Novedad bibliográfica: POSEÍDO POR UN DIOS. La ciencia, el alma, la locura y la muerte en la obra de E.T.A. Hoffmann

 Autor: Luis Montiel “Después de muchos años trabajando con pasión y erudición la obra de E.T.A. Hoffmann sentí llegado el momento de realizar una aproximación más personal, en cierto sentido poética, al autor admirado y a aquellos de sus textos que más me habían emocionado, hecho pensar y en buena medida, transformado. Saldar una deuda, realizar un auténtico homenaje: esa era mi intención. Y hacerlo sin dejar de ser fiel a todo lo anteriormente realizado, es decir, a la inmersión en la profundidad de esos relatos cargados de sabiduría. Tenía que hacer comprender y  sentir  a otros, si es que no lo habían hecho por sí mismos, que Hoffmann fue un poeta en el sentido que a esa palabra dio el pensamiento clásico; que estaba, como habría dicho el Sócrates platónico, poseído por un dios”.

Inscripción al XX Coloquio Internacional de AEIHM: "Tecnología, ciencia y naturaleza en la historia de las mujeres"

La Asociación Española de Investigación de História de las Mujeres viene organizando, con carácter bienal, un Coloquio Internacional. Su XX edición está dedicada a la presencia de la tecnología, la ciencia y la naturaleza en la historia de las mujeres, con el objetivo de llevar a cabo una reflexión colectiva sobre la importancia de la relación entre la naturaleza y la feminidad. Este rasgo constituyente de muchas sociedades y civilizaciones históricas se ha construido a menudo en oposición a la idea de cultura, ciencia y tecnología. El feminismo ha sido pionero en el cuestionamiento de las visiones dicotómicas que asociaban a las mujeres con la naturaleza y a los hombres con la civilización. Por un lado, sabemos que las mujeres han contribuido a la cultura, al desarrollo de las ciencias, y que han dominado diversidad de tecnologías, tanto para alterar la naturaleza como para transformar el cuerpo por medio de diferentes prácticas y técnicas de representación de la feminidad.

CfA: "Time of Crisis/Temps de crise(s)"

  The journal Consecutio rerum ( http://www.consecutio.org ) selects original contributions for the issue n. 12 (2022/1), “Temps de crise(s)”. The term “crisis” is increasingly invoked to define very different phenomena. Contemporary times are characterized by generalized and permanent crises which seemingly do not spare any field. On the background of the financial and economic crisis of 2008 and of its lasting deleterious consequences, at least two different crises have recently come to the forefront of public debate: populations and States are now facing the health crisis triggered by the pandemic and the signs of an unprecedented climate crisis, i.e. extraordinary natural events such as megafires, torrential rains, abnormally high temperatures, etc.; moreover, contemporary societies witness political crises (which affect both democratic representation and the legitimacy of political decisions) as well as an individual and collective malaise, reflected in identity crises, or in the

CfP: The “Vichy parenthesis’’ ? Trajectories of academics and disciplinary reconfigurations during the Occupation and the immediate post-war period

This thematic issue aims to bring together contributions from specialists in the history of law, social sciences, economics, and exact sciences in order to complete or to question the historiography devoted to academic disciplines, universities, or scientific institutions during the Occupation of France and the immediate post-war period. Since the 1990s and the 2000s, global studies have been devoted to universities under the Vichy regime [Gueslin 1996], as well as to the purge of academics [Singer 1997] and [Rouquet 2010]. Monographs have also been devoted to universities or Grandes Écoles during the Second World War, as shown by the examples of the École polytechnique [Baruch, Guigeno 2000], the École normale supérieure [Israël 2005], the  Reichsuniversität   Strassburg  and the University of Strasbourg which was transferred to Clermont-Ferrand since September 1939 [Crawford and Olff-Nathan 2005], [Baechler, Irgesheim, Racine 2005] and [Möller 2020]. The historiography on academic di
