    XVIII International Symposium on Civilizing Processes

    The National University of Colombia and the Department of Citizen Culture of the Secretary of Culture, Recreation and Sport of Bogota, Colombia have joined forces to organize the upcoming XVIII International Symposium on Civilizing Processes (SIPC). The SIPCs were born in 1996 on a Brazilian initiative and have been held every two years in Latin America to encourage the exchange of ideas and research results among scientists from various disciplines who find in Norbert Elias’ work a source of guidance in facing the challenges of today’s world and who share an interest in social sciences adjusted to reality.

    #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.

    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.

    Numerous armed conflicts around the world make that peace be a longing for millions. In the case of Colombia, peace has been sought for more than 60 years of an internal conflict that seems to be coming to an end, thanks to the final agreement that the Colombian government and the FARC-EP reached to ‘end the armed conflict and build a stable and lasting peace

    Social Rights and Democracy

    Prim@ Facie, Vol 15, No 29 (2016)

    We are especially interested in manuscripts on social rights and democracy. Our intent is to prepare a set of discussions on how democracies promote social rights today, i.e., to what extent social movements, legal institutions, parliaments and executive power are able to find solutions to the challenges of democracies today? Have, for example, affirmative action, housing and health care programs, and even direct financial assistance to the poor actually reduced inequality? In addition, what are the most effective solutions for poverty? Are courts the best way to ensure social rights today? We are also interested in papers that address the costs of social programs. These are some of the possibilities, but many other questions may be brought to the table. We encourage submissions based on historical approaches carried out by jurists, political scientists, historians, sociologists, and other professionals in fields that have particular focus on legal problems.

À cette fin, nous invitons les chercheurs issus de différentes sciences sociales et humaines à soumettre des articles qui nous permettent de mieux connaître les organisations, les idées et les identités des droites latino-américaines au XXe siècle.
