    Religious urbanisation and development in Africa

    The volume will critically explore how processes related to religious urbanization intersect with different notions of development in African contexts. Cities are taken to be powerful venues for the creation and implementation of models of development whose moral, temporal, and political assumptions need to be examined, not least as they intersect with religious templates for the planning and reform of urban space.

    Race in the marketplace (RIM)

    Crossing Critical Boundaries

    Race in the Marketplace (RIM) is an international multidisciplinary research network dedicated to innovatively advancing knowledge and critically understanding the role of race and how it intersects with class, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexuality and disability in global marketplaces. Building on our successful inaugural RIM Research Forum held in Washington D.C in spring 2017, we have decided to broaden the movement across the Atlantic and hold the second biannual RIM Research Forum in Paris (France) from June 25 to June 27, 2019. The broad objective of this second Forum is to continue the dialogue across domains, disciplines and geographical boundaries to contribute to an integrated understanding of race in markets.

    Municipalisation and urban management in Mozambique

    Le Mozambique est encore très largement géré par l'administration de l'État central: il n'y a que 58 municipalités, toutes urbaines. La questionne est donc très politique, puisque toute avancée de la municipalisation permet à l'opposition d'acquérir plus de poids, même si le parti au pouvoir garde le contrôle sur la majorité d'entre elles. Ce colloque international aura lieu une dizaine de jours après la tenue des élections municipales d'octobre 2018, qui seront un test grandeur nature pour les élections présidentielles et législatives de l'année suivante...

    Challenges of Cultural Diversity in Europe and the Arab World

    The era of globalization arises numerous challenges to accept plurality, differences and management of cultural diversity, especially, with the return of the ingredient of culture to the field of political action in a context in which culture has a central role in the post Cold War world. Globalization has tried to widespread certain values, practices and cultural expressions, whereas in numerous Arab and Western countries, refuge has been sought in cultural singularity and identity. Therefore, cultural factors have had their impact in the design of national, regional and international policies.

    Portugal, territory of territories

    IX Portuguese Congress of Sociology

    Hoje, mais do que nunca, importa estudar as variáveis territoriais das formações sociais, uma vez que o espaço atua cada vez mais, a várias escalas, como força de integração, mas também de exclusão, segregação e relegação, contribuindo ativamente para a criação e recomposição de injustiças, de diferenças e de desigualdades. O território não é um mero cenário onde se projetam os atores sociais. Dotado de especificidades, resiste ou favorece as dinâmicas sociais, pela mediação das práticas, pela sua historicidade, pela sua configuração própria, influenciando quer a distribuição dos grupos sociais no espaço, quer as tipologias das formas de habitação, quer mesmo o planeamento e o urbanismo.

    Seminar - Urban studies

    Migrants in Global Metropolises

    MAGMET research and doctoral seminar

    L'objectif de ce séminaire consiste à articuler transformations urbaines, migration et mondialisation pour mieux comprendre la fabrication des villes-mondes plurielles, marquées par de très forts taux d’immigration et de part de population étrangère. Partant des pratiques et des représentations des différents acteurs sociaux, économiques et politiques qui produisent et vivent dans ces villes, il s’intéresse aux modalités d’incarnation socio-spatiales de la diversité, ainsi qu’à sa gestion. En pensant simultanément les connexions et les ancrages, en jouant systématiquement sur l’articulation des échelles, l’enjeu du séminaire est d’élaborer un cadre analytique théorique comparatif afin de réfléchir aux modes de transformation des métropoles plurielles, engagées dans des dynamiques de mondialisation, en fonction de leur insertion dans les réseaux globalisés, de leur taille démographique et de leurs héritages et contextes politiques.

    Sociological appraisal and social changes in Morocco

    Dans ces moments de transitions, sociopolitiques, culturelles et démographiques que connaît le Maroc, le rôle que doivent jouer les sciences sociales est plus que jamais décisif. Car celles-ci permettraient-elles sans doute de saisir et d’analyser les temporalités dans lesquelles se tracent des devenirs à la fois anthropologique et sociopolitique. Le colloque « Bilan  sociologique et changements sociaux au Maroc » qu’organise le B.E.S.M. s’inscrit justement dans cette logique. Il s’agit en plus de faire un bilan synthétique et analytique de l’apport des sciences sociales durant ces deux dernières décennies – relatif aux domaines sociologiques importants sur lesquels elles ont focalisé et des questionnements anthropologiques qu’elles ont ouverts – d’ouvrir un débat interdisciplinaire neuf et critique, à partir de perspectives différentes mais complémentaires, sur les nouvelles dynamiques sociales qui se déploient et se reformulent dans le Maroc d’aujourd’hui. Des dynamiques que nous comptons, en l’occurrence, saisir à travers des pratiques et des processus sociologiques, en donnant à ce terme une dimension globale qui réfère aux expressions religieuses et culturelles, aux articulations politiques et économiques ainsi qu’aux multiples relations entre les catégories individuelles et collectives qui forment la société marocaine.

    1660-1688: A Landmark Period in the History of British Sociability

    1660-1688: un tournant dans l’histoire de la sociabilité britannique ?

    Dans le cadre du projet interdisciplinaire « History and Dictionary of Sociability in Britain (1660-1832) », la journée d’étude du 14 novembre 2014, organisée par PLEIADE (université Paris 13) et HCTI (UBO Brest) vise à étudier la période de la Restauration à la Glorieuse Révolution (1660-1688) comme une période charnière dans l’histoire de la sociabilité britannique, portant en elle les germes d’une sociabilité nouvelle. Il s’agira d’identifier les facteurs politiques, sociaux, économiques et culturels propices à l’essor de la sociabilité britannique et d’interroger le caractère novateur des formes, des pratiques et des vecteurs de cette sociabilité.

    City versus digital: stakes of a project conjugated in future

    This colloquium aims at contributing to the development of understanding the social dynamics and policies that arise at the crossing point between digital concepts and contemporary urban city as a context. Considering the city as active support of a political and social space mirroring the Greek polis, this scientific event will be registered in anthropology of the relation between “city” and “digital”. Perspectives on dual aspects of this study will focus on the different concepts that characterize their relationships and the stakeholders who are involved. How are the socio-political stakes of the city built through the development of the notions of “digital city”, “smart city”, “city 2.0” or “contributory city”?

    School and Educational Spaces

    Revue Espaces et Sociétés

    The mass education movements seen in most education systems of the past fifty years have transformed the issues related to school and education spaces. There is a reconstruction of these spaces that questions traditional learning and education missions of the school with broader educational initiatives to meet new problems. This issue focuses on the reorganization of school and educational spaces in relation to local initiatives (local and regional authorities , community associations, popular education movements...) on social and educational issues that mark the contemporary school. In a competitive environment where urban and school areas are increasingly hierarchical, where internal divisions are reinforced, where the external borders are fluid, we question the links between spatial segregation, educational pathways and forms of treatment of new educational issues.

    Dreamed/planned cities and experienced cities

    Annual Conference of the Commission on Urban Anthropology [CUA-IUAES]

    Nowadays, there is a growing interest among anthropologists to do urban research that looks at both the government of the city and the dwellers' representations of the city (Lefebvre). Many ethnographies have thus focused, on the one hand, on urban policies and, on the other hand, on social practices. The Urban Anthropology Series - published by Ashgate - and the works published in the Journal Urbanities are good examples of this growing trend among anthropologists, which is consistent with the major transformation of cities around the world: gentrification, competition between cities, urban sprawl, mobility, heritagization, etc.. Urbanity is paradoxically claimed as one of the main attributes of Modernity at a time when cities are diluting and disseminating. The aim of this conference is to understand both the dreamed/planned cities and the experienced cities. However, we do not want to oppose those who think the city to those who inhabit and practice it. Everyone is entitled to have personal thoughts about the place where one lives.

    40 years of democracy (ies): progresses, contradictions and prospects

    VIII Portuguese Sociological Congress

    Portuguese singularity presents today new communication bridges in comparison to other territorial realities, offering itself as a rare laboratory of sociological analysis. Regression phenomenon’s (both structural and dispositional) of articulation of social change’s asynchronous rhythms, of risk proliferation and uncertainty, conflictive conciliation of multiple modernities, within an unfinished one, challenge us to look sociologically at these last 40 years and also to think prospectively on tendencies and future challenges.

    7th International PhD Seminar Urbanism and Urbanization

    This 7th edition of the U&U International PhD Seminar will be held at the ENSA Paris-Malaquais, under the scientific direction of the Laboratory of Infrastructure and Architecture Planning (LIAT). Continually facing new demands from epistemological or technical society, and now facing an economic and social crisis (especially in Europe), urban planning is forced to question its methods. The Seminar is intended for PhD Students who wish to present their ongoing research questioning aspects of the field of urban planning in a historical perspective, from a theoretical point of view or with a potential for practical implementation. The U&U International PhD Seminars take place exclusively in English and seek to promote the exchange of ideas, provoke debate amongst researchers, invite comparisons, cross-pollinate different disciplines and to highlight the latest ongoing research. It is a rare opportunity offered to young researchers to meet with prominent scientists and build a critical argument.

    Action publique et problèmes sociaux dans les villes intermédiaires

    A Ação Pública resulta da interseção e, cada vez mais, da interdependência entre as ações que decorrem das responsabilidades respetivas das Políticas Públicas, através dos diferentes elos que a concretizam e da Sociedade Civil, através das iniciativas que a consubstanciam, entre movimentos sociais e iniciativas locais e as organizações e dispositivos que lhes dão consistência. A Ação Pública manifesta-se na construção e gestão dos problemas públicos ou sociais. O próprio processo de construção e os modos de gestão dos problemas sociais são analisadores potentes das relações de poder que existem entre os atores e das dinâmicas sociais no interior dos coletivos analisados.

    Les villes morcelées : quelles approches alternatives pour la rénovation urbaine ?

    Tackling Urban Fragmentation. Alternative Approaches to Urban Regeneration

    This one day conference invites researchers working on initiatives aiming at introducing innovative urban regeneration projects in cities across Europe, particularly cities affected by radical re-modellings over the last twenty years. We are looking for instances of administrative traditions being challenged towards exploratory strategies by lobbying groups of architects/designers, or local communities, or even local governments. This conference wants to explore if and how the expertise of uses from inhabitants and field workers in urban regeneration processes may be integrated to learn about possible ways of challenging the emerging patterns of urban fragmentation.
