    The precious object: a total social fact?

    Social, political, religious, symbolic, commercial: the multiple functions, roles and representations of precious objects

    Over the centuries and across the globe, precious objects – and jewelry in particular – have given rise to a wide range of sometimes contradictory reactions, testifying to their major role in human societies. Rejected through notions of waste and luxury, admired or desired for aesthetic, symbolic, religious or economic reasons, the precious object has many functions: offering, symbol (status, power, loyalty, etc.), social or family heirloom, element of exchange and even economic driving force. If the precious object establishes a cultural and social divide, it is also subjected to imitation or reproduction, making it a fashionable, “mass-market” object. But what properties determine the value of precious objects?

    Pastoral Academies. A global Phenomenon?

    At the intersection between literature and socio-cultural history, but also between methods, the comparative and the historical-philological approach, this conference offers an opportunity for the study traditions of several countries, including France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Poland, to come together around a relatively new research subject: the pastoral academy. Between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, throughout Europe and even in Latin America, writers, poets and scholars, men and women, took on the names of shepherds in pastoral literary academies. While some of these academies are well known (the Accademia dell'Arcadia in Rome, the Pegnesische Blumenorden in Nuremberg), the phenomenon was on an unsuspected scale and deserves to be explored in its global dimension.

    Art as Philosophy? The Reception of German Idealism and Early Romanticism by artists, from the 19th century to the present day

    While the philosophical reception of German Idealism and Early Romanticism has been the subject of a number of studies, research so far has given little attention to the question of its knowledge and use by artists. The aim of the conference is to open up a space for interdisciplinary dialogue, informed by case studies, on the role that the discovery of Classical German Philosophy has played in European and American visual arts, from the early nineteenth century to the present day.

    Matter Materiality

    36th Congress of the Comité international d’histoire de l’art (CIHA)

    Matter and materiality are relevant to the conception, production, interpretation and conservation of works of art from all cultures and periods. This theme draws on the very sources of art and opens up the major issues of our time (resource management, sustainability, the environment, new technologies, digital dematerialisation, etc.). Taking an interest in the matter and materiality of art means taking into account economic, environmental, ideological and aesthetic aspects, and examining the transformation of works of art over time, as well as the gestures and hands that shape them.

    Mobility & Interactions in the Meuse-Rhine Region (9th–15th Cent.)

    Young researcher’s conference

    Throughout the Middle Ages, from the kingdom of Lothar II to the creation of the first modern state boundaries, the region of the Rhine and Meuse lay at the crossroads between two big linguistic and cultural areas. Political tensions, artistic currents and waves of spiritual renewal continually crossed this vast territory, stretching from Utrecht to Basel and from Cambrai to Cologne and Strasbourg. After a first conference organized in April 2022 at the University of Trier, this second multidisciplinary encounter aims to bring together PhD students and post-doctoral researchers working on mobility and interactions in this region.

    Les mondes professionnels de l’ornement d’architecture : acteurs et pratiques du XVIIIe siècle à nos jours

    The “Professional Worlds” of Architectural Ornament: Actors and Practices from the 18th Century to the Present Day

    This symposium aims to contribute to a better understanding of the "professional worlds" of architectural ornament, by fostering a dialogue between two dynamic fields of research that have hitherto rarely been connected: the history of ornament and the history of professions linked to architecture and construction. Resolutely positioned on the side of craftspeople and professional practices, the various contributions will focus on: the spectrum of ornamental professionals; the relationships between professions and the concrete organization of production chains; and finally, the circulation of people, techniques, and material elements. Covering a wide range of geographical and cultural areas, they will cover a broad contemporary period – from the 18th century to the 2010s.

    Conference, symposium - Information

    Culture in a digital context

    Questioning practices, categories and methods

    The digital transformation has allowed for works to be digitized and shared on the website of cultural institutions (museums, theaters, libraries, etc.). It has also increased the range of online offerings, which grew exponentially during the recent health crisis. Therefore, is it accurate to call both those who frequent cultural institutions in person and those who consult their offerings online as “audiences”? Attempts to define cultural contents that are marked by hybridization processes and the blurring of levels of legitimacy makes it difficult to identify what is a cultural practice, an informational practice, entertainment or a form of sociability, and thus further complicates this issue. How can we define what constitutes a digital cultural practice?

    War Losses and Naval Warfare (18th to 21st century)

    Anticipating Naval Losses: Innovations & Prospects

    « Si tu veux faire la guerre sur mer, prépare-toi aux pertes au combat », serait-on tenté d’écrire. Le temps nécessaire à la construction d’une unité comme celui requis pour former l’équipage chargé de l’armer implique d’anticiper la question des pertes sur mer. Quelles sont les ressources humaines, matérielles, intellectuelles et culturelles de l’anticipation ? Quels sont les acteurs chargés d’anticiper ces pertes et quelle est leur expérience des pertes vécues et/ou représentées ? Quelles sont les données utilisées pour anticiper les pertes ? Comment le « retex » (retour d’expérience) est-il pris en compte dans l’anticipation du combat et des pertes ? La question de l’anticipation implique également de réfléchir aux structures mobilisées pour recueillir le renseignement, échanger avec ses alliés et espionner ses adversaires de manière à comprendre la circulation des informations.

    The native podcast: understanding its development, questioning its future

    Ce colloque international a vocation à interroger la place du podcast en France et en Europe. Pourquoi, alors qu’il ne présente pas une innovation de rupture majeure et qu’il existe depuis longtemps, le podcast s’est-il récemment développé aussi rapidement et aussi fortement ? Comment expliquer les ressorts et les enjeux sociaux, économiques, technologiques de ce succès et de ses ambivalences ?

    Investigating architectural research by drawing

    Ce colloque centré sur les productions hors des mots des chercheurs propose d’interroger plus particulièrement les représentations visuelles dessinées en situation de recherche. En considérant les modes de fabrication des dessins, les méthodes dans lesquelles ils s’inscrivent et les outils qu’ils mobilisent, nous souhaitons ouvrir des questionnements épistémologiques sur la recherche en architecture et sur ce que l’on pourrait nommer la « recherche par le dessin ».

    Pilgrimages on the Western Front of the First World War: from the end of the war to contemporary practices

    La première guerre mondiale a duré quatre ans et s’est déroulée sur pas moins de onze théâtres d’opérations à travers le monde. Des millions de personnes y ont perdu la vie. C’est finalement le front occidental qui a causé le plus de pertes humaines et où s’est décidée l’issue de la guerre. Pendant la guerre elle-même, au gré des gains territoriaux, les soldats sont retournés dans les cimetières provisoires où leurs camarades étaient tombés. Dès la fin de la guerre et durant les décennies qui ont suivi, des dizaines de milliers d’anciens combattants, de familles de défunts et de délégations officielles ont entrepris des pèlerinages sur les champs de bataille à la recherche de proches disparus dans un vaste mouvement d’hommage collectif ou individuel sans précédent dans l’histoire.

    Emotions, masculinities, and violence from the Middle Ages to the present

    This conference proposes to question the evolution of violence over the long term. The articulation between masculinities, violence and emotions adopts different forms and stakes according to the historical context in which it occurred. Thus, the symposium will seeks to highlight the cultural stakes and the specific imaginary, as violence is defined in variable ways depending on historical, geographical, and discursive contexts. Therefore, the first objective will be to address the problem of sources: their production varied according to the aeras, which impacts the representation of the relationship between violence, gender and emotions.

    Time and Justice, Timing Justice

    Early modern and contemporary times, Europe and Americas

    Recent sociological research has emphasised the centrality of time as a key issue in the legitimacy and functioning of the judicial establishment. However, little research has been conducted by historians regarding the connection between justice and time. The purpose of this conference is to provide a comprehensive overview of the relationship between justice and time over the course of several centuries, in order to contextualise the current acceleration of justice. The aim is to examine how justice shapes its temporalities and their connection to other social temporalities. This questioning takes as its framework Europe and the Americas in the modern and contemporary periods, in order to compare different spaces, contexts and legal cultures.

    Sustainable transition of organizations and communities: challenges and perspectives

    Transitioning towards sustainability concerns all organisations, private and public, large and small. For businesses, climate change represents a cost. The growing pressure on natural resources is likely to exacerbate supply difficulties, as is the case with the issue of access to water, which is threatening farming activities in the Mediterranean region, particularly in Morocco. The aim of this symposium is to launch a global debate on how to better understand sustainable transition, based on a participatory approach involving a range of stakeholders : businesses, local authorities, governments, institutions, associations, scientists and experts, right down to ordinary citizens. It is also an opportunity to look more closely at the challenges and prospects of sustainable transition in different sectors (transport, tourism, energy, agriculture, etc.).

    “Voces”. Latin Middle Ages through Key Words

    Expressing and Performing Emotions

    Medieval society is inextricably linked to the words that shaped the existence at that time, both spoken and written. It was through these words that the men and women of the Middle Ages shared their beliefs, ideas and experiences. Words were used to share knowledge and preach the Gospel, but also to stigmatise the Other, exclude heterodoxy or call for war. Mastering the meaning of words was one of the main ways of retaining power, appropriating wealth or controlling access to knowledge. This could lead to verbal jousting, or even real conflict. The conference "Voces. Latin Middle Ages through Key Words" aims to take a closer look at Latin words that have played an important rolein the medieval culture. Every two years we propose to focus on a different major medieval concept and its linguistic expressions.
