    Envisioning Latin America: Power and Representation in audiovisual (re)productions

    Forma Revista d'Estudis Comparatius. Art, Literatura, Pensament

    This issue seeks to critically address power structures in audiovisual (re)productions in and from Latin America and discuss how these play a role in the societal construction and representation of individual and collective identities, the ‘us’ and the ‘other’. By doing so, it aims at understanding how these representations – and broader discourses associated therewith – can be critically examined through media productions (cinema, television, radio, photography etc.) and their use as historical sources.

    Counter-mapping in the Americas 16th-21st centuries

    Quels enjeux se trouvent derrière les dynamiques contre-cartographiques dans le contexte des Amériques ? Dans quel contexte les logiques contre-cartographiques peuvent-elles se mettre en place ? Comment se créent-elles et de quelles impulsions émanent-elles ? Quels savoirs sont mobilisés dans les processus d’élaboration contre-cartographique ? Dans quelle mesure parviennent-elles à déjouer les représentations hégémoniques de l’espace ?

    Power and media, media power Insights on the Americas

    Insights on the Americas

    For its 11th issue, RITA proposes to interrogate the links between power and media in the Americas. Several areas of debate can be suggested, although they should not be considered as exclusive. Articles making a critical analysis of official media as well as opposition media, in varied historical and geographical contexts, will of course be welcome. Other articles may deal with the treatment of popular movements by the media. Critical reflections on the relationship between media and economic power are also encouraged. The Thema section can also include analysis of the current diversification of information media by focusing, for instance, on the emergence of “alternative” media on the Internet, or on the power of fake news over the construction of collective representations.

    Waste Sciences, Knowledges and Practices

    European, North and Latin American perspectives

    Waste has emerged as a main environmental, economic and social issue in the last fifty years. The convergence of interests from various fields of reflection and action suggests a potential and fruitful “epistemological turn”. Yet this process is still on the verge of formalization. Research and decision on waste organizational and representational systems remain either fragmented or dependent on local context though some waste management recommendations arise from worries on the global consequences of discard. Hence this international symposium aims at opening transatlantic conversations between academic, technical and artistic areas in order to clarify how waste challenges our everyday sciences, knowledges and practices.

    Zone: the space of a life on the margins

    Espaces et sociétés

    While the everyday of "suburban youth" occupies the attention of French sociologists, the other face of the youths that have been relegated to "dropouts" (“zonards”) remains virtually invisible in terms of the social sciences. This issue aims to provide a first synthesis of French work on “the zone” as an area of life on the margins, and a presentation of pioneering English-language research in this field of study. This will be explore the range or meanings of  experiments whose originality derives from a shared nomadic lifestyle, keeping a distance from institutions, as well as normative territories. The expected proposals will favor the investigation of spaces and the constituent cultures of dropouts (squatters, punks, ravers ...).

    Texts, territories, technologies: another extraordinary journey

    6th Hispano-Luso- French conference

    Ce colloque interdisciplinaire se propose d'analyser l’évolution de ces savoirs mobilisés tels que la langue, la littérature, la géographie, les sciences « dures » ou encore l’histoire. La prise en compte de ces savoirs « hétérogènes », les mécanismes de leur transmission, ainsi que le développement individualisé que ces sciences ont eu, seront au cœur de nos interrogations.

    Madrid, traces and traced (1950-2000)

    La ville, lieu « où se trame l'existence humaine » comme le formule Lewis Mumford offre un carde de réflexion applicable aux villes modernes. Le choix de Madrid est un choix comme un autre, nul besoin de l'expliquer sinon que rien ne disposait cette bourgade médiévale à devenir capitale, encore moins métropole. Les approches seront croisées, sociologiques, urbanistiques, littéraires, linguistiques et historiques.

    Describing, inhabiting and governing Urban Fringe Landscapes

    Narbonne, France, 5th to 7th november, 2014

    The goal of this conference is to question European urban fringes, which we define as precise or graduated transitional spaces where the city leaves space for something else : countryside, forests, “nature,” wasteland or fallow awaiting projects... These urban fringes can be understood at different scales, from the overall agglomeration down to the quarter or even at the installation project scale. This conference is designed as a moment of exchange making it possible to compare research and management experiences around this original object concentrating numerous issues. Different axes of analysis are proposed : Landscapes and urban fringe physiognomies ; agricultures and cities ; nature and biodiversity ; Urban margins : marginalising and social mixing ; Urban limits under constraint: risks and protected spaces.

    Luxury in all its States: Foundations, Dynamic and Plurality

    This issue of “Revues Etudes Caribéennes” aims to reflect upon the concept of luxury, to invest the luxury in all its states. It comes to question the foundations of luxury, from the theory to the materiality, from the manufacture to the consumption, between provocative distinction and aesthetization in all walk of life. Within the context of this thematic issue, luxury is envisaged a multidisciplinary approach, ranging from philosophy to sociology, from the economy to the development of the territory... Imputs may approach luxury a specific angle (economics of luxury, the luxury throughout history). They can treat a particular dimension of luxury, through an emblematic product or construction of luxury territories. Special attention will be paid to the luxury industry with its brands and its logic of creation and production. Finally, luxury exist through the construction of its legends which are formed from many distinctive indicators that stimulate both the casual and the exclusive consumers.

    Communication in the tourist sector: strategies for all participants in the areas of tourism

    International conference

    Although the tourism communication concept is still to be defined precisely, this international conference aims at exploring the relationships between communication strategies for those who are involved in the tourism industry and tourists. A further complication is that lots of areas are more and more very proposed with a particular identifying emblem. Communication in the tourist industry today is diverse and, from a tourist’s point of view, very confusing. The Conference aims to provide a critical dialogue beyond disciplinary boundaries: Communication research, Geography, Cultural Studies, History, Sociology and Tourism Studies. We’d like to investigate in particular the areas and the actions of communication in the tourist sector.

Teatros, arquitetura e património na Península Ibérica" pretende abrir um diálogo entre estudiosos e técnicos protagonistas de ambos os países, responsáveis pelo estudo desta temática e pelo projecto e execução de muitas das intervenções recentes em espaços teatrais. O impacto destas realizações na deslocação dos novos equipamentos dos centros (históricos) para novas centralidades comerciais, a recuperação de teatros e auditórios como factores de redefinição do tecido urbano, a importância de novas linguagens e de formas de interacção do público com os espaços, a influência das novas tecnologias nas soluções arquitetónicas e cenográficas, são alguns dos temas a abordar no Simpósio.
