Colloque International « Femmes et stratégies transnationales XVIIIe-XXIe siècles »
les 18, 19, 20 septembre 2008 à l’Université de Cergy-Pontoise
Appel à communications
En insérant l’étude de genre dans une perspective transnationale, ce colloque cherche à mettre en lumière le rôle des femmes dans un monde de plus en plus globalisé, tout comme l’influence de cette globalisation sur la situation et les revendications des femmes. Par l’analyse des passerelles qui permettent le passage du local au global et vice versa, il insistera sur les stratégies qui, non seulement extraient les femmes du strict domaine privé auquel les sociétés nationales les avaient traditionnellement cantonnées, mais plus largement portent leurs valeurs et leurs luttes hors des frontières nationales, les élevant alors au rang d’actrices (légitimes ?) sur la scène internationale.

European Council Conclusions on Migration
At the General Affairs Council meeting on 10 December, EU Ministers adopted Conclusions on mobility partnerships and circular migration in the framework of the global approach to migration. The Council stated that specific partnerships on migration with third countries could contribute to a coherent migration policy which combines measures aimed at facilitating well-managed legal migration opportunities and their benefits with those fighting illegal migration, protecting refugees and tackling the root causes of migration while at the same time impacting positively on development in countries of origin. Mobility partnerships between the European Union, Member States and third countries could be tested by way of a limited number of pilot par tnerships.

Desmarges aux frontières. Les îles méditerranéennes, enjeux de conquêtes et de souverainetés à l’époque moderne
Journées d’études, 25-26 avril 2008

L’intérêt de cette journée d’études, portant sur « Des marges aux frontières : les îles méditerranéennes, enjeux de conquêtes et de souverainetés », est de montrer comment, par quels biais, ces îles sont passées du statut de simple bordure à celui de frontière au sens anglo-saxon du terme, c’est-à-dire des lieux de centralité. Point de mire des puissances, expression de leur défense agressive (fortifications, course, police des mers, contrôle militaire), les îles deviennent, en tant que frontières, des mondes convoités, attaqués, et des espaces aux fonctions militaires hypertrophiées. Subissant toutes les formes de guerre, elles en deviennent des lieux spécialisés.

The future of historic spa towns. The role of cultural heritage in the process of urban revitalisation and re-imaging
Thursday 13 & Friday 14 March 2008

Spa Balmoral-Belgium


The emphasis of the meeting lies on the exchange of theoretical knowledge and practical experiences with tourism development in traditional spa towns (mainly in Europe). The challenges for revitalisation policies are complex; although every place is unique, the options for the future need to be studied in the shared context of a global, dynamic and competitive market.
The objective of this symposium is to stimulate the interest of academic research in comparative studies about traditional spa destinations and to discuss a framework and agenda for joint research projects.

"LANDSCAPES, IDENTITIES AND DEVELOPMENT" conference
Lisbon / Óbidos, Portugal, 1-5 September 2008
see http://tercud.ulusofona.pt/PECSRL/SessionsKeynotes.htm
We are inviting contributions to the following special session: A10 Special Session: EMERGING ENERGIES, EMERGING LANDSCAPES. Energy and landscape are intricately inter-connected. Landscapes embody and are significantly shaped by the energy decisions of previous generations and our own. Before the onset of the industrial revolution, renewable energy was virtually the only type of energy available to humankind (e.g. fire, crops to feed draught and riding animals, sailing ships, watermills, windmills). Their relative importance in our ‘energy mix’ became almost negligible during the industrial age, but renewable energies are currently undergoing a renaissance. Concerns about climate change and energy security have driven energy issues ever-higher up socio-political agendas, and the decisions which we make about our ‘energy futures’ will have far-reaching implications for landscapes, both directly (through infrastructure) and indirectly (by modulating climate change). The proposed transformation of our energy mix towards a much greater reliance on renewables thus greatly enhances the importance and topicality of the landscape-energy relationship. The ways in which sections of society interpret the diverse, diffuse and spatially heterogeneous impacts of (decentralized) renewable energies or contribute to these changes can be regarded as a re-composition of socio-technical links between energy generation and (territorial) identity. The idea underlying this session is that (changes in) the notion, practice and meaning of landscape can be studied through the ‘lens’ of energy developments, and vice versa. The planning and/or sitting processes for renewable energy developments create an opportunity to analyse the social (re)construction of landscape. The session aims to explore landscape-energy issues based on empirical, theoretical or synthetic contributions coming from various countries and disciplinary fields. They might deal with the development of renewable energies (e.g. wind power, biomass) or of more conventional types of energy generation and transmission (e.g. hydro, fossil fuel, nuclear, electricity grid networks), include landscape as a salient dimension and/or consider the ability of theoretical frameworks to capture the multi-dimensionality (i.e. relational, social, environmental, material, spatial, aesthetic) of the process of landscape construction.
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: 10th of January 2008. For discussion or further information, please contact one of the coordinators of the special session: Alain Nadai nadai@centre-cired.frCharles Warren crw2@st-andrews.ac.uk Dan van der Horst d.vanderhorst@bham.ac.uk

The Mobile City conference
27 & 28 February 2008

NAi (Netherlands Architecture Institute) Rotterdam, The Netherlands


www.themobilecity.nl
"The Mobile City" is a two-day conference about locative & mobile technologies, urban culture and identity. The Mobile City brings academics, architects, urban professionals and media designers together to address the question: what happens to urban culture when physical and digital spaces merge?
Keynote speakers are Stephen Graham, Tim Cresswell, Malcolm McCullough and Christian Nold.
Background: The physical, geographical city with its piazza’s, its neighbourhoods and crossings intersects with the ‘virtual space’ of electronic communication-, information- and observation-networks of GSM, GPS, CCTV, UMTS, WIFI, RFID, etc. At the same time, the domain of digital space is increasingly becoming physical, an “internet of things” is emerging. Another example is the rise of 'pervasive games', digital games with a physical component in urban space. Is it still useful or even possible to talk about the city as being only physical? Or about the digital world as purely ‘virtual’ (in the sense of 'not real' or immaterial)? The physical city and the spaces of digital technologies merge into a new “hybrid space”. Hybrid spaces are shaped by the social processes that concurrently take place in digital and physical spaces. What is the influence of these developments on the ideas we have of time, space and place, citizenship and identity?
Conference questions: Locative and mobile media can be understood as interfaces between the digital domain and the city, as bridges between the social processes that formerly took place in more separated domains (digital or physical) but now are spilling over into each other. The Mobile City will ask the following questions:
• From a theoretical point of view, what are useful concepts to talk about the blurring/merging of physical and digital spaces?
• From a critical perspective, what does the emergence of locative and mobile media mean for urban culture, citizenship, and identities?
• From a professional point of view, what does all this mean for the work of urban professionals (architects, designers, planners), media designers, and academics?

Call for Participation - Expanding Citizenship in an Age of Migration
25th – 27th January 2008, Berlin
What is Citizens of Europe? We are a network of people from all over the continent. We believe that European integration is both a fortunate reality and our future. While most discussions and activities still take place in national contexts, we work together on the fields of debate, culture and training in order to contribute to the development of a European civil society. Bringing Europe together

is, for us, a matter of mental and cultural change rather than a technocratic process. Read more

7th Global Conference: Violence and the Contexts of Hostility
Monday 5th May - Wednesday 7th May 2008, Budapest, Hungary
http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/ptb/hhv/vcce/vch7/cfp.html
This multi- and inter-disciplinary research and publications conference aimsto identify and understand violence in contemporary life. The project willpay particular attention to the different contexts and places where violencedevelops, occurs and where its effects are felt; from the interpersonal tothe international, from the empirical to the symbolic. Attention will also focus on uncovering the motives, dynamics and functions that violence hasfor individuals, groups, populations and societies, as well as for bonds andsocial relations in the private, institutional and public spheres of life.Exploring and understanding representations of violence in media, art andliterature is a key part of the conference. Violence has been part of societies and used as a political tool in multipleways: to unite or divide, to produce fear and compliance, to incite orneutralize mobilization, to resist domination or to impose subordination. Ithas been touted as the only path for liberation or the inevitable road toannihilation and destruction, as a necessary means for transformation or asthe ultimate form to avoid change and defend the status quo. And despiteglobal, national and local efforts to minimize, reduce or eliminate it violence remains a horrifying feature of today's world and life. Papers will also be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstractsshould be submitted by Friday 18th January 2008. If an abstract is acceptedfor the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 18thApril 2008.
