Transdisciplinary  perspectives,  training  and  methodological  dialog      


The   Seminar   for   Young   Americanists   (JJA-­‐Les   Journées   des   Jeunes   Américanistes)   is   organized   by   the   Center   for   Mexican   and   Central   American   Studies   of   the   French   Ministry,  the  International  Mixed  Unity  of  the  CNRS  (UMI-­‐Unité  Mixte  Internationale)  –   IGLOBES  and  the  French  Institutes  of  Andean  Studies.  

The  following  partners  are  also  involved  in  the  JJA:  the  Franco-­‐Mexican  College  for  the   Social   Sciences   (Central   American   Extension),   the   French   Institute   of   Central   America,   the  French  Institute  of  Latin  America,  the  Research  Institute  for  Development  (IRD)  and   the  Institute  for  Americas.  

This  annual  seminar  creates  a  space  for  theoretical  and  methodological  dialogue  within   an   international   scientific   network.   It   is   a   working   space   for   bachelor,   masters   and   doctoral  students.  

The   first   JJA   seminar   took   place   on   June   21-­‐22,   2010.   It   was   co-­‐organized   with   the   Mexican  National  Institute  of  Anthropology  and  History  (ENAH).  Although  the  seminar   gave   priority   to   archeologists,   the   selected   theme   “spatial   dynamics”   was   interdisciplinary.   The   second   seminar   on   “mobilities”   took   place   on   June   20-­‐22,   2011   and  was  open  to  all  social  sciences.  The  third  seminar  on  “territories”  took  place  on  June   13-­‐15,  2012  in  Costa  Rica  with  the  support  of  the  University  of  Costa  Rica  and  CONACYT.  

The   fourth   seminar   was   held   in   Guatemala   with   the   support   of   the   Facultad   and   the   University  of  San  Carlos.  

The  fifth  edition  will  take  place  in  Tijuana,  Mexico,  in  partnership  with  El  Colegio   de  la  Frontera  Norte.  

The   objective   of   this   Thematic   School   is   to   describe   and   make   available   the   contributions  of  researchers  in  the  field  of  environmental  studies  in  the  Americas   to   researchers   in   the   human   and   social   sciences   in   France,   especially   in   terms   of   methodological,  conceptual  and  epistemological  innovations.  The  interdisciplinary  basis   of   the   seminar   brings   into   dialogue   multiple   researchers   and   tools   from   all   the   social  


sciences.   Participation   of   Americanist   and   Latin   Americanist   students   is   strongly     encouraged.   In   this   upcoming   seminar,   young   researchers   are   invited   to   discuss   their   work  within  methodological  workshops  leaded  by  invited  experts.  The  JJA  will  be  held   this  year  as  a  thematic  school  of  the  CNRS  thanks  to  the  work  of  the  UMI  EGlobes  of  the   CNRS.  


The  issues      

1) Introducing   environmental   studies   from   the   Americas,   in   all   their   wealth   and   diversity,  to  French  researchers  and  students  


Environmental   research   in   the   Americas   is   marked   by   a   multidisciplinary   approach,   including   as   it   does   studies   carried   out   in   North   America   on   the   uses   of   water   and   environmental   justice,   and   programs   developed   in   South   America   on   the   spatial   and   cultural  aspects  of  environmental  change.  In  France,  environmental  issues  have,  with  the   exception  of  environmental  history  and  organizational  studies  on  the  provision  of  water   in   urban   networks,   received   relatively   little   attention   from   researchers   in   the   human   and   social   sciences.   The   aim   of   the   Thematic   School   is   to   encourage   dialog   between   French   and   American   researchers   working   on   the   effects   of   climate   change   on   populations   and   territories,   as   well   as   the   effects   of   the   social   occupation   and   use   of   geographical  space  on  environmental  contexts.      


The  Colegio  de  La  Frontera  Norte,  renowned  research  Centre  located  in  the  field  of   social  sciences  and  environmental  studies,  stands  as  an  ideal  place  to  organize  such   an  interdisciplinary  and  international.    


2) The  strength  of  a  structured  group  open  to  the  scientific  community      

The  Young  Americanists’  Days  workshop  is  an  annual  event  dedicated  to  discussion  and   debate   on   the   development   of   research   and   methodology   amongst   young   researchers,   graduate   students   and   first   degree   students   working   in   the   Americas.   The   Young   Americanists’   Days   is   supported   by   the   UMIFRE   (CEMICA   and   IFEA)   CNRS/MAEE   centers.  Organized  by  the  CEMCA  (Centro  de  Estudios  Mexicanos  y  Centroamericanos),   the  Young  Americanists’  Days  has  been  held  annually  since  2010,  first  in  Mexico,  then  in   Costa  Rica  and,  last  year,  in  Guatemala.  On  every  occasion  the  event  has  been  attended   by   over   30   students.   The   fourth   edition,   set   to   be   held   in   Tijuana   in   2014,   will   be   dedicated   to   strengthening   ties   between   researchers   in   North   America   and   their   counterparts  in  Central  and  South  America.  


3) The  School’s  scientific  objectives:  sharing  knowledge  about  the  environment    

This   Thematic   School   will   provide   an   opportunity   to   strengthen   scientific   ties   with   institutions   throughout   the   Americas   by   fostering   a   joint   approach   to   environmental   issues   (water,   energy,   etc.).   Emphasizing   adaptation   to   climate   change   is   of   great   relevance  in  terms  of  the  ecological  situation  of  Americas.    

This  year’s  objectives  are  to  provide  additional  knowledge  about  questions  concerning   climate  change  from  the  points  of  view  of  both  the  environmental  and  social  sciences,   and   to   examine   climate   change   not   only   in   terms   of   ecological   sustainability,   but   also  




from  the  perspective  of  social  and  economic  transformations.  Different  workshops  will   take  place  with  the  following  topics:  


Workshop  1:  Understanding  climate  change  in  order  to  adapt  to  its  effects  

This   workshop   is   informed   by   a   strong   methodological   aspect   focusing   on   the   measurement   of   climate   change   and   its   effect   on   populations   and   territories.   The   workshop  applies  developments  made  in  the  Americas  in  the  natural  and  environmental   sciences   with   a   view   to   introducing   them   to   French   social   scientists.   (Adaptation   scenarios,  Eco  systemic  services,  Smart  Grid  and  networks  analysis).  


Workshop  2:  Environmental  conflicts  in  the  Americas  

The   many   environmental   conflicts   that   have   taken   place   in   North   and   South   America   since  the  19th  century  have  been  the  object  of  numerous  studies  that,  in  France,  have   received  little  attention,  overshadowed  as  they  have  been  by  more  traditional  research   on  other  parts  of  the  USA  (for  obscured  as  they  have  been  by  more  traditional  studies  on   other  parts  of  the  USA  (for  example,  the  work  of  the  Chicago  School  on  urban  ecology).  

(Water  Wars  in  the  Americas,  historic  Sociology  of  the  West  US,  Archeology  and  heritage   preservation)  


Workshop  3:  Environmental  justice  and  the  management  of  urban  risks  

In  the  1980s,  in  the  wake  of  social  struggles  led  by  ethnic  minorities  against  the  burial  of   waste   in   poor   neighborhoods,   researchers   in   the   United   States   and   Canada   began   to   produce   an   increasing   number   of   studies   on   environmental   justice.   When,   later,   they   took   an   interest   in   this   field   of   research,   academics   in   Europe   tended   to   focus   on   ecological   inequalities,   carrying   out   relatively   few   studies   on   the   links   between   the   spatial   distribution   of   environmental   risks   and   the   socio-­‐economic   situation   of   the   populations   exposed   to   those   risks.   (Sociological   approaches   of   environmental   justice,   Environmental  risks  in  urban  environments,  anthropology  of  disasters  and  migrations)    

Transversal   workshop   (for   the   attention   of   young   researchers)   –   Managing   research  projects  

Managing   research   projects   is   an   ephemeral   and   generally   complex   task   involving   a   wide  range  of  resources  (human,  material,  organizational),  technical  skills  (in  terms  of   legal,  regulatory  and  financial  aspects)  and  costs  defined  in  a  budget.  From  the  reception   of   the   call   for   offer   to   the   conclusion   of   the   program,   the   management   of   a   scientific   project   requires   specific   skills   (and   thus   training   programs)   to   meet   institutional   demand   and   statutory   regulations,   while   at   the   same   time   ensuring   that   research   remains  autonomous.  The  workshop  will  benefit  from  the  presence  of  researchers  who   have  obtained  research  contracts  in  the  United  States,  Central  America  and  Europe  and   who  will  be  able  to  share  their  experiences  and  expertise  with  graduate  students  at  JJA   2014.  

The  JJA  2014  will  turn  on  methodological  workshops  and  discussion  next  2,  3  and  4th  of   July  in  Tijuana.  



Proposals  may  be  submitted  in  French,  Spanish  or  English.  We  encourage  participants  to   focus   on   some   methodological   aspect   of   their   work   as   well   as   the   ways   in   order   to   generate  transdisciplinary  discussion.  The  candidates  should  join  a  detailed  cover  letter  


as  well  as  their  doctoral,  Master  or  Research  thesis  project,  in  two  pages.  The  following     information   has   to   figure   on   these   documents:   name,   surname,   discipline,   institution,   diploma  and  country.  

The   cover   letters   and   projects   must   be   sent   in   word   format   by   e-­mail   to   jja.cemca@gmail.com,   before  April   30   2014.   The   result   of   the   selection   will   be   published  on  May  7  2014.
