    Migration intermediaries

    Journal of international migration

    Political and media rhetoric in Europe or North America reduces the category of migration intermediaries to that of “smugglers or traffickers, described as greedy and unscrupulous”. This vague and reductive figure helps to legitimize repressive and humanitarian policies towards migrants, who then mobilize different resources, networks and strategies in order to move around, often taking ever greater risks. To be satisfied with this reading, which makes the migration issue a crisis to be solved, inevitably obscures the diversity of actors involved in “migratory globalization”. The complexity of their role, interests and actions is evaded, even though it cuts across many institutions, including the States themselves. Indeed, the latter contribute, through the policies they deploy and the treaties they sign, sometimes to the detriment of international law, for purposes of control and repression, but also for the management and supervision of the workforce, to the emergence of a myriad of actors who are indispensable to both movement and settlement.

    Organisation du travail : le retour. Quelles interprétations ?

    While companies and public administrations have been questioning their work organisation and operating methods since the 2010s and seem to be open to measures offering more autonomy to employees, sociology remains short of the expectations of clarification and analysis. This call for papers from the journal Sociologie du travail is an invitation to question the current phase of managerial reinvestment in the question of work organisation. It invites to propose results of studies or theoretical analyses that help to identify what a sociological viewpoint can propose to better interpret the reconstituted interest of companies for the problems of work organisation and to understand the processes underway.

    « Ius et Religio ». Droit, religions anciennes et christianisme dans l’Antiquité

    LXXVe session de la société internationale Fernand de Visscher pour l’histoire des droits de l’Antiquité

    Fernand De Visscher was a professor of Belgian Roman law, a humanist convinced of the importance of scientific exchanges between foreign scholars, to which the laws of antiquity – as the common matrix of European legal systems – lend themselves so well. Romanists and legal historians from all over the world will thus come together for this anniversary session around the theme: "Ius and Religio. Law, Ancient Religions and Christianity in Antiquity". The contemporary crisis of universalisms, as well as the resurgence of fundamentalisms, both religious and secular, require more than ever an informed look at “religion” in its historical and institutional relationships with law, the state, and society.

    Listening to Justice

    Revue « Criminocorpus »

    The question of images in court and the video recording of trials has been addressed extensively. Christian Delage, who has precisely worked on the validity of images as evidence at the Nuremberg trials, put forward the notion of “hermeneutic prerogative of the image”. However, the history of the sound of justice has yet to be explored, even though recent works in the historiography of the judiciary as well as research in sound and listening studies do suggest the field might prove a fruitful one. Covering all historical periods in a diachronic perspective, this dossier aims to “listen to justice” throughout its entire process, from the early stages of investigations to court hearings, through periods of custody.

    Crises et prises de la parole

    Revue « Mutations en Méditerranée »

    For this first issue, we propose to take the different disciplinary languages of our editorial board as a starting point and to consider speech as an object of study. We propose to consider “speech” in a broad manner, thus understanding it as designating any thought expressed, and paying particular attention to who the speakers are, which mediums they employ and what their motives may be. Firstly, we consider speaking out in times of crisis, in the hopes of being heard. But does all speech have the same influence or impact? Which words are heard and heeded? We submit various lines of thought ranging from the Arab uprisings, whose tenth anniversary we are celebrating, to the place speech occupies in social movements. Our contemplation of this topic ranges from the hierarchy of languages to the hierarchies of discourse, to the role of scientific discussion in society and within the restitution of an interviewees or respondents spoken word within the framework of research investigation in the humanities.

    Maritime spaces, temporalities and global changes

    Fourth congress of Scientific interest Group of History and Sciences of the Sea

    Born in the 1970s, the concept of global change refers to the study of short-, medium- and long-term interactions between the climate, the biosphere, the ocean, the land surface and, of course, human activities. As a systemic conceptual framework, global change invites us to consider the Earth as a whole, so that it allows for the study of all scales, authorizes the study of sub-systems and does not consider human activities as a forcing external to the system but as an agent in its own right. Within the framework of its 4th congress, the SIG-CNRS of History & Sciences of the Sea proposes to study the concept of global change applied to the different scales of maritime spaces as well as to short, medium and long term interaction.

    Learning from territories / Teaching territories

    In German (lehren / lernen) as in Arabic (تعليم / تعلم), a single letter distinguishes the concept of teaching from the concept of learning. Whether defined as a theoretical object of scientific knowledge that can be taught or as a body of practices that can be passed on, there is no escaping the need to address the issue of the relationship between the apparent universality of the concept of territory, on the one hand, and the variety of uses to which the term is put and the range of practices associated with it, on the other. The sixth CIST conference will focus on two questions: how to teach about territories (academic knowledge, empirical methods, disciplinary approaches, etc.) and how to learn from territories (observing, exploring, describing, experiencing, etc.).

    Data & Environment: towards a sustainable future

    During the three-day conference, we will choose four topics linked with the applications we will receive. Selected applications will help the Ph.D. students get to know each other and debate the sustainable development goals (SDG) and the environmental transition. Therefore, the different axes will make it possible to question the use of data and their information / processing structure, in relation to the ethical aspects of environmental standards, and more particularly satellite data within the framework of the 17 SDGs. They will be led by experts and doctoral students, as well as include artistic performances and awareness workshops.

    Speaking and Writing

    Complementarity, Competition and Hybridization of the Spoken and the Written Word (16th and 17th century Europe)

    The workshop will explore the complex relations between the spoken and the written word in 16th and 17th century Europe. Both modes of expression have been studied in a new light during the last years. But research on the interactions between the spoken and the written word is still at the beginning. It is a promising domain, linked to important questions about Early Modern history and its sources. How did the transitions between orality and writing (in both ways) work out in different situations? When the two modes were in competition, how were choices made and justified? When and where did the spoken word duplicate, complete, moderate, contradict or undermine the written word? When there was complementarity between the modes of expression, what mutual influences can be observed, mainly (but not only) from a formal point of view?

    Society in the age of covid-19

    Causes, issues and consequences of a crisis

    La crise du covid-19 a touché tous les pans de la société à tous les niveaux, et avec des conséquences sur le plan social, économique, juridique, politique, psychologique, éducatif, écologique, numérique, communicationnel, artistique, technologique, etc. Pour l’appréhender pleinement, il est nécessaire de l’analyser sous différents angles, que cela soit à un niveau individuel, collectif ou sociétal. Cette crise révèle plus que jamais les liens entre ces différents enjeux et avec nos modes de vie. Du point de vue de la recherche, cette crise est aussi le moyen de s’engager plus encore dans des approches scientifiques inter- pluri- et transdisciplinaires de ces questionnements afin de favoriser l’émergence de nouvelles perspectives quant à la façon dont nous envisageons la science et la façon de traiter les enjeux tels que ceux mentionnés.

    Controversies over Methods in European Union law

    This series of seminars aims at providing an overview of different methods in European Union law, both old and new, both mainstream and not, by putting them in perspective with each other and by questioning their underlying assumptions. In order to do so, participants are expected to engage in a reflexive exercise that will make their methods and their position in the controversy explicit: What methods do they use and what do these methods imply? With whom and against whom do they think European Union law? Do they find it useful to exhume an author that in their view has been unduly neglected or, on the contrary, to call for new approaches to understand EU law?
