CfP: Migrations : traces, inscriptions et textualités. Europe / Amérique latine

Mon, 2019-11-11 10:17

Le colloque international « Migrations : traces, inscriptions et textualités » visera à comparer les modalités d’expression et de réception d’un concept politiquement et médiatiquement omniprésent dans le débat public européen et latino-américain. Le concept de « migration-s » sera interrogé d’un point de vue à la fois synchronique et généalogique (dans le sens que Michel Foucault lui a donné).

CfP: France, Allemagne, Afrique : représentations, transferts, relations

Mon, 2019-11-11 10:11

Appréhendé à l’époque coloniale comme le « laboratoire de la modernité » européenne (De l’Estoile 2004, Lachenal 2010), le continent africain est aujourd’hui partie intégrante de l’histoire et de l’avenir de l’Europe mais aussi du monde. Dans son essai Afrotopia récemment traduit en allemand, l’économiste et écrivain sénégalais Felwine Sarr dénonce le mythe occidental du développement projeté sur les sociétés africaines et appelle à décoloniser les esprits de par et d’autre de la Méditerranée pour permettre aux Afriques de redevenir le « poumon spirituel du monde. » (Sarr 2019)

Work in Early Modern Italy, 1500–1800

Mon, 2019-11-04 13:42

Recent decades have seen many economic history books and articles published about working men and women, small and big entrepreneurs, guilds and state manufactures, farmers and journeymen, and children and citizens. Studies have been conducted both at a macro and a micro level, at a global and at a local scale and with regional and national approaches aimed at analysing cultural, social and economic phenomena associated with the world of work. Yet, there is still new ground to be covered.

The Transnational History of French Industrialisation before 1914

Mon, 2019-11-04 11:50

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.

Biographies and Politics: Involvement of Jews and People of Jewish Origin in Leftist Movements in 19th and 20th Century Poland

Mon, 2019-11-04 11:33

The conference 'Biographies and Politics: The Involvement of Jews and People of Jewish Origin in Leftist Movements in 19th and 20th Century Poland' aims to determine the actual Jewish engagement in leftist movements in Poland in the 19th and 20th centuries from the point of view of their individual ideological choices.

Personal histories, family fortunes, and forming political identities will be analyzed using a biographical method. Thus, they will help answer the question of what drove Polish Jews to join leftist organizations.

CfP: « Engels Actuel ». Colloque à l'occasion du bicentenaire de Friedrich Engels (1820-1895)

Mon, 2019-11-04 11:06

Le parcours et l'œuvre de Friedrich Engels demeurent encore souvent dans l'ombre de Karl Marx. L'ambition de ce colloque pluridisciplinaire, organisé les 30 novembre et 1er décembre 2020 à l'université de Strasbourg à l'occasion du bicentenaire de sa naissance, est de rompre avec les idées reçues sur Engels en mobilisant les acquis de la recherche récente en sciences humaines et sociales, afin de projeter sur sa vie et ses travaux une lumière nouvelle.

CfP: Colonisations, revolutions, and reinventions in early America and the Atlantic World (1492-1848)

Mon, 2019-11-04 11:00

The 8th Biannual conference of the European Early American Studies Association invites established scholars, post-doctoral students and graduate students to re-examine the fundamental concept of Atlantic history in light of current research on the themes of colonisations, revolutions, and reinventions, from 1492 to 1848. It is also an opportunity to examine the history of transformations in early America and, broadly, the early modern world, by taking fuller account of scholarship on the politics of primitive globalisation.
