    From Liège to Strasbourg. New Research on the German-French Border Region During the High and Late Middle Ages (11th–16th Century)

    In the High and Late Middle Ages, the border region between the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire was a dynamic space not only in terms of territorial politics, but also in economic, religious, social and cultural terms, which always requires cross-border work in historical research. Despite this elementary precondition, there is currently a lack of cross-national and cross-language exchange, especially for young academics. In order to meet this need, we would like to invite MA graduates and young researchers to present their current research projects to a professional audience and to discuss them within the setting of a young researchers’ conference.

    Dynamics of social protection for children in Africa

    Child social protection refers to a set of measures aimed at reducing poverty among this social category, managing its individual risks and promoting its equitable and sustainable growth. Beyond ideological visions and co-representations about Childhood, the realities offered by the Africain socioeconomic environment make it possible to report a more concrete anthropological point of view on the meaning and value of children’s lived experiences. These various realities thus allow us to identify some avenues allowing us to better understand the process by which most children are subjected to trafficking in order to better define the mechanisms leading to their social protection.

    Did you say “authentic”?

    6th International Doctoral Days of “Transitions” (ULiège)

    On the 5th and 6th of May, 2022, the sixth edition of the Research Unit Transitions (Research Department on the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period)’s international Doctoral Days will be held at the University of Liège. Organised in partnership with the Centre d’études supérieures de civilisation médiévale (CESCM) of the University of Poitiers, these days will be structured around the theme of authenticity. The notion of authenticity is by its very nature polysemous and complex to define. The aim of these Doctoral Days is to examine authenticity in its various meanings and according to the various methodological approaches pertaining to different fields of research. The presentations will be oriented according to two distinct, but complementary axes: “The object to the test of time” and “Authenticity, a guarantee of truth?”.

    Welcoming Migrants in the City : Interrogating Urban Policy and Civic Action

    This symposium proposes to explore the underlying processes in the construction of welcoming initiatives towards migrants in urban areas, to question the theoretical frameworks that support them, including the duty of hospitality in humanitarian action, the offer of “sanctuary” by local authorities in conflict with the State, and the cosmopolitan and progressive image of the “welcoming city”. The conference aims to continue these lines of analysis in an international perspective, by bringing together scholars from Europe, the Americas, Africa, and beyond, in order to interrogate the urban reception of migrants from perspectives that are complementary and attentive to specific environments, in terms of the characteristics of migration dynamics and the existing forms of action. Approaches from anthropology, sociology, geography, political science, law, and urban studies are welcome.

    “Gelan”. Laughing, making laugh, theorizing laughter

    Comicality and playfulness between words, concepts, and practices in ancient texts

    The “funny”, “humorous”, “ironic”, and “playful” dimensions of ancient works have often been the focus of modern scholarship and the subject of several published volumes and articles. Nevertheless, there have been no comprehensive studies that explore both the terms themselves and how to make these useful for the evaluation of ancient literature and art in a way that examines their heuristic value, with the goal of arriving at more objective interpretations. Since defining the comic and the playful remains a fundamental problem, conceptual tools are still needed so as to better identify and appreciate content of this kind in ancient works. The aim of this thematic dossier of Methodos is to refine the tools and methods that would permit such analyses.
