    Ideas of Europe and Images of Russia. From the Eighteenth Century to the Present

    XV Annual Conference of the Research Network on the History of Idea of Europe

    (Western) European perceptions of and discourses about Russia tell us much more about Europe’s self-perceptions (and delusions) than about Russia itself. And the same holds true for Russian views about Europe. Underlying such a complex identity-formation processes is an often troublesome intellectual dialogue between Europe and Russia, between two closely entwined entities. One of the purposes of this international conference, is to shed light on such a dialogue, discern its main elements, and its untold assumptions and underlying prejudices. The overall aim is to examine how images of Europe and discussions about Russian identity have interacted and influenced each other. Embracing a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach, the conference aims to engage intellectual, cultural, social, and art historians as well as literary scholars and political theorists.

    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.

    Mobility & Interactions in the Meuse-Rhine Region (9th–15th Cent.)

    Young researcher’s conference

    Throughout the Middle Ages, from the kingdom of Lothar II to the creation of the first modern state boundaries, the region of the Rhine and Meuse lay at the crossroads between two big linguistic and cultural areas. Political tensions, artistic currents and waves of spiritual renewal continually crossed this vast territory, stretching from Utrecht to Basel and from Cambrai to Cologne and Strasbourg. After a first conference organized in April 2022 at the University of Trier, this second multidisciplinary encounter aims to bring together PhD students and post-doctoral researchers working on mobility and interactions in this region.

    Terrains d’aventure en Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

    Les terrains d’aventure, apparus au Danemark à la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, sont des espaces de jeu à l’usage des enfants dans lesquels ils peuvent jouer, bricoler et construire librement à partir de matériaux simples. Or nous assistons depuis 2018, à un intérêt renouvelé pour ces espaces d’apprentissage et d’expérimentation par le jeu. Le projet Terrains d’aventure en mouvement en Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (TAMARA) vise donc à combler ce manque, en mettant en perspective les traces du passé avec les initiatives actuelles et à venir.

    Le pacifisme au XXIe siècle

    Depuis que la guerre est de retour sur le sol européen en 2022 (puis au Moyen Orient en 2023 et ailleurs en Afrique depuis plus longtemps), et offre sa catastrophique réalité aux yeux du monde, parler de paix semble de plus en plus délicat, sinon inaudible. Or, si le pacifisme part de la conviction que « la guerre n’est pas une fatalité et qu’il semble possible moralement et rationnellement, d’y mettre fin ou à défaut, d’en atténuer la fréquence et les néfastes conséquences » (Questions internationales), ce courant couvre en réalité de nombreuses postures et perspectives. Le colloque entend aborder la question du pacifisme au XXIe siècle à travers plusieurs axes, ce qui n’exclut pas de prendre en considération d’autres époques historiques.

    Dynamics of Belonging: Exploring Home and Homeland in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region

    The 15th Annual International Conference on Baltic and Nordic Studies

    In reflecting on the notion of home, individuals in both the Scandinavia and Baltic Sea Region engage in a multifaceted introspection. Whether one envisions home as a microregion, encapsulating the unique landscapes and cultural tapestries of Scandinavia or the Baltic Sea Region, or defines it on a national scale, the discourse expands to include the intricate layers of personal and collective identity. This contemplative journey involves both longstanding inhabitants and newcomers, prompting a profound meditation on the concepts of home, homeland, homelessness, or a state of being without a defined nation. This conference aims to delve into the nuanced dimensions of cultural identity, sustainability, connectivity, migration, security, education, innovation, and artistic expression within the captivating landscapes of Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region.

    The Role of Women in Decorative Arts and Design in France (1850 to the Present)

    Women played an important role in the history of decorative arts and design. Recent exhibitions (Here We Are! Women in Design 1900 – Today at the Vitra Museum in 2021 and Parall(elles): A History of Women in Design at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2023) displayed an overall approach of the question. But in some countries as France, what is the state of the issues and how is the contribution of women to be placed in this general context? This conference aims to discuss and to provide a state of research on the question but also to shed light on an aspect of artistic creation. It aims also to give an overview of the evolution and role of women in the decorative arts and design in France since the mid-19th century, in order to complete a current knowledge related to an ongoing field of research in the history of art and creative industries.

    Regards satiriques sur les gauches au pouvoir. France-Europe, premier XXe siècle

    De la presse à l’estampe, de la littérature au spectacle vivant, la satire est indissociable de l’activité politique dans les régimes démocratiques. Le centenaire de la victoire du Cartel des gauches, moment d’intense activité caricaturale qui annonce le foisonnement de la satire autour du Front populaire, est l’occasion de revenir sur la production satirique et caricaturale mettant en scène les gauches françaises et européennes au pouvoir au premier XXe siècle, lors d’une journée d’études coorganisée par le Larhra (UMR 5190), Sciences Po Lyon et la Société française d’histoire politique (SFHPo).

    This international conference will explore the cultural differences, similarities and potential bridges between the eastern and western worlds as envisaged during the medieval and early modern periods, including their represention in art, texts and legends, poetry, and pictorial and cinematographic productions. Since the areas of investigation are expansive, Japan is granted a primary place as the pivotal axis for the eastern world. This does exclude Persia, India or China. The northern, English and Mediterranean European areas will primarily represent the occidental world.

    Entre France et Allemagne, théorie et pratique cryptographiques (1300-1800)

    L’histoire de la cryptographie constitue un champ émergent de l’histoire des sciences mais aussi de l’histoire institutionnelle, politique, sociale et culturelle de l’Europe. Souvent mobilisée en annexe de travaux sur l’histoire diplomatique, elle s’est développée grâce à l’initiative du réseau européen HistoCrypt (auquel appartiennent certains membres du comité scientifique) et à l’émergence des intelligence studies. Ce colloque se propose donc de contribuer à la structuration de ce nouveau champ d’étude, pour la période moderne (1300-1800) en interrogeant le rapport entre théorie et pratique cryptographiques.

    Faire le fou. L’art des bouffons dans l’Europe moderne

    Playing Fools? The Art of the Jester in Modern Europe

    The jester is a paradoxical figure: a subordinate included in elite social circles. Thus, he is an outsider, albeit a remarkably proficient one. Jesters, comprising fools, dwarfs, and other “monsters” – both men and women, often with disabilities – are itinerant, travelling from one court to another or from the precursors of psychiatric hospitals to the realms of royalty. The conference aims to scrutinise the competition between artists and jesters, with the latter frequently obtaining more stable patronage than poets and painters. Our goal is to establish the status of jesters between subalternity and disability, applying the methodologies of historical anthropology, social history, and art history.

    Conceptualizing Corruption: The “Old Regime” and the New Order in East-Central-South Europe (1750s-1850s)

    During the age of revolutions, West European politicians, scholars, and popular writers often characterized South-East-Central Europe as a corrupt political space. Notables from the region routinely echoed these claims. Those in and outside of South-East-Central Europe mobilized commentaries on “corruption” for their own political, professional, and personal gains. They used the idea of corruption to assert, for instance, that they knew to run more honest and efficient administrations, military regimes, and commercial operations. The conference organizers welcome paper proposals that employ a (de)constructivist and/or sematic approach to study the concept corruption and its relationship to the rise of (West European) modernity. Submissions should focus on Central-South-East Europe from the 1750s to the 1850s. Applicants working on regional micro-histories that situate changing notions of “corruption” in a transnational context are especially encouraged to apply.
