    Fascism's World War

    Italian Military Occupations in Europe, 1940-1943

    Between 1939 and 1943, the Italian armed forces occupied Albania and portions of France, Greece and Yugoslavia. In September 1943 when Italy signed an armistice with the Allies, these territories were quickly occupied by Germany, ending Italian dreams of a European spazio vitale. Although these military occupations ended in failure for Italy, they represent an important aspect of the history of Fascism, military occupations, and the Second World War. This special issue aims to contribute to the historiography of Italian military occupations in Europe, particularly those which present original research.

    Living underground as a strategy for political struggle. Modes, discourses and social dynamics from the 19th century until today

    Cette journée d'études doctorale internationale a pour objectif de questionner la clandestinité en tant que catégorie d'analyse : au-delà de la dissimulation qui caractérise la plupart des actes illégaux ou transgressifs, quelles sont les caractéristiques des luttes politiques qui choisissent de s'organiser dans une illégalité prolongée ? Quels parallèles peut-on tracer, quelles oppositions et quelles évolutions depuis le XIXe siècle ? La variété des situations interroge la valeur heuristique du concept lui-même.

    Ebullient Africa: Conflict, Modernity, Religion

    IV ASAI Conference

    Depuis la guerre froide le continent africain est le théâtre d’une instabilité politique accrue. Malgré le regain démocratique qui émerge au début des années 1990, des pratiques contestataires, plus ou moins unanimes, comme le renversement du pouvoir en place (Printemps arabe, Burkina‐Faso…), les soulèvements populaires face à la révision de la Constitution (République Démocratique du Congo), la contestation des élections (Burundi) questionnent aujourd’hui la viabilité du régime démocratique en Afrique. Si la notion d’instabilité politique renvoie à la propension d’effondrement gouvernemental, celle de conflit est déjà une conséquence de cette action. L’insécurité accompagne désormais la transition démocratique et les conflits se multiplient.

    Research, Politics, Ethic and Militancy in the Human and Social Sciences

    This panel seeks to provide a reflection on a multidisciplinary basis about the ethical implications on research in humanities and social science related to the objects of study. These objects potentially induce the researcher to "adopt" (even indirectly) one or more of the parts/reasons involved.

    At War with Words

    Letters, diaries and memoirs of soldiers, women and children in the First World War

    What were the feelings, the perceptions and the mental attitudes of soldiers and civilians, of women and children, during the war? What strategies of psychological resistance did they employ in response to such destabilising experience? It is possible to answer these questions by consulting the wide variety of writings produced by the combatants and by the civilian population "mobilised" during the conflict. These letters, diaries, and memoirs – some still hidden in old drawers, though many collected in 'folk writing' archives – are also of considerable narrative and historical interest, due to their linguistic peculiarities, and their efficacy as depth-probes and guides into the war. This conference will address the methodological debates that are still ongoing, while presenting texts of particular significance, as well as the results of European research in historical and linguistic fields.
