    The Tangier Zone Statute Centenary

    Bringing together scholars from both sides of the Mediterranean, this conference aims to renew interest in the International Zone of Tangier (1925–56). It will take place 100 years to the day after France, Spain, and the United Kingdom signed the Zone’s constitutive treaty, known as the “Tangier Zone Statute”. The agreement, which was later joined by Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Italy, subjected Tangier to a special regime: although nominally an integral part of Morocco, the city and its surroundings were to a large extent subject to the joint administration of Western powers.

    Writing a Decentred and Entangled History of Cinema-Going

    Epistemological and Methodological Issues

    The aim of this conference is to shift the focus of the study of cinema, which is largely centred on Western Europe and the United States. It will bring to a close the 'Faire communauté(s) face à l'écran' research project (Université Paris Lumières, École universitaire de recherche ArTeC), which for three years has been examining the identities of cinema audiences and intermediaries involved in the exploitation and distribution of cinematographic entertainment in the twentieth century from a transnational and comparative perspective.

    Climate Change and Human-Environment Interaction in the Caucasus

    Geo-bio-archeological and literary perspectives

    Joining forces between scientists of different disciplines and countries in order to register the various data about the human interaction with the environment in moments of crisis throughout history, should help us to prepare solutions for this near future. For a proper estimation of the whole chain of (probably catastrophic) events which could affect a country like Georgia, land of the Golden Fleece, we need to consider the whole circuit of the peak water, from the melting glaciers to the high mountain lakes, the river basins, their deltas and the sea. The climatic, geomorphologic, ecologic modellings must be related with ideas from arts and humanities as well as social sciences, in the longue durée, in order to anticipate the societal changes of the next generation. Based on our previous research on the geohistory and geobio-archaeology of the Black Sea, the Colchis lowlands, on rivers – including the mythical Phasis – and lakes, this meeting is intended as a kick-off for future international and interdisciplinary collaborations.

    Safeguarding the health and safety of children in agriculture

    Webinar 2023

    Worldwide, agriculture is among the most dangerous industries and one of the few that consistently involves children. Whether children are working or merly present in the farm worksite, they are exposed to a wide array of agricultural-related hazards which results in these children experiencing high rates of injuries and fatalities compared to children in the general population. Understanding and addressing children health and safety issues in agriculture is important from a public health and child advocacy perspective. Safeguarding children in agriculture also connects back to the social and economic sustainability of farm labor systems.This webinar invites to shed light on the health and safety of children in agriculture in Northern and Southern countries with an emphasis on family farm systems and to support the development of a network of scholars and practitioners working on these topics.

    La première république en images. Génèse, circulation et postérité d’une imagerie politique

    Proclamée le 11 février 1873, la Première République espagnole représente, en un sens, la culmination du processus révolutionnaire inauguré par La Gloriosa quatre années auparavant. Cependant, en raison sans doute de son caractère éphémère, son histoire est généralement englobée dans des études plus larges sur la période révolutionnaire ou sur le républicanisme en tant que pensée politique. Il en va de même de l’ensemble des images politiques élaborées durant la Première République et qui sont rarement analysées en tant que corpus plastique à part entière. À l’occasion des 150 ans de sa proclamation, ce colloque entend examiner cet épisode historique qu’est la Première République espagnole à l’aune de l’iconographie politique à laquelle il a donné lieu, afin de récupérer et d’historiciser les images de/sur cette période tout en leur rendant leur identité et leur(s) significations(s), aussi bien dans l’Espagne péninsulaire et insulaire qu’à l’étranger.

    Colonialismes et colonialités : théories et circulations en portugais et français

    “Colonialismos” e “colonialidades” são termos empregues no século XX para fazer referência à dinâmica que fundou o sistema-mundo capitalista a partir das colonizações europeias em todos os continentes, perpetuando na contemporaneidade práticas de subalternidades nascidas daquele contexto. Partindo destes dois termos, o colóquio apropria-se de um vocabulário comum: aquele em que a língua portuguesa e a língua francesa se difundiram pelo mundo. Este encontro apresenta os resultados de pesquisa do projeto Circulações da literatura pós-colonial em francês e em português (CILIPO-FP). O desafio de pensar as circulações entre dois sistemas linguísticos complexos e que implicam contextos e historicidades globais, foi lançado a catorze investigadoras e investigadores em 12 universidades, do Brasil, de Portugal e de França.

    Democratic Representation in and by International Organizations

    International organizations (IOs) play a central role in contemporary international law-making: they institutionalize many of the processes through which international law is adopted today, be it through international law-making conferences, international courts or as IO secondary law. Yet, the question of democratic representation in IOs, but also by IOs when they become members of other IOs or intervene as participants in other international law-making processes remains difficult, to say the least.

    The Agency of Plants in the Literature and the Arts of the French and English-Speaking Worlds (19th-21st century)

    Puissances du végéter dans la littérature et les arts des mondes francophones et anglophones (XIXe-XXIe siècle)

    The aim of this international conference is to reflect on the active role of plants in texts and visual representations in the literature and arts of the anglophone and the francophone worlds from the nineteenth century to the present day. We will think about the aesthetic, political, and epistemological implications of this form of agency and analyse the way in which plants act upon and with the human world from an anthrodecentric perspective. We will look at how plants can organise or disorganise our world, call into question established truths, and shape power relations, including political ones.

    Realism in Perspective

    Aesthetics & Critique VI

    Back to Reality! Whether in art or philosophy, recent years have witnessed an outright run on the real, under banners such as speculative realism, neo-materialism, documentality, eco-realism, speculative poetics, or object-oriented aesthetics. Only progressively it starts to become clear that what these approaches respectively mean by realism differs sharply. The workshop shall confront various epistemic and artistic strategies seeking to grasp the ever-evading nature of reality, and work towards understanding the reasons behind this renewed desire for touching the “thing itself”. If the only claim these different realisms seem to agree upon is the need to decentre the human perspective, could it be that perspectivalness itself provides a key to a novel understanding of reality?

    Merchants, arts, luxury and beauty

    The long-distance, large-scale luxury trade or the promotion of the arts by merchants are extremely important elements in the evolution of our contemporary societies. What were the legal and institutional strategies on the topic of the judicial history of commerce? Tax privileges, protection of individuals and property, are just a few examples of regulatory interventions in the European and extra-European luxury trade.The private legal sphere is no less interesting: contractual relations between individuals in this area, the regimes of pacts between parties, the value given to goods and merchandise in the identification of the price of obligations, are all aspects of fundamental importance for understanding the legal dynamics that have shaped European legal culture.

    Empirical Legal Research: a state of knowledge across Europe

    The objective of this conference is to produce a state of knowledge on the development of empirical legal research at the European level. First, it will trace the first elements of the development of these methods, highlight the main trends and elucidate the possible theoretical foundations. The conference will then map the use of empirical methods in the different legal disciplines across Europe before deepening this analysis in the field of environmental law.

    After Nature

    Aesthetics & Critique, V

    For centuries, artists have been keen to paint from nature. What remains of this aesthetic project in a world where nature is revealed as already fully “anthropized”? What is left of nature, when it has lost the status of the Great Outdoors? Faced with climate emergency, other politics – but also: aesthetics – of nature become urgent. How to conceive a nature that is no longer located beyond us, but that permeates us? How to think, in return, a nature already marked by recursive processes, in short: by technique ? Perhaps nature after nature never was but that: a nature that discovers itself as having always been second nature. A nature as art.

    ¿Quién hace tanta bulla? Actualité de Trilce de César Vallejo

    Más que un simple homenaje o una merecida celebración, el coloquio internacional ¿Quién hace tanta bulla? Actualité de Trilce tiene como objetivo pensar dicho poemario, en el centenario de su publicación, como una de las expresiones más extremas de la modernidad poética, en el marco de la revolución verbal y artistica provocada por las primeras vanguardias. El propósito de esta manifestación científica es también y sobre todo explorar las vidas y prolongaciones ulteriores de este libro a través de las diversas obras poéticas, artisticas, críticas, e incluso filosóficas, que desde 1922 hasta hoy dialogan con él.

    Ex-voto : créations votives, subversion et transgression

    Appréhender l’ex-voto sous l’angle de la transgression et de la subversion invite à considérer les interdits, détournements et appropriations qui régissent son emploi dans un contexte dévotionnel ou non. Il s’agit au cours de cette troisième rencontre d’interroger la relation qui unit le donateur à l’intercesseur sollicité par le biais de l’ex-voto offert. La plasticité du fait votif rend compte d’une relation à la fois subjective et affective, qui explique en partie ses métamorphoses et sa persistance. Elle souligne également le poids culturel de l’ex-voto dans la société où il évolue. Au cours de ces deux journées, l’examen des transgressions et subversions mises en œuvre par l’ex-voto, ainsi que celles dont il est l’objet, permet l’étude de son fonctionnement, la pérennité de sa pratique et la créativité qu’il fait naître.

    Hungary, Folklore and Modernity

    FolkFocus

    The conference aims to study the hungarian folk movement called “táncházmozgalom” (“dance house movement”). In 2022, this movement celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the first “táncház” (“dance house”, type of traditional dance ball), held in Budapest on the 6th of May 1972. The process of “learning by doing” is a central dynamic to the personal investment of the youngsters in this movement, during the music and dance lessons as well as during the táncházak (dance houses), koncertek (concerts) and táborok (camps). The dance house movement is also very much marked by hungarian ethnography of the XXth century. The practices of dancing and music are anchored in the consulting of numerous works and archives of ethnographic collections from the last century. As such, the “táncházmozgalom” is often called “revival movement” since it brings melodies and steps of rural folk music back up to date in the modern and urban context of Budapest.
