    Resonance: The Creative Thrust of “Deep Zouk”

    Si le premier colloque international sur le Zouk, en 2019, a traité des trajectoires, des imaginaires et perspectives suivant le concept lacanien d’« hainamoration », ce deuxième colloque s’articule autour du concept chamoisélien de « résonance » pour tenter d'expliciter le processus de création de la musique zouk depuis ses fonts baptismaux. Qu'est-ce qui conditionne l’imaginaire créatif de nos démiurges du zouk et leur permet d’appréhender le monde ? Ce questionnement se justifie par le fait que beaucoup de musiciens et artistes-chanteurs-interprètes de nos régions, s’ils suivent des formations musicales conventionnelles, il n’en demeure pas moins que pour créer dans la Caraïbe, leurs lignes créatrices s'ancrent authentiquement dans le principe de la « résonance » (conte-danse-rythme), les sources vives des énergies cosmiques, de la vibration du tambour. Ce colloque permettra d’entrer dans les arcanes de la création, de pister et de suivre la trace de certains artistes rompus à l’exercice pour tenter de définir des traits définitoires de ce processus de création du « Deep zouk ».

    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.

    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.

    Missionary strategies and practices, slavery and forced labour (early 19th-mid 20th century)

    Another discussion on the institutional position of the churches in relation to slavery will be resolutely avoided. What will be analysed is the concrete confrontation —or cohabitation— with slavery. What did missionaries know about their slave environment? How did they learn about it? How did they take a stand? How did they act–or not? Same questions as far as indentured labour and the colonial forms of forced labour were concerned. Were there confrontations, mediations and misunderstandings?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
