    The global musical instrument market: making, trading and collecting in the 19th century and the early 20th century

    This symposium will explore the global musical instrument market’s various facets from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. The joint study of markets and collections, which grew in parallel and fed off each other during the period, aims to map the flows of instruments, the places and the players who put them into circulation from the perspective of a global history of music and material cultures. Upstream, the goal is to explore the provenance of the materials used in making instruments. Downstream, the reflection will focus on acquisition methods in the colonial context, instrument-makers’ sales strategies, the role of world’s fairs and colonial exhibitions, the social uses of instruments and the representations associated with them.

    Risks, protections, and climate change

    “Revue internationale des études du développement” no. 257 (2025-1)

    This special issue of the Revue internationale des études du développement aims to bring together articles examining the way in which individuals and organizations have been rethinking (or not) their risk management methods to better face the challenges brought about by climate change. To combine perspectives and methods, this call for papers invites the submission of work falling within the scope of the four lines of inquir: 1/ Climate challenges and informal risk management strategies: what is the nature of the reconfigurations taking place? 2/ Climate challenges and formal protection tools: what responses do formal organizations and markets provide? 3/ Informal strategies and formal tools: how do they interact? What benefits do they provide? 4/ Measures, perceptions, and representations.

    Séries états-uniennes de Network des années 2000

    Following the conferences devoted to US network series produced from the 1950s to the 1970s (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier, May 2018), during the 1980s (UPVM, February 2019) or the 1990s (UPVM, February 2020), this conference will focus on network series of the following decade: 2000-2010. Our aim is to give center stage to series that have often been either neglected or analyzed through restricted methodological approaches, and to contribute to re-historicizing the study of television series by refusing to focus solely on the hyper-contemporary series currently being aired.

    Journal “InterArtes”

    Depuis le développement des études sur la bande dessinée dans le monde occidental, à savoir dès les années soixante, on a observé une croissance imposante, dans différents domaines disciplinaires, de contributions scientifiques portant sur son langage et ses auteurs. Des reconstructions historiques, des études sociologiques, des interprétations culturelles, des analyses sémiotiques et linguistiques, des comparaisons intermédiales ont offert au cours de ces décennies un cadre historique, théorique et méthodologique permettant de définir le langage de la bande dessinée, ses formes, ses genres et ses évolutions, son dialogue avec les autres arts, sa valeur esthétique ainsi que son impact idéologique et culturel. Cependant, nous estimons qu'il reste encore beaucoup à explorer et à définir, notamment dans la relation – objet de nombreux débats récemment – entre la bande dessinée et la littérature.

    Power and Empowerment in Ecological Perspective

    Annual conference of the Association française d’études américaines (AFEA)

    Our workshop will explore how the tension between power and empowerment can be applied to the field of environmental studies, conceived here in the broadest sense, from environmental history to anthropology, political science and sociology. For instance, how do questions of emancipation and social or political transformation apply to ecological activism, the energy transition and the various struggles for environmental justice?

    Transmodernity in Caribbean Literature and Arts

    “Archipélies” n° 18

    This issue of Archipélies takes a cross-disciplinary look at Caribbean identity and its new forms of expression. The impact of philosopher Edouard Glissant's theories has given unprecedented visibility to the Caribbean as a “New World Region” whose mixed-race and digenetic populations are constructing an unprecedented phenomenology of Relation. According to Fernando Ortiz, the various manifestations of the process of cultural interweaving that is taking place within the territories of the Caribbean presuppose a “transculturation”, that is to say, a “trans-” formation of the subject as part of the transcultural dialogue between the Same and the Other. This phenomenon, inherent in the Pan-American space, had already been highlighted by the Brazilian anthropophagic modernist movement led by Oswald de Andrade.

    From limits to margins. Periphery(s) in stories and imaginarie Latin American contemporaries

    « Amerika », numéro 28

    This number attempts to define what the margins and peripheries are today in the imaginaries, stories, human sciences and cultural fields of the Americas. If the twentieth century saw, in most countries of Latin America, as it was about defining a cultural norm (which or not took over from the colonial period, whether or not integrating elements of pre-Hispanic history), also appeared increasingly affirmed countercultures and peripheral cultures. With digitalization, which occurred at the beginning of our century, a strong acceleration of the movement was noted. It is then worth asking what a peripheral/marginal culture may be, as well as looking for a way to define it. Another primary issue is knowing how (and by whom) these currents can be represented. In a somewhat binary conception of social, geographic and creative space, one would obviously have to oppose the notions of normativity and centrality to the margins.

    International Conference on Sexual Diversity Studies in Ibero-America: Desires, Spaces and Identities

    Artistic-cultural practices, productions and epistemologies from the edges: voices and decolonial stakes of feminisms and sexual dissidences

    This symposium aims to make visible, analyze and reflect on border cultural practices and productions. In the geographic and symbolic borders stand identities and resistances of those “othernesses” built by colonialism and by that “western conscience”. In a decolonizing effort on the object-subject in artistic-cultural production, feminisms and sexual dissidences in the Ibero-American and diasporic space transform “the personal into the political” through artivist practices and the appropriation of public and virtual space, proposals from performance, manifesto, street art, literature, weaving, scenic arts and music, among other forms of expression that deconstruct the hegemonic vision.

    For a History of University Settings in Quebec (19th-20th centuries)

    This call for papers is a continuation of the panel “Un renouveau de l’histoire des milieux universitaires au Québec ? Trajectoires inédites et mobilisations des savoirs”, which was organised as part of the annual conference of the Institut d’histoire de l’Amérique française. The call is for a thematic issue to be published in Revue d’histoire de l’éducation / Historical Studies in Education in spring 2025. It aims at bringing together current research on the history of universities (French- and English-speaking) in Quebec in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in order to connect different approaches and objects, while also demonstrating the relevance of considering universities as orbital centres, both practically and heuristically, for future research.

    Communicating in wartime

    Transatlantic letters in the 18th century

    Letters has been the subject of numerous studies, but until now the influence of conflict on it has been little explored. The aim of this study day is to compare approaches to this theme, looking at both the material aspects and the specific communication strategies and changes in content in the face of this exceptional situation.Today we are fortunate enough to be able to access these intimate sources through various archives such as the Admiralty Archives at the National Archives in London. They shed new light, through intimate and personal accounts, on the adaptation of information exchanges between families and those involved in the colonial trade. The different facets of this adaptation will be explored over the course of the conference.

    Les défis de la formation des enseignants et de leur insertion professionnelle : approches comparatives

    International Citizen Forum for Education

    La quatrième édition du Forum citoyen international de l’éducation s’intéresse particulièrement à l’un des acteurs clés des systèmes éducatifs, l’enseignant. Étant donné le rôle complexe des enseignants et les répercussions majeures de leur travail sur l’avenir de la société, une formation adéquate est indispensable. Il paraît judicieux et nécessaire de réfléchir aux défis de la formation initiale et continue dans le but d’assurer aux apprenants une éducation qui tient compte de la diversité et des inégalités ainsi que des avancées numériques. Le forum s’attarde aussi sur les pratiques enseignantes, l’insertion professionnelle et les conditions d’exercice du travail enseignant, de même que sur les enjeux de gouvernance et leurs impacts sur la réussite éducative.

    Development archives: production, use and politicization

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°256 (2024-3)

    The first aim of this Special Issue is methodological: the renewed interest in development archives raises questions, particularly among young researchers, about how to identify, collect, and use them, and about their limits. The special issue will thus offer a set of methodological reference points to anyone wishing to use such archives. The second aim will be to lay the foundations for a more ambitious project to study development archives from a perspective at the crossroads of “connected history” and “global historical sociology”.

    Sport in the Americas

    “The body of an athlete and the soul of a sage - these are what we require to be happy”, wrote Voltaire to Helvetius. At RITA, although we don’t claim to have athletic bodies, we humbly hope that our journal does lead to the path of wisdom. As Paris will host the Olympic Games in 2024, we thought it relevant to invite researchers to show wisdom and gain some critical distance to question the role and function of sports in the Americas, from North to South.

    Interdisciplinary Franco-Latin-American perspectives on challenges related to the environment

    Since the 1970s, environmental issues have continued to grow. Indeed, we have moved from a localized perception of environmental damage to a global understanding of the risks associated with climate change and their impacts on socio-ecosystems. In order to better respond to the challenges and stakes of the environmental crisis that is impacting us, it seems appropriate to share and make known the experiences and theories developed from different continents, cultures and geographies in order to enrich our object of study. In this regard, this Congress, which will be held from October 23 to 27, 2023 in Costa Rica, proposes to offer perspectives on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies on environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity, resilience, global health, payments for environmental services, etc.

    Material Life of The Displaced

    Categories, belongings, solidarities (19th-20th centuries)

    Les migrations de l’époque contemporaine ont d’abord été étudiées sous le prisme politique de la construction des États, de la sortie d’empire et de l’accueil des réfugiés. Porté par les renouvellements de l’histoire économique et de l’histoire des mobilités, notre colloque (5-6 décembre 2023) propose quant à lui de réfléchir à la vie matérielle des déplacés au XIXe et au XXe siècles. Comment le déplacement des populations modifie les conditions matérielles d’existence des déplacés eux-mêmes comme celles de la société d’accueil ? Dans les sources, trois grands axes se dégagent pour souligner l’importance de la vie matérielle dans l’histoire du déplacement des populations : l’appartenance, les catégories administratives et les solidarités. Il conviendra donc d’étudier pourquoi et comment l’entraide, l’appartenance et la catégorisation des déplacés s’articulent avec leur vie matérielle.
