    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.

    Locating the Lost Archive of Arab Cinema

    This special issue asks how our histories of Arab cinema might change if we tackle the problem of Arab cinema’s lost archive(s). From most of the films made in Lebanon prior to 1975 to the cinemas of Iraq, Yemen, Palestine, Sudan, and elsewhere, there are many reasons why films and their histories may have been lost to current memory. From structural and environmental issues and the lack of investment in proper storage facilities and maintenance.

    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).

    Films in the Mirror

    Forty years of cinema in Japan (1980-2020)

    This edition proposes rethinking the last forty years of Japanese cinema along the following lines: industrial, aesthetic, thematic and theoretical. The history of cinema in Japan is still polarised into two “golden ages”: the 1930s and the 1950s, both periods of excellence through their production and artistry. The works of Ozu, Mizoguchi, Naruse and Kurosawa naturally come to mind for their expression of what is considered as quintessence of uniquely Japanese cinema. But the impact of a golden age is discernible only when in proportion to the decline that surrounds it: from the fits and starts of primitive cinema, to the provocations of the new waves, all the while snubbed by militaristic propaganda. Historiography would nevertheless find its model in this scansion between the peak and trough. But sixty years after the end of its last “golden age”, what relevance does such model still hold, if not to deplore the former glory of a production now adrift?

    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).

    Solidarity and the challenge of the earth - towards territories of resilience?*

    Vers des territoires de résilience ?

    Comment penser les retours à la terre lorsque celle-ci vient à se dérober, vient à manquer (Charbonnier, 2017) ? Lorsque le retour à la terre, perçu un temps comme un refuge, se heurte à des épreuves : sécheresse, inondation, incendies, érosion, mais aussi conflits entre personnes, groupes, intérêts ? Ce séminaire de recherche vise ainsi à examiner, entre Europe et Japon (ou au-delà), les initiatives, les expériences, les collectifs qui se sont constitués en réponse à des crises, passées, actuelles ou anticipées et quels liens au milieu, au vivant et aux autres celles-ci promeuvent.

    Religion in Constitutions within a Global Context: Political, Legal and Cultural Dimensions

    Religions differ profoundly in terms of their impact on public life, the political breadth of their scriptures, and their foundational models. Islam, for example, is not a minimalist religion of just beliefs and rituals, rather, Islam encompasses all aspects of life in its philosophical, moral, and legal outlook. However, the issue of utilizing aspects of religion in constitutions is not exclusive to the Islamic world. Many, if not most, countries around the world have included religious texts, teachings, and obligations within their constitutions. Thus, it is necessary to deal with this issue within a global and comparative framework that encompasses its political, legal and cultural dimensions.

    Narrative forms and co-production in Arab cinemas

    Norms, constraints, and margins of freedom

    Film industry in the Arab world remains generally underdeveloped. Arab countries still depend on international film support funds, mainly European. This puts Arab producers, scriptwriters and filmmakers in a subaltern position in relation to European producers and funders, whose expectations in terms of content as well as narrative and aesthetic forms end up strongly impacting the film creation process. On the other hand, margins of freedom and resistance can be created within this system. This edition of Regards aims at addressing the complex relation between Arab cinemas and international film support funds.

    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.

    The collapse of empires in the XXth century: new States and new identities

    Le passé revisité à travers le prisme de la relecture des histoires nationales et de la construction de nouvelles identités

    Le XXe siècle a été marqué par l’intensification du processus de changements politiques. Les révolutions, les deux guerres mondiales, la décolonisation, la fin de la guerre froide, la chute de l’Union soviétique et la disparition du bloc socialiste ont réorganisé l’équilibre des forces dans le monde donnant naissance à plusieurs nouveaux États. Il s’agit de s’interroger sur quels fondements culturels et politiques les nouveaux États ont été reconstruits et comment ils ont tenté de construire de nouveaux États-nations. Ce processus est inéluctablement lié à une nouvelle interprétation du passé souvent, pour ne pas dire toujours, axée sur l’ethnocentrisme à degrés variables. Dans le processus de création de nouvelles histoires nationales, il est pertinent de prendre en considération l’appropriation des mouvements nationalistes prise par les pouvoirs officiels soucieux de rallier et de plaire aux populations sensibles aux idées d’extrême droite. Comment évoluent les rapports avec le passé impérial / colonial ? Se manifestent-ils souvent à travers la formule : « histoires nationales versus histoires impériales » ?
