    The Press of Exile(s)

    Centré sur la question coloniale dans la presse d’exil, le congrès vise à discuter la liminalité des expériences d’occupation, de dissidence, de clandestinité et de bannissement dans leur rapport à l’expatriation politique, tant en raison des similitudes de leur impact psychologique que des circulations qu'elles tendent à favoriser. L’objectif est d’encourager les études qui explorent les idées, les images et les débats autour du colonialisme et des réalités coloniales mobilisées par les périodiques d’exil, tant dans leur diversité que mettant en exergue les convergences et les divergences.

    Pan-Africanisms, (Post-)Slavery and Race

    « Esclavages et Post-Esclavages / Slaveries and Post-Slaveries » Journal

    This issue of Slaveries & Post-Slaveries examines the repercussions of the transatlantic matrix of race on post-slavery societies. Particular attention will be paid to societies on the African continent, as the racial logics operating within them have rarely been studied. We understand racial logics as the assumption that supposed physical and cultural differences between groups are “inherited” from one generation to the next.

    Crime and Society: historical dynamics in contemporary times

    Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal, issue 22

    Crime, its practice and its repression arouse great attention and curiosity in our days. Reported and investigated by the media, literature or cinema, among others, crime is currently a constant presence in our daily life. In the field of History, particularly in Social History, crime has established itself as a relevant topic of study, especially since the second half of the 20th century and, since then, several lines of research have been pursued and explored. This issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal is looking for contributions that reflect on Crime and Society in the 19th and 20th centuries.

    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.

    Women on stage: From the backstage to the to limelight

    Women in theatre until the 19th century

    Since its origin, the History of Theatre has been built by male names. However, it is unthinkable that women have not also had an important role in this construction. Besides existing as characters, their contributions as performers, playwrights, composers, entrepreneurs, patrons, scenographers or costume designers, among a broad range of other functions, were fundamental to the development of the theatrical practice. This conference aims to recover the place of women in theatre since its origin until the 19th century, covering a wide variety of topics, which have women at their centre, either as the focus of a show or as marginal, as star or tertiary figure, as part of the audience or as producer of the cultural object. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive and transdisciplinary debate in order to rediscover the place of women in theatre in a global and historical approach.

    La « Révolution des Œillets », révolution portugaise et mondiale

    Dossier spécial de la revue Lusotopie sur le Cinquantenaire du 25 avril 1974

    Le 24 avril 1974 au soir, les désormais célèbres « capitaines d’avril » commencèrent leur coup d’État au nom d’un programme simple, celui des « trois D » : décoloniser, démocratiser, développer. Il s’agissait surtout de mettre fin à près de quatorze ans de guerre coloniale, une guerre qui ne pouvait pas être gagnée militairement, qui isolait le Portugal sur la scène internationale, brûlait près la moitié du budget de l’État et poussait la jeunesse à prendre le chemin de l’exil pour éviter de partir au combat. Cinquante ans après le 25 avril 1974, Lusotopie publie un dossier spécial pour étudier les aspects de cette révolution qui pourraient avoir été sous-étudiés.

    Afro Literature Conference

    Cuando decidimos abordar el estudio de la “literatura africana”, nos enfrentamos a una serie de problemas, en tanto campo complejo de tensiones, de núcleos constitutivos, de perspectivas, inherentes a toda etiqueta formada por la palabra literatura y un gentilicio. Una dificultad no menor la encontramos en los planes de estudios de las carreras de Letras en Argentina cuyo “patrón cognitivo” (Quijano 2017) aún persiste dentro de los rasgos de un patrón de poder fundado en la colonialidad: el centro no ha sido del todo desplazado, para decirlo con wa Thiong’o (2014).  El eurocentrismo académico en nuestro país perdura en el escaso interés que el pensamiento africano y afrodiaspórico ocupa en las carreras de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales, con destacadas excepciones siempre individuales o colectivas pero rara vez institucionale.

    A Time after a Setback: Persistent Reverberations of the Carnation Revolution

    Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal Nº 21

    At a time when there will be multiple proposals for perspectives on the fiftieth anniversary of April 25, 1974, a revolution marked by a euphoria that surpassed the day before and that surprised the day after, in an unlocking of the future, we suggest a look at the threshold of several disciplines in this cross-sectional issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal, between the social and human sciences, the arts, literature and other forms of intervention in reality, through four areas.

    Missionary strategies and practices, slavery and forced labour (early 19th-mid 20th century)

    Another discussion on the institutional position of the churches in relation to slavery will be resolutely avoided. What will be analysed is the concrete confrontation —or cohabitation— with slavery. What did missionaries know about their slave environment? How did they learn about it? How did they take a stand? How did they act–or not? Same questions as far as indentured labour and the colonial forms of forced labour were concerned. Were there confrontations, mediations and misunderstandings?

    Villes en temps de crises démocratiques et climatiques

    Dialogues franco-lusophones

    Depuis plus de dix ans, les dialogues franco-lusophones permettent de promouvoir des échanges scientifiques bilingues sur les enjeux urbains contemporains dans les aires culturelles de langues française et portugaise. Chaque édition interroge, dans une perspective interdisciplinaire, internationale et comparative, le devenir des villes, aux nords comme aux suds, confrontées aux enjeux globaux et locaux, qu’ils soient climatiques, sociaux, économiques, politiques, culturels. Dans la continuité d’une approche critique et dans l’objectif de consolider des récits communs sur les défis des villes au XXIe siècle, l’édition 2023 questionnera les dynamiques urbaines en temps de crises démocratiques et climatiques.

    Deciphering censorship

    From regulation to the production of invisibilities, from the archive to the Internet: an interdisciplinary approach

    We invite all parties interested in the theme of censorship to participate in the conference across any of the four axes detailed below. Nevertheless, there is an openness to other proposals that set out new paths and, hence, the framework below is in no way exhaustive: Analytical models and methodologies; Framework for the factor of international circulation; Meta-analysis; Implications of censorship.

    Rhythm and Art

    Rhythm is a central element in the creation of meaning in art, and its configuration is such that it requires a multi, inter and transdisciplinary approach. The difference of materials, procedures and events masks the resemblance of rhythmic phenomena that are similar in different arts and hides their identity or their homology. In the work of some scholars, the concepts do not seem to belong to a particular artistic discipline, being rather characteristic of the rhythmic phenomenon. The objective of this conference is to provide an instance for exchanging knowledge, concerns and aspirations for those who have been devoting themselves to the study of rhythm and artistic creation on the subject.

    Gender in Slave and Post-Emancipation Societies in Global Contexts

    « Esclavages et Post-Esclavages / Slaveries and Post-Slaveries » Journal

    The last two decades have witnessed an uptick in the production of scholarly literature concerning enslaved, emancipated, and free women in slave societies in the Atlantic World. More recently, scholars have also begun to examine femininity and masculinity, nonbinary gender expression, nonnormative sexualities, and the family as lenses through which to understand the making and maintaining of those societies. In this special issue of Esclavages & Post-Esclavages / Slaveries & Post-Slaveries, the editors seek to build on and extend this work by focusing on gender, as an analytical frame and category, in slave and post-emancipation societies beyond and/or in comparison with the Atlantic basin. We aim to understand the influence of Atlantic world scholarship on global slave studies, while also attending to contextual distinctions outside of the Atlantic context.

    Crises in the Americas

    Revue « RITA » N°16

    Crises are generally understood as undesirable, unexpected and contingent situations. In this issue of RITA, we wish to question the production of these phenomena that are calledcrises, from “laissez-faire” to “negligence”; from the banalization of the crisis in media oracademic discourse to the enunciation processes of public authorities. In “times of crises”, theywill justify more directly the imposition of social, economic or even military measures.
