    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.

    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.

    Circulation and decentralisation of arts and literature

    2nd symposium of the Guiana Shield

    Loin des centres politiques, économiques, intellectuels européens et brésiliens, la région des Guyanes est un espace hétérogène composé de pays et de territoires rassemblant des caractéristiques uniques. L'université Fédérale d'Amapá (UNIFAP), et l’université de la Guyane française (UG), parce qu'elles sont présentes dans cette localité, sont capables de rassembler les recherches produites dans et sur la région. En ce sens, la IIe journée d’études du Plateau des Guyanes : Circulations et décentralisation des arts et de la littérature s'inscrit dans la perspective de la réflexion sur le « décentrement » de la connaissance. Cette posture implique de réfléchir au rôle des théories et des pratiques académiques dans un contexte situé hors du centre, sans pour autant nier la relation centre-périphérie.

Ces spécificités, si elles existent, conduisent-elles à renouveler les réflexions sur la notion de frontière ?

    Global Debates in the Digital Humanities

    Where does Digital Humanities take place? DH has been described through various metaphors – “big tent”, “trading zone”, “expanded field”, etc. – lacking perhaps one further step: the idea of digital pluralism linked to new geographical and geopolitical dimension. Our aim in this project is therefore to build a different representation of DH based on cultural, political and ultimately epistemological diversity.

    Una perspectiva conectada de América Latina. La difusión de ideas y de experiencias entre categorías sociales.

    “Estudos sociais”, painel: 12/59, 56° Congresso Internacional de Americanistas

    O eixo temático deste simpósio propõe abordar a dimensão vertical e horizontal da circulação de práticas e conhecimentos entre categorias sociais. Trata-se de articular a inter-relação da perspectiva social com a aproximação espacial das dinâmicas através das quais circulam e às quais estão veiculadas ideias e experiências. A articulação de ambos os aspectos permitiria revelar a complexidade desta relação e refletir sobre os mecanismos teóricos que evidenciam a permeabilidade social entre as práticas, conhecimentos e ideias.

    Refolution: old and new paradigms

    Highlighting the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation allows us to recollect a cultural, intellectual and political revolution that sprang from it. It is indisputable that the Reform gave rise to one of the most decisive events in European history and the world at large, having thoroughly influenced the theological, historical, mental and political perceptions of western culture.

    Thinking and conducting the transformation of work

    The contribution of the ergological approach and the works of Yves Schwartz

    The ergological approach intends to the co-production of knowledge with the aim of transforming work and more generally the social life. As stated by the scientific project of the Workshop, “the ergological approach, in its history and in its issues, is a priori a subject of interest for everyone, each exploring in its own way the intricacies of human life, but also anyone who wants to think about its own activity and that of others, to reconsider the ways of doing and taking action, of opening new perspectives in ways of working, acting and living”. Yet this approach, which is particularly needed nowadays, is insufficiently known and sometimes considered complex. This is the state of play at the origin of this international workshop for which this call for papers is published.

    Streets in every way

    Iberian worlds - Europe, America, Africa, Asia, 19th-21st centuries

    Élément constituant de la ville, la rue a beaucoup évolué au fil des siècles. Assurant la mise en relation des lieux, des fonctions et des groupes sociaux, elle est une forme urbaine qui a une configuration, une architecture, une histoire. Elle a ses logiques, ses dynamiques et ses usages. Ses pratiques et ses représentations sont liées à l’espace urbain dans lequel elle s’inscrit ; elles dépendent aussi de facteurs politiques et socio-économiques. Le « sens » de la rue pouvant donc varier considérablement, il est nécessaire d’aborder celle-ci sous l’angle d’un certain relativisme, en gardant présente à l’esprit la notion d’échelle. Ce colloque envisage la rue dans les mondes ibériques à travers ses dimensions fonctionnelles, socio-économiques, politiques et culturelles, au prisme des lieux et des éléments qui la composent, de ses acteurs et de ses créations. Quatre axes seront privilégiés : la « rue de l’urbaniste » ; Un espace socio-économique : lieu de passage et d’échanges ; Un espace symbolique : « ordre et désordres » ; Un espace de création artistique et langagière

    Writing in higher education, SCRIPTA journal, issue 21, no.43

    Revue SCRIPTA, Vol. 21, Nº 43

    The current challenges concerning writing in university education, regardless of the training stages held by higher education (graduation, specialization, Master's, and PhD), emerge as fertile ground for research, mainly in the context of applied linguistics. Thus, Scripta Journal (PUC Minas, Brasil) proposes this special issue on writing practices in academic and scientific life. On one hand, there is interest in strengthening study perspectives that may bring impacts on didactic devices and pedagogical practices adopted in university education; on the other, this volume aims to expand the possibilities of theoretical/ methodological approaches and intersections in the study of academic and scientific writing.
