    Dis/Orienting Identity

    This half-day symposium will examine how visual and material culture is used to manipulate or mediate identity. The event will take a critical look at the effects of mass media on self- perception and consider how marginalized groups—whether non-Western or over the age of 65—are taking charge of their own cultural representation through fashion, performance, and discourse.

    Fields, worlds and networks in graphic novels - the example of Glénat

    Distinct à la fois des maisons plus traditionnelles comme Dupuis ou Dargaud et des institutions alternatives plus récentes comme L’Association ou Frémok, Glénat est un éditeur original, qui offre des prises diverses et solides permettant de rendre compte de ses rouages et logiques. Fondée en 1969 à Grenoble par le bédéphile amateur jacques Glénat, la maison voit le jour la même année que le fanzine Schtroumpf qui deviendra les fameux cahiers de la bande dessinée (1969-1990), dirigés par Thierry Groensteen à partir de 1984 et qui constituent une clé pour saisir l’émergence d’un discours critique sur la bande dessinée. Glénat investit dans les styles et genres très divers (fantastique, humour, aventure, histoire…) avec dans chaque domaine des succès retentissants comme Les Passagers du vent de François Bourgeon (1980-87) jusqu’à Il était une fois en France (2007-2012).

It is especially a social act, as it involves the social position and relationships of the individual in all of the included practices: supplying, cooking, dressing, ordering, ingesting, clearing, washing-up, managing left-overs, etc.  This symposium offers to explore, with a social science approach, the different dimensions associated with sharing meals (non exhaustive): Cultural differences in the manners of sharing meals; Specificity of the sharing of cooking times regarding the sharing of meal times; Use of commensality as a social action mean; Symbolic representation of the benefits of sharing meals (psychological, physiological, social); Comparison of meals regarding other eating times (snacking); Political/Diplomatic use of meals; Organization, perception and role of meals in institutions (school canteens, hospital, nursing homes, prisons…).

    Debating the Norms of Scientific Writing

    Scholars coming from various disciplines in the social sciences have questioned the limits of scientific writing, for instance its narrative dimension or the the referential value of the scientific text. Debates on the forms of scientific writing will be at the core of our workshop. Our aim is to probe these writing experiments, and to study how they express, justify, problematize, and renegotiate the normative rhetoric of disciplines.

    Power and social exclusion

    Insights looking at language

    Ce numéro thématique de Language, Discourse & Society se focalise sur les exclusions sociales et les enjeux de pouvoir associés. L'exclusion sociale peut être appréhendée comme un ensemble d'actions plus ou moins concertées, situées dans le temps et dans l'espace, et exécutées par une personne vis-à-vis d'un tiers. Une attention particulière est accordée au langage en tant qu'outil de l'exclusion sociale, mais aussi de résistance à une telle discrimination et oppression.
