    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.

    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.

    Questioning self-medication

    A socially and geographically situated bricolage

    Treating oneself is a controversial practice: scorned in the name of the health risks it runs, self-treatment may also be praised in the name of the independence it expresses. The messages of public health authorities are at the heart of the controversy, emphasizing risk one moment and their potential for patient responsibility the next. Such contradictory injunctions also affect the practices of care providers. The conference has chosen to allow comparisons and confrontations between these various disciplinary approaches as well as distinct research field sites (North/South, North/North, South/South). These practices and their determinants have to be more finely mapped and analyzed to put these analyses – by definition always partial, and theoretically, historically, and geographically situated – in perspective.

    Food Security and the Contemporary World

    In view of the interpretations suggested by all these studies, the special issue of Contemporanea aims to engage in a reflection on food security in the widest sense of the term, which includes the political and economic choices made by institutions, relations between states, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, the connection between the availability of food and international stability. We also intend to look at the circulation of cultures and practices within the transnational space that historically defines the relationship between food, health, individual and collective well-being.

    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.
