    Welcoming Migrants in the City : Interrogating Urban Policy and Civic Action

    This symposium proposes to explore the underlying processes in the construction of welcoming initiatives towards migrants in urban areas, to question the theoretical frameworks that support them, including the duty of hospitality in humanitarian action, the offer of “sanctuary” by local authorities in conflict with the State, and the cosmopolitan and progressive image of the “welcoming city”. The conference aims to continue these lines of analysis in an international perspective, by bringing together scholars from Europe, the Americas, Africa, and beyond, in order to interrogate the urban reception of migrants from perspectives that are complementary and attentive to specific environments, in terms of the characteristics of migration dynamics and the existing forms of action. Approaches from anthropology, sociology, geography, political science, law, and urban studies are welcome.

    The world of work and the challenges of ecological transition

    Chronique du Travail journal no.12

    Les impératifs de la transition écologique pénètrent le monde du travail à travers des dimensions multiples et transversales : sous le prisme de la santé des travailleurs, de l’évolution des métiers, des emplois verts, de la formation, de la reconversion professionnelle ou encore des relations professionnelles, etc. L’ensemble des enjeux environnementaux qui traversent les entreprises révèlent à quel point les croisements entre environnement et travail sont ancrés dans la réalité et impliquent la participation de toutes les parties prenantes, au premier chef les travailleurs et leurs représentants. À l’heure où la loi Climat et Résilience vient d’être adoptée, cet appel à contribution permet de se saisir d’un sujet d’avenir pour mieux appréhender les interactions qui se tissent autour du rapport travail / transition écologique, en croisant les approches de plusieurs disciplines en sciences humaines et sociales.

    História de Lisboa: espaços e sociabilidades

    Numa parceria entre a Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa e o Instituto de História da Arte da Universidade Nova de Lisboa,  pretende-se recuperar a tradição formativa em Estudos Olisiponenses, imprimindo-lhe, contudo, um espírito novo, insuflado pelo contributo conjugado de investigadores de gerações e formações diversificadas, cujos trabalhos permitem oferecer uma estrutura concetual apelativa e atualizada. Sob o título «Lisboa: espaços e sociabilidades», propõe-se a realização de catorze sessões divididas em dois núcleos, «Lisboa, cidade global» e «Novos estudos sobre Lisboa», com matrizes de análise que se estendem da arte e urbanismo à política e antropologia. Complementa o curso uma visita temática orientada por um especialista e remata-o a «Lisboa, crónica anedótica» de Leitão de Barros, a visualizar na Cinemateca Portuguesa.
