Esthétique et philosophie de l'art - 27-31 mai 2024

À la fois morceau de la doctrine philosophique de G.W.F. Hegel et slogan pour signifier les ruptures esthétiques majeures des XXe et XXIe siècles, « la fin de l’art » constitue une excellente porte d’entrée pour penser la délimitation de ce qui fait art ou non, les rapports de l’art et du beau, l’historicité et l’actualité de l’art ou encore le statut du discours esthétique. La fin de l’art a été l’occasion de réflexions très vives sur les ready made, le pop art, l’art contemporain et ultra contemporain, soupçonné de faire triompher « l’esthétique » et ses atmosphères. Le problème sera ici posé sans cadre chronologique préétabli et sans privilégier tel art sur un autre.

Forensic Science and Criminology

The ESC doctoral programme brings together PhD students of the School of Criminal Justice (Ecole des Sciences Criminelles - ESC, University of Lausanne) as well as any PhD students from a university delivering a PhD in forensic science or criminology. The aim of the programme is to allow PhD students to develop their network as well as cross-disciplinary skills to successfully conduct their research and prepare them for their professional career. This objective is achieved by offering specialized workshops and activities in the frame of a summer school. The proposed activities promote the active participation of the PhD students, for example by allowing them to present their work through lectures and poster sessions or video capsules.
