    Cozinhando imagens, tejiendo feminismos. Latin american feminist film and visual art collectives

    During the last years, there has been a revitalization of feminist movements internationally. In Latin America, the performance of ‘A Rapist in Your Path’ by the collective LasTesis on 25 November 2019 put Chilean feminism in the global spotlight. This revitalization is also pushing for political and legal reforms, such as the approval of a bill legalising abortion in Argentina on 30 December 2020. The alliances between feminists, artists, and filmmakers in Latin America are not new. Fuelled by the 1970s women’s movement, several feminist film collectives emerged during this decade and instrumentalized cinema to raise awareness about women’s issues and intervene in political contexts.

    Childhood(s) in Latin America: diversities in tension

    hematic Dossier vol. XIII, n. 2, 2021

    The focus of the dossier is on the processes and social spaces for the construction and implementation of ideas about childhood, as well as the debates and tensions around them: education (formal, non-formal or informal) the family and parenting networks (nurture and care), the dynamics of gender construction and the collective sense of belonging (ethnicities and intercultural relations), labour aspects (rural and urban marginality and the issue of child labour) and areas of cultural production of each social group (the imaginaries, games, literature, sports and children entertainment).

    The Emergence and Construction of the Modern Schooling Paradigm (Mid-20th Century – First quarter of the 20th Century)

    This issue seeks to map a wide range of public institutions, pioneering experiences and innovative pedagogic discourses that informed and consolidated an explicit educational impulse at the tail end of the Early Modern Period. This issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal seeks to contribute with its specific inquiries to an understanding of a wide-ranging civilizational endeavour that has never ceased to connect – in increasingly efficient and substantial ways – the spheres of power and knowledge.

    Decolonial studies. From theory to practice

    Abya Yala, Caribbean, Africa, Europe, Asia

    The arrival and emergence of studies, research or reflections claiming to be “decolonial” in Europe or in formerly colonised societies (particularly in Africa) should not be reduced to another anachronistic or nativist intellectual mode seeking to simplify or replay colonial encounters as certain authors or journalists (especially in France) think. If these studies seem recent to the French-speaking reader, and more particularly to the French reader, it should be pointed out that they stem from a Latin-American intellectual critical tradition (dialoguing with several intellectual streams such as the theory of dependence, liberation theology, studies on the world-system) and that several publications by Latin-American or Latin-American researchers have been describing them for several decades.

    Dance: history and historiography

    This dossier is inserted in the field of dance, its history and historiographies – in the web of complexities of processes of centralizations and decentralizations, influences and consolidation, circulation, appropriations, migrations and transpositions of sources, uses and knowledge. It also addresses the challenges of the production of dance history, considering the dynamics of digital technologies for production of images and sounds, as well as inter and transdisciplinary relations that can support these reflections. This call invites authors to submit previously unpublished articles about procedures and research in dance, through approaches that, based on the polysemy of the word history, is inserted in the lines of education, creation, production and diffusion of the language of dance.

    New visions on fantasy

    Jangada Journal #18 – Dec. 2021

    Drawing from the history of Fantasy as a genre, this issue of Jangada Journal, from Viçosa Federal University, invites researchers to submit papers on such a pervading category in contemporary literature. We encourage analysis concerning structural and thematic approaches to the genre. We are also interested, in particular, in papers that focus on works insufficiently studied so far, extrapolating Anglophone backgrounds that have engendered Fantasy, and relating diverse media expressions through which Fantasy was disseminated.

    Seminar - Representation

    Looking at Music. Comparative perspectives

    The seminar series "Looking at Music. Comparative perspectives", organized by the Centre for Comparative Studies (CEC-FLUL), intends to constitute a space for debate and interdisciplinary reflection on music in its different aspects and in a comparative perspective. Studies about music have grown in the last decades and today are part of several departments and scientific fields. The plurality of looks on music and the analysis of its performative and discursive practices, introduced new analytical tools and distinct forms of interpretation. Intermediate studies, on the other hand, invite us to approach music in relation to other media and artistic forms, from visual arts to poetry. The cycle of seminars "Looking at Music. Comparative perspectives" proposes to examine various ways of interpreting music.

    What happened with the LGBTQI+ "rights revolution" in Latin America?

    Nr. 99 - Cahiers des Amériques latines

    Ten years after Argentina's emblematic "same-sex marriage" law, this issue of Cahiers des Amériques Latines examines the notion of a "rights revolution" [Encarnación, 2016] and takes stock of the situation of sexual and gender minorities in the region. Three lines of research seem essential to propose a critical reflection on the reality of sexual and gender minorities and to evaluate the LGBTQI+ "rights revolution" in Latin America.

    Africans and Europeans in southern Senegambia: interactions and transversalities

    Tribute to Jean Boulègue

    Ce colloque, en hommage à l’historien Jean Boulègue, vise à donner suite aux travaux commencés en 2016 dans le premier colloque international sur la présence portugaise à Ziguinchor et, à ce titre, sera présenté comme un espace de débat multi et interdisciplinaire qui vise à revisiter l’histoire, l’héritage culturel portugais et les dynamiques qui la maintiennent vivante. Revisitant les études sur les Luso-africains, permettra d’aborder des questions historiques et actuelles telles que : quelles interactions culturelles et quels mouvements transversaux se sont opérés au fil du temps ? Quel rôle ont joué ces populations dans la vie sociale, économique et politique de la région ? De l’époque de la Libération à nos jours, que reste-t-il des Luso-africains en Sénégambie ? Quel héritage ces populations ont laissé dans le paysage culturel, politique, linguistique et culinaire, entre autres, de la région ?

    The politics and geopolitics of translation

    The multilingual circulation of knowledge and transnational histories of geography

    In the last fifty years, the field of the history of geography has moved from an approach dominated by National Schools to an attention to the circulation of knowledge in its multiple scales. The history of science and of geography have in the last decades incorporated concepts such as transit, networks, mobilities, the transnational, circulation, centre of calculation, spaces of knowledge, geographies of science, spatial mobility of knowledge, geographies of reading and geographies of the book. More recently, a turn has emerged towards considering the dynamics and necessities of decolonizing the history of geography. This work is turning the field of the history of geography into one of the most dynamic areas of the discipline. Yet we suggest that questions of language and translation have remained under-determined in this new field. Translation and writing have not received the same attention as, for instance, departmental histories, sites of museums, laboratories, botanic gardens, and scientific societies, for example. We suggest, therefore, that new perspectives opened up by translation studies can open new windows on the history of geography.

    The Pleasures of Reading: State(s) of the Art

    Le sens commun nous dit que lire un texte littéraire est tout simplement et avant tout de l’ordre du plaisir (Compagnon 1998), sa réhabilitation étant dès lors aussi celle des modalités de la récupération et du renouvellement du « plaisir du texte » (Barthes 1973) et des plaisirs de lire. Même le caractère souvent ludique, ironique et citationnel de la fiction contemporaine, qui met souvent en jeu « (…) un extérieur qui se veut littéraire, il ne s’adresse qu’à des déjà lecteurs » (Demoulin 1997: 11), ne restreint pas ce plaisir, mais le déploie et le complexifie. En outre, dans un contexte amplement marqué par internet et les réseaux sociaux, on observe l’émergence et le développement de nouvelles modalités de lecture liées à l’apparition de nouveaux supports numériques, lesquels favorisent une co-élaboration du texte, et induisent une logique interactive avec de nouvelles formes de sociabilité lectrice fondées sur de nouvelles formes de partage des plaisirs de lire.

    Thinking the Latin American right wings

    IVth International Congress

    The IVth International Congress Thinking the Latin American right wings follows the three previous ones held in France (2014), Argentina (2016) and Brazil (2018), which have permitted the constitution of a community of researchers working on Latin American right-wings. Several specialists from different countries and disciplines have joined in this network, in order to promote projects and studies on this theme, and stimulated the development of new issues related to this political family. The use of various methodologies such as the analysis of political traditions and cultures, representations and imaginaries, identities, networks, sensitivities and memories have made it possible to consolidate a field of study that has become relevant to understand current Latin American political scene.

Dans quelle mesure sa contribution est-elle singulière et innovante ? Afin d’établir un bilan et de tracer des perspectives, le principal objectif du cinquième congrès de la Société internationale d’ergologie (SIE) est de mettre en débats, au cours de trois journées, les travaux qui, en plusieurs lieux du monde, ont fait l’option de s’engager dans cette réflexion, tout en ayant parfois privilégié auparavant d’autres cadres de référence. La diversité des approches constituera un atout essentiel de cette rencontre qui se veut donc pluridisciplinaire.
