    Religion and gender in Latin America

    Theoretical and methodological perspectives for research

    This dossier invites researchers to submit papers discussing the theoretical and methodological challenges and limits facing new research questions in order to address the interfaces between religion and gender in Latin American countries in light of changes in the social and religious field in recent decades. We welcome works produced from different areas of knowledge in the social and human sciences, as well as areas and studies at the intersection of these issues. We set out to encourage reflection on the ethical challenges faced by researchers regarding the new theoretical and methodological models used in our region and beyond.

    Thinking commemorations like ritualised practical spaces

    At the crossroads of history and anthropology

    C’est à partir des pratiques commémoratives et des luttes politiques et sociales auxquelles elles sont associées que nous aimerions repenser les temps et les espaces des colonialités contemporaines. En nous interrogeant, sur les modalités pratiques d’exposition et de ritualisation des mémoires politiques en proie à des hégémonies qui leur sont exogènes. De nombreux événements historiques survenus dans le monde, par exemple au Chiapas au Mexique, ou bien au Brésil, ici et là en Afrique par exemple en Algérie, pays qui a présenté des commémorations politiques par la négative, ou bien encore en Europe (Irlande du Nord, Portugal, Catalogne) tout comme la récente contestation sociale et politique en France, fournissent de nombreux arguments pour penser dans ce sens. L’objectif de ce colloque sera de décrire et de comprendre les modalités de fonctionnement de certaines pratiques mémorielles contre-hégémoniques, dans leurs diversités, et l’institution des traditions qui en découlent.

    Purity and Impurity

    Hamsa. Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies, nº 2

    “Purity” and “Impurity” establish themselves as structural categories in both Islam and Judaism, embracing dimensions as diverse as the body, food, clothing and even space itself. The 2nd issue of the journal Hamsa will be devoted to this wide-ranging theme, seeking to obtain diachronic historical perspectives. To this effect, we aim to promote the analysis of interfaith relationships, in those instances where purity and impurity are projected in contacts with the Other. Those dimensions concern not only the minorities, but also affect Christianitas itself, through interiorization of these concepts and their application to minority communities (as is the case, for example, with limpeza de sangue - “cleanliness of blood”).

    The problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology

    Antropológicas Journal

    The journal Antropológicas is accepting proposals for publication in its next issue that will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology. Manuscripts should be submitted to the page http://revistas.rcaap.pt/antropologicas/login by the 28th of February of 2013. Antropológicas’ number 13th will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology, because since the academic statement of its field of knowledge, ethnographic practice and anthropological writing had many debates, both for the originality of the methodology and the scientific accuracy required by their professionals. Among social sciences, anthropology was the one where theoretical discussion about its rationale demanded a greater critical capacity, by placing into question its methodological grounds.
