    Towards a plurilingual curriculum : fostering pluricultural communication in the digital age

    This international conference is part of a multidisciplinary approach to languages and cultures in applied linguistics (didactique des langues), drawing in particular on language sciences, sociolinguistics, education sciences, political sciences and info-com. Participants are invited to (re)think about language teaching/learning, whether formal or informal, as an objective of intercultural communication. The plurilingual and pluricultural perspective calls for a fundamental reconsideration of the language and culture curriculum

    Digital democracy: promises and illusions

    A stable and peaceful society is based on a solid and strong democracy. The democratic model is the future of any society that respects human rights. New information and communication technologies and the still poorly regulated advances in Artificial Intelligence have impacted not only all human activity, but have also contributed to reshaping the relationship with politics, citizen participation, political communication and politics. national and international. Digital democracy (or electronic, cyber, digital) is a political-social phenomenon which began to emerge around fifteen years ago in very diverse national contexts. Today, it is a tool that is used mainly for electoral expression intended for a fairly small number of citizens. The purpose of this international conference is to question the phenomenon of electronic democracy not only from an instrumental point of view (e-voting tool), but to question the conditions of possibility and possible limits.

    Ideological discourse and advertising discourse in the media and the universities

    Can we distinguish in the current discourses of the media and universities their roles in our societies? This distinction is important because it refers to the knowledge that journalists and professors put forward through their communications and actions. Do they participate objectively developing the autonomous and enlightened thinking of the citizens of today and tomorrow by democratically supporting their quest for understanding? Or have they become the spokesmen of a single, and therefore partial and partial, way of thinking? What is its legitimacy and relevance when it organizes the information transmitted according to ideological interests, such as a promotional or advertising campaign?

    Alternative Mediatization of Politics: Self-Media, Web TV, and Opinion Channels

    Altermédiatisation du politique : self-médias, Web TV et chaînes d’opinion

    The forthcoming issue of the Cahiers Protagoras invites authors to delve into the mechanisms by which the (ideological) monopoly of information is circumvented and challenged. Another objective is to comprehend the mediagenic strategies deployed by political actors — mediagénie, defining their inclination to “achieve their full potential by choosing the media partner that suits them best” (Marion, 1997). Evaluating the mediativity [médiativité] of these new political communication mechanisms (each medium possessing a 'specific imaginary') is another potential area for analysis. Finally, an examination of moderation and regulation practices specific to these emerging media spaces is anticipated.

    Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW)

    The first-ever International Conference on Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW), held in Abu Dhabi in 2019, organized to spark off a series of conferences on the subject. Four years later, and following a global epidemic, it is time to reassemble for exploring and move ahead with the practises, experiences, and challenges of digital archiving in the Arab World. The inaugural colloquium/conference examined the issues of data preservation in the Arab world and eventually resulted in a publication release that continues to serve as a reference for researching the subject today (Bayoumi & Oliveau, 2020). At DAAW|2024, we aspire to address it through the more focused standpoint of the digital management and preservation of data and documents, without foregoing a broader reflection, concerning both historical and future documents and data in danger whether physical or natively digital.

    The public use of subordinate writings in the early modern and modern periods

    We invite contributions dedicated to the dynamics of the re-signification of subaltern writings in public space in the early modern and modern period. Ordinary writings produced by subaltern actors (popular classes, men and women, childhood) in the transition from the private to the public sphere should therefore be investigated with particular attention to the spaces used, the practices adopted, the strategies of visibility (or obscuration) chosen, the appropriations by civil society, the policies of preservation of popular memory and the pedagogical- didactic use of writings.

    Moguls, Go-betweens and Smugglers: Film Distributors and their Networks during the Twentieth Century

    This workshop aims at revisiting the history of film importers/exporters and distributors throughout the 20th century by examining the social inscription of their trade. Moguls, go-betweens and/or smugglers, film traders were main actors in determining the value of films, building film markets, bringing out audiences by giving them (or not) access to the films. Yet, the history of cinema has long ignored the figure of the distributor, too bland to obscure the ethereal figure of the author, too close to the limelight to interest those, less numerous, researching “those wonderful people out there in the dark,” the audience.

    Languages, literatures and peace building

    Guaranteeing a peaceful climate in a restricted or relatively large space is a challenge, which is why it is almost impossible to list in an exhaustive manner the mechanisms likely to maintain harmony between humans and/or between Nations, as these means are sometimes beyond suspicion. At the same time, it would be tedious to want to list the factors likely to break the tranquility, the state of cohesion, and to generate misunderstandings, conflicts of various kinds and, finally, war. So, how can linguistics and linguistic dynamics (in all forms and manifestations, including literature) be at the origin of social/interhuman, inter-intra-community, inter-State, inter-religious tensions...? And, how could they resolve the said crises and conflict situations? Which linguistic dynamics emerge from these? This is the challenge of this project.

    Conflictualité chileno-mapuche entre deux siècles

    Desde una perspectiva de largo plazo, las relaciones entre el pueblo mapuche y la sociedad chilena evidencian frecuentemente tintes de conflictividad. Ya sea desde un punto de vista político, territorial o económico, a menudo estallan crisis que tensionan, cuando no oponen, a ambas identidades tanto discursiva como factualmente. Este seminario recorre dos de esos momentos críticos: por un lado la Guerra de Pacificación (1862-1883), que consagra la anexión del país mapuche por parte del Estado chileno, y por otro, la emergencia del discurso plurinacional durante el presente año 2022 que desemboca en el rechazo de la llamada constitución indigenista.

    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.

    The Book in Its Time: Places, Materials, Forms and Techniques

    « Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal », Number 20

    The Book is a phenomenon that combines the fascination of its manifestations of yesteryear to the current debates and practices that announce future paths and dilemmas. We propose in this call an exercise that recovers the procedures and techniques that gained body to welcome another invention, that of writing, which inscribes the history of copyists, printing typographers who moved between cities and countries in search of business, that of their emergence in monasteries, courts, universities, binder workshops and typographies, that of street vendors and that of the production and marketing circuits.
