    Engaging with categories in South Asia: processes, challenges and implications

    22nd International Workshop by the Youth Association for Indian Studies

    As researchers in social sciences, we are constantly confronting categories. While categorization is an inevitable process, the division and classification of the social world is not neutral. It entails choices and has implications. Some of these choices may be determined by institutions, others informally emerge within society, and still others are made by researchers for analytical purposes. In any case, categorisation can leave a lasting imprint on social and political structures, as in the South Asian context.

    Social sciences and Humanities: between constant/static and changing/change

    This forum represents a process of developing the field of social sciences and humanities, as it is a gathering of disciplines and addresses an important problem in scientific research, which is the way the researcher sees the curricula used in this field with its different specializations (political sciences, international relations, economics, law, media and communication, Sociology, psychology, history, geography, archaeology, anthropology, literature, linguistics, sports sciences), and what they represent in terms of relativity according to the background of the vision, subjectivity and objectivity of the researcher, and the extent to which he is able to explain the theoretical framework of different phenomena since they depend on the complexity of In terms of understanding, analyzing and interpreting the phenomenon, and in terms of intertwining between disciplines, one phenomenon is cross-disciplinary and overlaps between them.

    Spirituality, Healthcare And Social Movements In East Asia

    A Transnational Perspective

    East Asian Network for the Academic Study Of Esotericism - EANASE's first conference aims to offer the chance to reflect on the intertwined relationship between spirituality, healthcare and social movements in East Asia from a trans-national/local/cultural perspective. The emergence of new religious movements like Theosophy, Falungong and Taireido, or the worldwide popularisation of, for instance, acupuncture, reiki and hypnosis, challenge reductionist binary views of East/West, tradition/modernity, science/religion. Likewise, the recent dissemination of New Age practices across East Asia or the ongoing study of Buddhist meditation by American and European psychiatrists seem to reflect broader concerns that, for the past two centuries or so, have ignored national and cultural borders – and whose wider social implications are now more visible than ever.

    "Images and the imagination of the city" - the case of Beirut

    Cette séance mettra l’accent sur le Liban, en scrutant le cas de la ville de Beyrouth. La stratification urbaine qu’a connue Beyrouth à travers son histoire complexe,et les mutations brutales qu’ont subi le paysage urbain, ainsi que les formes architecturales et le tissu social ont généré une multitude d’images de la ville qui se confrontent encore actuellement. Nous retrouvons, entre autres, une Beyrouth contée par des habitants témoins des âges prospères d'une ville vivante, active, ou une Beyrouth portant les stigmates d’une nouvelle cartographie imposée par les violences d’une guerre civile ou encore une Beyrouth aseptisée, promue par des bailleurs privés. Face à ces identités conflictuelles, et à une privatisation progressive, due à une politique d'état conciliante, les espaces de la ville ont davantage de mal à accueillir un débat politique(au sens large du terme) libre et accessible à tous.

    Languages, Translation and Society

    “Al-Kīmiyā”, the Journal of the Faculty of Languages and Translation at the Saint-Joseph University of Beirut (issue20)

    The theme chosen for issue 20 of Al-Kīmiyā, the Journal of the Faculty of Languages ​​and Translation (FdLT – Faculté de langues et de traduction) of Saint Joseph University of Beirut (USJ – Université Saint-Joseph) is “Languages, translation and society”. The relationship between these three concepts is undeniable, not to say obvious. It refers to a certain interdisciplinarity displayed by the emergence, for quite a long time, of new disciplines and fields of research. Sociolinguistics dates back to the fifties of the last century, and the calls for the institution of a sociology of translation or a sociology of translation studies trace their roots back to some twenty years. Indeed, Jean-Marc Gouanvic's work Sociologie de la traduction, la science-fiction américaine dans l’espace culturel français des années 1950 was published in 1999. It is therefore a question of revisiting these more or less established fields in an attempt to reflect the current state of research or research perspectives in today's social contexts.

    Travel to, in, and from the Ottoman World and Turkish Republic

    Turkish Journal of History (Tarih Dergisi)

    For this special issue of Tarih Dergisi, the Turkish Journal of History, we invite original research addressing questions arising from travel to, in, and from the Ottoman Empire and Turkish Republic. Essays may focus on the place of travel writing in historiography. They may also address any and all aspects of travel. We particularly welcome studies of travel works in any format – books, manuscripts, letters, diaries, journals, reports, log-books, cartography, web-blogs – by Ottoman, Turkish, Arab, Asiatic and African travellers of any period. Essays need not, however, be restricted to conventional travelogues by individual travellers. We welcome studies concerned with modes of travel (pedestrianism, equestrian travel, trains, cars, planes, boats), and with questions involving mass travel (migrancy, nomadism, deportation).

    Solidarity and the challenge of the earth - towards territories of resilience?*

    Vers des territoires de résilience ?

    Comment penser les retours à la terre lorsque celle-ci vient à se dérober, vient à manquer (Charbonnier, 2017) ? Lorsque le retour à la terre, perçu un temps comme un refuge, se heurte à des épreuves : sécheresse, inondation, incendies, érosion, mais aussi conflits entre personnes, groupes, intérêts ? Ce séminaire de recherche vise ainsi à examiner, entre Europe et Japon (ou au-delà), les initiatives, les expériences, les collectifs qui se sont constitués en réponse à des crises, passées, actuelles ou anticipées et quels liens au milieu, au vivant et aux autres celles-ci promeuvent.

    Rethinking modernity: Durkheim, Bourdieu and beyond

    モダニティを問い直す:デュルケーム、ブルデュー、さらにその先へ

    La sociologie, qui s'est établie comme science sociale avec l'avènement de la société moderne, s'est toujours concentrée sur la notion de « modernité » comme étant au fondement de la recherche sociologique. La notion de « modernité » est relativisée en sociologie et en anthropologie, avec l'émergence des débats sur le « post-modernisme », qui soulèvent une question : notre société actuelle est-elle toujours une « société moderne » ? En mobilisant les figures traditionnelles de la sociologie française, à l'image de É. Durkheim et P. Bourdieu, nous examinerons dans ce colloque la question de la modernité, non seulement dans une perspective académique mais aussi telle que l'on peut l'observer dans le Japon contemporain.

    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 as well as narrative and aesthetic 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 edition of Regards aims at addressing the complex relation between Arab cinemas and international film support funds.

    Comparisons between Japan and Europe

    Ce seminaire a pour objectif d’explorer et d’interroger les philosophies, les idées et les utopies sur lesquelles reposent les mouvements de retour à la terre dans leur dimension culturelle et historique au Japon et en Europe.

C’est pourquoi ce seminaire abordera les pensées de la nature, la notion de vie dans la pensée européenne et japonaise, et comment ces notions prennent forme, circulent, sont adaptées et participent des transformations sociales.
