International conference: Crises, challenges, innovations

The planet and human beings are currently going through a double crisis of great gravity: climate and health. These crises impact human activity in all its diversity: cultural, societal, political, legal, commercial, economic, educational. In addition to these global events, there are national, social (“Black Lives Matter” in the United States, Afghan crisis…) and political crises (Brexit in the United Kingdom, American insurrection on Capitol Hill in January 2021…). This period evokes representations of real and fictional historical crises. The specter of natural disaster – pandemic, flood, fire, hurricane – and the effects on populations seem to come alive in the media and in the contemporary collective imagination.

In addition to these global phenomena, we have also witnessed national, social (“Black Lives Matter” in the United States, the Afghan crisis…) and political crises (Brexit in the United Kingdom, American insurrection on Capitol Hill in January 2021…). This period evokes representations of real and fictional historical crises. The specter of natural disaster – pandemic, flood, fire, hurricane – and the effects on populations seem to come to life in the media and in the contemporary collective imagination.
