    Bande dessinée en Asie de l’Est

    Dans le cadre de l'année de la bande dessinée 2020 lancée en France par le ministère de la Culture, ce colloque propose de revenir sur tout un pan de la bande dessinée mondiale selon une approche régionale, centrée sur l'aire est-asiatique. Il s'agit de décentrer le point de vue habituellement focalisé sur les bandes dessinées américaine ou franco-belge, et d'élargir les discours déjà nombreux sur le manga japonais à d'autres traditions voisines, en Corée, en Chine, à Taiwan, à Hong Kong.

    Soldiers, prisoners and converts between permeable borders in the Mare Nostrum (16th-18th centuries)

    The COST Action “Islamic Legacy: Narratives East, West, South, North of the Mediterranean (1350-1750)” [CA 18129] is launching a call for a conference “Soldiers, prisoners and converts between permeable borders in the Mare Nostrum (16th-18th centuries)”. The event that we are disseminating is being organised within this project, which as the purpose to provide a transnational and interdisciplinary approach capable of overcoming the segmentation that currently characterizes the study of relations between Christianity and Islam in late medieval and early modern Europe and the Mediterranean. We aim to create a network that will help to provide a comprehensive understanding of past relations between Christianity and Islam in the European context through the addressing of three main research problems: otherness, migration and borders.

    Discourse, pratices and tools used in the migration/development relationship: circulation, innovation and resistance to the South

    Panel - APAD conference 2020

    How do texts, practices and tools related to the “migration and development” debate circulate? This panel offers to analyse the processes of imposition, translation or hybridization, along with “travelling models”, and the appropriation or resistance experiences of the different categories of actors involved in migration/development governance. We examine the transnational circulation of texts and narratives that have become references for development practitioners in the Global South; the performativity of technical and managerial instruments, case models and “good practices”; the changes in the intermediaries and brokers categories.

    Regulating religions?

    Legal and social status in contemporary Europe

    The regulation of relation between the states and religious groups has often been the focus of scholarly interest, especially in the ’90s, when the so-called New Religious Movements drew a lot of attention. Nowadays, many rapid changes occurring at the same time (evolution of the religious landscape, changes in political discourses, secularisation, movements of population, etc.) encourages further consideration of the subject. With its specific approach, the Eurel network brings together specialists of law and social sciences of religion, and it intends to tackle this issue at its next conference.

    Transgressing to better rule: shadows and lights of the power in Antiquity

    Open to the whole of the ancient Mediterranean world, this conference is intended to be transdisciplinary. Several approaches can be considered: communications are expected to propose a reflection on forms of power or transgressive acts and to set out their characteristics, as well as their links with the society in which these powers and acts emerge. All types of transgressions can be addressed: social, political, philosophical, religious, literary, linguistic, etc.

    Towards a Decentered History of Dance

    How is history moved, reconfigured, stimulated, by current research on dance? In connection with the Lyon Dance Biennale and the forthcoming publication of A History of Dance in the West (Ed. Seuil, Sept. 2020), this international conference in Lyon, France, aims to extend questions addressed by scholars’ contributions to the book, as well as generate entirely new dialogues via various acts of “decentering” dance historical scholarship. The polysemic notion of decentering is here understood as an invitation to reevaluate theoretical models, methods, approaches and historiographies of dance.

    Greece(s) - Histoire de l'art journal, no 86

    Histoire de l'art, no 86

    2021 marks the bicentennial of the Greek uprising which resulted, at the end of a long war, in the country’s independence:Greece was thus born as a modern nation while romanticism, particularly in France, made it one of its favorite themes,carrying out out a vibrant philhellenic movement. The commemoration should not, however, cover up that there were andare other Greeces, from antiquity to our own day. The theme of this issue is also given in the plural since the construction of Greek art in the modern era is but one of the phenomena considered here. It is the plurality of constructions of Greecein art which unifies the collection of studies and essays which we envision.

    Cosmology, a metaphysical need, a need for metaphysics?

    Ce colloque pour jeunes chercheurs aura pour but d'interroger la dimension métaphysique des cosmologies depuis l'antiquité jusqu'à notre époque. Ce sera un lieu privilégié pour discuter de l’hypothèse qui est à l’origine de ce projet, à savoir celle de l’existence d’un besoin - ou en tous cas d’une aspiration – métaphysique à l’œuvre dans tout travail cosmologique. À cette occasion pourront ainsi être discutés le rejet de la métaphysique et le tournant "scientiste" de la cosmologie moderne, ainsi que les critiques ou redéfinitions de cette idéologie scientiste à l'époque contemporaine.

    Investigating, describing and thinking institutions: (dis)continuities and transformations

    Plus qu’une synthèse du terme institution, ce colloque s'interroge sur ce qui les façonne, ce qu’elles véhiculent, produisent et transforment. À la croisée de plusieurs courants de pensée et de différentes manières, ce colloque vise à aborder, à définir et à analyser les institutions et les rapports sociaux qu’elles sous-tendent. Il propose de porter un regard renouvelé sur la question de l’institution, en interrogeant ses rôles dans les processus de transformation sociale. En somme : comment penser, à travers la notion d’institution, la pérennité et la transformation de pratiques, de valeurs, de normes sociales, d’identités, de collectifs, de politiques et de lois ?

    Identidades, valores e modos de vida

    XI Congresso português de sociologia

    A proposta para este Congresso da Associação Portuguesa de Sociologia é a de debatermos na área temática de identidades, valores e modos de vida os vários planos e escalas da incerteza e do risco na experiência dos sujeitos, tanto a nível individual como coletivo, destacando o interesse em analisar e desconstruir a tendência para a normalização da descontinuidade e da incerteza. Procura-se, por um lado, prover a análise dos efeitos sobre a transformação da experiência e, por outro, a observação das estratégias e dos mecanismos de superação engendrados pelas instituições e pelos indivíduos.

    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.

    Sábios, professores e artistas. Artes e saberes em movimento, práticas em transformação

    CONLAB 2020 - CALL GT73

    De que modo pode o diálogo com as artes ajudar a transformar práticas pedagógicas tendo em vista a construção de saberes e, simultaneamente, a superação de situações de conflito, dis-criminação e desigualdade em contexto de sala de aula? Na resposta a esta questão inspiramo-nos nas palavras de Max Weber em torno de “A Ciência como Vocação” para daí interrogar o papel e o lugar do professor universitário e as (novas) exigências do “fazer docente”, hoje.

    « Night Studies » de l'Antiquité à l'époque moderne

    Pour l'heure, les Night Studies constituent un objet scientifique surtout abordé par des contemporanéistes spécialistes d'histoire urbaine. Nous souhaiterions initier une réflexion collective relevant des problématiques des Night Studies appliquées aux périodes antique à moderne, en menant une interrogation conceptuelle et notionnelle d'ordre philosophique, heuristique, herméneutique, épistémologique, esthétique et historiographique sur la spécificité de la nuit.

    Thinking about violence in Africa through women’s experiences: vulnerability & subversion

    Penser la violence en Afrique au travers de l’expérience des femmes: vulnérabilité et subversion

    The two-day conference “Junges Forum 2020” seeks to reflect on women’s experiences of violence in Africa from an interdisciplinary perspective. The aim is not to discuss passive experience in the context of violence (if it exists at all) but to attempt to outline different experiences of violence (symbolic, social, domestic, epistemic, political or sexual) as well as to explore how they can be transformed, appropriated and reversed. The “Junges Forum” explicitly invites young researchers (PhD students, postdoctoral scholars) to share their ideas from various disciplines (anthropology, film studies, gender studies, history, literary studies, psychology, sociology, etc.) in order to encourage an interdisciplinary exchange and open debates related to the topic. The main focus is to be on African countries and regions only.

    Violencia y política en Latinoamérica: instituciones, sociedad civil y conflictividad

    Deuxième journée d’étude

    Cette journée d'études portera sur les liens entre violence et politique dans l'Amérique latine contemporaine (XXe-XXIe). Nous nous proposons d'examiner le phénomène de la violence comme élément structurant du politique dans le sous-continent, qu'il s'agisse d'une violence d'« en haut » (contrôle, répression exercés par l'État), d'« en bas », sous une forme extrême ou diffuse. Nous nous interrogerons sur les modalités de manifestation et d'expression de la violence, ainsi que sur les buts qu'elle peut servir. Les transmutations de la violence à l'œuvre actuellement seront également analysées (porosité croissante entre violence politique et criminalité, débordement du cadre étatique, narcoétat).

    Cette journée d’étude aura pour objet d’examiner le discours sur les vices du temps à l’époque moderne, aussi bien sur le plan conceptuel que rhétorique, politique, moral ou spirituel. Nous accueillerons avec beaucoup d’intérêt les contributions qui montrent comment ces questionnements se déploient dans les différents genres, référentiels ou fictionnels, dans les différents champs du savoir, à la fois théoriques et appliqués, ainsi que dans la singularité de la pensée des différents auteurs.

    "Too many cooks": Collective and collaborative writing

    Qu’entend-on, au juste, par écriture collective ? Un travail où le sujet passe consécutivement de main en main ? Ou bien une pratique d’écriture collaborative simultanée ? Si les États-Unis, habitués depuis les débuts du cinéma au travail standardisé, « à la chaîne », avec des équipes de scénaristes parachutés les uns après les autres sur des projets, semblent à l’origine de ces processus d’écriture collective, la France et sa pratique « auteuriste » est-elle bien différente ? D’autres pays proposent-ils des modèles singuliers à l’échelle internationale ? On peut aussi se poser la question de l’influence du modèle anglo-saxon d’écriture des séries à l’heure où ces dernières sont aussi légitimées que le cinéma.
