The Stateless Peoples born of political and colonial modernity speak different languages of history, society, life in common and politics. The state-national injunction, based on the unicity of the state, nation, history, identity and language, in which the state organizes for its benefit the relations of social production, class, gender, origin, etc., has thus generated so many frontiers to which they cannot be assigned.
On the occasion of this day, we want to propose conversely inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives that are attached to these other forms of history and narrative, capable of questioning the terms of research, and cross-border perspectives within and outside existing states, where living conditions and the differentiation of imposed statuses, the absence of rights, have given rise to the aspiration for new social and political projects open to transnational solidarity movements.
