    Customer-facing service work as a moment of truth?

    European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS) 2015 – Subtheme n°64

    The proportion of people working in jobs where dealing with a client/customer is essential has grown considerably (e.g. MacDonald & Merrill, 2009). Although this could encourage the investigation of differences and singularities of service work, managerialist approaches rather tend to assume universal management models, based on a prescriptive set of human resources practices and a harmonious vision of the relationships between management, customers and employees. Writing within this tradition, Norman (1984) labeled the point at which client/customer and service worker interact as the 'moment of truth' for the service firm. This sub-theme asks scholars to critically reflect on what kind of truth claims are put forward, enacted and experienced within service interactions, and on how we, as scholars, mediate these truth claims. A different set of answers to these questions are suggested, for instance, within sociological approaches that analyse service settings as based on potentially antagonistic relationships leading to contradictions and tensions between the parties involved (e.g. Korczynski, 2002; Lopez, 2010).

    Travel in France and Ireland: Tourism, Sport and Culture

    11th AFIS Conference, University of La Rochelle

    Travel is one of Man’s main driving forces. The sea is an important feature of the geography of both Ireland and France, so it is perhaps unsurprising that waves of migration have been such an important aspect of the history of both countries. In ancient times and still today, we travel through necessity (wars, persecutions, economic, political and climatic reasons), by vocation (religious and humanitarian) and for pleasure (tourism, culture and sport).

    The Bonds That Unite?

    Historical Perspectives on European Solidarity

    The concept of “solidarity” is in many respects fundamental to the European project. While pro-European intellectuals had long applied it as a more or less abstract reference, the concept evolved into a solid cornerstone of European unity after the Second World War. The notion of a European solidarity union was essential to validating the integration process and had always been a component of redistribution policies on the supra-national level. Nevertheless it remained context-sensitive and open to interpretation and consequently was always the outcome of complex negotiation processes. The conference will examine various manifestations and interpretations of the solidarity concept in the course of the 19th and 20th centuries.

    The economic agent and its representation(s)

    3rd International Conference Economic Philosophy

    It goes without saying that how the “economic agent” is represented does matter to the utmost. It matters as much for economic theory as for empirical investigations that are based upon such models. It matters in the way institutions emerge, as to how societies get organized, and for the many devices contributing to the “general good” (whether they appear spontaneously, or are pragmatically and purposely created). It matters also for correcting incomplete or missing markets.

    L'automédication en question

    Un bricolage socialement et territorialement situé

    Se soigner par soi-même est une pratique controversée : vilipendée au nom des risques sanitaires ainsi courus, cette pratique peut aussi être exaltée au nom de l’autonomie ainsi déployée. Les messages des pouvoirs publics sont au cœur de la controverse, insistant selon les périodes tantôt sur les risques, et tantôt sur la responsabilité des patients qui pourrait ainsi s’exercer. De telles injonctions contradictoires affectent également les pratiques des professionnels du soin. Le choix du colloque est de permettre des comparaisons et des confrontations entre ces différentes approches disciplinaires mais aussi ces terrains de recherche distincts (Nord / Sud, Nord / Nord et Sud / Sud). Il nous faut analyser et cartographier plus finement ces pratiques et leurs déterminants pour mettre en perspective ces analyses par définition toujours partielles, situées théoriquement, historiquement et géographiquement.

    Figures de l'Éros

    Journal of Phenomenological and Existential Theory and Culture

    Eros plays a central role in Western thought. In the philosophical and spiritual traditions, it usually refers to physical love and desire. Eros is a recurring character in the pre-Socratic cosmogonies, and it is the main impulse of the philosophical quest for truth in Plato’s Phaedrus. This Special Topics issue of PhænEx wishes to give a new impulse to philosophical reflections on this fundamental and ambiguous phenomenon, following an interdisciplinary perspective at the intersection of phenomenology, post-structuralism, and social sciences (psychology, sociology, sexology, anthropology, linguistics, etc.).

    Mapping Fields of Study: Renegotiations of Disciplinary Spaces in the English Speaking World

    Disciplines and fields of study are far from being stable entities; tracing the history of any field of study reveals their connection to social and cultural contexts, attempts at legitimation, shifts in methodological approaches, complex relations with other fields of study, as well as the influence of institutional factors.

    The First World War from Tripoli to Mogadishu (1912-1924)

    "How, because of two wild beasts the world was set alight"

    Writing the history of the first World War from an African perspective is the main ambition of this conference. The Global approach challenges the traditional center and periphery model. What we would like to suggest in this conference is the adoption of a combination of different scales of analysis: local, national and transnational. The goal of the conference is to bring together experts, academics, early-career historians and doctoral students from different disciplines to share new scholarly work and to enrich the history of the first World War in Africa and the Middle East.

    Europe and Asia: challenges and crisis-management

    Further to the first Europe-Asia conferences exploring regional regime dynamics (France, 2004), policies of regional cooperation (Korea, 2005), interregional competition (France, 2012) and the limits of regional constructions (Kazakhstan, 2014), this 2016 edition will look at the reciprocal understanding of regions and how that is conducive to their capacity (or lack thereof) to monitor crises they undergo, both specific crises and interregional ones. Papers must address original research, in regional dynamics of Asia and Europe, since the end of the cold war and focus on one area among.

    Res Antiquitatis. Journal of Ancient History, vol. 6 (2016)

    Res Antiquitatis is the most recent editorial project of the Centre for Overseas History (CHAM) with the aim of becoming a space for reflexion and debate on Antiquity. The study and investigation of several Antiquities, from the Pre-Classical and Near Eastern to the Classic Antiquity, are the main motivation of this project, both for its intrinsic scientific interest and the conviction that such investigation may become, on the whole, a useful conceptual reflexion for the study of other periods and historical questions. Since it is not established any special theme for this issue, all contributions should, as usual, relate to Antiquity, either as specific area of studies or as object of cultural, social and historiographic reception through History.

    Censorship: Creative contemporary constraints and dynamics in the representation of the British and American nations

    This 2016 workshop on contemporary US-UK photography will take on the notion of censorship. With photography as its starting point, this edition aims to extend the debate to include the contemporary image on the whole. It is interested in the intermedial forays of other artistic forms in the practice of photographers (art installations, video and/or audio productions, performance, urban art practices, text/image interactions). How does the very artistic form/medium become in itself a means of expression and commitment when confronted with censorship, a means to create unity against censorship, a tool for identity expression of a group or of a minority, to circumvent constraints, or thrive upon these limits and generate creative impetus from them?

    On Homophonic Translation

    Depuis une cinquantaine d’années, la traduction homophonique (homophonic translationsound translationOberflächenübersetzung) a fait son entrée dans le champ littéraire international, où elle est pratiquée par un nombre croissant d’écrivains, aux États-Unis, en Allemagne, en France et au-delà. À la suite de quelques pionniers tels que Louis Zukofsky, Ernst Jandl ou les membres du groupe Oulipo, ce genre hétérodoxe, entre traduction et création, s’est largement diffusé sur le plan international, jusqu’à faire partie des exercices proposés aux étudiants dans les cours de creative writing. Jugée par d’aucuns comme une pratique inacceptable, illégitime voire peu éthique, cette approche de la traduction occupe néanmoins aujourd’hui une place essentielle au sein des formes littéraires expérimentales, en particulier dans le domaine de la poésie.
