    Conflits de lieux, lieux de conflits

    αυτό που θεωρώ πολύ ενδιαφέρον στο θέμα, είναι ο συνδυασμός μελέτης διαφόρων τόπων, κι αυτό 'σπάει' λίγο τον περίφημο οριενταλισμό των ημερών μας...


    L'espace des mobilisations territoriales
    *  *  *
    Publié le vendredi 16 janvier 2015 par Céline Guilleux
    Résumé
    Ce colloque s’attachera à questionner les ressorts des mobilisations politiques qui s’inscrivent dans un « lieu », dont il est, tout à la fois, le support, le mobile et le principal enjeu – l’hypothèse générale soumise à la discussion étant que l’espace, en tant que construit social, n’est pas simplement un arrière-fond contextuel des luttes, mais participe pleinement de la dynamique constitutive des mobilisations, autant qu’il se constitue à travers elles. Un privilège sera accordé aux luttes qui naissent d’un hiatus entre les prétentions des pouvoirs publics ou du secteur marchand à maîtriser la destinée d’un espace et les revendications de ses habitants, usagers ou défenseurs.

    From the Caucasus to the Arabian Peninsula: studying domestic spaces in the Neolithic
    Lundi 23 février 2015 | Préhistoire et antiquité | Appel à contribution | Paris (75)
    Under neolithisation scholars understand multiple processes of social and economic transformation which begin at different times and follow regional trends in the Near and Middle East. It is within the complex relational and spatial framework of the household that these shifts in the structure and activities of Neolithic communities are easiest to apprehend and study. The conference will therefore focus on the domestic sphere in order to highlight and understand the polymorphous nature of what we call neolithisation. Various thematic sessions will be held to shed new light on current data: “Impacts of the shift to a sedentary/semi-sedentary lifestyle”; “Organising the house and the household”; “Private space/public space”; “Acquisition, production, transformation and use”; “Eating-Moving”; “Symbolic manifestations”;“The living and the dead”.

    Table et diplomatie du Moyen Âge à nos jours
    Dimanche 15 mars 2015 | Histoire | Appel à contribution | Paris (75)
    L’objet de ce colloque est d’analyser comment s’articulent pratiques diplomatiques et pratiques alimentaires quand la table devient une scène supplémentaire, et parfois principale, de civilités. Il ne s’agira pas de mettre en évidence chaque gastronomie nationale mais plutôt d’étudier le rôle que la table peut jouer lors des rencontres, négociations, achèvement de conférences et, de manière plus générale, dans les processus quotidiens d’échanges. Alors que le champ des études gastronomiques n’est plus en friche, l’analyse des protocoles de réception a fait l’objet de travaux moins nombreux mais particulièrement attentifs à la question de l’alimentation curiale. Il sera intéressant de comprendre la manière dont les cours européennes du Moyen Âge au XXe siècle ont associé la table et la négociation.
    *  *  *
    Publié le mercredi 14 janvier 2015 par Elsa Zotian

    L’évolution des modalités de la réception sera examinée

    • lieux (palais, hôtels, place du village, navire en escale…) ; type de service et protocole ; arts de la table ; association de la musique et des spectacles ; prise de parole (discours et toasts) ; les spécialistes du cérémonial et du protocole ; le choix des cuisiniers et des brigades, leurs liens transnationaux ; la conception des codes d'honneur pour recevoir des hôtes de marque

    Les menus feront l’objet d’une analyse

    • l’ordre des mets ; la prise en compte des tabous alimentaires ; la durée des repas ; le choix des boissons ; la place du vin et la sélection des crus ; la symbolique des plats ; l’iconographie et le design des cartons de menus

    Les comportements spécifiques liés à la table seront mis en évidence

    • les manières de manger (mains ; recours à des ustensiles) ; les tabous alimentaires ; le contrôle de sécurité alimentaire (les goûteurs) ; l’intentionnalité destructrice (utilisation du vin pour délier les langues, empoisonnement) ; le poids de la religion dans l’approche des pratiques de table et l’usage de certains produits ; la sociabilité associée à la table (conversation mondaine, confidence, espionnage, amitié et liens affectifs ; les erreurs d’appréciation ; le mépris des convenances)

    La porosité des cultures alimentaires peut servir de marqueur pour les diverses étapes de la mondialisation

    • l’introduction de nouveaux produits (café, chocolat, thé) ; la découverte des cuisines étrangères

    L’évolution de la présence et de la participation des femmes aux repas diplomatiques sera étudiée

    • rôle et influence des souveraines organisatrices ; rôle des épouses, des courtisanes, des danseuses et des chanteuses

    Le spectacle de la table

    • public du repas, opinion publique et publicité. L’analyse de l’évolution de la mise en scène du repas diplomatique des tableaux de l’époque moderne aux photographies du G 8, en passant par les descriptions littéraires, les reportages dans les magazines, l’analyse des publicités, permettra de comprendre l’évolution des représentations liées à la place que tient la table dans la communication diplomatique

    La place de la table dans la diplomatie économique et la diplomatie d'influence fera l’objet d’une attention particulière

    • les fournisseurs des tables ; les exportations de produits alimentaires et de boissons ; l’influence des styles de réception

    La traduction médiatique de ces moments pourra être envisagée

    • scènes de repas dans les contextes diplomatiques filmés, séquences cinématographiques ; reportages radiophoniques ; littérature

    Approches privilégiées

    Les contributions privilégiées seront celles qui couvriront :
    • Les nouvelles approches de l’histoire des pratiques diplomatiques
    • Les nouvelles approches de l’histoire de l’alimentation
    Disciplines : histoire, histoire de l’art, anthropologie, sociologie, information et communication

    Langues du colloque

    • Anglais et français
    Conditions de soumission Les propositions de communication (500 mots maximum) et un bref Curriculum vitae sont à envoyer à l’adresse suivante : tablediplomatique@univ-tours.fr

    Αθήνα, Μουσείο Ισλαμικής Τέχνης, ένας έλληνας ζωγραφίζει την Ανατολή

    Θεόδωρος Ράλλης. Με το βλέμμα στην Ανατολή11/12/2014 - 22/02/2015


    Ο ζωγράφος Θεόδωρος Ράλλης, με καταγωγή από την Χίο, γεννήθηκε στην Κωνσταντινούπολη και έζησε το μεγαλύτερο διάστημα της ζωής του στη Γαλλία. Το καλλιτεχνικό του έργο, εμπνευσμένο από την Ελλάδα και τη Μέση Ανατολή, διαμορφωμένο στο πλαίσιο του ευρωπαϊκού ρεύματος του Οριενταλισμού και εκτελεσμένο σύμφωνα με την ακαδημαϊκή τεχνική της γαλλικής σχολής, συνέβαλε στη δημιουργία της νεότερης καλλιτεχνικής παράδοσης στην Ελλάδα.

    Η έκθεση αποκαλύπτει το έργο του σημαντικού αυτού Έλληνα ζωγράφου μέσα από επιλεγμένους πίνακες, έγγραφα, επιστολές και φωτογραφίες. Παράλληλα, παρουσιάζει σχέδιά του για την εικονογράφηση βιβλίων, έργα του εμπνευσμένα από τη λογοτεχνία και την ποίηση, αποσπάσματα από το ημερολόγιό του από το Άγιο Όρος, καθώς και επιλογή από την αρθρογραφία του στον τύπο της εποχής.
    Η έκθεση αναπτύσσεται σε τρεις ενότητες: την εισαγωγική με αρχειακό υλικό, την ενότητα «Πίστη στην Ανατολή» και την ενότητα «Το χαρέμι με το λουτρό», επιδιώκοντάς να εξερευνήσει το «βλέμμα» της Δύσης προς την «άλλη» Ανατολή, της οποίας η αναπαράσταση -όπως έχει μελετηθεί μέχρι σήμερα- εγείρει πολλά ερωτήματα και υπόκειται σε συνεχείς ανασκευές.

    Την έκθεση θα συνοδεύει δίγλωσση ομότιτλη έκδοση, της οποίας τα κείμενα θα επιμεληθεί η Δρ Μίρκα Παλιούρα.

    The term dawla madaniyya (civil state) was one of the most often heard during the so
    called ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings across the Arab world and became a ‘floating
    signifier’ invested with multiple notions linked to the relationship between the
    governing and the governed, to citizenship, justice, security, the role of religion
    in state, etc.

    that have emerged locally, regionally and globally around notions such as the ‘New
    Antisemitism’, and ‘Islamophobia’ and how these relate to racialised discourses
    against Jews and Muslims.
