    Women missionaries in Islamic lands: roots, limits, changes (early 19th century - early 21st century)

    Despite their numerical preponderance among the missionary workforce exercising a Christian apotolate at the end of the Ottoman Empire, women have long attracted less work than men. A rebalancing is in progress, spurred on by the gender studies and extended to the whole Muslim world. We will focus on real encounter and conflict situations, avoiding an essentialist approach to Islam and considering the extreme diversity of the field strategies and practices. This approach will be carried out in equal parts, in a decentering and critical way, far from denominational approaches.

    Apocalypse and dystopia in Italian and French literature, 1945 to the present

    « Cahiers d’études italiennes, Novecento… e dintorni », n° 42, printemps 2026

    Les intrigues dystopiques et apocalyptiques sont fréquentes dans la littérature récente et contemporaine. Pour en saisir toute la portée, il faut néanmoins les replacer dans le contexte historique constitué par la révolution scientifique (théorisée par Francis Bacon), la transformation capitaliste de l’économie, la philosophie de l’histoire (née dans la seconde moitié du XVIIIe siècle) ainsi que par les courants « messianiques » modernes auxquels ces intrigues apocalyptiques s'opposent...

    Land Use and Consumption in a Historical Perspective

    Definitions, Concepts, and Methods

    The relationship between societies and soil is intrinsic to human history. Nowadays, this relationship is strongly defined by land use and consumption practices that, at different scales, increasingly threaten the common good and the biodiversity conservation. Urban planning interventions and intensive forms of production lead to the fragmentation, erosion, and ultimately, transformation of soil into a commodity, a freely usable “raw material,” rather than recognizing it as a non-reproducible good. In such a context, a revision of the evolution of concepts of use, consumption, and artificialization of the soil can contribute to a better understanding of the perspectives and rhetoric developed over time and in relation to contemporary challenges.

    Digital democracy: promises and illusions

    Internet neutrality, access to information, democracy formats

    A stable and peaceful society is based on a solid and strong democracy. The democratic model is the future of any society that respects human rights.New information and communication technologies and the still poorly regulated advances in Artificial Intelligence have impacted not only all human activity, but have also contributed to reshaping the relationship with politics, citizen participation, political communication and politics, national and international. The purpose of this international conference is to question the phenomenon of electronic democracy not only from an instrumental point of view (e-voting tool), but to question the conditions of possibility and possible limits.

    Gaetano Salvemini (1873-1957) and France

    The conference intends to propose an overall re-examination of Salvemini's relations with France, starting with those matured with some historians during the drafting phase of his volume on the French Revolution (1905, subsequently reissued several times with variants), passing through his relations with some important intellectuals and those gravitating around the figure of his second wife Fernande Dauriac, arriving at those with the world of Italian and European antifascist exile. Vast and significant, even if not always marked by sympathy and harmony of ideas, appear, moreover, the relations with exponents of the labor movement and with various personalities of the French socialist world. A separate chapter is, finally, represented by relations with the Giustizia e Libertà movement.

    The Americans in the western Mediterranean (1942-1945)

    Landings, liberation and the "pax americana"

    The objective of this meeting is to refocus the history of landings and subsequent military liberation operations in the Western Mediterranean, between 1942 and 1945, from an American perspective. Indeed, from Operation Torch in North Africa to the landing in Provence in August 1944 and the final battles in Italy in the spring of 1945, the United States asserted their decisions over the British within the coalition. Furthermore, the arrival of thousands of American soldiers, coupled with the installation of dozens of military bases in North Africa, Italy, Southern France, and Corsica, was accompanied by the establishment of various administrative structures by the United States to ensure a return to order and to set up a kind of "Pax Americana" according to their own interests. The interactions of these soldiers with the local populations sometimes lead to tensions. The aim, from a comparative perspective, is to go beyond the simple military dimension and broaden the study of this theater of operations to include political, economic, social, and cultural fields.

    Research libraries in Rome (1860-1930): the origins of an exceptional documentary collection

    Comment se sont constituées les collections documentaires exceptionnelles à l’étranger ? Quelle place cette histoire reflète-t-elle de la recherche en histoire, art et histoire de l’art dans l’histoire intellectuelle et culturelle de chacun des pays représentés, entre 1860 et 1930 ? Cette journée d’étude permet de poser le contexte des bibliothèques de recherche installées sur un territoire étranger et de s’intéresser en particulier aux premières décennies de leur fonctionnement, dans un arc chronologique assez large, des années 1830 aux lendemains de la Première Guerre mondiale.

    Living through the Revolution

    Housing, property and citizenship (18th-21th centuries)

    L’objectif de ces journées est d’étudier la citadinité révolutionnaire, afin de nourrir la réflexion sur une série de notions connexes : habitat / logement / propriété. Chacune de ces notions renvoie à des rapports sociaux structurés par une série d’oppositions (sédentaires et nomades, propriétaires et locataires, résidence recensée et logement clandestin, logés et mal-logés) et à un spectre large de pratiques plus ou moins normées ou alternatives. Intégrer ces différents termes, étudier leurs variations, permettra non seulement de revenir sur les apports de différentes disciplines des sciences sociales, mais aussi d’être attentif aux variations des sources en fonction des contextes révolutionnaires.

    Giacomo Puccini, 1924-2024 : Puccini et la France

    Centenaire de la disparition de Puccini

    One of the greatest masters of musical theatre of all time, Puccini met with immense popular success in France starting from the first performances of his operas, despite the recurring reservations of critics, who severely rejected his music and librettos that were often judged vulgar and irrelevant. The purpose of this conference is to examine the close links between Puccini and France, both through the works themselves and their reception, from his lifetime to the present day. The papers, cultivating an interdisciplinary perspective, will focus on staging, musical dramaturgy, the production systems, as well as on the literary and musical sources and forms of Puccini’s operas, insofar as these are linked to France.

    Mapping the Other

    In Western space, mapping the Other is not a prescriptive notion to assign ossified identities. Rather, it is about questioning the link between these intersectional identities of otherness and the specificities of the various Western spaces. In other words, it invites a reconsideration of how the Others autonomously define themselves in the dominant and marginal spaces of the “normative order” of hegemonic societies, and how they integrate them to make them theirs—therefore challenging the systems of oppression implemented.

    Actors, practices and the circulation of scientific knowledge in Colonial Italy

    Farestoria. Società e storia pubblica. Istituto storico della Resistenza e dell’età contemporanea di Pistoia

    Over the past forty years, the relationship between science and colonial empires has been increasingly debated in the historical field. Following the perspectives opened up by international historiography, this issue of Farestoria aims to reflect on the processes of construction of scientific practices in the context of Italian colonial expansion. It intends to examine the construction of medical and scientific knowledge within a widened landscape, that of the circulation and reformulation of conceptions, practices and scientific objects between colonial and metropolitan spaces and across imperial borders. The issue will also give priority to reflection that considers longer-term perspectives, paying attention to the processes of formation and structuring of knowledge, practices and devices across liberal, fascist and post-war republican Italy.

    AI: ArtIntelligence

    “InterArtes”, 2023 - Number 3

    Today, technological advances seem to point towards the artificial creation of complex singularities. The process of artistic creation is clearly at the heart of this paradigm shift whose implications are as much aesthetic and scientific as they are ethical, political, and then legal, economic, social, environmental... The third issue of InterArtes will be devoted to critically questioning the relationship between “Artistic Creativity and Automation”, both with theoretical contributions and with essays of a historical and empirical nature.

    Au commencement était un récit… dénouements possibles pour une histoire tue

    Francophonies itinérantes – Colloque international 2022

    Maïssa Bey a toujours conçu son activité comme un labeur pour faire sortir du silence les voix des victimes oubliées, tout comme de leurs bourreaux, de l’histoire de l’Algérie. Nous souhaitons organiser un moment de rencontre, de réflexion et d’échange autour de l’œuvre de Maïssa Bey, aussi dans une perspective de comparaison avec d'autres écrivain·e·s, en posant une simple question : comment arrive-t-elle à écrire les blancs de l’histoire de l’Algérie ? Notre but est de faire dialoguer des chercheurs et chercheuses qui s’inscrivent dans une pluralité d’approches en sciences humaines et sociales (historiens, littéraires, sociologues, anthropologues, psychanalystes, etc.).

    Des femmes militantes (Italie, 1820-1922)

    Attivismo femminile (Italia, 1820-1922)

    Ce colloque entend explorer les différentes activités militantes par lesquelles les femmes ont participé à la vie politique du début du XIXe siècle à la « première vague féministe » (1865-1920), dans cette période de transformation de la péninsule italienne et de naissance d’un nouvel État national, qualifiée aujourd’hui de « long Risorgimento ». Il entend réfléchir au thème du militantisme féminin pendant cette période non seulement en termes de genre, mais aussi de choix, c’est-à-dire à la participation au sens large, à la fois aux batailles et sur les barricades, aux luttes armées, mais aussi aux idées et aux débats politiques qui ont accompagné la naissance de l’Italie contemporaine. L’intention est de privilégier l’analyse des réseaux, en suivant non seulement des itinéraires individuels, mais aussi des exemples de militantisme collectif, qui émergent à travers l’analyse des espaces et des formes de relations dans la sphère publique.

    Antimilitarisme et société en Italie (1970-2020)

    Depuis la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale, les USA sont présents militairement en Italie, notamment en Sardaigne et en Sicile qui, en raison de leur position stratégique dans la Méditerranée, sont des lieux centraux de décisions, d’opérations et d’exercices militaires, en lien avec les conflits internationaux (au Moyen-Orient, en Afrique du Nord, ou encore au Yemen pour le conflit russo-ukrainien). Cette journée d’étude et de débats vise à comprendre comment ces mouvements et collectifs travaillent à la transmission de leurs luttes et à leur réactualisation dans le panorama militant du pays.
