    « Heureux ceux qui croient sans avoir vu »

    Pouvoirs et limites, les paradoxes du sensible dans l’appréhension chrétienne du divin entre les XVe et XVIIe siècles

    In mobilizing an intermedial as well as interdisciplinary approach, the aim of these two days is to reflect together on the various solutions (philosophical, material, legal, theological, devotional, etc.) implemented by modern Christianity in order to resolve an age-old paradox: how to reconcile the nature of human perception, which is above all sensory, with that of the object it is trying to perceive, and whose divine nature is precisely infinite, unattainable and elusive ?

    Anthropologie historique des arts nomades

    Séminaire de recherche doctorale (2022-2023)

     La notion de « spectacle vivant » est juridiquement encadrée, en France, par une loi sociale et fiscale de 1999. La présence physique de l’artiste distingue ainsi le spectacle vivant des autres formes spectaculaires, tel que le cinéma. Le séminaire s’attachera à historiciser le nomadisme des arts du spectacle vivant, c’est-à-dire les processus négociés par l’artiste pour acclimater, adapter voire réinventer selon les circonstances, ses techniques du corps et de transmission, ses esthétiques et ses sensibilités. Le séminaire s’intéressera particulièrement aux politiques du regard que l’on porte aujourd’hui sur des techniques et esthétiques qui ont émergé depuis le 18ème siècle et font débat sur les scènes actuelles.

    Serving the Sultan: Religious Diversity in Gujarat Under Islamic Rule

    The Serving the Sultan conference will re-visit and cross-examine the processes that forged and shaped this religiously multi-layered, and ethnically plural society during the Islamic period in Gujarat (1298 - 1756 AD). This will be achieved by focusing on religious minorities, either in the numerical sense (Jains/Parsis), or minorities in the sense of not sharing the religion of power (various Hindu traditions). These communities’ intellectual, artistic, and literary contributions at the Islamic courts, their relation with the Islamic rulers, their everyday lives, and their mutual interactions will emerge as the common thread throughout this conference. Moreover, this colloquium seeks to explore how these local actors are embedded in trans-regional socio-political and cultural processes, thus connecting the developments in Gujarat with the broader South-Asian context.

    Impact and prospects of the Abu Dhabi declaration for the living together of Christians and Muslims

    While it is difficult to assess fully something that is still unfolding, PLURIEL 4th International Congress aims to provide a forum for the discussion and evaluation of the reception of the Document on Human Fraternity on the occasion of its 5th anniversary. What has been the impact so far of the Document on Human Fraternity concerning the coexistence of Christians and Muslims around the globe? As in previous editions, the Congress will bring together the perspectives of scholars of multiple disciplines. It will be organized according to three main areas of analysis, while allowing for overlaps: sociojuridical, geopolitical, theological-dialogical.

    Condition humaine / Conditions politiques journal, the human condition and political conditions, an international journal of political anthropology

    Condition Humaine / Conditions Politiques was launched in December 2020 by a group of researchers based in France. This new journal proposes to develop and disseminate French and international research devoted to anthropological readings of politics in the contemporary world. Large-scale planetary transformations (ecological, social, digital, economic, etc.) are reconfiguring our presence in the world and consequently, the very concept of human being as an individual and collective political subject. In today’s world new forms of politics are emerging that go hand in hand with these transformations and invites to rethink the “political” object beyond its conventional boundaries.
