    Animal work

    “Laboreal” Journal, July 2022

    In numerous socio-professional activities (in agriculture, the police, the army, health, research, art, the environment, among others), humans and animals work together. In recent years, research in the human and social sciences has highlighted the specificities of cooperation between humans and animals, and has shown the existence of animal work, thus opening a new field of research. We now know that the rules of work are built intra- and inter-specific: between humans and between animals and humans. The aim of this issue is to discuss and analyze these activities, and the associated ethical and deontological issues. We seek to address the issue of human work with animals, as well as animal work itself. Therefore, this dossier seeks to discuss both the relationship between humans and animals and the engagement of animals in work.

    Black Lives Matter: a transnational movement

    Revue « Esclavages et post-esclavages / Slaveries and post-slaveries »

    The aim of this special number is therefore to bring together articles analysing the growth of Black Lives Matter (BLM) to a transnational movement. Contributions should show awareness of the concrete modes of circulation and appropriation, and to the repercussions of campaigns linked to BLM, but also of the historical and political ruptures and continuities implied and explained by them. Contributions bearing on the role of new information and communications technologies (NITC) and social networks, especially in the spreading of images (videos of police violence, artworks etc), and their role in the transnational development of the movement will be given close attention.

    Decolonial studies. From theory to practice

    Abya Yala, Caribbean, Africa, Europe, Asia

    The arrival and emergence of studies, research or reflections claiming to be “decolonial” in Europe or in formerly colonised societies (particularly in Africa) should not be reduced to another anachronistic or nativist intellectual mode seeking to simplify or replay colonial encounters as certain authors or journalists (especially in France) think. If these studies seem recent to the French-speaking reader, and more particularly to the French reader, it should be pointed out that they stem from a Latin-American intellectual critical tradition (dialoguing with several intellectual streams such as the theory of dependence, liberation theology, studies on the world-system) and that several publications by Latin-American or Latin-American researchers have been describing them for several decades.

    Dance: history and historiography

    This dossier is inserted in the field of dance, its history and historiographies – in the web of complexities of processes of centralizations and decentralizations, influences and consolidation, circulation, appropriations, migrations and transpositions of sources, uses and knowledge. It also addresses the challenges of the production of dance history, considering the dynamics of digital technologies for production of images and sounds, as well as inter and transdisciplinary relations that can support these reflections. This call invites authors to submit previously unpublished articles about procedures and research in dance, through approaches that, based on the polysemy of the word history, is inserted in the lines of education, creation, production and diffusion of the language of dance.

    Blackness and Racial Relations

    Revue « Horizontes Antropológicos »

    La revue internationale Horizontes Antropológicos lance un appel à contribution pour son dossier thématique « Négritude et relations raciales ». Le concept de race, même repensé scientifiquement et compris comme une construction sociale et politique, demeure un défi académique, compte tenu de la façon dont sont vécues les relations raciales et de pouvoir et la manière dont cette question est inscrite à l’ordre du jour de la lutte contre le racisme. Ce dossier vise à rassembler des travaux récents et critiques qui repositionnent les sciences sociales quant au concept de race et à l’étude des relations raciales. Les travaux s’inscriront dans les débats sur l’intersectionnalité de genre, de race, de génération, de classe, sur l’invisibilité des relations raciales dans le champ scientifique et les expériences de racialisation à l’échelle globale.

    What happened with the LGBTQI+ "rights revolution" in Latin America?

    Nr. 99 - Cahiers des Amériques latines
