    Teaching Gender. Theory and society in the classroom

    Now more than ever, gender as an analytical concept is being heavily contested from diverse quarters inside as well as outside academia. The panel discussion addresses key questions of how to teach gender as  critical theory in the light of current societal and political tensions on the one hand and institutional constraints inside the university on the other hand. How can we teach “critique”? What does teaching gender mean in terms of methods and topics? And how can we engage in critical research and teaching while responding to societal expectations as to relevant output and knowledge transfer?

    Contemporary reflexive practices in the Near East

    L’actualité médiatique relative aux désastres de la crise politique au Proche-Orient insiste particulièrement sur les offenses faites aux patrimoines : utilisation de sites archéologiques comme bases stratégiques ou lieux d’atteinte à la vie humaine, pillages, dégradations, voire destructions massives. Dépassant, et l’état des lieux connu des destructions en Syrie et en Irak, et la question des difficultés pratiques à se rendre sur place (risque sécuritaire, baisse du nombre de visas délivrés, etc.), cette journée d’étude de troisième cycle de l'École du Louvre souhaite soulever les conséquences de la crise politique et de sa médiatisation sur les études des objets et sites archéologiques du Proche-Orient menées par des archéologues, historiens de l'art ou conservateurs.

    Graduate and Postgraduate Programs in Education in Arab Universities: Quality and Added Value

    This conference is organized by the Arab Educational Information Network Shamaa and the Lebanese Association for Educational Studies and will be held in November 2013 in Beirut, Lebanon. The conference's objective is to provide a platform for educational researchers to present their perspectives on the current state of research studies in graduate programs in education and to raise questions regarding the quality of these studies. Papers presented will be subject to peer review process to be eligible for publication in the refereed conference proceedings. We hope that this conference will help capture the current practices in MA and PHD programs in education in the Arab countries, and will allow for a rich professional dialogue among its participants toward developing ideas and recommendations for improving these programs as well as the quality of their graduates and the studies they produce.

    French-Iraqi scientific meeting

    La vocation de l’Institut français du Proche-Orient est non seulement d’encourager la recherche française dans la région, mais aussi de jouer un rôle actif dans le développement des relations entre communautés universitaires française et proche-orientale. C’est dans cet esprit qu’a été organisée cette rencontre franco-irakienne à Beyrouth, en vue de renouer les liens ébranlés par la situation de guerre en Irak.
