    Haitian Oraliture: Identity(ies), Structure(s), Memory(ies) and Representations through the Prism of Human and Social Sciences

    In tribute to Maurice Sixto on the occasion of the centenary of his birth

    This conference is an opportunity to pay tribute to Maurice Sixto, for his significant lodyans. The year 2019 is indeed the centenary of birth of this master of the spoken word, born in May 1919, and the 35thanniversary of his passing, which occurred in May 1984. The contemporaneous legacy of Maurice Sixto encompasses various categories of lodyanseurs, among whom former cultural colleagues, talented impersonators, original interpreters and contemporaneous storytellers who, directly or indirectly, recognize themselves through the influence of the master. This event will be the occasion to discuss the multidimensional, psycho-sociological, didactic and aesthetic value of Sixto’s work.

    2015 FSAC / ACEF Annual Meeting

    In accordance with the theme of “Capital Ideas” for the 2015 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Folklore Studies Association of Canada / l’Association canadienne d’ethnologie et de folklore has selected “Mediations” as the theme for our 2015 annual conference program. The theme of “Mediations” is an invitation for scholars and students of folklore, popular culture, and cultural heritage to examine how the transmission of knowledge and ideas emerges from a complex background of skills, traditions and performances. As cultural forms, practices, representations and traditions are constantly going through processes of translation, adaptation, and mediation, this entails that, paradoxically, practices of cultural conservation and transmission often rely on technological innovations and the creation and extension of new infrastructures of mediation.

    Creation as resistance

    Readings, analyses and accounts of the Quebec student spring and other contemporary social movements through the prism of artistic activity

    De la Place Tahrir au Parc Émilie-Gamelin, de Tunis à Istanbul en passant par la Puerta del Sol et la Défense, se sont succédés des Printemps et des occupations qui ne se ressemblent pas. Une caractéristique commune semble pourtant émerger de ces différents mouvements sociaux : tous se sont accompagnés d’une impressionnante créativité artistique. Une fois passée la fièvre de l’événement et l’instant de l’action, que reste-t-il du souffle de la création ? L’après se travaillerait-il mieux à partir des œuvres ? Scientifique, social et culturel à la fois, le présent colloque international se situera à la jonction des pratiques et des savoirs, s’efforcera d’associer des chercheurs, des artistes et des militants.
