    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.

    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.

    Tourism 3.0. Intangible cultural heritage at the heart of the tourist experience

    Intangible Cultural Heritage. New experiences, new horizons

    Intangible heritage is becoming increasingly important in the proposal of tourism. This has been accentuated because of the pandemic, as it has provoked a movement towards local cultures and proximity tourism. In this sense, it is necessary to consider issues such as tourism management, the use of new technologies and the perception of authenticity, among others, to ensure a sustainable future for tourist destinations.

    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.

    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....

    Migration Triage and Experiences of Blocking : Africa, America, Europe

    On a global scale, many migrant populations are stopped in their journey at international border or on the roads and places that are gradually built up as internal state borders. The political processes of contention are currently a common denominator of the production of blocked situations, as part of a transformation of the dynamics of control and surveillance. The « border effects » have in common that they confront migrants, like asylum seekers, with forms of blockage, lengthening waiting periods, producing new social dynamics, temporalities and spatiality where various actors intervene. The objective of the conference is to analyze the diversity of migratory situations produced by blockage at different levels according to their production context. The aim of the event is to participate in the construction of a comparative framework to address these situations by putting into perspective the construction of migration policies and their effects in Africa, Latin America and Europe.

    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.

    Adventure playgrounds of the past/for the future

    Current state of knowledge, issues and perspectives

    Adventure playgrounds are unique spaces of play. While the 1990s saw their disappearance in France, a recent resurgence has brought up questions around their legacy and theoretical basis as socio-pedagogical experiments. This symposium, organised by TAPLA (Terrains d’aventure du passé/pour l’avenir – Adventure playgrounds of the past/for the future) and supported by Labex: pasts in the present, is designed to investigate how adventure playgrounds raise questions around the place accorded to children in the city, and more specifically, children’s unmediated experience of socio-spacial learning systems. In addition, we aim to lay the groundwork for an international, interdisciplinary network, combining the human and social sciences with spacial design and urban planning, along with the fields of education and socio-cultural community work.

    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.

    A century of "Ethno-subjects"

    1921-2021 - From the Revue de Botanique Appliquée journal to the Revue d'Ethnoécologie journal

    Le 15 mai 1921, Auguste Chevalier lançait le premier numéro du premier volume de la Revue de botanique appliquée et d’agriculture coloniale. Roland Portères a repris sa publication en 1954 sous le nom de Journal d'agriculture tropicale et de botanique appliquée, qui paraît jusqu’en 2000. L'entreprise s'est poursuivie en 2012 par le lancement de l’actuelle Revue d’ethnoécologie, qui veut s'inscrire dans cette longue lignée scientifique replacée dans le mouvement international des sciences humaines. Plus que des choix éditoriaux, les modifications successives du titre reflètent le glissement des champs de recherche : botanique appliquée (dite Economic botany dans le monde anglophone), agronomie coloniale, agronomie tropicale, agriculture traditionnelle, ethnobotanique et ethnozoologie, ethnobiologie, ethnoécologie. Nous avons là un siècle d’une pensée singulière d’études renouvelées des relations au vivant qui, d’un point de vue éditorial, a su s’épanouir au Muséum national d’histoire naturelle.

    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.
