Le Cube and the collective of anthropologists "Les écrans de la liberté" are joining forces to propose the international festival "Anthropologies Numériques" which will take place at Le Cube on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 February 2013 from 9.30 am to 6 pm.
On this occasion, a call for projects is launched to collect projects related to these new forms of anthropology. It is open to ethnological and social science research, to experimental work of all kinds on societies and cultures, and to different forms of creation that favour these particular encounters, between a moment in life and a stage of reflection. The projects will be selected by Les Ecrans de la liberté (Pascal Leclercq, Jacques Lombard, Nadine Wanono) in collaboration with Le Cube.

DIGITAL ANTHROPOLOGIES FESTIVAL
On Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 February 2013 from 9.30 am to 6 pm, Le Cube and Les écrans de la liberté offer two days of discoveries and encounters around anthropology and new media through film screenings and round-table discussions with authors and anthropologists.
Today, digital technologies open up many possibilities to conduct all possible forms of association between image, sound and text. They are thus forging a new instrumental reason which today makes new creations necessary at the crossroads of digital arts, anthropology and social sciences in connection with other disciplines such as neurosciences.
More and more frequently, the realities addressed by anthropologists are often overwhelmed by geopolitical tensions, economic and social crises, emergency situations, migratory flows, and discrimination faced by many communities and individuals. This notion of inter-culturality, which is gradually gaining ground in questions and surveys, favours and imposes new fields of research and expression. But also, and perhaps even more importantly, inter-culturality tends to be a field in its own right, in which a profound transformation of views towards other modes of universalism is taking place thanks to one another.
The objective of these two days is to encourage the consideration of these singular writings which integrate interactivity, the multiplicity of points of view, collective creation and a sensitive approach to testimonies of all kinds. By shaping their sensory apprehension, they develop elements that are essential to the contextualization of the subjects treated.
