    New Middle-Eastern digital research archives - sound, image, film and web

    Data sharing between Lebanon, Jordan and Syria

    Les chercheurs en sciences humaines et sociales qui ont choisi le Proche-Orient comme terrain d'investigation scientifique depuis le XIXe siècle ont constitué des fonds documentaires comprenant tous les types de sources. Chercheur·e·s libanais·es, syrien·nne·s ? Jordannien·ne·s et Français·es ont produit et mobilisé des corpus de notes et carnets de terrain ou de fouilles, photographies, films et enregistrements sonores, sites web... Ces ensembles constituent des collections qui sont susceptibles d'éclairer l'histoire de la région et d'aider à la compréhension du temps présent. Ces collections restent pourtant souvent difficilement accessibles, parfois même inconnues du monde académique et culturel et bien plus encore des différents publics concernés.

    Pop Culture in the Arabian Peninsula

    Arabian Humanities No. 14 (Spring 2020)

    The literature on pop culture in the Arabian Peninsula is particularly thin. While a rich scholarship has analyzed oral culture and vernacular poetry, less ink was spilled on those forms of culture that use new media, from tape recording to mobile phone aps and from TV production to YouTube. This issue of Arabian Humanities seeks to fill that gap and to analyze pop culture in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

    "Regard" Journal

    The current issue of Regards will focus on the relations between the arts (cinema, theater, dance, visual arts…) and the body in the Arab societies and, more broadly, in the Mediterranean region. This sensitive subject suffers from prejudgment and prejudice in both audience’s and critics’ minds.

    Narrative forms and co-production in Arab cinemas

    Norms, constraints, and margins of freedom

    Film industry in the Arab world remains generally underdeveloped. Arab countries still depend on international film support funds, mainly European. This puts Arab producers, scriptwriters and filmmakers in a subaltern position in relation to European producers and funders, whose expectations in terms of content and narrative forms end up strongly impacting the film creation process. On the other hand, margins of freedom and resistance can be created within this system. This conference aims at addressing the complex relation between Arab cinemas and international film support funds.

    The Renaissance of origins

    Beginnings, genesis and creation in 15th-16th century arts

    Cette manifestation, ouverte gratuitement au grand public, souhaite interroger les multiples et diverses modalités de représentation des origines au sein des arts figuratifs à la Renaissance. Quelles sont les conditions d’émergence et d’existence d’un discours figuré sur les origines ? Y-a-t-il des thèmes, motifs ou figures qui invitent plus spécifiquement à une telle mise en scène ? Quelles sont les fins de la convocation de ces figures de l’origine ? Le colloque aura lieu au mois de juin 2018, à Tel Aviv puis à Paris, le temps de quatre journées et réunira une trentaine de spécialistes principalement français et israéliens.

    The development of cinephilia and the promotion of French and local cinemas

    The contribution of the French Institutes and the Alliances françaises

    The role of movie theatres in the development of cinephilia is a field which has been the subject of a number of researches . Among these venues, a specific section consisting of those of the network of French cultural institutions abroad has not been analysed. Yet they have encouraged and still make a significant contribution to the dissemination and the promotion of cinema. The French cultural action outside France in general has been widely studied, cinema-related action, however, has been neglected. The aim of this colloquium is to remedy this lack and to highlight this contribution to the development of the cinephilia and to the promotion of French and local cinemas, including the encouragement of young creation and the emergence of new talents.

    Image(s) of India

    What do we picture when we evoke India? For its 20 th annual Workshop, The “Association des jeunes études indiennes” (AJEI) invites young researchers to share their knowledge and to propose a critical approach of the concept of ‘Images’ in the subcontinent: To what extent do images reflect the many realities and representations of India and how does the Indian imagery affect scholarly, artistic and touristic as well as political perceptions, from a western and an Indian point of view? The Workshop is aimed to develop a cross-disciplinary dialogue in social sciences for a better understanding of the multiple roles that Images have been playing from antiquity to nowadays in the perceptions and the foundations of culture and identities in Indian society. The aim is also to open some reflexive discussions on the use and construction of images.

    Street signage in urban Africa and Israel/Palestine

    The exhibition will examine street signage in urban Africa and Israel/Palestine as an outcome of dialectic processes, short and long termed, of spatial production and attached imagery and symbolism. That is, beyond being a signifier of a spatial orientation per se.

    The Renaissance of Origins

    Beginnings, Genesis and Creation in the Art of the VXth and XVIth Centuries

    This conference seeks to introduce a variety of different approaches and interpretations of the concept of “origins” within the visual arts during the Renaissance. However, to consider the question of origins necessitates establishing a distinction between an original beginning such as the creation of the world, an event which initiated historical time, and the symbolic exercises of re-creation that follow it. These phenomena of echo or aemulatio are defined by their manifest desire to capture the primal energy of the original beginning. Such re-creations attempt to reproduce the vitality inherent in the original beginning, and are characterized, above all, by a fundamental desire to reestablish a link to an ideal and initial origin.

    The Middle East and Europe: cross-cultural, diplomatic and economic exchanges in the early modern period (1500-1820)

    This conference is an international symposium that proposes to study the entire range of exchanges and relations established between these two areas during the Early Modern Times (1500-1820). Its main objective is to think about diplomatic, economic, religious and cultural links between Europe and the Middle East by calling upon over twenty researchers with specializations in the Arab, Persian and Muslim world. In addition, this conference will provide a comprehensive overview to date of the Arabian Gulf at a time of major political change, including the successive arrival of the European “trading empires”. It will focus on some of the methodological challenges raised by a global, connected and cross-cultural thinking approach to the History of the Middle East and Europe”.

    Towards the globalisation of urban anti-globalisation?

    La mondialisation des normes néo-libérales dans l’espace urbain semble être un processus irréversible. Dans le domaine foncier, par exemple, des politiques volontaristes sont proposées pour intégrer le foncier des quartiers informels – territoires peu connectés au marché – dans le système capitaliste mondial en vue de transformer ce « capital mort » en « capital vivant » (De Sotto, 2000).

    The construction of contemporary Japanese cities - Ebisu journal no.55 (2018)

    Revue « Ebisu », n°55 (2018)

    L’ambition de ce numéro d’Ebisu est de porter un regard renouvelé sur ce qui fait ville, sur qui fait la ville et comment se façonne l’espace urbain dans le Japon du XXIe siècle. Il s’agit aussi d’intégrer d’autres approches : les urbanistes (architectes, géographes et sociologues) se retrouveront naturellement dans cet appel, mais une ouverture pluridisciplinaire est nécessaire pour traiter de cet objet aujourd’hui universel. Ainsi, en complément de contributions traitant des acteurs de l’urbain, des modes de vie, des formes et de la maîtrise de la ville, nous souhaiterions voir questionner, par exemple, la poétique des villes japonaises du XXIe siècle, l’esthétique qu’elles génèrent au cinéma ou dans les jeux-vidéos, ou encore la manière dont la littérature s’empare de la ville japonaise contemporaine

    Deciphering Ôtsu popular imagery - picture books from Tôkaidô to Miró

    Des imagiers du Tôkaidô à Miró

    Les images d’Ōtsu – peintures populaires produites du XVIIe au XIXe siècle dans des villages sur la route du Tōkaidō, entre Kyōto et Ōtsu au bord du lac Biwa – sont les grandes oubliées de l’histoire de l’art japonais et de la recherche académique. Elles représentent pourtant une forme unique d’expression graphique, à caractère religieux, moral ou satirique, qui occupa une place importante à l’époque d’Edo.
