En diferentes épocas y en relación con los juicios estéticos y morales de las sociedades donde se desenvolvían, los géneros y estilos musicales o dancísticos han sido documentados, categorizados, clasificados y jerarquizados.

International Conference « East-African Athletics & Social Sciences »

29th, 30th June and 01st July in the Addis Ababa University.

Although thoroughly studied by live science specialists for the last three decades, East-African athletics has seldom caught attention of social and human scientists. In the meantime, the running phenomenon has locally reached an unprecedented level of development in some areas of Kenya and Ethiopia and is now affecting numerous sectors of social life: economic development, domestic and international migrations, development of sport activities and infrastructures, inter alia. In the regions touched by this phenomenon, gender issues and participation of disabled people have also raised as relevant topics of interest. Studying East-African runners under the social science perspective also represents a break with the tradition of reducing them to their biology (genetics) or their environment (altitude), opening a new field of research on the social determinants of their performances. Considering that the social sciences, namely history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, economy, political science, etc. have not yet been enough mobilized to study this field of activity and the numerous nexus between athletics and society, the 29th, 30th June and 01st July conference in the Addis Ababa University intends to give the opportunity to junior and senior scientists from either sport sciences or social and human sciences to present communications on any subject related to East-African athletics.

British Honduras: The invention of a colonial territory. Mapping and spatial knowledge in the 19th century

British Honduras: The invention of a colonial territory. Mapping and spatial knowledge in the 19th century

By Odile Hoffmann
- A coedition of IRD (France) and Cubola Productions (Belize)
- Size: 8.5x 11
- Number of pages: 80
- 25 Colour plates
- ISBN: 978-976-8161-40-6
- Publication date: July 2014

The purpose of this monograph is not to retrace the genesis of a
nation, but more modestly, to recount the invention of a colonial
territory. No territory exists on its own; only social, political, symbolic
and emotional constructions grant it substance and reality. Through
descriptions, narratives and maps, this monograph brings the territory
into existence and displays the articulation between the collective
imaginaries, the subjectivities, and the spatial practices of the social
and political actors–political authorities, residents, cartographers–
who interacted in the territorial construction of Belize.

The 2012 French Presidential elections marked a watershed moment for the French Left, marking their return to a full term of executive power for the first time since 1981. From early in the campaign, the victory of François Hollande appeared inevitable, given the unpopularity of the Right-wing incumbent, Nicolas Sarkozy, and the economic crisis afflicting France.

The Challenge of the Threshold. Border Closures and Migration Movements in Africa

The Challenge of the Threshold. Border Closures and Migration Movements in Africa

Edited by Jocelyne Streiff-Fénart and Aurelia Segatti.

The containment policies aimed at regulating immigration flows towards Europe and emerging economies like South Africa have profoundly altered the dynamics of migration in Africa. Drawing on original empirical research, this volume explores the notion of threshold as an operative concept to envisage in turn: the discursive frameworks of containment policies, the challenges to local spaces and their equilibrium, and finally, the sense of liminality experienced by migrants caught in those situations.

International Conference: Land Policies in East Africa; Technological Innovations, Administration & Patrimonial Stakes

The Land Policies in East Africa International conference will be taking place on 2nd - 3rd - 4th November at Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda.
Many local and international researchers have documented land-related issues in East Africa and wider scientific exchanges are expected to stem from this meeting. The main aim of the conference is to present on-going research which questions common representations about land and policy-making. By analysing current and longerterm trends and changes defining access to land and policy-making and dealing with different countries in East Africa and the Indian Ocean (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Burundi, Rwanda, Madagascar, etc.), the conference will contribute to open up new perspectives.
