    Education, ethics and politics in contemporary times

    Dans un moment où l’air du temps impose des ruptures (et pas encore une continuité) par rapport à l’ordre établi, la relation entre éthique, politique et éducation se donne à penser. Non pas comme « objet », mais comme interpellation vitale. La pensée française joue un rôle pivot en ce qui concerne les questions contemporaines d’intégration des différences culturelles (la philosophie de la différence) et de réflexion sur les enjeux politiques qui en découlent (l’idée d’une démocratie à venir).

    American cities in the 21st Century : linguistic, cultural and social representations

    Amerika volume 9

    Volume 9 in the Amerika series will have an interdisciplinary perspective: encompassing aesthetic representations (literature, cinema, art), urbanism, sociology, anthropology and linguistics. This plural approach will enable us to establish the basis of an analysis of the new “realities” of American cities in the 21st Century, whilst examining the paths followed by aesthetic and social representations of these new urban landscapes. The idea of devoting this volume of Amerika to the various representations of 20th century American cities emanated from the theme of the 19th Congress of the German Association of Hispanists which took place in Munster from 20-23 March 2013. The panel, comprising 20 specialists, was organized by Sabine Schlickers and Victoria Torres.

    Scholarship, prize and job offer - History

    History: change and continuity in a Global World

    PIUDHIST is an inter-university doctoral programme in which History is viewed from an inter-disciplinary point of view. Despite its unique character, History is regarded here as a field of knowledge which cannot do without a permanent cross fertilization with other areas in the humanities and the social sciences. In our vision, this is also why we consider apposite to attach, as a subtitle for this programme, the words “change and continuity in a global world”.

    Confused interfaces: norms, classifications and the primacy of language in questions

    TansOceanik international seminar

    La proposition de cette rencontre et d’essayer de questionner les normes essentialisantes – telle qu’exprimées dans les discriminations raciales -, les classifications – qui excluent certaines couches de la population – et le primat du langage – qui évacue la cognition des expériences sensibles, telle la culture des signes des sourds. Nous proposons de croiser des expériences existentielles à la frontière de trois oppositions classiques : masculin/féminin, humain/non humain, vivant/mort en invitant des spécialistes travaillant sur des terrainsde contextes culturels différents à discuter entre eux et avec des philosophes et des psychanalystes.

    War, University and Science

    Call for Papers

    During the contemporaneity, military conflicts often provoked junctures of rupture and transformation in pre-existing realities, whether in political, economic or social contexts, or in cultural, scientific and intellectual domains, endued, sometimes of more conservative typologies or yet of a more modernising nature. In this sense, we intend to initiate an interdisciplinary debate on the problematic of "War, University and Science", bearing in mind these multiple relationships and interdependencies, as well as the associated epistemological problematic.

    Pratiques et poétiques du chapitre du XIXe au XXIe siècle

    Bien qu'il soit un aspect évident de notre pratique de lecture quotidienne, le chapitre est un élément de poétique négligée par la critique, à l'exception de la thèse récente d'Ugo Dionne, La voie aux chapitres, consacrée aux modes de structuration romanesque dans l'Ancien Régime. Dionne y analyse comment le XIXe siècle voit une généralisation du chapitre, ce dernier devenant à la fois systématique et moins visible. Pourtant, le chapitre comme unité minimale du roman, comme scansion on élément structurel, sert de fil d'Ariane à l'écriture comme à la lecture. On voudrait ainsi esquisser une poétique du chapitre, en tenant ensemble les deux questions de la fabrique du texte et de sa réception, du chapitre utilisé comme moyen de production du sens et comme outil de lecture : telle est l'ambition de ce colloque.

    Thinking rights in Latin America in the 20th century

    This conference purports to think about the right-wing in twentieth-century Latin America. We shall seek to discover whether the current Latin American right-wing movements are merely the prolongation of XIXth century conservatism, or if a series of events might explain the emergence of new actors in the XXth century. This will enable us to enquire into which geographical scale - national or continental - is relevant when examining this concept. We expect papers from scholars in various social sciences, based on monographic and comparative historical examples. Our purpose is to historicize the concept and the object.

    The problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology

    Antropológicas Journal

    The journal Antropológicas is accepting proposals for publication in its next issue that will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology. Manuscripts should be submitted to the page http://revistas.rcaap.pt/antropologicas/login by the 28th of February of 2013. Antropológicas’ number 13th will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology, because since the academic statement of its field of knowledge, ethnographic practice and anthropological writing had many debates, both for the originality of the methodology and the scientific accuracy required by their professionals. Among social sciences, anthropology was the one where theoretical discussion about its rationale demanded a greater critical capacity, by placing into question its methodological grounds.

  • Call for papers - Representation

    Violence, genocide, wars, killings, feminicide, crime, deaths, and aesthetic representations in Latin America (19th-21st c.)

    We propose that this number be an interdisciplinary approach, one which makes use of history, sociology, anthropology, diplomacy, gender and otherness: aesthetic representations of any kind. The historical period that focuses on the eighth issue of Amerika goes from the nineteenth century to the present day. All the work relating to the past prior to the nineteenth century, linking it to the more recent periods, is welcome as well. This reflection is the product of the exchange and discussion between the University of Antioquia (Colombia) and the Université de Rennes 2 (France).

    Anthropology and popular culture

    El Filandar / O Fiadeiro journal

    Ainda que sempre abertos a todos os temas, este ano daremos especial atenção aos artigos que se dediquem à cultura material, desde a arquitetura popular até à investigação sobre objetos ligados a todo o tipo de crenças e costumes (ex-votos, iconografia, indumentária, etc.). Empenhando-nos em ter em particular consideração a cultura de fronteira, incluiremos uma nova secção votada a pessoas de ambos os lados da fronteira que se dedicam ou dedicaram a um ofício ou atividade tradicional. Contaremos a sua história de vida e a sua relação com a sua arte ou o seu trabalho. No novo número, também haverá um dossiê etnográfico com a exposição variada da visão pictórica que pessoas de ambos os lados da fronteira têm da sua terra, da sua região.
