    Interférences entre l’écrit et la praxis dans l’œuvre de l’artiste plasticien Nja Mahdaoui

    Dans son ouvrage « Entre l’écrit et le visuel », l’artiste théoricien Samir Triki parle des « voies de circulation entre la matière littéraire et la matière artistique, ainsi que les éléments spécifiques et endogènes qui caractérisent l’une ou l’autre ». Seules ces chaînes sont capables de renseigner sur la mesure, dans laquelle l’artiste s’attache à faire correspondre son écriture à sa pratique. C’est dans ce contexte que se déroulera cette journée d’étude, mettant en lumière l’expérience de l’un des artistes les plus célèbres, dont les œuvres sont les plus diverses et les plus ouvertes sur son être-créateur, sur l’héritage et sur l’Autre, avec toutes les contradictions, bifurcations et intersections que portent ces univers. Nous voulons parler de l’expérience de l’artiste Nja Mahdaoui, considérée comme l’une des expériences artistiques arabes et africaines les plus importantes, la plus connue et reconnue par les pays du « centre » occidental, ainsi que par les pays du Moyen-Orient.

    Trans, queer and “third gender” people in Muslim countries

    Journal “Anthropology of the Middle East” (AME) – Issue 20.1 (Summer 2025)

    Today, despite some prohibitions, more and more trans and queer people are asserting their gender identity in Muslim societies. Over and above the importance of gender binarity and spatial separation in Muslim countries, there are many historical figures of "third gender", to use the concept introduced by the anthropologist Gilbert Herdt. In the Muslim world, the term "third gender" generally refers to the eunuch of Ottoman harems, but there are many other figures in the Islamic context, varying from countries (Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Mauritania, Egypt, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Albania...) and times. As the vocabulary and realities are plural, depending on the country and the period, the specificities of these figures and their names will be analyzed, as well as the ways in which these groups or individuals designate themselves. This issue will examine these figures collectively as a group (hijra, trans, queer...), and their role and social status, but will also look at them as individuals.

    Summer School - History

    Summer University dedicated to Food and Drink Studies

    Since 2003, our summer university has positionned itself as a leading platform for reflection on new research in Food Studies. After several thematic editions, this 2024 edition will continue its ambition to provide a resolutely broad overview of these fields of research from a multidisciplinary perspective. Over the last twenty years or so, new themes have emerged and given new impetus to research in food studies. How do they fit together within the various disciplines of humanities and social sciences, from anthropology and history to sociology and literary studies ? How can young researchers position themsleves in relation to the wide-ranging possibilities offered by this field of research ? Leading specialists from different disciplinary backgrounds will address these questions through the prism of their own research.

    Social Scientist Approaches To Catholicism in Africa

    There is abundance of literature on African Catholicism but it is unvenly distributed across disciplines in humanity and social sciences. Theology takes the lion's share followed by historical sciences. Overall, Catholicism in Africa has been neglected in the social sciences first in favour of African Independant Churches and, more recently, of Pentecostalism. This volume is interested in contributions which take a social scientist approach (based on empirical data) to any aspect of African Catholicism.

    Armenian Diaspora(s) in Motion: Places, Stakeholders and Practices in the 21st Century

    Since diaspora studies emerged in the 1980s, the Armenian dispersion has played a prominent role in the scholarly literature seeking to understand and classify the nature, forms, and effects of diasporas as social formations. However, 40 years after the rise of diaspora studies, one has to admit that far from offering a stable paradigm, the Armenian diaspora (an expression that should be used in the plural) has undergone numerous transformations. The objective of this 2-day conference will be to reflect on these contemporary reshapings of the Armenian diaspora(s), revealing their diversity and the new dynamics at work.

    Tinabantu - Journal of Advanced Studies of African Society - Varia

    The Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society (CASAS) was established in 1997 by its founding director, professor Kwesi Kwaa Prah, and incorporated to the University of the Western Cape (UWC) in 2018 within the University’s Department of Linguistics, Arts and Humanities Faculty. This call for papers comes within the resurrection of the journal, which will remain “Africanist in orientation” and a “forum for the consideration of diverse views, ideas and opinions reflecting differing philosophical and political dispositions, but committed to the maintenance of high intellectual standards and a recognition of the historical and cultural unity of Africa and its diaspora”.

    Microformes de l’organique dans la littérature, l’art et le cinéma de l’époque moderne à nos jours

    L’objectif du colloque, en tant que lieu de rencontre d’approches théoriques et pratiques, est de retracer la naissance et l’évolution des représentations corporelles contemporaines à l’échelle du microscopique, et d’interroger les microformes de l’organique dans une perspective interdisciplinaire et spécifique aux médias. Dans la déconstruction du corps en tant que totalité, ses composantes visibles et invisibles, internes et externes, matérielles et immatérielles, sont explorées, spécifique à la forme médiale, en tant qu’espaces de signification. D’autre part, l’intégration ciblée de contributions artistiques, non seulement dans le sens d’un travail artistique autonome, mais aussi en tant que recherche artistique, permet aux participants de faire l’expérience sensorielle du corps en tant que matérialité.
