    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.

    Cultural Transfers in Central Asia : before, during and after the Silk Road

    Jusqu’à une date récente, la réflexion théorique sur les transferts culturels n’a que rarement débordé du cadre constitué par les cultures européennes, russe comprise, en dépit du fait que certains éléments de ce type d’analyse ont été déjà appliqués par les archéologues aux données centrasiatiques. En décloisonnant l’approche initiale, essentiellement eurocentriste, pour se rapprocher d’autres types de transferts dans d’autres espaces culturels, le colloque vise à questionner sur le terrain de l’Asie centrale l’efficacité des théories sur les transferts culturels et leurs concepts opérationnels (vecteurs de communications, processus de réception, innovations, appropriations, réinterprétations, adaptation, resémantisation, transformations, métissages, etc.).

    Translation History Matters

    1st East and West Conference on Translation Studies

    This conference aims to provide a biannual forum for East and West dialogue on Translation Studies.  This inaugural edition will be dedicated to “Translation History Matters” and welcomes contributions addressing issues related (though not circumscribed) to translation history, historiography and metahistoriography. Centred on translation understood as an intentional phenomenon of human and mostly intercultural communication, this conference aims to focus on the role played by translation in Eastern and Western cultural practices and encounters through history as well as on the role of history to understand both translation and translation studies.  By bringing together Eastern and Western views on a multitude of translation history matters, this conference aims to stress why, how and for which purposes translation history matters.

    Low-Tech / High-Tech

    We intend in this workshop to reconsider how new technologies flow and circulate around the globe. One cannot ignore the obvious fact that we are seeing the emergence of new technological and industrial centres which accompany the rapid redistribution of economic power around the world; but one should also take into account the fact that technology is – and has always been – flowing and circulating in much more unexpected ways than predicted by the old-fashioned diffusionist models which are still prevalent, even in these times of globalisation. By privileging in this workshop (and in our collective project) a comparative approach between three very different geographical regions – South Asia, the Middle East and Europe – we hope to be able to propose an approach to technological flow, which will be sufficiently global and comparative, for going beyond the specificities of any particular culture or society, and which may really better help us understand the dynamics of technological circulations and the processes by which technologies are reinvented in different locations.
