    Contestations, Emotions! Social and artistic expressions in the Public Space

    A theoretical and practical perspective from the ground

    During the recent movements of contestation in Mediterranean countries different kind of aesthetic gestures using the streets and the public spaces as places for a public manifestation of some social, ordinary -or radical- critic. They proceed from an ordinary culture that is transformed, adapted then spread out upon a new form in artistic tracks taking place in public spaces. These actions have both a critical and aesthetic dimension. They rely on the environment, mobilize cognitive, memorial and cultural or ordinary patterns. They also mobilize a common culture . This is the case of rap, new uses of old music, villages against occupation, graphic art in Palestine, in Egypt or in Syria. The conference will present and analyse some forms of experimentations, and public and critical commitments. What kind of “public spaces” is in use nowadays? How it configures new spaces of critic and public space and a new environment ? The panel will adopt a trans-disciplinary perspective by bringing together social scientists and practicers or activists.

    Beyond soft power: The stakes and configurations of the influence of contemporary Turkey in the world

    This workshop will explore the theme of Turkish political and cultural influence in the world, exploring scientific debates on the topic of “soft power” and its applicability to contemporary Turkey. This workshop aims at raising several questions: To what extent is the concept of “soft power” adequate to characterize Turkey’s influence and its weaknesses both on the international stage and towards its neighboring countries? Reciprocally, how can the analysis of the different patterns of Turkey’s influence help us question the concept of “soft power”, and to come up with other notions?

    Metropolitan energy policies: the case of the Turkish cities

    Call for paper for a Seminar at the French Institute of Anatolian Studies (IFEA), co-organized by Eric Verdeil (Jean Moulin University in Lyon - UMR Environment City Corporation) and Jean-François Pérouse (Galatasaray University and IFEA). The report Energy and Urban Innovation (2010) by the World Energy Council underlines the fundamental role of cities in the energy transition and the interlocking of several series of actions, related to technology, economy and policy. It appears that the political and social practices are a major issue and justify an increased contribution of social sciences to the analysis of the implementation of these new policies. The seminar intends to address these issues in the case of large Turkish cities.

    Seminar - Modern

    Territorial and Border Configurations to the Test of Mobility and Migrations (19th-21st century)

    Ce séminaire international organisé par le programme MIMED de la MMSH d'Aix-en-Provence en partenariat avec le CRFJ examinera l’évolution des processus sociaux, économiques et politiques liés à la mise en place de dispositifs de gestion des mobilités et de la coprésence en Méditerranée. Il envisagera à la fois les politiques publiques mettant en place ces dispositifs à l’échelle d’Etats, de régions ou de villes, et les réactions des populations à ces dispositifs, leurs formes d’adaptation, de transgression ou de contournement. Il tentera enfin d’évaluer dans quelle mesure les réactions des populations peuvent en retour affecter les dispositifs. Dans la durée (du XIXe au XXIe siècle), Il s'agira d'interroger l’influence croissante des processus nés de la globalisation sur les mobilités et les configurations territoriales.
