  • December 08, 2022, Territorial knowledge conference "Farmers, the challenge of generational renewal in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur"

    connaissance du territoire

    The Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region offers a rich agriculture thanks to a territory extending from the coast to the high mountains. In 2020, it had 18,025 farms. However, climatic and economic crises have a direct impact on farms, forcing farmers to be highly agile and constantly adaptable, even as the challenge of food sovereignty in the region becomes more pressing.

    In this context, the agricultural world must take up the challenge of installing new farmers. Although the latest agricultural census highlights a rejuvenation of the population of farmers in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, in 2020, more than half of the farms in the region will be run by a farmer aged 55 or over. Who are the new farmers in the Southern Region? How can we better support them in their path towards viable and livable farms?
    Supporting the renewal of the farming population is a crucial issue for the Southern Region, which is mobilising its "Knowledge Factories" partnerships to get to know these new farmers better and to better support their installation.
    During this new "Connaissance du Territoire" meeting, moderated by Alexandre JOUX, university professor at Aix-Marseille School of Journalism and communication:

    • Célia PASQUETTI, head of the food sovereignty department of the Southern Region will introduce the regional context and the stakes on the regional territory.
    • Aurélie CARDONA, sociology researcher, and Emilie RICHARD-FEVRE, post-doctoral resercher at INRAE, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Research Centre, UR Ecodevelopment, will present "Setting up in agriculture in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region: an obstacle course?  In a context where the renewal of the agricultural population is an urgent issue that must be supported, the Southern Region has mobilised INRAE to study the issue of agricultural installation. The proposed study allows us to understand the strategies of the holders of agricultural projects in terms of installation aids in their trajectories and in what way these aids constitute or not resources to ensure the success and viability of installation projects.
    • Our main witness will be Cécile GAZO, PhD student in sociology. Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse / École Nationale Supérieure Agronomique de Toulouse, Joint Research Unit, INPT-INRAE AGIR. UMR AGIR AGroécologie, Innovations et Territoires - Thesis GAZO Cécile (

    Azzeddine Ahmed-Chaouch

    Graduated from EJCAM in 2006 (EJCM at the time), he joined "Le Parisien-Aujourd'hui en France" after winning the Pascale Gérin Prize (Best intern of the summer 2016). He did his training in the very formative "news" department where he covered, in particular, the Courjault affair known as the "frozen babies". He then joined the brand new "web" service and revealed the famous "Casse-toi pov' con" video on the site. He then pushes the door of the political service where he covers the news of the extreme right, fueled by the succession of Jean-Marie Le Pen to the FN.
    In 2009, M6 recruits him to join the new team that will launch the first evening newscast of the channel "19-45". In charge of the political and "police-justice" news, he reveals with his colleague François Vignolle the "Zahia" affair. In 2015, he joined the program "Le Supplément" on Canal + and then "Quotidien" on TMC presented by Yann Barthès (produced by the company Bangumi).

    During these 16 years, in these different editorial offices, he was able, in parallel, to publish four books: Le Testament du Diable (on Le Pen), la France du Djihad, OM, Premier pour toujours and very recently Dossier V13 (PLON) on the trial of the November 13th attacks.
    Azzeddine Ahmed-Chaouch holds a degree in Political Science and a Master's degree in Journalism. He is also a great supporter of the Olympic of Marseille.

  • September 30, 2022, Conference: 40 years of change in the journalism and communication professions in the digital age


    On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Aix-Marseille School of Journalism and Communication (EJCAM), the Institut Méditerranéen des Sciences de l'Information et de la Communication (IMSIC) and EJCAM collaborates to reflect on the evolution of the journalism and communication professions, which are at the heart of their respective concerns. On this occasion, research and pedagogy have proposed a joint reflection, completed and resolutely oriented towards students, alumni, professionals and researchers.
    The last forty years have seen profound changes in the professions of journalism, communication and the media.

    While communication has found its place in all sectors and institutions (associations, companies, public services, etc.), journalism has been particularly affected by the emergence of the web and the widespread publication of information online. Thus, the professions that EJCAM trains for have also evolved considerably.
    As a major actor in training in these sectors, in Marseille and in France, the School of Journalism and Communication has been able to accompany these changes over time. These forty years, and the addition of the IMSIC, now the third largest national laboratory in Information and Communication Sciences, have also modified the links between teaching and research. Thus, this celebration of EJCAM's 40th anniversary was an opportunity to take stock of these changes, to look back at the progress made, and to look forward to the future.

    This event took place on Friday, September 30, 2022 at EJCAM.

  • September 22, 2022, Roundtable discussion: "Journalism a passionnate job?"

    A round table was held on Thursday september 22, 2022, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm in amphitheatre A on the theme of journalism as a "passionnate job".

    The round table is organized as part of the preparation of the Etats généraux de la formation et de l'emploi des jeunes journalistes which will be held at the beginning of October in Paris. The Etats généraux are organized by the Conférence des écoles de journalisme and our round table, like other events organized in the different schools, will be presented at a plenary conference. The theme was chosen by a working group of students from the J2 class who contributed to the preparation of the "Etats généraux".

    The panel of our round table was composed of :

    • Jean-Marie Leforestier, editor in chief at Marsactu
    • Thierry Valero, deputy editor-in-chief of Anne-Sophie Maxime in charge of regional news at France Télévisions in PACA, and long-time editor-in-chief at France 2 in charge of regional correspondents
    • Romain Capdepon, journalist reporter at La Provence and former head of the police-justice section, author of the book Les Minots
    • Yacine Amenna, doctoral student at the EHESS, Norbert Elias Center, working on Professional soccer and its strategies for recruiting and training young people in France and Germany. He will bring a sociological perspective on the issues of vocation and integration of young professionals.

    The idea of the theme is to question the passionate and vocational dimension of journalism, its stakes in terms of investment in work (articulation of professional and personal life), the possible differences between young journalists and previous generations in the investment in work, as well as the role of vocation and passion in choosing a career in journalism.
