I Coloquio de Estudiantes de Posgrado sobre Desigualdades en América Latina y el Caribe

El I Coloquio de Estudiantes de Posgrado sobre Desigualdades en América Latina y el Caribe se realizará el 8 y 9 de junio en el Colegio de México (COLMEX).

Este evento tiene dos propósitos centrales. Primero, generar una plataforma de diálogo de las nuevas generaciones de investigadores(as) especializados(as) en el campo de las desigualdades. En este sentido, se apuesta por la conformación de una red de carácter latinoamericano entre estudiantes y programas de posgrado, misma que permitiría darle continuidad y seguimiento a la propuesta de intercambio. Segundo, esta iniciativa espera fortalecer la apuesta institucional que El Colegio de México viene realizando a través la Red de Estudios sobre Desigualdades.

Se tienen contemplados los siguientes ejes temáticos:

  1. Desigualdades socioeconómicas: pobreza, clases y movilidad social
  2. Políticas sociales y regímenes de bienestar
  3. Ciudades, espacios y políticas urbanas
  4. Vulnerabilidad y riesgos ambientales
  5. Mercados y relaciones laborales
  6. En clave de género
  7. Racismo, discriminación y estigma

La fecha límite para enviar postulaciones es el 1 de febrero de 2018.

Seminario Latinoamericano “Teoría y política sobre asentamientos populares”

El Seminario latinoamericano “Teoría y política sobre asentamientos populares” se realizará los días 9 y 20 de abril de 2018, organizado por INFO-HABITAT, el Instituto del Conurbano y la Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento.

Convocamos a debatir sobre la relación existente entre teoría y política y nuevas conceptualizaciones en materia de asentamientos populares, precisamente cuando a nivel latinoamericano tienen lugar importantes intervenciones socio-urbanas, se abandonan otras y algunas sufren fuertes críticas. Sin duda, se vuelve necesario realizar el esfuerzo académico teórico, a fin de contrastar e incluir los nuevos abordajes, categorías o variables que forman parte del análisis y comparecerlos con las tendencias y procesos sociales y políticos que es abordada la problemática. Es oportuno, a su vez, hacer un balance de los avances teóricos-metodológicos que se fueron dando en los espacios académicos de distintos países latinoamericanos, al tiempo que realizar un ejercicio comparativo que nos permitirá precisar en qué situación nos encontramos en relación a la resolución de la problemátic.

IV Conferência Internacional Greves

A IV Conferência Internacional Greves e Conflitos Sociais acontecerá na Universidade de São Paulo entre 10 a 13 de julho de 2018. Seu objetivo é discutir a proliferação de protestos em contextos de crise do capitalismo. Nesses contextos, a articulação entre conflitos do trabalho e outros conflitos sociais se torna mais evidente; as questões étnica, de gênero e geracional se complexificam e renovam o interesse pelas mobilizações coletivas, trazendo desafios teóricos e analíticos aos pesquisadores.

A relação entre crise e protesto não se estabelece apenas no presente, mas remonta ao passado e aponta para o futuro. De que maneira as recorrentes crises do capitalismo, que não têm apenas uma dimensão econômica, mas também política e ideológica, impactam as greves e os conflitos sociais? De que maneira afetam as relações capital-trabalho, as demandas urbanas e rurais, as identidades de gênero, étnicas, nacionais, as lutas motivadas por orientações sexuais, as questões ambientais?

Essas e outras questões podem ser discutidas a partir de diferentes áreas disciplinares e tradições teóricas, cobrindo uma diversidade de movimentos, tempos históricos e territórios distintos.

O prazo para apresentação de propostas de trabalho para os GTs e mesas redondas encerra-se em 31 de janeiro de 2018.

Grupos de Trabalho:

  1. Os protestos contra a crise econômica, política e ideológica
  2. Movimentos sociais urbanos
  3. Lutas camponesas e mobilizações rurais
  4. Identidades étnicas, nacionais e conflitos sociais
  5. Processos migratórios e conflitos sociais
  6. Orientação sexual e movimentos de identidade de gênero
  7. A emergência e a transformação do protesto em estados sociaistas
  8. Movimentos sociais e mudança política
  9. Protestos ambientalistas
  10. Conflitos do trabalho e sindicalismo

Chamada de Trabalhos.

Call for Papers- Labor, inequality, and human rights

Dedicated to interdisciplinary and critical dialogue on international human rights law and discourse, the Rapoport Center’s Working Paper Series (WPS) publishes innovative papers by established and early-career researchers as well as practitioners. The goal is to provide a productive environment for debate about human rights among academics, policymakers, activists, practitioners, and the public.

 

Authors from all disciplines and institutions are welcome to submit papers on any topic related to human rights.

For the 2017-8 series, we particularly encourage papers that explore the relationship between labor, inequality and human rights, in line with the Rapoport Center’s current thematic focus (see https://law.utexas.edu/humanrights/projects/future-of-work/).

Submissions undergo a rigorous selection process by the WPS interdisciplinary editorial committee, which includes graduate students and faculty from across the University of Texas. The WPS committee provides detailed comments and feedback to authors before the paper is published online.

 The 2017-8 Working Paper series will be published in three rounds. Those wishing to have work considered for each of these rounds should submit papers before the following deadlines:

 

Publication Round Submission Deadline
Late-Fall 2017 October 31, 2017
Early Spring 2018 December 31, 2017
Late-Spring 2018 March 31, 2017

 

Publication in the WPS does not preclude future publication elsewhere; in fact, many of our working papers have since been published in academic journals and edited volumes.

CFP: Law and Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop

CFP: Junior Scholars Law & Humanities Interdisciplinary Workshop, to be held June 4-5, 2018, at Stanford Law School

 

CALL FOR PAPERS – 2018 Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop

Columbia Law School, the University of Southern California Center for Law, History & Culture, UCLA School of Law, Georgetown University Law School, Stanford Law School, and the University of Pennsylvania invite submissions for the annual meeting of the Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop, to be held at Stanford Law School in Palo Alto, California, on June 4 and 5, 2018.

 

PAPER COMPETITION:

The paper competition is open to untenured professors, advanced graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars in law and the humanities. In addition to drawing from numerous humanistic fields, we welcome critical, qualitative work in the social sciences.  Based on anonymous evaluation by an interdisciplinary selection committee, between five and ten papers will be chosen for presentation at the June Workshop.  At the Workshop, two senior scholars will comment on each paper.  Commentators and other Workshop participants will be asked to focus specifically on the strengths and weaknesses of the selected scholarly projects, with respect to subject and methodology.  The selected papers will then serve as the basis for a larger conversation among all the participants about the evolving standards by which we judge excellence and creativity in interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as about the nature of interdisciplinarity itself.

Papers must be works-in-progress that do not exceed 15,000 words in length (including footnotes/endnotes); most papers selected for inclusion in recent years have been at least 10,000 words long.  An abstract of no more than 200 words must also be included with the paper submission.  A dissertation chapter may be submitted, but we strongly suggest that it be edited so that it stands alone as a piece of work with its own integrity.  A paper that has been submitted for publication is eligible for selection so long as it will not be in galley proofs or in print at the time of the Workshop; it is important that authors still be in a position at the time of the Workshop to consider comments they receive there and incorporate them as they think appropriate in their revisions.  We ask that those submitting papers be careful to omit or redact any information in the body of the paper that might serve to identify them, as we adhere to an anonymous or “blind” selection process.

The selected papers will appear in a special issue of the Legal Scholarship Network; there is no other publication commitment.  (We will accommodate the wishes of chosen authors who prefer not to have their paper posted publicly with us because of publication commitments to other journals.)  The Workshop will pay the domestic travel and hotel expenses of authors whose papers are selected for presentation.  For authors requiring airline travel from outside the United States, the Workshop will cover such travel expenses up to a maximum of $1000.

Submissions (in Word, no pdf files) will be accepted until January 5, 2018, and should be sent by e-mail to:  juniorscholarsworkshop@sas.upenn.edu.    Please be sure to include your name, institutional affiliation (if any), telephone and e-mail contact information in your covering email (not in the paper itself).

For more information, please send an email inquiry to juniorscholarsworkshop@sas.upenn.edu.  To see selected papers from some of the previous years’ workshops, go to: http://www.law.columbia.edu/center_program/law_culture/lh_workshop.
