    Forest citizenship for disaster resilience: learning from COVID-19

    Postdoctoral fellowship of the Research Project Trans-Atlantic Platform (FAPESP/ESRC/NSF)

    The Project “Forest citizenship for disaster resilience: learning from COVID-19” and the Department of Sociology at Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) are receiving applications for one postdoctoral (PD) scholarship to develop research on forest citizenship in Amazonia. This scholarship is associated with the Trans-Atlantic Platform, supported by FAPESP Grant 2021/07558-3, directed by Prof. Dr. Rodrigo Constante Martins in Brazil, Luke Parry in the United Kingdom, and Peter Newton in the United States. The main goal of this postdoctoral fellowship, which was pre-approved by the Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), is to investigate how forest peoples, notably rural communities and riverine populations, have made use of specific practices and actions to face the pandemic of COVID-19, and how the strategies adopted by these social groups - outside the established institutional circuits - have been constituted as important instruments for the maintenance of their ways of life.

    Dialogues in Antiquity: Archetypes for a Contemporary World

    Xth Conference on Classical Philology in honorem Giselle von der Walde

    The expressive wealth of dialogue presents itself in numerous artistic and intellectual ways. The encounters between emotional and aesthetic resources, pedagogical and didactic purposes, as well as between claims of objectivity and scientific rigor, are fertile ground for the transdisciplinary inquiry characteristic of classical studies. This invites a diversity and multiplicity of perspectives for contributions in relation to ancient authors and their works. Investigating the history of dialogue since Antiquity also allows us to consider it as an archetype for the exchange of opinions and ideas. This is suitable for dealing with current problems that increasingly require the willingness to negotiate and rethink ideas and convictions, empathize with the feelings of others, and build agreements based on the examination of opposing arguments and points of view.

    Climate change and digital sound and audiovisual preservation

    IV International Congress of Digital Archives

    El cambio climático es el proceso que pone en riesgo la vida, la salud y el desarrollo de las naciones. De acuerdo con la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, en muchos países las temperaturas han presentado niveles máximos sin precedentes, los niveles de gases de efecto invernadero están aumentando, el nivel del mar está subiendo y los desastres naturales se agravan. Las soluciones encaminadas a crear economías verdes y sustentables van acompañadas de cambios en diferentes aspectos de la actividad humana. La investigación científica ocupa un espacio relevante y necesario para formular aportaciones que minimicen el impacto del cambio climático en la sociedad. Uno de los ámbitos poco estudiados, con incidencia en el cambio climático, es el relativo a los archivos digitales sonoros y audiovisuales. No obstante que la preservación digital de archivos sonoros y audiovisuales genera de forma constante basura tecnológica y requiere del uso continuo de energía.

A nova edição do evento busca se adequar nas atuais interpretações sobre a História e Historiografia do mundo nórdico, mas também reforçar o estudo das fontes materiais em seus variados aspectos, concedendo aos pesquisadores latino-americanos e falantes da língua portuguesa novas possibilidades de investigações, diálogos e perspectivas.

    New visions on fantasy

    Jangada Journal #18 – Dec. 2021

    Drawing from the history of Fantasy as a genre, this issue of Jangada Journal, from Viçosa Federal University, invites researchers to submit papers on such a pervading category in contemporary literature. We encourage analysis concerning structural and thematic approaches to the genre. We are also interested, in particular, in papers that focus on works insufficiently studied so far, extrapolating Anglophone backgrounds that have engendered Fantasy, and relating diverse media expressions through which Fantasy was disseminated.

    ¡La Nueva Canción da la vuelta al mundo! Conexiones, transferencias y apropiaciones

    A mediados de la década de 1960, surgió y se extendió a lo largo de toda América Latina un movimiento que —bajo los rótulos compartidos de nueva canción, canto nuevo, nueva trova, nuevo cancionero, canto popular y canción de autor, entre otros — tuvo como objetivo reinventar la canción  popular de raíz folclórica. Bajo el contexto de la Guerra fría, numerosos músicos provenientes de diferentes dominios del arte y de áreas culturales heterogéneas se nutrieron de la discusión acerca del antiimperialismo, el internacionalismo, el indigenismo, el socialismo, la recuperación de tradiciones populares, y la difusión de un arte pedagógico. Al incorporar estas reflexiones en la propia práctica del folclor, los músicos transformaron la nueva canción en una respuesta artística  a los problemas globales.

    1956-1958: A revolutionary period that changed Africa (and the world)

    The objective of this panel is to compare the various social mobilizations that took place in Africa during the years 1956-1958 and which arguably constitute a historical watershed. The main aim of the panel is not the making of an abstract comparative analysis, but the analysis, based on the testimonial material collected, of how the memory of these events has been structured over time. Moreover, we are interested in understanding what the impacts of these social movements were on the structuring of states and what continuities can be found between the mobilizations of that period and the ary social mobilizations that have shaken the continent in the last ten years, from the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011 onwards.

    New approaches to the history of soft power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries

    The study of soft power in the modern period is unequal, with much attention understandably paid to the Cold War when culture offered a surrogate for damaged and blocked political dialogues. But practices that aimed at promoting a nation abroad were not invented after the Second World War, nor were they inexistent before then. Some historians have traced their origins back to the nineteenth century with the formation of nation states (in Europe) and the growth of ministries of foreign affairs.  In addition, the historiography has largely omitted soft power policies produced by and targeting so called “periphery countries”. Therefore, much remains to be written if we are to fully appreciate the history of soft power and its associated key concepts (public and cultural diplomacy, propaganda, publicity, promotion, oeuvres -in the French context, public relations) and the multiplicity of meanings with which these ideas and practices were endowed globally throughout the modern period.

    Quantum Social Theory: The Future of Sociology?

    In sociology, without explicit basis on quantum theory, numerous streams established strong similarities with it, setting at the forefront of their paradigm: the subjectivity of the observer, the continuous adjustment between the object and the observer, the impossibility to be fully deterministic or discussions about an objective reality. In this session, we invite panellists to discuss the links that can be drawn between quantum theory and sociology. We welcome both empirical (qualitative or quantitative) as well as theoretical papers. Depending on the variety and the quality of the papers, a publication will be considered to set the basis of this emerging theoretical stream.

    Estudos feministas e de gênero em jornalismo: história, metodologia e epistemologia

    Revista Âncora - Revista Latino-americana de Jornalismo (UFPB)

    A Revista Âncora - Revista Latino-americana de Jornalismo - lança seu novo dossiê temático que tem como título «Estudos feministas e de gênero em jornalismo: história, metodologia e epistemologia». A trajetória da relação ambígua e potente entre o feminismo e a academia é longa. Dos chamados estudos de mulheres, até a década de 1970, ao campo dos estudos de gêneros, que se intensificaram a partir da década de 1980, a atuação de feministas dentro das universidades provocou tensionamentos em alicerces importantes do que tradicionalmente se entendia por conhecimento válido, assim como o perfil e atributos esperados para caracterizar o então sujeito produtor do saber científico.
