    The legacy of the arts: ideas and representations

    The transmission of knowledge through tradition, orality and Academia

    The second edition of the conference on doctoral studies in art and musicology aims to focus on research on the transmission of knowledge through the arts as a means and source of knowledge in the art world. The images and musical documents that have been preserved from ancient times to the present day - throughout the world - have made it possible to understand aspects of the social, cultural and religious life of many civilizations and also to be the same reflection of these. In this way, Art and Music, as resources, have been one of the key elements to be able to understand a culture since it has been the mechanism through which humans have been able to capture and transmit ideas and knowledge.

    Doing with Delphy

    Nouvelles questions féministes journal, special issue

    Pionnière et inspiratrice d’un féminisme matérialiste toujours vivant parce qu’en débats, Christine Delphy continue d’y occuper une place prépondérante à de multiples égards. En tant que théoricienne dont les idées restent incisives et indispensables pour qui veut penser le monde en féministe. Mais aussi, et autant, en tant que militante ayant engagé une lutte radicale contre le patriarcat. Ce numéro hors-série de Nouvelles questions féministes (NQF) cherche à relayer la vitalité et l’actualité de l’œuvre de Christine Delphy. Cela, en invitant des auteur·e·s et militant·e·s féministes à présenter des textes illustrant comment elles et ils s’approprient ou se sont appropriés ses travaux. Dans une perspective radicale, chère à Delphy, notre appel ne se limite pas à l’influence de son œuvre dans le champ académique : il vise à recueillir des contributions portant sur la manière dont les textes ou les interventions de Delphy enrichissent et questionnent de nos jours la réflexion scientifique comme l’action militante, mais aussi les postures personnelles.

    Trade unions, conflictand direct action in the Americas and in Europe

    From the end of the 19th century to the 1980s

    Le syndicalisme peut se définir, sur un plan général, comme un outil collectif de défense des intérêts matériels et moraux d'un groupe de salarié·e·s, organisé·e·s par métier ou par branche d'activité ou, de manière croissante au cours du XXe siècle, sur une base intercatégorielle. Très tôt, dès la fin du XIXe, et indépendamment des régimes politiques au sein desquels il évolue, les militant·e·s syndicaux·le·s se posent la question des modalités d'action collective et de défense des intérêts moraux et matériels du mouvement ouvrier, entendu au sens large du terme. L'action du Premier mai 1886 à Chicago et le massacre de Haymarket Square, qui lui succède, le 4 mai, sont, en ce sens, des moments fondateurs de la période à laquelle le colloque sera consacré.

    Digital work: more autonomy or a new subjugation of work?

    Socioscapes. International Journal of Societies, Politics and Cultures

    With digitisation of work a new frontier has opened up in the field of work and exploitation of work, which the current health and economic crisis is widening. The practice and the myth of “smart working” are the signs of a planetary dynamic of capitalist matrix which presents the possible liberation of labour within the framework of a new alienation and subordination of labour to the imperatives of market. Aim of this issue is to critically analyse this dynamic, paying attention to the relationship between “digital platforms” and their “applications”: alongside the intense development of digital technology, we are witnessing the expansion of different modes of intense exploitation of the workforce. Usually these new forms of work are presented as free and autonomous “services”. From these transformations processes, in which the technological element appears on the surface as prevalent on the structure of social relations that actually subsume it, important issues emerge.

    "Chatterbox scribblers"? Women in journals (1918-1968-2018)

    « Il est connu que la femme est bavarde et écrivassière ; elle s’épanche en conversations, en lettres, en journaux intimes. Il suffit qu’elle ait un peu d’ambition, la voilà rédigeant ses mémoires, transposant sa biographie en roman, exhalant ses sentiments dans des poèmes [...] « Les femmes ne dépassent jamais le prétexte », me disait un écrivain. C’est assez vrai. Encore toutes émerveillées d’avoir reçu la permission d’explorer ce monde, elles en font l’inventaire sans chercher à en découvrir le sens ». Le jugement quelque peu sévère que Simone de Beauvoir émet dans Le Deuxième Sexe contredit ce qui s’est passé en réalité, et cela a été souligné à maintes reprises : les femmes ont beaucoup écrit et, parmi les formes d’expression qu’elles ont investies, il y a l’écriture dans les revues. « Je parlerai de l’écriture féminine : de ce qu’elle fera », écrit Cixous dans Le rire de la Méduse, et c’est bien de ce qu’a fait l’écriture féminine dans et de la presse périodique (journaux, brochures, revues, etc) que nous entendons parler et faire parler dans ce colloque, en nous intéressant aussi bien à l’analyse des formes de créations artistiques, qu’à l’appréhension du discours médiatique permettant par exemple de saisir les modes de construction du genre.

    Law, ethics and fieldwork: how are research practices changing?

    In the analogue era, legal rules were not always known, their interpretation was limited to the question of copyright or respect for the privacy of persons recorded in interviews, and anonymization seemed to be the answer to all outstanding questions. On the contrary, the digital era has given rise to a real reflection on these issues, challenging some of the working methods on the ground. From now on, in addition to the new rules brought by GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), researchers must know how to implement a data management plan or when to inform Data Protection Authorities such as the CNIL (French National Commission of Informatics and Liberty) about methods used to process personal data. They must also take into account the following issues: how to reference witnesses and recordings, what are the rules of long-term preservation, historical exception or data destruction… Can the researcher make an informed decision while on fieldwork while being fully aware of the rights, duties and on consequences of their corpus creation, the constraints on exploitation, dissemination or transmission? What consequences could this have on the gathering, archiving and process of return to the informants?

    The anomaly in question(s)

    TRANS- 26 (2020)

    Of all the imaginative freedoms literature has to offer, the anomaly is certainly the most radical tool that fiction can exploit. However, the anomaly has often been described as a voluntary or involuntary infraction of norms and rules, and this concept has been linked to the “abnormal”. For a long time, the terminological confusion that resulted has hindered a precise reflection on the intrinsic characteristics of the concept of anomaly. Which framework can be designed for these irregularities? How can one build a discourse that preserves the singularity of the “deviation” that the anomaly opposes to norms and normality, without confusing it with the “abnormal”? How does the anomaly violate social, psychological and/or artistic parameters and established frameworks? How does it challenge the reader’s traditional patterns of reception and which new fields does it open to them?

    The Schizoanalytic Clinic

    La deleuziana, a journal that desires

    The schizoanalysis created by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari is critical-clinical. It is critical as it conjugates various knowledge and practices by freeing against all reductionism the transversality of the flows that trace a problematic. Schizoanalysis has profoundly influenced the practice of some important reference points in the social psychology of Argentina and Uruguay, and later in Brazil. However, this stimulating and favourable reception of schizoanalysis in South America is quite exceptional. Not only do we find nowhere else analysts who claim to be schizoanalysts, but even today it is largely ignored in clinical circles. It is in this perspective that this call for papers wishes to engage a presentation of the different theoretical and practical developments of schizoanalysis that currently affect the exercise of psychotherapy, although in reality this aspect is constantly overwhelmed. The aim is to identify the clinical perspectives that have proliferated in the wake of schizoanalysis to map emerging clinical practices.

    Contemporary receptions of the work of Simone de Beauvoir - France, Italy and Spain (1968-2018)

    Lors de ce colloque consacré aux modalités de réception de l’œuvre de Simone de Beauvoir dans l’espace méditerranéen, nous souhaitons nous interroger sur l’actualité de ses travaux tant philosophiques que littéraires. Le Deuxième Sexe est un texte fondateur du féminisme, mais Mémoires d’une jeune fille rangée, La Force des choses ou La Force de l’âge ont eu un impact considérable sur les esprits, en France sans doute, mais aussi en Italie et en Espagne.

    Contra-bridges

    24th issue of “TRANS-”

    This issue of the journal TRANS- will be devoted not to the bridge, but to bridges, be they real or imaginary, painted, sculpted, filmed, recounted or deconstructed. This subject is not exclusive to any time period or genre. It does however require a comparative approach that can take the form of a comparison between different objects – bridges coming from geographies, histories, literatures, or technologies – and can be understood as a meeting point of several approaches, and as the excursion of a scientific perspective in a work of fiction, or an historical approach to a concept.

    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.
