    The Materiality of Modernisms

    Within the framework of intertwining multiple approaches to the material and medial dimensions through which modernisms have been – and are being – studied, the conference will also offer an opportunity to revisit through this angle three events whose 100th  anniversary takes place in 2022. The publication of Joyce’s Ulysses, the organization of The Week of  Modern Art in São Paulo and the premiére of the Triadisches Ballett by Oskar Schlemmer, can be in fact set as clear examples of a broader and heterogeneous «discourse of the legitimation of change» (Osborne 2013), that only much later became known as “Modernism”. Round tables with guests and experts will be dedicated to these three topics as part of the conference program.

    Repenser la matérialité des régimes autoritaires de l’Amérique latine du XXe siècle

    Cette journée d’étude vise à explorer les différentes facettes de la matérialité de l’État dans les régimes autoritaires d’Amérique latine de 1908, date de la prise du pouvoir du général Juan Vicente Gómez au Venezuela, à 1989, date de la chute du régime d’Alfredo Stroessner au Paraguay, afin d’offrir des clés d’explication peu explorées concernant la physionomie de ces régimes. Les communications pourront aborder cette question sous l’angle du droit, du déploiement institutionnel ou de la modernisation de l’État et de ses institutions, des dynamiques internationales, du rôles des fonctionnaires, des agents de l’État et des responsables de la gestion gouvernementale au quotidien, mais aussi des vecteurs de visibilité et de matérialité de ces régimes dans l’espace national, des pratiques commémoratives et de la construction d’un récit national, ou encore du rôle de l’État, mais aussi des modalités de la mise en place de leurs projets politiques.

    Didactique(s), plurilinguisme(s), mondialisation(s)

    La didactique des langues est un domaine pluriel, où se côtoient des recherches diversement situées, qui interrogent des situations variées, des thématiques distinctes, voisines ou complémentaires, selon des approches qui privilégient différentes orientations et démarches liées à l’appropriation d’une ou de plusieurs langues par des apprenants et/ou aux rôles joués par différents acteurs dans l’appropriation langagière. Cette année, les organisateurs ont choisi d’interroger plus spécifiquement la notion de mondialisation comme angle d’analyse des situations didactiques.

    Les enjeux environnementaux à l’aube de la nouvelle élection présidentielle au Brésil : bilan et perspectives

    L’élection de Jair Bolsonaro en 2018 a suscité des craintes sur les possibles impacts négatifs de son mandat sur l’environnement. En pleine campagne, il avait notamment assuré que plus « un centimètre carré de terre ne serait octroyé aux indigènes », et qu’il pourrait mettre fin au ministère de l’Environnement. Plus de trois ans après le début de son mandat, peu de voix s’élèvent pour défendre son bilan environnemental, très largement critiqué au Brésil comme à l’international. Alors qu’une nouvelle campagne se prépare pour les élections prévues en octobre 2022, nous proposons de donner la parole à des chercheurs et chercheuses issu·e·s de plusieurs champs disciplinaires, afin de revenir sur l’ensemble du mandat de l’actuel président et de décrypter les changements intervenus sur la période et leurs effets.

    The Fantastic from screen to books, from books to screen: adaptations, reworkings, translations, mentions

    Revue « Caderno de Letras », #43 (2022)

    Since its origins, Cinema has made evident the existence of an open dialogue with other forms of art, either by having incorporated them into its own language – given its hybrid particularity, being simultaneously narrative, performative, visual and voiced –, or by having used existing productions as inspiration and having created, from them, new forms of art. Literature has proven to be a fertile ground for inspiration. Not by chance, great works that mark the beginning of the cinematographic trajectory were adaptations of novelistic or theatrical literary works. We propose for the issue 43 of Journal Caderno de Letras a dossier on all the potentialities of such dialogue involving Fantastic literary and audiovisual productions, whether based on adaptations (in both directions) or on the direct or indirect presence of Literature in audiovisual media or of audiovisual productions in literary texts.

    Imagining the “musical memorial”

    Music and (re)transmission of memories of slave trades and slaveries

    The aim of this special issue is to pursue the reflection initiated by the journal Esclavages & post~esclavages/Slaveries & Post~Slaveries on the work of artists and their re-actualization through sensitive forms of the history and memories of the slave trades and slaveries, this time with a focus on the question of music. This dossier will attempt to unfold the complex ways in which music has become a source and a resource for memories, from the time of the slave trades and slaveries to the present day.

    The Americas, lands of books

    RITA N°15

    In 2020, a project to introduce a tax on books in Brazil—the sector had so far enjoyed a tax-exempt status—, promoted by the Ministry of Economy, clashed with the country's publishing community and was finally buried by pressure from Evangelical circles, eternal supporters of the Bolsonaro government. In a country where the Bible is still the most widely read book, and where sales records are held by religious publishing houses, it is obvious that this could only represent an object of conflict. Beyond its anecdotal dimension, this fact raises questions about the book itself as an object. As trivial and mundane as it may seem, the book is still a strategic object, which can be apprehended in its materiality, as Roger Chartier does—by observing its circulation, its storage, its sales and purchases, whether official or underground—but also in its content.

    Imago, Actus et Verbum. Challenges and Questions in Medieval Studies

    A crossdisciplinary dialogue between philology, philosophy, history, art and literature

    On the outset of the 21st century, cross-disciplinary studies on the Middle Ages seem to be in need of a careful reconsideration of their nature, scope and aims. This is specially so after the series of "turns" undergone by historiography in the last four decades. Despite their differences, philosophy, history, philology , literary studies and art are also bound through their work on texts; and all are currently faced with both methodological and substantive issues raised by important shifts in contemporary society. This congress is devoted to a global assessment of the current state of affairs in medieval studies, but also the upcoming challenges.
