    Access to Material and Immaterial Goods

    The Relationship between Intellectual Property and its Physical Embodiment

    This conference aims to look at the relationship between intellectual property and its physical materialisations, with a particular focus on the issue of access and the challenges of new technologies. Though intellectual property protects the intangible, it is indisputable that intellectual property goods classically had to be physically materialised in order to been joyed or used. This materialisation can, however, challenge our theoretical notion of the intangible and the tangible as constituting discrete forms of property and can have serious consequences on access to intellectual property goods. Our aim is to address the divide between the intangible and the tangible from the perspective of issues of access and problems relating to new technologies.

    "Lesbian"/Female Same-Sex Sexualities in Africa

    Special Issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies

    The multiple configurations of same-sex practices and relationships across the African continent, alongside the problematic notion of homosexual, “lesbian,” and “queer” identities in the African context, have been addressed by various scholarly publications in the past couple of decades. Yet same-sex interactions, relationships, and politics between African women have not garnered significant attention either in feminist/queer studies or in African studies, and remain largely unrepresented in academic writings. This special issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies proposes to fill this scholarly gap by exploring this topic from a variety of cultural and disciplinary perspectives. Contributions by scholars on the African continent are particularly welcome.

    The social before the sociological rereading 19th-century social thinking

    Thematic issue of L'Année sociologique. Guest editor : François Vatin. Volume 67 / 2017, issue 2

    It is customary to locate the birth of sociology in the final years of the 19th century. In this respect, the case of France is particularly significant, with the publication of Émile Durkheim’s The Rules of Sociological Method in 1895. Rightly or wrongly, Durkheim’s founding act, more or less transposed into the other intellectual traditions, nevertheless led the variously named schools of social thought that had preceded it - social science, social physiology, social philosophy, social physics, etc. – to be relegated to the dark ages of “prehistory”. It is not the goal of this call for papers to rehabilitate forgotten social traditions, to deny the break that occurred at the end of the 19th century or to diminish the importance of the survey in sociological inquiry. It is to reflect on the pertinence for contemporary sociology of reading the works that preceded the moment conventionally accepted as the birth of sociology.

    Mountains and conflict: conflict as a factor in territorial adaptation and innovation

    The purpose of this special issue of the Journal of Alpine Research | Revue de Géographie Alpine is to look at mountain areas through the prism of conflict and, more specifically, through the relationship between conflict and territory. Conflict is envisaged here in a broad sense of opposition and struggle, armed or unarmed, covering not only the political aspects, but also the military, social and cultural aspects, cutting across the notions of resistance and reaction, in their capacity to generate innovation. The mountain context lends itself to an examination of the territorial dimensions of conflict. What does this situation produce at the local scale? And what role do morphological characteristics, mountain values and identities play in this?

    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.

    Global Health: Anticipations, Infrastructures, Knowledges

    The framing of health as a global issue over the last three decades has carved out an intellectual, economic and political space that differs from that of the post-war international public health field. This older system was characterised by disease eradication programs and by the dominance of nation states and the organisations of the United Nations. The actors, intervention targets and tools of contemporary global health contrast with previous international health efforts.
