CFP: GEORGE RUDÉ SEMINAR IN FRENCH HISTORY AND CIVILISATION

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS / DEUXIEME APPEL A COMMUNICATIONS

GEORGE RUDÉ SEMINAR IN FRENCH HISTORY AND CIVILISATION

Western Sydney University

13th-16th July 2016

(Version en français ci-dessous)

 

We are pleased to announce the 20th George Rudé Seminar in French History and Civilisation, which will be held at the Parramatta Campus of the Western Sydney University, NSW from the 13th to 16th of July 2016.

 

The George Rudé Seminar is a biannual conference that brings together specialists in French history and culture from Australia, New Zealand, and around the world. These seminars recognise the contribution of George Rudé to study of French history and culture in Australasia. Since 2006, a peer-reviewed selection of papers from each Rudé seminar has been published online through H-France at http://www.h-france.net/rude/rudepapers.html.

The Parramatta campus of WSU is one of the most elegant and historically significant sites among institutions of Australian higher education. The campus is located on the traditional lands of Darug people, and is graced by the nearby Parramatta River, which can be followed via a regenerated 35-minute riverside walking-tour from the centre of Parramatta city. The WSU is home to the historic Female Orphan School, one of the very few surviving public buildings of its size dating from the early colonial period. Predating even Hyde Park Barracks, the Female Orphan School is the oldest three-story building in the country.

The Rudé Seminar welcomes 20-minute papers, in English or in French, on all aspects of French and Francophone history and civilisation, from the Middle Ages to the present, for inclusion in the general program whether as individual papers or within group panels.

In addition, we particularly welcome papers addressing the three special themes listed below:

  • the ‘History of French Science, Medicine and Technology’. We welcome scholarship on all aspects of medical practice and research, scientific knowledge, technology and its application, in the long history of all francophone societies.
  • the ‘French Colonial Imaginary’ for which we invite papers on all aspects of French imperialism, colonisation, colonial governance and ideas, Francophone colonial independence movements, post-colonial histories, and legacies of colonialism in recent history, including the history of immigration, racism and ethnic minority movements.
  • digital humanities projects relating to French history. Furthermore, the conference will be preceded by a two day symposium on Digitizing Enlightenment on 12-13 July, for which delegates will also be able to register.

 

These special themes reflect areas of research strength at Western Sydney and, in addition to the conference proceedings, we hope to publish collections of essays addressing all three following the conference.

Confirmed Keynote speakers for the George Rudé seminar include:

Dan Edelstein, Professor of French and of History at Stanford University, author of The Terror of Natural Right: Republicanism, the Cult of Nature, and the French Revolution (University of Chicago Press, 2009), and of The Enlightenment: A Genealogy (University of Chicago Press, 2010).

Mike Osborne, Professor of History at Oregon State University, author of The Emergence of Tropical Medicine in France  (University of Chicago Press, 2014), and of  Nature, the Exotic, and the  Science of French Colonialism (Indiana University Press, 1994).

Anita Guerrini, Horning Professor in the Humanities and Professor of History, Oregon State University, author of Obesity and Depression in the Enlightenment: The Life and Times of George Cheyne (University of Oklahoma Press, 2000), and of Experimenting with Human and Animals: From Galen to Animal Rights (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2003).

Patrick Weil, Director Research at the CNRS, Centre for Twentieth-Cenntury Social History / University of Paris I – Panthéon-Sorbonne,  and author a many renowned works, such as Liberté, Égalité, Discriminations. L’« identité nationale » au regard de l’histoire (Grasset, 2008), et La France et ses étrangers, l’aventure d’une politique de l’immigration de 1938 à nos jours (Gallimard, 2005).

Abstracts of up to 300 words per presenter should be sent to the seminar e-mail GeorgeRudeSeminar@westernsydney.edu.au, together with a 100-word profile of each speaker giving name, professional title and affiliation, by 29 February 2016. General inquiries can be addressed to the same address.

APPEL A COMMUNICATIONS

XX° Séminaire « George Rudé »

Juillet 2016

Nous avons le plaisir de vous annoncer que le vingtième séminaire « George Rudé » se déroulera du 13 au 16 juillet 2016 à l’Université Western Sydney (WSU), Parramatta, NSW, en Australie.

Le « George Rudé Seminar in French History and Civilisation » est un colloque biannuel qui rassemble des spécialistes de l’histoire et de la culture françaises venant du monde entier. Il est dédié à la mémoire de George Rudé et à sa contribution à l’étude en Australasie de l’histoire et la culture de la France. Depuis l’an 2006, une sélection des communications est publiée sur le site internet H-France, suite à une évaluation par les pairs : http://www.h-france.net/rude/rudepapers.html.

Le campus Parramatta de l’Université Western Sydney est un lieu historique et l’une des universités les plus élégantes en Australie. Il se trouve dans le territoire traditionnel du peuple indigène Darug, au bord du Rivière Parramatta. Une promenade aménagée (d’environ 35 minutes) suit la rivière, du centre-ville de Parramatta jusqu’à l’Université, traversant un marais régénéré. Erigé en 1813, le bâtiment de l’Orphelinat pour les Femmes se trouvant à l’université, est un rare exemple d’architecture publique de l’époque coloniale, construit même avant le Hyde Park Barracks de Sydney. L’Orphelinat est le plus vieux bâtiment de trois étages en Australie.

Nous vous invitons à nous adresser des projets de communications, en anglais ou en français, portant sur tous themes dans l’histoire de France depuis l’époque mérovingienne à nos jours, soit individuellement ou en panel. En plus, nous accueillons des communications sur les trois thèmes particuliers:

 

  • L’Histoire de la Science, de la Médecine et de la Technologie, y compris la pratique et la recherche médicale, la connaissance scientifique, et de la technologie dans toutes ses applications dans l’histoire des cultures francophones.
  • L’imaginaire Coloniale Française, y compris l’histoire de l’empire, de la colonisation, de la gouvernance coloniale et de l’intellectualisme colonial, l’histoire des mouvements d’indépendance, l’histoire postcoloniale, l’histoire des immigrations, l’histoire des mouvements ethniques minoritaires et du racisme.
  • Le colloque sera précédé par un symposium sur le thème des Humanités numériques et le dix-huitième siècle, du 12-13 Juillet, auquel les délégants George Rudé peuvent assister.

 

Ces trois thèmes particuliers reflètent les concentrations de recherche à l’Université Western Sydney. En plus du journal de la Société dans lequel une sélection des contributions sera publiée, nous espérons aussi publier une collection d’essais sur chaque thème particulier, suite au colloque.

Résumés ne doivent dépasser les 300 mots et les communications elles-mêmes doivent correspondre à un exposé oral de vingt minutes maximum.

Nous confirmons trois de nos quatre conférenciers principaux:

Dan Edelstein, Professeur des études de français et de l’histoire, l’Université Stanford, et auteur des livres suivants : The Terror of Natural Right: Republicanism, the Cult of Nature, and the French Revolution (University of Chicago Press, 2009), et The Enlightenment: A Genealogy (University of Chicago Press, 2010).

Mike Osborne, Professeur d’histoire, l’Université Oregon State, et auteur des livres suivants : The Emergence of Tropical Medicine in France  (University of Chicago Press, 2014), et  Nature, the Exotic, and the  Science of French Colonialism (Indiana University Press, 1994).
