Conference "The family between demographic and social changes" in Bologna

pdf  Sorry, it's late, but however...

Triennial conference S.I.De.S. 

"The family between demographic and social changes" 

Bologna, 24-26 October 2018 

Call for papers 

S.I.De.S. (Italian Society of Historical Demography) invites scientific proposals to the triennial conference "The family between demographic and social changes". The conference aims to highlight new directions, topics and perspectives related to the role of the family within the processes and demographic mechanisms. Nowadays a new dynamic and longitudinal approach characterizes the analysis of the family groups in historical demography, complementing the analysis of structural family classifications prevailing in the past. Due to the diversity of the subject, proposals that address the issue in a multidisciplinary way are welcome. S.I.De.S. also solicits comparative proposals, both in the Italian and European context. Regarding the covered period of time, historical contributions will be favoured, but studies and analyses that address the issue from a diachronic perspective, linking the past and the present, are not excluded a priori. The conference is organized, even if not exclusively, in following thematic sessions.

Family and naming practices 
Michaël Gasperoni, Vincent Gourdon, Cyril Grange

This session aims to analyze family practices of naming both children and adults (monastication, conversion and change of religion, name change for personal reasons, etc.), in an extended geographical area (Europe) and in a long-term perspective (Middle Ages – Modern Times). The session will privilege contributions that are not limited to listing and classifying names, but rather help to understand family or individual logics related to the name choice, the systems of representations and the strategies adopted among kin or within a social group to attribute and use certain names. The name choice was certainly made according to the circumstances, but also in connection with the moment and the way it became formally transmitted. For the latter, contexts of proclamation and registration in the sources will be the object of special attention. Medium or longterm studies are especially (though not exclusively) welcome. Issues to be raised, in particular: - The mechanisms of name transmission within the family, their evolution, social and spatial divergences. - The impact of social configurations on name choice and assignment: position among siblings and kin (within the age ranking and total number of siblings, etc.), legitimate or illegitimate birth, homogenitoriality, role and impact of family events (dead kin, migration, etc.). - Political, religious and social context: wars, authoritarian political regimes, secularization of civil records, access to nationality, integration or segregation of religious minorities, etc. - The use of names within the family (usual and unusual names, use of the name in intra-family exchanges, etc.).

L'onomastique en negro-culture


Mbonji Edjenguèlè (Auteur) Paul Abouna (Auteur) Dits et non-dits Paru le 20 avril 2018 Essai (broché)

D'où vient-il que les premiers à inventer les noms et à en faire un élément constitutif de l'être humain, les Noirs africains, en sont arrivés à arborer des noms et prénoms associant deux ou trois composantes dissensuelles, contradictoires, dépersonnalisantes ? Kwedi Laeticia Mort – Joie Misse Esther Terre – Étoile Minyono Irène Pleurs – Paix Ze Rachèl Panthère et Brébis Foning Rebécca Roi de la concession et flatterie D'où vient-il que les Africains tournent le dos à la création nominale pour se satisfaire de copier des noms qui les inscrivent dans les termes de référence d'autres cultures ? Ce livre expose le mécanisme de structuration, de taxonomie et d'impartition des significations et des fonctions au nom, tout en s'interrogeant sur les enjeux ethnocidaires d'un certain système onomastique à velléité amplective. Lors même que notre réflexion y verrait une stratégie de domination, elle se limite ici à en émettre l'hypothèse.

Workshop "Namen pragmatisch: Namen wählen – Namen geben – Namen nehmen"


VERBAL-Workshop im Rahmen der ÖLT (Österreichische Linguistiktagung) (Innsbruck, 28.10.2018)
Namen pragmatisch: Namen wählen – Namen geben – Namen nehmen

Nicht nur die Ergebnisse onymischer Benennungsvorgänge – Namen – an sich, sondern auch Benennungsvorgänge selbst, damit zusammenhängende Praktiken und Situationen sowie daran Beteiligte sind onomastisch relevant. Seien es
  • onomasiologische oder psychologische Benennungsbedürfnisse (Letztere etwa bei experimentierenden Kindern, bei Liebenden oder Spottenden),                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Foto der ÖLT aus dem Jahr 2017

  • Motive bei der Namenwahl (inkl. deren Diskursivierungen),
  • meta-onymische Regelungen (in die neben sprachlichem und linguistischem Wissen etwa auch juridisches, historisches oder geografisches einfließt) wie Vorgaben zur Benennung von Verkehrsflächen oder im Markenrecht oder Umbenennungen (etwa von Menschen, Siedlungen oder Produkten),
  • oder aber formelle/informelle Rahmen für Namenwechsel (etwa von Personen oder Gegenständen) –
    Das Handeln rund um die Konstruktion “Namen – Namenträger*in” stellen wir, die Romanistinnen Marietta Calderón & Sandra Herling, ins Zentrum dieses VERBAL-Workshops; wir freuen uns auf Beiträge zu unterschiedlichen Sprachen und Themen. Eine Publikation geeigneter Beiträge auf Deutsch in einer Nummer der ÖNf (Österreichische Namenforschung) ist, sofern die Beiträger*innen dies wünschen, geplant.
Namen, Beitragstitel und Abstracts (mit bis zu 300 Wörtern) bitte bis 31. Juli 2018 an oder – Anfang August werden wir Rückmeldung darüber geben, ob der Beitrag in unseren Workshop aufgenommen wurde, sowie ggf. weitere Details zur Anmeldung.

Topography and Toponymy in the Ancient Near East: Perspectives and Prospects


The present volume, based on a conference on Ancient Near Eastern historical geography and toponymy held at the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) on 27-28 February 2014, brings together 12 contributions by Belgian and international specialists on various aspects of this field of research. They deal with the entire Ancient Near East (Anatolia, Levant, Mesopotamia and Iran). Chronologically, the various contributions in the volume discuss topics situated in the 3rd, 2nd and 1st Millennia BC.
The articles in this volume are arranged geographically, starting with items on Anatolia, followed by studies on Mesopotamian and Levantine topography and finally a third part on ancient Iran and Elam. They will doubtlessly demonstrate the high importance of the study of historical geography and toponymy for our understanding of the history of the Ancient Near East and will also stimulate the research on the historical geography of the ancient Near East.

The Political Life of Urban Streetscapes: Naming, Politics, and Place


Streetscapes are part of the taken-for-granted spaces of everyday urban life, yet they are also contested arenas in which struggles over identity, memory, and place shape the social production of urban space. This book examines the role that street naming has played in the political life of urban streetscapes in both historical and contemporary cities. The renaming of streets and remaking of urban commemorative landscapes have long been key strategies that different political regimes have employed to legitimize spatial assertions of sovereign authority, ideological hegemony, and symbolic power. Over the past few decades, a rich body of critical scholarship has explored the politics of urban toponymy, and the present collection brings together the works of geographers, anthropologists, historians, linguists, planners, and political scientists to examine the power of street naming as an urban place-making practice. Covering a wide range of case studies from cities in Europe, North America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia, the contributions to this volume illustrate how the naming of streets has been instrumental to the reshaping of urban spatial imaginaries and the cultural politics of place.

Presentation "Onomastics of an Indian Woman" by Dr. Gary Moulton


Dr. Gary Moulton to Speak in Salmon

The Sacajawea Center and the Lemhi County Historical Society have been teaming up for five years to bring June History Month to the community. This year the Center is also celebrating its 15 year anniversary and we are excited to be hosting Dr. Gary Moulton for June History Month. Dr. Moulton is the preeminent editor of the Lewis and Clark Expedition journals and has produced not only a 13 volume edition of the journals for scholars and the likes but also several other books including, The Lewis and Clark Expedition Day by Day, released in April.

Evening Program
On Thursday, June 21, 2018 Dr. Moulton will be giving his presentation, “Onomastics of an Indian Woman,” at Discovery Hill – Holcomb Field at 7pm (if weather is inclement the event will be moved to City Hall at 200 Main Street). Holcomb Field is located beyond N. St. Charles Street in Salmon on Discovery Hill, which gets its name from the Corps of Discovery traveling through the area in 1805. A map is included below for details on how to reach Holcomb Field.
The term “onomastics” relates to the study of names—place-names usually, but also to personal names. Dr. Moulton was led to this topic when he wondered if during the Lewis and Clark expedition, terms for Sacagawea changed over time and if those changes were the result of circumstances. For example, did expedition journalists (particularly Lewis and Clark) use more familiar or affectionate names for her as they got to know her better? Did her usefulness (gathering plants, pointing out landmarks) generate a change in naming her? Did dramatic events (such as saving expedition items during a boat accident) alter the way she was labeled? Did she go from “Indian squaw” to “our Indian woman,” from “interpreter’s wife” to “Sacagawea” as time passed? Did specific names for her reflect particular attitudes by the writer? After examining all references to her in the journals, Dr. Moulton suggestions answers to these questions. He also discovered some interesting matters that may alter our perceptions on how the members of the Corps of Discovery viewed her.
Field Trip
Dr. Moulton will also be joining us for our annual field trip on Saturday, June 23 to Lemhi Pass. Pre-registartion is required for the field trip and the cost is $50 per person and includes lunch and transportation to Lemhi Pass. We will meet at the parking lot across from the Lemhi County Museum (210 Main Street) at 8:30am on the 23rd. You can call 208.756.1188 to make your reservation for the field trip or if you have questions about any of the programs.
Dr. Gary E. Moulton is Thomas C. Sorensen Professor Emeritus of American History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and editor of the Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Moulton began the editing project in 1979 with support from the UNL Center for Great Plains Studies, the American Philosophical Society, Philadelphia, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Washington, D.C.; he completed the thirteen-volume edition in 1999 and retired from the university in 2004.
Dr. Moulton has received numerous awards and scholar-in-residents and has been called upon often as a consultant for Lewis and Clark projects, including Ken Burns’ film, “Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery,” the United States Mint’s design of the one-dollar Sacagawea coin, National Geographic’s Lewis and Clark IMAX film, and Maya Lin’s Confluence Project on the Columbia River.

Des noms de rues qui portent à confusion

20 ans après la fusion municipale, la Ville d’Edmundston est sur le point de procéder à l’harmonisation de ses noms de rues.  Une quarantaine d’entre eux seront modifiés pour éliminer les doublons. La présence de trois rues Canada et de deux rues Principale, entre autres, causent de nombreux problèmes aux résidents des différents quartiers.

Conférence « La nomination des personnages : discours et théorie(s) des romanciers du XIXe siècle »


Le 14 juin 2018
Archives nationales - site de Paris (11 rue des Quatre-Fils, 3e arrondissement), CARAN (salle d'albâtre) à 15 heures.
La nomination des personnages : discours et théorie(s) des romanciers du XIXe siècle
Conférence de la Société française d'onomastique,
par Claire Le Guillou (université de Brest / Centre d'étude des correspondances et journaux intimes)

Roland Barthes, qui partait du principe que le nom propre est le "prince des signifiants", déclarait, dans une interview donnée au Magazine littéraire en février 1975 que "Très souvent, j'ai même pensé que la réussite d'un roman tenait à la réussite de son onomastique."  De fait, de nombreuses études ont été consacrées aux procédés onomastiques qui sous-tendent certains romans, et plus spécifiquement ceux du XIXe siècle. La Comédie humaine ou les Rougon-Macquart ont ainsi été particulièrement étudiés. Il n'est donc pas nécessaire de parcourir ces chemins d'analyse qui ont été très largement empruntés. En revanche, la critique contemporaine ne semble guère s'être interrogée sur les discours et les théories onomastiques élaborés par les romanciers eux-mêmes. Il s'agira donc de traquer tous les éléments de discours portant sur l'acte de nommer les personnages chez les romanciers du XIXe siècle, afin d'être en mesure de cerner les contours et l'essence des théories onomastiques qu'ils énoncent.
Archives nationales - site de Paris - 11, rue des Quatre-Fils (3e arrondissement), CARAN (salle d'albâtre), à 15h00.

Zinātniskās konferences “Onomastikas pētījumi” preses konference


“Latviešu valodas institūts jau no pašiem pirmsākumiem ir strādājis onomastikas jomā,” preses konferencē īpašvārdu pētniecības nozīmību gan vēsturiski, gan mūsdienās uzsvēra Latvijas Universitātes (LU) Latviešu valodas institūta direktore Ilga Jansone, akcentējot arī aktuālo – sabiedrības atsaucību iemantojušo – vietvārdu talku: „Vietvārdi ir tie, kas nepārtaukti mainās un papildinās, nepārtraukti rodas jauni mājvārdi, mikrotoponīmi – tos ir jāsavāc, jāapkopo.”

Starptautiskajai zinātniskajai konferencei „Onomastikas pētījumi”, veltītajā preses konferencē 9. maijā piedalījās zinātniskās konferences rīkotāji – LU Latviešu valodas institūta pārstāvji: direktore Ilga Jansone, vadošās pētnieces Renāte Siliņa-Piņķe un Laimute Balode, pētniece Sanda Rapa un viesis – Austrumu Vašingtonas universitātes profesors Grants Smits (Grant Smith), secinot, ka pētniecībai īpašvārdu jomā ir gan dziļas tradīcijas, gan daudz iespēju attīstībai, jo joma nepārtraukti mainās, paplašinās, kā arī pētniecībā iespēja pielietot jaunus aspektus un metodes – arī dažādu zinātnes jomu starpnozaru sadarbību.

 „Mūsdienās īpaši aktuāli kļūst lūkoties uz īpašvārdu no, tā saucamās, socio-onomastikas puses, kā īpašvārds saskaņojas ar sabiedrību, kā sabiedrība uz to skatās..., tas attiecas arī uz personvārdu izvēli, visi personvārdi, patiesību sakot, iet riņķī – pēc laika atgriežas atkal – kādreiz vecmāmiņām populārie, tagad tiek doti mazmeitiņām,” tā pētniecības aktualitātes un īpašvārdu apriti sabiedrībā skaidroja Laimute Balode, pastāstot arī par pavisam jaunām jomām, tādām kā ergonīmu – iestāžu, uzņēmumu nosaukumu – un ekonomonīmu – pārtikas produktu nosaukumu – pētniecības izaicinājumiem.

„Ja mums pierasts teikt, ka simt gadus un vairāk mums “Jānis” ir bijis populārākais, tad 17. gadsimtā,  skatoties zviedru revīzijā, Vidzemes zemnieku vidū populārākais vīriešu vārds bija Ansis, Jānis – bijis otrajā vietā...,” tā par interesantiem atklājumiem savā pētniecības jomā – vēsturiskajā onomastikā – stāstīja Renāte Siliņa-Piņke un ar pētniecisku prieku atklāja arī par zviedru laiku kartēm kā „neizsmeļamu bagātību” , „kas pamazām ienāk onomastikas aspektu pētniecībā”, jo tajās ir pat pļavu un zemnieku tīrumu nosaukumi, kā arī pastāstīja par vietvārdu nosaukumu īpašo pārceļošanu laikā un akcentēja arī starpnozaru sadarbības iespēju izmantošanu pētniecībā – stāstot par vārda „Ropaži” cilmi, kad vārda lībiskajai nozīmei “dzelžaina zeme” apstiprinājums gūts arheologu pētījumos, kuros noskaidrots, ka tajā vietā senāk ir iegūta dzelzs rūda.

Savukārt Sanda Rapa uzsvēra konferences vērienīgumu – ar vairāk nekā astoņdesmit dalībniekiem konferencē tiks pārstāvētas divdesmit valstis un pavēstīja arī par interesantām novitātēm konferences programmā – tajā iekļauti ir arī modernie virzieni – tēmas par narkotiku nosaukumiem melnajā tirgū, par īpašvārdiem Eirovīzijas dziesmās un arī tādiem nosaukumiem, kurus cilvēki nesaista ar īpašvārdiem, kā metro staciju, kosmosu objektu nosaukumi...

Konferences viesis Grants Smits pauda gandarījumu, ka pirmo reizi ir iespēja apmeklēt Latviju, jo labāk iespējams iepazīt kolēģus, valsti, tās vēsturi, kultūru.

“Personvārds vairs nav latviskās identitātes marķieris,” aicināta runāt par jomas problēmām, preses konferencē secināja Ilga Jansone, jo “pēcatmodas” laikā “lasot jaundzimušajiem iedotos vārdus, mēs aizvien vairāk pārliecināmies, ka mums pilnīgi sāk zust latviskā vide, ka tiek doti ļoti daudz svešas cilmes vārdi no jaunākiem romāniem, filmām…”

Konferences gaitā klātesošie tika iepazīstināti ar institūta izdevumiem „Latvijas vietvārdu vārdnīcas” kārtējo sējumu, L. Balodes un O.Buša grāmatu "No Abavas līdz Zilupei", “Onomastica Lettica” sējumiem, P. Baloža „Ne tikai Bērziņš, Kalniņš, Ozoliņš. Latviešu personvārdu etimoloģiskās semantikas teorētiskais modelis un tā realizācija” u.c. Un kā uzsvēra I. Jansone:  “Tas, ko mēs varam nopublicēt ir tikai maza daļa no tām bagātībām, kas glabājas mūsu institūta krātuvēs.”

Kā arī tika atgādināts, ka vietvārdu talka joprojām turpinās, jo katrā novadā ir vietvārdu vākšanas entuziasti, kā arī tiek gaidīti jauni.

“Īpašvārdu pētniecība Latvijā un Latvijas Universitātē ir tik jaudīga, ka no mūsu Latviešu valodas institūta zinātniekiem pieredzi smelties brauc no visas pasaules, to apliecināja arī preses konferences dalībnieks no tālās Vašingtonas profesors Grants Šmits,” uzver preses konferences vadītājs KID direktora p.i. Guntis Rozenbergs. “Gandrīz ikviens no mums tā vai citādi ir saistīts ar onomastiku, jo lietojam vietvārdus, dzimtas māju vārdus, tiek doti vārdi bērniem, gribam izzināt, no kā cēlies mūsu uzvārds, mājas vārds. Varētu pat teikt, ka šī zinātnes joma ir aizraujoša, to apliecina kaut vai Rīgā notiekošās starptautiskās konferences “Onomastikas pētījumi” daudzveidīgie referātu temati, tostarp par īpašvārdiem Eirovīzijas dziesmu konkursā, narkobiznesā lietoto slengu, senvārdiem, iesaukām un citiem interesantiem tematiem.” Un preses konferences noslēgumā Guntis Rozenbergs, gandarīts par uzzināto un atklājumiem jomā, kas līdz šim nebija izzināta, uzsvēra, ka konferences „Onomastikas pētījumi” programmā, atradis vismaz 4-5 saistošas tēmas, tādējādi aicinot gan klātesošos, gan tos, kas skatās preses konferenci tiešraidē, iepazīties ar konferences programmas plašo piedāvājumu un atrast laiku, lai apmeklētu konferenci.
Informāciju par konferenci “Onomastikas pētījumi”, kas no 10. līdz 12. maijam notiek Rīgā, kā arī konferences programmu un tēzes var uzzināt LU un LU Latviešu valodas institūta mājas lapā - un
