    Claudine Eizykman : to make cinema think

    Ce colloque s’inscrit dans le cadre d’une série de manifestations dédiées à la singularité des contributions et actions de Claudine Eizykman, disparue en Juin 2018, dans le champ du cinéma, des années 1970 à 2018. Il vise à revenir sur les diverses facettes de ces activités protéiformes, de leurs interconnexions et cohérence selon une démarche qu’elle a nommée holistique qui n’aura négligé aucun des aspects d’une remise à l’ordre du jour des avant-gardes et du cinéma expérimental, de ses conditions matérielles et politiques d’existence à une refondation radicale de la théorie du cinéma. De la NRI (narration représentation industrielle) au film-après-coup, c’est le tout du cinéma qui est appréhendé à partir de ses constituants et des avant-gardes comme lieu d’une expérience originaire.

    Prison spaces in the Middle Ages: an interdisciplinary approach to the territories and materialities of medieval incarceration

    While recent work has renewed our knowledge of medieval execution sites and of the internal layout of detention facilities, much remains to be done to understand the distribution of prison spaces and territories, in particular to shed light on the socio-spatial dynamics and logic of their establishment. These prison spaces evolved between the beginning and the extreme end of the Middle Ages, with prisons only multiplying from the 13th century onwards. These evolutions must be understood in close coordination with the evolutions of medieval justice and its spatial practices. Studies can be carried out at the scale of a building, a neighborhood, a city, a city, one or more regions.

    Museus e estudos interdisciplinares (MIDAS) n.º 12 “Varia”

    MIDAS will publish articles that foster the problematization of themes, transposing different disciplines, territories, perspectives and visions, and result in investigations of cross-fertilization with hybrid boundary borders. It presents itself as an unconfined questioning space in which knowledge is understood as being impermanent and open to the other.

    The utopia of globalised culture and the reality of local communication practices

    Communication and digital technology in Francophone sub-Saharan Africa

    The imaginary world surrounding digital communication seems to impose a vision that crushes cultural diversity. The Symposium aims to jointly explore the heterogeneity of uses, productions and issues raised by the meeting of globalised technology that is often Western-centred, with various cultures. The first edition will focus on Francophone sub-Saharan Africa, a multicultural territory where contemporary geopolitical contexts pose particularly vital issues for communications research. These issues are of interest mainly to the information and communication sciences community, but the contributions of researchers from various cultural and disciplinary horizons will make it possible to tackle this very broad problem of communication, especially digital, in sensitive areas, according to different complementary approaches.

    The Portuguese Republic after World war I: the Azores, centrality and communications in the North Atlantic

    Initially supported by the popular masses, the Portuguese First Republic was marked by social, political and economic instability, and a weak participation in World War I. The period from 1910 to 1926 was characterized by a partisan struggle for power, political and social agitation. Improvements since 1923 were not enough to counteract the growing discontent stimulated by intellectuals; a persecuted Church; an army and civil service without resources and an economically oppressed industry. The coup of May 28, 1926, put an end to this democratic regime starting a new cycle that, despite maintaining the previous political instability, prepared the Estado Novo, under the control of Antonio de Oliveira Salazar, interrupted in April 25, 1974.

    The Springs of theatre: Art in time of revolutions

    Revolts, revolutions and performance in the Middle East in the 21th century

    Le cycle de recherches « Révoltes, révolutions et performance au Proche et Moyen Orient au XXIe siècle » a pour objectif d’étudier la trajectoire politique et sociale des pays des régions du Proche et du Moyen-Orient par le biais de la création artistique, en particulier les arts de la scène et de la performance. Dans ces sociétés en profonde mutation, il s’agit donc de s’interroger sur le lien entre création, révolte et révolution au cours d’une série de séances de travail, et sur la manière dont la création s’est fait l’écho des tensions à l’œuvre dans la société, comment celles-ci sont restituées à la scène. Cette troisième journée sera consacrée à l'étude de productions théâtrales dans le contexte des révolutions qui ont traversé les pays de la région en 2011, en envisageant ces créations d'un point de vue esthétique (formes, dispositifs) et politique.

    Duration of activity and fragmentation of work

    Temporalités n°31, 2020/1

    This special issue aims at exploring the consequences, from the point of view of work times and pace, of the way production systems have become dependent on networks, sometimes on an international scale, and the collateral disaggregation of workers’ careers. Both these phenomenons, well identified in sociological literature, tend to encourage multiple discontinuities affecting work spaces or workers’ lives. How, in this context, can the essential continuum of work activities be maintained in order to ensure production? Researchers’ input on this question is sought after for this issue.

    Engendering Scandal: Children and Childhood in the Early Modern Period

    History, Literature, Memory

    This international two-day colloquium aims to analyse how and why the child, as an individual or in a group, could take part in the engendering process of scandal, and could even influence its meanings when more directly involved. It also aims to explore how narratives, even when confined to the judicial sphere (such as factums), could make sense of childhood, map its emotional realms, thus contributing to a better understanding of changing social and cultural norms and emotions relating to children.

    Repairing post-mining territories through territorial, landscape, architectural and artistic approaches

    Born out of an ecologically destructive sectoral economy, post-mining territories have come to be stigmatized as developmentally unsustainable, with lasting effects that still have to be addressed. Fragile, often protected, both visible and invisible territories, they offer a contemporary setting where experimenting with the transition towards a post-carbon society shows itself to be particularly relevant. As metonymical symbols of a world in need of repair, post-mining territories solicit the analyses and prospective contributions of our research disciplines: landscape, architecture and urban planning.

    Craftsmen and metalworking in medieval cities: thirty five years later

    The symposium Craftsmen and Metalworking in Medieval Cities: 35 Years Later addresses the metallurgies of iron, copper, tin, lead and precious metals, which produced a wide variety of objects necessary for urban life at the end of the Middle Ages. The nature, volume and possible standardization of production may be studied, as well as the needs of the city, the practices and techniques of craftsmen, their knowledge and know-how. The relationships between the crafts and between the craftsmen themselves might be examined, including dependency links, pluriactivity, networks of sociability or local relationships in urban areas. The identity and regulation of these crafts, their integration into urban society, their relationship with the surrounding rural areas and with other cities may also be revisited.

    American cities facing global changes

    Interdisciplinary Journal of Papers on the Americas (RITA) nr. 13

    Nowadays, the assessment of environmental changes worldwide is indisputable. Interdependent processes – such as global warming, the extinction of species, soil depletion and scarce energy resources – deeply alter the living conditions in our societies, from a material and symbolic point of view. These systemic transformations go well beyond the physical environment or climate change; they can be understood thanks to the concept of “global changes” that has become a main research topic in the fields of social and environmental sciences over the past thirty years (Buttel et al., 1990; Freedman, 2014).

    Professional Gestures and/or in Context

    To understand a didactic interaction, and the professional gestures that support it, it is necessary to be able to perceive it according to different scales of analysis, from the most local to the most global. While taking into account the context is essential, we should keep in mind that a certain number of events emerge in a localized way. Therefore, professional gestures, situation and context can hardly be considered independent to each other.

    Queerising the aesthetics

    In 1990, Judith Butler published Gender Trouble; a book which takes from French Theory to create an other, the Queer Theory, which does not bother with anatomical or social destiny to put forward the performativity of gender and of sexe. Quickly translated in many languages, Gender Trouble will have a very noticeable impact on literary and movie studies, rapidly generating a heuristic acting out. Paradoxically, the same can not be said about aesthetic studies. Why? What are the oppositions? How can the queer way of thinking give back their inherent infinite “openness” to works of art?

    The sea: paradoxes, challenges and challenges for the Gulf of Guinea states in the 21st century

    The Gulf of Guinea is a region where in its evolution, the sea has become increasingly important and the maritime issues find all their illustrations. The legal aspect finds the economic one, and meets geopolitics. The issue of safety at sea is visible. The sea is, in this region of the world, a place of cooperation and belligerence, of encounter but also of greed and separation. It is a very rich maritime area, but one that fails to generate prosperous states. The book project aims to elicit a plural reading on a transdisciplinary construction of the Gulf of Guinea sea. Through an opening, it challenges many fields for national, sub-regional or even international issues. He therefore encourages social scientists, lawyers, economists, political scientists, environmentalists, etc. to submit original contributions.
