Le réseau ModerNum recrute !

Depuis 2014, ModerNum, le réseau des modernistes francophones de Belgique, se donne pour objectif de promouvoir les contacts interdisciplinaires entre spécialistes de l’époque moderne (ca. 1500-1800). Le but est aussi d’établir des ponts entre les universités de la fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, les musées de cette même fédération, les établissements scientifiques fédéraux ainsi qu’avec les réseaux de modernistes similaires de Flandre et de l’étranger. Comme preuve de son dynamisme, ModerNum s’est vu reconnaître le statut de Groupe de contact par le Fonds National de la recherche scientifique (FNRS) en 2018.

Aujourd’hui, le réseau a besoin de forces vives ! En effet, le comité chargé de coordonner les activités de ModerNum est amené à se renouveler en profondeur, en raison de l’évolution de la carrière des membres (pour la plupart scientifiques temporaires) qui le composent. C’est pourquoi, nous souhaitons, par ce courriel, lancer un appel à ceux qui souhaiteraient l’intégrer dès la rentrée prochaine. Toute personne qui se sent concernée par le projet de ModerNum est potentiellement la bienvenue, qu’importe son institution et sa discipline d’origine.

Afin de faciliter votre choix, voici rapidement présentées ci-dessous les principales activités dont le comité a la charge :

– La tenue et la mise à jour régulière du carnet de recherche (que vous êtes en train de lire). Il s’agit d’une plateforme qui se veut autant une structure collaborative entre chercheurs, par l’actualisation d’un annuaire, qu’un moyen de diffuser l’information grâce à une veille scientifique tournée essentiellement vers la Belgique francophone.
– L’organisation annuelle d’une journée d’étude. À ce sujet, le souhait du comité n’est pas de proposer des sujets de recherche de pointe. L’objectif est plutôt de sélectionner des thématiques transversales et transdisciplinaires qui interrogent l’actualité de la recherche et nos pratiques de chercheurs/-euses modernistes. Pour plus d’informations concernant les journées d’études précédentes : https://modernum.hypotheses.org/journees-detude-de-modernum.

Si intégrer le comité de ModerNum vous intéresse, vous pouvez vous manifester auprès de l’adresse suivante : modernum.info@gmail.com. Une présentation rapide de votre profil de chercheur/-euse et de votre intérêt pour le réseau ainsi que le renvoi vers un cv en ligne ou une page scientifique personnelle (type Academia.edu) suffisent. Que vous soyez, doctorant.e.s, post-doctorant.e.s, scientifiques définitifs ou académiques, tous les profils sont les bienvenus !

La limite du dépôt des candidatures est fixée au 30 août 2019. Nous reviendrons vers vous dans la seconde moitié du mois de septembre. Notez que, lors de la composition du prochain comité, nous veillerons, dans la mesure du possible, à assurer un équilibre institutionnel.

Nous vous remercions tou.te.s, cher.e.s collègues, pour l’intérêt que vous portez à ModerNum. C’est avant tout cela qui permet de faire vivre le réseau !

En vous souhaitant un bel été, ponctué de nombreuses découvertes culturelles et scientifiques,

Le comité ModerNum.

CFP – Migration and Gender : relationships, economic resources and institutions in historical perspective (15th-20th centuries)

Appel à contribution pour un atelier organisé par l’Université de Cambridge

Titre:  Migration and Gender : relationships, economic resources and institutions in historical perspective (15th-20th centuries)

Date de l’événement: 8-10 novembre 2018

Date limite de l’appel: 15 juillet 2018

Lieu: University of Cambridge (UK)

Appel détaillé:

Migration and mobility were common experiences among individuals of the past. If for a long while the young male has epitomised “the migrant”, since the 1980s, a new wave of studies pointed out the relevance of women. In addition, the notion of gender has called into question traditional female and male roles. Nevertheless, many key issues of the history of migration have not been considered according to a gendered perspective, and in turn, many crucial topics for gender history have been overlooked when studying migrants and mobile people.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers working on migration according to a gendered perspective and to a micro-historical perspective from the late Middle Ages to the early twenty century. Its purpose is to encourage a more incisive dialogue between migration studies and gender studies, taking into account the fact that female and male roles were, and are, the result of social, cultural and economic construction. Together with gender, proposals might consider how marital status, age and ethnicity shaped
migration and settlement patterns in specific economic, cultural and political contexts.

In this workshop, migration is not exclusively understood as a lineal process, but also as result of multiple intermediary steps. At the same time, the achievement of permanent settlement was not necessarily the (first) aim of the movement. For all these historiographical questions, a gendered approach has not yet been sufficiently developed: we invite therefore papers taking into account all kinds of mobility and migration, i.e. temporary or seasonal mobility, economic, political or religious migration,domestic/international migration and mobility between the town and its outskirts.

A first group of questions concerns the material and economic resources mobilised by migrants. Proposals might investigate what means women and men used to move and settle down or might study how they manage to maintain – or abandon – assets and/or relationships in their birth community. From another point of view we need to know more about places where newcomers met other people and/or were able to find useful information (i.e. inns, taverns, lodging in private houses etc.).

A second bundle of questions concerns the nature and the extension of social resources newcomers were able to mobilise, to build and to use in migration and/or settlement paths or, at least, during their temporarily stay in the town. Research might investigate how these ties – made up by professional intermediaries, individuals or institutions – influenced, successfully or not, the daily life, the research for a job or a house, the access to credit networks, to poor relief or to other urban resources etc…

A third bundle of questions concerns laws and customs, and more generally authorities and institutions (guilds, charity institutions, citizenship etc…) monitoring and regulating the presence of newcomers. Proposals might consider whether these norms existed, whether they had a gendered impact on the behaviour of migrants, and what where the factors at stake (marital status, age, specific economic sectors etc…).
Please submit an abstract in English (500 words maximum) to bz268@cam.ac.uk
by 15th July 2018 with MIGRATION AND GENDER WORKSHOP 2018 in the subject line.

The selected authors will be required to present their research in a 20 minutes presentation. The language of  the workshop is English.
After the workshop a selection of papers will be considered for publication. Some funds will be available for the translation in English of the selected articles.
Accommodation in Cambridge, a dinner and refreshments will be provided by the organisation. Limited funds for travel will be available.
This workshop benefits of funds from the Horizon European Union’s research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement N. 703737.

Candidature – Post-doctorat “Covering the Ocean: Newspapers and Information Management in the Atlantic World, 1620-1770”

Post-doctorat à l’Universiteit Leiden dans le cadre du projet VIDI-NWO “Covering the Ocean: Newspapers and Information Management in the Atlantic World, 1620-1770”, sous-projet “The rhetoric of Atlantic news”.

Lieu: Leiden, Universiteit Leiden, Institute for History

Date: à partir du 1 mars 2018 (période de 20 mois)

Date limite de candidature: 15 décembre 2017

Appel sur le site de l’Universiteit Leiden

Project description

The project ‘Covering the Ocean’ investigates how early print media covered distant but urgent geopolitical conflicts in the Atlantic world, using newspapers from across early modern Europe. Atlantic news represented a unique challenge, as the tension between the infrequent arrival of information and a regular deadline consistently jeopardized the newspapers’ credibility For more information, see http://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/research/research-projects/humanities/covering-the-ocean.

The Leiden University Institute for History will be appointing a postdoctoral researcher for a period of 20 months, within the NWO VIDI-project ‘Covering the Ocean: Newspapers and Information Management in the Atlantic World, 1620-1770’ led by Prof. Michiel van Groesen.

The candidate will be responsible for the development of the subproject ‘The rhetoric of Atlantic news’, examining and analyzing the rhetorical strategies used in the newspapers’ argumentative discourse. Cooperating closely with the team’s two PhD-students, the postdoc examines the persuasive tone and interdiscursivity in the media by taking into account both the conventions of early modern newspaper journalism and the regular topic shifts to emphasize good news and reduce or ignore undesirable events. Ultimately this subproject answers the question how early modern newspapers employed style and rhetoric to attain and retain credibility.

Key responsibilities

  • Submitting research results for publication to international peer-reviewed academic journals;
  • Attending and actively participating in all the team meetings;
  • Presenting papers at conferences and workshops;
  • Co-organizing conferences and workshops;

Selection criteria

  • PhD in Argumentation Theory or Literary Studies, or a relevant discipline closely connected with the theme of this subproject;
  • Written and oral fluency in English; good working knowledge of Dutch and French

CFP – The Economic History of the Book in the Early Modern Period

The Economic History of the Book in the Early Modern Period

Antwerp University, 4–6 October 2018

Call for Papers

A singular carrier of ideas, information, knowledge, and culture, the book has always held a special place in society. Aspects of production, distribution and consumption have been the subject of thorough study, but analyses of the economics of the book trade remain rare, or less than comprehensive. The special status of the book, its importance for pre-industrial economy as a whole, and the limitations of the sources available seem to have prevented the undertaking of comparative, diachronic and synchronic surveys from the economics point of view. Recently, the topic of the economics of the book trade has come to the fore. Scholars acknowledge the importance of the price of books and its impact on society. Especially in the absence of a system of freely accessible libraries, the price of books imposed an important obstacle to access to information and knowledge circulating in print in the Early Modern Period. It is important, therefore, to study the business models for production, price formulation and market development, starting with information about sales of new and second-hand books sold in shops, at fairs, and at public auctions.

This conference invites papers dealing with any aspects related to the economics of book production, book distribution and book consumption in the Early Modern Period. Potential topics are the cost of book production, the price of unbound versus bound books, the impact of paper and parchment on production costs; analyses of retail versus wholesale transactions; distribution costs for books (packing, transportation, tolls, unpacking, and insurance issues); and purely monetary issues of the book trade related to payments made in different currencies, in cash or on account. In particular, we welcome papers which address the methodological problems of a historical economical approach to handpress books and the different types of payments and currencies involved, in addition to surveys addressing this issue from a comparative point of view (comparison between printing shops, on local, regional or transnational levels). We wish to programme papers going beyond isolated cases, and including, for instance, analyses of wider synchronic or diachronic data sets, which will help to clarify essential trends and factors in the economy of the book in Early Modern Europe.

Deadlines

Please submit proposals for papers (c. 400 words) to goran.proot@gmail.com by 31 January 2018.

You will receive an answer by 15 March 2018.
