    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?

Chercheur·e·s libanais·es, syrien·nne·s ? Jordannien·ne·s et Français·es ont produit et mobilisé des corpus de notes et carnets de terrain ou de fouilles, photographies, films et enregistrements sonores, sites web... Ces ensembles constituent des collections qui sont susceptibles d'éclairer l'histoire de la région et d'aider à la compréhension du temps présent. Ces collections restent pourtant souvent difficilement accessibles, parfois même inconnues du monde académique et culturel et bien plus encore des différents publics concernés.

    Pop Culture in the Arabian Peninsula

    Arabian Humanities No. 14 (Spring 2020)

    The literature on pop culture in the Arabian Peninsula is particularly thin. While a rich scholarship has analyzed oral culture and vernacular poetry, less ink was spilled on those forms of culture that use new media, from tape recording to mobile phone aps and from TV production to YouTube. This issue of Arabian Humanities seeks to fill that gap and to analyze pop culture in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

    Language and Translation: Multidisciplinary Research

    Al-Kīmīya - Journal of the Faculté de langues et de traduction (FdLT)

    Reflection on the links between so-called related disciplines is not new. However, in the last decades, the works which display interdisciplinarity, pluridisciplinarity or transdisciplinarity have increased in number. For some, crossing the borders calls into question the autonomy of the disciplines, as if specialization in one area is no longer possible without recourse to other fields. It is not only a question of revisiting a much debated question, that of the historical relationship between linguistics and translation studies, but of rethinking the nature of the relations which bind one or the other discipline to other fields of study: literature, psychology, philosophy, sociology, cognitive science, culture, communication, history, etc.

    Summer School - Prehistory and Antiquity

    Mapping Ancient Gods

    ERC Advanced Grant MAP project (Mapping Ancient Polytheisms. Cult Epithets as an Interface between Religious Systems and Human Agency)

    The ERC Advanced Grant MAP project (Mapping Ancient Polytheisms. Cult Epithets as an Interface between Religious Systems and Human Agency; 741182; http://map-polytheisms.huma-num.fr1) works on the naming systems for the divine in the Greek and Western Semitic worlds, from 1000 BCE to 400 CE and views them as testimonies to the way in which divine powers are constructed, arranged and involved within ritual. The analysis deals both with the structural aspects of the religious systems and with their contextual appropriation by social participants. Considered to be elements of a complex language, the onomastic channels are related to the gods, therefore providing access to a mapping process of the divine, to its ways of representation and to the communication strategies between men and gods.Within this framework, the MAP Team proposes a Summer School in collaboration with the French Research Centre in Jerusalem (http://www.crfj.org) which covers the project’s themes and tools.

    Literary Circulations in South Asia: Producing, Translating, Preserving Texts

    This conference aims at strengthening, sometimes even initiating, interdisciplinary discussions around a notion which is crucial for the understanding of literary cultures in South Asia, beyond the chronological, spatial and linguistic boundaries. The “circulation” of persons, groups, things and ideas, has obviously played a major role in shaping the evolution of the South Asian subcontinent since the ancient times up to the contemporary period.
