blue_bhop Programme

Exorcisme ? Mantra chorégraphique ? Mandala sonore ? Deux danseuses, une musicienne, un acteur s’aventurent au-delà d’eux-mêmes et nous dévoilent peu à peu la lumière des forces régénératrices. La catastrophe industrielle de Bhopal (1984) n’a cessé de hanter les esprits, imprimant durablement sa marque au cœur même de l’Inde. Comment dire l’indicible de la terreur, ces « cortèges de fantômes », ces « océans de feu » ? De cet abîme sans fond, Bhopal Blue se risque à extraire une sorte de grâce. Entre rituel de purification et remontée des enfers, cette œuvre emblématique s’attache à montrer le vrai visage de l’Inde : vivante, vibrante, révoltée – et plus spirituelle que jamais.  cation et remontée des enfers, cette œuvre emblématique s’attache à montrer le vrai visage de l’Inde : vivante, vibrante, révoltée – et plus spirituelle que jamais.

Social Sciences Winter School in Pondicherry: « Mobility and Social Dynamics » / November 28 to December 2, 2016

Social Sciences Winter School in Pondicherry: « Mobility and Social Dynamics » / November 28 to December 2, 2016Winter_school_illustration[Download the call for applications here]

The Social Sciences Winter School in Pondicherry has been designed as a programme of intensive and multidisciplinary training workshops addressing theoretical and methodological issues in social sciences research.

Themes

Each edition of the Winter School is based on a cross-cutting theme in the field of social sciences, taken as a guideline throughout the training workshop. For the 2016 Edition, the following theme has been chosen: “Mobility and Social Dynamics”.

The specific topics addressed encompass: spatial and social mobility, circulation, international migration, diaspora and the homeland, gender, survey design, data collection and analysis.

Three parallel workshops will be coordinated by international teams of academics, with specific themes:

Workshop 1.   Documenting Processes of Spatial Mobility: Qualitative and Ethnographic Approaches

Workshop 2.   Using Survey Data to Understand Social and Geographical Mobility

Workshop 3.   Social Mobility in its Indian Complexity: Conceptual and Methodological Dynamics

Schedule

During five consecutive days, the Winter School will be organised around two poles:

–         plenary sessions (one day, lectures by senior academics) presenting state of the art, overview of theoretical and methodological issues on a particular research topic;

–         methodological and disciplinary workshops (three full days, three workshops à la carte for small groups) devoted to tutorials: theoretical models, text analysis, survey methods and data collection, data analysis, etc.

The training will end with a one-day knowledge and project restitutions and the delivery of certificates to participants.

 Participants

The Winter School is open to Doctoral and Master Students of all fields in social sciences. Trainees will be selected on the basis of their qualifications, while taking into account the value of the training with regards to their research or professional projects.

The teams of trainers will be multidisciplinary and international, composed of young and senior researchers originating from several Indian universities and research centres of excellence, as well as from abroad. It is the result of a long-lasting Indo-French collaboration between Pondicherry University and the French Institute in Pondicherry, as well as with CNRS, IRD and EHESS in France.

Venue

The training will take place at Pondicherry University (School of Social Sciences and International Studies, Silver Jubilee Campus) and at the French Institute of Pondicherry (IFP), from November 28 to December 2, 2016.

INSCRIPTION

Abstract

This talk examines the laws, paperwork and protocols of colonial preventive’ policing. In the reconstruction of rule after the 1857 rebellion in India, a dual but intersecting pathway emerged for dealing with those suspected of habituality in crime: the bad livelihood provisions of the Criminal Procedure code and the Criminal Tribes Act of 1871. The first involved a judicial proceeding, not a trial for a specific offence. On the basis of evidence of ‘general repute or otherwise a magistrate could demand ‘security for good behaviour’. Failure to provide this security, could result in jail terms ranging from a year to three years and long term liability thereafter to police surveillance. Under the Criminal Tribes Act there was no reference to the courts at all. To bring a particular community or a section of it under the operation of the Criminal Tribes Act a provincial government had to declare that its members persisted in non-bailable crimes .This resulted in a regime of roll-calls, surveillance and forced restriction to a locality. In contrast therefore to the English Habitual Offender Act (1869) and the Prevention of Crime Act (1871) which focussed mainly on the ex- convict, these provisions created an immensely more flexible and wide-ranging field for police surveillance.

‘Habituality’ in crime became the subject of debate and discussion in India at the same time that the figure of the recidivist began to dominate anxieties about crime in Britain and and Europe. I have suggested that similarities and comparisons should be drawn, not by focusing on the Criminal Tribes Act alone, but by examining the construction of habituality in the general law as well and in the institutional context of the jail. Yet I conclude by suggesting that in the aftermath of World War one it was indeed the Criminal Tribes Settlement, which along with borstals for juveniles, allowed the colonial regime to claim a treatment- oriented dimension for its police and penal regime and to place itself in the current of international discussions about penal reform.

Art and cinema industries in India : Norms, workers and territories – May 6th 2016, KNMA

« The Other Thought French-Indian Encounters on Creativity and Innovation »

presents the international workshop

Art and cinema industries in India : Norms, workers and territories

6th May, 2016
at the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Saket, New Delhi

[Program available in pdf]

WORKSHOP ART AND CINEMA INDUSTRIES _FLYER

The participation of cultural industries to sustainable development has been increasingly acknowledged in the past decades and the necessity to bring forward its potentials in India is urgent. The question of Indian cultural industries, policy and economy remains hardly addressed despite a contribution estimated to 30% of employment and 14% of the country GDP. The abysmal lack of official statistics on the cultural industries pointed out ten years ago by the Taskforce for Creative and Cultural Industry (2006) as not been filled. Workers and territories are emerging from behind veils of unrecognition while international laws are becoming more accurate. More broadly, there is a lack of understanding of the social, political and economic role that cultural industries can play in the development the country and in South Asia.

In the line of recent studies on norms and standardization process in cultural industries (Bouquillion et al. 2013), this workshop explores the articulation between norms and cultural industries in the Indian globalization context. The two sectors at the heart of the analysis will be cinema and visual arts. Among the issues that will be discussed: to what extent have these standards transformed the activities related to visual arts and cinema? Who are the actors producing these norms, working for their implementation or adaptation ? How to take into account the importance of informal system in the production and distribution of cultural goods? What are the conflicts and forms of resistance encountered with the local socio-economic realities? The aim of this workshop is to shed light on the evolution and impact of norms in cultural policies, on art workers and local territories, the integration the informal systems, and tensions with socio-economic realities.

This workshop will bring together specialists in policy making, economics, cultural industries, art market and professionals from the art and film industries. The objectives are to boost awareness, research and proactive policy development for cultural industries in India as encouraged in the Jodpur Initiatives. In a long term perspective, the intent is to strengthen Indo-French scientific cooperation on cultural industry research and enhance a transdisciplinary, international and interprofessionnal research group on cultural industries, policy and economy in India.
