    Muslims, Sports and Physical Activity

    This workshop attempts to provide more insight on the relationship between Muslims who live in Europe and sports-physical activity. We would like to examine how Muslims make sense of religion and their religious identity in sportive activities and how public policies are organized vis-a-vis the needs of the Muslim populations in Europe. During this workshop we want to adress a range of issues such as space, gender, social inclusion, multiculturalism, citizenship, politics of identity and secularism.

    Social approaches to eighteenth-century international history

    Diplomacy, trade and knowledge as regional phenomena

    This call for papers invites scholars with fresh research projects to submit proposals for a workshop on Social approaches to eighteenth-century international history that is to take place at Sciences Po, on April 8, 2016. The workshop aims to confront, share and discuss the fresh claims on eighteenth century international history and its social approaches. We particularly encourage proposals that are able to link different sectors (such as diplomacy, trade and knowledge) and those that deal with the opportunities and limits of such trans-sectorial history. Contributions that handle different academic historiographies and traditions will be strongly privileged as well.

    Fabrications: Designing for Silk in the Eighteenth Century

    Joubert de la Hiberderie’s Le Dessinateur d’étoffes d’or, d’argent, et de soie (1765) was the first book to be published on textile design in Europe.  In preparation for the publication of an English translation and critical edition of the text this one day conference calls for papers that will analyse, critique, contextualise, review or otherwise engage with the Le dessinateur in the light of its themes: production, design, technology, education, botany and art.  Joubert’s manual argues for both a liberal and a technological education for the ideal designer. Such a person must, he argues, have detailed knowledge of the materials, technologies and traditions of patterned silk in order successfully to propose new designs; he or she must also have taste and an eye for beauty, which call, he says, for travel in order to see both the beauties of nature and those of art gathered in the gardens and galleries of Paris and the île de France.

    Rethinking Right-Wing Women

    Gender, Women and the Conservative Party, 1880s to the Present

    This two-day international conference explores the relationship between women and conservatism since the late 19th century. In the media frenzy and the re-enactment of the visceral political divisions of the 1980s that greeted the death of Margaret Thatcher in April, 2013, it soon became clear that Britain’s first woman Prime Minister was being portrayed as an aberrant figure who had emerged from a party of men.  It appeared that the media and the public had not been well enough served by academics in making sense of and contextualizing the Thatcher phenomenon and, more broadly, the paradoxical sexual politics of the Right.

    Geoarchaeological research in the Black Sea and the Azov Sea

    Since the first studies undertaken in 1783 by Gablitz on the chora of Chersonesos, the Black Sea comprises an important area to look at the rural and coastal development of the Greek colonial world. Systematic surveying of ditches and walls that line the western coast of Crimea, initiated within the framework of Catherine II’s Greek project, began several decades before the earliest excavations of the urban spaces in 1832. A decisive new step was made during the 1960s, when archaeological surveys provided fresh insights into the internal organization of several kleroi close to Chersonesos, Kerkinitis and Kalos Limen. Around the same time, in the western Black Sea, the first research on the territory of Istros began, complemented by numerous geomorphological studies of the neighbouring Danube Delta. The foundations of geoarchaeological inquiry had been laid, and these have since been added to thanks to recent research undertaken throughout the Pontic area.

    Fortress Europe, Border Lampedusa

    Migrations across the Mediterranean Sea in cultural perspective

Migration is the core topic, but it could be approached with different materials.

    Ph.D. Scholarships on "Trajectories of Change. The State of the State: Organizing Power, Authority and Legitimacy"

    Both the on-going fragmentation in Syria and the progressing territorial disintegration of Ukraine demonstrate currently the radical character of changes in the European neighbourhood. Numerous states are dramatically challenged in their function as administrative, political and territorial entities. They are subject to violent transformations and their viability is being increasingly questioned. Which role do states play in transformation periods and in revolutionary situations? Are they still the key analytical category for analyzing the political change?

    Building techniques in writings on architecture between Italy, France and the Low Countries

    Les techniques constructives dans les écrits d’architecture entre Italie, France et anciens Pays-Bas

    This conference focuses on the connection between architectural theory and construction techniques. The first part deals with the analysis of technical descriptions, their relationship with building practice, their rhetorical value, and their international circulation and adaptation. It comprises case studies from Italy, France, and the Low Countries. The second part approaches the same problem in a comparative perspective and takes the form of round-table discussions structured around three themes: the relationship between technical writings and construction practices, the literary aspects of technical digressions, and the translation and adaptation of Italian treatises.

    Episcopal, Canonical and Secular Memorial Devices in Medieval Cathedrals

    Art, Architecture, Liturgy and Writing

    TEMPLA invites international researchers into medieval art history and related disciplines to debate the concept and expression of “dynamic episcopal and canonical commemoration” which occurred in European episcopal sees during the medieval period. The concept of commemoration goes beyond the funerary to include all those works, activities and uses of space that transmit through time a record of bishops and canons, their institutions, and important lay people. These commemorative works, however, were grafted onto a common setting that was in use over a long period of time. Thus, each cathedral setting witnessed the emergence of different dynamics in terms of the interactions and intersections between individual and/or collective memory.

    The Bonds That Unite?

    Historical Perspectives on European Solidarity

    The concept of “solidarity” is in many respects fundamental to the European project. While pro-European intellectuals had long applied it as a more or less abstract reference, the concept evolved into a solid cornerstone of European unity after the Second World War. The notion of a European solidarity union was essential to validating the integration process and had always been a component of redistribution policies on the supra-national level. Nevertheless it remained context-sensitive and open to interpretation and consequently was always the outcome of complex negotiation processes. The conference will examine various manifestations and interpretations of the solidarity concept in the course of the 19th and 20th centuries.

    Defining and defying the concept of deviance and degeneration in the British Isles and North America in the 19th century

    This one-day conference aims at exploring the definition(s) and contours of deviance and degeneration as it was conceived in the British Isles and North America in the 19th century. PhD students, postgraduate students and junior scholars whose research pertains to the study of deviant groups, whether self-defined or not, are particularly welcome to participate. Speakers will be invited to focus on the processes of definition of the standards of normality – whether religious, social, political, legal, medicalor sexual – as well as what those processes entailed for those who were labelled ‘deviants’. The role of scientists, doctors but also political authorities is of considerable interest in this respect, as are the ways in which normative standards were circumvented and challenged.
