    Emotional and social communities

    Historical perspectives from the 18th century to the present day

    This conference organized at Sciences Po by David Do Paço and Guillaume Piketty explores how emotional and social communities interacted, completed and challenged in modern European history. Doing so history of emotions progressively meets social history. According to Barbara Rosenwein, an emotional community is ‘a system of feeling’ based on a ‘social community’, i.e. a relational group of people sharing the same economic, social, political interests. This community could be socially diverse and was not exclusive. An individual could also belong to several emotional communities, based on the different moments of her/is life, and the different interests s/he defended when s/he performed her/is emotions.

    Transition, Displacement and Circulation of Objects: Visible and Unseen

    Transition, déplacement et circulation des objets : Visible et « invu »

    This colloquium aims to inquire into the meanings ascribed to, and produced by, the material objects in course of their travel, displacement, circulation, transition in time and space. We suggest to discuss the phenomenology of transitional objects and their performative power; to understand how the meanings of these objects are anchored in their materiality and visibility, how they are communicated by the historical references they evoke, and tightened with the identity of communities that see or ignore them

    Seeing politics through intermediation and intermediaries

    This study-day is about exploring the conceptual expanse of intermediation at local, national and international scales. The neo-liberal transformation of regimes of accumulation greatly affected the arrangement of political and state power (Jessop, 2007), functional logics of political actors, governance mechanisms and international diplomacy. Simultaneously, the type of competencies demanded in these fields also adapted to this new configuration. In the process, forms, meanings, and roles of intermediaries morphed into a mass of actors ranging from individuals (brokers, patrons, fixers) to NGOs (national and transnational) and Think-Tanks to nation-states. In this study-day, researchers will present their work about envisioning intermediation not as a peripheral activity but something that connects different fields and scales of socio-political activity together. The sinews of intermediation connects the citizens with state, policies with governments, ideas with political imaginaries and fields of domestic policy and politics with international diplomacy and migration management.

    Estimating, Locating, and Comparing Mental Disorders in the Second Part of the Twentieth Century

    Psychiatric Epidemiology in Historical Perspective

    Psychiatric epidemiology – the study of the distribution of mental disorders within a population – emerged on the scientific scene during the second half of the 20th century. However, unlike the fields of psychiatry, psychology, and psychoanalysis, psychiatric epidemiology has yet to be studied by historians, largely due to the fact that it was only professionalized much later. Several factors can explain the field’s relative “invisibility”: the still recent standardization of its methods, the diversity of local scientific traditions, nations’ varying public health policies, the range of different sites for observation (rural or urban studies, comparisons between neighbouring communities, insular populations, cohorts) as well as the varieties of interdisciplinary studies implemented within the scientific community (medicine, psychology, sociology, anthropology, biostatistics). These elements highlight the diversity of potential sources, and thus necessarily bring forward the question: how should one go about writing a history of this largely unrecognized field?

    The Transnational History of French Industrialisation before 1914

    The aim of this conference will be to analyse the characteristics of 19th-century French industrialisation and to understand how these distinguish France from other countries that went through the same process in the same era. Instead of using the English case as the only reference (as is customary), particular attention will be paid to a comparison between France and other continental European countries, especially Germany. One important dimension is the place of national industrialisation trajectories in an international and transnational context; in the case of France, colonial empire played an undeniable role.

    Music and Political Democratisation in Late Twentieth Century

    This event aims to innovatively question how musical practices formed ways of imagining democracy in the democratic transitions that took place after Portugal’s ‘Carnation Revolution’ in 1974 – what Huntington (1991) called the ‘third wave’ of democratisation, which involves more than 60 countries throughout Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Rather than studying music’s diverse deployments within these political contexts (music ‘in’ transitions to democracy), these study days place the emphasis upon ways in which music embodies democratisation processes and participates in the wider social struggle to define freedom and equality for the post-authoritarian era (hence the ‘and’ in the title of the event).

    Halal as a Way of Life

    Circulation and Transformation of Islamic Noramtivity in Muslim and Non-Muslim World

    Nowadays, the Islamic market is prospering on the global scale, in particular, in Asia where the hub of its dynamism takes place in the South East-Asian countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, or Singapore. As the term Halal means originally what is “permitted” or “licit” according to the Islamic prescriptions, this notion penetrates in the consumers’ daily life, and we have observed the emergence of a wide range of the the Shariah-compliant products and services,such as food, finance, tourism, transportation, fashion, cosmetics, sport, well-being, education and so on. Halal, to be understood as one of today’s most significant Islamic normativity, orients consumers’ interpretation on “Islamic way oflife.” It has also come to shape the Islamic market as the notion circulates in the globalized public sphere.

    Body, Culture and Identity in Lavapies, Madrid

    From the individual to the collective

    The objective of this Seminar is to stress the importance of a collaborative and participative way to understand through our senses. We want to explore connections between thinking and action in everyday city experiences, developing “in situ” actions. We consider that the knowledge of the space need space experiences. We aim to develop a collective, community exploration of the vital flow of the Lavapiés area in Madrid altering the classical relationship between artist, landscape and inhabitants. This exploration will allow the construction of an intangible map of audiovisual fragments, photo, phonographs, video art, performative actions. The direct experimentation of space helps us understand it, as well as "to perform it"; it helps us understand the aesthetic and emotional relationships we have with it. In order to get our objectives, urban artists, soundscape experts, theater groups, architects, philosopher, civil and social associations, citizens…will be invited.

    Global Social History: Class and Social Transformation in World History

    This conference interweaves global and social history, exploring global social history as a new field of historical inquiry. The papers aim to demonstrate that we cannot understand the emergence and transformation of social groups across the modern world, such as the aristocracy, the economic bourgeoisie, the educated middle classes, or the peasantry, without considering the impact of global entanglements on class formation.

    Risk, Violence, and Collective Agency

    This colloquium will assemble a multidisciplinary group of literary scholars, philosophers, sociologists and historians to explore the interrelation of concepts of risk, violence, and collective agency. Participants will do so in a number of literary, historical and geographical contexts, such as Rimbaud’s or Zola’s Paris, Dostoevsky’s or Mandelstam’s Russia, or the 16th century French religious wars and the Armenian genocide. Conversations will engage the critical and philosophical work of Hobbes, Goethe, Arendt, Berlin, Derrida or Balibar. What is at stake is how theories of risk and collective agency might reveal new ways of understanding not only acts of violence or massacre, nihilism and collective political affect, collective will and democracy, or totalitarianism and genocide, but also the complexities of their aesthetic, literary, historiographical or sociological representations.

    How sustainable are India’s Smart Cities?

    Critically assessing the projects and politics underpinning the Smart City Mission

    Faisant suite à une première réunion consacrée à la Smart City Mission en Inde en septembre 2018, l'objectif spécifique de cet atelier international est de se concentrer sur les questions de durabilité sociale et environnementale. Sur la base d'enquêtes sur le terrain, les intervenants évalueront de manière critique les expériences de villes intelligentes au fur et à mesure de leur déroulement. Parmi les questions à discuter figurent les suivantes : Comment l'engagement de l'Inde à l'égard des villes intelligentes se compare-t-il à d'autres cas internationaux ? Dans quelle mesure les projets en Inde s'appuient-ils sur des technologies de pointe ? Comment pouvons-nous caractériser la gouvernance et la politique de l'engagement de l'Inde dans l'urbanisme intelligent ?
