Call for application : Chaire d’excellence, LabEx EHNE Research strand 5: The Europe of Wars and the Traces of War

In connection with the LabEx EHNE project (Écrire une histoire nouvelle de l’EuropeWriting a New History of Europe), research strand 5 (The Europe of Wars and the Traces of War) will host, for a two-month period, an academic researcher who currently holds a position in a foreign institution, in order to include him or her in the laboratory’s research, and to contribute to the internationalization of this research.

The primary goal of the LabEx EHNE is to help explain the crisis Europe is currently experiencing by constructing a new historiography intended both for the academic world as well as teachers, citizens, and politicians.
A genuine incubator of research, the LabEx EHNE thus provides an exceptional framework for reflecting on the history of the European continent, while offering to popularize the results of this research with a broad public. The creation of a digital encyclopedia (www.ehne.fr) represents one of its primary objectives in this regard. The project brings together five partner laboratories from three university institutions (the universités Paris 1 Paris-Sorbonne and Paris-Sorbonne, université de Nantes), as well as the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS). It is led by Professor Éric Bussière (université Paris-Sorbonne, UMR 8138 Sirice).

Within the LabEx, research strand 5 explores the central role that war and its aftermath have played in modern European history. Its researchers study wars along with their material, memorial, and mental traces…in an interdisciplinary manner and within a European context that is beyond national histories or overly tight chronologies, which are overrepresented in studies regarding war. They consequently seek to understand war in all of its dimensions, including material, human, economic, and symbolic ones. Their research aims to redefine certain keywords – such as guerilla warfare, small wars, civil war, world war, Cold War – as well as to generate new approaches. It also involves calling into question the paths used for a peaceful cohabitation after a conflict. Is it possible to live together (once again) ? Can the postgenocidal period be likened to a kind of war? What paths are chosen to put an end to conflicts (treaties, reparations, repentance…), or for the process of rapprochement and reconciliation? Researchers also reflect on the traces left by conflicts, both collective ones such as memorials, and individuals ones such as testimony. These questions and many others are explored through ten evocative themes: occupations, displacement, memorialization, reconciliation, victors/vanquished, reparations, representing war, when war disrupts gender, violence, objects, judging war.

 

Candidates should show in their applications what their research could contribute to the collective project of LabEx EHNE research strand 5. We will pay special, but by no means exclusive, attention to candidates that plan to develop one of the three following subjects: war and economy, war and law, combatants in war.

The selected candidate must organize a study day, write encyclopedia entries (at least two, www.ehne.fr), and participate in/organize conferences or seminars in connection with the research strand 5.

Requirements for eligibility :
– researchers holding an HDR (habilitation à diriger les recherches) or an equivalent diploma, affiliated with a foreign institution
– Strong mastery of French and/or English

Internationale démocrate-chrétienne

Auteur-e-s

Les Nouvelles Équipes internationales (NEI), constituées à Liège en 1947, et les rencontres qui réunirent à Genève dans le plus grand secret, entre 1947 et 1955, les principaux dirigeants de la démocratie chrétienne européenne occidentale ont constitué des lieux d’échanges et de dialogue importants. Dans le contexte de la guerre froide naissante, elles ont joué le rôle d’une Internationale de la démocratie chrétienne « avant la lettre » qui a « facilité » l’avancement du processus d’intégration européenne.

Origines du « modèle social européen »

La mise en place des premières politiques sociales avant la Grande Guerre constitue un des moments forts de l’histoire de l’Europe : la consolidation des États-nations n’éclipse pas les réflexions quant à l’élaboration d’un « modèle social européen ». Malgré les hésitations constantes de cette fin de siècle, entre affirmation de caractères nationaux et volonté de coopération, s’esquisse, au prisme de congrès, de conférences, d’échanges scientifiques et culturels, les contours d’une « nébuleuse réformatrice » dépassant les frontières nationales.
