    PhD positions for the research project Gangs, Gangsters, and Ganglands: Towards a Global Comparative Ethnography” (GANGS)

    The project “Gangs, Gangsters, and Ganglands: Towards a Global Comparative Ethnography” (GANGS) aims to develop a systematic comparative investigation of global gang dynamics, to better understand why they emerge, how they evolve over time, whether they are associated with particular urban configurations, how and why individuals join gangs, and what impact this has on their potential futures. It draws on ethnographic research carried out in Nicaragua, South Africa, and France, adopting an explicitly tripartite focus on “Gangs”, “Gangsters”, and “Ganglands” in order to better explore the interplay between group, individual, and contextual factors. The first will consider the organisational dynamics of gangs, the second will focus on individual gang members and their trajectories before, during, and after their involvement in a gang, while the third will reflect on the contexts within which gangs emerge and evolve.

    Birth in the South, birth in the North - what convergences?

    Dans nombre de pays, les évolutions sociales et économiques, parfois associées à des politiques encourageant la limitation des naissances, ont entraîné une rapide transition démographique de la fécondité. Cette évolution parfois extrêmement rapide a favorisé une convergence avec les niveaux enregistrés dans les pays du Nord. Au-delà d’une similitude de niveaux, ce colloque souhaite interroger la signification et les conséquences de ces évolutions dans différentes sphères en lien avec la procréation, la famille, la parentalité.
