    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 » ?

    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?

    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.

    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 and narrative 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 conference aims at addressing the complex relation between Arab cinemas and international film support funds.

    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.

    Contemporary Amman and the Right to the City

    A city of four million inhabitants today, Amman’s expansion has become disproportionate to its urban history. Amman has experienced an impressive urban growth over the past fifty years, driven by forced migration and market laws. Developing from a small rural settlement at the end of the 19th century, Amman evolved into a regional crossroad at the end of the 20th century, and has become today a symbol for the consolidation of Hashemite rule, and as a result, the site of its contestation. Amman’s exceptional position among other regional capitals and its recent urban history has forced its inhabitants to create narratives concerning the city’s foundation, invent urban traditions, and negotiate ways of socialization.
