The Archaeology of Forced Movement. Conflict-Induced Migration and Refugees in the Mediterranean

Conflict-Induced Migration and Refugees in the Mediterranean

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 15.06.2016

 

Louvain-la-Neuve 16-17th of March-2017
Main conference of the ARC ‘A World in Crisis'?
Migration in general has been essential to the history of mankind and is largely responsible for part of our human legacy and, throughout history, is seen as beneficial e.g. where gene flows and economic impact are concerned. Migration periods are punctuating the histories of many regions and is a phenomenon well-known by archaeologists (e.g. Burmeister 2000; Hakenbeck 2008). In contrast, much less attention has been given to conflict-induced mobility – active or passive (as deportation) –, which forms a particular case within migration studies. Characterized by urgency, unplanned departure, short-term duration and considerable risk, it is more than amply illustrated by the present-day refugee crisis. This crisis, although particularly heavy in its human toll, and inviting both the worst and best of human reactions, is, however, neither exceptional nor unique, only closer at home and better covered by the media than similar events in more distant parts of the world in the last decades. From the point of material studies, this refugee crisis allows an appreciation of the diversity of archaeological evidence accompanying the events: from children's cemeteries, make-shift camps, abandonment patterns along refugee routes, increased border security, hotspot infrastructures, to, what has been described as ‘refugee porn' including Ai Weiwei's installations. The related question is then also how we can record, explore, and understand the materiality of the experience of forced and undocumented migration today, in its diverse forms (Hamilakis 2016)? Without neglecting the variety of push and pull factors, conflict-induced movement processes imply a variety of temporal and scalar categorisations. Temporal since at least three broad episodes may be identified: (1) the forced departure from the natal settlement, where archaeological evidence should be forthcoming illustrative of sudden abandonments and conflict, (2) the passage itself, direct or with intervals, following either maritime and land routes or both, again with potential repercussions on material culture which could imply temporary shelters or intrusive elements, and (3) the arrival or settling at the final destination, prioritising basic survival needs. Scalar too since such movements can be indivual, household-based, extended group-related or massive. Moreover, the impact on the homeland, the frequency of movements, the prior existence of social networks, the nature and scale of transport facilities, the receptiveness of the host country are all elements that need to be taken into consideration and all have material correlates.

29e colloque de l'AFPMA 18 et 19 novembre 2016 - Appel à communication

peinture murale antique, toichographologie, restauration et iconographie

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 1er juin

 

Chers collègues, chers amis,
Le 29e colloque de l'AFPMA se tiendra les vendredi 18 et samedi 19 novembre 2016 à Louvres (Val d'Oise), à l'invitation d'Archéa, musée archéologique de la communauté d'agglomération de Roissy-Pays de France. Les séances se dérouleront dans l'Espace Bernard Dague, espace culturel municipal voisin.
Cette rencontre, la première de l'AFPMA en Ile-de-France, sera l'occasion de mettre en avant les découvertes de décors peints et stuqués d'époque romaine faites dans cette région.
Ce colloque coïncidera avec la nouvelle exposition temporaire d'Archéa, Architecture, décor et confort dans les villas gallo-romaines en Ile-de-France et au nord de la Gaule (titre provisoire), en partenariat avec le musée archéologique départemental du Val d'Oise à Guiry-en-Vexin, qui proposera en parallèle une exposition sur les techniques de construction et de décors des bâtiments publics et cultuels du territoire. Rappelons que ces deux musées exposent déjà des peintures murales du Val d'Oise, qu'il s'agisse de celles du Mont-de-Gif, à Arnouville, pour le premier, et du décor du temple de Genainville, pour le second.
Ainsi, comme à Strasbourg en 2012 et à Toulouse en 2014 – pour ne citer que les colloques les plus récents –, l'AFPMA cherche, grâce à la concomitance des manifestations, à valoriser les résultats de la recherche dans le domaine de la toichographologie tant auprès des spécialistes que des étudiants, du grand public et des scolaires.

Ciceronianism, European Studies, Eurolinguistics

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 31 mai 2016

 

Dear Colleagues,

Ciceronianism, European Studies, Eurolinguistics, a joint symposium of the 'Euro-Linguistischer Arbeitskreis Mannheim' and of the scholars who identify with the aims of '2.000. The European Journal', will be held at RomaTre University on 29-30 September 2016.
The themes of the symposium are:

1) Theodor Mommsen and Cicero. For Theodor Mommsen's (1817-2017) bicentenary.
2) Genesis and Migration of Indo-European Languages- Research and theories on their origin.
3) On the origins of the idea of Europe.
Those who would like to take part should send an abstract of their papers, along with a short c.v, to Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. (Matthew Fox and Ermanno Malaspina for Ciceronianism, P. Sture Ureland for Eurolinguistics, Vincenzo Merolle for European Studies), by the end of May.
This will be the first of a number of symposia, to be held in the coming years, in Rome or at other European universities.
The underlying idea from a philological point of view is that of analyzing the current development of European languages and of selecting a common vocabulary for Europe and the West. From a philosophical point of view, it will be that of promoting the ideas of tolerance and civilization proper to Western democracies.
Therefore, we invite the submission of papers and participation on the part of colleagues who, we are sure, will appreciate our efforts towards the advancement of learning.
Participants could be asked a small entrance fee (of no more that €30 per person), unless we are able to find some form of grant or sponsorship. Sincerely

As an act of learning and teaching, education acquires, in classical culture, a conceptualized form, chiefly, by way of two ideas: paideia among the Greeks and humanitas among the Latins. In Greece, incorporating the quest for an ideal of human excellence, education had a strong public and political connotation, and paideia came to be understood as the learning of live and living within the polis. Philosophy, in that sense, may be seen as a form of paideia. In Rome, influenced by stoicism and epicureanism, education acquired a more private bent, humanitas being understood, from Cicero onwards, not only an instrument for the acquisition of civic virtues, but also for the withdrawal from public life amidst the corruptive effects of power and as an instrument of consolation before the adversities of aging and fortune. Both concepts point, nonetheless, to an education understood as ars vivendi.
The interpretation that, from Petrarch onwards, the Renaissance made of the concept humanitas lead to the development of an education centred, no longer in life, but in the scholarly contact with a corpus of knowledge, becoming an object of teaching comprising what was produced by the ancients in literature and the arts, in philosophy and history, in mathematics and physics. The “problem of the human” was put forward, for the first time, not on the level of life and living, but on the level of concept and doctrine, becoming an object of study and research, a scientific and anthropological realignment with full implications in the development of European thought. The modern reception of paideia, connected to the work of Waerner Jaeger, should be understood in the context of the existentialist turn within European though, form Kierkegaard to Heidegger, by the proposal of going back to a certain concrete art of living.
Inviting to readdress the question of the meaning of humanism and the human, the present meeting – Paideia and Humanitas – proposes to place under discussion the different and many problems that these concepts have raised over time.
