    Napoleon’s Legacy in Culture, Art, and Heritage, 1821–2021

    Napoleon Bonaparte died exactly two hundred years ago on a small island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. He had spent the last six years of his life in exile on St Helena, removed from political and military power, in the unusual situation of being able to try to shape and preserve his own posthumous legacy. He was, in a way, phenomenally successful. Napoleon is an instantly recognisable name to this day, and despite growing efforts in recent years to critically revise his reputation and highlight his role in issues such as the reinstatement of slavery, he has largely managed to escape the same level of historical censure as other infamous military dictators. This is perhaps partly because his name has become such an adaptable brand, standing for an entire era of people, places, and events, as well as a full two centuries’ worth of art, craft, and consumer commodities. While other events marking the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death have weighed his contributions to legislative, political, and military reform, less work has been done to confront his vast material, visual, and cultural legacy. This workshop therefore brings together researchers and museum and heritage professionals to reflect on the enduring material and visual legacy of Napoleon, what our interpretation and use of it means for the future, as well as how it affects our understanding of the past.

    Freedom of expression and freedom of creation in the Central American isthmus

    L’objectif de ce cycle de conférences sera donc d’interroger les notions de liberté de création et de liberté d’expression dans cet espace périphérique qu’est l’Amérique centrale, à partir d’une multitude d’objets d’étude, qu’ils soient littéraires, iconiques, filmiques, historiques, sociaux ou politiques. Il s’agira notamment d’évaluer les éventuelles spécificités de ces notions dans le contexte centraméricain, ainsi que l’impact de la situation géopolitique et culturelle de l’isthme sur les libertés d’expression et de création.

    Political Mobilization in the US: New Stakes and Evolutions

    Les dernières élections présidentielles ont démontré la forte capacité de mobilisation de blocs d’électeurs bien connus depuis le début des années 1980 tels que les chrétiens évangéliques, toujours fidèles au parti républicain, mais aussi d’électeurs dont la volatilité est plus grande, sans oublier la portée de la mobilité démographique. Alors que l’État fédéral continue de se désengager du contrôle des lois et procédures électorales (à la suite de l’arrêt Shelby County v. Holder de 2013), des initiatives sont prises dans ce domaine par les citoyens (comme en Floride avec l’Amendement 4 destiné à réintégrer sur les listes électorales les anciens détenus), mais aussi par les gouverneurs comme les législateurs de certains États pour encadrer ces procédures ainsi que l’accès aux urnes. Dans ce contexte, le record de participation de 2020 et la contestation violente du verdict des urnes marquent un probable tournant pour la démocratie états-unienne. Les trois intervenants de cette journée d’étude, spécialistes de l’intersection entre politique, religion et droits des femmes et des personnes LGBT+, tireront des leçons de cette mobilisation inégalée.

    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

    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.

    "Fake news". Art and information

    Inventing reality - between artistic production and historical enquiry

    Il tema delle fake news è di grande attualità e rilevanza per i mezzi e i fini con cui queste vengono messe in circolazione: esse hanno il potere di alterare la realtà e di far circolare notizie prive di fondamento.Durante la giornata di studi si indagherà la modalità in cui l’alterazione del messaggio è stata assunta come verità nella storia dell’arte, ripercorrendo l’iter del processo artistico e la conseguente creazione delle fake news.

    How sustainable are India’s Smart Cities?

    Critically assessing the projects and politics underpinning the Smart City Mission

    Following on a first meeting devoted to India’s Smart City Mission held in September 2018, the specific aim of this international workshop is to focus on issues of social and environmental sustainability. On the basis of field-based investigations, the presenters will critically assess the smart city experiments as they unfold. Among the questions to be discussed are the following: How does India’s engagement with smart cities compare with other international cases? To what extent do projects in India draw on cutting-edge technologies? How can we characterize the governance and politics of India’s engagement with ‘smart urbanism’?

    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 ?

    Economics, security and politics

    The Chair of Defense Economics and the Institute for Strategic Research (IRSEM, Paris) organize a workshop on the theme “Economics, Security and Politics”. Throughout this day, we will explore the links between democracy, its construction, public opinions and military actions or conflicts. We will mostly focus on the relationships between citizenship and military actions. The term “citizenship” embraces here elements related to public opinion and the rise of nationalism or populism in modern societies.

    Túnez y el Mediterráneo en la Edad Moderna: Identidades, conflictos y representaciones

    Homenaje a Slimane Mostafa Zbiss y Mikel de Epalza

    La historia y la geografía demuestran el importante rol que tuvo Túnez en el Mediterráneo y cómo esto influyó en la creación de su identidad. Su localización en el centro del Mare Nostrum le dio un papel importante, ya sea en periodos de paz o de guerra. En la Edad Media y el comienzo de los tiempos modernos, bajo los hafsíes, Túnez controlaba el comercio subsahariano con Europa y los bienes de los comerciantes del este con los mercados occidentales. Los hafsíes también mantuvieron buenas relaciones diplomáticas con Venecia y los reyes de Aragón... En tiempos de conflicto, en el siglo XVI, Túnez fue un lugar estratégico para los imperios otomano e hispánico.

    Populism and neopopulism in the Atlantic world (Europe and Latin America)

    Definitions and concepts in the light of the political evolutions of recent decades

    Nous assistons aujourd'hui dans une grande partie du monde à l'émergence de nouvelles formes du politique qui, faute de mieux, sont appelées « populismes » ou « néopopulismes ». Que l'on s'intéresse à l'élection de Donald Trump aux États-Unis ou celle de Jair Bolsonaro au Brésil, ou aux régimes de Vladimir Poutine, Victor Orban, la Ligue du Nord et du mouvement Cinq Etoiles, cette évolution politique a très souvent été envisagée comme une déformation pathologique d'une forme politique qui aurait existé sous une forme « originellement pure » : la démocratie libérale. Dans ce contexte où les concepts ne servent plus qu'à nourrir l'invective, il nous a paru important de réunir des chercheuses et chercheurs de différentes disciplines et horizons afin de privilégier des analyses comparatives ou des échanges favorisant les perspectives comparatives.
