    Africa and Latin America - transatlantic interactions

    Ce colloque vise à interroger et débattre sur les différentes interactions sociales, historiques, politiques, épistémologiques entre le continent africain et latino-américain. Au cours de ce colloque, il ne s’agira pas seulement de jeter un regard sur le chemin parcouru ni de faire le bilan des recherches effectuées au sein du Centre d’études et de recherches afro-ibéro-américaines (CERAFIA). Mais, il faudra surtout repenser le CERAFIA en dessinant un nouvel avenir et de nouveaux enjeux. Il faudra également renforcer son insertion pluridisciplinaire au sein de la recherche scientifique gabonaise, sans rien lâcher de sa perspective comparatiste et triangulaire entre l’Europe, l’Afrique et l’Amérique latine.

    Images and uses of the people in African literatures and of the diaspora

    Le « peuple » désigne, généralement, des couches sociales démunies aux contours indéfinis, aux identités mouvantes et corvéables à merci. Mot polysémique et polyvalent, « le peuple » est aussi perçu, entre autres dénominations, comme synonyme de populace, foule, masse anonyme, bas peuple, petit peuple, gens du peuple, ceux d’en-bas, basses classes et classes laborieuses. Dans les pratiques sociales comme dans les usages linguistiques, est dit « populaire » ce qui s’exclut du modèle élevé, à l’instar du parler non conventionnel rebelle au niveau de langue courant ou soutenu. Souvent associé aux marginaux, aux déclassés, aux laissés-pour-compte, le « peuple » est un sujet récurrent de l’histoire littéraire universelle, tout comme de la création littéraire et artistique d’Afrique et de la diaspora, de la période coloniale à nos jours.

    Arabic Chancellery Documents through the Prism of Historicity

    Writing, Vocabulary, Syntax, and Intertextuality from ʿAbd al-Ḥamīd al-Kātib (d. 750) to al-Qalqashandī (d. 1418)

    This conference will address the evolution of chancellery styles, their regional diversity, and the history of the rhymed prose (sajʿ), this language of authority that was supposed to obey rules definitively fixed by the Prophet or the first secretaries of the Islamic Empire. What were the technical modalities for innovation? On what semantic, lexical, syntactical, and/or graphic levels did it manifest? Rather than on norms, codes, and rules, studies will focus on writing styles, orthographic variants, atypical handwriting, deletion, the transgression of norms, semantic revitalization, neologisms, and the variety of styles for citing the Quran or referencing ḥadīth. We are seeking to renew study of a corpus considered not as a fixed and ossified text, technical and off-putting, but as a living, evolving, and diverse ensemble.

    Changes in field systems

    Comparatives Approaches: Pace, Contexts and Forms

    The aim of this conference is to revisit the issue of the evolution of field systems on the long term in different regions and contexts. The discussion doesn’t concern how we can know field systems nor does it concern field systems themselves. The purpose of this conference is to study the impact of the contexts in which field systems evolve and to analyse how and at which pace the evolutions happen. The aim is to measure the impact of “crises” (of whatever nature: economic, political, environmental, etc.) on the evolution of field systems comparing the evolutions that can be observed in different regions and/or at different times. The main idea is to ask the question of how crises and political and economic incentives have an impact on the evolution of field systems in different historical contexts.
