    Dancing to the Empire’s Limits (16th-18th centuries)

    L’Espagne est un maillon essentiel dans l’économie des langages chorétiques européens à l’époque moderne. Sans nier le rôle matriciel de la France et de l’Italie, il faut donc rappeler son rôle dans un réseau de pratiques communes aux cours européennes et alimentées par leurs échanges et leurs dialogues. Or, par l’ampleur de son empire et de son influence culturelle, la monarchie hispanique contribua à la diffusion des codes et des modes de la danse européenne jusque dans les territoires de ses vice-royaumes, tout en intégrant par différents procédés d’hybridation, certaines des traditions chorégraphiques propres à ces cultures. C’est dans ce grand cadre de réflexion que se situe l’appel à projet du colloque « Danser jusque dans les confins de l’Empire (XVIe-XVIIIe siècle) », qui aura lieu les 26 et 27 juin 2023 à la Casa de Velázquez à Madrid.

    Afro-Diasporic Imaginaries in 20th and 21st–Century Latin American and Caribbean Literature and Visual Arts

    Nakan Journal

    In this volume, we would like to analyze in depth the paths taken by the 20th and 21st century Latin American and Caribbean letters in relation to the experience of the black diaspora in dialogue with the visual arts, as well as in relation to the main themes, forms and techniques used by artist, playwrights, poets, storytellers and writers. In a context of increasing violence and intolerance towards minorities in Latin America, we will welcome analyses that focus on the relationship between literature and the resistance of the cultures created by the black diaspora.

    Financing agricultural and food transformations. Practices, mechanisms, collective action, and public policies

    « Revue internationale des études du développement » n°254

    This issue is a continuation of the series of thematic issues that the Revue Tiers Monde, now the Revue internationale des études du développement has regularly published for 25 years on the subject of financial inclusion (no. 145, 1996; no. 172, 2002; no. 197, 2009; no. 225, 2016). This issue calls for original papers based on field research that contribute to knowing how the transformation of agricultural and rural systems in emerging and developing countries is financed, and more specifically, how farmers are financed. It aims, in particular, at delving into the new practices in the field of agricultural and rural financing, which is often marginalized in development financing policies.

    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.

    Urban Images in African Contexts

    In this special section, we seek to reimagine imagetic and urban practices and representations of the African continent, articulating two main fields, the visual and the urban. Here we want to reunite research that discouses discourses, imaginaries, representations, figurations, and politics about different African cities. Here we understand "images" in a broad sense, encompassing not only production and reproduction technologies, like photography and film but also virtual and digital, visual arts, and museum expositions. The purpose is not only to extend the debate over the field of the visual in different cities from an anthropological perspective. In this special section, we want to punctuate the implications of the imagens in a diversity of urban processes in the continent, emphasizing the plasticity of its forms and contents, its changes, its ambivalence, and opacity; beyond the debates about gender, agency, power, and resistance.

    Crises in the Americas

    Revue « RITA » N°16

    Crises are generally understood as undesirable, unexpected and contingent situations. In this issue of RITA, we wish to question the production of these phenomena that are calledcrises, from “laissez-faire” to “negligence”; from the banalization of the crisis in media oracademic discourse to the enunciation processes of public authorities. In “times of crises”, theywill justify more directly the imposition of social, economic or even military measures.

    The world of sports in the Americas and their political, cultural and social representations

    Amerika Journal n°25

    Sporting events mark the center of interest in the social life for many countries in the world. However, if we focus on the Americas, this importance is even more obvious. Sport becomes a reason for encounter, community, and connection. It brings out levels of interest and reinforces local, regional or beyond that, the game that is often unparalleled. Few people escape the passion that surrounds a country in the face of success in global competitions. This phenomenon, based on collective pride, pushes boundaries and includes even the most critical viewers. Can we consider this contradiction one of the keys to success?

    From disability to human variation. Old narratives, new narratives

    European and American societies 19th-21st centuries

    The title of this issue of Amnis journal, ‘From disability to human variation’, reflects the concern of disability studies to move away from thinking of disability as a stigma and to consider it within a vast field that embraces all forms of bodily, sensory and cognitive diversity within the human community. In order to address the question from a broad spectrum, papers should focus on the following areas: Disabilities, struggles and social movements (from exclusion to ‘nothing about us without us’), Disability policies (national and/or transnational historical approaches), Disabled bodies and ideological constructs, Disability and identity, a category to be understood in an intersectional way.

    The Sustainable Development Goals under scrutiny

    « Revue internationale des études du développement » n°253 (2023-3)

    A new international framework for development, called the UN 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, emerged in 2015 as a result of the rise of sustainable development as a dominant paradigm for development and of the criticisms addressed to the MDGs. The new agenda established 17 development goals instead of 8 (MDGs). The SDGs made some progress compared to the MDGs. Because they target common challenges like climate change, the reach and legitimacy of the SDGs were extended. As we stand midway towards the set deadlines for achievement, it is time to question the relevance, foundations and the implementation of the SDGs. It also seems legitimate to question their universal and inclusive character, and their actual outcomes since 2015 by using critical and contexual approaches.

    Géographies du Sahara : nouveaux enjeux de recherche et renouvellement des méthodes

    Cahiers « L’Ouest saharien »

    The Sahara is one of the most difficult regions in the world for researchers to access. Despite this, geographical research on the Sahara remains dynamic. A desert space often considered as "empty", it offers strong and constantly renewed problems and issues: desertification, resource management and gold rush, migration and smuggling, border issues, etc. At the time of the Anthropocene, what can living, working and circulating on the margins of the ecumene teach us today? Three axes are proposed: memories, mutations, marginalities and Saharan centralities.

    Physical and sports activities and populism

    Interactions between two contemporary social phenomena

    L’objet de cette journée d’étude est de dresser un premier état des lieux entre activités physiques (sports, éducation physique, etc.) et populisme, à travers des exemples particulièrement significatifs (Jeux olympiques, sport de compétition, formation, etc.), de la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle jusqu’à aujourd’hui, à travers différents pays et, en particulier, l’Amérique du sud, berceau de cette « idéologie » avec la Russie. Le sport sous toutes ses formes d’expression (Jeux olympiques, sport « bourgeois », sport ouvrier, etc.) sera envisagé ainsi que certaines figures révélatrices de cette orientation (Mussolini, Poutine, Orban, etc.).

    Cordel Literature: new perspectives, new approaches

    Jangada Journal #20

    Due to its thematic, poetic, and expressive diversity, the cordel witnessed, narrated, and recorded several national history moments. Even though only men mastered the art of composing and singing in verse initially, little by little, women also took the stage. Nowadays, poets adjust national and international interest themes to their meter, rhyme, and clause. They denounce the system’s falsities and contradictions; they question decisions and mock hypocrisy without, however, losing that aura of playfulness and wonder that has consecrated the cordel among us. Originally handwritten and later in printed versions, cordel has maintained a strong connection with the voice and culture of fairs and squares, the fey and laughter of rogue heroes, and the feeling of indignation of the less favored and the exaltation of legendary braves since the end of the 19th century. More recent researchers drew attention to the relationship between cordel and its singers’ orality and body performance while singing poetry and African griots. In this thematic issue, we propose to host papers concerning the most varied studies on cordel literature and its cultural practices.

    What Latin America says to Europe: circulations, imaginaries, viewpoints (and fantasies)

    We often tend to think of Latin America as a periphery of the global space. The very idea of globalization is frequently equated with that of cultural “Americanization”. Understood as a “United States of America-nization”, it is generally considered only as a circulation of ideas, models, knowledge, techniques or cultural objects from the North or the West to the South. However, working on Latin America frequently leads us to encounter traces of it or to identify its influence in Europe. Politics, culture or knowledge: the objective of this conference is to study some of the diverse forms of Latin American presence in Europe and/or in the European gaze. The works discussed here will take these circulations as an object, analyzing their processes, forms and impact. But they can also take a more reflexive form, by questioning the status of European-based researchers interested in Latin America.

    Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)

    As part of its research programme “Court identities and the myth of Versailles in Europe: perception, adherence and rejection (18th-19th centuries)” (2017-…), the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles wishes to publish articles related to this subject on the Bulletin du Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Research will be organised along five different lines, through which the idea of the “perfect court”, such as we find at Versailles, can be defined: organisational model, public and private areas in the residence, reigning and governing in Europe, palace and democracy, State and palace rituals.

    Analysis of relics, hagiographic legends and Carolingian memories

    Around the body of the Apostle James the Greater in Toulouse

    Since the 14th century, the Basilica of Saint-Sernin in Toulouse has been proud to possess the entire body of James the Greater. After a first preparatory seminar on 11 March 2019 in Toulouse (Vraies et fausses reliques: un vrai faux problème), a workshop was held on 10 December 2021 (Les reliques toulousaines de Jacques le Majeur), focusing on the material aspects (examination of bones, reliquaries, and authentic items). In a final stage, the results of these analyses should be put into perspective during a meeting which would lead to the writing of a monograph bringing together all the studies carried out on the relics of Saint James in Toulouse.

    Decentering the analysis of Africa-China relations

    Revue internationale des études du développement n°251 (2023-1)

    The question put forward by the vast majority of works studying the relations between Africa and China is “What is China doing in Africa? What are the Chinese doing in Africa?”, thus often overlooking the anthropological dimension of social, economic, and political change in which African actors can reclaim their place, in other words an approach that would decenter China and the Chinese in order to shed light on the microfoundations of the macroprocesses of development by examining Africa and Africans. Agency – or agentivité as it is now commonly called in French – is defined here as the ability to effect or introduce socio-economic and political changes in the arena in which the actors are involved. By addressing the question of African agentive practices and norms in Afro-Chinese relations, this call for papers therefore leads to decentering China to focus on Africa.

    Transforming and appropriating space in the Iberian empires of the 15th to 17th centuries

    Journée doctorale Campus Condorcet

    The appropriation and transformation of landscapes and territories are at the core of the colonial processes in the Iberian empires. By focusing on the modalities of space transformation, this workshop will interrogate the specificity of the tools and practices developed in the Iberian Empires to control space and exploit territories, between the 15th and 17th centuries.

    The Myth of Versailles and European Courts, 17th and 20th centuries

    Ce colloque est organisé dans le cadre du programme « Identités curiales et le mythe de Versailles en Europe : perceptions, adhésions et rejets (XVIIIe-XIXe siècle) » mené par le centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Il a pour objectif d’analyser le modus operandi du mythe de Versailles dans l’Europe monarchique des XVIIIe, XIXe et XXe siècles, en prenant en compte les deux éléments contradictoires mais complémentaires qui caractérisent cette notion : le réel et la reconstruction du réel. L’enjeu sera donc double : cerner comment les différents aspects propres à l’identité de Versailles ont pu nourrir un imaginaire, mais aussi saisir la manière dont cet imaginaire a pu susciter d’autres réalisations – architecturales, rituelles, politiques.
