    Thinking the Latin American right wings

    IVth International Congress

    The IVth International Congress Thinking the Latin American right wings follows the three previous ones held in France (2014), Argentina (2016) and Brazil (2018), which have permitted the constitution of a community of researchers working on Latin American right-wings. Several specialists from different countries and disciplines have joined in this network, in order to promote projects and studies on this theme, and stimulated the development of new issues related to this political family. The use of various methodologies such as the analysis of political traditions and cultures, representations and imaginaries, identities, networks, sensitivities and memories have made it possible to consolidate a field of study that has become relevant to understand current Latin American political scene.

    Work, heritage and development

    5th congress of the International Ergology Society

    La démarche de l’ergologie offre-t-elle une approche pertinente dans le champ des questions intégrant le travail, le patrimoine et le développement ? Dans quelle mesure sa contribution est-elle singulière et innovante ? Afin d’établir un bilan et de tracer des perspectives, le principal objectif du cinquième congrès de la Société internationale d’ergologie (SIE) est de mettre en débats, au cours de trois journées, les travaux qui, en plusieurs lieux du monde, ont fait l’option de s’engager dans cette réflexion, tout en ayant parfois privilégié auparavant d’autres cadres de référence. La diversité des approches constituera un atout essentiel de cette rencontre qui se veut donc pluridisciplinaire.

    Archives, history and memory from the age of revolution until the first world war

    The long nineteenth century witnessed four major historical processes of the utmost significance: the modernisation of the state, nation-state building, the independence of the American colonies from Europe, and the colonisation of the African and Asian continents. The modernising of the state entailed its growth and bearing on the economy and society, the widening of the state’s role, the “bureaucratization” of its administrative apparatus, and protracted democratisation. Along came the reduction or removal of competing powers, namely the church and aristocracy. The state also became a vehicle for the enshrinement of private property, free enterprise and, increasingly, the freedom of association among citizens. In addition, the modernised state would favour and support nation-state building in a number of ways.

    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. For its thirteenth issue, RITA will dedicate its section Thema to American cities facing global changes.

    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.

    Thinking commemorations like ritualised practical spaces

    At the crossroads of history and anthropology

    C’est à partir des pratiques commémoratives et des luttes politiques et sociales auxquelles elles sont associées que nous aimerions repenser les temps et les espaces des colonialités contemporaines. En nous interrogeant, sur les modalités pratiques d’exposition et de ritualisation des mémoires politiques en proie à des hégémonies qui leur sont exogènes. De nombreux événements historiques survenus dans le monde, par exemple au Chiapas au Mexique, ou bien au Brésil, ici et là en Afrique par exemple en Algérie, pays qui a présenté des commémorations politiques par la négative, ou bien encore en Europe (Irlande du Nord, Portugal, Catalogne) tout comme la récente contestation sociale et politique en France, fournissent de nombreux arguments pour penser dans ce sens. L’objectif de ce colloque sera de décrire et de comprendre les modalités de fonctionnement de certaines pratiques mémorielles contre-hégémoniques, dans leurs diversités, et l’institution des traditions qui en découlent.

    Communisms and political dissent

    The idea of communism and the great hope brought by the Russian revolution of 1917 marked, as a utopia and as political praxis, the contemporary social thought and the International Workers' Movement, between heated quarrels and endless controversies, sowing dissensions, verbal wars, profound sectarianisms and irreconcilable divergencies. Distinct societal models, organisational conceptions and political cultures have developed like different branches of a common trunk, becoming autonomous and crystallising.

    Fields of collaboration in contemporary art practices

    Can all art be considered collaborative? What has motivated so many artists, in recent decades, to organize in collectives and participate in collaborative projects? Does collaboration in the arts play a major role in redefining the art world and in the production of new subjectivities? How do collaborative art practices challenge the myths of creative genius and artistic individuality?

    When women film: the documentary in the Iberian peninsula and in the Latin-American continent

    Ce colloque international et interuniversitaire aura pour objet l'étude de la production documentaire réalisée par des femmes des pays de la péninsule ibérique ou du continent latino-américain. Il a pour visée de repenser, dans une perspective transdisciplinaire, les cadres épistémologiques de l’analyse de l’image documentaire. Il réfléchira aux manières dont les films documentaires, maintenus dans une double marginalité, celle du documentaire et celle due au statut des femmes, ont agi comme des opérations d’intelligibilité du monde.

    The Hydraulics in Monumental Buildings

    The hydraulic system is an architectural subsystem that can only be understood in view of the dual constitution of its structure: one at ground level, that referrers to potable water (lower hydraulic subsystem), and other concerning rainwater (upper hydraulic subsystem). They both involve aspects of major importance for the functioning of any building: catchment, distribution and evacuation of the waters. In the last decade, research was carried out on the hydraulic component of historical architecture, either religious or civil, considering technical and artistic issues, not only in Portugal, but throughout Europe.

    The epoch of space. State and new perspectives

    For centuries, the study of time was one of the main academic interests in the field of Humanities. However, in the second half of the 20th century, most scholars and philosophers shifted their focus to the question of space. The interest in studying this in the field of the arts has increased significantly in recent years, and is especially noticeable in the case of literary creations.The growing influence of ecocriticism and geocriticism is especially noticeable in digital humanities. The bridges recently built between these fields are already proving to be productive, as they have led to the development of new tools, approaches, and methodologies, such as deep mapping techniques and the spatial humanities. How have the disciplines evolved in recent years? Do we need to redefine the key concepts regarding space and place? Has our relationship with territory changed? Have we produced new ways of inhabiting space?
