    The utopia of globalised culture and the reality of local communication practices

    Communication and digital technology in Francophone sub-Saharan Africa

    The imaginary world surrounding digital communication seems to impose a vision that crushes cultural diversity. The Symposium aims to jointly explore the heterogeneity of uses, productions and issues raised by the meeting of globalised technology that is often Western-centred, with various cultures. The first edition will focus on Francophone sub-Saharan Africa, a multicultural territory where contemporary geopolitical contexts pose particularly vital issues for communications research. These issues are of interest mainly to the information and communication sciences community, but the contributions of researchers from various cultural and disciplinary horizons will make it possible to tackle this very broad problem of communication, especially digital, in sensitive areas, according to different complementary approaches.

    Engendering Scandal: Children and Childhood in the Early Modern Period

    History, Literature, Memory

    This international two-day colloquium aims to analyse how and why the child, as an individual or in a group, could take part in the engendering process of scandal, and could even influence its meanings when more directly involved. It also aims to explore how narratives, even when confined to the judicial sphere (such as factums), could make sense of childhood, map its emotional realms, thus contributing to a better understanding of changing social and cultural norms and emotions relating to children.

    American cities facing global changes

    Interdisciplinary Journal of Papers on the Americas (RITA) nr. 13

    Nowadays, the assessment of environmental changes worldwide is indisputable. Interdependent processes – such as global warming, the extinction of species, soil depletion and scarce energy resources – deeply alter the living conditions in our societies, from a material and symbolic point of view. These systemic transformations go well beyond the physical environment or climate change; they can be understood thanks to the concept of “global changes” that has become a main research topic in the fields of social and environmental sciences over the past thirty years (Buttel et al., 1990; Freedman, 2014).

    The sea: paradoxes, challenges and challenges for the Gulf of Guinea states in the 21st century

    The Gulf of Guinea is a region where in its evolution, the sea has become increasingly important and the maritime issues find all their illustrations. The legal aspect finds the economic one, and meets geopolitics. The issue of safety at sea is visible. The sea is, in this region of the world, a place of cooperation and belligerence, of encounter but also of greed and separation. It is a very rich maritime area, but one that fails to generate prosperous states. The book project aims to elicit a plural reading on a transdisciplinary construction of the Gulf of Guinea sea. Through an opening, it challenges many fields for national, sub-regional or even international issues. He therefore encourages social scientists, lawyers, economists, political scientists, environmentalists, etc. to submit original contributions.

    Margins (XIth-XVIIth Century)

    5th International Postgraduate Symposium of Transitions

    From History to Philology, to Art History, to Codicology, and Linguistics, the notion of margin is omnipresent. This meaningful concept, both in its literal and figurative acceptions, has remained at the heart of critical thought for a long time, as scholars have sought to reflect on its particular potentialities whilst attempting to renew approaches to their own subjects of study. Participants, starting from their specific subjects and disciplines, are invited to reflect on the notion of margin, on the similar notions of limit and border, and on the place they hold in their own research.

    anthropology of extractive territories

    L’objet de ce colloque est d’étudier différents territoires extractifs du point de vue des dynamiques anthropologiques qui les structurent, en faisant l’hypothèse qu’ils posent des problématiques communes au-delà des différentes géographies et populations concernées. Il propose de discuter cette hypothèse en mettant à jour les liens entre mécanisation, rapports de genre et rapports à la nature dans divers contextes d’extraction de ressources naturelles.

    Infanticide from Antiquity to the mid-19th century (Europe, colonial and postcolonial Americas)

    L’infanticide est le meurtre du nouveau-né ou du nourrisson perpétré dans la plupart des cas, mais pas seulement, par la mère. Il s’agira de faire le point sur un sujet peu étudié, dans une perspective historique (et non pas clinique ou pathologique) de l'Antiquité au milieu du XIXe siècle. Sans prétendre à une quelconque exhaustivité, les axes à envisager sont nombreux : de la question des sources et des archives en passant par les différents champs d'investigation, de la notion même d'infanticide à toute époque avec les différences de vocabulaire que cela implique, des acteurs qui verbalisent aux législations et leurs applications...

    Circulations and Power Reconfiguration in the Balkans

    « Balkanologie » Revue d'études interdisciplinaires

    After a break of several years, BalkanologieRevue d’études interdisciplinaires is being restarted and is preparing a thematic issue. Focusing on circulations, it investigates how movements of persons, ideas, and goods that take place in South-East European societies are strongly intertwined with both local and global social processes – in terms of migrations, mobilities, tourism, networks, and diasporas. With the notion of circulation, we seek to go beyond “methodological nationalism (or regionalism)” (Dumitru 2014) in order to better grasp the globalized issues at stake in the area, which are often analyzed through the lens of exceptionalism and Balkanism (Todorova 2011).

    Investigating parental motivation for alternative education

    What are parents’ motives to educate without school ? Among the most spontaneously questions addressed to homeschooling, this question has been one of the most researched by scholars, particularly in the United States. Thinking in terms of parental “choice”, “reasons”, “motivations” or “decisions” electing alternative education leads however to conceptual and empirical challenges. To discuss these theoretical and methodological issues of the scientific study of “parental alternative choices”, the workshop gathers researchers whose investigations, about parents who home educate and/or parents who school their children in alternative schools, use diverse concepts or techniques.

    Rétrospective Jan Valtin (1941-1951)

    Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’écrivains dont l’œuvre fut aussi fulgurante et la vie aussi pleine de rebondissements que celle de Jan Valtin. Son premier livre, Out of the Night, s’imposa dès sa sortie comme le plus grand succès de l'édition américaine depuis Gone with the wind (Autant en emporte le vent) ; il fut vendu à plus d’un million d’exemplaires aux États-Unis, en moins d’un an, et fut plus tard traduit dans de nombreuses langues. Ce récit à couper le souffle de la vie d’un révolutionnaire allemand sous la République de Weimar et la première période du nazisme avait pour mérite d’éclairer la façon dont l’action des communistes contre la social-démocratie en tant qu’ennemi principal avait conduit à l’alliance objective des totalitarismes pour détruire la démocratie bourgeoise.

    The Construction of the European Area of Higher Education, 20 years after the Launch of the Bologna Process

    20 years after the signing of the Bologna Process, the time seems right to take stock of its implementation. The aim is to focus on its procedural dimension and on the organisational and/or strategic developments and responses to its implementation by the higher education institutions concerned. The focus on the Bologna Process cannot be exclusively managerial. The implementation of the Bologna Process, which is non-prescriptive, with national variations often induced by specific policies, has often encountered difficulties in terms of ownership and legitimization by actors in higher education systems, which ultimately raises the issue of the effectiveness of the Process. It is also interesting to study universities as actors and producers of discourse in relation to European integration.

    Réseaux et pratiques de la clandestinité au temps des guerres de religion

    The French religious wars of the late sixteenth century provided a ready platform for the use of secretive means by which all parties (Protestant, Catholic, Royalist, Leaguer) protected and perpetuated their cause, as well as transmitted messages and news across France and to their allies abroad, generating a culture of clandestine networks. The French crown, other foreign powers and their ambassadors also made use of such practices. In practical terms, the use of ciphers and pseudonyms allowed for the safe passage of messages and messengers. For individuals, finding means of concealment for their clandestine activities was vital, especially in the towns. Intelligence-gathering and espionage sought to counter as well as to support such practices. This workshop seeks to uncover the clandestinity of the sixteenth century in order to enhance and deepen our understanding of this contested period in French history.
