    SITRE - international conference

    A produção científica promovida por instituições e pesquisadores dedicados às diversas áreas do conhecimento tem congestionado o calendário acadêmico brasileiro e internacional com inúmeros eventos; muitos deles dimensionados para reunir milhares de pesquisadores, professores e estudantes, que procuram apresentar e discutir seus trabalhos, assim como os de seus colegas pesquisadores. Frequentemente esses eventos são, também, pensados para tratar de temas dentro de áreas de conhecimento muito específicas. O SITRE é o lugar onde se encontram e se recobrem em suas interfaces as Ciências Humanas e Sociais Aplicadas, as Ciências Exatas, a Educação, as Engenharias, a Filosofia. Onde se encontram pesquisadores, mas também docentes dedicados ao estudo da educação, do trabalho e da identidade e questões relacionadas ao gênero e ergologia.

    La transhumance en Italie centrale de la Protohistoire à nos jours

    Il seminario, organizzato all'interno del progetto "La transhumance en Italie centrale de la Protohistoire à nos jours", vuole riflettere sul rapporto tra pastorizia e agricoltura, tra forme di conflitto, strumenti di regolazione e ipotesi di integrazione. L'arco temporale cui si riferiscono le relazioni previste - tra ricerche di prima mano e riflessione storiografica - va dall'Età romana al Novecento e allarga l'area indagata al Mezzogiorno, peraltrofortemente connesso all'Italia centrale dalla pratica della transumanza ovina.Una relazione sull'area alpina e un'altra sulla Penisola iberica offriranno, infine, utili elementi diconfronto.

    The Transnationalization of Religion through Music

    The transnationalization of religion refers to the relocalization of beliefs, rituals and religious practices beyond state lines, in real or symbolic spaces, with the help of new imaginaries and narrative identities. Although the analysis of religious transnationalization has revealed the various ways religion transcends borders, the role of music in this process is rarely addressed. Yet this role is essential in the transnationalization of universal religions like Islam and Christianity. Music also contributes to the migration of local religions, neotraditionalist movements, and cults associated with a particular area, such as Haitian Voodoo, Cuban Santería, or Brazilian Candomble. Such musical phenomena, far from being new, gave birth to early religious globalizations.

    Combining scientific Expertise with Participation: the Challenge of the European Landscape Convention

    The adoption of the European Landscape Convention (ELC) in 2000 represents a major event in taking landscape into account at the European level. As of June 2013, 38 Council of Europe member states have ratified the Convention. By specifying that landscape is an essential component of the quality of life of Europeans, the Convention is, first and foremost, in line with a territorial dimension. Moreover, a strong foundation of the ELC lies in its specific definition of landscape, notably based on the notion of perception by populations. One of the scientists’ major concerns is therefore how to reconcile objective scientific approaches with the subjective aspect of citizens’ perception. After more than a decade of practice, the Conference will be an opportunity for scientists who have been working in line with the ELC to present the tools developed and to reflect on their tangible, measurable and observable effects.

    The office as an interior (1880-1960)

    Au cours de la « deuxième révolution industrielle » augmente considérablement l’activité dans le tertiaire et se développent les services administratifs dans le secteur industriel et public. L’employé devient ainsi la figure sociale de la modernité urbaine, qui témoigne aussi du rôle croissant de la femme dans ce secteur professionnel. Le colloque The office as an interior (1880-1960) aborde l’essor du travail administratif entre 1880 et 1960 à travers l’analyse de l’émergence d´un espace nouveau, le bureau, qui par ses arrangements contribue à la diffusion de nouvelles formes de sociabilité et réalise des nouveaux modes d’organisation du travail.

    From silicosis to silica hazards: an experiment in medicine, history and the social sciences

    What are the biases inherited from the constitution of medical knowledge? How does returning to the root of “scientific truth” open new avenues to contemporary research? The present colloquium is an unprecedented interdisciplinary experiment whereby medical experts, epidemiologists and historians will question the very foundations of current medical knowledge of silica hazards, in order to discuss the unknown origin of a range of systemic diseases.

    Multilocal residentiality, cities and regional planning

    La multilocalité résidentielle, autrement dit habiter de façon officielle ou informelle en plusieurs endroits, est une forme de vie qui gagne en importance ces derniers temps et capte de plus en plus l’attention des médias. Ces pratiques d’habitation intermittente sur différents lieux ont des conséquences très importantes pour nos sociétés, certes pour la cohésion familiale (thème de notre précédente journée à Fribourg/Bsg) mais aussi pour la cohésion locale (participation locale) et pour l’usage des infrastructures et des services sur les différents lieux d’habitation, mais aussi par ce qu’elles créent des besoins et demandes spécifiques sur les infrastructures de transports, les offres de logements et les services (gardiennage, magasin, heure d'ouverture de l'administration, etc.). Est-ce que ces pratiques s’arrangent avec les infrastructures existantes qui ont été pensées pour la monorésidentialité ?

    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.

    Embodying Another Self‏

    XVIII World Congress of Sociology of the International Sociological Association (ISA)

    Considering the multiplicity of the selves, in the material life or in the virtual life, related to the individual or to the community, according to the reality or to the fiction, we can wonder how the self is constructed. This session explores how the constitution of the self is linked to an embodied dimension. Focused on case studies in different fieldworks, with notably questions of personal conceptions and social visibility, associated to different sociological and anthropological approaches, the session aims to present several analyses about the embodied dimension of various self conceptions.

    The Seventh Age of Man: Constructs, Challenges and Catch-22s

    From a Humanities Perspective

    The Institute for Transcultural and Transtextual Studies (IETT) is organising a multi-disciplinary conference on old age, interpreted as a transitional period during which individuals have to face specific issues. The conference aims to explore three major themes. The first one will lead us to address a series of questions related to aesthetic norms and social models. The second theme will focus on forms of mental and physical degeneration and will encourage us to examine the consequences of age-related disability, segregation, and exclusion. The third issue is based on the related questions of memory and transmission. It will allow us to reflect upon the transmission of traditions and on relationships within the family, partly based on authority, and/or on inherited collective values.

    The Fiftieth Anniversary of the African Independences: Marginalized, Forgotten, and Revived Political Actors

    The fiftieth anniversary of the African Independence has been an occasion for the East African countries and their diasporas, the international academic community and the former colonial nations to assess the economic, social and political achievements and failures of the past fifty years. However, such inventories tend to focus on the upheavals of the social, economic and political structures, sometimes on the memory of the fathers of the nation and former grand nationalistic narratives, but usually overlook political actors, whether individual or collective, which were marginalized by the men in power during the early post-independent years.

    Changing the Tune: Popular Music and Politics in the XXIst century

    From the fall of communism to the Arab spring

    Popular Music scholars have devoted considerable attention to the relationship between music and power. The symbolic practices through which subcultures state and reinforce identities have been widely documented (mainly in the field of Cultural, Gender and Postcolonial Studies), as has the increasingly political and revolutionary dimensions of popular music. Most studies have focused on the genres and movements that developed with and in the aftermath of the 1960’s counterculture. Yet little has been written about how the politics of popular music has reflected the social, geopolitical and technological changes of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, after the fall of Communism. Still, the music of the Arab Spring or of the Occupy and Indignados movements have been scarcely commented upon while they attest to significant changes in the way music is used by activists and revolutionaries today.
