    « En Pologne, c'est-à-dire nulle part ». La Pologne et les Polonais dans la culture européenne à l'époque des partages (1795-1918)

    Revue de la Société Européenne de Littérature Comparée

    À l’occasion du centenaire du recouvrement de l’indépendance de la Pologne et du rétablissement des contacts diplomatiques franco-polonais, une journée d’étude tenue à Sorbonne Université a proposé de revenir sur la situation de l’émigration polonaise de la fin du XVIIIe au début du XXe siècle pour réfléchir à ce moment crucial pendant lequel l’un des grands pays d’Europe a cessé d’exister et aux implications esthétiques de ce bouleversement géo-politique. En vue de la publication d’un volume, est lancé un appel à de nouvelles contributions pour compléter celles déjà rassemblées, dans une perspective comparatiste et transdisciplinaire, en accueillant des articles des champs des sciences humaines et sociales, de la musicologie, de l’histoire des sciences, des arts plastiques.

    Understanding the War in the Ukraine

    CFP Forum Ukraine - The American University of Paris

    The George and Irina Schaeffer Center for the Study of Genocide, Human Rights, and Conflict Prevention, and the American University of Paris hope to provide a virtual forum on May 9-10, 2022, for scholars from multiple disciplines and humanitarian activists to process the causes and consequences of the war in the Ukraine. Because of the urgency and ongoing nature of the conflict, we are not expecting polished academic presentations but short (10-15 minutes) thought pieces that help to elucidate various aspects and interpretations of the war. A primary aim is to give Ukrainian and Russian scholars the opportunity to express themselves and their point of view.

    Histoire, archives et mémoires des dissidents et exilés de l’URSS et de l’Europe socialiste (1945-1991)

    Lauréat de l’appel à projet CollEx Persée 2020, le projet DISSINVENT se propose, pour la première fois, d’inventorier, rendre visibles nationalement et internationalement et valoriser ces importantes collections produites par les dissidences « de l’Est » en exil en France, entre 1945 et 1991. Ces fonds méconnus sont à recenser et à mieux décrire dans toute leur diversité, en répondant aux défis transversaux du numérique. Il s’agit dans le même temps de développer une réflexion sur des collections à forte particularité, tant par leur provenance que par la diversité et la fragilité du corpus documentaire et par leur histoire heurtée, politiquement et émotionnellement. L’appel s’adresse aux chercheurs et chercheuses dans une perspective interdisciplinaire, aux professionnels de la documentation et aux témoins et acteurs d’une période d’histoire contemporaine qui s’éloigne, contribuant ainsi au dialogue développé par les projets CollEx Persée.

    Religious Actors advocating Human Rights in the Helsinki process - Part II

    New research perspectives on the non-state actors in view of the 50th anniversary of the Helsinki Final Act (1975–2025)

    The Conference for Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) born of the Helsinki Agreements (1973-75) is often described as one of the main diplomatic achievements of the détente era, and a crucial milestone towards ending the Cold War. Yet not only diplomats played a part in the process. Non-state actors and NGOs also did their share by lobbying CSCE staff and conference attendees for Human Rights and Religious Freedom violations behind the Iron Curtain or they started political discussion processes in the public sphere of their respective countries. Drawing on the most recent research on this topic, this online workshop aims at further exploring human rights activists involved in the Helsinki process, at the interface between the Dissent and the Western public, and between state and other private networks.

    Les lieux du politique en Europe centrale, orientale et balkanique, 1790-1990

    Les lieux institutionnels

    Longtemps considérée comme périphérique, l’Europe centrale, orientale et balkanique, – espace hétérogène possédant néanmoins certaines dynamiques propres bien identifiables – a progressivement retrouvé sa place dans une historiographie dynamique et renouvelée grâce aux apports de l’histoire transnationale, globale ou connectée. Le premier volet de ce futur rendez-vous pluriannuel intitulé « Les lieux du politique en Europe centrale, orientale et balkanique, 1790-1990 » sera consacré aux lieux institutionnels.

    Borders and crossings: a transdisciplinary conference on travel writing

    The 2022 Borders and Crossings conference will take part in a unique context: that of a post-Soviet and Nordic country situated in a European geographical, economic and political context. Estonia’s history is marked by successive occupations, which could arguably be considered as a form of travel from the point of view of the occupiers. These occupations have affected travel to and from this area, and generated specific mobility, such as deportation and diaspora. This context brings our attention to restricted travels and the forms of control at work when it comes to travel. Additionally, this conference acknowledges the emergency of the ecological crisis and the pressure that travelling can put on the Earth system.

    Assist and Unify? Nation Building and Welfare in the Upper Adriatic and Eastern Baltic Sea Region in the 20th Century

    Monographic issue of «Qualestoria. Rivista di storia contemporanea»

    Questioning the primacy of the nation-state, a special issue of Qualestoria to be published in December 2022 aims to analyze how different welfare practices have represented a tool of nation-building in territories contested by various national groups or states. To what extent have different political contexts affected the use of welfare for nation-building purposes? What role have welfare practices played in strengthening the position of the titular nation or in attempting to integrate/assimilate minorities? What outcomes have “bottom-up” initiatives propelled? The special issue will try answer these questions with a focus on the eastern Baltic Sea region and the Upper Adriatic. Contributions related to other east central European areas will also be considered.

    In search of perceived time

    Temporalities in the Russian Empire, the USSR and the world

    Cette journée d’étude propose de se saisir de la notion de « temps perçu » qui nous semble capable de susciter des réflexions nouvelles tant sur la matérialité du temps que sur les représentations auxquelles elle donne lieu, au-delà du paradigme traditionnel des ruptures et continuités. En faisant le choix du terme de temporalités plutôt que celui du temps (Dubar, 2014) pour se concentrer volontairement sur les expériences multiples du temps présent et leurs perceptions conscientes, son enjeu sera d’insister sur le temps comme construction sociale mais aussi de mettre l’accent sur les manières multiples dont il est perçu et vécu dans des périodes de profondes mutations.

    Sites of encounter

    The circulation of knowledge in the Baltic Sea, from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century

    La notion de lieu a été choisie pour cette journée d’étude pour sa capacité à questionner différemment et pertinemment l’espace baltique, tout comme le fit Pierre Nora pour la mémoire. En effet, qu’elles soient aléatoires, récurrentes ou programmées, les rencontres, humaines, matérielles ou intellectuelles, sont la conséquence de mobilités et d’interactions dans un espace donné. Là où la périodisation, nécessaire, voire indispensable aux historiens a pu parfois diminuer l’importance de l’espace dans lequel se produisent les actions étudiées, ces lieux de rencontres fournissent le cadre d’un moment en rupture. Le lieu doit être ainsi l’armature pour de nouvelles constructions qui « peuvent aider à formuler certaines réponses, même si elles ne les fournissent pas totalement ».

    Methodologies of Working in Cold War Archives

    Facts, Values and Archival Ecologies

    The workshop aims to contribute to the discussion on knowledge practices in times of reflexive disbelief by addressing the role of scholars with regards to different truth regimes. Michel Foucault once remarked that the analysis of “truth” should go beyond the evaluation of isolated statements: truth regimes are power systems which produce and sustain certain truths in a circular way, through political and economic institutions. William Davies of “The Guardian” traced back the current popular skepticism vis-à-vis professional expertise to a paradigm shift in truth regimes: the immediacy of self-revelatory data has been replacing, through a multitude of revelations, leaks and informational wars dating as far back as the Cold War, the interpretative work by experts and journalists

    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.

    The Creation and Re-creation of National Armies in Post-Soviet and Post-Communist Countries

    Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, 15 post-Soviet Armies have emerged, sometimes built from scratch. During this time, armies of post-communist countries[1] have undergone several major transformations. For this future issue, we have chosen to study the creation and evolution of these armies primarily through the lens of social and cultural history, and the political aspects of their transition since 1991. The process of creating post-Soviet and post-communist armies can be analyzed in different perspectives and at different levels. The issue will focus on the experience of post-Soviet states and post-communist countries with an in-depth examination of the kinds of individuals who put on the uniform, combining the approaches of sociologists, historians, political scientists, ethnologists and anthropologists from a comparative perspective.

    Death and Migration: Perspectives from the Post-Soviet Space

    This dossier of Revue européenne des migrations internationales proposes to take up a research theme that has undergone a strong renewal of interest in recent years, that of death and migration. This dossier aims to shed light on an area which has been little studied from this angle (the post-Soviet space) and to develop an approach which focuses on the management of bodies 'dead in the distance' (deaths in migration, deaths due to migration). This dossier also focuses on the effects of a certain proximity to death on the practices of foresight and mutual aid (when they exist) in the migratory context, as well as their impacts on migration as a whole. Two thematic axes will guide the contributions: the first concerns the practical modalities of the management of dead bodies abroad; the second concerns mitigating and solidarity practices in relation to the proximity of death in migration.

    Logics, stakes and limits of cultural heritage transmission in Eurasia

    The thematic issue is about cultural heritage and patrimonialization. It aims at comparing the varying notions of “tradition” and “safeguarding of culture” within an empirical approach.We focus on conflicts about the creation of culture and how these globalised and specific contexts shape a changing self-perception of “ethnic identity” in Northern Asia, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.The articles may be on local as well as global expressions of cultural heritage: poetical genre, engraving or wood carving, architecture, ethno-parks or ecomuseums, cultural tourism, opposition to projects of valorization, etc. Analysis may also focus on the role of actors involved in local projects, on historical contexts or on international fashions.

    Founding, selecting, defending: how to make democracy survive (1918-1960)?

    Ce colloque international s’inscrit dans le projet de formation-recherche « Quelle démocratie ? La réflexion sur la crise, la modernisation et les limites de la démocratie en Allemagne, en France, en Angleterre et en Europe centrale entre 1919 et 1939 ». Ce projet pluridisciplinaire propose de revenir sur les réflexions autour de la démocratie de l’entre-deux-guerres en s’intéressant particulièrement aux discours critiques et aux projets de réformes issus du camp démocratique au sens large. Sa démarche consiste à insérer ces discours dans leurs contextes historique, idéologique et socio-culturel, tout en s’intéressant également à leur impact sur la vie politique et sociale de l’époque. Dans la logique de ce projet, ce colloque portera sur la question de l’enracinement démocratique, c’est-à-dire sur la question des moyens à mettre en œuvre pour faire survivre une démocratie en milieu (potentiellement) hostile.
