Abstract

How can students be empowered to communicate professionally – as translators, journalists and CCOs? How can professionals engaged in crucial language interactions do the same – pilots, nurses, lawyers and many others? This volume gives answers to these questions, providing insights into critical situations and good practices from many years of research and teaching in a practice-oriented, research driven School of Applied Linguistics.

Abstract

Depuis les années 1960, la croissance du taux d’activité féminine est l’une des transformations majeures du monde du travail, et les professions culturelles n’y font pas exception : la part des femmes au sein de ces professions est ainsi passée de 39 % à 43 % de 1991 à 2013. Presque tous les métiers fortement masculins au début des années 1990 comme les métiers d’art, les architectes et les photographes, par exemple, se sont ouverts aux femmes. Pour autant, la part des femmes demeure inférieure à la moyenne nationale, où l’activité féminine atteint 48 % de l’ensemble des professions, un constat qui peut surprendre au regard de la surreprésentation des femmes en termes de participation culturelle. En se développant, l’emploi féminin a largement épousé les spécificités de l’emploi propres aux professions culturelles, notamment leur plus grande flexibilité : les professionnelles de la culture sont, plus souvent que l’ensemble des actives, non salariées ou salariées sur contrats à durée limitée. Elles travaillent plus souvent à temps partiel, avec des horaires variables et atypiques, en soirée et le week-end. Surtout, leur accès aux professions artistiques et culturelles conforte la règle de la surqualification des femmes en termes de niveau de diplôme : en 2013, plus d’une active de ces professions sur deux est titulaire d’un diplôme égal ou supérieur à bac + 3, contre 40 % de leurs homologues masculins – une surqualification d’autant plus forte qu’il s’agit de métiers traditionnellement exercés par des hommes.

Abstract

Après avoir été l’espace de l’exception autoritaire, le monde arabe est devenu, au premier semestre de 2011, celui des « révolutions ». Au leitmotiv de l’incapacité congénitale des pays arabes d’accéder à la démocratie a succédé le discours sur les « printemps arabes » et l’effet de domino supposé de la « révolution tunisienne » qui, le 14 janvier 2011, avait chassé son « dictateur ». Or aujourd’hui, la plupart des régimes autoritaires sont largement parvenus à museler les mouvements de prot...

Abstract

“Musicians often pay a high price for sharing their art with us. Underneath the glow of success can often lie loneliness and exhaustion, not to mention the basic struggles of paying the rent or buying food. Sally Anne Gross and George Musgrave raise important questions – and we need to listen to what the musicians have to tell us about their working conditions and their mental health.” Emma Warren (Music Journalist and Author). “Singing is crying for grown-ups. To create great songs or play them with meaning music's creators reach far into emotion and fragility seeking the communion we demand of it. However, music’s toll on musicians can leave deep scars. In this important book, Sally Anne Gross and George Musgrave investigate the relationship between the wellbeing music brings to society and the wellbeing of those who create. It’s a much needed reality check, deglamorising the romantic image of the tortured artist.” Crispin Hunt (Multi-Platinum Songwriter/Record Producer, Chair of the Ivors Academy). It is often assumed that creative people are prone to psychological instability, and that this explains apparent associations between cultural production and mental health problems. In their detailed study of recording and performing artists in the British music industry, Sally Anne Gross and George Musgrave turn this view on its head. By listening to how musicians understand and experience their working lives, this book proposes that whilst making music is therapeutic, making a career from music can be traumatic. The authors show how careers based on an all-consuming passion have become more insecure and devalued. Artistic merit and intimate, often painful, self-disclosures are the subject of unremitting scrutiny and data metrics. Personal relationships and social support networks are increasingly bound up with calculative transactions. Drawing on original empirical research and a wide-ranging survey of scholarship from across the social sciences, their findings will be provocative for future research on mental health, wellbeing and working conditions in the music industries and across the creative economy. Going beyond self-help strategies, they challenge the industry to make transformative structural change. Until then, the book provides an invaluable guide for anyone currently making their career in music, as well as those tasked with training and educating the next generation

Abstract

The development of a closed-loop cycle is a necessary condition so as to develop a circular economy model as an alternative to the linear model, in order to maintain the value of products and materials for as long as possible. For this motive, the definition of the value must be demonstrated for both the environment and the economy. The presence of these analyses should be associated with the social dimension and the human component. A strong cooperation between social and technical profiles is a new challenge for all researchers. End of life of products attract a lot of attention, and the final output could be the production of technologies suitable for managing this waste.
