    History and Memory: Epistemological Reinterpretation of Africa's Past in a Post-Colonial Context

    “Práticas da História” journal

    This special issue of Práticas da História is interested in receiving contributions, referring to colonial and post-colonial African contexts. It is important to better understand what is happening in different African countries, at the level of the Academy but also in other spaces where social memory and history confront each other, and how political, ideological, economic and linguistic factors interfere in those situations. In the case of the former Portuguese colonies, which will soon celebrate 50 years of independence, there are additional factors, such as the later end of colonial rule and the delay in historiography about Africa that occurred until recent decades, both in Portugal and in Brazil.

    Crises, emerging risks and resilience. Challenges for risk management in a changing world

    Revue « Laboreal »

    A global scenario marked by multifaceted crises - environmental, health, geopolitical and social - is challenging our ability to rethink real work, reduce risks and support productive activity. In both the public and private sectors, facing an increasingly uncertain environment makes it necessary to develop capacities to anticipate threats and manage critical risks in order to avoid crises and recover when this has not been achieved. Laboreal invites researchers involved in these topics to submit their work and contribute to the publication of this issue. Papers detailing field experiences, which provide access to real work, will be given priority. The articles will be published in one of the journal's two languages (Spanish or Portuguese).

    Women missionaries in Islamic lands: roots, limits, changes (early 19th century - early 21st century)

    Despite their numerical preponderance among the missionary workforce exercising a Christian apotolate at the end of the Ottoman Empire, women have long attracted less work than men. A rebalancing is in progress, spurred on by the gender studies and extended to the whole Muslim world. We will focus on real encounter and conflict situations, avoiding an essentialist approach to Islam and considering the extreme diversity of the field strategies and practices. This approach will be carried out in equal parts, in a decentering and critical way, far from denominational approaches.

    Violence et mémoire dans les « mondes hispaniques » : Ruptures, continuités, discours et résistances (XXe-XXIe siècles)

    À l’origine de ce colloque international se trouve une réflexion générale sur deux problématiques indissociables des temps moderne et présent dans les mondes hispaniques : violence et mémoire. Nombreuses sont les interrogations qui découlent de l’intersection de ces deux notions aux contours mouvants, mais un axe central va les fédérer, celui de la réflexion sur l’influence de la violence dans la configuration sociale de la mémoire et sa dimension collective.

    Museum, heritage, identity

    Revue « Archipélies » n° 17, juin 2024

    In this age of globalisation, when human identities are becoming increasingly complex as a result of multiple interconnections, cultures are obviously becoming increasingly plural in their expression of identity. While no culture has ever been monolithic, they are even less so today. Taken in this dynamic context – which implies, moreover, a diversified understanding of the heritage and the museum; in addition to the semantic and consubstantial variety of the concept of the museum – these three notions (museum, heritage and identity) have relationships between them which have an impact on the construction of cultural identities and which, therefore, merit attention in this world shaped by globalisation which, if it is not new, has a particular resonance in its modern and contemporary forms.

    A beautiful painting ? Aesthetic canon(s) and pictorial production within the Spanish Crown territories (16th-19th centuries)

    Ces journées d’études sont consacrées à la question du beau dans la peinture produite dans les territoires de la Couronne d’Espagne (Espagne actuelle, mais également Sicile, Naples, Milan, Pays-Bas du Sud, Artois, Franche-Comté, ainsi que les territoires américains et philippins) du XVIe siècle au début du XIXe siècle. Elles visent à interroger à la fois la manière dont s’est forgé un idéal dans la peinture produite dans ces territoires, souvent associée dans l’historiographie à un canon « réaliste » ou « naturaliste », avec toutes les problématiques que ces termes impliquent, et la manière dont ce canon a été perçu et reçu, voire adapté, transformé aux différentes périodes. Qu’est-ce qui était considéré comme beau dans la peinture des territoires sous domination espagnole pendant les temps modernes ? Quel était l’idéal esthétique du peintre et du spectateur ? Le Beau était-il vraiment le premier objectif des peintres ?

    This special issue of the Revue internationale des études du développement aims to bring together articles examining the way in which individuals and organizations have been rethinking (or not) their risk management methods to better face the challenges brought about by climate change. To combine perspectives and methods, this call for papers invites the submission of work falling within the scope of the four lines of inquir: 1/ Climate challenges and informal risk management strategies: what is the nature of the reconfigurations taking place? 2/ Climate challenges and formal protection tools: what responses do formal organizations and markets provide? 3/ Informal strategies and formal tools: how do they interact? What benefits do they provide? 4/ Measures, perceptions, and representations.

    “Imago Mundi”. An Overview of Metaphor: Creativity, Phraseology and Discourse

    The guiding question of the conference will therefore be to try to specify the linguistic and conceptual functioning of the metaphor. More generally, the conference will welcome any contribution aimed at bringing out the relationships between metaphor and the three concepts in question: creativity, lexicalization and discourse. The analysis of metaphor can proceed from both a diachronic and synchronic perspective and address different types of corpora and texts. The conference will pay particular attention to the analysis of different types of discourse, in particular scientific, technological, media, tourism, advertising, political, legal, philosophical, historical, literary, artistic and educational/didactic discourse.

    L’Afrique dans la musique cubaine : perspectives et défis au XXIe siècle

    Le Centre d’études et de recherche musicales (CERMUS) invite la communauté académique à soumettre des travaux originaux pour envisager leur publication dans l’œuvre collective intitulée « África en la músicacubana: perspectivas y desafíos en el siglo XXI ». L’initiative de cette publication est motivée par les débats soulevés lors du congrès de la Latin American Studies Association (LASA - Afrique) qui s'est tenu au Ghana en 2023, où il est apparu nécessaire de revisiter, systématiser et actualiser la portée des approches qui ont soutenu les recherches musicologiques, ethnologiques et d’autres domaines des sciences sociales, qui sont aujourd’hui des références dans le champ des études sur l’héritage africain dans la musique cubaine.

    Pan-Africanisms, (Post-)Slavery and Race

    « Esclavages et Post-Esclavages / Slaveries and Post-Slaveries » Journal

    This issue of Slaveries & Post-Slaveries examines the repercussions of the transatlantic matrix of race on post-slavery societies. Particular attention will be paid to societies on the African continent, as the racial logics operating within them have rarely been studied. We understand racial logics as the assumption that supposed physical and cultural differences between groups are “inherited” from one generation to the next.

    Jacques Rancière et la démocratie

    L’éloignement grandissant du sujet de la participation politique dans les démocraties contemporaines, que ce soit au niveau des suffrages électoraux par l’expression du vote, de l’engagement associatif et syndical ou, de manière générale, des activités militantes, décrit un phénomène en forte progression au XXIe siècle. Cela génère une préoccupation pour laquelle on peut faire appel à l’œuvre politique de Jacques Rancière et à la contribution de ce dernier à la théorie démocratique. La théorisation et la critique de la démocratie, telles qu’il les aborde, explicitent tout particulièrement la promotion des pratiques libérales, la logique consensuelle et majoritaire esquivant l’attente égalitaire de la communauté et la valeur primordiale du peuple. Ainsi, l’encadrement de ce désintérêt, selon les explications que nous venons de donner, nous invite à mettre particulièrement en discussion l’avenir de la démocratie.

    Transmodernity in Caribbean Literature and Arts

    “Archipélies” n° 18

    This issue of Archipélies takes a cross-disciplinary look at Caribbean identity and its new forms of expression. The impact of philosopher Edouard Glissant's theories has given unprecedented visibility to the Caribbean as a “New World Region” whose mixed-race and digenetic populations are constructing an unprecedented phenomenology of Relation. According to Fernando Ortiz, the various manifestations of the process of cultural interweaving that is taking place within the territories of the Caribbean presuppose a “transculturation”, that is to say, a “trans-” formation of the subject as part of the transcultural dialogue between the Same and the Other. This phenomenon, inherent in the Pan-American space, had already been highlighted by the Brazilian anthropophagic modernist movement led by Oswald de Andrade.

    From limits to margins. Periphery(s) in stories and imaginarie Latin American contemporaries

    « Amerika », numéro 28

    This number attempts to define what the margins and peripheries are today in the imaginaries, stories, human sciences and cultural fields of the Americas. If the twentieth century saw, in most countries of Latin America, as it was about defining a cultural norm (which or not took over from the colonial period, whether or not integrating elements of pre-Hispanic history), also appeared increasingly affirmed countercultures and peripheral cultures. With digitalization, which occurred at the beginning of our century, a strong acceleration of the movement was noted. It is then worth asking what a peripheral/marginal culture may be, as well as looking for a way to define it. Another primary issue is knowing how (and by whom) these currents can be represented. In a somewhat binary conception of social, geographic and creative space, one would obviously have to oppose the notions of normativity and centrality to the margins.
