    Les outre-mers français face aux risques : gestion, acceptabilité sociale et conflictualité

    Revue « EchoGéo »

    Les onze territoires habités sur les trois océans qui constituent les outre-mers français, se caractérisent par une exposition à des aléas dont les effets peuvent être particulièrement dévastateurs. Les événements exceptionnels engendrent des crises et révèlent rapidement les défaillances des systèmes d’urgence notamment sanitaire. Une nouvelle façon d’appréhender les risques par la vulnérabilité et l’exposition des enjeux a conforté une logique institutionnelle, mais celle-ci se heurte, bien qu’en apparence plus participative, à l’opposition des habitants des espaces ultramarins. L’objectif de ce dossier de la revue Echogéo est précisément de mettre au centre de l’analyse le rapport des habitants ultramarins avec les risques auxquels ils sont confrontés et à leur gestion.

    Thinking cityness from East African cities

    “EchoGeo” – N° 67 (january-march 2024)

    This issue of EchoGeo seeks to explore East Africa’s contribution to the debate on cityness and city life in urban studies. This contribution has been growing over the past ten years, reflecting the accelerated urbanization of this part of the continent. Despite heterogeneous situations, the depth of the social transformations brought about by the urban transition has stirred major debates on city life and cityness in this part of Africa, once regarded as a bastion of African rurality. This initially led to the emergence of a scientific dialogue between East African cities themselves. However, this conversation has now opened up beyond this sub-region: researchers who work in East Africa have now engaged in broader international debates about city life, converse with urban scholars from other parts of the world, and are involved in comparative research projects that cross-cut regional divides (Rizzo and Atzeni, 2020).

    L’emprise de la communication

    The Grip of Communication

    Pour ses dix ans d’existence, la revue Politiques de communication organise un colloque international dont l’ambition est de proposer une réflexion d’ensemble sur « l’emprise de la communication » dans la structuration des espaces sociaux contemporains. Il propose un bilan des travaux sur l’évolution des pratiques et représentations sociales de la communication et leurs implications organisationnelles. Il propose également d’interroger les rapports sociaux de domination - de genre, de classe, de « race », de génération et autres - dont la communication est un outil et parfois un révélateur.

    The French aeronautical industries and the world: international cooperation and internationalisation strategies from the Liberation to the 1980s

    This study day proposes to address several themes linked together by the relations that the French aeronautical industries have established and maintained with various countries and foreign aeronautical firms in a context of recovery, restructuring and development of this French industry. It is intended to highlight international industrial cooperation, its creation and implementation processes as well as the actors involved and their roles in these original partnerships. The aim of this study session is also to reveal the evolution of these forms of collective production and the specialisation of the actors involved during the period under consideration. Finally, it tends to show that far from being limited to industrial cooperation, the global ambition of French aeronautical firms also developed without foreign aid thanks to internationalisation strategies that evolved during the said period.

    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.

    « Dans l’espace, personne ne vous entend crier, ou peut-être bien que si »

    “In space no one can hear you scream, or can they?”

    « Dans l’espace personne ne vous entend crier », l’accroche publicitaire, devenue iconique, du film Alien de Ridley Scott souligne le rôle prépondérant joué par les « voix, sons, bruits, silences » en science-fiction. Pour Nis Gron, « William Whittington a démontré combien Alien (1979) a été un tremplin essentiel qui a montré l’importance et a permis le développement de la bande sonore, notamment dans l’utilisation expressionniste des effets sonores, des sons ambiants et des bruitages dans les films de science-fiction ». La science-fiction joue avec les complexités et les contradictions des « sons et silences » à travers les bandes sonores et au sein des intrigues.

    Refugees in the world: history and emergency

    Il s’agit de retracer l’émergence de la notion de réfugié au XXe siècle, l’évolution historique de leur nombre et de leur situation dans le monde, avec un pic au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, et un second pic de nos jours, notamment depuis 2015, avec aujourd’hui un chiffre de 80 millions de réfugiés. L’approche sera aussi juridique et humanitaire, avec des interventions de spécialistes et de responsables associatifs. La soirée d’études analysera la crise de l’accueil des réfugiés, en Europe et dans le monde, et ces réflexions s’inscrivent à la fois dans le champ de l’histoire, de la géographie, de la sociologie, de la science politique, des relations internationales, et du droit international.

    Anthropology and photography

    “Civilisations” journal (vol. 72, 2023)

    We are looking for contributions that explore the technical, methodological, social, political, scientific and ethical aspects arising from the use of photography in anthropological research, as well as reflections on the questions raised by the “persistence of images” (Le Gall 2014) that go beyond the contexts of academic production. This issue seeks to explore the relation between the anthropological desire to understand humankind, and the practice of photography and will feature articles focusing on the photographic process from four different angles, which may be interpreted quite broadly: 1-The anthropologist-photographer, 2-The anthropologist and photographies, 3-Photographic anthropology, 4-Anthropology in photographs.

    « Heureux ceux qui croient sans avoir vu »

    Pouvoirs et limites, les paradoxes du sensible dans l’appréhension chrétienne du divin entre les XVe et XVIIe siècles

    In mobilizing an intermedial as well as interdisciplinary approach, the aim of these two days is to reflect together on the various solutions (philosophical, material, legal, theological, devotional, etc.) implemented by modern Christianity in order to resolve an age-old paradox: how to reconcile the nature of human perception, which is above all sensory, with that of the object it is trying to perceive, and whose divine nature is precisely infinite, unattainable and elusive ?

    Museology and Film: Contemporary Perspectives

    Depuis une trentaine d’années, la question des relations entre cinéma et musées est régulièrement posée au sein du monde académique. Afin d’explorer les différentes approches théoriques et analytiques au prisme desquelles ces relations peuvent être étudiées, ce numéro se structurera autour de trois axes : l’histoire des musées et des expositions de cinéma (1), les formes contemporaines de l’exposition de ce dernier (2), l’analyse de la muséalité grâce aux fictions filmiques (3). Dans leurs propositions, les auteurs sont encouragés à mettre en lumière de nouveaux corpus, en traitant des multiples aspects du phénomène muséal, de films rarement abordés ou d’aires géographiques moins traitées dans la bibliographie spécifique au thème du numéro.

    The Sociology of Contemporary Art

    Appel à contribution de la revue Marges (n°38)

    Peut-être plus que d’autres époques de l’histoire des arts plastiques, l’art contemporain semble appeler l’analyse sociologique. De fait, les dernières années ont vu se multiplier les recherches sur l’art moderne et contemporain inspirées par les méthodes de la sociologie de l’art ou de l’histoire sociale de l’art. Mais cette orientation est encore loin d’être courante, dans une discipline, l’histoire de l’art, qui a une longue tradition de défiance vis-à-vis des sciences sociales. Réciproquement, les sociologues sont relativement peu nombreux à s’aventurer sur le terrain de l’art contemporain. Cette journée d’étude entend donc encourager le développement d’une spécialité encore en devenir et les confrontations de points de vue entre disciplines et courants théoriques.

    Protestant Revival Movements in the Francophone World (Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Pacific)

    Origins, Currents, Developments and Diversification from the Nineteenth Century to the Present

    This Congress, intends to broaden that research to include, in addition to Europe, Francophone Africa and Madagascar, Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific. From the beginning of the nineteenth century, this geographical and linguistic area (like others) has been to the benefit of the deployment of revival movements through mission. These movements have generated new Christendoms and ecclesial communities, many of which have emancipated themselves from inherited/exported models. Awakenings have taken specific forms and diversified. Persons and groups within traditional cultures and religions have shaped new antitheses (rupture) and/or syntheses (continuity). These Réveil/Revival influenced forms and visions have enriched the world’s religious heritage. This conference will give attention to the origins, currents, development, and diversification of the Réveil/Revival movements/networks/traditions from the Nineteenth Century to the Present, focusing on the Francophone world.

    Brazil, an independent country ?

    Rethinking “dependency theory” 200 years after 1822

    On the occasion of the bicentennial of Brazil’s proclamation of independence (September 7,1822), this conference examines the paradigm of “dependency theory.” We will consider both how Brazilian intellectuals contributed to dependency theory and what their analyses offer for thinking about Brazil’s independence and place in the world today. The oeuvre of Brazilian dependentistas insisted on the impossibility of understanding the history of Brazil and Latin America without considering the complex dynamics between the national and the international, between domestic political and economic structures and the broader world system of which they were part. This conference, 200 years after Brazil’s formal independence, evaluates the promise and limitations of their analysis, at once historicizing dependency theory and using the authors associated with it to better understand the present.

    Spotlight on the mine

    When cinema and literature take hold of the subject

    As part of the exhibition organised around this theme, the Centre Historique Minier has launched a call for papers for an international conference Spotlight on the mine, when cinema and literature take hold of the subject. In the contemporary era, mining has formed the subject of numerous artistic performances, particularly in the fields of writing and literature (mine novel, testimony, poetry, comic strip …), on the one hand, as well as in the world of cinema and audiovisual arts (fiction, documentary, animated film …). These representations have served as a place of artistic innovation, as well as a medium for mass culture (which developed alongside the mining industry), to such an extent that veritable sub-genres (the mine novel, the mine film) have been created, each with their own archetypes.

    Traveling manuscripts. Maritime transport and the circulation of manuscripts

    Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, 16th-18th centuries

    According to the countless travelers who reported having seen their papers sunk into the abyss, the transport of manuscripts by sea was not an easy undertaking in early modern times. Still, since the emergence of the great European navies in the 17th century, considerable masses of documents of all kinds have filled European repositories and libraries from faraway places. Some are produced within an institutional framework linked to the maritime activity itself (newspapers, correspondence, maps...), others come from the initiative of actors who seek to extract information, knowledge or prestige from the manuscripts. It is also a question of apprehending, in a new light, documentary corpuses that are often reduced to their content, whereas they are often the result of a complex transaction between travelers, local intermediaries, patrons and powerful collectors.
