    1956-1958: A revolutionary period that changed Africa (and the world)

    The objective of this panel is to compare the various social mobilizations that took place in Africa during the years 1956-1958 and which arguably constitute a historical watershed. The main aim of the panel is not the making of an abstract comparative analysis, but the analysis, based on the testimonial material collected, of how the memory of these events has been structured over time. Moreover, we are interested in understanding what the impacts of these social movements were on the structuring of states and what continuities can be found between the mobilizations of that period and the ary social mobilizations that have shaken the continent in the last ten years, from the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011 onwards.

    In Search of Rights: social movements, judicial institutions and public policies

    Ciências Sociais Unisinos Vol. 56, nº 3 (september - december 2020)

    The global expansion of the judiciary and access to justice has highlighted institutions of the justice system that focus on defending social rights. Realizing the judicial path as an important way in the search for access to health rights, education, social assistance, among others, social movements began to equip themselves legally to work with judicial institutions. Judicial and also extrajudicial appeals, without the so-called judicialization, are increasingly frequent. The proposed Dossier aims to present the debate on the effects of interaction between social movements, judicial institutions and public policies, theoretically and empirically discussing questions about how social movements mobilize law and judicial institutions to claim and guarantee access to rights? How does this interaction impact the production of public policies? How do mobilizations through judicial institutions affect the different stages of public policy? What are the new governance standards installed from these interactions? And, on the other hand, what are the effects of the use of judicial strategy on social movements?

    Colombian history congress

    Le congrès de Cúcuta de 1821 approuva une constitution dont le principal objectif était la création de la République de Colombie, plus connue sous le nom de Grande Colombie. Issue des mouvements révolutionnaires et militaires qui aboutirent à la formation de gouvernements indépendants et des régimes politiques modernes sur des territoires qui jusqu’alors avaient appartenu aux possessions d’outre-mer des empires de l’Espagne et du Portugal, la Colombie se composait de l’union des actuels États de Colombie, du Venezuela, d'Équateur et du Panama. Le congrès d’histoire à la Villa du Rosaire, tout en profitant de l’actuelle conjoncture commemorative, offre une occasion de réflexion unique sur les indépendances et sur l’histoire contemporaine colombienne en général.

    #MariellePresente - Transnational Resistances

    The Gender and Diversity Journal, a feminist and queer review from the northeastern region of Brazil, invites everyone to submit articles, essays, interviews, field journals, reports and other texts for the special issue entitled "#MariellePresente: Transnational Resistances". The texts must describe and analyze the transnational responses following the assassination of the Brazilian Marielle Franco. She was a black woman from the favela, political activist, feminist and lesbian. She was murdered at the corner of a street in Rio de Janeiro in March 2018. Given the political nature of her assassination, many actions denouncing the crime were organized around the world.

    The gender of professions

    Clomparative perspectives in the sociology of professional groups, the sociology of gender and the the sociology of migrations

    The object of this session is the sociological theorization of the relation between gender and profession. Today, the question is less the exclusion of women from work defined as professional, considering their feinization, than their routine inclusion in ill-defined support roles. The presentations could cross several approaches (of sociology of professional groups, gender, migrations, intersectionality...) to deal with issues like :inequalities in women's access to certain professions, male resistance to women's carrers, delegation of "dirty work", the specific and cultural construction of a masculinist vision of profession work, how professions professes gender, the effects of liberalisation of professions (in many sectors like Health, Culture or Law) on their feminization...

    Social movements in overseas departments since the beginning of the 21st century

    Presages of a new era for overseas departments

    Ce colloque vise à faire le point sur les mobilisations sociales qui touchent depuis le début du XXIe siècle les entités ultramarines régies par l'article 73 de la Constitution. En effet, les territoires qui ont connu le processus de la départementalisation (Guyane, Guadeloupe, Martinique, La Réunion, Mayotte) connaissent depuis près d’une décennie des mouvements de contestation d’une ampleur inédite qui paralysent leur vie économique et sociale pendant plusieurs semaines voire plusieurs mois. Les revendications évoquées lors de ces mobilisations (vie chère, inégalités, insécurité, immigration,...) ont mis en évidence l’existence d’un profond malaise vis-à-vis de la situation économique et sociale de ces territoires en dépit de la constante amélioration de leurs principaux indicateurs économiques et sociodémographiques au cours de ces dernières décennies. L’objectif de ce colloque, conçu dans une double perspective, interdisciplinaire et comparatiste, est de faire le bilan de ces mobilisations et de penser ce qu’elles révèlent de l’état du modèle départemental aujourd’hui.

    Resilient spatial planification in high risk territories: comparative approaches in the Amazon and Caribbean

    LabEx Céba "Plastic" theme school

    L’école thématique PLASTIC a pour objectif de proposer un cadre de recherche pluridisciplinaire sur la conceptualisation socioécologique de la notion de planification spatiale (territoriale) dite « résiliente ». Le caractère polysémique du concept de planification sous-tend qu’il s’agit bien plus d’une diversité de savoir-faire que de généralités théoriques. Dans sa dimension environnementale, elle favorise l’émergence, la mise en œuvre et la diffusion des savoir-faire qui privilégient l’opérationnalisation des préceptes du développement durable. La durabilité est actuellement traitée par l’économie écologique à partir de la notion de « substitualité limitée » dudit « capital naturel ». Contrairement à la stabilité inhérente à la notion de durabilité, dans cette nouvelle perspective, la question de la limite y est fréquemment abordée sous l’angle de  la résilience.

    Conference, symposium - America

    Thinking Latin-American Right-Wings in the XXth Century

    This conference is the continuation of two previous conferences held in France (2014) and Argentina (2016) which saw the gradual emergence of a community of researchers working on the questions of identities, ideas, practices and discourses of actors and movements from Latin American rightwing. It is difficult to establish the precise conceptual limits of the rightwing because of the heterogeneity and plurality of the groups and movements that have historically been part of this family and which are thus characterized by the presence of diverse political traditions. It is therefore essential to imagine flexible boundaries when considering rightwing history and taking into account the changes it experienced over time. Our purpose is not to establish canonical definitions, but rather to contribute to set general frameworks for this field of study whose historical relevance and actuality are no longer to be demonstrated, but whose limits and fundamental characteristics are still debated.

    The Great War seen from the “Periphery”: East Asia and Ibero-America

    The International Workshop “The Great War seen from the ‘Periphery’: East Asia and Ibero-America” intends to encourage a comparative discussion on the impact of the war in East Asia and Ibero-America, and also about possible entanglements as well as communalities regarding a shift in perception of the ‘European Great Powers’ and a world order centered very much on them before 1914. It will gather researchers specialized in Japan, China and Ibero-america, who will focus on the ‘mediatization’ of the war in those regions.
