    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.

    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.

    Gender, Feminist and Women’s Studies

    Knowledge, Public Policies and Social Justice

    Gender, feminist and women’s studies are currently faced with new challenges and the deepening of old obstacles that compromise their future or may even block it in some countries. 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).

    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.

    A Time after a Setback: Persistent Reverberations of the Carnation Revolution

    Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal Nº 21

    At a time when there will be multiple proposals for perspectives on the fiftieth anniversary of April 25, 1974, a revolution marked by a euphoria that surpassed the day before and that surprised the day after, in an unlocking of the future, we suggest a look at the threshold of several disciplines in this cross-sectional issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal, between the social and human sciences, the arts, literature and other forms of intervention in reality, through four areas.

    Crises in the Americas

    Revue « RITA » N°16

    Crises are generally understood as undesirable, unexpected and contingent situations. In this issue of RITA, we wish to question the production of these phenomena that are calledcrises, from “laissez-faire” to “negligence”; from the banalization of the crisis in media oracademic discourse to the enunciation processes of public authorities. In “times of crises”, theywill justify more directly the imposition of social, economic or even military measures.

    The world of sports in the Americas and their political, cultural and social representations

    Amerika Journal n°25

    Sporting events mark the center of interest in the social life for many countries in the world. However, if we focus on the Americas, this importance is even more obvious. Sport becomes a reason for encounter, community, and connection. It brings out levels of interest and reinforces local, regional or beyond that, the game that is often unparalleled. Few people escape the passion that surrounds a country in the face of success in global competitions. This phenomenon, based on collective pride, pushes boundaries and includes even the most critical viewers. Can we consider this contradiction one of the keys to success?

    Les enjeux environnementaux à l’aube de la nouvelle élection présidentielle au Brésil : bilan et perspectives

    L’élection de Jair Bolsonaro, en 2018, a suscité des craintes sur les possibles impacts négatifs de son mandat sur l’environnement. En pleine campagne, il avait notamment assuré que plus « un centimètre carré de terre ne serait octroyé aux indigènes », et qu’il pourrait mettre fin au ministère de l’Environnement. Plus de trois ans après le début de son mandat, peu de voix s’élèvent pour défendre son bilan environnemental, très largement critiqué au Brésil comme à l’international. Alors qu’une nouvelle campagne se prépare pour les élections prévues en octobre 2022, nous proposons de donner la parole à des chercheurs et chercheuses issu·e·s de plusieurs champs disciplinaires, afin de revenir sur l’ensemble du mandat de l’actuel président et de décrypter les changements intervenus sur la période et leurs effets.

    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.).
