    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.

    Borders, transitions, hybridity: comparative perspectives, from the Balkans to Central Asia

    Doctoral study day of of the Centre d’études turques, ottomanes, balkaniques et centrasiatiques

    Cette journée d'études est destinée à tou·te·s les doctorant·e·s travaillant sur l'ensemble des espaces couverts par les recherches du laboratoire, des Balkans à l'Asie centrale, en passant par les territoires de l'ex-empire ottoman et l'Iran, et ce à toutes les périodes et dans toutes les disciplines. En tant que concept polymorphe, la frontière renvoie autant à l’idée de fermeture et de délimitation qu’à celle de zone de passage et d’espace de rencontre et d’échange. Elle est tout à la fois un objet physiquement inscrit dans l’espace, un élément qui circonscrit les territoires et la propriété ; une construction sociale, une manière de bâtir un rapport à l’altérité ; et un point dans le temps, un événement ou processus qui divise le passé du présent et du futur.

    Televising the socialist body

    Projections of health and welfare on the socialist and post-socialist screen

    Bodies and health on television have not been extensively researched, in particular in the socialist and transition to market-economy contexts.The conference seeks to analyse how television and its evolving formats –contemporary, similar and yet differing in national broadcast contexts– expressed and staged bodies and health from local, regional, national and international perspectives. The conference seeks to better understand the role that TV, as a modern visual mass media, has played in what may be cast as the transition from a national bio-political public health paradigm at the beginning of the twentieth century, to alternative societal forms of the late twentieth century when (supposedly) “better” and “healthier” lives were increasingly shaped by market forces.

    The exit from war in Danubian Europe: a new era? (1918-1924)

    Using the Hungarian case as a springboard, and broadening the perspective to the whole of Danubian Europe, the conference seeks to address the following questions: the new social bonds emerging from the transformation brought about by the Paris Peace Conference; social, intellectual and (or) regional impact of changes, conflicts and international confrontations between 1918 and 1924. The conference aims to rise to the challenge of writing comparative social histories of this historical moment.
