    From Athens to Samarqand

    Spatial Perception in Antiquity from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Taklamakan Desert

    Spatial perception in antiquity is a fruitful and intriguing research area that has already received attention since the late 18th century. The development of separate disciplines dealing with different cultures and sources has, however, led to an often-isolated treatment of such topics in the specific fields of history, philology and (historical) linguistics. This conference intends to provide the opportunity to overcome such isolated treatment and to strengthen the cooperation between the fields by establishing interdisciplinary discussions.

    Between Conflict and Accommodation? Christian-Democracy and the Rise of “new social movements”, 1960s-1990s

    The aim of this conference is to analyze the relation, conflicts and exchanges, between Christian-democracy and the so-called “new social movements” fromthe 1960s until the early 1990s. It wantsto adopt a reciprocal perspective, looking at the ways in which Christian-Democratic parties and related movements reacted in response to the emergence and development of these movements from the 1960s onwards, and, inversely, at the ways in which these “new social movements” were interconnected, in real and imagined terms, to Christian-Democracy. The geographical scope is not limited to Western Europe, but also includes other regions, most notably Latin America.

    Research in Language and Religion: Approaches, Descriptions and the Advent of New Identities in Post-colonies

    Research in language and religion has addressed various issues in the humanities and particularly in linguistics. However, the realities of the post-colonial terrain give rise to more complex forms of identity construction, the expression of diversity, and the dynamic tensions between languages and groups. The aim of this call is to study the relationship between language and religious belief in linguistics as well as in other fields of the humanities. It is also a question of questioning the theoretical and methodological aspects mobilized so far by the authors and to see how they allow us to account for the language phenomena that occur in religious situations, especially when they concern multicultural communities.

    Limits of Europeanness? Contested Notions of Difference and Belonging (16th-21st Centuries)

    Fourteenth Annual Conference of the Research Network on the History of the Idea of Europe

    A basic tension inherent in any idea of Europe is that it links some set of “cultural values” to a geographical space on the western fringe of the Asian landmass, but at the same time allows for a significant degree of internal diversity, the boundaries of which are constantly shifting and disputed. There is ample evidence for the continuing force of visions of centre and periphery in this context, both on the territorial and metaphorical level. The variety of ways in which such topographies of cultural values have served to underpin notions of difference and belonging in the light of Europeanness are at the core of this conference. In exploring this multi-faceted field of research, we aim to bring together several disciplines ranging from history, intellectual history and art history over cultural and literary studies to musicology and anthropology.

    A networked urban world: small, medium, and large cities (from the Middle Ages to Contemporary Times)

    The interest of urban historiography on small towns has manifested itself, continuously, but not very intensely, since the 1980s, namely through the study of urban hierarchies, the spatial distribution of towns in a region, or city/city relations. Until now, however, the topic of the relationships established between small, medium and large cities, although not omitted, is far from being able to be considered consolidated as a research topic. Mainly, the place that small towns occupy/occupied in large-scale interconnection phenomena and what are the components, modalities, intensity, and relevance of their (eventual) involvement was little questioned.

    Violence and Conflict in Alexandre Kojève’s works

    “Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence” - Special Issue

    Alexandre Kojève is well known for having initiated a whole generation of intellectuals into a certain reading of Hegel. From the claim that the struggle for recognition must be necessarily a “bloody” one to the assessment that the replacement of those elites whose authority has expired may call for their annihilation, not to mention his equation of biological “death” with human freedom or his interpretation of revolutionary terror as a pedagogical tool to bring forth the perfect citizen of the post-historical age, Kojève´s corpus offers not few topics in which to ground such a reexamination. The special issue of Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence (PJCV) seeks cutting-age articles from contributors which openly explore the aforementioned topics as well as others along the same lines.

    Serving the Sultan: Religious Diversity in Gujarat Under Islamic Rule

    The Serving the Sultan conference will re-visit and cross-examine the processes that forged and shaped this religiously multi-layered, and ethnically plural society during the Islamic period in Gujarat (1298 - 1756 AD). This will be achieved by focusing on religious minorities, either in the numerical sense (Jains/Parsis), or minorities in the sense of not sharing the religion of power (various Hindu traditions). These communities’ intellectual, artistic, and literary contributions at the Islamic courts, their relation with the Islamic rulers, their everyday lives, and their mutual interactions will emerge as the common thread throughout this conference. Moreover, this colloquium seeks to explore how these local actors are embedded in trans-regional socio-political and cultural processes, thus connecting the developments in Gujarat with the broader South-Asian context.
