This colloquium aims to provide a clearer comparative view of the social, cultural, and economic transformations of coastal and insular spaces in Byzantine and Islamic Mediterranean (6th – 11th centuries CE). These regions were affected by the ebbs and flows of Mediterranean politics, trade, and cultural engagements in the longue durée between Byzantine rule and the Fatimids.

Call for paper – Travelling Matters: rereading, reshaping, reusing objects across the Mediterranean, Workshop, Haïfa, 8th September 2022 (deadline : april 10th 2022)

The workshop “Travelling matters: rereading, reshaping, reusing objects across the Mediterranean” intends to tackle objects as sources and subjects of the history of cross-cultural encounters in innovative ways. We intend to discuss a most diverse array of objects flowing in all directions and to concentrate on the “second-handedness” of displaced objects: how and why moving objects acquire new functions and new meanings, and with what consequences for the relations between the communities involved? These perspectives demand a broad chronology, extending from antiquity to the present-day, and for the intersection between different time frames, from the relatively narrow scale of individual objects being displaced across the Mediterranean to the much larger one of the histories of their reinterpretation and repurposing.

Call for paper – “Locating Indonesia’s cultural archive; Towards decolonial and intersectional histories of Indonesia”, Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia (deadline : 1 October, 2022)

CfP – “Locating Indonesia’s cultural archive; Towards decolonial and intersectional histories of Indonesia”. Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia Vol. 24 No. 3 (2023).

Submission deadline: 1 October, 2022.

The preparation of this publication is the joint responsibility of Wacana in co-operation with Dr Sadiah Boonstra (Melbourne University) and Dr Caroline Drieënhuizen (Open University in the Netherlands) to gather critical, decolonial and intersectional histories of Indonesia.

After the Indonesian nation-state was born it became the frame for the history of colonialization and decolonization of this country. The rub is that national narratives constructed around specific moments in time and place run the risk of reducing decolonization to a political moment in history; the moment former colonized people took hold of the state. This approach obscures the cultural, political, sexual, racial, violent and transnational nature of colonialism and the way it still affects Indonesian society today.

Appel à contribution -Intimités sous tension, dans et depuis les mondes arabo-musulmans / Call for paper – Intimacies under Tension, From and In the Arab-Muslim Worlds (deadline : april 1st, 2022)

Depuis l’avènement du « tournant affectif », lorsque les sciences humaines et sociales ont porté une attention accrue à l’objectivation des émotions, les travaux sur l’intime ont acquis une nouvelle centralité. Classiquement associé aux affects et à l’entre-soi, aux domaines du privé, de la sexualité et du care, aux processus d’individuation et d’abstraction d’autrui (Giddens, 1992 ; Sennett, 1995), l’intime relève d’une diversité de dynamiques sociales et historiques qu’une littérature fleurissante a permis de mettre au jour (Jankowiak, 2008). En tant que catégorie analytique, l’intime permet d’interroger les visions dominantes et normatives du privé et du public, de comprendre comment elles se reproduisent, sont remises en question et/ou transgressées ; l’intime pouvant en ce sens être pensé comme un processus éminemment politique. Comme qualité de relations de proximité, l’intime permet d’interroger les rapports interindividuels, les relations à l’espace et les processus subjectifs et intersubjectifs de construction de ses bornes.
