    Rencontres d’histoire et de philosophie des sciences

    The seminar Rencontres d’histoire et philosophie des sciences aims to promote a history and philosophy of science in which, in the words of Aldo Mieli (1935), “the unity of scientific thought” is “brought to the forefront, in relation to the multifaceted developments of particular sciences”. In order to do this, it seems imperative to us to involve all those who have an interest in the history and philosophy of science in its most diverse expressions in order to consolidate a community which, to exist, must regain its collegiality.

    The Boundaries of Water

    Frontière·s. Revue d’archéologie, histoire et histoire de l’art

    By its nature, its cycles and the diversity of its states, watermaterializes different notions of the border. It can representand indicate a limit, a rupture, a separation betweenspaces and human groups. Conversely, it is also a mediumof exchange and contact between communities andacts as a bridge between the terrestrial and spiritual worlds. For this seventh issue, the authors are invited to examine, amongother things: the physical boundaries of water as topographic and hydrographicobstacles, political and territorial boundaries, the social boundaries of water and symbolic boundaries based on the values attached to water.

    Telling, exhibiting and commemorating minority histories in the United States

    U.S. museums and historic sites, and minority narratives

    Critical perspectives have contributed to the development of research on minority histories, which can be approached in two ways: on the one hand from the point of view of the domination that is exercised, on the other hand from the point of view of the experiences of members of the minority. Minority narratives mobilize collective memories and processes of patrimonialization and different mediations of history, notably in the school and medias. We propose to focus on one of their concrete forms, namely museums and heritage sites. Museums are indeed at the focus of political and historiographic issues in the way they articulate, or not, the narrative of minorities and the national narrative.The question of the mediation of history, here approached through the prism of museum institutions and heritage sites, as well as the articulation between past and present, will be our focus.

    Did you say “authentic”?

    6th International Doctoral Days of “Transitions” (ULiège)

    On the 5th and 6th of May, 2022, the sixth edition of the Research Unit Transitions (Research Department on the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period)’s international Doctoral Days will be held at the University of Liège. Organised in partnership with the Centre d’études supérieures de civilisation médiévale (CESCM) of the University of Poitiers, these days will be structured around the theme of authenticity. The notion of authenticity is by its very nature polysemous and complex to define. The aim of these Doctoral Days is to examine authenticity in its various meanings and according to the various methodological approaches pertaining to different fields of research. The presentations will be oriented according to two distinct, but complementary axes: “The object to the test of time” and “Authenticity, a guarantee of truth?”.

    Crossed views on the construction of river landscapes

    Today's rivers are the result of a complex and continuous metamorphosis in which the human footprint has become major since the industrial revolution. Its recent impact has largely obscured the characteristics of older river landscapes. The aim of this conference is to question, in an interdisciplinary perspective, the sources for studying the dynamics and/or the social, technical, legal and political contexts of fluvial or fluviomaritime spaces, to outline their reconstitution and to model their evolution until the beginning of the 20th century. Facilities and port spaces, temporalities of construction of fluvial landscapes and causes, modalities and consequences - ecological, hydrological, archaeological - of the transition to new landscape sequences will be questioned.

    What is a flag? Socio-history of political unveiling

    World, 19th-21st centuries

    What is a flag? The question is apparently very banal. Many works are interested in its symbolism. The symposium intends to take a step aside. The flag as an expression, minor, major, of a political unveiling (the flag is considered here as a latent ready-to-use resource), will exclusively hold our attention. The meeting will not only focus on national emblems. The flags of the unions, of the movements of identity claim, the banners of the supporters or those used in apparently folkloric frameworks have their place there as soon as their uses, the gestures and the practices of their actors formally or informally register on a political terrain.

    Scientific congresses and knowledge networks

    Issues and methods for processing event participation data

    This research day focuses on scientific congresses and conferences as both geographical and disciplinary spaces for the circulation of knowledge. Emphasis is placed on the methods available for studying data on events’ participation, noting that unlike the study of bibliographic corpora, which benefit from well-stabilised bibliometric methodologies, the study of scientific events not as well established. Different approaches will be addressed: ethnography, analysis of co-participation networks, content analysis. By bringing together historians working on congresses from the turn of the 20th century with social scientists working on congresses from the second half of the 20th century and today, the day will bring out similarities but also differences in approaches, types of sources, questions and methodological obstacles.

    Whither the Spiritual? Rethinking Secularism’s Legacy in post-Ottoman Art

    This dossier examines—and challenges—the implications of art history’s secular tilt—what Shaw has called an over-reliance on “Christian-based ideas of visuality” - on the study of modern and contemporary art from the Middle East. It aims to consider what new explorations in this field can offer for rethinking both art history and spirituality’s relationship to empirical argument and experience as cornerstones of modernity in a western modality.

    Xérographie : artistes femmes (1965-1990)

    Xerography: Women Artists, 1965-1990

    This symposium offers a state of the field reflection on women artists’ use of xerography, a practice that, to date, has not been the subject of any in-depth study. Appearing in the artistic field during the 1960s, xerography (from the Greek xeros, “dry” and graphein “to write”) appears as an in-between practice bordered upstream by photography and downstream by the advent of the digital image. While male artists did explore the new technology in their work, the emergence of this phenomenon and its development, particularly on American soil, were essentially the work of female artists. Xerography was an Intermedial practice par excellence; it challenged the notion of medium specificity by the production of an infinitely reproducible mechanical image and was thus experienced as a threat to the dominant doctrine of medium specificity.

    Climate change and digital sound and audiovisual preservation

    IV International Congress of Digital Archives

    El cambio climático es el proceso que pone en riesgo la vida, la salud y el desarrollo de las naciones. De acuerdo con la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, en muchos países las temperaturas han presentado niveles máximos sin precedentes, los niveles de gases de efecto invernadero están aumentando, el nivel del mar está subiendo y los desastres naturales se agravan. Las soluciones encaminadas a crear economías verdes y sustentables van acompañadas de cambios en diferentes aspectos de la actividad humana. La investigación científica ocupa un espacio relevante y necesario para formular aportaciones que minimicen el impacto del cambio climático en la sociedad. Uno de los ámbitos poco estudiados, con incidencia en el cambio climático, es el relativo a los archivos digitales sonoros y audiovisuales. No obstante que la preservación digital de archivos sonoros y audiovisuales genera de forma constante basura tecnológica y requiere del uso continuo de energía.
