    Writing under constraint. Mystics, contemplatives and the spectre of the judge

    Discursive practices and strategies. Spain, Portugale, Latin America (15th-18th centuries)

    Ce numéro des Cahiers d'études des cultures ibériques et latino-américaines (CECIL) invite ainsi à s'interroger à l’époque moderne sur les stratégies d'écriture, de réécriture et de construction du discours afin de  mystifier les censeurs de la fin du Moyen Âge et de la modernité. Par delà les pratiques d'écriture propres aux auteurs mystiques et ascétiques, les contribution d'études replaceront la médiatisation du texte ascétique dans son rapport à la norme juridique et canonique.

    Hamsa. Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies, nº 2

    “Purity” and “Impurity” establish themselves as structural categories in both Islam and Judaism, embracing dimensions as diverse as the body, food, clothing and even space itself. The 2nd issue of the journal Hamsa will be devoted to this wide-ranging theme, seeking to obtain diachronic historical perspectives. To this effect, we aim to promote the analysis of interfaith relationships, in those instances where purity and impurity are projected in contacts with the Other. Those dimensions concern not only the minorities, but also affect Christianitas itself, through interiorization of these concepts and their application to minority communities (as is the case, for example, with limpeza de sangue - “cleanliness of blood”).
