    Migrants in the globalizing city

    Spaces, places and mobilities in Asia, Europe and the Middle East

    While migrant presence and integration have shaped public debate and scientific enquiry for some time now, it has often been examined through eurocentric notions such as assimilation, multiculturalism and, more recently, cosmopolitanism. Yet, it is clear that not only Europe (or the Western World) has to deal with migration related issues, countries in Asia and the Middle East are also experiencing high inflows of variously skilled migrants, while the robustness of their borders are frequently tested by undocumented migrants and refugees.This conference proposes to give focus to globalising cities from Asia, Europe and the Middle East which are marked by the diversity of their population and distinct ways of managing migrant diversity.

    The old Babylonian Diyala: research since the 1930s and prospects

    The region around the river Diyala, which runs approximately 500 km, from the mountains between Iraq and Iran, down to the south of Baghdad where it joins the Tigris, was the home of dozens of cities, villages and communities during the long history of ancient Mesopotamia. In the first centuries of the second millennium BCE, the strategic position of the region turned it into a point of articulation, dispute and mediation of the Babylonian area in the south and the Assyrian area in the north. Added to the growing power of the city of Eshnunna, this led the region to play a significant role in the international politics of those times.

    Kidney allocation: Evaluation and perspectives

    These last years, the graft assignment schemes, in particular for kidneys, have experienced profound changes. Several of these changes have occurred through collaborations among researchers and practitioners. The program for the workshop “Kidney allocation : Evaluation and Perspectives” will be along these lines. The first goal is to present and assess the practices in France and in Europe as well as the perspectives of evolutions. In a second step, recent researches will be presented, at the frontier of economics and operation research, with the objective of understanding the theoretical properties of these allocation schemes and of developing tools for empirical analysis.

    La guerre comme zone de contact au XIXe siècle

    Cette journée d’étude se propose d’initier un débat sur les formes de la rencontre et celles des transferts en temps de guerre pendant un « long dix-neuvième siècle » (1789-1914). Nous souhaitons également travailler sur la manière dont les historiens utilisent les nouvelles méthodes numériques et transforment les études de cas de façon à rendre leurs résultats plus largement accessibles. Le choix de cette période est déterminé par la richesse de ses multiples innovations dans des domaines comme la communication, les transports de masse, l’armement, le droit international concernant la conduite de la guerre, qui ont alimenté une fructueuse réflexion sur le fait de savoir si le XIXe siècle ouvrait la voie à la totalisation de l’activité guerrière ou s’il devait être évalué en ses propres termes.

    Language contact and translation in religious context

    Comparative approaches

    This conference brings together anthropologists and linguists working on conversion, cultural transmission and translation theory, as well as on various case studies, whose geography comprises Oceania, Amazonia, Yucatan, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, Europe, Alaska and Chukotka (Russia), and whose temporal frame spreads from the Hellenistic era to the Spanish colonization of the Americas and to the present time. The main questions of the conference are the modalities of the ethnolinguistic encounter and translation accompanying religious conversion, whether, and how, the language gets altered as a result of these processes, and what are the broader cognitive and sociocultural consequences that accompany the linguistic transformation.

    Femmes artistes à l’âge classique (arts du dessin, peinture, sculpture, gravure)

    Comment ces artistes sont-elles désignées, et de quelle manière préfèrent-elles se nommer ? Le siècle hésite à se saisir d’expressions pour les qualifier. Quelles sont les conditions de travail et de vie de ces artistes ? De quelles façons apprennent-elles leur art, où peuvent-elles l’exercer et l’exposer, avec qui à leurs côtés ? Quelle est la réception de leur art dans les Salons et les journaux de l’époque, en France et en Europe ? En quelle réputation – nationale et internationale, bonne ou mauvaise – sont-elles ?

    Stages of Utopia and Dissent, 50 years on...

    15 May 1968: the Odeon theatre in Paris is occupied by students and becomes the insurgent headquarters where every night militants recount the days' action in occupied factories to an audience of people camping in the auditorium. Youth rebellion was never as mythologised as that of the French students’ fight against institutional oppression. The effects were felt across the Channel, too – but the nature of those effects was, and remains, disputed. 50 years on… where are we? What remains of autogestion and emancipatory education? What remains of theatre inventiveness and sedition? What remains of a need for participatory audiences? What remains of utopia and dissent?

    Pervasive powers

    Corporate authority in the shaping of public policy

    The power of corporate business has been a subject of intense debate and many social science studies since the 19th century. This conference is based on the idea that, not only has this power varied among industries, countries and different periods, but also that the way in which it is wielded has evolved over time. By bringing together scholars from various backgrounds within the fields of history, sociology, and political science, we intend to provide new insights on the multiplicity, depth and limits of the forms of influence that corporations, or the organizations furthering their interests – business associations, think tanks, communication or public relations agencies, foundations, etc. –, have on public policy.

    Champs, mondes et réseaux de la bande dessinée : le cas de Glénat

    Distinct à la fois des maisons plus traditionnelles comme Dupuis ou Dargaud et des institutions alternatives plus récentes comme L’Association ou Frémok, Glénat est un éditeur original, qui offre des prises diverses et solides permettant de rendre compte de ses rouages et logiques. Fondée en 1969 à Grenoble par le bédéphile amateur jacques Glénat, la maison voit le jour la même année que le fanzine Schtroumpf qui deviendra les fameux cahiers de la bande dessinée (1969-1990), dirigés par Thierry Groensteen à partir de 1984 et qui constituent une clé pour saisir l’émergence d’un discours critique sur la bande dessinée. Glénat investit dans les styles et genres très divers (fantastique, humour, aventure, histoire…) avec dans chaque domaine des succès retentissants comme Les Passagers du vent de François Bourgeon (1980-87) jusqu’à Il était une fois en France (2007-2012).

    Gendering Humanitarian Knowledge

    Global Histories of Compassion from the Mid-Nineteenth Century to the Present

    The conference invites scholars to think about the notion of "humanitarian knowledge" in a multidisciplinary way, by combining perspectives such as gender history, the histories ofemotions and the body, literary and visual culture studies, global health history, as well as the history of institutions and their agents. All of them are useful to explore the transnational networks through which humanitarian practices and ideas have been promoted, disseminated and standardised.The conference brings together scholars interested in working on the history of humanitarian knowledge from a gender perspective. The interventions deal with stories of flesh and blood, which put women’s and men’s humanitarian experiences at their centre, in order to inscribe their local practices within a global history of compassion from the mid-nineteenth century to the present.

    The Many Lives of Europe's Audiovisual Heritage Online

    During the past decade, a massive body of European audiovisual heritage has become accessible online: on video sharing sites and websites of archives, or through initiatives such as EUscreen.eu and Europeana.eu. Once online, audiovisual heritage circulates in diverse ways: users watch, share, like, or dislike it; they comment, appropriate, and download videos for remix and recirculation. It thus becomes part of the popular consumption of history, potentially creating new interpretations of heritage materials, challenging authorised perspectives. Heritage institutions perceive the consequences of the recent technological transformations of the sector as a major challenge and opportunity.

    Colloque - Études urbaines

    Innovative mobility and urban design. Mirroring contemporary metropolises

    The symposium is an invitation addressed to both new and established researchers, as well as experts from both the private or public spheres, who seek to rethink - or even revolutionize - mobility as a societal problem and/or practice, as well as its relation to metropolitan territories and places, through fields of knowledge and action as varied as architecture, engineering, geography, new technologies, and others. The underlying premise of this event is that a new inter-disciplinary, inter-cultural and inter-stakeholder dialogue is necessary in order to respond effectively to the urban mobility issues put forward by the three pillars (social, political and cultural) of sustainable development. How to combine the growing necessity and desire for speed in travel, with the imperative of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases? At the same time, how to achieve better quality public space dedicated to or crossed by mobility? How to ensure that the mobility of people, whether undergone or chosen, is part of a municipal and societal project that is acceptable and sustainable?

    Modes of Authority and Æsthetic Practices from South to Southeast Asia

    From the dances and orchestras in palace pavilions and the singing troupes affiliated with temples to the towering statuary of the great Hindu-Buddhist monuments, from origin narratives to the four-color wood engravings produced by some Austronesian societies, how can we understand this array of aesthetic forms in relation to authority in societies ranging from kingdoms and sultanates to statelessness? These aesthetic forms and practices all have something in common: they are inextricably bound up with certain modes of politico-religious efficacy. What is at stake, then, is to think about the nature of this efficacy as it relates to authority—very broadly understood at this preliminary stage as that which makes it possible to maintain a social order. We will also think about the suppression of these aesthetic forms, some of which are still banned today.
