De Yalta à la chute du mur, le partage du monde en ce l’on appelle alors des « zones d’influence », exacerbe, en plusieurs endroits et sur tous les continents, les tensions politiques et militaires. Dans les pays sous emprise soviétique ou américaine, des artistes, femmes et hommes, confrontés à la censure ou menacés dans leur propre pays, se voient contraints à un exil plus ou moins volontaires. Parmi ces artistes, certains sont accueillis en France au titre d’exilés politiques.
In general, narratives about the end of the USSR focus on domestic dimensions of the disintegration of the Soviet Union or discuss reasons and consequences of the Soviet decline in the context of Cold War history.
Both perspectives are highly relevant for an interpretation of the events of 1991 and their consequences. Nevertheless, they too often obscure the view on other essential international and global perspectives.

Gleiche Rechte für alle Menschen aller Geschlechter: Das galt lange als ein zwar noch nicht erreichtes, aber unumstrittenes Ziel. Doch diese Einigkeit ist in letzter Zeit brüchig geworden – der Einsatz für Frauen- und Geschlechterrechte wird von unterschiedlichen Seiten als „Gender-Ideologie“ kritisiert.

CfP: Datafication in the Historical Humanities: Reconsidering Traditional Understandings of Sources and Data
The Fifth Annual GHI Conference on Digital Humanities and Digital History will revolve around the concept of “datafication,” that is, the production of and the shift toward digital representations of historical sources as a prerequisite for storage, access, and analysis, not to mention their transmission and publication online.
In recent decades, studies have argued persuasively that armed conflict and nationalism are firmly linked and many scholars regarded war as one of the main drivers of nation-building. As historians have shown, armed conflict can be used to strengthen the kind of group cohesion on which the concept of the nation relies and also to accelerate the cultural and political processes through which ethnic boundaries (literal and figurative) are drawn.
The Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 is widely acknowledged to have been a cause of intense political, social and cultural conflict, a shaping element in modern French and German nationalism, and a significant factor in international tensions prior to 1914. The 150th anniversary in 2020-21 provides an opportunity to re-evaluate the impact of the Franco-Prussian War as a turning-point for Europe.
