    Anthropologies of the United States of America

    Views from near and from afar

    This conference is an interdisciplinary research project intended for scholars from various fields. The aim is to discuss a historically, anthropologically and politically central country: the United States. Is it possible to see the United States as a country to be examined from multiple points of view – both from near and from afar – with particular interest in the current “anthropological” culture, while also paying attention to history and making predictions about the future? Specialists and enthusiasts from various backgrounds are invited to respond from specific perspectives, in order to compare and contrast different interpretations of the “American galaxy”. To this end, both studies of a theoretical nature and case studies are encouraged.

    Languages of urbanization and visions of the city

    This section will focus on the representations of urban spaces and urban lives in the Americas, with special regard to the languages and the social practices that convey – or that have conveyed in the past – the idea of “making the city”. We are especially interested both in grassroots movements of urban resistance and in counter-hegemonic representations of the urban space. We welcome contributions on practices of re-appropriation of the city, on the strategies of resistance to the processes of gentrification, on the relationship between urban space and subaltern groups (minorities and/or subcultures) and on the ways in which the urban space has been represented, reimagined or invented in literature, cinema, comics, music, photography, television, visual arts.

    Intermediality and transmediality in contemporary artistic practices

    Intermedialità e transmedialità nelle pratiche artistiche contemporanee

    Le groupe de recherche interdisciplinaire des départements de philosophie et de langues et cultures moderne de l'université de Gênes, organise un colloque international sur les questions concernant l'intermédialité et la transmédialité dans les pratiques artistiques contemporaines. Hybridation, intermédialité, transmédialité, multimédialité, intersémioticité sont les termes qui nous permettent de désigner l'entrecroisement de ces pratiques où se multiplient les emprunts entre cinéma, photographie, art numérique, art vidéo, littérature, etc., quoique la distinction conceptuelle entre chacune de ces notions ne soit encore tout à fait consolidée. Ce colloque se propose de développer une réflexion autour de l'usage de ces notions à travers un débat théorique entre diverses approches disciplinaires.

    Unusual actors

    Forms and effects of the informal action in the Caribbean, between legality and illegality (XVII-XXI century)

    What is the role of informal institutions in the evolution of the economic, political and social aspects of Caribbean basin? Diacronie will analyze the economic and social development of the area, focusing on the role played by informal actors, namely the ones moving between legality and illegality, that were able (or are able) to give the individual (no matter if a customer, consumer or merchant) what the laws prohibit. The objective is to examine both contemporary phenomena and phenomena which, although related to the early modern age, have generated long-term consequences in the history of the regions related to it.
