    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.

    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.

    The Caribbean against the covid-19: A global crisis and local solutions

    "Études caribéennes" Journal #48

    Officially affected by the COVID19 pandemic in early March 2020, the Caribbean Basin is concerned about the fragility of its social fabric and the wide disparities in public health policies from one State to another, which make a comprehensive response at the regional level impossible. The situation worsened at the end of May with the withdrawal of US funding to the World Health Organization (WHO), finally condemning the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), an emblematic figure in the fight against epidemics in the islands and on the continent, to a drastic reduction in its interventions, or even its disappearance. In this way, this issue seeks to respond to various concerns about the regional impact of the pandemic, around the central issue: to what extent the economic, political and/or social impact hovers around unresolved points in the construction of Caribbean Nation-States that prevent them from facing the crisis.

    Health: New Challenges for Development

    « Revue internationale des études du développement », n°247 (2021-3)

    A call for papers on health and development cannot but mention the current pandemic crisis. While international aid in the health sector has been rather stagnant of late, the Covid-19 pandemic could put health and infectious diseasesback at the heart of long-run priorities, particularly in countries of the South. While the African continent remains relatively unaffected, low-income countries share several characteristics: fragile and poorly funded healthcare systems that currently seem to be coping nonetheless, as well as a significant burden due to endemic health problems, including non communicable diseases. An integrated, unified approach to public and environmental health at different scales therefore seems more necessary than ever, especially in the context of climate change. This global crisis therefore provides new opportunities to better interlink the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and rethink the health and development nexus.

    5th International "Language and Territory" Colloquium

    This multidisciplinary colloquium will discuss the different ways that languages and territories are linked, and will show the political, social and economic stakes that arise from the relationships between them. Above all, these terms refer to men and women with their social practices and representations, at the core of the logic of territoriality. New territories give rise to new language practices, which, in turn, create new spaces, discourse and meaning. The "boundaries" we draw between languages and territories are permeable in time and space, depending on factors such as population displacement, language policies, linguistic and social representations, education, mass media and socio-cultural values.

    5th congress of the International Ergology Society

    La démarche de l’ergologie offre-t-elle une approche pertinente dans le champ des questions intégrant le travail, le patrimoine et le développement ? Dans quelle mesure sa contribution est-elle singulière et innovante ? Afin d’établir un bilan et de tracer des perspectives, le principal objectif du cinquième congrès de la Société internationale d’ergologie (SIE) est de mettre en débats, au cours de trois journées, les travaux qui, en plusieurs lieux du monde, ont fait l’option de s’engager dans cette réflexion, tout en ayant parfois privilégié auparavant d’autres cadres de référence. La diversité des approches constituera un atout essentiel de cette rencontre qui se veut donc pluridisciplinaire.

    Tourism and international labels. Protection and commercialization

    UNESCO's labels (World Heritage, Biosphere Reserves, Creative Cities, Global Geoparks) have been created, amongst other reasons, to ensure the sustainable development of areas with special characteristics. Each label has specific objectives, be it conservation or protection, education, or networking of these areas. While these labels have not been designed to contribute to the commercialization of tourism, many destinations enjoy the prestige, reputation, and guarantee of quality or exceptionality associated with these labels to attract visitors, residents, and investors. Some site managers also use these labels to educate residents and visitors about their specific characteristics. The use of these international labels in a marketing context therefore poses a large number of challenges, both from practical and theoretical points of view.

    Haïti: An Earthquake for Gender

    Revue internationale des études du développement - 2019/3

    This special issue aims at bringing to light scientific knowledge which counterbalances thestereotyping of Haitian and Caribbean women’s rights. For centuries, Haitian women have beendeeply marked by the geostrategic interests of various world powers, and they are still the object of narratives whose androcentrism is explicit. This sp ecial issue will provide an opportunity to debate Haitian women’s varied experiencesthrough new epistemic and political postures, questioning western perceptions of Haiti. Thus, it will contribute to developing research largely based on practices, experiences, ideas, and theories produced in the Caribbean with an awareness for the logics of coloniality. The aim will be to bring to light an emerging literature in Haiti and, more broadly, in the French-speaking Caribbean. It will also place recent changes in the context of structural historicity, what tookplace since 2010 also being explained by structural mutations which began prior to the earthquake.

    Women of the Americas

    The recognition of women’s place in American societies has become a crucial social, cultural, political and economic issue, as evidenced by worldwide protest movements such as Ni Una Menos that started in Argentina – a feminist movement fighting against feminicides and gender-based violence – or the Women’s March against President Donald Trump in the United States. Whether these protests have to do with the struggle for women’s right to vote, the sexual revolution that started in the 1960s, or social movements denouncing gender-based violence in urban and rural environments, they highlight a continuity between yesterday’s feminist fights and their re-adaptation in the public space.

    The Caribbean City, the Cities in the Caribbean

    N° 39, 2018 - The Caribbean City, the Cities in the Caribbean

    The Caribbean city, the unknown. Heterogeneous human settlements, legacies of the colonial era, refuge of the disadvantaged and homeless, mixed and fragmented, and the showcases of Caribbean tourism, the urban Caribbean presents itself as the economic ambition of these insular territories and other shores bathed by the Caribbean sea. The Caribbean city, a chaotic juxtaposition of modernity and the colonial past, and existing both as a social and political symbol, opens up a rich and immense new area. Sometimes characterized by European allure, the remainder of Africa - some may say -, American city - without a doubt -, hybrid format, the Caribbean city presents a particular subject of study.

    Waste Sciences, Knowledges and Practices

    European, North and Latin American perspectives

    Waste has emerged as a main environmental, economic and social issue in the last fifty years. The convergence of interests from various fields of reflection and action suggests a potential and fruitful “epistemological turn”. Yet this process is still on the verge of formalization. Research and decision on waste organizational and representational systems remain either fragmented or dependent on local context though some waste management recommendations arise from worries on the global consequences of discard. Hence this international symposium aims at opening transatlantic conversations between academic, technical and artistic areas in order to clarify how waste challenges our everyday sciences, knowledges and practices.
