Presentation

The project Nomad’s Lands, économies, sociétés et matérialités des nomades (pdf) invites you to its final conference, from the 16th to the 18th of November 2022 in Lyon (France) under the auspices of the Maison de l'Orient et de la Méditerranée Jean-Pouilloux (MOM).

The project "Nomad’s lands. Economies, societies and materialities of nomads" is organising its final conference focusing on the study of nomadic socie­ties throughout the world, from prehistory to the present day.

It proposes a common and transdisciplinary framework of reflection favourable to the development of new approaches for analysing nomads, their societies, their cultures (material or immaterial), their territories and the relationships they maintain with the latter

This symposium is based on three complementary topics into which the contributions can be inserted:

Knowledge and management of environments by nomads

How do nomadic societies interact with their environment(s)? What is the influence of environmental factors on these societies? How do nomadic activities transform environments? What knowledge and perceptions do nomads have of their environment and how does this influence their management of sometimes constrained resources? To what extent are these management methods transmitted over time and do they adapt to environmental changes?

Unity and diversity of material cultures

Can we define material cultures of mobility and nomadism? What common features can be found from one place to another and from one period to another? What are their differences? What do people take with them and, conversely, what do they leave behind? What do they produce again? What remains in time? And what are our tools and/or methods for understanding the materiality of cultures that leave few traces?

Relations between nomads and sedentary people

How can we envisage the relations of nomadic societies with each other and with sedentary societies? What are the modalities of their insertion in local, regional, national, macro-re­gional and/or global socio-economic or political networks, whether nomadic or sedentary? Are the contacts and exchanges only one way? Are there cultural transfers?
