    Resonance: The Creative Thrust of “Deep Zouk”

    Si le premier colloque international sur le Zouk, en 2019, a traité des trajectoires, des imaginaires et perspectives suivant le concept lacanien d’« hainamoration », ce deuxième colloque s’articule autour du concept chamoisélien de « résonance » pour tenter d'expliciter le processus de création de la musique zouk depuis ses fonts baptismaux. Qu'est-ce qui conditionne l’imaginaire créatif de nos démiurges du zouk et leur permet d’appréhender le monde ? Ce questionnement se justifie par le fait que beaucoup de musiciens et artistes-chanteurs-interprètes de nos régions, s’ils suivent des formations musicales conventionnelles, il n’en demeure pas moins que pour créer dans la Caraïbe, leurs lignes créatrices s'ancrent authentiquement dans le principe de la « résonance » (conte-danse-rythme), les sources vives des énergies cosmiques, de la vibration du tambour. Ce colloque permettra d’entrer dans les arcanes de la création, de pister et de suivre la trace de certains artistes rompus à l’exercice pour tenter de définir des traits définitoires de ce processus de création du « Deep zouk ».

    Réseaux de correspondances dans les mondes ibériques et ibéro-américains (XVIII-XIX-XXe siècles)

    Si l’écriture épistolaire n’est pas une invention du XVIIIe siècle, ce procédé de communication interpersonnelle et intellectuelle, utilisé aussi bien dans la vie réelle que dans la fiction, connaît un nouvel essor au siècle des Lumières. L’étude des correspondances suppose par ailleurs que l’on s’intéresse à la notion de réseaux, car l’échange et la circulation des lettres induit des dynamiques de constitution de réseaux interpersonnels (épistolaires au premier chef, mais qui sont aussi des réseaux familiaux, commerciaux, politiques, diplomatiques, etc). De plus, avec le développement des humanités numériques, on assiste à un renouvellement des méthodes d’analyse qui apportent une dimension novatrice à l’étude de corpus de correspondances. Il s’agira donc, lors de ce congrès, d’aborder la question des réseaux de correspondances dans une perspective élargie, en étendant l’étude aux espaces ibériques et ibéro-américains, et dans une chronologie allant du XVIIIe au XXe siècles.

    History and Memory: Epistemological Reinterpretation of Africa's Past in a Post-Colonial Context

    “Práticas da História” journal

    This special issue of Práticas da História is interested in receiving contributions, referring to colonial and post-colonial African contexts. It is important to better understand what is happening in different African countries, at the level of the Academy but also in other spaces where social memory and history confront each other, and how political, ideological, economic and linguistic factors interfere in those situations. In the case of the former Portuguese colonies, which will soon celebrate 50 years of independence, there are additional factors, such as the later end of colonial rule and the delay in historiography about Africa that occurred until recent decades, both in Portugal and in Brazil.

    Pan-Africanisms, (Post-)Slavery and Race

    « Esclavages et Post-Esclavages / Slaveries and Post-Slaveries » Journal

    This issue of Slaveries & Post-Slaveries examines the repercussions of the transatlantic matrix of race on post-slavery societies. Particular attention will be paid to societies on the African continent, as the racial logics operating within them have rarely been studied. We understand racial logics as the assumption that supposed physical and cultural differences between groups are “inherited” from one generation to the next.

    From limits to margins. Periphery(s) in stories and imaginarie Latin American contemporaries

    « Amerika », numéro 28

    This number attempts to define what the margins and peripheries are today in the imaginaries, stories, human sciences and cultural fields of the Americas. If the twentieth century saw, in most countries of Latin America, as it was about defining a cultural norm (which or not took over from the colonial period, whether or not integrating elements of pre-Hispanic history), also appeared increasingly affirmed countercultures and peripheral cultures. With digitalization, which occurred at the beginning of our century, a strong acceleration of the movement was noted. It is then worth asking what a peripheral/marginal culture may be, as well as looking for a way to define it. Another primary issue is knowing how (and by whom) these currents can be represented. In a somewhat binary conception of social, geographic and creative space, one would obviously have to oppose the notions of normativity and centrality to the margins.

    La forêt dans les mondes ibériques et ibéro-américains

    La Société française des hispanistes et ibéro-américanistes célèbrera son XLI congrès du 5 au 8 juin 2024 à l’université de Limoges. Il aura pour thématique « la forêt dans les mondes ibériques et ibéro-américains ». S’adressant prioritairement aux spécialistes de l’aire ibérique et ibéro-américaine, ce congrès se veut pourtant aussi résolument ouvert à d’autres approches autour de la thématique. Ainsi, si les études littéraires et artistiques, linguistiques et historiennes semblent s’imposer, les approches sociologiques, géographiques, anthropologiques, philosophiques seront également les bienvenues dès lors qu’elles portent sur le thème et l’aire culturelle ibérique et ibéro-américaine.

    Women on stage: From the backstage to the to limelight

    Women in theatre until the 19th century

    Since its origin, the History of Theatre has been built by male names. However, it is unthinkable that women have not also had an important role in this construction. Besides existing as characters, their contributions as performers, playwrights, composers, entrepreneurs, patrons, scenographers or costume designers, among a broad range of other functions, were fundamental to the development of the theatrical practice. This conference aims to recover the place of women in theatre since its origin until the 19th century, covering a wide variety of topics, which have women at their centre, either as the focus of a show or as marginal, as star or tertiary figure, as part of the audience or as producer of the cultural object. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive and transdisciplinary debate in order to rediscover the place of women in theatre in a global and historical approach.

    Mapping the Other

    In Western space, mapping the Other is not a prescriptive notion to assign ossified identities. Rather, it is about questioning the link between these intersectional identities of otherness and the specificities of the various Western spaces. In other words, it invites a reconsideration of how the Others autonomously define themselves in the dominant and marginal spaces of the “normative order” of hegemonic societies, and how they integrate them to make them theirs—therefore challenging the systems of oppression implemented.

    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.

    Littérature et cinéma : allers-retours

    La recherche concernant les relations entre le cinéma et la littérature s’est longtemps concentrée sur la question de l’adaptation de la littérature au cinéma, une pratique relativement constante dans l’histoire de l’adaptation et sur laquelle se sont édifiées les Adaptation Studies. Ce colloque vise à prolonger la réflexion menée ces dernières années, pour mieux comprendre l’évolution des relations entre cinéma et littérature, au sein d’un champ de plus en plus complexe, où coexistent et se concurrencent une profusion de moyens de communication inter/transmédiaux et de supports pour les dispositifs artistiques et les systèmes de diffusion culturelle, au-delà de l’édition ou du cinéma.

    Revolution and Cinema: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Carnation Revolution

    The beginning of the 21st century has been marked by the deepening of social inequalities, the anachronism of authoritarian regimes and the political exhaustion of democratic systems. It should invite us to analyze the traces, myths, outbursts, failures, and eventual successes of past revolutions so we can attain a better apprehension of the links between cinema, art, and politics. This special section aims to contribute to the constitution of a “cine-geography” (Gray and Eshun 2011, 1) of the forms of “making” cinema and revolution. The aim is to update historical and aesthetic analyses that address the encounter between cinema and revolution.

    At a time when there will be multiple proposals for perspectives on the fiftieth anniversary of April 25, 1974, a revolution marked by a euphoria that surpassed the day before and that surprised the day after, in an unlocking of the future, we suggest a look at the threshold of several disciplines in this cross-sectional issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal, between the social and human sciences, the arts, literature and other forms of intervention in reality, through four areas.

    Missionary strategies and practices, slavery and forced labour (early 19th-mid 20th century)

    Another discussion on the institutional position of the churches in relation to slavery will be resolutely avoided. What will be analysed is the concrete confrontation —or cohabitation— with slavery. What did missionaries know about their slave environment? How did they learn about it? How did they take a stand? How did they act–or not? Same questions as far as indentured labour and the colonial forms of forced labour were concerned. Were there confrontations, mediations and misunderstandings?

    Fictions of terror in the Southern Cone and Brazil: recent representations

    Amerika n°26

    This issue of Amerika will explore Southern Cone’s and Brazil’s horrific and terrific recent literature. In Latin America, violence is ubiquitous producing fear and anguish, and these emotions can be contagious. Fear and anguish are intrinsically related to terror, and they can take place both at a collective level and at an individual level. Many authors use terror to deal with subjects such as politics, family, violence, poverty, public security, social radicalization, the body and the feminine condition.

    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.

    Gender in Slave and Post-Emancipation Societies in Global Contexts

    « Esclavages et Post-Esclavages / Slaveries and Post-Slaveries » Journal

    The last two decades have witnessed an uptick in the production of scholarly literature concerning enslaved, emancipated, and free women in slave societies in the Atlantic World. More recently, scholars have also begun to examine femininity and masculinity, nonbinary gender expression, nonnormative sexualities, and the family as lenses through which to understand the making and maintaining of those societies. In this special issue of Esclavages & Post-Esclavages / Slaveries & Post-Slaveries, the editors seek to build on and extend this work by focusing on gender, as an analytical frame and category, in slave and post-emancipation societies beyond and/or in comparison with the Atlantic basin. We aim to understand the influence of Atlantic world scholarship on global slave studies, while also attending to contextual distinctions outside of the Atlantic context.
