    Fortress Europe, Border Lampedusa

    Migrations across the Mediterranean Sea in cultural perspective

    This book aims to explore political, social, cultural, economic and artistic expressions of, and issues around, Lampedusa as a metaphor of several (visible and invisible) powers that, at different levels (micro, meso and macro), impinges on the relations between Europe and Africa/Asia, etc. The intent is to propose a comprehensive reflection contemplating several approaches and perspectives regarding the relationship of this island as first/last border of the Fortress Europe. Migration is the core topic, but it could be approached with different materials.

    The Notion of Intelligence in Ancient Greece (nous-noein), from Homer to Platonism

    Vol. 16 Methodos (2016)

    The aim of this issue of Methodos is to gather contributions of international scholars on the notion of nous-noein in order to reconstruct the history of the terms related to intelligence and its activities. The issue will mainly try to outline the evolution of such terms, from their original perceptual meaning to their conceptual and theoretical scope. Contributions should thus provide materials and analysis to identify the stages and ruptures in the evolution of their use. Additionally, all attempts to trace the technical and cultural transformations which have allowed the passage from the practical understanding of the nous-noein to its more abstract uses are welcome. Papers should by no means be limited to genetic or historical reconstructions; we also welcome any paper bringing some new elements of reflection on the notion of intelligence in the chosen era.

    Immigration: Fear and the Media

    Magazine Africa e Mediterraneo No. 82

    The issue 82 of Africa e Mediterraneo wants to investigate the challenges brought about by media and political communication, considering as focuses of analysis the communication processes within the European society (both of local media and migrants’ initiatives) and those activated in the African Countries, being aware that the circulation of ideas, images and cultural practices is more and more leading to a growing deterritorialization of the media and their messages and to the consequential crossing of national borders.

    A global history of free ports

    Capitalism, commerce and geopolotics (1600-1900)

    Exactly how free ports arose in early-modern Europe is still subject to debate. Livorno, Genoa and other Italian cities became famous as major examples of a particular way of attracting trade. Between the late eighteenth and the nineteenth century the existence of free ports – as specific fiscal, cultural, political and economic entities with different local functions and characteristics – developed from an Italian and European into a global phenomenon. While a general history of free ports – from their first emergence to the present-day special economic zones – has never been written, this research network aims to pave the way for such an enterprise. The history of free ports research network is organising a number of conferences in the next years, in order to work towards a standard publication and interactive research platform for the history of free ports from the XVIth to the early XXth century.

    Ethnographic Films in Greece: Impressions of Otherness

    The majority of anthropologists in Greece, like elsewhere, seems reluctant to use visual means in their fieldwork. Obviously they prefer writing texts in order to communicate their work (even if they have collected certain visual footages in the field) instead of filming and assembling their visual data. At the same time, although ethnographic or fiction films are often used in the teaching of folklore, anthropology and sociology, university teachers get rarely involved themselves in their production.

    Uses of the world and photography. Crossed perspectives on the work of Fred Boissonnas

    Le département de géographie de l'Université de Genève organise une journée d'étude interdisciplinaire consacrée à l'œuvre du photographe Fred Boissonnas (1858-1946), l'un des acteurs majeurs de l’histoire de la photographie en Suisse. En croisant les approches, les savoirs, les points de vue, il s’agit de mettre en lumière la complexité et la richesse de la carrière de ce photographe-voyageur et éditeur, ses influences en Suisse et à l'étranger, et son héritage. L’étude de son œuvre permet de s'interroger sur le développement de l’usage de la photographie dans les sociétés européennes entre 1880 et 1930, comme art mais aussi comme moyen de communication pour appréhender l’ailleurs, le passé, et construire des identités tant locales que nationales.

    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.

    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.

    Workshop on sexual violence in modern southern European history

    Southern European gender models and the implications of these on the study of sexual violence in the western world are relatively under-theorised within broader narratives of the western subject. This workshop seeks to address this lacuna through an exploration of the intersection of southern European culture – understood through the prism of “unity in diversity” – and sexual violence in the modern period. A thorough comparison of sexual violence within the diverse localities of the European south will allow similarities and differences to emerge, and will help to decentre current emphasis on the English-speaking world within the current historiography on sexual violence.
