    Languages in European University Alliances: challenges and issues

    Strategic partnerships across the EU between higher education institutions encouraged the emergence of European Universities, a key driver for improving the quality of Higher Education and strengthening links with the European research and innovation landscape, but also with society and the economy. Which will be the role of languages in University Alliances’ strategies for interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches, maintaining different contextual linguistic, rhetorical, and disciplinary traditions? Will multilingualism be enhanced, and with what perspectives? The CEL/ELC (European Language Council) Forum intends to bring together contributions, experiences, and reflections on the role of languages in HELP (Language Policy in Higher Education), on strategies for their valorisation, on intercomprehension practices, on methodologies and actions to promote plurilingualism.

    A Transatlantic Mediterranean?

    Circulations, influences and civilian and military cooperation between the United States and Southern European and Turkish spaces (1945-1980's)

    The objective of this meeting is to contribute to a transnational and decompartmentalized history of the circulations between Mediterranean Europe and the United States between 1945 and the 1980s, which will make it possible to apprehend these relations from a global point of view and to analyze the way in which these links were able to generate circulations of influence between Mediterranean countries. The aim is to combine diplomatic approaches with the socio-history of these actors and with the analysis of the circulation of knowledge and modes of governmentality, by placing Atlantic military issues and policies in the wider context of intellectual mobility and cross-practices. The European and Turkish Mediterranean is understood here in a broad and political sense, from Portugal to the confines of the Anatolian peninsula. Similarly, the ambition is to see how these relations between Mediterranean Europe and the Atlantic space may have had effects on the Southern and Eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, whether during or after the period of colonial domination.

    Conference, symposium - Ethnology, anthropology

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity

    FolkFocus

    The conference aims to study the hungarian folk movement called “táncházmozgalom” (“dance house movement”). In 2022, this movement celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the first “táncház” (“dance house”, type of traditional dance ball), held in Budapest on the 6th of May 1972. The process of “learning by doing” is a central dynamic to the personal investment of the youngsters in this movement, during the music and dance lessons as well as during the táncházak (dance houses), koncertek (concerts) and táborok (camps). The dance house movement is also very much marked by hungarian ethnography of the XXth century. The practices of dancing and music are anchored in the consulting of numerous works and archives of ethnographic collections from the last century. As such, the “táncházmozgalom” is often called “revival movement” since it brings melodies and steps of rural folk music back up to date in the modern and urban context of Budapest.

    Thinking Europe Visually

    L'Europe par l'image et en images

    "If I had to do it again, I would start with culture": this statement often erroneously attributed to Jean Monnet suggests that in the absence of a shared culture, Europe as a political and economic construct remains nothing but a hollow shell. This conference aims to question the disillusioned position which holds that there is no meaningful common European culture, and to do so through images. One way to visualize the potential existence and limits of a European cultural base is indeed to trace the circulation of images – be they works of art, press images, posters, photographs, or even motifs and patterns – in the region, from antiquity through to the present day. What are the images that have circulated most widely in Europe? Are they specific to Europe or are they already globalized? What was their visual and symbolic impact? Is there a "visual culture" specific to Europe and, if so, what might be its distinctive "patterns"?

    Conviviality and Sociability in the Long Eighteenth Century: Restoration to Romanticism

    Christoph Heyl (Univ. Duisburg-Essen) and Rémy Duthille (Univ. Bordeaux-Montaigne) are continuing the long tradition of the Landau-Paris Symposia on the Eighteenth Century, welcoming both established scholars of the field and early career researchers. The symposium focuses on the literature and culture of the British Isles of the period, but it is also open to topics relating to the British colonies, France, Germany, and further afield. The conference will include a panel of emerging scholars who are working on their PhD projects or are planning to begin a PhD project in the near future.

    Olive4All: The actors of the olive tree heritage and their commitment

    The first conference organised in the framework of the JPI-CH Olive4All project will take place in Kalamata from 28 May to 1 June 2022. It is part of the first workpackage of the project dedicated to the inventory of the olive tree heritage and to the identification of the actors who own it in the three regions of the programme (Provence in France, Messinia in Greece, Tras o Montes, Alto Douro and Alentejo in Portugal). Based on the joint surveys carried out, we will look at the actors linked to the olive tree heritage, the motivations for their commitment to its preservation and the forms of this commitment.

    Understanding the War in the Ukraine

    CFP Forum Ukraine - The American University of Paris

    The George and Irina Schaeffer Center for the Study of Genocide, Human Rights, and Conflict Prevention, and the American University of Paris hope to provide a virtual forum on May 9-10, 2022, for scholars from multiple disciplines and humanitarian activists to process the causes and consequences of the war in the Ukraine. Because of the urgency and ongoing nature of the conflict, we are not expecting polished academic presentations but short (10-15 minutes) thought pieces that help to elucidate various aspects and interpretations of the war. A primary aim is to give Ukrainian and Russian scholars the opportunity to express themselves and their point of view.

    Traces et représentations du passé dans les monuments et le patrimoine, XIXe-XXIe siècle (Europe-Amérique latine)

    Les traces du passé constituent les buttes-témoins (des témoins) d’événements historiques à jamais révolus : elles rendent présent ce qui appartient au passé et l’incarnent de manière non intentionnelle. Elles sont parfois l’objet d’un réinvestissement symbolique qui les désigne en marques, caractérisées par une signature intentionnelle de la part d’un acteur identifiable. L’enjeu est ici d’historiciser les usages des traces et des monuments selon les périodes considérées et de les situer dans un contexte local précis afin d’en repérer d’éventuelles singularités. Le jeu des circulations, des imitations dans l’espace euro-américain fera l’objet d’une attention particulière.

    Le corps envahi dans la littérature italienne (XIXe-XXIe siècle)

    Depuis quelques décennies ont fleuri les études, qui, dans des champs disciplinaires très divers, ont renversé la primauté traditionnelle que l’Occident octroyait à la dimension psychique de l’être humain (esprit, âme, intellect) pour faire place au corps, non comme simple substrat matériel et biologique, mais comme construction historique au statut varié, pensé et envisagé selon des perspectives culturelles très différentes, et pris dans un réseau dense de relations sociales, politiques et symboliques. Portés par ce mouvement, nous nous proposons d’examiner le rôle que joue la littérature dans la définition de cet habitat véritable des êtres vivants, et plus précisément, de mettre en évidence les différentes formes d’« invasion » qui se font jour dans la littérature italienne depuis le décadentisme jusqu’à nos jours.

    Dreaming Things

    Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Object Worlds and Dream Cultures

    While the close interconnection between the universe of things (expanding in a commodity-shaped way), the dream and its reflection in arts and media may be considered a founding trope of European modernity around 1900, the extension of our focus on pre-modern contexts and transcultural constellations in the present opens up new perspectives on connections between object cultures and dream cultures.

    From Liège to Strasbourg. New Research on the German-French Border Region During the High and Late Middle Ages (11th–16th Century)

    In the High and Late Middle Ages, the border region between the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire was a dynamic space not only in terms of territorial politics, but also in economic, religious, social and cultural terms, which always requires cross-border work in historical research. Despite this elementary precondition, there is currently a lack of cross-national and cross-language exchange, especially for young academics. In order to meet this need, we would like to invite MA graduates and young researchers to present their current research projects to a professional audience and to discuss them within the setting of a young researchers’ conference.

    Venice, a Mediterranean regional power

    Economic, maritime and political perspectives, 1669 – 1797

    The Mediterranean has always been at the heart of Venice’s interests during the Early Modern Period. A main source of its prosperity, the Inner Sea maintained its vital role even after the “northern invasions”, the battle of Lepanto and the “downturn” of the 17th century. 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.

    The Fear of Shrinking Numbers

    Democracy, Demography and the East-West Divide in Europe

    Electing a government is what people do in a democracy, but governments also tend to choose the people who will elect them. They do it by designing citizenship laws and electoral laws, by crafting immigration regimes and by employing practices like gerrymandering and voters’ suppression. This four lectures series discusses the ways in which the shrinking ethnocultural majorities in the European Union (EU) member states try to preserve their power and identity in the face of population decline and increasing migration.
