    The Predatory Museum

    39th annual International Committee for Museology (ICOFOM) symposium

    Have visitors ever wondered how museums acquire the wonderful things they present to the enquiring public? It is certain that some do, but how many would see the museum as a predator?  Would they ever recognize the museum activity of acquiring the valued collections that are put on display as the result of a predatory undertaking? It is true that museums are discerning but eager recipients of gifts offered by individuals who cross their threshold and who are willing to donate or bequeath their treasured possessions to their local museum. These ongoing acts of charity aside, museums have other avenues of collection-building which they explore and have done so since their inception.

    An overview of digital social innovations

    Despite their great potential to contribute to social and environmental changes, digital social innovations (DSI) remain an underresearched field. The Digital Social Innovation for Europe (DSI4EU) project provides a list of DSI, others mention them as being instrumental in the so-called “collaborative economy” or “sharing economy”, and civil society actors like OuiShare place a strong emphasis on them. However, it is clear that DSI have not yet been systematically and extensively analysed. We wish that this special issue contributes to do so, by using a three-level approach (micro, meso, macro).

    Thinking and conducting the transformation of work

    The contribution of the ergological approach and the works of Yves Schwartz

    The ergological approach intends to the co-production of knowledge with the aim of transforming work and more generally the social life. As stated by the scientific project of the Workshop, “the ergological approach, in its history and in its issues, is a priori a subject of interest for everyone, each exploring in its own way the intricacies of human life, but also anyone who wants to think about its own activity and that of others, to reconsider the ways of doing and taking action, of opening new perspectives in ways of working, acting and living”. Yet this approach, which is particularly needed nowadays, is insufficiently known and sometimes considered complex. This is the state of play at the origin of this international workshop for which this call for papers is published.

    When anthropology meets geography

    Discerning locally embedded, yet globally connected socio-territorial struggles

    Identities are not only related to politics of assimilation and exclusion in the context of Nation-States, but also shape territorial configuration and arrangements in relation to geographical space. The latter becomes a territory for the accumulation of cultural symbols resulting from the different activities accomplished by a community living in that given space. In order to comprehend what drives various societies in resisting against the dispossession of land, in defending their resources and in opposing the political economies of States, new methodologies and interdisciplinary approaches are needed.

    Intepreting Africa

    Discourse and counter discourse in African literatures and in literature about Africa and written by the African diaspora

C'est un congrès multidisciplinaire qui se propose de questionner, sous diverses approches, l’Afrique et sa diaspora en tant qu’entité dominée, communauté d’appartenance et de destin, ou encore, communauté imaginée qui utilise la culture et les imaginaires populaires comme une mémoire de résistance et de dissidence.

    The rural Renaissance from one century to the next?

    Rural study days 2016 - 25 years of rural dynamics

    La parution de « La renaissance rurale » et la naissance du laboratoire « Dynamiques Rurales » sont quasiment concomitantes. Un quart de siècle plus tard, quel sort faisons-nous à « La renaissance rurale » ? L’objectif n’est pas tant de reprendre la polémique entre les tenants de la crise rurale et de sa disparition programmée, opposés aux tenants d’une renaissance rurale aux accents parfois localistes et militants. Il s’agit plutôt de revenir sur le fond, sur le projet qui a guidé l’ouvrage : une tentative de synthèse des réflexions des années 1970 et 1980 en vue de refonder l’objet « rural », de donner les grands axes d’un modèle de compréhension d’un rapport société – espace. Qu’en est-il aujourd’hui de ce projet ? Dans l’objectif de construire un bilan et des perspectives, nous proposons de centrer le colloque sur des points de controverse qui ont animé les études rurales durant ces dernières décennies.

    Repentance

    Origin(s) and latest developments

    The question of repentance now applies to the public sphere and concerns huge collective bodies as well as individuals. It has a complex relationship with history. Repentance has even become a global issue and now concerns a wide range of geographical and cultural areas as well taking on many forms referring to facts whose scale, temporal distance or context are in no way comparable with it.  Indeed, the roots of repentance are to be found in many traditions (religious, cultural, national and community) and nowadays, announcements (through the media at large) give rise to secular forms of repentance which are devoid of the dimensions that traditionally form the definition of repentance.

    Personal protective equipment: protecting but not always

    Laboreal journal

    Le recours aux équipements de protection individuelle (EPI) doit ainsi être la solution de la dernière chance et il ne suffit pas de les porter pour être protégé. Encore faut-il qu’ils soient adaptés au risque à couvrir et à la nature de l’activité, qu’ils soient correctement portés, stockés, entretenus et remplacés à temps. Dans le cadre de ce dossier, la revue Laboreal valorisera la multidisciplinarité – à savoir des contributions qui se situent dans le champ de l’ergonomie ou de la psychologie du travail, mais également de la sociologie du travail, des sciences de l’ingénieur et de toute approche qui privilégie les questions de la santé au travail.

    New ports, pioneer ports (XIVth-XXIth centuries)

    The Conference will address four topics: the creation of a port, the major enlargement of an existing port, the rapid transformation of a small port into a big harbour, or the temporary establishment of a port for economic or military reasons. The analysis includes commercial harbours and naval bases, as well as mixed ports. The concept of an “Atlantic port” refers to its location on the Atlantic Ocean or its extensions in the Channel, the North Sea and the Caribbean Sea. This includes the ports of the European, the African and American Atlantic littoral, as well as the metropolitan European and the African and American ports both as colonial ports and after their independence.

    The production of oil and amphora in the Guadalquivir basin in the Roman period

    Entre 2013 et 2015, un programme de recherches du LabEx Archimède a été consacré à l’économie rurale de la vallée du Genil à l’époque romaine à travers l’étude des ateliers d’amphores à huile. Des prospections pédestres ont concerné une trentaine d’ateliers pour lesquels on dispose désormais d’une riche documentation, issue d’un protocole d’étude homogène. Plus de 800 timbres ont été collectés et complètent les études antérieures dont la dernière en date est celle de P. Berni en 2008. Une production insoupçonnée et importante de Dr. 23 a également été mise en évidence qui montre la vitalité économique de cette zone à la fin de l’Antiquité.

    Political conflict, neoliberalism and "well-being" during the citizen revolutionary period in the Equator (2007-2013)

    Depuis l’arrivée au pouvoir de la révolution citoyenne en 2007, un scénario de haute conflictualité s’est ouvert en Équateur autour des nouvelles orientations de l’État, de l’économie et du modèle de développement. La dispute politique ne touche pas seulement les défenseurs et détracteurs des politiques du consensus de Washington, mais a aussi confronté ceux qui cherchent le dépassement de l’agenda néolibéral. Ainsi, à l’intérieur du gouvernement, dans le camp de la gauche équatorienne et au sein des mouvements sociaux et politiques, il existe une diversité de positions sur les voies possibles et nécessaires pour aller au-delà de l’« économie de marché », dominante dans le pays depuis le début des années 1980. Ce dossier s’intéresse à la fois au conflit politique autour des orientations de la transition dans le modèle de développement et aux spécificités politiques impulsées par le gouvernement pour dépasser cette transition.

    Languages of urbanization and visions of the city

    This section will focus on the representations of urban spaces and urban lives in the Americas, with special regard to the languages and the social practices that convey – or that have conveyed in the past – the idea of “making the city”. We are especially interested both in grassroots movements of urban resistance and in counter-hegemonic representations of the urban space. We welcome contributions on practices of re-appropriation of the city, on the strategies of resistance to the processes of gentrification, on the relationship between urban space and subaltern groups (minorities and/or subcultures) and on the ways in which the urban space has been represented, reimagined or invented in literature, cinema, comics, music, photography, television, visual arts.

    Political and Social Challenges to Walking in Town

    Revue « Espaces et sociétés »

    Urban planning has given walking two very different roles in the city: as a secondary mode of travel within the transportation system and as a leisure activity in privileged settings such as parks and centre-city tourist sites and shopping areas. Far from being universal, pedestrian access is thus quite unequal from one urban area or population group to another.
