    1956-1958: A revolutionary period that changed Africa (and the world)

    The objective of this panel is to compare the various social mobilizations that took place in Africa during the years 1956-1958 and which arguably constitute a historical watershed. The main aim of the panel is not the making of an abstract comparative analysis, but the analysis, based on the testimonial material collected, of how the memory of these events has been structured over time. Moreover, we are interested in understanding what the impacts of these social movements were on the structuring of states and what continuities can be found between the mobilizations of that period and the ary social mobilizations that have shaken the continent in the last ten years, from the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011 onwards.

    Women, Amerindian women and leaders on the political stage. Careers, practices and roles in Latin America

    American Studies international congress (CIA 2021)

    À l’occasion du LVIIe congrés internacional des américanistes qui se déroulera du 19 au 23 juillet 2021 à Foz do Iguaçu au Brésil, nous vous invitons à participer à notre groupe de travail :  Femmes, amérindiennes et leaders sur la scène politique. Parcours, pratiques et rôles en Amérique latine. Dans ce groupe de travail, nous nous intéresserons aux femmes politiques amérindiennes, à leurs parcours, à leurs positions, à leurs discours et à leurs pratiques. Plus particulièrement, nous nous interrogerons sur la place et le rôle des femmes amérindiennes dans la scène politique actuelle. Existe-t-il une politique au féminin ? Que font-elles différemment ? Pourquoi ont-elles pris le devant de la scène ? Quel rapport au mouvement amérindien encore très masculin est-ce que cela montre ? Pourquoi les femmes leaders seraient-elles moins connues dans l’histoire ?

    #MariellePresente - Transnational Resistances

    The Gender and Diversity Journal, a feminist and queer review from the northeastern region of Brazil, invites everyone to submit articles, essays, interviews, field journals, reports and other texts for the special issue entitled "#MariellePresente: Transnational Resistances". The texts must describe and analyze the transnational responses following the assassination of the Brazilian Marielle Franco. She was a black woman from the favela, political activist, feminist and lesbian. She was murdered at the corner of a street in Rio de Janeiro in March 2018. Given the political nature of her assassination, many actions denouncing the crime were organized around the world.

    The gender of professions

    Clomparative perspectives in the sociology of professional groups, the sociology of gender and the the sociology of migrations

    The object of this session is the sociological theorization of the relation between gender and profession. Today, the question is less the exclusion of women from work defined as professional, considering their feinization, than their routine inclusion in ill-defined support roles. The presentations could cross several approaches (of sociology of professional groups, gender, migrations, intersectionality...) to deal with issues like :inequalities in women's access to certain professions, male resistance to women's carrers, delegation of "dirty work", the specific and cultural construction of a masculinist vision of profession work, how professions professes gender, the effects of liberalisation of professions (in many sectors like Health, Culture or Law) on their feminization...

    Social movements in overseas departments since the beginning of the 21st century

    Presages of a new era for overseas departments

    Ce colloque vise à faire le point sur les mobilisations sociales qui touchent depuis le début du XXIe siècle les entités ultramarines régies par l'article 73 de la Constitution. En effet, les territoires qui ont connu le processus de la départementalisation (Guyane, Guadeloupe, Martinique, La Réunion, Mayotte) connaissent depuis près d’une décennie des mouvements de contestation d’une ampleur inédite qui paralysent leur vie économique et sociale pendant plusieurs semaines voire plusieurs mois. Les revendications évoquées lors de ces mobilisations (vie chère, inégalités, insécurité, immigration,...) ont mis en évidence l’existence d’un profond malaise vis-à-vis de la situation économique et sociale de ces territoires en dépit de la constante amélioration de leurs principaux indicateurs économiques et sociodémographiques au cours de ces dernières décennies. L’objectif de ce colloque, conçu dans une double perspective, interdisciplinaire et comparatiste, est de faire le bilan de ces mobilisations et de penser ce qu’elles révèlent de l’état du modèle départemental aujourd’hui.

    Estudos feministas e de gênero em jornalismo: história, metodologia e epistemologia

    Revista Âncora - Revista Latino-americana de Jornalismo (UFPB)

    A Revista Âncora - Revista Latino-americana de Jornalismo - lança seu novo dossiê temático que tem como título «Estudos feministas e de gênero em jornalismo: história, metodologia e epistemologia». A trajetória da relação ambígua e potente entre o feminismo e a academia é longa. Dos chamados estudos de mulheres, até a década de 1970, ao campo dos estudos de gêneros, que se intensificaram a partir da década de 1980, a atuação de feministas dentro das universidades provocou tensionamentos em alicerces importantes do que tradicionalmente se entendia por conhecimento válido, assim como o perfil e atributos esperados para caracterizar o então sujeito produtor do saber científico.

    Issues of interculturality and pluriethnicity in Guyana

    Practices of care relations in question

    La dimension multiethnique et multiculturelle de la Guyane est un trait constitutif de ce territoire français d’Amérique du sud. En conséquence, des disparités et des hiérarchisations sociales et culturelles sont à l’œuvre et impactent les conditions de vie de la population (Piantoni, 2008). Le professionnel intervenant dans le champ de la protection de l’enfance sera ainsi, à son insu, amené à jauger la question de la bientraitance à l’aune de ses propres outils internes, c’est-à-dire au regard de sa propre expérience d’enfant ayant grandi dans une culture donnée. Comment ces professionnels s’y prennent-ils face à cette altérité culturelle révélant leur propre « sentiment d’être différent » ? Quelle conscience en ont-ils ? Comment cette différence impacte-t-elle leurs pratiques ? Quels retours d’expériences peut-on recueillir dans ces champs de pratiques ?

    Afro-decolonial perspectives - practical and theoretical issues

    Representations of Africans and Afro-descendants in school manuals

    Ce colloque-atelier est le fruit des résultats d'un précédent colloque qui a eu lieu à Saint-Louis à l'université Gaston Berger au Sénégal. Son objectif ne sera pas la création de manuels scolaires au format papier mais la création d’une plateforme digitale où les membres du réseau pourront mettre en ligne des supports de tous types (textes, photos, vidéos, audio, peintures, etc.) en rapport avec les cultures africaines et afro-diasporiques. Ainsi, chaque enseignant, animateur culturel, artiste, éducateur aura accès aux sources primaires partout dans le monde. Cependant, cette initiative n’empêche pas à postériori la création de livres au format papier. C’est pourquoi l’optique de cette rencontre sera beaucoup plus ciblée sur les pratiques pédagogiques et didactiques.
