    Resonance: The Creative Thrust of “Deep Zouk”

    Si le premier colloque international sur le Zouk, en 2019, a traité des trajectoires, des imaginaires et perspectives suivant le concept lacanien d’« hainamoration », ce deuxième colloque s’articule autour du concept chamoisélien de « résonance » pour tenter d'expliciter le processus de création de la musique zouk depuis ses fonts baptismaux. Qu'est-ce qui conditionne l’imaginaire créatif de nos démiurges du zouk et leur permet d’appréhender le monde ? Ce questionnement se justifie par le fait que beaucoup de musiciens et artistes-chanteurs-interprètes de nos régions, s’ils suivent des formations musicales conventionnelles, il n’en demeure pas moins que pour créer dans la Caraïbe, leurs lignes créatrices s'ancrent authentiquement dans le principe de la « résonance » (conte-danse-rythme), les sources vives des énergies cosmiques, de la vibration du tambour. Ce colloque permettra d’entrer dans les arcanes de la création, de pister et de suivre la trace de certains artistes rompus à l’exercice pour tenter de définir des traits définitoires de ce processus de création du « Deep zouk ».

    Réseaux de correspondances dans les mondes ibériques et ibéro-américains (XVIII-XIX-XXe siècles)

    Si l’écriture épistolaire n’est pas une invention du XVIIIe siècle, ce procédé de communication interpersonnelle et intellectuelle, utilisé aussi bien dans la vie réelle que dans la fiction, connaît un nouvel essor au siècle des Lumières. L’étude des correspondances suppose par ailleurs que l’on s’intéresse à la notion de réseaux, car l’échange et la circulation des lettres induit des dynamiques de constitution de réseaux interpersonnels (épistolaires au premier chef, mais qui sont aussi des réseaux familiaux, commerciaux, politiques, diplomatiques, etc). De plus, avec le développement des humanités numériques, on assiste à un renouvellement des méthodes d’analyse qui apportent une dimension novatrice à l’étude de corpus de correspondances. Il s’agira donc, lors de ce congrès, d’aborder la question des réseaux de correspondances dans une perspective élargie, en étendant l’étude aux espaces ibériques et ibéro-américains, et dans une chronologie allant du XVIIIe au XXe siècles.

    History and Memory: Epistemological Reinterpretation of Africa's Past in a Post-Colonial Context

    “Práticas da História” journal

    This special issue of Práticas da História is interested in receiving contributions, referring to colonial and post-colonial African contexts. It is important to better understand what is happening in different African countries, at the level of the Academy but also in other spaces where social memory and history confront each other, and how political, ideological, economic and linguistic factors interfere in those situations. In the case of the former Portuguese colonies, which will soon celebrate 50 years of independence, there are additional factors, such as the later end of colonial rule and the delay in historiography about Africa that occurred until recent decades, both in Portugal and in Brazil.

    The Press of Exile(s)

    Centré sur la question coloniale dans la presse d’exil, le congrès vise à discuter la liminalité des expériences d’occupation, de dissidence, de clandestinité et de bannissement dans leur rapport à l’expatriation politique, tant en raison des similitudes de leur impact psychologique que des circulations qu'elles tendent à favoriser. L’objectif est d’encourager les études qui explorent les idées, les images et les débats autour du colonialisme et des réalités coloniales mobilisées par les périodiques d’exil, tant dans leur diversité que mettant en exergue les convergences et les divergences.

    Pan-Africanisms, (Post-)Slavery and Race

    « Esclavages et Post-Esclavages / Slaveries and Post-Slaveries » Journal

    This issue of Slaveries & Post-Slaveries examines the repercussions of the transatlantic matrix of race on post-slavery societies. Particular attention will be paid to societies on the African continent, as the racial logics operating within them have rarely been studied. We understand racial logics as the assumption that supposed physical and cultural differences between groups are “inherited” from one generation to the next.

    From limits to margins. Periphery(s) in stories and imaginarie Latin American contemporaries

    « Amerika », numéro 28

    This number attempts to define what the margins and peripheries are today in the imaginaries, stories, human sciences and cultural fields of the Americas. If the twentieth century saw, in most countries of Latin America, as it was about defining a cultural norm (which or not took over from the colonial period, whether or not integrating elements of pre-Hispanic history), also appeared increasingly affirmed countercultures and peripheral cultures. With digitalization, which occurred at the beginning of our century, a strong acceleration of the movement was noted. It is then worth asking what a peripheral/marginal culture may be, as well as looking for a way to define it. Another primary issue is knowing how (and by whom) these currents can be represented. In a somewhat binary conception of social, geographic and creative space, one would obviously have to oppose the notions of normativity and centrality to the margins.

    Crime and Society: historical dynamics in contemporary times

    Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal, issue 22

    Crime, its practice and its repression arouse great attention and curiosity in our days. Reported and investigated by the media, literature or cinema, among others, crime is currently a constant presence in our daily life. In the field of History, particularly in Social History, crime has established itself as a relevant topic of study, especially since the second half of the 20th century and, since then, several lines of research have been pursued and explored. This issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal is looking for contributions that reflect on Crime and Society in the 19th and 20th centuries.

    Sport in the Americas

    “The body of an athlete and the soul of a sage - these are what we require to be happy”, wrote Voltaire to Helvetius. At RITA, although we don’t claim to have athletic bodies, we humbly hope that our journal does lead to the path of wisdom. As Paris will host the Olympic Games in 2024, we thought it relevant to invite researchers to show wisdom and gain some critical distance to question the role and function of sports in the Americas, from North to South.

    Interdisciplinary Franco-Latin-American perspectives on challenges related to the environment

    Since the 1970s, environmental issues have continued to grow. Indeed, we have moved from a localized perception of environmental damage to a global understanding of the risks associated with climate change and their impacts on socio-ecosystems. In order to better respond to the challenges and stakes of the environmental crisis that is impacting us, it seems appropriate to share and make known the experiences and theories developed from different continents, cultures and geographies in order to enrich our object of study. In this regard, this Congress, which will be held from October 23 to 27, 2023 in Costa Rica, proposes to offer perspectives on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies on environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity, resilience, global health, payments for environmental services, etc.

Debate and controversy in the public sphere have grown increasingly polarised, often evolving into open conflict and intense antagonism. The Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies invites researchers from national and international institutions to contribute to enhancing knowledge on gender equality issues in different countries, but also on current challenges and future prospects for gender, feminist and women’s studies. the Congress will take place from January 31st to February 2nd 2024 , in Lisbon, at the Institute for Social and Political Sciences (ISCSP-ULisboa).

    La forêt dans les mondes ibériques et ibéro-américains

    La Société française des hispanistes et ibéro-américanistes célèbrera son XLI congrès du 5 au 8 juin 2024 à l’université de Limoges. Il aura pour thématique « la forêt dans les mondes ibériques et ibéro-américains ». S’adressant prioritairement aux spécialistes de l’aire ibérique et ibéro-américaine, ce congrès se veut pourtant aussi résolument ouvert à d’autres approches autour de la thématique. Ainsi, si les études littéraires et artistiques, linguistiques et historiennes semblent s’imposer, les approches sociologiques, géographiques, anthropologiques, philosophiques seront également les bienvenues dès lors qu’elles portent sur le thème et l’aire culturelle ibérique et ibéro-américaine.

    Women on stage: From the backstage to the to limelight

    Women in theatre until the 19th century

    Since its origin, the History of Theatre has been built by male names. However, it is unthinkable that women have not also had an important role in this construction. Besides existing as characters, their contributions as performers, playwrights, composers, entrepreneurs, patrons, scenographers or costume designers, among a broad range of other functions, were fundamental to the development of the theatrical practice. This conference aims to recover the place of women in theatre since its origin until the 19th century, covering a wide variety of topics, which have women at their centre, either as the focus of a show or as marginal, as star or tertiary figure, as part of the audience or as producer of the cultural object. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive and transdisciplinary debate in order to rediscover the place of women in theatre in a global and historical approach.

    La « Révolution des Œillets », révolution portugaise et mondiale

    Dossier spécial de la revue Lusotopie sur le Cinquantenaire du 25 avril 1974

    Le 24 avril 1974 au soir, les désormais célèbres « capitaines d’avril » commencèrent leur coup d’État au nom d’un programme simple, celui des « trois D » : décoloniser, démocratiser, développer. Il s’agissait surtout de mettre fin à près de quatorze ans de guerre coloniale, une guerre qui ne pouvait pas être gagnée militairement, qui isolait le Portugal sur la scène internationale, brûlait près la moitié du budget de l’État et poussait la jeunesse à prendre le chemin de l’exil pour éviter de partir au combat. Cinquante ans après le 25 avril 1974, Lusotopie publie un dossier spécial pour étudier les aspects de cette révolution qui pourraient avoir été sous-étudiés.

    Mapping the Other

    In Western space, mapping the Other is not a prescriptive notion to assign ossified identities. Rather, it is about questioning the link between these intersectional identities of otherness and the specificities of the various Western spaces. In other words, it invites a reconsideration of how the Others autonomously define themselves in the dominant and marginal spaces of the “normative order” of hegemonic societies, and how they integrate them to make them theirs—therefore challenging the systems of oppression implemented.

    Afro Literature Conference

    Cuando decidimos abordar el estudio de la “literatura africana”, nos enfrentamos a una serie de problemas, en tanto campo complejo de tensiones, de núcleos constitutivos, de perspectivas, inherentes a toda etiqueta formada por la palabra literatura y un gentilicio. Una dificultad no menor la encontramos en los planes de estudios de las carreras de Letras en Argentina cuyo “patrón cognitivo” (Quijano 2017) aún persiste dentro de los rasgos de un patrón de poder fundado en la colonialidad: el centro no ha sido del todo desplazado, para decirlo con wa Thiong’o (2014).  El eurocentrismo académico en nuestro país perdura en el escaso interés que el pensamiento africano y afrodiaspórico ocupa en las carreras de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales, con destacadas excepciones siempre individuales o colectivas pero rara vez institucionale.
