Appel à communication : Colloque « Marges impériales en dialogue »

Échanges, transferts, interactions et influences croisés entre les espaces post-coloniaux francophones et la périphérie soviétique européenne dans la seconde moitié du XXe siècle

Colloque international d’histoire.

Dates : 30 et 31 mai 2019.

Lieu : Université de Pécs (Hongrie).

Comité d’organisation : Krisztián Bene (Université de Pécs), Matthieu Boisdron (Université de Nantes), Gwendal Piégais (Université de Bretagne occidentale), Géza Szász (Université de Szeged).

Comité scientifique : Michel Catala (Université de Nantes), Benoît Henriet (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), László J. Nagy (Université de Szeged), Sergiu Miscoiu (Université de Cluj).

L’année 1947 marque à la fois l’amorce de la satellisation durable de l’Europe médiane par l’URSS et le début d’un processus de décolonisation qui affecte les puissances européennes occidentales et qui révèle concomitamment leur marginalisation sensible sur la scène internationale.

Dans ce nouveau monde qui émerge, les deux superpuissances américaine et soviétique affirment des valeurs profondément anticolonialistes sans paradoxalement renoncer à des politiques étrangères « ingérantes » pour ne pas dire elles-mêmes impérialistes.

Les espaces post-coloniaux, soudainement libérés de l’essentiel de l’emprise politique européenne, deviennent le lieu et l’enjeu des projections d’influence et des déploiements de puissance des deux blocs, souvent en concurrence avec les anciennes puissances coloniales qui souhaitent garder la mainmise sur leur ancien pré-carré. L’importance de la lutte d’influence qui s’y joue révèle notamment la forte polarisation du système international. En conséquence, les espaces post-coloniaux deviennent les terrains les plus chauds de la guerre froide. En Europe médiane, les nouvelles démocraties populaires sont formellement souveraines. Toutefois, la mise au pas stalinienne et la mise sous tutelle soviétique par le « grand frère russe » n’en ont pas moins ramené ce principe à des indépendances de façade, voire de pure forme.

En revanche, dans ce nouveau rapport de domination, les acteurs – tous formellement autonomes et émancipés – conservent une relative marge de manœuvre. Il est ainsi légitime de s’interroger sur la nature des rapports qu’entretiennent entre eux les États de ces marges impériales. Trouvent-ils dans le dialogue qu’ils nouent un moyen d’affirmation de leur indépendance et de leur souveraineté ? Celui-ci constitue-t-il un outil pour desserrer l’étau d’une certaine forme d’assujettissement ?

L’objectif de ce colloque est ainsi d’étudier les relations entre les démocraties populaires de l’Europe centrale orientale et balkanique et les États post-coloniaux francophones en croisant les regards et les archives. Les communications proposées s’intéresseront à la coopération diplomatique et militaire, policière et judiciaire, culturelle et universitaire, financière et économique ; que ces relations soient bi ou multilatérales.

Les communications traiteront essentiellement des anciennes colonies belges et françaises d’Afrique dans leurs relations avec l’Albanie, l’Allemagne de l’Est, la Bulgarie, la Roumanie, la Hongrie, la Pologne, la Tchécoslovaquie et la Yougoslavie. Néanmoins, celles qui porteraient sur les anciennes colonies de la Fédération indochinoise ou sur les républiques socialistes soviétiques d’Ukraine, de Biélorussie, de Moldavie, des États baltes (Estonie, Lettonie, Lituanie), du Caucase (Arménie, Azerbaïdjan, Géorgie), voire d’Asie centrale (Kazakhstan, Kirghizistan, Ouzbékistan, Turkménistan, Tadjikistan, y compris Afghanistan) seront également les bienvenues.

Modalités

Les propositions de communications (3 000 signes maximum) seront accompagnées d’un CV n’excédant pas une page A4 et devront être envoyées avant le 20 janvier 2019 à : matthieu.boisdron@univ-nantes.fr.

Les frais d’hébergement et de restauration seront pris en charge.

Les frais de transport (billets d’avion) ne pouvant hélas pas être couverts, les participants sont encouragés à solliciter leurs établissements ou leurs laboratoires de rattachement afin d’obtenir le financement de leur déplacement.

Le transfert pour rejoindre le lieu du colloque depuis l’aéroport de Budapest sera assuré (aller et retour).

Call for paper: Gender Relationships between Occupiers and Occupied during the Allied Occupation of Germany (1945-1955)

Date and venue: 6-7 June 2019, Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies(FRIAS), Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (Germany)

There is currently a renewed interest in the Allied occupation ofGermany after 1945 and in military occupation in general. Concerning the occupation of Germany after 1945, there is a lot of work dedicated to its economic, political and cultural dimensions. More oriented towards the “history from below”, current research questions the daily life of military occupation, the places and forms of encounters between occupiers and occupied, covering a whole range of interactions from conflicts or confrontations to various forms of cooperation or fraternization. This type of questioning highlights actors to whom historiography from above is often blind: ordinary soldiers, the civilian population, improvised mediators, men, women, and children.

At the same time, a historiographical trend is developing, which observes the social and cultural history of war phenomena, including transition periods such as war entries and ends of war. More recently, the history of bodies, emotions and sensitivities in wartime has been explored. While the centenary of the First World War was an opportunity to make progress on this front, much remains to be done on the Second World War. Waged as an all-outwar, it has affected sensitivities, bodies, and emotions in a particularly sensitive way.

On the basis of these two observations, we wish to converge these trends in the workshop “Gender Relationships between Occupiers and Occupied during theAllied Occupation of Germany (1945-1955)”. With regard to annexation, military occupation “introduc[es] the notion of greater protection for populations under the control of a foreign army”.[1] While during the 19thcentury, customary rules governed occupations, the Hague Convention of 1907defined the concept, and imposed on the occupying army the task of maintaining order in keeping with the laws in effect in the occupied country. The GenevaConventions of 1949, supplemented by the 1977 Protocols, then emphasized the protection of individuals. Nevertheless, “the reality of military occupations is generally marked by violence against populations”[2] and often even begins with a regime of terror, which then gives way to appeasement and a more controlled regime.

In this wide gap between protection and violence, we wish to study the modalities of non-voluntary cohabitation implied by the military occupation inGermany after 1945. By cohabitation, we mean both material cohabitation, which implies the reorganization of spaces (stationing of ordinary soldiers in schools, inns, etc.; requisition of houses, apartments or rooms for officers; places of supply and entertainment reserved for occupiers, etc.), and physical cohabitation between male occupiers, winners and holders of many privileges, and occupied of both sexes, defeated and in a situation of legal, economic, and moral inferiority. As a result, the relationship between occupiers and occupied is by definition based on a fundamental inequality between the two parties and characterized by the superiority of the occupiers over the occupied.

The workshop aims to answer the following questions in particular:

  • What types of interactions took place between the men of the occupying troops and the Germans?
  • What types of relationships between men – members of the Allied occupation – and local women did the military occupation framework allow? Has the non-voluntary promiscuity in cases of shared housing with the occupier encouraged fraternisation or, on the contrary, stirred up resentment?
  • How have military administrations reacted to the many violations of the ban on fraternization and to what extent have they intervened in this area?
  • Under what circumstances have acts of sexual violence occurred, and to what extent have they been punished? Has there been any recognition of this specific experience of war violence?
  • Beyond the gender category, what categories (nationality, ethnicity, age, social origin, military rank, urban or rural population, religion, etc.)influenced the relationship between occupiers and occupied and how?
  • What were the views of the post-war societies on the relationship between the occupiers and the occupied and with what consequences?
  • How were women who have given birth to a “child of the occupation” as a result of either rape or consensual sexual intercourse perceived and treated in post-war German society?

Proposals addressing methodological or conceptual aspects are welcome, as well as case studies and studies comparing areas with each other.

The workshop is a Franco-German initiative and aims to bring together experts on the Allied occupation in Germany after 1945. This call for contributions is addressed to young and experienced researchers. The travel and accommodation expenses of the speakers will be covered. The working language is English.

Proposals for contributions, containing a title and a short description(400 words), accompanied by a short CV (max. one page), should be sent by 1 February 2019 to: anne-laure.briatte@sorbonne-universite.fr

Appel à contribution : « L’histoire intersectionnelle »

Colloque du 10 au 12 juillet 2019, à l’Institut d’études avancées de Fribourg (FRIAS), Albert- Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg.

L’histoire intersectionnelle. Pertinence. Potentiels. Limites.

Dr. Anne-Laure Briatte, Institut d’études avancées de Fribourg-en-Brisgau (FRIAS/SorbonneUniversité et LabEx EHNE), Miriam Bräuer, Doctorante (Département d’histoire de l’Université de Fribourg, AG Genre de l’Académie des hautes études internationales (IGA) Fribourg, PD Dr.Isabelle Deflers (FRIAS/ Département d’histoire de l’Université de Fribourg), Mirjam Höfner, Doctorante (Institut d’histoire de l’Université de la Bundeswehr, Munich), Dr. Christa Klein(Centre d’anthropologie et des études de genre (ZAG), de l’Université de Fribourg), Dr. Nina Reusch (Institut des Sciences historiques Friedrich Meinecke, FU Berlin), Dr. Marie Muschalek (Département d’histoire de l’Université de Fribourg)

Date limite: 26.02.2019

L’intersectionnalité est un concept de recherche interdisciplinaire utilisé pour l’analyse des rapports d’inégalité sociale et de domination dans leurs enchevêtrements. Ces inégalités sociales sont dues à des facteurs générateurs de différences tels que la « race », la classe sociale, le sexe, le handicap, le corps, la religion, la nationalité, l’origine, l’espace, etc.L’approche intersectionnelle explore leurs interdépendances sociétales dans leurs spécificités historiques et contextuelles. Le terme « intersectionnalité », inventé en 1989 par la juriste américaine et cofondatrice de la théorie critique de la race (Critical Race Theory) Kimberlé Crenshaw, est devenu le nouveau mot à la mode de la recherche sur le genre dans les années1990 et est discuté depuis une dizaine d’années aussi dans les sciences historiques, “souvent un peu plus ‘lentes’” que les sciences sociales à s’approprier de nouveaux concepts.

Lors du colloque Histoire intersectionnelle. Pertinence. Potentiels. Limites, nous souhaitons discuter de travaux réalisés dans le domaine de l’histoire, qui s’inscrivent dans une perspective intersectionnelle et nous demander :

  1. dans quelle mesure des travaux de recherche ont déjà été réalisés dans une perspective intersectionnelle avant que le terme ne soit apparu (tradition / innovation)
  2. pourquoi le concept d’intersectionnalité dans le contexte français, allemand et international est si important aujourd’hui et comment les chercheurs et chercheuses se le sont approprié (actualité / réception)
  3. quels potentiels offre ce concept pour la recherche historico-empirique (potentiels / déficits)
  4. comment les concepts sont modulés et développés dans leur application pratique (adéquation / appropriation)
  5. dans quelle mesure les résultats de la recherche intersectionnelle nous invitent à réviser des interprétations historiques traditionnelles (impact)
  6. quelles nouvelles limites rencontrent les études historiques intersectionnelles etquelles critiques leur sont opposées (critiques / perspectives)?
  7. si les études intersectionnelles nécessitent de nouvelles formes de coopération(pratiques de recherche, interdisciplinaire, internationale, globale).

Le colloque émane d’un projet de coopération franco-allemande et bénéficie du soutien financier du Frankreich-Zentrum et de l’Institut d’études avancées de l’Université de Fribourg-en-Brisgau (FRIAS), du centre d’anthropologie et des études de genre (ZAG) de l’université deFribourg-en-Brisgau, de l’AG Genre de l’Académie des hautes études internationales (IGA) deFribourg-en-Brisgau. D’autres institutions sont sollicitées (réponse à venir) : le ArbeitskreisHistorische Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung (AKHFG), la Délégation pour la promotion féminine de la FU Berlin, le programme Procope structurant 2019 et le groupe de rechercheGenre & Europe du laboratoire d’excellence LabEx EHNE « Écrire une histoire nouvelle del’Europe ». Les langues de travail sont le français et l’allemand.

Cet appel s’adresse aux chercheurs et chercheuses de tous les niveaux de qualification effectuant des recherches en histoire dans une perspective intersectionnelle. Nous pouvons si besoin proposer une garde d’enfants pendant le déroulement du colloque. Les frais de déplacement et d’hébergement des intervenant.e.s seront pris en charge. La participation de personnes de couleur, de personnes avec un handicap ou avec d’autres facteurs de marginalisation est expressément souhaitée.

Nous vous prions de bien vouloir soumettre vos propositions, avec un titre et un résumé (400mots maximum), accompagnées d’un bref CV (une page maximum) avant le 26.02.2019 à christa.klein@geschichte.uni-freiburg.de.

Call for Papers: ‘Exile, Gender, and Family in the Nineteenth Century’

Closing conference of ‘AsileuropeXIX’, sponsored by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche

5-7 September 2019 in Reims, France

The forced migrations of the long nineteenth century, which caused hundreds of thousands of people to abandon their homes and construct new lives abroad, have recently been the subject of a rich historiographical revival and recognized as a truly global phenomenon. They reshaped the political and social landscapes not only of the spaces that exiles departed, but also those through which they passed and where they were finally welcomed. The classic image of these exiles is that of a heroic man, beleaguered by a hostile political order that he resisted through migration and expatriation. Though this masculine picture remains predominant, both in popular perceptions of the nineteenth century and in the work of many historians of the subject, the reality was much more complex. Men did not goin to exile alone; women and children, though often ignored, played major roles in these winding, transnational migrations.

This international conference will investigate the history of exile through the lenses of gender, generation, and age, with a particular focus on women’s history and the history of the family. Papers are welcome that address these and similar questions:

  • How can exile in the nineteenth century be interpreted not just as political migration, but as a phenomenon that shattered families and scattered their members across the globe? How did such individuals respond to their dispersal(through attempts to reunite, written correspondence, financial transfers, etc.)?
  • To what extent did the departure of exiles – who were most often men – lead women to assume new political, economic, and social roles? How did women thus separated from their fathers, husbands, partners, or brothers, take charge of the education of children, the running of households, or the protection of family assets threatened with sequestration or confiscation?
  • Women also often followed their husbands or partners into exile and the conference will concern itself with the relationships of couples in exile. Other women migrated alone, often finding a new autonomy through this experience.Without wanting to simply create a gallery of exiled heroines, we hope to trace the paths of hitherto anonymous women who, in being forced to leave their countries, reinvented themselves abroad. We will also investigate the gendered roles that often devolved onto women in exile, including such activities as providing medical care to sick exiles, making flags for political events, or organising charitable activities.
  • Children constitute another often neglected group amongst the exiles of Europe and the world in the nineteenth century. What insights can be made about the minors that accompanied their parents on these sometimes permanent voyages?What challenges did those born or raised abroad pose to the authorities in their host societies regarding their future statuses or to their exiled parents in determining appropriate forms of education for their displaced children?
  • It will be interesting to examine how the marital status of women and men, as well as the presence or absence of children accompanying them into exile, affected the types of welcome that exiles received., both socially and officially. How did the presence of spouses and children transform the routes, patterns, and destinations of exile?
  • In approaching exile as a social phenomenon, we hope to investigate the particular dynamics of family life in exile. In what ways did families going into exile collectively impact the trajectories, strategies, and activities of the individuals members of those families? Were exiles living with their families more likely to retreat from political life? Did the needs of such families encourage exiles to remain in their new countries permanently or for noticeably longer than their single counterparts? What specific strategies of integration did families in exile adopt?

The conference will embrace the whole of the nineteenth century, from the emigrations that followed the French Revolution to the eve of the First World War. Papers may address the societies left behind by exiles as well as their destination and host societies, and particular attention will be paid to proposals that cover both ends of these migrations.Until now AsileuropeXIX has concentrated its work on Europe, but it particularly welcomes proposals concerned with colonial spaces and the non-European world.

Paper proposals (of a maximum length of 2,000 characters, accompanied by a one-page biographical sketch and list of the author’s publications) should be submitted by mail at asileurope@gmail.com by 15 January 2019. Proposals will be reviewed and authors can expect to hear back from the conference committee by 1 March 2019. Presentations may be read in either English or French. Texts subsequently requested for collective publication must be written in or translated into French.

Call for papers: The Crimean War, the first european modern war ?

International conference, organized by the 19th century history center, the LabEx EHNE and the Slavs history research center (UMR SIRICE)

So far, the Crimean War has been rather neglected in French military history. It has only been the subject of a synthesis, quite traditional in its views, and was associated with the Second Empire whose trace, according to the historiography of the Third Republic, was to be erased. The strongest and most recent study was written by Alain Gouttman. However, although this work is very scientific and objective, it remains deeply marked by a tropism for the history of the battle. This situation is all the more regrettable as today the Crimean War is being rewritten in other countries, particularly in Britain, in the context of a revised history of conflicts, increasingly studied in a multidisciplinary approach.
Indeed, the Crimean War marked, with the Civil War (1861-1865), a great historical and anthropological turning point in military history, witnessing profound transformations not only in the way of fighting, but also in the relations between societies and war, during and after the conflict.

This conference will aim in putting the Crimean War in this new historiographical approach to military conflicts by highlighting three fundamental aspects:
1) The anthropological approach to modern warfare as a key to understand struggles, strategies, experiences and feelings of combatants and the relationship between war and societies.
2) The transnational dimension, introducing a comparison of the conflict history. The confrontation of cross-sources will make it possible to leave the compartmentalization imposed by purely national approaches. Above all, the Crimean War should not be seen from the West and has to be evaluated, regarding its perception and its repercussions, in the Russian world as well as in the Ottoman one.
3) The sociocultural dimension of the conflict, and its memory. The Crimean War influences the society also because of medical, economical and symbolical involvement of State, army and citizens.

Having in mind this methodological approach, the conference will be structured along four major topics:
I) Diplomacy and war 
Here, it will be about the origins of the war, belligerents’ motivations and consequences of the conflict on diplomacy. The Crimean War will be replaced in a double context that is the one of the so-called “concert of nations” and the other around the Eastern Question. If the religious origins of the conflict may have been overestimated, on the contrary, economic reasons and the control of the Straits, (generally underestimated) could be replaced in the core of European diplomacy issues.

II) Experiencing the war
The Crimean War marks important upheavals in the soldiers’ experience of fights. New weapons and techniques (striped cannon rifle, explosive shells..) and military strategy evolutions (appearing of trench war) increase risks, corporal infringements and lethality. New injuries appear, while the cholera decimates troops. This new context gives birth to new medical structures and initiatives (as shown by role of Florence Nightingale, Valérie de Gasparin and Elena Pavlovna). People were also mobilizing at the back, as demonstrated by the numerous subscriptions raised for helping the families of dead and injured soldiers in France and England or by Anatole Demidov’action in favor of war prisoners in Europe.

III) Economy, society and public opinion
The Crimean War impact exceeds very far away the frame of the military operations. A War economy develops thanks to loans and the rise of war contractors. In the Ottoman case, the military involvement gives birth to the creation of the Ottoman Imperial Bank and then to the the tutelage of European powers on the overindebted Sublime Porte. Societies also live at the rhythm of the war. A real « sacred union » appeared in all the States, well powered by governments who try to mobilize their public opinion against the enemy. Indeed, public opinion is playing an increasing role, reinforced by telegraph and photography.

IV) Pictures, representations and memory
New Perceptions and representations of war emerge and it is useful to refer to cultural and art history and well as to history of collective and social imaginaries. During and after the war, although the heroical officer cult (Saint-Arnaud in France, Gorchakov in Russia) is maintained, ordinary troop soldiers are honored, as demonstrated by numerous monuments dedicated to them. Last the Crimean War has also a very strong memorial dimension, as expressed by toponymy and its place in historical references of nowadays different political leaders.

Call for papers: The War Correspondent in the Latin countries : 1918-1939

International Conference, France – Université d’Angers, May 9-10, 2019
Co-organized with Université Paris Sorbonne and Université Savoie Mont Blanc

What are the foundations and the ideological, political, sociocultural and/or aesthetic and literary expressions which compose the multifaceted figure of the war correspondent during the Interwar Period, particularly in the Latin area – principally Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and their colonies, and Latin America – simultaneously a theater of conflicts and a supplier of correspondents for the rest of the world? How does the figure of a war correspondent differ from that of travel writers ? And to what extent are these two figures comparable or even identical? What were the impacts of the intermediate conflicts of the years 1918-1939 on the renewal of the role and function of war correspondents? And finally, bearing in mind that most of the above-mentioned conflicts were born as consequences of the imperial aims of antiparliamentary regimes with revolutionary designs (colonial wars or anti-colonial resistances, the internationalization of the red, black or brown revolutions, geopolitical tensions between democracies and totalitarian or authoritarian regimes, etc.), could one argue that the war correspondents of this transitional period were the product of these civilizational upheavals; and more particularly, to what extent were they the forerunners of the apprehended disaster of the Second World War, and the Spanish Civil War, – generally considered as its « dress rehearsal »? Although limited to Italy, France, Spain, Portugal (and their colonies) and Latin America, the papers can, of course, explore the question of war correspondents from other geographical areas as well (such as Germany, Great Britain, United States, Soviet Union, etc.), provided they operate within the Latin area.

The abstracts (3000 characters, including blank spaces: French, Italian, English and Spanish as reference languages) must be sent before 1st November 2018 to the following conference organizers :

Call for paper: The Mediterranean of the artists A critical modernity, 1880-1945

Nikos Lytras, The lighthouse, ca 1925-1927 Oil on canvas, 52 x 42 cm National Gallery – Alexandros Soutzos Museum, Athens

Institute for Mediterranean Studies FO.R.T.H. (Rethymno, Greece)
10-11 October 2019

Art historians have long adopted the tools of the history of ideas, exchanges and transfers. They have thus been able to question the division between “center” and “periphery” and to nuance the binary hierarchy “dominant / dominated”, “transmitter /receiver” of influences, in favor of complex cartographies structured around dynamic networks (Joyeux-Prunel, Spring 2014, Fall 2016). Recent research has demonstrated the extent to which political and cultural history affects the transmission of forms and models and modifies representations (Messina & Jarrassé 2012; Fraixe, Piccioni, Poupault 2014). Art historians now take into account the games of mirrors at work in the factory of intersected identities, when the gaze turns towards these places “from where you do not come but from which we have passed” (Joyeux-Prunel, Spring 2016). Such a critical re-reading of national narratives helps to better understand the balance between nationalism – or, even regionalism – and cosmopolitanism and encourages us today to verify the heuristic potentialities of the notion of the Mediterranean in the field of art history.
While it is true that the question of the relationship between North and South has been addressed relatively often, circulations within the Mediterranean basin have been rarely dealt with (Gravagnuolo 1994; Troisi 2008; Maglio Mangone Pizza 2017). However, contrary to the canonical history of a modernity of essentially northern origin, another geography could emerge where the “south” would no longer play the conventional subaltern role, but the far more stimulating one of an active alterity (Other Modernisms 2011; Southern Modernisms 2015) in a much more diverse and multipolar space.

The chronological limits envisaged – 1880-1945 – take into account the widespread presence of a Mediterranean thought of the arts, be they highbrow or lowbrow, fixed to the avant-garde horizon or seeking their “futuro alle spalle” (Pirani 1998), exalting a universalist humanist ideal or pledging allegiance to the imagined third way of fascisms. Drawing on the roots of a popular or national culture, these modernities are characterized by a desire to reconcile with a reconstructed tradition. In the early 1910s, the Occitan regionalist Jean-Charles-Brun could even sketch the features of a “Mediterranean art” which would be the point of convergence of “Saracen” motifs, “Arab types”, Spanish, Byzantine and Lombard influences. This imagined Mediterranean is to be found throughout the first half of the twentieth century, from the Maurrassian evocations to the voyage of CIAM IV in the Aegean (1933), through the humanistic evocation of Valéry and the nationalist exploitation of the myths of “Latinity” and “Greekness”.
This search for a common aesthetic base is genuine; it underlies an uninterrupted dialogue between artists, critics and intellectuals running through the routes, real or ideal, of the Mediterranean.
The attempt to partially recreate this contrasting landscape in the light of a quest for modernity of multiple trajectories may seem a challenge, insofar as the values and goals of the movements involved are contradictory and are still being discussed. Nevertheless, this critical vagueness leaves open the possibility to explore paths that are still too often considered as off-center on a map of avant-gardes mainly polarized between Northern Europe and the United States.
The Sicilian Liberty style, the plastic richness of a Maillol – his Mediterranean (also known as Thought), exhibited in 1905, could be thought of as a manifesto –, the Catalan Noucentisme or rationalist currents inspired by the austere interiors of the fishermen of Ibiza, the Cyclades or Capri: these manifestations and many others, all born of a repertoire of undoubtedly heterogeneous representations, aren’t they but versions of a regressive “return to order” that pledges allegiance to the ideologies of colonialism, academic conservatism and fascism? Is it possible to define better and historicize the vague notions of “Mediterranean South”, “Latinity”, “Mediterraneanity”, Greco-Latin West, “Romanity” or “Greekness” (to cite but the designations we are familiar with)? Which artists, which creations, which “mediators” – art critics, journals, translations – are involved in the production of these images and discourses? To which extent do all these come to enrich the varied spectrum of modernities in the first half of the twentieth century?

The International Conference The Mediterranean of the Artists: A Critical Modernity 1880-1945 is the second stage of a reflection that started in Marseille (MUCeM) on 26-27 March 2018, on the occasion of a meeting entitled Modernisms in the Mediterranean: Artistic and Art Critical Paths, 1880-1950.

Papers for our next conference – The Mediterranean of the Artists: A Critical Modernity 1880-1945 – are expected to focus on the following themes:
– Artistic histories/historiographies of the notion of the Mediterranean.
– Fantasies and representations evoked by the Mediterranean in the field of visual arts.
– Ideologies related to the notion of the Mediterranean as formulated in the field of visual arts: progressive (line of Valéry, Audisio, Braudel, Camus), conservative or even reactionary (identitarian, racist, colonialist…).
– Inter-Mediterranean and North-South circulation of aesthetics, models, artists, critics and art theorists.
– Anti-modernisms: aesthetic ideals drawing on a rediscovered/reinvented Mediterranean past.
– Modernisms: aesthetic ideals that rely on a rediscovered/reinvented Mediterranean to promote a radical renewal of models in order to accompany, even influence and determine the technical, economic and social transformations that occurred at the turn
of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century.

These themes or orientations will constitute, with the conferences of the first meeting in Marseille, the contents of a collective work to appear in 2020.

Deadlines:
– Receipt of proposals (250-300 words) and Curriculm (200 words) : before 20 December 2018. Send

Call for paper: International Conference: The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 and the Challenge of a New World Order

International Conference to be held in Paris, 5-8 June 2019

Under the aegis of the Institut historique allemand (IHA)/Deutsches Historisches Institut Paris (DHIP), LABEX EHNE, Commission d’histoire des relations internationales/Commission for the History of International Relations

The Peace Conference held in Paris in the aftermath of the Great War remains among the most important yet also most controversial events in modern history. Although it is often considered to have made a second global war all but inevitable, it has also been praised for providing the basis for an enduring peace that was squandered recklessly by poor international leadership during the 1930s.

A major international conference will take place in Paris in June 2019 to commemorate the centenary of the 1919 Conference from a global perspective. The purpose of this event is to re-examine the history of the Peace Conference through a thematic focus on the different approaches to order in world politics in the aftermath of the First World War. A remarkably wide range of actors in Paris – from political leaders, soldiers and diplomats to colonial nationalist envoys and trade unionists, economists, women’s associations and ordinary citizens – produced a wide array of proposals for a future international and, indeed, global order. These proposals were often based on vastly different understandings of world politics. They went beyond the articulation of specific national security interests to make claims about the construction and maintenance of peace and the need for new norms and new institutions to achieve this aim. To what extent the treaties and their subsequent implementation represented a coherent order remains a question of debate.

By ‘order’, we mean in the first instance, the articulation and development of systematic ideas, institutions and practices aimed at promoting a durable peace that would deliver security, economic recovery and social justice. This distinguishes thinking about ‘order’ from discussions of ‘national interests’ – though there was of course overlap between these two modes of thinking about future international relations. Second, we are interested in ‘order’ as an analytical concept in its own right. This encourages historians to identify, as Paul Schroeder has urged, the shared rules, assumptions, and understandings about a particular set of political relations and to show how specific decisions reflect the norms of the order.

Emphasising the preoccupation of peace-makers with the problem of world order broadens the scope of the familiar questions and debates that have dominated the literature on the Peace Conference. It also opens the way for posing new questions and for thinking about more familiar questions in new ways. We therefore invite papers addressing the following questions:

1) What were the different conceptions of political, economic and social order advocated at the Paris Conference? What was the relationship between different ideas about the international order, such as a system based on national self-determination and one based on the rule of law? Were there broad overarching conceptions of an international order, such as liberal or socialist internationalism, that could accommodate more narrowly focused ideas such as free trade or labour rights? How did people conceive of the relationships between self-interest and order? What role did power politics play in conceptions of international order? Were the absentees from Paris – notably the Germans and the Bolsheviks – able to shape the debate about the emerging international order?

2) What were the origins of these different ideas about order? Why was there such an interest in the systematic development of particular orders both during and after the war? Who produced ideas about order, and why? What was in particular the role of NGOs and ordinary citizens? Can an approach based on different ‘generations’ of international actors illuminate this problem in new ways? Was the idea of ‘order’ a reaction to international politics before and during the war? Or did it represent a continuity with certain strands of thinking about international politics that pre-dated the outbreak of war in 1914? What was the relationship between the articulation of war aims and ideas about post-war order?

3) To what extent did contending visions of an international order shape the peace treaties? Did the organization and proceedings of the Conference reflect tensions between the national, the regional and the global? What was the role of regional orders in shaping broader conceptions of a new world order? To what extent did discourses concerning new regional orders reflect fundamental changes in the conceptualization of world politics? To what extent were they a repackaging of the more familiar themes of empire or spheres of influence?

4) How were the peace treaties legitimated to domestic and international audiences? Were subsequent negotiations on the implementation and revision of the peace treaties shaped by the profound debates about international politics that took place before and during the Peace Conference? Were conceptions of international order systematically subordinated to concerns about national security? Conversely, to what extent can it be argued that the Paris Peace Conference produced or contributed to a disorder in European politics that led ultimately to the Second World War?

5) What was the impact of the Paris Peace Conference on views of world order based on gender, class and race? How did women, workers and colonial subjects respond to the peace conference and what was its impact on the emergence of alternative voices in international affairs? Whose voices were heard at Paris in 1919 and whose remained silent or were silenced?

6) What political and diplomatic practices were implied in these various conceptions of international order? To what extent did these practices shape the course of international relations after 1919? Did the intellectual debate and political experience of the Paris Peace Conference play a role in shaping a future generation of leaders (such as Jean Monnet and John Foster Dulles)?

Paper proposals
The Conference organizers aim to ensure the conference provides a global perspective on the Paris Peace Conference. We are therefore particularly keen to receive proposals from scholars working on topics pertaining to the non-western world. The organisers anticipate securing limited financial resources to support delegates’ participation in the conference.

The conference languages will be English and French
Regardless of language, all proposals will receive serious consideration.

The deadline for paper proposals is: 1 June 2018
Please send your proposal (abstract in English or French of no more than 500 words) and short CV to:
Axel Dröber: ADroeber@dhi-paris.fr.
