    International Family Migration and Normative Languages

    International Sociological Association, Congress 2018. Panel Research Committee 25, Language and Society

    Family reunification, mixed marriages and other forms of international family migration are highly politicized topics depicted as threats for national identity. In some countries, the conditions to access the family rights have been reformed complicating the processes of applications for visa, residence permit and nationality. In other countries, migrant and binational families encounter administrative and religious constraints to formalise their unions, to pass on nationality and rights to the children or simply to be socially accepted. This session explores the language employed to define family migration ‒ and the social-administrative processes that go with ‒ by politicians, media, bureaucrats, civil society actors and by family members too. The session welcomes papers from a broad empirical perspectives that explore the changing (or the persistence) of normative languages related to family migration over time.

    Social Geography of Risk: Which Approaches?

    Special session Annual Association of American Geographers Meeting

    In this session we want to focus on the definition of risk, the way this category is constructed, through which relations and which spatialities is forged. Building on real case studies, we are interested in understanding the role of geographers and social scientists when investigating the “societies at risk” and the “vulnerable” groups. Emerging issues in this area of work are related to the need to integrate environmental and social information and the fact that we have to face the implementation of complex investigations including among others: environmental measures, descriptive epidemiology, analytical studies, social surveys and GIS modeling.

    Le mur en relations internationales

    La fin de la Guerre froide a été marquée par la chute du mur de Berlin, l’essor sans précédent de la mondialisation, la libéralisation des échanges, la promotion de la libre circulation des produits, des personnes et des capitaux. L’avènement d’un monde où, selon la littérature, l’État devenait second en relations internationales et où la mobilité devait constituer le nouveau cadre d’analyse du système mondial, doublé de l’obsolescence de la souveraineté et, ce faisant, de la disparition des frontières physiques ne laissaient en rien préfigurer du retour du « mur » qui, après 2001, est réapparu avec comme un instrument clé de la protection de la souveraineté étatique. Depuis la Grande muraille de Chine, le mur d’Antonin ou celui d’Hadrien réalisé par les Romains, le Genkobori construit par les Japonais sur l’île de Kyushu, ou encore le Mur de Berlin durant la période contemporaine, le « mur » est une des clés constantes – en Orient comme en Occident – de la protection d’une entité constituée et souveraine.

    Citizenship and Ethnicity

    Development studies are increasingly focused on democratization and the relationship between state power and issues of identity. Local communities and identity groups – ethnic, national, indigenous, religious - continuously struggle to negotiate their relations with the state and with each other in ways that may challenge conventional or legal definitions of citizenship. Collective identities may certainly exacerbate struggles between groups, but they may also create linkages, thus becoming both embedded in and inseparable from the democratization process. Increasingly, the quality of democracy is linked to inclusive citizenship regimes. These involve individual rights, but also a collectively defined “common good.” In divided societies both elements are problematic.

    L’histoire du maintien de la paix : nouvelles perspectives

    Les opérations de maintien de la paix canadiennes, mais aussi mondiales, ont connu une grande évolution depuis 1956. Les historiens, se basant sur les documents maintenant disponibles,  se penchent sur l’histoire des opérations et proposent de nouvelles perspectives et analyses concernant ses origines, sa chronologie, ses succès et ses échecs. Si l’expression « maintien de la paix » est contestée aujourd’hui, son histoire nous amène à réfléchir sur l’apport du maintien de la paix dans l’histoire militaire et politique du Canada, comme dans celle des autres pays participants ou ayant été l’objet d’opérations de cette nature sur son territoire.

    Borders, walls and violence

    Costs and Alternatives to Border Fencing

    More border walls and border fences are being built every year all across the world. Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Morocco, and Tunisia are among the latest to announce yet another border fence. Twenty-five years ago it was believed that the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reconfiguration of international relations would open an age of globalization in which States would become obsolete, ushering in a world without borders. In the wake of 9/11, however, borders came back in light, new borders were created and new border walls erected. In the wake of the Arab Spring, came even more border barriers and walls, symbols that were thought to have disappeared with the collapse of the bipolar international system. Today, they reinforce borderlines the world over, transforming both soft and semi-permeable borders alike into sealed, exclusionary hard borders. Walls are symbols of identity reaffirmation, markers of State sovereignty, instruments of dissociation, locus of a growing violence.

    Rejuvenating politics? Student politics and the history of youth’s political selves in South Asia

    UW Madison conference (October 2018)

    By drawing attention to the historical formation of both master narratives and counter claims developed by educated youth in the postcolonial period, the panel explores the relevance of campus spaces in the fashioning of political selves. After partition, many scholars regretted that students’ ‘movement’ had given way to sporadic, dispersed ‘agitations’, focused primarily on campus issues. Instead of dismissing group-based demands as ‘parochial’, or looking at students’ dispersion as a problem, this panel proposes to explore the myriad ways in which student politics supported, challenged or re-interpreted mainstream understandings of South Asian societies.

    Participatory Media and Moral Panic

    Panel on "Participatory Media and Moral Panic" at the Social Media and Society conference

    The transformation of the media landscape invites us to rethink the dialectic between "media" and "moral panic", by focusing on the ways in which participatory media enables the public’s participation in moral panic. The coproduction of moral panic, via media participation, can be analyzed to document how individuals, through their relational links, trigger, maintain and propagate moral panic or how these forms of moral regulation affect sociability, notably those stigmatized by the controversial subject. This may also allow the study of how mediatization of social relations, stemming from participatory media, leads to renegotiating a number of democratic balances. These include the relationship between private and public spheres as well as the role of publics in constituting collective dynamics, such as the formation of public problems.
