    Fleeing the Nazis: the blessed exiles of Asia?

    This meeting is a continuation of the franco-german conference held in Berlin in 2014 about "Heroes and heroic myths : a social and cultural construction : Germany, France, Japan" (published in 2017 at Leipziger Universitätsverlag). After having studied those ambivalent constructions of warrior 'heroes', this new conference focuses on two other ambivalences associated with WWII : the position of host states towards exiles fleeing from nazism and the "survival ethic" of the exiles themselves.

    Advocating religious freedom in the Helsinki process

    New research perspectives on the non-state actors in view of the 50th anniversary of the Helsinki treaty (1975–2025)

    This online workshop aims at further exploring human rights activists involved in the Helsinki process, at the interface between the Dissent and the Western public, and between state and other private networks. The focus of this workshop is on the religion, on religious networks and actors who advocate religious freedom and human rights in the CSCE process. We are particularly interested in contributions focussing on the neutral States of Europe (e.g. Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Ireland, Malta, Austria) and on Eastern European groups as they are often underrepresented in international research.

    New Perspectives on Anti-Colonialism in the Metropolis

    The transnational networks of colonialism and increased mobility led to a rise in anti-colonial activism in European metropoles from the interwar period onwards. A central role can be ascribed to activists resisting against imperialism from within, as they played a crucial role in the organization of anticolonial resistance in metropole and colony. This PhD and early career workshop aims to examine anti-colonial activism in the European metropoles from interwar to immediate post-war period.

    Refugees and the (Global) Cold War

    This international workshop will chart the intersection between refugee history and Cold War history. The most well-known connection between these two fields is the figure of the political refugee fleeing from the socialist East to the democratic West. As recent research in both areas has highlighted, however, forced displacement and Cold War competition were global phenomena. To explore the entanglement of refugee history and Cold War history in its full scope - including the above-mentioned anticommunist refugees, who remain a crucial part of the story - the workshop invites a broad range of contributions in terms of chronology, geography, and methodology, from PhD students, early career researchers, and established scholars.

    Wellbeing, Harm, and Religion

    International Religious Studies PhD Conference 2021

    Different conceptions of harm and wellbeing derived from different religious traditions retain their relevance in many locales across the globe even today, as they did in history. They intertwine(d) with “secular” medical practices; religious actors can formulate stances towards modern medical technologies, like vaccination and blood transfusion; and religion sometimes articulates alternative theories about the nature and origin of various diseases and about their treatment. With this conference, we aim to create a platform for the study of the intersections amongst religion, health, and diverse cultural conceptions of harm and wellbeing.

    Research in Medieval Studies - An International Meeting Series

    The past decade has witnessed a marked increase in medieval studies. Younger scholars have, in general, benefitted from doctoral and post-doctoral funding, besides collective research programmes. This, along with the experience and know-how of established academics in countless departments around the Globe has helped to foster this renewal. Results have been ground-breaking in many topics. The Research in Medieval Studies (RiMS) is conceived of as an ongoing series of yearly meetings whose aim is to bring scholars of different academic and geographical backgrounds together to open, or otherwise continue and direct, historiographical debate on key issues in medieval studies, while helping to establish outstanding research that is both innovative and comparative.

    Langues de travail / langues au travail

    Revue « Études en didactique des langues », n° 38

    This issue of FLLTR is devoted to the relationship between the workplace and languages. The terms “working language” and “language at work” cover different realities. The first is a language commonly used in a professional context. The second is used to carry out certain tasks such as writing a report, a technical note or an article. This raises the problem of upstream training. In higher education in particular, language learning and acquisition are key aspects of student training. There is also the problem of the predominance of English. How much emphasis should be given to other languages in training in order to stimulate reflection on the interface between companies and training?

    Penser le monde en philosophie après Kant

    Il s’agira de voir en quoi la prétention de constituer un monde se trouve frappée d’un aveu d’impuissance vu l’irréductible finitude de l’homme—trouvaille qui entachera durablement la phénoménologie. De nombreuses lectures phénoménologiques de Kant ont été proposées, à commencer par celles de Husserl, de Fink, de Heidegger, de Merleau-Ponty…Ce séminaire a pour objectif de questionner en profondeur la pertinence et les limites de telles lectures, à commencer par celle de Michaël Foessel. À travers ses ouvrages, notamment Kant et l’équivoque du monde (CNRS, 2015), Foessel vise à éclaircir le sens du monde chez Kant et analyse les répercussions de la conception kantienne du monde : nous proposons de nous interroger avec lui sur le monde après Kant.

    The Sociology of Yoga, Meditation, and Asian Asceticism

    Annual Review of the Sociology of Religion

    The irresistible yet unexpected diffusion at a global scale and appropriation of yoga, meditation and ascetic practices are undoubtedly key features of the changing landscape of religion at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. It comes under a variety of forms, from traditional and community-based ritualized practices to individualized and secularized techniques of well-being. This special issue aims at mapping the empirical forms of yoga, meditation and introspective techniques expanding worldwide; exploring new conceptual and methodological discussions in sociologyof religions; questioning the possibility to circumscribe a specific subfield in the sociology of religions, devoted to  modern Asian-inspired ascetic practices.

    Questioning heritage and tourism through gender

    The International Meeting of Young Researchers in Tourism (RIJCT) “Interrogating heritage and tourism processes through a gender perspective” will take place on 6, 7 and 8 September 2021. Their aim is to propose new reflections in the consideration of gender in tourism and heritage studies. The RIJCT proposes an overview of the latest studies which analyse gender through domination relationships and identities structure. The different lines of studies analyse gender through the methodological issues, intersectionality in touristic and heritage projects, and attractiveness policies.

    Death and Religion

    Death and religion share an interdependent relation. Where death is an event or state that threatens to disintegrate worlds and meaning, religion can be seen as a practice that categorizes, consoles and makes sense of this kind of disintegration. This special issue encourages scholars to contribute to this debate. Of special interest are situations in which religion becomes overbearing and a burden to carry forward in times of death, or if religious practices are obstructed, for example, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How do these crisis situations affect the relationship between religion and death? This special issue aims at invoking curiosity, enquiry and interest in looking at the different facets of this topic.

    Doing Fieldwork in Centres of Power

    The Example of Deliberative Bodies

    The aim of this call is to gather contributions in order to publish an edited volume on the methodological and epistemological challenges specifically posed by the practice of fieldwork in centres of power. The ambition is to draw on the experience of researchers who have already been confronted with these issues in order to offer examples, paths for reflection and keys to researchers in anthropology, sociology and political science who would like to venture into them in their turn, in order to help them grasp the challenges they pose and adjust their fieldwork practices to respond to them. To narrow the perspective as much as to emphasize a form of power centre that is now widespread, deliberative assemblies are taken as a case study. The latter bring together institutions with different reasons for being (e.g. political, legal or religious) and their scale (local, national or international).

    Food in Medieval and Early Modern Societies (12th-18th centuries)

    The researcher-led Visual and Material History Working Group of the European University Institute in Florence invites participants to a one-day conference on the visual and material culture of the history of food in medieval and early modern societies. We welcome proposals covering any aspect of food history, from the twelfth to the eighteenth century. Papers should discuss the methodology and the perspectives brought by the use of objects and visual representations as source material. We aim for this conference to reach beyond the bounds of historical scholarship and therefore warmly welcome papers from the fields of history of art and archaeology.
