    Physical and sports activities and populism

    Interactions between two contemporary social phenomena

    L’objet de cette journée d’étude est de dresser un premier état des lieux entre activités physiques (sports, éducation physique, etc.) et populisme, à travers des exemples particulièrement significatifs (Jeux olympiques, sport de compétition, formation, etc.), de la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle jusqu’à aujourd’hui, à travers différents pays et, en particulier, l’Amérique du sud, berceau de cette « idéologie » avec la Russie. Le sport sous toutes ses formes d’expression (Jeux olympiques, sport « bourgeois », sport ouvrier, etc.) sera envisagé ainsi que certaines figures révélatrices de cette orientation (Mussolini, Poutine, Orban, etc.).

    What Latin America says to Europe: circulations, imaginaries, viewpoints (and fantasies)

    We often tend to think of Latin America as a periphery of the global space. The very idea of globalization is frequently equated with that of cultural “Americanization”. Understood as a “United States of America-nization”, it is generally considered only as a circulation of ideas, models, knowledge, techniques or cultural objects from the North or the West to the South. However, working on Latin America frequently leads us to encounter traces of it or to identify its influence in Europe. Politics, culture or knowledge: the objective of this conference is to study some of the diverse forms of Latin American presence in Europe and/or in the European gaze. The works discussed here will take these circulations as an object, analyzing their processes, forms and impact. But they can also take a more reflexive form, by questioning the status of European-based researchers interested in Latin America.

    Caring for Urban Nature

    Revue « Espaces et Sociétés »

    This issue of the journal Espaces et Sociétés is focued on the contributions of city-dwellers to the care of greenery in the city, with particular emphasis on two key perspectives. In the first, we look solely at practices that emerge in the public space, whether spontaneous and developed outside organised structures, or encouraged by institutional entities established by the public authorities. In the second perspective, the aim is to look critically at the urban nature activities undertaken by individuals, i.e. outside the collective practices traditionally pursued in shared gardens or big urban projects by public authorities, cooperatives or civil society organisations. International comparisons or case studies from outside France are welcome.

    Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries

    As part of its research programme “Networks and sociability at the court of France, 17th-18th centuries” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The court was a microcosm of society under the Ancien Régime. The royal family and the great noblemen were not only in each other’s company, but they also rubbed shoulders with a whole crowd of office-holders of greater or lesser importance, who ensured the smooth running of this mechanism.

    Féminisme(s) en mouvement dans l’aire artistique hispanophone (des années 2010 à nos jours)

    Lors de cette journée d’étude, nous nous proposons d’explorer la polysémie du vocable « mouvement » qui ouvre, à notre sens, un large éventail épistémologique et disciplinaire lié aux féminisme(s) dans l’aire hispanophone (Amérique latine, Espagne et Guinée Équatoriale). Nous recueillerons donc des propositions de communication qui se centreront sur les productions artistiques « en mouvement ». Nous faisons ainsi appel aux chercheur·es spécialisé·es dans les études de genre, les études culturelles, les études hispaniques et hispano-américaines, l’histoire de l’art, les arts plastiques, les sciences politiques, la sociologie ou encore l’anthropologie.

    Decentering the analysis of Africa-China relations

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°251 (2023-1)

    The question put forward by the vast majority of works studying the relations between Africa and China is “What is China doing in Africa? What are the Chinese doing in Africa?”, thus often overlooking the anthropological dimension of social, economic, and political change in which African actors can reclaim their place, in other words an approach that would decenter China and the Chinese in order to shed light on the microfoundations of the macroprocesses of development by examining Africa and Africans. Agency – or agentivité as it is now commonly called in French – is defined here as the ability to effect or introduce socio-economic and political changes in the arena in which the actors are involved. By addressing the question of African agentive practices and norms in Afro-Chinese relations, this call for papers therefore leads to decentering China to focus on Africa.

    AntiAtlas of Epistemicide

    AntiAtlas of Epistemicide is a collaborative artistic and scientific project that brings together notices and synthetic articles on epistemicides, past or present, anywhere on the planet. The articles collected in this book will be accompanied by a map designed specifically for each example of an epistemicide. The question being as singular as it is unfathomable, this project does not have an encyclopedic aim, but to the contrary, to establish a non-exhaustive and subjective atlas, assumed to be both a scientific work and an artistic catalogue. As all disciplinary fields are concerned by this question, antiAtlas of Epistemicide is opening its call for contributions to a authors of all disciplinary affiliations.

    Learning from territories / Teaching territories

    In German (lehren / lernen) as in Arabic (تعليم / تعلم), a single letter distinguishes the concept of teaching from the concept of learning. Whether defined as a theoretical object of scientific knowledge that can be taught or as a body of practices that can be passed on, there is no escaping the need to address the issue of the relationship between the apparent universality of the concept of territory, on the one hand, and the variety of uses to which the term is put and the range of practices associated with it, on the other. The sixth CIST conference will focus on two questions: how to teach about territories (academic knowledge, empirical methods, disciplinary approaches, etc.) and how to learn from territories (observing, exploring, describing, experiencing, etc.).

    Inégalités socio-spatiales sur le terrain

    Rapports sociaux de domination au prisme de l’engagement pédagogique et de l'interdisciplinarité (France-Argentine)

    La démarche réflexive et critique consiste à prendre acte du fait que l’ethnographie est d’emblée publique, ce qui nécessite de considérer ses enjeux, même dans la relation pédagogique et dans l’ouverture interdisciplinaire qui s’ouvre dans le traitement des inégalités socio-spatiales. Cette journée d’étude explore ces questions à partir de terrains interdisciplinaires menées dans des contextes défavorisés par des acteurs pluriels, y compris des étudiant·es : quelles sont les complémentarités et les incompréhensions ? Ces dernières ne concernent pas seulement la rencontre avec les sujets de l’enquête, mais également, et peut-être d’abord, la négociation de l’enquête lorsqu’elle est portée par des disciplines, des cultures, des collectifs, des âges, des genres et des approches qu’on se doit d’analyser de manière complexe.

    Petropolitics in the Countries of the South

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°250 (2022-3)

    For this special issue, we consider a broad approach to the world of hydrocarbons, ranging from economics to cultural issues, and including history, politics, demography, sociology, and anthropology. Our aim is to go beyond a conception that reduces oil-producing countries to black boxes with outgoing flows of oil and gas and incoming financial flows, thus boiling everything down to this single (economic, political, and geopolitical) issue. Before causing global warming, oil had an in situ impact on territories, human communities, and ecosystems. This approach calls for a critical rereading of the abundant literature on the oil-producing countries of the South, in order to tackle oil-related phenomena differently, to identify new connections between them, and to examine those which are only little or not studied.

    Festivals and trans (national) cinematographic dynamics : forms of production, circulation and representation

    This international conference will take place at the University of Toulouse 2, simultaneously to the international film festival Cinelatino - Rencontres de Toulouse in March 2022. The objective is to go beyond a binary national / transnational approach to cinema in order to understand the articulation between practices, mediations, rhetorics and representations that form this contemporary cinematographic spatiality. It aims at promoting a collective and internationally open dialogue around the strong relations between festivals, production support systems, residencies and the circulation of professionals. If the starting point was the cinemas of Latin America, it is now our intention to develop a more comparative approach with other regions of the world which also participate in these international dynamics - such as Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Near and Middle East....

    The Ethics of Gold

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°249 (2022-2)

    This call for papers falls broadly within the scope of ongoing debates around the relationship between development paths and gold mining activities, and around the social and political reconfigurations caused by these extractive activities. It aims to grasp the heuristic significance of gold in order to examine the processes of change, structuring, and destructuring at work at different scales of the gold production network and supply chain. It particularly welcomes studies grounded in empirics to primarily address the following issues: responsibility, (possible) sustainability, legitimation, and social justice.
