SAFE - Social Awareness For Environment in Estarreja

Inscrit dans la thématique Évolution des rapports entre société et environnement, sous le volet Recherche participative (modifications des comportements et perception de l'information disponible en matière d'environnement) du Labex Driihm (Dispositif de Recherche International Interactions Hommes Milieux) – INEE (Institut Environnement et Écologie du CNRS), SAFE consiste en une recherche interdisciplinaire menée en interaction avec la population d'Estarreja (Portugal). Elle repose sur trois volets : des ateliers de mesures des pollutions avec des adolescents dans le cadre de leur cours de biologie au lycée ; des réunions de sensibilisation à l’environnement et à la sécurité avec des acteurs de la protection civile ; et des entretiens avec des habitants utilisateurs de la terre et de l’eau contaminées, (agriculteurs avec production agricole ou laitière, simples habitants avec potagers), dont certaines personnes âgées aux pratiques inscrites dans le temps long sur l’espace considéré. L’objectif est un enregistrement des savoirs et pratiques concernant les usages et les connaissances en matière d’environnement contaminé, sur un support audio, vidéo et photographique, en vue du montage d’un film pouvant être présenté à la population (pour de plus amples détails, voir le premier projet collectif 2016 Risques, perceptions et histoires de vie : approche socio-anthropologique du contexte Estarreja/Aveiro).

With the cluster’s own dynamics and lines of inquiry as a starting point, this project proposes to form a collective of academics, researchers, administrative personnel, university students, and municipal and associated partners to provide the voices of the history of Nanterre’s university (campus, institution, intellectual history) and its relationship to the region. Simultaneously, this requires, prior to the research, the invention of both the mediation along an urban circuit and ad hoc mobile, digital systems.

Attuned to the problematic elements of a history of the present (issues of oral history, of access to diffused archival sources, and of the role of the historical actors themselves in the writing of this history), this interdisciplinary project draws from a common research protocol: common  guide, at least partial, studies on the appropriations of the past at each stage of the project; critical approach to the history in the making, notably via a monthly workshop and a blog; annual report…. For its first year, the project coincides with the university’s fiftieth anniversary.

The Birth of French Ethnology: Ethnographic Missions in Sub-Saharan Africa (1928-1939)

In partnership with Labex Les passés dans le présent (2012-2020), the National Library of France, and the Quai Branly Museum, the LESC created a website portal about the ethnographic missions conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa between 1929 and 1939. These first ethnographic missions to Africa marked in France the beginnings of field ethnology and the birth of the discipline. These events, the actors on these missions, and the historical context will appear first on this portal. The introductory texts will be accompanied by maps and illustrated by collections of iconographic archival documents. The first set is for a wide audience interested by the subject. For a more scholarly use, the different sources of information on these missions (archival collections, photographs, fieldwork artifacts) will be localized, indicated, and described. An inventory will be taken of the publications from these different missions and, whenever possible, made available in their entirety. 

The complementarity of the archival, documentary, and museum resources conserved in the three institutions, especially concerning the Dakar-Djibouti Mission, and the promotional experiences make this collaboration both natural and necessarily fruitful.
With its focus on questions of promotion, online publishing, and restitution, this portal especially seeks an alternative solution to the systematic and complete putting online of fieldwork data, once it is digitized, which would infringe on the rights of the ethnographers and their subjects. The collections will consist of documents carefully and ethically selected. Some of them will be made available to a photo sharing site, such as Flickr, for a wider distribution and commentary. We wish to encourage and collect reactions from scholars, artists, and from the more general public, especially from the countries originally studied by those missions. The portal will thus allow for experimentation with a mode of promotion and restitution of “sensitive” archives while respecting ethical principles, in collaboration with several audiences.

Indigenous Wayana- Apalaí knowledge – A new approach to restitution and its implications for forms of transmission

The goal of this project is the empowerment and restitution to the Wayanas and Apalaís of sound, film, and photographic collections documenting the knowledge of these indigenous people of Guyana. The project also proposes a reflection on restitution practices and their impact on the transmission of “traditional” knowledge. Its originality lies with the central role accorded the studied populations – a Wayana-Apalaí team is actively participating in the conception of the portal (the tool of restitution) as well as defining selections, modalities of analysis, and conditions of access to the data.

Responding to local demand, the project includes collaboration with the Wayanas and Apalaís on a book documenting an important body of ritual chants and a study of Wayana museum collections, particularly those of the Quai Branly Museum, which holds ancient ritual objects referenced in the chants. The Amerindian Ethnological Teaching and Research Center is leading programs to develop audiovisual collections in collaboration with the societies being studied and this project will integrate the creation of modes of interactive distribution of synchronized sound and text along with multimedia links to texts and objects. The project unites domestic cluster partners (Laboratory of Ethnology and Comparative Sociology, Quai Branly Museum) with those in Guyana, Germany, and Brazil.
