    Masked balls in Guyana and elsewhere - carnival identities and images at issue

    Images and identities in carnival

    Le bal paré-masqué, rencontre culturelle entre le bal travesti bourgeois et la danse traditionnelle populaire et endiablée, appelée le « kasé-kô », fusion de deux espaces festifs (salon de bal bourgeois et salle de bal populaire) a connu lui aussi quelques évolutions au fil des années. Il suscite un certain nombre d’interrogations : fondements historiques, description et rôle des acteurs qui s’y engagent, évolution et enjeux dans un contexte socio- économique, politique et culturel, spécifique. Ce colloque international pluridisciplinaire permettra de croiser les regards, d’interroger les imaginaires, les discours et représentations concernant les bals masqués de Guyane et d’ailleurs.

    Global Culture and Aesthetic Cosmopolitanism

    The “Global Culture and Aesthetic Cosmopolitanism” International Conference will discuss the meanings of cultural globalization, its mechanical and hybridizing effects, and its cosmopolitan consequences, from the perspective of global culture and its injunctions through various mediums and objects of cultural consumption (music, TV, books, video games, movies, series, newspapers, comics, blogs, social media, festivals, national heritage). In particular, the conference intends to explore and specify the aesthetic features and foundations of cosmopolitan and translocal cultures. How and under what conditions do the aesthetic conditions of production and reception matter for building cosmopolitan cultures?

    Criatividade e protagonismo indígenas

    O dossiê da próxima edição dos Cadernos de Arte e Antropologia tem como tema “Criatividade e Protagonismo Indígenas”, em distintos contextos etnográficos e sob diversas abordagens teóricas e metodológicas. Trata-se de um tema que tem adquirido crescente visibilidade e interesse como consequência, entre outros fatores, do seu potencial transformador no plano das relações sociais e políticas internas e externas às sociedades indígenas, podendo ser surpreendido, ademais, através de expressões individuais e coletivas e de recortes múltiplos (de gênero, geracional, e etc). O dossiê dará um foco especial às questões estéticas e artísticas, sempre que estas estejam relacionadas ao tema principal.

    Literature and politically correct

    Notions, pratiques & dérives

    La modernité littéraire a souvent fait de l’acte d’écriture un geste d’irrévérence sociale et politique, aussi bien par le style et l’usage particulier de la langue que par le traitement thématique, explicite ou implicite, de certains sujets tenus pour peu conformes aux conventions sociales. Or, la pensée contemporaine, fortement marquée par l’idée, voire l’idéologie du «politiquement correct», notion complexe et élastique qu’il s’agit de bien saisir, est venue interroger le rapport de l’écriture littéraire au discours social, conformiste ou discordant. Cette problématique se traduit de nos jours par le dégagement d’un débat suscité par des phénomènes, souvent médiatiques, axés sur ce qu’il convient ou ne convient pas socialement d’écrire, que cela touche à la sexualité, à certaines idéologies ou conceptions de la société.
