    New approaches to the history of soft power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries

    The study of soft power in the modern period is unequal, with much attention understandably paid to the Cold War when culture offered a surrogate for damaged and blocked political dialogues. But practices that aimed at promoting a nation abroad were not invented after the Second World War, nor were they inexistent before then. Some historians have traced their origins back to the nineteenth century with the formation of nation states (in Europe) and the growth of ministries of foreign affairs.  In addition, the historiography has largely omitted soft power policies produced by and targeting so called “periphery countries”. Therefore, much remains to be written if we are to fully appreciate the history of soft power and its associated key concepts (public and cultural diplomacy, propaganda, publicity, promotion, oeuvres -in the French context, public relations) and the multiplicity of meanings with which these ideas and practices were endowed globally throughout the modern period.

    Afro-decolonial perspectives - practical and theoretical issues

    Representations of Africans and Afro-descendants in school manuals

    Ce colloque-atelier est le fruit des résultats d'un précédent colloque qui a eu lieu à Saint-Louis à l'université Gaston Berger au Sénégal. Son objectif ne sera pas la création de manuels scolaires au format papier mais la création d’une plateforme digitale où les membres du réseau pourront mettre en ligne des supports de tous types (textes, photos, vidéos, audio, peintures, etc.) en rapport avec les cultures africaines et afro-diasporiques. Ainsi, chaque enseignant, animateur culturel, artiste, éducateur aura accès aux sources primaires partout dans le monde. Cependant, cette initiative n’empêche pas à postériori la création de livres au format papier. C’est pourquoi l’optique de cette rencontre sera beaucoup plus ciblée sur les pratiques pédagogiques et didactiques.

    Confused interfaces: norms, classifications and the primacy of language in questions

    TansOceanik international seminar

    La proposition de cette rencontre et d’essayer de questionner les normes essentialisantes – telle qu’exprimées dans les discriminations raciales -, les classifications – qui excluent certaines couches de la population – et le primat du langage – qui évacue la cognition des expériences sensibles, telle la culture des signes des sourds. Nous proposons de croiser des expériences existentielles à la frontière de trois oppositions classiques : masculin/féminin, humain/non humain, vivant/mort en invitant des spécialistes travaillant sur des terrainsde contextes culturels différents à discuter entre eux et avec des philosophes et des psychanalystes.
