    (Re)Ordering the Gods. The Mythographic Web through Times

    Names and epithets, historical facts, rituals and monuments, textual fragments, plants and places: these are samples of the wide material that the mythographic tradition deals with. How do we organise it? What data to choose, how to present it and what for? This online workshop organised at the Warburg Institute will question the different forms of mythographic compilation.

    Imaginary places, real territories

    Territorial imagery and the creation of Dutch identities (1579-1702)

    From the creation of a federal State in 1579 to the temporary disappearance of the Stadholderate in 1702, what role did the visual culture play in the political assertion of a national territory? How does the artist’s gaze on the territory, local or foreign, real or imagined, allows us to understand this rhetoric? How exactly are fantasized or real elements of foreign places integrated in a local visual discourse? What do these images reveal of the public who commissions, buys and looks at them? Within the process of national and territorial construction, how are these territorial perspectives integrated and part of the enrichment of the Dutch identity narrative? Considering the variety of these issues, this symposium aims to shed light on the ways in which Dutch depictions of national and transnational territories participated in the formulation of a shared identity.

    Eroticism, Poetic Concretism, and Visuality (1960-1970)

    The erotic imaginary and the relation between body, gender and text nourished the daring experiences of neo-avant-garde visual poetics in the 1960s and 1970s by establishing themselves at the core of “verbi-voco-visual explorations” (McLuhan, 1967). Without losing sight of the vast cultural heritage and references of historical avant-gardes as well as of Beat Poetry, Fluxus and Situationist visual-erotic production, the symposium aims at reconstructing and assessing the impact of erotic desire on Concrete and Visual Poetry through a rich corpus of literary works, magazines, and ephemera starting with the Bibliothèque Kandinsky – Centre Pompidou collections and expanding the reflection to other relevant examples of post-war experimental poetry. In addition to keynote lectures and academic presentations, the conference will host poetry readings and performances in order to prompt an interdisciplinary and international debate on the issues, and to examine a unique body of works that illuminate the far-reaching conceptual and poetic implications of neo-avant-garde verbo-visual eroticism.

    Aesthetics and critique III

    Thinking in Pandemic Times

    L'initiative de cet atelier de recherche découle de l'urgent besoin de circonscrire et de redéfinir le rôle de l'esthétique, des arts et de leur théorisation aujourd'hui, tant par rapport aux autres formations du savoir que par rapport à nos sociétés contemporaines en général. Quelles sont les fonctions critiques de l'esthétique aujourd'hui ? Comment l'enquête sur les conditions sensibles et incarnées de la connaissance, l'exploration des fondements imaginaires de l'action sociale et politique ou l'engagement avec des œuvres d'art contribuent à renouveler cette tâche ancienne : l'autocritique de la raison sensible ?

    The Energy Transition in a Health-Constrained World

    2nd Annual Global Energy Law and Policy Conference

    In early 2020, the world literally shut down when, amidst deep uncertainty, the Covid pandemic spread, cases immediately increased, and mortality rates were out of control in some countries. In such a health-constrained world, all major achievements in the process of completion would have to be put on hold. This situation fully illustrated the profound interconnectedness of the world, from the health system to the energy system. Yet, a year before, the energy sector, which is currently in transition, offered good prospects. Some scenarios envisaged a decline in energy demand from 2040 onwards, although the world economy was likely to continue to grow at an average rate of 3.4 percent per year. In this scenario, the demand for gas, which is currently increasing, was expected to decline around 2030, while the growth of renewable energy was expected to lead to a consequent decline in the share of coal and oil in world consumption. Will such a forecast be confirmed following the disruption caused by Covid-19?

    Environmental Social Governance (ESG): Major Mover Towards Sustainable Energy Future

    5th Annual North American Environment, Energy, & Natural Resources Conference

    Even as the world shut down in 2020 from covid-19, ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) investing and principles accelerated their domination of the operation of and investment in the private sector.  These accelerating trends came despite initial fears that the COVID crisis would slow consideration of ESG.  In fact, ESG investments outperformed the broader market, and ESG related projects can command a premium in investment and lender interest. Historic fossil fuel emitters are not exempt.  In a two month span in early 2021, several large legacy oil companies indicated an intent to become carbon neutral and to accelerate diversification into renewable energies.
