    Les outre-mers français face aux risques : gestion, acceptabilité sociale et conflictualité

    Revue « EchoGéo »

    Les onze territoires habités sur les trois océans qui constituent les outre-mers français, se caractérisent par une exposition à des aléas dont les effets peuvent être particulièrement dévastateurs. Les événements exceptionnels engendrent des crises et révèlent rapidement les défaillances des systèmes d’urgence notamment sanitaire. Une nouvelle façon d’appréhender les risques par la vulnérabilité et l’exposition des enjeux a conforté une logique institutionnelle, mais celle-ci se heurte, bien qu’en apparence plus participative, à l’opposition des habitants des espaces ultramarins. L’objectif de ce dossier de la revue Echogéo est précisément de mettre au centre de l’analyse le rapport des habitants ultramarins avec les risques auxquels ils sont confrontés et à leur gestion.

    Thinking cityness from East African cities

    “EchoGeo” – N° 67 (january-march 2024)

    This issue of EchoGeo seeks to explore East Africa’s contribution to the debate on cityness and city life in urban studies. This contribution has been growing over the past ten years, reflecting the accelerated urbanization of this part of the continent. Despite heterogeneous situations, the depth of the social transformations brought about by the urban transition has stirred major debates on city life and cityness in this part of Africa, once regarded as a bastion of African rurality. This initially led to the emergence of a scientific dialogue between East African cities themselves. However, this conversation has now opened up beyond this sub-region: researchers who work in East Africa have now engaged in broader international debates about city life, converse with urban scholars from other parts of the world, and are involved in comparative research projects that cross-cut regional divides (Rizzo and Atzeni, 2020).

    There and hereafter Chapels in ecclesial space of 17th -century France

    The formal or functionalist analysis of sacred space tends to see the ecclesiastical building as a juxtaposition of clearly distinct spaces - the nave, the choir, or the transept - the separation of which would reflect, in particular, the difference in status (clerics and laity). It is clear that by returning to the modern definition of the chapel, which is attached not to a space but solely to an altar, this cartography of ecclesial space is immediately confused. This colloquium aims to study the place of chapels within the ecclesial space in 17th century France and to evaluate their role in the definition of religious sentiment.

    L’emprise de la communication

    The Grip of Communication

    Pour ses dix ans d’existence, la revue Politiques de communication organise un colloque international dont l’ambition est de proposer une réflexion d’ensemble sur « l’emprise de la communication » dans la structuration des espaces sociaux contemporains. Il propose un bilan des travaux sur l’évolution des pratiques et représentations sociales de la communication et leurs implications organisationnelles. Il propose également d’interroger les rapports sociaux de domination - de genre, de classe, de « race », de génération et autres - dont la communication est un outil et parfois un révélateur.

    The French aeronautical industries and the world: international cooperation and internationalisation strategies from the Liberation to the 1980s

    This study day proposes to address several themes linked together by the relations that the French aeronautical industries have established and maintained with various countries and foreign aeronautical firms in a context of recovery, restructuring and development of this French industry. It is intended to highlight international industrial cooperation, its creation and implementation processes as well as the actors involved and their roles in these original partnerships. The aim of this study session is also to reveal the evolution of these forms of collective production and the specialisation of the actors involved during the period under consideration. Finally, it tends to show that far from being limited to industrial cooperation, the global ambition of French aeronautical firms also developed without foreign aid thanks to internationalisation strategies that evolved during the said period.

    Fictions of terror in the Southern Cone and Brazil: recent representations

    Amerika n°26

    This issue of Amerika will explore Southern Cone’s and Brazil’s horrific and terrific recent literature. In Latin America, violence is ubiquitous producing fear and anguish, and these emotions can be contagious. Fear and anguish are intrinsically related to terror, and they can take place both at a collective level and at an individual level. Many authors use terror to deal with subjects such as politics, family, violence, poverty, public security, social radicalization, the body and the feminine condition.

    « Dans l’espace, personne ne vous entend crier, ou peut-être bien que si »

    “In space no one can hear you scream, or can they?”

    « Dans l’espace personne ne vous entend crier », l’accroche publicitaire, devenue iconique, du film Alien de Ridley Scott souligne le rôle prépondérant joué par les « voix, sons, bruits, silences » en science-fiction. Pour Nis Gron, « William Whittington a démontré combien Alien (1979) a été un tremplin essentiel qui a montré l’importance et a permis le développement de la bande sonore, notamment dans l’utilisation expressionniste des effets sonores, des sons ambiants et des bruitages dans les films de science-fiction ». La science-fiction joue avec les complexités et les contradictions des « sons et silences » à travers les bandes sonores et au sein des intrigues.

    Financing agricultural and food transformations. Practices, mechanisms, collective action, and public policies

    « Revue internationale des études du développement » n°254

    This issue is a continuation of the series of thematic issues that the Revue Tiers Monde, now the Revue internationale des études du développement has regularly published for 25 years on the subject of financial inclusion (no. 145, 1996; no. 172, 2002; no. 197, 2009; no. 225, 2016). This issue calls for original papers based on field research that contribute to knowing how the transformation of agricultural and rural systems in emerging and developing countries is financed, and more specifically, how farmers are financed. It aims, in particular, at delving into the new practices in the field of agricultural and rural financing, which is often marginalized in development financing policies.

    Refugees in the world: history and emergency

    Il s’agit de retracer l’émergence de la notion de réfugié au XXe siècle, l’évolution historique de leur nombre et de leur situation dans le monde, avec un pic au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, et un second pic de nos jours, notamment depuis 2015, avec aujourd’hui un chiffre de 80 millions de réfugiés. L’approche sera aussi juridique et humanitaire, avec des interventions de spécialistes et de responsables associatifs. La soirée d’études analysera la crise de l’accueil des réfugiés, en Europe et dans le monde, et ces réflexions s’inscrivent à la fois dans le champ de l’histoire, de la géographie, de la sociologie, de la science politique, des relations internationales, et du droit international.

    Anthropology and photography

    “Civilisations” journal (vol. 72, 2023)

    We are looking for contributions that explore the technical, methodological, social, political, scientific and ethical aspects arising from the use of photography in anthropological research, as well as reflections on the questions raised by the “persistence of images” (Le Gall 2014) that go beyond the contexts of academic production. This issue seeks to explore the relation between the anthropological desire to understand humankind, and the practice of photography and will feature articles focusing on the photographic process from four different angles, which may be interpreted quite broadly: 1-The anthropologist-photographer, 2-The anthropologist and photographies, 3-Photographic anthropology, 4-Anthropology in photographs.

    Socio-spatial representations and relationship with others

    The fifth call for papers from the International Conference of the Cartotête network intends to bring together researchers interested in the impact of the relationship with others in the process of cognitive mapping. Our biannual conference will be devoted to themes which aim to better understand to which extent the relationship with others affects the social representations of geographical space, so as for broadening the horizon of research works carried out on the collective memory and the social space. Relevance will be granted to the alterity, especially in its contemporary and concrete reality without excluding its symbolic dimensions.

    « Heureux ceux qui croient sans avoir vu »

    Pouvoirs et limites, les paradoxes du sensible dans l’appréhension chrétienne du divin entre les XVe et XVIIe siècles

    In mobilizing an intermedial as well as interdisciplinary approach, the aim of these two days is to reflect together on the various solutions (philosophical, material, legal, theological, devotional, etc.) implemented by modern Christianity in order to resolve an age-old paradox: how to reconcile the nature of human perception, which is above all sensory, with that of the object it is trying to perceive, and whose divine nature is precisely infinite, unattainable and elusive ?

    Gay, lesbian and queer musicological research: Modest veil on classical music?

    In the wake of the second generation of English gay, lesbian and queer studies, we aim to promote the questioning of French musicological practices, and then to produce new thought about composers, works and aesthetics, specifically in the classical music area. Would the scarcity of French musicological research dedicated to these issues be the result of a phenomenon of invisibilization? This epistemological point of view will allow us to reconsider Susan McClary’s words: to what degree could the disclosure or the concealment of a sexual orientation or gender identity enlighten musicological perspectives?

    Data Intelligibility Manufacturing in Organizations

    Revue « Communication et organisation »

    L’enjeu de ce numéro 64 de la revue Communication et organisation est de s’interroger sur le sens attribué aux données qui prolifèrent dans les organisations. Il s’agit, dans un contexte où le travail conjoint avec les informaticiens et les statisticiens est une réalité organisationnelle prégnante, d’envisager les choix épistémologiques, méthodologiques et professionnels qui donnent du sens aux données organisationnelles issues du monde digital. L’objectif consistera à comprendre comment s’y prennent les organisations pour passer d’un entrepôt de données accumulées à une plateforme de ressources mobilisables et exploitables pour leur conférer du sens.
