    L’animation en mouvement : loisirs sportifs et corporels dans l'animation sociale et socioculturelle

    40e colloque international de l’ISIAT

    Ce colloque a pour vocation de réfléchir sur les actions de « l’animation par le mouvement », les lieux et espaces où elles s’organisent et les modalités d’hybridation des champs professionnels reliés aux loisirs sportifs et corporels ainsi qu’à l’animation sociale et socioculturelle. On entend ainsi « l’animation en mouvement » dans une double acception : par ses actions et par sa professionnalisation vis-à-vis d’autres secteurs professionnels.

    From limits to margins. Periphery(s) in stories and imaginarie Latin American contemporaries

    « Amerika », numéro 28

    This number attempts to define what the margins and peripheries are today in the imaginaries, stories, human sciences and cultural fields of the Americas. If the twentieth century saw, in most countries of Latin America, as it was about defining a cultural norm (which or not took over from the colonial period, whether or not integrating elements of pre-Hispanic history), also appeared increasingly affirmed countercultures and peripheral cultures. With digitalization, which occurred at the beginning of our century, a strong acceleration of the movement was noted. It is then worth asking what a peripheral/marginal culture may be, as well as looking for a way to define it. Another primary issue is knowing how (and by whom) these currents can be represented. In a somewhat binary conception of social, geographic and creative space, one would obviously have to oppose the notions of normativity and centrality to the margins.

    Ce colloque international invite à aborder, à travers le prisme de l'étude des sociétés inclusives et des nouvelles citoyennetés, considérées comme un défi pour de nombreux acteurs politiques et penseurs, les enjeux des multiculturalismes ou post-multiculturalismes et des diversités en Amérique latine et dans les Caraïbes. Il s'agira d'évaluer les éventuelles spécificités de ces notions dans le contexte latino-américain ainsi que leur impact dans le contexte continental et global, à partir d'une grande variété d'objets d'étude, qu'ils soient historiques, sociaux, politiques, artistiques ou culturels.

    Agriculture, food and crises: challenges, strategies and innovations

    Revue « Études caribéennes »

    The populations of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), much more than those of other continental countries, are facing crises of different natures which threaten their ability to meet their basic food needs much more than other continental countries. In the intention to resolve these problems, several national and international actors have tried to combine their efforts in order to intervene, through different programs and projects, aimed at acting on the food and agricultural systems. These actions, as desirable as they may be, are not without undesirable costs for the environment. Some of these costs are detrimental to the sustainability of these systems. Thus, scientific and even philosophical reflections are necessary to address these questions.

    Chili 50 ans, 1973-2023. Des changements ?

    Ce colloque international se place dans le contexte des 50 ans du coup d’État chilien, mais il ne portera pas directement sur celui-ci, ni sur ses causes ni sur ses conséquences directes. Notre but est d’envisager l’évolution du pays sur la moyenne durée. Quels changements durant le demi-siècle écoulé ? Mais aussi, quels sont les héritages et les continuités ? Dans cette perspective, il sera question de conflictualité sociale, de luttes pour les droits des femmes et des minorités, de vulnérabilités et d’enjeux mémoriels. Ces phénomènes seront également interrogés à partir de la littérature, du cinéma et du théâtre. Dans quelle mesure ces diverses approches sont pertinentes et enrichissantes pour comprendre les évolutions complexes du Chili depuis 50 ans ?

    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.

    Neoliberalization of education and the making of territories

    The theme of this issue pursues questions that the journal Espaces et Sociétés has previously raised about the relationship between educational and territorial dynamics. Its originality will therefore consist in documenting the way in which neoliberal dynamics, which run through the education sector from primary to higher education, are contributing to the creation of contemporary spaces, both in peripheral areas and in central urban ones – as well as in spaces created specifically for education, such as campuses or emerging educational hubs, for example in Asia and the Middle East. It will also look at how educational models are internationalized and circulate in this process, between primary, secondary and higher education, between public and private, between North and South, without presupposing that this circulation is unidirectional.

    At the heart of the transnational allophone press

    Production, financing, distribution, circulation and reception (XIX°-XX° centuries)

    Long ignored by specialists, the foreign-language press exists in most countries at the margins of the global media system. In some countries, especially in those that attract large flows of immigrants, exiles and expatriates, these periodicals are numerous and of a great variety. For the 10th Transfopress Encounter, we invite papers on the organization and functioning of the allophone press, its funding, its distribution, circulation and reception by its readres.

    Peasantries and Violent Conflicts

    In this call for papers, we wish to address the relationship between the peasantry and conflicts with all the necessary analytical finesse and empiricism, by exploring the plurality of repertoires and modes of action to identify the contextual markers of the trajectories of violent crises involving the peasantry to varying degrees and in various forms. What we mean by violent conflict is any form of confrontation mobilizing a diversified arsenal, with a destructive effect on the agricultural, economic, and social systems in place, and with at times the aim of reconfiguring them to the advantage of certain actors. Such conflicts may be internal to certain peasantries, or may occur at their contact when they are exploited by external actors. Others may take shape and develop outside the rural world before reaching it. These violent conflicts are often found at the crossroads of a range of factors and processes: power dynamics linked to land access, the crystallization of identity and ethno-community differences, and governance problems.

    Mapping the Other

    In Western space, mapping the Other is not a prescriptive notion to assign ossified identities. Rather, it is about questioning the link between these intersectional identities of otherness and the specificities of the various Western spaces. In other words, it invites a reconsideration of how the Others autonomously define themselves in the dominant and marginal spaces of the “normative order” of hegemonic societies, and how they integrate them to make them theirs—therefore challenging the systems of oppression implemented.

    Financing agricultural and food transformations. Practices, mechanisms, collective action, and public policies

    « Revue internationale des études du développement » n°254

    This issue is a continuation of the series of thematic issues that the Revue Tiers Monde, now the Revue internationale des études du développement has regularly published for 25 years on the subject of financial inclusion (no. 145, 1996; no. 172, 2002; no. 197, 2009; no. 225, 2016). This issue calls for original papers based on field research that contribute to knowing how the transformation of agricultural and rural systems in emerging and developing countries is financed, and more specifically, how farmers are financed. It aims, in particular, at delving into the new practices in the field of agricultural and rural financing, which is often marginalized in development financing policies.
