    Soundtracks of Our Lives

    Music-Making and Musicians in Cinema of the MENA Region

    Interactions between film and music in the MENA region are relatively understudied, partly because music often takes a subsidiary role in film analysis, while music specialists seldom turn their attention to film. Nevertheless, a growing body of work exists on music as a form of cultural resistance at times of political upheaval, such as during the Arab uprisings and protests in Iran when voices of past musical icons have reverberated with the revolutionary mood and musicians have become symbols against political oppression.

    Archéologie de la production céramique et des espaces artisanaux : regards croisés

    From the 8th millennium BCE onwards, pottery production developed in Southwestern Asia and became a significant trait of Neolithic societies. Ceramic material is widely adopted. It represented a revolution on several scales and quickly constituted an important part of production activities. Thus, the objective of this workshop is to propose a transdisciplinary meeting about the methodologies of studying pottery manufacture sites, through examples from various contexts from prehistoric times to the contemporary period, and with a special interest in alternative approaches.

    Conference, symposium - Law

    The relevance of Eugen Ehrlich’s thought to empirical methods of law

    The year 2022 marks the centenary of Eugen Ehrlich's death. This great Austro- Hungarian jurist is often presented as the father of legal sociology. As a close observer of legal practices, he was the first to use and invent concepts that have become fundamental in legal sociology today, such as legal pluralism, living law, and legal consciousness. Ehrlich’s research revisits and reverses the illustrious tradition of the Pandects, established and perfected by legal scholars such as Savigny or Puchta. Although Ehrlich has inspired jurists around the world, he remains a little known figure in France. The present symposium is therefore devoted to reconsider the actuality of his thought, using the last chapters of his Grundlegung der Soziologie des Rechts (Foundation of the Sociology of Law) as a main reference. During the first day, specialists will introduce us to the concepts of his methodology of legal sociology and the influence he had on his contemporaries. Once the fundamentals have been established, the second day will highlight the dynamics of Ehrlich's thought for law contemporary research.

    7th Graduate Student Workshop of Center for Turkish, Ottoman, Balkan, and Central Asian Studies (CETOBaC)

Finally, by taking advantage of the diversity of the cultural areas studied, we will reflect on the transmission and circulation of sources in their temporal and spatial backgrounds.

    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.

    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.

    Animals as Worshippers of God First of All

    On Animal Piety in Islam

    In this symposium, we aim to consider the religious figure of the animal in Islam, neither as an object of worship (an idol) nor a means of worshipping (sacrificial offering), but rather as a fully-fledged subject, a worshipper of God and a model for all worshippers. What are the origin and theological posterity of verses like, “Do you not see that God is glorified by all those in the heavens and the earth, even birds in rows?” (24:41) What does believing in animal worship of God imply for the definition of religion itself?

    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.

    History, Philology and Archaeology of Zoroastrianism

    The purpose of this workshop will be to provide a multidisciplinary approach by combining historical studies, archaeology and philology, in order to contribute to the study of the ancient zoroastrian religion, ideally outside of modern Iran and India. Nevertheless, this purpose cannot be achieved without taking into consideration and a side-by-side comparison of the data from the long-standing tradition of the mentioned disciplines, collected from Iran, India and other related regions.

    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.
