    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.

    Blended learning of foreign languages: A new reality in higher education

    Over the last decade, there has been a shift in education strategies from traditional methods of instruction to a more innovative methods of teaching, involving information and communication technologies (ICTs) and social interaction mediums. The theory of integrating ICTs in foreign language education combined with classical ways is a good example of what educationists call blended learning (BL). Attempting to put this theory into practice, this conference is expected to bring together different experiences of scholars worldwide to synthesize a common framework for action. Exploring teachers and students attitudes towards using different BL methods would familiarize practitioners for more professional development.

    Le corps envahi dans la littérature italienne (XIXe-XXIe siècle)

    Depuis quelques décennies ont fleuri les études, qui, dans des champs disciplinaires très divers, ont renversé la primauté traditionnelle que l’Occident octroyait à la dimension psychique de l’être humain (esprit, âme, intellect) pour faire place au corps, non comme simple substrat matériel et biologique, mais comme construction historique au statut varié, pensé et envisagé selon des perspectives culturelles très différentes, et pris dans un réseau dense de relations sociales, politiques et symboliques. Portés par ce mouvement, nous nous proposons d’examiner le rôle que joue la littérature dans la définition de cet habitat véritable des êtres vivants, et plus précisément, de mettre en évidence les différentes formes d’« invasion » qui se font jour dans la littérature italienne depuis le décadentisme jusqu’à nos jours.

    Voix du poème en prose

    eLyra nº 19

    Ce numéro de la revue eLyra cherche à interroger et à remettre en perspective le poème en prose et / ou l’œuvre en prose poétique à partir de recherches centrées sur la notion de voix, et cela sans limites prédéterminées en matière d’époque, langues ou traditions littéraires. Cette approche, basée sur la voix, prétend donner de l’espace à des études qui requestionneront le lieu commun du choc formel associé au poème en prose à la lumière de nouvelles compréhensions du problème d’expression que ce genre pose. Étant associé autant au narrateur qu’au sujet lyrique, ou dissocié des deux, le poème en prose rend possible des interrogations spécifiques, par le biais de sa structure narrative ou de sa dimension lyrique, sur qui ou quoi y a la parole.

    Voyageurs réels et imaginaires latino-américains en Algérie et le monde arabe (XIXe et XXe siècles)

    Les études sur la culture du monde arabe et ses rapports avec la civilisation, l’histoire, et les arts latino-américains à partir du XIXe siècle, sont très peu nombreuses. La constatation est flagrante si l’on considère les travaux sur l’Algérie des XIXe et XXe siècles. En particulier, il existe peu de publications relatives l’Algérie hormis différentes archives privées et publiques présentes aussi bien en Argentine, au Chili que dans d’autres régions du monde. Ce premier séminaire international devra permettre d’ouvrir un nouveau terrain de recherches et d’offrir une première vision globale sur l’Algérie et les pays arabes au cours des XIXe et XXe siècles, ainsi qu’investiguer les rapports des liens culturels avec l’Amérique latine.

    Hybrid

    InterArtes Review - number 2

    If the first issue of the journal dealt with the permeability of borders - the very sign of topicality - as a condition that supports an aesthetics of the hybrid, the second issue of InterArtes intends to ask how this process of hybridisation of different genres, content, themes, styles and languages changes the nature and structure of the text, what the final product born from this interaction is and whether it can give rise to multiple levels of reading generated by the presence of different expressive means. In this second issue, InterArtes opens up the possibility of taking an ontological viewpoint or a pragmatic or analytical perspective, with the ultimate aim of exploring a field of investigation that continues to offer broadening perspectives.

    Exploring Transnational Dimensions of Activism in Contemporary Book Culture

    Mémoires du livre/Studies in Book Culture, vol. 26-2, Fall 2022

    “A is for Activist” is the title of a best‑selling children’s board book, published in 2013 by Innosanto Nagara. This small book amplifies a large message: books can catalyze change. Publishing has both supported and hampered progressive political and social change, in a variety of international contexts. Activism in publishing is also transnational because national contexts and identities matter, but they exist within a transnational network with unequal power dynamics and “literary capital” (Casanova 2004). Building on ideas of “print activism” in the long twentieth century (Schreiber 2013), this special issue is dedicated to furthering our understanding of activism in the contemporary publishing industry – and in the research thereof.

    The Fear of Shrinking Numbers

    Democracy, Demography and the East-West Divide in Europe

    Electing a government is what people do in a democracy, but governments also tend to choose the people who will elect them. They do it by designing citizenship laws and electoral laws, by crafting immigration regimes and by employing practices like gerrymandering and voters’ suppression. This four lectures series discusses the ways in which the shrinking ethnocultural majorities in the European Union (EU) member states try to preserve their power and identity in the face of population decline and increasing migration.
