    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.

    Transformer et s’approprier l’espace dans les empires ibériques du XVe au XVIIe siècle

    Du XVIe au XIXe siècles, de nombreux territoires à travers le globe sont transformés par l’impérialisme des couronnes espagnole et portugaise. L’appropriation et la transformation des territoires et des paysages jouent un rôle central dans les processus coloniaux des empires ibériques. En interrogeant la transformation et reconstruction spatiale à l’époque coloniale, cette journée d’étude doctorale entend questionner la spécificité des outils et pratiques mis en place dans les empires ibériques pour maîtriser l’espace et exploiter les ressources des différents territoires qui les composent entre le XVe et XVIIe siècle.

    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.

    Learning from territories / Teaching territories

    In German (lehren / lernen) as in Arabic (تعليم / تعلم), a single letter distinguishes the concept of teaching from the concept of learning. Whether defined as a theoretical object of scientific knowledge that can be taught or as a body of practices that can be passed on, there is no escaping the need to address the issue of the relationship between the apparent universality of the concept of territory, on the one hand, and the variety of uses to which the term is put and the range of practices associated with it, on the other. The sixth CIST conference will focus on two questions: how to teach about territories (academic knowledge, empirical methods, disciplinary approaches, etc.) and how to learn from territories (observing, exploring, describing, experiencing, etc.).

    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.

    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....

    The Ethics of Gold

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°249 (2022-2)

    This call for papers falls broadly within the scope of ongoing debates around the relationship between development paths and gold mining activities, and around the social and political reconfigurations caused by these extractive activities. It aims to grasp the heuristic significance of gold in order to examine the processes of change, structuring, and destructuring at work at different scales of the gold production network and supply chain. It particularly welcomes studies grounded in empirics to primarily address the following issues: responsibility, (possible) sustainability, legitimation, and social justice.

    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.

    The blue economy in the Caribbean: challenges and development

    The objective of this thematic issue is to provide an overview of the blue economy in the Caribbean. The concept of the blue economy, relating to the use and conservation of aquatic resources and ecosystems, is increasingly being put forward to promote sustainable development of the islands (Failler and Phang). While traditional sectors, such as beach tourism, commercial and recreational fishing, and maritime transport occupy the forefront of the economic scene, several emerging sectors such as biotechnology, marine renewable energy, and deep mining are emerging (Patil et al., 2016). As can the protection of the coastline and the improvement of its resilience capacities to cope with the effects of climate change (Failler, 2020). The development of nature-based solutions in recent years on cyclone-prone islands is an example of this.

    Local production and appropriations of globalised urban planning

    The acceleration of globalisation and the massive urbanisation of the planet over the past forty years have played a powerful role in the transformation of cities. These worldwide dynamics are often presented as sources of a homogenisation of the cities’ organisational principles and the policies guiding their development, as well as urban forms and architectural styles. The result would thus be a ‘globalised urban planning’, in the sense of a uniform vision of the ways of creating the city promoted by the intensified circulation of ideas and models, the mobility of urban planning actors and the concentration of capital on a global scale. ‘Globalised fragments’ (Verdeil, 2006, p. 160) would be the symbol of this process, characterised by an influx of private stakeholders and specific planning schemes where the production of urban images play a key role.

    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.
