    What colour is blood? The colour of blood and the semantics of race

    Couleurs de sang, sémantiques de race

    Ce colloque invite à réfléchir aux dynamiques socio-culturelles, aux processus à la fois de hiérarchisation et de créolisation de ces sociétés, et à des éléments qui au fil du temps ont contribué à altérer, à perpétuer ou même effacer les représentations socioraciales de l’Autre et les catégories qui en résultèrent.

    5th international congress “Sport, doping and society”

    The 5th international congress “Sport, doping and society” is organized by the Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport (AEPSAD) and the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). Under the theme “Think Clean”, there will be presented the results of scientific researches and new methodologies in the field of doping in sport from the specific perspective of Human and Social Sciences. We believe that this initiative will contribute to identify the factors that influence the use of doping substances and methods. From this knowledge we hope to foster future prevention and doping control and to promote ethical behavior in sport.

    Tourism, travels, Utopias

    Review Études Caribéennes n° 38, 2017

    This issue of the Revue Études Caribéennes (Journal of Caribbean Studies) addresses the meaning of travelling and tourism in the context of a globalized economy and culture and the turbulent geopolitical changes occurred in recent decades. Is Utopia, a concept of utmost importance in the genesis and purpose of tourism, still a relevant topic today? This concept has a profound influence on our behavior toward the Other and Elsewhere. However, it is necessary to question the very meaning of utopias in the world of travel, especially if they are primarily considered as tourist acts of consuming places. Beyond the initial fantasy and vain exoticism, are imagination and dreams still relevant topics in an era of hyperconnectivity when planning our vacations, adventures or expeditions?

    Andean America - from concept to project

    Local representations and the exterior gaze (18th-19th century)

    Afin de contribuer au renouvellement des interprétations sur l’indépendance des pays andins en vue des célébrations de 2021, on dépassera les explications qui ont marqué la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, à savoir de pays à la dérive et d’une indépendance concédée en révisant deux siècles d'histoire coloniale et républicaine, des Lumières à la Belle Époque selon la périodisation française. Par leur approche pluridisciplinaire, les communications s’appuieront sur des textes inédits ou inexplorés, des auto-documents de nature non fictionnelle – rapports militaires, correspondances diplomatiques, chroniques religieuses, récits de voyage, mémoires, etc. –  ou des documents iconographiques.

    The Transatlantic Embrace: Spanish Civil War in America’s Intimate Distance

    "Forma" Revista d'estudis comparatius. Art, literatura, pensament

    Spanish Civil War has been studied under its multiple angles. This can also be said about the literature concerning this topic: novels, poems, and all literary forms generated by this armed conflict (both by Spanish and foreign intellectuals) have been commented by academic criticism from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. However, fewer approaches have set the axis of their critical focus on the importance of the Spanish conflict in America and its decisive relevance as a part of a phenomenon that is also American. This special number of the FORMA journal sets out to give a voice to all types of contributions able to shed a new light on this fundamental aspect of the war, whose causes and consequences are clearly rooted in Spain, but whose horizon overflows the peninsular and continental borders and requires an inevitably transatlantic point of view.

    Sedition and Revolt in Modern European Political Thought

    As part of the ANR project “Cultures of Revolts and revolutions in Europe”, we wish to bring together international contributors in a discussion of the european political thought brought about by various uprisings between the end of the Middle Ages and the modern era, whether it be reflections over a particular event, or more general considerations over the causes of sedition and protest movements, the means to prevent or suppress new episodes, and their adverse – or regenerative – effects.

    Women and political activism against Latin American dictatorships

    “Orda” journal

    The main objective of this issue is to gather works of researchers from different countries, diverse fields of knowledge and several theoretical as well as methodological perspectives, so as to feed the debate on the issues in keeping with female participation during the dictatorships of Latin America. Contributions should tackle the subject of women activists but they may also consider in a less strict sense the link between women and activism. We wish to address the issue of activism in a broad sense to include a wide range of social movements in which women have played a significant role.

    Images and uses of the people in African literatures and of the diaspora

    Le « peuple » désigne, généralement, des couches sociales démunies aux contours indéfinis, aux identités mouvantes et corvéables à merci. Mot polysémique et polyvalent, « le peuple » est aussi perçu, entre autres dénominations, comme synonyme de populace, foule, masse anonyme, bas peuple, petit peuple, gens du peuple, ceux d’en-bas, basses classes et classes laborieuses. Dans les pratiques sociales comme dans les usages linguistiques, est dit « populaire » ce qui s’exclut du modèle élevé, à l’instar du parler non conventionnel rebelle au niveau de langue courant ou soutenu. Souvent associé aux marginaux, aux déclassés, aux laissés-pour-compte, le « peuple » est un sujet récurrent de l’histoire littéraire universelle, tout comme de la création littéraire et artistique d’Afrique et de la diaspora, de la période coloniale à nos jours.

    Writing history for young people

    The past two decades have seen an increase in the number of publications in France on the subject of youth literature, which have approached the subject from various historical angles. Generally tending to favour the colonial period or periods of conflict and mainly focusing on the issue of propaganda, these studies have examined the creation of a colonial or war culture for children. Most notable among these studies are La guerre des enfants: 1914-1918 (The children’s war: 1914-1918) by Stéphane Audoin-Rouzeau (1993) and, more recently, Enfants en temps de guerre et littératures de jeunesse XXe-XXIe siècles (Wartime children and youth literature from the 20th-21st centuries), edited by Catherine Milkovitch-Rioux et al (2013), and Enfance et colonies: fictions et représentations (Children and colonies: stories and representations) (volume 3 of the online journal Strenæ, edited by Mathilde Lévêque, 2012). In an extension of these studies, this volume of Amnis aims to invite discussion more specifically on the writing of history for young people.

    The purpose of this corpus is to simultaneously question “gender relationships” and “the relationship to work” in a context where these registers (and their intersections) have been exacerbated by tensions between emancipation dynamics and the renewal or aggravation of a domination logic.
