COMPTE-RENDU DE COLLOQUE / CONFERENCE REPORT

Displacements in Ethiopia: Report of the conference organized by the French Center in 2018 

By Anais Maro & Constance Perrin-Joly

 

The 2018 SCA Biennial Meeting, cosponsored by the Society for Visual Anthropology,  was an innovative conference talking about displacements all over the world without any movement of the participants and speakers. 1,300 people had participated from over 40 countries, screening video panels within local nodes for half of them. According to the organizers, the virtual platform saved more than 425 tons of carbon emissions, as much as taking 11,500 cars off the road for three days.

In this context, the 20th of April 2018, the French Center for Ethiopian Studies has organized a local node hosting 40 people at the Bellevue Hotel, coming from Ethiopian Universities, United Nations, African Union, or NGOs.

Terrains et chercheurs sous surveillance, (auto) contrôle, (auto) censure et mise en administration des sciences sociales

By Anais Maro & Constance Perrin-Jolly

[In French]

Les laboratoires LAMES, CHERPA et l’Ifre IREMAM se sont associés pour organiser un colloque sur la surveillance de la recherche dans l’enceinte de l’Université d’Aix-Marseille les 17 et 18 juin 2018. 10 ans après le colloque organisé à Limoges « Enquêter, de quel droit ? », il s’agissait de s’interroger sur les obstacles que rencontre le chercheur dans sa liberté et son autonomie professionnelle. Comme il est d’usage en sciences sociales, les participants (sociologues, anthropologues, politistes…) étaient invités à retourner les outils de l’objectivation scientifique sur leurs propres conditions et pratiques de travail. Les questions posées étaient multiples : quels autres métiers interfèrent avec celui de chercheur ? Quels sont les effets de la rationalisation institutionnelle sur nos pratiques professionnelles ? Mais aussi comment réaliser une enquête dans des espaces « sous surveillance » en France (prison, aires d’accueil des gens du voyage, police, justice…) ou à l’étranger (Palestine, Jordanie, Egypte…).

Ce fut l’occasion pour nous de présenter deux communications sur deux versants de la surveillance : celle qui émane d’un terrain d’une part, et celle qui est le fait de nos propres institutions d’autre part.

Megalithic Landscape: First Abaya archaeological mission

TERRAIN / FIELDWORK

First Abaya archaeological mission

(Gedeo, SNNPR; Guji, Oromia)

January 11-25, February 20 – March 10, 2018

by Vincent Ard & Anne-Lise Goujon

 

The region east of Lake Abaya is renowned for its numerous megalithic sites (over 130 have been inventoried so far) but little is known about their chronology and their function. Previous research there had revealed great technological and stylistic variability of megalithic monuments and the existence of possible distinct chronological phases. In order to fill numerous gaps in our understanding of the megalithic societies of this region, an archaeological mission was led during winter 2018 by Vincent Ard (CNRS, TRACES) and Anne-Lise Goujon (Université Paris 10, PréTech), with the support of the Cfee and the French Embassy.
