The next RFN conference will be held in Genoa (13-17/06) – The Cfp is open!

We’re very happy to announce that the Genova conference is going ahead this year!

It’s taken some time due to problems with the organization at the local level, but we’re back on track, with a little help from the wonderful RFN Steering Group, and we’re finally ready to reopen the CFP for a few weeks. We’ve decided to reopen the call to give people a chance to participate if they hadn’t sent anything last year, when things still felt more uncertain. We’ll be accepting proposals until March 7th.
We’re going to get in touch with everyone who had already sent us a proposal last year in the next couple of weeks, so you’ll be hearing from us soon.

Please note that the conference email address is still rfngenova21, because it would be impractical to change it, so that’s not a typo in the CFP. The CFP is also available on the RFN website, where we’ll be publishing updates on registration and other practical information. Although this is going to be a festival/conference, we’re only accepting proposals for the conference bit (see CFP for details), not for films.
Here’s the link to the updated CFP on the RFN website:https://radicalfilmnetwork.com/conferences/genoa-2022/
We’re really looking forward to getting together again for the RFN conference and hope to see you in Genova next June!

Ventimiglia: “EUFEMIA. I sommersi e i salvati” Prosegue il tour dell’installazione / The tour of the exibition continues

Prosegue il tour dell’installazione “EUFEMIA i sommersi e i salvati” del collettivo Milotta/Donchev realizzata in collaborazione con il collettivo Progetto20k, la fotografa Emanuela Zampa, il gruppo di ricercatorə del laboratorio di sociologia visuale dell’Università di Genova e il laboratorio dell’Università di Nizza (ObsMigAM-Urmis-MSHS Sud-Est). Dopo Genova e Nizza l’opera, con una nuova configurazione, trova ospitalità all’interno del Liceo Statale Aprosio di Ventimiglia e successivamente attraverserà simbolicamente la frontiera e sarà presentata presso l’istituto Pierre e Marie Curie di Mentone. La mostra sarà al centro di diversi eventi che coinvolgeranno gli studenti, con presentazioni legate ai progetti portati avanti sul confine di Ventimiglia e sulla genesi dell’ideazione dell’opera Eufemia. Tra questi, durante la settimana dello stop didattico sarà attivato un laboratorio con gli studenti, al fine di produrre attraverso l’uso del disegno animato, dei brevi video che andranno ad arricchire successivamente i contenuti dell’installazione.

The tour of the exhibition “EUFEMIA i sommersi e i salvati” continues. The project has been realised by the Milotta/Donchev collective, in collaboration with Progetto20k, the photographer Emanuela Zampa, the group of researchers of the visual sociology laboratory of the University of Genoa and the laboratory of the University of Nice (ObsMigAM-Urmis-MSHS Sud-Est). After Genoa and Nice, the work, with a new configuration, will be hosted in the Liceo Statale Aprosio in Ventimiglia, then it will symbolically cross the border, in order to be presented at the Pierre and Marie Curie Institute in Menton. The exhibition will be part of several events involving the students, with presentations of the projects carried out on the Ventimiglia border and concerning the genesis of the Eufemia’s concept. Among these, during the week of the didactic pause a workshop will be set up with the students in order to produce, through the use of animated drawing, short videos that will subsequently enrich the contents of the installation.

Mathilde Du Jardin (Université Libre de Bruxelles) – visiting PhD at Laboratorio di Sociologia Visuale during February-March 2022

Mathilde du Jardin, a PhD student in criminology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, during February-March 2022 is visting PhD at Laboratorio di Sociologia Visuale. She is member of the Research Centre « Pénalités, Sécurités & Déviances », and she is conducting a research about the criminalization processes of solidarity with undocumented people in Italy, Belgium and the United Kingdom. The project has started when citizens mobilized in large numbers to help migrants in transit and homeless in Brussels, provoking a break with the federal government policies and leading to a symbolic trial called “le procés de la solidarité”. Her fields of research are the sociology of deviance and migration, and more specifically the phenomenon of criminalization of immigration in Europe. She is interested in participatory methods and ethnographic research approaches.  

Mathilde du Jardin, dottoranda in criminologia all’Università libre de Bruxelles, durante febbraio-marzo 2022 è visiting PhD al Laboratorio di Sociologia Visuale. Membro del centro di ricerca « Pénalités, Sécurités & Déviances », sta conducendo una ricerca sui processi di criminalizzazione della solidarietà verso i migranti undocumented in Italia, Belgio e Regno Unito. Il suo progetto nasce quando i cittadini si sono mobilitati in massa per aiutare i migranti in transito e senzatetto a Bruxelles, segnando una rottura con la politica del governo federale e portando a un processo simbolico chiamato “le procés de la solidarité”. I suoi campi di ricerca sono la sociologia della devianza e delle migrazioni, e più in particolare il fenomeno della criminalizzazione dell’immigrazione in Europa. È interessata ai metodi partecipativi e agli approcci di ricerca etnografica.

“Si la terre tourne, tu tournes avec elle”. Una nuova produzione video/A new video production

Georges Kouagang è un collaboratore del Laboratorio di Sociologia Visuale proveniente dal Camerun. Un richiedente asilo che è arrivato in Italia attraverso il Mediterraneo. Salvato da una nave dell’ONG “SOS Mediterranée” e sbarcato al porto di Pozzallo; trasferito, poi, a Genova, Georges dopo alcuni anni dal suo arrivo, ritorna in Sicilia insieme ad alcuni ricercatori del Laboratorio di Sociologia Visuale e, rivivendola, racconta la sua storia. La sua testimonianza è diventata “Si la terre tourne”: un nuovo documentario di Massimo Cannarella, basato su una ricerca di Luca Queirolo Palmas, Federico Rahola, Jacopo Anderlini e Luca Giliberti.

“Si la terre tourne, tu tournes avec elle” è disponibile al seguente link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PyyflsclNA
