    Blackness and Racial Relations

    Revue « Horizontes Antropológicos »

    La revue internationale Horizontes Antropológicos lance un appel à contribution pour son dossier thématique « Négritude et relations raciales ». Le concept de race, même repensé scientifiquement et compris comme une construction sociale et politique, demeure un défi académique, compte tenu de la façon dont sont vécues les relations raciales et de pouvoir et la manière dont cette question est inscrite à l’ordre du jour de la lutte contre le racisme. Ce dossier vise à rassembler des travaux récents et critiques qui repositionnent les sciences sociales quant au concept de race et à l’étude des relations raciales. Les travaux s’inscriront dans les débats sur l’intersectionnalité de genre, de race, de génération, de classe, sur l’invisibilité des relations raciales dans le champ scientifique et les expériences de racialisation à l’échelle globale.

De l’époque de la Libération à nos jours, que reste-t-il des Luso-africains en Sénégambie ? Quel héritage ces populations ont laissé dans le paysage culturel, politique, linguistique et culinaire, entre autres, de la région ?

    African Ivories

    In the Atlantic World, 1400-1900

    Since April 2015, the international team working on the project “African Ivories in the Atlantic World: a reassessment of Luso-African ivories” (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia: PTDC/EPH-PAT/1810/2014), composed of 27 researchers from the University of Lisbon, the University of Évora and the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil, has been researching the trade, circulation and production of raw and carved African ivory in the Atlantic area from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century. The team has identified and listed objects from Portuguese and Brazilian (Minas Gerais) collections, also collecting references and descriptions extant in written Portuguese sources. For the first time a selection of ivory pieces was subjected to lab tests with a view to helping establish their age and origin. The project research team has submitted proposals for re-interpreting material culture in the framework of its African contexts of production.

    Africa and Latin America - transatlantic interactions

    Ce colloque vise à interroger et débattre sur les différentes interactions sociales, historiques, politiques, épistémologiques entre le continent africain et latino-américain. Au cours de ce colloque, il ne s’agira pas seulement de jeter un regard sur le chemin parcouru ni de faire le bilan des recherches effectuées au sein du Centre d’études et de recherches afro-ibéro-américaines (CERAFIA). Mais, il faudra surtout repenser le CERAFIA en dessinant un nouvel avenir et de nouveaux enjeux. Il faudra également renforcer son insertion pluridisciplinaire au sein de la recherche scientifique gabonaise, sans rien lâcher de sa perspective comparatiste et triangulaire entre l’Europe, l’Afrique et l’Amérique latine.

    African Socialism | Socialism in Africa

    It is high time to give Africa its rightful place in the global historiography of socialism and to socialism its right in the History of Africa. Historians of socialism systematically forget Africa. Yet many African states professed “African” or scientific socialism, many African political actors used the theoretical toolbox drawn from the Marxist tradition. It offered support for the political advancement of colonial populations and the building of post-colonial States. The USSR, China, Cuba, offered ready-to-use models. Some states even tried to invent the ir own forms of African socialism, adapted to the specific conditions of Africa and true to its theoretical roots.

    Confused interfaces: norms, classifications and the primacy of language in questions

    TansOceanik international seminar

    La proposition de cette rencontre et d’essayer de questionner les normes essentialisantes – telle qu’exprimées dans les discriminations raciales -, les classifications – qui excluent certaines couches de la population – et le primat du langage – qui évacue la cognition des expériences sensibles, telle la culture des signes des sourds. Nous proposons de croiser des expériences existentielles à la frontière de trois oppositions classiques : masculin/féminin, humain/non humain, vivant/mort en invitant des spécialistes travaillant sur des terrainsde contextes culturels différents à discuter entre eux et avec des philosophes et des psychanalystes.
