Photo Archives VII: The Majority World

Tue, 2019-09-17 16:26

The archive has become an object of sustained historical and theoretical investigation in recent years. The anthropological turn in photographic criticism has opened up new directions for the analysis and understanding of photo archives that complement and dialogue with more traditional Art Historical approaches focused on photographs as images; it has helped direct this growing interest towards the materiality of the photograph as object, and its social and institutional lives that unfold very often within the archival ecosystem.

Autonomy and Automation: Work in the 21st Century (Book Series)

Mon, 2019-09-09 10:05
Autonomy and Automation: Work in the 21st Century (Zed series)  The labour market has been hollowed out and the future of work lies in the shadow of political crises. Many have argued that this growing social polarisation is driven by technological change. However, research has not kept up with the speed at which these changes are occurring. Social protections for workers are being eroded across the globe and technology is arguably catalysing this trend.

CfP: Travailler sur les dossiers personnels: apports et défis, limites méthodologiques et éthiques

Mon, 2019-09-09 09:49

Utilisé dès le XIXe siècle, le dossier personnel est le résultat d’une procédure de recueil d’informations, d’enregistrement, de description et de suivi d’un individu. Cette mise en écriture de l’existence individuelle devient un moyen de contrôle et de traçabilité pour identifier des catégories de personnes et surtout fabriquer une typologie de l’hors norme, dont l’objectif peut viser la protection de l’individu et de ses droits mais aussi et surtout la protection de la société en adaptant l’intervention à la nature jugée déviante de la personne concernée.
