    Black Lives Matter: a transnational movement

    Revue « Esclavages et post-esclavages / Slaveries and post-slaveries »

    The aim of this special number is therefore to bring together articles analysing the growth of Black Lives Matter (BLM) to a transnational movement. Contributions should show awareness of the concrete modes of circulation and appropriation, and to the repercussions of campaigns linked to BLM, but also of the historical and political ruptures and continuities implied and explained by them. Contributions bearing on the role of new information and communications technologies (NITC) and social networks, especially in the spreading of images (videos of police violence, artworks etc), and their role in the transnational development of the movement will be given close attention.

    Thematic Dossier vol. XIII, n. 2, 2021

    Blackness and Racial Relations

    Revue « Horizontes Antropológicos »

    La revue internationale Horizontes Antropológicos lance un appel à contribution pour son dossier thématique « Négritude et relations raciales ». Le concept de race, même repensé scientifiquement et compris comme une construction sociale et politique, demeure un défi académique, compte tenu de la façon dont sont vécues les relations raciales et de pouvoir et la manière dont cette question est inscrite à l’ordre du jour de la lutte contre le racisme. Ce dossier vise à rassembler des travaux récents et critiques qui repositionnent les sciences sociales quant au concept de race et à l’étude des relations raciales. Les travaux s’inscriront dans les débats sur l’intersectionnalité de genre, de race, de génération, de classe, sur l’invisibilité des relations raciales dans le champ scientifique et les expériences de racialisation à l’échelle globale.

    What happened with the LGBTQI+ "rights revolution" in Latin America?

    Nr. 99 - Cahiers des Amériques latines

    Ten years after Argentina's emblematic "same-sex marriage" law, this issue of Cahiers des Amériques Latines examines the notion of a "rights revolution" [Encarnación, 2016] and takes stock of the situation of sexual and gender minorities in the region. Three lines of research seem essential to propose a critical reflection on the reality of sexual and gender minorities and to evaluate the LGBTQI+ "rights revolution" in Latin America.

    American cities facing global changes

    Interdisciplinary Journal of Papers on the Americas (RITA) nr. 13

    Nowadays, the assessment of environmental changes worldwide is indisputable. Interdependent processes – such as global warming, the extinction of species, soil depletion and scarce energy resources – deeply alter the living conditions in our societies, from a material and symbolic point of view. These systemic transformations go well beyond the physical environment or climate change; they can be understood thanks to the concept of “global changes” that has become a main research topic in the fields of social and environmental sciences over the past thirty years. For its thirteenth issue, RITA will dedicate its section Thema to American cities facing global changes.

    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.

    Communisms and political dissent

    The idea of communism and the great hope brought by the Russian revolution of 1917 marked, as a utopia and as political praxis, the contemporary social thought and the International Workers' Movement, between heated quarrels and endless controversies, sowing dissensions, verbal wars, profound sectarianisms and irreconcilable divergencies. Distinct societal models, organisational conceptions and political cultures have developed like different branches of a common trunk, becoming autonomous and crystallising.

    Fields of collaboration in contemporary art practices

    Can all art be considered collaborative? What has motivated so many artists, in recent decades, to organize in collectives and participate in collaborative projects? Does collaboration in the arts play a major role in redefining the art world and in the production of new subjectivities? How do collaborative art practices challenge the myths of creative genius and artistic individuality?

    When women film: the documentary in the Iberian peninsula and in the Latin-American continent

    Ce colloque international et interuniversitaire aura pour objet l'étude de la production documentaire réalisée par des femmes des pays de la péninsule ibérique ou du continent latino-américain. Il a pour visée de repenser, dans une perspective transdisciplinaire, les cadres épistémologiques de l’analyse de l’image documentaire. Il réfléchira aux manières dont les films documentaires, maintenus dans une double marginalité, celle du documentaire et celle due au statut des femmes, ont agi comme des opérations d’intelligibilité du monde.

    The Hydraulics in Monumental Buildings

    The hydraulic system is an architectural subsystem that can only be understood in view of the dual constitution of its structure: one at ground level, that referrers to potable water (lower hydraulic subsystem), and other concerning rainwater (upper hydraulic subsystem). They both involve aspects of major importance for the functioning of any building: catchment, distribution and evacuation of the waters. In the last decade, research was carried out on the hydraulic component of historical architecture, either religious or civil, considering technical and artistic issues, not only in Portugal, but throughout Europe.

    The epoch of space. State and new perspectives

    For centuries, the study of time was one of the main academic interests in the field of Humanities. However, in the second half of the 20th century, most scholars and philosophers shifted their focus to the question of space. The interest in studying this in the field of the arts has increased significantly in recent years, and is especially noticeable in the case of literary creations.The growing influence of ecocriticism and geocriticism is especially noticeable in digital humanities. The bridges recently built between these fields are already proving to be productive, as they have led to the development of new tools, approaches, and methodologies, such as deep mapping techniques and the spatial humanities. How have the disciplines evolved in recent years? Do we need to redefine the key concepts regarding space and place? Has our relationship with territory changed? Have we produced new ways of inhabiting space?

    Thinking social bonds in Iberian America. Languages, experiences and temporalities (16th-21st centuries)

    De l’époque de la Conquête et de la colonisation jusqu’à nos jours, les liens sociaux ont été extraordinairement intenses, complexes et conflictuels en Amérique ibérique. Il est possible d’explorer le langage social de la solidarité et de la désunion, et de se demander comment, depuis la fin du XIXe siècle, les sciences sociales et la psychologie sociale ont oscillé entre discours, enquêtes et conceptualisations selon une tentative toujours renouvelée de rendre compte des spécificités, des pathologies et des adaptations de sociétés de plus en plus diversifiées. En tant qu’élément substantiel du lien social, la mémoire collective peut être abordée selon une perspective historiographique qui explore la diversité de ses motifs et de ses manifestations tout au long des cinq derniers siècles.
