    Conference, symposium - History

    The Myth of Versailles and European Courts, 17th and 20th centuries

    Ce colloque est organisé dans le cadre du programme « Identités curiales et le mythe de Versailles en Europe : perceptions, adhésions et rejets (XVIIIe-XIXe siècle) » mené par le centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Il a pour objectif d’analyser le modus operandi du mythe de Versailles dans l’Europe monarchique des XVIIIe, XIXe et XXe siècles, en prenant en compte les deux éléments contradictoires mais complémentaires qui caractérisent cette notion : le réel et la reconstruction du réel. L’enjeu sera donc double : cerner comment les différents aspects propres à l’identité de Versailles ont pu nourrir un imaginaire, mais aussi saisir la manière dont cet imaginaire a pu susciter d’autres réalisations – architecturales, rituelles, politiques.

    Concevoir la ville de demain

    The way we live in the 21st century and recent health events have changed the traditional organisation of public space in the city. The social and cultural dimension has been particularly affected. Population flows and their circulation, the organisation of individual and common spaces must be rethought in order to find harmony for everyone. Faced with new ecological, health, social and economic developments, we ask an essential question: What is the city of today made of? How can we build the city of tomorrow?

    La cour se met au vert. Mises en valeur et usages politiques des campagnes entre Moyen Âge et pré-modernité

    The Court escapes from Town. The countryside as political asset from the Middle Ages to the early Modern Period

    The idea of heading off to the countryside is associated nowadays with a wish to get away from a stressful, noisy, and at times oppressive and foul-smelling urban environment, to rest in peace and quiet, in healthy surroundings, in close contact with the bounties of the natural world and animals in their “natural” habitat. Far from any anachronistic intent, applying this expression to court studies is a call to scholars to adopt interdisciplinary approaches to examine the many ways in which aristocratic circles related to and interacted with their rural environment.

    L’esclavage en Afrique : savoirs et décloisonnements

    Slavery in Africa: Knowledge and Openings

    Research on slavery in Africa has benefited from a clear dynamism in recent years, supported, partly, by international research programmes as well as by the publication of many works of reference. The international conference to which our institutions invite researchers and teachers is intended to contribute to this assessment of knowledge about slavery in Africa and to take stock of the most recent significant scientific advances. With an approach promoting interdisciplinary scientific dialogue (history, anthropology, sociology, museology) and dialogue with civil society (through the attendance of anti-slavery associations), the ambition here is to continue efforts to break down barriers between the various regions of the African continent, their historiographies and their stakeholders.

    From Liège to Strasbourg. New Research on the German-French Border Region During the High and Late Middle Ages (11th–16th Century)

    In the High and Late Middle Ages, the border region between the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire was a dynamic space not only in terms of territorial politics, but also in economic, religious, social and cultural terms, which always requires cross-border work in historical research. Despite this elementary precondition, there is currently a lack of cross-national and cross-language exchange, especially for young academics. In order to meet this need, we would like to invite MA graduates and young researchers to present their current research projects to a professional audience and to discuss them within the setting of a young researchers’ conference.

    Psychanalyse et histoire culturelle

    Échanges et confrontation

    Ce dossier de la Revue d’histoire culturelle (XVIIIe-XXIe siècles) intitulé « Psychanalyse et histoire culturelle : échanges et confrontation » présente de la façon la plus explicite et la plus concrète possible les traverses entre sciences humaines et sociales, histoire culturelle et psychanalyse. Il comprend un préalable : le recours à l’hypothèse de l’inconscient ne consiste pas à psychologiser les faits sociaux et culturels mais à dégager l’envers inconscient du fait collectif. Au-delà, il y a là un véritable enjeu pour les sciences humaines et sociales autour des liens entre sujet, symboles et représentations.

    Issue 26.1

    Le Bulletin du Centre d’études médiévales d’Auxerre (BUCEMA) est une revue scientifique à comité de lecture consacrée aux études sur le Moyen Âge. Fidèle à son principe de diffusion de la recherche en train de se faire et librement accessible, le BUCEMA continue à mettre l’accent sur l’interdisciplinarité ‐ sciences humaines et sociales, sciences de la nature et mathématiques ‐ comme le meilleur moyen d’inventer une nouvelle médiévistique. Il est particulièrement intéressé par les contributions proposant des nouvelles méthodes, faisant état d’expériences dans le domaine des humanités numériques (digital humanities) et des nouvelles technologies, s’interrogeant sur les implications épistémologiques et conceptuelles des recherches sur le Moyen Âge.

    The Antiquity and its receptions

    The Summerschool “The Antiquity and its receptions” is  open to doctoral and advanced MA students, specializing in history, art history, archaeology, philology, or any other discipline linked with the theme of the reception of Antiquity. It is international in nature and aims to establish a multilingual dialogue (French, Italian and English) between the different methodologies in use in Europe, North America and elsewhere, and thus to promote interdisciplinarity. At the same time, it plans to test these methodologies in the field, in collaboration with heritage institutions such as museums, archaeological sites, archives and libraries in Rome and Tivoli.

    Historical destinies as the foundation of legitimacy

    The biographical genre in pop cultural studies

    The biographical genre has place of pride in Hollywood and in popular culture in general, understandably so: it brings together the pseudo-legitimacy of the period film and the widespread appetite for tales of remarkable destinies. Biographies can be found in films and series of course, and in traditional or graphic novels , but also in music , stage musicals , and even video game.Rewriting and romanticizing are cornerstones of the genre. They are a way for biographical fictions to turn historical facts into narratives that will be both accessible to the general public and bankable. This raises the question: who is pictured and, to some extent, mythologized, in biographical fiction? The issue of the lack of representation also comes to mind: are there any categories of people whose biographies are not fictionalized, or have only become an object of fiction recently?

    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.

    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?”.

    Caring for the body: the circulation of objects and bodily attitudes in Axis Europe (1930s - 1940s)

    Le sujet du corps dans les mouvements et régimes fascistes n’est pas nouveau dans l’historiographie, mais jusqu’à présent il a été exploré principalement à partir des textes et des images de propagande, des organisations de masse (comme les Jeunesses hitlériennes ou les Balilla), des événements spectaculaires (comme la Coupe du monde de 1934 en Italie ou les Jeux Olympiques de Berlin en 1936), des voyages d’observateurs, d’intellectuels ou de journalistes, ou encore des œuvres d’art et expositions produites par des artistes officiels ou des sympathisants idéologiques. La présente journée d’étude se propose de reprendre à nouveaux frais ce sujet fondamental pour la compréhension des fascismes en partant des circulations d’objets et d’attitudes corporelles.
