    From the disconnected letters to the science of letters: a meeting of knowledges in the Middle East

    In order to interpret the disconnected letters of the Qur’an (ḥurūf muqaṭṭa‘a), Muslim thinkers have based their work on esoteric concepts, sometimes handed down from Antiquity, which have flourished in Islamic lands under the name of the science of letters (‘ilm al-ḥurūf). This international symposium aims to study the various representations of the mysterious letters within the wider framework of the science of letters, and to put them in perspective against similar readings from languages and cultures close to Arabic. Part of the symposium will be held in the historic citadel of Erbil in the heart of ancient Mesopotamia, “the land of the two rivers”, the cradle of early writing.

    Japan and its doubles. Study and representation of Japan’s territory and spatial planning through art and literature

    « Ebisu. Études japonaises » – special issue

    This special issue of Ebisu. Études japonaises focuses on the hypothetical heuristic value and the equally hypothetical performative role that artistic and literary representations, and even myths, play in the making of Japanese territory and the evolution of the reasoning and principles of their planning. Conversely, this issue also seeks to measure and analyse the impact of the dynamics of spatial planning on Japanese artistic and literary production, and even on possible inflections of the great myths that structure them.

    What future for Theater in the Arab World?

    Practices, movements and perspectives in the perpetuation of Theater production in the Arab World

    The ephemeral dimension of Theater is often considered as an obstacle for a pertinent account of past representations, hence the difficulty of writing the history of a practice when we cannot consider every moment of its creative process. We cannot also apprehend clearly its future. However, even if it does not pretend to predict the future, this call for papers wishes to question the long-term effects and the procedures that contribute to the perpetuation of Theatrical currents and productions in the Arab World.

    Les séries télévisées sous le scalpel des sciences humaines

    Depuis deux décennies, les séries télévisées s’affirment à l’échelle mondiale en tant qu’objet culturel. L’objectif de la thématique de ce numéro est de croiser les regards des chercheurs issus des humanités autour des écritures sérielles. Les auteurs sont appelés à s’intéresser à ce nouveau matériau en analysant par exemple les personnages, la gestion spatio-temporelle, la fonction des paysages, la production du scénario, au public-cible… de manière à croiser les regards disciplinaires sur ce nouveau produit culturel que la recherche marginalise.

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

    This forum represents a process of developing the field of social and human sciences, 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 different specializations (political gloom, international relations, economics, law, advertising and communication, Sociology, psychology, history, geography, archeology, 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 enforce the theoretical framework of the various purities 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.

    Languages, translation, ICTE and distance learning

    “Al-Kīmiyā”, the Journal of the Faculty of Languages and Translation at the Saint Joseph University of Beirut (issue21)

    The theme chosen for issue 21 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 de Beyrouth) is " Languages, translation, ICTE and distance learning". The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the lives of everyone around the world and the repercussions on the field of education are undeniable. Indeed, teachers and learners quickly found themselves forced to switch to a mode of teaching that had until then been reserved for special cases. Distance learning (DL) has therefore become the norm. This sudden shift certainly led to an increased use of digital tools for which users were not always well-prepared. Whatever mode schools and universities chose, synchronous or asynchronous, a forced and urgent adaptation was inevitable. Issue 21 of our journal proposes to carry out this reflection which could deal with the various challenges and risks that go along with distance education and/or the use of ICTE.

    Traumatic catastrophes

    Le 4 août 2020, à 18h07, au Liban, une double explosion secoue le port de Beyrouth. 2 700 tonnes de nitrate d'ammonium partent en fumée, dévastant sur leur chemin des quartiers entiers. Plus de 200 morts, plus de 6000 blessés, plus de 7000 familles se retrouvant sans abri : tel est le triste bilan de cette catastrophe. En prenant appui sur cet évènement mais sans vouloir s’y limiter, ce numéro d’InteraXXIons se propose d’interroger cette thématique à la lumière des sciences humaines. À travers l’histoire, plusieurs catastrophes semblables ont eu lieu (à Toulouse, à Fukushima, à Gênes, à Tchernobyl…). Au-delà de la lamentation, de la fascination, de la sidération, de la déploration, du ressentiment, que diffuse la catastrophe ?

    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.

    Beirut - the comeback

    L’appel à propositions interroge la catastrophe et la reprise, nécessaire, de la tragique explosion du 4 août, à Beyrouth. La reprise s’oppose, par définition pour Søren Kierkegaard, à la pure répétition — impossible — du même. La reprise est recréation sous un autre visage, en assumant les aléas de la mémoire, ses failles, ses imprécisions. Reprendre Beyrouth, c’est déjà se trouver sur un terrain miné, à ramasser des éclats de visages, de sens, de chronologie rompue. Reprendre Beyrouth, c’est aussi la repriser, en suturer l’architecture, l’histoire, l’héritage, la sauver de sa propre béance. L'appel, interdisciplinaire, s'ouvre à l'image (photographie, caricature, bande dessinée, illustration, dessin, collage) et au textuel (textes en prose, poèmes, réflexions).

    Languages and translation: cognitive stakes

    Al-Kīmiyā, the journal of the languages and translation faculty at the Saint-Joseph University of Beirut (issue 19)

    La thématique retenue pour le numéro 19 d’Al-Kīmiyā est : « Langues et traduction : enjeux cognitifs ». Depuis quelques décennies, les recherches en sciences cognitives s’intéressent aux processus d’apprentissage en explorant le phénomène de la plasticité cérébrale. Les progrès s’avèrent aujourd’hui réels et incontournables. Les principes fondamentaux de l’apprentissage, ou ce que Stanislas Dehaene appelle les piliers de l’apprentissage, sont bien définis et nécessitent une adaptation, une remise en question, voire une révolution des pratiques d’enseignement. L’enseignement des langues et de la traduction/interprétation ne fait pas exception à cette nouvelle donne. De plus, les recherches descriptives se multiplient pour étudier les processus de traduction et d’interprétation ainsi que ceux des phénomènes linguistiques tels que le bilinguisme ou le plurilinguisme sous l’éclairage des sciences cognitives.

    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).

    Transformation: Translation and languages

    Issue 18 of Al-Kīmīya

    Le numéro 18 d’Al-Kīmīya, la revue de la faculté de langues et de traduction de l’université Saint-Joseph de Beyrouth, reprend la thématique du numéro 17 : « Transformations : traduction et langues ». Le concept de transformation est présent dans plusieurs disciplines en sciences humaines et sociales ainsi qu’en sciences exactes. Il revêt à chaque fois une acception spécifique avec toutefois une dimension constante liée au changement. Transformer et/ou se transformer est inhérent sans doute à toute activité humaine. Le concept est réfléchi et étudié dans divers domaines allant de la philosophie et de la sociologie à la linguistique en passant par la biologie, les mathématiques et la chimie et bien d’autres. Nous proposons, encore une fois, pour le prochain numéro d’Al-Kīmīya de nous intéresser à ce concept dans les domaines des langues et de la traduction.

    Puppets on screen

    In this symposium project, puppets are considered through their tangible links with a manipulator who could be visible, hidden by a classical stage device (curtain, base...) or acting off-camera, “between the frames” (stop motion). It excludes, at first glance, the 3D modeled figurines, even if they often are mentioned as “puppets”. These creatures, made of foam, wood, paper, and who can be realistic or abstract, are considered through a media existence (television, cinema, web) which has enriched the subgenres of post-war fiction, deals with subjects that could not be filmed in real capture, or offers the opportunity to experiment a great variety of tones and points of view in video practice, without geographical or temporal restrictions. Thus, the symposium will provide the opportunity to explore fields on the margins of research as well as to present the current knowledge on the topic, eventually opening new perspectives in the studies.

    Transformations: translation and languages

    The theme for the next issue of Al-Kīmīya, the Journal of the Faculté de Langues et de traduction of the Université Saint-Joseph de Beyrouth, is: “Transformation: Translation and languages”. The concept of transformation is present in several disciplines in human and social sciences as well as in the exact sciences. In terms of languages, transformation can be seen as a reflection of the dynamic nature of languages ​​and their users. Languages ​​are being transformed but are also able to transform the speaking subjects. In translation, the nature of  the changes that the source text undergoes, is at the heart of thinking. The concepts of subjectivity, creativity, loss and equivalence have not lost their relevance and could be questioned. Is the meaning transformed in translation or is it revealed?
