L’Internationale des romanciers | Période | Kiosque du monde : A la une | Scoop.it

Aux côtés du grand récit moderniste se dessine une autre histoire de la littérature au XXe siècle : de la « littérature prolétarienne » au « roman mondial » contemporain, une histoire transnationale des grands enjeux esthétiques qui ont traversé ce siècle se fait jour, donnant toute sa place à la question sociale et politique. De l’impact de la révolution d’Octobre 1917 aux mouvements de décolonisation, en passant par le premier réalisme socialiste et le réalisme magique sud-américain, c’est la trajectoire de cette « internationale des écrivains » que...

Maastricht, repaire de dangereux gauchistes ? On n’écrit pas cela inspiré par le policier casqué brandissant un fusil à pompe, mais dont le visage est un « smiley » bien jaune et souriant, œuvre de Banksy déposée de son mur d’origine et vendue par la galerie SmithDavidson, mais à cause de cette phrase, qui ouvre un des chapitres du rapport de l’économiste Clare McAndrew, publié annuellement par la Tefaf (The European Fine Art Fair) à l’occasion de la Foire : « 71 % des adultes sur cette planète ont une fortune personnelle inférieure à 10 000 dollars (8 960 €).

Powerful Photo Series Captures The Ugly Reality Of Appropriating Black Women | The Huffington Post

Powerful Photo Series Captures The Ugly Reality Of Appropriating Black Women | The Huffington Post | Kiosque du monde : A la une | Scoop.it

A new powerful photo series captures the emotions black women can have -- but don't always get to express -- when their bodies are appropriated.
College freshman Imani Diltz's assignment, which has since garnered a lot attention outside of the classroom, was to explore one of the seven deadly sins. She chose lust. But the kind of lust she wanted to underscore was the appropriative lust that makes the features on black women -- big lips, larger butts, traditional hairstyles and even darker skin -- undesirable...

Prehistoric kitchen tools boosted human evolution, study says | The Japan Times | Kiosque du monde : A la une | Scoop.it

Developing tools with which to slice and mash their food meant our ancestors needed to chew much less, leaving more time for honing language and other skills instead, evolutionary scientists said Wednesday.
About 2.5 million years ago, a big shift was observed in the hominin family comprising modern humans and all our ancestors — away from big teeth, jaws and chewing...

The popularisation of the umbrella genre “world music” since the 1980s has been problematic, to say the least.
On the plus side, it has brought much little-known music to international attention. On the other hand, its commercial pressures have had a homogenising effect on indigenous music, often ironing out its unique...

It was 1967: birth of the Summer of Love as well as a magazine that would become the icon – and the enfant terrible – of the underground press. Produced in a basement flat off Notting Hill Gate, Oz was soon renowned for psychedelic covers by pop artist Martin Sharp, cartoons by Robert Crumb, radical feminist manifestos by Germaine Greer, and anything else that would send the establishment apoplectic. By August 1971, it had been...

If you stand on the edge of Danica Pond - it's a place in Te Atatu, not a person - and start digging a tunnel straight through to the other side of the globe, you'll be in Spain.
Artist Simon Gray, from Wellington, has constructed a rubbish-tin telephone/ listening device called You Say Hola, I say Hello on the spot which is the polar opposite of a Spanish village. Listen hard and you'll hear audio, made by children from Rutherford Primary School, which pays homage to this geographical tie. Gray likes to think those who see and hear the installation will think about our similarities and how we're all human...

Compte-rendu de "La destruction de l'université française", de Christope Granger | Contretemps | Kiosque du monde : A la une | Scoop.it

L’ouvrage de Christophe Granger a pour objet de montrer de quelle manière l’Université – entendue comme le lieu de production et de diffusion des savoirs – n’existe plus aujourd’hui, détruite par le capitalisme de crise. Le discours « crisologique » de ces dernières décennies – évoquant sans cesse la nécessité de s’adapter à un monde en transformation – a légitimé sa soumission et son intégration à l’économie de marché, introduisant toujours plus de flexibilité dans les établissements d’enseignement supérieur, et de concurrence entre eux. L’enseignement est désormais dominé...

Why humans evolved to feel shame | Futurity | Kiosque du monde : A la une | Scoop.it

Feelings of shame are universal in all cultures, and new research could explain why. Studies in the US, India, and Israel suggest that shame—like pain—evolved as a defense.
“The function of pain is to prevent us from damaging our own tissue,” says Daniel Sznycer, lead author of the paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “The function of shame is to prevent us from damaging our social relationships, or to motivate us to repair them.”...
