International Conference, 21 – 24 June 2021, Nice (France) – Université Côte d’Azur.

The URMIS joins in the tribute paid by colleagues, friends and relatives to Lokman Slim, who was cowardly murdered in Lebanon in February 2021. Humanities and social scientists working in the Near East have regularly benefited from Lokman Slim’s work through Umam Research & Documentation, an association he co-directed with his wife Monika Borgmann.
This conference aims to shed light on recent Central American events (the violence, the corruption, but also the massive mobilizations for human rights and the new forms of political action) all in light of their past. What are the continuities and ruptures since 1979, since the triumph of the Sandinista revolution and the explosion of internal wars in the region? And what challenges for the new generation?
This book provides an insightful approach to understanding the contemporary circulations of feminist repertoires and shows how the international/transnational circulations of gender are interconnected, even coextensive, with the globalization process itself.
