    After Nature

    Aesthetics & Critique, V

    For centuries, artists have been keen to paint from nature. What remains of this aesthetic project in a world where nature is revealed as already fully “anthropized”? What is left of nature, when it has lost the status of the Great Outdoors? Faced with climate emergency, other politics – but also: aesthetics – of nature become urgent. How to conceive a nature that is no longer located beyond us, but that permeates us? How to think, in return, a nature already marked by recursive processes, in short: by technique ? Perhaps nature after nature never was but that: a nature that discovers itself as having always been second nature. A nature as art.

    ¿Quién hace tanta bulla? Actualité de Trilce de César Vallejo

    Más que un simple homenaje o una merecida celebración, el coloquio internacional ¿Quién hace tanta bulla? Actualité de Trilce tiene como objetivo pensar dicho poemario, en el centenario de su publicación, como una de las expresiones más extremas de la modernidad poética, en el marco de la revolución verbal y artistica provocada por las primeras vanguardias. El propósito de esta manifestación científica es también y sobre todo explorar las vidas y prolongaciones ulteriores de este libro a través de las diversas obras poéticas, artisticas, críticas, e incluso filosóficas, que desde 1922 hasta hoy dialogan con él.

    Le panhispanisme : tensions, écarts, rencontres

    Société des hispanistes français

    Le mot panhispanisme a toujours fait référence, surtout, à la langue en ce qu’elle constitue le dénominateur commun d’un ensemble de territoires dans lesquels on utilise l’espagnol de façon plus ou moins prépondérante. Le but du prochain colloque international de la Société des hispanistes français (SHF) est de s’interroger, de débattre et d’échanger, depuis des approches et des perspectives variées, sur la notion et la réalité du panhispanisme. L’hispanisme, le lusitanisme, le galéguisme, le catalanisme et l’américanisme sont concernés par cette thématique qui se déclinera en plusieurs disciplines : lexicographie, dialectologie, traductologie, didactique de la langue, analyse du discours, glottopolitique, sociolinguistique, civilisation, études culturelles, études postcoloniales, études cinématographiques et histoire en général.

    Languages in European University Alliances: challenges and issues

    Strategic partnerships across the EU between higher education institutions encouraged the emergence of European Universities, a key driver for improving the quality of Higher Education and strengthening links with the European research and innovation landscape, but also with society and the economy. Which will be the role of languages in University Alliances’ strategies for interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches, maintaining different contextual linguistic, rhetorical, and disciplinary traditions? Will multilingualism be enhanced, and with what perspectives? The CEL/ELC (European Language Council) Forum intends to bring together contributions, experiences, and reflections on the role of languages in HELP (Language Policy in Higher Education), on strategies for their valorisation, on intercomprehension practices, on methodologies and actions to promote plurilingualism.

    A Transatlantic Mediterranean?

    Circulations, influences and civilian and military cooperation between the United States and Southern European and Turkish spaces (1945-1980's)

    The objective of this meeting is to contribute to a transnational and decompartmentalized history of the circulations between Mediterranean Europe and the United States between 1945 and the 1980s, which will make it possible to apprehend these relations from a global point of view and to analyze the way in which these links were able to generate circulations of influence between Mediterranean countries. The aim is to combine diplomatic approaches with the socio-history of these actors and with the analysis of the circulation of knowledge and modes of governmentality, by placing Atlantic military issues and policies in the wider context of intellectual mobility and cross-practices. The European and Turkish Mediterranean is understood here in a broad and political sense, from Portugal to the confines of the Anatolian peninsula. Similarly, the ambition is to see how these relations between Mediterranean Europe and the Atlantic space may have had effects on the Southern and Eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, whether during or after the period of colonial domination.

    Metropolitan and suburban cities: Past, present and future

    مدينة "مقرين" نموذجا

    With the urban development that the world has witnessed since the late nineteenth century in parallel with the industrial development, and the increase in the movement of migration and displacement towards the major industrial cities around the world, the latter became crowded with population and expanded form contemporary metropolises, absorbing most of the jobs and major administrative, social and economic spaces. This caused a serious economic, social and development confusion for the countries experiencing the phenomenon, and a clear regional disparity between its depths and peripheries and between its cities and countryside. Its homogeneous balance was disturbed, and it turned into a sweeping polar cities because of the small cities and villages around it, with its acquired social and economic weight, thus affecting the local, regional and even the international geopolitical and geo-economics balances.

    Photographie, perceptions visuelles et esthétique

    « Sēmēion Med » - Numéro 8 (Février 2023)

    L’image photographique est à la fois une technique et un langage. Ce langage possède sa propre syntaxe, son vocabulaire et ses figures de style. À l’instar du langage parlé, celui de la photographie a bien évolué dans le temps puisque de simple instantané de la réalité (tel l’album familial), il en est devenu le miroir, puis l’expression d’une certaine modernité, volant enfin de ses propres ailes. Loin des influences de la peinture, avec le mouvement pictorialiste, il a développé ses propres codes herméneutiques de saisie et de compréhension du monde. On propose aux contributeurs de réfléchir sur les axes suivants : photographie et réel, photographie et sublimation du réel, spécificité d’une œuvre photographique, photographie et numérique, photographie et l’art contemporain, photographie et modernité.

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity

    FolkFocus

    The conference aims to study the hungarian folk movement called “táncházmozgalom” (“dance house movement”). In 2022, this movement celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the first “táncház” (“dance house”, type of traditional dance ball), held in Budapest on the 6th of May 1972. The process of “learning by doing” is a central dynamic to the personal investment of the youngsters in this movement, during the music and dance lessons as well as during the táncházak (dance houses), koncertek (concerts) and táborok (camps). The dance house movement is also very much marked by hungarian ethnography of the XXth century. The practices of dancing and music are anchored in the consulting of numerous works and archives of ethnographic collections from the last century. As such, the “táncházmozgalom” is often called “revival movement” since it brings melodies and steps of rural folk music back up to date in the modern and urban context of Budapest.

    Thinking Europe Visually

    L'Europe par l'image et en images

    "If I had to do it again, I would start with culture": this statement often erroneously attributed to Jean Monnet suggests that in the absence of a shared culture, Europe as a political and economic construct remains nothing but a hollow shell. This conference aims to question the disillusioned position which holds that there is no meaningful common European culture, and to do so through images. One way to visualize the potential existence and limits of a European cultural base is indeed to trace the circulation of images – be they works of art, press images, posters, photographs, or even motifs and patterns – in the region, from antiquity through to the present day. What are the images that have circulated most widely in Europe? Are they specific to Europe or are they already globalized? What was their visual and symbolic impact? Is there a "visual culture" specific to Europe and, if so, what might be its distinctive "patterns"?
