Appel à communication : Soi, l’autre et l’ailleurs : images et imaginaires des villes portuaires de l’Europe atlantique et méditerranéenne (XVIIIe-XXIe siècle)

Lieu : Bordeaux
Date(s) : 11 et 12 mai 2015
Date limite de réponse à l’appel : 12 octobre 2014


Ce colloque international s’intéresse à l’histoire des représentations des villes portuaires de l’Europe atlantique et de la Méditerranée du XVIIIe siècle à nos jours. La relation entre ville et port – nous traiterons ici exclusivement des ports maritimes – ne va pas de soi selon les types d’activités et les époques. Le rapport des sociétés urbaines à l’espace et aux activités portuaires a en effet pu varier d’intensité et de nature et la longue période considérée permet d’envisager des phases de développement de l’activité, de déclin et de restructuration urbaine. Les quais sont à cet égard la ligne de contact entre ville et port qui portent le plus la trace de ces transformations. En outre, la ville portuaire est dans son « identité », particulièrement tributaire des rapports entretenus avec l’extérieur, les autres peuples, les autres mondes. On analysera aussi bien le regard qu’elle porte sur elle-même, que le regard qui est porté sur elle depuis l’extérieur, on envisagera également sa perception de l’autre (migrants, touristes…) et des mondes lointains. Des sources variées pourront être mobilisées : artistiques, littéraires, administratives, orales, écrites, photographiques, radiophoniques, cinématographiques, télévisuelles, numériques, etc.
