    Chican@s studies

    Contributions of articles for electronic journal Verbum et Lingua

    The electronic magazine Verbum et Lingua: Didáctica, lengua y cultura will dedicate its 16th edition (July-December 2020) to the topic of Chican@s studies. Grosso modo, for Ornelas, Ramírez and Padilla (1975), the Chican@s studies have made a great effort to integrate four main constructs: race, class, culture and gender/sexuality. These constructs are present in the work of different artists who express their ideology in order to politicize and lead their community(ies) to change. According to Macias (2018), the Chican@s field of study seeks to make research holistic and multidisciplinary, as well as inclusive, comparative, grounded, up-to-date and critical. At the same time, it seeks to apply the results to social justice, education, as well as to the change of the global Chican@ communities.

    Spanish as a speciality culture-laguage in the arts, literature, history and sociology

    Forts de deux années d’expérience durant lesquelles ont été éprouvés, à l’université Toulouse Jean Jaurès, au sein des enseignements de préparation aux niveaux B1 et B2 d’espagnol, cinq parcours relevant de plusieurs spécialités ALL-SHS, nous souhaitons proposer une première journée d’études sur ce que nous pourrions appeler l’« espagnol pour les humanités », axée sur trois grands domaines : les arts et les lettres ; l’histoire ; la sociologie. L’objectif de cette journée est d’ouvrir une réflexion sur l’espagnol comme langue-culture de spécialité de/pour ces champs de connaissance et de formation, dans une ambition épistémologique et pédagogique, depuis une perspective plurielle qui articule préoccupations sociolinguistiques, dynamiques pluridisciplinaires et pratiques professionnelles.

    Vine, wine and education from the 18th century to today

    The vine, the wine and the education are themes which appear distant and which nevertheless can be gathered around the training program and the places of apprenticeship (high schools wine, universities, schools of oenology ...) and school knowledge through disciplines such as geography, biology, art ...; This does not prevent the School from also fighting against addictions, alcoholism and its excesses. It must be said that vine and wine have always brought people together, constituting a real cultural heritage spread all over the world, wine being then a cultural and societal cultural reference. Thus, this theme could be studied around three main axes by involving several disciplines from the Humanities and Social Sciences but also Sciences and literary and artistic disciplines.

    Cinema, power and freedom in Latin America

    Partant de l’idée selon laquelle le pouvoir est un phénomène spécifiquement humain, régi essentiellement par la liberté et porteur de sens uniquement à partir du moment où une conscience (individuelle, collective, anonyme) agit, décide et dispose de lui pour le diriger vers des fins déterminées (Romano Guardini, 1963), nous adressons à la communauté des chercheurs ainsi qu’aux cinéastes intéressés le présent appel à participer, dans une perspective interdisciplinaire, au colloque Cinéma, pouvoirs et libertés en Amérique latine. Ce colloque entend interroger la manière dont la production cinématographique et audiovisuelle de l’Amérique latine s’approprie la réalité du pouvoir dans ses diverses dimensions (politique, sociale, de genre, idéologique, subjective, anonyme, etc.) ainsi que dans ses interactions avec des pratiques de liberté (critique, résistances, contestation, détournement, re-signification, etc.).

    Work and cooperation

    Laboreal Dossier

    If human beings are the result of a historical process and not the product of a pre-established plan, it is important to emphasize the significance of cooperative actions for their preservation throughout this process. A path in which work – as a constitutive element of our species – plays a decisive role in these actions. How has cooperation been taking place in formal and informal work activities? How have the current modes of management and their evaluation and training systems contributed to the construction or weakening of cooperative acts at work? What are the requirements to build cooperation?

    Thinking and conducting the transformation of work

    The contribution of the ergological approach and the works of Yves Schwartz

    The ergological approach intends to the co-production of knowledge with the aim of transforming work and more generally the social life. As stated by the scientific project of the Workshop, “the ergological approach, in its history and in its issues, is a priori a subject of interest for everyone, each exploring in its own way the intricacies of human life, but also anyone who wants to think about its own activity and that of others, to reconsider the ways of doing and taking action, of opening new perspectives in ways of working, acting and living”. Yet this approach, which is particularly needed nowadays, is insufficiently known and sometimes considered complex. This is the state of play at the origin of this international workshop for which this call for papers is published.

    Births in Latin America

    Changes in practices and social norms

    Don de dieu accepté sans planification par une large majorité, la naissance d’un enfant est devenue un événement moins fréquent dans la vie des latino-américain-e-s. Cette transition démographique de la fécondité s’est accompagnée d’une médicalisation croissante de la vie reproductive : planification familiale et contraception, suivi des grossesses et des accouchements, aide à la conception. Les évolutions des comportements, des normes sociales et biomédicales qui les fondent, ainsi que celles des politiques sociales, familiales, démographiques, entraînent un renouvellement des problématiques sociétales et de recherche liées à la naissance d’un enfant et à la fécondité.

    Conference, symposium - Representation

    Comics and sport

    During the final talks of the fruitful international conference named “body languages in comics” set up by the junior drawn sciences laboratory of the Ecole normale supérieure (ENS) in Lyon on 8th and 9th October 2014, the idea to carry on, in a more precise way, the numerous debates on the occasion of a later scientific event was mentioned. In light of this, the C3S laboratory (“culture, sport, health and society”) of the University of Bourgogne/Franche-Comté organises holding an international symposium in order to study how sport is depicted in comics. Researchers in the C3S laboratory dedicate their work to sport sciences with a theoretical and epistemological commitment marked by interdisciplinarity. According to this stance, the international conference is open to various contributions allowing to understand the representations (whether they be historical, sociological, anthropological, literary, semiotic, psychological…etc…) of sport in comics.

    Work and creativity

    Travailler n’est pas exécuter. Ce hiatus entre ce qui est défini comme étant à faire et ce qui est fait conduit à explorer l’épaisseur du travail. On y découvre l’invention de manières de faire qui permettent de singulariser l’activité, la mobilisation et le détournement de moyens visant à dépasser les obstacles rencontrés… Arts de faire, métis, bricolage, intelligence pratique, renormalisation, stylisation... Autant de conceptualisations de la puissance inventive engagée dans le travail vivant.

    La disparition d’Hugo Chávez en 2013, la séquence électorale qui a suivi et les récents événements politiques mettent en évidence les processus de transformation de la société et du système politique vénézuéliens et, par conséquent, la nécessité, pour les chercheurs, de s’interroger à leur sujet. Au-delà de l’actualité, ces processus trouvent leurs racines dans l’histoire du pays, mais également dans ses relations avec le reste du monde. Le groupe d’études interdisciplinaire sur le Venezuela (GEIVEN) organise sa quatrième journée d’études internationale, le vendredi 5 décembre 2014, à Paris.
