    War and Peace: Representations and Symbols in the Arab World

    Ce colloque interdisciplinaire vise à étudier, dans le temps long, les usages et les représentations véhiculés par les notions de guerre (ḥarb) et de paix (silm) aussi bien à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur du monde arabe. Il part du postulat que les démarches propres aux sciences humaines (études linguistiques et littéraires) et sociales (histoire, sociologie, politologie) sont complémentaires dans la mesure où les productions langagières comme les oeuvres de fiction rendent parfois aussi compte, sciemment ou non, du réel.

    Multiculturalism, interculturality, complex identities: the example of Caucasia

    The aim of the symposium is to highlight the treasures of an area that is culturally and historically a kind of multicultural island: the Caucasus. Nizami Ganjavi, for example, is a poet of multiculturalism, and he owes his fame both to his lyricism and to his ethics of peaceful coexistence. The Book of Dede Korkut is another interesting example: it is the result of a meeting of cultures, and it inspired many multicultural artists (poets, dramatists, film-makers). Caucasian multiculturalism is indeed still alive (among the numerous works inspired by the Oghuz epic, one can think of Nabi Hazri’s Dreams and legends, of Altaï Mamedov’s Deli Domrul or of Anar’s Dede Gorgut). The symposium will focus on the relationship between multiculturalism, interculturality and intermediality, as well as on the role of multiculturalism in the field of pedagogy.

    Challenges of Cultural Diversity in Europe and the Arab World

    The era of globalization arises numerous challenges to accept plurality, differences and management of cultural diversity, especially, with the return of the ingredient of culture to the field of political action in a context in which culture has a central role in the post Cold War world. Globalization has tried to widespread certain values, practices and cultural expressions, whereas in numerous Arab and Western countries, refuge has been sought in cultural singularity and identity. Therefore, cultural factors have had their impact in the design of national, regional and international policies.

    The war of the others: The colonies of the First World War

    Footsteps, narratives and memories

    This symposium is aimed at taking stock of the different researches carried out on the colonial participation in The First World War, as much from the point of view of history as of representations, in order to understand better the transformations occurring during this conflict.  Indeed, it hopes to consider as large a geographical space as possible: to be not only a reflexion about French colonies, but to be open to the European and international dimension. This symposium will concentrate on understanding what the Great War was to those who were involved in it without necessarily having decided to do so: pain, refusal, but also discoveries...
