In French-speaking Belgium, a decree on the training of teachers specifies a set of objectives and of attitudes that must be aimed by any didactic device designed to prepare them for their future job. This set is largely dictated by the model of the "reflective practitioner" able to "have reflective regards to his practice" in order to adapt the way he teaches to the classroom circumstances by a "back and forth" between theory and practice. Two case studies at the upper secondary level, concerning the biological sciences and the mathematics, allow us to point out knowledge related to the epistemology of the concerned knowledge, whose lack of control, by the students-teachers in initial formation, prevents them to be reflexive in choosing a teaching method and especially feeding it appropriately. Looking at reflexivity, we examine here the concept of cross-curricular competence and its "sensitivity" to more strictly disciplinary knowledge, hoping to add elements into the current debate on this subject whether it is about disciplinary learning or teachers training.

According to Jennifer A. Peeples, the “toxic sublime” refers to “the tensions that arise from recognizing the toxicity of a place, object or situation, while simultaneously appreciating its mystery, magnificence and ability to inspire awe”. As an alternative to the “technological sublime”, which creates awe through the contemplation of human efforts to master the environment, it urges us to consider the negative and noxious aspects of such endeavours. Through her analysis of Edward Burtynsky’s “Manufactured Landscapes”, Peeples introduces a new form of sublime aesthetics, which may also be used as a valuable trope in the study of the relationship between literature and our physical environment. My goal in this study is to extend such considerations to the recent history of American literature, using examples such as Rachel Carson’s “A Fable for Tomorrow” (1962), which describes the invisible “lethal film” made of “systemic insecticides” that converts natural species into carcinogenic poison, thus depicting landscapes as intoxicated “places of beauty” that no longer symbolise human abilities to dominate the environment but rather their lack of control over it. Likewise, in Don DeLillo’s novel White Noise (1985), the protagonist Jack Gladney experiences his daughter’s “utterance” of the car brand “Toyota Celica” as “beautiful and mysterious”, which “str[ikes] [him] with the impact of a moment of splendid transcendence”. Gladney then proceeds to relate his family’s “garbage” to his relatives’ selves as it is a “sign[] of [their] deepest nature”. Jack’s approach to human waste shows that what Cynthia Deitering defines as the “toxic consciousness”—the general awareness of the existence of toxicity in the landscape—is to be associated with the protagonist’s idea of “consumer consciousness”. Indeed, the term toxicity can also metaphorically refer to the “poisoned” nature of our relationship to and perception of specific places, objects, or situations. The viewer in national parks, for instance, tends to see the “sublime landscape” as a “series of picturesque scenes”, which allows him to consume the scene as an “object of artistic consumption”. Such examples point to different but related ways of examining distinct forms of toxicity that characterise our relationship with our physical environment. They also prompt us to examine the problematic nature of technology and progress while dealing with the elusive and paradoxical nature of the technological sublime. [less ▲]

Philosophical pragmatism has seen a revival within the sociological discourse. We bring three strands of this approach into direct dialogue with one another. Anglophone and German scholars have brought pragmatists such as George Herbert Mead back to the forefront of our understandings of social action. In a parallel development, scholars such as Alfred Schütz incorporated Husserlian phenomenology with American pragmatism, reinforcing a specific micro-interactionist model. In Francophone sociology, Luc Boltanski and Laurent Thévenot challenged the hegemonic structuralist approach in the 1980s by developing their own pragmatic framework. In this synthetic review, we illustrate why this recent French pragmatic sociology adds interesting cultural, sociological and psychological dimensions to the American pragmatic and to phenomenological lineages. We then show how these innovations provide a richer understanding of the interaction between individuals and institutions and provide a way to understand something American pragmatists and phenomenological sociologists often struggle to engage with: social conflict.

In addition to have a direct and positive impact on reducing of food insecurity and poverty gaps in more vulnerable countries to shocks on the rainfall, the remittances received by the migrants families also allow them to have saving. This is what reveals the self-managed village banks of Kayes’ region, the most important emigration basin of Mali and located in strong climate variations area. However, this saving contributes less at agricultural sector finance. [less ▲]

This chapter discusses sending states’ concerns for the well-being of citizens abroad. Using the concept of transnationalism, I will first discuss the historical evolution of sending’s states involvement in emigration decisions and their relations with citizens residing abroad members of the diaspora. Second, focusing on a trend of the literature on “diaspora policies”, I will demonstrate that —while sending states most frequently develop economic and political programmes towards citizens— diaspora policies now increasingly include welfare. This, I argue in the third part of the chapter, contributes to transnationalization of welfare. Developing the concept of transnational social protection from below and from above, I show that immigrants’ access to social protection goes beyond welfare policies adopted by receiving states but also include numerous sending states policies as well as informal strategies developed by immigrants together with market, community and family actors. Finally, this chapter concludes with a discussion on the implications of sending states involvements in expatriates’ welfare for future research on migration. [less ▲]

Many significant intellectual developments have taken place in 20th century European social theories. Notably the first Frankfurt School and Bourdieu’s work have successfully shown how workers, social actors, etc. are alienated or dominated by capitalist social structures. But according to Habermas, neither perspective successfully allows for the possibility that people could contribute to their own emancipation. The emergence of new forms of social resistance to domination such as those embodied by the Indignados, Anonymous, Femen, the practitioners of alternative economy, movements of unemployed people or illegals compels us to envisage the possibility for emancipation, but how? In this paper we explore opportunities for accounting for this by considering the work of a range of other European social theorists, more specifically Boltanski whose critical intent is embodied in his pragmatic sociology, and evident in his coining and use of the concept of the world. In addition we will consider Latour’s own pragmatic stance as we believe that despite his disinterest in new social movements, his work, informed by pure immanence, might offer potential solutions. But we would argue that even in these innovations there is either a persistent tendency to imagine emancipation primarily as a return to some ideal state or a lack of critical engagement with alienation. In response, we propose a materialist renewal, which will lead us to ponder on the political role of sociologists. [less ▲]

Aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles lorsque l’identité d’une voleuse parvient à la connaissance du propriétaire lésé de son bien, différentes possibilités s’offrent à lui, dont le recours à la justice. La présente communication propose, non pas d’aborder le vol domestique commis par des femmes via les archives judiciaires, mais via les archives notariales. Les notaires rédigent des déclarations passées par des voleuses qui établissent la liste précise des objets dérobés, demandent pardon et/ou promettent une compensation. L’individu volé détient dès lors un document qui lui permettra de faire pression sur la voleuse, si celle-ci ne respecte pas son engagement. L’acte notarié est en effet un acte authentique qui fait pleine foi en justice. Dans ces déclarations, les circonstances des vols sont parfois décrites, de même que la manière dont ils ont été découverts. On y lit aussi les stratégies employées par des suspects pour prouver leur innocence. Ces sources permettent à l’historien d’aborder d’autres procédés de régulation sociale, notamment les procédés à l’amiable qui évitent de passer par l’arsenal répressif de la justice d’Ancien Régime. S’il récupère rapidement son bien, le propriétaire lésé peut en effet décider de ne pas porter plainte. De son côté, la voleuse, consciente d’avoir attiré l’attention, a tout intérêt à demander pardon et à réparer sa mauvaise action pour éviter, d’une part le châtiment de la justice, d’autre part l’exclusion d’une société où l’honneur et la réputation forment la base des relations sociales. En résumé, nous proposons ici d’étudier quelques cas de femmes voleuses dans la Principauté de Liège via un autre type de sources – les archives notariales – afin de mettre en lumière le fonctionnement d’une société et notamment un processus de régulation sociale différent du recours en justice.
