    Living, Consuming and Action in Glocal Palestine

    More often than not, Palestine, characterised by conflict, is analysed through the sole lenses of its political or cultural idiosyncrasy. Yet, new ways of living, consuming and acting that are embedded in the global reality, have emerged in the previous years and remained understudied. This global dimension may be understood as an imposed and inescapable reality, yet it is also adopted, integrated, amended and applied to a local dimension, so as to create a purely Palestinian form of it.This event will gather mostly researchers and PhD students in social sciences specialised in Palestine but will also pursue a comparative approach by resorting to other cases in the Middle East, North Africa or Europe. The conference also aims at confronting various approaches at the crossroads between art and science, research and action; it will create the frame for a dialogue between social sciences and the works of artists, architects as well as the new actions and philosophy of citizen and activist societies.

    Alep et la Syrie du Nord

    De l’empire aux États, les métamorphoses contemporaines d’une ancienne métropole et de sa région

    Nous souhaitons comprendre comment une ville comme Alep est fabriquée et transformée par ses fonctionnements au quotidien et par l’intervention de mécanismes et de principes d’aménagement et de contrôle, dans son architecture, ses espaces, et dans les liens et les interactions qui la structurent. Nous nous intéressons aussi à sa zone d’influence et d’activité directe, qui constitue une partie de la Syrie : l’identité alépine est un élément de l’identité nationale dans un État-nation en cours d’élaboration. Nous nous intéressons enfin à son réseau d’interaction économique et culturelle à plus longue distance.
