Call for papers – CEMS Graduate Conference 2023, 30-31 May (Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies, Central European University, Vienna) (Deadline : 10 April 2023)

Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies, Central European University, Vienna

Call for Papers – CEMS Graduate Conference 2023, 30-31 May (Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies, Central European University, Vienna)

Keynote Speaker: Nükhet Varlık (Rutgers University, Newark)

Humans and Nature in the Mediterranean Landscape 

The consequences of global warming, pandemics, and ecological catastrophes serve as painful reminders of the contingency of human history on its natural environment. These issues have provided a forceful impetus to the study of history with environmental considerations in mind, leading to what scholars coined as an ecological turn. Since Fernand Braudel, several conceptualizations of the Mediterranean and its surroundings as a subject of historical research emphasized how common patterns of climate, geography, flora, and fauna give rise to shared models of ecology, agriculture, and social organization. Subsequently, environmental history, as well as various approaches centering on the environment in several other disciplines, inspired scholars working on a broad range of topics related to the history of the Mediterranean and led to the emergence of various perspectives on the problems of nature, landscape, sustainability, environment, and ecology.  

We would like to highlight chase the broad variety of approaches to these topics and to show that themes of nature, environment, and ecology are not only a concern of environmental historians, but they could serve as shared spaces of encounter between scholars arriving from an array of backgrounds and disciplines. To this end, we would like to encourage the application of any participants whose interest relates to these fields, even if they don’t consider themselves “environmental historians proper.” Also, we hope to grope toward a conceptualization of the relations between humans and nature, which complements the agricultural and rural focus of the discipline with a thematization of urban landscapes and spaces as parts of ecologies.

Call for paper – The Urgency of the Digital (IJIA special issue) (Deadline: June 1, 2023)

CALL FOR PAPERS

International Journal of Islamic Architecture (IJIA)

Special Issue: The Urgency of the Digital

Thematic volume planned for July 1, 2025

Proposal submission deadline: June 1, 2023

This special issue focuses on the critical and urgent use of digital tools, interfaces, media, and methods for the study and design of Islamic architecture, cities, and the built environment. Over recent decades, architectural historians, architects, and other specialists of the built environment have drawn increasingly on digitized databases, digital data, and processing software to reimagine the history, documentation, design, and construction of buildings, gardens, and cities wholesale. Representations of historical, contemporary, razed and never-built structures are now fully realizable, and massive corpora of information that once took many months or years to sort can now be analyzed in seconds. Yet, digital tools, infrastructures, and databases bring their own set of concerns. Databases, like all archives, do not merely contain information, they are information. And as such, they bear the marks of the epistemologies that shape them. Digital files are always remediated, meaning that they are the products of multiple human interventions, just as analogue media are. Some of the platforms that facilitate virtual reality simulations of architecture, cities, and transcontinental migrations enjoy an uncomfortable kinship with the pervasive governmental and private surveillance technologies in use today. Artificial intelligence (AI) has enormous potential to transform the way that architects, city planners, and historical preservationists work, and yet racial, gendered, ethnic, and religious biases in the datasets that machine-learning algorithms employ raise questions about the ramifications of these undertakings. Digital frameworks enable more expansive, multi-layered, and speculative investigations of buildings, cities, and spaces, but they also demand rigorous scrutiny.

Appel à contribution – BIDAYA : revue étudiante francophone en sciences humaines et sociales sur le monde arabe (Date limite : 28 avril 2023)

Dossier thématique : « Arts et pouvoir dans le monde arabe »

Quel lien existe-t-il entre les différentes formes d’expression artistique et de pouvoir dans le monde arabe ? Telle est la problématique que se propose d’explorer le dossier thématique du troisième numéro de la revue étudiante Bidaya.
Le rôle de l’art comme outil de contestation n’est plus à démontrer, les soulèvements dans les pays arabes l’ont d’ailleurs largement mis en exergue. De Tunis au Caire, de Bagdad à Beyrouth, les espaces urbains, tout comme le cyberespace, ont été partout investis par des créations aux tonalités souvent très politiques. L’art, en tant qu’expression culturelle, sociale et politique, peut donc être utilisé de manière à influencer la société et/ou à défier le régime politique en place. Cela a été le cas particulièrement dans des moments révolutionnaires ou de lutte politique, comme la révolution égyptienne de 1919 ou la Guerre d’indépendance algérienne. Le véritable pouvoir de l’art, notamment dans des contextes autoritaires, réside alors dans sa capacité à générer des utopies, à imaginer les possibles et à pousser les individus à interroger leurs conditions de vie. C’est en cela que les expressions artistiques sont non seulement une forme de contestation, mais aussi de mobilisation des populations ; d’où l’attention que leur portent les gouvernements et États de tout temps.
