    Artistic Neighbourhoods between Tension and Cooperation

    The Artistic Space of Central and Eastern Europe in its Interactions with the USSR in the Interwar Period

    In the Interwar period the Soviet administration conceived a new type of cultural diplomacy with the aim of attaining political, diplomatic and propagandist ends. Historians have been mainly interested in cultural experiences and exchanges with Western Europe or/and with the United States, while neighbouring countries are often excluded from studies of these circulations. The workshop, which will take place on June 1, 2021 aims to revisit the artistic and cultural history of the interwar period from the perspective of relations between the USSR and Central and Eastern Europe, through the study of the international career of artists and works of art in the broad sense of the term (painting, sculpture and specifically graphic art productions). The goal of this workshop is to bring together young specialists (doctoral students and early-career researchers) in history of art, cultural and political history and visual studies around this complex, rich and little-studied topic.

    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.

    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.

    Literatura, locura y malestar

    Revista Internacional de Estudios Literarios "Impossibilia"

    El propósito del monográfico consiste en el estudio de las relaciones entre literatura, locura y malestar en las producciones literarias contemporáneas y su recepción en los discursos teóricos y críticos recientes. El nexo entre locura y literatura es uno de los ejes presentes en la cultura: escritoras/es diversas/os han configurado su vínculo con el lenguaje desde el límite que les sitúa más allá de cierta normalización. En los últimos años, sin embargo, pareciera que el imaginario de la locura se hubiera desplazado de manera progresiva hacia una suerte de literatura o poética del malestar donde, de modo transversal, se convoca la medicamentalización generalizada de la población, la expansión de diagnósticos de trastornos afectivos o ansiosos, y, en suma, se hiciera oír la voz de una subjetividad doliente a la que tradicionalmente le estaba vedada la palabra.

    Undergound Atmospheres. Renewing the debate

    This special issue of Ambiances aims to highlight shared topics and possible bridges between actors who usually operate on different scales. We encourage reflections questioning the stakes and methods of the construction of inhabited space in its verticality by reintroducing the question of the underground, not as a soffit but as a living and evolving interface. The issue invites researchers, practitioners of the operational world and designers from different fields, who will share their work on the questions of undergrounds and ambiances – built, experienced and lived by humans – by highlighting case studies, in-situexperiences and new methodological tools. This call is organised around three, non-exclusive thematic lines open for articles from urban studies, architecture, engineering, humanities and social sciences.

    The Discourse of “Rumor” in the Digital Age

    Rumor is a phenomenon that manifests itself in its destructive aspect. Even its dated appearance in the very first years of the twentieth century does not seem to be enough to make an “epistemological break”, as Bachelard said, “The rumor continues to be a phenomenon more believed than known in discourses” To this discursive form of rumor, its dissemination added as another dimension, because the term in question had an oral connotation, setting aside the iconic and scriptural mediation. However, we are accepting, for some time now, that the discourse of rumor could adapt to other linguistic media categories such as writings, images, caricature, especially with the advent of the Internet.

    The Politics of Food in the United States

    ”Politique Américaine“ Journal

    This issue of Politique américaine seeks to address these interactions and to analyze the politics of food in grassroots social movements. Beyond the legitimate issues linked with public health and public policies, food-based social movements often advocate alternative ways of living together and provide a new perspective on civil society that is built outside the mainstream. Food is sustenance, but it is also a locus of socialization, sociability and education (Flammang), where issues of gender (Counihan), race (Witt, Opie) and class (Finn), are played out.

    From Transcribing Orality to Oral Practices of Writing

    Rural and Popular Cultures in the Digital Era

    The special issue to appear in 2022 aims to include texts that propose an investigation of the complex relationship between the written and the oral in the production of meaning that defines “traditions,” community and group relations, in different contexts of change (post-communism, post-colonialism, migration, the use of new hypermedia, storytelling etc.); texts that approaches the new ways orality is found in contemporary societies; but also texts that, responding to the call of ethnologist M. Mesnil, open avenues for methodological discussions in ethnological research regarding the phenomenon of orality in contemporary societies, dominated by history and written texts.

    The Moral And Global Geographies Of Spiritualties: Between Globalization And Glocalization

    Session de la conférence « Religion in Global/Local Perspective: Diffusion, Migration, Transformation », ISSR/SISR 2021

    Cette session se donne pour but d’examiner les tensions existant entre l’universalisation et la déterritorialisation (physique et symbolique) d’un côté, de particularisation et de territorialité (géographique et culturelle) d’un autre, des pratiques englobées sous la catégorie de « spiritualité » (pratiques symboliques et signifiantes mais non religieuses). Autant que les religions institutionnalisées et les NMR, les spiritualités s’étendent à échelle mondiale, via des processus de diffusion et jusqu’à un certain point, des mouvements migratoires.

    Small Cities and Health (from the Middle Ages to the Contemporary Era

    Healthcare, sanitary institutions and urban hygiene policies

    If the present indelibly influences the historiography produced in each period, the current health crisis further conditions – regarding the choice of the theme and the circumstances of its realization – the next meeting of the Small Cities in Time Network, to take place in the spring 2021. The goal of this Meeting will be to evaluate how and to what degree societies and authorities (both central and local), managed or failed to promote, in small cities: (i) the concern for collective health, through the recruitment of medical personnel; (ii) the foundation or continued investment in hospital establishments and assistance institutions; (iii) hygiene or protection regulations against epidemics.

    Perspectives on Religious Minorities in Contemporary Latin America and the Caribbean

    This session aims to enrich and open new avenues of reflection on religious minorities in Latin America and the Caribbean and on the development of a national memory and culture. We are particularly interested in research based on empirical surveys (work on archives, ethnographies, analysis of statistical data, interviews) that seek to understand the links between the nation, national identity and minority religions, explore the relationship between majority religion and religious minorities (dialogues, conflicts, borrowings, etc.) or report on concrete aspects of the presence of these religious minorities in Latin American and Caribbean countries (rituals, practices, relationship to politics, etc.)

    Populism: Theoretical Confusion, Contexts of proliferation and Comparative Experiences

    Although most researchers unanimously agreed on the modernity of populism, this should in no way discourage us from further examining the implications of this phenomenon and its origins in ancient history. The search for the historical roots of populism, that some relate to early times, is only an attempt to establish its origin. However, the subsequent transformations of populism in meaning and practice have made it difficult to discern its limits. Apparently, this critical approach seems to be inaccessible due to many considerations, including the transformations of populism in terms of concept and practice to the point of almost losing its first forms.  According to this approach, it is more likely that real beginnings of populism coincided with the emergence of modern democracy showing signs of deficiency.
