    How to talk about the environment? Do we really need new heroes/heralds?

    Does the earth need heroes and heralds to save it, to protect it? From exhibitions with evocative titles to the “small steps” of Nicolas Hulot who resigned as minister on 28 August 2018, on a French national radio station, we are constantly confronted with this crucial problem: how to communicate on the environmental crisis.

    Drawing as testimony: wars and dictatorships in Spain and Latin America

    K@iros journal

    Nous proposons de coordonner un numéro qui cherchera à étudier les spécificités du dessin (tous types de dessin, qu’il s’agisse d’images fixes ou animées, articulées avec du texte ou dépourvues de mots, publiées officiellement ou diffusées de manière illégale dans l’espace public) en tant que moyen d’expression et de communication en contexte de guerre et de dictature en Espagne et en Amérique latine. Nous interrogerons la capacité d'engagement politique, sociale et intime exprimée à travers le dessin et les nuances de ses modalités d’emploi par les régimes autoritaires, leurs opposants ou les différents camps en conflit. Nous nous demanderons dans quelle mesure le dessin peut capter l’instant, du croquis à la caricature en passant par le carnet de voyage, les productions numériques ou le fast-draw, et se faire l’instrument du témoignage ou du reportage.

    Population, Time, Territories

    The latest in the series of CIST conferences, this 5th international conference spotlights the concept of population as a central issue in the debates within territorial sciences. The concept of population, which is central to demography and biology and more marginal for other disciplines, involves the grouping together of individual entities. Depending on the particular approach used, the preferred criterion for aggregation will be the social, territorial, biological, etc., with timescales and observation scales varying accordingly. Linking together population, time and territory in a transdisciplinary and international perspective is the main goal of this conference; beyond the fact that it represents a theoretical and methodological breakthrough, the diversity of the proposed thematic sessions is a clear sign that this trio is at the heart of contemporary issues.

    Population, time, territories (CIST2020)

    Le Ve colloque du Collège international des sciences territoriales (CIST2020) - qui se tiendra du 19 au 21 novembre 2020 sur le campus Condorcet, Paris-Aubervilliers - se propose d’aborder les enjeux théoriques, méthodologiques et pratiques soulevés par la prise en compte simultanée de la population, du temps et des territoires. Ces enjeux portent notamment sur deux défis : (1) l’agrégation des actions individuelles ou des attributs des individus au sein d’une population sur un territoire, et (2) l’intégration de la dimension temporelle dans la dynamique des populations (humaines et/ou animales) et de leurs inscriptions territoriales, à différentes échelles.

    Freedom of Expression in the Digital Age. Between Infox and Artificial Intelligence

    Les nouvelles technologies ne doivent, ni être acceptées avec une naïveté grégaire, ni être rejetées dans une opposition idéologique systématique. Elles sont là, nous les utilisons tous. L’objectif de ce congrès est avec la communauté scientifique internationale d’interroger les pratiques actuelles et leurs conséquences sur la liberté d’expression qui sont au cœur du fonctionnement des démocraties. Ce congrès s’inscrit dans la continuité des travaux que l’Unesco mène depuis plusieurs années sur cette thématique notamment la publication annuelle d’un observatoire sur les Tendances mondiales en matière de liberté d’expression et de développement des médias. Les travaux seront regroupés autour de quatre thématiques : les définitions, les lieux, les personnes et les thèmes transversaux.

    2º Congresso Internacional de Redes Sociais

    2nd Congress International of Social Networks

    Social networks occupy today an unprecedented centrality in developed societies. They are one of the most important components in the structure of social relations between people and organizations, through which they share values, expectations, interests and an immensity of flows that place them at a high level of complexity. Knowing and understanding this complexity, as well as the social networks and the multiplicity of configurations that are inherent to them, is one of the biggest challenges of our times. Today, talking about social networks, puts us on a new paradigm in the social sciences. In the dynamics of social relations, the actors involved in it, develop their interactions driven by diverse logics and strategies of action, putting challenges in their analysis and understanding to social intervenors and the academic community. It is in this context that the 2nd edition of CIReS.

    Frantz Fanon’s Legacy in the Literature and the Arts of the Americas

    One-day conferences

    It turns out to be an epistemological necessity to analyze the scope of Fanon’s thought and style in the cultural and artistic productions of the Americas, not only because of Fanon’s concern for the creation and defense of a national culture but also because of his obvious interest for literature and the care he devoted to the process of writing. The transdisciplinary approach of the two one-day conferences « Frantz Fanon’s Legacy in the Literature and the Arts of the Americas » will encompass all the countries and areas of the Americas and the Caribbean, whatever their languages. We also welcome papers on all kinds of art, ranging from literature to cinema, painting, songs and street art (as in Bogota for instance). We warmly welcome papers that will adopt a comparative approach between different geographical areas. Papers will preferably be written in French, but English and Spanish will be accepted.

    Power and media, media power Insights on the Americas

    Insights on the Americas

    For its 11th issue, RITA proposes to interrogate the links between power and media in the Americas. Several areas of debate can be suggested, although they should not be considered as exclusive. Articles making a critical analysis of official media as well as opposition media, in varied historical and geographical contexts, will of course be welcome. Other articles may deal with the treatment of popular movements by the media. Critical reflections on the relationship between media and economic power are also encouraged. The Thema section can also include analysis of the current diversification of information media by focusing, for instance, on the emergence of “alternative” media on the Internet, or on the power of fake news over the construction of collective representations.

    5th international congress “Sport, doping and society”

    The 5th international congress “Sport, doping and society” is organized by the Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport (AEPSAD) and the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). Under the theme “Think Clean”, there will be presented the results of scientific researches and new methodologies in the field of doping in sport from the specific perspective of Human and Social Sciences. We believe that this initiative will contribute to identify the factors that influence the use of doping substances and methods. From this knowledge we hope to foster future prevention and doping control and to promote ethical behavior in sport.

    The Transatlantic Embrace: Spanish Civil War in America’s Intimate Distance

    "Forma" Revista d'estudis comparatius. Art, literatura, pensament

    Spanish Civil War has been studied under its multiple angles. This can also be said about the literature concerning this topic: novels, poems, and all literary forms generated by this armed conflict (both by Spanish and foreign intellectuals) have been commented by academic criticism from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. However, fewer approaches have set the axis of their critical focus on the importance of the Spanish conflict in America and its decisive relevance as a part of a phenomenon that is also American. This special number of the FORMA journal sets out to give a voice to all types of contributions able to shed a new light on this fundamental aspect of the war, whose causes and consequences are clearly rooted in Spain, but whose horizon overflows the peninsular and continental borders and requires an inevitably transatlantic point of view.

    Ce colloque a plusieurs objectifs. L'objectif principal est d'interroger la représentation des personnes d'ascendance africaine dans les manuels scolaires et de réflechir à la création de manuels scolaires dans lesquels ces populations seraient repésentées à leur juste valeur au sein d'une histoire pluriverselle. La rencontre questionnera toutes les disciplines et tentera d'établir un réel dialogue interdisciplinaire. Enfin, il sera question de la mise en place d'équipes de travail et de réflexion qui se réuniront après le colloque pour continuer le travail ébauché durant la rencontre.

    New images of femininity

    Depuis plus d’un siècle, l’émancipation des femmes, l’essor des mouvements décoloniaux et l’émergence dans les productions culturelles de points de vue portés par des groupes dits minoritaires ont contribué à mettre en place des discours alternatifs. Des réappropriations, des réinterprétations et des subversions ont eu lieu qui, sur un moyen terme, ont participé à infléchir les représentations de genre. De ce fait, les sociétés occidentales contemporaines semblent évoluer vers un changement de paradigme où, si les femmes ont conquis les droits citoyens et exercent par ailleurs dans des secteurs d’activité variés, elles restent soumises à des exclusions non visibles, telles que le « plafond de verre » et une plus grande précarité dans le monde de l’emploi, ou des violences qui leur sont spécifiques (féminicides, harcèlement sexuel, publisexisme, etc.).

    The media and Latin America

    Les XXe et XXIsiècles ont montré l’importance croissante qu’ont les médias dans les sociétés latino-américaines. Les particularités historiques, culturelles et économiques du continent amènent-elles les médias de masse à fonctionner différemment du reste du monde ? L’objectif de ce colloque est de réunir des chercheurs provenant de diverses disciplines autour des médias en Amérique latine et sur l’Amérique latine. En d’autres termes, il s’agira non seulement d’analyser les médias en Amérique latine (propriété, discours, réception), mais aussi d’observer comment les médias du monde regardent l’Amérique latine et ses médias.
