    A Different Perspective for the Atlantic Routes

    Impressions and Exchanges in Transoceanic Journeys from the 16th to the 19th Century

    After more than two years of a preparation that have been careful and laborious, but slowed down and hindered several times by the difficulties that have arisen due to the global pandemic, this project finally gets underway. It intends to go back once more to questioning issues that already count important in-depth studies, like the transoceanic relations between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, but also has the ambition of wanting to integrate the results already obtained with new reflections and achievements, and above all with a different point of view.

    New Monuments

    Iconoclasm, Reenactments, and Alternative Commemorations in the United States since 2000

    As demonstrated by Wendy Bellion’s scholarship, iconoclasm lies at the foundation of the United States. Yet Bellion also shows us that, rather than being sealed in the past, iconoclastic projects continue into the present. Iconoclastic destruction invariably entails creation—whether it is the construction of new monuments to replace the toppled ones, or the coalescence of a new community, movement, or nation. This conference seeks to bring together scholars interested in monuments and their destruction, public history and public art, historical reenactments, memory studies, and artistic practices across diverse media. We invite papers that evaluate recent commemorative projects, examine acts of iconoclasm and their aftermath, and study or propose novel approaches to representing historic events.

    Natural Rights and Politics in the Early Modern Period

    Despite the ubiquity of the idea of human rights in our political culture, and its strong presence in the work of political scientists, jurists and contemporary historians, scholarly interest in natural rights — the tradition from which human rights are drawn — remains sporadic and fragmentary. This interdisciplinary workshop aims to deepen and broaden our understanding of the political uses and development of natural rights in the Early Modern Period, in Europe, the Atlantic world and beyond. By interrogating the relationship between natural rights and politics, this will be an occasion not only to analyze natural rights as a theoretical concept, but also and above all to study the different uses of concepts drawn from natural rights in precise political contexts, the political projects they served, their relationship with republicanism, and the emergence and evolution of particular rights.

    Narrating the Body

    New Perspectives on the Connection of Corporeality and Narrativity (c. 1500–1800)

    Multiple disciplines such as gender, historical, or literary studies have been using different approaches to the body as a heuristic instrument. This interdisciplinary symposium invites scholars to reflect upon the intersections of corporeality and narrativity. Which role did the body play when writing? How did the body influence the narrative about the body and the author?

    Mining Mobilities across the globe

    Labour, Science, and Knowledge circulation in Mining (15th-21st century)

    The fifth conference of the European Labour History Network (ELHN) will explore how mining mobility and knowledge circulation have played a pivotal role in extractive industries worldwide. The movement of workers, technologies, and knowledge has been mediated by state authorities, corporations, and subcontractors through alluring and forced forms of recruitment. Alongside these trajectories, men and women from neighbouring and distant territories moved to newly reopened mines to search for new deposits and improve their social and economic conditions.

    Coloniality and the Left-Wing Sexism

    In this book-project we propose an exploratory/reflective decolonial investigation to locate the intersubjective structural/hegemonic, capitalist-historical, socio-economic, cultural and political relational process that caracterises a Patriarcal-Pact solidly operational throughout women and men’s lived experiences. That is, we propose to scrutinise the enduring and reiterative operational “colonialities of power/political; of knowledge/epistemic; of being/ontological; together with coloniality of gender, of doing, of nature, of sensibility/aesthetic.” (Perrier et al., 2022, 3). Through this we intend to deploy a new-decolonial-ethic-programme to tackle the way these colonialities continue to oppress and annihilate the cultural, intellectual/academic, artistic, social and political production of the subalternised and oppressed subjects here positionned as the racialised and gendered Black, white, “mixed-race” women, trans-women/men and TBN-transgender/non-binary from the Global South/Global North.

    Developing Societies and the Sustainable Development Goals

    Challenges and Opportunities

    In 2015, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030 were defined. The goals include the eradication of poverty, access to quality and equitable education for all, environmental protection, and health for all. While the SDGs target the world in general, as each country faces at least one of the obstacles to development, it appears that developing countries, particularly those in Africa and South America, are the most concerned. This panorama raises questions to which researchers could provide an answer: how to make the SDGs intelligible to Africans and other Third World countries so that they can easily appropriate them? How much consideration is given to the multiple and diverse contexts among developing countries in the conceptualisation of the SDGs?
