    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.

    The production of subjectivity under neo-liberal governance

    Neoliberal governance and its structures, and dispositifs, are at the core of contemporary debates in the human sciences. David Harvey (2006) considers neoliberalism a theory that places individual freedom as the final goal of all civilisations. Private property rights, free markets and liberal democracy are the means through which individual freedom is best protected and society flourishes, according to neo-liberal views. The primary role of the state is to enforce property rights, while market forces govern the economy. Neo-liberal ideas have shaped global and national policy for over three decades, introducing the primacy of private property and market rationality in all range of public life from education to healthcare, from land governance to environmental protection. Workers' rights in the global North as well as in the South are devalued in favour of individual responsibility.

    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.

    Faces of Eros

    Journal of Phenomenological and Existential Theory and Culture

    Eros plays a central role in Western thought. In the philosophical and spiritual traditions, it usually refers to physical love and desire. Eros is a recurring character in the pre-Socratic cosmogonies, and it is the main impulse of the philosophical quest for truth in Plato’s Phaedrus. This Special Topics issue of PhænEx wishes to give a new impulse to philosophical reflections on this fundamental and ambiguous phenomenon, following an interdisciplinary perspective at the intersection of phenomenology, post-structuralism, and social sciences (psychology, sociology, sexology, anthropology, linguistics, etc.).

    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.

    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.

    Four Post-doctoral positions on "Luxury, Fashion and Social statuS in Early Modern South-Eastern Europe"

    New Europe College - Institute for Advanced Study

    Following the European Research Council competition for Consolidator Grants (2014), New Europe College became the Host Institution of such a grant. The project title is Luxury, Fashion and Social statuS in Early Modern South-Eastern Europe and its Principal Investigator is Constanţa Vintilă-Ghiţulescu, researcher at New Europe College and at the “Nicolae Iorga” Institute of History in Bucharest. The project aims to trace the role luxury played in the modernisation process in South-Eastern Europe, taking into account the specific features of the region and how South-Eastern European peoples, and their Byzantine and Ottoman heritage are viewed through the stereotype of “Balkanism”. The project’s findings will help towards a better knowledge of changes in European society in its transition to modernity, and of similarities and differences between the various regions of Europe.

    The economic agent and its representation(s)

    3rd International Conference Economic Philosophy

    It goes without saying that how the “economic agent” is represented does matter to the utmost. It matters as much for economic theory as for empirical investigations that are based upon such models. It matters in the way institutions emerge, as to how societies get organized, and for the many devices contributing to the “general good” (whether they appear spontaneously, or are pragmatically and purposely created). It matters also for correcting incomplete or missing markets.

    Engaging Society in Innovation and Creativity

    Perspectives from Social Sciences and Humanities

    The trend of change from science and technology policy to science, technology and innovation (STI) policy becomes remarkable in Japan but also in Europe. Policymakers intend to break down the sense of economic and social stagnation by creating innovation driven by science and technology. In order to solve complex social issues, innovation is definitely essential. However, it is also obvious that creating “real” innovation needs some other elements than just the development of hard science and technology. Innovation needs integration of knowledge beyond disciplines. Recently the role of social science and humanities (SSH) in the innovation process is being highlighted and science, technology and innovation policy of many countries now expects SSH to play important role in conceiving, realizing and adjusting the policy.
