    Controversies over Methods in European Union law

    This series of seminars aims at providing an overview of different methods in European Union law, both old and new, both mainstream and not, by putting them in perspective with each other and by questioning their underlying assumptions. In order to do so, participants are expected to engage in a reflexive exercise that will make their methods and their position in the controversy explicit: What methods do they use and what do these methods imply? With whom and against whom do they think European Union law? Do they find it useful to exhume an author that in their view has been unduly neglected or, on the contrary, to call for new approaches to understand EU law?

    Concevoir la ville de demain

    The way we live in the 21st century and recent health events have changed the traditional organisation of public space in the city. The social and cultural dimension has been particularly affected. Population flows and their circulation, the organisation of individual and common spaces must be rethought in order to find harmony for everyone. Faced with new ecological, health, social and economic developments, we ask an essential question: What is the city of today made of? How can we build the city of tomorrow?

    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.

    Dynamics of social protection for children in Africa

    Child social protection refers to a set of measures aimed at reducing poverty among this social category, managing its individual risks and promoting its equitable and sustainable growth. Beyond ideological visions and co-representations about Childhood, the realities offered by the Africain socioeconomic environment make it possible to report a more concrete anthropological point of view on the meaning and value of children’s lived experiences. These various realities thus allow us to identify some avenues allowing us to better understand the process by which most children are subjected to trafficking in order to better define the mechanisms leading to their social protection.

    Did you say “authentic”?

    6th International Doctoral Days of “Transitions” (ULiège)

    On the 5th and 6th of May, 2022, the sixth edition of the Research Unit Transitions (Research Department on the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period)’s international Doctoral Days will be held at the University of Liège. Organised in partnership with the Centre d’études supérieures de civilisation médiévale (CESCM) of the University of Poitiers, these days will be structured around the theme of authenticity. The notion of authenticity is by its very nature polysemous and complex to define. The aim of these Doctoral Days is to examine authenticity in its various meanings and according to the various methodological approaches pertaining to different fields of research. The presentations will be oriented according to two distinct, but complementary axes: “The object to the test of time” and “Authenticity, a guarantee of truth?”.

    Conflicts of interpretation: hermeneutics at the crossroads of knowledge

    L’atelier de cette année propose de reprendre le geste du « conflit des interprétations ». En prenant la philosophie herméneutique de Ricœur comme axe principal, il s’agira de mettre en évidence ses relations avec d’autres perspectives philosophiques ou d’autres champs disciplinaires, qui entretiennent avec elle un rapport de proximité ou au contraire de distance critique.

    Welcoming Migrants in the City : Interrogating Urban Policy and Civic Action

    This symposium proposes to explore the underlying processes in the construction of welcoming initiatives towards migrants in urban areas, to question the theoretical frameworks that support them, including the duty of hospitality in humanitarian action, the offer of “sanctuary” by local authorities in conflict with the State, and the cosmopolitan and progressive image of the “welcoming city”. The conference aims to continue these lines of analysis in an international perspective, by bringing together scholars from Europe, the Americas, Africa, and beyond, in order to interrogate the urban reception of migrants from perspectives that are complementary and attentive to specific environments, in terms of the characteristics of migration dynamics and the existing forms of action. Approaches from anthropology, sociology, geography, political science, law, and urban studies are welcome.

    Conflicts of interpretation: hermeneutics at the crossroads of knowledge

    CRAL-EHESS / Fonds Ricœur doctoral workshop 2021-2022

    L’œuvre de Paul Ricœur a été un lieu privilégié de rencontre entre plusieurs courants et traditions de pensée, aussi bien philosophiques qu’issus d’autres champs disciplinaires. Sa pensée, dialogique par excellence, se construit à la faveur de l’entrecroisement de plusieurs perspectives révélant chacune différents aspects d’un même phénomène et dont la combinaison n’implique pas une synthèse totalisante, mais plutôt une construction continue assumant l’analyse par principe toujours inachevée. L’atelier de cette année propose de reprendre le geste du « conflit des interprétations ». En prenant la philosophie herméneutique de Ricœur comme axe principal, il s’agira de mettre en évidence son articulation avec d’autres perspectives philosophiques, qui entretiennent avec elle un rapport de proximité ou au contraire de distance critique.

    Seminar - History

    A material history of music and the performance arts

    From a domestic economy to a political economy (16th-20th century)

    Les ouvrages d’économie politique anciens réservent généralement une place aux arts dans les chapitres consacrés aux produits immatériels, à la consommation ou au luxe. Le séminaire interrogera la manière dont ces réflexions théoriques peuvent plus ou moins s’articuler avec les pratiques musicales et les arts de la scène. Pour la période qui a précédé l’émergence de l’économie politique comme discipline, on explorera notamment la notion d’économie domestique qui prévalait dans les maisons aristocratiques ainsi que dans celles de la haute bourgeoisie et est demeurée présente jusqu’au milieu du XXsiècle dans plusieurs domaines de l’économie artistique.

    Incest and sexual violence to children

    Between research subject and professional experience

    Ce séminaire pluridisciplinaire (histoire, sociologie et anthropologie), organisé dans le cadre de l’ANR « Dire, entendre et restituer les violences incestueuses » (DERVI), se concentrera sur l’inceste, au sens des relations sexuelles imposées à un enfant dans le cadre familial. Il interrogera la construction de l’inceste comme forme de violence sexuelle, ainsi que le moment primordial de son dévoilement et de sa prise en charge en des contextes (familial, judiciaire, administratif, médiatique, littéraire), suivant des modalités (révélation, dénonciation, témoignage, signalement, détection, récits, « affaires ») et avec des répercussions (indignation, indifférence, déni, scandale) variables.

    “Gelan”. Laughing, making laugh, theorizing laughter

    Comicality and playfulness between words, concepts, and practices in ancient texts

    The “funny”, “humorous”, “ironic”, and “playful” dimensions of ancient works have often been the focus of modern scholarship and the subject of several published volumes and articles. Nevertheless, there have been no comprehensive studies that explore both the terms themselves and how to make these useful for the evaluation of ancient literature and art in a way that examines their heuristic value, with the goal of arriving at more objective interpretations. Since defining the comic and the playful remains a fundamental problem, conceptual tools are still needed so as to better identify and appreciate content of this kind in ancient works. The aim of this thematic dossier of Methodos is to refine the tools and methods that would permit such analyses.
