    Anachronisms

    Perspective, no. 2025-2

    Long considered a “mortal sin” of historical sciences, anachronism is nevertheless part of current practices in art history, often unconsciously, through the use of categories and notions forged in the 19th century in Europe. At the same time, other practices of anachronism have emerged over the past thirty years, where it is used as a method which allows new questions, new objects, new stories to emerge. Perspective aims to examine these unintentional or asserted practices of anachronism in art history.

    Resonance: The Creative Thrust of “Deep Zouk”

    Si le premier colloque international sur le Zouk, en 2019, a traité des trajectoires, des imaginaires et perspectives suivant le concept lacanien d’« hainamoration », ce deuxième colloque s’articule autour du concept chamoisélien de « résonance » pour tenter d'expliciter le processus de création de la musique zouk depuis ses fonts baptismaux. Qu'est-ce qui conditionne l’imaginaire créatif de nos démiurges du zouk et leur permet d’appréhender le monde ? Ce questionnement se justifie par le fait que beaucoup de musiciens et artistes-chanteurs-interprètes de nos régions, s’ils suivent des formations musicales conventionnelles, il n’en demeure pas moins que pour créer dans la Caraïbe, leurs lignes créatrices s'ancrent authentiquement dans le principe de la « résonance » (conte-danse-rythme), les sources vives des énergies cosmiques, de la vibration du tambour. Ce colloque permettra d’entrer dans les arcanes de la création, de pister et de suivre la trace de certains artistes rompus à l’exercice pour tenter de définir des traits définitoires de ce processus de création du « Deep zouk ».

    Cicero’s Epistulae ad Brutum between politics, rhetoric and philosophy

    Lecturae Ciceronis 2025

    Consacré au corpus épistolaire Ad Brutum, ce colloque s’inscrit dans la nouvelle série de conférences lancée en 2024 par la Société internationale des amis de Cicéron (SIAC) : les Lecturae Ciceronis. L’objectif de ces Lecturae est de rassembler des chercheuses et des chercheurs non sur un thème cicéronien mais sur une œuvre cicéronienne pour en proposer la lecture la plus approfondie possible, en croisant des approches et des méthodes diverses : histoire du texte, étude des sources, étude du contexte, lecture analytique au plus près du texte, analyses lexicales ou synthèses théoriques. L’enjeu premier des Lecturae est d’offrir pour l’œuvre considérée à la fois un état de l’art et des pistes permettant une approche renouvelée, dégagée des a priori et redonnant aux textes ses différents niveaux de sens.

    What Matters in Contemporary Anglophone Cultures

    “What Matters” is an invitation to rethink the weight of habits, established structures and validated categories. Arguing that someone/something counts goes against economic/budgetary/financial accounting, which is typically the work of a dominant power that keeps precise accounts, compiling or capitalising, trying to contain or control. What matters” is an invitation to give an account of what does not seem to count, what is unthought of or invisible. What matters” is a response to what is challenging research, and a direct appeal to its agency to redefine the common space and what would be a (co-)habitable world. It invites us to grasp how research can make people act and react, and provoke awakening. We are looking for papers in linguistic, literary, dramatic, historical, sociological, political, film and serial studies and, more broadly, cultural studies.

    Backlash politics and sustainable development in Latin America

    Special issue of the “Revue internationale des études du développement”

    This special issue of the Revue internationale des études du développement  aims to bring together articles dealing with the politics of backlash in sustainable development in Latin America. The terms “backlash” and “backlash politics” are essential elements of the contemporary political landscape. They can be used in various contexts to refer to conservative mobilization, to movements in favor of local autonomy, to radical right populism, etc. We seek to stimulate in-depth reflection on conservative mobilization and the varied responses it has elicited in Latin America, across different political areas and at different scales. We call for innovative contributions and invite authors to focus on three lines of inquiry centered on ideas, institutions, and interests: 1/ Conservative agendas: reconfigurations and contestations of SD discourses and frameworks; 2/ Institutionalizing the backlash: changes in norms and politics; 3/ The strategies and interests of backlash actors.

    Secularization of religious assets in Enlightenment Europe: urban development, architecture, and art works

    The suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1773 marks the last step of the Order’s progressive dissolution initiated fifteen years earlier, in Europe and in its colonies. This act of suppression was the culmination of a broader secularisation movement concerning religious congregations across Europe, from the 1760s to the French Revolution. Whether driven by reformatory or by economic interests, all acts of suppression and secularisation had the same consequences: a large number of movable assets and real property, estates and art works were either reallocated to other religious congregations or put on sale, when not confiscated altogether. Several studies have already investigated the dispersal of abolished congregations’ assets in different parts of Enlightened Europe, but a broader overview is yet to be drawn.

    Religions, Individuals, and Communities in the Americas

    Revue interdisciplinaire de travaux sur les Amériques (RITA) n°18

    As recurring objects of analysis running the whole gamut of humanities and social sciences, the ties between religions, communities, and the individuals within them have constantly been used to gauge tensions within social structures. All the more so on the American continent, where the destructive spiral of colonization set off waves of migration, and the pluralism within the communities and religions from the Northwest Territories to Tierra del Fuego delineates both their differences and similarities. Is there such a thing as specifically American structures when it comes to religions and communities? That is one of the questions posed by the present 18th issue of RITA.

    Small Forms in Circulation

    Infrastructures, Practices, Publics

    Small textual and material forms seem particularly adept at circulating within and between different publics. This conference investigates how the movement of brief, compressed, and otherwise small forms ranging from early modern pamphlets to Instagram stories shape the development of diverse publics, as well as the interplay between them. We propose to explore the relationship between small forms and publics through three related strands of inquiry: how infrastructures affect the circulation of small forms, how practices including remediation enable their circulation, and how the circulation of small forms shapes the formation, operation, and dissolution of public life.

    Lapidariums. Precious sources for the history of a monument and its sculpted decoration

    "In Situ" Journal n°53 – 2025

    The French term ‘dépôt lapidaire’, a lapidary depot, rendered here as a lapidarium, is understood to mean collections of archaeological or architectural fragments and pieces of sculpture, assembled so as to maintain an organic link with the monument or the site they come from. The time seems to be ripe, then, as the topic as a whole takes on numerous forms, to draw up a general, if provisional analysis of the situation. It seems useful to think about how best to share information coming from different sectors (historic monuments, archaeology, museums and parks and gardens). New lines of action can perhaps be sketched out for a new phase for these very special cultural properties, located at the frontiers between the movable and immovable heritage.

    When the archaeological object is a historical subject

    Perception, function and reception of artefacts

    In the wake of the material turn and following the example of the television programme Faire l'histoire presented by Patrick Boucheron on Arte, the aim of this event is to reflect on the definition, role and understanding of artefacts. Encompassing a wide historical period and geographical area, our aim is to examine both the history of the archaeological object itself and the archaeological object in history. This interdisciplinary approach will allow us to compare points of view on a subject at the heart of current issues.

    Music and right-wing movements

    “Transposition. Music and social sciences” n°13 (2025)

    The issue 13 of Transposition aims to provide an overview of the relationships between music and right-wing political movements in the contemporary world. If music is both an aesthetic and a social phenomenon that can contribute to our understanding of the world, is there a specifically musical way of thinking about and defining the political category of the right? With a view to questioning the contribution of music to the evolution of right-wing ways of thinking and acting, and vice versa, proposals may focus as much on actors as on institutions, as well as on the aesthetic scope of artistic productions.

    Circus arts without borders

    For a world history of the circus from Antiquity to the present day

    The aim of this conference is to decompartmentalise these historiographies by inviting researchers in history and, more broadly, in the arts and the social sciences (performing arts, art history, sociology, anthropology, etc.), as well as those involved in the artistic and cultural world, to combine their approaches. This conference sees itself as a first step towards a world history of the circus, while being aware of the limits of such an undertaking. The historiography of the circus is recent, and many aspects remain unexplored. There is a lack of works that build bridges between different national histories. Moreover, some of them have not yet been written. The history of the circus in certain regions of the world and at certain periods remains largely unknown. Consequently, papers taking a local approach may be proposed if they draw attention to these areas where the history of the circus has yet to be written. However, the emphasis will be on comparative or connected, global or even worldwide approaches. The aim will be to highlight intercultural dynamics rather than local particularities.

    Nights in the South

    First interdisciplinary approach to World Nights September

    The interdisciplinary colloquium on “Nights of the South” will provide an opportunity for researchers from different disciplines, artists, association leaders, practitioners and elected officials from many countries to take stock of this work on and in the Global South. The aim will be to better understand the evolution of urban and rural nightlife and the ways of living and inhabiting nights at different scales according to cultures, countries, territories, cities; to identify evolutions, tensions, inequalities of access, but also strategies for the development or protection of nights carried out by different actors; and to reflect upon the preferred forms of governance of the night.

    The World of Silk Between France and Italy, 16th-19th Century

    This workshop aims to consider Franco-Italian relations concerning silk from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century by fostering dialogue between research that has hitherto been separated by historiographical tradition, particularly combining history and art history. This interdisciplinary approach is all the more essential as it seeks to scrutinize through the same set of inquiries the entire silk production chain (from mulberry cultivation to fabric consumption, including thread manufacturing and preparation, pattern creation, and weaving). By revealing the importance of interdependencies among the various stages of the production and consumption process and the different actors within this industry, this approach leads to new considerations of the connections between the social worlds and the territories that silk interlinked.

    Technology, culture and society: rethinking the relationship with oneself and the collective in a digital environment

    Les énoncés identitaires ne cessent d’occuper une place importante dans le champ des études linguistiques dans la mesure où ils constituent, d’une part, le lieu privilégié où jaillissent les représentations collectives, et ils remplissent des fonctions sociales et culturelles diverses dans la vie quotidienne, d’autre part. L’objectif pivot de notre recherche consiste, donc, à détecter le volet culturel et identitaire dans une communication numérique.
