Le pétrole, entre nationalismes et régionalismes
Mercredi 24 septembre 2014 | Études du politique | Colloque | Paris (75013)
Les problématiques liées à l’extraction des hydrocarbures sont peu traitées ou maltraitées par les sciences sociales, en particulier à propos des pays en développement. Il apparaît donc nécessaire d’affiner des analyses qui sont trop souvent orientées par des présupposés déterministes ou idéologiques telles que la malédiction pétrolière (oil curse) ou la maladie hollandaise (dutch disease). Dans une perspective comparatiste et pluridisciplinaire qui a pour ambition de croiser les regards des anthropologues, des sociologues, des politologues, des économistes et des géographes, ce colloque vise ainsi à enrichir la réflexion en conviant des spécialistes de plusieurs pays à parler de cas d’études comme l’Irak, le Nigeria, l’Algérie, le golfe Arabo-Persique, la Colombie, le Venezuela, le Mexique, la Libye, etc.

Soi, l’autre et l’ailleurs : images et imaginaires des villes portuaires de l’Europe atlantique et méditerranéenne (XVIIIe-XXIe siècle)
Dimanche 12 octobre 2014 | Europe | Appel à contribution | Bordeaux (33)
Ce colloque international s'intéresse à l'histoire des représentations des villes portuaires de l'Europe atlantique et de la Méditerranée du XVIIIe siècle à nos jours. La relation entre ville et port – nous traiterons ici exclusivement des ports maritimes – ne va pas de soi selon les types d'activités et les époques. Le rapport des sociétés urbaines à l'espace et aux activités portuaires a en effet pu varier d'intensité et de nature et la longue période considérée permet d'envisager des phases de développement de l'activité, de déclin et de restructuration urbaine. Les quais sont à cet égard la ligne de contact entre ville et port qui portent le plus la trace de ces transformations. En outre, la ville portuaire est dans son « identité », particulièrement tributaire des rapports entretenus avec l'extérieur, les autres peuples, les autres mondes. On analysera aussi bien le regard qu'elle porte sur elle-même, que le regard qui est porté sur elle depuis l'extérieur, on envisagera également sa perception de l'autre (migrants, touristes...) et des mondes lointains. Des sources variées pourront être mobilisées : artistiques, littéraires, administratives, orales, écrites, photographiques, radiophoniques, cinématographiques, télévisuelles, numériques, etc.

Les villes du monde arabe
Jeudi 23 octobre 2014 | Études urbaines | Colloque | Paris (75004)
Les révolutions de 2011 ont porté au devant de la scène la centralité des villes arabes dans les évolutions en cours. En révolte, détruite ou recomposée, la ville est un observatoire original et pertinent des grandes mutations sociales, économiques et culturelles que traverse une société. Où se situe aujourd’hui la ville arabe sur la toile des villes du monde ? Issue d’une riche construction historique, comment fait-elle face aux nouveaux défis et à l’émergence dans l’aire arabe d’une citoyenneté ? Dès lors, l’ambition de ce colloque est d’analyser l’ensemble de l’aire géographique, dans sa diversité, depuis le centre d’observation que constituent ses cités.
http://calenda.org/298533

La fabrique des lieux de désir
Lundi 3 novembre 2014 | Géographie | Appel à contribution | Genève
Comment un lieu touristique est-il imaginé, produit et pratiqué comme un lieu érotique ? Ce colloque vise à explorer comment certains lieux peuvent être fabriqués, transformés ou investis par les imaginaires et les pratiques érotiques des touristes. Il ne s’agit bien sûr pas d’essentialiser l’érotisme des lieux, mais de saisir les processus (géographiques, historiques, culturels, économiques, etc.) de leur érotisation, d’en identifier les logiques, les acteurs et les conséquences. L’enjeu de ce colloque est de tenter de mieux comprendre le tourisme, dans toute la variété de ses formes, en questionnant l’érotisation des lieux. Les destinations privilégiées du tourisme sexuel comptent parmi ces lieux érotisés, mais il en existe bien d’autres.
