    Conviviality and Sociability in the Long Eighteenth Century: Restoration to Romanticism

    Christoph Heyl (Univ. Duisburg-Essen) and Rémy Duthille (Univ. Bordeaux-Montaigne) are continuing the long tradition of the Landau-Paris Symposia on the Eighteenth Century, welcoming both established scholars of the field and early career researchers. The symposium focuses on the literature and culture of the British Isles of the period, but it is also open to topics relating to the British colonies, France, Germany, and further afield. The conference will include a panel of emerging scholars who are working on their PhD projects or are planning to begin a PhD project in the near future.

    AMAES – Études médiévales anglaises, numéro 100

    On the occasion of its anniversary issue, Études médiévales anglaises invites papers on the measuring of time, as well as on the marginal treatment of time in ritualized celebrations which punctuate daily life, sometimes subverting its usual hierarchies, as in the case of carnival and misrule. Papers can consider material representations of time and its measure, as well as the subtle representation of past, present and future in medieval literature.

    The politics and poetics of down-and-outs

    Rogues and picaros in medieval and renaissance Spain and England

    Within Western literature, the picaresque was quickly perceived as a “historically and geographically delimited tradition” specific to Spain during the Golden Age, a genre apart from the rest, almost without precedent. Going against this common misconception, recent studies have reminded us of the importance of the Apuleian and Lucian origins of this ‘new’ narrative formula. The wily beggar thus seems the prodigal son of the Ancients. Shouldn't we therefore extend the reflection and, at the very least, reconsider the scientific cliché that sees in this character the perfect (dissident) example of the Renaissance hero? Didn't the Middle Ages also contribute to the creation of the cunning rogue?

    Études médiévales anglaises journal, no.100

    The French Journal of Medieval English Studies Études Médiévales Anglaises is seeking submissions for its 100th anniversary issue focusing on the notion of “time”. On the occasion of its anniversary issue, the journal invites papers on the measuring of time, as well as on the marginal treatment of time in ritualized celebrations which punctuate daily life, sometimes subverting its usual hierarchies, as in the case of carnival and misrule. Papers can consider material representations of time and its measure, as well as the subtle representation of past, present and future in medieval literature: romance worlds often conflate several layers of time which coexist in the mind of the reader.

    Emotions and the management of epidemics in cities of modern and contemporary Europe

    Scotland, France, Spain (1500-1900)

    Ce projet souhaite consacrer une étude originale à l’histoire de la santé grâce à des regards croisés sur son évolution en France, en Écosse et en Espagne, entre autres, en ciblant des villes de taille et de statut équivalents telles que Versailles, Paris, Marseille, Édimbourg, Glasgow, Madrid et Séville, qui ont connu un développement démographique et économique fulgurant durant cette période. Les métamorphoses sociales de ces villes ont obligé les gouvernements locaux à s’adapter, dans l’urgence tout d’abord, pour garantir la sécurité, la prospérité et l’hygiène communes. Ce fut pour elles l’occasion d’investir et d’innover pour réduire, quand cela était possible, l’impact des épidémies et y opposer une nouvelle perception de la ville : une cité contrôlée, saine et propice au négoce.

    Censorship and blind spots: the BBC’s silences

    The BBC's reputation for impartiality and independence is one of the cornerstones of its value system, which also underpins its self-declared mission to "inform, educate, and entertain". However, these values have constantly been redefined as several forms of censorship and self-censorship have been applied in the context of conflict with political or economic powers. This means that the role and independence of the BBC as a public service needs to be questioned and the grey areas and silences of the BBC from its creation in 1922 to the beginning of its digital era in 1995 need to be the objects of inquiry.

    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.

    Frontier(s) and Frontier-zone(s) in the English-speaking world

    Call for papers

    It may be argued that any frontier is the expression of what is discontinuous, of the existence of an ‘inside’ and of an ‘outside’, in short, that a frontier is an attempt to keep the ‘other’ at bay, whatever the meaning of the term – a given geographical territory, or a specific political entity, or a different culture, or else all of these put together. These considerations are in tune with the etymological origin of the word ‘frontier’ itself, i.e. anything that helps a group of people ‘develop a united front’. Examples abound, from the so-called ‘natural’ frontier of this or that country to Brexit, to the wall that President Trump has set out to build between his own country and Mexico.

    Territorial fractures, ruptures, discontinuities and borders: issues for planners

    The French-British Study Planning Group / Groupe franco-britannique de recherche en aménagement et urbanisme, has worked for 20 years on the building of networks and intellectual bridges between the communities of planning research and practice on both sides of the Channel. Since 2005 it has been formally constituted as a sub-group of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP). The potential retreat of the current United Kingdom from the European Union presents a new context and it is natural that the group should turn its attention to the territorial impacts which could arise as a result. It is also an occasion to reflect more widely on all forms of territorial discontinuities, ruptures and borders, including those at the national, regional and local scales, and which are of concern to planning research and practice.

    About Seignelay Colbert de Castlehill

    Between Scotland and Rouergue

    Ce colloque étudiera l'étrange figure de Seignelay Colbert de Castlehill, né à Inverness, le 13 août 1735 dans une famille presbytérienne et mort à Londres, évêque anticoncordataire et animateur de la Petite Église le 15 juillet 1811. Vicaire général de Loménie de Brienne à Toulouse, fréquentant les salons parisiens, il fut le guide de l'économiste Adam Smith à Toulouse et dans le Sud-Ouest de Bordeaux à Montpellier de mars 1764 à octobre 1765. Élevé au siège épiscopal de Rodez en 1782, il devient président de l'Assemblée provinciale de Haute-Guyenne. Député de la sénéchaussée de Rodez en 1789, il sera l'un des évêques ralliés au Tiers Etat permettant aux États-généraux de devenir l'Assemblée nationale. Cette trajectoire exceptionnelle a échappée à la prosopographie de la Révolution française comme à l'historiographie écossaise. Le colloque se propose de dresser le portrait que mérite une trajectoire aussi extraordinaire

    Mobilizing Voters in the United States and the United Kingdom: political strategies from parties and grassroots organizations (1867 – 2017)

    Following two different and yet complementary approaches (one from the top down with parties and the other from the bottom up with grassroots organizations), we propose to compare how potential voters have been appealed to, through the use of different strategies and tools of communication”. Whether it be organizations or parties, it will be interesting to analyze how these groups either (re)connect citizens with politics or give birth to social movements which durably occupy the political landscape of the United States and the United Kingdom. Common features may be observed along with distinct approaches particularly adapted to the specificity of each country concerned.

    What do we see, what do we hear in Ken Loach's Kes (1969)?

    The conference on Kes is, to begin with, an opportunity to look at and listen to what is registered in this remarkable film by Ken Loach, made fifty years ago. To the question “What do we see, what do we hear in Kes?”, the answers should not be anachronistic. The intention is to take in, from a variety of angles and approaches, what is shown and made audible here: a community of women, men, children, their lives woven into, both propped up and confined by, the institutional nexus of component places, home, workplace, school, public house, and component times, early morning, Friday night. What animates Ken Loach’s picture of a mining community are the tensions evident in the sights and sounds through which the modest story of Billy Casper is conveyed, a story affording access to the lives of people as they play out, in occasional and sometimes irreversible conflict with other lives.

    Medieval Conceptions and Practices of Space

    Revue « Études Médiévales Anglaises »

    Though space is by no means a medieval concept (in 14th century use, the word referred primarily to time, or to an interval between two objects, rather than to the abstract idea of an extended area that can be filled or crossed), the concept in its complexity has over the last decades gained considerable critical importance in medieval studies. Medievalists have always paid attention to spatial questions, namely in the shape of inquiries into the location of national or religious communities, into medieval practices of pilgrimages, processions and travels, or into the symbolic associations of various places (the forest, the garden, the castle…).
