    Feminism and Theory in the Arab World

    Starting from the different historical experiences and political as well as intellectual trajectories of feminisms (understood as both feminist movements and ideologies) in the MENA region, the workshop focuses on how scholars who have long been observing feminist endeavors, while being themselves women's rights activits, interpret the present situation beyond ideological fault lines. What are the relevant concepts for understanding current debates and evolutions inside Arab feminisms? What is the potential of feminism(s) as both a set of critical theoretical tools as well as an ensemble of movements in the region? How does one theorize Arab feminisms from within while taking account of their historical entanglements as well as their current transnational connectivities?

    The Health of One-Parent Families in the UK

    From the Black Report (1980) to the Marmot Review (2010)

    La durée de vie des Anglais a augmenté mais les disparités sanitaires se sont accentuées dans le même temps (Marmot, 2010). L’objectif de la journée d’études permettra de lever le voile sur ces phénomènes et de les analyser au regard d’enquêtes qualitatives et quantitatives par exemple. Il s’agira d’étudier les réalités de la vie quotidienne de ces parents, les inégalités sociales et géographiques en matière de santé, de comprendre les mécanismes et d’envisager les enjeux sanitaires sur les futures générations tout en sachant que la responsabilité de la santé publique est transférée du National Health Service aux collectivités locales, selon les propositions du gouvernement de coalition.

    Mapping Desire: Where are the Critical Geographies of Sexualities?

    15 ans après la publication de l'ouvrage fondateur Mapping Desire qui a initié le champ des géographies des sexualités, ce workshop vise à rassembler et à faire dialoguer des auteurs de l'ouvrage, géographes internationalement reconnus, avec de jeunes chercheurs issus de différentes disciplines (science politique, sociologie, anthropologie) dont les travaux sur les sexualités comportent une dimension spatiale et géographique importante. Son objectif est de dresser un panorama des études produites depuis la parution de Mapping Desire et d'ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives.

    Gendering the Biographical in the History of the Sciences
