    Alexandre von Humboldt et les sciences du système Terre

    Alexander von Humboldt and the Earth System Sciences

    L'idée de ce colloque d'une journée sur Alexandre von Humboldt est de réunir des spécialistes de diverses disciplines qui couvrent aujourd'hui les nombreux domaines auxquels le travail et les idées de von Humboldt ont contribué, en particulier dans son œuvre maîtresse Kosmos (1845-1862). Nous voulons montrer comment le travail scientifique de ce plus grand encyclopédiste de la première moitié de l'Europe du XIXe siècle est plus que jamais au cœur des questions liées à notre planète d'origine, la Terre, et aux questions posées par notre entrée dans l’Anthropocène.

    #MariellePresente - Transnational Resistances

    The Gender and Diversity Journal, a feminist and queer review from the northeastern region of Brazil, invites everyone to submit articles, essays, interviews, field journals, reports and other texts for the special issue entitled "#MariellePresente: Transnational Resistances". The texts must describe and analyze the transnational responses following the assassination of the Brazilian Marielle Franco. She was a black woman from the favela, political activist, feminist and lesbian. She was murdered at the corner of a street in Rio de Janeiro in March 2018. Given the political nature of her assassination, many actions denouncing the crime were organized around the world.

    Gendered Species: Colette, Gender and Sexual Identities

    Espèces genrées : Colette, le genre et les identités sexuées

    Although French woman writer Colette was indifferent to and even critical of the feminist movement of the early 1900s, in the way she lived her life as in her fiction, she exemplified financial and social independence and shame-free sexuality, or what would be call today “gender fluidity”. This international conference will show how Colette represents a vibrant and radical expression of feminism in tune with the #MeToo spirit in today's society

    "Creative State-Making" & Some (Un)intended Consequences of Islamization

    Surprising Trajectories in Islam, Gender & Politics in Southeast Asia

    Islam in Southeast Asia has enjoyed a thriving trajectory in recent years. This is in large part attributable to various state-led Islamization movements that have succeeded in weaving the values and tenets of Islam into the very fabric of Muslims’ everyday life, thereby fortifying the power of the state that claims to embody the divine authority and immutability of Islam. But while the state imagines itself to be the legitimate (and only) “guardian” of Islam, its attempts to monopolize Islamic interpretations and institutions also – perhaps unintentionally – open up a more complex, discursive space that allows non-state actors to submit to, challenge, or appropriate and refashion various forms of symbolic state power, often in unpredictable ways.

    Urban and architectural identities in Mediterranean cities

    Identités urbaines et architecturales dans les villes méditerranéennes

    The architectural and urban diversity characterising mediterranean city is inseparable from their identity. It seems clear at that this diversity and multiplicity of different identities shoud be considered as one of the greatest cultural and human values. The coexistence of forms in time and space, the blending of urban and architectural cultures, influences and contaminations, even the contrast and and contradictions of identity that are revealed in the mediterranean urban  territory reflect the stratification of the city in its pragmatics implications and its identity meanings. Today, in a context of a competition and attractiveness betwen territories, several mediterranean cities are going through a period of profound changes. Faced with these transformations, the reference to "identity territories" (Troin, 2004) and the ability of the city to build an identity and speared it among the population are called into question.

    State Promotion of “Shared Values”

    IPSA Lisbonne 2020

    In a number of contemporary liberal democracies, governments from different sides of the political spectrum appear to be trumpeting ‘shared values’ as a remedy to social divisiveness and political disengagement. The public purpose of promoting the values that ‘we’ allegedly have in common gives ground to a series of state actions and public policies, such as: integration contracts, tests for immigrants, moral and civic education courses in schools, military and civic service (either compulsory or voluntary), ‘de-radicalisation’ programs as well as programs to enhance gender equality and combat violence against women, professional trainings in the management of cultural and religious diversity for public officials.

    Merleau-Ponty and Technology

    “Chiasmi International” n° 22, 2020

    The question of technology is not often directly addressed by Merleau-Ponty and is rarelythematized as such. The philosopher does not explicitly elaborate what today we would define as aphilosophy of technology or a theory of techniques. And yet, this issue often appears in thebackground of his analysis and sometimes it even constitutes the pivot of his questioning of themutual implication of the sense and the sensible, nature and culture.

    Regions and Regionalism in Canada: constructing and managing political, social and cultural territory

    In a contemporary age in which “think globally, act locally” has become a slogan, has the propensity to favour local initiatives resulted in shifting loyalties, has it modified the level at which citizens feel their strongest sense of belonging? Has it altered conceptions of citizenship? Has it had any impact on the locus of power? Which conceptual tools are most pertinent when trying to apprehend the social, cultural and political dimensions of regions and regionalism in Canada? How has the territorial notion of “region”, which comes out of the European tradition, been articulated to adapt to the Canadian context, especially with regard to the question of belonging (communities, nations, etc)?

    When real work is taboo

    Revue Laboreal journal: July 2020

    Les chercheurs et intervenants qui placent l’activité réelle de travail au cœur de leurs analyses et projets d’intervention sont parfois confrontés à de nombreuses difficultés dans la conduite de leurs projets. Car l’écart entre le travail prescrit et le travail réel ne fait pas toujours partie des évidences de leurs interlocuteurs. Pourtant, toute activité humaine est inanticipable totalement, et les règles qui tentent de la normaliser sont inévitablement redéfinies dans l’exercice de l’activité elle-même. Mais cette approche de l’activité a des exigences méthodologiques : il s’agit d’ancrer les démarches dans ce qui constitue le réel des situations de travail ; et la connaissance de celui-ci exige de le mettre en débat avec celles et ceux qui, à plusieurs égards, s’y engagent. L’objectif de ce dossier est de porter dans le champ d’une réflexion collective les difficultés qui jalonnent les projets pour lesquels le travail réel ne peut être un sujet tabou.
