    Childhood(s) in Latin America: diversities in tension

    Thematic Dossier vol. XIII, n. 2, 2021

    The focus of the dossier is on the processes and social spaces for the construction and implementation of ideas about childhood, as well as the debates and tensions around them: education (formal, non-formal or informal) the family and parenting networks (nurture and care), the dynamics of gender construction and the collective sense of belonging (ethnicities and intercultural relations), labour aspects (rural and urban marginality and the issue of child labour) and areas of cultural production of each social group (the imaginaries, games, literature, sports and children entertainment).

    Doing with Delphy

    Nouvelles questions féministes journal, special issue

    Pionnière et inspiratrice d’un féminisme matérialiste toujours vivant parce qu’en débats, Christine Delphy continue d’y occuper une place prépondérante à de multiples égards. En tant que théoricienne dont les idées restent incisives et indispensables pour qui veut penser le monde en féministe. Mais aussi, et autant, en tant que militante ayant engagé une lutte radicale contre le patriarcat. Ce numéro hors-série de Nouvelles questions féministes (NQF) cherche à relayer la vitalité et l’actualité de l’œuvre de Christine Delphy. Cela, en invitant des auteur·e·s et militant·e·s féministes à présenter des textes illustrant comment elles et ils s’approprient ou se sont appropriés ses travaux. Dans une perspective radicale, chère à Delphy, notre appel ne se limite pas à l’influence de son œuvre dans le champ académique : il vise à recueillir des contributions portant sur la manière dont les textes ou les interventions de Delphy enrichissent et questionnent de nos jours la réflexion scientifique comme l’action militante, mais aussi les postures personnelles.

    The social dimensions of cognitive cartography

    Cartotête fourth study day

    Cognitive representations of geographical space are often studied in order to better understand how individuals perceive and deal with everyday spatial problems (Down and Stea, 1977), including orientation, trip planning or navigation. Since these works focus particularly on the functional dimension of such spatial representations, maps are read in a literal, rather than metaphorical perspective. In addition, individual geographical experiences, both direct (trips and visited places) or indirect (spatial information) is considered as the main factor contributing to their construction. Therefore, this “cognitive tool” is essentially considered as an individual and personal construction.

    Policing and Territories across Napoleonic Europe

    From Local to Imperial Scale

    Ce colloque international a pour objectif d’interroger le lien entre la police et l’espace impérial napoléonien, en étudiant l’administration, les pratiques policières et le contrôle du territoire dans les départements dits « de l’intérieur », dans ceux annexés, ainsi que dans les différents espaces placés sous contrôle impérial, comme les États satellites et les territoires ultra-marins. Il ambitionne de mette en lumière la diversité des configurations policières et leurs évolutions dans l’Empire, en comparant plusieurs profils d’espaces. Un premier axe d’étude cherche à questionner l’existence ou non d’un système policier centralisé, en réinterrogeant le rapport entre centre et périphérie(s). Un second axe d’études interroge les connexions policières à l’échelle impériale à travers l’examen de plusieurs cas de figure.

    Trade unions, conflictand direct action in the Americas and in Europe

    From the end of the 19th century to the 1980s

    Le syndicalisme peut se définir, sur un plan général, comme un outil collectif de défense des intérêts matériels et moraux d'un groupe de salarié·e·s, organisé·e·s par métier ou par branche d'activité ou, de manière croissante au cours du XXe siècle, sur une base intercatégorielle. Très tôt, dès la fin du XIXe, et indépendamment des régimes politiques au sein desquels il évolue, les militant·e·s syndicaux·le·s se posent la question des modalités d'action collective et de défense des intérêts moraux et matériels du mouvement ouvrier, entendu au sens large du terme. L'action du Premier mai 1886 à Chicago et le massacre de Haymarket Square, qui lui succède, le 4 mai, sont, en ce sens, des moments fondateurs de la période à laquelle le colloque sera consacré.

    Dominion of the Sacred

    Image, Cartography, Knowledge of the City after the Council of Trent ("In_bo" vol. 12, no. 16)

    Between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Italian political geography was polarized by a number of cities of different sizes and traditions: Rome and Florence, Milan and Naples, Genoa and Venice, Turin and Modena, either ancient republics or new dynastic capitals, satellites of the great European monarchies or small Signorias. The conjunction — less frequently the conflict — between the mandates of the Council of Trent and the interests of the ruling élites of those cities set the foundation for novel forms of social, cultural and spiritual control, fostering new urban structures and policies, deeply conditioned by the presence and government of the sacred.

    Pour célébrer le 75ème anniversaire de publication de la Phénoménologie de la perception, Chiasmi International prépare un dossier spécial intitulé « La phénoménologie critique après Merleau-Ponty. » Le terme de phénoménologie critique (de l’anglais critical phenomenology) dénote un important renouveau au cœur de la phénoménologique. Le terme dénote un horizon bourgeonnant de nouvelles questions et orientations inspirées par les fondateurs de la phénoménologie et cherchant à développer de nouveaux concepts et outils phénoménologiques sertis aux complexes défis éthiques et politiques du 21ème siècle. Au fil des dernières années, la phénoménologie critique a donné lieu à l’analyse interdisciplinaire de nombreux phénomènes politiques, éthiques, médicaux, économiques, et culturels, en plus de&nous inviter à reconsidérer les limites et les possibilités de la phénoménologie traditionnelle.

    “Celui qui parle, c’est aussi important !” Forms and variations of author-function in linguistics, philology, and literature

    Since the 1960s there has been much critical reflection on the figure of the author, and this has been analysed from several angles in linguistic and literary studies as well as more recent forms of web writing in the wake of the digital revolution. First, structuralism and Saussurian theory laid the groundwork for the renewal of Literary theory. The “death of the author” propounded by Barthes (1961) offered the chance to redefine the essence, the role and the status of the author. The first person to accept this challenge was Michel Foucault, during his lecture Qu’est-ce qu’un auteur? at Collège de France, on 22 February 1969. Beyond the limits of historical and ideologically connoted analysis, debate on the matter is far from settled. On the contrary, the authorial question offers food for thought in different fields of linguistics, philology and literature. If the modern concept of author called for reflection on Beckett’s provocative “qu’importe qui parle?”, even today the number of issues that can be investigated in relation to the author prove how important this is for all three aforementioned disciplines.

    Science and madness, extravagance, exception

    Alchemists, magicians, outlaw scientists in italian culture

    This volume aims at exploring the ways of science as excess and madness (see Zangrandi 2011, 2017; Garlaschelli and Carrer 2017) or, in less tragic forms, as an opportunity to explore new paths of knowledge. Another goal is to shed light on the character’s evolution, tracing the roots of a literary and cultural trope that, since the 20th century, takes on multiple configurations and plays manifold functions. Looking back to the past, this theme can be traced in the Romanticism’s rejection of the exact science and in the particular declination proposed by Leopardi in his Operette morali, or even in the disquieting image of the alchemist of the Renaissance, whose superior knowledge of natural phenomena turns into the extreme and a punishable hybris.

    Intersections. New perspectives for public humanities

    HFC-INT 2020

    The international network Humanities for Change, in accordance with the interdisciplinary spirit and the contaminatory approach that characterize its activities, intends to organize a day of study on the theme of public humanities. The meeting aims to stimulate some reflections coming from different fields of knowledge and to encourage the dialogue between researchers on the possibilities of the humanities to escape from academic circles. In this sense, the main object of study is the analysis of methodologies and tools related to knowledge dissemination practices for historical, artistic and philological-literary disciplines. Particular attention will also be given to new professional figures connected to the degree courses of the humanities faculties (such as the 'public historian') and to the interactions of these professional figures with the new media of communication and mass dissemination.

    From ritual to myth: Carnival in European culture

    D’où vient la profonde exigence sociale du carnaval et quels sont les thèmes et les motifs que cette tradition a fait émerger dans notre héritage culturel et artistique ? Du drame bouffon à la farce et à la grande tradition de la commedia dell’arte italienne, des observations de Goethe sur le carnaval de Rome aux compositions de Schumann (Carnaval, op. 9) et de Saint-Saëns (Le Carnaval des Animaux), jusqu’à la peinture de Brueghel l’Ancien, Monet, Pissarro et Elrond, le carnaval a fasciné de nombreux auteurs. Le but de ce colloque est de recueillir et de combiner des idées innovatrices pour l’analyse ou la reformulation de ce mythe, en créant un pont entre les perspectives de lecture les plus diverses dans le domaine des humanités.

    Digital work: more autonomy or a new subjugation of work?

    Socioscapes. International Journal of Societies, Politics and Cultures

    With digitisation of work a new frontier has opened up in the field of work and exploitation of work, which the current health and economic crisis is widening. The practice and the myth of “smart working” are the signs of a planetary dynamic of capitalist matrix which presents the possible liberation of labour within the framework of a new alienation and subordination of labour to the imperatives of market. Aim of this issue is to critically analyse this dynamic, paying attention to the relationship between “digital platforms” and their “applications”: alongside the intense development of digital technology, we are witnessing the expansion of different modes of intense exploitation of the workforce. Usually these new forms of work are presented as free and autonomous “services”. From these transformations processes, in which the technological element appears on the surface as prevalent on the structure of social relations that actually subsume it, important issues emerge.
