    Thinking social ties in Iberian America

    Languages, experiences and temporalities (16th-21st centuries)

    De l’époque de la Conquête et de la colonisation jusqu’à nos jours, les liens sociaux ont été extraordinairement intenses, complexes et conflictuels en Amérique ibérique. Il est possible d’explorer le langage social de la solidarité et de la désunion, et de se demander comment, depuis la fin du XIXe siècle, les sciences sociales et la psychologie sociale ont oscillé entre discours, enquêtes et conceptualisations selon une tentative toujours renouvelée de rendre compte des spécificités, des pathologies et des adaptations de sociétés de plus en plus diversifiées. En tant qu’élément substantiel du lien social, la mémoire collective peut être abordée selon une perspective historiographique qui explore la diversité de ses motifs et de ses manifestations tout au long des cinq derniers siècles.

    Portraits and self-portraits of authors : Picturing writers

    Revue « Savoirs en prisme »

    L’écrivain est devenu l’objet de représentations visuelles dont la multimodalité même fait sens. Le numéro 12 de la revue Savoirs en prisme invite les contributeurs à réfléchir au transfert du réel à l'imaginaire, voire au légendaire, d'écrivains réels. On pourra aborder ce transfert dans toute sa diversité, se demander comment la mise en images de l’auteur dans le paratexte fait récit, choisir de s’attacher à la mise en livres de l’auteur historique ou encore à son exposition dans un musée. L’auteur peut aussi se mettre en images lui-même : qu’advient-il lorsqu’il se met en scène dans une autofiction visuelle ? Quelle est la portée éditoriale, poétique, esthétique, culturelle ou médiatique de cette mise en images ?

    Envisioning Latin America: Power and Representation in audiovisual (re)productions

    Forma Revista d'Estudis Comparatius. Art, Literatura, Pensament

    This issue seeks to critically address power structures in audiovisual (re)productions in and from Latin America and discuss how these play a role in the societal construction and representation of individual and collective identities, the ‘us’ and the ‘other’. By doing so, it aims at understanding how these representations – and broader discourses associated therewith – can be critically examined through media productions (cinema, television, radio, photography etc.) and their use as historical sources.

    The First World War in the Caribbean - publication of a collective work

    Publication d'un ouvrage collectif

    Le livre sera consacré à l'impact de la première guerre mondiale dans les Antilles. La première guerre mondiale a donné lieu à un grand nombre de recherches universitaires. Elle représente une rupture fondamentale dans l’histoire du XXème siècle. Comme le signale George-Henri Soutou la Grande Guerre a été la « matrice du XXème siècle ». Même des territoires très éloignés des tranchées et des champs de bataille européens furent durablement ébranlés par les conséquences de ce conflit. L’Australie commémore toujours la bataille de Gallipoli, au Canada les batailles de Vimy ou de Passchendaele font partie de la mémoire collective, des historiens ont montré quels ont été les implications de cette guerre dans les colonies africaines et asiatiques. En revanche, la mémoire des pays latino-américains était jusqu’à récemment incomplète.

    What remains of postmodernity?

    Since the 70s, the word postmodernity has articulated a tendency, a state of mind, and a condition that resists conceptualization or complete definition. Although the intellectual community has agreed to situate J. F. Lyotard and his key work, The Postmodern condition (1979), as the origin of the debate on this phenomenon, the truth is that the literary theorist Ihab Hassan had already used the word systematically in 1971. Since that date, the notion has spread across the fields of Literature, Architecture, Visual Arts, and the Social Sciences. These are two of the problems that one faces when approaching the surface of the postmodern phenomenon: its lack of definition and its ambiguous periodization.

    Power and media, media power Insights on the Americas

    Insights on the Americas

    For its 11th issue, RITA proposes to interrogate the links between power and media in the Americas. Several areas of debate can be suggested, although they should not be considered as exclusive. Articles making a critical analysis of official media as well as opposition media, in varied historical and geographical contexts, will of course be welcome. Other articles may deal with the treatment of popular movements by the media. Critical reflections on the relationship between media and economic power are also encouraged. The Thema section can also include analysis of the current diversification of information media by focusing, for instance, on the emergence of “alternative” media on the Internet, or on the power of fake news over the construction of collective representations.

    The Transatlantic Embrace: Spanish Civil War in America’s Intimate Distance

    "Forma" Revista d'estudis comparatius. Art, literatura, pensament

    Spanish Civil War has been studied under its multiple angles. This can also be said about the literature concerning this topic: novels, poems, and all literary forms generated by this armed conflict (both by Spanish and foreign intellectuals) have been commented by academic criticism from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. However, fewer approaches have set the axis of their critical focus on the importance of the Spanish conflict in America and its decisive relevance as a part of a phenomenon that is also American. This special number of the FORMA journal sets out to give a voice to all types of contributions able to shed a new light on this fundamental aspect of the war, whose causes and consequences are clearly rooted in Spain, but whose horizon overflows the peninsular and continental borders and requires an inevitably transatlantic point of view.

    Sedition and Revolt in Modern European Political Thought

    As part of the ANR project “Cultures of Revolts and revolutions in Europe”, we wish to bring together international contributors in a discussion of the european political thought brought about by various uprisings between the end of the Middle Ages and the modern era, whether it be reflections over a particular event, or more general considerations over the causes of sedition and protest movements, the means to prevent or suppress new episodes, and their adverse – or regenerative – effects.

    Cuba, land of refuge

    Trop souvent considérée exclusivement comme une terre dont on sort, l’île de Cuba est généralement observée comme une terre dont on s’exile. Or, c’est oublier que, au moins depuis 1492, c’est une terre vers laquelle on converge, on arrive, on émigre, on s’asile et on se réfugie. Cuba est donc aussi une terre d’accueil et d’asile. Le but de ce colloque est d’envisager, dans une perspective historique (celle des faits et des idées), Cuba comme une terre d’asile sur trois étapes chronologiques : 1802-1898, 1902-1959, 1959-2016. On s’interrogera pour savoir jusqu’à quel point, depuis le XIXe siècle, la réalité insulaire et la position géopolitique particulière de l’île (objet de convoitise entre divers empires, située à la frontière entre le monde latin et anglo-saxon, etc.), ont été des constantes qui ont marqué l’histoire et la construction nationale cubaine ; ou si au contraire, la rupture de 1959 permet l’avènement d’un nouveau schéma politique dans les rapports induits par l’évolution des relations internationales dans le cadre de la Guerre froide.

    Boethius revisited

    The reception of his works and his influence on European literature from the Middle-Ages to the present time

    With the contribution of specialists in several branches of humanities, our purpose is to bring to light some neglected or partially studied aspects of this great classical thinker and exemplary figure of scientific eclecticism, who played a great part in the universalization of knowledge. We will pay special attention to the way in which Boethius’ scientific and cultural legacy was included in the works of other European authors, and was renewed according to the feelings, anxieties and aspirations particular to every age and historical context.

    Purity and Impurity

    Hamsa. Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies, nº 2

    “Purity” and “Impurity” establish themselves as structural categories in both Islam and Judaism, embracing dimensions as diverse as the body, food, clothing and even space itself. The 2nd issue of the journal Hamsa will be devoted to this wide-ranging theme, seeking to obtain diachronic historical perspectives. To this effect, we aim to promote the analysis of interfaith relationships, in those instances where purity and impurity are projected in contacts with the Other. Those dimensions concern not only the minorities, but also affect Christianitas itself, through interiorization of these concepts and their application to minority communities (as is the case, for example, with limpeza de sangue - “cleanliness of blood”).

    Empire of letters and Tigers of parchment

    International Medieval Congress

    Script is not a neutral communication medium. Scripts were particularly used throughout the Middle Ages to stage the idea of Empire, power and domination. The writing has the ability to connote authority and Empire and to inspire respect. On the other hand, the scriptural domain is a world in itself with its coherence and history. The idea of an ‘Empire of letters’ may have emerged within this world too. Both parts of this “empire of letters” are relevant for the palaeographical sessions on the specific thematic strand of ‘Empire’ organised at the International Medieval Congress 2014 in Leeds and sponsored by Apices and Cap Digital.

    Thinking rights in Latin America in the 20th century

    This conference purports to think about the right-wing in twentieth-century Latin America. We shall seek to discover whether the current Latin American right-wing movements are merely the prolongation of XIXth century conservatism, or if a series of events might explain the emergence of new actors in the XXth century. This will enable us to enquire into which geographical scale - national or continental - is relevant when examining this concept. We expect papers from scholars in various social sciences, based on monographic and comparative historical examples. Our purpose is to historicize the concept and the object.
