    The Worlds of Pre-Modern Neutrality (ca. 1400-1800): Norms, Institutions and Practices

    This symposium aims to contribute new insights to the long-term history of neutrality, focusing on its "pre modern" dimension broadly understood (ca. 1400-1800). Indeed, the law of neutrality started to emerge in the Early Modern Age through the practices and beliefs of the European state system, but also from its interactions with non-European normative and cultural systems. Different but complementary angles of approach can be used to understand this phenomenon: e.g. diplomatic history, IR history, political history, economic history and legal history. Throughout history, polities as well as private actors have interpreted neutrality in flexible and divergent ways, e.g. proposing a proactive-assertive approach or a more passive and inward looking one. Benefiting from multiple disciplinary perspectives, the symposium takes into consideration both the theory and the practice of neutrality, advancing our knowledge of the often-contested conceptualisation of legal regimes at sea as well as on land. Such a conceptualisation depended on the interaction between situations of peace and diverged across different temporal and spatial coordinates.

    Food, power and the African diaspora: Exploring intersections

    Issue of Civilisations journal vol.74, 2025

    Over the last decade the concept of decolonisation has circulated not just in academic circles but also in the political arena and activism in the global North-West. To what extent do decolonisation efforts carry the potential for food justice and in what ways are African diasporas concerned about the decolonisation of food systems and engaged in efforts to make their foods more accessible? We seek contributions that engage with the experiences of diasporic communities and their aspirations, struggles and actions to reshape African food systems. This issue seeks to explore socio-cultural, economic and political aspects of the foodways of the African diasporas. The focus is the dynamics and interplays of power shaping current African food systems and how African diasporas relate to and engage with their food traditions.

    De la parole au corps du monde. Lorand Gaspar à la croisée des langues, des cultures et des disciplines

    Lauréat des très prestigieux prix Guillaume Apollinaire (1967) et Goncourt de la poésie (1998), Lorand Gaspar, poète, traducteur, historien, photographe mais aussi remarquable médecin chirurgien, voit le jour le 28 février 1925. Située au confluent des cultures et des disciplines, l’œuvre de cet écrivain francophone aux origines transylvaines a déjà suscité l’intérêt de nombreux chercheurs et plusieurs travaux universitaires lui ont été consacrés, dont une partie importante s’est constituée par le biais des nombreuses traductions réalisées à partir de et par Gaspar lui-même. Nous proposons aux personnes intéressées (spécialistes de l’auteur, critiques historiens, poètes, traducteurs, médecins, etc.) un colloque qui aura lieu dans sa ville d’origine : Târgu-Mureş.

    Le monde en polycrise: défis géopolitiques et réponses du droit international

    Le monde se trouve au cœur d’une « polycrise », un enchevêtrement de crises qui s’étendent aux systèmes mondiaux. Le terme « polycrise » illustre la façon dont les crises mondiales sont interconnectées, entrelacées et s’aggravent mutuellement. Si ce concept est utilisé avec plus de clarté et de précision qu'il ne l’a été jusqu’à présent, il pourrait apporter des éclaircissements essentiels et nouveaux sur notre situation actuelle. C'est pourquoi l’Université européenne de Valencia lance un appel à communications sur les thèmes suivants : les approches conceptuelles de la polycrise, l’impact de la polycrise sur l’économie, l’intelligence artificielle dans le contexte de la polycrise, les nouvelles inégalités générées par la polycrise, les réponses juridiques et politiques au défi de la polycrise, l'environnement en tant que cause et « victime » de la polycrise, ainsi que l'impact de la polycrise sur la sécurité et les droits de l“homme.

    African colonialism : Origins, development and modern challenges

    This call for paper explores the multifaceted nature of African nationalism, which encompasses historical, political, social, economic, cultural, and linguistic dimensions. It argues that scholarly research on this topic should adopt an interdisciplinary approach to fully grasp its complexity. African nationalism, rooted in colonialism, evolved as a response to internal and external factors, aiming for political independence and broader African unity. However, post-independence challenges in governance, economic development, cultural identity, and education persist. The call emphasizes the need for further interdisciplinary research to delve into the past, present, and future of African nationalism.

    Divided memories and political-cultural imaginaries in post–Cold War Europe

    "Europe: cultures, memories, identities" Journal, no. 1 / 2025 (first issue)

    This journal is especially devoted to the study of the dynamics of memories and of cultural identity representations which have shaped the spaces of experience, the horizons of expectation, and the sociocultural imaginaries in “Europe’s Europes” in the 20th and 21st centuries. It provides a special outlet to the analysis grounded in cultural memory studies, and particularly in contemporary theories of “agonistic memory”, considered as a “third way”, that of the research of an equilibrium between the contraries embodied in the two competitive paradigms which have disputed their hegemony in the European area, particularly since the end of the Cold War: the cosmopolitan/ transnational one, and the national(ist)/ antagonistic one.

    Cultural and Creative Industries in Africa and the Arab World

    The main objective of this first edition of the International Conference on Cultural Engineering and Heritage Development is to approach the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) in African and Arab contexts and their evolution in the era of postmodernism; era that is characterized by focus on knowledge, intangibility and digitalization. While the core of CCIs remains in works of art, artistic expressions, cultural heritage, and traditional know-how, the production and reproduction models of art and culture have continued to reinvent themselves, as is the case with those of creation. Thus, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the main themes of this conference focus on the complexity of CCIs in Africa and the Arab world, their specificities, and the issues their development generates.

    Mémoire pour l’avenir, nostalgie et utopie dans les imaginaires socioculturels des « Europes de l’Europe » contemporaines

    En analysant, une décennie après la fin de la Guerre Froide, les changements survenus au cours du dernier quart du siècle passé sur le plan de l’expérience et des perceptions du temps. Le caractère multidimensionnel de la mémoire historique et ses rapports avec l’avenir dans le contexte des « transformations sans précédent » entraînées par le progrès technologique et par les défis climatiques représentent également des axes majeurs dans les recherches récentes en historiographie et en philosophie de l’histoire. À l’intersection de la mémoire historique avec celle politique, la nostalgie fonctionne comme « une épée à deux tranchants », en ce qu’elle semble être tant « un antidote émotionnel pour la politique », que « le meilleur instrument politique ». Les chercheurs de divers domaines sont encouragés à soumettre des propositions explorant plusieurs thèmes liés à la mémoire, à la nostalgie et à l’utopie en Europe post-Guerre Froide.

    Energy transitions and economic thinking in German-speaking territories, 1800-2000

    ETRANHET explores how economic ideas on energy have developed in various market-economy contexts around the world, since the first waves of industrialization at the turn of the 19th century. It particularly addresses three key questions: (1) How did past economists (broadly defined) conceive the connection between energy, growth, and development? (2) How did they consider innovation and technological change in energy affairs? (3) How did economic discourse on energy influence policymaking, and vice versa? Areas covered by the project include Continental Europe, the British Isles, North and Latin America, South-East Asia, and some areas under colonial control. This workshop will be an opportunity to look more closely at German-speaking territories within Continental Europe.

    History and Memory: Epistemological Reinterpretation of Africa's Past in a Post-Colonial Context

    “Práticas da História” journal

    This special issue of Práticas da História is interested in receiving contributions, referring to colonial and post-colonial African contexts. It is important to better understand what is happening in different African countries, at the level of the Academy but also in other spaces where social memory and history confront each other, and how political, ideological, economic and linguistic factors interfere in those situations. In the case of the former Portuguese colonies, which will soon celebrate 50 years of independence, there are additional factors, such as the later end of colonial rule and the delay in historiography about Africa that occurred until recent decades, both in Portugal and in Brazil.

    The Pioneers of TransAmerican Art: in the footsteps of a Caribbean Diaspora aesthetic

    “Angles” journal

    Contributors to this thematic issue of Angles are invited to underline the connection to these ancestral memories and explore their current resurgence in the visual and living arts. Contributions can bear on scientific, fictional, and secular literature, the genius of dance and music, and the visual, scenic, culinary, performing, visual and ritual arts. Themes of interest could include but are not limited to, decoloniality, body politics, representation, restorative justice, Caribbean indigenous thought and practices, and diasporic art spaces. In the spirit of collegiality that animates this publication project, we intend to create the same dynamic between the communities of researchers and artists of the Greater Anglophone Caribbean. This dynamic is therefore open to all those who want to maintain a constructive dialogue to advance the knowledge and sharing of Caribbean aesthetics in the footsteps of the pioneers of TransAmerican art.
