    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.

    History of prehistory in Palestine – Israel

    International workshop

    Our workshop aims to shed light on the various actors and institutions who shaped the field of prehistory from the 19th century until our days. They will allow us to grasp the establishment and development of prehistoric international and local networks on the longue durée. We encourage participants to address the socio-political and cultural contexts in which prehistory was practiced and knowledge produced. Many answers to the above questions and topics of research may be uncovered in personal, institutional, and administrative archives, while others are revealed in excavation reports. This brings us to the last section of our workshop: what sources for the history of Prehistory and how can they be used? Has the writing of a renewed history of the discipline affected today’s research and how?

    Intimacies under Tension from, and In, the Arab-Muslim Worlds

    Since the advent of the affective turn, when the humanities and social sciences began to pay increased attention to the objectification of emotions, studies on the “intimate” have increased exponentially. As an analytical category, intimacy allows to question dominant and normative visions of the private and the public spheres, and to understand how they are reproduced, challenged, and/or transgressed. Intimacy can therefore be considered as a political process. By encouraging the exploration of new methods of field research, this issue of L’Année du Maghreb is also opening up to “alternative” forms of ethnographic restitution.

    Screening Crime in the Arab World

    This conference will focus on Arab crime films and TV series, by which are meant, broadly, works of fiction centering on crimes, criminals and criminal investigations (by law enforcement agencies or ordinary citizens), from the beginning of Arab cinema to the present. The aim of the conference is to study these crime dramas in their historical contexts of production and reception and to reflect on the multiple dimensions – narrative, cultural, social, legal, political, etc. – of crime and, where appropriate, of criminal investigations in Arab movies/shows.

    Whither the Spiritual? Rethinking Secularism’s Legacy in post-Ottoman Art

    This dossier examines—and challenges—the implications of art history’s secular tilt—what Shaw has called an over-reliance on “Christian-based ideas of visuality” - on the study of modern and contemporary art from the Middle East. It aims to consider what new explorations in this field can offer for rethinking both art history and spirituality’s relationship to empirical argument and experience as cornerstones of modernity in a western modality.

    From one crisis to another: politics, Russia-Ukraine war, Covid-19 and the future of tourism

    Post Crisis Tourism: Resilience, Transformation, or Evolution?

    The covid-19 pandemic has plummeted the tourism sector into a serious and unprecedented crisis. For the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) the covid-19 pandemic is «by far the most serious crisis that international tourism has faced since records began (1950) [...] The impact will be felt to varying degrees in different regions of the world." In the first three months of 2020, the tourism industry lost $80 billion, and several million jobs are at risk. As we begin to talk about decontamination, Global tourism may be facing a new challenge: the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. From soaring oil prices to sanctions, declining tourist numbers, etc., the escalating conflict in Ukraine will have an impact on tourism. Thus, after the coronavirus crisis, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is becoming a new challenge for the tourism sector. Several questions arise that we would like to explore. Rather than adopting a developmental approach, we propose to adopt a reflexive approach instead. The expected contributions will combine empirical work and theoretical reflections and can be anchored in a variety of disciplinary fields in the humanities and social sciences.

    Commitment in the face of disorder and tumult in contemporary Arab society

    LiCArC journal - the journal of contemporary Arab literature and culture

    Le numéro 10 de la revue LiCarC, revue de littérature et de culture arabes contemporaines, publiera des contributions sur lengagement face aux désordres et tumultes dans la société arabe contemporaine. Du dernier quart du XXe siècle à aujourd’hui, les sociétés arabes n’ont de cesse de provoquer des crises puis de lutter pour les surmonter, se réformer, s’adapter et se réinventer, tantôt en s’inspirant des traditions les mieux ancrées, tantôt en empruntant des éléments exogènes, tantôt enfin en créant et innovant, par déformation, dénaturation, travestissement, caricature, ou parodie. L’inventivité et la créativité dont font preuve romanciers, poètes, artistes ou anonymes mobilisés pour défendre la liberté ou lutter contre toute forme de discrimination ou de dictature confèrent à l’engagement critique dans le monde arabe une réelle efficacité, souvent redoutée, parfois jusqu’à la censure

    Jews of the Arab world, why did they leave?

    Dans la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, la quasi-totalité des populations juives ont quitté le monde arabe, dans un contexte de bouleversements entraînés notamment par la destruction des juifs d’Europe, la création de l’État d’Israël, la décolonisation et les guerres israélo-arabes. Les causes et les circonstances de ces émigrations, complexes et très diverses selon les pays, restent mal connues, mal comprises, et donnent lieu à des instrumentalisations de tous bords. Ce colloque se propose de rouvrir le dossier du départ des juifs du monde arabe dans une perspective comparatiste et ouverte aux spécialistes internationaux, à distance des usages politiques de l’histoire, pour dresser un état des lieux des connaissances sur la question.

    Theological disputes between Ašʿarīs and Ḥanbalīs and their representations from the 11th/5th century to contemporary Wahhabi-Salafism

    Ḥanbalism and Ašʿarism have been for more than a century represented as two inherently antagonistic theological schools. “Literalist”, “fideist” and “traditionalist”, Ḥanbalism is said to be the uncompromising opponent of rationalist currents. Contemporary Wahhabi-Salafism is perceived itself as a legitimate heir to this doctrine and a modern replica of this struggle. However, several academic studies are shaking up this reading grid and leading to a revision of our certainties by renewing our approaches. Through this international conference, we hope to give them more visibility, to question our representations of Ašʿarism, Ḥanbalism and the contemporary currents that claim to be the later in order to renew our understanding of theological quarrels.

    Militant cinema in the Arab world (from the 1960s to the present day)

    What about militant cinema today, in the Arab world? Are its objectives and modalities the same regarding the current political and social realities? What does commitment and activism mean today in a region witnessing during the last decade multiple revolutionary movements, generating as much enthusiasm as disenchantment, and a violent reality that casts a doubt on any hope of change?

    Articulating social and environmental history

    Near-East, Maghreb, Africa (19th-21st century)

    Cette journée d’étude a pour objectif de rassembler des historien·ne·s contemporanéistes spécialistes du Proche-Orient, du Maghreb et de l’Afrique travaillant dans une optique environnementale. Si la trame politique globale de l’histoire moderne et contemporaine de ces régions est bien connue (domination impériale ottomane ou monarchique locale, tutelle coloniale européenne, accession à la souveraineté nationale), les dynamiques sociales, juridiques et environnementales sont sous-documentées. Cette rencontre ambitionne de renforcer les liens entre des « aires » habituellement séparées tout en englobant une diversité de zones climatiques et d’écosystèmes, des côtes méditerranéennes aux forêts tropicales, en passant par les milieux désertiques. Afin de permettre un dialogue heuristique, il s’agira de réfléchir plus particulièrement aux manières d’articuler histoire sociale et environnementale, à partir de cas précisément situés et dans une approche comparatiste attentive aux sources mobilisées.

    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).

    From Tangiers to Samarkand: the East to female travellers in the 19th century

    Another definition of otherness?

    Cet atelier souhaite déplacer la question sur l’orientalisme, souvent lu au masculin, pour se demander s’il existe un orientalisme féminin, construit à la même époque, par les voyageuses, les archéologues et les ethnologues femmes qui ont aussi visité ces lointaines contrées et dont les écrits moins connus, moins cités et surtout, beaucoup moins étudiés, offriraient peut-être un regard différent sur cette altérité particulière. Les voyageuses occidentales qui sont elles-mêmes en périphérie du centre constitué par les auteurs de sexe masculin détiendraient-elles une représentation de l’Orient plus libre ? Les schémas narratifs par lesquels se dit l’altérité orientale varient-ils significativement en fonction des genres ? Si oui, pourquoi et comment ?

    1956-1958: A revolutionary period that changed Africa (and the world)

    The objective of this panel is to compare the various social mobilizations that took place in Africa during the years 1956-1958 and which arguably constitute a historical watershed. The main aim of the panel is not the making of an abstract comparative analysis, but the analysis, based on the testimonial material collected, of how the memory of these events has been structured over time. Moreover, we are interested in understanding what the impacts of these social movements were on the structuring of states and what continuities can be found between the mobilizations of that period and the ary social mobilizations that have shaken the continent in the last ten years, from the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011 onwards.
