and ethnologists to share their work and research on architectural practices and structures that are relevant to approach current and future environmental, social, and economic challenges. This event will also discuss how the architecture of tomorrow is also invented with an eye to the past, whether it be sophisticated or vernacular, regardless of materials, period, or geographical and cultural area. A list of themes are suggested and detailed in the full call for proposal.

    En el laberinto cortesano

    Poder, arte e identidad en tiempos del duque de Lerma

    En 2025 tendrá lugar el cuarto centenario del fallecimiento de Francisco Gómez de Sandoval y Rojas, I duque de Lerma, constituyendo esta efeméride una oportunidad para re­flexionar sobre su figura y su tiempo. Lerma es, sin duda, una de las personalidades más fascinantes del rico y sugestivo panorama del Siglo de Oro español, tan compleja como controvertida y cuya lectura exige una perspectiva multifocal que permita acercarnos a su poliédrica personalidad.

    Activists in Exile. Gender, Political Commitment and Migration in the Twentieth Century

    The aim of the symposium is to highlight recent developments in research on migrant activists, exploring the interactions between gender, political commitment and migration in the twentieth century. Proposals may focus on women's engagement, masculinities or gender relations in militant contexts. How does gender influence militancy in migration? And how do political commitment and migration influence gender relations and the construction of femininity and masculinity?

    The Role of Women in Decorative Arts and Design in France (1850 to the Present)

    Women played an important role in the history of decorative arts and design. Recent exhibitions (Here We Are! Women in Design 1900 – Today at the Vitra Museum in 2021 and Parall(elles): A History of Women in Design at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2023) displayed an overall approach of the question. But in some countries as France, what is the state of the issues and how is the contribution of women to be placed in this general context? This conference aims to discuss and to provide a state of research on the question but also to shed light on an aspect of artistic creation. It aims also to give an overview of the evolution and role of women in the decorative arts and design in France since the mid-19th century, in order to complete a current knowledge related to an ongoing field of research in the history of art and creative industries.

    Seminar - History

    Political, cultural and intellectual South-North circulations in the post-Bandung era: towards a connected history of the Commonwealth

    By choosing to focus on South-North circulations, this seminar is dedicated to the deconstruction of the “British Empire” as a homogeneous category to write and think about the intellectual, artistic, and political histories of the people who circulate and inhabit this polity known as the Commonwealth of Nations in the post-Bandung era. Working from the assumption that committed artists, intellectuals and political activists from the Global South have networked and connected within this space, we seek to interrogate the counter-hegemonic nature of the knowledge, theories and artistic practices produced during the post-Bandung era. We thus call for the study of the circulation and transfers of political and cultural ideas but also the intellectual trajectories of individuals, collectives and institutions.

    Prensa, democracia e integración europea, 1975-1996

    L’objectif de ce colloque international est d’aborder le processus d’intégration européenne et de consolidation de la démocratie en Espagne à partir de la presse, en comprenant ces deux processus comme des réalités qui présentent un profil singulier dans leur dimension de « constructions médiatiques ». Seront acceptées les propositions qui analysent les changements matériels qui ont lieu dans la structure de la presse espagnole (économique ou politique) en relation avec les processus de démocratisation et d’intégration européenne ; les recherches qui analysent le contenu publié dans la presse sur la manière dont l’idée européenne est présentée aux Espagnols ; ainsi que les travaux qui étudient les profils individuels ou collectifs des personnes ou des groupes impliqués dans ces processus.

    Échappées belles

    Correspondance de femmes surréalistes

    Où en sommes-nous près de 100 ans après la publication du Premier manifeste du surréalisme par André Breton dans notre compréhension de ce que Georgiana Colvile et Kate Conley, dans La femme s’entête (1998), ont appelé « la part du féminin » de la troisième avant-garde historique ? Est-il encore nécessaire en 2023 d’ajouter un point d’interrogation, comme les commissaires l’ont fait dans le cas de l’exposition Surréalisme au féminin ? à l’été 2023 au Musée de Montmartre ? Dans le cadre du centenaire du surréalisme en 2024, nous proposons d’organiser un colloque sur un point aveugle des études menées jusqu’à présent : la correspondance des femmes écrivains et artistes associées au mouvement d’André Breton.

    Writing a Decentred and Entangled History of Cinema-Going

    Epistemological and Methodological Issues

    The aim of this conference is to shift the focus of the study of cinema, which is largely centred on Western Europe and the United States. It will bring to a close the 'Faire communauté(s) face à l'écran' research project (Université Paris Lumières, École universitaire de recherche ArTeC), which for three years has been examining the identities of cinema audiences and intermediaries involved in the exploitation and distribution of cinematographic entertainment in the twentieth century from a transnational and comparative perspective.

    Climate Change and Human-Environment Interaction in the Caucasus

    Geo-bio-archeological and literary perspectives

    Joining forces between scientists of different disciplines and countries in order to register the various data about the human interaction with the environment in moments of crisis throughout history, should help us to prepare solutions for this near future. For a proper estimation of the whole chain of (probably catastrophic) events which could affect a country like Georgia, land of the Golden Fleece, we need to consider the whole circuit of the peak water, from the melting glaciers to the high mountain lakes, the river basins, their deltas and the sea. The climatic, geomorphologic, ecologic modellings must be related with ideas from arts and humanities as well as social sciences, in the longue durée, in order to anticipate the societal changes of the next generation. Based on our previous research on the geohistory and geobio-archaeology of the Black Sea, the Colchis lowlands, on rivers – including the mythical Phasis – and lakes, this meeting is intended as a kick-off for future international and interdisciplinary collaborations.

    Visual Dramaturgies (1500-1800)

    Scenography, Costumes and Movement on Early Modern Stages

    The interest of researchers in the visual – and material – aspects of Early modern theatre has increased in the last decade. In addition to the rather developed histories of scenography and dance, an increasing number of publications on the topic of costume, lighting and historical acting have appeared, including more technical studies interested in their production and re- production (see bibliography below). The conference aims to support this trend from a transdisciplinary point of view and to reunite researchers and practitioners interested in Western performing arts (music theatre, dance, drama) of the period between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century in order to share the latest research, compare practices in various periods, countries and theatrical forms, search for convergences and perhaps even debunk some misconceptions about these aspects of theatre.

    Confluences des inégalités sociales dans les littératures et médias francophones

    L’intersectionnalité du point de vue des études littéraires

    Le concept d’intersectionnalité est particulièrement propice à une réévaluation de l’imbrication des rapports de pouvoir entre le passé et le présent. Né à partir du constat de l’existence de discriminations multiples dans la société, ses origines remontent au Black Feminism des années 1970 qui prend en compte les interdépendances entre racisme et sexisme dans la société. Ce terme, qui a été forgé par Kimberlé Crenshaw (1989), s’inspire à la métaphore visuelle du croisement des rues. Depuis lors, la notion d’intersectionnalité décrit différentes formes de discrimination multiple dans la société. Outre les catégories de race, de classe et de genre, d’autres critères de différence et de diversité sociales, comme l’âge, la religion ou la disabilité, sont venus s’y ajouter.

    Forests in transitions

    Concepts, methods, assessments and prospective

    The symposium will address a highly topical issue: forests, in all their diversity (planted or spontaneous; urban or rural ; temperate, tropical, boreal...). They appear to be in “crisis” at a time of climate change (fires, diebacks, etc.), and their management is raising concerns (some criticize clear-cutting and the “industrialization” of forests, which is symbolized by monospecific plantations, etc.).

    Safeguarding the health and safety of children in agriculture

    Webinar 2023

    Worldwide, agriculture is among the most dangerous industries and one of the few that consistently involves children. Whether children are working or merly present in the farm worksite, they are exposed to a wide array of agricultural-related hazards which results in these children experiencing high rates of injuries and fatalities compared to children in the general population. Understanding and addressing children health and safety issues in agriculture is important from a public health and child advocacy perspective. Safeguarding children in agriculture also connects back to the social and economic sustainability of farm labor systems.This webinar invites to shed light on the health and safety of children in agriculture in Northern and Southern countries with an emphasis on family farm systems and to support the development of a network of scholars and practitioners working on these topics.

    Social Scientist Approaches To Catholicism in Africa

    There is abundance of literature on African Catholicism but it is unvenly distributed across disciplines in humanity and social sciences. Theology takes the lion's share followed by historical sciences. Overall, Catholicism in Africa has been neglected in the social sciences first in favour of African Independant Churches and, more recently, of Pentecostalism. This volume is interested in contributions which take a social scientist approach (based on empirical data) to any aspect of African Catholicism.

    La première république en images. Génèse, circulation et postérité d’une imagerie politique

    Proclamée le 11 février 1873, la Première République espagnole représente, en un sens, la culmination du processus révolutionnaire inauguré par La Gloriosa quatre années auparavant. Cependant, en raison sans doute de son caractère éphémère, son histoire est généralement englobée dans des études plus larges sur la période révolutionnaire ou sur le républicanisme en tant que pensée politique. Il en va de même de l’ensemble des images politiques élaborées durant la Première République et qui sont rarement analysées en tant que corpus plastique à part entière. À l’occasion des 150 ans de sa proclamation, ce colloque entend examiner cet épisode historique qu’est la Première République espagnole à l’aune de l’iconographie politique à laquelle il a donné lieu, afin de récupérer et d’historiciser les images de/sur cette période tout en leur rendant leur identité et leur(s) significations(s), aussi bien dans l’Espagne péninsulaire et insulaire qu’à l’étranger.
