    The Middle East and Europe: cross-cultural, diplomatic and economic exchanges in the early modern period (1500-1820)

    This conference is an international symposium that proposes to study the entire range of exchanges and relations established between these two areas during the Early Modern Times (1500-1820). Its main objective is to think about diplomatic, economic, religious and cultural links between Europe and the Middle East by calling upon over twenty researchers with specializations in the Arab, Persian and Muslim world. In addition, this conference will provide a comprehensive overview to date of the Arabian Gulf at a time of major political change, including the successive arrival of the European “trading empires”. It will focus on some of the methodological challenges raised by a global, connected and cross-cultural thinking approach to the History of the Middle East and Europe”.

    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.
