    Telling, exhibiting and commemorating minority histories in the United States

    U.S. museums and historic sites, and minority narratives

    Critical perspectives have contributed to the development of research on minority histories, which can be approached in two ways: on the one hand from the point of view of the domination that is exercised, on the other hand from the point of view of the experiences of members of the minority. Minority narratives mobilize collective memories and processes of patrimonialization and different mediations of history, notably in the school and medias. We propose to focus on one of their concrete forms, namely museums and heritage sites. Museums are indeed at the focus of political and historiographic issues in the way they articulate, or not, the narrative of minorities and the national narrative.The question of the mediation of history, here approached through the prism of museum institutions and heritage sites, as well as the articulation between past and present, will be our focus.

    Whither the Spiritual? Rethinking Secularism’s Legacy in post-Ottoman Art

    This dossier examines—and challenges—the implications of art history’s secular tilt—what Shaw has called an over-reliance on “Christian-based ideas of visuality” - on the study of modern and contemporary art from the Middle East. It aims to consider what new explorations in this field can offer for rethinking both art history and spirituality’s relationship to empirical argument and experience as cornerstones of modernity in a western modality.

    Xérographie : artistes femmes (1965-1990)

    Xerography: Women Artists, 1965-1990

    This symposium offers a state of the field reflection on women artists’ use of xerography, a practice that, to date, has not been the subject of any in-depth study. Appearing in the artistic field during the 1960s, xerography (from the Greek xeros, “dry” and graphein “to write”) appears as an in-between practice bordered upstream by photography and downstream by the advent of the digital image. While male artists did explore the new technology in their work, the emergence of this phenomenon and its development, particularly on American soil, were essentially the work of female artists. Xerography was an Intermedial practice par excellence; it challenged the notion of medium specificity by the production of an infinitely reproducible mechanical image and was thus experienced as a threat to the dominant doctrine of medium specificity.

    Climate change and digital sound and audiovisual preservation

    IV International Congress of Digital Archives

    El cambio climático es el proceso que pone en riesgo la vida, la salud y el desarrollo de las naciones. De acuerdo con la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, en muchos países las temperaturas han presentado niveles máximos sin precedentes, los niveles de gases de efecto invernadero están aumentando, el nivel del mar está subiendo y los desastres naturales se agravan. Las soluciones encaminadas a crear economías verdes y sustentables van acompañadas de cambios en diferentes aspectos de la actividad humana. La investigación científica ocupa un espacio relevante y necesario para formular aportaciones que minimicen el impacto del cambio climático en la sociedad. Uno de los ámbitos poco estudiados, con incidencia en el cambio climático, es el relativo a los archivos digitales sonoros y audiovisuales. No obstante que la preservación digital de archivos sonoros y audiovisuales genera de forma constante basura tecnológica y requiere del uso continuo de energía.

    The judicialization of social and environmental issues in Japan

    Continuities, transformations, evolutions

    This special edition aims to gain insight into how the use of the legal system and litigation have evolved. In Japan, recourse to the courts is relatively rare, but litigations have increased since the end of the 1980s in areas such as labour, consumer protection, family law and, more recently, climate change. Is a process of “judicialization” (shihōka) underway in Japan?

    Hierarchies of knowledge production and power relations in academic postcolonial settings

    The controversial concept of decolonization gives rise to various mobilizations in sometimes very different contexts. In the form of militant claims or scientific projects, this concept has both a transformative potential and a political and normative content. In light of the debates in intellectual and activist circles, “decolonizing” is not unanimously accepted. The concept creates polarizing debates, marked by multiple forms of violence, and questioning privilege and discrimination. This special issue intends to explore empirically the expressions, experiences and reshuffling of asymmetrical relations in the production and dissemination of knowledge within academia, in light of post- and decolonial debates.

    Petropolitics in the Countries of the South

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°250 (2022-3)

    For this special issue, we consider a broad approach to the world of hydrocarbons, ranging from economics to cultural issues, and including history, politics, demography, sociology, and anthropology. Our aim is to go beyond a conception that reduces oil-producing countries to black boxes with outgoing flows of oil and gas and incoming financial flows, thus boiling everything down to this single (economic, political, and geopolitical) issue. Before causing global warming, oil had an in situ impact on territories, human communities, and ecosystems. This approach calls for a critical rereading of the abundant literature on the oil-producing countries of the South, in order to tackle oil-related phenomena differently, to identify new connections between them, and to examine those which are only little or not studied.

    Special Issue of Clio@Themis

    This call for article proposals sets the stage for a special section of issue 25 (2023) of the journal Clio@Themis. It is open to all scholars—whatever their relationship to the academy—from all disciplines, who work on questions that bring law and gender into conversation. The coordinators of this special section aim to reinvigorate how these questions are studied, so we are especially eager to read work from junior scholars, who we encourage to submit.

    Aramaic in Greek script: epigraphy and code-switching in the Roman Near East

    Épigraphie et interférences linguistiques au Proche-Orient sous l’Empire romain

    The international round table follows two Lyon symposia on the epigraphy of the Near East (2015) and Jordan (2017). It will bring Hellenists into dialogue with specialists in Semitic languages in order to draw up an assessment of the linguistic interference between Aramaic and Greek in the Near East during the Roman Empire. Together with a workshop devoted to the inscriptions of the Bayt Ras tomb, this scientific event will provide a unique opportunity to put into perspective the ongoing study of this exceptional monument.

    Object memories and restitutions

    Ce dernier Rendez-vous Condorcet de 2021 clôt le cycle « Mémoire, langues, territoires » qui explore la manière dont nous habitons les événements du passé et ceux du présent. Il prend la forme singulière d’une journée internationale pluridisciplinaire, et inaugure une exposition-pilote proposée par l’association Les maisons de la sagesse-traduire et se consacre aux biographies d’objets. Il s’agit de suivre le trajet, non seulement matériel quant aux lieux, mais aussi mental, quant à la perception et à la valeur, de quelques « objets migrateurs » choisis comme des symptômes, depuis le lieu de leur fabrication ou de leur découverte, jusqu’à celui de leur exposition, de leur vente, de leurs nouveaux usages et appropriations.

    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.
