    Towards a political ecology of ambiances/atmospheres

    American Association of Geographers meeting, Washington, DC

    This session aims at questioning the possibility of reconciling descriptive approaches of mundane social life (attentive to its sensitive, emotional and atmospheric/ambient dimension), with critical approaches? In other words, how can the sensory, affective, atmospheric research convey issues of social and political criticism?

    Perspectives historiques sur les prisons, les personnes incarcérées et les archives des prisons

    La constitution de la prison comme institution d'incarcération de masse a longtemps attiré l'intérêt des chercheurs. La nature exceptionnellement détaillée de la plupart des archives carcérales explique en partie cet attrait. Des sources similaires sont aisément disponibles dans les sociétés européennes et leurs colonies, ce qui permet de rassembler une grande quantité d'informations personnelles sur les individus incarcérés. L'analyse détaillée de ces données, débute dès les années 1970; elle est le fait autant des criminologues que des spécialistes de l'histoire sociale et économique, des démographes et d'autres chercheurs en sciences sociales. La puissance croissante des logiciels et du matériel informatique ainsi que l’accumulation de très grandes quantités de données sur les prisons, dont une partie est jumelée à d’autres sources, offrent aux chercheurs de larges perspectives, mais constituent aussi un défi. Cet atelier sera l'occasion d'approfondir ces questions portant sur l'exploitation des archives de la justice pénale. Il permettra de réunir des chercheurs de différentes disciplines et différents pays pour confronter leurs sources et leurs méthodes (classement, analyse, etc.) et pour réévaluer les paradigmes de la recherche.

    Misperformance: staging law and justice in the African diaspora

    Numéro spécial de la revue « CALLALOO »

    Callaloo invites papers for a special issue on “Misperformance: Staging Law and Justice in the African Diaspora” guest edited by Jason Allen-Paisant (University of Leeds, United Kingdom). This special issue of Callaloo wishes to consider forms of performance that engage the legal apparatuses of colonialism as a site for critical thought and intervention in the political present. We wish to harness the enabling potential of the concept of “failing yet performing acts” for providing new understandings of performative interventions that confront histories of racial violence and imperial crimes despite disavowal, lack of official recognition, and absence of memorialization.

    Rejuvenating politics? Student politics and the history of youth’s political selves in South Asia

    UW Madison conference (October 2018)

    By drawing attention to the historical formation of both master narratives and counter claims developed by educated youth in the postcolonial period, the panel explores the relevance of campus spaces in the fashioning of political selves. After partition, many scholars regretted that students’ ‘movement’ had given way to sporadic, dispersed ‘agitations’, focused primarily on campus issues. Instead of dismissing group-based demands as ‘parochial’, or looking at students’ dispersion as a problem, this panel proposes to explore the myriad ways in which student politics supported, challenged or re-interpreted mainstream understandings of South Asian societies.

    Peinture ancienne et humanités numériques

    Lorsqu'en 1921 fut publié par A. Reinach le Recueil des textes Grecs et latins relatifs à la peinture ancienne (Recueil Milliet), il s'agissait de rendre accessible à un public le plus large possible ces textes traitant de peinture et d'esthétique. Depuis deux années maintenant, une équipe réunie auprès de la Perseus Digital Library et du Perseids Project (Tufts University) s'efforce de redonner une nouvelle vie au Recueil Milliet (outil indispensable aux historiens de l'art antique) en le transposant dans un format numérique. En regard des travaux effectués, ce colloque vise à interroger les méthodes de travail qui allient humanités numériques et recherche scientifique, en particulier en histoire de l'art de l'antiquité. Mais aussi à mettre en avant les liens entre sources écrites et découvertes archéologiques les plus récentes.

    Biocosmos - Our sense of place, our sense of life in the universe

    Planet scientists and exoplanet astronomers are re-shaping our understanding of the universe, presenting a fascinating cosmos filled with places and destinations, not an empty void. At the same time, Earth physicists and biologists design models of self-sustainable ecosystems such as Biosphere 2 and the Mars/Lunar Greenhouse, with the goal of engineering bio-regenerative mini-worlds that can function on their own. As these scientific revolutions unfold, with distant spaces and global life systems as objects of “field work”, what counts as the “human environment”? How do we, as individuals and societies, relate to spaces, things, and processes we do not or cannot experience directly and which we see as “extreme” or “beyond” human?

    International Family Migration and Normative Languages

    International Sociological Association, Congress 2018. Panel Research Committee 25, Language and Society

    Family reunification, mixed marriages and other forms of international family migration are highly politicized topics depicted as threats for national identity. In some countries, the conditions to access the family rights have been reformed complicating the processes of applications for visa, residence permit and nationality. In other countries, migrant and binational families encounter administrative and religious constraints to formalise their unions, to pass on nationality and rights to the children or simply to be socially accepted. This session explores the language employed to define family migration ‒ and the social-administrative processes that go with ‒ by politicians, media, bureaucrats, civil society actors and by family members too. The session welcomes papers from a broad empirical perspectives that explore the changing (or the persistence) of normative languages related to family migration over time.

    The Presence of Women Editors in the Press Industry (1850-1950)

    This panel is part of the 49th annual Northeast modern language association (NeMLA) convention which will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from the 12th until the 15th of April 2018. We wish to examine the active participation of women in the public dialogue through the prism of their periodical publications. By looking into their practices of textual transfer, their editorial strategies and the transnational networks that they established, this panel sheds light on the content, structure, and functions of the periodical press in the long 19th century. Scholars are encouraged to explore the ways in which women’s journals shaped socio-cultural transitions by conducting comparative research across nations, cultures, and historical periods.

    L’histoire du maintien de la paix : nouvelles perspectives

    Les opérations de maintien de la paix canadiennes, mais aussi mondiales, ont connu une grande évolution depuis 1956. Les historiens, se basant sur les documents maintenant disponibles,  se penchent sur l’histoire des opérations et proposent de nouvelles perspectives et analyses concernant ses origines, sa chronologie, ses succès et ses échecs. Si l’expression « maintien de la paix » est contestée aujourd’hui, son histoire nous amène à réfléchir sur l’apport du maintien de la paix dans l’histoire militaire et politique du Canada, comme dans celle des autres pays participants ou ayant été l’objet d’opérations de cette nature sur son territoire.

    Maritime Ivories in Western Europe, 900-1500

    Dans l'histoire de la sculpture sur ivoire, les mammifères marins ont souvent été éclipsés par l'éléphant, vu comme un ivoire plus noble dont le morse ou la baleine ne seraient que des succédanés. Mais cette vision historiographique n'est pas sans faiblesses. Non seulement la chasse au morse joua un rôle significatif dans l'expansion européenne vers l'Ouest, mais le commerce de ces ivoires s'étendit jusqu'au monde islamique voire à l'Extrême-Orient. Cette session du 52e International Congress on Medieval Studies, sponsorisée par le National Museum of Scotland, vise à étudier les ivoires maritimes sous tous leurs aspects, collecte du matériau brut, commerce, ateliers et valeur symbolique.

    Utopia in a Post-secular Society: at the Cross-sections of Literature and Philosophy

    48th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

    An element that seems to characterize the 20th century reflection on utopia is its secular nature. Through a re-thinking of the place and roles of religion in society, the post-secular turn we are witnessing in recent theory (Habermas, Taylor, Asad, Mahmood) may provide a critical point of departure for questioning this specific aspect of utopian tradition. In this panel, we invite papers that reflect on the relationship between utopia and religion, as it is worked out in 20th century literature and philosophy: How does the place of the utopian tradition change in the context of the “return of the religion” in a post-secular society?

    As specific material and cultural artefacts, foreign-language periodicals call for a multifaceted approach in order to unravel the intricate connections between text and context, forms and meanings, language and message, as well as the complex interactions between editors, printers, authors and readers. With this in mind, of particular interest for us in the Fourth International Conference of the Transfopress network if the global circulation of media culture at a time when print communication was becoming a mass phenomenon in the 19th and 20th century.
