    Social and economic uses of creole languages

    17th International Colloquium of Creole Studies (CIEC)

    Who can truly contest the vitality of Creole languages? They are indeed young languages, born of the encounter between peoples of different civilisations, carriers of idiosyncratic visions of the world. In addition, they were effectively developed in different regions, but achieved similar results. Questioning the vitality of creole languages thus takes on its full meaning. How do the uses of creoles materialise in among the different social spaces of creolophone territories? Outside of the “classic” circuits of the language (schools, media, churches, etc.), do economic actors use language as a tool of economic market development? Our colloquium seeks to explore this key question of the social and economic uses of Creoles, their commoditisation in diverse domains.

    Reconsidérer les savoirs, perspectives plurielles : relecture, réécriture

    Selon Michel Foucault, l’histoire est un outil de pouvoir qui façonne notre compréhension du monde et influence les systèmes de domination à travers le traitement sélectif des informations. Les contre-savoirs et les contestations de l’histoire officielle révèlent la nécessité de perspectives critiques et alternatives, qui incitent à reconsidérer les fondements du savoir par le prisme d’analyses pluridisciplinaires, la remise en question des méthodologies, l’exploration de nouvelles sources. Ce colloque de jeunes chercheures et chercheuses vise à explorer les nouvelles perspectives offertes par les pratiques littéraires et artistiques dans cette entreprise de réévaluation des savoirs.

    Haitian Oraliture: Identity(ies), Structure(s), Memory(ies) and Representations through the Prism of Human and Social Sciences

    In tribute to Maurice Sixto on the occasion of the centenary of his birth

    This conference is an opportunity to pay tribute to Maurice Sixto, for his significant lodyans. The year 2019 is indeed the centenary of birth of this master of the spoken word, born in May 1919, and the 35thanniversary of his passing, which occurred in May 1984. The contemporaneous legacy of Maurice Sixto encompasses various categories of lodyanseurs, among whom former cultural colleagues, talented impersonators, original interpreters and contemporaneous storytellers who, directly or indirectly, recognize themselves through the influence of the master. This event will be the occasion to discuss the multidimensional, psycho-sociological, didactic and aesthetic value of Sixto’s work.
