    Venice, a Mediterranean regional power

    Economic, maritime and political perspectives, 1669-1797

    This seminar aims to explore the relationship between Venice and the Mediterranean between the loss of Crete, the last major dominion of Venetian maritime empire in 1669, and the end of the Republic in 1797. Through the analysis of economic and commercial exchanges, naval activities and diplomatic/military relations of the Serenissima in the Mediterranean, we aim to discuss the dynamics of transformation and adjustment of the Republic’s new status as a regional power faced with the challenges of an Inner Sea crossed and populated by more powerful and richer competitors.

    Exvoto. El voto como objeto: concepción, exposición, patrimonialización

    Longtemps cantonnées à l’étude de ses formes picturales, les recherches sur l’ex-voto ont été renouvelées à l’aube du XXIsiècle révélant dans le même mouvement la complexité de sa définition. Objet d’un vœu, objet d’une promesse, l’ex-voto se caractérise par sa variabilité formelle et usuelle, qui brouille son identification. Il est alors essentiel de se tourner vers les spécialistes de sa fabrication pour considérer les conditions de son élaboration dans une temporalité complexe qui va de l’imploration du divin au dépôt de la chose promise. Quelle que soit la religion au sein de laquelle il prend forme, l’ex-voto est replacé dans un lieu de culte, et la question de son exposition devient centrale. Objet connecteur entre le profane et le sacré, sa valeur se transforme au gré de ses circulations et selon le lieu où il est présenté. De son exhibition dévotionnelle à son exposition patrimoniale, l’ex-voto nous permettra de nous interroger lors de ce colloque sur les interrelations qu’il construit entre : religion et esthétique, dévotion et patrimonialisation, culture populaire et culture savante.

    Territorial fractures, ruptures, discontinuities and borders: issues for planners

    The French-British Study Planning Group / Groupe franco-britannique de recherche en aménagement et urbanisme, has worked for 20 years on the building of networks and intellectual bridges between the communities of planning research and practice on both sides of the Channel. Since 2005 it has been formally constituted as a sub-group of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP). The potential retreat of the current United Kingdom from the European Union presents a new context and it is natural that the group should turn its attention to the territorial impacts which could arise as a result. It is also an occasion to reflect more widely on all forms of territorial discontinuities, ruptures and borders, including those at the national, regional and local scales, and which are of concern to planning research and practice.

    Preservation, Study, Dissemination, Institutionalisation

    The treatment of artistic legacies in all its different aspects involves great responsibility. Several players may take part in it: artists, their heirs or legal representatives, galleries, museums, foundations or academic institutions are the main promoters of the preservation, study, dissemination and management of artistic and documentary estates which make it possible to systematically trace the career path of a specific artist.

    Paradigms, models, scenarios and practices in terms of strong sustainability

    While the notion of sustainability continues to be associated with the Brundtland Report (1987) and the concept of sustainable development, a community of sustainability researchers and practitioners increasingly seeks to emancipate the concept to be consistent with the knowledge and aspirations of the moment. The enthusiasm and expectations for more sustainability go beyond mere environmental issues. They touch on crucial social issues as well. The symposium papers intends to question the paradigms, models, scenarios and practices that embody sustainability. One may wonder what meaning should be given to the very idea of sustainability and the representations it conveys.

    Gendered Species: Colette, Gender and Sexual Identities

    Espèces genrées : Colette, le genre et les identités sexuées

    Although French woman writer Colette was indifferent to and even critical of the feminist movement of the early 1900s, in the way she lived her life as in her fiction, she exemplified financial and social independence and shame-free sexuality, or what would be call today “gender fluidity”. This international conference will show how Colette represents a vibrant and radical expression of feminism in tune with the #MeToo spirit in today's society

    Urban and architectural identities in Mediterranean cities

    Identités urbaines et architecturales dans les villes méditerranéennes

    The architectural and urban diversity characterising mediterranean city is inseparable from their identity. It seems clear at that this diversity and multiplicity of different identities shoud be considered as one of the greatest cultural and human values. The coexistence of forms in time and space, the blending of urban and architectural cultures, influences and contaminations, even the contrast and and contradictions of identity that are revealed in the mediterranean urban  territory reflect the stratification of the city in its pragmatics implications and its identity meanings. Today, in a context of a competition and attractiveness betwen territories, several mediterranean cities are going through a period of profound changes. Faced with these transformations, the reference to "identity territories" (Troin, 2004) and the ability of the city to build an identity and speared it among the population are called into question.

    "Fake news". Art and information

    Inventing reality - between artistic production and historical enquiry

    Il tema delle fake news è di grande attualità e rilevanza per i mezzi e i fini con cui queste vengono messe in circolazione: esse hanno il potere di alterare la realtà e di far circolare notizie prive di fondamento.Durante la giornata di studi si indagherà la modalità in cui l’alterazione del messaggio è stata assunta come verità nella storia dell’arte, ripercorrendo l’iter del processo artistico e la conseguente creazione delle fake news.

    Integrating Gender in the History of Humanitarian aid: Europe (20th –21st century)

    À l’heure des élections européennes, un colloque international se tient à Angers sur un sujet qui porte sur l’histoire de l’action humanitaire à l’échelle de l’Europe, à partir de la première guerre mondiale jusqu’à aujourd’hui avec l’investissement de l’Union européenne dans l’aide humanitaire. Le colloque pluridisciplinaire, Intégrer le genre à l’histoire de l’aide humanitaire, interroge l’action humanitaire au prisme des questions du genre. Il s’agit de comprendre en quoi le genre a pu avoir un impact sur le travail humanitaire et en quoi l’absence de prise en compte du genre a pu se répercuter sur les actions de terrain.
