    The Tangier Zone Statute Centenary

    Bringing together scholars from both sides of the Mediterranean, this conference aims to renew interest in the International Zone of Tangier (1925–56). It will take place 100 years to the day after France, Spain, and the United Kingdom signed the Zone’s constitutive treaty, known as the “Tangier Zone Statute”. The agreement, which was later joined by Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Italy, subjected Tangier to a special regime: although nominally an integral part of Morocco, the city and its surroundings were to a large extent subject to the joint administration of Western powers.

    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.

    Colonialismes et colonialités : théories et circulations en portugais et français

    “Colonialismos” e “colonialidades” são termos empregues no século XX para fazer referência à dinâmica que fundou o sistema-mundo capitalista a partir das colonizações europeias em todos os continentes, perpetuando na contemporaneidade práticas de subalternidades nascidas daquele contexto. Partindo destes dois termos, o colóquio apropria-se de um vocabulário comum: aquele em que a língua portuguesa e a língua francesa se difundiram pelo mundo. Este encontro apresenta os resultados de pesquisa do projeto Circulações da literatura pós-colonial em francês e em português (CILIPO-FP). O desafio de pensar as circulações entre dois sistemas linguísticos complexos e que implicam contextos e historicidades globais, foi lançado a catorze investigadoras e investigadores em 12 universidades, do Brasil, de Portugal e de França.

    « La durabilité » : un contexte conceptuel dans l’art et le design

    Aujourd’hui, le monde vit l’impact des changements climatiques et environnementaux profonds et rapides qui ont eu des effets néfastes sur tous les êtres vivants de la planète. Pour cette raison, plusieurs pratiques artistiques se sont consacrées au traitement de la question de la « durabilité », et ce, afin de sensibiliser à la fragilité des conditions environnementales, sociales, économiques et bien d’autres, dans lesquelles l’accent a été mis sur l’exigence de rechercher des solutions radicales et prévenir pour ce danger qui nous menace. Sur cette base, les pratiques artistiques (dans les domaines de l’art et du design) préoccupées par la question de la durabilité, se sont ouvertes à plusieurs domaines pour inclure « l’art écologique » ou le « design écologique », « l’art vivant », « l’art du recyclage » ou « l’art de la récupération », afin de soulever un ensemble de questions, dont nous éclairerons certaines dans les axes de recherche.

    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”.

    Languages, literatures and peace building

    Guaranteeing a peaceful climate in a restricted or relatively large space is a challenge, which is why it is almost impossible to list in an exhaustive manner the mechanisms likely to maintain harmony between humans and/or between Nations, as these means are sometimes beyond suspicion. At the same time, it would be tedious to want to list the factors likely to break the tranquility, the state of cohesion, and to generate misunderstandings, conflicts of various kinds and, finally, war. So, how can linguistics and linguistic dynamics (in all forms and manifestations, including literature) be at the origin of social/interhuman, inter-intra-community, inter-State, inter-religious tensions...? And, how could they resolve the said crises and conflict situations? Which linguistic dynamics emerge from these? This is the challenge of this project.

    Research in Language and Religion: Approaches, Descriptions and the Advent of New Identities in Post-colonies

    Research in language and religion has addressed various issues in the humanities and particularly in linguistics. However, the realities of the post-colonial terrain give rise to more complex forms of identity construction, the expression of diversity, and the dynamic tensions between languages and groups. The aim of this call is to study the relationship between language and religious belief in linguistics as well as in other fields of the humanities. It is also a question of questioning the theoretical and methodological aspects mobilized so far by the authors and to see how they allow us to account for the language phenomena that occur in religious situations, especially when they concern multicultural communities.

    Metropolitan and suburban cities: Past, present and future

    مدينة "مقرين" نموذجا

    With the urban development that the world has witnessed since the late nineteenth century in parallel with the industrial development, and the increase in the movement of migration and displacement towards the major industrial cities around the world, the latter became crowded with population and expanded form contemporary metropolises, absorbing most of the jobs and major administrative, social and economic spaces. This caused a serious economic, social and development confusion for the countries experiencing the phenomenon, and a clear regional disparity between its depths and peripheries and between its cities and countryside. Its homogeneous balance was disturbed, and it turned into a sweeping polar cities because of the small cities and villages around it, with its acquired social and economic weight, thus affecting the local, regional and even the international geopolitical and geo-economics balances.

    Photographie, perceptions visuelles et esthétique

    « Sēmēion Med » - Numéro 8 (Février 2023)

    L’image photographique est à la fois une technique et un langage. Ce langage possède sa propre syntaxe, son vocabulaire et ses figures de style. À l’instar du langage parlé, celui de la photographie a bien évolué dans le temps puisque de simple instantané de la réalité (tel l’album familial), il en est devenu le miroir, puis l’expression d’une certaine modernité, volant enfin de ses propres ailes. Loin des influences de la peinture, avec le mouvement pictorialiste, il a développé ses propres codes herméneutiques de saisie et de compréhension du monde. On propose aux contributeurs de réfléchir sur les axes suivants : photographie et réel, photographie et sublimation du réel, spécificité d’une œuvre photographique, photographie et numérique, photographie et l’art contemporain, photographie et modernité.

    Voyageurs réels et imaginaires latino-américains en Algérie et le monde arabe (XIXe et XXe siècles)

    Les études sur la culture du monde arabe et ses rapports avec la civilisation, l’histoire, et les arts latino-américains à partir du XIXe siècle, sont très peu nombreuses. La constatation est flagrante si l’on considère les travaux sur l’Algérie des XIXe et XXe siècles. En particulier, il existe peu de publications relatives l’Algérie hormis différentes archives privées et publiques présentes aussi bien en Argentine, au Chili que dans d’autres régions du monde. Ce premier séminaire international devra permettre d’ouvrir un nouveau terrain de recherches et d’offrir une première vision globale sur l’Algérie et les pays arabes au cours des XIXe et XXe siècles, ainsi qu’investiguer les rapports des liens culturels avec l’Amérique latine.
