    Territoires, populations et covid-19

    Ce colloque s’inscrit dans le cadre du projet lauréat de l’appel lancé par la collectivité territoriale de Guyane (TEPCOV) sur les réponses apportées par les sciences humaines et sociales à la crise sanitaire due au covid-19. L’organisation de cette manifestation scientifique vise à restituer les travaux menés au cours de ces deux dernières années mais également à confronter les résultats obtenus à ceux d’autres chercheurs impliqués sur des thématiques similaires ailleurs dans le monde. Nous vous invitons à proposer des communications qui ont pour but d’enrichir les réflexions en sciences humaines et sociales sur le covid-19 en particulier celles axées sur une vision territorialisée de la pandémie. En effet, le projet TEPCOV s’appuie sur l’idée que les territoires, conçus comme des espaces délimités et appropriés par des individus ou par une communauté, ne sont pas égaux face au risque de propagation d’un virus.

    Afro Literature Conference

    Cuando decidimos abordar el estudio de la “literatura africana”, nos enfrentamos a una serie de problemas, en tanto campo complejo de tensiones, de núcleos constitutivos, de perspectivas, inherentes a toda etiqueta formada por la palabra literatura y un gentilicio. Una dificultad no menor la encontramos en los planes de estudios de las carreras de Letras en Argentina cuyo “patrón cognitivo” (Quijano 2017) aún persiste dentro de los rasgos de un patrón de poder fundado en la colonialidad: el centro no ha sido del todo desplazado, para decirlo con wa Thiong’o (2014).  El eurocentrismo académico en nuestro país perdura en el escaso interés que el pensamiento africano y afrodiaspórico ocupa en las carreras de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales, con destacadas excepciones siempre individuales o colectivas pero rara vez institucionale.

    Rhythm and Art

    Rhythm is a central element in the creation of meaning in art, and its configuration is such that it requires a multi, inter and transdisciplinary approach. The difference of materials, procedures and events masks the resemblance of rhythmic phenomena that are similar in different arts and hides their identity or their homology. In the work of some scholars, the concepts do not seem to belong to a particular artistic discipline, being rather characteristic of the rhythmic phenomenon. The objective of this conference is to provide an instance for exchanging knowledge, concerns and aspirations for those who have been devoting themselves to the study of rhythm and artistic creation on the subject.

    Sédimentation : vers une archéologie du texte et de l'image

    XIIIe congrès international de l’« International association of word and image studies » (IAWIS) / Association international pour l’étude des rapports entre texte et image (AIERTI)

    The 13th International Conference of the International Word and Image Association (IAWIS) will take place between 28 August and 01 September 2023 in hybrid mode at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Next year's conference will focus on the concept of sedimentation in word-image studies. The term, in its literal and metaphorical sense, will allow us to examine historical, theoretical and thematic issues that cross cultural, literary and artistic productions, and to consider the tensions, articulations, oscillations that intertwine the word and the image.

    Le remploi, l’appropriation, la répétition : transferts entre la littérature, le théâtre et le cinéma

    Reutilização, apropriação, repetição: transferências entre a literatura, o teatro e cinema

    Les déplacements, les appropriations et les hybridations, enfin, les recyclages et les remplois, constituent des traits distinctifs d’une partie importante des productions culturelles, au moins dès le début du XXIe siècle. Dans la littérature comme dans le cinéma, on perçoit des pratiques et procédés qui visent à réélaborer, remployer, modifier, transcrire, arranger par la répétition. Nous invitons les chercheuses et chercheurs à proposer des communications en privilégiant la répétition comme axe de réflexion autour des pratiques médiatiques entre littérature, cinéma et théâtre.

    Dialogues in Antiquity: Archetypes for a Contemporary World

    Xth Conference on Classical Philology in honorem Giselle von der Walde

    The expressive wealth of dialogue presents itself in numerous artistic and intellectual ways. The encounters between emotional and aesthetic resources, pedagogical and didactic purposes, as well as between claims of objectivity and scientific rigor, are fertile ground for the transdisciplinary inquiry characteristic of classical studies. This invites a diversity and multiplicity of perspectives for contributions in relation to ancient authors and their works. Investigating the history of dialogue since Antiquity also allows us to consider it as an archetype for the exchange of opinions and ideas. This is suitable for dealing with current problems that increasingly require the willingness to negotiate and rethink ideas and convictions, empathize with the feelings of others, and build agreements based on the examination of opposing arguments and points of view.

    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.

    Challenges, Trends and Research: Audiovisual Screenwriting

    From connoisseurs, amateurs, consecrated authors, curious people, to people interested in professionalizing, we have seen the growing interest in Screenplay Writing for Cinema and Audiovisual products, in the last twenty years, in Brazil. Initially, slowly, but then at an exponential pace as a result of market changes, the new perspectives provided by technologies, the possibilities for new expressive and participative experiences, the diversification of distribution formats and platforms and, mainly, the easy access to information on the topic that has fueled this trend. In the professional aspect, the consolidation of ABRA, Brazilian Screenwriters Authors Association - in 2017, resulting from the merger of two previous associations, elevated the professional screenwriter from a previously unstable status and highlighted him towards his autonomy.

    With the aim of encouraging the exchange of ideas, experiences, progress and proposals, the Journal Forma y Funcion invites classicists to submit full research articles dealing with the teaching and learning of classical languages.

    Figurations and Interlocutions: The Feminine Question in Walter Benjamin’s Oeuvre

    Artefilosofia Journal

    Even though he was a philosopher, not a poet, Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) thought poetically, says Hannah Arendt about his friend and life-long correspondent. In his oeuvre, the feminine appears through recurrent images whose meaning may vary according to the context, in different figurations and fictions. In agreement with these fictional figurations, one of his first essays presents the question of what a feminine culture or a feminine language would be (Metaphysik der Jugend, GS, II, I, 1977).

    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.

    The Francophone press in the Americas

    La culture et la langue françaises ont joué un rôle important dans le monde, tout particulièrement dans la presse du XIXe siècle, phénomène qui s’étend jusqu’au milieu du XXe siècle et s’est développée grâce à l’expansion des moyens techniques de production et de communication, permettant la circulation des modèles de presse et des sujets traités, ainsi que la constitution d’imaginaires mondialisés. Ce congrès est ainsi consacré à rassembler des chercheurs dédiés à l’étude de la presse périodique francophone dans les Amériques du XIXe et début du XXe siècle, comme journaux, revues et almanachs.
